I had planned to do a new Global Update for you today, and then something happened. I thought of a full blown lecture. Crazy. I think this is the fastest creation of any 90 minute lecture I have ever done, but it’s a full 90-minute lecture, with bullet points and graphics, on a theme that truly took over my consciousness.
This is the idea of “measuring” our path toward what I have been calling Humanity’s Fourth Stage. Since this is an idea that I continue to believe has a great deal of power, I thought, “is there a way to measure how far toward achieving this new stage we have gone?”
I believe there is, and I immediately came up with a series of categories by which to do so. Now, I think this is very preliminary, but I do think it’s a decent start. I would truly be interested in what you think about this. Namely, what ought to be added, removed, or emphasized differently. There is a lot to think about here.
It was a nice feeling delivering a lecture again. I decided to do it right and put on a nice shirt and tie. Good lectures deserve that. In retrospect, I am not sure this is the most catchy title I could have come up with, but it is accurate at least.
Please let me know what you think.
btw, I have several new things in the works for you over the next few days. Stand by.
