A world in flux — our relationship with change
The pandemic and its massive impact on every aspect of our lives for the past 18 months has been a wakeup call on change, especially that which we cannot control.
For centuries, our human ingenuity has sought to control our environment and engineer our future. Our fervent belief that we can somehow control and architect our future has bred successive technical revolutions from the19th to the 21st century. Each technical revolution (we are in the 4th) has occurred at a far more rapid pace than the one preceding it, bringing technical innovations with both noble as well as destructive consequences. And yet our relationship with change itself is fraught. When our world is in flux and our lives turned upside down, how should we view and manage change?
