The Hundredth Monkey

 


Vaclav Havel, president of the Czech Republic, has said: "Without a global revolution in the sphere of human consciousness, nothing will change for the better... and the catastrophe toward which this world is headed-the ecological, social, demographic, or general breakdown of civilization-will be unavoidable."

Albert Einstein said that we need a substantially new manner of thinking if Humankind is to survive.

The key is a critical mass of change through the access of new consciousness which upholds the dignity of human life and all of life and realizes the fundamental interdependence and one--ness of life
The esoteric and perennial teaching held by Indigenous peoples ,mystical teachings and in the deep recesses of all religion is in fact part of the consciousness and hidden potential of all Humanity. Owing to the current perturbation of the whole Human life support system the birth right of humanity is bubbling up through the collective Unconscious.

The critical mass for change depends on the Hundredth monkey effect. This Indicates the Critical Human Being who tips the scale of mass Consciousness whereby the people awaken to the Consciousness for The Need For Change.

With the current Global Crisis it is evident that Economy structures should be modified and designed to meet the needs of people in society. It is the government that should be responsible for this structural policy implementation which needs to be designed and substantiated by new research institutions. The current economy is deteriorating generally as shown by a global recession, global food shortages and peak oil in which there is an increasing sector to the global economic market of destructive and criminal tendencies. (Humanistic Economics - Dr Pavel Kashyanov)

It is essential that there be governance and regulation of the economy related to genuine public needs with the development of beneficial aspects and the abolition of harmful sections.

Globalization on the free trade model of the neo-liberal Washington consensus economics is colliding with local cultures natural economic sovereignty, social customs and values, as well as traditional agriculture, indigenous rights and the protection of biodiversity and the environment. The fundamental issue is the very economic model underlying today's Globalization of technology, trades and markets. The critics from many diverse perspectives agree that free trade doesn't account for social and environmental costs and cultural disruption in the price in traded goods and services will continue to cause more harm than good.

The World Bank, the IMF, the US Government and the WTO still refuse to recalculate prices and microeconomic indicators including the GDP to include these social and environmental costs, which contribute towards the deterioration of human life.

Civil society movement groups throughout the world are committed to the idea of preserving human identity and enriching biological and cultural diversity.

Education and Well Being are prerequisites for a healthy Environment and Economy. Instead we find a Global System which uses education to manipulate our future generations to be the brain fodder for transnational corporations, the Pharmaceutical Industry and the Military Industrial complex. Education for life is not included in this plan. Universities create a fragmented approach to education not seeing the all the various subjects are interlinked into one whole. Doctors are trained to be technicians for prescribing Pharmaceutical chemical drugs which have many side effects. They are not trained to heal. The globalized culture of westernization although enhancing freedom of expression is built on the philosophy and premise that wealth is the key to happiness at the expense of anything else to the extent that Human Beings are purely data in an economic calculator for the global monetocracy and elite.

This is now leading to increased wars for territory, Global economic crisis . tremendous Global poverty and as a result of vast exploitation of our living and non living resources , climate change. pollution and a phase 6th extinction of Global diversity.

The fundamental orientation of the sciences must be to enhance the role of consciousness and to understand that any experiment is influenced by the intention and expectation of the researcher. Science objectifies phenomenal reality not realizing we are always part of the process and the experiment. Over differentiation and reductionism has led to over specialization so that the total all inclusive picture is not seen. Science needs to become humanized.

The raising of consciousness and awareness is the only way that humanity has to free itself from the potential of ecological and species catastrophe.

Our survival as a species, is dependent upon the new meta Paradigm which brings together science and religion in terms of a new understanding of the nature of consciousness and a holistic approach to life rather than a reductive materialistic approach.

This is in fact happening, as we begin to see the supreme importance of consciousness, in our lives, and the significance of love, gratitude, and the essence of consciousness from which all true wisdom emanates.

This edition of the New Paradigm Journal is devoted to these important issues, placing emphasis on the nature of consciousness, healing and ways by which we can raise awareness, and articulate the true nature of our predicament and also the true nature of consciousness and true holistic education.

There is the need for true information and education to be widely promulgated so that people are aware of, and understand the critical nature of our situation on the planet.
The New Paradigm Journal emphasizes a new frame of reference as to the true nature of the human being and our connectedness with the total universe.
.
One way to implement change is to create living communities who create environmental and energy conservation, new forms of energy production (solar) and organic, perma-culture, horticulture, in an independent self -regulating autonomous communal environment.

The New Paradigm Journal aims to cultivate a critical mass and the formation of a nexus of change,. It is this Critical Mass which will be the catalyst for creating a better and more sustainable World.

And men go abroad to admire the heights of mountains, the mighty billows of the sea, the broad tide of rivers, the compass of the ocean, and the circuits of the stars, and pass themselves by . . . (St Augustine)

The truth is that all-out economic growth can no longer be viewed as the ideal way of reconciling material progress with equity, respect for the human condition, and respect for the natural assets that we have a duty to hand on in good condition to future generations." - JACQUES DELORS

If human kind is to survive there has to be substantially new manner of thinking (Einstein) and a massive change in consciousness. (Vaclav Havel)
