Ark of Awareness
The hull of the Ark of Awareness is composed of a living field of awareness generated by a symbiotic collection of awakened minds. The resulting capacity for awareness is greater than the sum total of the parts. A new collective entity is created with abilities that go far beyond those of a single individual.
This new awareness is grounded, tempered, instructed and expanded by science. No evidence based truth can be excluded and always our basic assumptions must be questioned and refined by observation, experience and experiment.
The hope of mankind is in its ability to recover and regenerate itself through new more appropriate behavior, with the full realization that civilization as we know it stands on the brink of obliteration. The mythological Phoenix bird that burns and is able to regenerate itself from its ashes is a perfect metaphor for mankindís ability to transform and recreate itself after great calamity and destruction. Mankind has been through so many cycles of success followed by ruination followed by arising again from the ashes. Individual people experience this same cycle in their personal lives. The neuroscientists use the term neuroplasticity to indicate this ability of humans to learn, change and transform over a lifetime.
