Meet With Your Team To Replace Your Lone-Wolf Thoughtware
Matrix Code YOURTEA1.04
Western culture is far removed from indigenous village culture. We are given nearly NO access to how to connect in and collaborate with a field of villages. Yet we have such a longing to belong to a tribe.
Co-creating the co-intelligent collaborations in a next culture Tribe as a Spaceholder is as different from being a Lone Wolf Leader, as being a Lone Wolf Leader is different from being a communal-intelligence villager.
Learning Spaceholder skills is undeniably terrifying to a Lone Wolf. All we know are role models of 'leaders' (The concept of 'Leadership' automatically enforces the concept of 'Followership': one master many slaves, one winner many losers.)
There is the fear of losing 'anonymity', the fear of losing personal (Box and Gremlin) 'freedom of choice', the fear of having to Negotiate Intimacies in a group or the fear of 'being naive and stupid, and falling victim to being fooled into joining a sect.
How can you say what you need, or be accountable to your Tribe, if you do not even know how to feel or communicate? There are so many new territories both inside us and outside of us to explore, and so many potentials to unfold. Yet the benefits of becoming a member of a Tribe - especially a small Tribe that you help to invent from scratch - are so valuable that engaging the Learning Spiral and engaging Go! Beep! Shift! Go! learning are worth the tribulations, even if you might feel confused or embarrassed along the way. Inventing archiarchy - we are all in this together.
This Experiment is to meet online or offline with a friend for about an hour for a private conversation. Ask them if they are willing to have a confidential conversation with you, to not tell anyone about what you will say. If they say, "Yes," and you believe them, ask them to hold a safe space for you. Shut your eyes, and let them hear from you about your secret pains of being a Lone Wolf in one way or another.
Start your sentences with phrases such as:
I never really thought about the price I pay to be a Lone Wolf.
I have so many secrets.
I have secrets about my inner life. Nobody actually knows that I:
