    The concept of ‘a new soicety’, in an encouragement to ‘pioneer a new soicety’ requires some reflection. Does this imply that the ‘new soicety’ will be constituted by a collection of people that behave in a new and more ‘desirable’ way? As you point out, if the pioneering group sees themselves “as separate from (and hostile to) their neighbors”, then our actions in ‘pioneering a new soicety’ will not be ‘creating a world that works for all.’What invites reflection here is what we mean by the word ‘creating’.Prior to the arrival in Turtle Island of the colonizing peoples of Europe, there already existed a thriving living-space/habitat of great fertility. And prior to the arrival of man within the thin but fertile skin that is the Earth’s biosphere, there existed a thriving living-space/habitat of great fertility. The newcomers to the biosphere let their behaviours be orchestrated by the diurnal and seasonal cycles of light and warmth and climate of the space in which they were situated/included, they let their individual and collective movements be organized by the tides and the river-flows and their diets shaped by the smorgasbord of edible selections that their particular situation within the living space served up for them.To speak of ‘man creating a new soicety’ passes over the fact that man is the product of evolution in which outside-inward habitat-influence predominates over the inside-outward asserting influence of the inhabitants (Nietzsche). When the biosphere invited in the material form called ‘man’, it invited him in, in the same manner that the flow of freeway traffic accommodates the influx of individuals from the onramps; i.e. the accommodating dynamic of the collective predominates over the assertive actions of new entrants. We who are included in the flow implicitly acknowledge that sustaining harmonious flow derives more from ‘what we do not do’ (the moves we do not make) as ‘what we do’ (the moves that we make).Intellectually we may plan to go from Aix to Ghent and linguistically, we may speak of going from Aix to Ghent; i.e. we may think and talk in terms of our dynamics as if they are constituted by internally-sourced, deliberately asserting actions; i.e. as if the ‘inside-outward assertive influence predominates over the outside-inward orchestrating influence, but that is never the ‘real’ case in the natural world of physical phenomena, it is Fiktion (Nietzsche) or ‘schaumkommen [appearances]’ (Schrf6dinger) or ‘maya [illusion]’ (Vedics).This ‘new world that works for all’ that we are talking about can therefore be seen, not as something ‘we create’ [to think thus is to impute God-like creationist powers to ourselves], but as something that can re-establish itself when/as we let go of our notion [illusion] that our inside-outward asserting inhabitant-actions predominate over the outside-inward orchestrating influence of the habitat-dynamic. This view and practice requires the humility of acknowledging that we [the people] ‘belong to the land’ [to the spatial-plenum that is inclusive of people and all things] along with a reciprocal ‘stepping down’ from the egoism of the predominating Western culture, wherein we insist that ‘the land belongs to us’.
