Nick and Matt presented the history of the world in 20 minutes in conjunction with our principle #6: World community with peace and justice. Afterwards we had an interesting discussion about where civilization has been, what has lead us to this point, and how transient it all is. History is full of echos. Another thing that history teaches us about the modern world is that major changes in society are usually paired with major changes in technology. We are facing a major change in our technology today. Computing power and the overwhelming numbers of people on the planet have brought about the Anthropocene age. We will discuss this further in the future.
Come join us. We would love to have your input too. Every week is different, but every week will have a presentation based on one of our 7 principles (see them elsewhere... Google knows how to find them.)
