PSYCHOPATHOLOGY: a pathological deviation from normal or efficient behavior; psychosis.
We don't allow it in our communities why are we allowing it on the world stage by the consensus of a FEW. Pre-emptive strike talk has made this out of control and unconditional support of such conditions makes me not able to find compatability in thought and philosophy with such a stand/position. I respectfully want to make it known I am in FULL DISagreement with Israel's unconditional support and feel ALL sides must find mechanisms/process to de-escalate and retreat to act rationally again.
I suggest....a petition for a referendum on the issues and as such initially a petition for an immediate moritorium on all militry actions and planning and for us all to come to some less lethal status. We are playing with WMD's and I didn't authorise their use did you? Who makes such decisions on our behalf and what are THIER interests and motivations???? PETITIONS and REFERENDUM are simple and legal processes, getting behind them in numbers not so simple. There is an official page at the Whitehouse site for OFFICIALLY registering a petition. This IS doable, no need for process through a represenational system with mixed views and motivations. There is no time for dispute and contradiction while WMD are used, considered or even armed/available as the GLOBE will pay the consequences and I feel it very arrogant of a few to feel they speak for all of humanity. This can be and must be stopped.
ANY issue/policy/choices before Congress and Senate can be fast tracked/bypassed with a petition and supporting referendum on the choices to overturn or modify, regardless of how it sits now in politics and processes in place. To move we HAVE the process just no one seems to know how much power we HAVE right NOW and without any revolutions or civil wars, but by exercising our DIRECT democratic right which is TRUE democracy imo.

Over the last weekend I attended 2 conferences in NY, one was Contact (which was a great event) followed by MetaCurrency project meeting.
In both events attended a representative from OWS.
He’s been living there for the last 3 weeks and wanted to see if and how the ideas presented at the 2 conferences can help or be integrated with the OWS cause.
He shared some of his experience but to our great surprise said that his biggest problem at the moment is getting sleep!
Apparently some people are taking advantage of the freedom and openness of the OWS movement.
Homeless people, junkies and others are coming over, taking blankets, eating the food, harassing the occupiers, disturbing the peace and sleep and also interfering with the ongoing discussion and voting processes.
The bind is that the group declares openness, transparency and freedom as some of its principal of operations and decline to use any known methods of enforcing order and by that (in their view) accepting the system rules to which they object to.
I should say at this point that I support qualitative change and I would like to see OWS creating one.
Can it be that a qualitative change cannot be achieved without some quantitative one?
My view is that such a change demands a different ecology of mind, hopefully OWS and other movements would help facilitate such a change.

Something to ponder/consider and to pass around to those already involved in the Occupation crews and those still in planning stage. This is something the people can do without the need for outside intervention:
Set up camps in the occupation crews/mobs with tents for discussion, debate and as command centers for info and press releases. The idea is to make it a "working" occupation. The various tents/camps can be topically organised as Economy, Banking, Health care, Democracy/Politics, Social Benefits, Capitalism or any other set up funnelling organised thought.
This could turn the occupations into a carnival like atmosphere where people float around to various tents for info and input as they would a trade show or convention. Those tents/organisers use Google Docs as a common shared workspace to produce a Manifesto (proposed changes) and use that to create individual petitions, referendums and formal applications for legislative change put to a referendum not the tradition representational democracy that we have. That way we have direct democracy on key issues that can be identified and proposed by working groups throughout north America. The others can become advisors and mentors for those on site. We have access in as much as access viewing so we can organise authoritative and sound advisory support to be phoned in, online, involved in the workspace.
The idea is to consolidate the various manifesto's and various petitions into regional, local and national planning toward required procedural and legislative reform. The direct democracy can make turn around very short (weeks not months).
This format would bring out the best in everyone, make it a historically significant event and come away proud to know that solutions were proposed and actions are planned and a new support network of advisors can be taken back to everyone's respective communities and introduced as part of any local initiatives proposed in the "Knowledge Camps".
I have the idea to invite Google to help and Apple to help and others who can supply tents and logistics equipment that are NOT part of the "establishment" most despised by the protesters. That is we don't want corporate sponsors who are part of the problem. I think this can take on a carnival like atmosphere with positive progress that can be tracked daily. I personally feel that a whole host of new ideas and solutions will cascade from the discussions. This can be like the days when the founding fathers sat in tents and came up with the constitution. The same thing can happen again. No need for cops battling protesters. If we set up a group like the above, that would tend to be self policing imo toward non violence and disruption. Both would be self defeating to any action groups.
Yes there will be conflict from the loud and noisy anarchists but that doesn't need to be the tone and profile of the entire event. Those noisy anarchists need to be deflected and subdued to make way for constructive debate and progress. In the end the rational logic of those intentions I feel will prevail over any anarchy and disruption. At least we better plan for it (to accommodate the rage and confront crowd and agitators). Those agitators will be there, so it best be part of the logistical planning for security and order and should not need a police force outside of those already in the group/mob (self policing). If we catch the mood SOON and direct it accordingly I feel we will avoid the prospect of growing rage and the growing likelihood for conflict. The lack of media at this time is a good thing as those who are most likely to be caught on camera are the angry rage filled anarchist profile. We can organise and moderate imo. At least we should try and if you have a better idea than the above, it's time to make that known.
You are welcome to share this (cut and paste) as needed without attribution.

This movement has local members throughout Ontario and is leading the way for social and economic reforms. If you have never heard of names like Jacque Fresco, The Venus Project. (TVP), The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM), this is a must read.

This is some serious information to consider if you haven't already. Over-reaction? You decide.

We have a number of projects being discussed. Members interested in the following should contact Vic Jasin
city planning model software
audio digitizing (audiobooks)
help on coding for a social enterprise applicaton. Project (only those who can commit to a sizeable block of coding)
All the above are intended to have SENVI community volunteer inputs and revenues will be SENVI trust capital (which all collective members own). Those are suggestions.
Any member with a project or existing commercial enterprise which can use help should contact Vic Jasin. We will get the expertise you need within SENVI and voluntarily (pro bono) whenever possible. I will find those interested in doing what is needed.
Those who are free to provide a service please let me know. Those who commercially offer services, let me know. Those NEEDING services let me know. Those who have read this message, let me know.

I am up to 25 members called/contacted by phone. I hope to do 2/day but at least one. The average call duration so far is around 90+ minutes with some over 3hrs. Good talks and it seems most folks are ready for that kind of connection.
You can't help but find ideas just meeting people of the caliber and talent we have here. If ALL of you make it your SENVI goal to at least to ahve talked by phone with EVERY member once/year that would be a good ideal/goal. I realise that may not be realistic for some, but I'm putting a goal out there for others to consider.
The public knowledge trust in SENVI is special and will become more special over time in terms of it's relevance and significance in actions that bring positive change into our future. This is already an elite group. Don't oversell SENVI. This is quality and talent with the right attitude and the right intentions to make them SENVI community.
You are an elite group my friends and I'm proud to say I know you all and I can only feel stronger and better about that as I speak with you all. Personally this group seems like the right combination at the right time. My plan is to create SENVI as a mark of distinction in some humble regard but authoritatively professional on the outside and casual and small town/family on the inside. That's the goal "I" have.
I would love to hear all others ideas, projects and ambitions. We will find a way to improve or activate your ideas to their successful place. I plan to write about my calls. There are many modest folks in this group who others would benefit from simply knowing them and their story. Everyone here is SPECIAL in some way as per my reason for inviting you. This is a post and not email because I understand how too much data turns to junk and is a wast of time if not used and presented the way best suited for it's population. Good folks, good ideas and good intentions and good actions. Good place to be.

Giving all members administrative security clearance does not mean you are expected to start taking on admin responsibilities. You have FULL access to all I do, and whether you use it, or have others produce things on your behalf, is a personal choice. If you have content you want on and want help doing it then ask me and I'll help myself or find someone who will.
Please, don't let you not having time or a comfort for using site features keep you from asking for help and simply asking questions on how to use what we have as it pertains to your personal circumstances.
I record my outgoing calls by default as well as all Skype calls. The purpose of recording calls is for historical reasons, reference (now you can do searches on audio), and even fully accessible to members to listen to. Consider if you would like to have conversations of yours, or others available to other members to listen to. Call content is the property of the members recorded and I will go on record here as saying I waive all my rights to any recordings with my voice and/or image on it in favour of the other party on the audio/video if and when such things are done.
I do NOT speak on behalf of SENVI. No ONE does, but we ALL do.
I will refrain from making statements in the future about SENVI except to report facts, actions and/or events. Opinion, if and when expressed, is my own.
I expect it to take about 90 days (2 more months) to get up to speed on optimally using features, and get everyone plugged into a support group of interested community volunteers. I (Vic Jasin) will do that.
Wait for your call if you don't have a clue on how to proceed OR better yet YOU call me if you need to, and without hesitation. I welcome all calls and not as a duty, but as a joy and pleasure of meeting you folks and helping solve your problems in trying to solve others problems.
If you could have your own DREAM TEAM to work with, who would they be (anyone living on this planet at this time), for what purpose and when? Let me know and I'll help you get them in SENVI as your center for collaboration of your DREAM TEAM. I can't guarantee we will get everyone you suggest, but I will surely try my best.
519 657-4286 (any time after 3pm and no later than 3am, GMT-5hrs a.k.a. EST)

As you may have noticed the site has been getting slower. I have been using Word for my posts everywhere as have others. Well anywhere it has be pasted (word code) that app or page will slow down.
Until we find a solution please only paste from notepad. Use your processor to compose and spellcheck but paste the spell checked document into notedpad then copy the contents in notepad into whatever you need to put text into on the site. Nothing should have input direct from word processor other than Microsoft NOTEPAD or other simple processors (saving in txt format from Word and other processors still leaves code that interferes with site function.
I suggest the speed will be up by tomorrow first thing, at the latest. Bear with us, the site is designed to run MUCH faster.

Debt relief and new spending two key areas to consider manipulating.
None of this is a formal theory or formula and as such each element can be changed or eliminated as needed. The following is a suggested starting point for discussion with the idea that what is proposed is within the realm of not only possibility but probability of happening. Take each on its own to discuss this as the entire issue is too broad to cover in a thread on Facebook. This will be a part of SENVI forum information. We will be discussing these issues there and will be making some serious suggestions and making sure those who can do something with it, get it and/or join our community.
That’s nuts can be your first response but after you ponder it and are ready to ask questions, please do. Answering questions will result in revisions that make sense. Consider both sides of opposing ideas and arguments and then come up with a third choice that considers the other two but is not simply the sum of the other two. Synergy from synthesis, by accommodating contradiction and scepticism. That is the goal of this note as well as to stimulate reaction and hopefully subsequent action of a positive and progressive nature.
Elimination of all interest related debt. Principal only. Profit in lending is eliminated. All debt that exists that has an interest component should be adjusted.
Spending is essential. Public spending on infrastructure at local and regional levels.
Spending on innovation, education, infrastructure and financial equalisation for the unemployed.
Estate divestiture plans where as the owner of capital whether it be in estate form or personal or corporate investment form will not automatically be passed on to designated beneficiaries, but rather to the collective ownership of the region or community.
Where the money comes from for public spending is not simply from taxation but also from injecting more cash into the system (The Fed). International values of currencies should be fixed no market manipulation on the basis of currency demands for trade.
Immediate change toward sustainability, quality, and responsibility in resource management. Profit is not in the formula for assessing priority and need.
Encourage those to find automation to replace themselves. Incentive in that is you get similar or equal pay as before during your life time as a reward for replacing yourself.
Innovation becomes the priority after balancing of basic conditions related to food, health and housing. If you need something to make a discovery and it’s available and it will help humanity then why is money getting in the way? Because our society has made rules that allow for that to happen not because it wouldn’t work any other way.
Price and wage controls would be in place to compensate for cost of living increases (a.k.a. inflation). With controls on both prices and wages we can prevent any possible runaway inflation. Canada has already used price and wage controls as have other countries.
As the need to redistribute income to the technologically unemployed growing numbers approaches the point where managing and maintaining such a mechanism creates more work and complexity, it becomes an ever increasing beuaracracy whose entire purpose is managing the redistribution of currency. Absurd. Those who remain employed can do so voluntarily and have other volunteers substitute for them if needed. That condition is closer to the 2050 time period in my humble opinion. All other related conditions approaching "zero money needed" condition will happen gradually in various ways before then.
There will no doubt be fallout from such drastic measures. Some of these ideas exist within the Zeitgeist movement, The Venus Project, Transfinancial Economics and Resource based economics. If you think this is utopian, pick a POINT and explain why and we can discuss it. This is a serious discussion. Those who want to mock or ridicule will be deleted. No apologies for “editing” civility. It’s called moderation and it is part of how SENVI works.
I hope this starts a discussion or an argument or something, because complacency would be the scariest part. Not because I wrote it and want a response, because the issue is more than you or I or any one personality. This is a social issue affecting us all. SENVI is invitation only. If you know a member ask them about it and get them to invite you. SENVI is a private closed community of innovators and benevolent and responsible activists and those who support them. If you have something to offer the community please let us know about it. It is an action community not a social network and is not open to the public.
Start your own SENVI and or group. Webs.com offers free web sites. Anyone can organise positive action or better yet, join others when possible as collaboration will be our salvation in all this turmoil.

Why join SENVI?
For members who are reading this, you are welcome to cut and paste this. A link back (url), won't work as this blog is member accessible only.
If you have been invited it was for a reason. The reason is someone thought you had qualities that would complement the community.
As a member the SENVI host (at this time Vic Jasin), will get to know more about each member personally and find out where and how we can be of assistance. What are you interested in sharing or doing for the community? No questionnaires.
We may have celebrities from time to time, but we are private because we are a functional site not a fraternity recruiting for membership. That means we are here for the members. For it to be more than just an idea it will take interaction. SENVI will initiate the interaction and seek to learn where and when we could be of assistance as a community with varied knowledge resources. We can open up as much of this site in whatever way the members choose. There is no set plan.
The initial communication is intended to be a simple and easy way to introduce yourself through a SENVI admin (Vic Jasin) to facilitate introductions and cross discipline sharing. Once SENVI knows it's membership its membership can get to know each other in the simplest path of least resistance method geared to personal need.
You have a team of problem solvers available. You have an ability to use and affect all the major social networks in a safe private community. As a community designed as a collective, no one person has advantage over another.
Our featured members are as a community should be. The leadership in innovation in various fields are those whose lives and purpose is to find answers for our future. We work to support them. Their success is the success SENVI seeks. We win when any of our members win but in particular the work of the featured members.
This translates differently for each member. There is no monetary value to what we do. It's priceless. What is having access to the most innovative minds on the planet worth?
The goal is to make this place as much like a small town community personality as possible. It might be that SENVI could potentially build a town and we could become physical neighbours some day.
Until then we are neighbours in a virtual reality, and in our thoughts and feelings toward one another. SENVI is a refuge not an additional complexity. When you can see it this way, you will have the vision I have for SENVI as its founder.

I have been around to a number of well known philanthropic sites. I have seen many social entrepreneurial sites. And I have seen many NGO sites that are of a humanitarian mission.
One thing that I know is not the same on other places is Vic Jasin. I am your host, not your boss, not your president, not even the owner of the place even though I am. When my enthusiasm and passion for this idea dies down it will be time to replace me. And if Aubrey and Randal have anything to do with it, that could be a long time.
This site will have personality. No policies, rules and dogma. The only RULEs are those that make sense administratively and which the collective membership are in agreement. No politics, no religion, no philosophy BEYOND a dream and ambition for a moneyless society by its founder. That will always be part of the personality of SENVI as long as I'm around.
I want to balance SENVI. We need engineers, chemists, administrators, scientists, economists, academics etc etc. The 10 categories are MY idea of the thought that needs to go into planning for the future. Within those categories we need expertise. Within those categories we need to derive some relevance for a real world model that uses the latest information available to its members.
MY goal and hopefully the communities goal, is to create a sense of cohesion and pride of group over any one self. The synergism of talented experts is our best hope for ideas and solutions for our future. At least that is how I feel in my passionate crusade to form such a knowledge trust.
I hope to get to know each member personally. That is MY best way to serve this community as it's host and founder. Introductions and finding common links in the obscurity of personal detail are my goal. To invite talent that the community wants to join us and make no apologies for wanting a certain standard in the profiles for the community. The profiles of people in SENVI are the profiles of those who will be leading change into the future. That is my goal and dream for SENVI.
