A New Paradigm for a New World: Ervin Laszlo and Edgar Mitchell in Dialogue

Book is available on


More and more people are asking themselves, „What is really the nature of the world I live in? And what can I do about it?”

If you happen to be one of these people and feel that there must be a deeper reality in this world, this exciting dialogue between two of the world’s eminent thought leaders on the topics of space, time, oneness and consciousness will speak to you.

Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon, pilot of the lunar module of Apollo Fourteen, founder of IONS, had a mind-changing episode during space travel, when seeing our Earth in the larger perspective. This led him to feel the unity of all things in the universe, and to experience them as an essential oneness.Feeling this oneness may be our key to a better understanding of reality. It is the secret of a healthy life and a sustainable world, the source of feelings of empathy and solidarity.

As Ervin Laszlo notes, a paradigm shift is on the horizon. The wholeness at the roots of the universe is becoming better understood. He warns that without moving beyond the old, selfish, self-centered, fragmentary way of thinking our world will come to pieces. On the other hand, if we use the oneness of the world discovered in the sciences we could create a peaceful and sustainable world with cooperation and solidarity. In this world love has a deeper meaning. It is an expression of the „entanglement” of one human being with another – with all human beings and with nature. As Mitchell felt on the way back from the moon, we can “come home” to our precious planet. This dialogue highlights the importance of coming home and its urgency on this precious and now deeply endangered planet.
