Design for Posterity

We borrow this planet and everything that is in it from the future. We own nothing. We owe everything. Our debt is repaid through the care exhibited by thoughtful use and design. Perpetuating flawed unsustainable systems based on limited knowledge or short-sighted perspectives is design for the past which simply enshrines ignorance and errors.

Constant change to reflect the highest levels of awareness that can lead to a more sustainable world is the path toward being respected by the future and ensuring that there will be a future to be respected by.
