I’ve always been fascinated by consciousness, inner development, questions like “who am I” and “what is the meaning of I”.
I woke up when I was 13. Better said, I had a sudden and spontaneous awakening of the consciousness of being conscious at that age.
I wonder how many of you have had a similar experience?
My explorations of inner space were not unusual for the ’60s in America. Late in my teens, I learnt to meditate, took hallucinogens, and dove into group experiences of what we back then dubbed ‘sensitivity training’.
We felt we were explorers back then. I certainly had enthusiastic but unsophisticated experiences in those explorations. It was, to many and certainly to me personally, the beginning of a new consciousness. Back then we were exploring but pretty ignorant. Now young people often grow up knowing so much more about psychology, neuroscience and our mind-bodies.
But we still don’t know what consciousness is, where it arises from, how it might be extinguished or developed, and who or what else is conscious.
What I sometimes intuit and some scientists affirm is that we hallucinate our reality more than perceiving what is objectively there. Whatever ‘objectively’ and ‘there’ mean!
What do these ramblings have to do with the upcoming Tablelands Business Summit3.0, The Rise of Transformative Tech, on April 4? For me, the addition of transformative tech to my life is the extension of my ability to influence my state of mind, my consciousness, my self and my self-management with the boost of technological devices/apps/games.
Why would I bother with adding these new technologies to a life filled with more and more technology in the last few decades? I am all in with this new movement because these transformative tech devices create the next upleveling of self-awareness, of consciousness, and, eventually, of inner harmony and outer performance.
Technology does not have to incline us to distractedness, self-absorption, lack of connectedness to others (and ourselves!) and depths of depression or anxiety the way it often has in the last decades of the inexorable rise of IT.
It’s clear to me, after a lifetime of tinkering with and trying to expand my awareness, that Transformative Technology is the next logical step in my inner explorations. It has the added bonus of being able to enhance directly some not so trivial aspects of being capable in business: improved sleep, memory, focus, creativity, flow, and productivity, as well as awareness of when and how to work at my best.
You will surely have a different set of motivations to focus on transformative tech. I won’t try to guess or even imagine what inner or outer drives bring you to the TT movement. But I can have a go at guessing what you might yearn for in terms of performing well at whatever activity you value, whether it be business, sport, study, arts, or simply getting on better with yourself and others.
It isn’t much of a stretch to guess that you might also like to learn to de-stress, focus, work or learn/train efficiently, produce top performance and actually enjoy doing it!
I’m getting a glimmer of how much these wonderful words are turning into realities as I practice daily with my new tech tools.
Again, it isn’t too much of a stretch to guess that you might also like to have that experience.
If you want to have a door opened onto what trans tech might provide for your life and your business, Startup and Innovation Tablelands (ST) stands ready to offer that peek into what these new devices promise.
They also promise to promote calm and productivity affordably and more easily than in the long history of human fascination with our seemingly unique consciousness.
I’m loving my new devices in complete contradiction to my status as a dinky-di Digital Dinosaur. I’ve turned 70 and, though I often feel an alien with tech, these devices are different! Instead of feeling more disconnected, I feel more connected. Instead of being riveted to a screen, I turn away from these devices feeling that the world around me is endlessly riveting. Instead of being put off by the frustrations of the non-digital native trying to cope with complex machines, I revel in the ease of use of this new generation of game-changing devices. Instead of making high cost, fraught decisions about how to make positive changes in life and business, these increasingly cheap devices make it easy to experiment with different choices until I find the combination I need.
So who wants to join ST in the next Tablelands Business Summit and find out more about Transformative Technology? We will gallop through an introduction to the subject and hope to give each and everyone present an AHA experience! We will introduce what TT is, how to use the devices ST now has, what research we have done, which devices are good for what wants and needs, where to buy and what to pay.
ST will roll out follow up programs so those whose AHA experiences drive them to dive deeper will have ample opportunities to do just that.
