Timelines of the 2010s to make sense of the 2020s

The global futurist, Jerome Glenn, CEO of the Millennium Project, has published Year in Review lists since 2010. By keeping track of this data in several STEEP timelines of the 2010s, we can identify the emerging planetary hot theme of the 2020s:

1/ The planet temperature is getting hotter

2/ The prospect of (nuclear) war is getting hotter

3/ The humanity's struggle towards (sexual) freedom is getting hotter

4/ The race for space tech and settlement is getting hotter

An introduction to the Introduction to the World History

Ibn Khaldun's most well known work is Introduction (Al-Muqaddimah) to the analysis of World History and large scale patterns of change. He wrote the masterpiece in almost five months when isolated, it was supposed to be a preface but under sudden inspirational creativity grew into a separate volume of theory building. The key binary opposite in the book is desert versus city dwellers and the idea of social solidarity (Asabiyyah), a basis for Social Cycle Theory of change, which explains the rise and fall of states and civilizations, using the laws governing the system dynamics of the governance and economy. In order to better study the futureS of governance and global consciousness we need neuroscience and politics together, a somewhat modern conceptualization of good/positive Asabiyyah.

Futures Studies

Futures studies is an art and a science with a strong emphasis on imagination and creativity in creating different possible futures. Its main purpose is to discover and master the complex chains of cause and effect through conceptualization, systemic approach, and feedback loops, ultimately providing innovation in the social and technological fields. There is a great and important distinction between Globalization and Planetization. Political spaces can benefit a great deal if some doubt is cast on the agenda of globalization and put in its place the idea of “planetization,” a planetary consciousness or identity.
