Our Positive Future and How to Get There From Here

Monday, October 27th, 2008

The signs are everywhere. The future isn’t what it used to be. On one side, we have religionists talking about “end times.”  On the other, we have scientists deeply concerned about environmental destruction, and the 6th great extinction. Others look to the Mayan prophecies and 2012 as a time of transformational change. Regardless of perspective, there seems to be a common understanding that we humans as a species are facing extraordinary challenges, and the current ways of thinking and organizing our affairs no longer work.

That brings us to Spontaneous Evolution. Based on new discoveries in cellular biology, and informed by the “new edge” sciences of fractal mathematics and quantum physics, this 5 CD set featuring cellular biologist Bruce Lipton (The Biology of Belief) and political philosopher and “uncommontator” Steve Bhaerman offers a new and inspiring story for the future of humanity on this planet.

A Half-Awake Species
Symbolic language led to another significant step in human intelligence. We used language not only to communicate with each other, but also within our own minds, i.e. verbal thinking. With this power we could reflect upon our experiences and plan our future. In addition, we could reflect upon the fact that we were aware. We became conscious of consciousness itself. We began to wake up to our own inner worlds.

At present however, we are only half-awake to who and what we really are. Becoming aware of our own selves brought with it a sense of an individual “I” observing the world and initiating our actions. But just what is this self? It seems so obvious that it is there, but, as many have discovered, it is hard to define it or pin it down.

Scientific Evidence of a Living Consciousness Universe

mind-matter.jpg I believe that the most far-reaching trend of our times is an emerging shift in our shared view of the universe – from thinking of it as dead to experiencing it as alive. In regarding the universe as alive and ourselves as continuously sustained within that aliveness, we see that we are intimately related to everything that exists.

This insight – that we are cousins to everything that exists in a living, continuously regenerated universe – represents a new way of looking at and relating to the world, and overcomes the profound separation that has marked our lives. From the combined wisdom of science and spirituality is emerging an understanding that could provide the perceptual foundation for the diverse people of the world to come together in the shared enterprise of building a sustainable and meaningful future.

Particles And Possibilities – A Brief Look at Quantum Reality

Monday, May 5th, 2008

In Newton’s mechanical view of the cosmos, the universe is thought of in terms of particles whose behavior can be known and predicted at any moment in time. It’s like balls on a pool table: If we have the information that describes the force of a ball as it strikes another (speed, angle, and so on), then we should be able to predict where and how the one that has been struck will travel. And if it should hit other balls in its journey, we’ll know where and how fast they’re traveling as well. The key here is that the mechanical view of the universe sees the smallest units of the stuff our world is made of as things.
