After Oil

Description

The oil-based world is dying but the new one is not yet born. Oil is a non-renewable source of energy, and really, someday it will all be gone. Yes, we are all aware of it, but we hardly believe it, and we seemingly refuse to act to face this obvious truth. We wouldn’t be the first civilization to witness its self-destruction, knowing that collapse is inevitable, but not capable of doing anything about it. This is denial of sorts with serious consequences. The Mayas and other past cultures did the same thing. Many think human beings are smart enough to invent new technologies to save themselves. Problem is that the new technologies may not be the real reason that we advance. One thing is certain, and the experts will tell us, we won’t live the same way. Attitudes, lifestyles and values will need to shift along with the incorporation of the new technologies. This philosophical finish to the series takes us on a parallel hypothesis, recognizing the value of the new technologies, but searching deeper into the psychological changes society must undergo to make it beyond Black Gold.
