9780060647964: The Ending of Time

This very important work offers penetrating dialogues between the great spiritual leader and the renowned physicist that shed light on the fundamental nature of existence. Krishnamurti and David Bohm probe such questions as ‘why has humanity made thought so important in every aspect of life? How does one cleanse the mind of the ‘accumulation of time’ and break the ‘pattern of ego -centered activity’?

The Ending of Time concludes by referring to the wrong turn humanity has taken, but does not see this as something from which there is no escape. There is an insistence that mankind can change fundamentally; but this requires going from one’s narrow and particular interests toward the general, and ultimately moving still deeper into that purity of compassion, love and intelligence that originates beyond thought, time, or even emptiness.

From the Back Cover:

This very important work offers penetrating dialogues between the great spiritual leader and the renowned physicist that shed light on fundamental issues of existence. The starting point of this in-depth, sustained discussion is the question: 'Has humanity taken a wrong turn, which has brought about endless division, conflict, and destruction?' This leads to an exploration of the nature of humanity and a person's relationship to society, and new insights on human thought, death, awakening insight, cosmic order, and the problem of the fragmented mind.

Krishnamurti and David Bohm probe such questions as: Is the source of human conflict the individual's inability to face that fact of what he or she actually is, psychologically, resulting in the imposition of an illusory goal of what one must try to become? Why has humanity made thought so important in every aspect of life? Has technical and time-restricted thought been allowed to slip over into more subtle areas of functioning, where it is inappropriate? How does one cleanse the mind of the 'accumulation of time' and break 'the pattern of ego-centred activity?' Can someone who has achieved self-transcendent insight help free others from the world of illusion? Is it possible that, through insight, the brain can renew itself, healing the damage caused by years of wrong function?

'The Ending of Time' concludes by referring again to the wrong turn humanity has taken. But this is not seen as something from which there is no escape. There is an insistence that humankind can change fundamentally; but this requires going from one's narrow and particular interests toward the general, and ultimately moving still deeper into that purity of compassion, love, and intelligence that originates in the ground beyond thought, beyond time, even beyond emptiness. This means giving one's mind, one's heart, one's whole being, to the inquiry carried on throughout these discussions.

J. Krishnamurti devoted his life to counseling and teaching.

David Bohm is Professor Emeritus of Physics at the University of London. His books include 'Quantum Theory, Causality and Chance in Modern Physics,' and 'Wholeness and the Implicate Order'
