Outside of fear and confusion, the cataclysmic predictions of a dying world at the end of 2012 has brought our society a renewed sense of vulnerability. We understand more than ever, that any new knowledge gain, the more powerful it is to do good, it can also be misused to do unimaginable harm. From here on, our curiosity and drive to better our society can lead to it's sustained prosperity, or alternatively to our own extinction if we fail to live responsibly. It is our new reality. It were these novel concepts which pushed me to explore my own fear of this reality.
