As my handle shows, I am an alien from space (what you call the Alfa Centauri System).
I am on assignment to observe Earth and humanity as its dominant species.
I need to report to the Galactic Council on the status of your species and its chances of survival beyond the next few decades.
This Forum seems to have a large number of intelligent and responsible participants, discussing serious issues in a thoughtful way.
I am asking for advice on what threads to study in depth to form an opinion about fundamental principles guiding your species and the main forces acting for and against your survival.
I will patiently await your advice and am looking forward to studying the threads you recommend.
Thank you all, live long and prosper!
