Ys-UP America's Virtual Intellect Prepping's DIY 3-Step Prep builds "Intellectual Skill Sets" that generate analytical perspectives that provide the basis for behavior that produces predictable consequences by putting a situation/circumstance into Context that encourages collaborative Ensembles to function in Concert > and enables employees to be recognized for their contributions and become Indispensable.
The One-Room School House was the "Lynchpin" of America's
> Wheel of Societal Progress
"As Global Economic competition increases > Citizen Civility, Congeniality and Nation Collaboration (aka: Societal Progress) must increase faster and faster to protect against Domestic Societal Friction and International Conflicts." — D.D. John
The One-Room School House — could deliver America's Promise based on the Teachings of Jesus Christ (defined in the Jefferson Bible) as presented in the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Codified in the U.S Constitution > of a Government "of the People, by the People, for the People" -- that was born in a World ruled by Monarchs, Popes, Misconception and Superstition (aka: Religious Fascism).
The One-Room School House was a student-oriented facility where USA's youth learned How-to Communicate and Collaborate in Concert, while acquiring the necessary Intellectual Skill Sets via Student-Mentoring and appropriate-Teaching to successfully roll America's Wheel of Societal Progress forward -- competitively / profitably / somewhat equitably.
The One-Room School Houses died on the doorsteps of U.S. schools segregated by Age > Test-based > Grade-driven/divided > Pop-Culture-oriented classrooms -- that discuss Topics, not Disciplines, and Indoctrinate, not Educate. Current U.S. Schooling has built a United States of America that is no longer united and is now on its Economic/Political Knees > while expanding Dropouts, Drug ODs, and Academic Remediation. Resurrection is a "Back to the Future" experience.
We have Resurrected America's One-Room School House with Satellites via Virtual Intellect Prep > DIY 3-Step Prep. Now, Americans can Learn How-to DIY and get America's Wheel of Societal Progress rolling again -- So that the only Nation on Earth with a government "of the People, by the People, for the People" shall not perish from the Earth.

America has become a Nation of People who spend their lives being told > what to-do, how to do-it, when to do-it > while enduring the demise of their traditional to-Do’s by hiding in a 3D world of Distraction > Drugs > Delusion, and publicly displaying their ignorance and ineptitude by marching in the streets instead of voting. It's Time to-Do the Right Stuff and DIY the Ys-Way -- by Envisioning/Acquiring a Ys-er/better way.
Americans are going to need a new kind of Thinking>Doing if America is going to Survive and Thrive during the Fourth Industrial Revolution – 4IR (Digital Transformation) and its attendant Fourth Intellectual Reformation = 4IR (Envision). 4IR + 4IR = 4IR2 = the Age of Automation.

Our Council of Envisionary Advisors We are only as good as our Sources, Experience, inherent Capabilities and Cultural Competencies.
The USA Today must start to build the Top-Tier of a 21st Century Tri-Fecta Workforce — that can compete in the Price:Value-driven Global Economy of the 21st Century's "Age of Automation" or lose America's Promise — that a Nation of the People, by the People, for the People shall not perish from the Earth.

— At this point in Time —
The U.S. Workforce has the highest percentage of university/college graduates in the World — by double digits. America is losing the Global economic competition — by double digits. In 2021, China's economy grew +8.1%; U.S. economy was down –6%. Plus, 80% of today's computer chips are manufactured in Asia.
America must Ys-UP or the USA is going down. The Age of "niche" Specialization, Parsing Capabilities, Binary Thinking, Zero-sum Management Tactics, and Adversarial Labor-Management Relations is over. Specialists/Experts can’t keep up with an evolving BioNatSciTech / Ambient-Intelligence + Contextual / Conceptual Thinking, Intellectual Skill Sets-based, Price:Value-driven Global industrial evolution. Envisionaries must replace U.S. EXPERTS who have read themselves stupid and are being replaced by Google.

Orthrow a lifeline to someone you know who is sinking in the Quagmire of America’s Academic Gibberish, Cultural Dysentery, and the advice of U.S. Experts who have lost their Way -- as the Statistics so Say.
Einstein said,“Insanity is doing the same thing over-and-over-and-over again and expecting different results” aka: U.S. Medical Experts and Public Health Experts whose ignorance / arrogance has allowed COVIDs to kill their fellow Americans, and U.S. Economic Experts who are leading the American Economy into another Great Recession/Depression.
COVIDs kill. However, COVIDs are chemical compounds that have no-self-propelling capabilities and must hitch-hike on free-floating moisture droplets that can be corralled and their COVID passengers "denatured"
in an air-conditioner/system > with a 6"–12" UV-C/Infra Red Gantlet + Breathalyzers that can immediately recognize COVID Carriers + residents who can build healthy Lungs that will reject or denature COVID compounds. Therefore, there was/is no excuse for losing over 1-Million Americans, disabling the American Economy, and destroying America's Promise.
Statistics, Data, the 70% of U.S. High School Graduates who need 3R's Remediation to deal with U.S. Post-secondary Schooling, and misinformed Anti-Vax-ers' actions tell us > America's Academic Experts have lost their way.

Introducing a Graphic Textbook -- for xY-Chromosome-based, DNA-built right-brain dominant, Visual Learners > who don’t memorize verbatim so do poorly or drop out of U.S. schooling. (Einstein refused to memorize. He said it gave him a headache. His advice, “Don’t memorize anything you can look up.” Google is more accurate and up-to-date than US Academics or their textbooks.) Visual learners (descendants of Hunters) assimilate in Context via Graphic Visceptuals that present Concepts in Context.
Graphic Visceptuals replace standard Textbook Verbiage to be memorized verbatim by XX-chromosome-based, DNA-built left-brain dominant > Rote / Regurgitate /Replicate Learners (descendants of Gatherers).
The above Perspectives can-be substantiated by a Noble Prize in Medicine/Physiology, Roger Sperry, Cal Tech 1981. Verified by personal experience — D.D. John > and by vicarious experience — Steve Jobs; Elon Musk.

The Journey to becoming a Contender starts with a single step:
Applying/Qualifying for Top Tier Prepping and Certification for America's 21st Century Tri-Fecta Labor Force
Prologue: Do you have the Intellectual Skill Sets to become indispensable?
Submit an Apt-Ability Profile—The First certification for becoming Top-Tier employable and/or "expendable" vs. "indispensable" during America's "Age of Automation" (2012-2072) is an Apt-Ability Profile that confirms a contender's potential Ambient Intelligence (aka: Right Brain Functionality).
Ambient Intelligence (Am-IQ) testifies to whether or not a contender has/can build the Intellectual Skill Sets to DIY On-the-Fly and become a Pragmatic Envisionary during America's dynamic, price:value-driven, Globally competitive "Age of Automation" Top-Tier employment.
The Truth as BioNatSciTech sees it — You must be able to "4C" to "4A". You can learn How-to DIY "VirMotely" (Virtually Remote) via VIP's 3-Step Prep (Solo, join a Collaborative Cluster, or join a Chapter of Habitat for Envisionaries).
"Age of Automation" Top-Tier Contenders will become indispensable employees because they can OJT - DIY > i4C = Comprehend > Consequences > Collateral Affect/Effect > In-Context => i4A = Anticipate + Adjust + Adapt + Adopt > DIY On-the-Fly (aka: a Pragmatic Envisionary).
Instructions: If you think you have the Intellectual Skill Sets to become indispensable, fill out and send us your Apt-Ability Profile for Evaluation and possible Certification of Ys-Ways. We will send you a Sessions Schedule to become an Indispensable Employee > Gig-Antic > Entrepreneur > Mentor > Consultant.
The Apt-Ability Profile ($480) Includes 3 "VirMote" Sessions over 4 Weeks (one 2-hour Mentored Session + 2 DIY Sessions/Week) with 11"x17" Ys-Visceptuals
Session #1:Learn how-to catalog your unique Aptitudes, Capabilities, Perspectives > and identify where you can DIY-enhance your Competencies relative-to requisite "Age of Automation" Intellectual Skill Sets. Session #2:Learn how-to Invest in Yourself by creating superior first impressions and demonstrating "Age of Automation" DIY-Adaptable capabilities/competencies that can increase an employer's profit Margins. Session #3:Learn how-to build/manage your employment Options / Opportunities / Career Paths and get well-paid for your Capabilities/Competencies. _________ BTW: If you are a Phi Beta Kappa, PhD, State-Licensed Professional, Minister, Public Servant, Nonprofit Employer > 4IR2 will not be a good fit for you — as an Apt-Ability profile will confirm.
Strive > Thrive > and Protect Your Financial Security during America's Post-Pandemic Economies =VIP 3-STEP Prep that Resurrects an 18th Century American tradition — DIY (Do-It-Yourself) and Corroborate + Collaborate > while incorporating the 21st Century's Age of Automation requisite capabilities, competencies, perspectives + Am-IQ (Ambient Intelligence).
STEP 1: Learn "What are" the Capabilities and Competencies you need to succeed
Learn How-to connect and cluster with fellow Envisionary Contenders around Pragmatic Concepts in Context that build the "Core" knowledge, tools, skills, perspectives that can provide employment/financial security during the U.S. "Age of Automation" (2012-2072). Stop being "expendable" > Start becoming "indispensable".
The primary parsing in 21st Century America's Tri-Fecta Workforce will be Expandable Employees vs. Indispensable Employees. If you don't care - today > you will become Expendable - Tomorrow. That has become a Data-based statistical fact. If you Do Care - today > you can become Indispensable - Tomorrow. That's a Certifiable Fact.
American employment is basically divided into: 1) An Industrial / Commercial / Production Workforce, and 2) Services / Support / Sales Chains. Workforce
Connect and Participate in virtually remote ("VirMote") Collaborative Clusters that directly relate to Prepping for Top Tier employment in the U.S. "Age of Automation" that has already started (2012-2072).
The 21st Century's Digital Transformation-based "Age of Automation" has changed > is changing> in America's Industrial / Commercial / Production Workplaces, Workspaces and their requisite employee / administration / management Skill Sets. The 6 Requisite Capabilities Surviving and Thriving in Post-Pandemic America will depend on how-well individuals can Comprehend + COPE + Compete with the growing A.I. and Robotic Workforce.
STEP 2: "How-to" acquire the Capabilities and Competencies you need to succeed
Develop "Certifiable" Ambient Intelligence and the capabilities and competencies to "4C" to "4A" > Re: 1) Skill Sets for 21st Century America's Workforces during the "Age of Automation". 2) How-To Deal with the U.S. Post-Pandemic Employment Crisis. 3) Revitalizing the American Workforce > “Back to the Future” > by resurrecting the Dynamics of the Schooling that Built America (College Degrees have become the Portal to America's 21st Century Servant-Class, Un-Employed, "expendables". aka: grunt labor).
You can Prep yourself and/or others for a successful / satisfying "Life after Schooling" if you can Envision the implications of the real-time / real-world of Digital Transformation (aka: D>T), Artificial Intelligence, Automation, and Virtual Reality. It's all about Ambient Intelligence > Mental Acuity > Envisioning > Anticipating (4C to 4A) > Adapting > Adopting (Requires Right-Brain Functionality).
What We Are! >Once we understand "What We Are!", we can begin to understand "Why we are - Who we are" and can help ourselves and others discover where they might find the > Right Fit. There are 4 Types of Chromosome-built, DNA-based People: XX - XXy - xy - Yx.
STEP 3: "How-to" apply/practice the Capabilities and Competencies you need to earn a Confirmation of Adaptability
The Primary Tools for Ys-Ways are “Postulates“, a method for Prioritizing options and opportunities, and “Visceptuals“, graphic presentations of a “Concept-In-Context" for Ys-Persons with Intellectual Skill Sets. Another useful tool is "Vantages/Vantage Points". “Vantages” create Vantage Points that provide perspectives that can help us control our choices and manage our lives. A Vantage Point is a place where we can get a view of the Context of a situation > circumstance > phenomenon -- before espousing an opinion, making a judgment, or taking an action.
Phase #2: "How-to" become an Indispensable employee — starts by building your own Critical Paths that will take you where you want to go. Where you want to go — NOT — where someone else thinks you should go. Your Critical Path to Top-Tier employment will take you through the 5 Whys > Waigaya, and on to Indispensable.
First: Can you envision being of unique value to any enterprise? How about > Specifically to an Industrial / Commercial enterprise that pays people to perform for the benefit of the Enterprise and compensates those who do. If you can > You can. Do you want to?
Plan A (ages 16–60+) : Ask yourself --
What do I have to Know? Where do I find out > What I have to know?
Whatdo I have to be able to do? Where can I learn How-to-Do what I need to be able to do?
CanI afford the time and money ($48/week = one 2-hour Mentored session + 2 DIY 2-hour sessions/week). Attendance = VirMote Cluster or local Chapter in-person and/or VirMote or mixed.
DoI get 3rd Party confirmation of my Age of Automation Capabilities and Competencies? Yes, you get a Confirmation of your Top-Tier Perspectives, a Degree of Adaptability and a Degree of Competence.
Isthis something that can help my children? My grandchildren? Yes, and it can create a connection
We cannot control the world around us or the People in it, but we can control their impact on our options and opportunities > by learning How-to increase our Ambient Intelligence, Mental Acuity, Adaptability > and become an indispensable Employee, Mentor, Gig-antic or Consultant.
Ys-Up America's Critical Paths > Phase #1 > Phase #2 > Phase #3 > are for those employees who must use the D>T + BioNatSciTech Tools of the Age of Automation => A.I. + Automation + Robotics + ??? (aka: Users) to profitably contribute to the production of Industrial / Commercial Products/Services that generate a favorable balance of Trade for unique Employers, their Communities, their States, their Country.
Critical Paths can be built to go anywhere (aka: MBO). We focus on Critical Paths that lead to Top-Tier employment. (Building the D>T-based BioSciTech Tools — A.I., Automation, Robotics Software, et al. for Production — is another game.)
Phase #3: VIP Top Tier Prep > Discover the 16 Core Capabilities / Competencies / Perspectives necessary to compete during America's Age of Automation > How-to become Recognized, Recruited and Rewarded for being Indispensable
At first, Man worked with his hands. Then came tools to use with their hands. Then came machines that Man could drive that did the work he used to do with their hands (Industrial Revolution) Now, AI drives the machines that do the work that Man used to do with their hands. Man must learn how-to-manage A.I., Automation, Robotics, etc.
Becoming Adaptable requires the ability to Envision and Merge predictable Consequences and their Collateral Affects (aka: a Pragmatic Envisionary). Becoming a Pragmatic Envisionary is a DIY Collaborative Activity that requires Aptitude / Guidance / Mentoring / Practice > and becoming a member of an Ensemble.
Becoming Adaptable is a bit like learning to play a musical instrument so you can join a Band. In this case, a Band of Age of Automation Top-Tier Productive, Employable, Pragmatic Envisionaries. (Other examples of Collaborative Ensembles: Architecture, Football, Orchestras, Plays, and Cities with Balanced Economies.)
Follow the Phase #3 Critical Path to discover the 16 core Capabilities/Competencies/Perspectives > How-to become Recognized, Recruited and Rewarded for being Indispensable (and earn a Degree of Adaptability and/or a Degree of Competence). Certified Envisionaries will be the first Hired, the last Fired, and the best-Paid.
