About Beyond Knowledge
The Age of Knowledge, which dominated the last two decades, is receding under today’s flood of smart phones, social media and artificial intelligence. Knowledge is still crucial, but the tech revolution is driving the world beyond knowledge into a new frontier governed by emotions, values, beliefs and higher-order thought.
An “Age of Consciousness” is here, though one may not like its current form. Whatever one thinks of former president Trump, all would concede that he is brilliant at creating an alternative reality. He is a master at shaping consciousness.
This transition poses enormous threats (climate change, mass automation of jobs, gross inequality, government gridlock, etc.) that Halal calls the “Crisis of Global Maturity.” Roughly 70% of the public thinks the status quo is not sustainable, and the big question is, how can we get the future we need? This book draws on the evidence and leading examples to show how global consciousness is emerging to transform our lives, work, social institutions and global mindset to enter a mature civilization. Or face disaster.
