HUMA 201(A) Study Guide for Quiz # 5 Age of Aquarius –  A new age will develop. This will be a utopia in which there is world government, and end to  wars, disease, hunger, pollution, and poverty. Gender, racial, religious, and other forms of  discrimination will cease. People’s allegiance to their tribe or nation will be replaced by a concern for  the entire world and its people.    Astrology –  The belief that the orientation of the planets at the time of one’s birth and the location of that  birth predicts the individual’s future and personality. Belief in astrology is common amongst New Agers  but is not limited to them. Aura –  believed to be an energy field radiated by the body. Invisible to most people, it can be detected by  some as a shimmering, multi-colored field surrounding the body. Those skilled in detecting and  interpreting auras can diagnose an individual’s state of mind, and their spiritual and physical  health. Calculability -  an emphasis on the quantitative aspects of products sold (portion size, cost) and service offered (the time  it takes to get the product).  (McDonaldization) Channeling –  Making contact with the dead. It is trying to make contact with a single spiritually evolved being.
