(1) It gave me an unique opportunity to perceive the World and its history from totally different perspective - free form any bias – religious, cultural, historical, emotional, etc.
(2) I think that it should be an obligatory part of educational curriculum in order to prepare youths to live in the VUCA (V-volatile, U-uncertain, C-complex, A-ambiguous)
(3) These will let them:
a. find a meaning in their lives in order to avoid depression, aggression and/or an addiction (as per Victor Frankl).
b. "Rather than prepare a man to the position to be taken, to teach him to create for itself a sphere of action, socially fruitful, and corresponding to its individuality…”
Thanks to the Big History Team !

A great to finish this specialisation. It's different from everything I've studied on Coursera. Big History connects knowledge across disciplines and do it brillantly. This course is about doing a briefing paper based on your first 3 courses.
