I shall first deal with material inventions and innovations, and then I shall try to outline, as best I can, the far more important social innovations. I cannot expect to succeed entirely; these are problems, not for a single man, but for a whole generation. History must stop, the insane quantitative growth must stop; but innovation must not stop- it must take an entirely new direction. Instead of working blindly towards things bigger and better, it must work towards improving the quality of life rather than increasing its quantity. Innovation must work towards a new harmony, a new equilibrium; otherwise it will only lead to an explosion. Here is a supreme challenge for all the creative spirits of the new generation; stop the insane race towards overcrowding; stop the armaments race; stop growth addiction; form the New Man who can be at peace with himself and with his world.
