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 magnitude and complexity of the present economic-social-political system — 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 views the chaos and life-threatening difficulties the world is experiencing as economic, social, political, and environmental crises. Based on that view, countless visionary sectoral policies and programs have been proposed and implemented. Still, the crises persist and deepen; and the planetary condition continues to deteriorate. 


The fear is widely expressed that Planet Earth is heading for mass extinction; and, even more troubling, that the impending tragedy is accelerating. Leading and concerned scientists interpret a rapidly deteriorating ecosystem as sign of a global society which is approaching a catastrophic demise.   


The questions are: 


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

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

  3. Better, might it be that we have been tackling the symptoms, rather than the root cause, of our problem?  

 
A body of data no one thought and no one knew existed sheds valuable new light on the modern crises and points the way out of our predicament. The data, a compendium of authentic and illuminating insights into the nature of human nature, is presented in
Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature. 


Analysis and synthesis of these insights suggest that the chaos and life-threatening difficulties the world is experiencing are the result of attempting to build human civilization on a view of human nature which is deeply flawed or, at best, inadequate and misleading.   


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


  1. Humans are quintessentially creative beings — Homo Creativus — driven naturally and primarily to develop and end 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 certainly are not due to assumed human depravity, or human propensity to evil.

  3. The prevailing, widely accepted economic-social-political-environmental understanding of our predicament is both inaccurate and misleading; and that inaccuracy accounts for why we are finding it difficult to resolve our present predicament.

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

  5. As long as we continue to hold on to the belief and to tackle “economic,” “social,” “political,” and “environmental” crises — ignoring 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 think about 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 and social progress;

  • necessary for inclusive and truly participatory politics and governance;

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

  • necessary for building a viable, ecologically-enhancing, humanly-fulfilling planetary future. 


And, considering the magnitude of the difficulties the world is experiencing and their ominous implications for our planetary future, setting right the way we define ourselves would seem to be the central issue of our generation and, ultimately, the "historical mission" of the modern era.
