How long have I loved thee, dear Human Network? Let me count the years, since my birth into my loving family, and since my youthful awakening, at age 18, sitting at the feet of Père Pierre, saint of human networks, who wrote again and again about his powerful vision of the planetization of consciousness.
Every person I have loved, appreciated, talked with, liked or disliked, or noticed, has been an experience in the network of consciousness. It is a network for loving, entertaining, trading, learning, making things and buying them, earning a living, and living. It is a network for fighting, ha! Competing, ha! The network always both wins and loses. It grows and shrinks, but now mostly grows, grows more and more threatened by its own incoherence, and ever more heartened by its own brilliance, and compassion, and inspired by its search for solutions to its – our — survival and fulfillment.
