Proposing a Manifestation with Iterative Local Circle Inclusion and Highest-Level Engagement

1. Proposal Initiation:

  • Local Fractal Circle:
    • Emma proposes the idea of organizing a public manifestation for the organization to raise awareness and advocate for the organization’s core values.
    • Members express enthusiasm for the proposal during the local circle meeting.

2. Local Circle Discussion:

  • Ideas and Enthusiastic Support:
    • Discussions in the local circle involve ideas such as organizing peaceful marches, distributing informational materials, and inviting guest speakers.
    • The enthusiasm is high, and most members express support for the manifestation idea.

3. Summary and Trustee Selection:

  • Local Trustee Meeting:
    • A summary of the manifestation ideas is created, and a local representative, Emma, is chosen to present these ideas in the intermediate circle.

4. Intermediate Circle Discussion:

  • Trustee Presentation:
    • Emma joins the intermediate circle and presents the manifestation proposal, emphasizing the enthusiasm and strong support from the local circle.
    • Representatives from other local circles contribute additional ideas, such as utilizing social media, collaborating with local influencers, and incorporating artistic elements.

5. Voting and Consensus (Intermediate circle):

  • Voting on the proposal does not reach majority:
    • As the intermediate circle fails to reach a majority consensus, representatives recognize the need for further input.
    • Representatives call for input from their respective local circles to understand concerns, gather additional ideas, and address the lack of majority support.

6. Collaborative Refinement (Local Circles):

  • Iterative Discussions:
    • Representatives engage in iterative discussions with their local circles, incorporating feedback and refining the manifestation proposal.
    • This iterative process aims to address concerns and garner broader local circle support.

7. Voting and Consensus (Local Circles):

  • Local Circle Decision-Making:
    • Local circles hold internal discussions and voting to gauge their support for the refined manifestation proposal.
    • The goal is to ensure that the local circles reach a majority consensus before reconsidering the proposal at the intermediate level.

8. Iterative Discussions (Intermediate Circle):

  • Incorporating Local Circle Input:
    • Representatives reconvene in the intermediate circle, sharing the input and decisions from their local circles.
    • Discussions continue, iterating on the proposal with the aim of reaching a majority consensus at the intermediate level.

9. Voting and Consensus (Intermediate Circle – Final Round):

  • Final Decision-Making:
    • Representatives reconvene in the intermediate circle for a final round of voting.
    • The refined manifestation proposal, now incorporating iterative local circle input, is presented for consensus-building.

10. Presentation and Discussions (Highest-Level Circle):

  • Presenting the idea to the highest circle:
    • Representatives at the highest level engage in iterative discussions, considering the refined manifestation proposal and providing input.
    • The goal is to align the proposal with the overall mission and values of the entire organization.
    • Possible further local iterative discussion continues until majority consensus is achieved.

11. Voting and Consensus (Highest-Level Circle):

  • Final Decision-Making (Highest Level):
    • The refined manifestation proposal is presented for a final round of voting at the highest level.
    • The highest-level representatives reach a consensus, ensuring alignment with the organization’s collective vision.

12. Project Deployment:

  • Task Delegation:
    • Tasks related to organizing the manifestation are delegated down the fractal layers.
    • Each local circle takes responsibility for specific aspects, such as logistics, promotion, and outreach.

13. Successful Manifestation:

  • Collaborative Execution:
    • The manifestation is successfully organized, featuring elements from the initial proposal and incorporating the collaborative refinements.
    • Members from all local circles actively participate, ensuring a diverse and impactful event.

This method ensures that the whole organization is actively engaged in the decision-making process. By calling for input, engaging in iterative discussions, and reaching a consensus at the highest level, the dynamic fractal organization maximizes inclusivity and unity in decision-making. The final manifestation reflects the collective vision of the entire organization, fostering a sense of shared purpose and engagement.

Facilitating Communication

Encouraging Regular Local Circle Meetings and Facilitating Communication Across Representatives

1. Establishing Regular Local Circle Meetings:

  • Encourage Ownership:
    • Emphasize the importance of local circles in shaping the organization’s direction.
    • Encourage members to take ownership of their local circles and the impact they can have.
  • Define Clear Objectives:
    • Clearly articulate the objectives and benefits of local circle meetings.

    • Foster a culture where representatives feel comfortable seeking advice and collaborating.

6. Feedback Mechanisms:

  • Continuous Improvement:
    • Establish feedback mechanisms for both local circles and representatives.
    • Regularly seek input on meeting formats, content, and overall communication strategies.
  • Adaptability:
    • Be open to adapting meeting structures based on feedback.
    • Flexibility ensures that the approach remains effective and responsive to the needs of the organization.

By implementing these strategies, the organization can create a dynamic and inclusive environment that encourages active participation in local circle meetings and effective communication among representatives. This approach promotes collaboration, accommodates diverse schedules and time zones, and strengthens the overall cohesion of the dynamic fractal organization.

CONSENSUS IS NOT ACHIEVED

What would happen if a local circle does not like the idea of making a logo at all and it does not reach majority?

If the local circle does not reach a majority consensus on the idea of creating a logo, several outcomes can occur within the dynamic fractal organization:

  1. Respect for Local Autonomy:
    • The principle of individual and local sovereignty is respected within the fractal organization. If a local circle opposes the idea, the organization acknowledges and respects their decision.
  2. Autonomous Decision-Making:
    • As each circle operates autonomously, the local circle that opposes the logo idea can decide not to participate in the logo creation project. The dynamic fractal structure allows circles to opt-out of initiatives they do not support.
  3. Diversity of Perspectives:
    • The organization values diversity of thought and opinion. The fact that not every local circle agrees on every idea demonstrates the decentralized and inclusive nature of the fractal structure.
  4. Adaptability and Flexibility:
    • The fractal organization is designed to be adaptable and flexible. If a logo is not universally accepted, the organization can explore alternative ways to represent its identity or focus on initiatives that do receive widespread support.
  5. Project Iteration or Modification:
    • Instead of abandoning the idea altogether, the organization may choose to iterate on the concept or modify it based on feedback. Local circles may be open to reconsidering the proposal with adjustments.
  6. Creative Alternatives:
    • The rejection of the logo idea in one local circle does not prevent other circles from proposing creative alternatives or symbols that resonate with their values. The organization can encourage diverse expressions of identity.
  7. Decision Records and Transparency:
    • The rejection of the logo idea is documented in decision records, promoting transparency. This documentation ensures that the reasons behind the decision are clear and can be revisited if needed in the future.
  8. Focus on Common Ground:
    • The organization can refocus on areas where there is consensus and common ground. While the logo idea may not have gained approval in one circle, there may be other initiatives or projects that unite all circles.

In summary, the rejection of the logo idea by a local circle does not lead to a breakdown in the dynamic fractal organization. Instead, it showcases the organization’s commitment to respecting local autonomy, embracing diverse perspectives, and maintaining adaptability in decision-making processes. The fractal structure allows for variations in opinions and priorities among different circles while fostering a collaborative and inclusive environment.

Making proposal to the fractal

Example of Suggestion Process: Creating a Logo for organization

1. Proposal Initiation:

  • Local Fractal Circle:
    • Alice, a member of the local fractal circle, proposes the idea of creating a logo for the organization during a circle meeting.
    • She emphasizes the importance of a symbol that represents unity and freedom.

2. Local Circle Discussion:

  • Ideas and Opinions:
    • Other members in the local circle share their thoughts on the logo.
    • Bob suggests incorporating global elements to represent the organization’s worldwide reach.
    • Carol proposes using vibrant colors to convey energy and enthusiasm.

3. Summary and Trustee Selection:

  • Local Trustee Meeting:
    • The local circle compiles a summary of their logo ideas and selects a trustee, Alice, to represent them in the next higher-level circle.

4. Intermediate Circle Discussion:

  • Trustee Presentation:
    • Alice joins the intermediate circle and presents the local circle’s logo ideas.
    • Representatives from other local circles contribute additional suggestions, such as using symbols of liberty and diversity.

5. Voting and Consensus:

  • Decision-Making Process:
    • The intermediate circle engages in a democratic voting process to decide on the key elements of the logo.
    • A majority agrees on incorporating global symbols, vibrant colors, and liberty-related symbols.

6. Summary for Higher-Level Circle:

  • Summary and Trustee Selection:
    • A summary of the logo elements is created, and a representative is chosen to present these ideas in the highest-level circle.

7. Highest-Level Circle Discussion:

  • Trustee Presentation:
    • The representative, chosen from the intermediate circle, presents the finalized logo elements to the highest-level circle.
    • Further refinement suggestions are discussed, such as the specific shapes and arrangement of elements.

8. Voting and Consensus:

  • Final Decision-Making:
    • The highest-level circle engages in a final voting process to solidify the logo design.
    • A majority consensus is reached on the specific design elements.

9. Project Deployment:

  • Task Delegation:
    • Tasks related to designing the logo are delegated down the fractal layers.
    • Each local circle takes responsibility for specific aspects of the project, such as design, color selection, and symbolism.

10. Collaborative Design Process:

  • Iterative Feedback:
    • Local circles collaborate on the design, providing iterative feedback to ensure the logo aligns with the organization’s values.
    • Online platforms or meetings facilitate seamless communication between circles.

11. Final Design Approval:

  • Circle Consensus:
    • The final design is presented to all fractal circles for approval.
    • A majority of circles must agree on the design for it to be accepted.

12. Distribution of Emblems:

  • Implementing the Logo:
    • Once the design is approved, emblems with the finalized logo are distributed to all members.
    • The organization now proudly displays the emblem, symbolizing unity and freedom.

Through this example, the process showcases how a suggestion for a logo starts at the local level, undergoes discussions and refinements at intermediate and higher levels, and is ultimately deployed with the consensus of the entire fractal organization. The dynamic and inclusive nature of the fractal structure ensures that diverse ideas contribute to the creation of a meaningful symbol for the organization.

CONSENSUS IS NOT ACHIEVED

Transforming a traditional organization

Let’s walk through a hypothetical transformation of an organization from a traditional board of directors structure to a dynamic fractal organization.

1. Initiating the Transformation:

  • Individual Initiative:
    • A passionate member, let’s call her Alice, identifies the need for a more inclusive and participatory decision-making process within the organization.
    • Alice starts by calling for a meeting or gathering of interested members to discuss the idea of implementing a dynamic fractal structure.

2. Formation of Initial Circles:

  • Local Circle Formation:
    • During the meeting, participants express interest in the concept, and local circles are formed, each consisting of around six to eight members.
    • Each local circle discusses the future of the organization and compiles a summary of their ideas.

3. Selecting Representatives:

  • Trustee Selection:
    • Local circles democratically select a representative or trustee to join a higher-level circle. Let’s say six local trustees are chosen.

4. Creation of Higher-Level Circles:

  • Connecting Local Circles:
    • The six local trustees form a new circle, collectively summarizing the ideas from their respective local circles.
    • This process repeats, creating a hierarchy of circles where representatives from each level join to form a higher-level circle.

5. Discussion and Decision-Making:

  • Idea Exchange:
    • In each circle, discussions take place regarding the organization’s goals, actions, and projects.
    • Trustees have the opportunity to access members from their local circles for follow-up questions, ensuring clarity and depth in the proposed ideas.

6. Voting and Consensus Building:

  • Democratic Voting:
    • Each circle engages in a democratic voting process to decide on proposals.
    • The process emphasizes consensus-building, allowing members to express their opinions and concerns.

7. Information Flow:

  • Summary Sharing:
    • After each circle meeting, a new summary is created, and a representative is chosen to join the next higher-level circle.
    • This ensures that information flows seamlessly through the fractal structure, creating a network of interconnected circles.

8. Scaling Up:

  • Adding More Circles:
    • As the organization grows, new members can initiate local circles, and the process repeats, maintaining an optimal group size.
    • The fractal structure is scalable, allowing the organization to expand without losing the benefits of small, efficient circles.

9. Project Deployment:

  • Delegating Tasks:
    • Once decisions are made, tasks are broken down into smaller parts and delegated down the layers.
    • Trustees oversee task delegation within their circles, ensuring progress and accountability.

10. Maintaining Sovereignty:

  • Individual Autonomy:
    • Members maintain their sovereignty by choosing to participate and support decisions made at higher levels.
    • Circles also have the autonomy to act independently if collaboration with other circles is not desired.

11. Corruption Resistance:

  • Regular Restructuring:
    • The dynamic design of the fractal structure prevents centralization of power.
    • Regular restructuring ensures that influential individuals do not consolidate power over time.

12. Adapting to New Projects:

  • Flexible Structure:
    • When a new project or issue arises, the fractal structure takes a new shape, allowing for specialized working groups to form.
    • The organization remains adaptable and resistant to corruption.

13. Feedback and Improvement:

  • Continuous Improvement:
    • Members regularly provide feedback, enabling the organization to adapt and improve the fractal structure over time.
    • This iterative process ensures the ongoing effectiveness of the dynamic fractal organization.

Through this transformation, the organization evolves from a traditional board of directors model into a dynamic fractal organization, promoting inclusivity, transparency, and effective decision-making at all levels.

Decentralized video Conferance

We are proud to pressent Fractal Meet.

Fractal meet is the video conference tool that enables your organization or group to find common goals without any leaders.

The platform uses the fractal circles method to automatically create a number of “break out rooms” in several layers.

It works with any video conference tool but is optimized for jitsi meet. The installation is as easy as drag and drop. It can be totally self-hosted and will also be available online on FractalCircles.org.

Fractal meet also has integrated protocols that store all information in between meetings. The result from the fractal meetings will be a hierarchy of trusted people and a summary of proposals organized after importance.

From this summary, new work groups and new fractal meetings can be created to further the group’s aims.

The app is available on all platforms soon. Test the platform demo!

Fractal Democracy – the voice of the people

It is happening. Everywhere I look I see new interesting initiatives in all areas of life. Whether it is to create ecological buildings, regenerative agriculture, natural bee farming, holistic medicine, or collaborations of free information. It is all out there wherever I look and it brings me great joy.

In times of great struggle, people are forced to question their old habits and assumptions. To cast away what is not serving us and venture for new solutions. Slowly we are waking up and opening up our eyes, washing away the sleepiness that has been fogging out minds for so long.

The old world is crumbling in front of us, but still so many cling to a distant dream of a good and easy life and with vague hopes of ample rewards. Most of us have still not breached the barrier and are stuck in the make-believe reality of the modern control society, working on its last gear to push forward its futile plan of world domination.

I predict a coming clash of beliefs where the old meets the new in a head to head confrontation. This is the next phase, and this will determine the future of generations to come. Now we need to step up to the challenge and do the one thing that the world has been crying out for since the birth of man. To unite all men and women in a global alliance for peace and freedom.

This is a crash course in military strategy, as we are in a war of thought that needs to be won by outsmarting the manipulators in their own game. Some see it, and many do not. The master plan is a plan of smokes and mirrors. Giving us false hopes, leading people away from each other, and into false doctrines.

But we do not need to fall in their traps and we do not need to answer to their false calls. We need not worry about what is true or false in a world of never-ending lies and false news bombarding us not only from the media but also from insurgents placed in all positions imaginable. We have a plan and with the guidance of higher powers we will succeed.

This is my lesson of life and the grand strategy: First: Assume that every and all people you will ever see is an infiltrator with the sole purpose to lead you astray. This is all people, with no exception. Secondly: Act as if every person you meet is your friend and join them in a common venture for world peace and harmony. This will instantly take away the effect of the evil dialectic tactics of divide and conquer and take away their greatest weapon in a flick of an eye.

But listen carefully. We shall never fall for the trick to follow anyone. Be it government and politicians or charismatic individuals and non-governmental organizations, as this is the way of the old. We shall join their causes as long as they sound good on the surface, but we shall not accept their roadmaps, which certainly will lead us back where we started, if not by design, then by dark plots of corruption and blackmail.

This is what we will do: We will organize ourselves wherever we are and whatever we do. Organize in a natural way that creates a network of networks outside of any old organizational structure. We will connect together, we the people, and create a unity that will bridge everything and interconnect everyone. This holy union will open up even the darkest plot and transform it into a vehicle of our liberation.

We will join together in a fractal system of organization. The only way that organic life actually organize itself in nature. Not from the top of the pyramid and down, but rather from the roots and up. Starting by creating a small circle of 6 people each we then connect 6 circles into a cluster, we connect 6 clusters to a supercluster. And so goes the story on until the earth is aligned and we can with a common voice take over all the structures that we are a part of and use them to create our dreams.

We will use the force of the enemy against themselves and pretend not to see their lies. Using their false promises to further our own agenda, to use their resources, and recruit their members for our own purpose. The plan is set and the clock is ticking. The divine plan has a set time. On the 22 of February, in the year 2022 we will join in an epic celebration of life. On that day we will join together on the streets worldwide and we will declare the opening of the world fractal democracy.

This will create what the elite always wanted to do, but with no strings attached. Their plan is our plan, but with the people as the leaders, we will create full transparency in all governmental activities and be the new global policymaker that will bring us into the future.

So step up and listen to your heart. You are the start of this. You are the seed that will give power to the growth of our moment. This is my calling for you. All men and women of age. Your time has come and you know what to do. Find your circle and share your dream. Prepare for the day to come. And on that day you will know what to do. This is the chance of a lifetime. Now it is up to you.

Introduction to fractal circles

Crowd resource mining and decision-making with fractal structures

A dynamic fractal organization is a system for crowd-based information gathering, decision making, and project management. It is a way of organizing and creating group decisions that optimize efficiency and where all members are involved in the decision-making process. The system is designed to pick up the best ideas from the larger group and bring forth the most trusted people to assist and oversee the process of making the ideas become reality. With this type of structure, we can redefine the way to co-operate and create fast and efficient actions in larger organizations, corporations as well as in spontaneous groups. It can be used as a complement to current systems and eventually replace them.

One major feature of fractals is their self-similarity, meaning smaller pieces of similar attributes within the larger whole. The individual parts are working together for the common outcome. They display interdependence, relying on each other while remaining at low complexity. Fractal systems are easy to scale up to any size. In nature, fractals are everywhere to be found. In flowers and trees and in living organisms like the nervous system or immune system. This type of fractal system can be applied to a community, economy or even a society. Research shows that if you measure the efficiency of varying group sizes, the optimal group size appears to be five to seven people. In this size group there is a high level of combined knowledge and at the same time a low complexity. Adding additional members will not greatly improve the total amount of knowledge. However, additional members will significantly increase group management problems where group psychology opens up possibilities for narcissists to take control of the group.

To create a fractal organization you divide the larger group into smaller groups of five to seven people. All groups discuss and vote on a common topic and choose one person whom they trust within their group to represent their findings to the larger network. All the representatives are then again divided into small groups and the process continues until all circles are joined together and the best ideas and the most trusted people are structured in a fractal system. This organization can then act quickly in the same manner as a traditional hierarchy but with the advantage that they have good information as well as trusted representatives on all levels. This type of structure can quickly be created over and over again for each new project and will in that way be dynamic without a fixed core of power that can be corrupted over time.
