The materialist paradigm which has shaped science and society for the last several hundred years is now driving the slow-motion suicide of the human race. The materialist worldview, which denies the existence of anything beyond the five-sense, three-dimensional reality it takes to be all that there is, causes states of extreme mental fragility, incompleteness, and insignificance. These feelings generate cravings to accumulate power and wealth, and to dominate others. This pathology is most prevalent among those at the top in business and politics which, taken together, control the world.
Yet for much of human history, we dwelled in a state of profound connection with the world around us, with an innate understanding that all creation springs from a single source. But does the modern denial of the very possibility of meaning or purpose in existence stem solely from fundamentalist materialism, or might its origin lie deeper in the dark mists of our collective past?
