News and Notes
Erik, in brief, I can only say that none of us know - and that we all bring our baggage to the departures lounge. So, I will go back, check the links, think through it (or attempt to) again. I have a lot of respect for Eisenstein although, personally, I am on a somewhat different trajectory. I also have no respect or much time for most conspiracy theory because I’m simplistic enough to find Occam’s razor a valuable tool. In addition, I spend comparatively little time online and just about no time in cities, I am almost always surrounded by trees and vegetation - so my tuning is different than that of many. Ahhh, but once upon a time I was as urban as could be! Even miss it on occasion, but would not trade what I have now for what I thought I had then.
Gotta say that Charles Eisenstein is well worth reading and far from a conspiracist. His thinking is both deep and holistic - and, not to be overly dismissive, worth more than all those links to various other writers put together. Guess I’m saying that I think the caveat should be replaced by a recommendation.
