Choosing Revhumanism at the Dawning of the 5th World
This topic of the dawning of the Fifth World, and the global awakening to the Golden Age feels like the long-awaited crossroads that humanity has been expecting for millennia. This long-prophesied decision point has been visually depicted as a choice between two paths that is carved in stone on the Hopi Prophecy Rock near Oraibi, Arizona. The two options can be known by the names: Transhumanism and Revhumanism
Revhumanism is a philosophy of harmoniously living and co-creating with a living, developing Cosmos—with reverence for the Earth, and other beings. The Latin “rev” relates to ideas of reviving, regaining, recalling, and growing strong and young again. “Rev” also stands for reverence—a quality that inspires us to live up to our truly highest potential of seeing and respecting the inspiration, light, and consciousness that all of creation shares. Revhumanism invites humans to return to honoring the Earth as the source of life and sustenance.
SpaceTime is Dead
In a conversation we had recently for the International Mandela Effect Conference with Dr. Donald Hoffman
, I’m inspired to hear that he is noticing some scientists declaring that space-time is dead. On the face of it, this may not seem like such an important statement to make. And it might seem meaningless, or ridiculous, or impossible. To most material realists, that would indeed be the case.
Dr. Donald Hoffman is not the kind of scientist who believes that consciousness arises from neural activity, but rather he asserts it is very much the other way around. Space-time is dead precisely because the mathematics and science to support an assumption that all of reality is based on material matter is overly complicated, and inadequately elegant. Ever since the discovery of some new foundational mathematics involving geometry’s that we have yet to fully comprehend, we can see that there must exist some thing prior to what we know is space and time. The amplituhedron is evidence of a much more elegant mathematics and underlying physics to the cosmos.
Consciousness is Fundamental
Physicist Max Planck has been quoted as saying that you cannot get behind consciousness, and that consciousness if fundamental. When we start from such an understanding of reality, it becomes clear that this must be the case. Within this realm of consciousness, we know ourselves to be conscious agents. This idea of conscious agency is one we can experience every time we see a newborn baby's smile.
This idea of conscious agency can also give us a clue about where humans can next evolve. We are at across roads at this time when some people imagine taking their consciousness into some kind of electronic cloud where it can be transferred ad infinitum to an ultimately endless string of robotic artificial intelligence host vehicles. This notion of trans humanism casts some kind of seductive spell for many material realists. For those of us who have a sense of consciousness that exists before we are born and after we die, the idea of fundamental conscious agency presents breathtakingly positive possibilities for us all.
I feel a sense of connection, optimism, compassion and support when I greet the conscious agency that I feel in birds trees and other plants and animals. This past year I have made friends with a squirrel who has brought the best apples on the tree to me, and a gopher who is working on soil improvement programs in the garden. There is a scrub Jay who flies into my garden when I am outside, and sometimes rests on the closest tree branch next to me. When I lovingly care for redwood trees at the edge of my property on hot days, I feel a sense of love and connection between the trees and myself, and quite often weather patterns change. In some cases a dry spell ends, and much-needed rain arrives. These connections that I feel so closely in my heart seem to me to be a manager of one conscious agent recognizing another. Through such respectful connections and communications, I can feel the beginning of a new world.
For those seeking the science behind relationships of conscious agents, we are just now at the Dawn of this new golden age. Philosophers, mathematicians, physicist, and consciousness researchers have much to discuss. We can see the beckoning wonder of the amplituhedron, with its breathtakingly elegant mathematics.
