Choosing Revhumanism in Apocalyptic Times
At this time with robots, Artificial Intelligence, and the Singularity on the horizon we’ve reached a crossroads for the future of humanity—where we can either choose to put faith in technology to inspire us and lead the way (Transhumanism)—or choose to put faith in life force energy in each of us, the Earth, and the Cosmos (Revhumanism).
Long Prophesied Decision Point
Technologies are not inherently evil—the risk of loss of sovereignty comes from idolizing technologies as higher, greater, or more than a living conscious Cosmos, or God.
We can see we have reached a decision point that was prophesied thousands of years ago by many spiritual faiths and traditions. A picture of this decision point was literally carved in stone on the Hopi Prophecy Rock near Oraibi, Arizona. This rock tells the story of three previous human worlds being destroyed when people became greedy, worshiped technology as if it were a god, fought each other, and forgot the original purpose of humanity to honor the Earth as the source of life and sustenance.
Two paths go forward into the future; the higher path places faith on technologies, at the expense of caring for each other and the Earth, and it fizzles out and disappears. The lower path continues on indefinitely, and is for those humans who continue to care for each other and the Earth.
Transhumanism and the Singularity
Biologist Julian Huxley coined the word transhumanism in 1927, writing:
“the human species can, if it wishes, transcend itself. We need a name for this new belief. Perhaps transhumanism will service: man remaining man, but transcending himself by realizing new possibilities.”
Modern-day transhumanism focuses on technologically augmenting human bodies and brains. Transhumanists seek bio-hacking solutions from genetic engineering, robotics, information and nano technologies to bypass natural biological limitations—including mortality. The promise of transhumanism ranges from wearable tech, to prosthetics, all the way to immortality through uploading a person’s neural network to a computer system.
The technological Singularity is envisioned as a point in time—perhaps by 2045—where futurists such as Ray Kurzweil, expect super-intelligent machines with artificial general intelligence to attain awareness at levels that humans cannot unplug or reverse.
This topic is near and dear to my heart: I’d love to see humanity grow into its best qualities, without surrendering agency of free will through over-dependence on technologies. It’s one thing to be shocked to realize we don’t know a friend’s phone number because we’ve come to depend on our mobile phones and devices to remember such things for us, and it’s quite another to reach a point where we stop thinking for ourselves regarding decisions that matter the most.
What is humanity’s ultimate endpoint?
While the Singularity may be unavoidable—mind-matter cyborg transhumans existing in a mechanical cosmos are definitely not my view of the pinnacle of human evolution.
We can envision our optimal future being created by us, based on what we collectively need, love, and imagine. Revhumanism is a philosophy of harmoniously living and co-creating with a living, developing Cosmos—with reverence for the Earth, and other beings.
The Latin “rev” relates to ideas of reviving, regaining, recalling, and growing strong and young again. “Rev” also stands for reverence—a quality that inspires us to live up to our truly highest potential of seeing and respecting the inspiration, light, and consciousness that all of creation shares. Revhumanism invites humans to return to honoring the Earth as the source of life and sustenance.
Revhumanism involves relating with reverence, humility, and empathy with others, with the Earth, and with the Cosmos—inviting us to actuate high-level sovereign agency.
Sovereignty is a key concept in incarnational spirituality, recognizing our sense of living our life with purpose and for some reason. We have an awareness of having some original intent for our life. Sometimes we can get caught up in drama, and forget the purpose we are living with, but we can access and remember this original intention and purpose.
We can observe our thoughts and feelings at higher levels of self, without ‘having buttons pushed.’ We can rise above ‘fight or flight’ reactive responses, and view events free from anger or anguish over the past or anxiety about the future—feeling connection with our Best Possible Future Selves who are loving, joyful, fearless, compassionate, and reverent.
Revhumanism acknowledges that humanity is part of a living, growing Cosmos, with everyone intrinsically having a transcendant divine nature. Revhumanism invites us to live true to our highest potential of embodying more wisdom than cleverness; more hope than cynicism; more humility than hubris; more empathy than apathy; and more reverence than insolence. Revhumanism represents a radical invitation for each of us to be the highest level embodiment of consciousness we wish to see in the world. When we see everyone and everything from the perspective of reverence, doors to adjacent possible realities open where there were no doors before.
Evidence of Human Evolution in the Mandela Effect
Evidence exists that humanity is actuating high levels of sovereign agency that we experience through increased awareness of alternate histories we call the “Mandela Effect.”
The Mandela Effect shows us that histories can change—that our memories of past events can differ noticeably from currently agreed-upon facts. Many people thus remember things that now officially never occurred, such as the heart being located slightly on the left, rather than in the center of our chests, for example. People are now sharing memories of different histories, and sometimes experiencing reality shifts where things appear, disappear, transform, and transport, as well as changes in the experience of time.
Insights from the Mandela Effect provide clues that we all naturally possess ‘quantum super-powers,’ that are best employed in accordance with spiritual wisdom. Shared experiences of Mandela Effects, reality shifts, and miraculous changes to reality demonstrate what profound differences observational perspective can make.
The majority of Mandela Effect experiencers are Empaths; Empaths (aka: Intuitive Feelers) comprise 25% of population, yet experience 75% of Mandela Effects. We see evidence in support of this concept of Subjective (rather than Objective) reality, in recent quantum physics experiments showing observers at the same place and time can witness different events.
We each have the ability to access much larger levels of self than we ordinarily acknowledge. At these levels of self:
— we can gain awareness of potential future events
— we can experience simultaneous possible realities
— we can recognize ways perspective influences reality
— miraculous reality shifts can be experienced
Humanity is actuating high levels of sovereign agency, with natural ‘quantum super-powers’ that are best employed in accordance with spiritual wisdom. Insights from the Mandela Effect and recent studies in quantum physics provide clues by which we can better envision a positive future for humanity founded in wisdom, connection, kindness, reverence, and love.
Choosing Revhumanism in Apocalyptic Times
“Apocalypse” is a word derived from the Greek verb apokalyptein, meaning “to take the cover off,” and is associated with times of unveiling and revelation. We are living through times of great change and unveiling in which our choice of perspective and what we put our faith in—can make all the difference in the future worlds we next experience.
With Humility, we acknowledge there exists a hidden order;
With Empathy, we see through the eyes of our heart;
With Reverence, we remember we are all connected.
Acknowledging our best possible future selves, we remember to keep asking, “How good can it get?”

As always, I encourage you to ask my favorite question any time you get the opportunity: “How good can it get?”
