Emergence is a possible experiment umbrella. Could be good for exponential change thinking. Were we organize time into our routines, to relax, learn, heal, create, experiment. This project started as Wednesday Project. Where people set aside a minimum of 4 minutes to stop and do nothing.
IF Ray Kurzweil predicts the things are going to change un unfathamble ways to our civilization in 27 years, that means that things will change quickly in the next 27 years, like a slope.
It was submitted as a fantasy future tool for scheduling in "emergence". If everything is scheduled there is no time to sit and be, and no time to reflect and no time to react to changes. We would love to eventually create a vacation network that gives people days off, or challenges them to build their dream vacation on couch surfing, or AirBnB or .
As far as I am concerned, this is a brain child of James Hanusa and Alison Raby of Digital Reign. They taught that emergence is wise. They also taught that once you check in with the I, you can then check in with the we. Getting people together from different communities to collaborate. That is where this gets to the point where a lot more is possible than we are counting on.
This is an extension of the "Unplugged" experiment.
*The technological singularity is the hypothesis that the invention of artificial superintelligence will abruptly trigger runaway technological growth, resulting in unfathomable changes to human civilization.
