Your Parents Lied to You: How to Live Fully and Change the World in the Processby John D. Erickson
Synopses & Reviews
Just a few hundred years ago, nearly everyone in the Western world was completely convinced that the Earth was at the center of the universe. Why?
Our ancestors failed to recognize that just because the Earth looks and feels as though it is stationary, it does not necessarily mean that it is stationary.
Today, nearly everyone in the Western world believes that human beings are intelligent, individual entities that must find their own way through the world. Why?
As we look out upon the world, we may feel that we have a pretty good understanding of the world that we live in and we certainly appear to be separate from one another, but the lesson to be learned from our ancestors is that what seems obvious is not always true. In order to develop a more effective understanding of ourselves and the world we live in, sometimes we need to look beyond the obvious.
