"...from a shamanic perspective we could consider that there are larger processes that go beyond technical or economic ones, if you will, spiritual needs that pull the process of evolution forward rather than it being entirely pushed from behind.
In other words we could say that Spirit plays a hand in evolution by having an overall game-plan that it supports by leading from the so called future."

The monolith is almost the perfect icon of modern day shamanism.
A slice of the void from which all things emanate.
