In the tradition of the Whole Earth Catalog published more than fifty years ago, and positioned as a genuine alternative to ego‑, growth‑, and tech-centric mindsets that prolong systemic problems, this catalog mixes perspectives, disciplines, and historical context to envision humanity and human-Earth-systems, like economy, healthcare, and education, renewed to honor the natural interconnections and impermanence intrinsic to our Universe.
Like the catalog itself, the title, Changing Matter, is a call to action: to shift consciousness and therefore reality by integrating ancient wisdom, emerging capabilities, and evolutionary laws into radical human potential.
PCH Innovations created this catalog to invite conversation around topics that inspire us, in hopes this may inspire others in turn. Our heartfelt belief is that innovation is core to being human, and will guide our way toward far-out horizons only when aligned with positive intent and holistic awareness to overcome structural challenges. To achieve this vision, and to break from so many destructive patterns repeated over centuries, our thinking and heart-space needs to become more open, imaginative, and daring. By sharing insights and giving attention to what matters, we accelerate change in how we think and act. Now, in this moment and momentum of a global reset, as we shift how we live, work, travel, and create, as we feel the injustice waged on individuals, society, and planet, we are energized to undo the structures that oppose the hoop of life, and rebuild a thriving civilization upon the foundation of inter-being within a greater, inclusive and ultimately cosmic community.
PCH Innovations is a multidisciplinary ingenuity studio weaving story through design, engineering, robotics, AI/EI, future-visions, and bespoke high-fidelity prototypes — born in Malibu circa 2006; based in Berlin and Los Angeles.
