Kairos comes from the ancient Greek philosophy and represents an undetermined time in which something important happens, a “change of direction”, for example, in the course of the stars. The term kairos came to stand for the “right time”, a privileged opportunity that suddenly open up new paths and possibilities.
The moments of kairos are moments of particular intensity which mark the course of the conversations, the days and the life. Jordi Pigem the course of our adventure on Earth starts now a kairos, a great transformation of which they are a part of our multiple crises, both those that have to do with the ecology of the planet, the global economy, institutions obsolete, crisis of knowledge and human values, etc
The path of expansionism that has guided the course of civilization for millennia now culminates and comes to an end. Not the end of civilization, but the end of that path. […]
We live a unique moment, a kairos. the more we understand its meaning, the better prepared we will be to guide us through its turmoil and emerge into a new reality.
The new reality integrates with rigor physics, economics and neuroscience, areas where there is increasingly more interest.
The crisis of the world today reflect a profound transformation of consciousness and of reality. Is crumbling, a world that is outdated that puts money ahead of people and the abstractions ahead of life. But at the same time, a new reality, stealthily, is being born. In the last hundred years of quantum physics and other areas of knowledge we have been showing that the world is not as we thought. It is not made of objects but of relationships. Is best understood with the language of the imagination, the creativity and the heart than with the laws, formulas, and concepts.
Today, we live between two worlds, between two realities. The author analyzes the contradictions of contemporary economics as a case in which everything that does not work in the old paradigm, in the old reality, and leads us to the new reality fascinating, that today reveals to us the physics and neuroscience. A new reality that is no other than that which they had already anticipated the wise men of many cultures and eras, and which today leads us toward a more just society and a more fulfilling life.
