the secret of successful adaptation

Man is a creator. He is driven to realize what he can imagine. He can imagine new forms for both himself and his environments. He therefore has the potential for continuously recreating himself and the world about him.

Man feeds on information. lf inputs lead to satisfying outputs, he thrives, grows and creates harmony. lf rising inputs are frustrated from realization for whatever reason, he creates havoc both within himself and in his surroundings.

Improvements in communications, and their proper use, have therefore been the chief secret of man’s successful adaptation.
