Our Fears Transformed

It is both exciting and daunting to live in an age in possessed of so much possibility as demonstrated by the wide array of topics discussed in this series. It’s exciting because our awareness of possibility is so much greater than it was even a generation or two ago. And it is daunting for exactly the same reason. We can envision plausible triumphs for humanity that really do transcend our wildest dreams, or at least our most glorious fantasies as articulated a few decades ago. Likewise, we can envision bleak and dangerous scenarios, including that worst of all possible outcomes — the sudden and utter disappearance of our civilization, or of our species, or of life itself. Such a fate now presents itself as the end result of not just one possible calamity, but of many.

A panel of futurists discuss how our worst fears need not hold us back, and can in fact help ensure our future.
