Norah Vawter inspires a variation on the letter:
To Whom it May Concern,
By the time you read this, a temporal tsunami of institutionally triggered inflection points will have conflated the “natural” with “man made” in the planetary tipping points known as “climate change”. We are facing consequences of an epoch, a millennium, an ‘era’ of industrialization of humans misleadingly termed “evolution” in an insensate Cartesian feedback loop entitled ‘homo sapiens sapiens’. The latter is actually a reality, but full blossoming is being held in abeyance by “consumer” enslavement. Make special note: the cycles dependent on ‘consumer’ require an enforced designation that is wholly dependent on denial of ‘sapiens’, much less the sapiens sapiens - of self awareness.
We have access to a stunningly liberating tool box: the firm ware of an archaic revival
“Time”, to which we have been, and are being, systematically acculturated, induces highly manipulable and intentionally arbitrary compliance to specified targets by obscure powers of self interest: it is an abstract cage. It has been rendered an instrument of distortion, exclusion, and incapcitation. One of your tasks, beloved, is to find out about how ‘time’ has been regarded, calibrated and utilized by other cultures; to be aware that originally, calibrations linked us to the movement of the solar system and in some cases to galactic patterns, forms of knowledge of integration essential to everyday human existence on the planet.
There are peoples all over the world who are waiting to mesh their knowledge with other forms of knowledge, to celebrate the challenge and our precious natural resources.
Some tool boxes for ways of learning and knowing to explore with friends:
The wisdom perspectives of Micronesia Journey of the Hokulea and Wayfinders of Polynesia because the “the ocean unites everyone” - even those who have never seen the ocean. Ancient wisdom and modern science is our top priority.

The access to this toolbox is a self-regenerating vitamin for the mind, body and imagination. These are strengthening means and methodologies that foster interactive diversity that nurtures balance, sustainability and creativity.
