The intelligence that meets humanity’s needs

A recent editorial in The Christian Science Monitor examined an important question: “As productivity slows, experts ask if an era of innovation is over. Has the digital revolution lost its juice?”

The editorial by the Monitor’s Editorial Board—“Finding ‘the next big thing,’ ” in the February 11, 2015, issue—is important because of the effect that the ups and downs in productivity and innovation have on humanity’s welfare. But it’s of interest also because of the deeper questions this issue poses about life itself and the intelligence that supports it—questions that affect all of us. As the editorial insightfully concluded: “Technology still drives change, but change first starts in intelligence and other qualities of thought. Measuring those is not as easy as measuring economic productivity. And yet they matter more.”

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
