welcome to the shadow government of the world!

i am writing this to myself and everyone
for we are all members of our collective self
the governing processes of each of us
the interaction of what was and what can be
in the art and the science of collective navigation
beyond our mechanical inheritance
outside the limits of nationality and job
accepting the responsibilities of being numerous
(see the estimated number of us)
we are the shadow goverment
and we can become the real one
just as soon as all of us choose!


not of a representative parliament
but the public thoughts and actions of everyone
beginning here and now
in these shadows of global self-government
of ourselves by ourselves

waiting, waiting in the shadows
for creative democracy to come alive
