Thanks Michel!
This is also taking shape through the various Assemblies and Chambers of
the Commons emerging around the world. I'm reminded of Levy's thoughts on
the shift from collective intelligence
<> to collective wisdom...

Collective intelligence solves problems or resolves conflicts of, by and
> for a group, an organization, a community or a whole society. It solve
> those problems and conflicts for the here and now, for people who are
> interested, aware, and involved. Collective wisdom, on the other hand, has
> a bigger challenge. It needs to expand out from the particular problem or
> conflict, from the here and now, from those interested, aware and involved.
> It needs to embrace larger contexts, interests, drivers and possibilities.
> It has to consider the deep needs of people long gone and yet unborn, and
> to delve into deeper levels of understanding and caring. It ventures into
> unseen dimensions of life - into background trends, hidden corruptions and
> connections, psychospiritual influences, scientific microcosms and
> macrocosms - to realize unexpected consequences, novel resources, and
> extraordinarily potent answers. Being the Big Picture form of intelligence,
> wisdom is born out of our capacity to stretch creatively into the unknown
> and the unacknowledged, into the new angle, the deeper parts of ourselves,
> the fringe insights and possibilities.
