Avant-garde Brain Science

What do recent discoveries and current research and development in brain science and technology hold for us in the near, not so distant, future? Let’s say, in the next five or ten years, or even less?

Listen to Dr. Michio Kaku address the question in the course of introducing and promoting his latest book titled The Future of the Mind.  The information he shares sounds incredible to be true at times, but many of them are already here today as part of the ongoing human experience. As you follow his talk, bear in mind that this is science seemingly “reverse engineering” concepts of mind and consciousness, which we are familiar with in mysticism.

What did you think of his talk? Which points or ideas impressed you the most, from the perspectives of mystical knowledge and practice? Why? Do you think the future of humankind is going to be bright and sunny, thanks to brain science? Or do you see a dark, sinister and ill-foreboding future in store for mankind? Share you thoughts by commenting below.

If you liked his talk, please share this blog online with other people at social media and other Web sites, so they can be made aware of the coming future shock.

About Marc of Contemplative Pathways

Marc teaches contemplative meditation in the context of "contemporary mysticism" under the style of "Contemplative Pathways." His spiritual work is backed by a profound understanding of mystical teachings and the mystical life, that is rooted in fifty (50) years of personal study, practice and spiritual unfoldment (inner realization and spiritual experience).  In the course of his spiritual journey, he has received the gifts of mystical discernment and spiritual transmission. Marc has been conducting classes and meetings on contemporary mysticism and meditation at the San Francisco Bay Area for over fifteen years, usually in a classroom, lecture, seminar, workshop, online meeting, or group practice setting. He has facilitated study groups and workshops for centering/contemplative meditation practice meetings since the 1980s. Marc's teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in students through the process of spiritual transmission and mystical transformation.  He enables others to embark on the spiritual journey by understanding the Truth teaching and by living its principles in their daily lives. His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure, authentic mysticism.  Marc's approach to the subject of contemporary mysticism is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, transreligious, definitively unitive, and unequivocally nondualistic. Within the context of the great shift in consciousness presently occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work focuses on individual and collective spiritual instruction and transformation. He promotes the practice of contemplation or meditation as the vehicle for spiritual transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness. His other contributions to worldwide spiritual awakening and the global contemplative movement include spiritual mentoring, spiritual direction, and spiritual healing work. Marc is firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination. His brand of mysticism is the only true contemporary mysticism born of 21st century illumination and spirituality.
