Design……

Life….Design..

Thinking together……

Coaching ourselves…Mintzberg….Swarming and collective intelligence…..

If the product is in the process …..Chanakya is the greatest ……….of all Process Philosophers

Chanakya the Great ….~ Chandragupta~Bindusara~Ashoka

Thakshasila …Taxila…..was not far off…

Aristotle ~ Alexander ……process was but a blip ……in comparison… …..glorified disproportionately……

And then Astrology took over…?

Astrology scores better …far better than religions…when replicability in science is < one in four….astrologers…priests….god men/women…rejoice …at the demise of the scholar…..when

the scholar is tagged ….> east/west…

Thinking tagged..> Biological…Physics thinking…..

Intelligence > intelligences

Process …..not processes

Alfred North Whitehead ……> true North > …..East

China has caught up ……with Process Philosophy ….IF ……that happens here Sanskrit ….processed…dead….will resurrect …not in letters ..in spirit ….Quality will catch up with quantity

The elusive …. Indian edge ✌🏿️

Let us admit it….we are

Notwarriors ..cannot fight a good fight …

Notbrahmin….hand in glove with business

Notvysya …..good businessmen…..

Charity….doles…CSR…are admission that we are by ‘nature’ ….. anti….social….

The Realshudra considers you ……an untouchable ……a parasite

Proof is in the pudding

No more colours…..it is all white ….viewed through the four lenses ….lions ..aspects of equal importance of the Lion capital of Asoka…

If this reads like code it is by design..

I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass… ……My life has been whim — impulse — passion — a longing for solitude — a scorn of all things present, in an earnest desire for the future……1844 – Edgar Allan Poe

Long living particles

Particles tickle
Tickles to molecule
Molecules giggle
Smile ….laugh…roar….

We fail to hear
Fail to see…the sea

Fish in the water
Failed water
So she designed the flying fish

-Anonymous

As most fish fail water …. humans fail to be human….therefor the Immortality Quotient ……..or…Contextual Intelligence

Many gods die..some very young…some last a little longer on our journey to adult….hood….a few particles stand out from the mass ….remain light houses …..pointing to the future

The how to dream of joining the 1 % …the elite…lasted for the first few months of B School….over three decades ….and ..Enron….Lehman Bros….VW……occupy Wall Street …we don’t need to hypothesise that the 1 % ….’fits’ and dream merchants …will take us to the future

We are in search of a few misfits….exceptions ..longer living particles ….much < 1% …who eclipse the 1%…in the search for the true normal…..natural….where no man/woman has gone….peaks of personal performance…piece together the fragments to craft a vision of the blue yonder..

We need to qualify normal and natural with ‘true’….is our dilemma….Only the normal can aspire to be the super normal ….

PC Devassia..100……………….Process/Sanskrit
Bede Griffiths ..86……………..Return/Centre
Verghese Kurien ..90………….Work/Action
NS Ramaswamy..86……………Indian

I didn’t have to wander too far ….for these exceptions from the immediate past…..I saw the first at work during the last 25 years of his life. The second one lived for many years on the other side of the mountain where I grew up. Many years later I was introduced to his work by the first. The third…I worked in the dairy system for seven years..met him once…30 minutes..may be ..but for the last …whom I met for the first time in B School and over many sessions months before his passing away…..I wouldn’t be at this…

The four meet our multiple criteria …human ..global…Indian…for the IQ…….relatively immortal….lighthouses from the immediate past ….pointing to the blue ocean of personal productivity….contextually intelligent

Four will not suffice the measure of requisite variety …Ashby

Hartshorne ..103…………..Creative synthesis
Thomas Berry 94………….Ecology
Whitehead..86……………..Process
Ross Ashby 69….Requisite variety/Complexity
Deming..93………………….Quality
John Rawls 81………………Position
Elinor Ostrom…78………….Commons
Jeanne Calment..122……..Life expectancy
Bill Mollison ..88 ……………Design

Hope you took a look at the wiki pages.

Let us now do a creative synthesis…
0f these people …their work ….since most gods failed our fitness test …of. ..requisite variety …..to survive….

It takes centuries for a culture to graduate from reason to process….Spinoza to Whitehead…by the time reason is buried….commons collapse ……emergence of new commons…Wiki?

“But the problem is the one-eyed following the blind: these self-described members of the “intelligenzia” can’t find a coconut in Coconut Island, meaning they aren’t intelligent enough to define intelligence hence fall into circularities — but their main skill is capacity to pass exams written by people like them”……..IYI……… – Taleb

(That coconut island stuff…was it a dig at …God’s own ….Kerala )

Taleb wouldn’t make it to our list unless he outlives Calment ……….he too talks about the < 1 %……..Jobs, Musk, Kurzweil et al…all fail

Between the mediocre and the exceptional is a gap of 25 + years…..mediocre adds no value whereas exceptions achieve relative immortality ……till some other exceptional go beyond them

IQ = Age at death…years of productive work…resilience

Work speaks for …defines ..the person….What we call work is not work …..waste? Human is the only species that create waste. Is this to be human?

We are what we do…of course this will be quite inconvenient to accept….

Cognitive Creative (the artist) AND Confident …..there is no alternative …
