HOLISTIC REVOLUTION

THE INTEGRATION OF HUMAN THINKING THROUGH A SINGLE FRAMEWORK

This project proposes an integral design interconnecting major dimensions of human experience and thinking into a single framework.

The design suggests that areas of human thinking can be divided into levels or sectors that in the world today are not commonly interconnected, but in an "integral world" -- and with the right design -- they can and should be.

It proposes a kind of container for all levels of human thinking, and then suggests that all levels of thinking can be smoothly interconnected within this container.

This theme is profoundly revolutionary, in that it suggests a major shift or change in human thinking -- from fragmented and separated to whole and integrated.

All facets of human thinking are affected by this shift, including the relationship of politics and religion, or the relationship of science and religion. All of these factors affect desirable forms of governance.

In simple terms, this model proposes that all facets of reality and human understanding exist within a common framework that we might call "oneness" or "the one" -- and which some other people might call "God". This underlying "oneness" or "one" has been divided by human thinking throughout history into separate and often contending/competing categories.

We are sketching out this vision. These bullet-points list many of the factors that are contributing to this shift.

A VAST SHIFT

  • We are experiencing a vast shift in national and global culture.
  • Its basic dimension is "globalization", which is creating a huge international "melting pot" of ideas and cultural identity. This process is currently very chaotic beause it is not well-understood, and is impacting people everywhere sometimes in very surprising or threatening ways.
  • This is a huge creative experience for people everywhere who are being compelled to adapt to these changes, and may be threatened by them.
  • This proess is "very big" - almost inconceivable - very difficult or impossible to discuss accurately in full detail.
  • Information overload and complexity are a huge challenge.
  • Very revolutionary
  • The shift from fragmentation to wholeness
  • Resonance -- finding each other by trust, careful deep listening
  • There is a movement in the world reaching for this change -- but because it is vast and extremely complex and and transformational, it is not yet really possible to see or understand it all
  • Integral writers like Ken Wilber have explored and popularized this theme
  • Many mystics and new-age thinkers have seen ideas like this

CONNECTING THE ENTIRE WORLD THROUGH A SINGLE WHOLE

A SCIENTIFIC AND PHILOSOPHICAL REVOLUTION

  • A new model of concepts and the basic framework of science and philosophy
  • Bottomlessly complex because it carries implications for "everything"

FRAGMENTATION

American society and the world is profoundly affected today by psychological forces that make it difficult or impossible for different groups to work together.
  • Polarization
  • Complexity
    • Too many details, moving too fast
    • Too many points of possible division
  • Overload
  • Cultural identity - thinking in terms of groups rather than individuals
  • Intuition versus science
  • "Duality"

THE RETURN TO INTEGRAL

  • Must take a leap of intuition and faith
  • The details are too complex for detailed discussion in a short time-frame
  • Explore the vision: is it sound, can this really be correct?

SCOPE

  • Vast breadth of inclusion
  • Very basic big-picture simple outline
  • Highly interdisciplinary
  • Very controversial -- because any holistic idea can become controversial
  • Very complex and ambitious -- must be grown and deveoped carefully

THE ONTOLOGICAL REVOLUTION

  • Closed loop interval ontology
