Question: There are professional organizations that employ people with a very unique way of thinking. These people deal with computer technologies, or they may be artists, etc. Should we have special courses of integral education especially for such people?
Answer: I believe that this is necessary, since artists are very creative. Musicians, orchestra conductors, directors, painters, dancers, and so on, all have a unique perception of the world, of themselves, and of their place in the world. It is of course much harder to work with them than with other people, just as it is hard to work with businessmen and managers who also have a very unique perception of the world, seeing it through a very narrow and special prism.
I believe that we have to form groups according to the people’s inclination and their unique perception of the world.
