The authors examine various myths entrenched in the basic beliefs of our civilization and challenge 1) the main tenets of Newtonian philosophy, basically that the only reality is physical matter 2) Charles Darwin's theory of evolution and the necessity for us to fight for our survival - survival of the fittest 3) the theory that we have all blindly accepted for years that we are controlled and limited by our genes and 4) that evolution and everything else that happens to us is random. Actually all these four premises have been proved by modern science to be fallacious, but our society is still acting on them as though they were true.
It is explained that evolution did not occur gradually but in great leaps. Single cells developed into single cell communities. These developed into multicellular organisms, which in turn developed into societal organizations.
That is, we did not evolve through competition and fighting but through cooperation and banding (bonding) together.
The crazy self-destructive way our human society is run is compared to the way the cells in our body run the show. Our cells don't fight and kill each other but pool their resources and work together for the health of the greater whole.Read more ›
This is such a relevant text for our times. It is easy to read. It is erudite and researched yet never patronizing. Drawing seamlessly from religions, physics (quantum and Newtonian), biology, genetics, politics, history, economics, etymology, philosophy, spiritualism, and present day situations it clearly pinpoints the critical state of global play today. If you are wondering why everything seems to be going to hell in a handcart just now, this clarifies matters.
This is not an instruction manual although it can be considered an invaluable companion for the current years. It gives clear conclusions and suggestions to help evolve more understanding of our existence; in doing this it leaves the reader to question further - and boy, do we need to ask some questions! The common sense and optimism of the book is similar to being in the company of one of those lovely people we meet sometimes who just make us feel better for having been talking with them.
Hard scientific facts entwine with ancient wisdoms and even history blends with biology as if to reinforce a central theme - everything is connected. The writing is delightfully leavened with dry humour, two of my favourite subheadings being: "The bad news is, there is no key to the Universe. The good news is, it has been left unlocked", and "The truth shall upset you free."
What this book is telling us, we all need to know.
Yet this is not an academic treatise. It is clearly written, well informed and deeply profound. Not only does it show us how our misinterpretations of the way things are have led us to create a world out of balance and heading towards disasters on all fronts, it shows us how humans are evolving and can further evolve into true human beings, at peace with their world and taking care of each other and the planet they live on to the best of their abilities.
For those of us who keep on struggling to stay positive about the future this book is essential reading. We all need to spontaneously evolve into a new species and leave behind our childish, self-centred notion of independence and self-protectionism so that we can truly participate as grown-ups in the real world where we recognize that all living beings are connected and can truly experience energy and spirit being once again deeply connected with matter and flesh.
I heartily recommend you read it for yourself and then tell all your friends about it.
