General comment
Most of the format in the latter parts of the chapter (font, size, bold) were not in the original. They were somehow changed during inputting a Google xxx.docx document into QuickDoc.

Regarding item 9
I just learned of a recent report of research of those lacking visual imagery. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/23/science/...eye-blind.html?_r=2 I have been in email contact with the authors and they have provided me with a digital copy of their journal article. Their article attests to the strange fact that research professionals have avoided this important individual difference and major set of variables for the cognitive diversity of humankind. I hope that the researchers will continue their studies, and may involve me.

Regarding item 4
The "E word" has been noted, in analogy to the taboo for the "N word".

"Crisis-of-Crises" is a term introduced by John R. Platt in his SCIENCE article of 1969: What We Must Do, http://home.comcast.net/~larryvictor/NUCOM/WhatWeMustDo_Platt.pdf This article triggered me on my long path leading to this book chapter. I was John's teaching assistant when a graduate student in physics at the University of Chicago, where he influenced me in many dimensions. The SCIENCE article is mostly about our need of adequate social technology.

I responded in 1970 with a paper: The Technology of Non-Violent Revolution during the student takeover of the University of Minnesota in response to the Kent State Experimental killing of American students by American Military and the escalation of the Vietnam War into Cambodia. http://home.comcast.net/~larryvictor/NUCOM...lent_revolution.htm I was again a graduate student working on my 2nd PhD. This paper was used in a few courses in the Peace College, which was operational during the student occupation of the student union - and the acceptance by the UofM administration for the Peace College.
