The Mystery and Wisdom of Consciousness in the Scientific Age...21st-century people live and understand the world around them in ways that are vastly different from generations past. We have information about every aspect of life that is knowable to science, and how it fits with everything else. The physical universe is fully modeled, and we have an overview of history and of time. We use our understanding to create immensely powerful technology in an instantly interconnected world. But despite all of this, individual human lives unfold as unpredictably as they always have. We rarely control our current circumstances or our future, and we experience dreams, emotions, meaning, and highly subjective realities that lie beyond logical study. Human consciousness is flexible; without flinching, we accept contradiction, infinity, eternity, and the unknowable. The Domination Era: A Philosophic Ramble explores the intangible elements of human experience as they intersect with the crowded, global, scientific civilization we live in. With topics ranging from the philosophical implications of historic cycles and maps to musings about the wisdom and memory of animals, this penetrating and thought-provoking book will give you a different perspective on the world around you now, and the world as it has always been.
