Preface This book is one in a series of presentations for the use of Integral theory or an Integral metaframework in understanding cities and urban design. Although each can stand alone, taken together they give a more rounded appreciation of how this broader framework can help in the analysis and design of thriveable urban environments. Key to an Integral approach to urban design is the notion that although other aspects of urban life are important, people, as individuals and communities, are the primary ‘purpose’ for making cities thriveable. All other aspects (technology, transport & infrastructure, health, education, sustainability, economic development, etc.) although playing a major part, are secondary. This work shows the slides from a dynamic deck that accompany a presentation on Thriveable Smart Sustainable Cities. The history of the co-evolution of cities, worldviews and technology is presented in an integral framework.

This volume is part of an ongoing series of guides for integrally informed practitioners.

Why Stratified Leadership, Integral Methodological Pluralism and Integral Holarchy Subjects do not perceive worlds but enact them. Different states of subjects bring forth different worlds. For AQAL, this means that a subject might be at a particular wave of consciousness, in a particular stream of consciousness, in a particular state of consciousness, in one quadrant or another. That means that the phenomena brought forth by various types of human inquiry will be different depending on the quadrants, levels, lines, states, and types of the subjects bringing forth the phenomena. A subject at one wave of consciousness will not enact and bring forth the same worldspace as a subject at another wave; and similarly with quadrants, streams, states, and types (as we will see in more detail).

Tetra-meshing The act whereby a ‘holon’ meshes or fits with the selection pressures of all four quadrants. In order to tetra-mesh, each holon must to some degree be able to register its own exterior accurately enough (truth), its own interior accurately enough (truthfulness), understand its cultural milieu (mutual understanding)’ and fit within its social system (functional fit) – meaning that all four selection pressures must be dealt with adequately in order for a holon to evolve.

Zones Importantly, there is a more complex way about the nature of the quadrants, a full explanation of which is beyond the scope of this work. Quickly, the basic perspectives represented by the quadrants can scaffold a principled classification of inquiry types, known as Integral Methodological Pluralism (IMP). Through a more detailed analysis of the perspectives that yielded the four quadrants, we can derive a system of eight primordial perspectives, each with a related methodological approach and domain of phenomena. The result is a taxonomy of methodologies couched in terms of irreducible perspectival differentiations. We now have a map of the insides and outsides of the interiors and exteriors of individuals and collectives. Needless to say, this is a mouthful. The fundamental insight here is that there are a limited number of families of methodologies, and these can be arranged and differentiated in a principled fashion; that is, in terms of an analytically deduced system of basic perspectives. Each unique and irreducible perspective discloses a horizon of phenomena, known as a zone. Each zone is, in effect, the condition for the possibility of a certain family of methodologies. Briefly, the eight zones and their related methodological approaches: Zone #1: In the upper-left quadrant: the inside of the interior of individuals: Phenomenology Zone #2: In the upper-left quadrant: the outside of the inside of individuals: Structuralism Zone #3: Lower-left quadrant: the inside of the interior of collectives: Hermeneutics Zone #4: Lower-left quadrant: the outside of the inside of collectives: Ethnomethodology Zone #5: Upper-right quadrant: the inside of the outside of individuals: Autopoiesis, e.g. cognitive science. Zone #6: Upper-right quadrant: the outside of the exterior of individuals: Empiricism, e.g. neurophysiology. Zone #7: Lower-right quadrant: the inside of the exterior of collectives: Social Autopoiesis Zone #8: Lower-right quadrant: the outside of the exterior of individuals: Systems Theory Š integralMENTORS

A smart city is an urban development vision to integrate multiple information and communication technology(ICT) solutions in a secure fashion to manage a city’s assets – the city’s assets include, but not limited to, local departments information systems, schools, libraries, transportation systems, hospitals, power plants, water supply networks, waste management, law enforcement, and other community services. The goal of building a smart city is to improve quality of life by using technology to improve the efficiency of services and meet residents’ needs. ICT allows city officials to interact directly with the community and the city infrastructure and to monitor what is happening in the city, how the city is evolving, and how to enable a better quality of life. Through the use of sensors integrated with real-time monitoring systems, data are collected from citizens and devices - then processed and analyzed. The information and knowledge gathered are keys to tackling inefficiency © integralMENTORS

Sustainable/ Resilient cities Smart Cities Cradle to Cradle

SDi-Integral Cities seek to generate solutions that meet second-order change. These changes address a greater order of magnitude of problems than has ever been encountered before. This means that city leaders open up new mindsets, redefine city paradigms, and emerge new potentials for living systems not yet dreamed or tried. (Think cities as Gaia’s Reflective Organs, city as human hive, Planet of Cities as collective intelligence network.) Integral City leaders use both Smart and Resilient solutions – in their appropriate contexts. In fact Generative Change approaches enable Integral City thinking to emerge – because they include and build on both Smart and Resilient Solutions – and step into a zone where they can act effectively to align first order technical problems with Smart City solutions and mid-order adaptive problems with Resilient City Solutions But Integral City leaders go beyond merely aligning technical and adaptive solutions and seek to discover for their cities how to align the very source of City Wellbeing, with City Purpose, Collective Vision and Strategies for thriving.

Understanding Action Logic

Torbert’s Action Logics – a leadership perspective

ConventionalAction Action Logics (Styles 1-4) Torbert’s Logics – Leadership perspective

People adopting these styles tend to appreciate similarity and stability. Conventional Action Logics (Styles 1-4) People adopting these styles tend to appreciate similarity & stability 1. Opportunist Treats the physical outside world of experience as the primary reality and concentrates on gaining control of things there. This action logic views unilateral power as the only effectual type of power and works with a very short time horizon of discretion from hours to days, grasping opportunities and fire-fighting emergencies. Views timely action as occurring when “I win”. Managerial Style • Short time horizon • Focus on concrete things • Often good in emergencies • Deceptive • Manipulative • Views rules as loss of freedom • Views luck as central

• Rejects critical feedback • Externalises blame • Distrustful • Stereotypes • Fragile self-control • Hostile humour

• Flouts unilateral power, sexuality • Treats “what I can get away with” as legitimate • Punishment is “eye for an eye” • Positive ethic is even trade • Timely action is seen as “I win”

Managerial Style • Committed to routines • Observes protocol • Avoids inner and outer conflict • Conforms • Works to group standard

• Seeks membership, status • Often speaks in favourite phrases, cliches, prefabricated jokes • Face-saving is essential • Loyalty to immediate group

• Feels shame if violates norm • Sin is hurting others • Punishment is disapproval • Positive ethic is being nice, cooperative • Timely action is “I’m on time”

© integralMENTORS

2. The Diplomat Treats his or her own sensed performance territory of experience as what really matters and concentrates on gaining self-control in order to act effectively. To do so, he or she imitates organisational routines and the behaviour patterns of high-status group members. This action logic experiences referent power (reciprocal referent power is generated by consent of the “governed” – recognises that if you tell colleagues what to do they may resist, if you ask them, they will use their power to help you provided you reciprocate) and the current norms that such power generates most strongly. Views timely action in terms of when “I am on time for work, for meetings” and in terms of completing routine tasks.


• Conforms • Works to group standard

• Face-saving is essential • Loyalty to immediate group

• Positive ethic is being nice, cooperative • Timely action is “I’m on time”

Understanding Action Logic

3. The Expert Treats the strategic territory of experience as the primary reality and concentrates on mastering his or her cognitive grasp of one or more particular disciplines (e.g. accounting, engineering, marketing, etc.). This action logic treats logistical power (the power to reason within a given structure to create a new way of accomplishing a desired result) as the most meaningful. This action logic most happily works in a six-month to one-year time horizon to accomplish particular projects. For the expert, timely action occurs when “I” accomplish tasks as efficiently as possible. Managerial Style • Interested in problem-solving • Seeks causes • Critical of self/others based on own craft logic • Wants to stand out, be unique • Perfectionist

• Chooses efficiency over effectiveness • Dogmatic • Accepts feedback only from objective, acknowledged craft masters • Values decisions based on technical merit

• Humour takes the form of practical jokes • Sees contingencies, exceptions • Positive ethic is a sense of obligation to internally consistent moral order • Timely action is fast, efficient

4. The Achiever IntegralMENTORS Guides – [basic] Works within a one to three-year time horizon, juggling the shorter time horizons creatively, treating the interplay among planning, performing and assessing the outcomes as what is really real. The achiever concentrates on

making incremental, single-loop changes in behaviour to eventually reach the planned results. Timely action occurs when “I” successfully juggle the need for occasional immediate wins, observance of agreed-on deadlines, efficient work, and effective outcomes as judged by the market or 67 other constituency. Managerial Style • Long-term goals • Future is vivid, inspiring • Welcomes behavioural feedback • Timely action is juggling time demands to attain effective results • Feels like initiator, not pawn

Post-Conventional Action Logics

• Seeks generalisable reasons for action • Seeks mutuality, not hierarchy, in relationships • Appreciates complexity • Feels guilt if does not meet own standards

• Blind to own shadow, to the subjectivity behind objectivity • Positive ethic is practical day-today improvements based on selfchosen (but not self-created) ethical system

Post-Conventional Action Logics

5. The Individualist This is viewed as a transitional action logic between the conventional and post-conventional. The dawning awareness of post-conventional understanding may be a confusing time. The Individualist’s dark side includes troubled feelings of something unravelling or needing resolving, along with a sense of paralysis about how to move, because, at this stage we have not yet developed new principles to those of earlier stages. It is also likely to be a time of renewed freshness of each fully tasted new experience, of dramatic new insight into the uniqueness of ourself and others, of forging relationships that reach new levels of intimacy, and of perusing new interests in the world. Excitement alternates with doubt in unfamiliar ways. The individualist is engaged in a journey that reevaluates all prior life experience and action logics.

The Individualist is a bridge between two worlds. One is the pre-constituted, relatively stable and hierarchical understandings we grow into as children, as we learn how to function as members of a pre-constituted culture. The other is the emergent, relatively fluid and mutual understandings that highlight the power of responsible adults to lead their children, their subordinates and their peers in transforming change. From the point of view of conventional stage employees, Individualist managers tend to provide less certainty and firm leadership. This is in part because the individualist is aware of the layers upon layers of assumptions and interpretations at work in any situation. Managerial Style • Takes a relativistic perspective • Focuses more on both present and historical context • Often aware of conflicting emotions • Experiences time itself as a fluid, changeable medium with piercing, unique moments • Interested in own and others’ unique self-expression • Seeks independent, creative work

• Attracted by difference and change more than by similarity and stability • Less inclined to judge or evaluate • Influences by listening and finding patterns more than by advocacy • May become something of a maverick • Starts to notice own shadow (and own negative impact) • Possible decision paralysis

Understanding Action Logic

6. The Strategist A principle feature of the Strategist action logic is self-awareness in action. It not only intuitively recognises other action logics and itself as action logics, it also intuitively recognises all action as either facilitating or inhibiting on going transformational change of personal, familial, corporate, or national action logics. If we are aware of ourselves in action in the present and among others who may be framing the situation based on entirely different action logics, participating in both incremental and transformational change, then the central question becomes: What action is timely now to whom?

Persons operating from the Strategist action logic truly lead, whatever their organisation rank or role. They focus their own and colleagues’ attention on whether mission, strategy, operations, and outcome are in conflict with one another and might be aligned more coherently. The Strategist will develop ways to detect disparities between A Broader mission andFramework strategy, strategy and operations, and operations and outcome so that ineffective and unethical processes can be corrected. The Strategist’s sensitivity to systemic disparities includes a keen awareness of inequities in race, ethnicity, class, gender, and development among colleagues and subordinates. This perspective is consonant with a global rather 68 than ethnocentric vision and demands that the Strategist make every effort to redress social inequities in ways that promote personal and institutional development, rather than generating Diplomat-like dependence on government aid. Characteristics of the Strategist Action Logic

• The Strategist recognises the importance of principle, contract, theory, and judgment (not just rules), customs, and expectations – for making and maintaining good decisions • High value on timely action inquiry, mutuality, and autonomy • Attentive to unique market niches, particular historical moments

• Interweaves short-term goal-orientedness with longerterm developmental process-orientedness • Aware of paradox that what one sees depends on one’s action logic • Creative at conflict resolution • Enjoys playing a variety of roles • Witty, existential humour • Aware of and tempted by the dark side of power

Understanding Action Logic The Alchemist The final leadership action logic for which we have data and experience is the Alchemist. Our studies of the few leaders we have identified as Alchemists suggest that what sets them apart from Strategists is their ability to renew or even reinvent themselves and their organizations in historically significant ways. Whereas the Strategist will move from one engagement to another, the Alchemist has an extraordinary capacity to deal simultaneously with many situations at multiple levels. The Alchemist can talk with both kings and commoners. He can deal with immediate priorities yet never lose sight of long-term goals. What sets Alchemists apart from Strategists is their ability to renew or even reinvent themselves and their organizations in historically significant ways. Alchemists constitute 1% of our sample, which indicates how rare it is to find them in business or anywhere else. Through an extensive search process, we found six Alchemists who were willing to participate in an up-close study of their daily actions. Though this is obviously a very small number that cannot statistically justify generalization, it’s worth noting that all six Alchemists shared certain characteristics. On a daily basis, all were engaged in multiple organizations and found time to deal with issues raised by each. However, they were not in a constant rush—nor did they devote hours on end to a single activity. Alchemists are typically charismatic and extremely aware individuals who live by high moral standards. They focus intensely on the truth. Perhaps most important, they’re able to catch unique moments in the history of their organizations, creating symbols and metaphors that speak to people’s hearts and minds. Characteristics of managers with Alchemist Action Logic We cannot describe Alchemists as "typically" doing anything. The sample is small and by definition Alchemists are highly post conventional. However some of the following might be observed about leaders at this stage. •

serve the development and growth, and even purification of themselves and other people. They will thus often take the role of mentor or "guru" as well as leader. seek transformation of organizations not according to conventional goals or principles but according to a higher order of behavior and being. As leaders they will be seen as visionaries - either inspired or deluded. may appear to most people as other-worldly, speaking a different language or seeing differentrealities. Thus, others may see them as inscrutable enigmas. They may be seen as overly abstract, spiritual, apparently unrealistic or even "crazy"!

• • • • • •

either attract others or intimidate and alienate them given their unselfconsciousness, personal inner strength, vision and charisma. are aware of, bemused and saddened by the inevitability of paradox in human affairs, yet address contradictions and complexity wholeheartedly. can have a transforming ability to draw together opposites and initiate new directions from creative tension. they can often turn around a hopeless situation by the strength of their insight and personal courage (which may indeed seem magical!) they will have multiple and diverse responsibilities which will spread well beyond the confines of one organization. © integralMENTORS

DYNAMIC CONCEPTUAL SCAFFOLDING – PT 1 [Working Series 020] Advanced

(DCS) [working with Structure-Stages]

There will be more issues in transcending and including from any given Stage if there is no reasonable view or ‘level’ of competence at that lower Stage. Anyone who transverses a Stage too superficially will have more problems at higher Stages – usually shadow effects or dissociation. Without a significant degree of translation at each developmental Stage [the process is similar to forced growth in plant life] – the outcome of the transformation will be weak and weedy in all quadrants. Grounding in each Stage must be secure before pushing through to transcend and include to the next Stage. A close study will usually show that where ‘Mean Memes’ appear it is amongst those who have almost ‘skipped’ through a lower developmental Stage. DCS works by a) getting the translation at each Stage to a sufficient level to allow the next phase of transformation to take place from a strong base, and b) developing specific programs for individuals or small coherent groups that allow for both this translation and then the necessary transformation if appropriate. a) above is easier than b) and they both have to take place as AQAL ‘interventions’ – for no matter how designed, these will always be interventions until the process has taken sufficient hold for those involved to self-organise their own process. There needs to be sufficient of a healthy translation at each Stage before a move is made to transformation – to be certain to include those ‘good’ parts of the existing Stage and not just some half-baked idea of the negative aspects that are to be transcended. In any DCS design there is always an attempt to cover all quadrants.

Dynamic Conceptual Scaffolding

There needs to be sufficient of a healthy translation at each Stage before a move is made to transformation – to be certain to include those ‘good’ parts of the existing Stage and not just some half-baked idea of the negative aspects that are to be transcended. In any DCS design there is always an attempt to cover all quadrants. It is of little use spending most time working in the ULQ if there is not support in the other three quadrants. If this tetra-meshing does not happen in a serious way we end up with a narcissistic self-absorbed individual, no matter what Stage they are at [1st or 2nd tier] – with a mistaken view that the path and methods they have used to overcome their own issues, including shadow, are the best or the same for everybody.

DCS is an attempt to determine what support is needed at what level for individuals or groups to let them handle the new level of complexity at a higher Stage of consciousness. A system that provides support to individual or group development – whether translational or transformational. The bits we can do at anytime are supported by this Scaffolding so that the usually difficult process of change/learning (cf Max Singer) is held and supported during the process. Category level 3 complexity – represented by throwing a ball back and forth (boss and worker – Robert Kegan) is supported when development programs require a Category level 4 complexity – represented by the juggling of many balls.

views at each level and the changes that will need to be made if

This table describes an individual’s COG or their ‘Walk’ – their ‘Talk’ [cognitive –line] may be from a higher stage and must not be confused with their actual COG. What is key for any mentor is to determine the ‘Walk’ of both the people theyFramework are working with and of themselves. [Particular in the mentors case this needs a deep understanding of A Broader their development as this type of work is based on the notion of ‘self-as-instrument] Conceptual Scaffolding will catch some and allow the individual to concentrate on a few only at each point in time – this process will still be/feel uncomfortable as Dynamic Conceptual Scaffolding will always ensure that limits are being pushed. Translation is what is usually happening when we look at most management development, mentoring, coaching programmes. It is getting better results by doing things differently. But it’s the same old bottom lines. Transformation is a completely different ball game.

The developmental matrix and the process of support (also Kegan level CL5 relationship) including the Dynamic Conceptual Scaffolding have one overall aim - one prime directive, that is: the health of the ‘whole system’ the overall conceptual framework whether represented by Wilber 5 or any other such system.

Dynamic Conceptual Scaffolding

The Processes of Dynamic Conceptual Scaffolding Part 1 – TRANSLATION [movement of surface structure]

The first step is probably to determine what support, if any, is needed to help an individual translate at their present Stage, to relatively healthy version of that same Stage. If their present Stage is not sufficiently ‘healthy’ a program is developed to assist – this program could be interventions in any or all of the quadrants. It could be advice to seek help from other professionals - for example: a psychotherapist for ULQ, [there would be a different type of practitioner for each Stage of development] a dietician for URQ, Cultural groups {again Stage specific] for LLQ and System advisors for LRQ [the latter two to help individuals adjust to different types of Orange groups [worldviews] and system thinking etc.. These interventions are about making individuals [or small groups] more healthy at the Stage they already inhabit. And there are many different interventions that can be suggested – these will always depend on the current condition and context of those involved. This is usually not a quick-fix, but a long term commitment to ‘improvement’. Many interventions may never go beyond this translatitive process - where more and more depth is included but no transformation is looked for – this is unusual as in the longrun many people do seek more, even if they plateau at present Stage for long periods. If there is no perceived need to change – ‘why make the effort’ is the thought often expressed.

[Note for facilitator or mentor: As shown in the graphics – no change can realistically be expected if the mentor is not ‘walking the talk’ or ‘leading by example’. The person or group will give up or change mentors if they feel there is a disconnect between what the mentor says and how he/she behaves.] DO NOT rush this first step. It is probably the most important help one can give in many international development situations. If rushed many issues that are important to connect with and master at this Stage my be badly transferred to the next structure-Stage. The process of ‘transcend and include’ is damaged or poorly integrated – this then often means that past Stages are demonised {the ‘mean meme’ syndrome] and also means that future Stages are more problematic. [dissociation and shadows]. Therefore, in the translation component of DCS the individual is considered from each quadrant and the help given will be dependent on the ‘relative health of each’ and an intervention planned over time to support actions as appropriate in each or all quadrants.

Yet each is also a definition of a stage of development. It follows that the two are essentially identical, and that evolution, as has been said, is actually “self-realisation” through self-transcendence. “ The graphics illustrate how once translation is complete to a sufficient level [shown in the graphics by the 4Q in the ULQ] support to an individual’s transformational process is provided from each quadrant but only from the processes designed from one Stage above. This support, as far as is possible, covers all quadrants and is NOT limited to the ULQ of personal inner change – working in ULQ only this is never sufficient to produce real change that actually shifts the COG – it is through tetra-meshed interventions that the ‘talk’ in time becomes the ‘walk’ and we get real movement in the deep structure. © integralMENTORS There are so many instances where the change has only occurred in the cognitive line of development and the COG

Healthy manifestation Beyond materialism and dogma. Focuses on warm interpersonal relations. Promotes affiliation and personal growth. Supports consensus and community. Softens edges in conflict. Genuine concern for others.

Unhealthy manifestation Naïve egalitarianism within moral crusades. Compassion becomes patronising contempt. Romanticises the underprivileged. Develops a narrow view of human diversity. Demands piety, harmony and understanding above all else.

A Broader Framework

Stages in Communication - Teal STAGES IN COMMUNICATION

Teal - global mind, early vision-logic, higher mind Key Words: Flexibility, spontaneity, and functionality have the highest priority. Teal express self with concern for, and not at the expense of, other. Teal ‘world’ is a chaotic organism where change is the norm and uncertainty an acceptable state of being. Teal has recognition of overlapping dynamic systems and natural hierarchies in any context. Teal’s time horizon: Life time (own history)

What's Teal values or finds Important Qualities and responsibilities of being. Basic theme: Live fully and responsibly as what you are and learn to become.

Self found in Leads in reframing, reinterpreting situation so that decisions support overall principle, strategy, integrity, and foresight.

Underlying Values

- The prevailing world order is the result of the existence of different levels of reality and the inevitable patterns of movement up and down the dynamic developmental stages. - Good governance facilitates the emergence of entities through the levels of increasing complexity (nested hierarchy).

- Life is a kaleidoscope of natural hierarchies [holarchies], systems, and forms. - Flexibility, spontaneity, and functionality have the highest priority. - Differences and pluralities can be integrated into interdependent, natural flows. - Egalitarianism is complemented with natural degrees of excellence where appropriate. - Knowledge and competency should supersede rank, power, status, or group.

developmental stages. - Good governance facilitates the emergence of entities through the levels of increasing complexity (nested hierarchy).

Stages in Communication - Teal

What’s important The magnificence of existence (over material possessions); flexibility, spontaneity, and functionality; knowledge and competency (over rank, power, status); the integration of differences into interdependent, natural flows; complementing egalitarianism with natural degrees of ranking and excellence; recognition of overlapping dynamic systems and natural hierarchies in any context. Self-Identity Comprehends multiple interconnected systems of relationships and processes; able to deal with conflicting needs and duties in constantly shifting contexts; recognizes the need for autonomy while parts of a system are interdependent; recognizes higher principles, social construction of reality, complexity and interrelationships; problem finding not just creative problem solving; aware of paradox and contradiction in system and self; sensitive to unique market niches, historical moment, larger social movements; creates ‘positive-sum’ games; aware of own power (and perhaps tempted by it); seeks feedback from others and environment as vital for growth and making sense of world. Unhealthy manifestation

Healthy manifestation Big-picture view of life systems. Values what is natural – less can mean more. Focuses on competency, responsibility, and freedom of choice. Rejects status, conformity, authoritarian structures. Information and knowledge-based decision making. Capable of fearless, creative problem solving.

Often drops out, stays on side-lines or “does own thing” regardless. Shows little passion for others. Absorbed in self-interest. Pursues a variety of interests based on selfmotivation. Often “lets things be” to excess.

Urban Manifestations:

Magenta

Sacred and special ground defined by the events and happenings of the past important to the group. Marked by symbols, defined by traditions, limited by visual and walking distances, natural physical features are revered as are the old country and home ways and seasonal activities

Deeply spiritual places with strong historical, custom and traditional links to the past and rites of passage as individuals, families, tribes, communities, nationalities – hills, rivers, sites and areas of special events, cemeteries – visited, respected, tended with high regard, mysticism, and spirituality.

Red

Areas of conquest over which the victor reigns, controls and leaves a personal mark. Strongly defined and defended boundaries outside which danger and enemies exist and threaten the gained spoils

Defined and protected personal areas – private homes, factories, sports grounds, gang turf, individual and group property which is defined, used, defended and protected by powerful physical and visible means and signs – illegal land invasions, primary industries.

Amber

Land and space is precisely and carefully surveyed, documented, assigned and allocated, boundaries are marked permanently obeyed and protected for the stability and future of the group through treaties and compacts for all to enjoy. The use of land is determined and justified by a future purpose and goal.

Well established and carefully maintained areas and spaces for all aspects of living carefully identified, controlled and marked (land use zoning & cadastral maps) to ensure the uses are established for the benefit of the group – homes, schools, churches, police stations, social institutions, hi-tech, research, scientific, technological uses

Stages in Development

IntegralMENTORS Guides – [basic]

Centre of Gravity

Walk and Talk

Common Mode of Discourse [CMD]

The ‘Walk’ and the ‘Talk’

In all societies people will be operation from a number of development stages or levels – the majority at a particular community or society would define the common mode of discourse – that is the worldview, culture, language etc. that would be heard. But there would also certainly be a leading edge at a higher stage and a trailing tail at a lower stage of development.

COG and CMD the reason that people very often talk about their ideas from a higher stage than that from which they behave. ………

Centre of Gravity [COG]

Equally individuals has a centre of gravity of all their different lines or streams. Here again there would also certainly be a leading edge usually the cognitive line and a trailing tail often the moral line. While the ego/self, values lines development tend to define the COG

Manifestation:

All these Stages are the deep structure and have been studied by looking at each of individual subjective lines of development. The way that these deep structure Stages appear as surface structure in each culture or society can be very different. It is therefore important not to provide identical responses to all, but to tailor each activity to the actual manifestation of these Stages in each society.

The depth, complexity, and scope of what people notice can expand throughout life. Yet no matter how evolved we become, our knowledge and understanding is always partial and incomplete.

Development occurs through the interplay between person and environment, not just by one or the other. It is a potential and can be encouraged and facilitated by appropriate support and challenge.

all, but to tailor each activity to the actual manifestation of these Stages in each society.

Stages in Development

Development occurs through the interplay between person and environment, not just by one or the other. It is a potential and can be encouraged and facilitated by appropriate support and challenge. The depth, complexity, and scope of what people notice can expand throughout life. Yet no matter how evolved we become, our knowledge and understanding is always partial and incomplete. As development unfolds, autonomy, freedom, tolerance for difference and ambiguity, as well as flexibility, reflection and skill in interacting with the environment increase, while defenses decrease. Overall, worldviews evolve from simple to complex, from static to dynamic, and from egocentric to sociocentric to world-centric. Each later stage in the sequence is more differentiated, integrated, flexible and capable of functioning optimally in a world that is rapidly changing and becoming more complicated. People's stage of development influences what they notice or can become aware of, and therefore what they can describe, articulate, influence, and change. The main reason that learning is as slow as it is, is that learning means giving up ideas, habits, and values. Some of the old “learning” that has to be given up or “unlearned” was useful in the past, and is still useful to some of the people in the society. Some of the things that people have to unlearn are traditions that are dear to people, and that may be part of their personal character development. Some of what needs to be forgotten are ways of living that still have important values to people.

Holon Evolution – 20 Tenets 1. Reality as a whole is not composed of things or processes, but of holons

11. The micro is in relational exchange with the macro at all levels of its depth

2. Holons display four fundamental capacities: self-preservation; self-adaptation self-transcendence; self-dissolution 3. Holons emerge

12. Evolution is directional (13.) Increasing in complexity

4. Holons emerge holarchically 5. Each emergent holon transcends but includes its predecessors(s) 6. The lower sets the possibilities of the higher; the higher sets the probabilities of the lower. 7. The number of levels of which a ‘hierarchy’ comprises determines whether it is ‘shallow’ or ‘deep’; and the number of holons on any given level we shall call its span

(14.) Increasing differentiation/integration (15.) Increasing organisation/structuration (16.) Increasing relative autonomy (17.) Increasing telos 18. The greater the depth of a holon, the greater its degree of consciousness 19. Every holon issues an IOU to the Kosmos 20. All IOUs are redeemed in emptiness

8. Each successive level of evolution produces greater depth and less span 9. Destroy any type of holon, and you will destroy all of the holons above it and none of the holons below it 10. Holarchies co-evolve

Myth of the Given Perhaps the most difficult thing for green to understand is that its values — peace, harmony, healing, transformation, sharing, feeling, embodiment — are values shared only by green. They are not values shared by magenta, red, amber, orange, teal, turquoise, indigo, or violet. If I want to transform the world, implicit in that desire is the assumption, “You are screwed up, but I know what you need.” This imposition of my values on you is a subtle violence of values. The point is that different worldspaces contain different phenomena. It is not a matter of saying which worldspace is the “real” worldspace, because any age will always feel that its view is the real view. But there is no “real” or “pregiven” world, only these various worldspaces that creatively evolve and unfold in novel ways, then settle into Kosmic habits that then must be negotiated by all subsequent humans as stages in their own unfolding and levels in their own compound individuality.

© integralMENTORS


Kosmic Address There is not a pre-given material world that is apprehended equally by beings. What is apprehended depends on a being’s Kosmic address, - a “worldview location” that specifies what arises in the experience of a sentient being based on two fundamental aspects within the AQAL matrix: altitude and perspective. - Altitude refers to the level of developmental complexity of the sentient being while - Perspective refers to the particular perspective within the quadrants or zones it is taking. Intrinsic features of Kosmos are themselves not pre-given but are in part, interpretive and constructed. The “location” of a “real object” in the AQAL matrix, including its altitude (i.e., degree of development) and its perspective (i.e., the quadrant in which it resides). Kosmic address = altitude + perspective Kosmic address = (altitude + perspective)S x (altitude + perspective)O Kosmic address = (altitude + quadrant) x (altitude + quadrivium)

© integralMENTORS


Quadrants and Quadrivia I possess 4 quadrants; the painting can be looked at through the 4 quadrants (which then constitute a quadrivia). Or in general: the perceiving subject has quadrants, which must be specified as part of its Kosmic address; and the perceived object, referent, or phenomenon has a quadrivium, which must be specified as part of its Kosmic address. Another way to say it—more loosely—is that because an object is being looked at through or from a particular quadrant, then the subject is looking at the object through a quadrant, and the object itself exists “in” a quadrant. In both cases, the quadrant of the perceiver and the quadrant (quadrivium) of the perceived must be specified for the Kosmic address of the referent to be known
