THE EVOLUTIONARY STORY of Y[OUR] SPECIES ...

from the outset of its JOURNEY of LIFE, has been a story of moving

toward and beyond the Omega Point; which on reflexion IS a mirror

of MY STORY of the story of two lives.

The Gaia Community, which I hastily established subsequent to the demise

of *zaadz@gaiawas based on the very same values and principles of

COMPASSION, COLLABORATIONCOOPERATION IN TRANSITION, which

'the seed' of *zaadz had espoused - as Gaia chose to transmogrify into gaiam

and thence gaiamtv, in the guise of the standard business for profit 

model, rather than the *ZAADZ Business OF Community version - with the

THE Evolutionary's Guide to Changing the World

In his 1955 masterpiece The Phenomenon of Man, French priest and paleontologist

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin wrote the following words: "Evolution is a light which

illuminates all facts, a curve that all lines must follow." Over the course of the past

half century since its publication, this prophetic statement has turned out to be true, as

evolution has become a defining framework in which we are beginning to understand

virtually everything - from biology and technology to the interior dimensions of reality

like our psychology, cultural worldviews, and even spirituality.

 

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin goes on to propose in Chapter 3: The Grand Option of his

book, which he aptly entitled The Future of Mankind ... "This being so, let us look at the

human species and SEE IF we can fit it into the scheme. Because we ate a part of it,

because the rhythm of its growth is infinitely slow in comparison with our own, and

because its grandeur overwhelms us, Mankindin its total evolutionescapes our 

intuitive graspBut may we not see reflected in the life around us things that we

cannot see directly in ourselves?  Let us study ourselves in the mirror of other

living formsWHAT DO WE SEE ?

 

REMEMBER REMEMBER THE FIFTH OF NOVEMBER

When THE WAY comes to an end, then change;

having changed, you pass through I Ching
