Taking Appearance Seriously2012
The experience of authentic wholeness requires a new style of learning largely ignored in our schools and universities today.
The greatest difficulty in understanding comes from our long-established habit of seeing things in isolation from each other.
The holistic mode of consciousness … is nonlinear, simultaneous, intuitive … and concerned more with relationships.
The need is for a new science of nature … based on other human faculties besides the analytic mind.
The viewpoint of materialism is a distortion that results from a one-sided emphasis on the category of quantity.
