Some five thousand years ago, at the dawn of history and the birth of the first civilizations, a deep split opened up between East and West. The worldview that governs science, medicine, education, and business today was established in the Western mind when Babylonians in Mesopotamia began to map the skies, unhindered by the light pollution most of us suffer from today. In contrast, Rishis in the Indus Valley, who wrote the Upanishads, discovered a quite different Universe by looking inwards.
We in the West urgently need to adopt their mystical worldview in order to live in harmony with the fundamental laws of the Universe, free of our deluded minds. This is much more than a paradigm change or shift that scientific revolutionaries are working with today. We need to experience a total contextual inversion, recognizing that Consciousness provides the Cosmic Context and Gnostic Foundation for all our lives, encapsulated in the beautiful Sanskrit word Satchidananda ‘Bliss of Absolute Truth and Consciousness’.
This contextual inversion is quite different from the transformation of the geocentric worldview into the heliocentric worldview in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. For it is not something that can be debated and argued about with the intellect. There is no war of worldviews, as some are arguing today, for we know that Consciousness is all there is with Absolute Certainty.
In essence, what we are doing within the Alliance is expressing the ancient wisdom that underlies all the religions in the language of information systems architects in business, a language that has evolved from mathematical logic, computer science, and David Bohm’s theory of the implicate order, which unifies quantum and relativity theories.
This ancient wisdom was known as prisca sapientia during the Humanist Renaissance, which much influenced Isaac Newton’s alchemical, theological, and chronological studies, and which Gottfried Leibniz called philosophia perennis, made popular in Aldous Huxley’s anthology The Perennial Philosophy.
