What I found surprising, but amazingly insightful, was his gradual evolution into "expanded consciousness." We normally think of a physicist as dealing with physical aspects of existence, and not what feels like the "spiritual" domain. Yet, he links them in a way that's clear and supportable. And he illustrates how the changes that are now happening in the world follow the trends he sees.
The new book, "Sustainability: A Personal Journey to a Built Sustainable Community ... and An Amazing Picture of What Life Will Soon Be Like," fits with everything Laszlo explains and foresees ... then adds it's own aspects for translating trends cited by Laszlo and others into what each of us can do - food, clothing, shelter basics - to sustain ... to make it through what will be a difficult transition and enjoy an entirely new style of living ... "sustainable living" ... that will actually be better than anything we've experienced before.
Dr. Laszlo's book is a primer - a "must read" foundation for understanding the changes that are upon us.
Ironically, yet in keeping with his basic premise that initial conditions can never determine a final fractal result, by the time he spoke to the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1973, the seagull had evolved into a butterfly. Not to ignore that the title of Lorenz's speech itself had transformed into "Predictability: Does the Flap of a Butterfly's Wings in Brazil set off a Tornado in Texas?" In brief, the implication of the butterfly effect is that with complex systems such as consciousness within human beings today, with so many unknown variables like our use of weapons of mass manufacturing and destruction, our future world condition is impossible to predict. We can see trends now that are ominous but not the outcomes in advance. And indeed if anything gives me hope today, it is the fact that no fixed futures exist for anything. Read this book --and others like it -- to understand why Terence McKenna projected 2012--December 21, to be exact -- is beyond a doubt the transformation, or "chaos point," in human history, as I do and systems theorist Dr. Laszlo.
In a nutshell, is this why Mayan shamans defined 2012 as the bifurcation of human beings into "galactic human butterflies," the reborn children of the cosmos? Could this idea have something in common with the End-Time "rapture" scenario of the fundamentalists in religions so diverse as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam? You bet it does and I have written and spoken about those similarities extensively for many, many years and am so pleased to see folks like you come to this truth too!!!
Dr. John Jay Harper is author of Tranceformers: Shamans of the 21st Century and the DVD Science of Soul: The End-Time Solar Cycle of Chaos in 2012 A.D.
