Fibonacci Sequence Revisited


Fibonacci Revisited

An old story seems to fit here. Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to His disciples, “These infants being suckled are like those who enter the Kingdom.” They said to Him, “Shall we then, as children, enter the Kingdom?” Jesus said to them, “When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female into a single one, so that the male not be male nor the female; and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and an image in the place of an image; then will you enter [the Kingdom].”

Does this suggest that we truly are able to create our bodies? How? Sounds like a really interesting ‘spin’ on things, eh? Quantum discoveries allude to the possibility of our outer realities being an outpicturing of our internal belief systems. The incongruence in humanity’s behavior is simply a manifestation of false belief systems built over millennia. Time for a change? Is it possible we are cosmic consciousness condensed into form becoming aware of the fact?

With your permission I would like to share a few things about the development of cosmic physics, spindoctors of the new millennium, and personal experience. I hope that the structure of my writing and the vocabulary is understandable. I Am quite open to questions should the need arise. I may not have all the answers. I have experienced many modes of communication over the years, yet I find that expressing myself authentically resonates with the integrity of my heart.

Many messengers choose to use people who are open to channel and/or have a propensity for connecting with the etheric airwaves much like modern media outlets. They usually intend for you to believe them as undisputed truth. I ask that you not believe a thing I am about to present. Just read with an open mind and ask your own intelligence to reveal any truth.

Advances in quantum physics and spirituality are leading the way for humanity to discover just how connected things are in the holistic view on Planet Earth. Even new spiritual cinema producers are finding ways to display inner experiences on an external screen with animation that is quite close to the view from within. Discovering doorways or portals into other worlds happens quite naturally when one is open to it and has the right set of circumstances prevailing in the moment.

Spiritual paths converge as one finds their own Divine Blueprint unfolding in the blink of an eye, forever changing their lives and critical understanding of the Nature of Creation. Many find these openings and, not quite sure what to do, often never return because of the difficulty in bridging the worlds of experience that develop from further exploration. Sometimes it just seems so unreal that the mind, in its current state of confusion, is unable to relinquish control and inhibits further development. Balancing inner and outer realities is an age-old dilemma.

Spindoctors of a different sort…

merkanimaThe image on the right is a collection of mathematical computations using the Fibonacci sequence, arriving at a quite interesting graphic presentation. A discussion with a friend regarding the figure and about sacred geometry facilitated a most intriguing experience in meditation. We had been discussing the investigation of  the ‘X’ factor that modern alchemists are theorizing that, when discovered, will bridge worlds within the quantum and hyperdimensional physics, allowing humans to expand their awareness into other dimensions. Current information regarding ‘Merkaba Meditations’ also allude to this capacity. While contemplating our conversation just before meditating, I was reminded of some recent discoveries that may be of interest regarding inner portals and the bridging of worlds.

Much of this information has been present in many ancient texts and even some current pieces available on the Net. A simple keyword search will reveal much. There are ‘keys’ that allow the ‘seeker of truth,’ the ‘mystery school initiate’ or the ‘spiritual devotee’ to access more profound and simple truths in the organizational matrix of Creation. This access has been happening in unprecedented numbers within the last few years it appears.

Some, like myself, are particularly open to these experiences and are sharing what we find. It is not meant to wave a flag like someone with a messianic complex, yet these apparent evolutionary understandings are real. We’ve all been waiting for ‘something’ to begin happening. Let me diverge on a tangential congruency for a moment.

Our world is changing rapidly and people are recognizing the need for authenticity, honesty and integrity toward others. This factor alone promotes an attraction of ‘God drops’ or ‘insightful moments’ where many facts that have been collected suddenly have a ‘domino effect’ as the dots are connected in consciousness, where an instantaneous pulse of ‘light’ extends and contracts in all of a nanosecond. The affect is felt as a profound moment of connection beyond comprehension, a cognitive cohesion of congruent thoughts if you will, a peace that surpasseth understanding. Sometimes it feels like a short heart-pulse of such incredible depth that articulating the understanding could take years.

A short time ago I was astonished at the connections from a continent away with regard to this process. I’d been experimenting in these inner worlds for some years, not realizing that others had access, too, because I rarely encountered anyone, let alone consciously recognized them. Still, I could not deny what I knew and shared nor the reflection provided by the members of the RAHMA Mission group in Santiago, Chile. Part of me is astounded at the humble happening, a greater part is awed by the inspiration this experience offered others.

As you look at the figure above, an example of the ‘spin’ defined in the merkaba meditations mentioned previously, the obvious ‘star’ configuration appears in irrefutable magnificence, resonance and recapitulation of the sacred geometry of space/time. Consider that the points of the star are the exit and entrance of a single point of light moving though a ‘plane,’ an example of the ‘trinity’ appears like the proton, neutron, and electron, sublime and revealed in the spiritual quest for the cosmic conundrum: ‘Who Am I?’ and more importantly, ‘How Am I?’ Interestingly enough, I’d also been given another ‘Star of David’ with additional details over 20 years ago while standing in front of a precision grinding machine at an aerospace company…my day job.

All I did at the time was listen and follow subtle promptings of the ‘voice within’ that I had known for years and trusted implicitly. This image appeared to have many ancient symbols included in its design, somehow reflecting some deep-seated triggers to my own investigation of the nature of Creation and our designated purpose within it (the cosmic conundrum). Knowing oneself is the first step to finding one’s path. Researching this symbol, and its various sub-symbols has led to some phenomenal experiences and understanding, with the articulation of deeper developments still in process.

Moving along to the Torus…

Although a simple process, the explanation of a prescribed path to a merkaba activation meditation and inner experience can be challenging and difficult, at best. Moving inward with the flow of introspection for integration, we often feel the swirling flow engulf us as we journey the rainbow matrix. I began using a term called ‘egocentripidy’ some time ago as evidence of the necessary incorporation and integration of the ego, which many feel to be a deterrent to the mastery of self.

A naive perspective of Oneness would indicate that everything is included. A discussion of the Fibonacci sequence revealed an interesting correlation to the torus. Seems this serendipity spawned symbiotic samples on a variety of e-group lists in the summer/fall of 2001. At any rate, I trust it is helpful. I may not always be able to express in a language compatible with all, yet the gift of intelligence with a large vocabulary allows an interesting wordsmithing to the cosmic myth weaving process…

Using the example of Einstein’s torus below, imagine what a multi-dimensional folding in/out of these planes would engage in the realms of consciousness. Might it lead to a further recognition of a holistic view of living, complete with a natural urge to merge with our Creators?If you notice, the various numeric sequences produce patterns on the torus. There is another graph that demonstrates just how the numbers lay out on a single plane yet, as applied to this model, produce a series of interconnecting planes/dimensions/worlds. The nature of the torus is to be constantly turning in/folding out, so these ‘worlds’ are constantly being integrated or ‘shared’ as the torus activity continues.

Now, here is the mind-blower… we each have one of these in the center of our being, constantly in motion with pulses and spins of unimaginable magnitude. What is the result? What do you think? What do you feel? What do you do? What life unfolds? What living environment results when many experience this process? We increase our awareness of ‘what is’ and are therefore more capable of experiencing ‘unconditional love’ or ‘pure shareable energy’ in the process. It is as simple as a single breath in complete trust of All That Is.

When we breath, feel, and think from this point within our natural metaphysical makeup, our ability to perceive and our awareness of self and others is magnified beyond dogma and tradition. Walking with this ‘conceptual image’ looks much like the image below, put together as a complete sphere. It resembles the electromagnetic fields of the earth as well.I’ll borrow a piece from a friend to explain the ‘horn torus.’ The Horn Torus (nearly spherical torus with an infinitesimally small/wide center) Universe is often mistaken for being a sphere. All spheres in the universe share the connection to the center of this torus, including the ‘great sphere.’

The outside of the torus (the ‘outer bounds’ of the boundless infinite universe) is also the same surface as the center. Everything contained within the outer surface and the center is also in the center. This applies to the individual as well as the collective, like fractals of the ONE. We are all one, and all exist within that singularity of oneness. Higher vibrational existence will not mean we are abandoning physicality, or dense realities such as this one. What it will mean is that we can experience such realities without getting “stuck ” in them.

What’s really interesting is that we go through our lives with a fluidity of experience already, from one event to another. We carry emotional charges throughout our lives resulting from our experience. This example goes beyond the emotional bindings of the mental bias that we often create without realizing it. When one reaches a place of ‘unconditional love’ these emotional charges are nullified. Of course this is only an intellectual explanation of the process. Living in LOVE, what might be called Limitless Oscillating Vibrational Energy, is the greatest challenge of all humanity and the objective of all spiritual teachings. Somewhere along the way, our understanding of science and spirituality becomes congruent.

Fibonacci revisited…

rodinThe Fibonacci sequence is the mathematical expression of the fractal that apparently exists at the core of every natural order, including human DNA. The discovery of the ‘Golden Mean’ is the basis for one of he most profound mathematical postulations of history, the Pythagorean Theory. Researching this further on your own is highly recommended. This sequence also produces an array of symbols, including several variations of the 6-pointed hexagram, or star tetrahedron in 3d. Spiritual mathematicians or sacred geometrists have often talked about the ‘X’ factor that enables access to the other worlds on a fully conscious level.

In looking at one of the sequences of exploration, there is a pattern that, when drawn connecting specific points, reveals an open-ended square with an ‘X’ in the middle, hence I suppose, the ‘X’ factor. Not the type of thing you would figure from such a symmetrical sequence. Paradoxes abound in the quest for the cosmic conundrum. Interestingly enough, the ‘X’ becomes a swastika as it begins to spin. The swastika becomes the medicine wheel and both are ubiquitous in religious symbology. Again, when one looses the ‘charge’ associated with either image, a natural understanding unfolds quite organically.

When the number sequence is reversed it produces a ‘Z’ shape across the middle of the star. So far, this key to the door of our inner experience is more of a ‘Z’ factor. Could this fit with yet another paradox; looking deeper in the mirror and the journey down the proverbial rabbit hole? Musing as it is, one of my partner’s pet names for me is ‘Z-man’ as I seem to help her spin in/out when she meditates close to me physically.

A morning meditation just after the late-night/early-morning discussion revealed how it looked in 3d, with the upper and lower lines curved in opposite directions and the center line slightly curved as though it were representing a spinning ‘Z’, which is what the entrance to the portals resemble as  one looks down upon the ‘Z,’ which is not to say that we are superior beings. Imagine looking down a tube with a Z-shaped spiraled blade  (or S-shaped depending on the top of bottom view) spinning at varying speeds. I think you get the picture.

The ‘X’ factor is revealed when you consider going AND returning, the mirror images, or spins. It shows up as an ‘X’ or a swastika on a two-dimensional model. When viewed from an internal point of perspective one can literally watch as the implosion and explosion occurs simultaneously and in perfect harmony.This also ties into the rotating feathered serpent medicine wheel that the Mayans spoke of and Jose Arguelles described could be seen above the ‘gathering places’ during the Harmonic Convergence in 1987. Most other cultures have similar descriptions of this imagery, whether in a positive or negative light indicates their inability to see things as ‘whole’ at the time.

Humans have always tended to separate their experience into polarities of fear and love, separation from and union with the Divine. To simply observe this imagery without criticism leads to freedom of the mind and alignment with heart. Sounds so simple doesn’t it? I saw the rotating feathered serpent medicine wheel during a campout with my family the weekend of the Harmonic Convergence when I asked, “If God created us then who created God?,” and it appeared again during a group meditation with some friends before returning to Phoenix in the fall of 2001.

These friends asked if we could meditate to the music my band had produced as they felt incorporating our music would help facilitate the opening of these portals. The music fits the genres of ‘celestial rock’ or ‘progressive improv’ and I had used it for guided meditations and hypnotherapy sessions in the past. What we experienced was nothing short of amazing.This image also seems to be reflected in the spiraled helix of our DNA, only minus one cross-member, simplified to some extent.

What if you included the yin/yang as a two-dimensional version of a cross-section of DNA, with the energy movements of ‘on and off’ represented by black and white? By that I mean when one looks at a top-down black and white view of pulsing energy through the DNA helix, the TAO appears. This is another indicator of the spindoctoring of  internal understanding [innate knowing] of the truth of our creation that is within our own being as evidence of ‘How We Are,’ not just ‘Who We Are.’

The etheric empiricists [channels of pseudo-science] cite tens to thousands of ‘additional strands’ through some cosmically controlled ascension of planet Earth to offer some validity of the expansion of consciousness as part of a Master Plan. I cannot speak to the intricacies of our genetic material. However, the appearance of this pattern [Golden Mean] would indicate that there is correlation in all forms in creation, or at least what we can recognize so far. This seems to be making us one big family, eh?

What the relevance may be now is that as we move in and out of various worlds, or even aboard ship (apparently there is a large group who experience individual and collective trips), this pattern is recognizable in the movements throughout the rainbow highways of the Universe available to the spiritual experiencer/seeker. As a result of an amazing increase of spiritual initiates, we are beginning to see the fallacy in putting our trust in the things of this world and those who manage them.

Personal gain has not relinquished its hold on the human psyche just yet. It just doesn’t appear that the right dots are being connected for the benefit of humanity and world leaders appear helpless in the shadow of corporate expansion. Now this might seem an incongruence in the discussion so far. What of the person that is so spiritual that they are no earthly good? It only seems appropriate that our growth in understanding and wisdom of who and how we are would lead us to better collaboration in worldly affairs.

Many are beginning to traverse the intradimensional pathways, encountering some difficulty with the sensations of letting go of the physical form in order to journey. Perhaps the foreknowledge of some of the visuals will make the transitions flow more easily. My sense is that we are already familiar with these pathways from dreamtime. Still as just mentioned, our quest is not about leaving the physical form. Our evolutionary pattern seems to point to the integration of our physical form into a greater experience, where we have the opportunity to live in many mansions simultaneously.

The more we realize these things, and that transcendence often happens in nanoseconds [speed of thought], the more capacity we have to act in the now. The present moment contains the connective dots of past and future views, generations of possibility, and allows us to make better choices in the management of our day-to-day activity. The human race is not simply going to go ‘poof’ into some perfect state of existence, in my humble opinion. The reality is that it is going to take inner and outer activity to match the needs of our whole being, which just happens to be anchored in these physical bodies now, yet obviously goes way beyond them.

An Application of the Z-factor

zmatrixCosmologically our planetary vibration is increasing subtly as we move into new areas of space that some refer to as the Photon Belt, possibly corresponding to the move into the ‘Aquarian Age.’ This also corresponds to an increase in subtle energy vibrations that permeate our feeling worlds. Subtle vibrations are the magnificent manifestations of conscious energy, our own and our Creators’. Now, as vibratory levels have been on the rise, the experiences of ‘inner awareness’ are becoming more prevalent in waking states of consciousness, often facilitated with music and/or other catalysts yet not necessary as meditation alone offers access to these realms.

Strangely enough this also corresponds to an experience I had a decade before, where I was apparently selected for an ‘abduction’ by non-human intelligence which really wasn’t an abduction at all. I learned that their technology is being used to subtly adjust the vibratory rates of certain humans to make it easier to communicate with them. Concurrently, this action also promotes a greater sensitivity within those same humans. Hundreds, if not thousands, of these cases exist but have not been understood to this depth. We’re only scratching the surface of understanding the timeline of ‘soular’ evolution in my opinion.

Regular journeying through meditation seems to remove the fears and emotional disturbances as well, although it doesn’t seem to do too much for daily routines of procrastination or global domination yet. Maybe it has something to do with that eye of the needle thing. The visual pattern is also reminiscent of the merkaba craft generation which is known to facilitate inter- and intrastellar (inside) travel among certain groups of space cadets. This may be helpful in creating better ship to shore communications and travel. I’d recommend at least exploring the merkaba craft generation link.

Let’s look at a direct application of these theorems. This experience provided all participants entrance into realms within consciousness that we rarely explore. These areas are available through what some call the ‘activation of the merkaba’ and using this ‘ship’ as a vehicle. Let me explain what it looked like as our higher selves ‘visioneered’ the process. We all held hands and offered a prayer of unity and protection as we began our internal journey. As the music progressed (first tune was what you are listening to now) I began to ‘vision’ three tubes of light connecting the opposite points of the six-pointed star commonly identified as the Star of David.

These tubes of light had energy flowing in opposite directions simultaneously within them. As they began to increase in flow, the tubes split and began rotating with the points of the star as axis points. The spin became so fast that it became a sphere around us, gradually spreading out into the shape of a saucer-type craft. Crafty as it was, the natural expansion of the light was intense. The edges reached to the edge of the visible horizon within my scope of vision.

At this point, in the center of our circle, there became visible two rotating swastikas. One was moving clockwise, the other counter-clockwise, with trailing edges making it look the Mayan perspective of the rotating feathered serpent medicine wheel. The spinning increased and began to pulse images of each simultaneously upward and downward into infinity. As the rotation continued, the two began to oscillate inward and outward in mirror-like fashion. As one would move outward, the other would move inward and then reverse. The whole thing looked like a transporter beam from Star Trek, with rainbow sparkled filaments throughout the entire movement of the wheels.

As this was taking place, I began to see images like those that Dan Winter had presented in his video presentations of the Fibonacci sequence and its relationship with the Golden Mean (.618) which is how the Pyramids in Egypt are arranged reflecting the mathematical spiral of the expression of the Golden Mean’s graphic form. The image, though, was actually of the vortex representing the compression, or implosion, of pure sharable energy through the center of our hearts. Many waveforms ‘nest’ within each other as this process takes place with each heartbeat that is aligned with pure shareable energy… that which is in alignment with Natural Order of Creation.

Our understanding of chaos flows into natural order as well as we tame the beast (mind) within us all. There is an interesting reference to the word ‘satan’ that indicates the word came from the Greek ‘thetan’ and actually means ‘thinker.’ Some smart fellow thought it would be convenient with a nearly illiterate public to supplant ‘thetan’ with ‘satan’ in order to confabulate early religious teachings. The result enabled Constantine to effectively include all the pagan nuances in the newly constructed religious text so populations could be controlled. It was the first marriage of church and state… but I digress.

This vortex looks like two cones that are connected by the tops and appear like an hourglass form with the top and bottom fanning out like a megaphone. Yet, once inside it takes on seeming infinite dimensions with all the rainbow-sparkled movement of fluid light tails. These waveforms were visible as they came into the center of the group, through the center, and releasing again on the other side. It is well known that our ascension process is primarily related to aligning with the pure energy of Creation in our bio-spiritual evolutionary pathway. Even within the point of light at the center of our Heart of Hearts, there is a doorway into the Void, also known as a Black Hole is cosmological terms.

This is our connection with the ONE, from whence all Creation manifests through light and sound. From this place we can see infinitely inward and infinitely outward simultaneously. The place of no beginning and no ending. The image below offers some resemblance.When the tape reached the end of the first side I reflected on what I had scene and thought that it would be beneficial to ask the others what their experience was before saying a word about mine. Often, we do not reflect with each other what our internal experiences are with meditative environments. Granted, the Ascended Masters have often said, ‘to know, to dare, to do, and to be silent.’

Well, this was because the experiences were so rare that when one would share, the energy would be disbursed by the disbelief of others. In this case, and others, we were paracelestparticipating in openness and devotion to the ONE. It felt appropriate to ask the others to share from that perspective. Although the language used (descriptive terms) was somewhat varied, the experience was definitely shared by all of us. I’ve been able to facilitate other group experiences with larger groups as well, using our music. The descriptions of the participants have been phenomenal to say the least. Oh, yes… I forgot to mention the music was created by Outcasts and Social Misfits, the guys I’ve played music with for over a decade. Here’s the CD that was eventually published.

The prevalent experience of the second side of the tape that we all related was of unfolding into winged creatures. The others saw themselves as Angels who gently surrounded the group with their wings as a sign of love and nurturing to one another. I, on the other hand, made the same gesture, yet I saw myself as a white dragon. I’ve been shown the reality of this in too many ways to mention here. Still, I’m just a human being with way too much outside the boxness to fit into many situations and ‘normal’ environments.

So, I tend to express myself with no regrets or thoughts of repercussions, acknowledging letting go of attachment to outcome. Granted, if I were in somebody else’s shoes, I’d probably have some major difficulties with my ‘story’ and potential benefit.The TRUTH IS LOVE… and waging war in righteousness is in process. This does not mean violence toward my fellowman. Just the opposite. We are being aligned now in order to take our rightful place among the Cosmic Order of Creation. This includes many worlds already, as we might view our visible light spectrum as one of these worlds, there are others visible through our inner sight.

In time, these will also be as visible as our current realm. Currently, our youth are already sensing these realms, causing major boredom in classrooms and aberrant behavior due to our lack of understanding this and providing them with relevant educational processes. We drug these same children to put the back into the ‘box’ that we’ve allowed ourselves to be contained in when they [children] were never meant to be in it in the first place. They have far more sensitivity and understanding of connectedness than most adults, yet we fail them miserably because we do not pay attention to their messages to us, consequently they become ‘labeled’ and put into various ‘programs’ to rehabilitate. Some just exit the ‘system’ altogether.

In Arizona alone, just last year, over 50% of the youth detained by police where NOT enrolled in school. The fact is- we have not habilitated them to begin with, nor ourselves for that matter. We need some methods to teach through holistic education, like Spectrum Academy might offer.Many are seeking understanding of the Nature of our Being in this period of our planetary evolution. The children aren’t the only ones that are having difficulty finding their ‘center.’ As those gather in devotion to this pure sharable energy, we begin to become aware of our ‘godhood’ as we gain awareness of additional levels of consciousness and their applications. I often speak of the ‘other’ 45 senses in the 90% of our brain that science has thought to be dormant (simple ratio of senses to brain capacity).

As complete Beings nothing is dormant, only our awareness of it. So these processes allow us to have direct experience of these realms of consciousness and subsequently makes them REAL to each of us. As we become aware of these realms, we also become aware of our individuation and ‘role’ within the overall scheme of Creation. We are ONE yet have perfect fractalization that allows us to ‘find’ our perfect place in both consciousness and physical creation. We all know that we each have a ‘Divine Purpose’ for which we spend countless amounts of time pondering in our quest to find connection to ALL THAT IS.

Imagine a high school with the mission to empower young men and women to achieve the awareness and implementation of their life’s purpose today. My partner actually teaches at one now, so things are looking up. Imagine this concept carried through a college or university environment. How about an entire village?

Consistent with this line of logic, and recognizing many are incarnating from ‘other’ realms now, there are those who are discovering and sharing this understanding and the methodologies to develop them within oneself. I AM one of those who has come to do this and more. I Am One of Many. We’ve all had to move beyond the Messianic Complex. Understanding that one can simultaneously incarnate as a planet and administrator (in times past) brings us a bit closure to realizing that the more we know the more our ignorance exponentiates.

As we release the fear that ignorance promotes, there are many new experiences of connectivity that become available. Resistance to it is truly futile as this growth and connectivity is imbedded within our natural evolutionary process. JJ Hurtak’s book, “The Keys of Enoch,” addresses this very point. Even when we can ‘hear’ the ‘white noise’ in the silence within, we can gently rest in the arms of the dragon as we descend beyond the sound. This, too, opens up worlds of wonder…WOW.

It is time we knew more of who and what we are. “The Urantia Book” provides some very in-depth explorations of the spiritual and material hierarchies of Creation. An open mind and heart with sincere questions can uncover truth beyond the imagination of most people. Books aren’t necessarily ‘the way’ as much as they are a ‘verification’ of what others have found in their unadulterated search. They approach it as a child. Truth will always be self-revealing and promotes unity of action toward demonstrable reflection in our outer reality.

Simply put… we live in harmony with each other and the planet. The example I have been given to share to illustrate this, and the development of the new world order unlike what you’ve heard about in the news, is the Genesis II Community that is an extension of Spectrum Academy. The concept is an extension of work begun with the UN with some encouragement from Winifred Barton, a dear and precious soul who is now in her 90th decade on Earth. Your gifts of L.O.V.E. (limitless oscillating vibrational energy) are always appreciated and will reflect in glorious ways in your own lives.

Industry Comparison

wiz1Industry Comparison

E-business has become a burgeoning field of interaction. Technology breakthroughs have enabled a virtual global market where nearly anyone can offer their wares to an ever-expanding market. Covered within the text are various business models that exist today. They include: Brokerage Model; Advertising Model; Infomediary Model; Merchant Model Virtual; Manufacturer Model; Affiliate Model; Community Model; Subscription Model; and the Utility Model. For the purpose of this paper a hybrid model will be the focus of discussion, delving into the realms of evolving educational delivery systems made possible through e-business.

Community Technology Centers

A Community Technology Center (CTC) is where people get free or low-cost access to computers and computer-related technology, such as the Internet, together with learning opportunities that encourage exploration and discovery. CTCs also provide low-income areas with job-development opportunities, access to social service information, community outreach programs, and the ability to create collaborative alliances with public and private organizations as well as other community members.

Current management philosophy calls for empowering organized skills sets toward completion of goals and objectives. The ‘No Child Left Behind’ scenario invites the community to reclaim their youth through a reformation of social consciousness. Collaborative alliances share responsibility and capitalize on effective use of time, materials, and resources in meeting collective goals. Partnerships create shared ownership of vision and distribute responsibility of task completion in the achievement of the mission, utilizing both click and brick assets. Socially responsible action in creating low-cost solutions for educational content and delivery to the end user creates community utility. Strategic use of performance measurement improves key areas of management concerns, such as resource allocation, organizational learning, internal processes, and external accountability. Sharing resources empowers synergistic capacity building of each participant and strengthens overall performance.

Web-based Delivery Systems

The area of click vs. brick creates utility through the effective use of communication networks and the availability of curriculum bundles for youth and adult learners. Bundles contain a group of programs selected to cover a wide variety of teaching activities proven effective in increasing students’ skills. Stand-alone modules cover specific academic or work-related subject areas that compliment individualized student curriculum. Professional services utilize proven expertise in virtually all areas of educational administration including curriculum design and implementation, grant writing, resource development, and technology. Training and development programs tailored to meet organizational needs are offered through on-site or distance learning delivery methods. Individual programs for professional career enhancement, deliverable to the desktop, provide continuing education requirements and opportunities for community-based leadership development strategies.

Collaborative Alliances

A data center acquired for multiple-uses has many potential benefits, especially in the growing area of charter schools. Low-cost space for server equipment, with 24/7 support, maximizes data delivery and storage costs while protecting investments. ASP is a unified web development platform providing necessary services for data-on-demand applications such as distance learning programs or on-line testing. Increased bandwidth capacity through the data center means better delivery/response time for the end user, which reduces frustration and increases productivity. Charter schools benefit from cost-saving e-mail and web hosting, curriculum delivery and storage, professional services, and technical support. Small businesses, potentially developed by students and/or staff need similar services to manage costs and maintain effective delivery of products and services.

Capacity Building

Capacity building engages public and private entities toward collaborative partnerships to deliver products and services to specific populations. The data center needs to be equipped with cabling and space for server racks, T-1 lines and/or DS3 fiber optic cables with auxiliary power supply to ensure reliable service. Centralized technology service and storage invites industry partnerships to further develop state-of-the-art delivery systems, classroom integration and participation, and e-deliverable products and services to the public, such as for home schooling families. Capacity building of professional resources and services empowers greater efficiency of human resources and increased effectiveness of human action. Educational resources become more affordable to individual sites through collective acquisition and bargaining power. Turn-key educational capacity and business services offer a window of opportunity to would-be entrepreneurs concerned about the future of education and business practices.

Future Development

Collective purchased curriculum packages (bundled or stand-alone) will offer educational programs at greatly reduced costs, increasing access to low-income areas. Increases opportunity for teacher-developed curricula to be made available to large numbers and remunerate the creator in the process. Housing or linking (from main page) a selection of distance learning programs increases exposure and income for educational institutions and development companies offering programs. Community Technology Centers, developed as partnerships with schools, provide additional capacity for adult education programs for acquiring a GED or college credits toward degree programs. Community-based educational programs empower community leaders and members to effectively develop and manage community affairs. Access to social services electronic programs increases quality of life for low-income community members.

CTC Opportunities

Charter schools that choose to work together can reduce curriculum expenses while increasing teacher effectiveness, which means more time with the students and easier lesson planning.  Web hosting services, along with e-mail, provide schools greater exposure with less cost. Internet content filters installed on-site keeps clean content delivery for students and teachers. Non-Profit Organizations benefit through reduced costs, greater accessibility of Internet or Web-related services, while building capacity in the development of the network of organizations and service to the community. Service Organizations can offer assistance, information, and programs while establishing growth in their community network. Discussions, forums, web-based workshops, are made available with ease of data management.

Collaborative alliances and partnerships provide greater ease of focused funding while building capacity throughout the Network of Providers/Users. Groups, both youth and adult, can access ‘clean’ information, communicate with other groups, and provide members with selected products and services specific to their areas of focus. The CTC data center allows organized curriculum delivery through e-business technology while minimizing costs for upgrades of software and hardware. Parents who choose to homeschool their children can have up-to-date State Standard-based curriculum delivered to their home computer at affordable costs. Parents can also refresh themselves on educational processes to help facilitate their student’s learning. Meanwhile, charter schools can also utilize the cost-effectiveness of group purchasing of materials through the CTC’s variety of resources made possible by the collaborative alliances.


Cooperation creates open environments for growth and success through inclusion of the best of each organization’s expertise.
