Thoughtware Upgrade For Yourself
The Stone Age did not end because people ran out of stones...
The Stone Age ended by individuals upgrading their Thoughtware.
When others saw the benefits of Upgraded Thoughtware, it was easier for them to Upgrade also.
What is fearsome is to be first.
This is your job.
It is your job to Upgrade your Thoughtware first because you are an Edgeworker.
This is not fair.
But it does not need to be fair, because it is ecstatic.
By Upgrading your Thoughtware first you are fulfilling your destiny as an Edgeworker.
After you Upgrade your own Thoughtware, you have Upgraded Thoughtware, and the Universe works differently for you. But then you are alone, out there in the new territories.
It could be that your next job is to help other people Upgrade their Thoughtware.
This involves learning new skills, for example:
How to be Centered, Grounded, and Bubbled.
How to Hold Space.
How to Navigate Space.
How to have your Gremlin at your side as an ally.
How to Decontaminate your Adult Ego State.
How to Land Distinctions In A Space.
How to Pull The Rug Out.
How to navigate the Liquid State.
Albert Einstein famously said, "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." What he neglected to explain is how to change your thinking.
Your Thoughtware is what you use to think with. At school they teach you what to think about, ignoring what you use to think with. The school curriculum assumes (erroneously...) that each child already learned to think the same way from their parents.
You built your original Thoughtware out of 'memes'. Similar in function to genes, memes are the smallest instruction for the design of your intellectual body... your mind. Memes can be used to build any kind of Thoughtware. Yes. And. The Thoughtware you use determines how the world works for you. The design of your Thoughtware has consequences.
As a child you assemble your thoughtware out of memes supplied by your environment because this empowers you to survive in those conditions. Later on, after you survived to eighteen years old, your meme-set - what Possibility Management refers to as your Box - is ready to be escaped, like a chick at the proper time escapes its shell.
But if you step outside of your Box, who are you?
Upgraded Thoughtware is available, but your Thoughtware will not be upgraded at school - even at the graduate levels - because 'school' is a self-defending modern culture gameworld. Modern culture avoids indicating the value of creating new Thoughtware by shifting Context. Such an explanation can only be given at the edge of the culture, where you first get a view of the entire culture from a neutral perspective.
Your birth culture is just a Gameworld, one of many Gameworlds operating simultaneously in the global human ethnosphere on Earth. Perhaps you still remember the moment you got to the edge of modern culture’s worldview. (You would probably not be reading this unless you already found that edge…)
Your first thought at the edge might be, “Oh! This has an edge?!#?” Suddenly the Gameworld of modern culture becomes visible as a whole. The capitalistic patriarchal empire spreads out behind you with so many people claiming it is ‘true’, believing that it is the ‘best thing human beings ever invented’. Whatever they believe, there is now evidence to suggest this is not the case. As Ishmael author Daniel Quinn observes, “Something better than civilization is waiting for us.”
Your second thought at the edge might be, “Ah! Something completely different from this is possible right now!”
Then a third thought comes, “Crivens! I feel scared!”
Then, if you use modern culture’s Standard Human Intelligence Thoughtware (S.H.I.T.) about fear, you think fear is one of those ‘negative feelings’, a ‘bad feeling’, something to be avoided at all costs, or people might lock you away in a mental hospital and give you drugs.
This fear makes your whole system contract, bouncing reflexively back into the marshmallow zone at the center of your Box.
Every Edgeworker knows that they are being offered thoughtware-upgrade Doorways ten times a day. Unconscious fears would automatically bounce you back into the thought-prisons of your Box each time, unless you make your fears Conscious and say, “Welcome fear! What do you have for me?” and write into your Beep! Book what your Conscious Fear tell you. The intelligence and energy of your Fear serves you as rocket fuel for inventing and delivering your part of the puzzle of Archearchy.
Upgrading to a New Thoughtmap of Feelings changes everything, because it provides the clarity for reconnecting to exactly the inner and outer resources needed for becoming adult.
On the New Thoughtmap of Feelings, fear is no longer ‘negative’ or ‘bad’. Instead fear is powerful neutral energy and incredibly precise information about what to take care of, what to watch out for, how to stay alert and attentive, how to take care of yourself around people who are untrustworthy so that you can actually trust yourself to take care of yourself around people like them, how to pay attention and navigate the void of the unknown and still function to create what is wanted and needed by your village now while standing on nothing because the archearchal territory you are in was never invented before.
Does this sound useful? You get there through authentic adulthood initiatory thoughtware upgrades.
Something completely different from this is possible right now.
If you have upgraded your own Thoughtware with even a few Distinctions from the ArchearchalContext of Radical Responsibility, then you will be able to create valuable results that people playing in the modern culture Gameworlds can hardly imagine.
If you can make a Distinction that someone else cannot, then they are your Client for a Thoughtware Upgrade Process.
PHASE ONE: Your current condition, your current Thoughtware, your current set of consciously or unconsciously used Distinctions, the current shape of your Being, the current Results you can create, the current way the Universe interacts with you.
Providing the service of Upgrading Thoughtware for other individuals requires that you have 'one foot' planted at the edges of modern culture, and 'the other foot' planted into next culture, making you a Bridge to Next Culture. If that is what you are, then it may be useful to know it.
WHAT DO YOU CALL YOURSELF?
What you call yourself in Archearchy depends on the service you provide to people or organizations. Every current profession in modern culture can be thrown away because it is contexted in distinctions and thoughtware that is not only not sustainable, it is suicidal.
This simply means that the name of your Archearchal profession does not already exist on any capitalist Patriarchal empire tax forms. You will need to create the name of your calling.
The problem with creating a next-culture calling is that coming up with an accurate name requires your imagination, but cannot be a fantasy world. The reason is because if you introduce yourself as a 'Transformational Dragon Wizardress', the next demand from the Universe will be, "Prove it."
You will need to be able to deliver what you claim, in reality.
...which means you will need to have already faced and transformed these things within yourself, and be well practiced with remaining Unhookable, Centered, and Present in First Position to be able to deliver your Healing and Transformation Services as a holistic Adventure.
HOW DOES THOUGHTWARE UPGRADE PROCEED IN TRAININGS?
Thoughtware upgrade for groups of unrelated individuals in Training Spaces proceeds according to a complex set of distinctions, tools, thoughtmaps, and processes ongoingly developed since 1975. In short we call this body of healing, initiation and transformational technologies Possibility Management. Everything we have discovered or invented is open code thoughtware. It can never be copyrighted. All of it is protected by a Creative Commons Attribute and Share Alike International 4.0 License. Please attribute http://possibilitymanagement.org. Thank you.
Possibility Management Trainers and Trainer-Trainers around the world dedicate themselves to upgrading human thoughtware to empower the emergence of next culture - archearchy - the culture that naturally emerges after matriarchy and patriarchy have run their course. We also train you how to do this as fast as you can learn it.
By now it is clear to us that human beings are designed to represent an Archetypal Lineage as a way of serving their community and their tribe. Most of how it goes to upgrade thoughtware for individuals is doing the healing, initiation, and transformation processes that prepare them to jack-in to their particular archetypal lineage. After that, whatever further thoughtware upgrade is needed by the individual happens in the course of delivering their services.
But there is a serious shift that needs to occur before the archetypal lineage jacking-in process can take place.
One of the most powerful ways to describe this profound shift has to do with the way a Possibilitator (Thoughtware Upgrader) delivers the distinctions in a thoughtmap drawn on a flipchart board.
Before the context shift, the Possibilitator stands in front of the Client (or the group) and imagines themselves imparting new knowledge to the Client following the only role model they have for 'imparting knowledge to another': the 'school 'teacher'. They clear their throat and say, "I have some valuable knowledge which I think I understand in my mind that I think you should know, so I will explain these ideas to you. Then after I tell you, you will understand these new ideas in your mind." This 'teacher' draws the Thoughtmap on flip-chart paper according to their own memory of how it looks (or copies a drawing by looking at notes or cards), and hopes that at the end, the 'student' understands.
After the context shift, the Possibilitator approaches Thoughtware Upgrade entirely differently. They walk into the Training Space focusing on their own Center, Grounding Cord, and Bubble, greets the Presiding Deity Of The Space, then Declares the 8 points of their Energetic Work Space to include the Client (or the whole Team) online-or-offline. The Possibilitator calls their Bright Principles into that Space, checks with E.C.C.O. about any coincidences, and speaks as a Space through which their Bright Principles and Archetypal Lineage can do their work. The Possibilitator's speaking carries extra value from the Sword Of Clarity in their hand, and their Initiated Gremlin alert at their side. When it would be useful to deliver a Thoughtmap, the Possibilitator knows nothing. Instead the Possibilitator stays in experiential connection with each Co-Journeyer with one part of their Split Attention, and with another part of their Split Attention the Possibilitator moves their Point Of Origin to the birth-place of the Thoughtmap - the actual pristine Space out of which the Distinctions and energetic diagrams of this particular Thoughtmap originally emerged. That Space still exists. With one 'foot' standing in the Space of Clarity where the Thoughtmap was born, and their other 'foot' connecting to the Matrix of each Client in the Team, the Possibilitator uses Memetic Speaking to allow the Thoughtmap to build itself inside of the Client. The Possibilitator is not explaining the ideas of the Thoughtmap to the Client. Instead the Possibilitator weaves the Thoughtmap inside of the Client until the Client becomes the Thoughtmap. The Client does not have to try to understand or try to remember the Thoughtmap because they have become the Thoughtmap. They are now someone new. Their shape has changed to such a degree that the Universe has no option but to interact with them differently.
This evolved procedure for landing Thoughtmaps in the Client is but one of thousands of skills and tools needed to serve as the Possibilitator Specialty developed in Phase 2 of Possibilitator Training called Possibility Trainer.
If this conversation is making you drool, then perhaps this is your Specialty. In that case you may want to study the Trainer Path website.
HOW DOES THOUGHTWARE UPGRADE PROCEED FOR ORGANIZATIONS?
If you regard an organization as if it is an 'institution', a 'culture', a 'family', a 'religion', a 'government', a 'legal system', or a 'corporation', for example, then you do not have the freedom of movement to perform the needed transformational surgeries. Your Authority as a 'Thoughtware Upgrader' needs to originate from outside the institutional system, because institutions do not perform transformational self-surgeries.
Furthermore, 'institutions' do not permit their clients, their owners, their managers, or their workers to reinvent the institution. This quote from Saul Bellow's 1968 film Why Man Creates explains it all: "Have you ever thought that radical ideas threaten institutions, then become institutions, and in turn reject radical ideas which threaten institutions?"
