Synergy Summarized

Synergy explains the ever increasing power of each additional input.
In other words, every additional input has an ever greater impact.

Synergy is most easily defined as 1 + 1 = 3.
Two heads are better than one. Many hands make light the work.

Synergy compounds itself at an exponential rate.
This means the multiplier gets bigger and bigger every time you
add one new person into the growing mix. This means …

Beyond-the-norm results are more easily achieved
when various viewpoints, strengths and energies are combined
for the common good.

Synergy is mathematically depicted as follows: 

  1. 1  = 1
  2. 1 + 1  = 3
  3. 1 +1 + 1 = 9
  4. 1 + 1 +1 + 1  = 18
  5. 1 + 1 +1 + 1 + 1 = 30
  6. 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 + 1 = 45
  7. 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 = 63
  8. 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 + 1 =  84
  9. 1 + 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 +1 = 108
  10. 1 + 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 = 135

Add a 3rd person and together you can accomplish the work of 9
separate, dis-connected, individuals.
Add a 4th and 5th and your combined strength increases exponentially
to the power of 30 single, separate contributors. It means: …

20   people have the creative capacity of 570 separate individuals.
 50   people joined in consciousness have the power of 3,675.
100  people cooperating together can accomplish the work of 14,850.
500  people joined in common cause can do as much as 374,250.
999  people sharing visions and intentions create the same results
          as if 1,495,503 were involved.

Once 1,000 people choose to cooperatively harness and harmonize
their energies, they have created an energy field capable of
stimulating the change it would otherwise take more than
1 ½ million separate individuals to make happen. 


How to Compute the Potential Power of Synergistic Combinations

For our example, let us begin with three people – A, B and C.
According to the definition of synergy, 1 + 1 = 3.  Therefore  (A+B) = 3

Add a third party to the mix and you get four possible combinations.
(A+B) + (A+C) + (B+C) = 3 + 3 + 3 = 3 x 3 = 9

Add a fourth party to the mix and you get six two-party pairs.
(A+B) + (A+C) + (A+D) + (B+C)  + (B+D) + (C+D) = 6 x 3 = 18

Morphogenetic Fields – When you combine understanding of Synergy
with an understanding of Morphogenetic Fields, it becomes obvious
how positive change on a global scale can happen almost overnight. 

It is said that once 1% of a population holds the same idea, it
has become “embedded” in consciousness and cannot be stopped.
Which is not to comment on how long it might take.
Once that number reaches 10%, it rapidly takes hold throughout
the rest of the population at an ever more easily observable rate.

Boiled Frog for Dinner

The Truth about Frogs

Have you heard the “Boiled Frogs for Dinner” story?
Put a frog in boiling water and he’ll immediately jump out.
Hey, man, it’s hot as Hades in there.
What are you trying to do, cook my goose?”

Put the same smart, able-to-act frog in a pot of cold water and slowly increase the heat,
and you’ll have boiled frog for dinner – guaranteed.

Fact – Slow incremental change is difficult to notice, easily overlooked.
Ignore the signs and signals and at some point you’ll wish you hadn’t,
for it will be too late to change course.

The Truth about Humanity

For thousands of years the heating of humanity has been heading towards the
too-late to-do-anything-about-it point of no return.  Unwittingly, unknowingly,
self-destruction has long been our course. For most of this time we lacked the
science and historical perspective necessary for all but the most farseeing to discern
what was actually happening. For the past century…as is common when leading edge
thinkers propose to change our paradigms…denial and resistance has been our
(the world’s) consistent response.

We have now reached the “Tipping Point,” the crisis point that occurs in all
evolutionary cycles. T
hat survive-and-thrive or disintegrate-and-die moment
when things could go either way.
Just like frogs, we have not yet responded to the
ever-hotter caldron of suffering we have created for ourselves on a global scale.

Current crises were long-ago forecasted by ever increasing time numbers
of future oriented thinkers. Instead of questions and dialogue, exploration and
consideration, humanity has a long history of denigrating and deriding anyone who
doesn’t agree with what the majority prefers to believe.

How can we avoid sharing a fate similar to boiled frogs? Don’t be like the
famous scientist who once said, “No amount of proof will ever convince me to believe.”
Closed minds cannot discover better ways of doing things.


Keep These Truths in Mind

No great improvements in the lot of mankind are possible until
a great change takes place in … [our] modes of thought.
– J. S. Mill

 All truth passes through three states. First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
Arthur Schopenhauer

The truth that sets men free is the truth they don’t want to hear.”
