ZERO to ONE Promotional Download
America and the world is in a current state of chaos and panic, which raises many questions as to how it happened and why people are so afraid. The cognitive dissonance is glaringly obvious. On the one hand we claim to be a ‘religious’ or mindful nation and yet a challenge that should bring us together has only served to further separate us. We need to have different conversations, those that offer solace and understanding yet move us toward a greater unity.
The title of the book reflects the Karadshev scale many are familiar with today. Michio Kaku is an American theoretical physicist, futurist, and popularizer of science who recently spoke to an international gathering of Ufologists in Barcelona, Spain. He spoke, in part, to the kinds of things we might expect to observe in Type I through Type III civilizations. We are quite some distance from being able to use and store our planet’s energy, let alone a planetary civilization in harmony. We still manufacture energy and fight for resources to produce it. That really isn’t a very conscious planetary civilization, now is it?
Do we really want a sustainable living?
How do we shift our attention, our awareness?
What kind of conversations do we need to have to do so?
Would you agree that we need to have more open conversations about an expanded reality that makes sense common, assuages the fear of the unknown and engages the common man/woman effectively?
You, as a host, are a primary resource to get the conversation under way. A conversation with Zen will no doubt confirm and expand your thinking, too. He has a history of pushing the envelope and asking obvious questions. He hosted over 100 TV shows in the 1990s, called One World, exploring how we move through anger, fear and immobility to create community and healthy relationships.

John Spilsbury History of Puzzles. The origins of jigsaw puzzles go back to the 1760s when European mapmakers pasted maps onto wood and cut them into small pieces. John Spilsbury, an engraver and mapmaker, is credited with inventing the first jigsaw puzzle in 1767. The dissected map has been a successful educational toy ever since. Zen Benefiel Future of Puzzles. The dynamics and potentialities of positive outcomes defy logic. Logic even mathematicians and philosophers have long pondered. Something even Richard Feynman didn’t have enough time and still needed to examine, Quantum Love. What would it be like to meet the actual FUTURE puzzle makers themselves? This is what it is like to meet with Zen and his work. If you also have a piece that doesn’t seem to fit, you might just not be seeing the bigger picture. His books will help you unlock your true potential, regardless of the narrow views of those around you! Imagine what he can do in person.
Self-Published in 2019, ZERO to ONE – Making Our Way Toward a Conscious Civilization explores the ‘contact modalities’ across a spectrum of personal experiences and observational inquiries, opening readers to a new world living experience. The Kardashev scale of planetary evolution describes a TYPE I Civilization as one that is able to use the energy of the planet, perhaps even manage weather and resources to facilitate a state of harmony among people and planet. We have to change the way we think in order to do that. ZERO to ONE presents some of those ways to change our perception.
ZERO to ONE, Making Our Way Toward a Conscious Civilization is an exploration of these considerations and how the indicators or signs might be present enough for us to be more aware and able to participate. According to ancient wisdom, the prudent path appears to those who are intent on finding it. How do we get from where we are to a Type 1 civilization, able to use and harness the Earth’s energy effectively and efficiently through technological advances? Our innovation and intelligence increases as much in the process, too. Perhaps with the recent global gut check is an indication that the notion of rising in consciousness isn’t so far-fetched after all. Are we missing something simple that ties it together?
Expanding Our Awareness
Drs. Vernon Neppe and Edward Close state, in their Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm (TDVP) model, that consciousness, space and time are tethered across dimensions. If we consider the dynamics of the model, a potential Theory of Everything, how would awareness of consciousness on those dimensions resolve in a daily living reality? Would it make a difference? Are we capable of being more aware and connected to others and the world? How? ZERO to ONE explores potential answers.
Does the combination suggest a short list of possibilities for participating in life and the world? Does it take free will away or refine it with discernment and wisdom? Will knowing this have an effect on our activity in the future? Is your present shift in awareness going to impact the world around you? How do you know? Great questions to ask. When facing chaos and crisis, is there a path toward harmony and the effective management of human and material resources? ZERO to ONE offers some considerations.
If we consider the notion of creating our reality, which quantum physics indicates, does that eliminate determinism or is it complementary? How specific is the form, fit and function of or in our prudent path if there is one? How might an expanded view lead toward a better world?
Paradigm Shift – A kind of Trance End Dance
Keeping things light is helpful, though a shift in our thinking is imperative. Is there a way to change the way we think about our relationships with each other and our planet that takes us forward effectively and sustainably? It is called a ‘paradigm shift’ in psychology. Our world is changing rapidly, for better or worse, with opportunities to coagulate the possibilities into more solid sustainable systems that serve humanity. We have to learn to get along in the process, though, at least enough to share responsibility on a global level. We cannot engage others effectively until we know ourselves better, how we operate and the operating system that connects us all.
ZERO to ONE begins by addressing three questions:
- What is non-human intelligence?
- What is the relationship between consciousness, cosmology and contact with non-human intelligence?
- Is there a unification theory that demonstrates an interrelated whole? Beyond the math and science, how can we experience it?
Making our way toward a conscious civilization is tantamount to our survival, let alone exploring the our solar system and interacting with others. ZERO to ONE is a step toward acknowledging the internal systems and their true sensitivity and understanding of a larger reality. We need new tunes and to be better dance partners. Enjoy the journey and lead with vision!
A Little Background
Adoptees have a different view of life, often a deeper quest for connection. The ability to dig deep, ask the tough questions and be vulnerable imbues our conversations with authentic discovery. Compound that with a profound and unique near death experience as a teenager, leaving him with the understanding that we are individuated cosmic consciousness condensed into form and you have a formula for riding the razor’s edge of brilliance and world-changing views. Zen’s life has been a quest for connection and understanding of the nature of consciousness condensing into form beyond the religious and/or spiritual aspects of enlightenment and mindfulness.
Credentials and experience do matter. Dedicated to personal growth and understanding, staying grounded and demonstrably prepared for the practical, Zen earned a Master of Business Administration, Master of Arts in Organizational Management plus Certification as a Hypnotherapist, Life Coach as well as a Secondary and College Educator. He sought a path that would lead toward a greater service by learning how people, places and things work together better and understanding the learning styles inherent in human development. His capstone accomplishment, Stubbing My T.O.E. on Purpose, landed a series of interviews with world-renown thought-leader Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove.
Zen Benefiel, literally, takes us with him on his journey from drums to conundrums. His mind is facile as he weaves a narrative ranging from deep within the esoteric/ufology subculture to lessons of marriage, family, and business life. He draws upon archetypal psychology with a particular appreciation for the creative godhead archetype. If you read this book with an open heart, you may find yourself discovering new vistas of your own.
