WiLL™WORKiNG THE LIFE – LAB
WiLL© is a vision that has already become a reality.
Is self-determination through work possible in this society?
Can anyone really claim to have succeeded in this?
But Life is the Work we have to do to understand it.
Life and Work are the same: the means and the end.
And you can never work on yourself: you always have to
work on something or someone else, someone who is not us.
That, in summary, is the problem (or challenge, if you prefer)
of our contemporary age.
This is the core business of WiLL©.
working the life
at Ethical Counter-Evolution Age
“WiLL© is a Permanent Laboratory focusing on the most important issue of our time: the relationship between Life and Work.
We are too advanced in our evolutionary development not to consider self-determination of the individual within an evolved, responsible civilization at the heart of public and private debate.
But it is still too early for this to happen.
WiLL© aims to apply reflective Research to make a significant contribution to shifting the axis of human endeavor towards a culture of Life and Work oriented towards the generative depths of meaning, and away from the compulsive surface of surplus value, within the mesh of social and organizational structures. It does so with all stakeholders, whether they be national, international, public, private, individuals or groups or, of course, companies and professionals”.

Chi è l’uomo sincronico? Perché si chiama sincronico? Perché è nominato superuomo mentre diviene marionetta etero-diretta? Chi è davvero l’uomo contemporaneo?
La bellissima e inquietante immagine intitolata “Glass” di #FabioZonta anticipa con una stimolazione emozionale già macchiata di intuizioni cognitive il ragionamento che il saggio di Cesare Grisi cerca di sviluppare.
After one year from the first draft, the author, due to the present global dangerous situation, comes back to this essay to underline the links between the humanitarian crisis of the present and the political problem of the recent past.

The circle represents planet Earth.
The double helix is humankind, so-called Homo Sapiens-Sapiens.
The double helix of DNA is not vertical but horizontal because, since humankind appeared on Earth approximately 2.5 million years ago, something happened that changed the course of events.
Verticality – the hierarchical sign of the struggle for survival – has metaphorically become horizontal. This change signifies the end of the struggle: it is the equal right of existence afforded to every living creature.
That’s why the double helix has been rotated: because the value of life has supplanted the vertical law of survival, i.e. it is horizontal because all meaning is on the same level.
However, the double helix is missing some rungs: that’s why WiLL© exists. It means that our Ethical Counter-Evolution is not yet complete. You only have to look around you to understand that.
But if you look closely, you will see that something new has already occurred.
We have to help it mature.
