The Future of Consciousness:

A 2012 Omni Reader

Original Summaries of Writings on the Coming Shift

Henry Reed, Ph.D., Editor

Atlantic University

Is the world preparing to make a shift? Is consciousness changing? Does the Mayan calendar speak of a major global event coming on December 21, 2012? What are the other prophecies regarding the future? Are there any new ideas? What about the evolution of consciousness? Is there a future for consciousness? What will it be like? What world trends, divine sources, and earthly changes may be at work to shape our destiny?

These questions, and others related to the future of consciousness, receive answers, sometimes convergent, sometimes diverse. This 448 page anthology of original summaries of many of the books published regarding these themes provides a comparative study of the future. We’ve included sources as diverse as ancient prophecy, studies of evolution, experiments in consciousness, near-death experiences, alien abductions, and more in this one of a kind collection of readings on the future.

No one perspective, or approach, can claim to capture all the nuances of the coming changes. By reading these varied sources, you’ll be able to form your own perceptions of the patterns emerging in both scientific and intuitive arenas of the human imagination.
