The paper looks at how findings from the field of psychology can be used to predict how humans will act as our species comes (potentially) to its dark terminus. At the same time, the paper looks at how psychology's findings can be used to identify positive forces that can be harnessed in a desperate bid to save humankind from itself. In particular, the paper explores how psychological knowledge will be needed and utilized in the event that humanity can find a way to interact constructively with the fragile ecosystem around it. The paper concludes that human beings are headed down a treacherous path - but there is still some hope that, with a fresh perspective and new thinking, the end does not have to be the eternal darkness some foresee.

From the Paper:

"The scientific community is not very hopeful about the future of humanity; indeed, extrapolating such things as population growth, increasing urbanization throughout the world (with its attendant pollution and voracious consumption of the globe's natural resources), and troubling trends when it comes to the earth's ecosystem (global warming, deforestation, and steadily-growing deserts in places like China), scientists predict that mass starvation, civil war, possibly disease epidemics and maybe even species extinction could all be not far away."
