Rod candidly shares his views on the trials of Auroville's impersonal objectives and the difficulties of the rationalistic goals it has adopted, which concern urban planning, finance and entry. He further touches on paranoia, the importance of image, and the varying interpretations of the Mothers words, leadership with a higher resonance and the occult importance of the world's collaboration in Auroville as a means to hasten the new consciousness. Rod has been working and contributing in the field of education for many years.
