The Conversation

Making Sense of These Times


"It is extremely important to keep up a wide-ranging discussion about the events of September 11 and their aftermath. The worst thing that could happen is a shutdown of critical thinking and open exchange of views. Your website looks like an important effort to prevent such an outcome."
Michael Renner, co-author of Five Star Piece A New Marshall Plan

TheConversation.org had its start when 9/11 dictated that we were in a new world.

At this threshold moment for humanity, when we must choose wisely to avoid what could be our annihilation, this site is dedicated to tracking the emerging intelligence that we need for our very survival, and to conversation in which that intelligence can be forged.

Let those who see beyond the idea of force imposing world order, to where we look to heal the causes of despair, meet here.

Interesting extras

Michael Moore's mailing list is well worth joining. "At this moment in living history, Michael Moore is every bit (pun intended) as important as Thomas Paine and Paul Revere were to 'The First American Revolution'. But, he's too close to the action to understand the impact of his work," says pal, Critt Jarvis.

This is a sensational piece of writing to understand the world: Escaping the Matrix, Richard K. Moore. The matrix metaphor is a big help to sort out complex issues.

This site has been superceded by a new formatting, based on blog technology, which will allow more of a conversation than this format does. On the new site, the focus is more on looking for answers than on documenting problems.

Archives that are here are what was posted from 9/11/01 to mid December 2002. That includes :


Five Star Pieces that are the best of the best from the world press

Quotes that have been plucked out of those pieces and taken from other writings that aren't in that top category.

Soundbites that are pithy brief blurbs drawn from the Quotes.

Monthly Reports that used to be in this space (archived through November of 2002).

Various Conversations tracks.

Updates of newly entered material that have been sent out to listmembers since March of 2002 (also archived through November 2002).


Anyone wanting to dive in, those Updates would allow you to track our line of thought. Also, I especially recommend the Featured Conversations for the most original material on the site, where we are not just reporting on what is going on but doing some thinking about solutions in the problematic world in which we find ourselves.

Milk Hill 2001

There's nothing that gets me as excited as crop circles. They are the only hope on the horizon for humanity to shift consciousness, which could get us out of the mess we are in. I'm opening a track on my Crop Circle website for following events related to the circle phenomenon as they transpire:

Suzanne's Crop Circle Diary, 2002


Upon this gifted age, in its dark hour,
Rains from the sky a meteoric shower
Of facts...they lie unquestioned, uncombined.
Wisdom enough to leech us of our ill
Is daily spun, but there exists no loom
To weave it into fabric...

-Edna St. Vincent Millay-
