The underlying meaning of our times.
Humanity's deeper feelings.
The 20th Century involved a lot of corporate, governmental,
technological, economic and military development.
The emerging 21st Century agenda is an entirely different story.
It concerns human, cultural, social and environmental development.
These notes look at what we are to address

• Nations, cultures, tribes and the collective psyche •
• Globalisation, power, leadership, collective pain and fear •

• The twenty-first century agenda and the way ahead •
