This article is an edited version of the author's keynote presentation at the Strategic Leadership Forum's 1999 Conference. He discusses the new dynamics of change, or the way change changes; his vision of how thinking will be organized in the future; and the new rules for succeeding in a world of chaos. Using examples from historical events, he proposes that civilization is again entering a time of supreme discontinuity. Living successfully in this time of absolute change requires a kind of cultural schizophrenia in which one virtually lives in two worlds at the same time without feeling any inconsistency.
