A look at the development of humans on Earth; their philosophical wonderings about creation, consciousness and their position in the universe. Speculation on human psychology and the mind, with an outline of how the brain operates, gives some indication of the capacity of humans to imagine, invent and establish a new world with a sustainable future. Humans have developed the capability to destroy life as it has been known for the last hundred million years or so. Consideration of the past may ensure that what people do in the future will bring recognition of the rights for everyone on this planet to live in harmony.
