In many spiritual and religious traditions, a trinity of some sort plays an important role. During my research into Volution I discovered that all these trinities seemed to be pointing to the same underlying dynamic. This dynamic can be explained by the toroidal process of manifestation as described in Volution. It seems all the traditions were pointing to their process of creation through their trinity story. To put it another way, life learned to describe its very own process through the lenses and languages of diverse human cultures. This Merry Musing dives into the nature of the trinity and its relevance for our individual and collective journeys today.
It kind of blew my mind when it first dawned on me that linear time is not a fixed quality of the universe but is actually quite a recent invention of the human mind. We spent nearly three million years living life directly in the present in the context of natural cycles. It was only a few thousand years ago that linearity entered our perspective. We have now reached a point in development where we need to re-evaluate that linear perspective and re-balance it with the cyclical. Evolution (and involution) are both products of linear thinking. New science is showing that life actually breathes and spins more like a pulsing torus than climbs the rungs of a ladder. The Merry Musing on Volution explores what that perspective looks like when you apply it to our individual and collective life process.
Embodying the Future – why the body is the key to the future.
In order to navigate successfully through these turbulent times of transition, we need to be able to access the information in the subtle fields. Energy can only be interpreted through the body. In order to reach up to higher dimensions we need to send our roots deeper. This session will explore the role of the body in working with subtle energies, and what we need to do individually and collectively to be able to unlock the promise that this work holds.

This talk gives a summary of Volution Theory and focuses particularly on what I call the Pain and the Promise – the split that happened between humanity and the Earth, and the healing that is required for us to access the subtle realms that will enable us to successfully navigate this transition. It was originally hosted by Puria Kästele for the Conscious Evolution Summit 2020.
I have recently been reading the dialogues between David Bohm and Krishnamurti and have been particularly intrigued by their interactions around time and thought. A key part of volution theory (www.volutiontheory.net) is that linear time as an experience and construct is an inadequate expression of how life works. The concept of evolution itself is part of that linear mindset, hence my proposal that volution – that integrates linear and cyclical in the spin-based toroidal image – is a more encompassing way to describe our individual and collective development.Continue reading
This is a deep dive into the volution philosophy, recorded originally as part of Integral European Conference 2020. Peter takes people on a journey through the emergence of volution, the core aspects of the theory and its implications for the world of today.
I have just completed a new online course aiming to give people an introduction to understanding and working with energetics in large-scale systems. You can either take it on your own self-paced (“Lite”) or together with others and myself with discussion and feedback (“Immersive”). Check it out!
