These are the original LeWave T’s.
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
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.
Background on WeMe (App-Suite) and The EvoRevo!
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.

As soon as I decide to purchase that “Space Upgrade” from WordPress…
(have to buy it to upload any audio files)
…you will be able to beebop to some fun toonz ’bout LeToonz.
In the meantime you can hear two of the songs we created here:
A Light Poppish toon: http://letoonz.com/media/track01.mp3
A Light Rappish Toon: http://letoonz.com/media/track02.mp3
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 act as cartoon images illustrating the Human Evolution LeModel variables)
This was our first toy-set prototype for the LeToonz/LeWave Characters.
Who are these guys??? From Left to Right on LeWave we have…
Flo …is 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.
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.
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.
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:
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
Here are some other views of the LeToonz Desktop ToySet:
By living the characters of LeToonz we are moving towards the process of Be-ing It. Be-It means to know your gifts and to live your gifts, whatever they may be. To Be-It in life means that you are living your true SELF and applying that natural and real SELF with intention, by-design and On-Purpose in everyday life. Be-It is the beautiful integration of all LeToonz processes.
Be-It uses the market and is not controlled by it. Buying clothes at The Gap or any other popular store occurs as a result of knowing how to choose the right clothing for you. Everything in life is based on one’s essence, individuality and knowledge of SELF.
Be-It means living on Purpose. You have no choice. If you live your gifts and are conscious of your dispositions then you will work at bringing them to light and maturing them. In this way one has no choice but to live a life with and on Purpose.
Be-It is living your nature. Finding out what makes you tick, all the little and big things that come innately to us and to what degree. There are very few of us that are meant to be good at only one thing. Unfortunately our society has not recognized this. This will change. Some people, for instance are great communicators and that is what they do very well. These people are able to articulate on just about every topic under the sun even though they may not be able to actually do the things they talk about very well. Society for the most part does not value these people. These people are sales people.
While BeingIt is uncommon today for the masses it is what we are most attracted to. We want to be around anyone who is being it and is recognized for BeingIt in life. We want to be around athletes and opera singers, comedians and writers, artists of statue and social personalities in general. Unfortunately, many of these people are Being It in terms of what our culture or market deems valuable… for some, these Beings are Being It as something that is popular only because we are not. Or, in other words, have become astronomically valued in myriad forms because as a culture and a people we are not BeingIt. A good determination of this dysfunctional cultural phenomenon around the world would be found by comparing the progression of skyrocketing salaries of professional athletes and any countries skyrocketing state of immuno-dysfunction as a whole. Our bet is that the correlation is inverse and significant statistically or you can use your intuition, Ah-Ha! Does the term “get a life.” seem appropriate?
BeingIt in life is any and every government’s true objective yet can you imagine a world where people are all living and doing what it is they do best? Talk about upheaval, change and disruption. The question is, do we have a choice?
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.
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.
Let Go is the stopping of all AY activities. LG is no thought. LG is no Feeling. LG is mindlessness. LG is a moment or a window that allows something to come through. Typically LG allows insights or Ah-Ha’s to come to us. LG can happen physically, psychologically or spiritually or a mix of all three. The ways we LG are as varied as each and every one of us is varied. We can LG as individuals or LG in groups of any rank or size. LG is hard for adults to do.
LG is not giving up or quitting. Quite the opposite, LG allows us to move forward and beyond where we are by letting go to the next thing. LG can happen in the Head but not in the Heart or vice versa. For example, I can lose weight and know intellectually that I’m 50- pounds lighter but still feel and believe that I am a fat person!. In this scenario I have not let Go as a Whole.
LG happens all the time but some people find it very difficult to do. Others tend to be predominantly LG and need the rest of the LeToonz facets to be bring balance into their lives. LG people often keep others from getting stuck on something. Let Go might seem like a 60’s kinda’ character but it’s not as simple as that.
LG can happen in a split second. LG may take no time at all to happen or may happen over a long period of time. The time it takes to stop feeling the pain of losing someone special in our lives is an example of this. We can LG slowly about something in our hearts while we LG about that same thing quickly in our Minds. LG is not fully complete until the Head and Heart have LG together. Most often LG happens so fast we can say it occurs as a moment in time. Like having just one, or a bunch, or a whole string of Ah-Ha’s while taking a shower, glancing out a window, or while taking a walk in the woods. We LG many, many times without sensing the time it takes to LG one bit. And with that much LettingGo and Ah-Ha’s happening time just flies. Interesting isn’t it. Like AskYouself, LetGo or Letting Go, can happen in the Head or the Heart or both at Once. We call the both at once event The Whole. LG comes after AY and before Ah-Ha on Le Wave. LG allows Ah-Ha or insight to happen. Without LG we can’t learn or evolve into the 6W’s – The Who and What, When and Where and How and WHY of each and every one of us whether that US is ourselves, our families, friends, teams or group of any size. That size includes the world by the way.
