“The way I like to look at it is that we have this bank of consciousness, and we’re all human capital. And we’re all kind of depositing into this bank of consciousness. The question is, ‘What will we do with it?’, ‘What comes next?’. We have an opportunity here to take.” – Judy Martin, host journalist.

“And one day, it seems, the connectivity of the clusters of the imaginal cells reaches a critical mass, or a tipping point, and on that day a gene that has been lying asleep, wakes up. And it has the information code for a butterfly, and so a butterfly emerges. The biologist who explained this to me said ‘It’s like you took your bicycle to the repair shop, and then you went to pick it up and there was a gulf stream jet waiting for you!’… and here we are, a cluster of creative cells… the next step is to connect these clusters.” – Deepak Chopra

"Traditionally, enlightenment has been defined as a profound awakening to the Ground of Being - an awakening in which the seeker finds liberation through transcending the world of time and space.

"But in the new enlightenment, which is redefined in an evolutionary context, the discovery of this primordial ground is not an end in itself. It becomes the essential foundation from which the individual is freed to participate wholeheartedly in the evolutionary process.

"What arises out of that ground is an impulse to evolve, which I call the Authentic Self, and the goal of Evolutionary Enlightenment is to liberate this creative principle in human consciousness so that it can transform us and the world around us."

- Andrew Cohen
