Summary: Humanity is experiencing great trauma and crises during the current phase of globalization. Where and how are we looking for solutions? We keep focusing on areas where we have invested the most and are doing relatively but selectively well—the economy, technology and physical science, while we increasingly disregard the root causes of the confusing dilemma and the sources of possible solutions: our blind spots on the vital resources of human dignity and human agency, history and nature. (Garcia, 2017) (Haque, 2018).
We can address the inconsistencies in globalization, such as the Silo Mindset, irrational behavior, the appearance of a fragmented or non-existent reality, and desolation, if: we choose: a) to continue learning cooperatively and responsibly in the struggle for closer yet endless approximations to truth, b) to recover constructive and honest communication, and c) evolve towards greater maturity through paradigms, which can reveal cultural and natural interdependence as a priority on par with economic and technological interdependence.
