Reverse Engineering the Human Soul
By the time a human child is old enough to contemplate its place in the cosmos, it is already aware that the society and civilization it inhabits is mentally and spiritually ill. Something deep within tells us that we are feeble caricatures of what we ought to be.Yet throughout our lives, we try to convince ourselves that it is our dreams, our ideals, and our aspirations that are at fault. That the faint whisperings we hear in the quiet hours of the deep night are illusions, and that "reality" and "common sense" require us to accept and conform to this barren, spiritually sterile wasteland that we call the modern world.
But the human soul was not designed for such a feeble purpose. We were intended for something far greater. And until we can reclaim the full use of our human potentiality, we are akin to a butterfly that creeps through the mud, or an eagle that hops from branch to branch.
The world stands on the precipice of a new era, and it is already quite clear that this "Age of Aquarius" will be a trying time for the human species. Indeed . . . for the planet as a whole. With seven billion human souls already here, and more on the way, our species has reached a biological tipping point that is nearly as ominous as the environmental tipping point our industrial activity is generating. Without dramatic changes in the way we live, behave and interact with our planet, the next few decades could see society degrade into a literal "Hell on Earth".
But if 1.5 billion years of evolution has proven anything, it is that life . . . . Consciousness . . . . is remarkably resilient. The question is not "whether the planet can survive". Most assuredly, it will. The question is whether Homo sapiens will survive, now that we have so seriously damaged the habitat that supports us, and what part the human race will play in whatever world replaces our current, rapidly dying one. I firmly believe that humanity is in the midst of an evolutionary transition, and that the only way to secure a lasting place for ourselves in the Aquarian Era is to redefine our relationship with one another, not to mention our relationship with Life, and Consciousness as a whole. We must move to a higher, more inclusive, less selfish, rational, and infinitely better connected consciousness. Otherwise, that 1980s hit song by the Police -- Walking in Your Footsteps -- will serve as the epitaph for our age.
We have run out of other options. Like those feeble-finned fish floundering in the mud of a rapidly evaporating Permian pool, we only have two choices left: Evolve. . . . or die. This is "Good News" because it obliterates any excuse you still might have for not making the effort. Even if the endeavour is doomed from the start, we still must pursue it. There isnt any other choice. It is our only way out.
The purpose of this website is to discuss, debate and experiment with new approaches to the challenges that will face us all, in the third millennium of our modern age. I am firmly convinced that we are witnessing the birth of a new form of Consciousness, though it is impossible to say precisely what that means, or what shape the new Consciousness will take. The efforts of each individual Human Soul in the coming days, weeks, months and years will determine our shared future, and the more experiences, viewpoints and imaginations we can enlist, the better our chances of scraping through the current crisis and into the new age. This community is a place for sharing, for exploring, and for seeking to revive the genius that lies hidden in each and every one of us. By re-discovering the design and the purpose for which we were made, perhaps we can turn this wasteland in which we now live, back into the Garden that was bequeathed to us all.
If you share the objectives, goals and aspirations described in the paragraphs above, then it is time to stop hiding your light under a bushel.
