One brain, two different takes on reality - here you will discover the power of the mind; it's origins, the problems with modern living, and the thinking we need to escape it. With each crisis and wave of disruption, I ponder - what are we missing, are our ideas incomplete, or simply wrong? Emerging trends point to a new way of understanding who we are, how we relate to others, and the need to reconnect with nature. Divergent modes for living, learning, working, and organising are starting to evolve. I spent much of my life confused, seemingly swimming against the tide and often embracing counter-intuitive ideas... but I now recognise this was a necessary process to personally transform in preparation for an uncertain future, and a paradigm shift.
