“Who am I? Who are you?
You may not be what you think you are…
What is the actual power of a human being to really benefit the world when they’re able to put the priorities of the whole system in front of themselves, even if that means they have to die in the process?
How many of us can do that right now?
What if seven billion of us did that?
Maybe the one thing that keeps us from solving all of the other problems of the world is this persistant, flawed thought that we are separate from the world.
And maybe it’s time that we changed our minds.”
Jeff Lieberman, an MIT-trained artist, scientist and engineer, makes a scientific argument for mystical experience. He asks us to challenge our perception of what we are, our relationship to the universe, and our relationship to one another. Our minds are “thought-generating machines.” What we would happen if we could turn off the machine? If we could transcend our individual experience of the world?
