A life changing read!!!, 1 Feb. 2011
This is an amazing book! I would think virtually everyone on the planet has something to learn from this book. For anyone interested in evolution, neuroscience, physics, biology, consciousness, mind, psychology, Gaia hypothesis, spirituality, healing, personal development, ego, modern culture and many more I would advise it's a must read. I'm certain the understanding of the evolution of our awareness presented in this book will have a profound effect on our collective development.
Among many extremely insightful observations, we can understand how our `irrational' mind functions at a higher level than our egocentric rational mind. We can also understand how we co-evolved symbiotically with the rainforest as one functioning whole but then humanity had to evolve into an individualistic competitive hierarchy in order to survive environmental changes.
The book is also incredibly timely, although we have managed to populate virtually the whole planet in this fashion, it is our view of ourselves as individuals in this competitive hierarchy, with each other and nature, that now poses the biggest threat to our collective well-being and survival. The time for our awareness to rediscover and manifest the true symbiotic relationship between our inner and outer world is NOW! This book is deeply helpful.
