Facets

Who we are fundamentally

Our history

Where we are

Where we are going

What are we evolving into? And what is the ultimate purpose and destination of our never-ending change?

There is a necessity for a radical revolution in consciousness in order to survive as an individual and as a species.  Technological and scientific development is proceeding at an unprecedented and dangerous rate, we must evolve morally and spiritually or our essence will be obscured by our inventions.

Transcendence of living through thought and from the limited ego is central to this metamorphosis.  Thought is a wonderful tool but it cannot explain the mystery of your being.

The Individual and the Totality

Each individual is the story of mankind, contains all of mankind.

The human mind is essentially the same, differing only in content – which is different only by degree.  The human experience is common to all.   It is the same mind characterized by thought – with its fears, loves, hates, desires, wants,

 

Humanity & Evolution

Humanity now has the ability to damage its own species and the earth with unprecedented efficiency.  The advancements of science and technology have not been simultaneous with moral and spiritual growth in the species as a whole.  This collective insanity  is reaching a certain threshold of dysfunction after which human beings will either die out due to our poisonous presence and inability to evolve along with the universe, or we will do what must be done to continue as a living organism and what we have done countless times in our evolution from prokaryote to eukaryote to ape: evolve.  This radical mutation must happen and will happen.

The evolution will not be physical but wholly mental and concern our state of consciousness.  The transformation will primarily be a freedom from thought and the ego, or center which both divide man against himself, against his neighbor, and against nature.
