We have come to the bridge.

The two primary options, more resources and better efficiency were available. They in turn were subject to competitive forces in the eco-system. Subjects were tuned by their nature to convenient repetition of primitive advocacy. The machinery to deliver it had evolved over hundreds of years and recently accelerated in both cost-effectiveness and reach.

Old school was to use large quantities of the universal means of exchange to purchase influence. Effective for many decades, this management technique was highly refined and able to dominate its competition. Times were changing, though.

The new school could be described as the confluence of low cost access to the triune brain population and a better awareness. Mass consumption of the accepted teaching was at variance with common sense in the new light.

Some were deeply vested in old school. A plutocracy of perception had enjoyed a long run, largely because there was a surplus of wealth. Wealth as capacity to exercise free-will has been shown to reach a happiness plateau. Beyond reaching this level the returns just don't seem to justify the increasing expense.

Past the happiness threshold, an inordinate influence has a variety of detrimental effects. Among them is the addictive nature of feeding the nearly limitless capacity of the human ego. Another is the necessity to detach from happiness inducing relationships - for safety, to protect denial, to indulge oneself to escape etc.

So the larger obstacle at this stage was not that some revolutionary paradigm need be adopted. No, it was our old 'friend' the uglier side of the ego and its many manifestations. This, of course, has been well known for a very long time indeed. What is new, thanks to the project, is the ability to codify the relevant patterns and synthesize new procedures for predicting optimal trigger points.

They knew for several weeks now that the two consuming tasks of late were connected. Now it was becoming apparent why. A heretofore hidden aspect of the medium to support the anthropologic fields was becoming explicit revealing a whole new set of salient relationships. It was not an accident that it seemed as if someone or some group wanted to impede the rapid discovery they had been experiencing.
