For the duration of this transit, a slow and steady process of change can occur without the usual backlash or rebellion. This means progress without disruption, moving ahead toward practical but humanitarian goals and the rediscovery of old ideas and conventions that now have new and different applications. At this time, we are able to control the pace of change.
We, and more importantly, the powers that be, are able to integrate the old and the new like never before, to take whats valuable from previous systems and discard the rest. In essence, we can keep the baby but throw out the bath water. All sorts of new, practical uses for established technologies can be found. Ideas that were positively revolutionary just a few years ago now become the status quo. We manage to bring order to chaos, to accelerate reform, to bring equal opportunities to all. We recognize that change is productive, and we embrace it with little fanfare and a realistic vision of the future. If only it were always so easy and smooth.
