“A writer can do nothing for men more necessary, satisfying, than just simply to reveal to them the infinite possibility of their own souls.” – Walt Whitman.
1. QUESTION EVERYTHING:
We are surrounded by certainty, we feel we have somehow stumbled across such original thoughts, we feel our ideas are our own. Yet if we stop to look around, if we step back a moment and take a hard look at what it is that defines us, we can’t help but be struck by the fact that quite a few of our beliefs are shared by society. Have we stopped to think about where our intrinsic beliefs come from? The critical question here is – was it an ingenious act of persuasion? – you know, are we victim to the ancient art of convincing someone to do what you want by coaxing him to believe that it was his idea to begin with?
Just how much of what you think is you is really you? When we begin to ask these questions, we begin to retrace the origins of our very thinking – a kind of thinking that more than often happens to be shared by communities – in other words; a common, fundamental, paradigm. We begin to step back for the first time and see these paradigms as merely one possibility. We begin to ask; why this? Why not that? What empowers me? What imprisons me? What connects me? What alienates me?
We can’t even begin to ask these questions until we stop to retrace the origin of things. This forum is created in this spirit, with great passion and versatility, not for the sake of solutions – but the sake of your infinite possibility. This is the first initiative.
