Creating the Necessary Conditions
for a Sustainable Future

Getting the Fundamentals
and Essentials Right


Lecture Presentation


Making the 21st century, the century of mental existence and mental development. Creating the necessary conditions for a sustainable future. Moving beyond socio-cultural differences, conflict and confrontation, beyond environmental exploitation, degradation and destruction. Development, change and transformation, from the inside out and from the ground up. From inside the mind and mental existence, beginning with the individual, individual mental existence and mental development. Understanding and managing existence and development, demands and challenges, problems and difficulties, change and changing conditions, at the level and within the context, of understanding and managing, in the first instance, mental existence and mental development. From within the mind and mental existence, as reflected in individual human experience. Establishing individually the necessary internal mental conditions, before engaging and dealing with external conditions, others and the world around us.

Not, as traditionally is the case, understanding and managing existence and development, from the top down and from the outside in, in a fragmented, generalized, dissociated and disconnected way, in the abstract. Understanding and managing them from the human-created socio-cultural level down to the level of the natural conditions of existence, from the social-collective, political, economic, scientific and technological level down to the level of the individual, from understanding and managing external conditions and the world around us, to understanding and managing internal mental conditions, mental existence and mental development. Dividing and separating the conditions, demands and challenges of existence and development into different issues, subject matters, disciplines, fields of study and areas of human activity, specialization and expertise. Each defined and governed by different, competing and conflicting assumptions, objectives, approaches and practices. Collectively creating the ideal external, socio-cultural and physical-material conditions, of an ordered, stable, secure and predictable world, of easy material abundance.
