    [FutureBuddha] A NEW HOPE! (5)


    I offer a message of hope, for a better world.

    Some folks call me too optimistic and utopian. Other folks immediately judge that anything about technology and the future is negative and dystopian. I try to strike a rational and evidence based positivist balance, while also teaching in the Soto Zen tradition that, mystically, there is a wonder, peace and timeless harmony at the heart of all passing time and strife in this world ...

    Thus, I might call myself a ...

            A very important message, the future relies on people that have hope in it

                One argument in favor of civilization is what Byung-Chul Han said

                Multitasking is commonplace among wild animals. It is an attentive technique indispensable for survival in the wilderness
                We owe the cultural achievements of humanity -which include philosophy -to deep, contemplate attention. Culture presumes an environment in which deep attention is possible.
