This is only a small section of the whole 90 minute interview NewRealities did with Bruce Lipton in August, 2000.
For the whole interview, in 3 parts go to the Exclusive video section of this website:
In this section Lipton lays out the next phase of our evolution:
Alan Steinfeld: As organisms, we have developed from the organelles of cells to the organs of animals to the organizations of cultures. Human development has now covered the planet with a web of ideas. What is the next phase of evolution for the individual? Bruce Lipton: Our evolution is not with the individual. We already have all the information capacity that we are capable of dealing with as individuals. Our evolution is the evolution of community. In reality, I am a bustling community of 50 billion single cells sharing organization in a community of cells to a create a larger entity that will have a greater life. The human body is a cell that exists as a community of cells functioning as a single unit. No matter how complex we are, there are no new functions in my human body that is not already present in a single cell. The human is a reiteration of a cell. A community of humans is like a multi-cellular organism that came together to share awareness to make a new whole. We human beings are each individuals cells coming together to form a community to share awareness to create one living organism called humanity. We are not humans until we create humanity. This is when we all recognize that we are all cells in the same living organism working in a coherent capacity. When we come together as a one, we have created the next level of evolution.
When humanity is complete, the earth as an organism completes its evolution as a living, breathing, pulsing being — Gaia. This completion as a single unit is equivalent, on a fractal level, to the completion of the single cell.
AS: Julian Huxley said, "Humanity is nothing else than evolution becoming conscious of itself."
BL: The internet is an evolutionary leap. It is the equivalent of the communication system by which all the cells of my body are coherent. So now we have the ability for all the cells in our new human organization — humanity — to communicate with each other and share information. This is why the cells came together in the first place.
AS: So what is next step?
BL: You tell me! According to this pattern, when the cohesive functional unit like the single cell was complete in its evolution, what was its next phase of evolution?
AS: To hook up with other complete cells to form a greater multi-cellular organism.
BL: Right. And when humans are complete in their evolution as individuals, what was their next step?
AS: To hook up with other humans and form communities.
BL: So when the earth completes its evolution with humans, coming together as humanity, functioning as coherent unique receptor sites, what is the next phase?
AS: To hook up with other ones.
BL: Yes! When we as humanity are at the level of a unity, with a single voice, that will allow us to speak as a one. And that will allow us to speak with other Ones.
AS: Ah ha! Thank you.
At that point in the interview I had an epiphany. I realized, that in a very concrete way, we absolutely need to know we are all equal parts of one greater living being. Then we can come together as conscious elements of this greater whole to share our awareness for the common benefit of all. I feel this is when we will evolve out of our cosmic isolation and establish relationships with other ones. It is only then that we will formally meet the other planetary civilizations and become part of the greater Galactic community.
