….total reliance on dispassionate analytical rationalism is a certain path to the wrong answer…..the real pursuit of learning is to discover the wholeness/unity of life (Senge et al, 2004).

The future is unknown and unknowable, and we can no longer depend on historic ways of making sense to find our way forward.
