ZALAB Academy - Insights towards a better life and the world around you


Systems thinking process. Iceberg model. Events at the tip of the iceberg, patterns are found deeper, next layer is structures and at the bottom there is people's mental models.
four circles of different connected systems creating the world. Societal systems, Individual, Challenges in the world and opportunities/tools.

Manifesto

The images show the system of the world we live in. Where the social organization affects the mental models of people who collectively act in a certain way, creating good and bad in the world and their own lives. ZALAB Academy strives to help you to understand it all and transform the mental models of yours and people around you in order to have more of the good and less of the bad. Helping people to get educated/informed to change their lives for the better. Mostly, people will find the way if they have the right mindset, which is the premise. With a better understanding of the world, the system around them, opportunities, life and the meaning of it all on a deeper level with the help of Philosophy, Psychology and Science people will take better decisions and actions in life. People with the change of mental models for the better will in turn become more understanding and become active in changing things for the better themselves launching a chain reaction. And it is that which is needed... we need to gain a critical mass for a meaningful change.

We are fighting with a bunch of symptoms in form of various problems and have done so historically. Having a deeper understanding helps us to not react to the events and problems that occurred and persist because of the underlying structure and the collective mental models, but to change the underlying root causes, which will solve many problems at once.

The knowledge will be presented in various forms, e.g. through media production, storytelling and media curation in various distribution channels to get in front of as wide of an audience as possible. The aim is to make the insights, perspectives and knowledge interesting and captivating making people psychologically receptive to the information.

This will have far greater impact than for instance just pure philosophical texts. It's the way of making impact of mindset shift at scale. If philosophers created stories that would captivate people as series and movies do, making it more interesting and accessible for the majority, then we'd live in a better world.

The plan is to express, educate and get the message out in various forms and get it in front of as wide of an audience as possible. Educating as many as possible. Everything from the writing of books, courses, programs, storytelling, production of videos, movies, series, shows, podcasts, magazines, events, talks at relevant conferences, meetups. All possible methods to express, educate and get the message out in front of people wherever they may be, whatever they are currently interested in. Getting it out all over the world. Work in targeted countries where change would be impactful. Targeted operations and campaigns.

Innovation in the way we do things in society doesn't keep up and is not happening in the optimal way. The future has uncertain times for us and in such times people would need a new societal framework to rely on and that is also part of our work. Expressing us in various forms to convey the thought experiments, visions of how our future unfolds in the light of changes presented in our works etc.
