I think this summary is spot on. Please share any references that would be of interest on this topic.



Hi George,

Yes the inescapable is here. I am surrounding myself with sapient 18 - 25 year olds in a province that recently endured collapse conditions here in New Zealand. i hope that your hope for sapience - one i share - having a continuing place in this neck of the universe can continue a little while although it seems likely that extinction is a distinct possibility my will to survive will not wither until the very end.


A good piece, thanks for sharing your wisdom!
