    22. 22. The new resource industry? "The real treasures in futures are not in the ground. The real resources are within us. But most of those resources are neglected because many people are arrested in their development at a certain age, and because human development is seen only as educational development – you learn more and more but you don’t look at your inner sources of imagination.” Futurist Robert Jungk
