Do you have a wild dream and hope in the Holochain world? Is there a specific dream or image that inspires you and helps you get out of bed in the morning?
For me it relates to the idea around ‘right relationship’ from Buddhism.

The current political economy is based on a false idea of material abundance. We call it pseudo-abundance. It is based on a commitment to permanent growth, the infinite accumulation of capital and debt-driven dynamics through compound interest. This is unsustainable, of course, because infinite growth is logically and physically impossible in any physically constrained, finite system.
The current political economy is based on a false idea of “immaterial scarcity.” It believes that an exaggerated set of intellectual property monopolies—for copyrights, trademarks and patents—should restrain the sharing of scientific, social and economic innovations. Hence the system discourages human cooperation, excludes many people from benefiting from innovation and slows the collective learning of humanity. In an age of grave global challenges, the political economy keeps many practical alternatives sequestered behind private firewalls or unfunded if they cannot generate adequate profits. 14
These structural contradictions have always made for reduced efficiency and irrationality. But in recent decades they have resulted in increasingly chronic crisis tendencies, which amount to a terminal crisis of capitalism as a system.”

So my dream is continuing to dare to dream and imagine a world where humans have a non-violent and harmonious relationship with the Great Mother, where we’ve moved to a closed loop material reality, where all outputs are resources, and nothing is wasted, everything is modular, and the scarcity of our Copyright and IP systems are inverted into Copyleft instead: full-on Commons-based peer production.
If this game brings in a few replies I might also do another one about our biggest nightmares, so stay tuned!
