The future of the body : explorations into the further evolution of human nature by Michael Murphy( Book )
26 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and German and held by 758 libraries worldwide
In the oral and written histories of every culture, there are countless records of men and women who have displayed extraordinary physical, mental, and spiritual capacities. In modern times, those records have been supplemented by scientific studies of exceptional functioning. Are metanormal attributes latent within everyone? What is the evidence that all humanity has unrealized capacities for self-transcendence, that the limits of human growth are not fixed? And are there specific practices that ordinary people can do to develop these abilities? Michael Murphy has studied these questions for over thirty years. In The Future of the Body, he presents evidence for metanormal perception, cognition, movement, vitality, and spiritual development from more than 3,000 sources. Surveying ancient and modern records in medical science, sports, anthropology, the arts, psychical research, comparative religious studies, and dozens of other disciplines, Murphy has created an encyclopedia of exceptional functioning of body, mind, and spirit. He paints a broad and convincing picture of the possibilities of further evolutionary development of human attributes. By studying metanormal abilities under a wide range of conditions, Murphy suggests that we can identify those activities that typically evoke these capacities and assemble them into a coherent program of transformative practice. Such practice, he believes, if embraced by enough people, would constitute a crucial next step in the world's evolutionary adventure

Le monde va mal? Le monde est en crise? En guerre? En état de surchauffe biosphérique? C'est le moment où jamais de sentir, combien il est nécessaire que chacun de nous change, se transforme, mute. Vous dites que c'est impossible? Pas si sûr. De nombreux indices nous indiquent que la condition humaine est actuellement en pleine métamorphose. Dans un livre récent, l'auteur de ##La prophétie des Andes##, s'est associé à deux psychologues, pour réfléchir aux grands changements que subit l'humanité et aux solutions personnelles que chacun peut y apporter. La voie de l'espoir, disent-ils, se trouve dans l'émergence d'une nouvelle conscience que l'on voit poindre lentement partout. [SDM]
