Mind Meld Log, stardate 220708 (8Jul22)

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.

HELD: Stardate 220708, 10:00PM 3RG/SLT
LOCATION: Denkiri Cafe, UF Starfleet Astraios.
ATTENDANCE: 8


TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION:
"...individuals make the future, and they do it by imagining that things can be different." (Neil Gaiman)

We discussed:
- the problem with idealist thinking is it has no immediate effect
- all political and social thinking is short term
- everything is targeted so that you have less imagination and less autonomy in the so-called free society
- the system wants you to struggle
- I think that you have to be the change you want to see and maybe others will change too and it ripples out -- and that starts with being kind and decent and respectful and all that. To people, animals and the planet

"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."

Next 'Mind Meld's' will be held:
Tue July 19th @ 10:30am SLT/3RG.
Fri July 22nd, 1000PM/2200hrs SLT/3RG.

All are welcome to attend.
