Abstract

In 1913, Sigmund Freud (1856–1939) developed in his book Totem and Taboo, general ideas about humankind’s evolution over the ages. He postulated three stages for humankind’s evolution from prehistoric times up to the present and differentiated between a first phase of animism and magic, a second religious and a third phase of scientific paradigms. Only hundred years after Freud postulated his ideas, humankind is entering a fourth phase which, to everybody’s surprise, again is an animistic-holistic paradigm. This time, however, this new paradigm is based on concepts and ideas from science, i.e., quantum physics and the theory of self-organisation. Corresponding to the scientific developments, a new metaphysical worldview was also presented by A Course in Miracles, which for the first time in history, is in complete agreement with the new scientific theories of quantum physics and self organisation and presents an entirely new world view for the coming ages.
