Our sphere of knowledge is shifting: we need to respond to this shift now

We need to update the epistemic sphere to include current information that makes clear the human impact on the rest of the biosphere. We need to update how we see ourselves in relation to context, so that, for instance, we begin to understand and appreciate that the shared global commons is shared not just with other humans, but with everything that exists on this planet. We need to shift our sense of agency so we stop imagining that this is a top down approach, some willed event happening in the mental plane that gets translated into practice. Instead, we need to understand ourselves as entirely reacting within context, but with the capacity to get an insight into what is going on by ‘waking up’, or realising, our current situation. We need to enact these changes now, as a matter of prime importance, as though our lives depended on it. In a very real sense, they do. The story we tell ourselves about what is going on is, at the moment, killing us, causing immense suffering among the vast majority of humans, and destroying the very fabric of the ecological stability that supports and sustains our own health and well-being: our very survival.
