[Quote No.69113] Need Area: Friends > Children
"[The process of coordinating and explaining preparing for life using our school subjects - the sciences and humanities - through the concept of the arrow of time, energy, matter, life and humanity - as well as the basics skills - mathematics and languages - through individual human's and societies' needs and desires makes the skills, knowledge and attitudes taught much more important, meaningful, relevant and practical:-] Big History is a new field on a grand scale: it tells the story of the universe over time through a diverse range of disciplines that spans cosmology, physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and archaeology, thereby reconciling traditional human history with environmental geography and natural history. Weaving the myriad threads of evidence-based human knowledge into a master narrative that stretches from the beginning of the universe to the present, the Big History framework helps students make sense of their studies in all disciplines by illuminating the structures that underlie the universe and the connections among them." - Richard B. Simon, Mojgan Behmand, Thomas Burke
This quote comes from the back of the book, 'Teaching Big History', by Richard B. Simon (Editor), Mojgan Behmand (Editor), Thomas Burke (Editor), December 2014, First Edition.

You know, 'What's my place in the universe? What does it mean to be a human being? What are human beings?' Existing courses cannot help you answer those questions. They can't even help you ask them. ...[but] Big History studies the history of everything, offering a way of making sense of our world and our role within it. ...Big History's not going to replace existing educational courses. It's not an attack on specialisation. It is simply the argument that specialisation needs to be complemented with an overview, which I think is scientific commonsense." - David Christian

Here's a guy who's read across the sciences, humanities, and social sciences and brought it together in a single framework. It made me wish that I could have taken big history when I was young, because it would have given me a way to think about all of the school work and reading that followed. In particular, it really put the sciences in an interesting historical context and explained how they apply to a lot of contemporary concerns." - Bill Gates

[Quote No.69125] Need Area: Friends > Children
"[Big History - history from the beginning of time and the universe through to the present and on into the future with your life's contribution and beyond; progress; futurology; futurist:-] If all goes well, human history is just beginning. Humanity is about two hundred thousand years old. But the Earth will remain habitable for hundreds of millions more -- enough time for millions of future generations; enough to end disease, poverty and injustice forever; enough to create heights of flourishing unimaginable today. And if we could learn to reach out further into the cosmos, we could have more time yet: trillions of years, to explore billions of worlds. Such a lifespan places humanity in its earliest infancy. A vast and extraordinary adulthood awaits!!" - Toby Ord

"[Big History - history from the beginning of time and the universe through to the present and on into the future with your life's contribution and beyond; progress; futurology; futurist; science and science-fiction:-]

Futures studies, futures research, futurism or futurology is the systematic, interdisciplinary and holistic study of social and technological advancement, and other environmental trends, often for the purpose of exploring how people will live and work in the future. Predictive techniques, such as forecasting, can be applied, but contemporary futures studies scholars emphasize the importance of systematically exploring alternatives. In general, it can be considered as a branch of the social sciences and an extension to the field of history. Futures studies (colloquially called 'futures' by many of the field's practitioners) seeks to understand what is likely to continue and what could plausibly change. Part of the discipline thus seeks a systematic and pattern-based understanding of past and present, and to explore the possibility of future events and trends.

... Futurology is an interdisciplinary field that aggregates and analyzes trends, with both lay and professional methods, to compose possible futures. It includes analyzing the sources, patterns, and causes of change and stability in an attempt to develop foresight. Around the world the field is variously referred to as futures studies, futures research, strategic foresight, futuristics, futures thinking, futuring, and futurology. Futures studies and strategic foresight are the academic field's most commonly used terms in the English-speaking world.

Foresight was the original term and was first used in this sense by H.G. Wells in 1932. 'Futurology' is a term common in encyclopedias, though it is used almost exclusively by nonpractitioners today, at least in the English-speaking world. 'Futurology' is defined as the 'study of the future.' The term was coined by German professor Ossip K. Flechtheim in the mid-1940s, who proposed it as a new branch of knowledge that would include a new science of probability. This term has fallen from favor in recent decades because modern practitioners stress the importance of alternative, plausible, preferable and plural futures, rather than one monolithic future, and the limitations of prediction and probability, versus the creation of possible and preferable futures.

Three factors usually distinguish futures studies from the research conducted by other disciplines (although all of these disciplines overlap, to differing degrees). First, futures studies often examines trends to compose possible, probable, and preferable futures along with the role 'wild cards' can play on future scenarios. Second, futures studies typically attempts to gain a holistic or systemic view based on insights from a range of different disciplines, generally focusing on the STEEP categories of Social, Technological, Economic, Environmental and Political. Third, futures studies challenges and unpacks the assumptions behind dominant and contending views of the future. The future thus is not empty but fraught with hidden assumptions. For example, many people expect the collapse of the Earth's ecosystem in the near future, while others believe the current ecosystem will survive indefinitely. A foresight approach would seek to analyze and highlight the assumptions underpinning such views.

As a field, futures studies expands on the research component, by emphasizing the communication of a strategy and the actionable steps needed to implement the plan or plans leading to the preferable future. It is in this regard, that futures studies evolves from an academic exercise to a more traditional business-like practice, looking to better prepare organizations for the future.

Futures studies does not generally focus on short term predictions such as interest rates over the next business cycle, or of managers or investors with short-term time horizons. Most strategic planning, which develops goals and objectives with time horizons of one to three years, is also not considered futures. Plans and strategies with longer time horizons that specifically attempt to anticipate possible future events are definitely part of the field. Learning about medium and long-term developments may at times be observed from their early signs. As a rule, futures studies is generally concerned with changes of transformative impact, rather than those of an incremental or narrow scope.

The futures field also excludes those who make future predictions through professed supernatural means.

To complete a futures study, a domain is selected for examination. The domain is the main idea of the project, or what the outcome of the project seeks to determine. Domains can have a strategic or exploratory focus and must narrow down the scope of the research. It examines what will, and more importantly, will not be discussed in the research. Futures practitioners study trends focusing on STEEP (Social, Technological, Economic, Environments and Political) baselines. Baseline exploration examine current STEEP environments to determine normal trends, called baselines. Next, practitioners use scenarios to explore different futures outcomes. Scenarios examine how the future can be different. 1. Collapse Scenarios seek to answer: What happens if the STEEP baselines fall into ruin and no longer exist? How will that impact STEEP categories? 2. Transformation Scenarios: explore futures with the baseline of society transiting to a 'new' state. How are the STEEP categories effected if society has a whole new structure? 3. New Equilibrium: examines an entire change to the structure of the domain. What happens if the baseline changes to a 'new' baseline within the same structure of society?

[Quote No.69177] Need Area: Friends > Children
"[The prefrontal cortex is the all-important part of the brain that handles reasoning and implies control, in counterbalance to the emotions and impulses generated in other parts of the brain. It is not fully developed in humans until after the age of twenty. This along with lack of the knowledge and experience necessary to make wise decisions is why most societies legally and socially accept and promote the concept of parental responsibility for their children's well-being until the age of legal consent and adult responsibility before the law:] ... We have a more highly developed prefrontal cortex than any other species. It's the seat of many behaviors that we consider distinctly human: logic, analysis, problem solving, exercising good judgment, planning for the future, and decision-making. It is for these reasons that it is often called the central executive, or CEO of the brain. Extensive two-way connections between the prefrontal cortex and virtually every other region of the brain place it in a unique position to schedule, monitor, manage, and manipulate nearly every activity we undertake. Like real CEOs, these cerebral CEOs are highly paid in metabolic currency. Understanding how they work (and exactly how they get paid) can help us to use their time more effectively. It's natural to think that because the prefrontal cortex is orchestrating all this activity and thought, it must have massive neural tracts for back-and-forth communication with other brain regions so that it can excite them and bring them on line. In fact, most of the prefrontal cortex's connections to other brain regions are not excitatory; they're the opposite: inhibitory. That's because one of the great achievements of the human prefrontal cortex is that it provides us with [the abilities to plan, focus and persist] impulse control and, consequently, the ability to delay gratification, something that most animals lack. Try dangling a string in front of a cat or throwing a ball in front of a retriever and see if they can sit still. Because the prefrontal cortex doesn't fully develop in humans until after age twenty, impulse control isn't fully developed in adolescents (as many parents of teenagers have observed). It's also why children and adolescents are not especially good at planning or delaying gratification." - Daniel J. Levitin

[Quote No.69426] Need Area: Friends > Children
"[Morality and ethics; empathy, compassion and the 'Golden Rule' of treating others as you'd like to be treated:-] A blow with a word strikes deeper than a blow with a sword! [While this seems at first hard to believe, especially as most people who grew up in the 20th century are familiar with the playground ditty 'Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me'. But if you stop for a moment and consider Maslow's Hierarchy of (Human) Needs it makes more sense. This is because most people, after their basic physical needs for safety and food, etc are met, next feel most strongly their needs for social appreciation, respect and status. This is especially important to children and the young who need things from parents and other adults. Therefore any verbal negativity regarding them suggests to them that people may not be there for them when they need help and so they can feel more hurt and in danger than a physical altercation that's quickly over and forgotten, without any lasting animosity or threat of further violence. Hence regardless of your own need or not for social acceptance it is very helpful in human relations to be very respectful of other's self-image and self-regard as any perceived slight to these can result in resentment, anger and retaliation - even to the point of what to all but the instigator is irrational violence. Many examples in jail can attest to this with their legal cases, where the rationale of being 'disrespected' is often used as justification for all sorts of crimes. In conclusion then it seems wise, when dealing with others and trying to empathize with them to be very sensitive to any statements that could be perceived as unnecessarily negative, impolite, harsh, threatening or aggressive. This will help you have greater tact and diplomacy which in turn should give you more peaceful, enjoyable and rewarding social interactions!]" - Robert Burton
(1577 - 1640) English scholar and vicar at Oxford University, best known for writing 'The Anatomy of Melancholy'.

"I imagine a school system that recognizes learning is natural, that a love of learning is normal, and that real learning is passionate learning. A school curriculum that values questions above answers...creativity above fact regurgitation...individuality above conformity.. and excellence above standardized performance..... And we must reject all notions of 'reform' that serve up more of the same: more testing, more 'standards', more uniformity, more conformity, more bureaucracy. " - Tom Peters
