Nothing is real..... What has been most real to modern civilization, for the past millennium, is the notion of material progress. Progress is the most real artifact of the modern mind, in that it has organized our thoughts and actions, more than any other idea. Quite simply, for the past millennium, we have been stuck on the idea of progress. What now, now that it appears that we are about to come unstuck from that idea? What then will organize our thoughts and actions? Just wondering.......... .
