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.

Our future depends upon adapting or cultures to the realities of modern life at an unprecedented spatial and temporal scale. The idea that we can do this without a detailed knowledge of genetic and cultural pollution will appear laughable in retrospect --- if we are lucky enough to persist in our current maladaptive cultures for so long. Perhaps someday we will confidently steer ourselves into the future like Capt. Kirk and the starship Enterprise. Until then, we will be like the Wizard of Oz in his hot air balloon, who doesn't know how it works.
