    "Radical Truth, as always, is completely and entirely available only in the
    timeless present. It is simply that, as consciousness on the whole
    continues to evolve and develop, in a now planetary fashion, then global
    awareness (which is the a transcendence of any narrow parochialism) becomes
    increasingly easier, more obvious, more appealing -- and therefore, I
    believe, more likely. We might speculate, with Sheldrake, that this is the
    effect of a morphic field, in any event, the evolutionary accumulation
    seems undeniable." [Ken Wilber, The Eye of the Spirit, p. 66]

    So might I speculate about non-corporeal entities (such as morphic fields),
    with Sheldrake and Wilber. Is it nuts to speculate, or are you demanding
    that we all stay faithful to modernist common sense?
