Using his theoryof morphic resonance, Sheldrake was able to reinterpret the regularities of nature asbeing more like habits than immutable laws, offering a new understanding of life andconsciousness.In the years since its first publication, Sheldrake has continued his research todemonstrate that the past forms and behavior of organisms influence present organ-isms through direct immaterial connections across time and space. This can eplainwhy new chemicals become easier to crystallize all over the world the more oftentheir crystals have already formed, and why when laboratory rats have learned howto navigate a maze in one place, rats elsewhere appear to learn it more easily. Withmore than two decades of new research and data, Rupert Sheldrake makes an evenstronger case for the validity of the theory of formative causation that can radicallytransform how we see our world and our future.Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D., is a former research fellow of the Royal Society and formerdirector of studies in biochemistry and cell biology at Clare College, CambridgeUniversity. He is the author of more than 80 technical papers and articles appearingin peer-reviewed scientific journals and 10 books, including The Presence of the Past,   The Rebirth of Nature, and Seven Experiments That Could Change the World.

But with great danger comesgreat opportunity—the opportunity for fundamental change that will transformour societies from top to bottom. In WorldShift 2012, Ervin Laszlo brings togetherinsights for creating sustainable positive change from spiritual leaders, scientists,and visionary businesspeople—people such as Albert Einstein, Mohammad Yunus,Václav Havel, Eckhart Tolle, Ken Wilber, David Korten, Paul Hawken, and TomoyoNonaka, former CEO of Sanyo Electronics. He shows how we can replace the limitedconsciousness of our failing society with the holistic consciousness that is reflected inthe unified field of quantum physics: the Akashic field.We have an opportunity to move from the current political and business model of grow or die to a sustainable world respectful of human beings, nature, and the planet.Change on this level calls for a profound shift in consciousness and a clear under-standing that—as cutting-edge physics shows—we are truly connected with eachother and with the cosmos. This book presents clear evidence of this connectednessand describes the tools we need to make our world greener and our planet safer as westrive to realize the holistic consciousness of connection through the Akashic field.Ervin Laszlo, twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, is editor of the interna-tional periodical World Futures: The Journal of General Evolution and the founder andpresident of the international think tanks the Club of Budapest, the World WisdomCouncil, and the General Evolution Research Group. He is the author of 85 books,translated into 22 languages, and he lives in Tuscany.

However, as Mayan elderand daykeeper Hunbatz Men shows, the cosmological understanding of his ancestorswas so sophisticated that they had not one, but many calendars, each based on thecycles of different systems in the cosmos. In this book he reveals for the first timethe Tzek’eb, or Pleiades, Calendar of 26,000 years, which charts the revolution of our solar system around Alcyone, the central star of the Pleiades system. He alsodiscusses the K’uuk’ulcan Calendar of the 4 seasons of the solar year and the wheelof the K’altunes Calendar, which is composed of 13 cycles of 20 years each that forma calendar of 260 years.In traditional Mayan culture the computation of time was not determined bysimple economic or social motives. The calendars served the higher purpose of syn-chronizing the lives of human beings and their societies to the great cosmic pulsation,to the rhythm of the annual seasons, and to the other cycles that dictate changesupon Earth. Mayan understanding of the cosmic cycles was so eact that this knowl-edge could be used to influence all stages of life—from planning when to conceive(parents could choose not only the se of their child but its vocation and futuredestiny) to plotting out the course of the entire society. Pyramids played a crucial rolein applying this wisdom because, as Hunbatz Men shows, they were able to produceand transform energy in accordance with the cosmic cycles charted by the calendars.This book reveals for the first time the wisdom of the multi-calendar Mayan systemand how it can help guide our modern world.Hunbatz Men is a Mayan daykeeper—an authority on the history, chronology, andcalendars of Mayan civilization. He is also the author of  Secrets of Mayan Science/ Religion, a ceremonial leader, and founder of the Mayan Indigenous Community nearMérida, Meico.
