It is written somewhere that history may inform our current endeavors. History has indeed dictated that the lessons of The unMonastery be collected in a singular fashion. Although earliest known sources have the title as The Book of Greater and Lesser Omissions this is not the language of the street. The more punchy title Il Libro degli Errori stuck.

Deus Ex Machina vs. Electric Gaia

Deus Ex Machina vs. Electric Gaia | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

 The emergence of cyberspace is undoubtedly creating a wave of religious enthusiasm. Partly, the infinity that cyberspace creates, functions as an ideal mechanism for the projection of our fondest hopes and deepest fears. It therefore generates an extraordinary amount of cultural energy, the fusion of techno-utopianism, the desire for the spiritual liberation from the constraints of matter, and the 'end of the millenium' fears for the end of the world ... what author Michael Grosso calls the Technocalyps.

Is there any value in New Age thinking? | openDemocracy

Is there any value in New Age thinking?  | openDemocracy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Defining 'New Age' is difficult - the term has been appropriated by all kinds of cults. In my view, the New Age movement was a reaction against the mistakes of western civilisation: an heir to utopian socialism.

Trialectics - P2P Foundation

Trialectics - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Trialectics is a synthesis of basically the same systems of thought that appeared in the 20th century under different names, such as "ecology of mind", "unitary thought", "general systems thinking", "cybernetics" or "synergetics". Trialectics is the third essential current of the logical thinking that evolved from Aristotle's formal logic and Hegel's dialectics. Therefore, we are first going to explore the basic axioms of formal logic and dialectics and then compare them with trialectics.

An open letter to all my former students upon return from my sabbatical.

It has been almost 2 years since the structures of our shared Utopian experiment collapsed so violently and so completely. It’s also been almost that long that I have dropped out of sight. As most of you already know, I was asked to step down, which I reluctantly agreed to. Ever since that moment, I have wanted to find out what happened. I have understandably been desperate to find out why this has all occurred. Why did this terrible destruction have to happen? To be honest, for a long time I have simply not been able to take in the unbearable truth that I somehow actually caused this collapse to occur. How could this be the case? I have dedicated the last 28 years of my life to the Spiritual upliftment of humanity, to the evolution of consciousness and culture. For so many years I thought of little else. So with all of this in place, how could I have caused this collapse to occur? As I have let this in, I have had to embrace both the truth and beauty of where we all went together and my own participation in the downfall that occurred two years ago.

Our Mission - The Emerging Sciences Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The phenomena of religion, spirituality, and mystical or transcendental experience have long been shrouded in mystery. From a scientific point of view, little is known about the biological or evolutionary implications of the religious instinct which has dominated the landscape of human life for at least the past 5,000 years.

Collective Ritual Invocation of an Integral Post-Metaphysical Spirituality, Joe Corbett

Collective Ritual Invocation of an Integral Post-Metaphysical Spirituality, Joe Corbett | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Newton gave us the laws of gravity which were then refined by Einstein's general theory of relativity, but there has not yet been a refinement of the Cartesian dualism between mind and matter. There is still a dichotomy in the debate between scientific materialism and its skeptics where either physical matter or consciousness is prioritized and then given supremacy of importance and origin over the other. But this is a false dichotomy precisely because there is in fact no clear distinction between mind and matter. For matter is not merely an inert object but is filled and surrounded with information, information about size, mass, charge, spin, momentum, etc., which is in constant exchange with other matter in the environment, matter that might even be said to “know” how to respond and interact according to a fixed set of forces and physical laws.

Recently, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella gave some shocking advice to a young businesswoman who was concerned that her male peers were passing her up for promotions: Don’t question the systemic sexism of corporate America, just trust in “good karma” to get you ahead. While his attitude made waves in the blogosphere, in fact it accurately represents a form of spirituality that is becoming popular in the West.

Dangerous emotions, liberating spirituality

Dangerous emotions, liberating spirituality | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Our emotions are often beautiful, but they can also be dangerous. They represent our spontaneity, and seem to speak to us of our freedom. And yet all contemporary studies — from neurology and psychology to marketing — prove that our emotions are the form of self-expression over which we have least control, that they are highly vulnerable and, basically, easily manipulated.
