Wild Card's description 
Massive disengagement of people from established religions, and movement to spiritual expressions outside religion. Within organized and established religions and religious groups, massive movement away from orthodox, literal, and fundamentalist beliefs and practices toward the spiritual tendencies within them. This trend will include spiritual attitudes to issues such as environment protection and climate change, animal rights, gay liberation, moral values etc. This is a worldwide movement that searches for a new world view based on new spirituality: a new version of the Renaissance. It means a reorientation of how humans see the world: a new holistic view of nature and the universe.
