Minding the Future 

Key ideas:

  • Glasgow (and cities like it) could be miners' canaries showing others the way ahead.
  • How do we respond to the modern world? Neurotic response,Psychotic response, Transformation.
  • We all have a story, in the modern world we are all immigrants.
  • Need hospice workers for old world that is dying and midwives for the new world that is being born. In changing times, the collective consciousness must evolve or collapse, emergent new consciousness.
