Video Posted Dec. 2021: The Future of Sense-Making (Horizons Canada)

Study Questions for Group Discussion:    

  1. The subtitle is “Four Areas of Change in the Way We Think, Choose and Behave.”  How do these four areas that outline the video inter-relate to each other?
  2. What kind of wording and associations are used to describe the partnership between humanity and artificial intelligence?
  3. How has the Tower of Babel motif been re-interpreted? To what end?
  4. The conclusion draws a contrast between “splintered reality” and “shared reality,” suggesting we will need more of the latter to survive in a changing world. What are the implications of this message?

5. Finally, WWET?  What Would Ellul Think?
