The Age of Enlightenment opened up human understanding to the external world in enormous, and culturally dynamic ways, such as what we began to discover in the field of medicine, or how we began to have a new understanding of nature. Steve McIntosh describes the integral perspective as having just as far reaching an effect on human culture. Through reframing and opening us up to the internal world a new era of exploration and discovery is upon us. As McIntosh says, "Through the integral perspective we are able to see consciousness, culture, values, and much of the internal universe with a new clarity that allows us to grab hold of the stuff of the internal world in a way very similar to the way the [age of] Enlightenment opened up the external world. The practical application of this is that we recognize every problem in the world, at least to some degree, is a problem of consciousness." McIntosh describes what is consciousness, how is it evolving, and how can we apply its strengths to the moral and practical problems we face on the planet today. (hosted by Michael Toms)
