A. EarthVersion 2023: A PediaPedia Outline Review/Preview as Due to a Collective Planetary Intelligence

PediaPedia Sapiens 2023 At our glossy outset, this double word is meant to remind of the “encyclopedic” identity of this naturalgenesis.net annotated anthology. As this section will illustrate, its historic, revolutionary basis can engender an organic outline sequence, rather than just an alphabetic series. But two decades on into the 2020s, its contents can now be attributed to an Earthumanity sapiensphere transition whom has commenced to learn and know on her/his own.

Whole Outline Review/Preview As this phrase notes, the main content will cover be an update survey to especially record significant advances and breakthroughs of each chapter, section and verse, now 85 in all. A dozen or so select 2018 – 2023 citations will also be listed.

Sustainable Earthropocene Future For all these reasons, in the midst of multi-demic, critical life-support crises, nucular threats, there is such a need for a knowledge discovery event. But it does seem to be the credible case that over 2020 t0 2030, it may be possible to propose the very idea of a phenomenal procreation meant and made to be found. Our intent of all these entries ever remains an intentional, decisive, planetwise, unified, super-oirganic ecosphere.


The present entry is a 2018 – 2022 review and preview as an EarthSmart personsphere seems to reach a new phase of an integral convergent synthesis, as it may close on an actual discovery. This Planatural resource online since 2002 now covers 4,000 text pages with some 9,000 references across 85 sections. After the new, extensive Introduction above, here we enter another, latest survey with a current recital of its premises and rationales as a drafty, synoptic, outline proposal, so to ever gather so many aspects into natural narrative edification. IN

Its main format will then be a full posting of the website Table of Contents so to highlight advances for each topical subject field and item. An array of choice references will add documentation.. By this this approach, a new credence and closure might qualify and express and a phenomenal cocreative organic universality as an ecosmic genesis. In accord with the Planatural Genesis introductory essay above, at this Earth hour, into 2023 a proven veracity of a Genetic-like Code can provide a critical contribution. Along with A Naturome Ecode, this long format across the 80+ sections can provide an extensive scientific support.

A Caveat Please recall that all this content is attributed to and drawn from a 21st century advent of a global person/sapiensphere whom might be learning and knowing on her/his own. Our premise is that such findings can be found across the scientific journals, if of a mind to allow and peruse. We record these writings are not my opinion but evidently there by themselves.

This PediaPedia Sapiens 2023 essay is arranged inio several segments. It opens with a current survey of evident brain/mind-like cognitive qualities of an Earthumanity sapience. Within such a knowsphere context, we would propose a Planatural PhiloSophia to gather the scientific aspects into a visionary narrative. As a main result, an array of revolutionary ecosmos uniVerse to EarthVersion features are recited as they may now reveal a unified, invariant spatial and temporal scenario. Its animate, fertile essence occurs by virtue of a self-organized, genomic-like vitality which energizes and informs an astrobiochemical network development. We go on with a detailed report of a double, Naturome Ecodel commonality, along with novel 2020s qualities

To continue, our rarest Earth has been able to support an evolutionary course of bodies, brains, intelligence, agency and selves to an extent it now appears as a stratified gestation. By this unique retrospect, an apparent geonativity event at term is alluded to. But in the past few years, as Super Earth Nova documents, a singular significance for our home bioplanet as a unique fittest candidate has arisen. By turns, if kinder wins over cinder, an Earthropocene sustainable, participatory, cocreative future can open for precious Earthlings. A fourth Earthernity 2030 module is added for all manner of projects and speculations going forward.


Planatural PhiloSophia Wisdome

Major Evolutionary Emergent Transition At the ourset, a further stage might lately be seen in occurrence as it ascends to and closes over life’s planetary personsphere. Into these years, it has taken a while to recognize this as it may only now become evident.

An EarthKinder Individuality As its Chap.V. Sect. A documents, each nested level from genes to peoples seems to take on a personal identity, often with a new genetic-like mode, as a new whole cellular grouping begins. Yes, we cite KinderKind in accord.

Global Sapiensphere As a prime consequence, an equivalent brainy facility, as it forms and proceeds, can be seen as learning, gaining knowledge, and maybe coming upon a real discovery by her/his own self-endeavor.

WholeWorld BiCameral Complementary Cognizance Such an implied, projected cerebral faculty (see Dan Graham, et al Chap. II, Sect C), ought to similarly take on archetypal discrete node and link relational phases. In this way a new, infant-like visionary encounter might accrue and occur on an KinderKind scale.

Sophia Sapiens: a Woman’s Ecosmos For these reasons, an ecological reproductive spacescape with an encoded fertility (From Eternity to Maternity) could well be viewed. As Gender Complements cites, a feminine competence uses each side join a fine acuity with a holistic, integral scene so as to achieve a meaningful witness.

Going on, it is imperative that an entrenched patriarchy be fully indicted as toxic egotist madmen brutalize, enslave, silence any feminine quality. (Just read the daily Human Rights news.) Here is a fatal aberration of rapacious, barbaric violence that seems bent on a final Armageddon.

Phenomenal Knowledge To stay on message, a grand benefit would be a whole mindful ability to observe an independent existence with its own certain identity and
temporal course, (which left side men are unable to do), so tp allow this genesis vision. That is to say (as I have been told) we need to have a wherewithal to see something dynamic and formative going on by itself. Every facet of our occasion then gains a double dimension, whereof people become exemplary participants.

A Discovery Code Event For the time being, a note is made that a once and future concept that this universal presence, however vast, comes with a built-in way it is made and meant to be known by we Earthlings. Wuman and universe. microcosm and Macrocosm are one and the same as some manner of a familial ecosmos.

eLibrary of eCosmos Over the 21st century, as these qualities, features, occurrences reinforce over the 21st century, as the many topical website references attest, a worldwise edition of an open “accumulated knowledge repository” has come to envelope so as to provide an integral knowledge to guide us through. That is to say our Participatory role much involves an Iteracy Literacy achievement by way of its genetic-like hereditary code

A Procreative Family Ecosmos UniVerse

A Revolutionary Procreative Organic Ecosmos Universe We can now move on to an epochal encounter of an animate, innately fertile, “pregnant” (C. de Duve) emergent development as it altogether forms in our knowsphere midst. An olden left side, men only mode has wound up with a pointless morbidity, case closed, not even Ptolemaic. In regard, one can now gather and integrate many features and qualities that can just now be found across the literature.

But a comparison of these old and new moribund machine to an innate organic fertility views, it is important to note that our ascendant EarthVersion is distinguished by a second deep dimension of an immaterial, mathematic, genomic-like source. Particles are “pointless, “peoples” are surely not. This independent realm then carries an informative prescription so as to generate, self-organize, and impel phenotype-like phenomenal beings and becomings from uniVerse to our peopleVerse.

A Moon to MultiVerse Spacescape At this point, this 400 year historic expanse is known, in our home uniVerse, to be populated with a trillion or so galaxies, each with billions of vicarious stars. Since c. 2000, an epochal discovery of myriad stellar orrerys with some sextillion profligate global objects has occurred. A philosophia point could add that it is beginning to seem that an entire uniVerse may have a certain, knowable identity and temporal course of its own

Solar/Ovular Planetary Incubators Similarly, as the ExoEarths section reports, there are current inklings that these starry systems may have an overall conducive, life-bearing, evolutionary essence. As if sunny incubators, habitable (benign) mid-zones then favor longer-duration bioworlds (see Earth Alive) can give life a chance to evolve, develop, personify and maybe rise to become worldwise progeny.

A UniVersal Naturome Ecode

Ecosmomics: An Independent, Informative Genomic Source With an organic, fertile spacescape in place, an essential biological astro-milieu ought then be considerably graced with its own innate, genetic quality. This Chapter IV describes and documents many ways since the 1990s that such a mathematic, generative source cause has been found, quantified, explained and distilled to a common code. Thus a bigender familial form and its exemplary, omic/iconic result lately distinguishes everything and everyone with a heretofore unkonwn actual, factual image and significance.

Since the 1990s, complex adaptive systems, multiplex neural networks, cellular automata, fractal invariances, interactive agents, computational intelligences qualities have been found to infuse and inform every scale and instance from universe to us. A prime 21st century finding is that as these archetype modes (node/link, me/We) engage in communicative behaviors, they proceed to self-organize into emergent, viable patterns and processes into ensembles. In accord, a major achievement of our global genius in the 2020s is that a whole spatial and temporal recurrence in kind has been robustly proven.

In more regard, the full Natureome section next provides extensive references as this common result becomes evident over every depth and breath. A timeline from 2000 to 2015 to 2022 now defines a scientific sequence as many initial versions were clarified and melded into one iconic, biconic and triune animate unity (aka as yin/yand and Tao). These earlier years, focussed on a spatial-component complex adaptive systems phase (John Holland, Murrary Gell Mann) through to c. 2015. The node/link network theories and topologies over this period added more structural features.
However in the later 2010s, a second dynamic, reciprocal process became evident which this biological phenomena appears to seek and settle into. First cited in the 1970s by Stuart Kauffman, and the 1980s by Per Bak, one could note Dante Chialvo and Miguel Munoz (search names) today. This steady propensity has been dubbed a Self-Organized Criticality whence a temporal fluidity maintains a middle balance between more or less orderly, polar states. Altogether it seems that life knows best and prefers an active contrast between such archetypal modes for any organic or social instance.

Nature’s “sweet spot” poise. These 21st century anatomy and physiology, fractal and vitality features have been dubbed by this title (D. Chialvo) for their common node/link, me/We, past/future, conserve/create, golden mean quality. Another “Chimera” version (Anna Zakharova) resides in both phases at once, As a latest example, we cite Phase Transitions and Criticality in the Collective Behavior of Animals by Pawel Romanczuk and Bryan Daniels at (arXiv:2211.03879.) wherein Humboldt University and Arizona State University theorists conceive an integral convergence of their form and function. The paper will be a chapter for the 2023 Volume VII of the World Scientific series Order, Disorder, and Criticality, edited by Yuri Holovatch in Lviv, Ukraine.


An Evolutionary Developmental Embryonic Gestation

With all this in place, we reach life’s Ecosmic and Earthly progression from spontaneous network origins all the way to a major planetary personsphere fultillment. From 2022, a once and future appreciation can arise in an animate, fecund, encoded procreativity. (Indeed in Darwin’s day, a popular theme was “universal gestation.”) But a 20th century study of skeletal bodies and a random modern synthesis led to its denial and demise. Nut we can now list an array of advances into a worldwise century which can reveal an oriented “genesis synthesis.”

As Chap. V enters in such detail, an informative source of a self-organizing, genetic-like code vivifies a reproductive course. By the 2020s, a nested major transitions scale of a cellular wholes extends all the way to our global resolve forms. Into this year, a new Chapter VI can describe a neural, cognitive encephalization which proceeds, thickens, learns, quickens, along with metabolism and morphology.

As this evolutionary ascent goes forth, a relative degree of individual proactive agency and behavior in cohesive groupings, aka creative union, fluoresces and flourishes. In addition, as Chap. V, D records, in 2019 the British Linnean Society and colleagues (Peter Corning, Stuart Newman) realized that it was no longer possible to ignore, or deny that a teleological, orthogenetic orientation was actually going on. (See Chapter V for many more reasons.)

GeoNativity: A 1990 – 2020s – 2060 Parturient Planet

As our Planatural Genesis introduction above notes, the website considers, life’s long evolution can take on an actual identity as an embryonic developmental gestation. As on occasion in these essays, and by reference entries lately quantify, we cite some affinities between a person (mother) and a gravid bioglobe. As one may just follow this theme, three prime features might serve. As references by Karin Schwab, Hugo Largercrantz, Jean-Pierre Changeux and others cite, it has been found that at some point in the birth/hatch process each fetus awakens from a long dream sleep to their own self-consciousness. In an oviparous case, each hatchling has had to break their shell by their own initiative. Another aspect for any organism would be the reception, in some form, of their own personal genetic complementary code.


This Autumn 2022 capsule state of the dynamic ecosmos uniVerse now proceeds to an essay and chapter survey.

1. Quantum Organics in the 21st Century

As the introduction records, and citations convey, into the 21st century a quite different understanding of this deepest physical realm has been achieved. Rather than so strange as to be incoherent, the prior classical divide is dissolved by virtue of finding the same complex network phenomena in self-organizing effect even here. Thus a “second revolution,” alongside the olden model, is now apace with computational, internet and behavioral advances. A consequence is an ability to fill in a whole dynamic universality even for this once arcane scale.
