We are living in a time of tremendous, accelerating change. It seems impossible to
predict how our world will unfold. So many terrible prospects confront us; so many
awesome and wonderful ones, as well. Will we merge with our machines in a synthetic
immortality, or will we learn to master technology to liberate humanity from want? Will
we wipe out all life on earth, or become responsible stewards of the biosphere? Each of
us has a role to play in this amazing adventure. How do we understand what is
happening, then work together to bring about the most beautiful and harmonic result?
