After interviewing 5 people in my podcasts on where we go from here, I am intrigued by what will change and what will revert back. What's already changed irreversibly? Will we become extinct or become a new species? Chapter 2 of my book explores ideas from de Chardin, Sheldrake and the Mayan Calendar.

Clashing tipping points, competing hashtags, compounding issues, lack of transparency all cry for a new way to create how we live. Christopher continues dialog on defining our disruptive issues and then creating a global society based on different values and ways of being.
Waiting for the pandemic to subside gives us time to gestate a new normal, where ideas generated by small groups can gain momentum with the power of tipping points. Positive ideas can then become viral to create a better world. Small, collaborative groups with novel ideas have tipping-point power to shift our habitual patterns as we struggle to put our lives back together
Using resources at our disposal to boost immunity and energetic strength may have us taking another look at things we've taken for granted or overlooked. This takes us deep into our inner self for guidance.
Elisha Christopher synthesizes disparate ideas to help us create a New Normal without RE-creating the same problems. What you think is wrong, may be your latent genius. Diversity and uniqueness may be the key to our survival. Eli's personal story exemplifies how he turned his pathology into a new story, a new mythology, as a way-shower for us all.
