As always Jason Silva tries to outperform himself, but raises a meaningful question: Are you in the human project? Am I?

Update: In addition to my first video post, I am in violent agreement with how he perceives the world, to understand is to perceive patterns.

Another contribution of one of my students, who found this master piece on youtube. I was deeply moved, not only by the piece of art, but also by the idea and vision of this project. Watch, enjoy, and be amazed how 185 voices in 12 countries co-create a virtual choir of 243 tracks. How beautiful!

Happy holidays, keep sharing the wonder-full!

Please enjoy this innovative narrative of an old story, even if you are not part of this special cultural heritage of the past or the present, you might be part of the shared future cultural heritage in a connected world. This is the 2.0 digital story of nativity:

The first person who showed it to me, was one of my students. So, thank you all for sharing, co-creating, co-inspiring, and co-surfing the edges of chaos with me 😉 May the next year 2012 be as exciting as the still current. I am looking forward to the next adventures and serious games with curiosity and playfulness. To all my family, friends, colleagues, students, customers, business partners, networkers, and every sentient being, HAPPY holidays.

Within the upcoming EMCSR 2012 European Meetings on Cybernetics and Systems Research in April 2012 in Vienna, Austria, the Change the Game Initiative invites you to be part of an exciting gathering, a symposium in co-operation with the InCo Movement and the Giordano Bruno GlobalShift University:

“Enabling organizations for thrivability: New perspectives on form, structure and process in favor of human and societal prosperity.”


  • will be invited from the academic areas of natural, biological, social, and technological systems to enrich these knowledge realms.
  • will be invited from the practical areas of design, creative industries, integral development, management, experiential psycho-therapy, and applied social anthropology to inform and be-informed by each other’s perspectives.


This symposium invites the participation of creative transdisciplinary thinkers and practitioners from all fields of inquiry and practice. Thinkers, designers, practitioners and researchers with experience in the sciences of life, energy, matter, cognition, cosmology as well as the social sciences and the humanities are welcome. 

The reunion offers a unique opportunity to come together and share a variety of viewpoints on a broad range of issues relating to emergent patterns, processes and relationships of life and living systems. Our wish is to provide a playspace where we can jointly curate the emergence of more sustainable and even thrivable systems. (more…)
