Food for Thought: The stories we tell ourselves

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be very careful what we pretend to be.”

Kurt Vonnegut

The stories we tell ourselves in our culture, take movies like WALL-E and The 100 for example, tell us that that in order for us to live in equilibrium with our environment, we must first go through a total apocalypse and mass extinction.

The stories that we tell about ourselves and our place in the world are the raw materials from which we build our existence. Isn’t it time that we start telling ourselves different stories?
