Sample Topic:Redefining Success in an Age of Numbers
Audience: General Interest
For most of us, numbers and math are to be both feared and revered. We bestow god-like powers on the objectivity and rationality of numbers, and use them to define success in almost every aspect of our lives, our communities, and our world. However, we are slowly beginning to realize that the precedence society gives to number-based values could well be responsible for some of the biggest challenges facing the planet.
In this fascinating talk, author Andrew Welch identifies the one core assumption we make that underpins our new world and threatens our very survival as a species. Hear his unique take on the triggers of climate change, economic collapse, and energy crises, and prepare to have some personal value assumptions challenged. Better yet, envision the possibility of living beyond the numbers and getting immeasurably more out of life!
