  • ... learn & integrate & share & learn & integrate & share & learn & ...

     

    We need the nonlinear-transformation professionals back at work.

     

    Now.

     

    Modern culture offers a selection of professions to choose from: shopkeeper, policeman, baker, fireman, doctor, farmer. lawyer, politician, corporate manager, programmer, schoolteacher, mom...

     

    What if the services you came here to deliver are not listed on the tax forms?

    How can you activate your edgeworker talents?

    Where are your evolutionary colleagues?

     

    Evolutionaries Lab provides precisely mysterious experiences to upgrade your nonlinear-creation space-navigation skills.

     

    Evolutionaries Lab is also for you if you DO NOT want to deliver Expand The Box trainings or Possibility Labs yet you still want to use advanced Possibility Management tools, thoughtware, maps, and processes in your transformational work.

     

    ----------------------------

     

    We need the thoughtware-upgrading professions activated because if we keep using thoughtware handed down from generation to generation we can't create a different future... and we definitely need to create a different future.

     

    We need cultural-transformation professions because, if we do not escape from capitalist patriarchal empire and shift into archearchy, then we remain uninitiated adolescents and leave most of our human potential untapped.

     

    We need the initiators because the strategy of avoiding responsibility is also the strategy of avoiding consciousness and love.

     

    We need professions that contain the Everything and navigate the Nothing - the archetypal transformation professions - because the strategy of leaving unprepared professionals to face the demons in the transformational gaps between moments is not likely to succeed.

     

    We need Evolutionaries to facilitate context-shift for greater consciousness and presence in communities, businesses, next cultures, and learning environments centered on authentic adulthood initiatory processes.

    If this is you, then you are home.

     

    ---------------------------

     

    University is education. It adds content to your mind and upgrades what you know.

    EvolutionaryLab is training. It adds experiential distinctions to your energetic body and upgrades who you are.

     

  • Yes.

    All the classic questions can be answered: Who am I? What am I supposed to be doing here? What is reality? What is important? Who is in charge here? Where does meaning come from? What is truth? Where did I come from? What happens when I die? Did I live before? What is love? How do I get some? What is really going on here? Do I have to pay taxes? What's for lunch?

     

    All these questions can be answered, however, (as you've probably figured out by now...) each real answer gives birth to more real questions...

     

    If you follow this line of inquiry a bit further it leads to a number of practical realizations, for example:

    1. The answers are not as important as the next questions.

    2. Being able to ask any question is a core skill for navigating spaces because it gives you more options to choose from in each moment.

    3. Human beings are designed to fly in the gaps between answers even if it is scary.

    4. Those people who have learned to journey in the gaps suddenly get special jobs to do and services to provide for the village... jobs which other professions have neither the capacity nor the courage to deliver. (Responsibility is applied consciousness.)

    5. Learning something new has less impact than integrating into everyday interactions what you already know.

    No.

    This is not a religion. A religion believes in beliefs. EvolutionaryLabs have discovered that beliefs are a band-aid covering over the fear of asking the next question and possibly having no answer yet.

     

    No.

    This is not a sect. A sect asks you to stay small, repress your individuality, give your center away, your voice away, your authority away, your power away, your money away, and maybe your wife and kids away.

     

    At Evolutionaries Lab you keep your own authority, ask authentic curiosity questions, distinguish feelings from emotional reactions, keep your center, use your voice, get more relational (intelligence is the ability to interact), become the source of something more valuable than money for yourself, make boundaries, become a sword of clarity, escape your constructs so they become options that you own instead of prisons that own you, ask for what you want (even if it is impossible), transform yourself into something uncontrollable, and create something epic together.

     

    No.

    There is no Guru here. Neither is there a Priest, a President, a CEO, a Doctor, a Director, a Boss, a Dad... EvolutionaryLab is a Torus (http://torustechnology.org). Since there is no authority to blame in a Torus we find ourselves in deep shit... together.

     

    No.

     

    Just no.

    (It's not an accident that the "No" is standing here alone and without further explanation. It is there on general principles. Probably it means we reserve the right to say, "No", to anybody about anything at any time for no reason. You could reserve that right for yourself too.)

  • Maybe.

    Maybe the human race has already exterminated itself by unconscionably triggering the release of 500 gigatons of atmospheric carbon (in the form of carbon dioxide and methane) that Gaia has so carefully sequestered over millions of years (in underground coal, oil, natural gas, methane clathrates frozen in tundra and Siberian seabeds, and the massive arboreal forests). The sequestered carbon gave Earth stable enough climactic conditions to evolve a biological organism that was complex enough to become self-aware and flexible enouth to expand its consciousness within one lifetime.

     

    Yes, you are that biological organism.

     

    Maybe this is our chance... global warming, climate change, class 6 storms, mega-fires, ocean dead-zones, nuclear-weapons proliferation, wars between corporate-controlled shadow governments... maybe this is our chance to grow up, to go to the next level. Maybe we will make it...

     

    6,000 years ago hierarchies derailed the authentic adulthood initiatory processes that permit a person to transcend the two childhood misidentifications: "I am my body." and "I am my Box." Maybe are ready to reinstate the new initiatory processes that upgrade human thoughtware for creating generative cultures, and Gaia's human experiment will succeed...

     

    EvolutionaryLab is dedicated to doing everything it can to tilt the scale towards rapid evolution of human consciousness on planet Earth by empowering agents of transformation.

    We don't know, yet.

    Like all gameworlds, Evolutionaries Lab is an experiment. The EvoLab was created because some of us have been trying to get into a gameworld like this for our whole lives.

     

    Since we couldn't find an already existing gameworld that fulfilled our wishes we needed to build one ourselves.

     

    We don't know yet who else has been looking for something like this. We think EvoLab is an experiment in long-term caring friendships.

     

    What does that mean? We don't know, yet.

     

    We are pretty sure that Evolutionaries Lab is also a nanonation, a group of people sourcing the cultural context of radical responsibility and possibility.

     

    When will our nanonation be able to issue passports? We don't know, yet.

  • Evolutionary

    Lab
    ~ Bright Principles ~

    The term 'Evolutionary' is spelled with a capital letter to remind us that each action and inaction intends to serve Bright Principles.

    Integrity

    Doing what you say you will do, not necessarily what others define as "the right thing to do". Staying true to what moves you to be alive.

    Clarity

    Your swift, precise, radically honest, compassionately intelligent, razor sharp, present, dependable sword of clarity has two edges.

    Possibility

    Evolutionary, unpredictable, improvising, initiating, doing what needs to be done even if it has never been done before and you don't know how to do it.

    Loving Service

    Mutual support to help other Evolutionaries over the long-term deliver loving service of whatever is needed in abundance.

  • FAQs

    (Frequently Asked Questions)

    1. WHAT IS MEAN BY USING THE TERMS SOURCERESS  OR WYZARD  IN EVOLUTIONARY LABS? Such terms are commonly reserved for fantasy stories. We use them as additions to our self-image to remind us of the existence of our 5th body, our archetypal body (the other 4 bodies being: physical, intellectual, emotional, and energetic). By claiming 'Sourceress' or 'Wyzard' as part of your identity you eventually start admitting to yourself that your 5th body exists. Your identity expansion (for example, "I am a Personal Development Trainer Wizard Dad...") helps guard you from being hypnotized back into ordinary sleeping life where you might forget for days or weeks at a time that you even have a 5th body. The identity-space you occupy determines the tools you have available to use in each moment. A Sourceress and a Wyzard can do things that someone using only 4 bodies cannot do. As Robert A. Heinlein said, "One man's magic is another man's science."  (He obviously meant this to apply also to women.) (Using Heinlein's quote implies that what we are doing is science... and... uhhh... well... the tools and thoughtmaps are teachable, the results are duplicatable, and we do our work in Labs... What we are missing is public funding...)
    2. WHICH ANCIENT TEXTS DO YOU STUDY AS PART OF THE EVOLAB PROGRAM? None.
    3. BY WHAT AUTHORITY OR LINEAGE DO YOU CLAIM TO BE EVOLUTIONARIES? A person's title is declared by their own authority and proved through the results of their actions. Come sit around the campfire and listen to some Sourceress and Wyzard stories. If their stories have credibility for you, your answer to this question will be at hand. 
    4. HOW DO YOU DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN A SOURCERESS AND A WYZARD  IN EVOLABS? The difference comes from where they put their roots. A Sourceress sinks her roots deeply into the Earth and uses everything to navigate transformational processes - making something out of something else. A Wyzard sinks his roots deep into the void and uses the nothingness to create results - making something out of nothing. (NOTE: Obviously the feminine masculine thing does not have to correlate to this, but it often does. The answer as to why this might be so is probably archetypal.)
    5. WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY SCHOOL ? In the global ecology of gameworlds, there are many different classifications of gameworlds, such as: sports teams, gem collecting clubs, hospitals, businesses, not-for-profits, religions, special military forces, local and national governments, etc. One such classification of gameworlds is a school. Schools are learning gameworlds classified according to which of the 5 bodies is the focus for learning. Many schools - such as grade schools, high schools, colleges, and universities - use teachers to deliver content to the intellectual body. Other schools focus more on learning physical skills such as martial arts schools, dance schools, art schools, film schools, etc. Barbara Brennan's School of Healing, for example is an energetic body training school. Feelings Practitioner is an example of an emotional body training school. One classification of school is spelled with a capital "S" and specializes in training in all 5 bodies for the purpose building matrix to expand human consciousness. These 5-body Schools are further classified according to their structure (ranging from a hierarchical pyramid with a master or guru at the top, to a torus - shaped like a donut - with shared responsibilities and rotating spaceholders),
      and also classified according to their style (ranging from following a traditional set of teachings and practices to doing empirical research and implementing newly discovered distinctions and practices).
      Evolutionary Lab is an empirical torus, a team of people on an ongoing 5-body research and learning expeditions bonded together by the attraction to and the love of certain kinds of questions, particularly those questions that are rarely asked .

    6. WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF EVOLAB? The purpose of Evolutionaries Lab is to integrate in daily life what we may already know unconsciously but do not consciously apply, plus also to integrate answers, tools, and processes we find together while investigating the spaces opened up by questions most of us never dared to ask alone. We also have the purpose to document and share as widely as possible anything we discover that may help accelerate the evolution of human consciousness. This means whatever we discover is anti-proprietary. It cannot be copyrighted. It is all copylefted, open code, and protected by Creative Commons International 4.0 Attribute and Share Alike license (CC BY-SA 4.0), except, of course, the stunning rendition of Lady of the Lake illustration at the header, which is copyrighted 2005 by Michael Komarck http://komarckart.com/ccg_ana07.html.

    7. HOW DOES IT WORK? It works like this. In the film, The Mask of Zorro, someone asks Zorro, "Are you looking for something?" Instantly Zorro answers, "A sense of the miraculous in every day life." 
    The questions we investigate together during EvoLab cannot be answered. Or rather, they can be answered in an infinite variety of ways. Either case infers the miraculousness of what is.
    This is not saying that nothing can be known. Rather it is saying that things can be known at deeper and broader levels ad infinitum.
    Our efforts are made together in the name of, and with joyfully awesome respect for, the Mysteriousness that drives the force of Evolution in the Universe. The way we do it is to serve each other as gateways through which answers come when someone has authentic necessity in their next question.

    8. WHAT ARE YOUR CORE TEACHINGS? WHAT PRACTICES DO YOU USE? Ah, yes... well. As tempting as it might be to answer your question here, we would be doing you a significant disservice. This is a website. Its content skips four of your 5-bodies and briefly entertains your intellect. Your question is excellent. It would be a shame to kill it with an incomplete answer. Good questions can be hard to come by. Better to keep this question alive so you can use it in a more productive time and place...

    9. WHAT ARE THE EVOLABs ? Evolutionary Labs are our formal training and practice spaces - think of it as an evolutionary dojo - usually 5 days long, sometimes delivered in unusual places or under non-ordinary circumstances. Evolutionary Labs typically cost €650 to €950 (sliding scale) tuition plus room and self-prepared food. They are usually delivered by legendary Evolutionaries, or... why else would you attend?

    10. WHY ARE THERE PREREQUISITES TO THE EVOLAB ? How did you know about the prerequisites? Never mind... There are prerequisites because over the years we have learned the hard way that spaceships fly higher with less mass. It is not a rule. It is an observation. A heavier than normal condition can be rectified in flight, but usually at a high cost, such as someone leaving in the middle of a training. Therefore we prefer to pay the price up front before the spaceship takes off by making the prerequisites more stringent. The prerequisites for attending an EvoLab are that a participant be an already employed Evolutionary, has already participated in at least one Expand The Box training plus one Possibility Lab, (and, for extra credit, at least one Avalon Meeting), and that you have a personal Skype or Zoom call with the EvoLab Kaitiaki (the Guardian of the Realm) who, at this time, is Clinton Callahan.

    11. HOW CAN A PERSON KNOW IF THEY ARE AN EVOLUTIONARY ? Anyone, of course, can consider themselves to be an evolutionary. I mean, who could stop you? Nobody knows what you are actually thinking in there... If you want to think of yourself as an evolutionary, well, what a cool thing to think! You are the only person who can decide what you think of yourself. Even if no one else knows that you are an evolutionary you can decide to be an evolutionary. We only ask that if you ever decide to stop regarding yourself as an evolutionary you participate in a Decompression Ceremony with us so that your departure is graceful and so that we can all learn the most from the experience. Agreed? If you decide to be an evolutionary this is part of the deal.

     

  • 12. ARE THERE ADDITIONAL PREPARATIONS ? The interesting thing about preparations is that the Universe takes ongoing and careful note of the matrix you build through your preparations. Evolution occurs by reflex. What this means is, if you are, in reality, prepared to be initiated into the next level you may be automatically initiated into the next level whether you consciously decided to go there or not. The preparation initializes the initiation. What a fucking hell this can make of your life if you like your life the way that it is but the Universe comes along without warning and suddenly throws you into the next level simply because you were prepared for it ! "Grharhghaaagh!#!!?#? " (people have been heard saying something like this in such circumstances...) Yeah, well... what can you do? All in the daily life of an Evolutionary... And, yes... there are additional preparations, including a long list of mysterious movies of which you should see all of them in the company of other Evolutionaries, an equal number of important books to read, a serious number authentic initiatory processes you should go through in parallel.
