exchangeand both profiles are updated. Both Giftor and Giftee can make comments
about the interaction then or at a later time if more appropriate. If the Giftee declines the
offer of help, the Giftor is notified so they can offer their help to some other member.
How do you registering the types of help.you might choose to give or like to receive?. It
would seem that almost any good or service could be exhanged in a synergic help
tensegrity. I would suggest three general classes of Gifts as a way of organizing the data
base. Also considerations of Local,Regionaland Globalcome into play.

important if the item is given away fully. Shipping costs might make a difference, but you
no obligation to accept the offer. Synergic exchange is fully voluntary. The giftor makes
offers of help when and to whom he chooses. The giftee accepts offers of help when and
from whom they choose.
If I gift the useof a tool for a weekend, I may do so with the condition that it be returned in
clean and in good condition. Conditions of giving is both intelligent and synergic.
to describe the offered gift accurately. A television repairman might like the gift of an old
TV, that he will repair and use or gift to someone else.
on the number of gift offers accepted, it is of great importance to have a good relationship
with the giftee. That means your discriptions of an offered gift needs to be very accurate.
No one will be critized for gifting junk as long as they describe it accurately as junk. Those
seeking junk will be happy. Remember one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.
Your ranking on thehelp offer listsis determined in part by your ration of giving-
receiving. Everytime your offers of help are accepted your ration goes up. Those who
give the most to others will be the most honored members in the community of the Gift
Tensegrity. So you will want to give as much as you can. Likewise every time you accept
a gift offering from others your ratio goes down. So you will want to accept others gifts
carefully and only when you truly value them.

been any worse. To be successful in the gift tensegity you need to give and interact in a
positive way with other members. This means you want to accurately describe your
offered gifts and make sure those accepting your gifts get what they expect from your
descriptions. You also want to be courteous and friendly in your encounters.

to be willing to take it back at my expense if the giftee paid for shipping. Or pay for
disposal and give up my credit for the gift. Remember, every exchange effects ration of

gift a major appliance or automobile regionally. And rarely, smaller lighter items might
be shipped globally especially if they are unusual one of a kind.
One major advantage of the Gift Tensegrityis that it resurrects Dead Wealth. Dead Wealth
is that wealth within the human community that is not being used to help self or others.
Dead Wealth is found in all three forms — Knowing, Action and Levers.
how to solve problems that we have encountered in our lifes. However, in our present
world we trade the hours of our lives to others for just enough money to earn our livings.
Our employers don’t want our expertise and knowledge unless it applys to the limited
task they hired us to perform. Yet in the larger context of community our unwanted
expertise and knowledge could help others. The Gift Tensegrity gives us an outlet for
sharing that expertise and knowledge.
consultations, couseling, analysis and real time problem solving, or it may be available in
the form of knowing and levers such as reports, books, video or audio tapes, artwork,
photos, computer files, etc., etc., etc..
Gift Tensegrity gives me an outlet for all of those other skills and abilities that I am not
currently trading to some employer for money. Some of us can do home and automobile
repair, handyman work, cleaning, cooking, sewing, child and elder care, teaching, etc.,
combining their errands with our own when we are out running around. The Gift
Tensegrity allows you to quickly find out how you can turn those wasted hours into help
garages, attics, and closets. Used tools, appliances, furniture, clothing, furnishings —
things we never use but are too good to throw away. Now they can be easily liberated by
simply describing them acturately and gifting them away. Or how about just gifting away
the use of some those great tools you only use one day a week or one day a month.
Because so much of our need for help is a need for local help. I see the need to establish
local Gift Tensegrities in neighborhoods. This is where you will get help with household
repair, automotive service, child and elder care, transportation, etc., etc., etc..
use of their home computer and DSL line to run a neighborhood Gift Tensegrity
Database. Then anyone in the neighborhood could use a computer with dialup
connection to the internet to connect to the local Gift Tensegrity and enter into synergic
servers which in turn would like to Global Servers. This would lead to a disseminated
system with high level of redundancy.
The Gift Tensegrity is a synergic help exchange. And as INTERdependent form or life, we
members of that exchange will be synergic. Remember synergic relationships are those
that make me more productive, more effective, and more happy. When I need help, this is
where I will look first.

TeamNets are groups of individual humans that form themselves into Teams for the
pupose of performing a larger and more complex task than they can perform as
individuals. These individuals co-Operate through a network based on synergic
relationships and synergic compensation mechanisms to accomplish those larger and
more complex tasks. Barry Carter has written extensively about this concept in his book
Infinite Wealth. And, I have developed a mechanism for organizing Synergic Production
Teams called the Organizational Tensegritywhich is available elsewhere.
