Creating a future during an age of extinction requires changing ourselves profoundly. Any person joining a movement to change the future must also deeply examine themselves. Changing yourself is not for everyone but it is for the five percent of humanity on a journey to evolve. There are 400 million people in every region on Earth and we are not another generation just passing through this world like every previous generation either. We are an emerging new humanity who can create the future of humanity.

The task that is great seems daunting until you look around and see our whole world has changed overnight. Rather than sit on the fence paralyzed by doubt, our time to write a new human story is now right in front of us.

The pandemic sweeping today’s world has set in motion the final chapter of a global civilization no one can reverse because the Earth herself is rebalancing. People may want to believe everything will be normal just around the corner, but the human race is not going to return to its unsustainable production and consumption obsession. Like other great civilizations that slowly degraded and perished, the United States is among the many nations that are fracturing, fraying and winding down today.

During an age of extinction, it is the new humanity that can create the future of humanity.

No disrespect is meant to the person who assumed recovery was just around the corner. I know it is hard to imagine that humanity cannot end the pandemic and then repair some of the worst functions of our unsustainable society. But returning to normal is not in the cards.

Consider the top 1 percent of society. The top of our world has surpassed the combined wealth of the bottom 80 percent of our world’s population. With a minimalist conception of government with a dereliction of civic duties and mutual obligations, the sources of capital have lost the wisdom to reform an unsustainable economy in freefall whose population has exceeded its load limit on the planet. .

A new generation is called to cut the Gordian knot on the human condition and create a new way of living on Earth. The hope for humanity is found in a completely new field of possibilities.

A large global family is living in every region of the world at the present time. We have been quietly reflecting on the state of humanity for decades. We share a spiritual outlook. 

We honor nature’s intelligence. We possess a vast collective understanding about the soil, water, desert reclamation, biochar, mycelium, permaculture, biodynamic farming, holistic energy medicines, Earth Whispering and breakthrough technologies that exist in inventor basements that would change the human experience with free energy and other discoveries.

Among us is the complete know how for evolutionary building, based on whole system solutions. We are simply the best group on Earth to replace humanity’s entire, unsustainable way of building with a new way of living.

We will build a new living showcase high on a hill where a despairing, worried public could see with their own eyes how people can collaborate and respect without blame and finger pointing. In a time of social collapse, we can create a new living showcase where energy is free, food is nutritious, building materials are green, and holistic health and wellbeing practices navigate disease and pandemics into a post pandemic healthy, thriving era. 

Energy medicines new to the world would be available. New living homes would be affordable, practical, durable, and inspiring. As our global civilization slowly figures it out that humanity is in an age of extinction, a new human Earth accord can emerge showing the way for the people who want to live and thrive from a new living nation for the future of humanity.

Changing yourself is not for everyone. It is for the individual who wants to check their own negative egos, stop their blame and finger pointing and be the change that transforms the future themselves. We don’t have to change them. Humanity will follow this path to the future when each person is ready to change themselves.

BruceChaos1The Truth about ‘Chaos’

If you have watched the news lately, browsed the web, or even looked out the window, you may have noticed that something is going on. In the face of economic upheaval, religious violence, racial bloodshed, climate change and now, a viral pandemic, civilization is in a state of upheaval. The globe is enveloped in chaos.

Chaos? That sounds pretty scary! The reason is that most people confuse the word chaos with the word random. Random simply means the outcome or result of a process occurs simply by “chance.” In contrast, the opposite of random is the word determined, which means the outcome of a process can be predicted by understanding a sequence of cause and effect events.

BUT WAIT! Fact: Chaos is not random!

Chaos is actually a special case of determinism. While the outcome of a chaotic process is indeed determined, the number of inputs contributing to the process is so great, that it is mathematically impossible to calculate all of the data to predict what will inevitably result. Remember the story of the butterfly effect; in which a butterfly that flaps its wings in South America influences a storm in North America?

The weather is an example of chaos. You could make a totally accurate prediction of what the weather will be at twelve-noon on Monday in Paris … but one would first have to calculate the flapping wings of every butterfly and every other insect around the world, as well as measure every breeze on the planet, and a myriad of other contributing factors. Theoretically, the collective data would be able to make an accurate prediction of weather at every spot on the globe. The problem is that it is impossible to record all of the data necessary for that accuracy. So, weather prediction, using only a small data set, would not provide an accurate prediction but would represent more of a ‘probable’ prediction.

In regard to the current global chaos, the influence of human behavior has undermined the web of life and precipitated the planet’s Sixth Mass Extinction event. Is the current chaos expressing civilization’s end or is it signaling a new beginning for civilization?

Stepping into A New Phase of Civilization

Surprise! Nature is an expression of fractal geometry, the science that emphasizes the principle of “As above, so below.” Getting to the point, the evolution of human civilization is an expression of a fractal, self-similar, image of vertebrate evolution; the pattern of evolution that went from fish to amphibians, to reptiles, birds, and finally, mammals. Human civilization has completed the first four stages and is on the threshold of manifesting the fifth level, the ‘mammalian’ version of our evolution. The earliest version of civilization represented the ‘fish’ phase, a time when the lives of the early people were tied to the proximity of water, living off the fruits of the sea and traveling the planet from coast to coast.

Once humans developed the ability to dig wells and use viaducts to control the availability of water, they were able to move on to the land and generate agriculture. This was the equivalent of the ‘amphibian’ phase of human evolution, starting at the water and moving onto land. The introduction of technology pushed humanity to the next higher level of civilization’s evolution, its ‘reptilian’ phase. Reptiles, from lizards to dinosaurs, move and behave as powerful, Earth-bound digital ‘machines.’ When humans entered the industrial age, civilization advanced beyond agriculture and created a mechanized civilization. Interestingly, the ‘blood’ of the dinosaurs, oil, is the fuel that powers our ‘reptilian’ civilization.

In 1902, the industrial revolution enabled the Wright brothers to manifest human flight in North Carolina, an event that birthed the ‘bird’ phase of civilization. Civilization’s ‘bird’ phase culminated when humans landed on the Moon in 1969. The event was marked by the astronauts’ picture of the distant blue-green planet Earth on the Moon’s horizon.

This one photograph changed human civilization and launched the Earth Day movement, a time of Hippies and a time when people began to consciously recognize that we must take care of the children, the oceans, the lands and the air … a focus on nurturing Nature. It is not a coincidence that the character of mammals is that they are, by definition, ‘nurturers.’ The moon landing, the fullest evolution of the ‘bird’ phase, precipitated the evolution of the ‘mammalian’ phase of civilization.

Opportunity for a New Beginning

The current global chaos is a symptom of the pending mass extinction event. It is an expression of an inherent fractal pattern, in which Nature is informing us that our destructive ‘reptilian’ phase of exploiting Nature must come to an end. It is necessary that the ‘reptilian’ dinosaurs, the corporations that control government, stop desecrating Mother Nature for profits. It is time for us to collectively evolve to a higher level of consciousness and adopt the indigenous people’s insight as being ‘gardeners’ that nurture the planet. Nature is now calling us to adopt our ‘mammalian’ character as nurturers.

So where are we at the current moment? The most important point we must recognize is that the current chaos is not a ‘random’ character; it is an expression of an unfolding predetermined pattern. We are observing the collapse of the current destructive ‘reptilian’ civilization while simultaneously seeing the rise of the new, nurturing ‘mammalian’ culture.

The important conclusion of this communication is that the planetary upheaval we are now experiencing is not an ending, but a new beginning, offering an opportunity to birth a new, healthy, sustainable civilization. Employing an understanding of Nature’s inherent fractal pattern will enable human beings to create a social structure that will nurture the planet and its web of life, an evolutionary uprising that will ensure all of life has a chance to thrive into the future.

The conclusion is simple: Don’t focus on the structures that are collapsing. It is time to direct our intentions and our efforts in supporting the rise of a holistic, healthy and harmonious new civilization!

Humanity is set to face a rare convergence of three massive cycles of change. In this episode, Gregg Braden guides us through the evidence, which charts the simultaneous peaking of economic, human conflict and solar cycles. The rise and fall in each of these cycles holds major implications for our civilization. As all three cycles are beginning to peak, a new story about humanity emerges. For us to understand how this story will unfold, we must first take an honest look at who we really are and where we came from.

What would a fast, coordinated, collective response to climate change look like?

The coronavirus has transformed everyday life so significantly that the effects are already visible from space. In China, where hundreds of millions of people were quarantined to help stop the spread of the disease, before-and-after satellite photos show pollution disappearing as work came to a standstill. In the U.S., as the number of coronavirus cases has grown quickly, companies are asking employees to work from home and canceling conferences. Schools are canceling classes. In Italy, another massive quarantine is underway. The changes have been sudden, driven by widespread recognition that it’s a public health emergency—and, although the window of opportunity may have already closed, a chance to prevent another deadly disease like the flu from becoming a permanent, ongoing problem.

The scale of the response raises another question: What would it look like if the world responded to the climate crisis with a similar sense of urgency? The coronavirus response might not have been as fast as it should have been; if the Chinese government had acted faster, the virus might not have spread to other countries. And the Chinese government’s authoritarian tactics shouldn’t—and couldn’t—be emulated in large parts of the rest of the world. But in countries around the world, governments and citizens have been quick to change daily habits. The same hasn’t happened for the climate crisis.

“We’ve seen that governments can act, and people can change their behavior, in a very short amount of time,” says May Boeve, executive director of the climate advocacy group 350.org. “And that’s exactly what the climate movement has been asking governments and people to do for years in the face of a different kind of threat—the climate crisis—and we don’t see commensurate action. On the one hand, it shows that it’s possible to do this, and it’s possible for this kind of mobilization of resources to take place in a short amount of time. In that sense, that’s encouraging. But we were never in doubt of that aspect.” Instead, she says, it was a question of whether there was political will for rapid change.

There are similarities between the situations—in both cases, the scientific community is offering clear warnings about what to do. Both involve public health. Climate change is already killing people in extreme heat waves and other disasters; it’s also worsening food and water shortages and it will displace hundreds of millions of people. The same pollutants that contribute heavily to climate change also cause air pollution that kills millions of people each year. Diseases like malaria and dengue fever are likely to spread as mosquitoes move into new regions. And as with coronavirus, people living in areas with the fewest resources are being impacted most by climate change. “Climate change also affects the most vulnerable first and worst,” says Boeve. “So we see that pattern play out as well, and how this is unfolding and how the response is and is not responding to that inequity and impact.”

If the world was responding to climate change like it’s responding to the coronavirus—the level of urgency that the science says is necessary—things would look dramatically different. “We would see a lot of different things happening all at the same time,” says Boeve.

Governments would come up with the funds to build the infrastructure needed to fully roll out renewable energy. “It’s cheap enough and available, but the regulatory systems that would enable people everywhere to get clean energy would require massive government investment,” she says. “We would see these kinds of emergency packages that would get people off of the fossil fuel grid and onto a clean grid right away.”

After wildfires and extreme floods, relief packages would acknowledge the role of climate. In cities, development rules would change to require low-carbon construction. Farms would shift to regenerative agriculture. Just as the airline industry is struggling because of the coronavirus, some industries would see real impacts. “We probably wouldn’t still have an oil and coal and gas industry that was thriving in our economy,” says Boeve. We would have to find ways to support the workers from those industries, as well.

“It’s a whole bunch of different things, which could all happen quite quickly, because we do actually know what needs to happen,” she says. “And that’s the amazing thing. But the shift in which, and this is what’s so interesting about what’s unfolding with a public health emergency is that I think there’s a trust in the public health community to say, these are the measures we need you to put in place right now. They’re ready to go and policymakers are acting. And the same thing is true with climate change. We’ve got those policies, they’ve been drafted. They’ve been waiting to be enacted.”

A growing number of cities and countries have formally declared a climate emergency. Some are acting more quickly than others. But the overall mobilization looks nothing like the response to the coronavirus. In part, that’s because climate change still seems like a somewhat distant problem, despite the growing number of climate-related disasters that happen every year. Another obvious challenge: In the climate crisis, powerful companies have a lot to lose if the world acts decisively, and with the virus, though many people are losing money, there’s no similarly massive opposition to trying to address the problem.

“The entrenched power and staying with the status quo is what differentiates climate change from this particular crisis,” says Boeve. “That is something that a lot of people are working on, and that is changing. It’s becoming more and more hard politically to justify taking donations of fossil fuel companies, for example. That is starting to shift.”

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????By Angela Levesque

We need a broader view of climate change. Part of our problem is we have reduced everything down to a string of data, giving measurable, quantitative numbers and present it along with the message of urgency and sacrifice. The problem is, that numbers don’t move people to change. Narratives of futility don’t either. We need to shift the conversation from, “Nothing can be done” to “What can I do and what can we do together as a community and as a country?” It is time to move beyond our instinctual and reactionary behaviors that are products of an Old World, mechanistic system, and shift our thinking and the conversation we are currently having around climate change. This requires an individual shift in consciousness through the development of our personal self-awareness and understanding of our enculturation. As well as a global shift through awareness of the unified field.

Defining Consciousness

From a psychological perspective consciousness is the awareness of our internal responses i.e. our thoughts, feelings and sensations to an external experience. This experience is then furthered through the field of neuroscience; where a materialist view explains how brain activity and the interactions of neurons, give rise to that psychological experience. In this paradigm, communication and information are a linear expression of space/time. Defining consciousness in this way helps us understand how the mind and body interact to create our material, sensory experience. This helps us address some of the patterns of consumption and habits and gives us real world tools on how to change them. Read more…
