Verse Vendor

Dream type: Transformation

So I'm walking along, "Oh, look at how sunny California is," I think. I go into my local coffee shop for a date with this woman & "OMG!" There's a vending machine for poetry. I guess I have 3 bucks on my credit card. Cool, it'll totally impress this woman. Oh and I can pick from Bruce Sterling, Al Young (former poet laureate of California) & a bunch of people I don't know. It comes with a piece of gum. Awesome. Sold. It even printed it on newsprint for me. Wow. Wouldn't that be cool: to support our artists!

A Calling of Humanity

Dream type: Transformation

December 25th 2020. I’m 33 today and filled with hope and gratitude. Project Evolve which started in California is now worldwide. The Golden State inspired the world through arts/entertainment and now leads us into the Golden Age. Project Evolve tapped into the shift in the human consciousness and created an interactive website. Connecting local citizens with common goals/interests to better their communities. We believed it would take technology and heart to bring harmony back to earth. It soon manifested into "Evolve" events/contests with workshops and research projects. Project Evolve has become a calling for all humanity to work together.

Companies Without Borders

Dream type: Transformation

Wouldn't it be incredible if the meaning of corporate social responsibility (CSR) expanded to include the creation of NGOs seeded by corporations which deploy doctors to heal their outlying communities and send trainers to outlying schools to teach more about what their companies do and how they do it? These organizations would create pathways of health and education and work with foundations for research. It means that corporations invest in a trust so that this money grows apart and these programs are sustainable, enough that it provides social services that many feel cannot be sustained by state government alone.

Festival of the Future

Dream type: Transformation

The start of 2011 sees California embark on an ambitious PR campaign to re-brand itself in effort to boldly go where no state has gone before, declaring the coming Decade of the Future and claiming the title, State of the Future. The zeitgeist-defining move catalyzes the popular imagination with an unprecedented solidarity and a singular vision of unity: a healthy, creative and prosperous future for CA, the nation, and humanity. The centerpiece: Festival of the Future - an annual celebration capturing the spirit of a New Future Age, one driven by foresight, innovation, sustainable solutions and proactive synergies.

onechange

Dream type: Transformation

I imagine this one person is going to work he heads his car but than he thinks, I will ride my bike to work. Than his friend that lives next door and says to the man ''what are you doing?'' asked the friend he says I am riding my bike to work. His friend says '' I think I will too!''. Then the whole city is changing there ways. Just because one made that thought and rode his bike to work instead of his car. So one choice can change a lot of choices you make.

The New Argonauts

Dream type: Growth

On the way to work this morning, I run over a pothole. Momentarily annoyed, I take solace in knowing that simultaneously my car tagged its GPS location into the open source city database. Halfway through my day, I remember that I need to renew my drivers license so I log onto my personalized iCali government page and flip a gchat to Annie over at the DMV. At night, I fall asleep astounded that only six years ago government relied on forms and phones for those services and proud that Californians are leading the world towards the new society.

The Open Source School

Dream type: Transformation

Before heading to the lab I search online for TOSSers, the approximately 11.3 million refugees of K-12 schools and ivory towers/strip malls who form The Open Source learning network ("no idea excluded/no individual standardized"). Diagnostic fractals of the TOSS knowledge base look like an expanding coral reef Dr. Seuss drew with his toes. If you can find a guide to take you on, collaborate on a Purposeful Goal, and ask you the right Question(s), you're in. Welcome to the search for big ideas among every person, experience and document in existence. California is now a state of mind.

Catalyst Cohousing Movement 2019

Dream type: Transformation

We completed our 40 unit cohousing complex in East Palo Alto last year. We built here because we could afford it and contribute to this community. The idea was to create cohousing that catalyzed positive things in the community, helped us achieve self-sufficiency, and served as a homeschool for our children. As such, all of the services offered cohousers is open to the community - the laundry, school, garden, tool library, carshare & more. The community has embraced us even though we're minorities. And it's great to be part of a network of 1,550 similar projects in California.

Lifelong University of California. Meet needs in a rich experience!

Dream type: Transformation

My father resented the wealthy for their mobility, breadth of opportunity and network. I’m a mobile, skilled student worker. I check the local 'need feed', taking lead if I have experience and otherwise learn from others. The solution database guides teams and adopts our breakthroughs. Universities were expensive and detached. Why learn one discipline, when I can follow my interests month to month? I learn with others through action and skilled peers help me enact my ideas. I may work near dad next week, and work with friends in LA after.Life is a continuum of experience and results.

Schools Overthrown by Online Homeschooling

Dream type: Transformation

I'm a mother of two, living in the Bay Area in 2018. Like most other people I know, I've pulled my kids out of the failing school system. It was an obvious choice when I saw how many interactive, self-directed learning resources are out there now, free with the standard Internet connection that follows us everywhere. My kids love learning again, because they get to pick what's relevant to them and go at their own pace. The world is our classroom, and we find friends wherever we go. Much better than sitting in a backwards school box all day.
