I am research and writing about the future at the moment. (The special FREE offer still stands if you are interested - check out the website).
One chapter deals with the shape of trends. (You will have to read the whole thing to understand.) Along the way I stumbled on this video. Whether you consider the universe to be a web of vibrating strings in 10 dimensions or whether you have a more spiritual perspective does not matter - this video will resonate. ENJOY!
