You And Hierarchy
Its the hierarchy real or imagined?
Do you want a place in the hierarchy or not?
Whose hierarchy is it?
What is your purpose regarding the hierarchy?
Why do so many questions regarding hierarchy go unanswered?
How can there appear to be hierarchy everywhere if there is none there at all?
What else is possible than playing in the hierarchy?
By now, most Edgeworkers have developed a healthy distaste for anything hierarchical. But with so few alternative options to choose from, almost everything becomes suspect. Our nervous scanning searches for any evidence that there could exist some kind of hidden hierarchy even in the roundest flattest teams and projects. The problem, of course, is that, often there is.
Which hierarchies are you unconsciously supporting?
Which hierarchies have you unconsciously built yourself?
How is it possible to escape from even the most monstrous hierarchies?
How can you personally get out and help to build out a more beautiful world that your heart knows is possible?
Matrix Code THEHIERA.01
The purpose of this experiment is for you to notice how often you are engaging in the hierarchy without even knowing it.
For 3 days, to avoid participating in any and every hierarchical interaction regardless if the hierarchy is formal or informal, written or unwritten
For example, if you are working at a job in a company, and the job is a gameworld based on a written hierarchy, and you are probably not at the top, therefore, how can you do this experiment if you are going to the work?
The answer is to constantly hold yourself outside of the hierarchy, what this means is having a metaconversation about the resources that you can bring in as an employee because you are functioning today outside of the hierarchy. For you, this may mean not being adaptive or playing small, staying quiet, not objecting, etc. Since you are working in the company and refusing to participate, start to look at every single person at the eye level.
Another example, during these 3 days, there will be people trying to play lower than you in the hierarchy. For example, a bagger in the street, the lady at the cash registrar, or the grocery store. Or maybe people play a high status than you such as your mother, the police, a neighbor, a guard, or this man passing in the street.
Remember this experiment is not participating in any hierarchy either higher than you or lower than you. In each case make a connection with the person as there is no hierarchy. While you are doing this experiment for 3 days, write down in your beep book every hierarchy you notice that is in your life
After avoiding for this 3 day all kinds of hierarchy please put Matrix Code THEHIERA.01 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. In the proof of the experiment list the least and most power hierarchies that you avoid. This Experiment is worth 3 Matrix Points.
Matrix Code THEHIERA.02
Start this experiment by drawing in your Beep!Book a picture of the world
with a triangle on the top of it and your name at the very top of the triangle.
If your name is John, then title this map as John'hierarchy. After this, for the next three days, wear any specific clothes to signify that you are at the top of this hierarchy.
This could be shod with sparkles on them or a cape on your shoulders. Or a crown on your head with a star on it. And include in your look a scepter. This scepter could be a hammer or a wooden spoon, or those rubber plunger things from the toilet.
After assembling your look, you just star walk everywhere with that. When you see people in these three days, any person you see, you bow to them, lightly, and then you touch them on the head with your scepter and you say, "Welcome to John's Hierarchy."
You can say something like: "Today there is no tax that you must pay", and then as "What can you do for the hierarchy today?"
If people act confused or offended, you can explain that all the life you have been participating in other people's hierarchies. And for the next three days, you decided to make your own global hierarchy with you at the top. Tell to the person: "you are lucky enough to be in the presence of the oligarch or monarch."
And then repeat: "What can you do for the hierarchy today?"
NOTE: This may sound ridiculous, however, the hierarchy is the behavior of many people in the world. People at the top of most hierarchical gameworlds act as if they have ownership of everyone in the rest of their gameworld, for example, in university, administrators, corporate managers, military, the doctors at the hospital, priests at the church, etc.
During this experiment tell people you are practicing how to behave at the top of a hierarchy just in case you get promoted someday.
Take during these three days a few selfie photographs of you blessing your slaves with your scepter and post them on social media. Explaining that you're doing a queen of the hierarchy experiment.
After posting the photos in your social media please put Matrix Code THEHIERA.02 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. In the proof, please put the link of the photos. This Experiment is worth 3 Matrix Points.
Matrix Code THEHIERA.03
That experiment is to you send out three letters of complaint. One to the mayor of your village, one to the CEO of a corporation and one is to top manager of a green organization NGO.
The letter will be the same, except to the names who you address it.
This letter is to make a proposal to them. The proposal is to change the structure of the game, of that particular gameworld, from a hierarchy to a circle, to touros.
And you write that because the hierarchy is inefficient and so much human potential is being wasted every day, even though the hierarchy is paying full price for the people to work there.
So give examples of wasted potential and give the basic steps for changing from a hierarchy structure to a circle. And then asked to meet with the person personally to answer further questions and demonstrate a circular meeting for them, for free.
After sending the three letters and possibly having the three meetings write an article about your experiment and include what you were hoping. This experiment could accomplish. That's in the article.
Then put the article, the link to the article in the proof section and please put Matrix Code THEHIERA.03 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiment is worth 3 Matrix Points.
Matrix Code THEHIERA.04
This experiment is to bring your Possibility team together and ask for 45 minutes to explain and implement a new kind of meeting technology that you just invented: It's called a multidimensional hierarchy net.
After that, you write it on a flip chart where each person in the meeting is at the top of a hierarchy and everyone else is at the top of their hierarchy, and
everyone else is inside or part of everyone else's hierarchy. The the diagram will look something like a fishnet. Everybody's name will be at one of the dots, but the hierarchy will go out and to connect with all the other hierarchies.
What is required for this meeting is a Spaceholder and will not have any hierarchy in this meeting. You will just have a Spaceholder.
During this meeting, you need to make three group decisions, about three projects, in each project requires creating new solutions to a problem. Your meeting is about deciding how you'll do that, how you will do this 3 projects. The job is for each person to be the king or queen of their own hierarchy, they own everybody else's resources.
The Spaceholder says beep every time somebody does not play as King or Queen on their hierarchy, for example, if someone play lower or play not responsible or they pretend don't have everybody's resources.
The Spaceholder writes the three projects for this multidimensional hierarchical meeting and also the three strategies, gameplans.
In the end of the meeting each person gets a copy of what the Spaceholder wrote. The space holder puts the write up as an article and puts the link for the article. Whoever was in the meeting can put the link for that article.
After this meeting please put Matrix Code THEHIERA.04 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiment is worth 2 Matrix Points.
Matrix Code THEHIERA.05
This experiment starts with you wearing a striped shirt, like a prison shirt, like black and white stripes or maybe a hoodie or an orange shirt, an orange jumpsuit or something. It looks like you escaped a prison and you, you wear this for a week.
Furthermore, you will make a little passport for yourself. You take a piece of cardboard and fold it in half, and in the front of it it says "Hierarchy: escape certificate". In the inside you can stick a picture if you have one, or just draw a little picture and put your name and the date. And then you write: "this passport certifies that John Smith has escaped all hierarchies."
And so you walk into a restaurant and you say: "I need to work in the kitchen for a while. I can help peel the onions or I can help wash dishes, or chop carrots".
If they look like confused you can say: " I would like to eat in your restaurant", and then you show your passaport to them and add "Here it says, I have escaped from all hierarchies and it doesn't work for mejust wait for it, I need to be with them cooking the food a little bit."
Do the same thing at a grocery store. You walk into grocery stores and say: "I need to help put some products on the shelf. I need to unpack some boxes or sweep the floor".
Or if you're going into get your car fixed, "I need to sweep the floor or greet the customer for you, answer the phone." You keep showing your passport that says you have escaped from all hierarchies. If you're going to a class, go to the teacher and you say, "I need to help you" And start correct some tests, or to erase the board or need to put your notes together better"
And so, you're doing this for a week and keep showing people, even who don't even ask to show them, your passport.
And if someone asks you, 'who gave you authority, who's the authority behind your passport?' You say, "I've been looking all over nd I could not find any authority to grant me permission to leave all hierarchies. So I took that authority myself and realize that I am an authority strong enough to let me exit all hierarchies."
During your experiment, take a selfie of yourself sweeping the floor or helping in the kitchen or doing whatever job that you're doing outside of the hierarchy. Then put the link in the proof session and please put Matrix Code THEHIERA.05 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiment is worth 3 Matrix Points.
Matrix Code THEHIERA.06
This is experiment it about you express your gratitude towards people participating in hierarchies for your benefit. For the next seven days, each and every person you can speak to you, you will say: "I express my gratitude
that you participate in the hierarchy of... in my benefit." So even in the moment you are not using their hierarchy.
For example: You are walking in the shopping zone and the shoe salesman is smoking a cigarette or having a coffee outside. Then you say to the shoe salesman: "I express my gratitude that you participate in the shoe shop hierarchy for my benefit." And then you just keep going.
So you will see a lot of people during this days. Somebody walking out of the mayor's office and you can tell them this phrase, or taxi driver, or a teacher with some children, the the town gardener, or the police officer.
You do it for an one week, so it will be like 20 or 30 times a day that you tell the different people. You just express your gratitude for them participating in a hierarchy. For your potential benefit that you could interact with their hierarchy.
Also write the short letter to some organization that you are affiliated with,
for example, Derek's Green, Deep green resistance, Organization of PachaMama or 350 or Allen Savory Institute, or any organization you participating in, including the tax office of the government. So you choose three.
Then you write this short letter, like an email or email letter of appreciation. In the proof you write the name of three organizations that you sent your letter to. Please put Matrix Code THEHIERA.06 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiment is worth 3 Matrix Points.
Matrix Code THEHIERA.07
This experiment is about you announce and hold space for a meeting that is at least one and a half hours long with at least 15 participants for the purpose of Unleashing Group the Group Intelligence in a circular meeting
Before the meeting, study the contents of the Torus Technology website
and answer people's questions as they might arise.
The assertion of the meeting is that participants have been struggling to against hidden hierarchies to. Bring out the projects that they truly wish to create. And that in this space, there are no hidden hierarchies.
There is a Spaceholder, which is you, and everyone else in a circle. Navigating this meeting will be like cooking a pot of popcorn. At first, it seems like nothing is happening, but as the freedom is built the heat will rise and first one person and then another will pop open and start showing up bigger soon.
More people will pop open and show up bigger, and by the end of the meeting you'll have a full pot of popcorn.
Then take a photograph of people celebrating the group. That they popped open like popcorn and publish that photograph and put a link to it as a proof. Please put Matrix Code THEHIERA.07 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiment is worth 3 Matrix Points.
