“We are now living in a dual reality. While we live in the twenty-first century, we seem to hold (most people very strongly) to the “way things are” as what is real. Much of our daily lives have been habituated to this twentieth century reality. We simply accept what we have known most of our lives as reality. Acceptance of something is, to some degree, acquiescence to it.”

The Earth seemed to be unlimited in its space, resources and ability to absorb whatever humanity did. No longer.”

– David Houle from “Entering the Shift Age” (2013)
