What ails thee?

We're in a situation now that's very much like the development of a butterfly in a chrysalis. The caterpillar's immune system is still trying to protect itself as a caterpillar---and to me, that's what our insistence on clinging to the oil age is all about. From a biological perspective, it's the job of the old system to protect itself as long as possible. But it's equally the job of the new system to rally its forces until it can overcome the old immune system and build the new.
---Elisabet Sahtouris, The wisdom of living systems
