glyph 555: emergence of freeorder, forge, forge builder, weaver, weaver of freeorder, networks & network generators . quest serving balances among designed and spontaneous orders . ventures intended to preserve and enhance all terrain that suppots health, life, joy and shared joy . limits are fundamental to what's good for explorers, within us and among us . limits establish open space in which new conjectures and ventures can be tested . explorers: those who the best they have been given to make the fullest life possible, and to share the blessings of such life
We stand together at the edge of something great. I call it the emergence of freeorder, the collaborative making of a world magnificently fit for explorers, and the development among ourselves of a people magnificently fit to live in such a world.
Such emergent collaboration depends on limits, differences, factions, lack of agreement, competition for resources of vision, mind, spirit, and matter.
This is a collaboration beyond design, beyond possible agreement, founded on the deepest possible respect for the incomprehensible, inevitable, divergence of individual patterns of exploration.
There is a unity beyond all imaginable unities that only our respect for differences and limits can make possible.
Millions of individuals each differently probing the edge of chaos leave behind us a reef of unforeseen substance and beauty.
Our work will be preservation of the sea that makes such unplanned emergence possible.
