The Future of Humanity is a dialogue between Krishnamurti and David Bohm which took place in England in 1983.Starting with the questions – Are psychologists really concerned with the future of man? Are they concerned with the human being conforming to the present society, or going beyond that? – the conversation embarks on the incredible journey of the unconditioned mind and asks if the consciousness of mankind can be changed through time.
As discussed intelligently by Krishnamurti and Bohm in the following video, I don’t think many people will take the time to contemplate seriously on the psychological divisions created by our own thought processes.
This conditioning we call knowledge, which has been accumulated in the past, has contributed towards making us ever more divisive. This has unfortunately caused conflict within ourselves and with each other.
As I no doubt believe, those would-be masters who hold power and who wish nothing more than for us to fight each other rather than fight them, have conveniently used every indoctrinating tool at their disposal. Be it the imparting of divisive knowledge carried out by the political system, educational system, religion, and every ideology or authority figure we choose to accept as truth.
Right this minute, we need to look within ourselves to liberate our minds from this conditioning so that unity and peace can hopefully be achieved, not only within but more importantly the world too. But somehow, I don’t think we will see any sort of positive change anytime soon – especially not in my lifetime.
