Synopsis:

Since the dawn of mankind, the world has been constantly changing.

The history of mankind is a series of upheavals, changes and revolutions. From the hunter-gatherer on the African savannah to today’s hyper-connected man, we can measure the extraordinary destiny of homo sapiens.

As the ancient Greek philosopher put it: ‘The only thing that does not change is change itself’.

Yet as we move into the third millennium, many observers and experts are diagnosing a massive acceleration in the pace of change in the world.

We are slowly emerging from a very long historical period which can be counted in the millions of years. We are the contemporaries of a shift in civilisation.
