"When faced with the sort of predicament we currently find ourselves in, even more existential questions might dominate our thinking, such as Is there more to life than working hard, buying stuff, taking on debt, and getting older? or even What's the meaning of life? The primary narrative telling us that we are supposed to work hard, consume harder, and keep ourselves centered on the treadmill that we seem to have been born upon is beginning to unravel.

-- This was a really good and useful read. And if you are sensing that an awakening of massive change in consciousness is underway. You're right. As I have said consistently for so long, everything we accept as a fundamental, unquestioned truth is on the table now. That's because the unquestioned truths are what we had to tear down anyway. And it was never going to be that any real progress, or evolution, could occur until that happened. Good job, Chris.-- MCR
