The world is full of Abundance, and we have the technology to prove it
By Meagan Hampel at Cybera
Optimists – you have just cause to feel smug. We truly do live in a beautiful world.
You just need to have the right perspective when looking at the world. Yes, there are many problems and issues. But the solutions are out there, well within our grasp.
That is the overriding lesson being taught, Abundance: the future is better than you think, a book by science writer Steven Kotler, and entrepreneur, philanthropist and all-around very smart man, Peter H. Diamandis, being released later this month…
