Just Gharr’s way to say thank you to those of you who are part of the Gharr group, and those in the world community: that also support The Venus Project. Hope this small gesture will also encourage you to check out creative commons and how it is used. You can find out more about The Venus Project and what a Resource Based Economy is here: https://www.thevenusproject.com/
” A Picture: Labeled as “Gharr’s Group TVP Symbol,” but not an official TVP symbol. Each member (casual or, long-term) of the Gharr group, and/or the world’s community is encouraged to design their own TVP Symbol of course–that is the fun of making stuff. In a Resource Based Economy there are no leaders ;)” ~ Gharr 2015
While a single person did this artwork, the work belongs to the Gharr group, and the world community, because it is they who inspired that person. Gharr (a group in reality) will always need you. It is hoped that we can share many good ideas, work on some really cool projects, make great stuff. That we can take the time to find a way to help other people, and to make their lives better during this transition–to what we hope will be a Resource Based Economy–easier. The future will force change on us (a transition time), so let us hope that we can have a way to influence that change, and make this world a good place for all people to live in. We need each other, the person who made this art needs you, because without you this art work would never exist–in a way you all contributed to its design… thank you.
While you might be considered to be a part of the Gharr Group, whomever works on projects with you is also in your group, this is especially true in leaderless groups; ultimately our project’s art part of the global or world community group.
Perhaps one day if some of us leave this planet, we will all be part of the solar system group, galactic group , or even the universe’s group. If there is any other life out there, I hope we decide to have a relationship that is similar to what people would have in a Resource Based Economy, where all intelligent beings are are cared for, and so is all life.
While here Gharr’s group is mentioned, perhaps just a label used to reflect on the projects worked on in both a short term, and longer time scale that have no direct names (unless the individuals working on them choose to name them). However all these project’s are also part of a larger group’s projects, that is the world community.
In reality, we need every person in this world to be part of a global-group that changes things for the better in this world, because you are part of our world community, and you are important to everyone of us.
Thank you 🙂 from the Gharr Group (the play, discussions, projects are part of our lives, but also form a part of a larger whole, that is the world community which you are also a part of).
While this image (not official) is original, it does roughly resemble The Venus Project symbol, however it is significantly different. Gharr does like The Official Symbol for The Venus Project, and it is hoped that this new symbol is also a way to respectfully thank all the people in The Venus Project that help us so much, and do so much for every person in this world. Here is a picture to remind you of what the official TVP symbol looks like 😀
Beyond Politics Poverty And War
To make this world a better place, you actually have to share good ideas, and take the time to think about what a better world might be like.
It is said that each organization goes through a period of growth or change that redefines it ┊┊ a time to reflect ┊┊ to rewrite/redefine: the the branding statement, who I am—the web-label, or what the event/project name label really is about ┊┊ are we inventing more things about the leaderless groups ┊┊ or are we simply reflecting on the nature of human interactions? ~ #POEM
The original early production of this page was just a thank you to the people that voluntarily work with Gharr (the group) ┊┊ but it is realized, that those people don’t actually voluntarily work or take time to have some fun in the Gharr Group ┊┊ but Gharr is also just a default-name for the projects, and meetings (even if it’s just for fun), that occur between people ┊┊ Occasionally Gharr (an event, as any project, or meeting is) might inspire others not related to Gharr, or working with Gharr to get together and have their own event or project ┊┊ These things are not the strong borders that traditional groups, and organizations like to have, and be defined by ┊┊ but then again, leaderless groups make for interesting times ~ #POEM
To the people that like to consider themselves part of the world community ┊┊ or the people that like to be a part of the projects, discussions that are called or labelled Gharr here ┊┊ Thank You. ~ #POEM
Gharr is quite complex ┊┊ he is also a character like Hatsune Miku ❤❤❤ ┊┊ whom he is also totally in Love with ┊┊ but everyone knows that ┊┊ in the future Love is called Extensionality ~ #POEM
The licenses are not easy to use, even though the terms seem to be boldly mentioned. Some videos on the subject seem to imply that a commercial product can be negotiated by a person or group that makes a creative commons non-commercial license (in theory if that commercial license tries to get copyright, they would prevent the previous license from working, and that seems unlikely as it seems difficult to revoke a creative commons license once given out: No additional restrictions rule in license). Also what do remixes, transform, and build upon mean. The subject of defining these words in an exact manner seems to be avoided as it may have legal implications. Here there is a discussion about what the terms might mean, but to be safe you should consult law and a lawyer to fully understand what the terms mean in an international, and local way.
ShareAlike — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.
Check with your lawyer to get exact international, or local definitions. The below is a rough translation from this video: https://vimeo.com/25684782 and this open source video: https://youtu.be/a8fHgx9mE5U
No Derivatives: You can’t change the original.
Remix: Mixing with other art for example, using a picture in a video, or add fancy letters such as “X’s Blog” are examples.
Transform: A change made to the picture (such as putting a tear in the picture). making a book into a movie (only a wild guess about this one).
Build: Add some color, & decorations to an existing picture (such as coloring in a black and white giraffe, and change abstract patterns to natural colored spotted patterns) for example. Build upon a architectural house drawing might include adding a garage, a loft, a patio, a babies room, solar panels, and so on.
Fictional Example: Adding extra skate-board minor tricks variations to an existing routine might be considered building upon; where as adding a existing trick into the routine might be considered remixing; and using the skate board routine for a snow board, or roller blades might be considered a transformation. Adding in your own original skateboard trick to a existing routine is mixing in your own material. This might also relate to dance choreography.
How much of a change, or interpretations of a picture, by drawing from scratch, might make the picture and independent work is something that requires consideration of local and international laws, and consultation from a lawyer might clear things up in such cases.
The question of if open source should be used rather then creative commons is another question for a house design for example.
The open source vs creative commons is discussed here: https://www.oshwa.org/2014/05/21/cc-oshw/
For open source hardware. Hardware is built using designs, hardware can be repaired and modified/improved by having access to designs also. Often today, drawings may be held in digital form.
There is quite a lot of resistance to licenses for hardware designs that use a non-commercial license, the logic being that evolution of the design, and sharing of the design will only occur if the design has some relationship to the monetary system.
With the event of 3D Printers, Universal Basic Income or some variant to take into account huge job losses due to automation, and a thing called the sharing economy: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCLPizjSe6I&feature=youtu.be&t=25m40s), or Commons-based society as proposed by the P2P Foundation: https://p2pfoundation.net/ (they use policy proposals to implement their aims, as government should cooperate with us, and act in our best interests—as would be implied if you trust your government; however with a trusted government, does that mean the monetary system will not fail…): the monetary system may fail totally, or to some extent, and non-commercial licenses may become more popular.
