A new era is dawning. Within less than two decades a fundamental change has taken place in our lives. Humanity, which has so far existed in one defined world, now exists simultaneously in both a real and a virtual world. We have developed a parallel universe, one that exists, is significant, powerful and even threatening. We are all present in that world, and it has practical implications for all aspects of our lives. This book deals with the Era of the Global Individual. It describes the Global Person’s formation process and addresses the ideological, educational and leadership challenges stemming from this new reality while offering practical tools for contending with them. These tools are based on innovative research dealing with the crossroads between research on emotions and technology, and the wisdom we have acquired through the ages.
This book is a definite wake up call. Our lives have become so wrapped up in technology, that we often find ourselves in irritable moods when we don't have access to it. Have you ever woken up in the morning, and done the "OMG wheres my phone" shimmy in the bed? Then you know exactly what I am talking about.
Life was not like that for me growing up...we didn't spend our days playing video games, surfing the Internet, or arguing with someone on the other side of the world on Facebook. We played outside, and had real life, face to face interactions with our friends.
Don't get me wrong, technology and its advances can be a great thing...think saving a premature babies life, or helping a non-verbal child "talk"...but for the most part, we as a society have become so warped by technology, that we cant seem to think outside of the box for very long, without feeling out of control.
This book is a must read, because it makes you think. You can find Humanity's Global Era on Amazon for .99
