Because of western ways of thinking, business, etc, we have a tendency to think we are separate beings, mostly because we locate ourselves to the boundary of our physical bodies. But we all know our feelings are contagious, whether in cinemas or festivals, meetings or dinner parties, and we know about viral memes through books, radio, TV, internet, whether lolcat videos or political agendas.
You, the body that you are in, is part of the network of bodies sitting in front of their phones and computers, walking streets or hills, eating, sleeping, dancing, doing whatever each one of us is doing. Whether we think about the network of our families, our friends, work colleagues, team supporters or religious members, music fans or film fanatics, city or national citizens, these are all sub-networks within the network of relations we are part of. The real and actual network of human relations, as real as (or more real than) the network of computers and websites of the internet.
Each one of us, is one of all of us.
You may think you are reading this as part of work, or in your spare time, separate from family life or whatever other social context we swim into and out of on a daily basis. We may read history books, or thumb through social media feeds, as if we are separate from history. But you are, in fact, immersed, in the flow of time.
We are part of the flow of history. We are the creators of the future. Always. Realising this, is the source of our power. Enacting it together, is world-change.
