The greatest transformation in human history is currently unfolding. An elegant metaphor to represent this is the metamorphosis of a butterfly. When a caterpillar reaches a certain point in it’s own evolution, it savagely consumes everything in sight, eating hundreds of times it’s own weight. This catalyses the emergence of new cells in the caterpillar’s body which are called imaginal cells.

At first these cells are attacked by the immune system, but as more and more of them emerge and communicate with each other, they coalesce into a cooperative network and become the genetic directors of the future of the caterpillar. At this point all other cells dissolve into a nutritive soup that feeds and nourishes the emerging body of the butterfly. We are these new cells on the planet coming together right now to build a butterfly for the future of humanity and the world.
