The Long Now

Brian Eno: The Big Here and the Long Now [via Scott Rosenberg and Diego Doval]

Some choice quotes:

‘Now’ is never just a moment. The Long Now is the recognition that the precise moment you’re in grows out of the past and is a seed for the future.

Once a dream becomes shared in that way, current reality gets measured against it and then modified towards it. As soon as we sense the possibility of a more desirable world, we begin behaving differently as though that world is starting to come into existence, as though, in our minds at least, we’re already there.

Worth the read (it’s not too long).
