Video description

Technology is a huge piece of the puzzle for conscious leadership, for global sustainability and all of the work that we're trying to do. However, technology is created by individual consciousness. It ultimately is an artefact of people coming together and building something that, whether it be a phone or whether it be a book or whether it be an entire ICT system or some sort of mind brain interaction toy. So it will continue to develop and express the level of consciousness of those that come together to make it. I know that it can be used to support the development of consciousness of society because it essentially creates a structure through which we think and see the world. If you think about, for example, the internet and the way that it exposes people to many, many different perspectives... Now, you can go into that and only look for things to support you belief system, so you can be googling around for things that only support the way you see the world, but eventually you're going to come across lots and lots of things that give different data for the way that you see the world. That's a sort of technology that basically we're looking into and it's challenging us to take on different perspectives.
There are other technologies that work to support the development of consciousness. These include things like entrainment tools, brain entrainment tools that essentially enable individuals to access different brain states that are more associated with a mindfulness or a meditative practice, so deeper states of relaxation. There are technological tools that essentially you can use, that will help your brain to open up into these states and access and experience the world in a more expansive way. So the role of technology is completely intertwined with the future of leadership and consciousness because it's how we express here, it's what we build to essentially try and anchor our ideas and our vision of what we can become. So for me there's no separation ultimately even between technology and consciousness, because it's an artefact that comes out of individual consciousness and working to create something that will help make the world a better place, hopefully.
