dc.description.abstractWe live in a world full of crisis. Western society’s primary ways of thinking about and relating to the rest of the world have brought us enough social and environmental crisis to threaten our existence. In my Integration Project, I consider this issue of crisis grown out of our ways of thought. Ido so from the belief that if we can better understand some of the forms and patterns of our own thoughts, then we are better equipped to question and change to find our way out of crisis. I look particularly at two aspects of how we think. The first is to consider the history of a fragmented pattern of thought, surveying from 40,000 years ago to the present. The second is to consider new findings from cognitive science that suggest a radically different understanding of how our very thoughts are related to the world that we experience. I believe that if we continue to try to address our problems within our current framework, our problems will continue to get worse. If, instead, we can look into our own hunger for a finer way of being, if we can learn to wrestle ever more deeply with the kind of stories that might heal our lives, we may find a way to move beyond the crisis that we, as humans, have created.en_US
