 To me, all these point to the need for a ‘critical mass’ of people with good intention and good practice to gather together; to be present together. Just as in a nuclear reactor, the reaction can fail either because there are not enough people, or because they are not close enough. Or for a more topical analogy, for a meme to go viral, just as with a biological virus, there have to be enough people who get it in the first place, and sufficient density to the connections between people to pass it on with R > 1. To me, all these point to the need for a ‘critical mass’ of people with good intention and good practice to gather together; to be present together.

-Thus, I see two directions proceeding hand in hand. One is to bring together people with value similar enough that they are likely to be able to form the kind of collective I've envisaged; and the other is to develop and practice the kind of practices which constitute the active connections. As I've suggested before, the first could be done, slowly, by people's unaided networking around spaces such as [[https://www.thestoa.ca/|the Stoa]] which is, in the words of Peter Limberg right here, “serving as a beacon to find the others”. I see a much quicker and more effective process being something more like my [[t:choice|system of CHOICE]]. For the second, I see Collective Presencing and all its offshoots as pointing the way.+Thus, I see two directions proceeding hand in hand.

 Maybe that is the end of what I needed to say about all this, for the time being. I want to practice more and live more, not just think and write! Maybe that is the end of what I needed to say about all this, for the time being. I want to practice more and live more, not just think and write!
