Audio version read by Rev. Steven Lane Taylor, B.Msc.
In recent years, the world has advanced enormously in technology—like the proverbial snowball rolling downhill, building momentum as it goes. Outwardly, society is being transformed from what it once was to the extreme, fast pace of today. However, while the physical sciences are accelerating, human beings and their consciousness remain basically the same. This brings about the dilemma of greater technological power in the hands of unaware souls with frailty and the propensity for violence and inhumane acts.
The need for human transformation from base to higher consciousness has existed throughout the ages. However, at no time in human history has so much technology been available with the ability to destroy all of humanity in a matter of minutes. A few miscalculations on the part of the consciousness of a small number of people—or even one—could result in the annihilation of the entire human race.
