A Quote by Ken Wilber on theory of everything, t o e, and physics

What would it mean if there were a theory of that explained everything? And just what does "everything" actually mean, anyway? Would this new theory in physics explain, say the meaning of human poetry? Or how economics work? Or the stages of psychosexual development? Can this new physics explain the currents of ecosystems, or the dynamics of history, or why human wars are so terribly common?

A Quote by Ken Wilber on philosophy, integral, theory of everything, t o e, holistic, and kosmos

..I sought a world philosophy--or an integral philosophy--that would believably weave together the many pluralistic contexts of science, morals, aesthetics, Eastern as well as Western philosophy, and the world's great wisdom traditions. Not on the level of details--that is finitely impossible; but on the level of orienting generalizations: a way to suggest that the world really is one, undivided, whole, and related to itself in every way: a holistic philosophy for a holistic Kosmos, a plausible Theory of Everything.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on integral, practice, and itp

The basic idea of integral transformative practice (ITP) is simple: the more aspects of our being that we simultaneously exercise, the more likely that transformation will occur.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on love, egocentric, ethnocentric, worldcentric, and compassion

...we cannot simply recommend love and compassion per se, for those unfold from egocentric to ethnocentric to worldcentric, and do we really want an increase in ethnocentric love?

A Quote by Ken Wilber on technology, singularity, exterior, and interior

What good is it to continue to focus on the exterior technological wonders before us--from indefinite life extension to computer/mind interlinks to unlimited zero-point energy to worm-hole intergalactic space travel--if all we carry with us is an egocentric red-mem Nazis and KKK? Do we really want Jack the Ripper living 400 years, zipping around the country in his hypercar, unleashing misogynistic nanorobots? Exterior developments are clearly a concern; how much more so are interior developments--or lack there of....

A Quote by Ken Wilber on integral and vision

It is our governing bodies, then, that stand in dire need of a more integral approach. it is our educational institutions, overcome with deconstructive postmodernism, that are desperate for a more integral vision. If is our business practices, saturated with fragmented gains, that cry out for a more balanced approach. It is our health-care facilities that could greatly benefit from the tender mercies of an integral touch. It is the leadership of the nations that might appreciate a more comprehensive vision of their own possibilities. In all these ways and more, we could indeed use an integral vision for a world gone slightly mad.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on evolution and consciousness

Human beings are born and begin their evolution through the great spiral of consciousness, moving from archaic to magic to mythic to rational to perhaps integral, and from there perhaps into genuinely transpersonal domains. But for every person that moves into integral or higher, dozens are born into the archaic.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on integral, integral practice, integral theory, theory of everything, and t o e

One of the questions we are dealing with, in other words, is how to more effectively implement the emergence of integral (and even transpersonal) consciousness at the leading edge. What is required, in my opinion, is not simply a new integral theory, or a new T.O.E., important as that is, but also a new integral practice.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on subpersonality, spiral dynamics, and memes

(Subpersonalities can exist at different levels or memes, however, so that one can indeed have a purple subpersonality, a blue subpersonality, and so on. These often are context-triggered, so that one can have quite different types of moral responses, affects, needs, etc., in different situations.)

A Quote by Ken Wilber on creativity, spirit, creationists, and fundamentalists

But the fundamentalists, the "creationists," seize upon these vacancies in the scientific hotel to pack the conferences with their delegates. They see the opening--creativity is an absolute--and they equate that absolute with their mythic god, and they stuff this god with all the characteristics that promote their own egoic inclinations, starting with the fact that if you don't believe in this particular god, you fry in hell forever, which is not exactly a generous view of Spirit.
