- (a) explaining that it was Sri Aurobindo hismelf who first coined and defined "Integral" in a spiritual evolutionary context
- (b) reclaiming Sri Aurobindo's actual teachings from mainstream Integralist misinterpretations;
- (c) illustrating the limitations of Wilber's purely mental-intellectual approach (lacking esotericism and gnosis) in explaining the "big questions";
- (d) showing how the Integral Movement is much larger than just Wilberian ideas or the Integral Institute alone; and
- (e) contributing to broader definitions of Integralism.
Now, having done all that, and also defined my own position, and hopefully not made too much of a fool of myself in doing so :-) I feel much more enthusiastic about emphasising similarities and working together in cooperation, in bringing about the new world; through dialogue and unity in diversity (and diversity in unity). Especially since I find myself identifying equally strongly with both the Integral Yoga community and the Larger Integral Movement.
