The thought I've been having is that there's another technology mankind is n the verge of embracing without knowing it, one that won't be brought to us by physicists, or any of the people we expect, but from those people who have honed both their logical, rational minds and their competence in what we now call the mystical or shamanic realm.

This is part of a continuum that's been going on, and the physics we have learned in the last century is not the last great discovery. There's something staring us in the face, all of us, and some people with vision and a gift for words are going to present it so that no one will be able to refute it and many won't want to. They'll be telling us what we already know and ignore, in a way that will allow us to think and talk about it and even use it in new ways.

I think that's the next step. It won't make the world a happy, mystical place, but it may set the corporate world on its head after a while. We'll all be slapping ourselves in the forehead saying, "Hey, I knew that. I just never really said it." Like we do when an intuition we had turns out to have been right, but we didn't trust it enough to speak up when it first came to us, so we can't prove it to anyone. You know what I mean.

The next technology of mankind will be a transformational one. The days of believing that the material is the only absolute and that it determines everything will seem like the years of childhood when we believed in Santa Claus. We already know better at some level. We already suspect. But we want it to be that way so we're trying not to listen when we hear the whispers.

We don't have long, people.

When one man has reduced a fact of the imagination to be a fact to his understanding, I foresee that all men will at length establish their lives on that basis. ---H. D. Thoreau

How very true
My word yes. I listened to Solsbury Hill this morning. Thanks for getting me to listen to it.
