Chapter 6

A new form of participatory consciousness has been emerging through our increased interconnectivity and global intercommunication. This is a distributed model that connects people horizontally in a more egalitarian way rather than through top-down structures. It catalyzes people into becoming more active through their participation. No longer do we have to remain the passive audience, as during the earlier communication revolutions of radio and television. The new model already with us is blogging, mobile phone text messaging, social networking, and engaging in similar forms of distributed social media. The dialogue is now shifting into a more active domain where people are putting themselves onstage and orchestrating their own connections, presence, and self-expression. At the dawn of the Akashic Age the civil body of the planet will really begin to grow and stretch its tentacles.

Social networks--both physical and virtual--have matured tremendously over recent years, with the list of global Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) growing longer, and stronger, with each passing year. These innovative networks are the forums for visionary thinkers, where new ideas and concepts can spread virally through the communications-based nervous system of the planet.

The new civil body joining the distributed contributions of individuals worldwide is set to become a major feature of an integrated planetary society. With talks being broadcast regularly online and through access to an array of innovative lectures and social forums, people can be actively influenced and alternative thinking and ideas can be stimulated. A more mature form of collective social intelligence can begin to emerge in various parts of the globe. Indeed, we envision that civil society, which is the largest movement in history, will grow to become more dominant and influential in transforming our societies. To belong to this diverse and yet unified family is not only a responsibility, it is also a blessing.

Externally we may seem to be a vast, distant, and separated collection of people, yet reality is just the opposite. The reality is that we form a dense, intimate, closely entwined species of various races, sharing a nonlocal sense of being. Younger generations of people worldwide are growing up with a new expression of consciousness. Younger people are increasingly more comfortable in expressing themselves with strangers, and many of them explore and express their inner thoughts, feelings, emotions, and ideas with hundreds of unknown persons online, from various cultural backgrounds. More and more daily interactions are empathic as people share news, stories, and emotional impacts from sources around the world.

Empathy is becoming one of the core values by which we create and sustain social life. Exposure to impacts outside of our own narrow environment will help us to achieve tolerance. We are living with experiences that are richer and more complex, full of ambiguities, multiple realities, and shared perceptions.

Trillions of online friendships have already been formed, and this trend is likely to increase. Every day online social networks create thousands of friendships even across conflicting religions and regions. The online worlds of social networking are often fueled by genuine empathy and a spirit of sharing. Around the world an hour of video is now uploaded every second; we are collectively generating more content than ever before in the history of civilization. The years ahead can foster these social networks into principal channels of communication whereby individuals can gain almost instant access to news occurring in other areas around the world, bypassing traditional modes of mainstream media news.

On August 4, 2010, Google CEO Eric Schmidt said that every two days we are now creating as much information “as we did from the dawn of civilization up until 2003” and that by 2013 that quantity of information will be created every ten minutes. Most of this is usergenerated content, material that people have created themselves and contributed to the world. It is estimated that more than 68 million users share content every day. As an example of the figures involved, more video is uploaded to YouTube every six months than was produced by the three major U.S. TV networks in the past 60 years.

What is emerging is an incredible global platform for sharing, in large part free of commercial goals. All of this makes for a stupendous platform for connecting ideas and content, with very little personal investment in skills and finance. This collaborative and participatory world of online content could become a global commons that reinforces a sense of local identity while connecting people in all parts of the globe. This outreach of connectivity has the power and the potential to break down old perceptual paradigms of duality--the “us” and “them”--that have been exploited by governments and ruling authorities to serve their own goals of control and conquest.

The younger generations are accustomed to sending and receiveing information in a way that could nourish local networks rather than replace them. This can stimulate increasing numbers of young people from many nations to become involved in community and social projects and with NGOs--for example, by taking a year out to help in another culture abroad, to learn and experience, and to offer assistance. The model that the Internet and other distributed communications represent is a bottom-up, horizontal medium for spreading awareness, information, and contact. It is horizontal in that it bypasses the old model of top-down, hierarchical control structures that have been so strongly in place in recent history. If it is to truly become an effective new model for the Akashic Age, this horizontal model of distributed connectivity needs to grow and develop beyond the virtual world into the physical world. It must be able to transform how we do things daily in our communities and immediate environments. The applications of the model need to cross-fertilize so that our technologies of global connectivity can enhance and enrich our lives, friendships, and connections.

Revue de presse

“In this remarkable book Laszlo and Dennis have done nothing less than draw the blueprint for a planetary society. The Akashic Age is the logical successor to both the Industrial Revolution and the Information Era, because it is based on a paradigm of connectedness not separation, of sustainability not exploitation, and of transformation not inertia. It serves as a healthy antidote to the doom and gloom found in most other books about humankind’s future and warns that a positive transition and a better world will require deliberate effort, conscious deliberation, and hard work. Given the alternatives, readers of Dawn of the Akashic Age may decide that the required love and labor will be worth it.” (Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., professor of psychology at Saybrook University and coauthor of The Voice of)

“It’s refreshing to read about efforts to revive old-fashioned homesteading skills alongside praise for technological advances like social networking and crowd sourcing. Several guest contributors—including biodynamic entrepreneur Marco Roveda, leadership expert Jefferson Cann and activist/author Charles Eisenstein—round out this idealistic manifesto with expertise on a variety of subjects.” (Publishers Weekly, May 2013)

“In this book the writers go beyond this connected consciousness to the connection of all people in the world in their values, beliefs and actions. The dawn of this akashic age is seen all around us, in the Occupy Movement and locally in our sustainability, farmers markets and cooperative actions. To bring this new world to fruition we each need to be involved and play our diverse parts. Laszlo and Dennis’s vision provides us with great hope and direction.” (Nicholas E. Brink Ph.D., author of the Power of Ecstatic Trance)

“Let it be said that a book has now been written about our future, a book that we ignore at our peril. This inspiring book is the alarm clock that can stir us from our slumber.” (Larry Dossey, M.D., author of One Mind and Healing Words and former executive editor of Alternative)

Dawn of the Akashic Age is full of riveting ideas about the great evolutionary leap now facing humanity, but that is not what distinguishes this book. It is the masterful orchestration of leading-edge thinking into full symphonic resonance that sets it apart as a classic. It defines a new pinnacle of coherence in mapping our utter transformation as an evolved planetary species.” (James O’Dea, author of Cultivating Peace, former president of the Institute of Noetic Sciences)

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Superb Appetizer Book -- a Potpourri of Genius -- Not the Main Plate 27 décembre 2013
Par Robert David STEELE Vivas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Buy and read this book for a marvelous panoramic view of the latest thinking circling around the end of the top-down scarcity model that concentrates wealth, and the emergence -- sooner than most might expect -- of the distributed bottom-up local to global harmonization.

This is a hybrid book -- the first two thirds are written by the co-authors (Laszlo and Dennis), while the last third is a collection of eleven very short essays, each generally provocative and each providing me with at least one insight, web site, or book that I was not aware of. The book ends with recommended readings in the following categories that are a also a summary of what the book strives to cover at a very high level:

Global Transformation
New Consciousness
New Economics
State of the World
World Futures

Among many other thoughts that this book inspired as I went through it, it helped me better appreciate the life's work of Dr. Laszlo, and to take a closer look at his GIorano Bruno GlobalShift University.

I give the book four stars instead of five because it is not completely coherent and it is an appetizer sort of book, not the main plate. It talks around the core challenges, lacks a holistic analytic model, and includes some dated ideas. For example, too much is made of massive open online courses (MOOC), which only have a 4% completion rate, and there is no awareness of the idea put forward by Earth Intelligence Network to Sir Richard Branson, of a global network that can educate the five billion poor one cell call at a time. The book also lacks a grasp of where information technology is going at a technical level (open source everything) but it does reflect an appreciation for how central the new free Internet is to the revolution in human affairs. As a final note, I am disappointed that not a single one of these authors saw fit to mention Medard Gabel and his long-standing graphic (posted above) showing how one third of what we spend on the military could resolve all ten high level threats to humanity starting with poverty, infectious disease, and environmental degradation. In short, the book is strong on consciousness and too remote from practical public intelligence in the public interest.

I strongly recommend the book to all readers, and honor the book's originality by listing below ten books that I have *not* read, that have been brought to my attention by this book and that represent the very important convergence of the six literatures above.

01 Building a Win-Win World
02 Ethical Markets: Growing the Green Economy
03 Thrival!: How to Have an Above Average Day Every Day
04 Imagination First: Unlocking the Power of Possibility
05 An Introduction to 3-Dimensional Leadership
06 Indigenous Peoples in International Law
07 Transforming History
08 The Penguin and the Leviathan: How Cooperation Triumphs over Self-Interest
09 Healthy Money, Healthy Planet: Developing Sustainablilty Through New Money Systems
10 The Akasha Paradigm: Revolution in Science, Evolution in Consciousness

For the actualization of what this book talks about, public intelligence in the public interest, see Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog, and particularly the Special Interest items. Above I am loading several graphics that represent the best thinking from the Earth Intelligence Network, as relevant to this book's aspirations. The time has come to actually "do" all this stuff, creating resilient local communities that turn their banks on the top down scarcity economy that concentrates wealth for the 1% and destroys life for all others.

Best wishes to all,
Robert David Steele

Its a very good book, even if it brings no great revelations on this current point of the path. Laszlo's chapters are excellent as his work is; clear, concise, to-the-point. Some of the guests over the chapters are not able to keep the same literary quality. Nevertheless, is a very good overview / begginers's guide to this moment and era of our planet.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A VIEW OF THE FUTURE? 1 juin 2013
Par KEBLAAB - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is the fourth book I have read by Laszlov. I rated each of the first three FIVE STAR because they all clearly reflected the brilliance in the author's understanding of the human condition. I rated this book 5-star as well for specific reasons. However, I was truly disappointed with many of his flawed (in my opinion) conclusions. First, most people's understanding of the Akashic Record is that of a field of knowledge and information which naturally exists in a quantum state of consciousness throughout the universe and is the matrix upon which everything in the cosmos is constructed. Matter, energy, biology and consciousness are all inter-connected. Many, myself included, accept this concept as being scientifically established through modern principles of quantum mechanics ... specifically, entanglement and nonlocality. I didn't find any reference or inclusion of this undertanding in the book. In fact, I was very confused by the author's use of the term "akashic." His use is clearly odd, unconventional and in need of explanation. The book is divided into four sections. The first is a spot-on description of how greed through the forces of socialism and corrupted-capitalism during the last century have brought all of the advanced nations to the brink of economic collapse which will inevitably take place during the coming decade. It will take decades more to work through. Many will suffer in the interim. This section is Laszlov at his best. Though too many have their heads in the sand regarding this economic reality and its consequences, the handwriting is on the wall, written in indelible ink, and Laszlov's evidence is brutally difficult to refute. The first section deserves 5 stars. The second section describes what will follow the eventual collapse. Again, the author is prophetically spot-on in this section as well. It is in certain details throughout the last two sections that the book loses some of its dynamic. In parts 3 & 4 Laszlo describes a potential long term solution for humanity and how to implement this strategy. While I applaud the author's positive energy and thinking in these sections, too much of his potential solution is utopian and does not demonstrate a clear understanding of human nature. That was also Karl Marx's chief failure. Here is the problem: While the solution to the successful advancement of human evolution will unavoidably demand a greater degree of connectedness, empathy, sharing of resources and cooperation, which the author forcefully defends ... most political-system futurists (like Laszlo) do not place enough emphasis on personal responsibility, achievement and respect for individual effort and property rights. Rewarding and supporting sloth, as our failed political systems of the last century have overtly established is also a major component of our economic and moral decline and decay. Any successful solution for the future of humanity must address this challenge to be realistically workable. Robert Steven Thomas, author: Intelligent Intervention
