Anderson takes his past baggage for granted

Anderson, a Buddhist, believes in “an integral theory that is not predicated at all on structures of belief,” but he is perplexed as to how this can come about. The problem lies in the fact that he takes his past baggage for granted, sees nothing problematic about it. A new theory – and an ambitious one at that – must start anew with fresh ideas. Sri Aurobindo, in his The Life Divine, has supplied some very useful clues. And it is not difficult to erect an integral theory, at least one for oneself, in order to be at peace with oneself. [TNM]
