They must find it difficult…
Those who have taken authority as the truth,
Rather than truth as the authority.
Symbols are oracular forms — mysterious patterns creating vortices in the substances of the invisible world.

World Needs New —
The world should be better. There are huge opportunities to make new things. To rethink energy, transport, healthcare, government. We think there's not enough around that's new. And business growth, particularly in hard times, means doing new things. The best way out of a recession is to stimulate new demand.
New Needs Brand —
Innovation is unpredictable, often wasteful, full of dead ends. But there's a good way to inspire it, focus it, and make it do-able. Start with your brand. Start with what you stand for, and what you're specially good at. This is brand-led innovation. It's how the greatest innovators instinctively do it. Brand inspires new, and new delivers brand.

Every educator today is faced with the task of preparing young people to work together in building a society based on an honest exchange of labor. Such an aim, however, can be accomplished only in collaboration with the world of practical activity. Neither educators whose minds are turned inwards nor practitioners who exploit for their own private ends the resources and power provided by research for the general good can form a basis on which an authentic culture appropriate to our age can grow. Collaboration between educators and practitioners is thus something that goes to the roots of our existence.
If you hit a wrong note, it’s the next note that you play that makes it good or bad.
Moulding clay into a vessel,
we find the utility in its hollowness;
Cutting doors and windows for a house,
we find the utility in its empty space.
Therefore the being of things is profitable,
the non-being of things is serviceable.
