10. Planetary Context

At Inception, the context was presumed to be a time of Meta Crisis in the 2020s, where the systems and Existing Order would shake and reorder in unprecedented ways.

It was presumed that the Default Trajectory was towards Collapse and Chaos, but that before the existing order collapsed, there was a brief period of Time during which the Human System and Living System could potentially leap forward together into some kind of Higher Order Functional Unity that would enable it to meet the needs, solve the problems, and accomplish the goals at hand.

It was further assumed that the Corrupt and Willfully Blind Old Leaders, Old Institutions, and Old System would be unable or unwilling to competently respond in Time, and that something New was required to connect and empower Us, The People to think, move, and respond together.
