If we are consciousness that has access to the coherence of individual memory and present awareness in the zero point field, we are the physical interface for space time as it is unfolding.
Death unplugs the body from awareness of the zero point field, but consciousness persists in the quantum.
Death, then, is a transition between states of consciousness.
Mark Wagnon, in our conversation with Langdon Roberts and Jim Shroads, was explaining how consciousness can become aware of other dimensions that are our current reality. However, our senses are not attuned to recognize the frequencies of the wave patterns.
This publication is about the central concepts of a wholistic model of social work practice by differentiating between mechanical and wholistic views of whole systems. Social work in the West, for example, evolved along mechanistic lines that embody principles of:
In our second meeting as a team, I introduced the idea of inviting people into a story where they were protagonists in an adventure. I proposed that this could be a way to include everyone in the process of imagining the kind of world that we might want to live in.
I was inspired by a couple podcast episodes that included discussions of the work of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, who had made a distinction between allegory and the intention of their work as writers of mythopoetic literature.
I thought about creating a Medium publication called Mythopoeia to…
You have to change your mind before you change the way you live and the way you move… The thing that’s going to change people will be something that no one will ever be able to capture on film. It will just be something you see and all of a sudden you realize ‘I’m on the wrong page.’
— Gil Scott-Heron
When we try to pick out anything by itself we find that it is bound fast by a thousand invisible cords that cannot be broken, to everything in the universe.

There is no question that there…
I can’t sleep. My allergies have flared up. Lucky, our cat, keeps us awake, asking us to fill the water bowl we keep for him in the bathroom. He jumps back up on the bed for a while to sleep. Later, realizing that we are both too restless and unsettled to sleep, Lucky decides to jump down off the bed. That is the sign for me to get up so that I can walk downstairs and open the front door for him so he can prowl the darkness. He prefers the outdoors. We just provide him with food and lodging.
Micah White told us not to repeat the same mistakes. There is no point protesting, because the protesters of the Occupy Movement have proven that protest does not work. Without coherent leadership, without a viable alternative, all that is left is the status quo.
The past several thousand years have been a disaster.
Humanity has been in the school of hard knocks ever since we discovered agriculture and planted ourselves in place, building permanent dwellings and inventing tools to try to make life easier — at least for some.
Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of the Dominion of Canada, calls an election on Sunday, August 15, 2021. What happens next is not exactly what he is expecting.
The day before, Stephen wakes up to smoke in the air and ashes sprinkled over everything on the back deck of his house. He and his wife would soon be financially independent. The date for the closing of the real estate transaction that would signal the beginning of his retirement is Thursday, August 19, 2021. He and his wife have been preparing…
Coordinating our actions together is our greatest design challenge. Who on this planet is actually working on this problem?
Daniel Schmachtenberger: The UN has 17 Sustainable Development Goals. There’s really one that must supersede them all, which is develop the capacity for global coordination that can solve global problems. If you get that one, you get all the other ones. If you don’t get that one, you don’t get any of the other ones. That becomes the central imperative for the world at this time.
Tristan Harris: So in the vacuum of what Daniel sees as a failure of our…
The world of the city is some distance away from the window that looks into a forest across the street. The area had been cleared for development in a small subdivision called Auguston at the edge of the residential area of the City of Abbotsford. But the forest has grown back, up to the sidewalk that defines the boundary between the Craftsman style homes and what remains of the habitat for wildlife, including bees, robins, squirrels, deer, coyotes, and bears.
The Auguston subdivision is named for Mr. Au Bak Ling, the Hong Kong investor who had aspired to create a…
Welcome to Mythopoeia!
You have entered a virtual reality where sentient life is being born in random locations on a planet with everything needed for the flourishing of organic life.
Each life inherits a past, lives in the present flow of experience, writing the future into being as they find their way in the world.
The world finds itself in an existential crisis, and there is less than a decade to figure out how to avoid the ecological collapse of the planet and the destruction of the species from social, economic, and political crises driven by the ecological disaster that…
