Tired of Doom and Gloom? What You Can Do Instead (Video)


Written and Narrated by William E. Halal.

The COVID pandemic is the latest horror now added to climate change, authoritarian government, conflict everywhere, and other end-of-the-world threats. The Global Health Security Index recently rated nations at an average of 38.9 points on a scale of 100. They concluded that “every country, including the US, remains dangerously unprepared for…future pandemics.” And a PEW Research Center poll finds that only 17 percent of people in democratic nations are confident in the US as a role model of democracy. No wonder we often feel a sense of doom and gloom. 

I have studied the direction of the world’s crises for years, and my work suggests that a feasible path through this turmoil is possible. What we’ve learned is that the Knowledge Age is now fading as smartphones, social media and artificial intelligence automate knowledge.

Knowledge is still crucial, but the digital revolution is driving the world beyond knowledge into a new frontier governed by emotions, values, beliefs and higher-order subjective thought.

BOOK: Beyond Knowledge

Beyond Knowledge: How Technology Is Driving an Age of Consciousness
by William E. Halal.

book cover of Beyond Knowledge: How Technology Is Driving an Age of Consciousness by William E. Halal.The Knowledge Age of the past two decades is passing today as the digital revolution and artificial intelligence replace knowledge work. Halal’s study of social evolution explains how this marks the passage to a new frontier beyond knowledge that is poorly understood – an “Age of Consciousness” is here. But more pandemics, climate change, gross inequality, gridlock and other threats form a “Crisis of Maturity” that is blocking this historic transformation.

This book provides a wealth of evidence and leading examples of an emerging “global consciousness” now driving the world to grow up, resolve this global crisis and develop a sustainable world order – or perish. With foresight and hard work, we could see the triumph of human spirit, once again.
