   go to previous choice         Choice #13: the 2♦ card            go to next choice 



I think the end of the world, or some catastrophe after which life won’t be the same, is imminent—perhaps in my lifetime.  While my belief is based on a hopeful expectation—God's victory (led by the return of a beloved religious leader / prophet) and the final triumph of good over evil— I realize there are other possibilities.  The end could come with the triumph of evil, or God’s disgust with His Creation and decision to start anew with a clean slate by means of His choosing.


I think that computer-based analysis and planning can cope with a wide range of problems, from local neighborhood ones to global climate. Modeling physical systems with many levels of organization, even modeling ecosystems, is much easier than tackling social systems. That task should involve “dancing”: humbly gathering and valuing data, learning, being mentally flexible / alert to how the system creates its behavior, and to feedback.  We plan / anticipate Trends ==> Predictions ==> Policy Changes. Averting catastrophe to create a future we choose.
