  •  yeah, that's why we must become more conscious (1+ / 0-)

    As soon as humans figured out how to use fire as a tool, we began on the road to dominance.  Several millenia later, we now have rocket ships and nukes and oil tankers etc., but are still making choices based on limbic-system arousal.  

    Gore's new book is a kind of wake up call to us all to stop responding from the primitive limbic-system (fight or flight) and start using more of our neocortex (higher reasoning).

    So, this is it:  the big evolutionary leap in consciousness that will make or break the human race.  

    May all beings be free from fear.

    •  Yep, it's all about consciousnes, I hope he runs (0+ / 0-)

      I tried to get tickets when he came through northern California on his book tour but was too late. I haven't gotten his book yet. Sounds like you liked his new book I should get it sooner than later and make time to read it. It is a race between time and growing the scope of our consciousness individually and collectively on huge scale.

      Our economy sucks up our environment, people, and government. Redesign it at Beyond Political Center
