This morning I dashed off an 'invocation' to the Simon Ensor spearheaded project, Clavier. Here is what I wrote:
This page not left intentionally blank. It is an invocation. Let’s work slantwise and humble as we realize that we cannot manage complexity. Instead we must live in it and share it and work locally with others to learn. Otherwise we fall prey to the same hypocrisies and power relations we have always fallen prey to. Intractable problems arise from the past. Solutions can’t arise from there, hence the word ‘intractable’. We need new solutions that come from a creative field that draws us from the future-what has been called ‘feedforward’. We cannot deny the past, but we cannot deny that new ideas are created everyday. We have every reason to be hopeful--if we make a new road together by walking it.
