Quantum empathy: an alternative narrative for global transcendence

This paper proposes an alternative narrative for global transcendence that has spirituality at the core of shaping society. It draws on contemplative practices such as mindfulness, reflexivity and empathy that may contribute to closing the gap between self and other. From these practices, I argue that we have the ability to tap into the harmonic frequency of the universe (quantum empathy) that may bridge across, through and beyond boundaries to link our human experience. At this quantum level, empathy is an entangled, interconnected and indeterminate shared existence that may support the ethical shift in human consciousness. This view of spirituality as a macrolevel organizing mechanism does not present a tool-kit for organizational change, but rather offers a provocation of future system-level possibilities abducted from leading-edge science.
