Having a Conversation As If Our Lives Depended On It

We need a new vision. The last big wave was about becoming self-aware and the one that’s coming is about thinking of ourselves together. For our best chance to handle threats from nature and from ourselves we need a shift of worldview to where we relate to one another cooperatively.

This is a call to people who have a passion for the greater good to engage in a dialogue about what to do to bring about this shift. That’s what this conversation is for — to look for what changes could be made that move us into caring for each other as much as we care about ourselves.

Is there some idea you have for helping that shift come about? Mine is to get everyone talking about the need for a new worldview. Until we get an understanding about this, we’ll be seeing the trees and ignoring the forest. Would you have another idea about where a focus should be?

In this video, I talk about a topic that’s percolating in our world: universal basic income.Three years ago I produced a program about it, A World Without Work, when people in the States had hardly heard of it, and now it’s showing up everywhere: Hawaii has just adopted it, Elon Musk touts it, and it was the feature story on CBS Sunday Morning. But what never is mentioned is how it would change our worldview, which is my main interest — and why I got so involved in the crop circle phenomenon. How do we go from greed to compassion as the basic way we relate to one other? What can bring that out?

I invite you to dialogue about this in the Conversation As If Our Lives Depended On It. Hope to see you there!
