Where We Are

We are at a tipping point

Our geological community says we are in the Anthropocene era, an era dominated by the impact of human activity on our world. Observations from our scientific community are that we are at a tipping point in the geological evolution of our world.  And since we are part of our world, and dependent on our world for our life, our well-being, and our future, a tipping point in the evolution of our world is a turning point in our human journey.

Our human journey

Our human journey is a creative journey. We have contributed to creating our world and our world is contributing to creating us. So we could see the Anthropocene era as the creative era.

Life is a creative experience. We create our experience and our experience creates us. Creating with our experience is how we evolve. Seeing life as a creative experience and seeing our human journey as a creative journey could be how we negotiate our way around our turning point.

A turning point

We have come to where we are now by pursuing our heroic journey of acting on one another and acting on our environment to reach an arrival point of well-being we imagine for ourselves. The idea we have reached a turning point in our creative evolution is a creative idea. An opportunity to have some creative conversation around where we are, how we got here, where we are going, and what we are doing, and to explore, imagine, and create new possibilities for our future and the future of our world.

A turning point in our consciousness of our human impact on the ecology, diversity, environment, and resources of our world. A turning point in our understanding and appreciation of our creative abilities, our ability to create our world, and our ability to contribute to creating a future for our world. A turning point in our social, cultural, and human evolution.  A turning point in our creative journey.

Creating our story

We have the opportunity to imagine where we could go, what we could do, and how we could do things to create more successful enterprise in pursuit of our common human interests as individuals, as communities, and as a community.

This could be the era where we accelerate our creative and cultural evolution. This could be the era we learn how to work with nature and with one another. This could be the era we learn how to create connections and community with one another around our common human interests.

This could be the era where we excite creative community enterprise with one another to improve our ability to create possibilities for ourselves, for one another, and for the future of our world.

We have the opportunity to create new stories, new ideas, and new ways of seeing and doing things. We have the ability to excite interest and create opportunities for everyone to contribute to creating possibilities for our future, for ourselves, for one another, and for our community. We have the opportunity to create a new world to create a future for our world.

This could be the era where we accelerate our creative and cultural evolution and our evolution as a community. This could be the era when we move from the world we are creating to the world we could create.

Creating community

Our overarching interest and our quantum enterprise is to learn how to create community around ideas and opportunities and possibilities for creating a future for our world. If we are to accelerate our ability to create community around opportunities for creative community enterprise and accelerate our creative and cultural evolution we need to accelerate our ability to create connections.

Creating connections is how we learn. Creating connections is how we create. Creating connections is how we evolve. Creating connections is how we create community. Creating connections is a creative experience.

Our common interest is to create connections. Creating connections is how we come to learn about our world, creating connections is how we come to understand how things work and what works, and creating connections is how we  create possibilities for ourselves, for one another, and for our community.

We can improve our ability to create connections with one another and for one another  around our common experiences, common ideas, and common interests. We can improve our ability to create connections with one another across our different languages, different cultures, and different experiences.

We have the opportunity to accelerate our ability to create connections in our theatre of the new world to imagine and create a new world and create a new future for our world. In our creative journey we are always at the arrival point. We are always at a turning point. We could be at the tipping point.

Human civilization urgently needs a profound transformation – in both the technological and the societal senses. The mighty power of the Sun, on which mankind used to depend for most of its sustenance, should once again come to dominate our energy supply. This is but one part of a more intimate and balanced relationship with nature that we must re-establish. And nearly every minute aspect of our society, economy and everyday life will need a thorough re-examination.
