Our emerging global consciousness will be discussed here from the Unified-Physics point of view. In the previous categories I have offered the physical base for a scientific consideration of our global consciousness. It is probably the most important open scientific and humanistic problem for us to learn in the next years. It would be wonderfully to can read here some ideas by the wise members of our global civilization. If you read this page and you have some ideas for all of us, please attend the discussion. Or if you know someone, who could give us an instructive comment, please let him know the address of this blog-page.

As the first example of our global-consciousness activities please read “The Quest for a Quantum Leap in Human Affairs” by Ervin Laszlo:
World Shift Der Wandel der Welt Przemiana świata

One other useful possibility how you could participate in the development of our global consciousness is the following action: State of Global Emergency Declaration - ENDORSE NOW!


The next possibility is to read the lecture by Jakob von Uexküll “The World Future Council: Building Europe’s Global Vision”. Though the text is already some older one, I mean every free thinking human being should read such texts every few years in order to understand the sense of one`s own existence here in this global world. (for more information to the activities of The World Future Council see here).

    From the Giordano-Bruno-GlobalShift-University-
    Program:

    If humankind is to survive and thrive in the 21st century, the cycle of a faulty consciousness reinforcing unsustainable structures needs to be changed. Breaking through this cycle calls for the evolution of the consciousness that dominates the contemporary world.

    A better awareness is needed of our global situation and the possibilities for improving it. We must achieve a peaceful organic “(r)evolution”. This means evolving the thinking and values, the consciousness of today`s young people, the architects of tomorrow`s world. This is the basic objective of the courses offered by the Giordano Bruno GlobalShift University, which will start full-fledged operations in January 2012.

    Understanding the rise of human consciousness through the ages and epochs of history constitutes the essential basis for a biological and epistemological assessment of our present situation and our prospects for a brighter future. This understanding helps us to overcome our separation from nature and to transform our hierarchical, subordination-based forms of social, political, and economic organization. It is to empower the young generation to co-create a more equitable, just, and sustainable world on this planet.

    What can we do together to realize the global shift in consciousness?
    My personal answer is following:
    to develop the Unified Physics towards the physics of the conscious Universe.

    On July 26, 2008 the Chopra Foundation, the Source of Synergy Foundation and the Association for Global New Thought invited a group of renowned Evolutionary Leaders to the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California, to explore their extraordinary potential as a collective. Out of this gathering came A Call to Conscious Evolution: Our Moment of Choice.
    In the section “THE CHALLENGE” of this call we read:
    “At this juncture in human history, urgent global crises challenge us to learn to live sustainably, in harmony and gratitude with one another and with the living universe. The changes required of humanity are broad, deep, and far reaching. Only by acting swiftly and creatively can we birth a planetary culture that will bring well-being to every form of life in the Earth community.
    The good news is that a compelling new story of our potential as a whole human species is emerging–a story of collaboration, citizen action, dialogue and new understandings propelled by unprecedented levels of democratic freedom, multicultural exchange, and access to communication technologies. It is nothing less than the story of our collective evolution.”

    The Evolutionary Leaders have given us their inspiring messages. I am going to present only few of them here, but all of them are worthy to be read carefully.
    There are clear pragmatical voices among them:
    (Duane Elgin) “As we humans learn to live in a living universe, awakening our capacity for collective consciousness is our most critical and creative challenge.”
    (Ashok Gangadean) “We have arrived at our moment of choice.”
    (Fred Matser) “The chaos in the environment is a reflection of the disorder in our minds and hearts (invironment).”
    (Lynne McTaggart) “For hundreds of years we have acted against nature by defining ourselves as separate from our world. What is now called for, in the midst of the continuing crises in our current way of life, are measures far more radical than individual instances of economic, political or ecological reform. We now require nothing less than a revolution in our thinking, in our entire paradigm.”

    But there are also pretty optimistic voices among them:

    (Kathy Hearn) “As difficult as things are, in many ways these are the best of times. We are called to surrender and to be carried over the falls of evolution into the oneness, holiness, solutions and love that wait for us far beyond what we know.”
    (Lynnaea Lumbard) “Knowing we co-create our own evolution calls us into the greatness of our beauty, wisdom, compassion, skill, grace and courage to live into a new story of what humanity can be.”

    However, the messages that have mostly inspired myself to give my personal answer to the above question here were these two following messages:
    (Jean Houston) “There is a radical need for a new natural philosophy based on our new knowledge of the cosmos, the world, the cross-cultural mix of knowledge and understanding, potential evolutionary directions, and our own emerging realities.”
    (Nina Meyerhof) “People of the world who hear the Call to Consciousness acknowledge that we are called upon to move from limited thinking to the emerging awareness of our inherent unity. Yet it is our future generations who will BE and live this. May we help be their WAY and support their future of evolutionary leadership in this revolution of social consciousness.”

    Dear Professor Laszlo,

    here is my remark to the last part of your April-Interview by worldshiftmovement (in Toscany).
    You are answering to the last question you have put by yourself: “Am I really going in the right way when I think that all of the cosmos is moving in a direction of higher consciousness? Is there something deeper underlining all of this reality? … I think that consciousness is the primary reality.”

    I feel I am able to give you the answer you are looking for. Today I am really convinced (what means: as far scientifically sure as possible without neglecting the fundamental scientific rule that every good theory is falsifiable) that our every thought, our every idea (an extension of a simple thought) will be directly written down (recorded) in the universal quantum field of energy (the Field of Light), exactly during we are thinking it.

    But let me begin a little bit back in the Unified Physics. In that physics I do not describe some more or less dubious beginning of the whole Universe. I am beginning with a primordial cosmic cloud of cosmic nanoparticles (cosmic dust) being the original material for our Solar-System formation. Such a cosmic dust is always the first direct product of the universal field of energy, the original level of all inanimete and animated matter in the observable part of our Universe. What is beyond, I don`t care, because I have no scientifically verifiable idea, how I could know something behind my limit of observation.

    One of the main assumption of the Unified Physics about our observable Universe says that the matter coming into existence from the Filed of Light is always quantized. We could freely think from the very beginning about the appearing quanta of matter as being just nothing but quantized energy. It is our ultimate way of thinking about the Nature indeed. However, it would be difficult for us to understand the whole diversity of the natural processes and phenomena by using the only objects, the quanta of energy. Therefore, we introduce (just for our psychical convenience) the artificial auxiliary ideas of different classes of the energy quanta and of the different properties of these quanta, like different physical quantities: size, time, speed , force, mass, electric charge, magnetic field, and many others.

    All of these auxiliary physical properties have been shown in the Unified Physics to be reducible onto just one property; we can arbitrarily choose that one we wish, for example, the size of a quantum of matter, or just its energy. The order of all physical quantities allowing such a reduction (unification) is called the Unified Family of all physical quantities.

    Another new (auxiliary) idea of the Unified Physics is the Quantum Spectrum of Matter. The central level of this spectrum is the level of the Field of Light. Above it there are collected all possible states of larger quanta of matter, which can be together ordered as belonging to the first class of the simplest living cells (like viruses, bacteria, the simple biological cells of more complex organisms). The second class collects all still larger quanta of the animated matter we would call the nerve cells. The third class above them in the spectrum is the class of the largest brain cells, a separate class of quanta of matter (being not just an assemblage, a community of nerve cells). The highest, still not realized by our evolution a class of the superbrain cells is maybe already partly realized in some human heads or in some conditions even today.

    Underneath the Field of Light in the Quantum Spectrum of Matter we have positioned all possible smaller quanta of the inanimate matter. The nearest to the Field of Light are the quanta of the molecular matter, below them are the smaller atomic quanta of matter, and still below are the smallest quanta of the atomic nuclei. At the lowest in the spectrum is the theoretical place for quarks, which have been also not finally “developed” (like the superbrain cells) in a free state until today.

    What I need for my answer to your question is the average, the universal level of this spectrum of matter. Physically we can think about this primordial level of all matter as about an immense energetic (two-dimensional) membrane spread over the observable Universe. This field cannot be “quiet”. There are always spontaneous, quantized fluctuations in it. The membrane can roll itself into a smaller quanta of the inanimate matter, with the energy density higher than the universal density of the Field of Light. There could also spontaneously appear a fluctuation with some lower energy density. This region of the membrane could roll itself into a new, the most primitive quantum of the animated matter. The closed universal membrane wraps in that case a part of the space with a lower energy density than in its “environment”. Therefore this new quantum possesses the theoretical potential to “consume” energy from outside. It can eat, it can live. Whether it will do so or no, depends on the particular situation, in which the quantum has been born.

    Such a simple quantum of the living matter leaves no other print in the Field of Light as a micrometer-sized fluctuation in this field of energy. However, if the evolution would be “allowed” (energetically supported) and the quantum could evolve (after millions of generations) into a fertilized women egg cell (ovum), than a human being could come to existence. All his quanta of matter leave their own tracks in the universal quantum field. And the human being begins to think, to use (energetically) his quanta of the brain matter belonging to the highest level of the matter complexity. The energetic tracks of these quanta, the “brain prints” are not just singular fluctuations (placed in the Filed of Light like raisins in a plum-cake). This time the quanta of matter are printing the “quasi-continuous” (because still quantized) lines of the energetic record in the Field of Light. It is because a thought is a (quantized) process of “consuming” energy. The singular prints are connected to each other, forming a chain of prints, a quantum of information, which we could compare with a record on a long-playing plate in a phonograph or with an optical record in a CD.

    Our heads are just the recording or reading heads of the natural energetic “phonographs”. All our thoughts are always written directly into the immense natural “eternally playing” plate of the Field of Light. The Field of Light is the universal state of the whole energy of our Universe. No part of its energy could be ever transferred elsewhere. There is no “elsewhere” behind the Field of Light. Therefore each our thought, also these connected with the present comment, will remain recorded for ever in this field.

    Repeating the recording procedure (by learning, for example) we make the records stronger, easier to find if we need them (for exam or concert). Furthermore, our head has a specific individual mark added to each quantum of information recorded in the Field of Light (like the e-mail signature). Thus we read mainly our own records from the Field of Light. However it is possible (after an accident with head injury, or during the childbirth, first of all the forceps delivery) that we shortly or longer change our specific reading frequency, our brain signature, and are able to read records of someone else. And finally, if we are living in a couple with other person for a long time, we are recording our energetic prints in the Field of Light increasingly in a similar manner, on a similar “wavelength”. We are gradually better and better in “reading” the other person`s thoughts.

    And finally directly to your question.

    “Am I really going in the right way when I think that all of the cosmos is moving in a direction of higher consciousness?”
    I would say that probably not all the cosmos, but maybe all the observable Universe (the Cosmic Hierarchy of the Solar System), and surely all the Solar System is going in that direction indeed. We are consuming the energy from the neighboring cosmic space (which we need for our thoughts, ideas, theories, feelings and impressions) and in this sense, our cosmic home is really going towards the next evolutionary step of the living creatures equipped with superbrains capable to develop higher and higher levels of consciousness.

    “Is there something deeper underlining all of this reality?”
    If you mean depper than the reality of the traditional science, then surely yes. I have just tried to explain it on some deeper level. I hope my thoughts were clear enough here so you would like them.

    “I think that consciousness is the primary reality.”
    In that point I am afraid I cannot say yes. Our human (individual or global) consciousness is physically describable (in the Unified Physics), therefore it is natural and cannot be primary to Nature. However, your question remains unanswered if we put it that way:
    “Why is the Nature so beatifully simple that we can understand so much of it?”
