    OUR WORLD IN TURMOIL AND TRANSITION ?As our own species is in the process of proving, one cannot have superior science and inferior morals. The combination is unstable and self-destroying? Arthur C. Clarke (1965). The 2020?s have already revealed exceptional and pervasive interruptions to business and life as usual. From Covid-19 to bio-diversity collapse and climate change, many species, including our own, require unprecedented responses to the existential threats prematurely killing us, nature and livelihoods. Commentators expect the way we see our future on the planet to have permanently changed. Most are grappling with what this will or should be like and who might take us on the journey there, whilst we also have the emergence of AI, hacking of the brain and emotions, quantum computing, and the accompanying rise of ?educated? machines and devices.
