SYNOPSIS: Your team of villagers is there to support you unfolding your personal talents and potentials because, as weird as they might seem in modern culture, your personal talents and potentials are needed by everyone in the village, turned on and flying. Welcome to your village in archearchy.
To a modern citizen, nothing could be more scary-sounding than trying to fit into a ‘traditional village’: convention-bound, small-minded, forcibly uniform… in some ways already dead.
Thinking about joining a village feels scary because you are trying to do a new thing (join a village, become a villager) using very old thoughtware (the teachings about reality as given to you by modern culture). Before even thinking about what it would be like for you to live in a village or intentional community it might be wise first to upgrade your thoughtware, that is, to update what you are using to think with. School taught you what to think about. That is curriculum content. Thoughtware is what you use to think with.
Look at the history of human culture, the slow and sporadic evolution:
from the ‘baby’ cultures of matriarchy where Mother Earth provided everything for over 100,000 years,
to 6000 years ago when the ‘adolescent’ me-me-me cultures of capitalist patriarchal empire took over,
to now, the emergence of ‘adult’ level responsibility cultures… next cultures… the cultures of archearchy…
