ABSTRACT
People are beginning to realize, however, that no matter how much people attempt to validate the existence through certification and no matter how much people attempt to novocaine the pain through consuming, people cannot avoid peering into the darkness of the inner selves, if people wish to survive. People cannot hope to discover ways to continue by consuming the metaphysical artifacts of culture, nor is survival to he found in living according to the power-based premises of science and the states The light of progress cannot replace the light of the darkened forests. Helpless, whimpering like a lost child, people wail for a physician, a medicine, man, a magician. They turn to the dreamers they have cast into exile and beseech them to dream a dream that will bring life. The pain is aggravated by the fact that the rational control systems of the state and corporate economy no longer hold on people they once did. Through continued receptivity to what is, to who we are, to what the universe is, people begin to grasp the connectedness or interdependence that is part of life and to the extent that this connectedness or interdependence becomes a reality for the people.
