The Great Mind Shift: The revolution is coming

The coming change in the way we see, access and employ consciousness will be a wildcard for most (those reading this book notwithstanding!). Yet when the Great Mind Shift reaches its crescendo the implications will be as far-reaching as is possible to imagine. The seismic shift will be of similar magnitude to the Copernican revolution, the scientific Enlightenment and Darwin’s positing of the theory of natural selection.
The data and historical evidence for the Great Mind Shift are already here, but mainstream thinking in science, education and business is too tunnel-visioned to acknowledge it – yet.

This passage is taken from the passage to the upcoming book by Marcus T Anthony, PhD.

Introduction: A Great Wave descending
What will happen to science, education and society once it is accepted that consciousness is not confined to the brain but is entangled with other minds, nature and the cosmos?
There is a major shift emerging in science and society which will mark a dramatic change in education, business and life itself. This development represents not merely a trend, but heralds a major civilisational
shift in the understanding of humankind’s relationship with t
he universe in which it exists. The revolution I am referring to will occur when it is fully accepted that human consciousness is intimately interwoven with nature and the world. Our minds are not confined to our brains, but extend non-locally through both time and space.
The Great Mind Shift is the acceptance of the truth that this extended mind is real and that consciousness and intelligence are not accidental bi-products of localised physical systems; they comprise a fundamental aspect of both life and cosmos.
 We do not yet fully understand the mechanisms for the processes which mediate the extended mind
i
,  but the evidence for non-local nature of consciousness is now so fully compelling that it cannot be denied. The advent of the Great Mind Shift is just a matter of time. But are you ready for it? The purpose of this book is simple: to alert you to what is happening and to bring to your attention how the Great Mind Shift is likely to impact you and everybody else on the planet. In the prelude I outlined my long-term motivation in writing about the subject-matter of this book. Yet my immediate inspiration for
The Great Mind Shift 
 came in the wake of the recent controversy surrounding the TED
organisation’s decision to censure videos of TEDx
talks by Rupert Sheldrake and Graham Hancock, and also to withdraw the license for the alternative-science focused TEDxWestHollywood event. The latter featured speakers such as ESP researcher Russell Targ, social anthropologist Marilynn Shlitz, and alternative health  practitioner Larry Dossey. TED, under pressure from ultra-conservative scientists and skeptics like Jerry Coyne and PZ Meyer, accused these speakers of perpetrating
―pseudoscience‖.
The public backlash against TED and the pressure groups was considerable, with many thousands of comments being left on the TED discussion boards. Both
 and
videos were subsequently posted on YouTube without TED’s approval,
generating a combined total of a million views in short time.  Notably, the TED censorship story was picked up by numerous social media outlets and  blogs. The response on the net was almost universally in support of the censured talks.
Sheldrake’s
 book
Science Set Free
 quickly skyrocketed into the top ten on several Amazon.com categories. The TED controversy was a watershed moment where a largely informed, intelligent and  popular sentiment rose to challenge entrenched scientific orthodoxy. Many of those commenting on the subject were highly educated individuals with PhDs and degrees in
science. Ironically, both Sheldrake’s and Hancock’s talks addressed the issue of mainstream
 
 
science having become dogmatic. They highlighted science’s failings in refusing to address
recent data and arguments about the nature of consciousness. The TED controversy shows clearly that there is huge support for intelligent scientific and  philosophical discussion about the frontiers of consciousness and science. It is my contention that the number will only grow in the coming years. Chances are you picked up this book because you have an interest in such ideas and are excited about where they might take us. If you are like me you have probably had direct experiences of the extended mind
 – 
 perhaps even spiritual or mystical experiences
 – 
 and feel that they are an important part of your life experience. There is also a good chance that you feel marginalised because there has been little scope for your thoughts to be discussed in public institutions, the media and workplaces. But this is all about the change. This is why I encourage you not to be dissuaded by the conservative thinking that has already run its course and is about to be relegated to the  backburners of history. It is my hope that people like you
 – 
 deep thinkers, entrepreneurs, innovators, creators and those with small business interests - will find this
 book’s insights and findings highly
thought-provoking. We live in an age when full-time, steady employment is becoming increasingly difficult to find, and where a burgeoning number of individuals are self-employed. They are relying on their innate intelligence to make their way in the world. The Great Mind Shift will provide great opportunities for those with a little foresight and a spirit of adventure. I also invite you to explore the genuine possibility that the revolutionary shift I am writing about opens ways for you to expand your innate intelligence; and to develop a more intimate and joyful experience of life and work.
The shift towards Integrated Intelligence
There is a tendency for discussions about the extended mind, ESP, clairvoyance and so on to  become strongly polarised into a fight between proponents and skeptics. While part of what you will read in
The Great Mind Shift 
 will highlight the key debates, I take the view that such arguments rarely alter the worldview of the debaters, and much energy can be wasted rehashing the same issues over and over again. The position I take is that the scientific, historical and anecdotal evidence for the non-local nature of consciousness is now strong, and that it will only get stronger in the coming years. The data is now compelling enough to begin to ask what this shift in understanding means for all of us. While much remains imprecise, there is somehting that we can be confident of. With this dramatic shift in our perception of mind, the human intellect will be greatly expanded by what I call
Integrated Intelligence
– 
 the successful employment of the extended mind in living fully and in solving problems. I predict that Integrated Intelligence will not merely be technologically enhanced, as some of you might be thinking. What I have seen and experienced from my own life experience and extensive research is that Integrated Intelligence is an innate human capacity; and the Great Mind Shift will grant implicit  permission for that intelligence to flourish in homes, in education and in workplaces. It will enhance perception, wellbeing and healing. It will also revolutionise research, creativity and
