United Air Ways

If you happen to speak with me, sometimes you will hear more silence than words. You may find it a little awkward if you don’t know me, specially on the phone. It doesn’t mean I get bored or I don’t know what to say. Don’t bother! My moments of silence, sometimes my with eyes closed, happen because I breathe. Indeed, I have decided to follow two principles: breathe before speaking, speak only with permission. Breathe before speaking Taking the time of a long breathing before speaking allows me to engage in a quest for words and answers that the...

Above the law?

    In my humanonaut journey, some of the places where I go may look quite odd from the eyes of the conventional world. Food, vow of wealth, gift economy, amorality, love, stepping out of the classical economic and social circuits… Sometimes people ask me if I see myself standing above the law. This question inspired this present article, the seed of a further thinking in the future…         When minor contradicts major I will start with an ontological distinction in regards to law. One single word —law— exists to name two different concepts, first, the universal...

Integral Wealth

This page gathers two talks I gave during Centifolia in 2011 and 2013. Both of them explain in detail the meaning and consequences of Beauty, Goodness, Truth, and integral wealth, and how it can lay the foundation of our future economy.   This first conference “Beauty, Goodness & Truth, a Path to the Perfect Product” explains the founding role of these 3 primary values in our ontological structures, and how they will become founding leverages for organizations that want to evolve towards integral wealth and transcultural models (that transcend and overcome cultural walls, while integrating diversity).   This second...

Perfumed questions

Revolution Slider Error: Slider with alias perfumed_questions not found. Maybe you mean: 'Mainslider_28' or 'home' or 'classicslider1' or 'media-gallery-two7' or 'news' Centifolia 2013, “The Riches of a Product”, focuses on radical innovation. It feels quite normal that people from this sector ask questions sourced from their paradigm, and wait for responses intended to match this same paradigm. Hence my attempt to address a list of corporate questions sent by some leaders, and to answer from the new paradigm. A somehow perilous exercise that creates lots of shortcuts if we want to stick to short answers. Don’t hesitate, dear reader,...

Nipun Mehta, a gift for the world

Nipun Mehta appears as one of the most inspiring persons I have ever met. A few years ago, he and I met as guest speakers in a conference on the gift economy in California. I shared some ideas about collective intelligence and the coming of free currencies as a possible infrastructure for global generosity at a massive scale. Nipun came from direct grassroot practice of generosity and giftivism operating through wide networks of people. He had tons of inspiring stories to share, each of them seeding generosity in our hearts. Small communities and trust networks rely on gift economy. In these human...
