We all experience how the pace of change is speeding up, but seldom do we step back to look at where this acceleration is taking us. In the coming decades, the pace of life will be much faster than it is today leading to technological advances that may be as unimaginable to us today as the current Internet was thirty years ago.
However, we need to consider another consequence of accelerating change: the stress it creates. Whether it be our own biological system, our social, economic, and political systems, or the planetary ecosystem, the stress of ever-increasing change will eventually lead to breakdown—with potentially disastrous consequences, as the impending climate catastrophe reveals.
In the future, we will see technology beyond our dreams, in a world falling apart at the seams. And no-one is to blame. It’s the natural consequence of innovation breeding innovation, leading to an exponential explosion of growth.
So how do we cope with an increasingly unpredictable world? How can we prepare ourselves as the winds of change whip up into a storm of change? And what is the new story of humankind to which this leads?
