Empathy Action Group (CLICK)

I am forcing the change in the Empathy group; I have not done all the perpetration work that I hoped, but I can wait no longer.

Our group has passed its second anniversary, and has experienced radical growth; we have fleshed out what is probably the most important issue of all feeling beings: empathy. I think the most important lesson from our learning is to focus on emotional communication as the tool of positive change, and leave behind most of the thought, because thought is not necessarily feeling.

It has been a great two years. I have reactivated nearly all of the threads and the discussions are some of the most valuable in the world.

Empathy Action is Action Research guided by Empathy, or more accurately, Emotional Communication. Following the model developed in the Katrina group (CLICK), we will try to find a few important and deep rooted and focused causes. With Empathy, these efforts should reach out to all the people of America and the world because they focus on all their personal benefits. And because we have demonstrated empathy, they can feel confidence in what we are asking for; even those who themselves lack empathy; who have no functioning emotional communication neurons.

  • Animal related causes
  • Wide group interaction -- with whole nations, continents and even the world
  • Information Society support: highly technical
  • Energy as part of the world economy, and important to polar bears * Nuturition, housing, and the other basics
  • Psychological and theraputic reality: showing people that they need to feel the effects they have on others

The empathy model, my next area of writing is here at the Wikiversity (CLICK)

The framework is good, a good start. There is a discussion page there, and sub-set pages can be created to contain the action projects.

Ultimately Empathy Action needs to be framed as Emotional Communication as that is what empathy really is, as empathy is about the connections between us, even the connections we feel within ourselves.

Empathy Model

The action aspect will be based on the success of the Katrina support group now known as "Katrina, Remembered" and the writing I developed from our success for my degree in Information Technology that looked closely at the action research model. There are links on the group page, and I will create a library of all our writing after I work on the Empathy Model page.

The basic idea is to focus the efforts of the group along the lines of the psycho- and sociological model we have been developing here in this group. With a few but important and wide-reaching causes developed based on highly accurate information aimed, almost as a weapon, a the policy makers of the world on behalf of the greater good.
