The sense of purpose just discussed makes commitment and conviction possible -- and when properly directed by love, work and synergistic considerations, promote the ability of the individual to contribute to the system. In some ways, purpose is an aspect of identity -- perhaps the most important one. Fusing mature sense of purpose with the aspects of identity previously discussed, and combining these with the individual strengths and system competencies, we have created a human who will be effective in accommodating to the demands of the future, and yet mastering enough of that future to direct the world toward the world described in Article 26.2 of the Declaration of Human Rights, quoted at the beginning of chapter one.
