Patricia Albere and Barbara Marx Hubbard

Join Patricia Albere and world renowned futurist, visionary and social innovator, Barbara Marx Hubbard to discuss Barbara’s experience of awakening to becoming a ‘Universal Being’.  She was given through transmission a sacred map and incremental process to assist people to enter into a similar awakening through 52 codes.  Join us for this transformative conversation.

Buckminster Fuller has called Barbara Marx Hubbard “the best informed human now alive regarding futurism and the foresights it has produced.” Widely regarded as his philosophical heir, Barbara is a social innovator, visionary, futurist, author, educator and leader in the new worldview of conscious evolution. She is founder and president of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution. She is an evolutionary thinker who believes that global change happens when we work collectively and selflessly for the greater good. As a prolific author and educator, Barbara has written seven books on social and planetary evolution.  She has produced, hosted, and contributed to countless documentaries seen by millions of people around the world.  In conjunction with the Shift Network, Barbara co-produced the worldwide “Birth 2012″ multi-media event that was seen as a historic turning point in exposing the social, spiritual, scientific, and technological potential in humanity.

    I just listened to your conversation with Barbara Marx Hubbard from 3/2015 on your website where
    Barbara introduces her term HOMO UNIVERSALIS. Barbara uses the butterfly as her metaphor for the
    birth of homo universalis, including the butterfly’s own life phases as it emerges from caterpillar
    to butterfly and its wet-wing vulnerable phase. Listening to her explanation of the evolutionary
    process and the emergent birth of the new species and its capabilities and signals, the voice
    inside me showed me the butterfly falls short as a metaphor. The more accurate metaphor is a

    The cicada is less known to Americans and more familiar to the Japanese, and the butterfly is
    more familiar to Americans. But the vision of the new species that Barbara describes really fits
    cicadas better. The cicada, like the butterfy, spends its beginnings in a larval state.
    How long it takes to emerge from the larval state depends on the species–there are those
    who only emerge from underground after 7 years, I believe there are some which take 11 or 13 years,
    but there are some take 17 years! (We had the 17 year ones a few years ago in the Northeast.) Regardless
    of the species, when they emerge above ground, they have limited time to come out of their
    shells, and when they are free of their shells, they cannot fly right away because their wings are moist and
    must dry (like the butterfly), so some crawl up a tree trunk or other cover, where their empty
    shells can later be found.

    What happens next is really where the butterfly falls short to paint the pattern of homo u. as
    Barbara describes it. After the cicada crawl out from underground, slowly emerge from their
    shells and successfully fly, the male cicada sing out, each species with its own distinct call,
    and the females follow the sound of the call to find them. The air, the sky, no, the
    atmosphere, resonates with their songs. They only have about a week to find each other
    and lay the eggs of the next generation. Those who come above ground too early or too late
    have no part in creating the next generation nor will they have the comfort or joy of hearing
    their own kind out there (how evolution works!). But those who come out at the same time rely on
    the frequencies of their songs to mark their kind (homo u. flocks) and allow the others
    of their kind to find them. It is how the collective find each other among the wilderness.

    Summers in Japan are enveloped in the frequencies of the different species of cicada, and to
    those of us who are familiar with them, we recognize them, we distinguish them, and almost
    can resonate with them. Although most Americans in the Northeast found the 17-year cicada’s
    emergence a nuisance, the Japanese take in their cicada’s songs as a sign of summer, as a sign of
    nature in balance, and as another reminder of the diversity of mother nature’s expressions.
    Indeed, it can be very soothing to hear with a cold refreshment and a soft breeze. And the
    resonance stays with you, until the next time.
