A special and touching appeal has come ... from a diplomatic correspondent which relates to her beautiful four-year old son, Devan. [I hope it is appropriate to use…Continue
I have so many heroes, real and avatar, who have had so profound an effect on Evoke Season 1; and so little time remains for acknowledging them all.
and Please also see a.v.koshy's efforts at listing heroes as well, at http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/my-top-evokers-not-in-any?xg_source=activity…Continue
A.V.Koshy, extraordinary contributor, commentor, and rebel on Evoke Season 1 is a tireless and insightful hero. Choosing from among his 161 blog posts, 20 discussions, 21 photos, and 5 videos (among these ony 82 remain; there were so many more) is an almost impossible task. A loyal friend and supporter of many on and off evoke, koshy is a master network builder, colleague, and independent…Continue

Amazing collaborative Evoke agents Patricio Buenrostro-Gilhuys and Nick Heyming are doing so much to restore bio-diversity, sustainable gardening and resilient, collaborative communities through their work on and outside Evoke that they are epic heroes to me. Despite Patricio's work and broken arm, and Nick's…Continue
My fellow agent Ternura Rojas has added her light and intelligent voice, in English and in Spanish, to many of the posts, discussions, and message boxes in Evoke. Finishing all her rune assignments, sharing many discussions, photos and videos, working, and research, Ternura also found time to keep agents informed of developments on Evoke in her runner line, and…Continue
Here are some of the additional issues I am considering pertinent to the establishment of Hajj for Humanity as a 501C3- and shari’a law approved humanitarian foundation, for which more expert analysis and advice is needed:
(1) The premise of "Hajj for Humanity" is based upon the apparent spirit of cooperation and mutual toleration among and between peoples of various religious sects, nationalities, races during the Hajj. I am hoping that "Hajj for Humanity" project leadership,…
(everybody, this is PATRICIO's OUR Farms post. I just did content and grammar editing for him. This Evokation isn't mine. I don't have patricio's email, and it is too big for Evoke message (by like 40,000 characters), so sent it back this way. his EVOKATION address link is:…Continue

There are seven continents, hundreds of nations, thousands of cultures of humanity living on our interdependent Earth. One central concept, upheld by the U.N. and other governing bodies, by nations and individuals, is that there are “universal” human rights.…Continue
The world continues to face urgent and ongoing problems, ranging from black swan events to miasmic trends. Finance, food security, energy, environment, water issues, gender issues, human and earthling-species "global rights," the drive to not only survive but thrive -- Evoke agents listen, learn, look, leap -- whenever and wherever they are needed. Their code? Honor, team, support, sustainability. Their manifesto? Below:…Continue
Robots have not yet ascended to a level of development wherein they are capable of a hostile uprising. But the possibility exists.
This crisis can occur any where in the world, at almost any time suitable technological levels have been obtained. The crisis could be holistic, causing collapse of all support systems and integrated interfaces as we have come to use them.
It is best to be prepared.
Given the networking capabilities and AI capacities of the anticipated Robot…Continue

When I am 100, or, if our peoples and communities have become resilient and health issues no longer as limiting as they are today, when I am 100 years older than now, I would like to imagine that the world has become a cohesive, resilient and interdependent grouping of communities, nations, regions and peoples. I would like to imagine that Mother Earth is the base planet for off-terrestrial expeditions, and that we, as humans, have evolved enough so that possible contact (nods to Carl Sagan…Continue
(this is only a drawing because i don't have the programming skills to construct it yet, and I don't have a camera, so couldn't make a mock-up and photograph it. so drew picture in MS paintbrush.)
From an evolutionary perspective, mankind is still immature; industrialized humankind, balancing tenuously between the ecosystems of the world and non-technological/indigenous cultures, is still more immature. The North American Hopi First Nations tribe, and the South American Kobi First…Continue
