--At the moment, fear seems to be making people
withdraw into isolated groups to maintain personal
sanity. If that is happening on a fractal level, it
will be difficult to patch all the little groups
together to maintain social cohesion when it becomes
critically important. But I think as fear increases,
there will be a point where people stop retreating
behind their castle walls and start making the
connective leaps necessary to put Humpty back together
again. Without internet, I'd be much less optimistic.
Synergy is automatic once people have no other options
but to reach out to others.
"Beslan is a call to America to remember the candles, the flowers, and the grief that united us in the aftermath of 9/11. On this day, if we turn down the volume, our ears will catch an echo of that still, small voice once again. We may not know where the road will take us, but we owe it to the worlds children to return to the starting point before we have gone so far that we cant turn back." - Bill Wiser
"We're doomed, guys! It turns out, if we don't hurry up and change the world, the world changes us!" - Cartoon character, Mafalda
