The Giver: a film for card-carrying polychromes

My card as of today:

4phasecard dark blue 04 10 15

Last night we watched The Giver (see the trailer here: https://youtu.be/uxFJvlWqphM), about a society which had traded colour and true feelings for safety and sameness – and a boy and his mentor (the Giver) who gave them it all back. It’s the kind of movie that can give you an altered state and change your perceptions of the world, and therefore your conceptions. I thought, the world is a different place to the one who sees the colours of the creative process, which is going on all around us but our fear and negativity and resignation blind us to it and we think everything is the same, nothing can really change or be improved, nothing is so great that it justifies the suffering of life…

As Zarathustra says to the prophet of the great weariness, ‘There ARE still Blessed Isles!’ I look forward to helping myself and others to go there – and stay!

Phasetimers with two levels – free graphic within!

034

This is my latest (04 10 15 ) Phasetimer prototype (white frame because shop had no black), with an inner band for timing shorter cycles of four phases – fifteen minutes to go through a cycle, or 3.75 minutes per phase. This is for quick processing a question – also can be used to go through four cycles in an hour…iterations are of course all part of process and evolution.

For the ‘early adopters, should there be any here (you know who you are!) here is a free jpeg of the timer face, for printing out (on say 200gsm card) and glue-sticking to the face of a wall clock of your choice, so you can experiment with the timed 4phase method… The text around the edge gives you the basic idea of what you do in each phase. Alway start with phase 1 – though you can decide to be in a certain phase overall, then go through the cycle within that phase – ( as this two-level layout portrays, process is fractal). All I ask is, email me with ANY feedback you like (peter@eutopia.co.nz)… Thanks, and enjoy the process! And click ‘follow’  on this blog so you get updates on the method and also the tools and literature… (Note 06 10 15: I changed the order of the layers – I think it looks better… I’ve added latest picture below this one:

Use either one – let me know which you prefer… or any suggestions…
