New year, new op­por­tu­ni­ties – wel­come to 2018. We’re al­ready a month into it and what a hec­tic month it has been, with heat, hu­mid­ity, storms and floods. I read that 2018 will be a year in which peo­ple will be­come more aware of im­bal­ances of power and seek to ad­just them. This uber-aware­ness is be­cause of a shift in the Uni­verse that be­gan in 2015. Ap­par­ently, no­body knows the cause of the shift – pos­si­bly the ac­cel­er­a­tion of the Earth’s ro­ta­tion, maybe the re­cent prox­im­ity of heav­enly bod­ies – but it is a shift. Creative peo­ple are said to be the ones who will most sense this – that’s all you en­gi­neers, de­sign­ers, in­ven­tors, man­u­fac­tur­ers – all you mak­ers and cre­ators. There will be grow­ing pains, say the seers, but in gen­eral the world is head­ing in a bet­ter di­rec­tion. How­ever, we also need to be open to things be­cause, they say, our best pos­si­ble re­al­ity might be some­thing we can’t imag­ine. So buckle up – it could be a wild, al­beit sat­is­fy­ing, ride.
