Higher Horizons: Three Views

Some speak of “higher consciousness.” Or higher human possibility. Here are three areas and information from professionals who explored them. It is up to us to decide about validity. Interesting that qualities of everyday creative living may assist on such paths. Evolution has manifested a series of major emergences over time. Might there be other emergences forthcoming, even during our lifetimes? Significant that academia is taking more interest, e.g., through consciousness studies, and that spiritual disciplines are exploring related sciences, e.g., H.H. the Dalai Lama. Rigorous publications are bridging earlier gaps. We can learn by creative openness aligned with scientific rigor. This also brings hope in our world: As Einstein said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
