About community support projects

Community support projects emphasize the negation of trauma and the promotion of truth..

Drama and trauma are two polar opposites which affect the process or how one lives. Drama enhances the process, making the flow of life smoother and promotes the development of consciousness. Trauma disrupts the flow of life, because trauma is force, trauma is what breaks down or destroys consciousness. Therefore a traumatic life experience is one which disrupts or destroys preexisting life experience. It's something which happens in life which shouldn't, or the consequence of something which should have happened in life which didn't.

"How am I going to live?"

A traumatic life experience is any event which gives the illusion that there is a disconnect between the principle and the process, i.e. the development of individual perspective and the process of living, or development of life experience. It's an experience which causes someone's life to fall apart completely, or creates various barriers - practical, financial, social, emotional or psychological - which cause them to ask the question, "How am I going to live?"

There are various common traumatic life experiences which can either create those barriers impeding the natural flow of your life or cause your life to fall apart altogether. Examples include a bereavement, the breakdown of a relationship, past experiences of abuse or neglect, a loss of income or losing your occupation, losing your home, mental health issues, and so on and so forth.

The promotion of truth

Since the 16th and 17th century Western social and cultural values have been based on individualism, and the belief that everyone should be self-sufficient and a productive member of society. Since the 1980's there has been the rapid development of the microchip and digital technology which continues to today with the implementation of 5G technology. Yet throughout the education system has maintained a heavy emphasis on the development of intellectual intelligence - the processing of information through memory and intellect - and political ideology has not changed much since the 1950's or even earlier. This means the education system still educates children to think digitally - the exact same way as digital technology. The problem here is that even a primitive smartphone (think of a smartphone with a physical keyboard) can process information much faster and far more efficiently than a human. This has created a massive issue with human obsolescence and for a large number of people in society there is no opportunity for work or to derive an income from work.

This disconnect between clinging to the ideology of individualism and traditional social and cultural values and not understanding either the consequences of the consequences of the development of digital technology or the increased complexity of social issues is what has led directly to the destruction of culture and in consequence to this almost certain social collapse. Most people don't have a clue what poverty really is, how it impacts on one's mental health and wellbeing, or the direct social and cultural consequences of poverty on a community or society. Even fewer politicians understand the reality of poverty nor have they really made that much effort to find out.

For this reason a central theme in all community support projects developed by the Qultura community needs to be a heavy emphasis on the creation of truth. We have developed a community support system which is developed primarily by the people in the community who have direct individual experience of trauma and traumatic life experiences and who have a greater insight into the reality of how trauma and traumatic life experiences can impact on someone's overall life experience. Unlike creative and social community projects community support projects are developed by community members in the reverse participation role backed up by a system of community support which is based on the creation of appeals and pledges of support.

If there is to be any rebuilding or recovery from the recent COVID-19 pandemic then we cannot continue with a culture of blame and denial with regard to people in the community who are directly affected by trauma and traumatic experiences in their lives. We cannot continue with the half-baked assumptions, cultural myths and lies of individualism and the culture of looking the other way and pretending not to notice when we walk past someone who is homeless on the street. We need to find ways of developing empathy and solidarity with the most vulnerable and weakest members of our communities and create new avenues and opportunities for people to be able to reach out and reconnect with the rest of the community.

The truth must come out.

Appeals

Appeals are essentially smaller community support projects which are published on the Qultura website by reverse participants who need community support from the wider community to be able to move past trauma and overcome barriers and obstacles - practical, financial, social, emotional, psychological - so as to recover from trauma or a traumatic life experience through a process of individuation which negates the trauma. This recovery process from trauma through the process of individuation is the most effective means of recovering from trauma but there are times when those who are recovering cannot continue the process of recovery independently and they need support from the wider community.

Pledges of support

Appeals are published on the main Qultura website and provide links against which reverse participants can solicit pledges of support if they cannot find any pledges of support, which are published on this website. Qultura Core does not support any form of direct fundraising against appeals other than through pledges of support.
