I hypothesize that individuals and organizations may create enriched realities and reinvent themselves in today’s world. The evolution of consciousness is the first step to achieve this important goal. The second step is to comprehend and utilize “the forces” of the system: power, knowledge, ethics, needs, and technology to create a new reality. I also propose a methodology to measure, through the analysis of specific situations, how a new reality may transcend new levels of complexity. This methodology might help us comprehend the process of creation and transformation of complex systems.
Key Words: fiction, system forces, evolution of consciousness, transcendence.
New levels of awareness appear to lead organizational evolution and create enhanced discourses that shape personal and institutional realities. Visionaries, individuals with a higher level of consciousness, have the responsibility to provide guidance and to support new ideas that can re-author impoverished fictions. These visionaries analyze organizational strategies and identify whether these strategies repress or contribute to the evolution of organizational systems.
Through fiction, organizations and individuals envision their own metamorphosis to adapt themselves to changing organizational environments, and strive to become the personal or organizational personae projected in the fiction.
In order to influence realities we need to understand the levels of forces we use to create fictions. These forces that affect our every day life are the elements that we use to build realities, and are a combination of energy expressed through needs, knowledge, ethics, power and technology. Needs provoke the movement of consciousness, generating the interactions between knowledge, ethics, power and technology. Needs create experiences and objective facts that individuals conceptualize through knowledge and justify through ethics. Power validates these concepts created by individuals and organizations making them applicable and influent in a specific situation. Technology accelerates the process of creating new realities. By consciously using these forces, creating fictions, and affecting realities, individuals have the power to create transformations and make them realities.
