IMPACTS Event at the NC Museum of Art
Friday, June 11, 2010 from 10:00 AM to 2:30 PM (EDT)
Do you know the origins of art for modern humans? Modern humans have been here for about 130,000 years—we are homo sapiens sapiens—yes 2 sapiens. Homo sapiens emerged about 200,000 years ago. The shamans of the San tribe of Africa are believed to be the first artists of modern humans. Consequently, all artists can trace their genealogy back to the San shaman.
The San and their shamans laid the foundation for modern humanity—the foundation for the good parts of us. The bad parts of civilization came after the development of agriculture—just 10,000 years ago. Why did agriculture turn everything upside down? It has to do with the word “capture”.
The shamans were the early artists. What other roles did they fulfill after agriculture emerged?
The IMPACTS of today see the world very much as the San and their shamans saw their world. How is that possible?
I think the current paradigm has needlessly complicated just about everything—but there is a reason for that, and it has to do with 2 major forces battling each other throughout the universe. We see battles on earth but we don’t see them in the cosmos. That really makes no sense, because as you will see everything on earth and throughout the universe is following the exact same model.
My goal is to have an event where you receive maximum value. For this event, you will receive:
A copy of my recent book, The IMPACTS Dynamic--Working Against Dispersal in Human Society and Across the Universe
A printout of an upcoming ebook, The IMPACTS--The World's Most Important Customer--and Much More
A lunch buffet
A one-hour docent-led tour of the new building
A 2-hour presentation of the IMPACTS concept with an emphasis on the role of art - the role it played in the San tribe of Africa and the role it has played since
The opportunity to meet other IMPACTS people. When IMPACTS get together, great things can happen—and often do.
The tour begins at 10 AM, followed by lunch at 11:15, and the presentation at 12:15. We should be finished by 2:30. If you are paying at the door, please arrive around 9:30.
The IMPACTS concept takes a new look at human civilization and the universe and sees things quite differently. Human life is a male-female dichotomy. What if the universe is the same? I think it is.
I hope you can attend the event. I think you will find the new view to be very provocative and a formidable challenge to the current way of looking at the workings of the world and the universe.
