New World New Mind: Moving Toward Conscious Evolution
There is no longer sufficient time to rely on the normal pace of cultural evolution to deal with today's dilemmas... Human beings have always been the most adaptable creatures on the planet, and they should be able to chart a new course for themselves. Some of that charting is already being done. The old mind today is being challenged and changed by many scattered efforts. Can we bring these efforts together to produce a large-scale program for a rapid "change of mind"? We know what the problem is. The "solution" is not simple--to generate the social and political will to move a program of conscious evolution to the top of the human agenda.
