The Logical and Necessary Starting Point for Global Recovery

Most people are alarmed and eager to help resolve the chaos and life-threatening difficulties the world is experiencing; but feel overwhelmed by the multitude and complexity of the crises: because one hardly knows where to begin.


This book, Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature, uncovers the logical and necessary starting point for planetary recovery and regeneration: A shift in the way we define ourselves and the purpose of our life. 


Conventional wisdom regards our present difficulties as economic, social, political, and environmental crises. Based on that view, various sectoral policies and programs have been proposed and tried. Still, the crises persist and deepen; and the planetary condition continues to deteriorate. 


There are fears that Planet Earth is heading for catastrophic demise — for mass extinction. Even more troubling, the signs are that the impending tragedy is accelerating. 


The questions arise: 


  1. Are the modern crises unsolved because they are too difficult to solve?

  2. Or, might it be that we have been solving the wrong problems?

  3. Stated differently: Might it be that we have been tackling the symptoms, inadvertently overlooking the root cause of our predicament?  

 
A rare collection of sobering and revealing insights into the nature of human nature sheds valuable new light on the modern crises, and points the way out of our predicament. The collection is presented in
Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature. 


Analysis and synthesis of the insights suggest that the dreadful "change-our-ways-or-perish" situation the world is facing is the result of attempting to build human civilization on a view of human nature which is seriously mistaken or, at best, inadequate.


Easy to read and universally accessible, Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature powerfully  and persuasively demonstrates that: 


  1. Humans are quintessentially creative beings — Homo Creativus — driven naturally and primarily to develop and to engage one’s natural abilities in meaningful and worthwhile functions — with economic consumption and material well-being as the means to that end.

  2. The modern crises and the global predicament are not economic, social, political, or ecological crises, per se. They are not separate crises, either. And they are not due to assumed human depravity, or to "human propensity to evil."

  3. The modern crises and the global predicament are, fundamentally, the widely accepted, but seriously flawed, economic conception of human nature; the institutions and ways of life that we have built on that misconception; and, resultantly, their tragic consequences.

  4. The prevailing, widely accepted economic-social-political-environmental understanding of our predicament is both inaccurate and misleading. That inaccuracy accounts for why we are finding it difficult to resolve the dreadful situation the world is facing.

  5. As long as we continue to tackle “economic,” “social,” “political,” and “environmental” crises — perhaps, inadvertently overlooking the fundamental misconception of human nature that gives rise to those crises — the planetary condition is likely to continue to deteriorate; resulting, plausibly, in the dreaded catastrophic demise.   


To the extent that the foregoing conclusions are valid, if we are to successfully resolve the chaos and life-threatening difficulties the world is facing, and to leave a viable Planet for future generations, the logical and necessary starting point is to set right the we way we define ourselves and the purpose of our life

Transformation. Climate Change. Global Warming. Species Loss. Sea temperature. Critical thinking.

A shift in the way define ourselves and the purpose of our life, Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature provides the logical and necessary starting point for planetary recovery and regeneration:

  • necessary for economic development, universal prosperity, and social progress;

  • necessary for inclusive and participatory politics, economy, and governance;

  • necessary for accurate understanding and successful resolution of the life-threatening difficulties the world is facing;  and

  • necessary for building  viable, ecologically-regenerative, humanly-fulfilling global civilization and planetary future. 


Considering the magnitude of our present difficulties and their ominous implications for our planetary future, setting right the way we define ourselves would seem to be the central project modern society and, indeed, the "historical mission" of our generation.
