    EP18. Ferananda Ibarra and Arthur Brock: Decentralized Technology for the Post-Industrial World

    EP18. Ferananda Ibarra and Arthur Brock: Decentralized Technology for the Post-Industrial World

    This episode is with Arthur Brock and Fernandana Ibarra of Holochain and the Commons Engine. Ferananda and Arthur have been working for over a decade as visionary social innovators in the space of currency design and decentralized technologies that are fit for ushering in the emerging post-industrial economy.

    Currently they are launching Holochain, a paradigm-busting sustainable alternative to blockchain. Holochain, based on principles of nature and living systems, is growing an ecosystem of truly P2P distributed applications. We discuss why this is so important in light the pernicious issues of surveillance capitalism that the film the Social Dilemma brought to awareness yet how the film came up short in its proposed solutions.

    In this episode we explore the intersection of technology and consciousness and their möbius strip relationship in our cultural evolution. We talk about how centralized technologies inherently concentrate power but that we can choose new means of human coordination and signaling that are more life-affirming and that can enable a flourishing of human creativity.

    EP15. Vicki Robin: Insights from Talking with Cultural Scouts

    EP15. Vicki Robin: Insights from Talking with Cultural Scouts

    This episode is with my friend and fellow podcaster Vicki Robin. Vicki is a prolific social innovator, writer and speaker, activist and life long learner. She coauthored the international best-seller "Your Money or Your Life." I decided to reach out to her to compare notes and ask her about insights she has gained from her 9 months of asking the question “What Could Possibly Go Right?” the name of her podcast.

    Show notes:
    Vicki's main insights:
    1. History Matters — tracking the patterns of the rise and fall of civilizations over time; how the events of 2020 are changing her life recognizing privilege; the Victor Frankl choice; there is a humility that comes when we realize history matters
    2. Stories or explanatory frameworks matter — especially the indigenous stories of how to live well on the planet; how to take only what we need and leave the rest; indigenous stories are about their screw ups, they got wise by learning from their mistakes; e.g. maturation or developmental frameworks; Peter Buffet uses the birth canal; the AA framework for people who have been addicted to oil and money
    3. Solidarity matters — the justice movement and the climate movement MUST come together; one of the benefits of Covid is that put vulnerability to external forces to those who thought they were protected (ie white people)
    4. Systems matter — we need to get out of our habit of linearity when existing within complexity; everything is connected to everything else
    5. Ethics matter — original instructions and first principles; society is constructed in ways that force people to violate their moral codes in service to surviving; redemption is possible and we are on a redemption path — we need a truth and reconciliation
    6. Empathy matters — if we can’t feel the consequences of our actions we cannot get to the truth; public execution of George Floyd was a collective feeling
    7. Power matters — the embodiment of our power when it’s in service to something that we love that is greater than ourselves; power is the ability to move things; power wed to empathy and part of what makes a cultural scout, they care about something enough to wield power
    * Framework that Vicki like is the formation of a cell and the movement from the me to we; so much resolves itself in the realization that I- am you and you are me; we can’t survive without acting from this knowing/reality; it’s like an autoimmune disease that we recognize less and less of ourself as we go deeper into mistrust and polarization
    * The pressure of modernity is a forge pushing us through this birth canal
    * Social movements are the green new shoots of what’s happening and what’s going right now — I see us all claiming our power that may have not been possible without 2020; these movements have taught us to be strategic; we can’t just be nice people
    * Vicki’s list of scouting skills:
    * ambiguity
    * humility
    * inquiry
    * engagement
    * urgency within patience

    * Einstein after the bombing of Hiroshima “Everything has changed except the way we think."
    * Today’s political situation is illuminating what we already know: that it’s not working
    * The fundamental human project requires 1) recognition of the inevitably of diversity and 2) the overwhelming need for commonality/unity and this is what has made the species successful on a planetary scale
    * individuation and integration
    * crisis of power and crisis of rights
    * we need to get together and find ways to turn our diversity into a foundation for unity
    * one of the things that prompts our learning is contradiction, things that don’t match
    * The Buddhist middle way is a higher middle ground that is the basis of emergence
    * Isiah Berlin — politics is inherently unscientific, unphilosophical https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaiah_Berlin
    * power-based vs. rights-based vs. interest-based approaches to problem solving and conflict resolution
    * power-based is inherently win-lose; domination and subordinate
    * rights-based is voting; adversarial; still win-lose and power trumps rights
    * interest-based is not what you want but WHY you want it and nobody has to lose
    * these map onto forms of democracy
    * interest-based democracy requires dialogue and is non-adversarial
    * this will require us to develop the skills for such social problem solving without domination and subordination
    * the job is to come up with consensus and agreement
    * the problems facing the planet require this higher order skill
    * neurophysiology of conflict, generally speaking there are two responses:
    * neurotransmitter for fight or flight is adrenalin
    * neurotransmitter for tend and befriend is oxytocin
    * globally we are feeling the pressures of change that scares people and we don’t have the skills yet to solve these bigger problems
    * we are hitting the wall of functional rights-based democracy and we don’t yet have the skills for an interest-based democracy and that’s why we’re stuck
    * need to ask this third category of interest-based questions
    * mediation butterfly effect

inspiring and invitational conversations

So grateful for these inspiring and invitational conversations that bring me to ground when I feel like I might just get lost in the grief and the remorse. Grateful for the authentic and resonant voices here, and for Katie's humility, skill, and love in navigating these conversations.

kabzj ,

Silence in the desert of noise…

In rare form, the interviewer allows silence to rest comfortably when it emerges naturally in the conversation, allowing the speaker, interviewer, and listener those precious moments to really take in, consider, and appreciate the inquiry.

This is a time for understanding, not just learning, but learning to listen to one another and let our own realizations mix together in a finer stew of emergent possibilities in these volatile times.

Lobsterinbrazil ,

Timely and deep

I am really appreciating the voices and messages coming through this series of interviews. With so much complexity and conflict arising in our world, I feel heartened by with wise and articulate speakers. Grateful to Katie Teague for this labor of love.
