The Meeting II has been scheduled in advance. We know where it will take place, at what time, and who’s going to be there. It’s the stimulus for a chemical reaction, a point of change with limited time.
Common. Unknown. New. Reinventing old languages that everyone understands.
The direction-towards started as soon as the idea-seed was planted. It’s filled with intentions, expectations, ideas and wonder. It’s natural.
