One of the most amazing things about human beings is the way we, as both individuals and organizations, develop dialectically. That is to say: every geniune moment of growth or transformation happens in or around conversation, and every genuine conversation evokes transformation.
The reason you have to tell people today to put their phone away and engage in a given moment is because what happens online isn't usually conversation so much as a lot of shouting into a shared space.
A Hitchhiker's Guide to Reality is here to change that. We provide a gamified conversation platform so instead of allowing our technosocial tools to distance us from a moment we can use those tools to deepen our engagement in that moment. We also designed a robust intersectional survey to visualize more clearly what “better" looks like for your community and to help you map your progress in that direction.
One of the preeminent difficulties with most developmental models is that they have a goal in mind, some destination for the developmental journey. This is a problem because if people come from different places they will need different journeys to arrive at the same destination, and arriving at the same destination isn't even the goal.
A Hitchhiker's Guide to Reality embraces that everyone comes from a distinct place, and that everyone is becoming a distinct individual. We can still share our journeys as long as we are going in the same direction for a little while.
Our differences aren't merely acceptable, but essential, as our different perspectives are the fuel that drives the conversation that carries us all forward.
One thing that we do know about hitchhiking, though, is that it requires a scary amount of trust. If you are really ready to stop lecturing or dictating to your community and start having powerful collaborative conversations, then A Hitchhiker's Guide to Reality will be there to help.
