There is a remarkable phenomenon emerging around the world. It's a revolution. Arising spontaneously it seems to strike to the core of people. It questions and explores who we are and how we are. It is becoming the subject of many people's lives and I find this most striking amongst "my generation" - the world's twenty-somethings - Generation Next, the slackers, the ravers, the netheads and more. Even amongst those young people who look so reassuringly "normal" to their parents, there are stirrings of something extraordinary. A fundamental questioning of the status quo that speaks to the very essence of how we see the world and our place in it, as peoples and individuals.
