Corporate interests outweigh the potential benefit to humanity in allowing

There seems to be a division between the "Aristoteleans" and the "Platonics"
less so in Mathematics more so in Science. Interesting. Why? This also
seems to relate to the difficulties between women and men. >>
I would suggest that abstractional consciousness (thinking on a strictly
subjective, non linear, non verbal plane of pure experience) is by definition
inexpressible at this point in our development. In this objectified three
dimensional reality, the recognition of "soul-speak" as I like to call it,
requires a different sort of mental attunement and daily pacing. A world that
demands outward focus leaves very little room for true inner development. I
don't think that anyone who can think in the abstract, refuses to do so. The
experience is just to powerful to ignore. I think it is more likely that
there may be some who have not come to recognize the inner experience of
intuitional subtlety when it appears in their life. I also think there are
many more, who have unlearned the experience during their "busy" outward
turned lives and therefore, no longer can. The full development of a
functional Budhi-manas consciousness is still part of humanities future.
There is still much to do about resolving our current karmic obligations
before being entrusted with the power and the responsibility that enlightend
