Chapter 4: Conversations for Possibilities

This essay describes another kind of pervasive conversation between human beings, and how it relates to conversations for action.

We call the kind of conversation in which you declare a possibility Conversations for Possibilities. In this type, you declare a domain in which you will invent and fulfill a possibility inside of a “Conversation For Action”.

We are not describing how to go about planning your actions here. Instead, we are referring to the act of making possible something by declaration. Planning becomes simpler when you are clear about the possibilities that you will pursue. Today, some would call these types of conversations “ideation”, but the term ideation does not reveal the phenomenon of honing in on certain possibilities or opportunities through a declaration.
