People generally fall into two categories. Those with closed minds, and those with open minds. Natural Reality is dedicated to the latter. It examines the significance of natural limits to life, with the intent of distilling out how our species might better serve our Planet. The approach adopted, puts conventional wisdom to the test. Based on instinct, common sense and experience, it provides a multi-disciplinary snapshot of where Homo sapiens (H.sapiens) stands in our Universe. The story starts with a brief outline of ‘what was’, tracing the path of evolution on Earth. That is followed by a synopsis of ‘what is’, essentially highlighting the salient features of the choices made by contemporary society. A third section, ‘What if’, serves as a hypothetical exploration of viable futures.
