?New Edition! Revised & Expanded!?This edition contains a new chapter on the global climate change movement: the science, economics, politics and consciousness. It's expanded and includes discussions on modern scientific cartesianism, cultural imprinting, theological practice and mystical phenomena.? The book? opens with a peek into the cosmos at large as seen through the lens of modern science. The next chapter focuses that lens on the fast evolving climate change movement. Then we dig into how we treat one other and the roles we play in secular society. We’ll try to figure out why we need to do the things we do. We ?end by ?explor?ing? the roles public religion plays in public life and the nature of the gods we worship.?Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.2.5.1 The Romantic and The ScientistThe scientific revolution of the 17th Century created the industrial revolution of the 19th. 20th Century acceleration in technological innovation multiplied our ability to dominate. In this Century we will save the planet, as long as it submits to our solutions.Populist climate change consciousness is a sign that scientific fragmentation through specialism has reached an extreme. Our technologies, gadgets, scientific instruments, turned outwardly to dominate and explore the cosmos are transforming our inner world. Climate change alarmism is driving us to return to our original role as stewards of the earth. Ownership of private property is superseded by collective rights. We come; we leave. The lands and waters stay forever. We can no longer say that we own them.Populist climate change consciousness is pre-Cartesian, pre-Capitalist and post-Democratic. It evokes nostalgia for a simpler, more childlike relationship to earth. But this time we’re awake. We’ve got the tools that centuries of science have armed us with. We can’t return to a rear-view nostalgic: a romantic, eco-topian sense of living amidst idyllic nature.

Quarta di copertina

We must keep moving forward with the modern Cartesian agenda.The pre-scientific nature mysticism of populist climate change consciousness and modern Cartesian science are opposing philosophies with numerous differences. Nature mysticism, or pantheism believes that earth is a self-healing organism; Scientific Cartesianism believes that earth is a mechanism that needs to be fixed by man when it breaks. Nature mysticism believes that man needs to fuse himself and his activities with nature; Cartesianism believes that man needs to dominate nature by dividing it up. Nature mysticism believes that nature has a soul and that the cosmos is intelligent; Cartesianism believes that nature has no soul and that the cosmos is random. Nature mysticism sustained man’s religious, social and agricultural cultures with minor damage to nature for hundreds of thousands of years. Scientific Cartesianism has attacked traditional religious, social and agricultural cultures and caused major damage to nature in less than two centuries.IPCC led official climate change consciousness is Cartesian. It represents a magnification of mechanistic philosophy through the global application of scientific methodology. Its approach rests on the conviction that mathematical formulas govern natural processes. If we but input the right algorithms, the desired outcomes will propagate. This is a new form of numerology, or number mysticism: created by computers, not God.Contrary to populist assumption, IPCC led climate change consciousness has never been about a return to the mythic romantic savage at one with pristine nature.
