All complex systems that evolve through bifurcations and species mutating to avoid extinction are known as macroshifts. And we can say that our world is now in a macroshift. We are headed toward a collapse of the economic and political processes, and military fallout … it is a necessity to transform ideas into solutions to combat these processes, to negate the collapse of economic and political processes, and prevent ecological shortages.
The reality we are experiencing today is a substantially new reality – climate change, global corporations, industrialized agriculture – challenging us to change with our rapidly changing world, lest we perish. Currently humans are at the brink of extinction unless a positive outlook is formed and fresh opportunities are developed to evolve into a new civilization.
In order to help us understand what we must do during this time of great transition, Ervin Laszlo, a Hungarian philosopher of science, twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, wrote a book titled Quantum Shift in the Global Brain: How the New Scientific Reality Can Change Us and Our World. In this book, Laszlo presents a new “reality map” to guide us through the world shifts we are experiencing – the problems, opportunities, and challenges we face individually as well as collectively.
The current reality experienced is the beginning of a rapidly changing world. It is important for humans to understand the new transition in science: multiple universes and how to interact with them. Ervin Laszlo acknowledges a shift from the “scientific view of reality toward the multidimensional world-view of multiple interconnected realities long known by the world’s great spiritual traditions.” It all comes down to change or become extinct.
It is well known that complex systems evolve and science, as we know it, is in the midst of a paradigm shift. Laszlo explains the new fundamental concept of reality as it relates to science as opposed to what most people believe. Everything is composed of different elements of energy complete with information: there are no bits of matter floating around in empty space. The universe is constantly changing and evolving into new realities.
Science’s cutting edge now views reality as broader, with multiple universes arising in a possibly infinite meta-universe, and deeper, extending into dimensions at the subatomic level. Scientists working on quantum science have rediscovered a cosmic meditative state that has been in existence for thousands of years known as “akasha”, a Sanskrit term for the most fundamental of the five elements of the cosmos, from an Indian philosophical tradition. As “akasha” underlies all the manifest phenomena of the cosmos, it can be sought through spiritual practice of meditation, reached and implemented to manifest phenomena.
Laszlo shows aspects of human experience that had previously been consigned to the domain of intuition and speculation are now being explored with scientific rigor and urgency. There has been a shift in the materialistic scientific view of reality toward the multidimensional worldview of multiple interconnected realities long known by the world’s great spiritual traditions. By understanding the interconnectedness of our changing world as well as our changing “map” of the world, we can navigate with insight, wisdom, and confidence.
Ervin Laszlo presents a different approach for his ‘reality map’ which guides us through the changes in science and discovery for individuals and society. Quantum science has many shifts related to the worldview and Laszlo provides explanations on the maximum code, on how to manifest a new reality. This is humans’ time of great transition of old ways yielding to new multi-dimensional realities.
In creating a globally interdependent and interacting world the ethic must be an amalgamation of all the ethics of mankind to produce what Laszlo calls a ‘planetary ethic’. The current method of human morality is out-dated by allowing people to live any way they desire. Those at the top of the scale, the rich and mighty, consume a disproportionate share of the planet’s resources while blocking access to vital resources to the less privileged. The suggestion presented is in developing a new planetary ethic where others less fortunate are able to live properly and without resentment towards those who control the greater quantity of essential items to provide the ability to live.
In supporting his theories of making these global changes, Laszlo discusses life and mind-transforming experiences of people who have had a near-death experience returning to life with a changed consciousness and awareness of a new energy. They have achieved inner peace, empathy for others, a reverence for nature and a new found appreciation of existence. They are left with a realization of being part of a larger plan and all people on this planet are inter-connected though we are individuals.
It is through spiritual emotions that we are all connected, whether by use of negativity or positive thoughts. In order to create a new methodology of saving our planet and ourselves it is preferable to create positive emotions. Currently there is an excess of negative emotions which is dragging down mankind and creating unnecessary struggling. With these ideals Ervin Laszlo is trying to provide an explanation of how we might overcome these negative struggles to a better and more positive lifestyle that benefits everyone.
