Make no mistake about it; there is a growing community of ‘awakening’ people are who engaged in a core dialogue about what it means to be human at the start of the 21st Century.
This awakening is a natural evolution for human consciousness and is composed of two overarching parts.
The ‘Redesigning Society’ series will capture a range of expert perspectives on the current state of societal affairs, as well as the collective changes we desperately need both philosophically and practically. It also aims to amplify mainstream engagement in conversations about how we should globally move forward, for ourselves and our future generations.
Make no mistake about it; there is a growing community of ‘awakening’ people are who engaged in a core dialogue about what it means to be human at the start of the 21st Century. This awakening is a natural evolution for human consciousness and is composed of two overarching parts.
First is a deep realisation of the innate interdependence we have with the entirety of reality, regardless if we look at it through the lenses of ecology, quantum physics or spirituality. The second is recognising the social and systemic dysfunction that requires collective action to be transcended by redesigning our society to reflect the new era that humanity is adventuring into.
A collective awakening, driven by individual awakenings, has been a long time in the making. Inspiringly we are becoming increasingly closer to the tipping point for a society which has disconnected from the dominant worldviews and has awakened to their ‘connection-through-consciousness’ and the need for serious social change. The tipping point is estimated to be between 10 and 20% of the population; think of it like a fad that quickly grips the collective mindset, such as a particular fashion.
Once the required threshold is reached, it is inevitable for the masses to become aware of these ‘truths’ no matter how conditioned into mainstream ‘beliefs’ they might currently be.
The reality is that throughout the uniting global culture, which is a natural manifestation of modern day society, individuals are increasingly moving one of two ways. They are either opening up to the interconnection of life, including with Mother Earth and every person on her, or they’re going further into the depths of a disconnected and meaningless world.
However many are stuck in the middle, mostly due to the ‘scientism’ that has damaged our collective philosophical health. Unsurprisingly the data accumulating from the quantum sciences is increasingly making it clearer that the rebirth of this ancient wisdom and tribal philosophy is a rational and evidence-based path for our future.
Once this meta-paradigm is embraced on a planetary scale it will impact our value systems at a fundamental level because it will revolutionise how we collectively respect each other and our natural systems. This understanding is also important for the health and sanity of the individual because without it, the issues that plague our beautiful existence can become a little overwhelming – both emotionally and psychologically – especially when we don’t contextualise them into this more holistic picture.
One of the biggest issues faced by humanity, most prominently in the Western World, is being virtually enslaved to dysfunctional and unhealthy theories and practices. These systems have been amplified by a hidden aristocracy, or ‘shadow-government’, who are the real power brokers of our world. This can be hard to accept, but true nevertheless.
Yet due to the instantaneous sharing of information across our globe, for the first time in the known history of humanity we can unite the people of earth to achieve a common goal: we the people, not the elite, will control our own destiny. Since humanity’s conception there has always been an ‘empire’ that has controlled the paths that we collectively forge, but now so many grass roots movements have emerged in response to the unhealthy and superficial ‘programs’ that we’ve been conditioned into since birth and are making slow but positive change in a wide array of areas for our future.
The beautiful truth is that more and more people are disconnecting from the false truths which permeate our ‘accepted’ views of existence. These delusions have been spread like wildfire through the corporate owned-and-controlled mainstream media but their reign is ending because of a greater accessibility to information that is more closely aligned with the truth. This has been a direct result of the technological and digital revolutions, as well as the rise of alternative media.
Of course many of the worldviews or beliefs heralded by the conventional channels have a lot truth woven through them, which is partly why they’re so convincing. However, as previously alluded, the most pervading and damaging deception is the unwise and dogmatic philosophy of a purely mechanical and material universe which has been ‘unscientifically’ adopted by the academic and scientific establishments. This ‘false assumption’ is a metaphysics because it attempts to explain the fundamental nature of existence, however it has infiltrated Western value systems and produced unhealthy individual, social and environmental impacts as a result.
It’s also what is omitted from these ‘modern-day fairy tales’ which can be the most harmful, such as the information which is avoided to maintain the status quo. Plus, when we’re born into a world where the majority of people uncritically accept what is being said in their papers and on their screens, it is uncomplicated to understand why the masses have unconsciously fallen so easily into this trap.
There are several principal ideologies, among other sub-divisions, which have maintained hegemony over the collective consciousness during the last millennia. Chronologically they occurred as religion, individualism, materialism and consumerism, all of which have exceedingly amplified a collective disconnection from nature.
Obviously these ideologies have some associated goodness; however, the masses have been conditioned to thoughtlessly accept them which has resulted with toxic levels of intolerance, hatred, greed, selfishness, isolation, competition, aggression, dishonesty, cruelty, laziness, obsession and vanity, among many others. There is also a widening wealth inequality gap with so many people continuing to suffer from socio-economic disadvantage such as ill-health, poverty and homelessness.
But finally, for the benefit of our species and our planet, these paradigms of mental and behavioural control are cracking through their weaknesses and elucidating right before our rational minds and intuitive hearts. This is definitely emerging as the most inspiring, empowering and enlightening time to be alive on planet earth.
The Topics and Experts
What follows are some of the topics that need greater attention in our mainstream conversations to assist humanity’s inevitable awakening to the innate entanglement, symbolism and sentience of reality, as well as some of the systemic change needed to reflect this new era. This project is an evolving process, so they’ll also be a few surprises along the way too.
In addition, it’s important to note that each individual guest explicitly advocates for their opinion only and therefore does not necessarily agree with all of the views of the project’s author or any other guest.
For more information, please check out the introductory video presentation at the end of this article.
Redesigning Society packages together a plethora of specialist information which is essential to enter into mainstream thought and dialogue. It is not intended to be ‘blindly believed’ by its audience; instead it is devised as a platform for its participants to launch into their own robust research and analysis, as well as spark healthy and productive debate among family, friends and peers, especially with those who have not yet been exposed to this type of discussion.
It's also designed to 'capture' the dialogue occurring in the progressive community for how we should collectively move forward from here.
In addition, the project strongly encourages people to comprehensively sift through the lies, manipulation and propaganda that plague the mainstream media and the stories they tell. It is of our belief that everybody deserves that freedom and clarity of mind.
Furthermore, the rabbit hole goes much deeper than what will be discussed here; however this series is intended as a means to challenge those who ‘believe’ the mainstream worldview in a way which isn’t too confronting to comprehend.
Please subscribe to ‘The Conscious Society’ YouTube Channel and share these articles and videos through your social media platforms. If you can take the time to write a comment regarding what these articles and videos are about, it will also improve social media engagement with your peers.
How far this series reaches will be entirely up to our audience, so a big thanks to everyone who participates throughout this ride. We promise it’s not just going to be informative, but enjoyable too.
UPDATE March 2016: Most of the above guests have been interviewed and uploaded to 'The Conscious Society' Channel.
