With great gratitude I found myself with like-minded scientists and thought leaders at this year’s Science and Nonduality Conference (SAND) where a common ground was sought between neuroscientists, physicists and the consciousness community. This year’s theme was “Entanglement” and recognition that “when science drills down into the core of even the most solid-looking object, separateness dissolves, and all that remains are relationships extending throughout and possibly beyond, space and time.”

What is so interesting about SAND is the confluence of the nondualists who simply attribute EVERYTHING to consciousness without a need for science, and those among us whose minds still seek “answers” and for whom a scientific “explanation” makes things land more deeply.

What is also so extraordinary about this conference is the ability to exchange ideas with so  many different scientific and nondual thinkers (the latter being a necessary contradiction) in a nourishing environment.

A Balance Of Informed Perspectives

I immediately found myself “entangled” with Wolfgang Baer, another attendee who teaches at the graduate level in Monterey and with a PhD in physics from Berkeley who believes he has discovered an energetic basis for consciousness in the binding energy of minute particles. From there I immediately found myself in an amazing panel discussion moderated by Cassandra Vieten, PhD, President and CEO of IONS, the Institute of Noetic Sciences. She first delivered an interesting discourse on the cycle of consciousness changing theories – from being seen as heretical and subversive to eventually either replacing or becoming absorbed into the conventional thought and mainstream of the times.

Neil Theise a researcher in stem cells described how, “at cellular this self doesn’t exist”– suggesting that as neuroscientists have suggested it is a construction of complex neural networks. Dr. Rudi Tanzi, a noted medical researcher and leader of the Alzheimer’s Genome Project described how local consciousness is based on memory, so that his patients will often describe Alzheimer’s as “I’ve lost my self, requires a continuity of Time.” While great strides have been made in his research, Dr. Tanzi says that it is still a mystery how memories are encoded in proteins and neural networks; in other words, again, what constitutes the real “Self.”

Menas Kafalos, Professor of Computational Physics and Director of Excellence at Chapman University –said that conventional science has it backwards in many respects –that “without events and objects you don’t have space or time” and of course events are an interpretation or manifestation of consciousness. Julia Mossbridge from Northwestern University is studying how time works in perception – and the language that is integral to our experience of “before and after.”  She wonders where insights come from and suggests a “handshake” or “gentle relationship between the conscious and unconscious.”

Insightful Presentations by Renowned Teachers

Bentinho Massaro in his talk, “Each Part contains All of Existence – Living in Fullness” echoed Jed McKenna’s work with an equally clear presentation consciousness as All and Everything arising through or within Consciousness. McKenna calls it “C-REX,” Bentinho uses the analogy of whatever is experienced appearing in some ways as pixels on a TV on the screen of our consciousness. But of course, who is this “our?” Since nothing is left out, Bentinho asserts that this should provide a sense of security or safety –“there is no need to be careful” (because Consciousness is the only true “cause.”

I also attended a discussion between the legendary Adyashanti and Hameed Ali (A. H. Almaas), Founder of the Diamond Approach moderated by Zaya Benazzo, one of the founders and leaders of SAND on “Living Realization.” This was a recurring theme among many speakers and attendees:  reconciling the tangible experience of consciousness with a theoretical “understanding.”

Adya talked about the amazingly paradoxical aspect of “awakening” echoing Dr. Tanzi’s description of Alzheimer’s in that it is not the “I” that awakens. He said that at first it is just a door that opens but that generally one quickly reverts to “normal” life—and one often struggles with trying to recapture the feeling of awakening for the “self.” How to sustain these moments of recognition? Adya said that it requires “fierce amounts of humility”– to be ruthlessly honest with oneself.

The question becomes why does one do “untrue” things? This is the essence of the paradox, because according to Adya, the Ego can hide within its perception or interpretation of “clarity.” He described awakening as the movement of spirit not so much outward, but rather inward to expose the inevitable lies that the Ego tells “itself.”

For Almaas, who exemplifies the approach of many in SAND by having first studied physics and relativity theory before moving to a psychological inquiry due to a recognition that the two fields are intimately connected, he approached the question of awakening, and who does and who doesn’t, with the statement that “reality can awaken or not.” There is room for everything — total Being means ALL – even unconsciousness. When asked about his own experience he replied, “realization is doing well but my body not so much.”  For Almaas all awakening seems to relate to actual experience and is no longer theoretical; he seems to make little distinction between Realization and Actualization.

Rupert Spira seems to be effortlessly making it up as he goes along but his calm and deeply organized clarity shone through in a wonderful talk on “The Disentanglement of the Self.” He described consciousness as self-illuminating and (self-knowing) like the Sun – in that it needs nothing “else.” In typical Rupert Spira fashion he asked the simple question –“could consciousness ever come in contact with anything other than itself?”

There is no I beyond knowing itself. He echoed Cassandra Vieten’s presentation in pointing to Copernicus and saying that we are in a similar revolution in which we are outgrowing the separatism of conventional science to understand the nature of knowing – and discovering a “knowledge that is not known by something other than itself.” He described suffering as “a call from happiness itself” and suggested, again, as an experiential path to “live like everything is god’s infinite being.”

Dr. Jay Kumar invoked the separate but confluent teachings of masters and scientists in his talk on “Cognitive Entanglement:  From the Buddha to Bohr”. He amplified the theme of a practical way to eliminate suffering as a key to the teaching of Buddha, and Jay actually teaches a course on Happiness at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

The Buddha’s three practical principles are:

  • Nothing can be taken in isolation
  • All is impermanent
  • Suffering is dissatisfaction

To me this last point especially echoes the gnostic notion of “sin” which is simply resistance to what is. Jay went on to describe the mathematics of Buddhism equating emptiness to zero, but at the same time for the Buddhist (who knew of the concept of zero), zero was infinity. So that the void and the infinite are complementary. He held up an empty sheet of paper that he said was both blank, and also contained “the potential for the infinite” within itself. For the Buddhist it is also like a balloon which expands in emptiness – it is “full of emptiness.”

These notions resonate powerfully with quantum physics where the complement of the particle and the wave comprise a wholeness that is beyond human comprehension without accounting for an observer. Everything is participatory –nothing is “outside” and the next level of awakening or release of suffering will be on a wider scale, as Jay said that “the next Buddha will be community.”

On The Conference Floor

There were also many sponsors and interesting vendors at SAND. I was intrigued by the True Mirror (“Discover Your True Reflection”) created and exhibited by John Walter. For John, there was an epiphany when he noticed that because of the reversal of left and right in a mirror reflection, the image is “false” so that he created a parallel mirror system which reverses the reversal, showing the “true self.”  The experience of seeing this image is remarkable –one’s smile and facial expressions are “real” and not forced.

What Walter saw was recognition – the person in the mirror looked and felt right, and matched his sense of what others were seeing. In contrast, the flat, traditional mirror felt false and conveyed a host of inner thoughts that were in direct contrast to the way he was feeling. In other words, his real self was present in the true image.

Hard boiled, uncompromising nondual teacher Peter Francis Dziuban presented “The Seeking Stops Here” emphasizing an unrelenting experiential entanglement” that deconstructs seeing oneself as “a part.” For Peter, alive awareness has no border –he asks:  “Can thinking make now not be alive?” Despite one’s habit of talk, talk, talk one is never not entangled and a part of Life. And yet, from this perspective, one’s engagement with Life continues nonstop – one still engages in conversation, at home and in the office – hearing oneself say “hi boss” and so on.

An Appearance By Former Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell

A highlight for me was the appearance of former astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell via Skype, going full circle in a way as the founder of IONS. Dr. Mitchell compared the “big picture” effect of seeing Earth from space to Samadhi –as a more “complete” perspective shared among humanity  than its terrestrial limitations. I was able to ask a question about Dr. Mitchell’s recent statements about extra-terrestrial contacts and it turned out that he had actually grown up in Roswell.

While Dr. Mitchell acknowledged that he had no personal direct experience of contact, he said that through his connections at the Pentagon, NASA and elsewhere it is known to him that we have been visited, are being visited and will continue to be visited, and he confirmed that UFOs were seen near missile silos during the cold war, rendered them inoperative and in that capacity at least were helping to preserve mankind.

Following Dr. Mitchell’s theories, Russell Targ a longtime exponent and expert in remote viewing at SRI revealed that his initial funding came as a result of experiments with psychics that were so successful that they attracted the interest of the CIA. He said that Werner von Braun was interested in his work because he himself had had a psychic grandmother, and that anyone might increase their capacity for ESP with a consistent practice of a quiet mind.

Other Standout Perspectives

Peter Russell gave a wonderfully scientific overview of the nondual perspective by reinforcing that “all we know is inferred from experience” and “all knowing takes place in consciousness.” Again there is no “green” out there in a physical world, the concept of green is an overlay of the mind. Only brain processes create an experience of “green.”

Amazingly Peter reminded the audience that it was Newton who first said that all color is a product of the mind. Experience is like a “map” of the world – of necessity an abstraction that helps our navigation of reality but is not reality by any means. From this perspective we can now see that “there is just information” or conceptual mind product –our senses respond to and create corresponding patterns expressed as forms in the mind of consciousness.

This makes consciousness primary. What is conscious –is a dog conscious –where do we draw the line, Peter asked. If dogs aren’t conscious then why do we use anesthesia at the vet? Consciousness is more fundamental than matter, space or time. Consciousness is not part of the map—the map is consciousness

The final speaker at SAND was nondual teacher Francis Lucille who engaged in a dialog with the audience identifying the mind as the source of all negative emotions. With respect to suffering Francis compared his practice to conventional therapy which he says looks at only the symptoms or the “small picture.”  He says you can let the Big Picture take care of the small pictures. He used the example of someone who has an olive tree that keeps dropping olives onto his lawn which he finds annoying. He can either address each individual olive by picking it up each year when the tree sheds its fruit, or in one swoop he can cut down the tree –the source of all of his suffering.

He compared this to shedding beliefs that are erroneous at their core—which are ALL beliefs—because only experience is real. “Peace is not a belief.  It’s a home we have never left.” In addressing science he said that at the top is physics and physicists “know they don’t know” — then down the “food chain” are the chemists and biologists, and they have more and more beliefs which take them further and further from truth (of not kowing).

In terms of helping the planet, Francis said that all such efforts begin with oneself.  Similarly with therapy he suggested one find an enlightened guide because, after all, “would you go to a depressed therapist?”

This final dialog was followed by a very emotional closing ceremony in which Maurizio Benazzo and his wife and partner Zaya recalled the germ of their idea which has now grown into this amazing conference, and then called up each member of their team to hug them and show their appreciation. The audience joined in the celebration and it had the feeling of a growing heartfelt tribe of conscious beings –a family in the truest sense of the world. I am privileged to have been part of it for a second year.

Scientists Propose That We Can Travel Faster Than The Speed of Light

CE Staff Writer 5 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new paper suggest travel faster than the speed of light might be possible given the creation of a new way of looking at propelling a vehicle.

  • Reflect On:

    When considering the advancement of life changing technology, does our current economic model speed up or suppress the collaboration, creation and advancement of ideas?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

In Star Trek Gene Roddenberry imagined it possible to set a ship into ‘warp drive’ and travel at speeds 6000+ times the speed of light, moving from one galaxy to a distant one very quickly. Imagine having that type of technology here on earth?! It has been said before that if we can think it, we can create it. Well, maybe that’s sometimes true.

What Happened:

The question of whether travel faster than the speed of light is possible was again approached in a new research paper written by an American physicist Erik Lentz. In the paper Lentz proposed a new theory for how faster-than-light travel could be possible. Given their models, Lentz and his team feel that travel to distant stars and planets could be possible in the near future, perhaps with proper research and development they could have something working in as little as 10 years.

The question of whether this is possible does not challenge our current understanding of physics that Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity sets forth that it is not possible to travel faster than light.

Instead of focusing on our current understanding of matter, Lentz’s new paper puts greater importance on a possible engineering solution as opposed to the theoretical physics. The new paper was published in Classical and Quantum Gravity.

The paper proposes a plan to travel faster than light by creating a series of ‘solitons’ to provide the basis for propulsion. A soliton is a compact wave that keeps its speed and shape while moving with little loss of energy.

Interestingly, this technology would allow travel at ANY speed. This brings me back to an article I wrote yesterday discussing the incoming reality within collective consciousness that UFOs and Extraterrestrials are real. In that article I state that the question of ‘how are they getting here’ is of importance as it could give humanity access to technology that would completely change the way we live on this planet.

 [The method] “uses the very structure of space and time arranged in a soliton to provide a solution to faster-than-light travel,” From the press release.

Imagine this, the nearest star beyond our solar system is called Proxima Centauri. We know it to be about 4.25 light years away. (A light year is the distance it takes light to travel in one year.)

Lentz stated that using our current rocket fuel methods fo travel, it would take about 50,000 to 70,000 years to reach Proxima Centauri. If we were to upgrade to nuclear propulsion technology, it would take about 100 years. But if we employed a light speed warp drive, it would take only four years and three months.

This would mean that the average person would be able to travel to distant interstellar planets and complete the trip in a current human lifetime. Think of the vacations!

According to Lentz there are some barriers to making this all work, but they aren’t impossible to surpass. For the tech to work, it would require lowering the energy needed down to the level of modern nuclear power reactors. That is if we don’t take into consideration energy technologies that are currently suppressed. Lentz also stated that what would be needed is a  way to develop and speed up the solitons (waves.)

“This work has moved the problem of faster-than-light travel one step away from theoretical research in fundamental physics and closer to engineering,”

Why Its Matters:

Humans are curious beings who seem to gain a great deal from expanding our curiosity beyond everyday plights of a system and way of life that doesn’t necessarily inspire the deepest use of our creativity. Perhaps a knowing that we can indeed go elsewhere without primitive technology would shift the way we see our role on this earth and how we choose to fight over what we believe are limited resources.

Then again, perhaps if humans carry their current story of separation and competition to other worlds, we’ll produce the same mess there. I guess the question is, would the possibility of being able to leave this earth and go almost anywhere change the underlying nature of how we choose to set up our cultural beliefs and narratives of what it means to be human?

It’s my feeling that humanity does not lack the solutions to live in a thriving world, we lack the worldview and state of being. Both of which we could change with a little effort.

The Takeaway:

When I hear research like this I am fascinated. Then again I also sometimes wonder if all scientists around the world saw the technology I have seen first hand, that completely changes the way we perceive energy generation today, would the way we look at creating technology that requires energy change entirely? Yes, of course it would.

In my mind and heart I see a world of true collaboration and curiosity. One where we aren’t competing to see who’s the greatest scientist with the best copy written tech, but a world where we transparently share what is out there to advance the entire human race. No powerful interests suppressing technology because it’s too threatening to an economy, but instead true open advancement where we can solve problems incredibly fast.

Can you imagine this world?

What Causes Déjà Vu? The Neuroscience Behind The Memory Illusion

Avatar

Published

CE Staff Writer 5 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Current explanations from the field of neuroscience suggest that déjà vu occurs when the brain is slightly fatigued and working to 'fact check' a memory. We experience this as being odd because we become aware of the process.

  • Reflect On:

    Might we explore a different explanation for déjà vu if we were looking at it from the standpoint of time being non linear and perhaps opening up to the idea of a collective consciousness?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

They say about 60% of people experience déjà vu during their life, right off the bat that hit me as something I didn’t expect as I feel like almost everyone I know has had it at one time or another. Déjà vu, (‘already seen’ to the French) is the feeling that you are re-living something that has happened before. In the movie The Matrix, where déjà vu is perhaps most thought of in pop culture, Neo experiences a cat going by a doorway twice in a matter of seconds. Same cat, same moves, same everything.

In the film, this moment is presented as a ‘glitch in the matrix,’ however, in real life, déjà vu doesn’t often happen like what is seen in The Matrix, it instead feels as though you can’t recall when the ‘other memory’ happened, more so that what you are experiencing right now has already happened at some time.

Let’s dive into what some believe neuroscience is offering as an explanation.

What Happened:

According to experts like Dr Akira O’Connor, who is a senior psychology lecturer at the University of St Andrews, déjà vu is not only a feeling of familiarity, but also the metacognitive recognition that these feelings are misplaced. In simple terms:

“Déjà vu is basically a conflict between the sensation of familiarity and the awareness that the familiarity is incorrect. And it’s the awareness that you’re being tricked that makes déjà vu so unique compared to other memory events.”

Neuroscientists have determined that this memory illusion occurs when the frontal regions of the brain are attempting to correct an inaccurate memory.

“For the vast majority of people, experiencing déjà vu is probably a good thing. It’s a sign that the fact-checking brain regions are working well, preventing you from misremembering events. In a healthy person, such misremembering is going to happen every day. This is to be expected because your memory involves millions and billions of neurones. It’s very messy.”

While there isn’t a completely agreed upon explanation for what happens in the brain when déjà vu occurs, most models suggest that déjà vu occurs when areas of the brain (such as the temporal lobe) feed the mind’s frontal regions signals that a past experience is repeating itself. The frontal decision making parts of the brain then checks to see if the memory is actually true or possible, perhaps saying something to the effect “have I been here before?”

“If you have actually been in that place before, you may try harder to retrieve more memories. If not, a déjà vu realization can occur.”

It’s typically believed that we are more susceptible to déjà vu when the mind is a bit more fatigued and not as quick to discern that validity of our current moment.

Why It Matters:

What fascinated me about this in particular is two things: I’ve long felt that it’s quite possible that memories may actually be non local, i.e. they exist outside the brain not in the brain, and that perhaps the brain tunes into those memories that are somewhere around us. Or maybe we could say that some memory may exist in the brain, while others are part of some sort of collective field.

The second fascinating part for me is that I wonder if déjà vu has something to do with emerging science that tells us time is not linear. Perhaps when we take a classic scientific model that states all time is linear and all experience is linear, we limit our explanation of what déjà vu might be to something that fits that paradigm. What if the brain is tuning into something relating to quantum potentials that always exist, and that perhaps something different is happening with déjà vu? I’m not sure yet, however this is where déjà vu intrigues me the most.

Of course, the end result of exploring a question like this invites us to shift our worldview around the nature of reality, time and experience. Something that might be uncomfortable for some but I feel post material science is inviting us to do.

The Takeaway:

As with anything that is happening in our lives right now it seems, we are culturally in a time where a long avoided shift in our scientific paradigm is creating a lack of meaningful explanations for many things that happen in life. Is déjà vu one of those things that doesn’t have a good explanation in our current scientific paradigm? The jury might still be out on that, but for me, the current explanation presented in this piece did not quite ‘do it for me’ and my inquisitive mind and gut feeling pushes me to explore these questions through the emerging paradigm of non material science.

These Anti-Solar Panels Don’t Require Daylight To Generate Power

Avatar

CE Staff Writer 7 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new approach to solar panels attempts to generate energy during the night, when there is no sunlight to turn into energy. This new invention could make solar a more efficient and reliable option for energy generation.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we being made aware of all energy technologies that truly exist out there? Are our ideas of what energy technologies we could create and bring to market limited on the belief that they must fit inside our existing economic structures?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

Energy is one of the most important elements to any functioning society, and since our modern era of living uses so much power, the industry is always looking to evolve towards newer and more efficient solutions. Furthermore, given the environmental damage that often comes with many of our modern energy generation practices, people have been thinking outside the box to come up with ideas that are harmonious with mother nature.

Solar panel technology has been around for decades, but there are a few main issues with it. First off, you often need sunlight for it to produce enough on demand and stored energy for daily life. There are many areas in the world where that can be an issue in certain seasons. Secondly, during the night energy can’t be gathered so you’re always dealing with a limited time period where you can generate power for the moment or future use. This prompted inventors to imagine a new “anti-solar panel” that is designed to work both during the day and at night.

Typical solar panels work by gathering visible light from the sun and converting it to usable electricity. This energy can be used as it’s created, or it can be stored into battery cells to be used at a later time. That is to say, it might be a sunny day, you and your family are at work so little power is needed at home. When you return home and you need power,  batteries hooked up to your solar panel had been storing the energy collected from the sun during the day, so it’s ready for you to use once you need it even if the sun isn’t out.

No sun for a couple days while your family is at home for the weekend? Well, you can start to see the issues with solar, you might run out of power if you aren’t connected to a standard city power grid as backup.

But now a team at UC Davis is hoping to develop a new strategy relying on having panels that can also generate electricity at night from heat emitted by a device in the infrared spectrum that is used to generate power.

Jeremy Munday, a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and who leads the research team:

“In order to produce electrical power after the sun has set, we consider an alternative photovoltaic concept that uses the earth as a heat source and the night sky as a heat sink, resulting in a “nighttime photovoltaic cell” that employs thermoradiative photovoltaics and concepts from the advancing field of radiative cooling.”

They also explain in another report:

We were thinking, what if we took one of these (thermoradiative) devices and put it in a warm area and pointed it at the sky? A regular solar cell generates power by absorbing sunlight, which causes a voltage to appear across the device and for current to flow, (but) in these new devices, light is instead emitted and the current and voltage go in the opposite direction, but you still generate power. You have to use different materials, but the physics is the same.”

It’s not yet known how much power this technology might produce, but at this time the UC Davis team estimates perhaps as much as 50W during the night. This is about one quarter of the amount a typical solar panel might produce during the day. While this isn’t a huge amount, one could argue it’s worth it.

But what happens if we think outside the box a little further?

Breakthrough Energy

At Collective Evolution we have been exploring new energy technologies for many years, and have had a few close relationships with several investors who have truly been thinking outside the box. This has provided us with an inside look at what technologies are out there beyond what most people commonly speak about in the realm of renewables.

I’m talking about technologies that would deeply disrupt our current energy economy and that could provide energy to anyone, at anytime and in a completely clean manner.

Many believe these types of “breakthrough” technologies are nothing more than unicorns – they aren’t real. They believe them to be elaborate hoaxes that only show up online and in YouTube videos. And this is fair to say. There have been may hoaxes, including inventors who didn’t quite have what they had claimed, however, some of these technologies are real and work exactly as claimed.

“I started to examine the breakthrough solutions, and much to my surprise, these concepts have been proven in hundreds of laboratories throughout the world, and yet they have not really seen the light of day. If the new energy technologies were to be set free worldwide, the change be profound, it would affect everybody, it would be applicable everywhere. These technologies are absolutely the most important thing that’s happened in the history of the world.”  – Dr Brian O’Leary, Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor

In our research we came across a device local to us here in Toronto and had the opportunity to see it functioning first hand. We were there alongside a group of third party investors and engineers who were eager to see the technology in action and understand how it functions. Unfortunately for this piece, the NDA we had signed stops me from saying too much more about the specifics, however you can decide whether or not you believe my word that, yes, this technology was very real, worked to produce multiple kilowatts of power, and had the potential to change the way you view energy generation entirely.

We have also explored technologies our friends and colleagues have vetted as well. One of our latest ones from a man in Zimbabwe who invented a power generation system that charges itself via radio frequencies around the device. A truly remarkable idea, one you have to see to believe.

Another friend and colleague of ours, Susan Manewich, has been working to bring these technologies to market for years. Her and her team have travelled around the world vetting various technologies and working with inventors to find viable ways of making their technologies available for mass use. In her travels she has seen that only a small percentage of claims and devices are real and viable, perhaps only 5%. As low at that sounds, it still shows us that there are in fact devices that would completely revolutionize the way we produce and use energy today and yet these devices are not known about and in many cases hidden purposefully from the public.

We talk about this with Susan in great detail during an interview with we did with her as she shares her insight and experience having worked in the ‘new energy’ industry for many years. Dive into this important conversation on CETV here.

The Takeaway

Imagine what a society would look like if we had ‘freed’ up the secrecy behind the existence of these breakthrough energy technologies. Do you see humanity thriving? Do you see energy being free of charge for people? If not, do you feel humanity’s existing worldview i.e. competition, separation, etc, might be a barrier to these technologies being used to liberate the way we live?

Finally, if it is humanity’s worldview and belief that we must all compete with one another that gets in the way, does it suggest we might need to go about re-examining our worldview’s in order to live in a more peaceful and harmonious society? It appears as though the solutions are already all here, but the way we think of ourselves and one another deeply holds back a thriving world.
