We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.
Brooks, I saw this message a few minutes ago on my way to do something else, and i felt a need to respond because it is very much related to a sense of well-being today. The statistics are that of all the information available today, 75% has become available in the last 25 years and information is now doubling every 1.5 years. So, how does one keep up with it all and weed out what is really valid when so much propaganda is being disseminated by the monetized political system we are saddled with today. How does one acquire enough valid information upon which to base an intelligent decision.
This may not be the ultimate way, but it is one myself and a few others have found to be valid.About 12 years ago I began what I call a Co-Learner's List with all private members with myself as the facilitator coupled with someone who diligently scanned all of the top news lists on web and then combined them into a distribution list that he sends out during the day. Of the hundreds of articles Paul would send to me, I would scan them for top stories, comment on them, and then forward to the rest of the list members. who would, in turn, make comments and forward them to the rest of the group. List members were composed of "just people" along with high profile scientists, authors, web hosts, financial experts from London, clergy members, a sustainable living proponent from India, an inventor from Australia, -- a very interesting group. And we discussed all types of subjects from food to alien life and everything in between. And the knowledge we acquired over time has been incredible because we got input from some of the world's top research scientists and we got it first-hand. Five or six messages went out almost every day, seven days a week and around the clock because we were from different parts of the world. And, we gradually got to the point where what we discussed was relative to what was most important re: maintaining life on earth as we face the enormous "unprecedented in past recorded history" challenges the human family faces today. And, what came out of this for me and some of the others is that the solution to every challenge we face today lays in human consciousness and taking it to another level so that we think differently about things and thus become open to making lifestyle changes that would otherwise be inconceivable to us.
Then over the past couple years i got busy on Facebook and Plaxo and have between these two social networking sites, compiled a total of about 2200 friends with whom i have communicated with casually on each site, but making close friends with those whom i felt were extremely creative and with whom i wanted to work. Then just recently, i set up a LinkedIn social networking site, and began slowly inviting those whom i identified as being tops in their field and with whom i have established some sort of relationship whereby information is being exchanged, so i now have what i consider to be equal to the "little black book" of yesteryear.
I have also developed a website entitled FutureDawning which is a virtual Learning Center and Think Tank to which i will eventually invite 1 million of the most creative people i can find to help solve the "unprecedented in human recorded history" challenges the world faces today. And as a platform for this endeavor i am currently developing a program entitled "Moving Into: TOTAL WELLNESS. And this program will act as a sort of matrix within which we can look at and then critically discuss what it is we need to do in order to change our social systems so they work for us in "life-enhancing ways" in order to get us out of our current "death-defining" ways of living, e.g., war, excessive consumption, addictions, monetized political systems, poisoned food supplies, environmental destruction, etc. etc., etc.
What you are doing with HoloGenesis, Brooks will aid my current strategy immensely. I, now thank you and the world will thank you as your vision grows into its full potential. We are in a struggle today the likes of which we have never seen before. And, if we are going to come out of this intact as the human family we need to integrate and organize in a very cooperative way -- there is no room for competition on this new playing field. We are now in the "Age of Knowledge" and it better be shared knowledge that is valid or we are outta here as the human family.
In my humble opinion.
with love and appreciation to all. .
