Introduction Having developed the ideas of co-intelligence (accessing the wisdom of the whole on behalf of the whole) for almost 20 years, I have recently had an epiphany about how we are all the emerging consciousness of evolution, itself. I have been called to give my life over to the invocation of a movement to embody and act on that insight. This includes helping convene a number of strategic conversations and researching evolutionary dynamics that can be used to evolve social systems consciously. Central to this is the power of conversation to enable collective intelligence, wisdom, and creativity.
Interests conscious evolution (of social systems), awakening systems, co-intelligence, collective wisdom, global crises (as opportunities), imagineering, multi-modal wiki stories
