Today’s discussion starts off with an investigation of storylines and narratives. Are storylines a necessity for the human species, perhaps an element that is intrinsic to our DNA? What role do they serve in furthering our evolutionary progress to a new paradigm, and how often are they at odds with such progress? Do storylines have an expiration date at which they outlive their usefulness and then require a new narrative to take over? Helping us to answer some of these questions we are joined by the renowned author, researcher, and futurist Kingsley Dennis.
This deeply informative discussion moves on to explore such matters as the price of excessive individualism and the spirit of play.
