Evolution of Consciousness
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
It’s fairly clear that the old ways are rapidly failing as we are confronted with the threat of global climate change, mass extinction of species, gross overpopulation and unstable global political relations.
It would appear our consciousness desperately needs to evolve beyond our current beliefs and tactics quickly if we are to survive as a species.
Yet evolution is a very complicated business. It requires totally rethinking our entire concept of what is and is not possible as, quite frankly, from the current perspective we are already out of time.
We have created, and continue to propagate, a very mono-dimensional reality – one based on false history, and group fear of a grim future.
Dirac’s Equation, which is mathematically consistent, demonstrates that causality is located equal parts past and future, with the waves propagating toward the present. This multidimensional concept has some very interesting implications.
It would imply that our reality originates from equal parts past and future and manifests in the present.
How does the widespread practice of history being rewritten by the winner of the latest war, combined with the group victim mentality that the future is something set in stone, impact our present experience?
Can we actually transform our world by embracing a more multidimensional concept of reality?
Our guest this hour, Sean Kelly, Ph.D., is professor of Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). He is the author of “Coming Home: The Birth and Transformation of the Planetary Era,” co-editor of “The Variety of Integral Ecologies: Nature, Culture, and Knowledge in the Planetary Era,” and co-translator of Edgar Morin’s “Homeland Earth: A manifesto for the New Millennium.” Sean’s teaching and research are inspired by the conviction that many of us are being called to participate actively in the awakening of Gaia, our planet-home, guided by the twin virtues of wisdom and compassion, in service of the entire Earth community.
