Presentation given for ZDAY2011 in Portland OR. How can the transition happen, what would a possible transition look like, and is the transition we are talking about even unique in Earth's history? And what can we do today?
Sebastian Chedal presents the connection between current world changes and past evolutionary patterns. We look at evolutionary cycles, energy curves, growing cycles of innovation and adaptation.
Concepts from Spiral Dynamics, Ken Wilber, Steve Macintosh Integral Philosophy, Venus Project, Permaculture and Gift Economics.
The final part of this presentation analyses global initiatives related to the Venus Project and the Zeitgeist Movement so that people who are interested in making a change today have options regarding where they can get involved.
