Meta-Field

"The Map Is Not The Territory," 2002-2006
Metamedia, Mesh-Mashup, Meta-Identifiers(?), MetaSystems(?), Network Media
New Media, Multimedia, Intermedia, Telematic, General Semantics, Conceptual, Abstract...

"We say the map is different from the territory.
But what is the territory?
Operationally, somebody went out with a retina or a measuring stick
and made representations which were then put on paper.
What is on the paper map is a representation of what was in
the retinal representation of the man who made the map;
and as you push the question back,
what you find is an infinite regress, an infinite series of maps.
The territory never gets in at all. […]
Always, the process of representation will filter it out so that
the mental world is only maps of maps, ad infinitum."

- Gregory Bateson (1904-1980), Anthropologist, Cyberneticist, Linguist, & Social Scientist

Grassroots Organization and Connection | comments
"Magnifying the Imagination: Imaginify has created a model, shown above, that is also inspired by complexity theory, to help grassroots creative organizations (charities, artists, Open Source practitioners etc.) connect, share knowledge and ideas, and collaborate."

Creative Stimulus "The free flow of code is an increasingly important social and artistic force." - Spot Draves, PhD. When computers "sleep", a screen saver comes on... Electric Sheep is a free and open source distributed screen-saver that harnesses idle computers with the purpose of evolving and morphing fractal animations known as "sheep". They are modeled in a 26- to 65-dimensional space and executed by the collective power of connected Unix machines.

Open Intellect Richard Davidson, a neuroscientist at the University of Wisconsin has used fMRI and electroencephalography (EEG) to image the brains of six Buddhist monks, during and outside of meditation. When Davidson asked the monks to induce a state of compassion in themselves, they showed a much greater shift toward left frontal brain activity than subjects untrained in meditation. A new project, OpenEEG helps to give resources to create low cost EEG devices and free software (GPL licensed) to go with it.

Creative Stimulus Some real open source fun... "If rock-paper-scissor is too simple for you, then you can try David Lovelace’s "Rock, Paper, Scissors-15" with 1.3 trillion permutation and 105 possible outcomes..." (from neatoram.com). Kaliya Hamlin (aka Identity Woman) even blogged the link we sent her... to check out the various permutations Click 'Read More!'

Resonant Guide The New Library of Alexandria, is dedicated to recapture the spirit of the initial organization, which is estimated to have stored at its peak 400,000 to 700,000 parchment scrolls. The library's destruction remains a mystery. The dream of rebuilding the Ancient Library of Alexandria and of reviving the legacy of that great center for learning has long enticed the imagination of intellectuals and scientists all over the world. It is now a reality.

Emerging Systems WolframTones is based on a core discovery of Stephen Wolfram's A New Kind of Science: that in the computational universe even extremely simple rules or programs can give behavior of great complexity. Each composition is produced by running a program found by searching the computational universe, taking the pattern the program produces, and converting it to a musical score. WolframTones uses a type of program known as a one-dimensional cellular automaton, or Wolfram automaton, studied by Stephen Wolfram since the early 1980s.

Community Thrivability UPDATE: TRYON LIFE COMMUNITY FARM HAS BEEN SAVED! Portland is a future that continues to nourish innovation and livability. Nestled into Tryon Creek State Park in S.W. Portland is the intersection of rural, urban and wild. An Open Commons demonstrates how multiple communities can efficiently live, work, and play in urban density while learning to heal the land, cooperate with each other and change the world.

On this rare landscape, people are coming together to teach and learn the skills needed to ensure a sustainable future city. Tryon Life Community Farm is seven acres, surrounded by 670 acres of state park. Rolling wooded meadows. Fruit trees, grape vines, vegetable gardens, a bonsai nursery...
