Personal Growth in a World of Chaos

Framing our writings is the premise that Western Civilization, as traditionally understood, is over. We see this transition as morally neutral. Something else is emerging in its place. We want to help people figure out what that something else should be how they fit into that shift is.

Find out more about the cultural phase we call the “Byzantine Transition,”

We’re asking three main questions:

  1. What from our past is worth keeping?
  2. What should we throw away?
  3. What should we do next?

Lunacy Now:

  • Delights in the benefits of modernity, but wants to ameliorate the ways it can be alienating, clinical and utilitarian.
  • Anticipates the coming wave which will transform everything (climate change, robotics, AI etc) and wants to explore novel solutions for how people might respond.
  • Embraces the promise of the future, without discarding the cherished heritage of our past.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.

— Rumi
