Anthony Gucciardi is a self-made entrepreneur and seeker of knowledge whose thoughts and writings have been featured in Best-Selling USA Today & Wall Street Journal books and NASDAQ leadership classes, with nearly 1 million subscribers across his platforms.
Anthony utilizes his reach to share and speak on the works and concepts of thought leaders and proto-disruptors who invite us to examine our perceptions such as Ken Wilber, Carl Jung, Robert Moore, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Manly P. Hall, and many others.
Anthony invites us on his epistemological quest to explore the very nature of our understandings and how they affect our experience of reality.
How Anthony Thinks – 3 Primary Ideological Positions
– The majority of our perceptions are not consciously chosen based on reasonable deduction and reflection, but influenced or wholly generated by external factors or other people throughout our lives. When we fail to consciously explore our perceptions for their actual value, we are operating programmatically and without true intellectual independence. Therefore, it is primarily essential to examine the roots of our perceptions through expanding our intellectual possibilities.
– While our modern outlook has generated innumerable benefit, we have lost touch with the knowledge and practices of our ancestors. As a result, we are consciously and unconsciously longing for meaning and searching for non-mundane experiences that we often cannot find in daily contemporary life. Conscious rituals and spiritual practices have been disregarded as useless relics of the past by an ‘objective’ culture that has fractured itself as a result. Through re-integration of these practices and an awareness of the ancient wisdom society has lost, we can reap the benefits of psychological and spiritual wholeness.
– Just as a truly scientific hypothesis cannot be correct unless it can be proven incorrect, we should endeavor to inculcate new ideas and ways of thinking into our psychological dynamic – even if we do not agree with them. By engaging with or reading from those who we disagree with, we are able to not only create new methods of unified diplomacy and communication, but we temporarily escape the rigidity of our belief systems.
