the future…who? Doing what?

My students in College Writing have nearly completed the first essay on identity. Some of them engage time directly, other student authors include or rely on some concept or relation of time with identity only by implication. Most of the authors conceive of identity as an artifact generated or created, conditioned or limited, by the past. A few suggest a role for “the future” in their own identity, but how the future can influence identity in the present needs explanation.
I received the link to this online video clip, Did you know, from two sourcess within the last week: one describes it as “an awesome summary” and the other source calls it “evolutionary information.”
The clip is a little more than six minutes’ worth of estimates concerning various global conditions intended to provoke – perhaps even mobilize – thought.
