Humanity's current operating system has become obsolete. It is now clear that, if we continue to use it, we will become extinct. The old paradigm has certain flaws that render it vulnerable to corruption. At this point in time, the corruption is so advanced that the system is about to fail. Everybody knows it deep down, but most are still in denial since they don't yet see an alternative. A rapidly growing number of self-referent and visionary people are now in the process of installing a more advanced program. If all goes well, it should be up and running within 3-5 years.
The new paradigm isn't really new. It appears and reappears throughout history. For this reason, it has been called the Perennial Philosophy. It is the core understanding of mystics in all traditions. It is the reality paradigm that corresponds to and stems from Gnosis. The founders of all religions knew it, but the religions themselves are hostile to it since it means the end of their control. It flowered during the Renaissance in Europe when philosophers, theologians, mathematicians and artists of different places and cultures came together and pooled their knowledge. The invention of the printing press helped it to spread. Legacies of this period include Humanism, the Tarot, the Qabalah and Hermeticism. The movement was suppressed by the Catholic church by means of the Inquisition. The Inquisition was the attempted murder of an idea, a noocide. I say "attempted" because it could not be destroyed, only driven underground.
The thing I find most wonderful about this new/old understanding, is that it is arrived at independently by those who reject received reality, and set out to discover it for themselves. These are people who refuse to believe anything just because somebody (or everybody) else says it is so. And yet, they all come to the same realisations. This is the nature of Gnosis, that it is discovered rather than learned. It makes use of any tradition or none. The printing press of the Renaissance finds it's reflection in the Internet of today. So, for the first time in centuries, we have a model of existence derived from reality instead of imposed upon it.
For this reason, it has natural coherence, which the old paradigm lacks. Coherence is an amplifying factor. Because of this, the Perennial Philosophy will soon become more powerful than the imposed beliefs of the control system. The control system had coherence of a sort, but it was an artificial coherence. It has required a great deal of energy to maintain and, as it's instability increases, it will need much more. The new paradigm has been selected by evolution since it will allow humanity to thrive and grow, whereas the old can lead only to extinction.
I know this is happening because I can feel it. The tipping point has already been reached. The sense of anxiety that was present only six months ago has gone and been replaced by joyful anticipation. Many others have sensed this as well. In the words of John Lennon, "You may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will live as one."
