JD’s full-time mission is to lead the wider culture toward a worldview that’s better aligned with how reality works. The currently dominant worldview of separation and exploitation offers only imminent planetary catastrophe. To be effective in creating more sustainable systems, we must change the way we think. But how?! We could look for insight from how reality works. More under Revelations and Insights and Mission.
