A Spiritual Vision for Modern Man. From the introduction: “So far as we know, Man is the only species that is deliberately creating conditions which could bring about his own extinction. It seems as though a life force is experimenting with types of expression appropriate to the conditions here and has made many false starts. Could mankind be yet another? This book gives a provisional answer. That answer is YES — unless he wakes up in time to change course. What appears to be a unique feature in the cause of his potential demise is that it is self created. The evolution of his intelligence seems to have run far ahead of his growth in wisdom. Intellect unguided by wisdom spells disaster. It has spawned technologies that enable man to make drastic changes to the environment, to the crust of the earth, the vegetation, rivers, sea and air, and changes to the chemical content of the upper atmosphere, which at present shields us from cosmic radiation harmful to life, is a threatening and imminent possibility. The justification for this statement is summarised in the last chapter of this book — ‘Summary and Conclusions’.”
