'Nicanor Perlas paints the dramatic dilemma of mankind today as it stands, torn in the tension field of the advancement of outer scientific intelligence and an inner, albeit mostly unconscious, knowing of the spirit within and around us. He describes the fragile and delicate solution as the living potential within each individual, as expressed in Rudolf Steiner's words: "knowledge is man's active participation in what the beings and processes of the spiritual and physical world convey to him."'--Joan Sleigh, Executive Council, Goetheanum
