Brain Dead

The following is a paraphrased excerpt from a 2020 interview with Allan Savory, president and co-founder of the Savory Institute and the author of

  • Holistic Management, Third Edition: A Commonsense Revolution to Restore Our Environment
  • The Grazing Revolution: A Radical Plan to Save the Earth.

“What is science? People talk glibly about science, but what is science?


People come out of university with a masters degree or PhD and, when you take them into the field, they literally don’t believe anything unless there’s a peer-reviewed paper. That is the only thing they accept. And when you say to them: let’s observe, let’s think, let’s discuss, they don’t do it! They say: “Is it in a peer-review or not?” That is their view of science. I think that is pathetic! They go into universities as bright young people and come out of it brain dead, not even knowing what science means. They think it means peer-reviewed papers etc, no! That is academia.


If a paper is “peer-reviewed”, it means everybody thought the same, therefore they approved it. An unintended consequence [of peer-review] is that when new knowledge emerges, new scientific insights, they can never, ever, be peer-reviewed. So, we are blocking all new advances in science that are big advances. If you look at the breakthroughs in science, almost always they don’t come from the centre of that profession, they come from the fringe; [from] people who see it differently. The finest candlemakers in the world couldn’t even think of electric lights. [Breakthroughs] don’t come from within, they often come from the outside…


We going to kill ourselves because of stupidity.”

Allan Savory, 2020

New Life on the Fringe

We’re introducing a “Trojan Horse” into the Academy and creating a new profession that can freely research new, big advances in science. The New Human University® now offers accredited Master’s and PhD educations. On the horizon, a New Human is emerging, with new higher-brain physiology, new higher-mind functions, in a new culture and a new society that transcends, yet includes, all that came before.

In addition to the master’s and doctoral programs, The New Human University will maintain all other courses and certification programs. The New Human University offers, for example, a one-year course in the teachings and practices of PraxisAletheia: The Mystery School at the Leading Edge of Evolution. PraxisAletheia is a path of waking up, growing up, cleaning up, and showing up in the world with a new, evolutionary body, brain, and mind.

Watch this webinar to see if you are a good fit for PraxisAletheia. We are currently offering early enrollment into the class beginning February 6th, 2023.
