Tom Atlee provides a service to society and to me individually that is of inestimable worth. He sorts through so many important articles, ideas, and groups, and generously offers them to us.

We serve the same values and purpose--to do all we can to help create a just, humane, intelligent society where people enjoy working together and bring out the best in each other.

Tom Atlee's staggering compilation of evidence for co-intelligence is one of the best signs I see that our human species is at last evolving toward co-creating cooperative maturity as all surviving species must sooner or later. It gives me both hope and resources for my own continuing work on this theme.

To be a true force for inspired change in the world, three things are necessary: 1. A deep understanding of the depth, breadth, and complexity of the human condition; 2. Practical suggestions for how to improve the human condition; 3. A dogged commitment to put your vision and knowledge into action. Tom Atlee is one of those rare beings who possesses all three attributes. I count it a great honor to know Tom, a great blessing to be able to partake of his wisdom, and a true gift to be able to share Tom's thoughtful, often soul-stirring insights with others who are seeking to make our world a better place.
