The Creation and Protection of Wealth in the 21st Century is predicated on Innovation. The creative spark of immortal innovation is essential to survive and to thrive in The Great Unwind near the speed of light! The following are some brief thoughts on the necessity for innovation. They are divided into Ten Innovations:

Innovation I - Socratic Method
Innovation II - Character
Innovation III - Focus and Genesis
Innovation IV - Characteristics
Innovation V - Recognition
Innovation VI - Survival
Innovation VII - Metamorphosis
Innovation VIII - Golden Age
Innovation IX - Infinite Intelligence
Innovation X - ONE

Innovation I - Socratic Method

. What is Socratic Dialogue? http://ow.ly/63By

. What we now call the "Socratic method" of philosophical inquiry involved questioning people by Socrates on the positions they asserted and working them through further questions into seemingly inevitable contradictions, thus proving to them that their original assertion had fatal inconsistencies. Socrates refers to this "Socratic method" as Elenchus. The Socratic method gave rise to Dialectic, the idea that truth needs to be approached by modifying one's position through questionings and exposures to contrary ideas.

Innovation II - Character

. The true creator is necessity, who is the mother of our invention! - Plato, Disciple of Socrates

. This above all: to thine own self be true! And it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man. There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. - Shakespeare, Hamlet

. Humans grow by experience if they meet life honestly and courageously! If their premise for existence is denial, how can character be built?

. Universe isn't random it doesn't do anything without purpose! It's easy, observing events from a skewed perspective, not to fathom the plan!

. Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one! - Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor

Innovation III - Focus and Genesis

. Innovation comes from courageous creativity - a deep recognition that change is not a problem - Creator alone is eternal, perpetual and immortal!

. Life joins millions of moments, one new moment at a time! As we begin to focus on each new moment we begin to modify our lives!

. Synchronicity manifests as Serendipity in each Moment: Perfection unfolding in Perfect time! Are we ready to accept its Gifts?

. Genesis of Innovation: First problem is not to learn, but to unlearn! This begins with listening, absorbing what others want, and loving it!

. Keep thoughts positive, thoughts make words, words make behaviours, behaviours make habits, habits make values, values make destiny! - Gandhi

. Innovation is based on constant new learning and unlearning! However, it's impossible to learn new things when we think we already know all!

. Subtle energies, intentionality and consciousness offer scientific basis for understanding human energy system and its subtle, interface levels.

. Innovation can't be premised on adopting a way of life that existed 100 years ago! As the world changes fast, we must innovate in lock-step!

. Case for Innovation: Not sure whether things will get better if we start to change; but surely we must change if they are to get any better!

. I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be! - Douglas Adams, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Innovation IV - Characteristics

. Simple: 3 kinds of players in organisations - innovators, operators, undertakers! To create 1st type, to survive 2nd type, to die 3rd type!

. Innovation is the key hallmark of entrepreneurship: renewed capacity for wealth creation is based on budding innovations of entrepreneurs!

. In our experience, innovation is not the product of linear or logical thought, in fact, the reverse is true! Innovators are total mavericks!

. As a man is, so he sees. As the eye is formed, such are its powers! - Blake

. If your organisation is to be an innovation leader, identify mavericks, promote them! Those seeking to conserve traditions are undertakers!

. Comfort zones should be banned! They are anti-innovation! When we are comfortable in an environment, we must change it. Results follow!

. Quidvis Recte Factum Quamvis Humile Praeclarum! Whatever is rightly done, however humble, is noble! A personal story http://ow.ly/6OqF

. What kills innovation? The standard reply from organisation's players, 'We have always done it this way!' If so, well, 'It's probably wrong!'

. Very clear humility comes from right action!

. What links creative destruction to innovation? Forcing organisations at any moment to sacrifice what they are for what they can become! Wow!

Innovation V - Recognition

. The truth: as from a fire 1,000s of sparks come forth, even so from the Creator an infinity of beings have life and to him return. - Cicero

. In the beginning, innovation is whimsical, innovation is elitist and out of the box. Until it becomes a need for the general public that is!

. Why we love America? Failure's not condemned it's applauded. Grand vision is welcomed. Innovation is constant. All frontiers open to reach!

. Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression! - Isaac Bashevis, Nobel Laureate

. If we cannot find the joyful truth right where we are at with this spirit-mind-body, where else do we long to find it and why?

Innovation VI - Survival

. Secret of health for mind and body isn't to mourn the past, not to worry about future, but to live in the moment wisely, earnestly! - Buddha

. You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength! Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor

. There is a simple way out of any scenario: Hyperinflation, Deflation, Muddle Through or Quadrillion Play. That way? Innovate your way out!

. When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions. - Shakespeare, Hamlet

. In crisis, there's opportunity and danger! Innovators can inherit the Earth, while the know-it-alls die trapped in a world that doesn't exist!

. Neither a borrower nor a lender be; For loan oft loses both itself and friend, and borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry. - Shakespeare, Hamlet

. In The Great Unwind innovation is no longer optional, it's a necessity! Those who don't like to change are going to be rendered irrelevant!

. It is not strong Corporates, NGOs and Govs that will survive The Great Unwind, nor most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change!

Innovation VII - Metamorphosis

. Everything that happens in our life shows Synchronicity! Those Showers are a vehicle for our Evolution and Metamorphosis! http://ow.ly/5xxW

. Age of Narcissism is slowly, surely coming to end as trans-national deep crises cut the model of 'me-first and me-last'! http://ow.ly/70Tp

. Global Reset has synchronicity, severity, speed and scale that are historically unprecedented, result is a shift in collective consciousness!

. Evolution from an ego-centric self-gratification vision of the world towards collective-thinking plus community betterment and survival is upon us!

. Elimination of the arrogant I and SHORT TERM gain model of globalisation, capitalism towards the humbler WE and 'long term sustainability'!

. The Noosphere's - Sphere of human thought's - role is vast in helping to eliminate 'manipulations, errors and omissions'! http://ow.ly/70Ys

. The Metamorphosis of Narcissism (Selfishness) towards Golden Age of greater good with self-lessness is bound to prevail in the midst of crises.

Innovation VIII - Golden Age

. As The Great Unwind propels us towards an era based on non-linear thinking and sustainability, we are moving towards a Golden Age! No choice!

. Innovation is to achieve a wisdom based global economy collectively whilst envisaging and engineering the Golden Age of Non-Linear and Circular (Re)Design:

. Zero waste and energy efficiency on the one hand and the Omega point of spiritual and digital connectivity on the other!

. In the Credit Crunch, there's much to look forward to, manifest as a change in priorities and values, as long as we continue to come together to innovate!

. Original think piece on Golden Age: Knowing What is Enough! From The Inter-Net to The Inner-Net http://ow.ly/7w40

Innovation IX - Infinite Intelligence

. The world wide web is a bubble chamber of the whole "Consciousness" all in interplay in real time or indeed in ~infinity~!

. Synchronicity Showers - Singularity Signs? http://ow.ly/5yrv Burden of Proof, Synchronicity and Applications http://ow.ly/5yrA

. Is love misunderstood to be an emotion? Is it a state of consciousness? A way of being in this world, witnessing ALL as ONE sans judgement!

. Sincere humans make Love-of-One life's endeavour, emitting that sincerity: those who think and live One touch the intuition of All others!

. The most intelligent is the ONE who witnesses ALL without judgement! The entire world is ONE family! Holistic Quantum Relativity: http://ow.ly/69So

Innovation X - ONE

. ONE Creator.Name Truth.Sole Doer.Fears None.Without Hate.Never Dies.Beyond Birth-Death.Self-illuminated.Realised by Master's Grace.Ever True! - Mula Mantra (Root Chant)
