Our geological community says we are in the Anthropocene era, an era dominated by the impact of human activity on our world. Observations from our scientific community are that we are at a tipping point in the geological evolution of our world. And since we are part of our world, and dependent on our world for our life, our well-being, and our future, a tipping point in the evolution of our world is a turning point in our human journey.

Our human journey is a creative journey. We have contributed to creating our world and our world is contributing to creating us. So we could see the Anthropocene era as the creative era.

Life is a creative experience. We create our experience and our experience creates us. Creating with our experience is how we evolve. Seeing life as a creative experience and seeing our human journey as a creative journey could be how we negotiate our way around our turning point.

A turning point

We have come to where we are now by pursuing our heroic journey of acting on one another and acting on our environment to reach an arrival point of well-being we imagine for ourselves. The idea we have reached a turning point in our creative evolution is a creative idea. An opportunity to have some creative conversation around where we are, how we got here, where we are going, and what we are doing, and to explore, imagine, and create new possibilities for our future and the future of our world.

A turning point in our consciousness of our human impact on the ecology, diversity, environment, and resources of our world. A turning point in our understanding and appreciation of our creative abilities, our ability to create our world, and our ability to contribute to creating a future for our world. A turning point in our social, cultural, and human evolution. A turning point in our creative journey.

Ideas are funny things. Invisible and weightless, they have no material substance, yet they have the power to change the course of history. Or as the French writer Victor Hugo put it: “One can resist invading armies; one cannot resist the invasion of ideas.
