Thrive in the Future

The Earth is now entering a new geological phase that some call the Anthropocene. This is the age when human impact is as great as any previous geological force.

The Anthropocene differs from all other eras in that a single species (humans) has the power to consciously change the course of evolution.

"If you look at the science that describes what is happening earth today and aren't pessimistic, you don't have the correct data. If you look at the people [who are acting to change things] and are not optimistic, you haven't got a heart," writes Paul Hawken in his book Blessed Unrest. Ultimately, Hawken is optimistic that humans are coming together to heal the Earth.

If humanity does not become aware of our powers, then our fate is no better than the dinosaurs and the 99% of all other creatures who have gone extinct. What may set us apart is if enough people become aware of of our past and aware of our power to change the future. When this happens, we will have arrived at a new stage in evolution.

Fortunately, many people are becoming aware. This process began thousands of years ago during the Axial Age when people around the world awoke to the idea of the Golden Rule and the "Law of reciprocity" and it's various forms. This awakening process continued with the birth and teachings of many spiritual leaders. The process has been speeding up with the emergence of science and the thousands of people who seek truth that is beyond normal perception. Just as distant stars and tiny microbes are beyond our normal perception, so too is deep time and vast space beyond our normal perception. This expanded awareness is increased by the scientific method and various instruments, such as telescopes and microscopes. Communication technologies allow the transmission of these findings to the entire world.

The goal this web site is to help you understand the forces of how we came to be, so that you, and the greater community may align with these forces to thrive in the future.
