This used to be on the masthead of my blog:
"Upon this gifted age, in its dark hour,
Rains from the sky a meteoric shower
Of facts...they lie unquestioned, uncombined.
Wisdom enough to leech us of our ill
Is daily spun, but there exists no loom
To weave it into fabric..."
Edna St. Vincent Millay
However, the loom needs to be something more dimensional in scope than my operation, and Reality Sandwich, which I think of as the Huffington Post of edgier material, has been the closest we've had to doing the job. Now, there is a campaign on Kickstarter to make Reality Sandwich a more effective instrument for us to meet and for promoting the ideas that you, my list members, know and love.
I am asking everyone who reads this to please come up with a donation -- even a small one. Small amounts can add up to significant funding. I've had the great pleasure of hosting two webinar series for Evolver Intensives, an offshoot of Reality Sandwich, that I think were sensational. However, there weren't the funds to properly deliver them as archives that could be seen by many more people than the happy participants who tuned into the live events. The chat rooms were gushing, and you would gush, too, if you saw what we did. (If you can navigate getting a WebEx player, that this will tell you how to acquire, for $40 the archive of DOORWAYS TO ANOTHER REALITY will be yours. My money back guarantee if you don't find it fascinating. )
In fact, I was so jazzed by DOORWAYS TO ANOTHER REALITY that I used material I learned from my guests as the basis for the TEDx event, Brother, Can You Spare a Paradigm?, that I went on to produce. And Reality Sandwich will become the home for a continuation of the dialogue that protests about TED's reactionary policies gave rise to. The eloquent people who commented on what TED was repressing (my event was in good company with Graham Hancock, Rupert Sheldrake, and Deepak Chopra) wanted a vehicle to deal with parallel repressions in the world at large. Reality Sandwich is that vehicle.
PLEASE, if everyone who reads this coughs up a measly $25 -- and they will give you more in value than the money you give them -- the Kickstarter campaign for Reality Sandwich to greatly expand its functions and its power will meet its goals. And I will refund your money if you find that Reality Sandwich isn't the go-to place I've said it will be for us to deal with what we hold dear.
