     The author says the question that has priority ' is whether the planet can survive the intelligence that it has itself brought forth'. This is, at this stage of the evolutionary process, the planet's community is now totally dependent on man's intelligence. Can this realization bring forth an intelligence that will no longer separate man from cosmos and man from man?
    Cooperation cannot come about when one either fearfully avoids conflict either mindlessly gives in to it.

    To my knowledge, two teachers have most eloquently spoken of this whole issue and both exemplify ' that highest state of tension the organism can bear creatively': J.Krishnamurti and Andrew Cohen.
