How to organise / structure and  find / share
what we know about us, the world, and the in-between!

the Figure was published in MATTERS OF CONSEQUENCES check chapter 15 and the “evolution” of the figure in the footnote of Cop Macdonald:

Upon reading the manuscript for this book, he (Heiner Benking) felt that the first five transformational tasks outlined in this matter-of-consequence should be complemented by two things:

1) a sixth task that focused on the big picture, and 2) a visual device of some sort that would relate the individual tasks to the task–as–a–whole, to the entire earthly happening. We discussed the matter at some length, and Heiner introduced me to several “wheels of transformation” (WOVA and PEACEROOMS) that became the inspiration for Figures 1 and 2. In all of this, Heiner’s counsel was highly valuable and much appreciated.

My challenge is to connect and transcend sectors, categories, sign-systems, and scale and be helpful, do something that matters towards mount survival and awareness. See also expanding comapssion and reducing the infliction of suffering.


In roundtables I sometimes ask for concerns and offers people want to share, but I also “played” what is “your favourite animal or “plant” in a circle. Very effective to fast and deeply learn about others and “other, new” concern was to have people introduce themselves by concretely presenting what they have done and actually and concretely do & plan in these fields, and where they see sectors connecting. Here my examples as a teaser, but I must confess it is hard to shop real life actions into one sector and feel many aspects and perspectives are not fitting.


BePart - Whole

Decide (a) (b) - Govern (a)

Dialog - Community

Engage - Protest

Info - Educate

Social - Innovate

Please also take note of the footnote, and download the book:




You can also define and make use more sectors. But the “trick” is to be simple, cohefent, complete and meaningful towards “reaching mount awareness” and “do what matters” (Charles François). See his International Encyclopedia of Systems and Cybernetics.

Try to think about your real contributions and work also in the fields below:

For Syncons and Dialog methods see Barbara Marx-Hubbard and Jerome Glenn, Millennium Project best start here:

There are not only the circles, there is town-square in some cultures to bring together subjects and ALL QUADRANTS positions and have them overlap and mingle. Show for example in quadrants like how we can go beyond linear list to relations and other dimensions (scales) –This is what every management and strategy consultant like – a grid to explain options. See Ken Wilber being covered in the Wholeness Seminar in 1996 or so.

The next question is to show how sectors connect, what is the neighbour and the opposite position! And is there a sequence or line or rhythm in-between ! I hope you find out more about the eneagramm or Intelligent Enneagramm later. But before check these wheels as you know them from astrology and how such schemas try to explain, and how such schemas can bring “schools of thougth” into a shared context:


Maybe visit:

Such circles, and wheels are meaningful and helpful and are used in many cultures, and are even projected in depth, see 3-dimenional mandalas – goto: http://9-d.org we need to add here soon the ENNEAGRAMM and TENSEGRITY structures – but they are well covered in the work of Anthony Judge and Buckminster Fuller – so enjoy another slant on representations and displays here:

For multi-modal bridging between “orders”: Fig 2 (thanks Antony Judge) and Fig. 6 of this paper: Sharing and Changing Realities with Extra Degrees of Freedom of Movement presented in Aizu 1998 at: Computation for Metaphors, Analogy, Imitation & Embodiment, and Agents:



To address the subtle differences between meanings and values more has to be done than just contextualise and find common frames of references to negotiate unity in diversity. I propose to check out this recent research and project proposal and see these “stumbling blocks” to be addressed in inter-cultural, multi-lingual mediation and dialog and deliberation contexts:

Transcultural Dialog and Peace-Making: Stumbling blocks preventing true dialog, peace-making, and reconciliation:

1) we fight over words but do not check the meaning,

2) we do not question and compare the values attached to statements and attitudes,

3) we do not contextualize and embody concepts and meaning, do not check the sectors, regions, scales, proportions and consequences of alternative actions,

4) we do not give voice, empower, listen, cherish and cultivate difference or variety in dialog and decision making,

5) Disorientation and dumbing-down in Cyberculture and a misadministered and misunderstood, intangible  “Globalisation”: Where we get overloaded by communication noise (sign/symbol melange) and media demagogy which means: no trust and fidelity in the statements and no ways and means to check the credibility and impact/relevance, and get lost between the scales, brackets, and sectors.

6) The above incompatibility and incomparability opens the door for over-claims and oversimplifications. Leaders use intangible jargon (plastic-words), neglect impacts and avoid instead of exploring differences and alternatives.



The 2015 Herrenhausen Inquiry was a relevant step on a long way: See the session by Christakis on revisiting the CLUB OF ROME and ways to connect participative, normative and prognostic futures: “GOVERNING THE ANTHROPOCENE: CYBER-SYSTEMIC POSSIBILITIES?” Conference website report auf quergeist blog
