From Rivalry and Separateness to Collaboration and Connectedness

Whatever the cause, there seems to be an emerging human understanding of our ability and need to intentionally participate in the continued evolution of our consciousness. The expansion towards more integrated and eco-centric ways of being is not a return to premodernism, nor is it the extreme relativism (and nihilism) of post-modernism. Instead, it is an expansion beyond the anthropocentric self that transcends but includes previous ways of being.

Fundamentally, this is a transition from the rivalry and separateness of our current finite paradigms towards a way of being that embodies a depth of collaboration and connectedness characteristic of ecological ongoingness. This, I believe, is the demand history is placing on humans, and by corollary, education.
