This page contains various resources (website links, books, movies, and thoughts) involving a "changing of the guard," a changing of the consciousness from the idea of separation to connection. I hope that the information on this page and on the various websites will challenge you to go beyond your usual thinking and that you will critically contextualize that which is present on this page and on the various websites as well. How does one know that one is a "human" being?
I have not read all of the books or watched all of the movies below, just so you know. If you would like to discuss any of the information below with me, then please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank-you. Take care. Peace be unto you. Until then.
