Although globalization promotes homogenization, what we are observing is an intricate and bewildering, worldwide chaos of plans and values. Could some part of history be identified as a prologue to our epoch and, for that reason, used as a guide in our search for ways and means of dealing with that storm of values and plans? I suggest that there can be no prologue to the tensions and problems of globalizing humanity because no prior epoch possessed the promises and threats of our epoch, in the dimensions and intensities we observe them. This essay suggests that the history of humankind as a single social entity—with its unique problems is just beginning. A global community of instant everywhere is only now being constructed. This essay visits that construction process. It recommends that the cries of globalization be explored with the help of the integrated, interdisciplinary study of time for the purpose of helping us appreciate the nature and details of the global changes.
