Welcome to Future Humans for growing our consciousness and capacities based on the books of our Future Humans Trilogy. Here we meet in community for the co-creation of a thriving and caring world. One in which children are happy, our elders are honoured, and our planet is honoured as a Mother of Life. A world in which humanity has learned to act as a loving partner of the Earth. The Future Humans initiatives form part of EARTHwise, in collaboration with The Renaissance Project.
We've co-authored the Future Humans Trilogy to support humanity during this critical time with essential perspectives, keys, tools, visions, codes, and practices. The trilogy is based on radical new understandings from the intersections of a new paradigm in science, spirituality, indigenous wisdom, technology, systems design, entrepreneurship, economics, politics, and social innovation. Based on a unifying understanding of the nature of reality and the role off consciousness. Through our courses and publications we aim to bring these essential insights to the mainstream and make it applied.
Join us the Future Humans Community to discover how you can co-create thrivable worlds and futures with the wisdom of living systems and by actualizing your future human potential.
To our Future!

Pilgrims of the Future
The Future Humans journey belongs to all of us. This emerging new era has long been foretold by the mystics, philosophers, and poets of our time, including the French theologian and philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin who called himself a “pilgrim of the future.” We, too, consider ourselves to be “pilgrims of the future,” and the Universe has a way of introducing such pilgrims to one another in the most unusual ways.
In the case of Jean, it happened when she was fourteen years old. After receiving news that terribly upset her, she was running to Central Park in New York City to clear her head when she literally ran into Teilhard de Chardin and almost knocked the wind out of him. Thankfully, he took it all with great humor as she helped him to his feet. About a week later, while walking down Park Avenue with her fox terrier, Champ, she met the old gentleman again. Thus began their friendship over a period of three years. It was only after his passing that she learned that “Mr. Tayer,” (as she had called him), was the famous Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Although this book is not about their meetings, Teilhard is part of this book in the seed he planted 70 years ago, and in particular, through the following conversation.
During one of their weekly walks in the park, Teilhard suddenly fell to his knees, overcome with wonder.
“Jeanne, look at the caterpillar. Ahhhh! How beautiful it is, this little green being with its wonderful, funny, little feet. Exquisite! Little furry body, little green feet on the road to metamorphosis. Jeanne, can you feel yourself to be a caterpillar?” Teilhard exclaimed.
“Ohhh, yes!” Jean replied, as a pimply-faced teenager.
“Well, then think of your own metamorphosis. What will you be when you have become a butterfly, un papillon, eh? What is the butterfly of Jeanne?” Teilhard smiled.
“I’ll travel around the world and will help people,” Jean replied passionately.
The following serves to illustrate how we each carry the seeds for our own metamorphosis inside us. Then, when we least expect it, a stranger, a bump on the road, or some unexpected event, becomes the catalyst, after which, time has a way of bringing us full circle and returns us to how it all began. There, as we return to the beginning, we receive the seeds for a new beginning.
Here is how things came full circle for us. In May 2020, Anneloes proposed to Jean that they work with the butterfly metamorphosis as the core theme for their trilogy. At that time, she had no idea of the conversation that had transpired between Jean and Teilhard.
Twelve months later, while writing the introduction for their first book, Anneloes became aware of a strong and loving presence in her living room, combined with a persistent nudge for her to find out what Teilhard had actually said to Jean during some of their talks. As she learned about their caterpillar moment, she was delighted to discover how the seed for their trilogy had been planted all those years ago by Teilhard’s questions! Future humans are people like you, us, and many others, who are embracing our own metamorphosis to explore the question: What is the butterfly of me?
The anticipated potentials of a more enlightened future are not merely imaginal, nor is the imaginal merely imaginative, or just happening in our minds. These future potentials are actual potentials in Consciousness; Cosmic information that exists in a particular state, which we can access and activate when we discover the Cosmic Keys and Architect Tools for doing so. The Future Humans journey is a mythic journey for living a mythic life.
