A worldview is a centering meta-paradigm of reality, a unifying cultural consciousness that both underlies and almost always invisibly conditions and controls an individual’s (or a culture's,) way of knowing, seeing, valuing and most importantly, acting in the world. A new worldview always emerges and evolves naturally when the previous worldview no longer adequately solves the most critical new problems of the times that are arising for the individual and the society. Each new worldview expansion provides transcending more effective solutions that simply cannot be seen from within the constraints of the previous worldview. Each new worldveiw encompasses and includes the best of the previous worldviews. Each new worldview eventually causes a great re-alignment of how individuals and cultures view their world. This eventually re-aligns how they act in it. The new Universe Evolutionary Worldview whose core is derived from the science-grounded meta-principles of Evolution 2.0 is such a new worldview.
On the remaining pages of this online booklet you will find the full overview of the vision, principles and organizational structure for the creation of a new kind of progressive evolution aligned (Evolution 2.0 aligned,) self-organizing community. We call these intentional communities Universe Communities.
Our unique attributes evolved over a period of roughly 6 million years. They represent modifications of great ape attributes that are roughly 10 million years old, primate attributes that are roughly 55 million years old, mammalian attributes that are roughly 245 million years old, vertebrate attributes that are roughly 600 million years old, and attributes of nucleated cells that are perhaps 1,500 million years old. If you think it is unnecessary to go that far back in the tree of life to understand our own attributes, consider the humbling fact that we share with nematodes (tiny wormlike creatures) the same gene that controls appetite. At most, our unique attributes are like an addition onto a vast multiroom mansion. It is sheer hubris to think that we can ignore all but the newest room.
