"There is an unbounded main
Of thought, beyond our wildest dream,
Through which arrives in every brain,
Imbued with ego, a tiny stream."
"The earth is ailing, water sick
And nations on the brink of war,
Air with the fumes of poison thick
Because mankind has wandered far
From her divinely ordered route
In search of pleasure, wealth and ease
Her passions and desires to suit,
Her fancies and her whims to please."
This is an adaptation of Gopi Krishna's last book, The Way to Self-Knowledge, published in 1985. The book provides collective and individual guidelines for accelerating brain evolution. These inspired ideas are crucial to our survival in the context of the growing nuclear threat and other environmental disasters. When humanity begins to understand that the brain is still evolving with the target of a Super Mind, the current mad race for wealth and power will start to slow down. The exploration of factors that can accelerate our evolution, as well as current obstacles, can be a unifying factor in a project for the collective good. When it is understood that everything we think and do has an impact on the brain's evolution, a revision will occur on all fronts, diminishing the effects of greed and prejudice. The laws governing our evolutionary ascent, described time and again by enlightened seers, are the same forces guarding the rise and fall of civilizations.
