Children Of The Forest
Wright asks, Are we the lost children of the forest?
Tony will be exploring the connection between the accelerating
expansion, sudden stall and subsequent shrinkage of our brain, our
unusual juvenile traits and our ancestral symbiotic relationship
with the reproductive organs of plants.
Did the breakdown of our unique symbiotic
relationship with fruit, and the impact it had on our brain, result
in the mythos of a lost golden age of innocence?
A fall from grace and the emergence of an
increasingly delusional and dysfunctional state of mind is a theme
that permeates the spiritual and religious traditions.
If our collective self destructive
behaviour is simply the result of a detrimental change in our neural
system that has caused our brain to overly mature, then restoring
that lost state of innocence may be the only option we have to avoid
our rapid descent into further insanity.
While a student at Edinburgh Botanic
Gardens and preparing a short dissertation entitled ‘The Genetic
Manipulation of Plants’, the subconscious seeds of a revolutionary
new theory were sown in Tony Wright’s mind.
Over the next 20 years a mixture of
scientific curiosity and radical self-experimentation resulted in
the development of a simple idea that explains the emergence of
increasingly anomalous traits in human evolution. From the rapid and
accelerating expansion of our large brain to the mysteries of our
mind and the origins of spiritual practice, Tony has developed a new
context in which we may understand who we are and has provided a
framework for the reunification of the academic and spiritual
science of consciousness.
Working independently and alone, the fruits
of his labour are only now beginning to reach a wider audience
through the recent publication of ‘Return to the Brain of Eden’.
Despite the major practical and philosophical implications, initial
reaction has been exceptionally favourable. Tony is now focused on
bringing this modern translation of very ancient wisdom into
mainstream culture in the hope that it may help provide a way out of
the self-imposed madness we currently mistake as normality.
