At the CIW board meeting in March 2015 in Texas, Daniel Schmachtenberger, Founder of the Emergence Project and Director of Research & Development of CIW, gave a fantastic talk about his outrageous dream: that one day, the sentence “We live in a world of outrageous pain” is no longer true.

The vision of the Emergence Project is of an omni-considerate, integrally developed, effectively and spontaneously self-governing global civilization.

Doug is very much in the lineage of Ayn Rand, writing riveting prose, studded with depth and insight.
The book tells the story of Charles Knight: a young, intrepid speculator who sets out to West Africa to seal his investment in the greatest gold discovery ever. What he uncovers instead is violence and fraud—perpetrated by scientists, hitmen, psychopaths, and the U.S. government itself. The only way to strike it rich… and to save himself and those he loves…is his code of intimacy and integrity. Who says speculators can’t be moral actors in The Universe: A Love Story?
In some sense the books focuses on the archetype of the hero—the one living the mythic life—who is called to integrity. Doug’s implicit challenge is to conventional notions of integrity.
But his challenges does not lose itself in a tired moral relativism. Indeed, underneath Casey’s challenge to conventional ethics is the call to a higher integrity and even to a higher obligation, which is called fourth uniquely in the life of every person. Casey in the guise of an exotic adventure demands a higher discernment and responsibility in deciding what Integrity really means.
This very exciting dialogue takes place between Center Co-Founder Marc Gafni, Doug Casey, the epic speculator, investment advisor, philosopher author and Dr Venu Julapalli, Philosopher, doctor and social visionary committed to transforming the future of medicine.

The following was taken from the book Somatics: Reawakening the Mind’s Control of Movement Flexibility and Health by Thomas Hanna:
1. These problems are functional, not structural
The problems which on the surface look to be irreparable breakdowns of the body, are instead malfunctions of the nervous system. Viewed externally, they seem to be about bodies that are degenerating; but viewed internally, these are brains that have lost control of their bodily functions. To use my own terms, these are somatic problems — not bodily problems. They are functional problems — not structural problems. These are problems solvable by the patient — not by the doctor. These are problems reflecting loss of control from the inside of the human system — not a deterioration of bodily parts at the outside of the human system.
2. The functional problems are cases of sensory-motor amnesia.
People who come to me are suffering from non-medical problems. They are outside the reach of medical help, whose services they have exhausted. They are not suffering from infectious diseases, or physical lesions, or biochemical imbalance. They are suffering from a loss of memory; the memory of what it feels like to move certain muscles of their bodies, and the memory of how to go about moving these same muscles.
Their memory loss is, to be specific, sensory-motor amnesia (SMA). I know this to be the case simply because their being shows how certain muscle patterns feel, and how these contractions are accomplished, resulting in an end to their problems. They regain their normal functioning and normal bodily wellbeing without any need for antibiotics for infection or surgery for lesions or drugs for biochemical imbalance.
