It's All About What's Doable
Once I was invited to eco-futurist Man Dauncey's guide presentation of 'Journey to the Future' at his house the timing was unbelievable. As somebody who likes to share nice concepts, I simply needed to put it on the market in all its simplicity in hopes that folks may severely begin to 'get it'.
On this final of environmentally-friendly futures we get a peek into an alternate actuality that’s already within the making for these visionaries who know the phrase 'potential'. Think about Vancouver, BC within the yr 2032 as a metropolis brimming with revolutionary applied sciences which have leap-frogged far past fossil gas dependency and dysfunctional politics to create a really purposeful ecotopian life-style with syntropy at its basis.
I like brilliance and I even have a few of my very own, however right here Man encapsulates and incorporates working fashions from world wide together with his personal eco-know-how, and lets his creativeness work to course of a pictorial story that everybody can relate to.
Vibrant Change With out the Shock
The modifications that must occur aren’t a shock to the system – removed from it. They’re easy shifts in our considering that we make for ourselves slightly than those our authorities imposes on us; our personal option to launch ourselves from the disturbing life-style that’s assured to worsen if we proceed on this similar method.
Some options have a familial factor in that communities of persons are extra vibrant due to the diminished sense of loneliness ensuing from raised citizen camaraderie. Some are pure unbridled earthy creations with lush foliage woven into the architectural design of buildings, streets and cement partitions – bringing us nearer to nature's restorative powers.
It's no shock the solar performs an enormous half in our quasi-realistic future, and with so some ways to harness that immense energy we'll be paying pennies per kilowatt. It solely is sensible as a result of the solar freely provides the power away with out the necessity for dams or turbines – we’ve got the know-how and we have to develop our use of it.
Clear Course With out Compromise
Driving house from his guide presentation I sensed an ambiance of anticipation I hadn't recalled since I left house and stepped out into the world alone; an adolescent with a thoughts stuffed with surprise excited to be out in an important massive stunning world. The one distinction now could be a heightened vigilance in blocking the psycho-political risks that might suck the life out of that massive stunning world, with me in it … and I'm not alone in my perspective.
It's been very clear these previous years that many minds are evolving into this self-organizing mode of considering that permits us to troop collectively from our personal initiative right into a unified understanding in our want for a wholesome planet. It's as if the Earth itself is utilizing its magnetism to get us feeling linked to it once more and the cosmos is sending ideas which are wealthy with ripe options to those that are open-minded sufficient to pay attention.
