Ten years ago, I was asked to write an article for a journal about the intersection between science and metaphysics. More precisely, I was asked to comment about where I thought Newtonian-Cartesian Science was headed–possibly to the study of pure energy. I stated that it was obvious that the progression was from the study of “something” to the study of “nothing”–or the study of consciousness.
The obvious skills available to humans for the study of consciousness are metaphysical skills. So the next paradigm will involve study beyond the bodymind world of those things we can see, feel, and probe with every possible kind of instrumentation.
It will involve developing the power of the mind beyond the survival-driven programming that so totally controls our base motivations. We might even learn how to get along on this very small, but magnificent, planet. It is the obvious key to a transformation in the planetary consciousness so desperately needed to ensure our continued existence.
I have attached this paper to this site along the right-side column for your reading pleasure. Take a look and let me know what you think!
