Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The flip answer:  Well, and IS our current conceptual scaffolding meeting these challenges?  

Clearly it is not.  

Indeed it is the mind that we ALREADY HAVE that has led us into our troubles.  So we need to alter or augment that mind in some way that will work.  

This comes even before worrying about how we might communicate and implement such mind.  

That is: I am seeking to cast a wider net.  

There are two places I know to look:  Peoples who already are (or were) sustainable; and the unregarded places our own studies point to.  The latter may seem esoteric, but considering they demand a new mental structure (and we know we need one) they might (by luck) suggest the things we actually need.  (Reality is your friend.)  

There may be other places to look.  

The Fates are kind.
