Highest Good Society and Emotional Sustainability
Emotional sustainability, holistic living, and conscious exploration of more fulfilling education, recreation, and social architecture models are key elements of our open source project-launch blueprinting to create sustainability for the complete human experience and demonstrate living for The Highest Good of All. In short, this means demonstrating a model of living that is specifically supportive of the growth and enrichment of each individual with the intent to invite people to visit, share in the experience, and globally collaborate on evolving it. It is a society model built for everyone, maximally adaptable so people can apply it in the ways that work best for them, and a component of One Community that we consider essential to forwarding a global movement of self-propagating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities demonstrating a more enriching way of life and comprised of happier people.
This page outlines the emotional sustainability and social architecture components built into the One Community sustainable sustainability model and open source project-launch blueprinting of a society we feel will exemplify living and creating for The Highest Good of All.
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY OPEN SOURCE PORTAL
Once One Community arrives on the property we will be launching a model of living and social interaction that we believe most people will consider more fulfilling, enriching, and fun. As part of our open source project-launch blueprinting to create self-sufficient and self-propagating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities around the world living, creating, and sharing for The Highest Good of All, we will be sharing the details, learning experiences, celebrations, evolutions, and all information necessary for duplication including:
- All details of daily living
- Internal decision making and organization process
- Implementing diversity as an engine of global change
- Establish and maintaining a resource based economy
- The community contribution model that replaces traditional jobs
- All details of One Community business financial function and maintenance
- Establishing and maintaining a culture of personal growth and development
- Establishment, licensing, maintenance, and evolution of the Education for Life Program
- Objective data on community collective and individual time utilization and allocation
- Details on how our sponsorship program for new members works and evolves
SOCIAL ARCHITECTURE FOUNDATIONS
Components One Community believes are foundational to emotional sustainability and a social architecture of celebration and fulfilled living and creating for The Highest Good of All include group dining and other daily group activities, a unique education and childcare program, government by consensus, morning and evening centering classes like yoga, tai chi, and meditation, daily classes where people get to share what they love most and learn from others doing the same, and group entertainment (music, dancing, story telling, movie night, board games, etc.). To make all this possible, the social architecture is built directly into the operation and maintenance of the living experience and fulfilled by everyone’s participation in the community contribution model. More specifically, 35 hours for each person is dedicated to everything that keeps One Community functioning and fulfilling our purpose of continually designing, demonstrating, and open source project-launch blueprinting everything people need to build self-sufficient and self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities all over the world. There are also 5 hours for each person contributed to support an enriching culture of personal growth, recreation, and socialization.
SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY AND SOCIAL ARCHITECTURE
We believe organizing time like this and prioritizing these things is important because it maintains accountability to each other and to ourselves to live a balanced life that supports happier, more effective, more creative, and more productive people. With everything we are creating it could be easy to forget that a social, recreational, and emotionally and psychologically enriching environment for growth is an essential part of our sustainability model for the complete human experience and what we are sharing. For this reason, we continually address deciding what would make our environment even more enriching, what do we want to learn from our fellow community members, and what can we teach and share with each other and the world.
SOCIAL ARCHITECTURE ORGANIZATION AND STRUCTURE
The starting Pioneer Group is limited to roughly forty people and this creates a pool of 200 hours of weekly social/recreational contribution (see the Time Allocation Projections Page for details on time allocation). For something to qualify as social contribution, it needs to be available to the entire community (and the public once we are hosting) with at least 5% of the community (2 additional people of 40 in this case) expressing interest and committed to participate. If less than 5% of the community participates for 2 events in any one period of monitoring, the activity ceases to be an option and is replaced by something different. Events times are organized by the host with the structure of the model requiring participation for continued event existence, keeping both the host and the participants accountable for the maintenance of activities.
Activities that count as social contribution include: classes of any kind, exercise, meditation, spiritual or any other open gathering, reading groups, game groups, music and entertainment of any kind, and anything else open to the participation of the entire community with 5% or more people consistently involved.
Participation in all aspects of the social model is voluntary and ideas for new activities, changes to activities, and the social structure as a whole are discussed and evolved through the consensus process. Activities are posted so everyone knows what is available and sign-in sheets are used to monitor attendance. Changes are made by the host and any activity that has been removed from the schedule due to non-participation can be re-added with a commitment of at least 10% of the community to participate. If a social activity is cancelled due to non-attendance, the host either gathers support and hosts a new activity or uses the available hours to help where it is needed in the community. The same applies if a person chooses not to contribute to the social contribution structure; unused hours are filled with other community contribution aspects of the individual’s choosing.
