Are you old enough to remember the early days of personal computers and the acronym wysiwyg which stood for what you see is what you get and meant what you saw on your monitor would match the finished document when it was printed. I wonder if wysiwyg applies to more than old computer operating systems.
What does the real world look like to you?
Survival of the fittest?
Might makes right?
A giant conspiracy theory?
The version of the Golden Rule which says, “The one with the gold rules?”
Does the real world look like today’s headlines in the news?
I am not naive.
I know the world often looks like that and feels like that.
What if the real world actually looks something like this?
More cooperation than competition?
More kindness and compassion than greed and violence?
More goodness than hatred?
More treating others the way they and we would like to be treated?
More beauty than ugliness?
What if that is the real world?
The world out there?
That world waiting for us to see it and name it and live in it.?
