Catalysis is a change in progress, but unlike regular change, something is usually added to the mix to make it virtually impossible to stop. It’s more profound than alteration and induces transformation in something that appeared stable before the catalyst was introduced, like our global economy for example.People are arguably the most volatile catalysts because we all want a different tomorrow than the rest. That’s mainly because most of us have some serious issues with the Status Quo of powerful and privileged protectorates making obscene profits from laundering virtual money, and then making us pay cash for the privilege of its mandatory use.Our governments coerce us into accepting their digital money in exchange for real currency to keep the whole circus alive, but we seem to be powerless to change it. To make the change that we want, we need the catalyst of something bigger to help us, but praying doesn’t seem appropriate in a world that we are determined to make godless.Lately, we count amongst us those who are born or reborn with the curse or the blessing of a more complete insight. Unlike us, these latest children havent been totally pre-conditioned by what is purely physical. They can see the bigger possibilities of a much wider reality, even if they dont understand it all at first and even if we call them ‘afflicted’.Just as evolution nudged us out of our primeval birthplace in warm shallow seas to then conquer the land, our latest generation claims to journey out, or is that in, to where all possibilities exist.So while we hope, pray and then wait for deliverance from our oppressive demons, these younger versions of us want to jump to the head of the queue and grab their own vision of the future. All they need to do then, is to somehow get it back into this reality, where it will happen for them whether we like it or not.This is really not a good time for an extra terrestrial contact, but we are either all alone in the vastness of the universe, like a microscopic colony on a single grain of sand on the smallest island of an otherwise totally sterile world, or we are not, and if there are others out there, they probably wont wait for an invitation.We like to assume that any of those who live out there would be very unlike us, but in reality they would have to be like us also. They would also have needed hope to succeed. Maybe they also had to pray for their own version of tomorrow. It wouldnt be stretching our imaginations too far to think such might also have , and if ours understand the concept of Carpe Diem to make things happen for them here, then why not theirs out there.Closer to home it could be that we’ve already tipped the scales against ourselves and invited catalysis in. Its not just the global warming issue, at least, not only that. Theres also the endemic global greed and corruption that now reaches into every aspect of our lives. Pathogens don’t need to be physical to be lethal.So many ingredients for catalysis are already in play that it will take something really small to fully whip up our catalytic cocktail. Just one more catalyst will make that alternate future arrive at any moment. It could be a stubborn or repetitive recession, another regional financial blip or maybe a localised but virulent pestilence, like another contagious SARS outbreak.We’ve been living so close to the edge for so long that we’re blasé about some distant rendezvous with Destiny, so lets put it in relative terms. When we talk about the future arriving tomorrow, think of it like a child counting down to Christmas, School Recess or a long anticipated Birthday Party, and suddenly there really is just one sleep left.Thats when everything changes for everybody forever, and maybe a future of any kind would be worth having then. Of course, everybody means, everyone … every single one of us … from wherever we may have come.
