How Will We Live Tomorrow? Responses – 2

How will we live tomorrow?

“I have two answers to the question. Literally, tomorrow we will live life as today, with too small a degree of change to notice. That could wind us up in a bad spot.

“Two hundred fifty years from now, there will still be widgets that claim to alleviate our suffering. But they won’t. Materialism and fear resonate. We feel incompetent without a sense of suffering.

“We are the agents of evolution. If I say, ‘I love you’ to everyone I meet for 24 hours, that creates an evolutionary energy. If I sit home by myself for that time, that creates a different type of evolution.”

Andrew Wood, Gas Equals Time, Cambridge, MA

How will we live tomorrow?

“I think we will live tomorrow the way we live today. However, I hope that we live tomorrow more conscientiously, in a way that values the group. I want us to find fulfillment in deciding to live in a community way.”

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
