There is no such thing as 'a villager', because without other villagers there is no village.
There is also no such thing as 'a village'.
The visible and invisible elements of Villaging create an ever-evolving 'cyclone' of people helping each other live full-out, heal, grow up, and bring each person's potentials to life.
People come together and 'village'. This means that 'to Village' is a verb, not a noun.
A 'Village' arises through 'Villaging'.
Like a cyclone... like an ecosystem... like your mind... a 'Village' is not a thing. It is a 'dissipative structure' (per Ilya Prigogine), the appearance of a thing, manifested by the interactive flow of mutually-enhancing energies.
bring to life by collaborating so that you win, so that the others who are Villaging with you win, and so that the elegance, beauty, and evolutionary sophistication of 'the Village' itself wins (including Gaia...)
To a modern citizen, nothing could be more scary-sounding than trying to fit into a convention-bound, small-minded, forcibly-uniform 'traditional village'... which is in numerous ways, obviously already dead.
Thinking about joining a village feels scary because you are trying to do a new thing (join a village, learning Villaging) using very old Thoughtware (the teachings about reality as given to you by modern culture).
Before even thinking about what it would be like for you to live in a village or intentional community it might be wise to first upgrade your thoughtware, that is, to update what you are using to think with. School taught you what to think about: its curriculum content. Thoughtware is what you use to think with.
Look at the history of human culture, the slow and sporadic evolution:
from the 'baby' matriarchal cultures where Mother Earth provided everything for over 100,000 years in a walk-in salad bar,
to now, the emergence of 'adult' level responsibility and 'radical' level responsibility cultures... next cultures... the cultures of archearchy...
Indigenous village initiations submit you to the village traditions absolutely. The traditions tell you what to eat and when to eat it, what to wear, what every bit of your clothing and jewelry means, how to have your hair, what kind of house to build, how to grow your food, what recipes to use, what rituals to do at which times of the year, how to live, and how to die. As you become abducted into being a 'proper adult' citizen in an indigenous village you lose the opportunity to explore and expand your individual potential. All choices have already been made by the village traditions and the elders, before you were even born. The village wins. You lose. This is not a next-culture village. This is an indigenous village. Indigenous village cultures work fine in stable environmental conditions, but they do not adapt well to changes, and they do not heal tribal wars caused by culture-to-culture ('Box-to-Box') worldview conflicts, raging on, possibly as a form of population control.
Six thousand years ago, modern culture banished initiations. Indigenous traditions were laughed at as quaint artifacts, called foolish and meaningless. Through cynical, arrogant, ridicule, modern culture has step-by-step eliminated the village, the traditions, the elders, the multi-generational family, even the nuclear family, replacing all that with isolated single consumers and 'patchwork sitcom families'. Yes, modern culture has successfully escaped submitting personal ego to the will of the village and the ancestors. The result is that in modern culture, the village loses and the individual psyche wins. Personality wins. Neurotic, 'rugged' (paranoid) individualism, despair, and isolation wins. Psychopathy goes unchecked and comes out on top because psychopathy climbs the hierarchy best. This has not worked out well for the Earth, of which humanity is merely one novel species, potentially interesting, but losing favor fast.
Next cultures, 'archearchy' cultures, are cultures where archetypally initiated adult women creatively collaborate with archetypally initiated adult men. Archearchy reinstates the village circle, but in a different context, this time with nothing pre-existing in the center of the circle. There are no traditions passed down from generation-to-generation. There is no known 'right way'. The way must be ongoingly invented by the villagers. The creative force and intelligence of every individual delivering their Archetypal Lineage's services to the village is required. New kinds of next culture initiations activate unique inner and outer resources in each person so they can do what they came here to do. There are no more hierarchies. The structure of the archearchal village is the Torus, a circle of circulating circles. Using Torus Meeting Technologies, both the individual wins AND the village wins as the Torus breathes in and out. This is a breakthrough thoughtware upgrade.
When a modern-culture educated person finds their way to the edges of modern culture ("It has edges?!?") and is viscerally confronted by the utterly hopeless, miserable, humiliating, wretched truth of climate change and the resultant imminent collapse of civilization BEFORE they discover the possibility of - and commit to - a path of authentic initiations into adulthood, they will themselves collapse and become some kind of 'doomer'. Their future has been stolen away and they have no resilience to face it. They have been betrayed by trusting society at large to take care of them, and as a result they may wish to take themselves out (suicide for being so stupid) or take society out (terrorist actions). At the least they face depression, disbelief, confusion, and despair.
If a modern-culture person (or indigenous-culture person!) finds and actually begins - not just thinks about beginning but actually begins - on a path of authentic adulthood and archetypal initiations, then by the time you discover the devastating forces seriously decimating the future you thought you had, instead of feeling crushed, you feel the empowering freedom of radically-new play-space emerging. The event horizon suddenly vanishes into the far distance. You have room to move.
The hardest thing to change or escape from is the status quo, either the status quo inside of yourself as habits of perception, interpretation, and knowledge - or the status quo outside of yourself as social pressures, Zombieism, and fanatical unconscious assumption patterns. Here is the surprise: climate change demolishes it all, both inside of you and outside of you. The whole shebang - all that has been til now invented - is no longer valid.
The Rule of Law of Western Civilization is null and void because it is the fastest track to extinction of life on Earth.
Anyone following the Rule of Law of Western Civilization is criminally insane.
Anyone enforcing the Rule of Law of Western Civilization has already forfeited their life.
Nothing heretofore contrived works anymore. Every single element of human life on planet Earth is evolving to fit the radically different conditions. Your inventiveness is required. Your Nonmaterial Value is key.
The evolutionary Path jacks you into immense resources of clarity, possibility, and energy that modern culture knows nothing about. As many people as you can personally help jack-in to these same resources will not diminish the potency of the resources, nor will you ever be able to unleash too many social alchemists. You will have job security because not so many people have the balls to let go of the known and invent bridges to the next thing, helping others over those bridges even while they build them together.
Modern culture has been saturated in the Jungian Freudian psychoanalytical context of trying to figure things out. The assumption seems to be that if a person (or if 'we' as a culture... the mythical 'we') can finally understand how something has come to pass, then that person (or culture) can regain their power and be okay with it. After fifteen years of therapy, trying to understand and piece it all together, how it is working out for you? After ten Presidencies... how is it working out?
Next culture tends to apply a different approach based on reclaiming authority within a context of radical responsibility for Possibility. This is NOT about 'magically thinking', "What I believe is possible is possible." This is NOT the philosophy of The Secret.
In archearchy, Possibility is interacted with as a force of nature, what George Bernhard Shaw wrote about in his words, "This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose [which is] recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy."
Archearchy sees Possibility as a 'Bright Principle', a facet of the raw stuff the universe is made. Human Beings are designed to interact directly with archetypal domains. This is why we can relate to 'super hero' stories and legends. Yet the context of Possibility is so different from the context of analysis and understanding that a comparison may seem incomprehensible at first. Adulthood initiation into the context of Possibility involves an actual relocation of your 'Point of Origin'.
Your 'Point of Origin' is the place where you have anchored your self-image and the validity of your worldview - presumably a solid and real place, but in actuality, quite flimsy and arbitrary. Relocating your Point Of Origin during your shift to archearchy is not theoretical. Your coveted secret formula for 'how to live life' Phoenixes first into ashes, and then into something entirely new. If you have ever moved from one city to the next you might remember the transition time as an exhilarating freedom from the material confines of a single place (being 'on the road'), combined with the exhilarating terror of not truly having control over how you are going to fit in to a new Point of Origin at your new place.
Maintaining a cheerful respect for the natural discomforts of your so called Liquid State between one solid Point of Origin and another solid Point of Origin, helps you build the Matrix for becoming a next culture Being in a village cooperating with others who are also culture-shift forerunners.
Then the village makes so much sense. Your team of villagers is there to support you unfolding your personal talents and potentials because, as weird as they might seem in modern culture, your personal talents and potentials are needed by everyone in the village, turned on and flying. Welcome to your village in archearchy.
YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL BEING.
YOU REPRESENT AN AMAZING POTENTIAL.
HOW CAN WE SUPPORT YOU TO COME OUT AND CO-CREATE?
We're a bunch of Edgeworkers just like you.
We've been secretly working for decades developing authentic adulthood and archetypal initiatory processes that turn on your inner resources and connect you to incredible outer resources.
The thing is that these initiations actually work.
We support you unfolding your potentials and bringing your visions to life.
We think that the new gameworlds we help each other build will give humanity a brighter future than it now has.
How do you manufacture a resilient community that protects, defends and advances the interests of its members?
The answer is one word: Tribe.
I spell the word 'tribe' with a capital 'T' to mean 'a tribe that has consciously built itself', 'a Tribe that knows it is one of the many possible Tribes that any human being can create and be a part of'.
Most indigenous tribes do not teach 'cultural relativity'. The result is that the word for 'person' in most indigenous languages means 'the real people', or 'the human beings', and the word for 'foreigner' means 'the edible ones'.
A Tribe (with a capital 'T') lives in the understanding that the Memetic Construct the Tribe lives in together is 'bullshit'.
'Bullshit' is a technical term that means 'arbitrary', or 'fabricated out of thin air', or 'very relevant but not true'. It is possible - and encouraged - that your Villaging includes enhancing the perceptions of your Bullshit Detector.
When you have experiential clarity that your own Tribe is a gameworld which you intentionally constructed out of a context, distinctions, thoughtware, Codex, Bill of Wrongs, and Rules of Engagement, then you do not have to go around inflexibly defending your Tribe to the death because you believe that IT IS THE ONE TRUE TRIBE that lives in the ONE RIGHT WAY, like happens in child-level religions.
You just made your gameworld up out of nothing! You are proud to say that it IS bullshit!
Taking ownership of your power to build a Tribe out of nothing, anytime, anywhere, with anyone, gives you the possibility to disidentify with, and reinvent, your gameworld whenever that would become necessary or desired.
Human beings have already known this for a long time, unconsciously, in our memetic structure. Tribal organization is the most survivable of all organizational types, being the dominant human cultural form for 99.99% of human history. Like a cockroach, it has proved it can withstand the onslaught of the harshest of environments.
Global depression? Economic collapse? No problem.
Coup? Regime change? No problem.
Inquisition? Cultural cleansing? Democide? No problem.
How long do you think before humans become the next species to go extinct if the fragile ecosystems that created and continue to support us are weakened or gone? Not as long as you might dream...
In the meantime you might want to think about moving out of the city and calling together a Tribe. I make this invitation in that particular order very much on purpose.
I have tried to 'build a Tribe and then move out of the city' a number of times. Each time we failed. Finally we figured out why. A Tribe that comes together inside city limits to discuss moving out of the city has already fulfilled its purpose: to be a group that comes together in the city each week to talk about moving out of the city.
That is the purpose of the citydwellers. They are completely satisfied with a weekly-meeting social discussion Tribe. None of them actually want to move out of the city. They are fulfilled merely by talking about it together.
FACEBOOK FRIENDS VS. TRIBE
If you are like most people in the 'developed world,' you don't have any experience in a true Tribal organization. Indigenous tribes were crushed in the last couple of Centuries due to pressures from the nation-state that saw them as competitors, and by the marketplace that saw them as impediments.
All you have now it is a moderately strong nuclear family (weakened via modern economics that forces families to split apart to 'earn enough money to survive'), a weak extended family, a loose collection of friends (a social circle of 'Facebook friends'), a tenuous corporate affiliation (as a slave, even if you are a manager or in the board of directors), and a tangential relationship with a remote nation-state (they will chase after you if they detect that you are not paying your taxes). This degree of connection, for many of us, is proving to be insufficient as a means of withstanding the pressures of the chaotic and harsh modern environment.
The solution to this problem is to build a Tribe... a group of people you are loyal to, and who are loyal to you in return. In short, the need for a primary loyalty to a group that really cares about your survival and future success.
To build a regenerative-culture Tribal, you need to manufacture 'fictive kinship', that is, you need to agree on 'the story of who we are together' as a Tribe... a Tribal identity. This is more than a brand. It is more than a 'mission' and 'vision'. Your Tribal identity emerges from the resonance that people feel towards the Bright Principles of your Tribe which provides energetic food that feeds their Being and gives them a real place to deliver the services of their Archetypal Lineage.
Here are some possible new identities to shift into as a story about who you are and what you are doing together to establish a basis for the existence of your next-culture (archearchal) Tribal gameworld:
Story telling. Shared histories and historical narratives.
Initiations into authentic adulthood (not just a driver’s license and the right to drink and vote) (for more on this see Of Water and the Spirit by Malidoma Somé, Secrets of the Talking Jaguar by Martin Prechtel, and Directing the Power of Conscious Feelings by Clinton Callahan). There are rituals of membership and life transitions. Membership is earned, not given due to the geographic location of your birth, or who your parents happen to be.
Obligations. Rules of conduct and honor in the Gameworld Codex. The ultimate penalty being expulsion.
Egalitarian and often leaderless (circular) organization. Sharing is prized.
Participating in (r)evolutionary gatherings, events, and initiations as your Tribe is a true rite of passage. (R)evolutionary spaces have protocols, customs, and rules of conduct which become apparent as you shift out of a shame-culture into an appreciation-and-personal-development-culture.
(R)evolution is egalitarian and leaderless. It is spread out over different geographies. Given the efforts that have been put in to keep (r)evolution growing, it appears that people have become loyal to the (R)evolution Tribe.
How to slay the Jabberwock? Here is how. If you use your inner Sword of Clarity (and the other 13 Tools on your Toolbelt) to Hold and Navigate Spaces so you live within a set of distinctions that are beyond the comprehension of the Jabberwock. Build out and inhabit new archearchy gameworld space for real in your daily life. Then you leave the Jabberwock behind and it quickly dies of attrition. Don't be left behind playing is a stupid gameworld...
Keep sharing your new distinctions and the ways you got them. Soon you become a bridge to regenerative culture that other people can also cross over.
We can only come here together.
Your Gaiavillage Is A Field
Each Team where Villaging happens thrives in a unique Contextual field. You can smell the qualities of the field as you approach.
The Villaging 'field' serves as the 'soil' in which Villaging happens.
Rich soil can produce abundance in the same way that poor soil cannot.
Villaging starts with enriching your soil.
GROWING YOUR GAIAVILLAGE CONTEXT
The first Villaging endeavor is to prepare and enrich your soil, to deepen your Context clarifying skills.
FIELD-BUILDING CONSIDERATION QUESTIONS
Each one of the following questions (and we are sure there are many more...) is a Doorway for your Villaging Team to knock on. You probably will not be able to go through all these Doorways into the Spaces they open to, because no one is ready for everything. Nonetheless, we suggest it may still be worthwhile to 'knock on a Doorway' by asking its question inside of a Held and Navigated Discovery Space, and see where it can lead to, even if the question may not make sense to your Linear and Reasonable mind.
If a Doorway to greater Clarity and Possibility does not happen to open NOW, there is no telling if it will open NOW.
And every now and then, Doorways open accidentally. If you are Present and Attentive, leaning on the Doorway when it opens, then you fall across the threshold and through the Doorway into unexpectedly fruitful Domains. Most people out there allow their precious Attention to be sucked into Instagram surfing, so these days, you do not have to stand in line to get through amazing Doorways...
How does our Villaging promote Authentic Adulthood? Specifically, how does our Villaging promote our people to escape from the 8 Prisons?
Who are our Evolutionary Healers? Exactly which 3 Phase Healings and Self Surgeries do they provide for our Villaging, including our guests, as a Nonmaterial Value?
How do we subvert the effects of 'founder's syndrome'? In other words, how do we arrange it so that the original three Gameworld Builders step down after no more than one year, and shift identity from their hidden authority that came to them merely from being the 'founders'?
How are new Radical Responsibility Healings developed and documented? What Legend Making is done about our Healings?
How are our Villagers using group intelligence to Create Possibility for each other and for our shared gameworld?
Who are our Intimacy Journeyer guides? How are they trained? How do they share their Treasures?
How do we foster being a Creation Team (A 'Creation Team' breathes in Divergence and Convergence, has space for Radical Responsibility on the Infinity Ring, and abides by the decisions of the Node Circles who most involved in the domain decided about) and not a Uniform Team? (A 'Uniform Team' often wears the same uniform, and often does the same thing at the same time as the others on the Team, such as a corporation, army, police force, all wearing the same uniform and doing the same thing at the same time)?
How clear are we about Radical Responsibility in the Context of our Villaging? Which of the 5 Levels of Responsibility have our Villagers chosen?
How do we decontaminate 'cash' and 'banking' that comes from other gameworlds, from being used inside of our gameworld? How do we run our economic membrane office?
How do we publicly distinguish and manage unconscious Gremlin behaviors and activities? For example, gambling activities such as ' online trading', or computer sex, porn, child-abuse, partner abuse, mafia or gangster abuse, theft, sexual abuse, psychological abuse, emotional abuse, fighting?
How do we publicly distinguish and manage being surrounded by Zombie cultures? (A 'Zombie' is defined here as 'anyone who is not aware of the Values of the gameworlds they participate in')
How are we capturing and managing our fresh water supplies?
How are we reprocessing our 'grey water' and sewage? Are we using dry toilets and making compost?
How do we interface with other Cultures and other Gameworlds such as Post Office, Electric Company, Phone Service, Internet Service, City Water Regulations, Sewer Company, Regional and 'national' Governments and their various zoning laws, 'land taxes' and 'income taxes'?
How do we facilitate what we are unconsciously most afraid of: Disillusionment.
How do we recycle / reuse / and/or avoid accumulating material objects, especially 'disposables', plastics, packaging, batteries, and tools and appliances with 'designed-in obsolescence'? How do we push-back on the unmonitored systems and corporations producing such items for the devastating illusion of personal and global of 'profit'?
How are we keeping the 'surveillance state' at bay?
How do we establish and rotate Spaceholders for the various spaces and needed results? For example, does our Kitchen have a Tenzo (who does much more than a mere cook would)?
How do we manage powering our transportation and farm equipment such as tractors, trucks, diggers, and so on? To what degree are cars and airplanes used?
How do we explore and deepen Archeamory in our Villaging?
Are we thinking of developing an 'approaching period' and criteria for potential new members during which time they act inauthentically on 'good behavior' so as to manipulate us to accept them as members? Or do we Radically Rely on our Villaging to be an intelligent amoeba-like organism with a will and purpose of its own, which reaches out and spontaneously absorbs new member when they are already needed or wanted as a perfect fit?
How does our Villaging deal with dogs, cats, pets, motorcycles, skateboards, and loud music?
How many of what kind of weapons does our Villaging use? Swords? Slings? Bows and arrows? Slingshots? Blowguns? Crossbows? Rifles? Pistols? Semi-automatic? Fully automatic? Martial arts?
What sorts of alarm systems are installed? Tsunami? Earthquake? Break and entry? Closed Circuit Television?
How much cash and jewels do we allow each person to stash on the property? Do we maintain a safe? Who has the combination?
How does our Villaging cater to vegetarianism? Veganism? Light-eaters? Steak and hamburger eaters? People with dietary restrictions?
Does our Villaging allow consumption of seafood with PCBs and Dioxins? Why?
Are we sharing common food preservation, meal preparations, eating times, clean-up, and meeting spaces?
How does our Villaging train our people to deliver transformational entertainment to each other?
Who is managing our public relations with our neighbors? To what extent are neighbors invited to know about or collaborate with our Villaging?
Etc. Please add your own and tell us so we can share them with others...
By clearly answering each and every one of these questions together (in writing, probably in your Codex...) as part of your Villaging, you deepen your Context and clarify your Villaging's generated field. Then a clear strong field resonates to people around the world so that those who want to collaborate with you can more easily find and connect with you. This is a powerful Villaging principle: a clear Context causes a clear attraction field.

This is the evolving draft of the Codex for the Global Gaiavillage Gameworld.
RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
Your Gaiavillage Experiments
Your mind is yours to play with and make into whatever you want.
Or... whose mind is it?
What we've learned the hard way is that your mind needs to understand the necessity of Initiation or it won't cooperate, it won't decide to dedicate the time, energy, and money resources required to engage AuthenticAdulthoodInitiatoryProcesses.
Once you 'understand' what is actually going on... the value, the benefits, the rightness... nothing can stop you.
Understanding grows through study and introspection.
Below are powerful Experiments to unleash more informed Gaian Villaging...
BRING A SMALL TEAM TOGETHER (3 PEOPLE) TO UNFLINCHINGLY EXPLORE WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON SO AS TO BECOME DISILLUSIONED
Villaging while standing on so many deep and vast illusions forces you to look away from reality. Your Village can then only duplicate the vast and complex insanities of modern culture... painted green.
This experiment is to meet online-or-offline one evening each week (e.g. Thursday evenings, from 19:30 to 22:00) to slowly read-and-feel your way through every word and video of the What Now? website for the purpose of being completely disillusioned.
It could be (will be...) shocking to discover how many illusions, lies, deceptions, and fantasy worlds commonly form the basis of modern citizen's lives... including your own.
The intention behind this experiment is to safely and gradually allow your current worldview to crumble into dust beneath your feet, and then wait patiently, huddled together, while you continue to research. Eventually, probably, you will notice that a new basis is forming, leaner, clearer, harder, more precise... less susceptible to Bullshit, and relatively irrefutable. This reduced basis provides enough solidity for Archearchy Villaging to stand upon.
Enduring the delusion-subverting processes together... may take months... even a whole year. It is worth it. You will never regret your work together in this Team. There will be many Liquid States along the way. Your friendships will grow deeper. You will learn so much that no one ever told you before.
We recommend that you join the Emotional Healing Process Collaboration Group on Telegram at this link: http://t.me/joinchat/WC5Px3vhJLpGU-Cz, and an online EHP Dojo, so that you realize how many people are also doing this work in parallel with you and are there to support you, as you can be there to support them. We do this work together.
Write your first article almost immediately, titled something like: A Transformational Challenge, or, Facing The Dark, or, What My Momma Never Told Me and My Poppa Never Knew...
Write your second article after six-to-ten meetings, after you have learned to Consciously Feel angry, sad, and scared, can experience these at high intensities, and can communicate these Feelings and Emotions clearly and responsibly with each other in your Team. Title it something like: How Deep Is The Rabbit Hole?, or The Joys Of Disillusionment, or, Taking A Holiday From Pretending That Everything Is Going To Be Okay.
Write your third article after you have changed your mind about being born so that you can spend your life as an economic slave of a capitalist patriarchal empire that does not value life - or value you. Title your third article something like: Escaping The 8 Prisons, or, How I Am Building My Gaian Gameworld, or, Calling My Tribe.
In the Proof field while registering Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00 in your free account at StartOver.xyz, please give the links to your three articles online. Thank you. This Experiment is worth 18 Matrix Points.
COME TOGETHER AROUND A GROUP COMMITMENT TO HOLD AN ADULTHOOD SPACE FOR THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR VILLAGING
Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00
Adulthood is not a given... it is an option. Most people have never seriously considered this option. Authentic Villaging begins at Adulthood... but how can you detect if you are there or not? The first requirement is your Team, who agrees to give each other kind-hearted yet clear Feedback and Coaching about exactly where each person is with regards to Adulthood. This is in order to have an accurate 'X' on the map, a solid starting point to work from. Authentic Adulthood has easy-to-identify criteria. Here are a few criteria you can begin with:
This experiment is: to once a week for 3 months meet with your Team for exchanging clarity, and designing next-step Practices, for relocating your Point Of Origin into authentic Adulthood in your daily personal, professional, and private lives. After your TWELFTH meeting, please enter Matrix CodeGAIAVILL.00 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. In the Proof section, please describe in very few words your most powerful Adulthood Practices. This Experiment is worth 12 Matrix Points.
AS PART OF YOUR VILLAGING, EMPOWER EACH OTHER TO MAKE YOUR NEXT ADULTHOOD INITIATORY PROCESSES
"Being born, or surviving school, or becoming a senior does not make you a human being. If it is true that humanity is a skill and not a right, then there are very few people among us who are mentors and teachers of the epic skill of being human. This means that modern culture is inundated with fifty-year-old adolescents who in their peak earning years are taking as much as they can for themselves and their loved ones... This does not have the makings of an inevitably good outcome for anyone."
This Experiment is to strategize the next 3 Authentic Adulthood Initiatory Processes that you intend to do this year and arrange to do the first on your list. Please remember that you are not yet prepared to do most of the Initiations suggested at the Initiations website. You have not yet build enough Matrix in your Being to hold the Consciousness that the Initiation offers. This is not an amusement park with rides that anyone over one meter tall can go on. Each Initiation clearly calls for Matrix Building preparations. Get your Team together to Build Matrix before each of you goes on your next Initiation.
After the Initiation, please register Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. In the Proof section, please name your Initiator, and list the Matrix Building preparations that you made. This Experiment is worth 3 Matrix Points.
ASK GAIA WHAT A GAIAVILLAGE IS, HOW IT WORKS, AND WHAT YOUR PART IN A GAIAVILLAGE IS
Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00
JOURNEY INTO THE EARTH AND ASK FOR SPECIFIC GUIDANCE ABOUT HOW YOU CAN SOURCE YOUR GAIAVILLAGE
Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00
DEEPEN YOUR TEAM'S CONTEXT-HOLDING AND POSSIBILITY-CREATING IN A WEEKLY DISTINCTIONARY STUDY GROUP
Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00
The Thoughtware being used in your Villaging Team determines the Context you are able to bring to life, and what you are able to create together. Standard Human Intelligence Thoughtware (S.H.I.T.) carries so many inhibiting assumptions and hidden self-deprecating declarations that every meme of it needs to be questioned. This Experiment is to meet once per week for 1.5 hours for a year (or however long it takes...) to work your way from start-to-finish through the Distinctionary. This is a Distinctionary Study Group.
The Distinctionary contains many of the Possibility Management Distinctions that have been distilled since 1975 as Thoughtware for Next Culture - Archearchy - the Radical-Responsibility-Adulthood-Initiation-centered culture naturally emerging around the world now that Matriarchy and Patriarchy have run their course.
During your Distinctionary Study Group meetings, use the front of the room as a stage where you each take turns using the new Distinctions in real-life role-play situations, with Feedback and Coaching about what each person is actually creating compared with what they think they are creating on the stage.
After completing the 'Z' section of the Distinctionary, have a Distinctionary Celebration Party, and then please register Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. In the Proof section, please name your five favorite or most inspiring Distinctions. This Experiment is worth 12 Matrix Points.
It can be excellent to work in 3Cells (dedicated groups of 3 people) to help each other through the unconscious fears of learning something you were not aware of that you were not aware of before.
3Cells provide their fellow members with deep courage and true camaraderie during the surprising discoveryjourneys.
This Experiment is to challenge each of your 3Cells to earn 1500 Matrix Points during the next 6 months (roughly 500 Matrix Points per 3Cell member... it does not have to be perfect). We think that you will be surprised by how visibly and how valuably the new Matrix will serve in each person's life, in how they can be more Present, Connect better, communicate better, and create more valuable contributions in your lives together.
After your 3Cell reaches its 1500 Matrix Points, have a 1500 Matrix Points Celebration Party, and then please register Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. In the Proof section, please name your two most inspiring or challenging Experiments and what you learned. This Experiment is worth 15 Matrix Points.
PRACTICE HAVING 'FAKE' TORUS TECHNOLOGY MEETINGS WITH NODES THAT CONVERGE AND DIVERGE WHILE YOU PUT 'POOP ON THE TABLE' TO CREATE CLARITY AND POSSIBILITY
Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00
Organize a series of 10 'practice' or 'fake' Torus Meetings with your Villaging Team to learn how procedures go and which Tools and Processes to use, before they become truly necessary.
One Torus Convergence should last between 90 minutes to 120 minutes. Rotate Spaceholders. Keep referring back to the various Tools and Procedures given on the Torus Technology website. Try to put relevant, core, intense, difficult problems on the bench to work with. Since these 10 sessions are 'practice sessions' feel free to go to the edges and make mistakes. Try new things. Fail, then after Feedback and Coaching, start all over again at the beginning by using a Do-Over as if you did not just do the previous meeting.
After completing the the 10th Test Torus Technology meeting, each participant can register Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00 in their free account at StartOver.xyz. In the Proof section, please name one issue or solution from each of the ten Torus Technology meetings. This Experiment is worth 10 Matrix Points.
USE GAMEWORLD BUILDER THOUGHTMAPS, PROCEDURES, AND DISTINCTIONS TO DESIGN A GAIAN GAMEWORLD IN WHICH YOUR GAIAVILLAGE THRIVES
Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00
To update the insight from R. Buckminster Fuller:
"You do not change things by fighting against the existing gameworlds. You change things by creating and inhabiting new gameworlds that make the existing gameworlds irrelevant."
You've probably heard: "Build it and they will come."
What you might not have heard is: "If you don't build it, nobody even has a chance to come!"
This Experiment is to go full out to learn gameworld building skills, and then use them!
Please read through Gameworld related websites to clearly and full understand:
How to avoid establishing a mixed-Context gameworld.
In other words, do not be left behind playing in someone else's crippling gameworld. Build your own gameworld that heals and empowers you.
After accomplishing some degree of success with your Team in each of the 10 challenges above, each participant can register Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00 in their free account at StartOver.xyz. In the Proof section, please give links to your various substantiating creations. This Experiment is worth 10 Matrix Points.
HEAL EACH PERSON'S THOUGHTWARE, BELIEFS, STORIES, ASSUMPTIONS, CONCLUSIONS, ETC. THAT BLOCK THEM FROM USING ARCHIARCHAL ECONOMICS
Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00
Ordinariness and mediocrity - such as the economic slavery of modern culture - persist due to unconscious habit, momentum of slovenliness, and massive unconscious fears promoted by a corporate-controlled media. By continuing to use Standard Human Intelligence Thoughtware (S.H.I.T.) you can only reproduce what you have always reproduced. You duplicate the capitalist patriarchal empire as a pawn in someone else's gameworld. This Experiment is to start over again from the beginning. Make no Assumptions. Invent each step of the way for you to live, then implement it completely. Learn how to create ArchIarchal Economics using Nonmaterial Value. Confront each piece of each person's Thoughtware each time they try to use it to undermine Archearchy Economics. This will take you three to six months of ongoing Thoughtware investigations.
After you have a month of successful Archearchy Economics behind you, each person in your Team can register Matrix Code GAIAVILL.00 in their free account at StartOver.xyz. In the Proof section, please give links to an article your have written, a video you have made, or a workshop you have given and recorded about your Experiments in Archearchy Economics. This Experiment is worth 9 Matrix Points.
