Connect humankind on a forward trajectory of dreams & desires... with one simple idea....

IF... we share our dreams for ourselves in one sentence, and in a second sentence share our dream for others [or the world] ...

THEN... with these two vital data points, can we can begin to support each other and link on common goals and progressive conversations towards our dreams?

Yes, there are blogs, clubs, organizations that connect people on common interest, but how often are we able to declare our dreams out load, place intent and purpose, into a group of smart, caring, inventive people? I believe TED is that group... and this is a great place to start, it just takes a few leaders like you to begin...


Closing Statement from Terry Torok

if people could know just two things about each other... the dream for themselves and their dream for others...
i believe we could create a more peaceful, prosperous path of compassion and completion.

  • Mar 7 2012: My dream for the future of humanity to embrace truth. When you have people like T. Boone Pickens selling his cause at TED to "get off foreign oil" and everyone cheers and applauds him for his message, one has to look beyond his words and see the ugly truth behind his message. The idea that if the USA stops importing oil from other nations alluding that energy would be cheap and accessible to all is simply a lie. He doesn't tell you that the oil that sold on an open global market to the highest bidder. He never advocates for nationalizing the oil so that it belongs to the citizens of the US so that "getting off of foreign oil" has any effect. He doesn't tell you how any fossil fuels extracted from the USA are the property of the companies. And that those companies will sell to whoever will pay the most. He never once mentioned how the US has become a net exporter of gasoline and the US has reduced the consumption of gasoline over the past year yet prices continue to rise. I don't see how a group of our elites attending TED can't see through his transparency.

    My dream is for humanity to start telling the truth, the real truth.
