Like instances of it's essential component, Cooperation, examples of Collaboration abound.
Ranging in scope, from simple to complex, collaboration empowers Humans to achieve the otherwise impossible.
From entertainment to the practical application of knowledge via intuition and fundamental research.
Collaboration has built Society, and is without question, the only sustainable future.
A bright future in which we all can play a role in ensuring collaboration is all embracing and ubiquitous.
Grasping the how and why collaboration works will support and maintain this important role.
We touch on that understanding here, where we also introduce examples of collaboration.
The co-authors of Organizing Genius, Warren Bennis and Patricia Ward Biederman relate the gripping, warts and all, intricate tale of breathing life into the legendary Disney collaboration, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Organizing Genius is one excellent book that delves into this phenomenon of collaboration.
Narrating in the same gripping vein they go on to detail diverse examples of Humans collaborating across a wide spectrum of activities. Digging deep into the psyche, and character, of real participants in what they term “Great Groups” the authors seek to understand, and convey to the reader, the underlying mechanism of just what it is that allows collaboration to succeed.
Concluding that collaboration is not for everyone.
The authors conclusion is quite understandable. One must develop a definite mindset to be a collaborator.
Beneath the seductive glitz of most promising products, lurks a potential to destroy itself. Courtesy of our refusal to work with Nature and put aside the false ego.
Collaboration is a purposeful act. Once this fact is fully grasped we can then become an integral element of a collaborative effort that is compatible with our innate talents, abilities, and thinking capacity.
Again and again.
Organizing Genius, is an important book that leaves one in no doubt that as successful as Humanity has been at collaboration, we still, as individuals, have much to appreciate and learn.
It is in this Capacity as an Individual that great groups are made. Or not.
From the impressions of the passive observer, great groups are seemingly ephemeral. Wafting into, and out of existence. As if on the whim of an indulgent benefactor.
Perhaps this may be. But familiarity with the Laws of Personal Development calls this view into question. Boldly suggesting we have much more influence over a creative project than we currently believe.
The musical duette, Simon and Garfunkel is a well known instance of two people collaborating and creating something of enduring value that could not happen otherwise.
Though Art Garfunkel wrote poetry, to my knowledge he never wrote a song. But without his cooperation and collaboration, Paul Simon's beautiful lyrics and melodies would take on a different hue entirely. Musically speaking.
Coming to grips with complex collaboration requires deeper knowledge.
Apprehension of the Mechanics of the Human mind helps one to fathom the infinitely powerful Tool that Collaboration is. A tool at the disposal of all who would employ it.
We Humans are on the most exciting, stimulating, and positive threshold of awareness Human consciousness has so far met with. Along with practicing Personal Development, studying examples of collaboration help us to gain this understanding of our own mind.
The Large Hadron Collider - LHC - is a Particle - constituents of Atoms - accelerator capable of reaching velocities just short of the speed of Light. And, as the name indicates, facilitates the collision of particles, such as the Hadron, at this extraordinary rate of motion.
A stirling example of collaboration, involving around one hundred Countries, this Big Bang replicator is at the cutting edge of Fundamental Scientific Research.
The LHC is the most massive and expensive Scientific Instrument ever built. Enabling inquiring minds to penetrate deep into Nature's secrets.
This Machine allows scientists to be privy to the initial seconds - but not the absolute beginning - of the Big Bang. Where the Elementary Particles that make up the Universe and everything it contains, were formed.
The absolute beginning of Space-time was Pure Energy. As we have learned courtesy of Albert Einstein and his Relativity Theory, energy and matter are interchangeable.
If Energy had not been transformed into Matter then nothing physical would exist, including Humans.
Scientists at CERN, proprietors of the LHC, are now joyfully endeavoring to deduce what constitutes energy and how conversion into matter actually takes place.
First imagining, via intuition and empirical means, then gradually discovering, tracing, tracking and observing fundamental particles and their function.
One such sought-after particle is the Higgs
Boson. For many years it was believed the Higg Boson imparted mass to everything in the physical Universe.
More than a half a century after it was first mooted, the prosecution of this particle recently climaxed in the confirmation of it's
existence (July 2012) via experimentally creating mini Big Bangs in the LHC.
Physicists, Belgian Francois Englert, and Englishman Peter Higgs, shared the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics
for formulating the Original Ttheory behind the discovery. Both men freely
admitting the efforts of many others involved in this inspiring quest.
Fascinating activities utilizing fascinating equipment. Produced by fascinating thoughts, generated by request of the Human Mind.
Elucidating insights into the Large Hadron Collider and this enchanting example of collaboration that will explain the fabric of the Universe, and in due course, where we came from, can be found here for the Machine.
What would Pierre Teilhard de Chardin have given to access this machine?
The true pinnacle of examples of collaboration will be to substantiate and actualize the stupendous potential our World, and seven billion Minds, offers to collectively create and share a paradise of peace, prosperity, and harmony. In an outstanding climate of encouragement, tolerance, goodwill and compassion.
Can we do it? Yes, I believe so.
This will happen when Personal Development becomes common knowledge. In the same manner that the earth revolves around the Sun is now common knowledge.
Acquiring an in-depth comprehension of Cooperation and Collaboration, and the power it endows to the Human mind are but two tools we can gain from this philosophy of mind expansion.
These tools can be employed to play an influential role determining a future worthy of our title, Homo Sapiens.
