We wish to acknowledge the laws of the physical and spiritual worlds that work together to propel explorations into unknown human potential. While we do not propose to have all the answers that will solve the challenges before us, we believe in the power of being open to receiving wisdom from every conceivable (and inconceivable) source. In this way, we hope to pay careful and deliberate attention to what we observe and to record our observations with joy and love for the opportunity to participate in the eternal narrative of life.
In the decades ahead, we can count on incredible highs and devastating lows. Suffering occurs on the path to any innovation or positive outcome. An alternative meta-paradigm will come about by dealing with its corresponding stress—it’s natural, and vital, for the next wave of innovation to improve upon.
We need to let go of many of the trappings of success that we have come to think would provide improved living conditions everywhere. Our current era of exponential indicators—like Moore’s Law, the theory that the number of transistors on a microchip double almost every two years—are leading to exponential economic success for those at the top, yet this kind of exponentially groundbreaking phenomena is not what will create better conditions for all people and the entire planet.
On individual and collective levels, we can learn to let go of what no longer serves us. A blind faith that technology will be our salvation is one such belief we need to immediately abandon. Letting go of false assumptions and reestablishing the necessity of human values like respect, solidarity, and cooperation will allow humanity to reclaim authority to create a better future. By freeing up considerable energy toward this pursuit, we can better focus on what resonates with our intuitive impulses toward wellbeing. This means placing the intent of the forces within us toward contributing to a greater good for all to take part in upholding. But that begs an important question: How can we activate this deep transformative potential?
We bear witness to a time of radical transformation through culturally, societally, and environmentally extreme conditions. With rising examples of authoritarian decision-making, a call to action in support of equality and inclusivity must become more amplified. We believe the extreme tension currently being experienced will not result in a breaking point, so much as a massive global shift. This shift will account for a reshaping of societal organization, mainly through a different distribution of wealth. Yet, perhaps the most significant shift that will enable all ensuing change, will begin with a collective shift in consciousness.
From now into 2030, we expect the distrust between people that continues to surface will continue to express itself. Between 2035 and 2050, we expect that the fight for the freedom to live through authentic expressions of working in harmony with one another and nature, will begin to flourish. With this momentum, the transition to a positive meta-paradigm of collaborative partnerships between individuals, communities, companies, and even other species, will help renew every imaginable relationship on our planet.
