'Mind Meld' - 220426

The Denkiri Centre for Creativity was established on Astraios Prime in the early months of 2422 as a means of outreach to the scientists, philosophers, artists, engineers, and designers who dwell in the Gamma Quadrant. Its philosophy was inspired by the Terran author Gene Roddenberry, who had, in the 20th and 21st Century, envisioned a universe in which sentient life forms would gather to share knowledge, conduct research, and improve the quality of life for all. The Centre hosts brainstorming sessions, organizes an open lecture series, manages artistic exhibits, conducts tours, and works to enhance the immersive environment through building, scripting and developing knowledge of the sector and quadrant.

ACTIVITY: 'Mind Meld' brainstorming session
HELD: Stardate 220426 , 10:30am/1030hrs 3RG/SLT
LOCATION: Colony Cafe, UF Starfleet Astraios.

First 'Mind Meld' brainstorming session held stardate 220426 at UF Starfleet Astraios. A total of twelve people joined in a lively discussion about Space, Creativity, Science and Community.

"Mild Meld is a meeting of minds, a playful tossing out of ideas, silly and serious... the wilder the better... no idea is criticized. We may find that that wild idea and this crazy thought meld together into something really cool, or we may just have collective coffee and rambunctious fellowship. It's all good."

As Gene Roddenberry said:
"To be different is not necessarily to be ugly; to have a different idea is not necessarily to be wrong. The worst possible thing is for all of us to begin to look and talk and act and think alike."

Opening discussion...
- how did humans move from where we are now to the Federation ideals?
- how can WE move from here to Federation ideals, making a better world?
- Open Sim is like a neighbourhood, good relationships matter
- empathy, compassion & respect works

How can we reach out more effectively to the hypergrid?
- OpenSimWorld, post events there
- creativity is key, in Open Sim you have to make what you want or need, we all have to improvise and problem solve, that is part of the character of people in OS. A creative essence.
- have an 'outgoing' group that visits other places... to make friends (but remember advertising other grids/events would be frowned on)
- tours of 3RG & Astraios are starting this Saturday
- we have a working translator
- put an advert in the event venue
- we are getting a sign at 3RG welcome
- diversity is key... guest speakers, performers, artists and diverse events

"'Mind melt' might also be an appropriate term in some instances..."
Adjourned with much laughter to attend 'Starfleet Boogie' at the 'Shooting Star.'
