The World Transformed 2, Part 1
Some of it is evolutionary, some of it is cultural, and a small portion of it is original to us as individuals. It is our way of thinking. Our thinking is always subject to scrutiny and inspection, but perhaps never more urgently than now. If profound change truly is upon us… …what assumptions must we avoid? …what new ideas must we be ready to embrace? …what cherished “truths” must we be prepared to put away once and for all? Our panel will explore the role that education, imagination, and creativity have to play in coming to grips with a world in a state of transformation. Our Panelists David Brin P.J.

Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon present a new series that carries on the exploration begun on FastForward Radio.
The world is changing in ways that are difficult to predict, sometimes even dificult to imagine.
Forget about THE future. Let's talk about YOUR future.
If this truly is the greatest period of transformation in human history, what does that mean to each of us?
How will our lives be different?
What should we each be doing to prepare?
Phil and Stephen discuss the three major drivers of change we all need to be aware of and the one change that is crucial to making the future happen
Let the journey begin. Today is the day.
The World Transformed 2, Part 4 We can only imagine that, some 6 million years ago, when hominids began to stand upright, there was a tremendous controversy amongst the proto- australopithecines as to whether assuming this new posture was “natural.” Weren’t Lucy and her ilk simply violating their most basic nature? The debate has continued ever since, as humans have learned new skills and augmented their minds and bodies for reasons both aesthetic and practical. Today we liv

The World Transformed 2 Part 9 A convergence of emerging technologies and emerging possibilities lies at the heart of this, the greatest period of transformation in human history. Our world is changing in ways that are difficult to predict; sometimes even difficult to imagine. Accelerating technological change may soon alter our world beyond recognition...and maybe that's a good thing. Our Panelists Philippe Van Nedervelde Anders Sandberg Ray Kurzweil
The World Transformed 2, Part 7 Throughout human history, material scarcity has been a constant driver of innovation and economic growth. Today the world knows material abundance far beyond what could have been imagined a few centuries ago, even while shortages, poverty and want remain a reality for many. But that may not always be the case. New technologies suggest that we may be near a turning point in our long struggle with scarcity. In the near future, technology may make it possible for

The digital age has fundamentally transformed humanity's relationship with information. Through the advent of personal computer, Internet, smart phone, and social media technology, we have access to knowledge, to transactions, and to interpersonal communication that far transcends what was possible a few decades ago. The digitization of information has radically transformed almost every aspect of society -- from education to careers, from entertainment to personal relationships, rom child
The World Transformed 2, Part 2 Over the ages, humanity has faced its share of adversaries: ignorance, poverty, disease, predation to name just a few. No enemy has been more persistent than our own individual temporal finiteness. Our mortality has been such a relentless foe that many have attempted to make their peace, claiming that the temporary and transitory nature of our existence is what makes it truly meaningful. Death is a part of life, they explain. To which some o
