Default Re: Who IS Barbara Marx Hubbard? Hmmmmm?

Bugger off troll. You couldn't even answer a simple question.

Barbara Marx Hubbard (born Barbara Marx in 1929) is a prolific New Age writer and public speaker.

She married the artist Earl Hubbard, whom she met while in Paris. As of 2003, she is the mother of five and grandmother of six.

Hubbard believes that humanity, having "come to possess the powers that we used to attribute to the gods", is presently in a critical and dangerous "Late Transition" to "the next stage of human evolution" which began in 1945 with the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. She promotes the idea of Conscious Evolution, defined as "evolution of evolution, from unconscious to conscious choice" or "an awakening of a 'memory' that resides in the synthesis of human knowing, from spiritual to social to scientific", as "the only solution" for avoiding global destruction and entering into a utopian "future of immeasurable possibilities."

While she frequently mentions technology as a major component of how humanity will "co-create" its future, she is clear that Conscious Evolution is "at the core a spiritually-motivated endeavor." Her broad and unattributed claims about the potential for technologies such as scalable quantum computing, clinical immortality, unlimited zero point energy, and an integrated space/Earth environment do not enjoy widespread scientific consensus.

The importance of population control is also a recurrent theme in Hubbard's work. In The Revelation: A Message of Hope for the New Millennium she writes:

[In 1966] I saw, perhaps most fundamentally of all, that the vast effort of humanity to "be fruitful and multiply" would have to be curtailed in our generation. One more doubling of the world population will destroy our life support system. Our Mother will not support us if we continue to grow in numbers! We must stop.
She is widely regarded as the philosophical heir to Buckminster Fuller, who once described her as "the best informed human now alive regarding Futurism". She also names Abraham Maslow and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin as major influences.
Interesting, shadow. Thanks for the info. It sounds like the basic dogma of the New Aeoners. I guess this hubbard is old school. Sound like a Blavatsky-ish 'Worker of Light'.

I'm a Christian. And Christians are not against expanding consciousness. It is a fundamental flaw of the New Age to think that Christianity has no more mysteries to impart to mankind.

In fact, what all New Agers from Illuminism on down do not seem to recognize, is by means of their 'expanding consciousness' in the world, the necessary balancing effect of Christianity will take place.

Actually, real Illuminists must know this. If they do not, then I do not consider them to really be aware of what they are dealing with. They MUST know that it is only a matter of time.

I think the only real strategy was to attempt to create a closed-universe. If this were done, then the judgement could not come. This is a warped delusion of Satan, but it was the only plan for delaying the inevitable.

So, Hubbard wants consciousness to expand. She should be careful what she wishes for. It may just happen. But not the way she expected.

She looks like a wild-eyed new ager. These types always look like a deer standing in the road staring at oncoming headlights.
