Mark Pardini was born in Johannesburg where, as a boy, he showed a great interest in the natural world and developed an admiration for the magnificent creatures of the African Wilderness.His background includes a science degree, 10 years of experience in engineering design and applied mathematical modelling, a Masters qualification in Business Administration and 24 years of practice in business management. He now resides in Sydney Australia.'Man's Horizons' is the result of seven years of research, the focus of which was to evaluate the global forces impacting the modern world. This specialisation provided the foundation of information needed to develop the book's hypothesis and hence propose Humankind's probable destiny.
In Volume III, two future scenarios are considered. Firstly, we proceed along our current path, the Old Road, ignoring Man’s impact on the Earth and exposing future generations to a host of severe and possibly insoluble problems. In the second scenario, sapient anthropoids undertake global design and by way of the New Road, strive to reach an idealised human state, known as Super-Civilisation.
Volume II is an insight into the 7,000 year rise and fall of clans, kingdoms, nations and empires in their struggle to control the populace and take their land. The focus is on the great leaders who built Egypt, China, Persia, Greece and Rome, all of whom orchestrated human destiny. It was this ever-changing yet unceasing quest for global domination that polarised the nations of the modern world.
The three volumes of ‘Man’s Horizons present information for a broad-based foundation of knowledge that every 21st century person should possess. The books provide a chronological perspective of the life of the universe and Man’s place in it is reviewed with regard to the compatibility of our civilised system with a biological planet.
