Some people have it rough. But in the bigger picture we have never had more freedom, more access to knowledge and more opportunity. And we are mostly pretty safe, living long lives and dying in old age. It’s hard to believe, I know. Is the media and modern ideology making us delusional and fearful?
My belief is that there is often something more important than taking sides in a debate or argument. How is my attitude towards the subject affecting my consciousness? Does my position cause an expansion of consciousness, or a contraction? This is not an intellectual question. It requires an intuitively-felt answer, and you will know that…
Most of my friends are liberals. I adhere nether to modern liberalism, nor to conservatism, but I am attracted to the spirit of liberalism (You will find out what I mean by that as you read on). Much of what passes for liberalism in the modern world is actually conservatism dressed up as the former. There is an inherent degree of intolerance and bigotry which is commonly being expressed. The liberal true ideal is typified by love, acceptance, compassion, equality, generosity and peace. It is no coincidence that these are also associated with the higher stages of consciousness evolution. Of awakening, or enlightenment, if you prefer.
On this episode of The Consciousness Files you will find out how artificial intelligence will be superseded by artificial wisdom intelligence; how Facebook can connect not only our thoughts and words, but our consciousness; and how the hearts and brain-waves of people within corporations can be synchronised to create compassionate business futures.
Have you ever felt that you have a greater calling, but have never been able to put your finger on what it is? Listen to Kelly Howell’s conversation with author and post-conventional futurist Dr. Marcus T. Anthony discuss his work on Integrated Intelligence and the practice of accessing your built-in intuitive voice to draw upon an infinite source of knowledge and wisdom.
What if when you enter a room, instead of looking about with your eyes and listening with your ears, you first employed your feelings to get a sense of the place? If you did this every time you entered a new space, how would it change your perception of place? How would it transform the way you relate to the world, to people, to your experience of self as a conscious being?
In this episode you will find out the best science fiction novel of all time, why cyborgs are an inevitable part of the future, why Ray Kurzweil’s idea of consciousness being uploaded onto computers is limited, and why the Benjamin Libet free will experiments are wrong in suggesting we do not have free will.
In my chat with him you will find out why he threw in a perfectly decent and potentially promising career as neuroscientist, why he believes that Rupert Sheldrake is wrong about morphic fields, and how reading a letter sent ten years into the future changed his life forever.
I often refer to the term “Integrated Intelligence.” For example, it is a central part of The Future of Consciousness project and book of the same name, as well as my podcast The Consciousness Files. However, not everyone who visits this blog has read my books or knows what I mean by this term. So in today’s…
What will the future look like once we expand our conception of consciousness to include the extended mind and integrated intelligence?
What changes can we expect in science, education, business and society as a whole? What practical applications are we likely to see, including high-tech, low-tech and no-tech? Who are the men and women who will drive the ideas and innovation?
What you focus upon expands. When we look at the moon on the horizon, it seems huge. But if we take a photo of it, it appears tiny. The photo tells you the truth. The mind presents the distortion.
