The first volume of “The Paradigm Shift Trilogy” is called The Global Mind and the Rise of Civilization, and if we are now truly part of a paradigm shift it seems we should not be thinking exactly in the same terms or using the same kinds of concepts that we have been doing in the past. While “the Rise of Civilization” seems clear enough and means pretty much the same as it always has, the “Global Mind” is a new concept that has never been used in this sense before.
“The Global Mind” in the sense it is used in The Paradigm Shift Trilogy is not the sum of all the minds of the human individuals, nor is it necessarily the same as “collective consciousness,” which sometimes is used to mean exactly such a sum. Instead, the “Global Mind” is a name for a global holographic structure that every human being is in resonance with and shapes the kind of mental abilities and thoughts that we have. Ancient sources describing it as it first appeared show that this hologram indeed exists. No humans (or extraterrestrials) rule the Global Mind. The Global Mind rules us and sets the limit to what we can think and do at any given point in time. This does not mean that some of us cannot be happy about life, but it does mean that as long as we are unaware of the existence of this Global Mind our consciousness, and our view of who we are will be limited and constrained. We will not be able to fully grasp the purpose of the human species.
Seeing through the Global Mind and understanding what it is, I believe is the key meaning of the paradigm shift that is now beginning and was prepared for by the significant mental shift in the Mayan calendar. Our minds have been very helpful and led us to the creation of the civilization in which we are now living, but if we are truly to become free as a species we will have to be able to understand what the “Global Mind” is. A paradigm shift always carries some fundamentally new concepts that were never used in the past. The Global Mind is such a concept, which is of critical importance for those that at the current time want to take the next step.
