Internal Garden

Ward and I have been talking a lot about the garden metaphor. When this metaphor was first discussed, Mike Caulfield shared a post he had written that also drew the connection between the concept of the Federated Wiki and the Garden.

On my run (there was a lot of thinking on this run) I began to ponder if we could apply this metaphor internally and look into the garden within us. If that is the case, I began to ponder: What might be the wellspring of creative genius within that garden?

And how might the the meta myths of Psyche and Eros , and the Romance of the Rose play-out within that garden?

Knowledge is more than data, it is, more importantly, the stories that bring the data to life, the stories that give us meaning.
