As the book title implies there are two principle types of evolution. The most well known is the Darwinian that concerns the physical form. On the other hand, evolution in consciousness concerns the life process that is us, and which is non-material or formless. In order for the life process to find a means to express itself it must have a form as a point of activity as well as objectivity. The book deals with the nature of the “aspects” that in a sense relate to what most of us know as the trinity, although it is not the trinity we may have met in church.
Form evolution is usually viewed like a “tree of life” where forms seem to naturally grow progressively from one into another, but this tendency only exists in nature to a limited extent. It is otherwise necessary for conscious direction from the second Aspect to provide for a basis of form development. Thus all forms that we see in nature are the product of some subjective mind. Once a new form is created it can maintain itself, and to some extent alter itself through a process termed natural selection.
This book is comprised of five parts plus an appendix. The approach is to build the esoteric concepts around the nature, and development of man over millions of years. Through an understanding of our own being we can first begin to recognize the reality of the subjective worlds that include a part of our own being.
The appendix covers three topics that have been separated from the main body of the book, and which provide additional material of particular interest and importance. This approach was taken so as not to distract the reader from the central topic. While no pictures are included, a series of eight figures as well as numerous tables are presented to give the reader a visual point to assemble and correlate what is in effect a new way of thinking about ourselves, our world, and the universe. Each of the five parts will now be examined to bring out some of the principle concepts presented in the book.
A blog is included to provide additional insight into this complex subject.
