|Why are you here?|
I want to tap into the community of people who "get it". I want to share ideas about how to spread the message more effectively. I want to find out how people are preparing themselves and those around them for the coming transformation.
Above all, I want to talk to some people who understand that the solution is inside, not outside, and that more windmills won't fix the problem.
|Any other personal information/resources/advice/ideas to share?|
I've been sneaking up on this awareness (or it has been sneaking up on me) for the last 3 years, starting with climate change, proceeding on through Peak Oil, then to the looming ecological and economic collapses, finally arriving at an understanding of food security issues. I at last realized that not only is humanity facing a set of converging crises, but that they all seemed to spring from a common rootstock. The closest I could get to what that might be was the understanding that it was related to our innate need for growth, which I interpreted to be genetic.
At that point my girlfriend (who already knows all this stuff, for some mysterious and apparently gender-linked reason) bought me Ishmael and TSoB last week. It felt like discovering the Rosetta Stone. I finally feel like I understand the basics of the organizing principle behind these converging crises. And with that understanding, maybe it will be possible to find a door out of this box we've build for ourselves over the last 10,000 years.
