While the interface between science and consciousness has been refined considerably over the last ten years, it has become harder to act on the disturbing geopolitical information available on the internet in a way that is consistent with the belief in an emerging culture of love. The public is manipulated with Machiavellian cynicism and pacified with weapons of mass distraction while the business-as-usual show rolls on. But for how long? How can we sustain a positive vision for the future in the midst of the shifting confusion of our time?
