Conscious Evolution: Antidote to Mass-Extinction with Bruce Lipton
“Crisis precipitates evolution, and if we look at our world in crisis, we see the chances of precipitation are 100%.” — Swami Beyondananda
As we create a new foundation for “political climate change”, what better place to begin than biology itself, evolution, and where we humans fit (or don’t fit) in the web of life? So it’s “fitting” that my first interviewed guest on Wiki Politiki is my friend, colleague and co-author, Bruce Lipton.
Bruce is a pioneer in epigenetics, and the author of bestseller and classic, The Biology of Belief. He and I co-wrote Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here, a book that suggests that the next phase of human evolution is seeing ourselves as cells in the body of a super-organism called Humanity — or as I prefer to call it, Humankind, because the currency of this new and evolved organism is human kindness.
So, how are we doing?
For one thing, Bruce and I agree that when we published our book in 2009, “spontaneous evolution” was a noun in the future, and today it is a verb in the present. Burgeoning crises are making evolution necessary.
Among those crises is what is being called the Sixth Great Extinction, and it’s becoming more and more apparent that our own species tops the Endangered (and Endangering) species list.
Please join us for this lively, informative, and ultimately heartening discussion of how our human conditioning has impacted our human condition, where we are now, and what we can do to create what Charles Eisenstein calls “the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.”
Half a century ago, inventor and visionary philosopher Bucky Fuller wrote a book about humanity’s future called, Utopia Or Oblivion. In a shrinking world that could surely use a “good shrink”, these were the two stark choices he saw. Given the option for “oblivion,” perhaps we should consider utopia more carefully. And … as we explore the amazing similarities between the human body and the body politic, we recognize that what we consider “utopia”, the 50 trillion cell community beneath our skin would merely recognize as “health”.
