Session 11 – A Role Model
We need a social environment that plays with us as with kids, and that excites us and challenges us. Who can provide us with such an environment? It is those wise people who understand our path of development. As parents, we are building an environment that will affect us and that will shape our future form. When we integrate ourselves into that kind of an environment, we will change according to it and develop more quickly. We will have before us a good and attractive example that we will follow by the collective force and strength of society, and thus change ourselves. The results of our study should be very tangible and practical.
It is clear to us that we need an environment where we are all connected together. What can we envision as a perfect environment? An environment that is the complete opposite of all the crises appearing today: no divorce, people on good terms with each other—children with parents, international relations, no wars, no weapons, no terrorism, no drugs, and no debts. We must build such an environment that acts as a role-model, so it influences and profoundly affects us. We need to absorb its values so it persuades us and "reprograms" us into similarity to it.
How can this be done? Perhaps it should be a virtual environment, since we are all online. Perhaps it could be an environment presented to us through the media, since we all get many of our societal values through the media. Perhaps this should not be an environment for adults, but only for children. In this case, we will need turn kindergartens and schools into environments that educate children around these things.
Or, perhaps it should be an environment for adults? There are millions of unemployed workers throughout the world, and they don't know what to do or how to bring up their children. They are hurting, now seeing what is happening to their children, and will quite likely be happy to learn these new things through TV shows that we will produce. This can be an example for them, and they, in turn, will be able to affect their children toward a good and happy way of living.

We have to build a model environment of our final state, in which there will be a good and nice connection amongst people. This is in order for that example that we build to attract us to be like it.
- We will work with the wise people who understand our path of development, to provide all with an environment that will develop us toward the good.
- The model environment should be adapted to everyone, at any age.

Man can learn altruistic behavior from nature – "If we help others in times of their need, we ourselves may get help when we are in trouble, and in the end, our human race will have better chances of survival."Article: "Help yourself - Be selfless"
"As a society, we have to learn better how to learn – I call it social learning; it is the dynamism for change that could lead us to a new kind of society that will not destroy itself from its own excesses… for we must share a vision for a new society before we can realize it."From Proceedings of the 52nd Annual Meeting of the ISSS (International Society for the Systems Sciences ), "Vision and Values for a World of Insurmountable Opportunities"
