Guiding motivation
Why we do this

This project is motivated by a spirit of service and a vision of national and global wellbeing. It is grounded in a long history of work motivated in this spirit, that spans the full range of intellectual and spiritual inquiry. From our point of view, this project is something like a natural expression of "collective evolution", of the evolution of civilization over hundreds of years, that we believe is coming into a kind of dramatic focus today.

It might be argued that human culture has always been in crisis. War and famine and disease are not new. Human misbehavior or a willingness to follow charismatic authoritarians to the great detriment of culture is not new. But today, we are indeed facing critical issues in "the collective system of human life" that are very new.

Global warming and rising sea levels are new. The surge in population growth is new. The explosive growth of science is new. The tremendous power of the internet is new. Low-cost ubiquitous international travel is new. The degree of explicit human interdependence is very new.

We have entered a new epoch in the history of civilization, and it can certainly be argued that new standards and a new level of common understanding of the human situation and capacity are needed as part of the collective human response to this new dawn.

The ideas presented here in this framework are interdisciplinary and holistic. They represent a departure from the inherent assumption that academic or scientific or philosophical inquiry must be highly compartmentalized in order to be valid or adequately detailed.

Yes, this approach involves some "trespassing" across traditional and often very legitimate boundaries. Sciences are complicated and difficult. Oversimplification is misleading. This project is an exercise in "defragmentation", and a lot of it as it stands is merely a note or place-marker for future development. But this work has a substantial background, and is documented in the best literature.


What is the meaning of the Closed Loop vision?

Why is it important?

We are supporting coordinated collective response to global crisis.

Our work is motivated in a holistic and inclusive spirit, and is intended to consider

  • Sciences
  • Humanities
  • Intercultural
  • Interspiritual
  • Common values / common ground
  • Global / local ethics
  • Bridge building and network development
  • Technical solutions

Our objective is the development of successful and enlightened global culture in a context of holistic and responsible local freedom.

Developing collaborative networks

Developing collaborative networks

As this project grows and matures, we want to interact with individuals and agencies who share our concern for an enlightened global holism and spirit of cooperation.

We can do this because our internet platform supports it, because we have been developing projects with this general intent for many years, and because the time is right. Projects like this are needed in the world.
