About Dr. Marcus T. Anthony, futurist
Web site: www.mindfutures.com
“There is more to the future than flying cars and a faster internet. At the heart of the future lies the soul of humanity.” So writes Dr. Marcus T. Anthony. The sentence encapsulates the thinking of one of the few genuine futurists in the East Asia region. Futurists are people who study, analyse and deeply question the future. However, Australian-born Dr. Anthony is rather unusual in the Futures Studies field. While most futurists focus upon economics and technological innovation, the Hong Kong based writer and philosopher extends his thinking to far more profound realms.
Beginning from the mid 1990s, Dr. Anthony began to explore visionary worlds through contemplation, deep meditation, and emotional healing. He traveled to many parts of the world, seeking the wisdom and guidance of gifted spiritual teachers. While living in New Zealand from 1996-1999, he engaged in an intensive programme of spiritual exploration with a group of committed spiritual seekers. By the time he had left New Zealand for Taiwan, he had developed an ability to perceive and understand human consciousness at an extraordinarily deep level. This included the capacity to sense the thoughts and emotional energies of others, and to communicate with spiritual realms. Subsequently, he set about formally studying the frontiers of human intelligence, enrolling in a doctoral programme at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. During his doctoral candidature, he applied his natural intuitive gifts to develop a unique method of study, Integrated Inquiry (described in The Professor’s Other Brain, Benjamin Franklin Press, late 2010). Integrated inquiry combines traditional research tools with intuitive ways of knowing to locate, analyse and communicate knowledge.
In recent years Dr. Anthony has become a prolific writer. He has published the academic book Integrated Intelligence (Sense Publishers, 2008), the more layman-friendly Sage of Synchronicity (Inner Traditions, 2011), scores of academic articles, and numerous internet features.
Dr. Anthony is the Director of Benjamin Franklin Press Asia, a publishing company specialising in books and media related to Futures Studies. Its mission is to introduce to Asia the significant works of leading futurists. In particular, the focus is to bring greater balance to discussions, analyses and visions of the future; broadening financial and technologically-dominated discourses with a consideration for deeper philosophical, psychological, and spiritual perspectives.
Dr. Anthony is an elected member of the World Futures Studies Federation, and the Darwin Project Council - a think-tank comprising many leading futurists, academics, philosophers and scientists, including triune brain theorist Paul Maclean, psychologist Mihalyi Czikszentmihalyi, systems theorist Ervin Laszlo, and feminist Rianne Eisler.
Dr. Anthony has lived and worked in East Asia for a decade. This includes Taiwan, mainland China (Beijing and Sichuan), and five years in Hong Kong. He is a proficient speaker of Mandarin Chinese, and can amuse Hong Kongers with his essential Cantonese. He now lives in Hong Kong.
