glyph 342: leif smith, writings ... a few words key to explorers foundation defined ... weaver (a philosopher, artist, and entrepreneur), open network (a home for explorers), freeorder (a balance among kinds of order), resonance (an expectation), magic (a kind of awareness, "flow" might be a better word)
Open Network names a freeorder comprised of and arising from
all aspects of the world
in which an explorer of sovereign spirit may rejoice.
It is very old.
No one invented it.
Freeorder is a balance among designed and spontaneous orders conducive to quest.
Quest is an aesthetics governed pattern of explorations
in course of which resonance grows.
Resonance is the expectation of magic.
Magic is emergent,
an awareness arising from a fusing through present action
of curiosity, intensity, sensitivity, integrity, and wonder.
Such capabilities of human beings are the reason why
Open Network came into being,
why it continues to exist,
and why it is inextinguishable.
