Host Janet Kira Lessin interviews M. A. Carrano (Part II) with Ethan Indigo Smith on Cosmic Consciousness on Tuesday, August 19, 2014 from 3 to 4 PM, HST (Hawaiian time) on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/aquarianradio/2014/08/20/cosmic-consciousness-m-a-carrano-ethan-indigo-smith-with-janet-kira-lessin.
The subject of this episode is THE AGE OF PROMETHEUS. In it Michael (M.A.) discusses his theory of civilization as a fully conscious, self-reflexive superorganism which he calls Prometheus. Prometheus is a system in which human beings are individual cells in the planetary corpus and historical trends are intelligently organized and cybernetically directed through PROMETHEUS’ metabolic processes, which we experience as economic forces that incentive actions and reactions in the private sector.
“M.A. Carrano is an experimental philosopher and systems consultant living and working out of Yale-New Haven, Connecticut, as the Senior Intelligence Analyst and Vice President of Avatar Paradigms: a consulting agency whose mission is to bring the message of holism, synergy and conscious evolution into the homes, universities and corporate board rooms throughout the United States. As a former U.S. Congressional candidate and author of Asleep in the Helix: Survival & the Science of Self-Realization, at present Carrano resides as the sitting Chair of Philosophy for The Libertarian Party of Connecticut as well as an acting representative of the Global Association of Systems Thinkers.
Legend of Prometheus
PROMETHEUS was the Titan god of forethought and crafty counsel who was entrusted with the task of moulding mankind out of clay. His attempts to better the lives of his creation brought him into direct conflict with Zeus. Firstly he tricked the gods out of the best portion of the sacrificial feast, acquiring the meat for the feasting of man.
Then, when Zeus withheld fire, he stole it from heaven and delivered it to mortal kind hidden inside a fennel-stalk. As punishment for these rebellious acts, Zeus ordered the creation of Pandora(the first woman) as a means to deliver misfortune into the house of man, or as a way to cheat mankind of the company of the good spirits. Prometheus meanwhile, was arrested and bound to a stake on Mount Kaukasos where an eagle was set to feed upon his ever-regenerating liver (or, some say, heart). Generations later the great hero Herakles came along and released the old Titan from his torture.
