You cannot change the way all of humanity is going, you can only pick the lane that you’re going to be in, as it changes.

You cannot change the way all of humanity is going, you can only pick the lane that you’re going to be in, as it changes.


Do you know what your place is, in the pantheon of humanity?

It is easy to stand on the sidelines, presuming and judging like an armchair quarterback, but does that ultimately serve you?

It is true that we are always trying to anticipate how and where the cumulative societies of planet Earth are leading us, but those assertions do not ultimately lead to any major shift in those evolutions, except on very few rare occasions.

Given that, we are continually plagued by the fear that what we are doing is remaining passive and hoping for the best. 

And in some cases that might actually be true. It is incumbent upon all of us to clearly recognize the changes as being what they will be, such that we might ultimately determine to the best of our ability, how and where we belong within that changing infrastructure.

You might look at the continual wave of disruptive variables, be they economic, climate, sociological, governmental, medical, scientific, or technological, and within the each of those verticals, feel wholly incapable of bringing any impact to bear upon all of them. Even if you are akin to my frame of mind in which you believe that one person can change the world… No one person can change all of the world.

Concurrently, it is not only pragmatic, but essential, that we might clearly identify these issues, and figure out what we are going to do for ourselves, our friends and family, in order to sustain.

This has been a factor that humanity has dealt with, since the outset…various circumstances or neighboring tribe circumstances, impact the flux of humanity, causing us all to continue to operate as best as we may, with the information at our disposal.

For all intent and purposes, this still remains an integral component of survival for the human species.

So whether you are trepidatious about artificial intelligence, human cloning, nuclear energy and weapons, or any other cutting edge, technological variable that potentially brings confusion and danger to our species, you are still ultimately facing the same criteria… What will we do to survive and how are we going to allow this to impact our lives or are we willing to potentially dissociate ourselves from any of this knowledge and instead recognize that if we have no power to impact those issues, are they really our problem to solve or fret about?

Happy Friday!

Artificial Intelligence has kindly interpreted my concerns about it and provided this metaphorical image to sate my curiosity.

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
