Many people experience the changes of the 21st Century as a Cultural Tsunami.  This paper examines the external situations that make the 21st Century vastly different than the 20th Century.  Then it proposes four foundational assumptions for creatively dealing with these changes.

The time has come, as presented here, to draw an imaginary line in the intellectual sand.  Either you say "We live in a created reality in which the task of each person is to fit in" or you say "We live in an emerging reality in which each person, plant and particle participates, actively or passively, in forging the shape of tomorrow",

An expansive and fresh way of looking at matters in the 21st Century is required.  This paper focuses on the External Realities, the Social Processes and the Interior Dimension as a wholistic approach to viewing contemporary events and issues.

New ways of telling the story of the human community and the Planet on which we live are required in the 21st Century.  The comparisson of the old story and a new one highlights the magnitude of the change.
