Let's start with a story about "Life and the World." Big topic. But don't worry. We'll keep it short and simple.

We do not live in the world, one world the same for all. Each of us lives in a unique world, an inner and outer world that each constitutes as we form our capacities and pursue our intentions. The same-for-all world presents some peculiar problems. It's actually very difficult to find, to touch, or to run and jump in. It's an abstract world, one we construct. Over countless generations, all around that huge abstract world, humans have learned

Let's start with our own lifeworld, that of persons in diverse 21st century circumstances possibly channeling substantial effort through A Place to Study. We are constructing it to help ourselves and others who want to form themselves and learn liberally in the digital commons. We're seeking to do that pretty simply by facilitating their assembling and studying lots of cultural resources and inviting them to reflect with each other about how that furthers their purposes.

Nothing constrains us to do all that and external incentives are not motivating us to do so. We have questions to ask.

    Given the press of circumstances, where and when can we actuate through A Place to Study the requisite energies to realize our intentions?
