What the conference revealed to me […] is that our civilization has not quite yet reached the point of readiness for a new story.”
The Wild Edge of Emergence
Ian MacKenzie

I suppose that begs the question, even allowing for the effluxion of time since the event was held, when, if ever, will a new story emerge? Also, I don’t think it’s a case of letting go, but cleaving to the extant narrative because it feels ‘right’. Not right in the sense that it’s fulfilling of our personhood or interconnectedness but right in the sense that it gives us most of what we want save, perhaps, for a deep soulful meaning into life. — Julian
