Each of us is, as the title of one of Joe’s books describes, Evolution’s End. We are each that tip of living essence, like a blade of grass pushing through concrete slab of our conditioning, habitual and reflexive behavior. There is little or no intelligence in a reflex, David Bohm notes. We have 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts each day and nearly all are replicas of what we thought yesterday. Krishnamurti describes us as second-hand human beings.
Actualizing our astonishing capacities demands that we transcend our self-inflicted limitations. Transcendence is not a concept, imagining a new something. Transcendence is a state, not an idea.
“The Life and Insights of Joseph Chilton Pearce, edited by Michael Mendizza, reveals how Pearce, a modern-day sage, endowed with the courage, strength, and perseverance to challenge conventional world views, offered humanity original and penetrating insights into our transcendent nature and vast creativity. Joe’s brilliant and original works represent a profound and important contribution toward healing our global dysfunction and ensuring the healthy development of future generations.”

“Pearce was an inspirational figure, a small giant.
He soared higher than I aspire, or most people can.”
