12 Questions /
Are you for real? (Am I? or she? or he? or they? or we?)
AndriusKulikauskas: I want to organize a culture for those of us who are poor in spirit, which is to say, who wish to take many small leaps of faith rather than one great big one. You might call us independent thinkers.
Over the years, I've engaged thousands of independent thinkers. 12 questions helped me get to know them.
Unanswered questions point to weaknesses in our credibility.
We can organize around people who do know themselves and do make that evident. Our answers to the 12 questions help us check where our credibility breaks down. They allow us to work together as best we can as self-directed people.
www.12questions.org is a place for us to post our answers to these questions as text but also to express ourselves with all the creative arts: texts, drawings, paintings, photos, music, drama, video, performance. All of the site is in the Public Domain. We will help each other create such works that express us and can be freely shared, too.
I am doing related a month long art shows in May in Vilnius, Lithuania and also in Vienna, Austria. I invite us all to portray and show our dreams-in-life and other answers there.
"Money brings people together, but you can't pay people to care." If we need help to express ourselves, then we ask others to help, but we don't pay them directly ourselves, because that would interfere with them caring about us, and then they might just do whatever we signal them to do. See: work-for-free.
The business opportunity that I see is when person A pays person B to reach out and help person C express themselves. We thereby help others verify and build their credibility. For example, a social entrepreneur might want us to reach out and include their partners, workers, suppliers, clients. A venture capitalist might want us to help clarify the values of the people they fund and help hold them accountable. Ultimately, this leads to a culture where we can invest in each other as people and are able to organize global teams for all manner of work. See: work-for-pay
www.12questions.org is a website for coordinating this activity, but it can happen anywhere. I invite you to lead these activities especially if you host an online venue where the activity is in the Public Domain except as noted otherwise. Typically we might discuss one question per week, twelve weeks in all, every year at such a venue. Does this make sense for your venue? How best might this work in practice?
The result will be a Second Life type of world but with the simplest technology and for "real world" people. And we'll interact in simple ways, but especially pointing to posts such as "kind words" at other online venues that support our credibility with each other.
The 12 Questions are a lightweight way to unfold a new culture. They will also help in collecting stories and patterns about real life, "What lessons can we share?"
