The article focuses on the paradigm shift taking pace in all realms of contemporary society. If the earlier generations were concerned with the origin of species , the present is concerned in an unprecedented way with the extinction of species, and above all, with the threat of extinction that faces the human species. As this paradigm shift takes place in the realms of politics and activist science, another change looms in the realm of the imagination and, perhaps also, in the practice of religion.
