Exploring the Depths of Inner Consciousness: The Next Scientific Paradigm*
“Spirit is the infinite reservoir of wisdom. Each human
life is a channel through which that divine
wisdom is steadily flowing.”
The objectives of this course are to:
1.Propose that the new daring frontier of study of human evolvement is the “Science of Consciousness.”
2.Show that such a study begins with a significant breakthrough in human intelligence as wisdom.
3.Participate in an imagery exercise designed to create the experiential integration of body, mind, and spirit.
4.Participate in an exercise to begin creating a new paradigm for the study of the Science of Consciousness and the continued existence of humankind on planet Earth.
The Science of Consciousness
The daring new frontier of science is the exploration of that realm of consciousness that cannot be directly measured by Newtonian-Cartesian instrumentation.
It involves the in-depth, experiential exploration of the individual and collective belief structures that characterize the intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships of humankind.
As discoveries and creations of Newtonian-Cartesian science and technology are applied toward the survival, conveniences, and desires of humankind, the explorations of our present belief structures are also directed toward questions of survival, in addition to wisdom and human evolution.
The process begins with an in-depth examination of whether our present individual and collective belief structures support:
1)The creation of a planetary ecosystem that threatens and will ultimately create an uninhabitable planet for human survival.
2)A consciousness that tends to resolve serious conflict through armed aggression or the threat of armed aggression.
3)A level of human evolvement that lacks the wisdom to responsibly govern our scientific and technological advancements to ensure the well-being and continued existence of humankind.
The Course will be continued in the coming days with experiential exercises. There will also be a final examination at the conclusion. (smile) The Course will be of particular value to science and technology based organizations.
As usual comments are valued.
