What will it mean to live in an ExpONEntial society? Is ‘one’ a singular or a collective? Will we upload consciousness and merge with AI, or is The Singularity our uploading into a collective consciousness?

Nothing is certain beyond our own values and behaviours. Yet if we look to nature we realise we each play our part in an improvisatory whole.

Honey bees have an extraordinary social structure. Each bee has a defined function within the hive. A honey bee colony is a well-run organisation.

And the ocean is made up of immeasurable numbers of singularly powerless droplets. Together they create a powerful mass that covers over 70% of the planet.

The power of one can be dictatorial. Or it can be the collected unity of voices, steering the world to compassion and love.

Will we become a society of singular units, or a collective? Do we exist as individuals or as individuations of a collective whole?
