THE ART AND SCIENCE OF INNOVATIVE COLLABORATION: THE FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY AND HUMANITY
Curiosity is the urge to know more about something. Being Curious is interest in others’ concerns, wondering, ready to poke around and figure something out. In mathematics, a square is the result of multiplying a number by itself, e.g. two times two. Among individuals or groups, Curiosity is squaring the acceleration of wonder, a vibrational internal energy in my mind and body.
Albert Einstein said, “I’m not smarter than anyone else. I’m just way more curious.”
What does curiosity consist of?
Curiosity for information
Curiosity for play
Curiosity for possibility and meaning
Curiosity can be applied to any situation with three simple steps:
Be interested: “That’s interesting.”
Ask: “What is this really about?”
Wonder: “What can I create with this?”
Curiosity is the Philosopher’s Stone that turns the base metal of fear and reaction into gold.
FREQUENCY THREE: MUTUALITY
Mutuality is a high degree of respect for each other’s humanity and expertise.
Tania and I are in a mutual relationship. We met on-line in a project. When she was young her father would read to her from a book I had written, The Merlin Factor. When she found out I wrote that book, the love she felt with her father became a background for our continuing conversations. We have never met in person, yet our mutuality is powerful. Mutuality is the way people are connected, to themselves, to others, and to the physical and natural world. It’s the way we are being with each other.
The density of the Space between people varies from completely clear/transparent/open/ empty to completely dense/closed/ blocked/full. Mutuality is a continuous area that is relatively free, available, or unoccupied, with the quality or state of being mutual. Attitudes, values, principles, beliefs, thoughts, fears, emotions, ideas, preconceptions, orientations, cultures and identities can occupy the space. Mutuality reduces the density of the space between people.
