How Art is Going to Save the World

Higher functioning human beings that don’t destroy themselves are usually very creative. In fact, the more creative, the better you’re appreciation for life will inevitably be. The creative see, look, problem solve, innovate, risk take (but not with others’ lives hopefully) and are generally quite brave people. The processes all involve developing the relationship with life that engenders respect. Those who respect don’t harm. So who better suited for leaders, protectors and the guardians of life than those who are appreciating it in all its diverse splendour?

Let the most creative people solve the biggest problems on earth and in no time at all we will make world peace.

There is a book out at the moment and I’ve just downloaded it because I’m impatient like that. It’s called Infinite Progress: How the Internet and Technology will End Ignorance, Disease, Poverty, Hunger and War by Byron Reese. It was by serendipity that I came across his mention in a local magazine.

Here is his website if you want to know more. http://byronreese.com/

Let me know what you think if you read his book. The title alone gives me hope. I’m off to start now but let me leave you with a brief thought.

If we can believe in ourselves enough as people, the net result will be a web of belief that spans around the world. If we can believe that we can and should sort this all out, then perhaps we will see that despite the strength of cosmic and earthly winds, we, masters of survival, innovation and evolution are very talented at making stuff happen with intention.

Like it or not, we’re in it for the long haul, so we may as well put a smile on our face and fly into the wind like it’s no big thing. We’re all naturals.
