A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe; a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and his feelings as something separate from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.
– Albert Einstein
In recent decades we’ve experienced the rise of capitalism and consumerism as a leading global ideology, a breakdown in religious understanding, an increasing economic gap within societies, a breakdown in historic institutions, the global degradation of the earth’s natural resources, an increase of frequency in seismic climate events, and a loss of eldership and the sharing of generational wisdom.
I believe that the most profound problems that we (humanity) face today, the war and conflict between nation-states, our tribal allegiance to political identities, the despair and suffering felt by so many, and the exploitation of the earth and her resources, all derive from a flawed view of the nature and purpose of humanity.
What is the nature of humanity and what is our purpose in the universe? How can human morality and ethics be informed by the theory of universal consciousness? Have we reached a new ecological tipping point?
Join me as I seek to answer these questions and many others.
