The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind—creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers and meaning makers . These people—artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big picture thinkers—will now reap society’s richest rewards and share its greatest joys.” </li></ul>
