We simply cannot expect to solve humanity's complex global challenges from only a local or global perspective. We must approach today's problems -- both personal and planetary alike -- from the additional and vastly wider perspective of the the universe (currently know as the Universe Evolutionary Worldview.) This perspective encompasses the universe in the entirety of its time and space and the lessons that we can learn from its 13.7 billion years of successful progressive evolution. It is as Albert Einstein said: "You cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it. You must learn to see the world anew." When we see our complex planetary problems from the universe evolutionary perspective and its wisdom they are much, much easier to resolve.
