The LP is a response to Maslow's call for "mass techniques" of helping. Noting that most people can't avail themselves of expensive psychoanalysis, Abraham Maslow suggested that "...we must turn our attention more and more to mass techniques of helping the person to discover this precious human nature deep within himself-this, nature that he is afraid of expressing." The Lightning Path is designed to be such a "mass technique."
The LP is also a response to the call for "technology" to facilitate a "Consciousness Revolution" as Lazlo, Grof, Russell (1999) call it, has been a long-standing concern of philosophers, scientists, gurus, prophets, and saviours alike, for at least ten thousand years, probably more.
Side note: Folks usually get interested after some kind of Connection Event leads to some Connection Outcome that causes them to question their "position" on things, sometime to the point of defining, altering, or transforming one's perspectives and even life's work. For example, Synchronicity, Active Imagination, and Dream Events all played a role in pushing C. G. Jung towards an examination of "occultism" and the spiritual side of life
