The 11th Hour is real.
We are at a phase shift in history, the likes of which we have not seen since we moved from single-celled to multicellular organisms. We are in the midst of a level of change that is virtually beyond our imagination. This creates what Marc and Barbara call a “crisis of imagination.” We cannot heal the crisis of the 11th Hour until we can imagine it.
Imagination is not simply an act of fantasy. Imagination is an act of perception. A crisis of imagination is a crisis of perception. We live in a world in which we have no story equal to our power, no story equal to our technology, no story equal to our potency or purpose, no story equal to our global situation, no story equal to our Deepest Heart’s Desire.
But before we articulate the new narratives of identity, power, technology, community, and sexuality, we need to know ourselves and our world and perceive the unique nature of the existential challenges that we must engage in.
