This first page of the Social Wellness blog is dedicated to my inspiring friend and husband Jai who’s soul purpose is the development and distribution of a communication tool that anchors higher consciousness. His goal is to raise the IQ of our social networks to ‘SOULcial’ intelligence so we are better equipped to communicate as global citizens, crossing the divide of racial and tribal differences with community building interplays that create Win/Win situations for all. Wanna play as a Global Citizen?
What’s “Social Intelligence” ?
“In defining social intelligence we’re talking about a general category: The human capacity to understand what’s happening in the world and responding to that understanding in a personally and socially effective manner. We have to confine our definition of social intelligence so we’re not including within it all positive human attributes, making it a kind of definitional panacea. And our definition of social intelligence has to include such a person as Socrates, a man who ended his life as a condemned criminal but who achieved timeless success through passing on his understanding of what intelligence is–the recognition of one’s own ignorance and faithful dedication to one’s principles…” (Hermes Press)
Playing as a SOCIAL and SOULcial LEARNING TOOL
- The ancient Leila Game (predecessor to Shoots and Ladders) taught people to take the ups and downs of life in stride. Sooner or later you would have a chance at winning if you were a good sport playing along. It backed up the teachings of Fatalism and the Cast systems, for the good and the bad…
- The medieval Chess Game (predecessor to Military Games) taught people to calculate and strategize. You had a chance at controlling your destiny if your mind was superior to your opponents mind and it didn’t bother you to have a your good soldiers and pawns killed off. It backed up the Teachings of Dualism and Feudalisme.
- Last century’s Game of Monopoly (predecessor to Wall Street Games) was created initially by a Quaker woman to teach people how to brake out of poverty and have a chance to make somthing of themselves. But helas, she was a hundred years ahead of her time and Monopoli was snagged away from her and sold to a big gaming company that changed it to teach people capitalism. You had a chance to win one over the other players if you were good at snagging things away from them, cheating for good reasons. It backed up the era of Materialism and Individualization.
- This century’s Social Networking Games (predecessor to Globalization Games) teach people their interconnectedness in the great web of life. Jai and I started to create our Game almost 30 years ago to be ready for this time when our chance to win in the global picture only comes with creating win/win situations for all players. The GAME is backing up the planetary prophecies and teachings of collaborative inter-action within the human species because it is time for our evolution from bird brain to human brain. Wanna play?
