Ken Wilber -

Jurriaan Kamp interviews Ken Wilber in Ode Magazine this month.   Wilber believes there is " remarkably consistent story of the evolution of consciousness."   The flow is from "me" to "us" to "all of us."   Each stage "transcends and includes"; "the new level goes beyond the preceding one, yet still includes and embraces its values."

"Wilber compares the process to a cell that transcends but includes molecules, which in turn transcend but include atoms.  "To say that molecules go beyond atoms is not to say that molecules hate atoms," he writes, "but that they love them: They embrace them in their own makeup."

It seems the catch is to learn to communicate between the different groups, and so that is where he works. 

He says:  "Take a wide view.  Why are human beings here?  Not just for greed and ambition.  Try to expand what you think we are doing here.  What are you doing with your life?  How can you refresh your own vision? Look inside, and hopefully you are not disappointed about what you find."
