The smell of wet decaying leaves, the signs of nature going dormant for winter. To the unaware, the appearance of death. To the aware, signs that the cycle of Life continues. The Cycle of Life shows itself in all aspects, eddies from the current, the massive flow of energy through the universe, alway flowing yet easily disturbed and diverted, redirected and spun off. Now as we disrupt with technology we see the same cycle that to some appear as a cycle of death yet to others appear as signs of life and hope. Let's join together in embracing the cycle of life embracing hope embracing success that we're building upon, and the change that we may implement to achieve our goals. Sustainability, compassion, humanitarian ideals, and a continued pursuit of happiness, can all be achieved with the resources available. There may be a few that need to sacrifice, but very few. The truth is that right now, the masses pay for the deficiencies and poor design of our system, though it is not malicious, nobody's doing it on purpose. There may be a select few bad actors, and it may be in part self-inflicted. We may also take solace in the evidence of the human capacity and we must take account of our natural resources in limitation in order to recognize the abundance that is available to us. We have today the opportunity to be building systems that serve and enable Humanity to be its best self, the best version of humanity that Humanity can be, with all the individual unique characters that make up that Whole. Don't believe what you are told about human nature for nothing static is human nature. Human nature is to evolve. Human nature is to grow and learn. Human nature is neuroplasticity. Our amazing ability to observe learn and change our behavior, is our nature. We must evolve from our centuries-old way of operating because it is obsolete. We must stop pretending to use modern technology when we are still only propping up obsolete system with technological bandaids. We must design our #nextsystem from the ground up, based on technology, and supporting community and humanity-based governance. We must break our addictions to blind faith and fear, then challenge ourselves to rise to the next age.
