“It takes brave authors to get out ahead of the mainstream and write about an emergent worldview while the majority of people remain devoutly attached to the old. It takes skillful authors to present their case in a way that builds a bridge from the old paradigms rather than just knocking them down. Jon and Juliana Freeman do both. They are knowledgeable and respectful when writing about both science and religion—the two primary worldviews extant in the West. Yet they do not hesitate to illustrate where science has morphed into scientism or where religious values have restricted growth and stifled creativity.
What the authors put forward is not so much a theory as a story. It is a story that sparks questions about the status quo thinking in biology, chemistry, genetics, physics, psychology, cosmology, and sociology. They pull together essential strands from all these disciplines, juxtapose them, and then astutely point out where they support and/or contradict each other. They are not afraid to say, “That doesn’t make sense” from a rational point of view or “that doesn’t feel right” when human experience is ignored or distorted to support an “objective truth”.

It dares to put consciousness front and center as the information field that makes the Universe a process rather than a thing. At the end, the authors help us imagine totally new possibilities in economics and finance, globalization, ecology, education, healthcare, and even relationships. If this book is a story, it lets us, the readers, write our own endings—and the endings are countless. The choice is ours. This book taught me a lot. More important, it motivates me to go out and do something—to harness possibility in the co-

In the book, Jon does a convincing job in bridging the gaps between physics and metaphysics, philosophy and science, chaos theory and fractals and the biological systems of the brain. He reminds us of what we have already known, that the universal macrocosm is within us and that if we tap into that infinite reservoir of "knowing" we can alter the course of humanity in many positive ways

I'm a futurist, stretching to see over the horizon. This book helped me understand the dynamics that are creating our future, and how to participate in creating our coming global cultural and economic evolution. Many powerful understandings. I especially liked the last two chapters where he pulls it all together and adds his vision of possibilities.
