If we continue to nvent the atomic bomb with cavalier disregard for the
consequences, they will be dire for as long as the creators don't take
responsibility for the impact of their creations. If anything, the global
village environment should've made it clear to each and all that we are indeed
connected and responsible for the whole lot of us.

I do happen to agree with Doug's view of high performance 'outpost' leading us
into the future and out of the current threatening stuation [created by our
lack of perspective as a community, I might add] in just the nick of time to
escape our own extinction [through moral irresponsibility], quite possibly.

I find it very excited that we are, in fact, on the verge of unleashing the
necessary technology. But before What I would like to insist on the moral
dimension of Doug's attempt to bring people and organizations together in the
bootstrapping effort. To me it's a matter of doing things in the most
effective way: any and all technological advances will be quite meaningless if
humanity manages to self-distruct anyway. It follows that it would be a
complete waste of time and effort to pursue any, in the absence of synchronous
constant attention given to our co-evolution as a constructive society as

What I propose then, is that the technological efforts ahould be bootstrapped
with the advances of high performance teams/organizatons working in the areas
of human evolution on the 'soft' organizational requirements. What kind of
people will those be who will be capable of wielding all the technological
progress that's been talked about at the colloquium for progerss not for
personal instant gratification? For co-evolution not for war (which bringe
huge almost instanteneous profits)? So far the conclusion of the discussion
here, on our list, seems to have been that the answer cannot be found in
today's corporations.

I propose that any effort of finding technological answers to our problems as
a global society should be accomponied by an equal effort to develop
techniques of evolving our conscience / self-awareness / spiritual dimension.
