IN THE AUTUMN OF 1989 THOMAS HEIDE HAD AN INSIGHT THAT LED TO THE DANISH SCHOOL OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND CONCEPTUAL INNOVATION, KAOSPILOT. THE INSIGHT AND THE SCHOOL WAS THE FIRST MANIFESTATION OF A SERIES OF INTUITIVE INTERVENTIONS BY THOMAS HEIDE PREPARING HUMANKIND TO LEAVE BEHIND SPACE-TIME AS THE ONLY POSSIBLE LOGICAL CONTEXT FOR LIFE AND PROBLEM-SOLVING. IN 2016 THE PREPARATIONS WERE FINALIZED WITH AN ARTIFACT WITH THE POWER TO OPEN HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS TO ITS UNLIMITED APPLICATION AS A CREATOR OF REALITY UNDERSTOOD AS CHANGE. THE ARTIFACT SYMBOLICALLY OBJECTIFIES THE TWO EVENT HORIZONS DEFINING AND ENCLOSING THE EXTREME BORDERS OF EXPERIENCE AS A SCALE EXPRESSING SHIFTING MIXES OF FLUIDITY AND SOLIDITY. THIS WEBSITE IS THE SOURCE-CODE EMBEDDED IN THE ARTIFACT.
As proposed by Danish philosopher Thomas Heide
All human beings share the ability to experience change as something solid. This is a common denominator we can use as a universal point of reference for communication when we find ourselves in a context without stable, sustainable and unifying objective pointers; when we pass the threshold between locality and globality.
As the world becomes smaller, the number of possible objective pointers increases. The more people engaged in defining the content and borders of reality, the less certain these, the content and borders of reality, become. When the content and borders of reality are no longer dependable as objective pointers the rules of the game have changed and a replacement of objective pointers as the governing principle of communication must be provided. The only thing human beings have in common when the validity of objective pointers is disrupted is the ability to experience change. When the world was local, we could depend on objective pointers to sustain ordered reality. In a global world, change experience itself is this order, or the new governing principle of communication as the universal point of reference. Hence, change experience is THE COMMON DENOMINATOR. In the form of an equation, THE COMMON DENOMINATOR expresses the ability of human beings to experience change as something solid and the transformation of individual psychology (local presence) into field psychology (omnipresence) as the new analytical approach to problem-solving:
(X ≠ X) = (X = X)
The equation of change experience is THE COMMON DENOMINATOR of globality objectified.
The collected works of Thomas Heide is available in the form of a book, “Technical documentation for and advanced reference guide to the equation of change experience”, which can be downloaded for free here:
A video in which Thomas Heide introduces the basic concepts of his philosophy is available here.
A video-series, in which the principles of the philosophy is unfolded further, is available here:
For Danish speaking readers, a brief introduction to kaos philosophy is available here:
And for those (Danish speaking) interested in the thoughtprocesses that led Thomas Heide away from university philosophy and sparked his search for a governing principle outside the history of known academics, his original set of flow-notes from 2010 are available here .
THE HOMECOMING GREETING
THE EQUATION OF CHANGE EXPERIENCE IS (X ≠ X) = (X = X)
YOU ARE BOTH THAT, WHICH IS NOT ITSELF AND THAT, WHICH IS ITSELF
THE RANGE AND EFFECT OF YOUR ACTIONS ARE INVERSELY PROPORTIONAL WITH THE DISTANCE BETWEEN WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS IS OUTSIDE OF THE UNIVERSE
YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS IS IN YOUR BODY, WHICH IS INSIDE THE UNIVERSE
THIS IS THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE
ON THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE YOU CAN MEET YOURSELF AS CONSCIUSNESS
ON THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS CAN MEET ITSELF AS CONSCIOUSNESS IN A BODY
YOU ARE YOUR BEST WHEN YOU ARE BOTH THAT, WHICH IS NOT ITSELF AND THAT, WHICH IS ITSELF
YOU ARE YOUR BEST WHEN YOU WALK ON THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE
YOU ARE YOUR BEST WHEN YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE
THIS IS YOUR SLIDE RULE

REFERENCE GUIDE TO THE EQUATION OF CHANGE EXPERIENCE:
To get a hands on feel of the basics of Thomas Heide’s metaphysics of learning by doing, a series of 3 web workshops (drafts) including slides and skill chart is now available at:
For live workshops please contact the philosopher.
The genius box is a multileveled explorative journey into the paradoxical (genius) ability of all human beings (and possibly all that lives) to create and sustain correspondence between experiences, intentions and actions in a fluctuating universe without objective pointers, i.e. chaos.
The genius box in its totality aims at proving that we can interpret simultaneously ourselves (and possibly all that lives) as a function of the universe and the universe as a function of the above mentioned paradoxical (genius) ability of all human beings (and possibly all that lives) and that this interpretation is the most fundamental learning to be deducted from intentional action based on the experience of change.
It is my hope that the genius box will be of benefit to anyone interested in investigating the metaphysics of learning by doing.
All written material in the genius box is available to study, download and share on www.byebyespacetime.com.
