  A NEW PHASE in the evolution of human civilization is on the horizon.

  With deepening states of crisis bringing unrest to all parts of the world,

  there is a growing need for change in our ways of thinking and acting.

  We now have the choice of either spiraling into deepening peril, or

  breaking through to a world of dignity and wellbeing for all.

  Throughout its history, humanity has been guided primarily by a material

  consciousness. Fearing scarcity, we have continued to pursue material

  gain beyond necessity, taking from others and depleting the Earth’s

  natural resources. If our aspirations continue to focus only on what is

  material and finite, our world will face inevitable destruction. 

  What is our true nature? 

  In order to make more enlightened choices and change the course

  of our history, we need to return to the basic question concerning

  human life. Each and every one of us must ask, “What is our true

  nature?” and seek a meaningful and responsible answer.

  As Steven Brant has so succinctly proposed in his HUFFPOST contribution

      "The thinkingscienceofdiscontinuous change

        (brilliantly presented by Russ Ackoff in his TEDTalk-like presentation)

        is still critically important ...



        But I believe now that people will never be comfortable using such

        thinking tools if they still live in a world dominated by fear. FEAR

        leads the masses to follow so-called  “strong manleaders

        (as Trump claims to be). LOVE leads us to be open to exploring

        places we’ve never been before.... sometimes partnered with

        people we’ve never partnered with before.

Never forgetting that it was Vitruvius - a [B]efore [C]hrist Roman and absolutely practically

experienced engineer and architect, who set the conundrum of how to SQUARE the proportion

of man with the decahedron CIRCLE and it took 500 years for Leonardo da Vinci to come up with

the solution. A SOLUTION that has never been bettered.
