Profound Distortion — Sam Daley
Thanks to Meg Wheatley for forwarding this, an 18-minute Ted Talk by Sam Daley. He is a musician that at a young age awakened to broader purpose in the world. For him, ending global poverty. He speaks some of purpose and pitfalls in this journey.
The reference to “profound distortion” is one that grabs me. He shares about “standing by as millions starve locally while we’ve developed technology to aim a missile over the polar ice cap and strike within 100 feet of a target.” Rather than referencing this as innovation, he references the “profound distortion” of the purpose of human beings on the planet.
Glad to have listened / watched this today. It awakens me further in this day. And strengthens a similar message that showed up in a dream for me last night.
