Mike ZeidlerOn July 22nd 2016, we put on the UK’s second ‘Art of Cosmic Thinking’ event, building on feedback from the debut in Manchester back in May. The word cosmic comes from the word cosmos, meaning ‘the universe as a complex and orderly system’ and the talk explored how to hold the tension between keeping things simple and keeping things real. Having stimulated minds with this introduction, we created an Open Space for everyone there to explore their own ideas. Click here to see what went on.

Mike Zeidler When things go wrong and people are angry, the natural tendency is to look for someone or something to blame. We hold a public inquiry to make sure we know who’s fault it was, why it went wrong, and to make sure it never happens again. The anger is stoked into a blaze of blame which gets so hot we step back from our own responsibilities. Instead of looking at ourselves, we glare at the unfortunates tied to the stake while opportunities for useful learning get incinerated.

Our own public inquiry distilled into two questions – who now? and what could be different? To see what we found, read the full article here.
Mike Zeidler The EU Referendum COULD have been a fascinating, engaging, participative and educational debate about the relationships of people across Europe. So far, the political debate has been a two dimensional, shallow and emotive competition between two different kinds of fear. So how can we choose if we're feeling under informed, overwhelmed by complexity or simply angry at the poverty of leadership? I think it's a question of personal and collective courage.

Mike ZeidlerInspired by a great TED talk called 'Inside the mind of a master procrastinator' by Tim Urban, I've drafted a TED talk of my own. With the working title 'The Art of Cosmic Thinking', my talk uses sort-of-art to explore super-connective networking and order in chaos. The first dress rehearsal will be at Revolution in Fallowfield, Manchester on Sunday 15th May. Please arrive at 5.45pm for a 6pm start.
Mike ZeidlerOnce the votes are all in around the country today, we should take stock of what brought us here.
