SIMPLY PUT WE LOVE HELPING PEOPLE BUILD RELATIONSHIPS. THAT'S ABOUT IT. WE HAVE NO DESIRE TO BECOME FACEBOOK OR INSTAGRAM AND THE LIKE, WE WANT PEOPLE TO TALK TO EACH OTHER. AS SIMPLE AS THAT. FORGET ABOUT SENDING YOUR PHOTOS AND VIDEOS. WE ARE LIVE. ALWAYS LIVE.

FOR YOU WE CREATED THE ARCHIMEDES LEVER PROJECT AND the PIT. IN EVERY LIVE INTERACTION (WORKSHOPS, DISCUSSIONS, MEETUPS, MORNING COFFEE, ETC) WE WILL FOCUS ALWAYS ON MAKING THE CONNECTION - THE SUBJECT MATTER OR INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES ARE FLEETING - REAL CONNECTIONS ARE FOREVER!

THE COVID19 PANDEMIC ACCELERATED THE NEED TO HELP EVERYONE MAKE CONNECTIONS. USING the PIT WE CREATED A SET OF RULES, FOR EXAMPLE (RULE #1) SAYS THAT EVERYONE IN THE MEETING IS EQUAL. THERE IS NO HIERARCHY IN THE MEETING AND THERE IS NO SINGLE PERSON IN YOUR MEETING THAT HAS KNOWLEDGE OR ANY ATTRIBUTE THAT HAS MORE VALUE THAN YOUR OWN! YOUR VIEW, YOUR EXPRESSION, YOUR DESIRE TO BUILD RELATIONSHIPS IS ALL THAT MATTERS. 

WE ARE CURRENTLY WORKING ON BUILDING THIS PLATFORM SO REGISTER NOW TO GET UPDATES.

What's with the strange name?​

What is "Archimedes Lever"?

Archimedes Lever is a conundrum - displacement of an object (our world) from its axis by a system (ropes and pulleys) connected to a large enough lever. This conundrum was phrased by the greek mathematician and inventor of the 2nd century Archimedes. To us it means to step out of "your world" and connect with another. 

How does the Archimedes Lever principle apply to me? 

Your circle, friends and loved ones, are your lever - they help you.

So, what is my Archimedes Lever? 

Your Archimedes Lever is your circle (sometimes referred as "10") of friends working together towards a real connection helping you expand your perception of your life.  

What is a "circle"? 

A circle is a group of individuals also called "10" (see above and below - less or more individuals regardless of the actual number) that work on a problem or share an experience specifically to create a higher level of connection between them.

What is a "10"? 

A "10" is a value, not a number, depicting a force of will or desire of individuals to reach a common goal.  

What's the difference between "meetup", "workshop", "discussion"? 

Meetup

A meetup is more casual, less formal, a fairly intimate activity, usually between 4 - 8 participants. The topic will vary but will usually be around sharing an experience that matters to our daily lives. 

Workshop

A workshop is as it sounds - your circle works together on a discussion topic to enhance our connection. Usually between 6-12 participants the workshop will include topics that expand our perspective on our life. 

Discussion (or group discussion)

An event, when we want to raise a serious issue that we think is relevant, up-to-date and requires the awareness of all of us. There is no limit on the number of participants in group discussion and it can be 1000's of participants all at once (divided by rooms or circles of course).  

Quotes;
We love this
one (from the "Everest" workshop):

“No road will bring us together."
"Don't speak like that."
"I'm serious. We are not meant to come together, not any more than sun and moon were meant to come together, or sea and land. We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other's opposite and complement.”

― Hermann Hesse, Narcissus and Goldmund
