P14/39b The Global Mind and the Rise of Civilization

Aired on September 30th  on Positive Living Vibrations with Sara Troy and her guest Dr. Carl Johan Calleman

In the years leading up to the purported end of the Mayan calendar in 2012, many people interested in the spiritual evolution of humanity were engaged in making predictions and prophecies as to what this would mean. Because of the whirlwind of disinformation that clouded this shift, including a large Hollywood catastrophe movie, and the apparent uneventful aftermath of the shift date, many have come to conclude that this calendar lacks relevance for understanding human history and our own time.

Not so, says Dr. Carl Johan Calleman, who has consistently argued based on his research that the Mayan calendar is about the evolution of consciousness— changing people on the inside — rather than catastrophes or astronomical events.

Looked upon from this perspective, the Mayan calendar then remains the most important source for us to grasp the divine time plan for the evolution of humanity. In fact, with the shift in the Mayan calendar in 2011-2012, the transformation of the human mind to unity is only beginning!

In his recent book, The Global Mind and the Rise of Civilization, the first volume in The Paradigm Shift Trilogy, Dr. Calleman describes how deep and fundamental the consequences of the shift in the Mayan calendar has been for our world-view, a shift that is only now beginning to make itself known.

Significantly on May 8, 2014, Nature magazine published the astonishing findings by a scientific team that the universe–at its enormous scale–is actually organized around a Cosmic Tree, pointing to a unified plan for all of the cosmos. What the ancient peoples all maintained, and what Dr Calleman has repeated in all of his books, has thus now been verified by modern science. Since, indeed the whole Mayan calendar system is based on the Tree of Life, this new finding points forward to a large paradigm shift where all life–and especially the human mind — is recognized as connected — and evolving according to a divine time plan.

On our planet, this unified plan plays out in a coherent way because everyone is connected to one and the same Global Mind, as evidenced in the book. Going from the unity of pre-history through the separation of civilization, the process of return to unity on a higher level has now begun.

This knowledge remains largely unknown. Nonetheless, based on the Mayan calendar- and the new insights that have only been possible after the shift –The Global Mind and the Rise of Civilization explains 72 factors that previously have not been understood, including where the human mind comes from, what it is and the role of its “downloading” in shaping the early civilizations of humanity. 72-things-

As an increasing number of people awaken, says Dr Calleman, we will also be able to create an external world based on unity consciousness, according to the principle of “As Inside-So Outside.” Through his extensive scholarship, Dr Calleman has shown that through the connections all humans have with the Global Mind, we, as a species, have gone through an evolution from unity to separation and are now on our way back to unity.

This is the true message of the Mayan calendar.

Dr. Carl Calleman

I was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1950 and my scholarly career is now beginning on its third phase. The first phase was training and practice as a professional scientist in the years 1974-93. I got my PhD in Physical Biology under the mentorship of a member of the Nobel committees exposing me to a high level of international science. Later, as a Senior Researcher at the University of Washington I have written a number of extensively quoted articles in the scientific literature in the fields of Environmental Science, Chemistry and Cancer Research.

The second phase, which began in 1993, has been dedicated to understanding the ancient Mayan calendar and its underlying mechanisms and making this understandable to modern people. A trip to Mexico and Guatemala in 1979 as a backpacker had alerted me to the potential value of the ways of thinking of the ancient Native peoples and had me hooked ever since. The mystery of a calendar that was not based on astronomy stayed with me as I had a sense that it could be an inroad to some of the most fundamental problems of the human existence. Later, as I dedicated myself to this calendar system full time, I have written four books based on this to explore its consequences for consciousness shifts and biological evolution. I have also collaborated with current-day Mayan elders and helped them get their messages across to the world.

Now in 2014 I am in the fortunate position to be able to draw from both of these phases in my background and am starting an entirely original exploration into the human mind and how this influences and dominates humankind, at least at the present time. While my biological background allows me to see some way in which the brain plays a role for the mind, my background with the Mayan calendar also tells me that the mind cannot have its origin in the brain. The Mayan calendar therefore is an absolutely necessary component in any attempt to understand what the mind is and its origin and it is from this that we can understand shifts in consciousness, temporary and long lasting. At the same time I believe that a true paradigm shift can only come out of a rigorous practice of the scientific method upon empirical evidence. Hopefully such work will contribute to free up the human soul to its true spiritual destiny.

Dr. Calleman has a background as an accomplished cancer researcher and environmental scientist followed by a 20-year-long involvement with the Mayan calendar. The latter has included work to promote Mayan elder Don Alejandro Oxlaj, head of the council of elders in Guatemala. As a young scientist, he was mentored to a PhD in Physical Biology by a member of the Nobel committee in Stockholm, and later in his own right, served as a Senior Researcher at the University of Washington in Seattle and a cancer expert for the WHO. In his work with the Mayan calendar, he has lectured worldwide and written three previous books Solving the Greatest Mystery of Our Time, The Mayan calendar and the Transformation of Consciousness and The Purposeful Universe, which have been translated to a total of fourteen languages
