The exact nature of the mind has long been a mystery. Where does it come from? What makes it so powerful?

To find out, we look back to the dawn of human civilization, and at the pivotal mental shift that created early civilizations. Dr. Calleman describes what inspired the ancient Egyptians, Sumerians, Jews and Mayans, outlining a new theory about the historical, psychological, geophysical, and neurological roots of the human mind.

We may finally understand why monuments such as the pyramids and Stonehenge were built at the same time. This theory goes on to explain how a global mind, rather than the individual, has had the power to make empires rise and fall.

From this we know that all humans belong to the same evolving mind. This first volume of The Paradigm Shift Trilogy provides the basis for how humans may craft the global mind of the future and recreate our world.
