- Beyond mortality: a world that is, likewise, free from the threat of chronic diseases or other age-related disabilities
- Beyond scarcity: a world without destructive competition for resources
- Beyond cruelty: a world in which we are kinder and more compassionate to ourselves, to each other, and to the environment in which we live.
