Matter And Consciousness: Shifting The Metaparadigm - Peter Russell, D.C.S. - ND3537

Russell explains the difference between a paradigm and a metaparadigm and why consciousness cannot be explained within our current systems. He describes how all of life, and the universe as a whole, has the capacity for consciousness. His insight into the essence of “I am” points to how our seeking is actually obstructing our natural state of contentment. Peter Russell, D.C.S. is an author and meditation teacher focusing on consciousness and spirituality. His studies include theoretical physics, mathematics, experimental psychology, and computer science. His principal interest is the deeper, spiritual significance of the times we are passing through. His work seeks to distill the essence of the world’s spiritual traditions and present them in ways relevant to current times. In 1982, with his bestseller of the same name, he coined the term “global brain” and predicted the Internet and the impact it would have on our culture. His many books include: Waking Up in Time: Finding Inner Peace in Times of Accelerating Change (Origin Press 1992), The Global Brain (3rd Edition, Floris Books 2008), From Science to God: A Physicist’s Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness (New World Library 2001) and The Brain Book: Know Your Own Mind and How to Use It (Routledge and Kegan Paul 1979).Interview Date: 2/10/2015     Tags: Peter Russell, paradigm, metaparadigm, matter, consciousness, self-awareness, self-aware, awareness, mind, Copernicus, Descartes, brain, mind, recognition, essence of the universe, panpsychism, I am, effortless being, Science, Spirituality, Philosophy
