Looking back on 2018, there were two insights that changed how I see everything. First, everything we need, for that which is in front of us to do, is already right here, available right now. Second, the people who are figuring this out are no longer just the lucky, weird few; there are lots of them everywhere.
FREEE energy is everywhere. The energy we need to do whatever we can imagine is right here right now, right in front of us, and it is FREEE. The amount of energy each human being releases in any given moment is huge, and our current forms of engaging it are very weak. They don’t have to be. We can learn from social experimenters who are learning how to engage people in purposes and processes, consciously choosing collaborative agreements that release this massive energy available, transforming it and transferring it into a far greater impact with far greater resilience. It just depends on what you give your energy to. The tools of pactoecography let us see this energy, where it is, how it is released, how it is transformed, and how it is transferred.
Positive ecosynomic deviants are no longer deviants. They are now normal. 15 years ago I was able to find only a few, seemingly rare groups that were working with abundance-based principles for how they approached life and the impact they wanted to have together. Today I see them everywhere, and lots of people are talking about them. I will be co-investing in 2019 with the Global Pactoecographic Collaborative to map the social topography of the planet, through the Global Initiative to Map Ecosynomic Deviance and Impact Resilience. We know about the topography of the Earth’s geology and biology: now it’s time to understand the topology of human agreements. What do they look like around the world, at their best and at their normal? Where can we learn from deep and successful human experimentation in healthy agreements? Let’s see.
We have the energy we need, and lots of people are figuring this out. Let’s get with it.
