ABOUT THE RATIO OF INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL

…It has been more than two decades since three prominent thinkers met on the terrace of Stanislav Grof's home in California. In addition to S. Grof himself, they were Peter Russell and Erwin Laszlo. For several days, Stan Grof, a well-known representative of transpersonal psychology, Pete Russell, a brilliant theorist and "carrier of the creative impulse", and Hervey Laszlo, a "genius of systems thinking", discussed the fate, or rather, the "chances" of the world for its continued existence.

In the course of discourse, it was quickly discovered that the key point underlying almost all the problems discussed is the state of consciousness. As well as how the external depends on the internal. The scientists were extremely honest and correct. They pondered whether we can change and develop our consciousness enough to be able to save the world fraught with crises "outside", around us, and overcome the crises that besiege our minds "inside" (E. Laszlo).

And that sooner or later we will have to accept the fact that consciousness is absolutely fundamental to the universe, that it does not arise from matter (P. Russell). Also that the appeal to ancient traditional concepts is not a regression and a return to old ideas; it is a movement forward in a spiral, when old elements arise again at a higher level as part of the creative synthesis of ancient wisdom and modern science (S. Grof).

So, in order to survive, we must reconsider our ideas about the universe, about the ideas of progress and development, about man, about consciousness…
