Humanity's Journey to Consciousness

Postby pilgrim-seeker_tom » Wed Apr 19, 2017 11:09 pm

For millennia philosophers have racked their brains attempting to understand humanity's journey to consciousness. They ponder 3 questions:

1) What ground has human consciousness already traveled? ... the past.

2) Where is human consciousness today? ... the present.

3) What direction should human consciousness take tomorrow? Paths surrendered are no longer an option.

All of the above exquisitely served up in increasingly sophisticated language and increasingly complex notions/concepts.

The link below is a 4.5 minute video that captures the above journey of several millennia ... in animation style/format ... that even a child can understand.

I particularly enjoyed the last few frames ... reminded me of the Third Secret of Fatima ... 2017 is the 100th anniversary of the Fatima events.
