Neptune-Pluto cycle 5 Global Period

During the 'long 20th Century' - roughly 1892-2012 - European imperialism gave way to superpower geopolitics and later to a collection of power blocs, but the overall trend was toward materially-led global integration dominated by mega-organisations and one dominant profit-seeking system of running civilisation and society. Enormous urbanisation and population growth took place, together with psycho-social and culutral changes and ideological battles unprecedented in human history. The survival and future of humanity came into question - a matter as yet unresolved. Yet amongst this, a global florescence of creativity and human endeavour which reached to the Moon and began a synthesis and transformation of all cultures of all times.
