The 'Redesigning Society' series will capture some expert
perspectives on the current state of societal affairs, as well as
the collective change we desperately need both philosophically and
It also aims to amplify mainstream
engagement in how we should globally move forward for ourselves and
our future generations.
Make no mistake about it; there is a growing community
'awakening' people who are engaged in a core dialogue about what it
means to be human at the start of the 21st Century.
This awakening is a natural evolution
for human consciousness and is composed of two overarching parts.
First is a deep realization of the innate interdependence we have
with the entirety of reality, regardless if we look at it through
the lenses of ecology, quantum physics or spirituality.
The second is recognizing the social and
systemic dysfunction that requires collective action to be
transcended by redesigning our society to reflect the new era that
humanity is adventuring into.
A collective awakening, driven by individual awakenings, has been a
long time in the making.
Inspiringly we are becoming increasingly
closer to the tipping point for a society which has disconnected
from the dominant worldviews and has awakened to their
'connection-through-consciousness' and the need for serious social
The tipping point is estimated to be
between 10 and 20% of the population; think of it like a fad that
quickly grips the collective mindset, such as a particular fashion.
Once the required threshold is reached, it is inevitable for the
masses to become aware of these 'truths' no matter how conditioned
into mainstream 'beliefs' they might currently be.
The reality is that throughout the uniting global culture, which is
a natural manifestation of modern day society, individuals are
increasingly moving one of two ways:
they are either opening up to
the interconnection of life, including with Mother Earth and every
person on her
they are going further into the
depths of a disconnected and meaningless world
However many are stuck in the middle, mostly due to the 'scientism'
that has damaged our collective philosophical health.
Unsurprisingly the data accumulating
from the quantum sciences is increasingly making it clearer that the
rebirth of this ancient wisdom and tribal philosophy is a rational
and evidence-based path for our future.
Once this meta-paradigm is embraced on a planetary scale it will
impact our value systems at a fundamental level because it will
revolutionize how we collectively respect each other and our natural
This understanding is also important for
the health and sanity of the individual because without it, the
issues that plague our beautiful existence can become a little
overwhelming - both emotionally and psychologically - especially
when we don't contextualize them into this more holistic picture.
One of the biggest issues faced by humanity, most prominently in the
Western World, is being virtually enslaved to dysfunctional and
unhealthy theories and practices.
These systems have been amplified by a
hidden aristocracy, or 'shadow-government', who are the real power
brokers of our world. This can be hard to accept, but true
Yet due to the instantaneous sharing of information across our
globe, for the first time in the known history of humanity we can
unite the people of earth to achieve a common goal: we the people,
not the elite, will control our own destiny.
Since humanity's conception there has
always been an 'empire' that has controlled the paths that we
collectively forge, but now so many grass roots movements have
emerged in response to the unhealthy and superficial 'programs' that
we've been conditioned into since birth and are making slow but
positive change in a wide array of areas for our future.
Truthful information is reaching
the world to combat the lies of
the mainstream media
Political parties are emerging
to remove big money from the sell-out of our democracy
Economic models are being
designed to provide wealth and abundance for the people
The dogma of the scientific
establishment, which has been hijacked by corporate
interests and ideological bias, is
Local communities are being
built from the ground up to meet the true needs of each
other, their environment and future generations
Healthy food is being produced
in local, ethical and sustainable ways
The biodiversity of life on our
planet is being supported to ensure it doesn't just survive,
Kids are being taught the true
values and lessons of life that are
missing from our
The beautiful truth is that more and
more people are disconnecting from the false truths which permeate
our 'accepted' views of existence.
These delusions have been spread like
wildfire through the corporate owned-and-controlled mainstream media
but their reign is ending because of a greater accessibility to
information that is more closely aligned with the truth.
This has been a direct result of the
technological and digital revolutions, as well as the rise of
Of course many of the worldviews or beliefs heralded by the
conventional channels have a lot truth woven through them, which is
partly why they're so convincing.
However, as previously alluded, the most
pervading and damaging deception is the unwise and dogmatic
philosophy of a purely mechanical and material universe which has
been 'unscientifically' adopted by the academic and scientific
This 'false assumption' is a metaphysics
because it attempts to explain the fundamental nature of existence,
however it has infiltrated Western value systems and produced
unhealthy individual, social and environmental impacts as a result.
It's also what is omitted from these 'modern-day fairy tales' which
can be the most harmful, such as the information which is avoided to
maintain the status quo.
Plus, when we're born into a world where
the majority of people uncritically accept what is being said in
their papers and on their screens, it is uncomplicated to understand
why the masses have unconsciously fallen so easily into this trap.
There are several principal ideologies, among other sub-divisions,
which have maintained hegemony over the collective consciousness
during the last millennia.
Chronologically they occurred as,
...all of which
have exceedingly amplified a collective disconnection from nature.
Obviously these ideologies have some associated goodness; however,
the masses have been conditioned to thoughtlessly accept them which
has resulted with toxic levels of,
intolerance, hatred, greed,
selfishness, isolation, competition, aggression, dishonesty,
cruelty, laziness, obsession and vanity, among many others.
There is also a widening wealth
inequality gap with so many people continuing to suffer from
socioeconomic disadvantage such as ill-health, poverty and
But finally, for the benefit of our species, these paradigms of
mental and behavioral control are cracking through their weaknesses
and elucidating right before our rational minds and intuitive
This is definitely emerging as the most
inspiring, empowering and enlightening time to be alive on planet
The Topics and
What follows are some of the topics that need greater attention in
our mainstream conversations to assist humanity's inevitable
awakening to the innate entanglement, symbolism and sentience of
reality, as well as some of the systemic change needed to reflect
this new era.
This project is an evolving process, so
they'll also be a few surprises along the way too.

Redesigning Society packages together a plethora of specialist
information which is essential to enter into mainstream thought and
It is not intended to be 'blindly
believed' by its audience; instead it is devised as a platform for
its participants to launch into their own robust research and
analysis, as well as spark healthy and productive debate among
family, friends and peers, especially with those who have not yet
been exposed to this type of discussion.
The project also strongly encourages people to comprehensively sift
through the lies, manipulation and propaganda that plague the
mainstream media and the stories they tell. It is of our belief that
everybody deserves that freedom and clarity of mind.
In addition, the rabbit hole goes much deeper than what will be
discussed here; however this series is intended to challenge those
who 'believe' the mainstream worldview in a way which isn't too
confronting to comprehend.

with your peers.
How far this series reaches will be entirely up to the audience, so
a big thanks to everyone who participates throughout the ride. We
promise it's not just going to be informative, but enjoyable too.
