It is clearly evident, after thousands of years of trial and disastrous errors, that the relief and release from our racially adolescent immaturity we seek as individuals and as a planetary species will not come from:
The purpose of this paper is to point out an overarching new
paradigm that redefines and, thereby, resolves and
most fundamental cause of the divisions and conflicts between us and
illuminates the now and future trajectory of the new planetary
We are blocked only by primitive, antique legacies and the
way to expunge them from the fabric of our cultures is now available
The least evolved among us, in
a perversion of the word “conservative”, preserve their wealth,
built on limited energy supply, by deliberately suppressing
developments that would make it limitless. As most current example,
if confined to this context of mammalian politics, we surely will
see, the “end of the west” --- the “wild”, Paleolithic, west at
least --- and the rise of the European Union in its turn in the
dreary cycles of competitive mammalian economics. Then the “rise” of
China, perhaps, etc., etc..
Domestically we are
a dead poet’s society paralyzed and waiting perennially for the
futant we have probably already terminated at the stake, in the
courtroom, the boardroom, the lab, the dean’s office, the classroom
for violating a taboo....
Among some humans, there is a slinking
cynicism, an often unspoken, viral attitude in human society that
holds the view that it is impossible to get out of the criteria
vacuum, to initialize a common ground; impossible to get past the
communicatory barriers of turf and custom, belief and taboo. When
talking about the human we are largely ineffectual because we are Babel-factored, literally talking at each other about a different
How primitively adolescent are we?
Most fundamentally and amazingly,
we do not have a consensual, planetary, generic definition of what a
human being is. We disagree about how we really came into existence,
and what the nature of our developmental process is. We disagree as
to the facts and interpretation and understanding of our species’
history. We have treated the sociobiological event of our beginning
as a species as if we could never be sure if it ever really
occurred. We have not resolved nor integrated our genesis and our
history as a species and, therefore, are at a loss to understood our
real nature and future trajectory. That we do not see this as a
profound puzzle is further proof of our species primitive naiveté.
We teach our own children, privately, generally the same platitudes and clichés we were taught and brand them with the same religious, scientific, and intellectual taboos we were tattooed with as children and expect that they will somehow be ready to do better than we and perhaps even step into stellar society.
Whether we deny it our not, our children show all
the signs of being ready; they are underwhelmed and
We feel it. Nevertheless, we do not teach our minors philosophy
although they are capable of calculus. We do not allow a teacher in
the public school system to teach our children anything important
about anything important because we do not agree about what to teach
them, because we do not agree about who and what we are. We do not
educate our children in the management and refinement and evolution
of their personal spectrums of consciousness because we do not agree
on what that spectrum includes. And the children are literally our
future, we in the future.
We are too close to them, or think that they
do not influence us, or that they have been dealt with in the
scientific or academic world long ago, or that we can just ignore
them. We deal, furthermore, with all these problems in a
Paleolithic, turfish manner from the isolated towers of
The I Ching and the Book of the Tao are instruction manuals in which the “owner” is understood as the human consulting them. In the case of the Bible and the Koran the “owners” are not the humans but the deities associated with the manuals. This relationship of “owner” to subject, deity to servant or slave, is understood by the vast majority as “religion”. We hardly question this concept.
Those who do question it have often been killed by those who do not. Those of one slave-code religion have often killed those of another slave-code religion over whose owner is the only real Owner or which code is the correct one.
slave-code definitions determine our cultures and their legacies and
traditions and are the most basic cause of the separations,
divisions, conflicts and wars between humans.
If these negatives were all there were, then the fears of those in future shock would be vindicated. If I had no suggestions, solutions, answers or resolutions to offer I would not have written this paper. So the second half of this paper respectfully offers an overview and paradigm that can take us, in the perspective of a deepened knowledge of our species and ourselves, to a new level of racial maturity and a degree of freedom previously unavailable.
The new synthesis subsumes partial glimpses of a new politic, humanistic new world order, enlightened eco-economics, re-hashed Eastern or Western mysticism, a third culture, spiritualized psychology, all knowledge united in a grand consilience, or cerebral turning points.
We now have the keys to integrate our past with our present and future in the concept of generic humanity, the critical factor for achieving planetary unity.
