The Roots of Consciousness (#Q154)
NEW WORLD, NEW MIND
Robert Ornstein

Robert Ornstein, author of The Psychology of Consciousness, The Psychology of Meditation and The Evolution of Consciousness, points out that our brains evolved in a world very different from the civilization that we have created. Our minds are not well-equipped to deal with the slowly accumulating problems that are threatening us today -- such as pollution and population growth.
TOWARD A NEW PARADIGM OF THE UNCONSCIOUS
Stanislav Grof

In extraordinary circumstances, the human mind is capable of accessing information from anywhere in time or space, according to evidence provided by Stanislav Grof, M.D.. Author of Realms of the Human Unconscious, Dr. Grof is an innovative psychotherapist who has attempted to integrate the divergent schools of Freud, Jung and Reich with insights from the leading edge of contemporary physics and biology.
DETERMINISM, FREE WILL AND FATE
Arthur M. Young

Free will and purpose are not inconsistent with a universe subject to law. In fact, says Arthur Young, free will would be ineffective without a determinate world to act upon. Young, philosopher, inventor of the Bell helicopter and author of The Reflexive Universe, also discusses the difference between determinism--the belief that everything acts according to law--and pre-destination or fate.
PSYCHOLOGY OF RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE
Huston Smith

One of the most widely read writers in the field of philosophy and religion, Huston Smith's classic book The Religions of Man has sold over two million copies. In this stimulating program Dr. Smith discusses the relation between psychedelic experience and religious practice, the god within and the cultivation of psychic experiences within religious and shamanic traditions.

"A lantern may have a functioning light within it, but it may be coated with dust and soot to the point where that light does not shine through at all. So both things are true, but both need to be said in the same breath. Namely, I believe that it is true that in the final analysis we are divine and are God, but we should immediately acknowledge how caked and coated we are with dross that conceals that divinity, and it's, one's tempted to say, an endless quest to clean the surface, to let the light shine through."
--Huston Smith
