Viralocity

One of the ObeyGC2 values is that work is characterized by viralocity.

As far as I know, viralocity is a new word. Don’t look for it in the dictionary. It means quickly and widely spreading. If something is going to be quickly and widely spreading it will have several characteristics. First, it will be simple. Complex things do not easily and quickly replicate. Think about it. An organism’s complexity and size are generally inverse to the number of that type of organism which exist. There are a whole lot more bacteria than people. There are far more plankton than there are blue whales. There are more mice than there are elephants. You get the picture.

Second, something with viralocity must have clear advantages over something which it replaces or changes and there must be sufficient dissatisfaction with the current situation. That dissatisfaction must either be created or brought to light before the new solution can achieve viralocity.

Thirdly, there must be a motivation for the new pattern or solution to be passed on. People must want to have this viralicious [another new word] pattern or solution and to pass it on to others. Fortunately, as they say, “good news travels fast.”

1 Cor 2:1-5
2:1 When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 3 I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much trembling. 4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, 5 so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power.

Eph 4:22-24
22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

2 Tim 2:2
2 And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.
