Hey there, I'm Sam

I'm interested in what the next chapter of our species looks like and how we can make it as good as it can be. This is starting to take two separate but inextricably connected forms.

The first is through thinking practically about how we can transcend the existing inter-national system and develop a new model that works for the planet and all who call it home. And, importantly, do so in a way that minimises minimise chaos and disorder. Think regenerative evolution instead of destructive revolution.

The second, in loose collaboration with others scattered across the internet, is beginning to identify, map out, and articulate the values, ideals, philosophies, perspectives, stories — in a sense, ways of seeing and being individually and collectively — that will animate and guide our emerging global society, providing moral foundations that are entirely consistent with the best science we have to date. In many ways it's the reconciliation of Science and Religion.

Now I know that sounds like a lot to unpack. More info to come. Follow me on Twitter for updates.
