It is so nice when we see the Integral perspective showing up in the world around us. In fact, as the integral view awakens within, the world without is seen a fresh and new way. However, where as the outer world and main stream culture can be a manifestation of Integral, it isn’t often that culture explicitly uses Integral to prove a point.
In the recent re-make of the movie “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” there is a scene where the star, Nicole Kidman’s character was being presented with a philosophical “flatland” argument on the nature of humanity. Where the “flatlanded” approach fails to give a satisfying answer, Integral and evolutionary levels illuminate the matter simply and beautifully. Not only is the integral perspective used to encompass the argument but Ken Wilber himself is cited. What better proof that the Integral wave of consciousness has “arrived” than to have it used in pop culture.
Like Nicole Kidman says, “We are evolving, our consciousness is changing”. Yes indeed. And not only is our consciousness evolving and changing, but so too is our culture. It’s about time.
