Philosopher, mathematician, linguist and healer Charles Eisenstein has up to this point examined the fundamental ideology underlying both our science and religion, the project of domination and control, why this has led to the myriad problems we face and the general dissatisfaction most people feel with life.
Quotes-66.gifThe Age of Separation in all its dimensions has unfolded before us. The objectification and reduction of the world, the conversion of life into money, the program of understanding and control, the alienation of a discrete and separate self are all reaching their historical zenith in our time. All of these facets of separation are bound together in the official dogma of our civilization: the religion of science. However, starting perhaps a century ago, new countercurrents have welled up from within science itself that are contributing to a gathering sea-change. This momentous shift both drives and reflects even vaster changes, a wholesale transformation of all the dimensions of separation that comprise the ascent of humanity.Quotes-99.gif
