San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2003
Internet Visionary Brent Hunter is proposing innovative ways to significantly reduce the problem of terrorism worldwide. Hunter is the author of the highly praised The Rainbow Bridge Â a book that illuminates the common ground in the worldÂs major religions. Hunter, raised by a Jewish father, a Muslim mother, and raised in the Christian faith, brings a unique perspective to todayÂs major issues. The influence of this book has been so great that it is currently being translated into 33 languages by a team of volunteers located around the world.
Hunter began this type of inquiry by creating the first and largest all-inclusive international online community. Established in 1994, The Park reached 700,000+ members worldwide facilitating a global network of conversations and substantive dialogues on issues of great importance. Given HunterÂs proven gifts for community building, communication, and understanding of world religions, Hunter has created The Rainbow Bridge project, a series of books that tackle the issues behind terrorism and facilitate the creation of a global culture of peace in practical ways.
The impetus behind The Rainbow Bridge is HunterÂs assertion that the root cause of terrorism stems from the lack of adequate conversation and dialogue about the issues that plague humanity at this critical and yet exciting time in history. Combining universal principles found in all of the worldÂs religions with state-of-the-art information and communication technologies, the problem of terrorism and war can be significantly reduced. Elisabet Sahtouris, Ph.D., evolutionary biologist and author, describes The Rainbow Bridge as ÂÂ a roadmap to the conscious evolution of humanity. A book to carry, consult often, and give away to all those you care about.Â
Since the Internet has brought about an unprecedented ability to share information and to communicate with one another across the world, Hunter believes that our thinking processes will also undergo a similar unprecedented transformation. Such an evolutionary leap forward in our consciousness, in conjunction with advanced technologies, will finally allow us to use sound logic and reasoning to resolve our complex global problems. ÂWithout adequate dialogue and negotiation about root causes, terrorism and violence will get worse, not better. We must all live by the rule of law, not by the rule of force Â especially given the giant game of Monopoly that is being played in the world today,Â states Hunter.
HunterÂs remarkably simple premise is that no matter what the worldÂs issues are, the main problem is that adequate dialogue and negotiation based on facts, with the right people, has simply not taken place; if it had, he asserts, the problems would have been solved by now. By building on and networking the outstanding work of governments, Non-Governmental Organizations, and non-profit organizations all over the world, Hunter has created the structure for implementing a vast network of conversations and dialogues worldwide, both online and in the real world. ÂIt really is true that if the people lead, the leaders will follow,Â Hunter states, sharing his desire to empower people around the world to take part in our own conscious evolution.
Due to the overwhelming success of The Rainbow Bridge, Hunter is now working on the next two books in The Rainbow Bridge series, The Rainbow Bridge in Terrorism and The Rainbow Bridge in Business, which he believes have the potential to alter the course of humanityÂs future. ÂIt is our destiny to live in peace and harmony, and it is up to us to make it happen,Â Hunter enthusiastically declares.
Brent Hunter, a former psychotherapist, started The Park, an online community in the early days of the Internet and kept it running out of the proverbial garage for 6.5 years. By combining his skills in business, information and communication technologies, psychology and understanding of universal spiritual principles, he attracted 160 volunteers who helped create, maintain and grow this international online community which received an astonishing six million hits per day. Hunter is also involved with a great number of global civic organizations. HunterÂs ability to create networks of conversations and dialogues online and in the real-world is a rare talent and one which the world may be ready for.
To order The Rainbow Bridge worldwide, contact Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Bookpeople, Inc., Barnes & Noble or Amazon.com. An interactive web site, board game, audio cassettes, CDs, calendars, cards and more are also in the works.
