    Christina, Thanks for sharing that quotation and your questions. I like them. Yeah what would it look like?

    I’m curious to hear more of his thoughts on that topic and yours too. I always wonder how ideas reach their moment and quicksilvery flow through a people. If I had to guess about the 3-5%, I’d guess it to be the top people in academia, corporations, policy-making, and government for the tipping point to work. Having met farmers and simple people in this world, I don’t think the beatific vision is lost on them. I think it’s lost on the most educated and powerful, sadly. But then there’s (possibly many?) would-be brilliants that hide their lights under a basket because of a hostile environment. Maybe that’s where the small percentage makes a big difference; first the status quo embankment is breached, then the river starts to rush.

    I think it’s a lovely question to ponder, what it looks like for us personally to “really get” the message. I’m with you in that question.
