Trains are a good thing.  
They gather up people and take them to places in a very efficient way.
Trains have opened up continents and developed countries.
There is nothing really wrong with trains…
    except they can only go where there is track.
If there is no track, the train does not go… it is not possible.

The evolution of humanity on this planet has developed its own track…
belief systems, religions, economies, political regimes, laws, codes, regulations…
all have become “tracks” to our future.
They have opened up continents and developed countries.

There is a problem…
a changing planet and a growing population have created the need to go to a place
that the tracks can’t deliver us to.

There is a new frontier now…
   evolution beyond the tracks.
