  1. ADVANCED MATERIAL:
    1. "The ♥-of-Careof the Life-Path of Organizations Double-Spiral-Antenarrative choices through Landscapes of Quantum Fields" What the 'bet' sort of antenarratives (spiral- & rhizomatic-assemblage-antenarratives) offer is encounters with ethics of care, ethics of answerability, in the whole life-path of once-occurrent Being as Bakhtin calls it, or the care for potentiality of Being-a-whole-Self as Heidegger calls his ontological approach. Both are about a life-path rather than a mere epistemic (past narrative) or an ontic (objectification of present). The 'bet' is on 'avenir' shaping and creating a field of potentialities, that also arrive ahead to shape past and present. This is a radical, non-linear approach to quantum storytelling.
    2. Ethnostatistics, Qualimetrics, and Ontological Storytelling -
      1. Ethnostatistics was invented by my friend and colleague, Robert Gephart Jr.. As I interpret ethnostatistics, it is the ontic measuring and calculating mode of inquiry objectifies living stories, and splits off from both the epistemic and ontological modes of inquiry. There are three moments of ethnostatic inquiry: (1) numbers come from a subjectivity; (2) the mathematics of calculation gets mis-applied in social science quantitative methods; and (3) storytelling rhetorics of interpretation of numbers and the math-output tables stretches to an incredibility.
      2. Qualimetrics - invented by Henri Savall and Veronique Zardet (2005) - As I interpret it, Qualimetrics unifies the split between qualitative (epistemic), quantitative (ontic), and the ontological (life-path processes in-Being) by taking an interdisciplinary approach.
      3. Tetranormalization - Also invented by my French colleagues.

quantum storytelling conference

The Dec. 16-18 2011 'Quantum Storytelling Seminar' participants </strong> <p align="left">In 1st Renaissance art developed perspectives and science fell in love with Newtonian mechanistic physics resulting in late modern capitalism. both developments (physics &amp; capitalism) transformed storytelling. In 2nd Renaissance art goes quantum and physics-science is falling in love with the observer effect, in a new ways of fore-conceiving materiality in very different ways than ever before. The old materiality had what Zygmunt Bauman calls 'solid modernity' and the new one, a 'liquid modernity.' Our solid modernity was the iron cage of Weberian bureaucracy and the mechanistic physics materialist rhetoric of vulgar representation of our material condition. When this new materiality encounters a more liquid storytelling, the communion is 'Quantum Storytelling' a very different materialist rhetoric, not as a linear-repeating prediction (from <em>before</em>, but rather as a 'bet' of 'avenir' the future-ahead-of-itself, arriving to transform the past and present. We are just beginning to notice how George Herbert Mead (1958), Martin Heidegger (1962), and especially proto-pragmatist Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1962) have a very different conception of space-time-materiality. In particular, Merleau-Ponty's (1962: 309) temporal wave and his sense of spiral (p. 315), provides a very different antenarrative: &quot;But co-existence, which in fact defines space, is not alien to time, but is the fact of two phenomena belonging to the same temporal wave&quot; (p. 309). I combined these insights in the film, with Heideggerian ontology, a being-in-the-world where spiral-antenarratives buffeted by updraft and downdraft forces is mediating in-between little living stories we live and the narrative grand representations. I am working on a new book on Pragmatist Storytelling Philosophy, where the pragmatist-ontology antecedes and antenarrative-connects the epistemic narratives, the empiric narratives, with the little living stories. <p align="left">&nbsp;</p> <h1 align="left">MENU OF QUANTUM STORYTELLING RESOURCES</h1> <table width="99%" border="1" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="1"> <tr> <th width="20%" scope="col">LINKS</th> <th colspan="2" scope="col">DESCRIPTION</th> </tr> <tr> <th scope="row"><a href="http://ANTENARRATIVE.COM" title="ANTENARRATIVE.COM" target="_blank">ANTENARRATIVE.COM</a></th> <td width="44%"><p>Order <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Storytelling-Future-Organizations-Antenarrative-Management/dp/0415873916" target="_blank">Storytelling and Future of Organizations: An Antenarrative Handbook</a> - (2011, Routledge) <strong></strong></p> <p><em><strong><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0415873916/ref=sib_dp_pt#reader-link" target="_blank"><img src="images/storytelling and future handbook.png" alt="Storytelling and the Future&hellip; Handbook" width="300" height="300"></a></strong></em></p></td> <td width="33%"><p><em><strong>Antenarrative</strong></em> connects webs of living stories now-ness to grand narratives of past and <em>bets on </em>future. <strong><em>ANTE</em></strong>narrative means <strong><em>before</em></strong>-narrative rigidity/reification and <strong><em>bets</em></strong> on the possible futures arriving here-and-now. Four kinds of antenarratives are being studied: linear-, cyclical-, spiral-, and rhizomatic-antenrrating. The French have two words for future: <strong>'<em>futur</em>'</strong> as 'prediction' of how the 'before' will recur in the future, and <strong><em>'avenir'</em></strong> the shaping and creating of future (the bet). This double meaning is the foundation of 'antenarrative' the 'before'-narrative solidifies, and the 'bet' of avenir, the shaping and creating of the future that is before narrative. Antenarrative is simply put a connectivity of little <a href="Boje/What is Living Story.htm" title="What is Living Story essay by D. M. Boje 2012" target="_blank">living stories</a> we live and the bigger grander narratives that fossilize. That is a avenir happening between physics and storytelling.</p> <p>Merleau-Ponty's (1962: 309) quote about 'spiral' gives some insights into antenarrative dynamics of spacetimemateriality: &quot;If we project on to the screen the post-image of a spiral revolving round its centre, in the absence of any fixed framework, space itself vibrates and dilates from the centre to the periphery.&quot; The linear-, cyclic-, rhizomatic-, and spiral-antenarratives are very intertwining as they intra-actively connect the narratives (epistemic &amp; empiric) with the little living stories. It is this dynamic of narrative-antenarrative-[little living]story that I call the domain of storytelling. It has a materiality, not in the Newtonian sense, but in the quantum sense.</p></td> </tr> <tr> <th scope="row"><a href="http://ECOSACRED.NET" title="ECOSACRED.NET" target="_blank">ECOSACRED.NET</a></th> <td colspan="2">EcoSacred is a posthumanist understanding of ecology for its sacredness.
