Where We Are

We are at a turning point

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

Our creative journey so far

Our human journey is our creative journey. We have contributed to creating our world and our world is contributing to creating us. We create our environment and our environment creates us. We create our experience and our experience creates us.

We could see what our scientists call the Anthropocene era as the creative era. Pursuing our heroic journey of acting on one another and on our environment in pursuit of an arrival point of well-being for ourselves is how we have come to where we are now. Pursuing the idea that our human journey is a creative journey and that life is a creative experience could be how we negotiate our way around our turning point.

An exciting idea

The idea we are at a turning point in our human journey is exciting for everyone concerned about where we are and where we are going to create connections, to explore, to imagine, and to create new possibilities for our creative and cultural evolution, for our evolution as a community, and for the creative evolution of our world. A turning point in our creative evolution.

A turning point in our consciousness and concern about 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.

A turning point in our story

We are at a turning point in our story. We have the opportunity to create new stories, new ideas, and new ways of seeing and doing things. And 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 could imagine where we could go, how we could do things, and what we could create that could contribute more successfully to our common human interests as individuals, as communities, and as a community.

It could be the era of our creative and cultural evolution. It could be the era we learn how to work with nature and with one another. It could be the era we create connections and community with one another around our common human interests. It could be the era where we excite creative community enterprise to improve our ability to create possibilities for ourselves, for one another, and for the future of our world.

Seeing ourselves at a turning point brings us to a more conscious observation, exploration, and consideration of what we are doing and how we are doing things, and of what we could do and how we could do things to move us from where we are now to where we could go on our creative journey.  And move us from the world we are creating to the world we could create.

A creative idea

We are at a turning point is an idea that could excite creative conversation, creative imagination, creative exploration, and creative enterprise. Creative conversation in exploring where we are, where we are going, where we could go, and what we could do. Creative imagination about how things are, how things could be, how things work, how things could work, and what creative possibilities we could pursue.

Creative exploration of ideas and enterprises that could contribute to creating the possibilities we imagine. Creative exploration of opportunities for creative community enterprise around our common interests. Creative exploration for ideas we have in common and ideas we commonly agree upon that contribute to making creative community enterprise possible.

And creative enterprise around opportunities and ideas about what we could do which excite our imagination, our interest, our ideas, our initiative, and our investment in creating possibilities for a new world.

Creating connections

We have our different languages, our different cultures, our different way of seeing and doing things, and our different interests and experiences of life. Our common interest is to create connections. Creating connections is how we come to learn about our world, how we come to understand how things work and what things work, and how we imagine and create possibilities for ourselves, for one another, and for our community.

Each connection we create contributes to our creative experience, our creative enterprise, and our creative energy to carry us forward on our creative journey and to improve our ability to contribute to creating possibilities.

Creating connections is how we learn, how we create, and how we evolve. Creating connections is how we create community. Connections are creative.

Creating community

If we are interested in creating connections within our communities and between our communities with our different cultures, our different ways of communicating, and our different ways of seeing and doing things, we are going to be interested in creating a common language of ideas. Language are the words we use to communicate with and understand one another.  Words communicate ideas. Ideas we have in common or agree to have in common improve our ability to create connections and conversation and creative enterprise with one another across our different languages, cultures, and experiences.

What creates community

Common interests. Common ideas. Common experiences. Common enterprise.

Why create community

To create common enterprise. To increase the contribution of our community resources. To reduce loss, failure, and harm. To reduce conflict and risk. To improve our quality of life as individuals and as a community. To feel connected. To increase our ability to create possibilities for ourselves. To accelerate our creative and cultural evolution as a community. To excite creative community enterprise.

What could contribute to creating community

A language of community. A culture of community. Operating beyond integrity. A communication system

Creative community enterprise

Our quantum community

Our nature, our interests, our enterprise. To create quantum change to move from the world we are contributing to creating now to creating a new world that increase our possibilities of creating a future for our world.

Quantum media

Community media contributing to our quantum community interests and our creative community enterprise.

Our creative arts

The language of music, dance, story, and creative expression are the languages we create connections with. Connections with the creative experience and with the creative imagination, creative energy, and creative expression we excite. Our creative arts are how we communicate and create connections with the experiences, the imaginings, and the ideas we have in common.

 

Our creative journey

Our creative journey doesn’t end at an arrival point. Our creative journey contributes to creating endless possibilities that are beyond our imagination. Our creative journey isn’t focused on our point of arrival. It is focused on our point of departure and our imagination of what we could do to create connections to improve our ability to create possibilities.

We are hurtling into our future. We are creating our future. We could create possibilities for our future and the future of our world by accelerating our creative and cultural evolution as a community. We can accelerate our ability to create possibilities by accelerating our ability to create connections. Our quantum enterprise.

Creating possibilities

What we could do is explore the idea of our creative journey, the nature of our creative journey, and our understanding of the art of creative enterprise and the opportunities we have to change the way we see and do things to create a better environment for our future and a better future for our environment.

What we could do is use our universal language of our arts and our ability to create connections with our creative expression to excite creative conversation around the idea of the creative journey, excite our imagination about possibilities we could create, and excite creative contribution and creative community enterprise around what we could do.

Contributions

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.
