Holacracy Governance Meeting

Fifth Liturgical Season

The fifth Liturgical Season runs from the summer solstice to mid summer (approximately August 4th) and covers the rise of intelligence. What are the major advances during this period. Warm blooded-ness, social interaction, tool use, language?

Here is Eric's draft of the opening ceremony for the Weekly Service Calls during this season:

Instinct ... still ... instinct ...
And then ... <gasp> ... a spark!
Amidst the growing diversity of SolSeed, a new attribute emerges,
In the lush green forests, minds are born.
And for every mind ... there is a story!
So many stories...
Our stories begin with warm blood, endothermy,
The constancy that lets delicate brain cells flower!
Next comes society, groups living together.
Both a shaper of behaviour
and the environment in
which behaviour can be taught.
Then comes tool use!
The sharp teeth and claws we needn't grow.
The hands with which we reach for the stars!
Finally, humans begin to speak!
Turning knowledge into a shareable resource,
freely available to all learning children.
Warm blood. Society. Tools. Speech.
From instinct ... a spark!

Discussion

Ben: Just a few small suggestions for the fifth season: Can we vary the word choice of “In the lush green forests, species are born,” which you’ve now used three times? Can we say “The sharp teeth and claws we needn’t grow,” to make it clearer? Are we reasonably sure that tool use came before language? Can we choose a slightly different word than “commodity,” which sounds too much like economics jargon? (I really love the “freely available to all learning children” part.)
