About the Book

The history of mankind can partly be understood as the history of our blindness of our mental limitations! The three fundamental truths that we must face in order to survive/prevail on a long-term basis are as follows: 1. Everything is temporary, including Homo sapiens, his achievements, and his constructs. 2. We are—generally speaking—unwise regarding our conduct of the planet’s sustainable state. We act, in fact, as its vermin, not as its guardians. 3. Only by transcending ourselves will we pass on our valuable and noble essence to our future upgraded children. Sabotaging this transformation will imply our species’ decay and oblivion. Realizing these truths, what did the author of this book do? He followed Rumi’s words: “Start a huge, foolish project, like Noah . . . It makes absolutely no difference what people think of you.” And that was exactly what he did—he built up a new Noah’s ark.

About the Author

BORN IN ISRAEL in 1945, Benjamin Katz fought in two wars, settled in Denmark in 1972, and studied psychology at the University of Copenhagen. He had been practicing as a clinical psychologist since 1980 treating more than thirty thousand clients throughout the years. He is the author of The green man in the orchard, The Fifth Narrative, The Wiser Ascent of Icarus (2004), Global Psychology: Solving Eddie’s Dilemma (2008), I, the Reluctant Creator (a novel, 2012) and A paradigm for a new civilization (2013). Two aspects attracted his attention in the last twenty years: the deteriorating mental and physical state of human beings adjusting to modern life or rejecting it and the state of the planet that goes from bad to worse. Once he had defined at the weighty reasons for the mental and physical health decline of so many people, beyond personal and social problems, he found his mission: to define a new paradigm that aims at eliminating these factors and a new global faith aiming to curb human division and stupidity, modern life stressors, the deterioration of global ecology, consumerism as a lifestyle, unsustainable global economy and demography, and even unsustainable spirituality. In this book the designed paradigm with both new faith and strategic steps aiming at saving us from ourselves by our further evolvement and sustainable lifestyle, away from our current greedy and self-destructive global behavior.
