    • Abstract:
      In my view, because of the astounding growth and power of neoliberalism, time is rapidly running out before a "permanent" global caste system is in place. Peeking inside this future, we can see the elites and upper class living a life of unbounded luxury while the shrinking middle class is so frightened of joining the lower ranks, where drugs and violence permeate their lives, they will do whatever they are told to do, believe whatever they are told to believe, without the slightest hesitation. Since we are all "taught" to think, believe and behave as we do, this article attempts to articulate what I perceive as the deepest nature of curriculum theory that is not, as far as I know, found in the current scholarship; and for good reasons. Rudolph Otto (1923) in his acclaimed book: "The Idea of the Holy" argues persuasively that logic and reason alone are inadequate to answer our deepest questions. In addition, this article uses a variation of Albert Einstein's wisdom when he said: "we cannot solve our problems 'with the same thinking' that created them". Standing on these great minds, and after a brief discussion on current theory, this article uses a spiritual analysis to illuminate an entirely different epistemology that grounds a new curriculum theory; something, as we will see, society desperately needs.
