The Pattern Future: Finding the World's Great Secrets and Predicting the Future Using Pattern Discovery Reviews
Those of us who don't do the math, who don't know how to connect the dots--primarily because we don't see the dots, and who feel more comfortable reading poetry than physics, can gain great insight from Mark Anderson's book, "The Pattern Future." It is accessible and illuminating in the clear ways it presents complex issues. And there is no getting around it--we are living in complex times. Understanding how and why things work, or don't work, is essential if we are to shape a surviving and thriving future. Chapter 13, "The Education Crisis and Project Inkwell," had particular resonance for me. The education system was built "with the sole idea of resisting change," is all-too painfully true. As is Anderson's statement, "there is nothing more important than properly educating children." Looking back matters as much as looking forward. There are patterns of light and creation, and dark patterns of destruction. Understanding them is the beginning of change that matters--if we are to survive on this beleaguered and exquisite planet. "The Pattern Future" maps the way to a viable future--for all life on earth. -- Janet Thomas, Author of "The Battle in Seattle--The Story Behind and Beyond the WTO Demonstrations."
