Thank you schmadrian, WRCU2 and all for your kind comments! And it was my pleasure meeting up with you too, WRCU2!

Did anyone have the opportunity to watch the video on the INTACH home web page referred to in my earlier post? – It is titled: Play Intach Film, and is at the bottom of the page.

This is a must see to understand how phenomenal progress can be achieved in heritage conservation, at the grassroots level – in one of the most complex cultural and economic environments.

What comes through in this video is what schmadrian so well points out above: "The more 'human' our interaction is, the more 'humane' our habits become."

There is indeed a direct line – as schmadrian sees: "between creating a culture of respect for our architectural heritage, our living spaces, and the notion of community itself."

Our biggest challenge in Hamilton, is creating the 'conditions' (environment) for socially relevant developments to occur pervasively.

Our sciences tell us that among the most powerful human instincts are: parental care and social instincts.

We all are already hardwired for it. We just have to figure out a way to create the right conditions for Morphogenesis.

Maybe by replacing confrontation with inquiry and open discussions; and by making the unconditional acceptance of the other, the new cool thing to do – the 'conditions' (environment) needed for socially relevant developments to occur could just evolve naturally.
