Einstein as Shaman : Living By Truth

“Shamanism and science are both essential to making sense of our primary experience of the world. Discovering and living by truth require practicing each in dynamic balance with the other.” ~ Louis G. Herman

As he universe explodes outward from the primordial simplicity of the Big Bang, evolving into the complexity of billions of galaxies and solar systems, so too is this cosmic evolution creating increasingly more complex, unique, and autonomous beings.

Humans are arguably the most complex of these beings, due in most part to the uniqueness of our consciousness. Consciousness gives us the unexplainable ability to determine the past and prepare for the future from a paradoxical present.

From this precarious perception we are able to leverage awareness and meaning into an otherwise unaware and meaningless universe. We cut through it all with the double edged sword of science and shamanism. Both of which are essential to the progressive evolution of our species.

Living by truth requires both questioning and crossing boundaries. Science is our tool for questioning boundaries just as shamanism is our tool for crossing them. Because the truth is ever-elusive, we must be flexible and open minded enough to gain the capacity for it.
