Thomas Lombardo, PhD, is director of the Center for Future Consciousness in Glendale, Arizona. He is author of Future Consciousness: The Path To Purposeful Evolution; The Evolution of Future Consciousness; Wisdom, Consciousness, and the Future; and Mind Flight: A Journey Into The Future. He is also writing a four volume series, titled Science Fiction: The Evolutionary Mythology of the Future. The first volume will be published in 2018.
Here he notes that, for decades, he has been fascinated with the yinyang symbol and its philosophical implications. He elaborates on the principle of reciprocity as it manifests in evolution, and in the relationships within various polarities — good and evil, hot and cold, mind and matter. He also explains how the reciprocity principle operates in human sensory perception. He suggests that the universe, itself, has no absolute foundation — but is constituted of elements that are mutually sustaining.
New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is a past vice-president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology; and is the recipient of the Pathfinder Award from that Association for his contributions to the field of human consciousness exploration.
