Hermes Trismegistus (Thrice Great) and the Lost Wisdom of Humanity

In this and a number of future blogs, I will be considering how humanity has come to the point we are at today. It is a point that some have called our “evolutionary crossroads” as a species. How did our humankind get so out of balance, so materialistic, and so short-sighted in our thinking that we are now in an accelerated process of destroying ourselves and most of life on Earth? Most of this ongoing process has taken place over the last 2,000 years, and especially over the last few hundred years beginning with “Scientific Revolution” in the 16th Century with its...

The fact that ship will strike an iceberg and sink is inevitable, but to the Titanic passengers everything seems just fine until the very moment of impact.

The Evolution of Society

The question I am addressing in this week’s blog is; “What aspects of human development exist that can give us hope for positive change at this critical time in our history?” Humanity has of course made incredible scientific and technological progress over the past millennium, especially once the ‘Dark Ages’ in Europe ended and was  replaced by the Renaissance Enlightenment. The 1,000 year Dark Age began with the fall of Roman Empire beginning in the 4th Century while the Renaissance began in the 14th Century. Then came the Industrial Revolution beginning and...
