“Could it not be that a tremendously important event is taking place in the world—taking place right now—of which our own contemporaries have no presentiment? This is indeed so. A highly important event is taking place that is perceptible, but only to spiritual vision.” — Rudolf Steiner (Jan. 25, 1910)
What if matter is not solid, fixed, and dead, but a living and creative event? Could the concrete stuff of our existence be in the process of development and becoming? Rudolf Steiner predicted that the new Christ event would penetrate and transform all earthly and cosmic matter, life, consciousness, and evolution. Through this event, we have the opportunity to participate in the vortex of creative life. No longer detached, external spectators, we become co-creators in the drama of evolution and in the transformation of human consciousness.
In this original and challenging work, Dr Ben-Aharon describes how this momentous event is expressed in the fields of science, history, philosophy, and art. He relates some of the fresh and creative concepts that have been discovered and applied in the disciplines of physics, biology, genetics, and artificial intelligence. This event, he concludes, leads us to face the central and world historical question of our time:
“One thing is therefore quite certain: the future of the human as we know it is coming to an end. The only question is: What sort of an end is it going to be? Will the end of our purely natural evolution become a technological nightmare ruled forever by AI zombies or will it become the beginning of our most creative, humanly most satisfying and exhilarating cosmic adventure ever?” — Yeshayahu Ben-Aharon
