Liner Notes:

The Great Millennial fake out! Are we being duped, or can we look back and see a link between ancient wisdom and our Y2K problems? For literally 1000’s of years, numerous individuals and civilizations have prophesized the great transformations of our world. As we await the arrival of the next millennium, it appears we have become obsessed with predicting our future. But to truly fathom what lies ahead, we’ll have to await the arrival of time itself. For the manifestation of the next age may not become apparent for another 500 years.

From our earliest moments in life, our body begins to split from our spirit. It is precisely this duality which fragments our understanding of who we are. Beyond this inner breach of knowing, is the everyday battleground where we are forced to judge which philosophy, religion, level of consciousness, work of art, or value system is “best”. Philosopher Ken Wilber suggests that by examining each of these levels of mind as though their diversity formed a spectrum of consciousness, analogous to the spectrums of light and sound, we might better serve our quest for spiritual oneness. When we began to employ Wilber’s model to interpret our world, mankind will evolve towards the more peaceful and tolerant society envisioned by those who have predicted the coming of the Aquarian Age. Although intellectual theory is significant, the execution of ideas is of ultimate importance. We need to assert “real” shifts in our perception and behavior. Too many institutions and individuals in the western world are guided by an outdated philosophy. What is needed is a new paradigm.

The music on this CD was inspired by numerous sources and offers both a snapshot of where we are now, and what we might need to move forward. It takes a village to safeguard the needs of the planet, our cultures and families. By using technology to serve these needs in harmony with compassionate communication, humanity may be capable of transforming the selfish institutions (conspiracies) which dominate our economic landscape. If our destiny is foretold by the cosmos, we can no longer ignore universal wisdom.

Andy Milne
