The Fate of Humanity is about two things: The oneness of humanity, and humanity’s path toward maturity. My central message is that as a species, we can mature beyond all prejudice and xenophobia, and we can also save our beautiful, fragile planet. We can begin to live lives that are consistent with the true power of our minds. We can grow up.
I believe that at the end of each show, you will be aware of and understand many perspectives on issues of which you may formerly have been utterly unaware. My promise is that the show will usually educate and hopefully, often utterly fascinate you. The most important thing that I offer is an opportunity for you to gain or perhaps to regain your awe and wonderment about The Big Questions. It’s an opportunity for you to open your mind, and in so doing, to soften your heart.
