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 ñ 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).
