The Performance Movement: The Obvious and Outrageous Way Out of the Epistemological Fly Bottle.
All along, we have been betting our future on the human capacity to know things, to make sense of the world. It sounds like the most innocent of truisms. But this all-pervasive cognitive bias has brought our species dangerously close to "developmental paralysis”. For decades now we have been talking about sustainability and yet we seem to make little progress in putting this vision into practice. We seem like flies buzzing inside a bottle, unable to find our way out. There's a feeling that we may not be able to find a way forward, into a truly thriving Anthropocene, unless we are able to learn ourselves out of the epistemological traps bound up with our Platonic heritage.
