New Corollaries require
New Thinking in order to create
an image of the future.
Without an image of the future,
life is futile,
there is no hope
there is no power
to change the present.
All change starts in the mind.
We humans have always been able to look to the past, and based upon a combination of
experience and intuition, were generally able to form some reasonable expectations of the
Throughout the ages, people have had to learn specific principles for survival and follow
common sense guidelines for success. The combination of specific principles and common
sense guide lines form corollaries. Each age had, or will have, a different composite of
corollaries. These corollaries were generally taught from generation to generation.
There have been only three instances in history when these corollaries transitioned
dramatically. During these three instance the corollaries (principles, paradigms, and
protocols) that used to work, either stop working or worked to a much lesser degree.
The three instances of transition to new corollaries were characterized by confusion
since the past could not be used to reasonably define the future.
The first transition was the long, slow transition from
the hunter-gatherer era to the agricultural age.
The second transition was the more rapid shift from the
agricultural age to the industrial age.
And currently, we are transitioning at the speed of thought from
the industrial age to the information age.
The hunter-gatherer era.
The hunter-gather era was hand to mouth existence at its most primitive level.
Survival depended on killing animals with primitive tools or gathering wild plants to eat.

A vignette in the life of a hunter-gatherer. Many of Bev Doolittle’s paintings illustrate the
relationship between nature, the hunter and the hunted. The picture above, titled “Double

be a bear in the distance, near the top right of the picture. In reality, the bear has back tracked
and is hiding in the bushes at the left of the picture … waiting.
The agricultural age.
The agricultural age was the beginning of all of recorded (written) history. With agriculture came less
starvation, and more leisure time. Leisure time allowed for development of written languages. Written
languages form recorded history.
It has jestingly been suggested that the early agricultural age was when the word “vegetarian” was first used.
In primitive societies, “vegetarian” would be used to describe a very poor hunter. It was these “poor hunters”
who probably led the transition into the agricultural age.

“Can you help me?”
Ask for our help.
The worst that can happen is you will spend an hour talking with us, won’t

an hour older … which is normal thinking.
Don't put this off – you're worth it.
The future begins today.
is where we are going.
