Patterns of the Present

- from the perspective of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother

by Georges Van Vrekhem

A positive interpretation of the global situation

'Patterns of the Present' is an account of the present situation of mankind and the world it lives in. On the threshold of the new millennium countless pages have been written on the meaning of our world and its possible development. The conclusions in most cases were depressing - man would become an automaton in a sci-fi world.

Georges Van Vrekhem, Aurovilian, puts the present predicament of humanity in the perspective of the evolutionary vision of Auroville's founders, Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. The result is a positive interpretation of the global situation.

The meaning of history, the globalisation of our planet, the values presented by East and West, their meeting and reciprocal fertilisation, and the future evolution of mankind are presented from an often surprising perspective in chapters with titles such as: The big picture - The avataric field - East and West - Reason on trial - Science, scientism, modern technology - The supramental 'catastrophe' - The future of humanity.

'Patterns' is a companion volume to 'Overman': 'The Intermediary between the Human and the Supramental Being'.
