An idea worth spreading
I am concerned. Concerned and excited. There is a real possibility, and a certainty, colliding. Never before have this many minds been connected. Never before have so many people spoken the same language. Never before have we been able to have such a long term effect on our own environment.
What I am so concerned about, and with, is the possibility we have, in this moment, to connect our efforts. These efforts, when de-coupled from the pursuit of separated profit might lead to a world we could not imagine; alone. Blocks remain, and remind us of the immense workload of such an undertaking. It is not a simple task, and may not even be a task of rewards felt by this generation. In this regard, we must seek our reward in the challenge. The very opportunity to approach this challenge has depended on millennia of building efforts.
