The Creation of the Aura
On January 1, 2012, the Aura was introduced to Auroville. The Aura, not quite a currency, but more of a symbol of exchange, was created to expand Aurovillian's ideas of ways to deal with money. I took some time to speak with B about the emergence of a symbol of exchange that is a wholly Aurovillian concept, and the question of how money is handled in Auroville. The Aura is made out of waste paper, printed at the Auroville press, and embellished with the well-known symbols of Auroville.

It was over-packed at the Visitors' Center on Saturday evening, in anticipation of a new production of 'Genius Incorporated Presents' causing laughs way before the show began. As previously announced, the 'Doppelganger' is a scientific fiction of future possibilities, with the advent of dual consciousness; each of us might have expected various options for the play we were all anxious to see. The Genius team didn't let the public down – this humorous piece was insightfully critical as usual, with some new approaches and excellent video clips.  And of course, with an original story of three beings (which highly resembled three known friends in Auroville) coming for a visit, and a possible encounter with a new conscious human being, a superhuman.

New Economy?
One of the most interesting presentation at Mutation II A Clearing was Ravi Chaudry "Quest For Exceptional Leadership", in which he gave some guidelines on what new economy should be based. With it we also see how excellence and leadership contribute to transformation and mutation. New economy it is complex, but not completed, and the future of the Earth depend on the change of consciousness. The enterprise of the future is the one that is getting inspirations from above but in such a manner, that the light from above penetrate all the levels of an enterprise... Business itself become and instrument of transformation. Prof. Ravi Chaudry just released a book "Quest For Excellence in Leadership", which is written in a language appropriate for the audience that should hear it, without loosing any of the essence of it. He himself is a successful adviser and consultant to many corporations and governments on many levels.Click here to download the pdf of the presentation. Read more
