A model for approaching design, rooted to Dharma
“We are approaching the power of gods, without the wisdom of gods.”
“How are we collectively creating a world that none of us wants, individually?”
Daniel Christian Wahl
Never before in the history of humanity has there been such an urgent need of 'awareness of intent.’ No longer can we let our world be created by what The Conscilience Project calls values-agnostic nihilistic design. This is made urgent by the fact that we now exist, near constantly, within the design of someone else. From the social media platforms where we gather with friends, the black mirrors of silicon and lithium on our person at all times, to the policies, laws and mandates that determine not only our present but our futures as well- everything is the design, or intent, of another affecting salience upon us.
The problem statement we thus face is two-fold.
