Education can and will change the world. Interdisciplinarity and narrative literacy are key to imagining and developing a more equal and sustainable society.
We believe life-long education is needed for all.
Our dreams and stories may contain implicit aspects of our lives even without our awareness. In fact, storytelling may be a primary way in which we can linguistically communicate to others—as well as to ourselves—the sometimes hidden contents of our implicitly remembering minds. Stories make available perspectives on the emotional themes of our implicit memory that may otherwise be consciously unavailable to us. This may be one reason why journal writing and intimate communication with others, which are so often narrative processes, have such powerful organizing effects on the mind: They allow us to modulate our emotions and make sense of the world.
Future does not necessarily exist in the real world, however it does exist in peoples’ minds as passive and active (motivational) futures. Because it has been shown that future is a constitutive part of our constructing our living, it is a real world influencing force.
