Beyond Planetary Citizenship, Universe Citizens and Evolutioneers

"Our loyalties are to the species and the planet. We speak for Earth. Our obligation to survive is owed not just to ourselves but also to that Cosmos, ancient and vast, from which we spring." Carl Sagan

"Universe Citizens and Evolutioneers know that to be a truly effective planetary and national citizens they must understand the laws and principles of the progressive evolution of the whole universe viewed as a complex adaptive system. This is simply because our planet's evolution at every level is part of that larger universe system of evolution and subject to its larger laws. If you really want to be an effective planetary citizen, you will also need to become a Evolutioneer and Universe Citizen." Lawrence Wollersheim

Introduction

Being an authentic Evolutioneer and Universe Citizen is not a casual or easy task. It requires both considerable study and diligent and persistent practice of the evolutionary principles for progressive evolution to become an authentic Universe Citizen and Evolutioneer. Because of the levels of evolutionary study and life skills practice that are required it is best to think of becoming a Universe Citizen and Evolutioneer in terms of various achievement levels that will develop over time i.e. Universe Citizen level one, level two, level three etc.

More About Evolutioneers and Universe Citizens

"There is no solution for civilization or even the human race, other than the creation of world government." Albert Einstein

Evolutioneers and Universe Citizens are individuals who are awakening to the fact that they are and have always been, first and foremost, citizens of the evolutionary universe, a citizenship that both includes and transcends all other forms of local, national or planetary citizenship already recognized by themselves or others. They recognize that along with Universe Citizen rights come Universe Citizen responsibilities, and they are willing to commit to taking an active and responsible role in helping to consciously co-evolve and "partner" in the progressive evolution of the universe.

A significant means through which Evolutioneers and Universe Citizens fulfill such responsibilities is through understanding and living the new Universe Evolutionary Worldview's perspective, which contains the vital ingredients for our planet's progressive evolution. For it truly is as Einstein once said: “You cannot solve a problem with the same consciousness that created it. You must learn to see the world anew.” The new universe evolutionary consciousness created within true Universe citizens and Planetary Evolutioneers allows these individuals to see the world anew so that they may better partner with the universe in creating the new ways of acting necessary for the progressive evolution of all life on the planet and in the universe.

"We do not belong to ourselves, even mostly. We belong to the universe." Buckminster Fuller

Individuals and groups that understand and use the unifying, realigning and restructuring power of the Universe Evolutionary Worldview are true Planetary Evolutioneers and Universe Citizens and they are also some of the brightest stars working to make a better world.  They work in every important area of the global culture such as economics, politics, science the environment and even religion and personal spirituality.

Universe Citizens and Evolutioneers can better play their important world-making roles by also understanding and practicing the Universe Principles of Sustainability, committing to realizing the Universe Charter and taking classes online at the Universe College.

Currently with the escalating threat to the existence of humanity and future generations now caused by increasing global warming, which could soon lead to irreversible climate destabilization, at this particular time in human history, the most practical and important first life practice for all Evolutioneers and Universe Citizens to do is to creatively use the best of science to help us build sustainable lifestyles, livelihoods, communities and nations in order to rapidly eliminate the looming ecological threat to our shared climate and future. 

If we stabilize the climate before we go off the climate destabilization cliff, we will preserve our planet so that all of the other dreams that we have can be achieved and all of the other challenges that we face both individually and collectively can be resolved. If we fail to create sustainable lifestyles, livelihoods, communities and nations on a "first things first" priority basis as the key life practice of Evolutioneers and Universe Citizens, the planet will continue escalating into deeper ecological catastrophe to a level that could soon become irreversible and then evolve into an extinction or near extinction level event for all humanity as well as most of the other species living on the Earth. It is an undeniable fact that all other life dreams and practices do depend for their very future existence upon us re-stabalizing the planetary climate as our first practice. 

Our movement does have a specific social activism program to help Universe Citizens and Evolutioneers resolve humanity's number one threat --- climate destabilization caused by global warming. It is called the Job One for Humanity plan. (Click the following link to review this life-critical program Job One for Humanity.)

Planetary Evolutioneers, Universe Citizens and Planetary Government (Level 1.)

It is inevitable that some form of planetary government will eventually evolve on our planet. The catastrophic effects of global warming (global climate destabilization,) as well other ecological, resource, economic and political issues may do much to bring the needed universal planetary law and planetary enforcement systems into being.

Universe Citizens and Evolutioneers do want to see this new planetary government happen and they work intelligently and actively to see that it does, but --- only in such a way that it aligns with and embraces the principles of progressive evolution, the Universe Evolutionary Worldview and the Universe Evolutionary Principles of Sustainability as well as other documents of Universe Citizenship found on this page.

"Planetary Evolutioneers who also are Universe Citizens are magnificently skillful at holding the big-picture, long-term perspective --- our 13.7 billion years of successful universe evolution --- while they solve the smaller scale and smaller time frame challenges. In fact, in order to be the most effective Planetary Evolutioneer that you can be, one also rally needs to be a Universe Citizen. With the universe-scaled evolutionary perspective and universe-scaled wisdom of a Universe Citizen problems that seem unsolvable to a an individual holding just the perspective and wisdom of Planetary Evolutioneer get solved." Lawrence Wollersheim

Universe citizens and Evolutioneers hold that the wellbeing of the whole of humanity and the planet is senior to the wellbeing on any particular nation or group of nations. This does not mean that we as citizens of any particular nation do not ignore the legitimate legal obligations of that nation.

The constitution of the new planetary government has yet to be written by some self-organizing Evolutioneers and Universe Citizen. It would or course first be creatively written and based upon the following principles and facts integrated into one new constitutional document that would embrace and sustain the goals of evolutionary life in the universe:

a.) the principles of progressive evolution because if it was not, it would be out of sustainable alignment with the progressive evolution of life in the universe itself,

b.) the Universe Evolutionary Principles of Sustainability(This contains a summary and explanation of the principles of universe evolution that can be used in daily life.)

c.) The Universe Charter

d.) Universe Declaration of Rights for Planetary Citizens, Planetary Evolutioneers and Universe Citizens

The Essential Reading of the Universe Evolutionary Worldview of Informed Planetary Evolutioneers,  Planetary Citizens and Universe Citizens (Level 3.)

1The the Evolutionary Manifesto by John Stewart. The follow up concise "what must be done" plan based on his previous Evolution's Arrow. It is an essential document on progressive evolution and what a informed commitment to progressive evolution means to the lives, goals, behaviors and attitudes of Evolutioneers and Universe Citizens. Click here to read the Evolutionary Manifesto, Our Role in the Future Evolution of Life.

2. View from the Center of the Universe by Joel Primack and Nancy Abrams. (The books View from the Center of the Universe and "The Universe Story" by Brian Swimme constitute one of the most accurate and complete statements of the common and shared cosmology and new genesis story currently held within the Universe Evolutionary Worldview.

3. EarthDance: Living Systems in Evolution by Elisabet Sahtouris. A deeply interesting and amazing read of how evolution shows us over and over again that it is not "survival of the fittest," but survival of the most wisely cooperative.

4. Evolution's ArrowThe Direction of Evolution and the Future of Humanity, by John Stewart. (This also is an essential new Universe Evolutionary Worldview read summarizing the key elements of progressive evolution.)

5. Maps of Time An Introduction to Big History by David Christian (and his CD lecture series called "Big History." This book and these CDs provide a multi-disciplinary look at all of the universe's evolution including all of human history. This progressive evolution work is finally being taught in universities around the world.)

6. A Brief History of Everything, Ken Wilber. (The evolution of the universe for individuals coming from or appreciating an integral evolutionary perspective.)

7.) The following is a course not a book. How to Become a Universe Evolutionary (If you would like to know more about what it takes as a universe citizen to also be a partner with progressive evolution in the universe, click this link to go to the How To Be A Universe Evolutionary, course in the Life Sciences and the New Universe Worldview section.)

8.) Human Purpose and Transhuman Potential: A Cosmic View for our Future Evolution by Ted Chu, PhD. (Available early 2014.) We see this book as the most motivating and inspirational overview of what it means to be a universe citizen and evolutionary. Ted presents the "next generation" specifics on what inspired conscious evolution in alignment with evolutionary science looks like. His vision of the future of evolution and humanity's role in it is well grounded in history and science and it will stretch the vision of the biggest evolutionary thinkers and universe citizens. At Universe Spirit we now recommend that every member reads this book as part of their intermediate level education on what it takes to be an authentic evolutionary and universe citizen forwarding evolution on Earth and then out into the universe.

9.) Evolutionaries by Carter Philips. A well written overview of the universe evolutionary lifestyle and history of many diverse parts of the movement.

10.) Life Rules by Ellen Laconte. An "best of class" book about bottom-up organic self organizing democracy that harmonizes with the natural laws of closed system planetary evolution. This new model discussed in her book is much different than the top down, power influenced democratic governments driven on "growth economics" theories of infinite growth and infinite substitutability that we have today. (While this organization agrees with most of the ideas in this book, we do differ with the author on several issues and recommendations such as the importance of what we believe is the vital local community/global governance balancing in the critical and simultaneous role of international law and international governance to limit individual, local and regional excess and expansion while simultaneity educating about, aligning and enforcing essential minimal policies for the planetary common good and defense.)
