Our concerns thus fall in the upper right hand corner of the space-time graph.
A model is simply an ordered set of assumptions about a complex system.
We, too, have used a model.
to improve our mental models
the scientific method, systems analysis, and the modern computer
seeking to understand the causes
global in scope, time horizon
open to inspection, traced without error by a computer
what it tells us about the world
people who have looked at the world
are inconsistent
probable result will be a rather sudden and uncontrollable decline
it is possible to alter these trends
each person on earth
has an equal opportunity to realize his individual human potential
we are quite frankly overwhelmed
raise the space time horizons, from growth to global equilibrium
