History Is Now…

…Everything we think we know, history, politics, science, culture, knowledge itself and how we utilise it, is open to change and adaptation. Each one of us has the ability to produce, cultivate and enable changes on both the intimate level… as well as the seemingly external levels… We are the Change Makers. We are the game players.

Winter Solstice
