Street Art As An Expression Of Post-Modern Consciousness, Suzuki, Christopher M. 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

Street Art As An Expression Of Post-Modern Consciousness, Suzuki, Christopher M.

Journal of Conscious Evolution

This paper explores the development and expression of street art from the end of the twentieth century to the present day. I examine the street art’s use and definition of public space and how it challenges the prevailing paradigm on property and ownership. I explore the way that street art uses the language of advertising to reach the largest amount of people, while speaking out against all that consumerism stands for. I discuss how in braking down the boundaries between high art and low, and using images from every source imaginable, street speaks to the post-modern projects desire to ...


The Russian Bride’S Attire: A Journey Through Art And Consciousness, Luce, Elizabeth A. 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

The Russian Bride’S Attire: A Journey Through Art And Consciousness, Luce, Elizabeth A.

Journal of Conscious Evolution

This paper addresses the triad of, creativity, consciousness and culture. How the viewer “sees” the painting is influenced by consciousness and the surrounding culture – creativity is the creative process of the artist. Art is fluid in the sense that viewers see it differently at different times in their lives. The creative process experienced by the artist is the genesis of the painting. However, the art takes on a life of it’s own for every viewer. The definition of consciousness in this paper is based on the awareness and environment of the viewer.


Jack B. Yeats: Journey In Consciousness, Buck, Richard 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

Jack B. Yeats: Journey In Consciousness, Buck, Richard

Journal of Conscious Evolution

Jack B. Yeats (1871-1957) was an Irish artist and writer. His art evolved from the representational to something much more abstract. By examining six paintings covering the early, the middle, and the late periods of his life, I have endeavored to demonstrate a distinct shift in Jack B. Yeats from the mental structure of consciousness to the emergence of the integral structure of consciousness, as described by Gebser (1984). Artistic evidence of a shift in his consciousness is supplemented by a critical reading of one of his novels. Secondary sources were consulted to gain insight into the literary works that ...


The Three Neurogenetic Phases Of Human Consciousness, Grandy, John K. 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

The Three Neurogenetic Phases Of Human Consciousness, Grandy, John K.

Journal of Conscious Evolution

This paper is an organization and conceptualization of a genetic account of human consciousness and to establish an initial list of the neurogenetic correlates of consciousness (NgCC). This will be accomplished by establishing networks of genes that are involved in the multiple facets of the process of human consciousness. The methodology utilized in this work is the evaluation of a small number of genes that have been researched experimentally in order to understand their role in brain development and function. The results demonstrate that most neurogenetic genes can be categorized into three phases: the emergence of neuron-based consciousness, the continuum ...


A.I., Cyborgs, Shamans And Transcendence Configuring The Iso And The Mythopoeic Sacred In Tron: Legacy, Efthimiou, Olivia 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

A.I., Cyborgs, Shamans And Transcendence Configuring The Iso And The Mythopoeic Sacred In Tron: Legacy, Efthimiou, Olivia

Journal of Conscious Evolution

This essay explores the role of cyberspace in the 2010 film Tron: Legacy as an expression of the enduring relevance of religious symbolism and humanity's innate search for transcendence in modern technologies. Cyberspace is investigated as a sacred space of infinite possibilities in which humanity is redefined at the intersection of the digital, fantasy and consciousness. In the examination of the film’s religious symbolism as a modern-day creation myth and its roots in shamanic cosmology, artificial intelligences in the movie depicted as highly complex humanoid information systems are proposed as a blueprint for an advanced mode of consciousness ...


Uncertainty, Enaction And Theater: Practicing For The Revolution, Scott, John 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

Uncertainty, Enaction And Theater: Practicing For The Revolution, Scott, John

Journal of Conscious Evolution

This paper discusses how using theater and the creative arts can be a useful tool in changing ourselves and communities for the better. I will also offer examples of using Theater of the Oppressed structures in youth community settings, linking these case examples to concepts of uncertainty, enaction, and transformation. This paper will also offer examples of challenges in facilitating and participating in this community based creative arts work. I will then speak to the urgency of using this creative work in our American systems, arguing that theater and the creative arts can support both young people and adults in ...


Intercorporeality: An Invitation To Being In The Human-Body-Nature Relationship, Eli, Renee 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

Intercorporeality: An Invitation To Being In The Human-Body-Nature Relationship, Eli, Renee

Journal of Conscious Evolution

Human-mediated climate change and environmental degradation are real. Likewise, human health issues associated with modernity are becoming increasingly concerning. This paper presupposes the inter-relationship between these two bourgeoning phenomena, and draws upon recent scholarship in the field of Religion and Ecology, and particularly the work of Thomas Berry (2006, 1999), as a means to critically analyze Judeo-Christian theosophy, an encoded meaning animus by which Westerners (largely), and Americans primarily, enact denial of the fullest expression of life – among one another and within the context of the natural world. I offer two broadly generalized and contrasting religious narratives, which together illumine ...

Montessori Education: What Is Its Relationship With The Emerging Worldview?, Lide, Allison 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

Montessori Education: What Is Its Relationship With The Emerging Worldview?, Lide, Allison

Journal of Conscious Evolution

The classroom structure of traditional education has been modeled on the defining characteristics of the mechanical worldview, including linearity, hierarchy, reductionism, objectivity, outcomes, and empiricism. The advent of a participatory worldview has brought a new set of priorities including non-linearity, interdependence, process, relationship, and ecology. A Montessori classroom structure embodies these emerging characteristics. The Montessori approach is based on a non-linear developmental model. It provides a form of education that is not limited to mechanistic cognitive development, but integrally involves all aspects of human development, and is thus well-aligned with the qualities of the emerging worldview.

Shifting Realities: Tron Cyberspace And The “New” Consciousness In 21st Century Technoscapes, Efthimiou, Olivia 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

Shifting Realities: Tron Cyberspace And The “New” Consciousness In 21st Century Technoscapes, Efthimiou, Olivia

Journal of Conscious Evolution

The existing direction of the (mis)use of information technologies founded on the deceptively secular rationalised heritage of scientism, arguably spells the increasing proximity to a dystopian nightmare that is far from mere fiction and imbued with the eternal religious symbolic of the battle between good and evil, as depicted in the 2010 science fiction film Tron: Legacy. The historical contextualisation of events in the film reveals the promise of the unfolding of an advanced sensibility alongside these concerns, in which fantasy and science converge to liberate humanity from an increasingly limiting worldview, and information and images serve as conduits ...


The Bhagavad Gita: The Roadmap To Conscious Evolution: Understanding The Eternal Reality Of Consciousness, Chopra, Sadna 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

The Bhagavad Gita: The Roadmap To Conscious Evolution: Understanding The Eternal Reality Of Consciousness, Chopra, Sadna

Journal of Conscious Evolution

The purpose of my study is to present the knowledge of the Self (our true nature) and the knowledge of what Consciousness is, from the sacred text of the Bhagavad Gita. I have examined how the verses of the Gita unfold into a Roadmap for the Conscious Evolution of the self.


The Art Of Evolving Consciousness, MacQueen, Kim 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

The Art Of Evolving Consciousness, Macqueen, Kim

Journal of Conscious Evolution

This paper supports the position that the arts have the capacity not only to give us information intellectually about the evolution of the human endowment of consciousness, but can also evoke a felt sense of previous stages and anticipate transitions and emerging stages. In this paper I give examples of artworks that suggest each stage of the evolution described in the writings of Jean Gebser. For purposes of this paper the artworks are limited to visual arts and sculpture. I think that much of humankind’s vast historical and multicultural endowment of the arts can remind us of previous periods ...
