Has the time come to move beyond our obsession with measurement? Charles Eisenstein, author of several books on human culture and identity, compares science to religion, and makes the case for moving beyond the belief that only the measurable is real. “Existing techniques,” he says, “are insufficient to the task before us.” Everything that really matters to people is left out of the numbers. When we give up the find-the-enemy approach to problem-solving we discover that the problem involves ourselves too - and that we don’t know what to do any more. When we admit to not knowing, things become possible. Let’s embrace the uncertainty of mystery and paradox, and admit it’s OK not to know.

"There's really no research that supports that point of view,"
Grief and loss touch us all, arriving at our door in many ways.
