Brian Swimme – The New Story

“I have a sense that something amazing is at work … I think our planet is actually moving into a time of profound harmony and fecundity and peace but whether that’s going to take 600 years or 6 days I don’t know. I mean, I think that as humans begin to take seriously… the planetary dimension of conscious self-awareness, then we will become humanized versions of natural selection – so that we will begin to make decision with the large scale dynamic of the planet in mind. So I see that we’re actually entering into a transformation of the human species out of the modern period into this new era… It may take centuries… but like the past and it’s catastrophes I think that’s… what’s taking place in the midst of so many hardships.”

Alan Watts – Nature Of Now

“I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present,
which is what there is and all there is.”

“Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies.
We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.”

Alan Watts

Joe Rogan – The Sensory Deprivation Tank

“The planet’s spinning a thousand miles an hour around this gigantic nuclear explosion while these people roll these machines with rubber tires over this hard surface that we’ve laid down over the planet so that we can easily move ourselves back and forth.” – Joe Rogan

The Sensory Deprivation Tank is an amazing experience, I really recommend everyone try it.

Michio Kaku – Will Mankind Destroy Itself?

“It’s humbling to realize that the developmental gulf between a minuscule ant colony and our modern human civilization is only a tiny fraction of the distance between a Type 0 and a Type III civilization – a factor of 100 billion billion, in fact. Yet we have such a highly regarded view of ourselves, we believe a Type III civilization would find us irresistible and would rush to make contact with us. The truth is, however, they may be as interested in communicating with humans as we are keen to communicate with ants.”
