As the designer of the first Neurology practice within Second Life, I am compelled to tip my hat to the author of this amazing nexus piece. If these are simply the author’s musings, as disclaimed, I shudder to think of the impact that a more seriously written piece would create.
From multiple perspectives, it is getting harder to deny that our world is already undergoing the beginning of the acceleration into the knee of an exponential curve. Or, more accurately, the sum of multiple superimposed exponential curves.
My primary question for everyone is: “Are you prepared?” Prepared mentally for the challenges to come? Prepared physically to handle the rigorous demands that we will all face with some certainty? Prepared spiritually, if for no other reason that it is good insurance, but maybe also because spirituality provides a useful tool for tolerating perturbations, by shoring up reserve?
The truth is that nobody is prepared. Nobody. We cannot even begin to fathom what the fast part of the exponential change curve will do to us. But there is some predictability that is accessible to some degree. Follow us here and we will start to reveal that, to prepare our civilization to not only tolerate but embrace our new selves in the close years to come.
