Thomas Lombardo – Future Consciousness: The Path to Purposeful Evolution

Thomas Lombardo

Thomas Lombardo discusses his book Future Consciousness – The Path to Purposeful Evolution.

How do we create a good future? This deceptively simple question is the central challenge of human life. Indeed, the question highlights the most distinctive and empowering capacity of the human mind – to consciously imagine and intentionally pursue preferable futures, a multi-faceted psychological ability within us all that Lombardo refers to as ‘future consciousness’.

We stand at what many consider to be a pivotal juncture in human history. Just as technological advancements race ahead with digitization and automation changing the face of society at breathtaking speed, so too we face unprecedented economic, political, social, and environmental crises. In response, many of us attempt to ignore these pressing problems by simply shutting down, lost in the past or the future, the good old days or daydreams of better times to come. Meanwhile, practitioners in the burgeoning field of pop psychology urge us to live in the present moment, the only thing that apparently exists. Both mindsets, however, may prove to be psychological dead-ends.

Change, in fact, is the only constant, and stability – of the settled, sustainable kind we seem to crave – is an illusion. Evolution, the meta-process of which humanity is an embedded part, is dynamic. It requires challenge and even crisis to move forward. Order does arise from chaos, but it is unpredictable. Evolution is the drive towards increasing complexity, and it is accelerating just as the universe itself is expanding. We are the universe becoming aware of itself and we have a tremendous responsibility to which current convulsions may ultimately serve to awaken us.

Joanna Demers – The Sound of the Apocalypse

November 2, 2017

Joanna Demers

Joanna Demers discusses her books ‘Drone and Apocalypse’ and ‘Anatomy of Thought Fiction’. The idea of apocalypse is truly ancient. Although the word essentially translates as a revelation of knowledge, today the term is commonly used in reference to end-time scenarios or to the end of the world in general. Almost every culture and civilization has or has had its own apocalyptic tradition, often believing the end-time already begun and the end itself imminent. Whether self-inflicted or supernatural, cosmic or divine, apocalyptic thinking infuses all corners of culture. From the mysteries and meanings of religion and art, to our beliefs about the past, present and future, and the values which guide how we see ourselves, others, and the world at large, the dread of impending doom never seems far away.

John Michael Greer – Dark Age America: Part Two

January 28, 2017

John Michael Greer 7

John Michael Greer discusses his latest book Dark Age America – Climate Change, Cultural Collapse, and the Hard Future Ahead. As we lurch on into the early part of the 21st Century, converging crises in energy, economy, and environment are rapidly undermining the foundations of industrial civilization and the materialistic way of life which so many of us take for granted. Energy – because cheap, easily accessible fossil fuels are running out and industrial civilization as we know it simply cannot be sustained by renewables. Economy – because at almost every level, global, national, corporate, and personal, we are drowning in debt that cannot and therefore will not be repaid but whose unravelling will cause mass destruction of governments, banks, entire industries, and millions of lives. Environment – because centuries of industrial civilization have wreaked havoc on the biosphere, triggering catastrophic climate change while poisoning the ecosystems on which life on Earth depends.

Joel Caris – Into the Ruins: Our De-Industrial Destiny

September 25, 2016

Joel Caris

Joel Caris discusses his new quarterly magazine Into The Ruins, and the doubtful future of industrial society. Modern industrial civilization is a mode of existence which most of us take for granted. The abundant food, supercharged sanitation, endless entertainment, and constellation of other seemingly unlimited choices laid before us is rarely questioned, and its complexities are poorly understood. But in our headlong charge to consume more of everything whatever the cost, we have set in motion a chain of events which is currently cascading towards catastrophe.

J.M. Harrison – Humanity, Insanity, and the Ascent of the Soul

April 10, 2016

J.M. Harrison

Jonathan Harrison discusses his book You Are This: Awakening to the Living Presence of Your Soul. Whether step by step or in the wake of sudden shocks, increasing numbers of people are questioning the meaning of their lives and that of the world around them. As a result, some are even drawn to doubt their own sanity. But what at first might appear as a disastrous disintegration of daily life may in fact emerge as a revitalising re-birth; the dawning of a wider reality and a deeper sense of self infinitely more meaningful than the maze of matter-of-fact materialism through which so many of us have wandered for millennia.

Frank Landis – Hot Earth Dreams: Will Humans Survive?

January 25, 2016

Frank Landis

Frank Landis gives his first ever interview about his book Hot Earth Dreams: What if Severe Climate Change Happens, and Humans Survive? What will the Earth look like if severe climate change happens, and humans survive? It’s not an easy question to contemplate, let alone answer. If severe climate change happens, the Earth will continue to warm for centuries after we’ve exhausted our fossil fuels. Civilization will shatter, the great artworks and monuments vanishing as cities fall into rubble and coasts disappear beneath rising seas. There will be mass extinctions, coral reefs and ice sheets will vanish, and the survivors will migrate to new homes and habitats for generations as the climate continually changes. Only after hundreds of thousands of years will the climate to return to what we currently consider normal.

Jay Dyer – Magic, Mass Media and the Mind Control Matrix

November 21, 2015

Jay Dyer

We live in a world of illusion, a realm of the unreal. The primal impulses and drives so central to our being – for meaning, purpose, oneness, and love – are diminished and driven out amid the avalanche of disinformation, duplicity and deceit under which we labour, day in, day out. Our culture has become corrupted, our instincts corroded, and the very idea of truth lost in a sea of lies. Many among us think that it has always been so; still others see a species simply gone astray, forlornly searching once more for the way from which we wandered on some fateful day.

Graham Hancock – Magicians of the Gods

October 12, 2015

Graham Hancock

A giant comet that had entered the solar system from deep space thousands of years earlier, broke into multiple fragments, some of which struck the Earth causing devastation on a scale unseen since the extinction of the dinosaurs. The impacts from comet fragments a mile wide approaching at more than 60,000 miles an hour instantly liquidized millions of square miles of ice, destabilizing the Earth’s crust and causing the global Deluge that is remembered in myths all around the world. A second series of equally devastating impacts caused further cataclysmic flooding around 11,600 years ago, the exact date that Plato gives for the annihilation of Atlantis.
