The following article was written by Jacob Devaney and was published by Collective Evolution on March 30, 2021.
In this article, Devaney asks, “Why aren’t people like the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, and Dr. Andrew Weil conversing more with people like Ray Kurzweil, Elon Musk, and Steve Mann?”
Devaney says that it is increasingly becoming clear that our technologies need to be informed by “the natural ethos of indigenous people blended with the emotional intelligence of our enlightened spiritual masters”. He goes on to say that communication, cooperation, and collaboration across disciplines need to in order for our societies to take calculated risks, especially when using technology.
Devaney adds that it is important to recognize that even the most advanced computers cannot compare with the complexities of organic systems. He also says that humanity is capable of amazing things, especially when we “channel discipline, practice, creative brilliance, fearlessness, and focus”. We have barely scratched the surface of what is possible!
Editor’s Note: Indeed, we realize that conversations between scientists belonging to both the materialist and postmaterialist approach need to happen. We know this is possible, after all, it was only a few years ago when the Dalai Lama had engaging discussions with scientists about the intersections of science and philosophy.
We also know that such conversations are only possible when both “camps” are willing to listen to each other. When people realize that each of us is a carrier of truths, and that to complete the puzzle, we need to hear the truth that another holds. After all, despite our different persuasions, we all seek to ease, if not eliminate, human suffering.
