7:00 AM – 10:00 AM: Stopping Planetary Overheating with Solar Radiation Management
Professor Guy McPherson and Dr. Ye Tao of Harvard join Jamen Shively and colleagues in leading a two hour discussion about how to take SRM (Solar Radiation Management) from concept to full-scale planetary implementation in order to stop and reverse planetary overheating in time to save life on Earth.
Jamen, Guy, and Ye filmed the video immediately below to promote the conversation had above.
10:00 AM – 11:00 AM: Open Discussion
11:00 AM – 2:30 PM: Redefining Our Relationship with the Animal Kingdom
Does the whole world need to go vegan or is livestock-based Holistic Land Management the answer? Allan Savory and Sailesh Rao share their perspectives and listen to those of others. You can watch Savory’s popular TedTalk here and learn more about Rao and his organization Climate Healers here.
Below is the precursor to the above conversation, filmed on February 13th.
2:30 PM – 5:00 PM: Mythos – Co-creating a New Story for Humanity
What stories do we tell ourselves and each other about who we are, why we are here, and where we are going? How do these stories effect our society at large? What aspects of our primary driving stories need changing? We ask these questions and more with creative technologist and evolutionary entrepreneur Michael Gaio.
5:00 PM – 6:30 PM: Open Discussion
For the start of this open conversation, Michael Gaio was still with us, and the conversation transitioned from Michael’s talk (and discussion) to a more open conversation spanning:
- Collective Intelligence
- And some personal issues which came up between some of the participants
We were blessed to be joined by Sanjay from Tokyo, Japan, who has done extensive work and research into collective intelligence, and in particular the Japanese perspective, language and culture around CI and the assimilation of new information.
6:30 PM – 7:20 PM: Open Discussion
This segment was – similar to the previous segment – a mix between interesting conversation and some disfunctionality among the participants and the participation. Please watch with patience.
7:30 PM – 9:30 PM: Especially Great Open Discussion
We discuss how our world is broken, how reality is broken, and how we can move forward with collective superintelligence to orchestrate the transformation of our world on multiple levels. We also talk about media and the new “super medium” of collective superintelligence. Participants shared about their experience in the media and in starting and forwarding movements – local and beyond. We also analyzed why the current world and its institutions are incapable of grappling with the current witches brew of wicked problems.
9:45 PM – 11:15 PM: Open Discussion
We talk about how people are handling the current collapse. There is a fair amount of discussion about vegan activism.
11:15 PM – 12:00 AM: New Zealand in the House!
We talked about the perspective of New Zealand in all of this.
12:00 AM – 12:40 AM: CI Planning and Storytelling from Jamen
We discuss how we plan on building out the planetary network of collective superintelligence. Jamen talks about his experiences taking on prohibition and eradicating criminal drug cartels.
12:40 AM – 4:00 AM: Patricia, Shankar, Nolan and Jamen (mostly)
We discuss the connections between Radish and Vegan World 2026, the vision of Radish, and plans going forward for collective superintelligence, including the Block Party. A roadmap of conversations and projects is mapped out in order to make planetary-scale SRM a reality. We also discuss how we can schedule a variety of different Zoom videoconference rooms, covering a variety of topics in parallel. Patricia is anointed our ‘Pele.’ We also came up with a new way to help re-freeze the Arctic sea ice using a derivative of the Ice911.org concept.
4:10 AM – 6:00 AM: *sings Closing Time*
Lauren from CICOLAB joins us, and later Melissa as well. We review the whole plan for SRM conversations and projects. We also talk about art and humor. BJ re-joins us after getting a full night of sleep. We talk about timing: how we are “striking” with collective superintelligence and the myriad solutions she is co-creating at exactly the moment when collapse is in its early stages and impossible to ignore (this is around 1:14:00). Jorge joins us from Mexico City for the home stretch. Around 1:45:45, we countdown to the 24 hour mark.
