Mutant Message Down Under. Kindle edition, 1994, Paperback 2004. I am very conscious of all the critics against this book, who appears no to be approved by aboriginal community at all. Nevertheless, the book in itself contains a very challenging message, which is what interests me here.

80 There is a whole literature on the “energy of the vacuum”. There even are engine prototypes already functioning with cosmic energy. But, were that technology really develop, it would be the collapse of a solid part of our energetic empires. Mankind does not seem ready for such a type of energetic revolution http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1134/is 1 112/ai 97174292

88 Secularisation means total separation of religion and politics. It is not any more possible for religion to be manifested publicly. Religion of spiritual aspiration are considered as purely private. Some say that this “private habit” will disappear one day.

92 The “State of the World Forum “ was created by Jim Garrison, and patronized by Mikhail Gorbatchev. In a large hotel of ‘Nob Hill “(the hill of the smart) in San Francisco, Jim had the genius to bring together one thousand people from the Unites States, but also from 45 other countries. All these people were interested in the ongoing cultural changes, or in the paradigm change. There I understood that I was not an isolated eccentric, but a member of a world community of reflection about the profound change and paradigm shift we are in. Unfortunately, this experience lasted only five years between 1996 and 2001

94 See beginning of Chapter 3, where I describe the four stages of paradigm acceptance according to Kuhn.
95 It was a difficult fight because the sociologists were not convinced. I then understood the dilemma of the sociologists. They are condemned to only find what they already know, since their questions always are oriented toward what they want to find. There are no “objective” questions. And, thus, the commission sociologists who were rather classic and did not consider as interesting this hypothesis of the existence of “cultural creatives” in Europe. Finally the “Forward Studies Unit” of the European Commission entrusted the inquiry analysis to an outside consultant so as not to hurt anybody’s feelings.

116 I am putting “scientific” between brackets, to underline that this definition of science is modern and would not be accepted anymore by Prigogine and others new thinkers of transmodern science.
117 By the way, this model forms the basis of the political architecture of the European Union as conceived by Jean Monnet in 1950. All countries sitting around the table are strictly equal.
