This is my first journal entry that features another project. I find Michaels project so compelling and aligned with my beliefs. It models our axiom "You can't get there from HERE but you can get HERE from there. In other words, today is too full of baggage, fear, frustration, and talk of what we don't want. Leaping out and having the courage to create a "new world" is the only way to go. While I have every person, every client I work with learn to do backcasting from 2040 or 2050 and gain an ability to play with the future, to design possibilities and potential, to explore the natural emergence that will erupt and disrupt our thoughts, making room for viable fresh ideas that can create a better future, this bold 2030 project is where we can design as a whole living system for all life.
Another one of the MG Taylor axioms is "The future is only rational in hindsight" rings true. This is why any robust project like 2030 needs to attract people to come together and model preferred future. Together we have tremendous energy and know how to work with ideas, to mix and match, to integrate, and explore how to proceed with the least negative unanticipated consequences.
I'm looking forward to finding ways for Tomorrow Makers play a role as an organization and for me as a tomorrow maker. Together, we can help 2030 be rich and vital for all species. This is going to be quite an adventure!
In assembling complexity the bounty of increasing returns is won by multiple tries over time. As various parts reorganize to a new whole, the system escapes into a higher order. Ilya Prigogine
