We navigate our lives through storylines. Our storylines shift all the time, but we can get into a groove that makes us think there is one “right” path – one goal – one truth. We forget that our brains are as limited in scope as our perception, with blind spots. And we tend to be unaware that humans are made of a very rare package of elements, and that the universe is vastly more of “something else” that scientists are having a hard time comprehending.
“Attainable We” was created to remind us how wrong humans tend to be, and to suggest a 7-part process in the aid of evolving individually, and as a society. There is no magic or transcendence or cult to the process. The seven stages are simple steps of understanding, not always taken in order. Admittedly, step three is hard for most of us to accept and live on a daily basis. (My introverted self tends to get hung up at stage six.)

Website in development
This website is very much a work-in-progress. As in life, the design and content are continuously evolving. The news stories posted on the Attainable We Facebook page eventually will become part of the interactive storytelling. Ultimately we will invite group conversation.
I’ve successfully created a community website elsewhere that now serves 14,000 visitors each month — building a more connected society will take all of us and our particular voices.
My name is Mikki Morrissette, and I enjoy creating multi-dimensional stories. You’ll find several entry points here that lead to perspectives ranging from how we tell and learn stories, to the fallibility of science and our brains, to reminders of what we used to think and how we’ve shifted since then. Some of what you find here will be offered in a book of essays about how to shift our societal conversations.
I believe that our propensity to make mistakes and even misremember our own storylines gives us hope – because we are continually evolving, rather than being rigidly locked in one place.
