Archetypes as Evolutionary Tools
The first step in building a promising future for humanity is to visualize it together. As the bible says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Although many people can visualize a future of catastrophe and ruin, far fewer can imagine a future of opportunity and renewal. This is understandable as daily we are fed news reports of global climate disruption, running out of cheap oil, species extinction, weapons of mass destruction, and more. Not surprisingly, a future of conflict and suffering is easy to imagine while a future of harmony and health is still a vague and unformed possibility in our collective imagination.
