  1. What we do with the future depends as much upon a renaissance of human VALUES as it does upon SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY. In other words, we need a 21st century philosophy that focuses on fully developing human potential (in constructive ways) and developing values and responsibilities for SELF, SOCIETY, & ENVIRONMENT. Such a philosophy called THE POTENTIALIST MOVEMENT provides this foundation. With it, science and technology can be most fully developed and directed toward a positive and constructive future. First things first.
