humanity came to the table

sustainable abundance time.

we have plenty.

talent inclusion.

what’s happening – at a meta level..


moonshot thinking:

Moonshots live in the gray area between audacious technology and pure science fiction. Instead of a mere 10% gain, a moonshot aims for a 10x improvement over what currently exists. The combination of a huge problem, a radical solution to that problem, and the breakthrough technology that just might make that solution possible, is the essence of a moonshot. 

we don’t know how to do it yet, but we’re going to do it anyway..
