Depart refers to the deliberate act of leaving behind patterns, behaviors, and systems that no longer serve our species.
This section is inspired by the archetypal myth of the hero’s journey. In our case, humanity is the hero of the story, departing from an environment polluted by injustice and misguided power.
In our telling, humanity must learn to: be accountable for past transgressions, be cognizant of making sustainable choices, and be respectful of an interrelated nature in order to restore our global home as a healthy place to live.
The subsections that follow speak to different kinds of departures. Departures from: conventional approaches to innovation, antiquated notions of a healthy economy, a restrictive educational system, a failed healthcare industry, and a poorly-constructed notion of how to treat our environment.
We believe fulfillment of the hero’s quest will occur when we rightfully repair the relationships that have led to the slow destruction of ourselves and the planet. In taking this course of action, we will create supportive conditions for the next generation to rebuild civilization.
