Given how much time we have (or don’t), shouldn’t we be sprinting?
This spot in time, my time – your spot, your time – some spot?
Real time – nothing virtual/theoretical; being alive at this SPOT IN TIME, can that unify us?
For what purpose, to what end?
If we all focused on something, at ONE moment, couldn’t we move masses to action?
Think of schools of fish.
What makes them turn one way, or another, completely synchronized?
They are like minded at the same spot in time.
Can that happen for us?
We are, none of us, alike – but if enough of us are like-minded, no matter where we are we have that same capacity to be ‘in the same moment in time’ AND capable of moving in one direction, one voice, like that school of fish. AND, if we can do that, we can do anything …
True, we could change the world all by ourselves.
Remarkable people have changed the world that way (most engaged a large supporting cast) – but my point is this: why go it alone when going in a group is less risky and more likely to succeed?
Single fish swimming alone are vulnerable and all alone …
But, schools of fish take on different dimensions well beyond ‘safety in numbers’ philosophy. To me, more of a ‘look what we can do together’ dynamic AND power (so unexplored, so exciting) whereby minds can connect. AND move as one.
