A great little image of modern life – if you are prepared to look within to the unpleasant aspects of self, and see through them to the greatness that is also present.

Brilliant little piece.
For it correlates beautifully to ideas like Jordan Peterson’s, and the possibilities present in universal abundance, at the same time as it points to the dangers of not examining deeply the incentive structures present in using markets to measure value.
Yes going within is hard, and unpleasant. and we must know ourselves first, at least to the degree that we do. We must be able to see the many layers of our masks, of our patterns, of our hidden incentives to action, at the same time as we find our degrees of freedom, and our responsibility.
And it is powerful to understand the overwhelming evolutionary power of cooperation, and see through the dominant lie that evolution is all about competition.
Evolution certainly can and does have a competitive component, and we are the most cooperative species we know of, and can take cooperation to the next level, if we so choose.
And there must always be a balance between order and chaos!
We need both!!!
