he distinguishes three dimensions of dependent origination and this is in his commentary on the guardian of malama jamaica carica called clear words he talks about causal dependence that is every phenomenon depends upon causes and 00:16:19 conditions and gives rise to further causes and conditions um myriological dependence that is every phenomenon every composite phenomenon depends upon the parts that uh that it 00:16:31 comprises and every phenomenon is also dependent upon the holes or the systems in which it figures parts depend on holes holes depend on parts and that reciprocal meteorological dependence 00:16:44 characterizes all of reality and third often overlooked but most important is dependence on conceptual imputation that is things depend in order to be represented as the kinds of 00:16:57 things they are on our conceptual resources our affective resources and as john dunn emphasized our purposes in life this third one really means this um 00:17:09 everything that shows up for us in the world the way we carve the world up the way we um the way we experience the world is dependent not just on how the world is but on the conceptual resources 00:17:22 as well as the perceptual resources through which we understand the world and it's worth recognizing that um when we think about this there are a bunch of um contemporary majamakers majamikas we 00:17:34 might point to as well and so paul fireauben who's up there on on the left well really an austrian but he spent much of his life in america um willard van norman kwine um up on the right wilford sellers and paul churchland
This is a key statement: how we experience the world depends on the perceptual and cognitive lens used to filter the world through.
Francis Heylighen proposes a nondual system based on causal dependency relationships to serve as the foundation for distributed cognition.(collective intelligence).
ind outside Brain:a radically non-dualist foundation for distributed cognition

The thesis of this paper is that you can have your cake and eat it: it is possible todevelop an understanding of the mind that is both non-dual and analytic—in the sense ofbased on clearly defined, formal distinctions. To achieve that, we need to replace thevagueness of process metaphysics by the concreteness of what has been called actionontology (Heylighen, 2011; Turchin, 1993). That will allow us to “extend” the mind not justacross notebooks and social systems, but across the whole of nature and society
Heylighen's program is to transition from vague process metaphysics to measurable "action ontology"

Mobilization Systems:technologies for motivating and coordinating human action
Title: Mobilization Systems: technologies for motivating and coordinating human action Authors: Heylighen, Francis; Kostov, Iavor,; Kiemen, Mixel Date: 2014
coordination can be defined as the arrangement of actions across people,places and times so as maximize synergy and minimize friction. In earlier work (Heylighen, 2012b),we have analyzed coordination into four components: alignment, division of labor, workflow andaggregation.
Definition: Coordination is the arrangement of actions across people, places and times so as maximize synergy and minimize friction. It can be analyzed into four components: 1. Alignment 2. Division of Labor 3. Workflow 4. Aggregation
More generally, a persuasive system can be seen as an implementation of what has beencalled the extended will (J. Heath & Anderson, 2010). This is a generalization of the idea that weuse various information technologies as external memories, so as to “extend our mind” into theenvironment (Clark & Chalmers, 1998; Heylighen & Vidal, 2008). But mind encompasses morethan memory and information processing capability: it also includes the motivation, concentrationand determination needed to act effectively—i.e. what is conventionally called “will”. In ourpresent environment full of distractions and temptations, our willpower is heavily taxed. Therefore,in general we need external support if we want to make sure that we stick to our intentions (Allen,2001; J. Heath & Anderson, 2010).
