Futurist David Houle identifies the three forces that are reshaping our world today and in the years ahead. The first video describes a trend that he labels the “Flow to Global” which focuses on the notion that we are “beginning to develop a global conscience” and that “everything is reorganizing around global[ism]”.
The second force addresses the “Flow to the Individual”, an increase in choice that makes us “much more powerful as individuals than at any other time in human history”.
The third trend, “Accelerating Electronic Connectedness”, is the catalyst for the first two. He points out that “50% of every person on this planet has a cell phone” and that “this connectedness combined with computer use and internet use is creating a whole new reality of of our ability to communicate instantaneously with one another.”
“This is going to change our consciousness,” he argues. Via
