Evolution as a Team Sport

Speaking of Arthur Magazine, here’s Douglas Rushkoff’s first first column for them. Thanks to NWD for the reminder.

There’s a disturbing fundamentalism brewing in the counterculture these days – an aching towards apocalypse as dangerous as that of our counterparts in the reddest of states, and understood just as literally. We are to await the apex of novelty, that singularity when consciousness rises from the chrysalis of matter into a new state, beyond time and maybe even energy. And, of course, only those of us with proper spiritual or psychedelic credentials will be prepared for this inevitability, and make it through the bottleneck at the end of linear history. The rest, well, they finally get their comeuppance.

Jason Louv on Ultra-Culture

Jason talks Generation Hex and ultraculture:

Ultimately you can see the Hex-Effect already happening?the release of the book will only intensify it. Key23.net is a good example of what I imagined the forms this movement would take initially, and an inspiration at that. The next step is to take this crazy dream into the physical. I believe the Internet really has become another control system?it’s up to us to use it, not the other way around. Because ultimately, if it’s not happening in the streets, than it’s not happening. And I have nothing but boundless faith that it’s happening. You can see it already. The goals of this emergent Ultraculture are simple?a way of living that is self-defined, not imposed; in which compassion is both the path and the destination; in which hopeful action conquers apocalyptic paralysis; and in which “reality” poses no obstruction.

And when it comes to “ultraculture” don’t forget Arthur Magazine.
