3 “Today, [we] are functionally linked together in a vast organic system…The earth [is] not only becoming covered by myriads of grains of thought, but becoming enclosed in a single thinking envelope.” --Teilhard de Chardin, 1925

6 Intertwined worldwide issues Energy Food/water Health/disease Global warming Pollution Languages Trade blocks Intellectual property Terrorism/security Education Population growth Aging populations Religion Political Standards Paradoxes abound
