Today’s technology allows us to see and know so much more. But it also allows us to collaborate in amazing new ways via instant, massive communication. This link is to a fascinating TED talk by artist Aaron Koblin. His work features the collaboration of thousands of people combined in amazing online projects made possible by today’s radically connected technology.
This is a short post, specifically asking you to contemplate the potential of humanity to collaborate for “the good.”
Koblin’s work demonstrates the amazing beauty of a somewhat chaotic collaboration. Nonetheless, they are all beautiful!
If we think about collaboration within the Spirit, among all members of the Body of Humanity, what beauty is possible there? How pleasing it is to the Creator.
No wonder God wanted to share the joy of Being with us! The return is truly limitless — from the sound of a trained and talented chorus to the abstract beauty of Koblin’s relatively unstructured collaborations.
What can “be” in the truly radically connected, spiritual communion of the Body of Humanity, the Humanity of all times and all places?
The better question really is, what does happen — now?
