Harmonizing Evolutionary Convergence

Writings 2020

To start the year, Maurizio Benazzo, co-founder of the Science and Nonduality Conference (SAND), invited me to write an article for its website, which I titled Unifying all opposites in Wholeness, which was not published in either the original or revised version.

The reason for the rejection became crystal clear the next month when I read On the Mystery of Being: Contemporary Insights on the Convergence of Science and Spirituality, which Maurizio introduced and edited with his wife Zaya. They say in the Introduction, “we can never understand, but only surrender to the mystery we call life.” This is not true in my experience. So, in March 2020, I wrote a 16-page article titled ‘Demystifying the Mystery of Being’.

This also was the time that the great existential crisis in society intensified with the Covid-19 pandemic, causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, so far, and the collapse of the global economy. Not only this. The reduction in industrial activity was also leading to a reduction in the aerosol masking effect, also known a global dimming, with significant effects on abrupt climate change and hence on near-term human extinction.

These events showed my quite clearly that completing the final revolution in science no longer has any relevance, with or without the support of organizations such as SAND and the Galileo Commission, from which I have now resigned as an adviser.

Accordingly, I have written three reflective pieces on my life so far, titled ‘My Quest for Oceanic Ecstasy’, ‘Viewing the Global Crisis with Self-reflective Intelligence’, and ‘Being a Panosopher’, written to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of evolution changing from the horizontal to the vertical dimension in time within me.
