your host, K Sea Ya

Integral: the word means to integrate, to bring together, to join, to link, to embrace. Not in the sense of uniformity, and not in the sense of ironing out all the wonderful differences, colors, zigs and zags of a rainbow-hued humanity, but in the sense of unity-in-diversity, shared commonalities along with our wonderful differences. And not just in humanity, but in the Kosmos at large: finding a more comprehensive view - a Theory of Everything (T.O.E) - That makes legitimate room for art, moral science, and religion and doesn't merely attempt to reduce them all to one's favorite slice of the Kosmic pie.

    And of course, if we succeed in developing a truly holistic or integral view of reality, then we will also develop a new type of critical theory - that is, a theory that is critical of the present state of affairs in light of a more encompassing and desirable state, both in the individual and the culture at large. The Integral Paradigm will inherently be critical of those approaches that are, by comparison, partial, narrow, shallow, less in compassing, less integrative.

(Ken Wilber, A Theory of Everything)

ARTCURA PICKS

The Ever Present Origin

Author: In memoriam Jean Gebser by Jean Keckeis Year: 1986 This English translation of Gebser’s major work, Ursprung und Gegenwart (Stuttgart, Deutsche Verlag, 1966), offers certain fundamental insights which should be beneficial to any sensitive scientist and makes it available to the English-speaking world for the recognition it deserves.

Seeing Through the World

Author: Jeremy Jonhson Year: 2019 Seeing Through the World introduces the reader to the work of German-Swiss philosopher, poet, and intellectual mystic Jean Gebser (1905-1973). Writing in the midcentury during a period of intense cultural transformation and crisis in Europe, Gebser intuited a series of mutational leaps in the history of human consciousness, the latest of which emerging was the “integral” structure, marked by the presence of time-freedom.

Leading from Emerging Future

Author:Otto Scharmer & Katrin Kaufer Year: 2013 Meeting the challenges of this century requires updating our economic logic and operating system from an obsolete “ego-system” focused entirely on the well-being of oneself to an eco-system awareness that emphasizes the well-being of the whole.

Conflict Resolution fro Holy Beings

Author: Joy Harjo Year: 2015 A musical, magical, resilient volume from the first Native American Poet Laureate of the United States. In these poems, the joys and struggles of the everyday are played against the grinding politics of being human. Beginning in a hotel room in the dark of a distant city, we travel through history and follow the memory of the Trail of Tears from the bend in the Tallapoosa River to a place near the Arkansas River.
