collective holons

Holons which collect together pull the overall development of all holons within the collective up to where the 'norm' is. The collective aspect of holons seem to be intrinsic to the evolutionary drive, it is a determinant of the directionality of evolution itself. If we say that the dominant (or prevailing) level of development is at blue/orange capacity, we know we can expect more and more young kids to hit worldcentric earlier than ever, given what they are growing up in and surrounded by.

If we create or allow for the emergence of integral in the collective, and let that grow it would eventually become bigger than what is dominant now, and actually 'pull' the world into integral. ['grabs you by the neck and pulls you to that level' KW in KC.] So it is also possible to encourage the growth of holons in levels beyond integral (including non-dual).

The idea that there will always be LESS people at higher stages is not absolutely true because in humans these stages are transitional, in the long term no particular age group is ever stuck at one level for very long. This does not conflict with the tenets either.

But this does mean that both 'movement' (or evolutionary drive) and the development of holons must go hand in hand; they occur simultaneously. So if we desire to see I-I and/or integral succeed, (i.e. we want movement) then the holons collectively need to be given room to grow.

Now these hubs (vs. nodes), they are not higher as I was postulating before but they have something 'extra' that makes them with the cohesiveness of a collection of holons. In our MARKETING, I'd say we must aim to find catalysts of all kinds for the development of a holon in social dimensions (or collective holons), whether they be specific individuals of higher development, tools, processes, artifacts or even systems (such as II as a business). (Is INaked an artifact, and IU a tool?)

found this interesting too:

    I learnt to drive automatic first, when I was 22 years old.

    I just learnt to drive manual/stick-shift last year, when I was 26.

    Totally realistic to learn it later!

    At Apple??? Can you work your magic and get me an iphone before the 29th? ;)

    Do me a favor and read my latest private post. I don't want to explain all over again what I'm going thru right now...

    To ensure I'm constantly learning. :-)

    Chicago's been good - except I still haven't fully adapted to the winters yet!

    I wrapped up my first year and am now back in the Bay Area doing a summer…
