Interview with Stephan Schwartz — Futurist, Researcher, and Author of “The 8 Laws of Change: How to Be an Agent of Personal and Social Transformation”
“There’s no need to change the world. There is a better way. I say let’s toilet change the world and we’ll never have to change it again.” — Swami Beyondananda
When sane and reverent people look at our current political, ecological “shituation”, it is understandable if they ask, “Is this the hand of God at work – or just the Middle Finger”?
Our guest on Wiki Politiki this week, Stephan A. Schwartz – who has spent a lifetime delving into physical and metaphysical reality – offers a deep perspective on the challenges we face individually, collectively and indeed as a species as we address the key questions for transformation: What’s so? So what? Now what?
Stephan A. Schwartz is an award-winning author of fiction and non-fiction, a columnist for the journal Explore, and editor of the daily web publication Schwartzreport.net – where he covers trends that are affecting the future. He is a Distinguished Consulting Faculty of Saybrook University, and a BIAL fellow. His other academic and research appointments include: Senior Samueli Fellow for Brain, Mind and Healing of the Samueli Institute; founder and Research; Director of the Mobius laboratory; Director of Research of the Rhine Research Center; and Senior Fellow of The Philosophical Research Society. (And I can add from meeting him in person, he is a Jolly Good Fellow as well.) He has also worked with the US Navy as Special Assistant for Research and Analysis to the Chief of Naval Operations, and consultant to the Oceanographer of the Navy.
For 40 years he has been studying the nature of consciousness, particularly that aspect independent of space and time. Schwartz is part of the small group that founded modern Remote Viewing research, and is the principal researcher studying the use of Remote Viewing in archaeology.
His current work is exemplified by his daily Schwartz Report. He writes:
When I began Schwartzreport my purpose was to produce an entirely fact-based daily publication in favor of the earth, the inter-connectedness and interdependence of all life, democracy, equality for all, liberty and things that are life affirming. Also, to warn my readers about actions, events, and trends which threaten those values. Our country now stands at a crossroads, indeed, the world stands at a crossroads where those values are very much at risk and it is up to each of us who care about wellbeing to do what we can to defend those principles.
Join us for an eye-opening, mind-expanding, heartful conversation that takes us beyond the “deep state” to a deeper state of awareness, and offers a simple and practical pathway for changing the future through our actions now. Along the way we will discuss the surprising secret behind Gandhi’s campaign for Indian independence, a first-hand view of Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech, and adventures in the world of remote viewing. (No, that’s not how psychics find their remote when it is buried in the couch pillows.)
Seriously and humorously, this conversation will guide us beyond “baked-in” beliefs toward the “life-affirming integrity” that will help us evolve from children of God to adults of good – and get us through our awkward “addled-essence” phase.
