"Open Source Religion and Open Source Spirituality is the future's evolutionary next step beyond today's global interfaith movement. It will significantly help to create a true meta-spirituality and global spiritual commons for all of humanity."---Lawrence Wollersheim
A Global Spiritual Commons is defined as a common and free access spiritual wisdom resource (database,) cyber hub and collaborative network created and expanded by any and all individuals or organizations who wish to share their spiritual wisdom and experience in an open-source, peer-to-peer collaboration and co-creation. The Open Source Religion and Spirituality process and spiritual and administrative principles listed below this section facilitate the expansion, maintenance and the free and open use of the Global Spiritual Commons.
What is most exciting about the results of these online and offline open-source religion and spirituality collaborations is that they not only expand the Global Spiritual Commons, but they also create a place where you will find both a place and process where everyone can share in both the spiritual and scientific wisdom from humanity’s vast heritage (or add and share the wisdom from their own spirituality or personal experience,) to help emerge new visions and perspectives of Ultimate Reality and for creating a better world of meaning, sustainable prosperity and justice for all of humanity. The networked global spiritual commons holds the promise of becoming humanity’s vast central knowledge base of all spiritual and science-related wisdom, which can be more fully collected, organized and freely distributed through multiple-system and multiple-channel delivery systems. The multiple-delivery systems and channels will specifically adapt this continuously expanding knowledge base for more effective and easier user assimilation by tailoring the presentation of this spiritual wisdom specifically to an individual’s unique learning style, personality, current psychological development level, gender, age, culture or other important “isms”.
In the dynamic, evolutionary synthesis process of the co-creative assembly and inclusion of all of humankind’s spiritual and science-related wisdom in this global life and spirit commons, there is a natural pruning that occurs resulting in the emergence of more useful and/or appropriate spiritual or dated scientific wisdom. In some cases this newly emerged wisdom will transcend earlier wisdom in its universality, inclusiveness, meanings, values, or in the way that it better integrates all spiritual and physical life wisdom into more useful maps and metaphors for not only the co-creators and participants in the global life and spirit commons, but for all of humankind. In the following key Principles for Building an Open Source Religion and Spirituality section much more will be said to help define the specifics about what the Global Spiritual Commons is, what it specifically does and what the Open Source Religion and Spirituality processes and principles are.
Currently our Universe Spirit website is serving as a host node and host networking center for open-source spirituality process and the expanding global spiritual commons. It is our hope that soon other open-source spirituality nodes, networks and communities will begin operating all over the world.
