"Don’t worry, you’re not going to get hurt. As a matter of fact, for the vast majority of the people involved it’s going to feel really good. So good, in fact, that you’ll wonder why this revolution isn’t already underway."
Want to see all the great stuff that's around the bend-after-next in our culture? Some of it barred from the public dialogue. Stuff you can get NOW?
Proven goodies; healing, cheap (to the point of costing nothing), sometimes mind-stopping. Many so revolutionarily good they're illegal or at least harshly suppressed or studiously ignored by most mainstream forces in the G-8.
We can pick a very different world right off the shelf. Just choosing that would be the biggest paradigm shift.

The Revolution Has Begun - "The Shift Hits the Fan"
By Kenny Ausubel
Co-CEO and Founder, Bioneers
Opening the Bioneers Conference, October 15th, 2010, San Rafael, California
The Bottleneck. The Great Disruption. Peak Everything. The Great Turning.
Whatever you call it, it's the big enchilada.
In the words of filmmaker Tom Shadyac, "The shift is hitting the fan." We're experiencing the dawn of a revolutionary transformation. This awkward 'tween state marks the end of pre-history - the sunset of an ecologically illiterate civilization. Like a baby being born, a new world is crowning.
The revolution has begun. But in fits and starts. The challenge is it's one minute to midnight - too late to avoid large-scale destruction. We have to fan the shift to ecoliterate societies at sufficient scale and speed to dodge irretrievable cataclysm.
From breakdown to breakthrough, it's a revolution from the heart of nature and the human heart. It leads with a basic shift in our relationship with nature from resource and object to mentor, model and partner. Game-changing breakthroughs in science, technology and design such as biomimicry are revolutionizing our very ways of knowing. The Rights of Nature movement is recognizing the inalienable rights of the non-human world of ecosystems and critters, widening our circle of compassion and kinship. Greater decentralization and localization are building resilience from the ground up - shaped by ancient indigenous wisdom of becoming native to our place.
