New Kids

I was reading a most interesting book lately which encompasses a sort of road map to the coming changes in human consciousness, and the idea that there is a pivotal shift in who and what we are as human beings. We are giving birth literally and figuratively to a new type of child.

I will quote from P.M.H. Atwater’s, book entitled, “Children of the Fifth World”.  The author states, “Today, the ADHD mutation has suddenly leapt sky-high, up 600% in the US population since the 1990’s, with a significant rise in other countries as well. Thomas Edison had it, so did many other inventors and far thinkers. For this reason, it is also called the Edison Gene.”

So, what does this all mean?  The author uses a quote by Thomas Armstrong, in which he says people with conditions like ADHD, dyslexia and mood disorders are routinely labeled disabled.  Differences among brains are as enriching and essential as differences among plants and animals.  As an example the author tells us that, “dyslexics often have minds that visualize clearly in three dimensions.  Those with ADHD have a more diffuse attention style, and the autistic relate to objects better than people.”  This type of child or adult seems to be re-ordered rather than disordered. We have to remember, whether as a parent, mentor, teacher or friend, these people are unique in their own way.  They are multi-sensory living in a multi-universe and they relate to the world in entirely different ways as even the previous generation did. In “Children of The Fifth World”, the author tells us these kids have a universal credo which is: Expect to live your life with others who are different from you and it’s okay.  Your intention is who you are.  No need to defend it.   We are all in this together and there are no free passes.
