Homo Sapiens Report, Schumacher Century’ is an adaptation of ‘HSR, the Future of Humanity’. It is a highly visual presentation by Oscar winner Michael Wadleigh on how a desirable future might be achieved. It spans the 130,000 years Homo Sapiens (HS) have been a fully modern species covering all major HS characteristics and institutions – social, psychological, physiological, political, economic, environmental – science thought experiments and symbolic graphics are used to understand where HS have been, what they’re all about, and where they’re likely going.
To say the least, present HS global behaviors and institutions are not sustainable, even for the next 40 years. Solutions for global sustainability are enumerated: HS must change fundamental political-economic-environmental laws and education; for this, guiding questions in a 130,000 year HS context include, “What is it to live life as a human being?”, “What if everyone did what I-we do?”
