  • What I'm trying to say here is

  • that The Zeitgeist Movement really operates on multiple levels

  • and we need to figure out ways to increase those levels.

  • Let's assume for a moment that we could never obtain

  • a resource-based economy - hypothetic. Let's assume for a moment

  • that that's just not going to happen.

  • Does that mean the values of the Movement are not applicable?

  • Does that mean that

  • promoting the idea that we should relate things to physical referents,

  • to the planet, and using science

  • can't be also utilized in ... detached ways?

  • Does that mean the philosophy of taking everything into account

  • and understanding peoples' indoctrinations and what generates aberrant behavior,

  • does that mean all of that information is thrown out the window

  • if we can not obtain a Resource-Based Economy?

  • The point at hand is that we're shaping behavior all the time.

  • And even if we affect one person in a way

  • that enlightens their worldview to see each other more as equals,

  • to see the need to be sustainable with a direct physical referent,

  • to listen to the natural world and appreciate what

  • the beauty of science has to offer about ... the world we live in,

  • about how we view the world.

  • If we can simply get one person to take that view,

  • I think we've hit a unique accomplishment.

  • So keep that in mind a little bit

  • when you think about what your involvement in the Movement actually is.

  • Realize that it's a multi-faceted position of influence.

  • There is no ... endgame. It's not just "Ooh, a Resource-Based Economy!"

  • We're doing something of a cultural significance

  • that I think is deeply profound and transitional

  • in our educational processes.

  • And, this is probably self-evident to most of you out there,

  • but I feel the need to state it. So there it is.
