Anything we can imagine and commit to as possible that is outside our conventional view of “reality”. An opening for observing the world. A powerful place to stand from which to see what’s missing. By definition, a possibility is not real. If it could be proven, it wouldn’t be a possibility. It would be an example and, therefore, an option.

Possibilities are created, and always reveal our relationship to a future. The future is always occurring in the context of either a prediction (an extrapolation of the past) or possibility, which transcends historical limits and constraints and can be an opening for unprecedented action.

Peoples’ inherent birthright is possibility, or freedom. Not only freedom from physical, political and social constraints, but freedom from the domination of yesterday’s ideas. Being free includes intellectual freedom, freedom to act as well as anything else.
