    One thought on “Pain, Sex and Time: A New Outlook on Evolution and the Future of Man

    1. David Michael Smith

      That Heard could have been so incredibly prescient in 1939 is extraordinary. His historical accounts at the beginning of the book were a bit ponderous and academic for my taste, but the concluding chapters regarding the next necessary stage of human evolution -- a leap in consciousness -- seems, to me, the pressing issue of our era.

    2. Greg

      I just read a great little glowing essay on Gerald Heard written in 1939 in Two Cheers for Democracy by E.M. Forster.

    3. Balthasaradell

      couldnt finish it. but i feel that i have to. but i feel that i didnt understand it at times. and at other times i felt like i was acutely aware that this genre called new age has been around for at least 80 years already. so whats really goin on?

    4. Kurtamyd

      Fascinating review of the past 2,000 years of human history although I disagree with the author's concept of how to address the world's woes
