More and more humans follow the perilous journey of inner transformation and awakening. They want to build a society that embodies the consciousness that animates them, hence they invest themselves in pioneering projects like news cities, new enterprises, new collectives. New vessels get rigged to reach the shores of the next humanity. We already know a certain number of things about this new world. Some have reached the shores a long time ago and have lived there. They brought their witnessing and their experience, they made maps. However, no society at large has yet invested this almost virgin world, and no civilization has yet flourished. The big migration awaits us, it has already begun. Aurovillians have placed all their forces in it.
Just like the early aviators who, after their first empirical flights, needed a precise science –aeronautics–, todayshumanity pioneers need a new science,the one of social engineering. Collective intelligence has this role, it offers tools, methodologies, a language, and the capacity to ask questions that open for navigation.
