Order Storytelling and Future of Organizations: An Antenarrative Handbook - (2011, Routledge)
Antenarrative connects webs of living stories now-ness to grand narratives of past and bets on future. ANTEnarrative means before-narrative rigidity/reification and bets on the possible futures arriving here-and-now. Four kinds of antenarratives are being studied: linear-, cyclical-, spiral-, and rhizomatic-antenrrating. The French have two words for future: 'futur' as 'prediction' of how the 'before' will recur in the future, and 'avenir' the shaping and creating of future (the bet). This double meaning is the foundation of 'antenarrative' the 'before'-narrative solidifies, and the 'bet' of avenir, the shaping and creating of the future that is before narrative. Antenarrative is simply put a connectivity of little living stories we live and the bigger grander narratives that fossilize. That is a avenir happening between physics and storytelling.
Merleau-Ponty's (1962: 309) quote about 'spiral' gives some insights into antenarrative dynamics of spacetimemateriality: "If we project on to the screen the post-image of a spiral revolving round its centre, in the absence of any fixed framework, space itself vibrates and dilates from the centre to the periphery." The linear-, cyclic-, rhizomatic-, and spiral-antenarratives are very intertwining as they intra-actively connect the narratives (epistemic & empiric) with the little living stories. It is this dynamic of narrative-antenarrative-[little living]story that I call the domain of storytelling. It has a materiality, not in the Newtonian sense, but in the quantum sense.
|ECOSACRED.NET||EcoSacred is a posthumanist understanding of ecology for its sacredness. Living things are spirited and interconnected. What is Living Story? A living story is somethiing I have developed in relationship to narrative and to antenarratives, as the triadic domain of storytelling discourse. I first encountered the idea when I began my colleagueship with Kaylynn Twotress in 1997, and the idea took on more aliveness with Jo Tyler's work on story-aliveness. Living story developed more materiality in working with Cajete's and Vizenor's work on materiality in relation to story.|

YouTube "Quantum Storytelling: Blacksmithing Art in the Quantum Age" - produced by Grace Ann Rosile and David M. Boje. Boje narrates the video. Or, VIMEO Film 1st version 'Quantum Storytelling: Blacksmithing Art in the Quantum Age' (Boje, 2012); See slides from Denmark Film Debut - The Film Debut Premiere was in Aalborg University on May 30, 2012, as a presentation to the faculty after David M. Boje received an Honorary Doctorate degree award from the university. There is a PDF of slides of Blacksmith Art in Denmark and the list of questions asked in the interviews of the 13 blacksmiths who were interviewed in US, Canada, France, and UK. Boje plans to interview blacksmith artists in Denmark.
The video presents the eleven D's of Quantum Storytelling from an ontological standpoint.
Quantum Stoyrtelling is an Annual Conference around December 17th each year in Las Cruces, New Mexico; 'Quantum Storytelling' is a communion of quantum physics with a peaceaware storytelling. Quantum Storytelling - proceedings and papers of Dec. 16-18th 2011 conference in Las Cruces, NM
Why are cyclical-antenarrative linear and why is the blacksmith artist living labor differently than the university professor who is now only an intellectual laborer? An essay about Hannah Arendt's (1958) rendering of cyclical-eternal-recurrence.

The Dec. 16-18 2011 'Quantum Storytelling Seminar' participants
In 1st Renaissance art developed perspectives and science fell in love with Newtonian mechanistic physics resulting in late modern capitalism. both developments (physics & capitalism) transformed storytelling. In 2nd Renaissance art goes quantum and physics-science is falling in love with the observer effect, in a new ways of fore-conceiving materiality in very different ways than ever before. The old materiality had what Zygmunt Bauman calls 'solid modernity' and the new one, a 'liquid modernity.' Our solid modernity was the iron cage of Weberian bureaucracy and the mechanistic physics materialist rhetoric of vulgar representation of our material condition. When this new materiality encounters a more liquid storytelling, the communion is 'Quantum Storytelling' a very different materialist rhetoric, not as a linear-repeating prediction (from before, but rather as a 'bet' of 'avenir' the future-ahead-of-itself, arriving to transform the past and present. We are just beginning to notice how George Herbert Mead (1958), Martin Heidegger (1962), and especially proto-pragmatist Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1962) have a very different conception of space-time-materiality. In particular, Merleau-Ponty's (1962: 309) temporal wave and his sense of spiral (p. 315), provides a very different antenarrative: "But co-existence, which in fact defines space, is not alien to time, but is the fact of two phenomena belonging to the same temporal wave" (p. 309). I combined these insights in the film, with Heideggerian ontology, a being-in-the-world where spiral-antenarratives buffeted by updraft and downdraft forces is mediating in-between little living stories we live and the narrative grand representations. I am working on a new book on Pragmatist Storytelling Philosophy, where the pragmatist-ontology antecedes and antenarrative-connects the epistemic narratives, the empiric narratives, with the little living stories.
