about Turning Signs

Our global civilization is rapidly changing, facing crises in energy, ecology, economy and equity. But what are we turning into? As of October 2019, the main focus of this blog is the ongoing transition and the various complex systems (including ourselves) involved in this transformation. Many of the posts since 2015 are about how these systems work and affect the lives of all Earthlings, human and otherwise. Readers are invited to join the conversation by posting comments, or by joining virtual real-time gatherings hosted using a licensed Zoom account (email me about that).
