The evolution of consciousness and culture

The evolution of consciousness and culture is a classic principle in spiritual societies throughout time where this knowledge of an evolving universe has been at the very least intuited. We have understood that in order for the world to change consciousness has to evolve, and since consciousness and culture are inter-related, so too does culture have to evolve through our own vehicles. I wonder how much consciousness there is of this movement in consciousness toward the new in this TED community. My guess is that there is quite a lot of consciousness around this topic. But i also feel that unless we begin to embody this new consciousness as ourselves in everything that we do, so that this consciousness can begin to transform the world around us, we will be falling short of the radical potential to create a new culture of higher values together.
