[Eco-system Model Designs]: Tasks vs Jobs for Humanity! #ecoNable #Econologics #ecoNVERGE
– based on Marshall McLuhan’s “Probes” to Life! – by design legend David Carson
Ultimately, The Book of Probes offers a prescient perspective on the present through the cerebral alchemy of McLuhan’s past-future. Kuhn concludes:
We cannot avoid being inundated by the powerful forces of the culture and technology that make up our environment, but we can look at their different effects and form strategies for controlling our destiny in the midst of the electric maelstrom. When we are faced with information overload, McLuhan tells us, the key to understanding is pattern recognition. The Book of Probes offers us that key.”
The probes themselves, wrapped in Carson’s equally provocative and thought-provoking visual micro-narratives, reveal not one McLuhan but many — the social psychologist (“The content of new situations, both private and corporate, is typically the preceding situation.”), the linguist (“Languages are environments to which the child relates synesthetically.”), the artist (“Color is not so much a visual as a tactile medium.”), the scholar (“The content of new situations, both private and corporate, is typically the preceding situation.”), and a near-infinite number more
Introduced by John Kellden, we probe or challenge the communities @ ECONOLOGICS (FB-group) or @ ecoNVERGE (LI-group) to think about how we can transform our thinking and acting in a new social economic model in which we let go of the concepts of “job” and “work” and instead base a new economy of the concept of “task”. Everyone on the planet is perfectly capable of doing one task at a time. We already have all the social platforms at our disposal, to coordinate tasks. If we build structures around tasks worth doing, these structures will serve us, rather than us serving existing structures.
Working out the potentials of the elements, the question is: where do we start and how do we convince a mass and the leaders driving the path of change… but equally important: politicians, educators, companies, etceteras…
How do we set a movement around these concepts or integrate in existing movements of change?
As John leaves us with the thoughts: “Structures that serves, designed according to living systems principles and ecosystemic awareness. Social tools and platforms for coordination of needed tasks. Engage in serious play and infinite games towards unlearning and then learn how to play well with each other and the planet.”
We probe or challenge you to think about how we can transform our thinking and acting in a new social economic model in which we let go of the concepts of “job” and “work” and instead base a new economy of the concept of “task”.
