Hey John - Really appreciate you getting us thinking about the larger meta-narratives that play out across everything. You have me thinking of what Joseph Campbell warned about the 2nd half of the 21st century: We are a modern culture adrift having lost our connection to a living mythos. In many ways, the social web and the infinite freedom of knowledge is instigating a renaissance of living mythos. It begins with the cultural meme and value that everybody is a storyteller. And we're each the narrator of our own life story; with the power to change and reinvent that story. From this place, there's an opportunity to rekindle a new cosmology from the ground up of who each of us is - in relationship to each other, and the world around us. In the end, that's what a meta-narrative is all about isn't it? In that the power of a story grows exponential as more and more people accept that story as collective truth. Of course, there's still many competing storylines to this global convergence and cultural mashup. Thanks for stewing the pot!
