The Rationale Behind Eternea
Consciousness and Conditioning
"It's clearly a
crisis of two things: of consciousness and conditioning. We have the
techological power, the engineering skills to save our planet, to cure
disease, to feed the hungry, to end war. But we lack the intellectual
vision, the ability to change our minds. We must decondition ourselves
from 10,000 years of bad behavior. And, it's not easy."
Eternea believes that one
of the best ways change the behavior of humanity towards itself and to
the entire web of life on our fragile and precious planet is through
fundamental shifts in consciousness. That shift can most effectively and
rapidly be brought when transformative experiences that occur to large
numbers of people around the globe.
When they occur, these experiences are so compelling that they
usually challenge the world view of those who experience them. As a
result these experiences often changes the ways experiencers think about
themselves, their relationship to others and their place in the cosmos.
From our perspective it appears that the best ways to accomplish this change of
world view to the population at large is by one of the following two
ways. The first is by finding methods to enable direct experiences such
as Dr. Alexander’s but without the trauma associated with a real NDE.
The second way is by inducing empathetic transformations to the rest of
us as a result of the reporting by large numbers of individuals from
around the globe who report their transformational experiences.
At Eternea we are building a very sophisticated
data base capability to report and analyze transformational experiences.
It is our intention to collect and analyze large amounts of data about
the nature of the transformative experience from around the globe. The
more data we collect, the more valuable the data will become for
advancing the credibility of those who report STEs and also in
overcoming objections from skeptics. Our data base will also be an
enabler in advancing the state of the art in understanding the nature of
transformative experiences, how they can be invoked and their
implications to humanity.
Eternea’s work is nothing short of a quest to help
humanity achieve greater understanding and awareness through the
advancement of scientific knowledge about the ultimate nature of all
things. Eternea aspires to propel science beyond traditional methods
and boundaries in an effort to further unravel the meaning, purpose,
nature and structure of life.
In a relatively short span of time, science and resultant technology
have completely transformed life as we know it on our planet. To be
sure, science and technology have together served to provide the means
for improving the quality and longevity of life, as well as the human
condition in general. Yet, the greatest achievements of science have yet
to materialize and will come about through deeper study and probing of
the quantum realm and consciousness.
Lack of understanding and awareness of our nature, purpose and place in
the universe is at the root of humanity’s greatest problems, challenges
and threats. None of the current crises facing humankind can be remedied
or resolved without a fundamental core shift in perception, beliefs and
values predicated upon scientifically derived insights about who we
really are and how reality came into being. In this way, humankind could
evolve from its current dismal state into a more ideal condition.
Eternea is dedicated to sponsoring the education and scientific
research needed for this purpose.
