    We stand at a crossroads, where comprehension of our place in nature—of our true abilities and of our history— is supremely important. We have formed a global civilization of unprecedented might, driven forward by the power of our minds—a civilization that is transforming our Earth. We are masters of technology, and of comprehension, but it’s what we believe that may, from now on, determine our fate. We are now equipped as never before to explore our true relationship with the planet on which our biological, economic and cultural futures depend.
