SAFE G: Empowering Resilient Communities


Mission. To empower local communities to design immediate and effective SAFE G solutions that implement optical fiber wired to the home and office. Local taxpayers and ratepayers are entitled to this alternative to wireless, because they have already paid for it. Please see: Irregulators v. FCC.

5G/AI/Internet of Things Juggernaut presents an imminent threat. The harms to our community’s physical and mental health, the local environment, violations of citizen’s rights to due process, property, and personal privacy are foreseeable and preventable. The threat is especially dangerous to our children, elderly people, those with special sensitivities, disabled persons with chronic illnesses, caregivers, and our economically disadvantaged and minority communities that have no escape in their homes or workplaces.

Remedy: Community Empowerment: An effective remedy begins with widespread education and training in a proven system of wise leadership, community organization, team building, and negotiation. With this purpose we have created a 5G Dojo to support local communities around the world that are facing similar challenges. The key is to share negotiation successes and practical experience, so these lessons can be immediately deployed within the network. Equally essential is to fortify community-wide resilience rapidly and effectively. (See: 5 Minutes toResilience)

Just as Laughing Heart can be a step-down transformer, so also it can become a step-up transformer, increasing the creative voltage of everything it touches.

Move # 6—Connecting Laughing Heart with Everything by the Explorers Wheel

(click above title to go to Laughing Heart website Move)

Just as Laughing Heart can be a step-down transformer as explained in Moves # 3 and # 5, so also it can become a step-up transformer, increasing the creative voltage of everything it touches. A playful way to build this connecting power of Laughing Heart and resilience is the Explorers Wheel. You can test the Explorers Wheel simply by writing an important question or idea inside the enso, the connecting image at the center of the Wheel, and then explore your question from the vantage of any of the eight (8) moons. (You are developing a kind of human/octopus awareness!) An excellent question in this context might be: How most powerfully to build my resilience? You may be especially drawn at first to some of the moons as opposed to others. Let your intuition be your guide. You then start exploring the relationship of several of the moons to your question simultaneously. As explained in the audio, the Explorers Wheel will naturally guide you to the “innovators gold” which can be found in the “intertidal realms” at the points of convergence of some or all of these 8 moons.

The Explorers Wheel not only helps you build inner connections, it also guides you to discover new connections in the external world through love, kindness, and wisdom. One study reporting on the resilience and trauma notes “kind human touch with those we trust has positive effects, both psychically and physically. Even brief contact can boost oxytocin levels in the brain, which can enhance the sense of optimism, trust, and self-esteem. There are health benefits, too. When oxytocin levels are stable or elevated, this can reduce blood pressure, improve digestion, decrease intestinal inflammation, and reduce anxiety.” Developing resilience is both an inner and outer processes of connecting. But connecting to what? An answer to this question will become even more evident in Moves # 7.

  1. The Explorers Wheel invites us to challenge a number of preconceptions.
    The first is that we necessarily lose cognitive resilience with aging. But the following link belies this premise.

    The second is that genius is necessarily an individual and solitary phenomenon. But even in the Renaissance this may not have been so. Many great artists like Leonardo da Vinci had botega where their students collaborated with the master to produce works of sublime genius. Roger Malina, the editor of MIT’s Leonardo Magazine, offers the fascinating observation that increasingly today genius will become a collective phenomenon involving diverse talents from many fields and disciplines.

    The Explorers Wheel and the Integral Resilience Codex are fertile ground to create a common language and to support collaboration among all talented age groups.
