The “Age of Transparency” is upon us and now is the time to advance the conversation beyond the longstanding stalemate between science and religion. For over a millennial, science and religion has served as the structure of our shared inner and outer experiences. But what if there is more than our inner and outer experiences? I propose that there is much more and much less than our inner and outer experiences.
In fact, quietly existing adjacent to this lifelong clash between science and religion, there has always been a mysterious nondual perspective that profoundly eclipses the inner and outer experiences. The nondual perspective is a self-verifying direct experience of the outside AS the inside. And as radical and revolutionary as the nondual perspective is, it has only been silently growing alongside of science and religion all along as an open secret. But now that the “Age of Transparency” is here, a radical revolution in our understanding of Reality is inevitable.
As this broader understanding of Reality unfolds, each individual will gain their unique insights into the nature of Reality as a ‘Whole.’ And the individual truths regarding the ‘Whole’ or the ‘Totality’ are much like the metaphor of an elephant in a darkened room. Each individual feels around in the dark to touch this vast elephant; so each individual will be describing the very same elephant no matter what particular vantage point that they are experiencing it from. However, each individual description of this same immense elephant will naturally be limited to the particular section of the elephant that they experiencing.
So the question is, now that we are in the “Age if Transparency”, how do we turn the lights on so that we may advance the conversation regarding the nature of this elephant in the room? I would like to answer this question with an open discussion where individuals can share their unique insights into the nature of Reality. As more of us share our unique experiences of the Whole, that which resonates as truthful to our own experience will illuminate the room gradually revealing the Totality as it actually is.
This particular post titled the “Elephant Project” and is intended to serve as a colonization of insights, theories and models of Reality that will advance the conversation beyond the conventional wisdom. No matter if your focus is in science, religion or philosophy; any new ideas will be welcomed since we are all in this maze together. We will not benefit by leaving anything off the table. The idea is that by colonizing our ideas and insights, a natural pattern may spontaneously emerge illuminating our Reality to be recognized for what it actually is.
If working towards a better understanding of Reality sounds of interest to you, please consider contributing your unique insights regarding the nature of Reality. Post your own models of Reality, unique experiences that effected your perception of Reality or comment on others experiences and theories to advance the conversation.
