Remind me of Kevin Kelly question: what kind of myth will we subscribe into?

56/ We don't have the science to create that future, but that actually doesn't matter. The currency from an imaginary, impossible future can sustain the economy of a real present and create real futures.

57/ When we take such futures too literally, to be actually realized in literal ways rather than as a basis for a currency of meaning (a superset of economic currencies), we get uncritical religion.

Great list to think about how we think about money

Though most of us resent the idea of the government bailing out fat cats, pure Darwinist “let ’em pay the costs” opinions miss the fact that the world is not only like an ecosystem of many organisms, but also like a single connected living thing. You can cause a lot of pain or kill the whole thing if you are not careful. This is also the sort of metaphor switch that made Bill Gates switch from wealth creation to AIDS fighting.

"Is it really revolutionary that we can now make more things in our classrooms and garages, mostly which we don’t really need?

So here’s to our makers of poetry, philosophies, and dance moves. Here is to our makers of food and friendships. These heroes should be celebrated and be role models for our students and kids to discover the magic of making in a world beyond things."
