It is my view that everyone and everything are connected and our actions have an impact on us and all those around us for better or worse. Because I am an optimist I believe it is mostly for the better.
To observe in the progress of the human race you just need to acquiesce, to participate and change things you not only need to be curious, you need to set your objectives, work hard, convince others, be persistent and believe you can achieve your goals.
At the moment and for the recent past one of my own major fields of interest has been ‘health affairs’ including how modern practices are, in part, moving towards a more holistic approach (following the Ancients?) and how this is going to prolong our lives. The extension of human life is one of the major drivers of the changes in society that we are seeing and will see in the future.
