This book tells something of how we have, in modern civilization, been given, unlike any that went before us, a taste of the enormous abundance, health and opportunity which the future may bring to our children.
Scientific and technological civilization is the legacy of many of the greatest minds the human race has produced, its development, and today’s threats against it, explained and traced in part here.
The alternative to scientific and technological civilization will guarantee for Mankind a regression into a second Stone Age, which will be terminal. Humans may live brief, stultified, animal existences filled with pain and terror, perhaps for a time under the rule of war-lords or shamans, as supplies of easily-obtained metal and fuel give out and the environment is denuded to provide the bare necessities of existence, with animal lives like those of the African savannah-dwellers from whom humanity sprang, this in turn ending in complete animalism or extinction.
But this book also argues that the continuance of spiritual, scientific, humanistic and technological heritage of Western civilization, may give Mankind the opportunity for a deeper and truer spiritual life, a more wonderful world, and the stars.

Hal G. P. Colebatch, PhD, is the prize-winning author of many books and has been described as one of Australia’s best writers and leading intellects.
