"Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?"
Paul Gauguin, 1898

Looking back from today's vantage point, in what way older generations of today could say whether their own images of the future have succeeded or failed to materialize.
Realizing that older generations' future has never come, what the younger among the panelists could say of their future, the future they would consciously try to bring about in spite of the anticipated current of the natural environmental and historic force.
All the panelists would discuss some specific human achievements and endeavors that would contribute to building a more desirable and viable human world, through artistic pursuit, scientific discoveries, and philosophical confidence.
