“I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.” Tolstoy

    I have never heard that quotation before! How apt it is! It’s so parallel to that famous story of the Emperor’s New Clothes, wherein a little boy watches the Emperor parade by in his “new clothes” and blurts out, “The Emperor has no clothes on!!” And everyone realizes that they’ve been had! I think the most difficult words a person who has been duped can spit out are, “I was wrong!”

    As Galileo may have said on his deathbed – “As yet it moves…” referred to the inability of people in 1616 to accept the fact that the earth moves around the sun. Even today, some people still believe in a flat earth for obvious reasons. It fits their world view.

    In 1948, Sir Fred Hoyle, a British Astronomer, said, “Once a photograph of the earth is taken from the outside is available…a new idea…as powerful as any in history will be let loose.”

    Twenty years later in 1968, the power of the Apollo 8 “Earth Rise” photo of our “Pale Blue Dot” (Karl Sagan) from the moon changed how we saw ourselves on “Spaceship Earth” (Bucky Fuller.)

    Most people believe today that we live and ride as passengers on Spaceship Earth. Thanks to Karl and many other sages, and the members of our Wednesday Night Group group, we have come to understand ourselves in a new relationship with the Quantum Field and the multi-verse.

    Each generation believes their perspective on the world is unique and the best one forever. With a sense of awe and wonder, let us be open to what’s next and best when our perspective changes.
