Excerpt from Foundation for a New Consciousness 3

Copyright © 1987 John Caris

From chapter 1 "A Dare"

The new consciousness is a variation on an ancient theme which can be called the consciousness of paradox. The child, springing from a state of unity, soon learns that there's mommy and there's daddy. This basic duality is found in all human societies and may reflect our divided brain with its right and left hemispheres. And so, in most societies is found a tradition that shows how to regain the lost unity, but on a higher level. Consciousness of paradox is one step toward that next dimension.
