How you can create the future…now !
We needs words to…
Personally the most terrific thing in Orwell´s 1984 was that words where deleted in each new edition of the dictionary…and if you have not words…how can you express ideas ?
I speak four languages and I am studying my fifth and I know how is frustrating to have ideas ,( in your language),but not being able to express them in another.
Once King Carl V told that you are how many languages you speak but I personally believe that you are how many skies you dreamed under their stars.
Words, we told words and the problem is if you do not have a word to express an idea you cannot show a vision.
For that we can think to a solution in a world that desperately needs new words !
The future is never only one.
We have the choice to create the future we want starting from our past because the only and real tradition is that anything,(someday),changes and the only evolution is inside the tradition.
I firmly believe that revolution have only a retroactive value because the day we see a revolution to achieve its goals this “simply” means that something that yesterday was an exception today is the NEW rule.
Let´s take internet. Internet can be also a thermometer of the souls and the emotions in the web.
How ? Again words…if we measure the most used words this metric tells us what the world is feeling and thinking if not dreaming.
Starting from this idea we can realize that we are able to create words that will originate emotions till someone will feel the need to realize them.
That day these worlds will be less revolutionary and more part of our daily life but that day someone will start again and again…and again…
And this is the solution !
If you do not believe it give me your attention for the next 496 words and you will see.
Words to create the future in the present : this is our challenge. In other words to create one of the possible future and to do it NOW !
Step 1 : we need words.
This to describe an idea. And this idea MUST break the paradigms !
If you not find it you must invent them.
Take ,for example, Prosumerzen. We invented it and this word synthesizes a concept.
PROducer + conSUMER + citiZEN = PROSUMERZEN
This explains an ethic approach where happiness is at the center ,(I), and we achieve it in our normal life doing normal things.
When we produce ,( PROducer),something…well it is only to respect the environment where we want to live as citiZEN and to respect the community being honest in the same way we want when we are conSUMER and we buy
When we consume , ( conSUMER),we have to be responsible PROducer and conSUMER or we will kill this wonderful but fragile world.
When we are citiZEN we must be responsible for our and for the next generation and that means an harmonic balance between our SPIRITual and matERIAL ,( SPIRITERIAL ,again a new word… www.spiriterial.com ),life. A sustainable balance that force us to be responsible PROducer and conSUMER.
Or look at the energy of the Jasmine Revolution in North Africa and in the Middle East…of the 15-M Movimimento in Spain and of the Referendum in Italy…all started with some words and then…
A word ? Why not green generation…for example…
Step 2 : build ideas and then visions
One that you have a word you have to use it like a brick to build ideas and visions.
Anything is useful.
Short or long stories, storyboards, graphic art, animations, models, surveys, interviews, videos …anything we can catch if we smelt the “scent of the streets™” !!!
In a world where you can broadcast a decent video with a 70€ camcoder …all and more is possible, is it ? YES IT IS !!!
Step 3 : share it in a network
Share …share and again share.
And each person that will start to use this word will be a brick to build this pacific and harmonic evolution.
The more people use this word the more and faster will be part of our life and then of our desires.
This means of our future and it will be a future that we start to chose now.
The network will metabolize the ideas and visions and ,more important, will start to evolve creating its ones.
Step 4 : the vision reaches the world
At that point the vision reaches the world .
W. Shakespeare wrote “ you know the world but the world does not know you”.
Now it is time that the world know you and that means the ,(NEW),words you believe.
This is the most delicate moment because the word starts to be self-perpetuating and to be “less revolutionary” and more part of the “ daily life” ,of if you prefer to be part of us.
Step 5:… listen the trend
See the word and the visions to growth… search them in the net because you belong to the net.
The world needs hope and the future is now.
Plase find your word and start to inspire us !
