KnoWear – Fashions that Teach Us about our Self

These are the original LeWave T’s. 

The LeToonz character illustrations of each LeWave phrase (variables as universal yet YOUnique individual “states” and “processes”) had yet to be created. The original LeToonz T’s were designed as a set of four T-shirts.  Each showed a portion of the LeWave with the description of the state or process variable (LeModel). The four states or process variables described on the T’s are:
AskYourSelf – Let-Go – Ah-Ha & Do-It
 There were no character illustrations yet, just the LeModel phrases and the LeWave they lived within.

LeToonz Interactive T's - Early Version 1990-ish

As you can see the T’s come together to form a wave.  The wave only comes together if those wearing the T’s stand side by side in the correct order – this order is dictated by LeModel – the Learning-to-Evolve Model.
Each phrase means something special on its own and means even more when it is connected to the others (https://letoonz.wordpress.com/2009/10/09/letoonz-in-general/). There were also golden ties at the bottom on both sides of the T’2 so you could playfully and literally attach yourself to the next T and create LeWave (a sign-wave which was the basic unit of LeCozmos) across the front of the T’s.

The First Ah-Ha T-Shirt

The next LeWave shirts were hand made.  We used rich colors  in raw silk and choose a complex, multi-colored fabric to depict each of the LeWave segments for each of the LeWave phrases. The phrases themselves are appliqued on the back and sleeves of the tops.  The lettering of Asian form in large bold golden hues

High Fashion LeWave Tops - 2nd Generation

These tops were more abstract with the LeWave segment split and a golden orb sewn into the space of the split of each shirts LeWave segment… This is the Ah-Ha top.

The Little golden orb, pictured here represents another aspect of LeCozmos – The center of the Toroid (donut shape)

The LeWave high-fashion tops set did not allow for LeWave to come together in the front. They were more individual, more YOUnique unto themselves as pieces of LeWave, as significant and representative “state” and “process” facets of one’s Self.

Here is a picture of the “AskYourSelf” LeWave Top… the composition shows a child reading… no doubt “asking her self” or thinking and processing (cognition) and in her own YOUnique way at this very moment.

In wearing LeFashions the user (as Wearer)  is made more conscious of these – universal yet unique to them – “states” and “processes.” The Wearer is, in effect, observing themselves experiencing these states and processes, and in so doing becomes specifically conscious of them – the Wearer learns about learning, they are meta-learning. 

As LeWave (via LeFashions, etc) is designed to focus the Wearer on the existence and value of their innate gifts and dispositions, they then take the next step, beyond meta-learning, and enter a higher, fuller, deeper experiential realm, doing so quite naturally – the conscious realm of meta-evolution.

The "AskYourSelf" High Fashion Top "In Action"

Remember this is only the LeFashion Tops. You have to keep in mind that LeFashions are a piece a broad matrix of interconnected product categories. The whole LeCompany Product system includes a full spectrum of other products. The key is to make the LeWave world, its applied meaning, come alive in the mind – in the actions, perceptions and memories – of the user.  So this is why we also have LeSongs, LeApps, LeToys, LeGames, LeTV, LeWeb, etc… LeCompany is introducing, through cool products a “Way-of-Thinking” about our Self; about our YOUniqueness; about of our personal and natural Significance as individuals and about our Life-Purpose founded on that significant YOUniqueness; about what authentic and powerfully creative and productive (and loving) relationships with others really looks and feels like; about the real, vibrant and just as unique experiences of Human Synergy (an ecology-of-mind).

WeMe // App-Suite // the deeper story

Background on WeMe (App-Suite) and The EvoRevo!

Ah-Ha Tracker-SML 

 
WeMe is about the “we” of society as in “us” as a system of semi-interconnected human beings and the ”me” of society as in “the individual”, and why and how they merge and combine and produce relationships of varying degrees of human synergy, e.g. productivity, unity, creativity output, etc.  It is also about the WeMe as a naturally and globally evolving system of individuals and how we can affect the quality and speed of that waiting evolution-revolution.
 
 Flo Tracker-SML
 
WeMe is about a new form of “Self” representation that is Raw, Direct and Natural. 
 
The more powerful result of a WeMe revolution will be built, initially, using raw data concerning insight or ah-ha events which occur throughout our daily lives. These insights or ah-ha events, and the patterns-of-ah-ha’s that emerge, will be easily recorded, automatically uploaded and dynamically illustrated, from the little ones to the big Eureka’s – while we work, play, walk, talk, wherever we are, whoever we are with face-to-face or virtually.
 
The Diary of Ah-Ha-SML
Most importantly, WeMe is about recording and representing the ”patterns of our insights” over time and then correlating these patterns to what is going on within us and around us… our context, our actions, our relationships and even our thinking… over time. It is our patterns of insight, or what I call our Path-of-Ah-Ha, that we can get a clearer and true picture of our living and evolving Self.
 
Oh, did I not mention that WeMe is about coming to know and see and better live our innate gifts and dispositions, and from this, our TruSelf.  This is the real purpose to being able to actually see and come to understand the nature and patterns of your insights over time.
 
WeMe is all a piece of the rest of GET and LeCompany and LeToonz and The Library-of-Masters and The ArteFactory and SynchroNet and The Ageless Child (See: G.E.T. TheVision).  WeMe is simply the first market space I think I can begin to make all the rest come alive and into the market.
 
Ah-Ha
WeMe records our ah-ha’s right from our blackberry or iphone or palm or laptop.  These Ah-Ha (and Flo) tracking uploads are the first step towards a direct measure of your daily growth and, over time, patterns of that growth and development and, over a bit more time, your personal evolution.
 
Remember if it’s about Me then it is also about We, or as it applies to the individual it then also applies to clusters of individuals, and larger clusters and so on until it can represent a dynamic picture of the learning and the evolution of our society as a whole.

In the early 90′s I brought these personal and organizational learning and evolution measurement and representation software ideas into the market to test the water. As organizational IT solutions back then, and for the home pc children and tween market, the WeMe suite of software consisted of: The Ah-Ha Traker, The Flo-Traker and The Diary-(Path)-of-Ah-Ha as seen in the above CD package illustrations.  That was over 15 years ago. At this time I spelled “Tracker” without the “c” as “Traker” to make the phrase more unique.

The idea then was that people would be interested in visual representations, and other cool data visualizations, related to their personal (and human systems as org’s) growth, learning and evolution, and how this life process co-related to other Hu’s on the planet. Obviously, I was too early.  Not so today I’m hoping.

Ah-Ha /Flo Tracking is only the beginning.

If you have seen and read about my LeToonz characters and the topological world they live in called LeCozmos, you will know that ah-ha and flo are 2 of a family of  6 (and more coming) processes or states represented in the evolutionary model or ontology of mine.  In knowing this then you know that this is just the beginning and that many, many versions will be waiting to follow after this first version of WeMe which will be using Ah-Ha and Flo only. In other words, we have a very full pipeline of products to come and it is, and always has been, a matter of picking the best product-place and time to begin, which I think is WeMe and now… and then to pay very close attention to our human users.

LeWatches_LeToonz on Watches for The World

 

LeWatch - Child and Parent Sets

We all have natural gifts and dispositions. We are all truly unique and significant human beings. Our natural gifts and dispositions are what (or should) motivates each of us to do the work we are born to do; to chose the career and relationships that postively affect our most natural life pursuits. 

In doing the life work we are born to do we come to know own true Purpose in life.

LeWatches with the compliment of other LeToonz products and mobile applications are all designed to help each of us to discover and then more consciously live our natural, gift-guided destiny’s.

Each watch represents one of the LeToonz characters with each character helping you discover how each of these most basic of human “processes and states” lives within each of us.

 Let your Self and the world know what makes you YOUnique! These LeToonz watches will be available as a set or individually.  They also make great gifts for those in your life who have a desire to discover what makes them truly YOUnique.

Pick the watch that reflects how you’re feeling on any given day or time of day; whether you’re in your uniquely “AskYourSelf” psychological space; if you’re feeling or sensing you need to do some “LettingGo” or are a LetGo kind of person.  If you are feeling like you have “Ah-Ha’s” ready to come, or are in the middle of your creative expression cycle, or just want to remind yourself that you are a predominantly “Ah-Ha” kind of human being.

Each LeWatch informs others, yourself; they remind us to focus on one of these or all of these universal yet unique-to-each of us processes and states.  

LeWatches and entire LeProducts universe and LeApps (mobile applications) are the first products of their kind.

They are designed to help us discover through direct reflection how these most basic processes and states happen to each of us unique. 

The more you know how you AsYouSelf, LetGo, have Ah-Ha’s, DoIt and Flo, the sooner you discover how you are meant to BeIt in your life.

These musical efforts came about almost 16 years ago… 13 years before Oprah (HARPO Studios) and Mutual of Omaha got into legal battles over who owned the phrase Aha-Moment… ‘course no one does but you and I.

 

Our original Ah-Ha and his LeToonz Family has been waiting around since 1986 for you to notice they were special.

LeToonz Product – Kids 8-13 – LeWave w/Removeable LeToonz Characters and Embedded Songs

LeToonz_Desktop Character Set with Song-Chips for each Character

This was our first toy-set prototype for the LeToonz/LeWave Characters. 

Who are these guys??? From Left to Right on LeWave we have…

 Ask YourSelf – LetGo – Ah-Ha… DoIt (orange springy character)

Flois in blue below left

BeIt  …the crazy multi-colored character below right and with the donut (toroid) around its waist. We also have ReMote (not pictured here and  Synchro, who will be joing us later.)

Each LeToonz character helps make us aware and conscious of certain universally fundamental personal “processes or states” that each and every human being on the planet experiences “YOUniquely” in their daily lives. 

The power and purpose of these LeToonz characters is that they help us discover how these universal processes and states exist uniquely within each and every one of us. 

Yes, LeToonz is all about the discovery, and then the evolution, of that which makes us YOUnique; of that which helps us value our innate and natural Gifts and dispositions; of that which will come to define our true purpose in life.  

LeToonz helps answer these life critical questions – the When, Where, What, Why and so-what of: how we uniquely Ask Our Self’s; how we uniquely have Ah-Ha’s; how we uniquely Let-Go; how we uniquely Do-IT; how we experience Flo; and ultimately how we YOUniquely Be-It in life. 

LeToonz characters operate within a very dynamic geometric environment.  This geometric environment is referred to as a topology.  This special topology our LeToonz characters live, and naturally operate within, we call LeCozmos – as the shapes in LeCozmos look like something that we would see in space, in the cosmos. LeCozmos, over time and working with LeToonz in our daily life, begin to and ultimately form a very beautful and very complex image… a personal mirror of our natural and YOUnique Self. A Self evolving over time.

The LeCozmos topological components can be seen throughout LeWave – the big sign wave the LeToonz are riding upon – along with the LeWave sign-wave we have a Mobius strip, and a single toroid (donut) and finally donuts within donuts or nested-toroids. As you can see the Mobius strip and the single toroid or donut, are what is holding LeWave up in the air in the above product rendering. 

LeWatches - The Set

For reference, whenever you see the “Le” in front of something in this universe it stands for “Learning-to-Evolve.” The same applies to other products and catgeories of stuff such as LeMusic, LeSongs, LeDances, LeFashions, LeWatches, LeCompany… LeToonz, LeWave, LeModel… you get the idea.

The more complex nested-toroids act as the pedestals for each of the 6 LeToonz characters. The Be-It character, found in the lower right of the set, also has a nested-toroid around its waist.  

LeToonz_ToySet_Nested-Toroid Pedestal

Nothing about this system of topological images and characters is frivilous, all aspects have meaning as they illustrate and make LeModel come alive in our lives – LeModel, The Learning-to-Evolve model. 

LeModel is a very complex, fun yet a complete toolkit that will assist anyone in the process of their natural and innate Self-Discovery, Personal Evolution, organic Self Value, sense of Self-Significance, and Gift-Based Life-Purpose.

Speaking of meaning and value packed and less than frivolous… when the LeToonz character “Be-It” spreads its hands and legs wide it forms a chalice shape (See below images). The chalice shape is also that shape made by two spirals that connect at their tips; one coming from the top-down and the other from the bottom-up. Where they touch is the same place as Be-It’s waist.

LeToonz_Be-It_Netsed-Toroid around It's Waist

Interestingly, the chalice shape made by these spirals is the reverse-space of the toroids… in other words, if you have a chalice and take the wider cone ends allow them to expand they will ultimately fold over, around and connect to the cone surface of the other spiral… this would form the shape of a donut or toroid. 

The chalice spirals are much like a worm hole, and are found, like the toroid, in many aspects of nature working together, interacting dynamically and as one system of moving energy… like us 🙂 

Chalice, Dual-Spirals, Toroids illustrations in our world:

Chalics Formed by Dual-Spirals and Toroid Naturally Unfolds as Reverse-Space

This toy set has embedded songs and song-bites for each character.  These are activated when a LeToonz character is taken out of its LeWave place.  Once removed one of 5-7 lyrical songs, or song-bites are played, with each song speaking to the meaning of each character and how it applies to the “user.”  So, for example if you picked up Ah-Ha from it’s position on LeWave you might hear something like this: http://www.letoonz.com/media/track02.mp3

FLO _ LeToonz Character

FLOAbridged Version

Flo is the experience of time compression. A day spent walking in the woods will pass more quickly and easily then one spent sitting on the living room couch. A phone conversation with an old friend may seem like just a couple of minutes when its actually been an hour. This is Flo.  A long bus ride without a good book or conversation will usually prove to have a lack of Flo.


Unabridged Version

Ah, Flo.  Speaking of athletes.  There has been no other group in our world that has garnered more recognition concerning this aspect of LeToonz.  For the world of sports or any artist by reasonable extension, Flo is short for “being in the zone”.  It is a term that inspired the content for an entire book by a famous University of Chicago professor.  Many of us can relate to Flo in terms of “time flying.” Or the common idiom “Time flies when you’re having fun.”

Good movies will Flo. If it doesn’t it doesn’t make money.  Moviemakers are very conscious of this.  Our experience in a mall, especially with children, needs to Flo otherwise it starts to fell like a very, very long time. Developers know this and have made a concerted effort to make us feel more FLO while we shop so we will spend more time and money. Have you noticed that shopping malls have become huge entertainment Flo centers with movie theatres, demonstrations events and every kind of fast food under the sun?  Its all been designed to increase the amount of Flo you experience and decrease you desire to go home or shop somewhere else. Designing for Flo has become an unconscious theme in the design of everything people interact with today – from buildings plans to vending machines, to video games to dentist’s offices. They are all designed to increase Flo because Flo is frictionless, and being  in Flo compresses our sense of time.

The most important thing about Flo is that it can occur with and without insight or Ah-Ha’s.  Couch Potatoes enjoy watching a lot of TV but are they experiencing any new learning or having Ah-ha’s? So obviously it is where we have Flo and Ah-Ha that we need to find.  Where we have Flo without Ah-Ha’s is sure to be an environment or experience that will lead to a bad taste in the mouth over time if not immediately.  The whole concept behind entertainment is moving towards creating a Flo experience that takes our minds out of the equation for a while.  That deliberately stops the Asking Ourselves or the non-purposeful Ah-Ha’s of our daily lives from happening. 

We can LetGo and Flo.  We can experience Flo while we focus and concentrate on a thing while Asking Ourselves, and we certainly know about the Flo that is conjoined with DoingIt.  Beware of the Flo without Ah-Ha’s for that is the insidious climate of life we are living.

We all seek to be in Flo in life more often that not.  What we need to do is to be in Flo. Or have Flo experiences that are occurring while in pursuit of our gifts, innate dispositions, nature and SELF.  Any other kind of Flo is maladaptive and there is plenty of that to be found, way too much.


DoIt or Do It _ LeToonz Character

DoitAbridged Version

DoIt or DI is simply action in the physical domain.  It is hammering away at nails all day, getting on the phone to call a teacher about a child, sneezing, talking, smiling, lifting a box or a baby and so on.  All manner of physical action is what DI is about. DoIt can be inspiring and DoIt can be repetitive as well.

 Unabridged Version

The 3 Dimensions of LeToonz also apply to DoIT.  We can DI as a function of purely cognitive, visceral or spiritual basis.  We DI whether it is the right thing to do or not.  We DI unconsciously and without understanding of what drives us.  Even if we do have understanding, it may be purely intellectual and not deep enough to change the direction or pattern of DoIt.. We know that smoking, for instance, is not healthy for us but we continue to smoke and DoIt until it becomes a habit and an addiction for us.

DoIt occurs without AskingOurselves.  Your parents probably warned you to “look before you leap” and that it is far wiser to contemplate and plan your steps along the way before actually taking these steps.  Sound advice that many children completely ignore. Of course this kind of DI that doesn’t ask questions first is not exclusive to the inexperienced.

Many adults themselves are “Doing” a career or job that has very little to do with who they really are or what they really should be doing based on their natural abilities, likes and dislikes.  Asking Ourselves in this situation may even help us justify our choice using survival and success as very good reasons for personal sacrifice. It is important to note that the Ah-Ha’s we have while we are Asking Ourselves, Letting Go and Doing in this type of situation is all cognitive and disconnected from our innately disposed self.  Thus, we DoIt without regard to our SELF.  This life pattern applies to a vast majority.  It is dysfunctional and it is deadly for our culture and world as a whole.

Many people will continue to DoIt without asking themselves why any more because the Ah-Ha’s that will follow and the Letting Go that occurs and the Doing what they’re supposed to be doing in life will necessitate making  changes that are too uncomfortable to make.  So they continue to keep on Doing It is spite of the fact they are unhappy and living without Ah-Ha’s.

On the other hand there are people who DoIt gloriously and live their lives doing what it is they like or love to do.  These folks are the lucky ones . . …or maybe they’re just the smart ones who took the time to ask themselves, listened to the answers and took the actions necessary to see their ideas come to fruition in life.
