Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

a person (or group) with some form of ownership in an area can interact with other residents in 3 ways.

The Godling

the Godling acts as the undisputed owner and master of the area. they enforce the rules as they see fit, and their actions cannot be questioned. they believe that they alone know what is best for the area and the people. the Godling exhibits a deep sense of hierarchal order, elitism and entitlement similar to Confucianism and 'The Art of War'. the people may be allowed participation, but it will be limited to that which fits the vision of the Godling. there is no true freedom in this area.


The Guardian

the Guardian is the protector of the laws of the area, as well as protecting people from each other. they enforce the rules and will censor people that they perceive as threatening or inappropriate. the idea of prevention is the basis of their methods. their motivations can be benevolent; seeking peace and harmony similar to Buddhism. however, a sterile environment is also a stagnant one; lacking ideas that are outside of the mainstream.


The Guide

the Guide is the teacher and companion of an area. they are the collectors and keepers of knowledge, constantly teaching and learning from others. to them, the area belongs to the people. the Guide demonstrates and nurtures positive paths. conflict is considered an essential part of evolution and is allowed to resolve peacefullly. the area is truly FREE, but with dangers.


this scenario is independent of scale and can describe any similar situation. this goes all the way from governments to internet forums to families. try thinking about all of your own experiences in terms of these 3 models.

so which have you been? which have you experienced? which would you live with?

I'm curious how this architecture coincides with ownership of the area/property.

In order to act as a Godling, Guardian or Guide, must one own or be in control of the property rights?

ownership does not necessarily mean property rights. one can be a long-time member of an area without owning property. it means that the person has history with and a connection to an area.

Bot bad, but are there not other types as well?

So how would one be able to effectively take on one of these, or other defined roles without legal ownership of the properties concerned - especially in this world where patents, copyrights, deeds etc. are the rule?

Check how Delta did it in Evoke and you will see how.

do godlings and guardians observe the golden rule?
Comment by A.V.Koshy on May 6, 2010 at 5:15pm

Comment by Turil Cronburg on May 6, 2010 at 5:28pm
Of course, in Buddhism, and in at least some other forms of practice, psychology, and philosophy, we learn that real freedom comes from within, and that all these roles are sometimes taken on within the self, by parts of the self...

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle.

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
