VII. Our Earthuman Ascent: A Major Evolutionary Transition in Individuality

B. EarthKinder: A Personsphere Progeny

The first four sections of Part VI, Earth Life Emergence, documented how common, genome-like self-organizing forms and functions underlie, impel and distinguish a nested evolution from original conceptions to a viable biosphere. Integral Persons contained much evidence for bigender individuals as active, reciprocal exemplars of and participants in a self-making Earthly and Ecosmic genesis.

A further, sequential transition seems to be going on to an integral super-organic phase as if a planetary progeny. Earth is a finite globe which serves to compress our hyper-interconnected humanity into a whole somatic and cerebral physiosphere, along with a collaborative knowledge, and fledgling self-identity. This multipart section covers aspects of a linguistic cultural code, human societies as complex adaptive systems, a worldwide anatomy and metabolism, east/west and south/north bicameral civilizations, as also evident in world religions. The stage is then set to consider, in retrospect, how the long travail of world macrohistory may appear as a relative psychic individuation.
