Download Hour1 Download Hour2This week we continue reading from Charles Eisenstein, in whcih we hear the latest thinking in the field of biology - relegating competition to a minor theme within a cooperative system, in which order emerges organically from complexity.
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. This week we conclude chapter 6, The Crumbling of Certainty.
Quotes-66.gif What kind of society will emerge with the fall of the Newtonian World-machine? How will the human spirit blossom, when we no longer enforce the artificial boundaries of the discrete and separate self? What will human life look like, when we cease seeing it as a competition for survival in a objective universe devoid of purpose, sacredness, and meaning? The second Scientific Revolution that I have outlined is but part of a vaster sea-change in our own self-conception, a symptom as well as a cause for a new way of relating to the world. It marks a turning point, the end of the Age of Separation and the beginning of a new Age of Reunion.Quotes-99.gif
