Along Pierre Teilhard de
Chardin, Julian Huxley
and the other
cosmic evolution, from the Big Bang up to now, presents
nine levels of
complexity, which can be grouped into three stages: the lithosphere
(levels 1 to 5, the "dead" matter, -strings, quarks,
molecules- organised by elementary physical
laws), the biosphere
to 8, the "living" matter, -eobionts,
protozoa, metazoa- organised by
genetic codes and active by reflexes), and the noosphere
"thinking" matter, -human society- organized by the
software of the
human brain and
active by creative intelligence).
This website aims
become a think-tank for people who want to implement
i.e. to reflect creatively about a better future for
humanity by gathering insight into its profound
scientific tool is the integration technique which
allows to yield
plausibility out of apparently divergent theories.
limits itself to facts of the past and some
of the present, excluding all not yet generally
accepted concepts. The
scientific world tends to limit the qualification of
theories that can be calculated and reproduced in the
facto excluding innovative
psychosocial theories and reliable thoughts about the
next stage of
human evolution (Teilhard called this the Noosphere).
Hence we strongly
need a website where plausible and useful ideas about
perhaps the most
important of all questions -man's happiness in a
better future- can be
collected, elaborated and shared by the general public
stimulating creative thinkers.
The technique of integration
is very well suited to serve as a scientific method
where it is (still) impossible to calculate or to
doesn't yield proofs, but enhances the plausibility of
levels comparable with the physical scientific method.
philosophers and scientists used this method
intuitively. The technique
was reintroduced by Hegel with his thesis / antithesis
theory, and is consciously used by postmodern thinkers
The technique of integration
is the most essential interaction and thinking
Peer-to-Peer forms of cooperation (p2p), where the
individual contributions is considered as largely
superior to the
traditional method of proof, refutation and choice.
This procedure led
to applications as Linux, Wikipedia, etc.
At the same time, the
integrative method appears to be the best tool to
construct a website on such topics.
The texts of
website are logically grouped into
generalities on this site, 1
phenomenology, 2 logic, 3 the brain
B. the individual: 4 the
in general, 5 pathological mind, 6
C. groups and society: 7
sociology in general, 8 history and suboptimal
functioning, 9 optimal groups
Visitors are invited
new pages to this site, and to improve
existing ones. Apart from the topic, there is only one
condition: an integrative style should, where
possible, be used.
Visitors wanting to
collaborate may simply blog their comments,
suggestions and proposed texts.
If possible and if
qualities are preserved, this website will try
to integrate itself with analogous projects and to
disappear as a
separate project. An earlier and more elaborate website in Dutch already exists.
