Arie de Geus liked this expression that began in the past and projected into the future: “Experiencing the future”. When he spoke French he distinguished potential Futures from What was to Come (l’Avenir).
This little memorial is devoted to everything Arie de Geus had lived and presaged to enable us to live in the future.

Taking care of community during COVID. An example: In IDAHO, a living hospital community where staff care for their community and the community cares for them
The key role of socioperceptive people in transforming organisations and society
Alain de Vulpian and Tonnie van der Zouwen
Key words: Socioperception, empathy, anticipation, social fabric, economy of meaning, self-organisation, emotions, self-awareness, stakeholders
“De Vulpian’s book offers more than just an alert. It aims to help ordinary people be more or less clairvoyant, to strengthen their intuitions and to innovate. At the bifurcation point, by paying attention to the weak signals, we can “take care of metamorphosis”. Peter Senge, MIT
“The right book at the right time”. Göran Carstedt, former head Volvo, IKEA
“The Shift from Capitalism to a Knowledge Society: in business, Company Law in most countries still describes the 19th century position of the business corporation-as-a-machine….that Law allocates to the shareholder the ultimate and supreme power…until that law is changed, it puts management between the rock of emancipated people liberated from earlier social and moral constraints and the hard place of shareholder power, exercised by financial institutions with short-term financial goals… Perhaps we need a French revolution in the business world to prevent a confrontation between emancipated people and business”
