The Age of Consciousness
At human works design we like to dream, to design dreams and turn them into reality. Our dream is to create happiness and joy for ourselves and around us with people who love, create, explore and make life worthwhile living.
A world free of addiction, pollution and systemic technological entanglement. We are living and working to make this happen every day. The task looks difficult when you look at the world today around us but we believe change starts from within oneself, with small actions in your own life, making more conscious decisions every day.
That’s why we both became vegan last summer as we did not want to support the killing of animals and the industrial food production any longer - one of the most polluting in the world. Since then our whole being became purer - as we don’t put any junk or unhealthy food any longer in our bodies. It’s amazing what simple changes can bring to your life! People think you loose energy becoming vegan but that is not true, it’s the opposite! Our energy levels are a lot higher and more balanced now.
Many athletes switch to a whole-food plant-based diet with better results. Watch James Cameron’s documentary ‘Game Changers’ showing the masculinity in vegan athletes portraying a new Era of Veganism, replacing corrupt authority with the truth.
The reality we live in needs a lot of conscious change and we are determined to make that change happen.
Huge corporations keep selling junk and sugary foods to our population in an addictive mindset, smartly stimulated by the industry who controls the advertising and the industrial food chain. We have created the perfect system to create, distribute and deliver all this with a click or a “Go” voice-command on a device to be delivered within minutes at our doorstep.
Today, more than one in two adults and nearly one in six children are overweight or obese in the OECD area. Half of all the food bought by families in the UK is now “ultra-processed”, made in a factory with industrial ingredients and additives invented by food technologists and bearing little resemblance to the fruit, vegetables, meat or fish used to cook a fresh meal at home.
Worse, we are advertising the same bad habits and products to our children. On average children view over 40,000 commercials a year, most of which are for candies, cereals, toys, and fast food restaurants (stats from 2004 btw!). Everybody with a bit of common sense knows it’s not the right way to continue. As all statistics globally are showing, these addictions will continue to rise. In the end, it’s a huge cost for all of us if our society is or stays unhealthy.
All these addictions, from fast food to app consumption create dopamine in our brains, the chemical part that is looking for fast and short-term rewards constantly. We need to move from an ‘instant gratification’ dopamine addictive society towards a more serotonin-driven society, our chemical reward towards lifelong-learning processes and happiness. In other words, the human potential at its highest level.
We will need to move out of the centuries old ego-driven, controlling and addictive behaviour, based on wrong assumptions and greed, towards a more complete and more humanistic one. We need to move towards a world of co-creation and collaboration instead of more competition, towards a decentralised, more feminine future.
Ask yourself which society do you want to live in or help to create? Which society do you want yourself and your children to live in? What kind of values are we inheriting? How can we contribute to bring positive change?
The future of our societies lies in the will for the people to continuously learn in a world where everything is in constant change.
“Progress of human civilisation in the area of defining human freedom is not made from the top down. No king, no parliament, no government ever extended to the people more rights than the people insisted upon.” - Terence McKenna
In this newsletter you can read about some of our current memes, including children first world design, the rise of the feminine energy era, personal transformation, future cities, platform capitalism, the unbearable lightness of artificial intelligence, the experience economy, sustainability, decentralisation, and last but not least, Albert Einstein on love.
With love and gratitude.
Canay and Rudy.
Enjoy the reading!
