DESCRIPTION: Beyond the soul's narrow horizon, there is a vision of what is yet to come, and a caring for those who will come after us. It is the future, the "undiscovered country," and to the shadows thereof we bequeath our legacy of hope and despair. The first of five pages on Visions (one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur), this page is a list of links to on-line resources in the study of the environment and the future (including the limits to growth). A group of coordinate pages, with common header and List of Contents, contains links to resources in bioastronomy and SETI studies.

KEYWORDS: environment; ecology; progress; limits; crisis; future studies; hope; eschatology

The two sins against Hope are presumption and despair.

From the Penny Catechism

Man, I concluded, may have come to the end of that wild being who had mastered the fire and the lightning. He can create the web but not hold it together, not save himself except by transcending his own image. For at last, before the ultimate mystery, it is himself he shapes. Perhaps it is for this that the listening web lies open: that by knowledge we may grow beyond our past, our follies, and ever closer to what the Dreamer in the dark intended before the dust arose and walked. In the pages of an old book it has been written that we are in the hands of a Teacher, nor does it yet appear what man shall be.

Environmental Crisis and News

Earth might be fair and all men glad and wise.
Age after age their tragic empires rise,
Built while they dream, and in that dreaming weep;
Would man but wake from out his haunted sleep,
Earth might be fair, and all men glad and wise.
Clifford Bax

Against the Fall of Night: The Final Frontier

What man believes about himself is of utmost moment, for it will determine the kind of world he will make and even his own fate.
Edmund Sinnott

The people of the earth are at war to decide whose interpretation of the past is going to shape the future of mankind. The ethos that will eventually conquer the minds of people will be the one that succeeds in creating a framework of historical understanding for which a believable and inspiring future for mankind may be constructed.
J. T. Fraser

I believe the time has come to abandon the poles of optimism and despair, and rediscover a much older emotion: hope. Hope belongs to a world which recognizes the idea of limits...
Charles, Prince of Wales

Eternity is very long, especially toward the end.
Woody Allen

"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
