Integrity Clarity Possibility Love Initiation High-Level-Fun
I love to create and navigate possibility spaces in which people can safely and clearly engage authentic adulthood initiatory processes.
I love to empower people to empower other people how to do this too. I intend to empower 10,000 Possibility Management trainers before I die.
I love building bridges to next culture - archearchy - the culture that comes after matriarchy and patriarchy. But I have discovered that you cannot cross a bridge until you have found the bridge and are at the bridge...
I enjoy helping people heal technopenuriaphobia (TPP) the fear of being without modern technology, so people can reconnect to Gaia and the Earth and become global citizens.
I write books and articles, make videos, give talks, and design and deliver initiatory processes in trainings. I have a lot of wild projects in mind.
Mostly these days I pray we will make the shift to a regenerative human presence on Earth. I think Gaia would love her human experiment to work.
I would love it too.
I welcome collaborators to help make these things happen...

Next culture personal development...
We learn to empower each other in our full potential, living life at our best, free of conditioning and limitations.
We want to see the human race thriving on Earth, co-creating the world we each want to live in!
The concept that land on Earth can be owned by either a person or an organization is a superstition, easy to understand, but without basis in reality.
The laws that declare the legality of buying and selling land are based on an ecocidal paradigm. Submitting yourself to western civilization’s rule of law is criminally insane.
There is already a precedent that nation-states exist wherever the bearer of a passport of that nation-state stands. Therefore nation-states do not have to be associated with plots of land on Earth.
A nanonation is a cultural-context-space held by a group of three or more people mutually committed to each other while serving a common purpose.
How to build and occupy your own nanonation.
Extraordinarily powerful free-form co-creation

Gaia Is Hiring
25th - 28th of May 2017 - Puls der Erde
In summer 2015 the Possibility Management Trainer Patrizia Servidio followed an amazing impulse to announce online that GAIA IS HIRING (See link).
She has since then been receiving an overwhelming response.
After being joyfully surprised but also flabbergasted she invited a team to come together and organize the first “GAIA IS HIRING” UnConference.
This will happen in Germany at Puls der Erde
Puls der Erde
Community for researching and spreading sustainable ways of living.
We put clear strong seeds into the Earth so that our next generations can harvest. Our intention is to grant our children high quality four-body food on a daily basis so they grow into responsible adults helping to bridge the Earth into a blossoming oasis.
robert wolff was a friend of mine. I never met him in person, but I exchanged calls and emails with him several times in his last years. He died late in 2015 at his Big Island Hawaii property. He was about 93 years old. I don't know the details, but since he lived alone and his exact date of death is not listed I imagine eventually somebody realized he was not alive anymore. He was going blind and knew he would die soon.
I fell in love with robert while reading his book Original Wisdom - stories of an ancient way of knowing. (I highly recommend it...)
robert (who always wrote his name in small letters...) was a regular contributor to Rob Kall's OpEdNews, and also ran a website where anyone could download his latest writings for free: www.wildwolff.com.
I was recently shocked to discover that since robert died his website is no longer online, meaning all of his unpublished writings are no longer available. I am sure this would make him angry and sad. Fortunately I had downloaded some of his bigger works and I am happy to make them available below in a robert wolff Library.
If you happen to have additional robert wolff material that should be shared please get it to me to include below. In particular the library is missing:

SPIRAL by robert wolff 2002
The spiral we call evolution circles around the center that is Life becoming.
Evolution spirals around and to the light.
robert's story begins thusly:
"At first there were rumors. Yet another so-called Unidentified Object. I did not pay much attention. I am deeply aware of my environment, I cherish and nurture the plants and trees and the animals that live in and around my garden (what Americans call ‘yard’). Outer space seems very remote to me. But very soon after those first rumors the Media exploded with what apparently was real news. Observers had seen something in orbit around our earth. And inevitably a few days after that the media talked about an alien space craft..."

Haina by robert wolff 2003
HA‘INA MAI KA PUANA
LET THE STORY BE TOLD
Stories are rarely new, their value is in the retelling of human truths. Many of the stories in this collection are old, they happened many years ago, and were written a few years ago. What made me want to put them together in this book is that they are like snapshots of a past that is only just behind us. Our world is changing very rapidly, so rapidly that the world of a previous generation seems almost incomprehensibly strange.
"Ha‘ina mai ka puana" is a Hawaiian expression, used in almost all traditional and many modern Hawaiian songs. It is the last verse, used very much as a story teller might end his telling with “and so it is.” As many Hawaiian expressions it can mean other things as well, including “let the story be told.”

Anansi Part 1 by robert wolff 2005
FROM THE FOREWORD
"There were survivors. Somewhere in the far northern part of North America a few survivors found each other at a cabin in a forest. Their story is told in Rain of Ashes. Other survivors had started a village of sorts, near a west-facing coast of middle Africa. As elsewhere, among the survivors were some who had recovered an ancient human talent to commune without words. For some of them, distance apparently was no barrier. One such, an African, called a cry that was heard by some in the cabin in the woods. The African organized a daring expedition. They had found an abandoned private jet, and with a few companions—and a 'real' pilot—they made it to the people in the north woods. Eventually, they returned, leaving two passengers that had come from Africa, and taking on two American women who wanted to join 'the Africa group.' This book, Anansí, is the story of the travelers, the African group, beginning after they left the north woods."

Earth Renews ver 2.2 by robert wolff 2014
Earth Renews, and human kind...
This is the last and most complete version of Earth Renews that I know of.
robert wolff included revised versions of Saba, Anansi, and Rain of Ashes in Earth Renews.
robert's masterpiece of a future that becomes less fictional day-by-day begins like this:
"Tomorrow I die. That's what the new teacher says. How can she know? Joe and Larry died a
long time ago. Maybe ten days, or thirty? It's hard to know what days mean any more when it is always night. The teacher's name is La Honda. Funny name. She says it is where she grew up, or where she was before, I can't remember. La Honda says it will be day again. One of these days she said. I've sort of forgotten what 'day' means. Night was when we were in bed, but now I sleep when I'm tired. So many hours are a day. But, how do you know what hours are? When La Honda said I die tomorrow, she meant soon, I think. Because I threw up in school. Well, not really school. It is that house where some people lived we did not like. I don't know why we did not like them; I thought they were okay. But, my mom says they do bad things. How does she know?"

MY Film and book projects
Stories and filmscripts in process...
Bridges to Next Culture (book and video) by Clinton Callahan
Following an impulse from Marion Callahan in 2012, a team of between 3 and 9 Possibility Managers followed the whims of Gaia through South-East Asia and around the world for three-quarters of a year. During the journey we made video interviews with over 60 astonishing edgeworkers about their projects and the insights that allowed them to succeed. These interviews have yet to be cut into short-bits for a film/link book, and then woven together into a full-length documentary. Who wants to do this with me?
Collaboration (short filmscript) by Clinton Callahan
Mike: Hi, I’d like one loaf of bread.
Baker: Whole wheat or rye?
Mike: Whole wheat, please.
Baker: You are new around here.
Mike: Yes. I heard this was the best bakery in town!
The baker wraps the fresh warm loaf of bread in brown paper and places it on top of the glass display case. Mike hands the baker a five Euro bill. The baker doesn’t even begin to reach for it. He squints directly into Mike's eyes.
Baker: Perhaps you don’t know what that is.
Mike: This? It’s money.
Baker: It is a false paradigm.
Baker: Money has misbehaved.
Mike: What do you mean, misbehaved?
Baker: I mean that people give value to that paper in your hand or to numbers on a bank’s website. It’s a big mistake.
Mike: But this is worth five Euros! It’s a medium of exchange.
Baker: That’s the point. You think that piece of paper has value. I don’t. If I don't value that paper how can there be a fair exchange? There is no exchange-rate between that paper and the currency I use.
Mike: How do I pay for this bread then? What’s your currency?
Baker: Creative collaboration.
Baker: I don’t bake bread for money. I bake bread because it turns me on to make bread for people in our community. If I exchanged my bread for that money then I would contaminate our local culture with an artifact from a culture that is rapidly headed for self-destruction. I won’t do that. My culture is too precious to contaminate it with that money.
Mike: But this is worth more than your loaf of bread!
Baker: Not to me...
End of Waiting (full-length feature filmscript) by Clinton Callahan
This is the story of a slight intervention by Gaia, the living spirit of planet earth. Due to the actions of mankind Gaia has gradually come to fear for her life. After great deliberation she has decided to take action. She reaches through the field of coincidences to influence the lives of a few extraordinary human beings. Her wish is to continue playing the infinite game of evolution. This is the same wish as mankind - although many have forgotten. Gaia is a gentle and kind Goddess playing against unimaginable forces of darkness. There is not much hope that she will succeed. Using education instead of force she delicately unbalances the disorder and invites her allies to build the Hidden University.
End of Waiting (novel) by Clinton Callahan
“We are asaXhosa – the fierce people.” She wills the familiar words to return things to the old normal again. “I have a gift to give and the gift requires me to create. Creating is different from pro-creating. The village needs my gift.”
Heat waves shimmer beyond the wall of the dirt-floored compound. Cicadas screech louder and it interrupts her thinking. Her gaze drops to her arms where her baby, only a few days old, stops breathing, shudders once, and dies. The flies are already eating his face.
She doesn’t move. She doesn’t cry out. There is nothing anyone can do to help, and no one to do it besides. Her son’s death goes unnoticed in the world. She waits a few moments to establish contact with his soul and then speaks the death prayer to guide his passage. “To the one who did not yet have a name…”
JET and Eddie develop a news-scanning program which detects the intention vectors forcing modern culture towards oblivion. Someone is taking civilization down on purpose, while Mother nature fights to initiate humans into adulthood. If civilization is the eggshell, what is hatching out? And who is the chicken? It's time for JET and Eddie to invent a new game.
Galaxy Babes (filmscript opening scene) by Clinton Callahan
Carola and Suzanne are ironing. They wear t-shirts with a big logo that says 'Ironing Maidens.'
Suzanne farts and makes a kind of focused face. She does not stop ironing.
Suzanne farts again.
CAROLA: “If you could teach me to fart like that we could shove tubes up our butts and heat these irons with bio-gas.”
Suzanne farts again.
CAROLA: Wrinkles her nose at the stink. “Or is this a new perfume you are developing to prove to our customers that we are vegetarian?”
Suzanne glances up at Carola but keeps ironing.
CAROLA: “What I still don’t understand is why a trained quantum physics philosopher like you has chosen a career of ironing shirts.”
SUZANNE: “That’s simple to answer. It is because I get to spend my time with you telling me jokes instead of with university bureaucrats telling me they are going to reduce my funding.”
SUZANNE: (continues) “…plus I like getting rid of wrinkles…” She proudly holds up a freshly ironed shirt that she has buttoned around a simple wooden hanger, and grabs another un-ironed shirt from the basket for comparison. “I get to change this (the wrinkled shirt) into this (the ironed shirt). It’s very rewarding.”
CAROLA: “I think it’s funny how much you can tell about a person’s life by digging through their laundry. For example, I know that Janice ate curry, that Sam has a new girlfriend, that the Dinkel family went out to the steak house after church, and that the Stevenson boy, what’s his name? Garth! Had a rough football game… This is what I am thinking about. What are you thinking about?”
SUZANNE: “I was thinking about wrinkles, about time, and about opportunities. I was thinking how I can only choose to use an opportunity when that opportunity is present. So having an opportunity is one wrinkle of cloth touching another wrinkle. If you choose to use an opportunity you jump from one wrinkle to the next wrinkle. It’s like using rare opportunities to make space-time jumps. And each choice you make changes everything.”
CAROLA: Stops ironing and looks at Suzanne. “You heard of that story called A Wrinkle In Time?”
SUZANNE: “Yes. But what is most amazing is to get it that if human beings in the future ever figure out how to do time travel - to jump from one time-wrinkle to the next - then the time travelers are already here.”
In that moment the doorbell rings...
Gameworld (story) by Clinton Callahan
In the book Journey to Ixtlan, Carlos Castaneda briefly mentions a set of distinctions he got from his teacher Don Juan Matus, who called these ideas the four enemies of a man on the path. I am sure that women on the path have the same enemies…
Many years after first learning of them their importance finally struck me. If it is wise to know your selves, it would be equally wise to know your enemies. Your selves and your enemies are dancing together in vampire and victim gyrations.
The way to get to know your enemies is to fight them. By struggling against your enemies you discover the profoundness of the grip they have on you and you discover who you are. You detect where in you they hide and by what mechanism the enemies lock into your Being and you discover your inner structure.
The first enemy of a Being on the path of personal emergence into adulthood is fear.
You were trained that fear is bad, fear is negative, fear means something is wrong and should be avoided at all costs. Because of your lack of initiation into an adult, conscious, responsible relationship with fear, when you feel afraid – even barely-detectable 1% intense afraid – it stops you dead in the middle of creating a new future. Not only that, it usually retracts you reflexively back into your comfort zone, the turtle popping back into his shell. Perhaps you never again explore in that direction. How many opportunity doors have you closed this way?
Without luck, without accidental help from your friends and enemies, without courage and real efforts on your part to grow up, you may remain a victim of fear for the remainder of your life, never battling this enemy into submitting to your ownership. You may know people crystallized at this level? Still afraid of fear. Still hesitating rather than going forward into the transformational jaws of new possibility. You do not have to be one of them. The cure for fear is clarity.
By discovering that fear is one of the four feelings accompanied by anger, sadness and joy, your fear is tamed. You experientially detect what fear feels like, the quickening of reaction, bypassing the mind to escape fast enough, or thrash out against the threat. The hair standing up on arms and the back of your head. Eyes wide, fingers out, the tension in your chest, the terrifying high-pitched scream at the top of your throat. These sensations can now be consciously detected and navigated, start and stop, from 0% to 100% intense, a lively but neutral energy and information that serves you in practical ways. With the clarity that fear is not bad or negative, fear becomes an ally, an intelligent tool. Fear tells you what to take care of, what to watch out for, what to notice and handle so things come out well. Fear gives you subtle warning that turns into precision for navigating delicate maneuvers and spaces. You cannot navigate spaces of love without direct and ongoing access to the carefulness generated by fear. Clarity about fear frees you from your enemy!
You can dare! You can show up, even if you are afraid! You can choose options that are not offered on the menu. You can speak out and ask for what you want. Clarity is your hero.
So you start collecting clarity, all the clarity you can get... more and more clarity, and more clarity, until you realize that you can't actually do anything with the clarity. To do things you need power...

Karma Kops (filmnovel) by Clinton Callahan
No one would do bad stuff if they fully realized the automatic karmic consequences created by their actions. Instead of police going around trying to catch people in crimes, and courts trying to punish people after they made a mess, Karma Korps trainers go around giving people a chance to see the karmic consequences of their actions so they get more of a choice about what they are creating for themselves in their near future.
When police typically encounter someone from knowing what is right or wrong they create a power struggle. Egos clash. It’s a contest about who is baddest, who is fastest, who has the most powerful weapons, who is going to win.
Guy Pendrift starts learning in his dreams about new kinds of non-confrontational engagement of the Karma Korps. His girlfriend thinks he has gone nuts, but life gives Guy plenty of chances to try out his new skills. He fails more often than not, and his feisty fight or flight reflex gets him in trouble with bigger and bigger enemies.
Momenta (filmscript scenes) by Clinton Callahan
“And inside the hollow thing… is emptiness…”
“I think it was always like this...”
“Before now I was not ready to accept it”
“I thought I had to be somebody in the world. Be somebody for you so you would love me.”
Being completely still.
Close up of wood burning in the stove, orange and red, crackling, becoming glowing coals.
“Now… that ‘somebody’ is gone.”
“It was only an illusion… or delusion… all those needs… pressures.”
“Now I am an empty space.”
Morph (story) by Clinton Callahan
"What’s up, dude? Your computer crash again?"
Silence. Soberness. It looks like it may even be grief. Djinn never shows grief...
“Did somebody die?” Hank is afraid.
“What are you talking about Djinn? What do you mean ‘maybe yes’?”
Unprecedented silence, the sound of a soul dropping irretrievably into a black hole that has no intentions at all of ever spitting it back out.
“Here, sit down dude. I’ll bring coffee.”
“Coke then… or tea?”
“Uh…” Hank ehausts his repertoire of solutions. He stands with hands out in utter hopelessness.
“I think I died," says Djinn.
Hank can’t even begin to wrap his mind around this. “You died...”
“Yes. It feels like that... Approximately… I would imagine… All my Bitcoins have vanished..."
Chin never spoke with so little energy. Hank is worried. “Can you say more about this?”
“Okay, coffee…” says Djinn. “No wait! We need the Team. Call the Team. We’re going on a journey. Tell people to pack lightly for three weeks. We start now and we’re going dark. Close your computer. Forget the coffee. There is no time. ”
They write a constitution, make their own passports, start a nanonation, and create a darknet underground railroad team helping people escape from modern culture to next culture. Then they discover to the refugee camp on Lesbos Island, Greece, and they create a structure for delivering EDE to the refugees, so they skill up to deliver. That is when they are discovered...

He discovers an underground stockpile of fissionable Plutonium hidden there by terrorists. Alan’s team decides to capture the plutonium and drop it into a live volcano in Hawaii using their quad drones. But there is a downside to radical responsibility…
