A HOLISTIC REVOLUTION
This project is an activist architecture for comprehensive spirit-led social change across all sectors of social organization.
Every aspect of the project emerges from a single idea or integral concept, pulling all of these traditionally disparate elements into a single unified framework and holding them all as facets of a single integrated whole.
The activism phase of the project translates the philosophical and spiritual vision into a series of practical action steps that can be taken at the local level by anyone attracted to this path.
The concept ONE is a perfect framework for collaborative alliance development, and cooperative projects can be perfectly fitted together within its framework.
This outline is a growing work in progress, Wednesday, August 23, 2017
Reality is ONE. All ideas, all concepts, all distinctions, all opposites emerge in human thought within the framework of this inherent all-pervasive universal container of reality.
This understanding of ONE has emerged thoughtout the history of civilization, and become the foundation for culture, religion and community.
ONE has been understood in varying ways in different contexts, but the fundamental essence of the idea has remained constant thrughout history in all the most successful socities.
All the elements of this project, including the union of science and religion, or science and spirituality, emerge from this fundamental framework.
This idea can be understood in deeply metaphorical terms, as seen in traditional symbls like mandalas and other examples of sacred geometry
ONE can also be understood in scientific and highly analytic terms, in ways that are consistent with cognitive science, set theory, mathematical semantics and computer science.
