This book begins by looking at how intelligence developed through physical, emotional, mental and spiritual phases during recent millennia. These dimensions of intelligence were enriched as different cultures introduced other complementary qualities of consciousness. The intriguing patterns this growth followed, invite the use of a little understood natural cycle to model this process. - The correspondence between these patterns and this cycle is described by the ways cultures thrived after learning new skills. This growth was discovered from exploring how intelligence has been enriched by the survival strategies that have come down to us through the millennia. Some still serve us well while others have led to the complex global crises facing us and future generations. - The fascinating model for our emerging intelligence, derived from the hidden pattern of correspondence discovered, is successfully tested. This result comes from tracing the path followed by our ancestors since the birth of our imagination. It describes the backdrop of the many ages with life endlessly inspiring and informing the imagination and endeavour, we all depend on.-This forty thousand year perspective provides us with a thought provoking correlation with Our Emerging Consciousness. The original insights from this overview will serve the challenges and opportunities many global communities now agree need our urgent attention. The wisdom struggling to emerge can be helped by us all.
