BtF shows people that, however perfect they may think it is, their model is flawed, incomplete, out of date and inaccurate. For almost everyone this is a shock to their system. Once that is done we then show how to improve their mental models by re-perceiving their world. We show that from this they can choose what attitude they should have. The key word here is ‘choose'. Many of us do not think of attitude as a choice but Victor Frankl with his experiences in the concentration camps showed us so vividly and undeniably that, in his words, it is perhaps the one freedom that cannot be taken away – the freedom to choose one's own attitude. Once this is done BtF shows how to communicate in different ways that will engage fully. And then how to organize. Again in highly innovative ways, Ah – back to innovation again.
The key innovation here is how to help people re-perceive so that they can break through the barriers that separate them and meet in that space above and beyond difference with a positive and open attitude. BtF is a vital part of our educational initiative. The second tool I want to share with you is the World Model and the World Game. (These were invented by Anthony Hodgson, one of the world's most experienced systems thinkers and an advisory board member, of our Foundation. He was described by Peter Senge (Sen-ggee), author of The Fifth Discipline, as ‘The Master Facilitator when he helped with the formation of the Society for Organizational Learning.
National Geographic have also just published a Kid's version.
Our Foundation for Science, Technology and civilization has been doing that through exhibitions, publications, conferences and workshops. The most recent edition of the 1001inventions book is published by National Geographic.
Unfortunately the present educational system has a 1000 years amnesia as shown by the slide. This amnesia neglects the contribution of non-European cultures to science and technology. It engenders superiority complex amongst Europeans and Americans but at the same time it produces inferiority complex in the other neglected cultures.
It is essential that this gap is filled so that future generations can refer to their ancestors with positivity and thus create a connection between people within the space of the cultural roots of science.
