The Basic Purpose of Life for the Individual and Humanity --- When Seen From the Perspective of the Universe's Evolution at Whole System Cosmic Scale

Lawrence's picture
Submitted by Lawrence on

Knowing your purpose in life is fundamentally essential to ordering your life with meaning and being happy and successful.  To objectively understand your own basic life purpose as well as humanity's basic purpose it is logical and necessary to understand the pre-existing and larger evolutionary purposes of evolving life within the Cosmos (the universe.)

This is because the evolution of your life and the evolution of humanity is completely embedded within the pre-existing purposes and directionality of the universe's evolution. Knowing the pre-existing purposes for the evolution of life in the universe is also important because these purposes have been time-tested and have proven themselves to be optimally successful for sustaining and thriving life in all its forms over billions of years of universe evolution and conditions.

Based upon this science-grounded premise, the most logical, objective and basic life purposes for the individual and humanity are to:

a.) "first align one's own goals, purposes and actions to the pre-existing directionality of the universe's over-controlling progressive evolution of life, and then

b.) becoming an active partner with evolution in intentionally forwarding the progressive evolution of life and humanity and, humanity's generational children both here on Earth and eventually out into the stars."

Within the above two core meta-purposes are contained all of the worthwhile, meaningful and life-affirming purposes from every important area of life such as politics, economics, society, religion etc. These greater evolutionary purposes for life does not negate your personal goals and passions for happiness and the comforts of life.

Evolution's purposes above only ask you to elevate those self-chosen goals and passions by aligning them with the pre-existing and dominant progressive evolution directionality of life as a whole. This action will then insure that you will be more effective and sustainably over a longer period of time. (You will understand this better and why it is true after reading about what progressive evolution means.)

The core life purposes statement above is an optimal statement of basic life purpose because:

a.) we are completely embedded within and carried along by the far larger and vastly more powerful forces of the massive physical universe and the universe's evolutionary processes. The evolutionary processes of the universe ultimately control the directional flow of our own evolution as well as our species' evolution. 

b.) all of the "best success practices" of politics, economics, society, religion etc. ultimately came from, are contained within, and/or are controlled directly or indirectly by the core action patterns, intrinsic values and directionality of the universe's progressive evolutionary processes.

If we do not understand, align with and contribute to the meta-dominant flow of the universe's over-controlling evolutionary processes and directionality, how can we ever expect our lives to go well, be sustainable or, be free from unnecessary or avoidable pain and suffering? If we do not align with the pre-existing flow of the progressive evolution of the universe, we will be forever swimming upstream and against a ever-dominant and eventually overwhelming evolutionary current that sooner or later will always wear us down and stop us from continuing in our self-chosen but non-evolutionarily aligned purposes, goals and directions.

The new evolutionary life purpose statement for both individual and humanity's success flies in the face of decades of "expert" individual life purpose-finding advice that one must "first find their own highest purposes and goals and then achieve these personal self-chosen purposes and goals as your life's first priority!" Yes, there certainly is a relevant and important place for pursuing one's self-related purposes and goals, but only after you have first understood the meta-dominant directionality of the universe's evolutionary processes and then only after you have wiselt aligned your personal purposes and goals with them. This is done simply by placing your self-chosen personal purposes and goals appropriately within the far greater controlling context, directionality and importance of the universe's pre-existing and unstoppable evolutionary directionality and then aligning your purposes and goals with that directionality.

After reading more about the core directionality, actions and value interests of progressive evolution take some time to think deeply about the basic life purpose stated above and then ask yourself if your current self-chosen life goals and purposes align with the meta life purposes above. If they don't, you have a unique opportunity to realign your existing life goals and purposes with the above meta purposes and in the bargain, greatly enhance the ease and success of your attaining your existing self-chosen purposes and goals!  

Most importantly, if you do see the wisdom of aligning your life with the unstoppable power flow of the progressive evolution of the universe then make the following commitment right now. If you do you will begin to experience almost immediately a new wonder, beauty, adventure and vastly improved and sustainable --- evolutionary fitness, adaptability, cooperativeness and an improved control of your environment.

Before you make the Evolutioneer's commitment (below,) really take the time to learn about why making this meta-committment is truly a valid and wise decision. Think deeply about it before you make it.

This is a decision and commitment that will with your appropriate commitment-filling actions, set you on an adventure and journey that you will never regret. Do not make the commitment below before you are ready. It is too important to your and our futures!

"If you really want to evolve your life and the world for the better, evolve your decisions and commitments! Then the  necessary actions that you need to take will become much easier. " Lawrence Wollersheim

The Evolutioneer's commitment:

a.) I commit myself to aligning (or re-aligning,) my own goals, purposes and actions to the pre-existing directionality of the universe's over-controlling progressive evolution of life. And,

b.) I commit myself to be an active partner with evolution in intentionally forwarding the progressive evolution of life and humanity and, humanity's generational children both here on Earth and eventually out into the stars.

(When you do make this commitment email us at manage@universespirit.org so we can add your name to the Evolutioneer honor roll.)

"The evolutionary process itself now appears to have reached the unique developmental state where it "wants to" intentionally and awarely influence its own evolution. And humanity appears to be evolution's current most favored medium for this intentional improvement to its own evolutionary processes.

This then creates the two greatest questions of the 21st Century for the individual or humanity as a whole. Will we intentionally align ourselves with the purposes goals and directionality of progressive evolution and intentionally influence our own personal evolution? And, will we partner with progressive evolution in co-creating a new level of evolutionary influence over the future of our planet and eventually even the future of our universe?" Lawrence Wollersheim

(The following is an advanced overview of the the meta-principles of progressive evolution. The Universe Principles of Sustainability in both their Right Actions and Right Attitudes forms present them in a much more simple form.)

How can you ever really know your own life's direction and purpose unless you first know the bigger direction and purposes of life itself? The following will help. Look over this list of the universe's evolutionary core purposes and ask yourself, how does your life align or not align with them.

The main integral and unstoppable (or nearly unstoppable,) processes levels and steps containing the core consistently reoccurring patterns, "products," "universe self-interests" or inherent "values," and "goals" of the directionality or impulses of progressive evolution within the universe are as follows:

  • Continuous creative release of its potentials and potentiality (for a created or evolved thing to become what it can.) This continuous release or realization of potential births continuous evolutionary change (experimentation,) which births increasing
  • Expanding complexity novelty and diversity, (In some ways all of the other progressive levels below can be seen as the unpacking of the previous level of complexity into newer levels of progressing expanding complexity novelty and diversity. Expanding complexity like all expanding or maintaining things in the universe requires expanding or maintaining energy exchanges),
    • Which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then creates... (parts here is meant as things, not necessarily locations,)
  • Expanding growth, productivity (or reproductively,) and/or expansion, (again requiring more energy exchanges,)
    • which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges...
  • Expanding creativity, (mutation, novelty and innovation again requiring more energy exchanges,)
    • which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges...
  • Expanding self-awareness and self-reflectiveness, of the relevant exterior and interior environment present, past and future (even through future modeling capabilities, through expanding use of technology and prediction skills,) within both the parts of the whole and within the whole itself as a collective union,
    (This self-awareness [consciousness,] includes expanding levels of awareness of others, the planet, the universe and even that great mystery that is the origin of our universe,)
    • which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges...
  • Expanding self-organization, autopoiesis, (which also includes the freedom to make one's own decisions and choices and self-discipline and self-responsibility,) which again requires more energy exchanges, (For more on self organization principles, click here.)which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges...
  • Expanding full-consequence capture, full accountability,(which requires expanding levels of full transparency for all parts of a whole and the wholes themselves. In one way or another, evolution eventually and invariably always enforces increasing levels of consequence capture upon any parts or wholes that do not learn, adapt "cooperate," fair energy exchange and progressively evolve. High and expanding levels of transparency and accountability are critical to enacting full consequence capture because the powerful evolutionary self-interests of either the individual parts or the self-interests of wholes [groupings/unions,] when hidden or not accounted for will always take over and lessen the essential optimal balance and tension between the self-interests of the individual and the self-interests of the whole group or union.
    • which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges...
  • Expanding learning resulting in skill/ability, knowledge and intelligence,
    • which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges...
  • Expanding adaptability (choice, freedom, flexibility or control of the environment for some parts and wholes in either adjusting to the environment or changing the environment,)
    • which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then also emerges...
  • Expanding robustness, redundancies and reserves of and in the parts and unions,
    • which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges...
  • Expanding or alternating periods of compression and/or centralization
    • which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges...
  • Expanding integration, harmony and resultant order resulting in new synergies, (which again like all of the above in one way or another requires more energy exchanges,)
    • which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges...
  • Expanding cooperation, which aligns and effectively manages and balances the often competing self-interest tensions of all of the individual parts of the whole with the overall health and well being of the whole as a whole system and union, (which again requires more energy exchanges, which appropriately and fairly share and balance the needs of parts and wholes for energy and resources to satisfy the second law of thermodynamics,)
    • which then in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges...
  • Expanding or new cooperative wholes (unions,) of greater scale, (which again requires more energy exchanges,)
    • which then as a consequence of this new or expanding cooperation creates...
  • Expanding interdependence, (by parts and wholes which then also loops back upon the parts and the whole (union,) to further motivate greater cooperation because of the expanded interdependence and expanding interconnectedness,)
    • which in some parts and unions within the universe eventually then emerges...
  • Expanding control over the environment for individuals and cooperative unions (that also are in harmony with the principles of universe evolution,) resulting in expanding sustainability for the cooperating parts and wholes, which again requires more energy exchanges, (in part because of the increased cooperation between and by the parts and the wholes [unions,]) which ​at some developmental level of progressive evolution and only in some human parts within the universe eventually results in...
    • Expanding reflection by those human self-reflective parts upon the total universe environment and the universe's complete evolutionary processes and systems (including the Universe's Big Bang origin.) This creates a whole universe consciousness in the part of the universe. In a way, the universe becomes conscious of itself through its part.
  • And finally, possible transcendence of universe parts or whole unions. At the "end" of the universe's spiraling ever larger and more complex evolutionary developmental process lies the potential for some form of transcendence for some of the parts or wholes unions into completely new things (or, at the theoretical end of the universe potentiality all the parts as a whole union transcending to something new.) This then potentially restarts a new spiral of progressive evolution at a new level where once again continuous creative release of new potentials and potentiality (for the newly evolved or created thing to become and realize what it can become.) This continuous release or realization of new potential then once again births continuous change, which births increasing... (through all of most of the cycle/spiral of development above.) If transcendence did not occur in universe parts or whole unions for any reason, (which also includes, failed experiments, retrogressions, collapses and extinctions,) then the universe evolutionary process wastes nothing of that which has reached the limits of its existence, growth or developmental potential release cycle. It then recycles back all those resources and parts or whole unions back into evolution to be used in new creativity. (Collapses serve a necessary evolutionary purposes in removing what would not learn and adapt and for creating new space for new evolutionary experiments.)
