People have taken IQ tests, but strangely, no compassion aptitude tests (CAT). Yet, mind and emotions need to be seen as two different parts of the same spectrum, says holistic thinker Henryk Skolimowski. If the human psyche, having taken an unprecendented battering this century, is to be mended. this cannot be accomplished either through the offices of dusty philosophical treatises or popular psychological fixes, only by our arriving at a new way of looking at the world. In a grand theory of participatory mind building on the insights of thinkers, such as Theilhard de Chardin and Henri Bergson, as well as comtemporaries, Dobzhansky and Gregory Bateson, the author points to a new order brought about by a Western mind returning to then re-integrating the spiritual. This quest for fresh perspectives as the 21st century approaches has now become the hallmark of the times.
