SIMPLY IN GOD’S HANDS:
APOCALYPTICISM

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.

COMPLEXITY--IN OUR HANDS:
DANCING WITH SYSTEMS

Complex systems are difficult to model due to interacting parts and distinct properties that can arise unexpectedly. Modeling physical systems with many levels of organization, even ecosystems, is much easier than tackling social systems. That task, applicable to a wide range of problems, should involve “dancing”: humbly gathering and valuing data, learning, being mentally flexible / alert to how the system creates behavior, and to feedback. We plan and anticipate. Trends ==>Predictions==>Policy Changes. Averting catastrophe to create a future we choose.
