Nano means one billionth. The term 'nanonation' comes from realizing that seven people, the size of a functional team, is one billionth of Earth's current human population.
A nation can be defined as the cultural-context-space being held by a group of three or more people mutually committed to each other while serving a common purpose. Jesus was reported to have explained that wherever two or more people are gathered their common purpose would come to life. We have learned some additional things since then. It actually takes three or more people to start a nanonation.
Why three or more? Because human beings function within an identity-framework they have used since childhood to assure their survival. The identity-framework (called the Box in Possibility Management) is a filter interpreting the world so you can figure out how to survive. The filter asserts its own rightness, even if it is right about you being wrong, or not good enough, a failure, stupid or bad. When two identity frameworks – each one functioning under the survival imperative that they be right – come into conflict, who provides the clarity that the two individuals are simply misidentified as their Boxes? This is the job of the third person.
A superstition is an easy-to-understand concept that has no basis in reality. Believing a superstition blocks the perception of more useful possibilities. But superstitions are not called superstitions until they are recognized as superstitions. Before then they are regarded as the truth.
A superstition that participants in modern culture have not yet identified as a superstition is 'the nation-state.' This superstition became popular as the belief grew “If you get the resources we die, so we will do whatever it takes to get the resources. We will prove that we have the legal right to take the resources by calling ourselves a nation-state, with a flag, a constitution, and a set of laws."
This superstition includes the concept that a nation-state is connected to a piece of land on Earth. Since all the land on Earth has already been claimed by the current 206 nation-states accepted by the United Nations, it is logical to assume that no new nation-states can emerge on Earth.
But the connection between a nation-state and a plot of land is not a law of nature. It is a concept invented in the imaginations of human beings, pure fiction, a story marketed to you by – you guessed it! – the current set of nation-states.
The concept that land on Earth can be owned by either a person or an organization is pure fiction, another superstition, easy to understand, but asserted without basis in reality.
In addition, the laws that declare the legality of individuals or corporations buying and selling land or mineral rights, and the laws declaring that nation-states rule over anyone or anything inhabiting the land they have claimed, are also completely fabricated.
If we were to define a 'false paradigm' as a construct that leads to degraded ecosystems and mass extinction of life on Earth, then the modern rule of law adopted by western civilization is a false paradigm. The modern rule of law is suicidal and ecocidal. Anyone following the rule of law of western civilization is criminally insane. Anyone enforcing the rule of law of western civilization has already forfeited their life.
If the laws of a nation-state are assumed to apply to any person standing on soil claimed to be possessed by that nation-state, then when I set foot on the soil of a different nation-state I would automatically be issued a passport from that nation-state. But this does not occur. I lived beyond the borders of the United States of America for nineteen years yet the laws of the USA still applied to me until 2015 when I exchanged my US passport for that of a different nation-state, Germany.
Anyone who carries a US passport is required by the laws of the USA gameworld to pay taxes to the United States Internal Revenue Service even if they live on foreign soil. This means there is already a precedent for a nation-state existing no matter on which piece of land the bearer of a passport of that nation-state stands. Therefore nation-states are not defined as being associated with pieces of land on Earth.
From the Wikipedia nation-state page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation_state: It has been speculated by both proponents of globalization and various speculative fiction writers that the concept of a nation-state may disappear with the ever-increasingly interconnected nature of the world, with governance handled on the local level, based on a global ethic of human [and nature] rights.
Hierarchical Power Structures
At present, every United Nations member nation-state uses hierarchical power structures. Using a hierarchical power structure is a fatal design flaw because a hierarchical power structure automatically selects for psychopaths.
How? In hierarchies, power positions are obtained by those who do whatever it takes to move up the ladder. The persons best suited to do whatever it takes to get power are the 2% of the human population born with no conscience, in other words, with no connection between their mind and their heart, the sociopaths and psychopaths.
This is why petitioning any current global (or local) hierarchy to create a bright future for humanity on Earth produces no positive results. Creating a bright future for humanity is not even on a psychopath's agenda.
In the past fifty years global hierarchies in every sector have been hijacked by psychopaths – religious, financial, political, educational. The psychopathic agenda is to do whatever it takes to stay in control and garner even more power and money to protect their terrified little selves.
Current global systems will not be corrected by reasonable goodwill wisely choosing from outstanding proposals. For example, notice how ineffectively the global systems are responding to the challenges of climate change. The COP meetings have failed. Corrections that would direct climate change back towards liveable conditions on Earth already exist and have been known for decades. Why have they not been enforced?
A designed-in characteristic of representative governments is that your representative does not speak for you; they speak for themselves. Since money is valued in that system, your representative’s voice has already been bought by corporate interests, all the way up to the Supreme Court, the Presidency of the USA, and the United Nations. The only person who can speak for you is you. When you try speaking out in the current system you get pepper-spray in the face and added to the list of state-enemy terrorists.
Your nanonation is a gameworld, built out of pure genius and spit - like all the other gameworlds that exist in the world - such as banks, religions, grocery stores, schools, governments, militaries, post offices, jobs, restaurants, automobile driving, soccer, chess, and so on. Clarity about what a gameworld is, and how your gameworld works, is key to Cavitating Culture Space for your gameworld.
Never forget that courage and commitment will turn the key of Clarity to open the door to a new future.
GET CLARITY ABOUT YOUR CONTEXT
Your Context is your Nanonation's relationship to Consciousness and Responsibility. For example, the context of modern culture promotes externalizing costs to the environment, future generations, and society at large, in other words, to do everything you can to avoid responsibility. In contrast with this, the nomadic Nanonation of Possibilica has a context of Radical Responsibility.
Edgeworkers often make a big mistake by ignoring the Context question. They think, "Hey, I want to start a community! Anybody else want to start a community with me?" Then they end up with a group of twenty or so enthusiastic partners. There are the activists, the anarchists, the home-schoolers, the freeschoolers, the unschoolers, the Sociocracy 3.0 experts, the Holocracy experts, the Torus Technology experts, the Buddhists, the fundamental Christians, the atheists, the Earthship fanatics, the straw bale fanatics, the vegetarians, the vegans, the tantric yoga practitioners, and the people from Mensa, each with their own Context. When the team meets, each faction of course wants to bring in their own Context with their own needs and project visions because they believe their Context the best thing humanity ever invented, and they love it the most. The result of these meetings is Context War. In this case it is very difficult to make decisions that make people happy, and people often complain of sensing a lack of community.
SIDE NOTE: If you think that 'community' is the purpose of your project, then at your very first meeting your Purpose is achieved and your project is over. The rest of the time you all sit together arguing around what kind of retirement home makes your Box and Gremlin most comfortable.
FIND YOUR CORE TEAM
Instead of looking for a lot of people with the same purpose, e.g., to create a community, look for two or three people with the same Context. Then when your small Core Team meets, work to clarify and deepen that Context together. Clarify the Distinctions. Experiment with the Practices. Deepening your Nanonation Context creates a gravity-well or an attraction-field of Necessity that other people can detect who are longing to co-create within the same Context as you. They will gradually find you. Then when you meet, the Necessity itself generates projects within the shared Context. The result is that at the end of each meeting everyone knows what to do, decisions are almost effortless, and people share a deep of camaraderie and alignment. Many large successful nanonations were started with a core team of three people, such as Zegg, Findhorn, and Tamera. Committing to other Team members is a difficult decision to make. There are 5 factors that you can look for to help you assess if you should commit to someone or not. Take a look a the 5 Factors for Commitment section below for some useful hints.
Remember, the point is to exit the capitalist patriarchal empire and Cavitate New Culture Space for Archiarchy in which your Nanonation can thrive. If already existing Constitutions worked then you could use them as model... but capitalism, patriarchy, and empire are three globally suicidal paradigms. This means you get to start over. There are very few Archiarchal constitutions to model on, so feel into it with your team. Get in a hot tub together, hike to the top of the mountain and meditate on a large stone for awhile, sit in the desert fasting for three days and see what vision comes to you, then write it down. Writing it down on paper is an alchemically transformative action. If you don't write it down, it doesn't exist. Keep it short and simple. Then share it with the world, keeping one ear open for feedback, and your Energetic Sword out so you are not collapsed by other people's fear about the appropriate trouble you are causing.
WRITE YOUR BILL OF WRONGS
What is allowed is whatever is not on the Bill Of Wrongs. This is the opposite strategy of what has been used by the capitalist patriarchal empire countries. Patriarchy hires lawyers to defend people and corporations doing wrong things ('wrong' is defined here as anything non-regenerative, or non-cradle-to-cradle, or threatening the extinction of species) saying that what they are doing is within their so-called 'rights'. By using a 'Bill Of Wrongs' instead of a 'Bill Of Rights', whole classes of behaviors are explicitly forbidden with only a few words.
MAKE YOUR FLAG
The British came to India and planted their flag and said, "We claim this territory in the name of the Queen of England."
The locals said, "What!?! Are you idiots?!? People have been living here for thousands of years!"
The British said, "Oh, yeah? Where's your flag?"
Don't be caught without a flag.
Make it colorful, simple, and symbolically powerful, but make it. Then fly it boldly.
WRITE YOUR CODEX AND CONTINUE TO DEEPEN ITS CONTEXT
Your Codex is the collection of your Rules of Engagement, in other words, specifically how to play in your gameworld.
By the way, you don't have to worry about specifying a formal procedure for entering your gameworld. The answer to the question, "Can I be a member of your nanonation?" is simple. The answer is, "No."
Can people contribute to your gameworld? Yes, of course, in many ways. As they collaborate with you the gameworld itself will decide whether it needs them or not. Let the gameworld decide, like an amoeba decides what it wants to eat by engulfing something or rejecting it.
When a person is taken in by your gameworld it will be automatically clear that they belong there. Do be clear how to have someone leave. Do not place your Codex at the center of your gameworld. That is where your values or Bright Principles belong. Put your Codex over on a shelf as more like guidelines, if you know what I mean - something that can be consulted when needed. But keep them up to date and accurate, and visible to the outside world. Someone wanting to play in your gameworld would want to know how the game goes first.
CLARIFY YOUR VALUES AND YOUR ECONOMY OF EXCHANGE
Archiarchal Economics is simple to understand. The ones at the bottom of the economic gravity-well have the Authority to assure that resources are not hoarded at the top but instead flow through every bank account in the economic ecosystem. This is similar to the 'Subak' system used in Bali, where the rice-terrace caretakers at the bottom of the mountain assure that the water is not hoarded at the top of the mountain, but instead flows through every rice field on the mountain at the right time because this insures the best outcome for the whole Village.
Our favorite network is the Global Ecovillage Network. Here you can register your nanonation for free as a permanent or nomadic autonomous ecovillage in the 'formation' stage or 'already existing' stage. There are so many friends to meet here!
Make The Codex Of Your Nanonation
When they are written up, your Rules Of Engagement become your 'Codex'.
Your Codex is not rules to which your nanonation gives its center.
Your Codex sits quietly over on a shelf at the side of your gameworld, to refer to when needed.
“The codex is more what you’d call ‘guidelines’ than actual rules.”
Nebbi: I was speaking of the amusing notion of 'chatter rule: Democracy. A curious delusion - as if adding zeros could produce a sum. But it was tried in your tribal land [America] on a mammoth scale... They still have elections and all that?
Oscar: The last time I looked, yes.
Nebbi: Oh, wonderful. Fantastic, simply fantastic. Well we must get together, I want to quiz you. I've been studying your planet a long time - the most amazing pathologies in the explored universes.
Oscar: Look, my country isn't perfect. But I don't enjoy hearing it from a stranger.
Rufo: Nebbi is right. Except that he only sees the surface. Democracy cannot work. Mathematicians, peasants, and animals, that's all there is - so democracy, a theory based on the assumption that mathematicians and peasants are equal, can never work. Wisdom is not additive; its maximum is that of the wisest woman or man in a given group.
A democratic form of government is okay, as long as it doesn't work. Any social organism does well enough if it isn't rigid. The framework does not matter as long as there is enough looseness to permit that one woman or man in a multitude to display her genius. Most so-called social scientists seem to think that organization is everything. It is almost nothing - except when it is a straightjacket. It is the incidence of heroes that counts, not the pattern of zeroes.
Your country has a system free enough to let its heroes work at their trade. It should last a long time - unless its looseness is destroyed from the inside... I could never be a democrat at heart. To claim to 'respect' and even to 'love' the great mass with their yaps at one end and smelly feet at the other requires the fatuous, uncritical, saccharine, blind, sentimental slobbishness found in some nursery school supervisors, most spaniel dogs, and all missionaries. It isn't a political system, it's a disease. But be of good cheer; your American politicians are immune to this disease... and your customs allow the nonzero elbow room.
The one thing that stands out as this empirical way of running an empire is that the answer to most problems is: do nothing.
Even positive edicts of the Imperium are usually negative in form: Thou Shalt Not Blow Up Thy Neighbors' Planet. (Blow up your own if you wish.) Hands off the Guardians of the Gates. Do not demand justice, you too will be judged.
Above all, do not put serious problems to a popular vote. No civilized planet uses Democracy. Vox Populi, Vox Dei translates as: "My God! How did we get into this mess?"
This nonsystem holds together by having no togetherness, no uniformity, never seeking perfection, no utopias - just answers good enough to get by, with lots of looseness and room for many ways and attitudes.
It is clearly necessary to be forthwith about the laws and customs of your own nanonation. But they need not be complicated. Your rules of engagement need to be written up in your nanonation's Codex. A simple foundation for regenerative culture could be documented in your Codex something like this:
The context of our culture is radical responsibility. Irresponsibility is an illusion. If you see a job to do, it is your job. When you are serving something greater than yourself and you ask for what you want you are asking for what the space wants. We work in circles with spaceholders and context holders, calling decisions through direct access to nonlinear possibility and including the wisdom of resistance. We meet using Torus Technology until everyone knows what to do next. We vigilantly apply our Bill Of Wrongs. There are no employees. There are no absentee landlords. There are no franchises or copyrights or inheritance. We use Archiarchy Economics. There is no currency exchange. There is no such thing as profit. If you cannot afford to recycle every plastic bag you make, you cannot afford to make any plastic bags. Manufacturing is cradle-to-cradle. If you cannot carry it with you it is too much to own. Companies are not people because companies cannot take responsibility. There are no company owners or investors. Time is not money; time is time. Money from other nation-states has no value here. We do not need money to survive. We need each other empowered through creative collaboration, which is our currency, and which has no exchange rate with currencies from other nation-states. Land is not owned; it is cared for. Buildings are not owned, they are cared for. Animals, minerals, water and trees are not owned, they are cared for. We are kaitiaki, guardians, stewards. Earth cannot be monetized because we are the Earth. Education does not conform to a curriculum because we don’t know what children need to learn to become themselves for the future. Each child knows for themselves. There aren’t any televisions. Ongoing adulthood initiatory processes drenched in extraordinary and archetypal love are at the core of our gameworld. The rest of our culture – music, clothing, festivals, theater, foods, art, economics, architecture, technology, thoughtware, and ceremonies – falls into place around ongoing authentic transformational adulthoodinitiations.
Out of these distinctions the entire culture of Possibilica emerges with all the practical details of everyday life. Sourcing a nanonation relocalizes autonomy. It is immensely rewarding.
Even when you leave the circle or the land cared for by your nanonation, you never have to put the bubble of your nanonation’s context away so as to conform to the expectations and assumptions of other people’s conscious or unconscious cultural affectations. When you step outside the confines of your nanonation it is the equivalent of going vagabonding through Southeast Asia. There are many astonishingly weird cultures and beliefs out there. Conversations between citizens of different nation-states become interesting rather than conflicting. They could start something like this: “You may not be aware of this but you are speaking with a person who lives in a different nation-state than you. Do you expect that the laws and customs of my nation-state apply to you? Then don’t expect that the laws and customs of your nation-state apply to me. How are such things handled in your nation-state? Here is how we handle such things in my nation-state…”
It looks like 100 million interdepending nanonations are emerging all over the planet. We are shifting out of capitalist patriarchal empire into transdigenous Archiarchy where neither the masculine nor feminine dominate, but rather archetypally initiated adult women creatively, adventurously, and lovingly collaborate with archetypally initiated adult men.
Make The Bill Of Wrongs Of Your Nanonation
The traditional Bill Of Rights leave too many loopholes for corporations and lawyers to get through.
Even the Supreme Court of the United States Of America and the United Nations have been bent to serve the corporate agenda.
By implementing a simple Bill Of Wrongs a new world of clarity is created.
Below is a sample Bill Of Wrongs from the nanonation of Possibilica.
Possibilica recognizes that the so-called 'rule-of-law' of the so-called 'modern civilization' (capitalist patriarchal empire) is a failed construct leading directly to planetary suicide and near-term human extinction. Therefore, Possibilica recognizes that anyone continuing to abide by the rule-of-law of modern civilization is criminally insane, and anyone defending the rule-of-law of modern civilization has already forfeited their life.
Therefore, Possibilicans abide by a Bill of Wrongs.
The Bill Of Wrongs Of The Nanonation Of Possibilica
The Bill of Wrongs of the Nanonation of Possibilica:
Forbids modern civilization’s rule of law.
Forbids ownership of land.
Forbids ownership of mineral or organic resources (so-called 'natural resources').
The Bill Of Wrongs Of The Nanonation Of Possibilica does not pretend to abide by natural law, because natural law can be construed to allow parasites, gangsters, vampires, zombies, ghouls, blackmail, corruption, manipulation, revenge, power over, cancers, disease viruses, survival-of-the-fittest concepts, psychopaths, and acts of God. And if you have ever seen hungry frigate birds snatch up and swallow freshly-hatched baby sea turtles scuttling frantically and defenselessly towards the ocean waves, you know that nature can be construed to allow terrorists too. The Bill Of Wrongs exists in Possibilica out of choosing Radical Responsibility for our Context.
5 Factors for Commitment
FIVE FACTORS FOR DECIDING TO COMMIT TO ANOTHER PERSON
These five factors prove sufficient for successful mutual Commitment with another human being:
PHYSICALLY: The other person actually does what they say they will do. They keep their promises. This is one definition of 'Integrity'.
ARCHETYPALLY: You and the other person agree on which Context you use to mutually support each other to become the space through which your Archetypal Lineage provides Service to the village. (Context is your relationship to responsibility and consciousness - which level do you agree to choose: no responsibility / child level / adult level / high level / radical responsibility.)
Lacking clarity about any of these 5 factors for mutual commitment suggests that a person is uninitiated. Committing to them may be naïve. That does not mean to avoid committing. You can commit temporarily, for example, as an experiment, to test your intuitions. Being with other people is easier when you can trust yourself to take care of yourself around them. This happens when you yourself are initiated. When you are initiated, it does not matter if the other person is not committed, because you can take care of yourself around them. Nice, eh?
Far more people than you might now imagine are actively living part or all of their lives in temporary, nomadic, or permanent Autonomous Zones. For example, the annual Burning Man TAZ in Nevada is fully booked out at 68,000 people, and the Boom Festival TAZ in Portugal sells out at 43,000 participants. Many additional next-culture festivals now flourish. (See Further Resources below.)
The wish and capacity of mature human beings to create and experience diverse cultural spaces is increasing. Nomadic, Temporary, and Permanent Autonomous Zones already thrive and rapidly expand in diversity, number and duration all over the world. Perhaps your most effective actions for escaping the grips of the capitalist patriarchal empire include stepping with more commitment into your local autonomous zones.
The updated advice from R. Buckminster Fuller rings true: "You never change things by fighting against the existing gameworlds. To change things, build new gameworlds that makes the existing gameworlds irrelevant." People together around the world are already doing just this.
Why 100 million? Because from practical experience the maximum number of voices that can be heard in a circle is about sixty. Add in some children to get seventy, then divide seventy into seven billion – the approximate human population of Earth and you get 100 million. (7×10 to the 9th divided by 70 = 1×10 to the 8th = 100,000,000).
Don’t get left behind playing in a stupid gameworld.
Seasteading creates free-standing nanonations in water. As with any nanonation is central to establish an agreed-upon context, thoughtware distinctions, and rules of engagement for your seastead gameworld.
How To Establish Your Rights As One Of Humankind with Greg Paul
Here is a video of Greg Paul from speaking with some amount of clarity about you taking radical responsibility for your natural sovereignty. Greg says quite frankly: “It’s about removing the middle-men... from all things…” and continues: “Wherever the true sovereigns stand, a new earth is beginning to emerge… The only question that remains is: Are you ready to join us?”
“The so-called system is nothing more than an elaborate game of monopoly; the only thing that makes it harder to see is that your token for the game happens to have a name that sounds similar to yours, but it doesn’t make you the ship, unless you take a title rather than to stand as a man or woman only; knowledge of the law for mankind is the key to be free.“
Sovereignty has become a hot topic of increasing interest over the last nine months, as apparent designated authorities in our society aim progressively to limit our abilities to live and act freely as individuals.
What does it mean to be sovereign? How does one stand confident in his/her sovereignty in the face of external controls? How do we reclaim our natural rights as free men and women, which pre-existed and will outlast these systems?
Imagine a world living abundantly, while within its limits. A world that is regenerating rather than depleting the environment, and where cooperation and connection in the village is rewarded.
The Global Ecovillage Network provides you now with bridges to such . The organization and its trainings spread the physical and cultural technology of ecovillages. We invite you to get involved with this work!
Experiments are the steps you take to unfold yourself
into the world.
Unfolding happens by reflex when you build matrix to support new awareness.
To remind the people of Earth that we share this planet, no matter of national boundaries. We thrive by taking care of each other and this incredibly beautiful planet we live on.
The seven rings are centered on the flag representing the seven continents and forming a flower in the middle, signifying life on Earth. The intersection of the rings represent that all things on Earth are linked directly or indirectly. The deep-blue represents the ocean and the importance of water for life on Earth.
