“The School of Life” introduces us to the philosophy of higher consciousness
This excellent video (via “The School of Life”) takes an analytical look at the wild claims of “higher consciousness” made by mystics throughout human history, and how they match up with neuroscience.
It features great animation, highly reminiscent of Terry Gilliam’s cut-out animations for Monty Python. The video also urges a compassionate response to understanding other people, even when they act in destructive ways, instead of labelling them as “evil” or “other.” Most importantly, it cautions us to not becoming addicted to higher consciousness—to appreciate such experiences when they come, but not constantly seek to stay there.
