Three Key Questions

There are three questions that consistently run through these social experiments:

  1. Is it possible to create projects and situations that are appropriate to what is really needed? Can one’s imagination rise above the conventional ways of living and working to co-create new ways that are more satisfying and bigger in their capacity to be inclusive?
  2. Is it possible to create truly inter-dependent models where individuality can flourish without being entirely self-centred and where one’s sense of relatedness is experienced as strength not weakness?
  3. Is it possible to build life-styles and working arrangements that – whilst they may transmute into new forms and evolve in unexpected ways – have strong enough foundations to be sustainable without over-reliance on one or two charismatic personalities?
  4. To quote Rainer Maria Rilke:

    “You must give birth to your images.
    They are the future waiting to be born.
    Fear not the strangeness you feel.
    The future must enter you long before it happens,
    Just wait for the birth, for the hour of the new clarity.”
