We have evolved to the state where one can take an active part in increasing their level of intelligence as well as achieving higher states of consciousness. This in turn can aid humankind in restructuring its world view and greatly improve our chance for survival. This book attempts to add new material to this emerging cosmic story. It is both surprising and exciting to find that our evolving world view is an extension of prior beliefs. Some stories of creation based upon mythology were amazingly accurate, although incomplete, when viewed through our more sophisticated scientific perspective. Science has gone a long way toward validating humankind's intuitive spiritual insights. When similar concepts are generated from two seemingly different disciplines of opposite polarity, such as science and spirituality, this I believe gives greater credibility to those concepts than either discipline would achieve on its own.
This text represents the fourth edition of the Integrated Theory of Intelligence. The first was completed in 1984. The present edition is much more elaborate than the first; however, it is essentially unchanged in basic concept. The present edition was written as an attempt to respond to various criticisms made by certain individuals who have already been acknowledged. I will now begin working on the fifth edition as I receive additional feedback from all those who take the time to respond.
