Forecast of the focus of human attention in the twenty-first century
We are following the mission of proving that railways and bicycles are key transport and mobility sustainable modes, as they were once already. We are working toward avoidance of unsustainabilities one at a time – if possible by using existing resources.
[The Fifth Cultural Step] Most of this methodological development is taking place outside the established research institutions. Much of it has the character of kitchen-table experimentation, but this was also the case for technical revolutions up until the 1930s. How quickly things will evolve is difficult to tell, but it is worth remembering that it took no more than sixty-six from the when two bicycle repair men, the Wright brothers, got the aircraft to lift off until the Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. A great deal will happen over the next forty years.*
