Ivory Tower’s Massive Disconnect with Reality

Repost from Soundoff

Stepping back from the colossal influx, bombardment, of business’s “big ideas”, “innovation”, “active ingredients necessary for sustaining continuous innovation”, “using the power of certainty to drive growth in an uncertain world”, etc., etc., (from the experts) ............................we must ask, with all this novel input:


Is there a total disconnect, breakdown between “innovation”, “creativity” inputs, and the collective summation of output?

I concur, the eventual total destruction of all life IS a “BIG IDEA”, but positively is NOT “INNOVATION”

 What obvious ingredients, so necessary to sustain life, progress and growth are completely and totally ignored in the present economic models of ego, greed, power and growth at all costs? Where to “hell on earth” are these “experts” in their tiny reality box taking us? Blind to the absolutely insane, obscene worldwide wealth distribution and stagnant energy base?

And how can such an obvious deficit as a stagnant energy base - the CAUSE of the collective outcomes worldwide - be completely missed?

Common sense today tells us advanced, evolutionary, energy concepts would also bestow us with glaringly obvious “wisdom” options (science based moral & survival fibers) alerting us to the “uses”, the “sustainable, prosperous collective outcomes”, towards which our creations shall be put.


 To date, big ideas and innovation inputs are giving us unsustainable outputs, a complete disconnect from the perceived reality we ‘think’ we are creating in the tiny isolated, ivory box of expertise. Profit, the bottom line, stands alone, the sole criteria for ‘truth’, ‘justice’, ‘righteousness’, ‘the Way’, with nary a consideration to the values required to sustain life itself.

The predicament of industrial civilization.   John Greer, 16 March 2014


 LOUIS HELBIG To understand the predicament of industrial civilization, it’s not enough to grasp the outward shape of the crisis of our time: the looting of a finite planet’s stock of resources, the destabilization of the global climate, the breathtaking cluelessness with which politicians, pundits, and ordinary citizens alike insist that the only way we can get out of this mess involves doing even more of the same things that got us into it in the first place, and the rest of it. Follow the roots of our predicament down into the soil that feeds them, and you’ll find yourself in a murky realm of unspoken narratives and unacknowledged desires—the “mind-forg’d manacles,” as Blake called them, that keep most of us shackled in place as the great rumbling vehicle of global industrial society accelerates down the slope of its decline and fall.
