About this item
An important and fascinating book about the origin, history and impending demise of the ego humanity's collective dysfunction. The Fall is highly enlightening and readable, as the author's acute mind is at all times imbued with the higher faculty of spiritual awareness.-Eckhart Tolle The Fall is a major work that overturns mainstream current thinking on the nature of civilization and human nature. It suggests that it is not natural for human beings to kill each other, for men to oppress women, for individuals to accumulate massive wealth and power, or to abuse nature.
He shows how human beings' pathology of an over-developed sense of ego gives rise to warfare, male domination and other problems, and suggests what we can do to transcend this. Finally the author points to signs that we are entering a new historical phase, where more egalitarian relationships between men and women, a healthier regard for the human body and for nature provide some hope for the future. But whether the human race survives or not may depend on whether we can transcend the sharpened sense of ego which has caused the last 6000 years of social insanity.
