According to some inside sources who wish to remain anonymous, Pope Francis wants the Jeusuit Order to embrace for humankind evolving a 6th faculty, a telepathic sense that will allow us to emotionally and intellectually connect with this alien race. Biological evolution has seen the bifurcation of the sense of self from the universe. In the same way that life forms evolved experiential ways to ‘hear’ sound vibrations and ‘see’ light waves, the 6th sense will be the next evolution of our senses and will unify our experience of the universe
This is the faculty we’re looking for in the Ultimate Other–not intellect, dialectical thinking, technology or weapons system, but rather the ability to see a shape in the void, a purpose in the infinite see of undifferentiated consciousness, a meaningful pattern in the inchoate quantum field that unfolded time and matter itself. Is there a consciousness at the center of the void and is it responsive to us? Can we use what we’ve learned from quantum physics to direct a new human intentionality and manifest a new reality on the face of the Earth? Is an advanced alien intelligence waiting to see if we can join the galactic neighborhood in peacefully exploring the mysteries of the cosmos?
Reminds one of the metaphor of the perfect monarch butterfly, which sought to wrest itself loose of its cocoon. One thread of its newly formed silk gossamer wings held it back. A little boy, who was obsessed with freeing this perfect specimen, cut it loose from this thread, only to find the monarch butterfly couldn’t fly because its muscle structure depended on the full development of that final thread. So too does the human race depend on the development of the thread of our 6th sense in order to evolve a new global consciousness (the noosphere), turn down the war machine, cleanse the Earth of its various physical and psychological contaminants and learn our true place in the cosmos.
