picture picture 5 Jan 2011 @ 00:20, by Heiner Benking

I just had a call about my BLOG on Dropping Knowledge years ago by a collegue, as we both attended the presentation of the film PROBLEMA - 'problema' from Latin problema (genitive problematis) 'problem', 'puzzle', 'enigma', 'question proposed for solution', from Ancient Greek πρόβλημα - in the Volksbühne a month ago.

No time now, so I refered to earlier enties in these BLOG entries from 4 years ago !!!: PART I. and PART II.
Please see also the UIA press-release I distributed before I asked questions in the opening Press Conference of he DK event, maybe see also: this document. - but who was reading then or still does carefully and deep nowadays??

A film by Ralf Schmerberg, and the call was regarding a story for a web-site called ONE SIDED for their first article in 2011 : EINSEITIG e-Zine.

lots of thoughts came up: (need to really work on this)
* so much envisaged and hoped for - so litte achieved
* so many great people - so much insights - so little outcome and valid material to work from - even after years and years of wait after years of preparation and efforts !!
* how do we get from collections or questions and answers to shared action towards desirable goals, dare and achieve what matters and help us reach Mount PEACE and Mount HARMONY & AWARENESS !?
* how do we overcome media- marketing- advertisement glitter and emotional captivation and come to real and shared action for not just a few.... or just to follow the media hype ...?

I think I will have to work on this some time, soo much is already there but we tend to reinvent wheels, compete, and cultivate our egos in sweet isolation..

meanwhile please check: Dropping Knowledge, the Living Library concept, and Problema:

Maybe I am too critical comparing the work done in teh UIA over decades with the results of the DK effort, which promised a lot and only could achieve step 1 of a whole dance promised. But it definitely would have some merits to check out the database of social inventions/GLOBAL IDEAS BANK: [link] or the EDGE World Question Center !!: [link]
