For generations, humanity stared at the vastness of the oceans and wondered, "What if?" Today, having explored the curves of the Earth, we now stare at endless stars and wonder, "What if?" Our technology has brought us to the make-or-break moment in human history. We can either grow complacent, and go extinct like the dinosaurs, or spread throughout the cosmos, as Carl Sagan dreamed of. What if your toothbrush becomes smarter than you? What happens to your business, your country, your planet and yourself? What if your car doesn't need a driver anymore? What if we don't need to age and die? What if machines are smarter than us? What if, instead of fear of the future - you see opportunity, instead of an end - you see a beginning, instead of loss - you see profit, and instead of death - you see life? What if you and your organization get future-primed? For many years Nikola Danaylov has been interviewing the future and motivating people all over the world to embrace rather than fear it. "Conversations with the Future" was born from those interviews and Nik's unceasing need to explore "What If" with some of the most forward thinking visionaries in the world today.

Are we prepared for the 21st century? There is room for doubt. The future seems increasingly uncertain, hard to decipher, ambiguous in its very indeterminism, sometime frankly illegible. If it is impossible to predict the future, one can at least help to shape it. To respond in a timely manner to the challenges of the 21st century, one must start by posing the right questions so as to identify possible solutions, if any, before it is too late. This is precisely the role of future-oriented studies and forward thinking as represented in this volume. Originating as it does in a UNESCO series of encounters and exchanges between scientists, intellectuals, artists, decision-makers, and leading personalities from public life, it offers a forum for an open debate, in the spirit of a new ethic of discussion, on a wide range of problems, challenges and solutions from a variety of perspectives. In short what this volume strives to achieve is to contribute to an ethic of the future.

Wir sind nicht klüger als die Menschen, die erlebt haben, wie überall in Europa die Demokratie unterging und Faschismus, Nationalsozialismus und Kommunismus kamen. Aber einen Vorteil haben wir. Wir können aus ihren Erfahrungen lernen. „Leiste keinen vorauseilenden Gehorsam.“ So lautet die erste von 20 Lektionen für den Widerstand, mit denen Timothy Snyder die Bürger der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika vorbereitet auf das, was gestern noch unvorstellbar zu sein schien: einen Präsidenten, der das Gesicht der Demokratie verstümmelt und eine rechtsradikale Tyrannei errichtet. Doch nicht nur in den USA sind Populismus und autoritäres Führertum auf dem Vormarsch. Auch in Europa rückt die Gefahr von rechts immer näher – als ob es das 20. Jahrhundert und seine blutigen Lehren niemals gegeben hätte. Snyders historische Lektionen, die international Aufsehen erregt haben, sind ein Leitfaden für alle, die jetzt handeln wollen - und nicht erst, wenn es zu spät ist. Lektion 8: „Setze ein Zeichen.“ Dieses Buch tut es. Tun Sie es auch.

Spirale der Gewalt Einmal mehr steht die Erde vor einem globalen Krieg, der die Menschheit zu vernichten droht. Um das Überleben unserer Spezies zu sichern, schicken Forscher eine Sonde ins Alpha-Centauri-System. An Bord: eine genetische Datenbank, künstliche Gebärmütter, Embryonen und Roboter, die diese vollautomatisch geborenen Kinder aufziehen und unterrichten sollen. Wider Erwarten überstehen die Menschen jedoch den Konflikt und bauen die zerstörte Zivilisation einmal mehr auf. Als Jahrzehnte später die Kolonie meldet, dass die erste Generation der Siedler erfolgreich aufgezogen wurde, schicken die irdischen Großmächte Raumschiffe aus, um Anspruch auf den fremden Planeten zu erheben – und wieder droht ein Krieg mit verheerenden Folgen ...
