FOREWORD "YOU AND YOUR FUTURE" Shaping And Shocking Future Behavior There appears in the behavior of man today an increasing "future-consciousness" in terms of survival and eschato- logical speculation. In responding to hurtling accelerated, uncontrollable, unpredictable and uncertain change, man's ability to cope with present and future demands is threat- ening to undo us. We ask, What will my future be like? What will be the shape of the future? The search for an- swers to these questions is mind-bogging, complex and heuristic. Kierkegaard concluded that: "Life must be understood backward, but must be lived forward". For certain, the fu- ture belongs to the efficient and to those prepared. If you do not prepare and plan for the future, then you prepare and plan to fail. The future is now, today! We suffer fu- ture shock now. Alvin Toffler, in his book Future Shock, defines future shock as: "The distress, both physical and psychological, that arises from an overload of the human organism's physical adaptive systems and its decision-male ing processes". In other words, future shock is the human response to overstimulation, which can cause a "crash" in future landing. The amount of stress and strain now im- posed on the individual may well overstretch and over- load his capacity to adopt, adjust, and cope with the now and the later. Modern man today is caught between a dilemma of living in the best of times and simultaneously the worst of times. On the one hand, for example, we are living in a scientific technological age of space shuttles, moon land- ing, nuclear energy, subscription interactive cable-qube T.V. providing audience participation in dialogue, banking, polling, politics, education, security, etc., by pushing but- tons on the set at home. On the other hand, at the same time, we are living in the throes of inflation, unemploy- ment and high taxation, a resurgencefresurrection of the KKK and Nazi groups, a returning to neighborhood schools, outlawing busing for integration: a slip-sliding backward to a conservative mood in politics, religion, race relations: a rise of the "moral majority", the electronic fundamentalist churches and the new right: a revival of crime and violence as expressed in killings of black inno- cent children tAtlantaj, of black males tliuffaloj, of presi- dents and leaders, and a spreadingfcontagion of unethical corruption as demonstrated in dishonesty, mistrust, greed, bribes, cover-ups, abscams, riots and others. The trend re- sembles a "slip-sliding backward". Yet, in spite of the seemingly imposing gloom and doom, there remains an optimistic hope and a bright side some- where. lt's up to us to find it and fan its flame. Remem- ber, the future is in God's hand and our hand. God gave us two ends: one to sit on and one to think with. lt's up to you which one you use. Heads you win, tails you lose! The lyrics of the song, "Swinging on a Star" are relevant: Would you like to swing on a star Carry moon-beams home in a jar, and be better off than you are . . . Finally, I do not know what the shape of the future will be, or what the future holds for me. But I do know who controls and holds the future-God, who will shape and control your behavior if you let him. Shakespeare writes: "There is a Divinity that shapes our ends, rough-hew them how we will". I believe this truism. And because He tGodj lives, I can face tomorrow without fear, and remain ALIVE, FULLY FUNCTIONING, AND COMING TO TERMS WITH MY ENVIRONMENT, today, tomorrow and forever. lt's up to you to do likewise! Dr. Grady Davis Professor of Psychology
