The Emergence of Us

Front Cover
iUniverse, Jul 31, 2006 - Social Science - 148 pages
What force compels people who are deeply concerned about the state of the earth to pollute on a daily basis?

Just as gravity affects us all regardless of whether you believe in science, spiritual laws, or the omnipotence of God, human emergent behavior works invisibly to define the character of our society.

These forces are created whenever enough people come together to form a group, a society, or all of humankind. People's thoughts and actions are then subtly herded by these mechanistic forces.

By becoming aware of human emergent behavior, we create the opportunity to bring consciousness and love to this powerful presence that is blindly ravaging society and the world.

About the author (2006)

Tim has spent much of his life trying to grasp why it was the system we live in and apparently control is obviously not well-suited to human happiness or sustainability, and what exactly could we do about it. His journey took him to university, to live with the Native Americans, and take on all manner of jobs including dance instructor, senior administrator, and dead meat butcher. He has lived in Canada, the US, and currently the UK. While currently rather poor, he hopes that at some time in the future he will be in a position to build some schools based on his work.
