About women in academia

Question: The number of female professors at universities lags far behind the number of male professors, especially in the natural sciences. What can be done to improve the position of women in academia? 


Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at the 2020 Webinar for the Liberation of Women.

 

Well, as Mother Mary said, you can have a shift in academia away from this rational, linear mindset to valuing more intuitive holistic thinking. We have before talked about the fact that beginning with Aristotle, Western civilization was put into this focus on a reductionist approach to understanding the world. 

There is this tendency to break things into smaller and smaller units and study these units so that when we get down to the most basic unit, whether we call it a subatomic particle or something else, we will have the foundation for understand everything that happens in the universe. But as we have said several times, there is simply a limit to how far you can go with this approach. And science has already run up against this limit—if the male scientists were willing to acknowledge it. Of course, they are not because they’re stuck in a more linear, analytical mind. 

There needs to come this awareness that if we are to really move beyond our current limitations, we need to have a different approach a different way of thinking. And women are currently more open to this approach. They are generally more intuitive, which means they have a more holistic view. They are actually better at looking at the big picture rather than looking at the details. Not all women, but many women are. If there was this breakthrough, this recognition that science has reached a limit, that we cannot go beyond with our current approach, because if we keep doing the same thing and expect different results, we are insane (according to one of the most intelligent people of the world recognized by all male scientists). 

We need to look for a new approach. And there is a possibility that women could drive this approach. There’s already of course, both men and women who are developing different kinds of science such as systems theory and other sciences that attempts to look at the whole and that are realizing that even in the Chaos Theory, that a small effect in one place can have a major effect in another location, because everything is interconnected. When you recognize what quantum physics has proven, that everything is interconnected, how can you then continue to think that the reductionist approach of looking at smaller and smaller details can tell you anything about the interconnected whole of the entire universe? It is simply a matter of when will that shift happen? It will inevitably happen. If you’re concerned about it, you can certainly make the calls for it by using my decree or certain invocations. But it is clear that in the golden age, this will happen. It is just a matter of when.
