It's the reason "living out your life" seems about the worst thing you can do.

No excuses will suffice to rationalize staying in one place. No complaints will make you feel better. No "ultimate" space or time is good enough, as it is, to convince you that you should just play out the string inside it.

Right now, we are witnessing tech giants -- Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter -- hiding and de-listing news they deem "fake." On one level, this is an obvious attempt to control political content. But on a much deeper level, this is an effort to shore up THEIR REALITY. They want to consolidate their Army of believers and expand its ranks. Outsiders and their ideas and analyses are a threat.

Outsiders, heaven forbid, might decide to launch other creative realities that bleed into the consensus and dissolve it.

The independent and free individual mind has its own immune system. It responds when it detects the intrusion of collectivist concoctions.

"Alert! Fake collective reality is showing up. Take action. Resist. Reject."

Yes, but then?

The individual then has the power to invent his own future, according to his own vision. This is where the journey really gets interesting.

This is where new space and new time emerge, and the space of consensus shrinks and withers.

This is where the Army of Reality has no answer.

In my private consulting practice, I've worked with a number of clients, each of whom has his own invention of reality -- a project and an enterprise that spills over the conventional boundaries.

Each enterprise is quite different. Each approach is quite different.

What's similar is the available energy for the work.

Where does that energy come from?

It comes from the individual himself.

When imagination and the creative impulse are unleashed, energy appears in large quantities. New and fresh energy.
