I’m writing to ask you to take a look at my friend Peter Kajtar’s Kickstarter campaign.
Peter is writing a book building on the work of David Bohm and J Krishnamurti, The Order of Thought.
I’ve cited his work many times here.
I consider what he is doing to be one of the most significant efforts going on anywhere today. The clarity he brings to Bohm & Krishnamurti’s work and the promise inherent in the wider connections he makes and the further insights he has made – is making – are unique and so valuable. Essential, if we are ever going to spread and deepen our understanding of the effects of incoherence on every part of our predicament and creatively address our situation.
Kickstarter is now just another swamped new media. Without direct introductions feeding attention to a particular project it will remain lost in the noise no matter how important and valuable it may be.
I’m reaching out to you. Asking you to reach out to your extended networks. We need to find that rare demographic, someone who can both see the value in what Peter is doing and make a cash contribution to assist in its completion.
Peter has a young family. He is moving to England from Germany early next month. He must find a way to support his family even if it means setting The Order of Thought aside for an indefinite period of time.
To my eye this would be a tragedy.
I consider this an epochal watershed cloaked in one individual’s domestic economic difficulties.
We are all struggling today, but not many are capable, or have made such wonderful and promising progress on such an important piece of work, as he has!
Please take a look for yourselves. Remember everything you see on his site and on his Kickstarter appeal was done by one person with limited means.
