If hope and change are possible before we run out of time, they will be found at the center where the weight of evidence from all humanity transforms our lump of coal into a diamond which will then radiate light throughout humanity right to the margins. 

At the center we will see the democratic process has evolved because we do not have a common view and continuing to believe we can find it through democracy will only ensure our democratic self-destruction.

At the center we will see it seems we have a common purpose, to answer "Why am I?" and that all the different ways we try to give meaning to our lives simply prove they can't. We should then see if we empty "the void" of all the way we try to fill it, we will eventually have at least the same view of ourselves, "reaching out to the limits of our capacities, to others and to God; and perhaps we will be looking at the face of God.
