“The universe is not a stagnant place where technology stands still and only the few govern its destiny.

R.G. Risch

“It’s a temporary stage in human evolution, this need to travel to distant places in order to be with ourselves.”
Joseph Rain

“For thousands of years, different cultures, traditions, doctrines, and practices have pointed their fingers at the sky and argued whose finger stretches further. Darwin’s theory of evolution redirected our focus back to Earth; toward ourselves. It explained the development of events that propelled life from simple beginnings to biologically sophisticated beings, but it failed to account for the complexity of human consciousness and therefore cannot be credibly extended into modern social enterprises. With the advent of a new dimension of awareness—the elevation of human consciousness beyond materialistic, competitive and ego-centered behavior—we are evolving into responsible co-creators, combining David Hume’s behavior ruled by desire with Immanuel Kant’s morality dictated by reason, and integrating both with the virtues of open and sincere examination. We are beginning to accept that all fingers are pointing toward the one and the same truth: the one completeness that unites us as much as it separates us. By bringing together fact, faith, and reason, we are able to investigate and define our environment in a more objective, sincere manner and co-create our reality deliberately, responsibly, and coherently. We are expanding our depth of perception and establishing our true selves within the spirit of our choosing. Our future, as modern humans, is influenced no longer so much by natural selection as by our own conscious choices.”
Joseph Rain

“We’ve emerged as the winners of natural evolution because of our ability to organize ourselves into functional groups on a global scale: not through establishing a personal partnership with every individual or learning every system, but by understanding and uniting our trust in these systems and in each other, and adapting ourselves to the changing environment.”
Joseph Rain

“We exist, we are aware of ourselves and this effectively places us in the center of our Universe.”

Joseph Rain
