New perspectives

Stewart Brand makes some excellent points in his article about environmentalists and the points of view that predetermine people’s thoughts. By standing in one place and not moving from that spot when viewing the world, the scenery is always the same. If we can collectively move from that comfortable area to a different spot, a couple of things automatically happen. First, we aren’t comfortable so we are more aware of what things look like. We take the time to really notice relationships. Then, just by virtue of this changed perspective, we are seeing different things.

Suspending assumptions. Getting a new view. Being prepared to really look once you find your new location.

It will be interesting for us to explore our assumptions so we can then make that change. I look forward to the dialogue.
