Our Earthuman Progeny Finds a Phenomenal ProCreative Ecosmos Hereditary UniVerse: A Revolutionary 2020 - 2030 Discovery Decade
This new 2020 Introduction opens with a global glossary of title terms. At the outset, I again wish to say that these contents are not my own opinion, but wholly attributed, for all the reasons herein, to an emergent, 21st century semblance of a planetary prodigy/progeny whom seems to have commenced be learn and gain knowledge on her/his own.
Earthuman This 2020s manifestly evident word, an easy portmanteau, is offered to represent and join a present global milieu whence people and planet altogether have come to compose an ascendant worldwide individuality. In regard, it is posed so to identify by name the hyper-active, reciprocal flow and flood of informative interactions between a transitional sapiensphere and myriad member persons. As we contribute and inform each day and in turn read its copious, edifying content, a worldwise collective intelligence adds to and stocks an accumulated elibrary knowsphere repository.
Progeny (Prodigy) This PediaPedia (pedia media) website is now on its way to some 10,000 annotated entries. Its Table of Contents with 85 sections courses from these 2020s writings all the way to a viable Earthropocene era. By way of a genesis evolutionary synthesis, a consummate “Geonativity” becomes newly implied. Since every major emergent transition is now appreciated a new personal instance, so we make avail by our title as a “descendant” of an Eeternity to Maternity procreation.
Discovers For twenty years our Natural Genesis (now Planatural) website has been sought to identify and document a credible, proven alternative to aimless, accidental selection, which is yet still in vested place. In further accord with an encompassing phenomenal reality that exists by itself, we offer the concept that it has an overall essence and character which is made and meant for our participant inquiry and witness to find, decipher and understand. Into this third decade, a procreative organic universe, if to just ask and see, has in fact become robustly evident.
Revolutionary In this 21st century regard, an epochal encounter with an animate, innately fertile, developmental emergence as it altogether reveals itself to our collective knowsphere. An olden left side, men only, mode has wound up and fixated on with a pointless, accidental morbidity, not even Ptolemaic. In contrast with a mindless machine, our ascendant, animate EarthVersion is further graced by a deep dimension of an immaterial, mathematic, informative genomic-like source. Particles are “pointless, but “peoples” are surely not. And once again this precious home planet, maybe fittest after all, can achieve a central, leading edge significance.
Procreative As a natural narrative unfolds, by virtue of our planetary retrospect an overall propensity and process becomes apparent. With a nod to tradition, a woman’s ecosmic, galactic, solar system, ovoworld evolutionary development has now well take on a likeness of a reproductive gestation. In this regard, even though the world suffers such trauma, that a gravid, parturient moment has been entered.
Ecosmos UniVerse This pregnant phrase can be achieved by slightly modified words. By just putting “e” in front of cosmos, a sense of an “ecological” viability may be illumed. And “V” as a capital letter can serve to indicate that its biophysical essence comes with, is graced and distinguished with an inherent, familial, generative plot and purpose.
Hereditary In accord, as website explanations convey, an innately biological animation must come with its own genetic-like narrative which proceeds to program and inform every instance and scale from an original vivifying advent all the informative way to our consequent Geonativity event reception, a natural textuality written in biological code-script.
WumanWise We suggest another composite word as a better way to express our actual Earthumanity, We Are Family, a true fe/male bicameral wholeness. A one letter adjustment of human to wuman could quite simply include and designate a peaceable reciprocity altogether. As both halves of the sky and universe might become one, a luminous, numinous light can shine. (But we need now to cite a barbaric patriarchy that enslaves, silences, brutalizes women as the fatal outrage which will destroy all in its wake, and a future for children.)
This initial paragraph has neatly turned out to be written on May 8, 2022 which this year comes with confluence of significant qualities. At once, it is the historic Victory Europe 1945 (VE) day which was the official end of this phase of World War II. This Sunday is also celebrated as Mother’s Day in many countries. In addition, May 8 is commonly known as the Buddha’s birthday.
But in this tragic, perilous Mayhem, some 77 years later, might we Earthuman peoples be able to imagine a 21st century designation as a global Victory Earth with an actual ecosmic import. Once again, a prime purpose of our annotated anthology is to respectfully identify, report and document an emergent sapiensphere knowledge about a phenomenal, revolutionary, encoded discovery in our midst. And please view all these writings as a work in process. In regard our Home Page paragraphs are recalled next to set the scene.
As this continues to play out, by a November website view it may appear that the crucial concept could to be a global ability to fully find and quantify the presence of a genetic-like code from quantome, at-omic and ecosmic realms all the way to EarthVerse complementary elections (lack thereof) and (east vs. west) civilizations. In order to express its central emphasis, we added to the title, post a long documentary section as A Naturome Ecode, and consider further in EarthKinder Sapiens 2023: How Common, Bigender, Organic Exemplars are Being Found Everywhere.
This website resource seeks to report and document a collaborative 21st century EarthWise realization of an apparent revolutionary biological, genetic, ecosmic uniVerse whereof human beings have a central place and purpose . By 2022, it contains some 9,000 entries across 4,000 text pages, with 86 topical outline sections. A new Introduction is posted as An Earthuman Progeny Discovers a Phenomenal ProCreative Ecosmos Hereditary UniVerse: A 2020 – 2030 Major PediaWise Revolutionary Resource This lead essay is followed by Ecode 2023: EarthKinder Discovers a Universal, Independent Ecosmome to Geonome Exemplary Endowment and PediaPedia Earthica: Our KinderMind Begins to Learn, Know, Read and Write on Her/His Own.
But a prime difference is its attribution to the 21st century occasion of an emergent evolutionary transition in individuality on a planetary scale. As a result, a worldwise sapiensphere seems to have attained a collective, cognitive knowledge on her/his own due to self-organizing contributions by peoples everywhere. In all regard, the most vital finding by our global genius is a natural genetic code which can guide a better future. Its editor, Arthur Fabel (real name), draws upon many years in scientific, environmental, and organization projects, technical writings, book editing (2004 national award), and public presentations. HOME PAGE
This current edition will provide an extensive Review and Preview Introduction to our 21st century Natural Genesis bibliographic anthology website (I wrote some of this in 2021). At the outset, as an online entry its contents are in fact an active work in progress. But our present 2020 – 2030 span seems to be an especial event when many convergent Earthuman discoveries and features are coming altogether. An unexpected aspect may be a growing realization that our home Earth could be the fittest, optimum bioplanet to evolve this far.
By these vistas and lights, a 1990s to 2020s (pareturient) planetary period and consummate term may take on a “Geonativity” likeness. As approach, it might be sorted into three phases: 1990 – 2020 as a major global transition occurs, 2020 – 2030 as peoples need come to wakeful senses, and a 2030 – 2060 phase when a sustainable ecovillage Earthropocene era can be achieved. This invitation will occur through these paragraphs.

We open with a list of transitional EarthWise cognitive abilities and conceptual reasons by which an historic edification is now becoming possible.
1990–2020–2060: This span may be a penultimate phase as Earth life’s developmental gestation seems to reach some manner of a geonatal event.
Personsphere: major emergent evolutionary transition in individuality lately appears to be underway on a round planetary scale.
Sapiensphere: A consequent global brain faculty proceeds to learn and gain novel knowledge on her/his own.
Earthural PhiloSophia: A bicameral worldwise, cognitive awareness can then begin to achieve a descriptive explanation and real discovery.
Phenomenal Presence: A genesis ecosmos can be realized to have its own independent self-existence with a universal source code-script.
A Woman’s Wisdome: We record that all these future-friendly advances require such a reciprocal dot/connect, part/field, anima/animus whole brain faculty.
Here next is a survey of EcosmosWise findings which can be attributed to this prodigious Earthuman progeny.
A 21st Century Revolution: A particulate, materialist sterility sans people and purpose is being replaced by a fertile biological essential reality.
A Natural Genesis: An organic cocreation is being found whereof a temporal life, mind and persons in community developmental course goes forth on habitable bioworlds.
Habitable Planets: A salient ecosmological distinction is the prolific presence of myriad, contingent, ovular-like globular objects in sunny star orbital systems.
Ecosmomics: This organic milieu has necessarily been found to possess its own genetic-like code in exemplary effect from animate origins through evolutionary stages to our personal/communal/global geonomic endowment.
A Universal Correspondence: This part/Wave = Light, me/We = US, apparent bigender familiality occurs with an invariant similarity in each and every nested instance and scale.
Nature’s Sweet Spot: As a post-2015 findings, all dynamic systems such as stars, brains, climates, ecosystems, flocks, and epidemics seem to seek and settle in a self-organized criticality which balances dual more or less coherent states.
A Textual Character: After space/time and matter/energy, an informative content is lately found to distinguish as an encoded, generative script/score, prose/prosody quality.
Life's Emergent Gestation: A novel genesis evolutionary synthesis can now flesh out and describe a self-organizing, corporeal and cerebral ramifying sequence which proceeds as an oriented, quickening development.
Life’s Major Transitions Scale: A central evolutionary course is now well accepted as and defined by this nested whence each stage is seen to take on a new personal identity and a novel genetic code version.
Universal Evolution: Another feature is that a selective process from various candidates seems to be in effect even across planetary, solar, galactic, and maybe exocosmic scales.
Participatory UniVerse: A working model noted herein whereof a later result of Earthhuman-like beings has an ordained central place and purpose so to quantify, register and acknowledge.
An Intentional CoCreation: A wide array of evidential, scientific capabilities suggest that we collaborative Earthlings can begin new material and geonomic phases of a much better, sustainable futurity.
An EarthMost Significance: Since our home bioworld has passed through so many (15 – 20) critical check points, it may well be one in a quintillion that has evolved and succeeded this far, with all that portends.
To continue this opening orientation, we post a number of salient features, especial occurrences and a working uniVersion model. More highlights will be added in the 2020 section.
MEGA – Make Earth Great Always
We wish to convey that our home round planet altogether, by way of a latest flow of findings, may actually have a distinct, unitary significance of its own with regard to the fate and future of the entire Ecosmos UniVerse. But as I write in June 2021, the finite bio/noosphere remains engulfed and stressed by an intaglio of climatic and climactic crises. In 1947, Pierre Teilhard wrote The age of nations is over. The task before us, if we would not perish, is to build the Earth. Some eight decades later we are cutting it much too close. Our precious abode cannot survive and sustain when two trillion dollars wasted on global militaries each year, and while four billion peoples are ruled by some dozen dictators. It is vital that our true, cocreative value and import become a matter of ethnic and Earthling identity, pride and common mission. In timely regard, we note The Origin of Planetary Ethics in the Philosophy of Russian Cosmism by A. Bezgodov and K. Barezhev (2019).
Thinking Like a Planet: The Earth Ethic and an Ecosmos Ethic
We cite the environmentalist Baird Callicott’s oft quoted book title (search) so as to emphasize the novel 21st century premise upon which this resource site and review is based. His perceptive recommendation engages both western and eastern traditions which could lately be seen as a global hemispheric, bicameral sapiensphere. In respect, this major emergent evolutionary transition in personsphere individuality might then be appreciated as learning and gaining knowledge by her/his own self. This radical shift to an EarthWise visionary comprehension is the explanatory source for the Natural Genesis annotated anthology website content. A new July 2021 book An Internet in Your Head: A New Paradigm for How the Brain Works by Daniel Graham makes the best personal and global neuroscience case to date for this EartHuman acumen.
The Other Half of the UniVerse: A WumanWise Ecosmos
As another feature and rationale, we first note, as well known, that the past centuries and millennia have been very patriarchal, left brain biased, hyper-violent, destructive. Scientific and philosophic endeavors were for men only, see works by Jessica Riskin, David Orrell, and A. C. Grayling. At this outset, a new, inclusive name for homo humanity might help so we propose wuman and wumanity by changing one letter. By such an historic corrective, we may consider an animate, conducive Ecosmos procreation which is spontaneously fertile, genetically encoded, profusely sown with ovular-like bioworlds. By this feminine, maternal witness, life’s long evolution can be realized as an actual developmental gestation, quite at its geonatal term.
To put into practice, a worldwise bicameral brain/mind capability is an implied throughout. This original 17th century, one culture, integral vista needs to be availed by turns so to join left hemisphere fine particulate focus with right side holistic imagery by way of a bigender unity. A WumanWise mindfulness may thus be able to perceive a greater genesis with an incarnate content and meaning. Another apt phrase might be Sophia Sapiens, and maybe a Mellows complement could be added to Fellows. This vital awareness, anima and animus in concert, is a critical distinction. By virtue of a whole, left + right, global erudition, if a western fixation on separate Pieces and eastern views of connective Patterns can be joined into an integral, binocular vision, they could reveal a natural genesis.
A Phenomenal Yesphere Presence
Still another whole global benefit is an ability to perceive that an encompassing Ecosmos to Earthuman abidance which can have an independent, law-abiding, identity and existence of its own. By way of its temporal unfoldment, an emergent, procreative process of being and becoming then appears to be going on by itself. But a major impediment today is that a mostly male science seems to be cognitively unable to admit, imagine, and consider such an actual presence of a uniVerse to wumanVerse genesis. This vital possibility is inconceivable and ruled out. At this late, imperiled hour, might an emergent “Earthuman Phenomenon” allow and appreciate? In respect, we might dub a wumanwise Yesphere perspective which can allow and envision.
Universality: One Complementary Genome Code
As documented in Chapter IV and throughout, a premier discovery and articulation is an actual Ecosmomic genetic code. As a result, an exemplary recurrence is now proven in place from quantum realms to neural connectomes, metabolomes, microbial films, animal groupings, literary writings and onto fractal galaxies. Thus the goal of a self-similar universality is at last fulfilled. If each particle + wave, node + link, bird + flock, reciprocal correspondence is akin to a genetic (DNA + AND) phase, then all other occasions will be genomic in kind. See also the Chap. IV entry herein for more about life’s self-organized, critically poised, sweet spot. Its organic presence could then inform a natural “Genocracy” of complementary (gender) archetypes. (The 2020 module will go onto evince and embellish the presence and importance of this discovery.)
An Earthmost Significance
With regard to our ecosmic revolution, a prior materialist view cites a “Copernican mediocracy” whereof our home bioplanet does not have any special place in, or relation to, its pointless sterility. But by virtue of a procreative genesis uniVerse, an unexpected reprieve and grand option is beginning to dawn. Our EarthVerse evolutionary emergence to a reflective global sapience seems to be the result of a rarest, good fortune confluence of some 15 to 20 check points across galactic, solar system, geochemical, and further aspects. Might our minute, fraught bioworld yet actually be one in a quintillion candidates to reach this singular moment? We valiant beings might altogether have an opportunity to be the fittest, optimum Greatest Earth, if we can come to our collective senses in time.
A Triple 21st Century Ecosmos, EarthOva and EartHuman Revolution
By way of these several collaborative advances, a triple revision about our personal, planetary and uniVersal abidance is well underway. An actual macroecosmic genesis which innately gives rise to our home bioworld and microcosmic human selves in community is just coming to its 2020s fruition. This module is thus sorted into three celestial, global and individual/societal stages and aspects.
A Procreative Ecosmos In this regard, our Natural Genesis site, by virtue of its worldwise source, is now able to identify, report and evidentially certify the actual presence of an animate, habitable, genetically encoded, familial fertility. But as such revolutions occur (Thomas Kuhn), this has not happened yet because an olden sterile, materialist, mechanical, accident scheme exists alongside the new participatory uniVerse to EarthVerse (Ecopernican) reality. As we note, a difference this time is that the epic advance is not due to one person (man), but to altogether to an integral Earthuman sapience.
Earth Front and Center As a result our own eminently habitable bioworld returns to a unique place and purpose. We first note that life’s evolutionary developmental course is lately becoming understood as an oriented, quickening, personified gestation. As the next essay section will enter, it may have just reached a geonatal term. We then refer to the Earthropic Principle and EarthOva 2021 sections (VIII. C & D) which reports an especial Gaia alive, Earthmost, self-chosen distinction with a cocreative significance and awesome destiny.
Human/Wuman Beings Moving on to our own identity, an apt referral to traditional wisdom is a Chinese “anthropocosmic” vision which also held to a triune unity of “heaven, Earth and humanity” (Tu Weiming). At this late advent of an EarthWise revelation about a truly numinous, textual, fecund nature, an expansive sense of individual persons in community can likewise accrue. At once you are yourself, but now as an intended phenomenal participant, each one of us are iconic, self-similar microcosms with all that would imply, anoint and empower.
The 2020s EarthWise Book of Naturome
A metaphoric “second” volume which would provide numinous edification about this worldly creation was often anticipated. But rather than given from above, it would be achieved by way of our own inquiry, observance, literate theory, experiment and cumulative record. The concept is traceable to Aristotle and Augustine, and to Galileo who wrote famously wrote in 1623, Philosophy is written in that great book which ever is before our eyes but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language in which it is written. The concept was a main basis for the 17th century scientific revolution, but became set aside in the later 1800s as extant realms seemed to be more as an inanimate, mechanical spacescape and contingent evolutionary duration. REPOST
But a narrative metaphor befits a 21st century cocreative organic uniVerse. As this early 2020s philoSophia review proceeds it will describe a fertile, procreative genesis which is found to be deeply graced and informed by a textual, genetic essence. As the Organisms Evolve Rhythmic Protolanguage section (Chap. VI. C. 4) documents, learning to mark, inscribe, communicate and gain a natural literacy appears to be an evolutionary requisite. See for example Reading, That Strange and Uniquely Human Thing by Lydia Wilson in Nautilus (Issue 35, 2020), and Rediet Abede’s contribution herein about mutual prosody and prose modes. And as Deep Affinity of Genomes and Languages (IV. B. 2) reports, a cross-translation between these prime phases has been affirmed. Here some mid 2021 affirmations from the global literature (search).
Sandford, Emily, et al. On Planetary Systems as Ordered Sequences. arXiv:2105.09966. Astrophysicists ES, Cavendish Laboratory, UK, David Kipping, Columbia University and computer scientist Michael Collins, Columbia U. post a current survey of myriad exoworlds being detected across the galaxy. It is suggested that whole solar arrays seem to form a unitary geometric and mathematic network. They then apply computational linguistics via natural language processing as a way to identify a deep textual quality.

Penn State linguists describe how connective complexities in effect across which every natural realm also provide structural topologies our languages and literatures.
GeoNativity: A 1990 - 2020 – 2050 Parturient Planet
As the Genesis Evolutionary Synthesis chapter notes, life’s developmental emergence has increasingly gained an appearance as an oriented gestation. By this view, our present Earthuman global transition could well have reached an actual "Geonate" term. A lady scholar once wrote This would be obvious to any woman. But how can this be if the whole world is beset by viral pestilence, dictators, genocides, refugees, weaponry, heat domes. By such a perception, a 1990 to 2050 span would occur over a “parturient” planet (in labor about to give birth). Its 2020 midpoint may be akin to the moment when each fetus needs to awaken from a long dream sleep to their personal self-consciousness.
As readers are aware, the “apocalypse” word is often invoked in these times. But its historic meaning from Greece was more about a beneficial transformation by way of a concurrent revelation rather than a destructive end. In this respect, our EarthWise website edition is offered as a semblance of a second “Book of Naturome” written in an ecosmomic to geonomic code-script. An alternative, PediaKinder futurity could then be envisioned, for example, as composed of metabolic networks of egalitarian, tolerant, peaceable ecovillages, a creative unity of person, community and a viable planet, indeed a Ubuntu UniVerse.
And it seems necessary to cite a common denominator for the many perils and travails, because only men are involved, whose “mandemic” (gundemic, wardemic), continues to rule and rage, while women are silenced, brutalized, enshrouded. Male academics take to writing books with Doom in their title. An easy corrective could be the word “wuman” so to include both halves of a famiiial ecosmos procreativity within a true Wumanity. This vital resolve could be the most important, but also the most difficult, mediation.
A 1990s Participatory, Bit to It, UniVersion
By virtue of the 2020s revolutionary EarthWise edition being surveyed here, we wish to enter this current scenario (Philip Ball 2018) so to begin overall considerations about a potential Ecosmos to Earthmost narrative outline and significance. In general regard, this working model broadly views sentient, Earthuman-like, beings as having a vital importance to an entire astronomic existence and future fate. In its physics form (see outline section and Quantum Organics), a temporal course runs from original particles, waves and information (bit) all the long, evolutionary, encoded way to its momentary aware, retrospective observation (it), which may be quite underway here. In accord with J. A. Wheeler’s original 1990s conception, such a recorded acknowledgement is inherently necessary so to bring the whole universe into full reality.
We are presently viewing how this possibility could assimilate and accord with a revolutionary ecosmos genesis reality. In regard, the long, contingent EcosmosVerse to EarthVerse trajectory occurs, involves and is distinguished by a passage from an initial “Biteracy” generative source (see Glossary) to an “Iteracy” mode via an eventual sentient speciesphere. As the website documents, such an immaterial, mathematic code-script proceeds along the way to spontaneously exemplify its complementary form. By this glimpse, an Ecosmomic scriptome “in-forms” and arises with life’s developmental evolution on habitable bioworlds. On a relatively fittest abode as our Gaia bioworld, it may reach a nested, worldwise progeny able to decipher, recognize, affirm its future continuance. From 2020, an additional contribution could now be an intentional achievement of a sustainable future continuance.
We next cite a timely, apropos June 2021 work, The Ascent of Information, by the Columbia University astrobiologist Caleb Scharf (search) which provides his update upon a participatory universe. Some 30 years on, the extant, temporal cosmos is distinguished by dual phases of overt physical features, and an immaterial program-like source. A developmental course is indeed traced from a Bit origin through life’s evolution to a late global literary sapience, our It reception. A novel, insightful advance then considers this emergent trajectory to have relative phenotype and genotype-like aspects. Scharf thus moves beyond algorithmic terms and gives this informative vector a “dataome” name. But while this contribution is well defined by a generative code quality, it is not meant to pass onto human agency and intent, see the book review for more.
A Second Liferacy Singularity In regard, we here enter a preview of what our nascent sapiensphere cognizance may be finding, which will be viewed more in the 2020 – 2030 - 2040 module. In some real sense we learned Earthumans an aware bioplanet can aspire to be the “It” (iteracy, fiteracy) recipients of the whole ecoVersion, informomic endowment. A vital point thus seems to be a realization that its code-script is actually genetic in kind. So we have dubbed a novel “Liferacy” word for a collective ability to learn, decipher, read, and write, so to carry forth into a new intentional genesis.
At this outset, we are trying to express the considerable opportunity of coming upon a whole uniVerse explanatory scenario with a place and purpose for our especial Earthling observant, cocreative presence. (But as a caveat, we are not trying to put a face on it, nor make excuses.) Another factor may then be involved. If to consider, it seems that any such optimum planetary (geonate) issue needs to be able to figure all this out for themselves, by their own decisive initiative. (This may be the “Great Filter” requirement.) In order to ground, orient and cover many aspects, we continue with a 2022 capsule review of website Chapters and sections.
Chapter I: A Natural Genesis 2020 Vision: A Woman’s Ecosmos Wisdome
This initial overview surveys the many findings, revisions and syntheses as our nascent EarthKinder may commence to learn all about and percieve a revolutionary discovery of an organic procreative UniVerse. It opens with Homo to Anthropo Sapiens: Historic Prescience which harks back to Greece and China and onto 19th and 20th century intimations of an encoded, self-organizing vitality. A broadly inclusive section, Earthomo to Ecosmo Sapiensphere: Global Glimpses, then offers some 265 references as an in-process documentation of its advance and fulfillment. Into the 21st century, this grand achievement can newly be attributed to a further major global evolutionary transition. As a consequence, an emergent personal sapiensphere can be seen as coming to her/his own phenomenal knowledge.
Our chapter title conveys some prime signifiers about its occasion and content. As explained herein and throughout, Natural Genesis is meant to represent a radical alternative to an olden natural selection only which relegates life and people to an accidental contingency. As online in the early 2000s, the website content now spreads over eight chapters, 85 subject sections and 8,500 entries. By circa 2020 a visionary evidential veracity seems to have been attained. As not much sooner, a sufficient depth and breadth across every realm from quantum phenomena to galactic clusters, microbes to a metropolis, has been robustly filled in and fleshed out.
But a most significant distinction could be an attribution to a profoundly different kind of cerebral faculty. While the prior centuries of science (Jessica Riskin) and philosophy (A. C. Grayling) have been totally male (left brain) in particulate nature and reductive practice, an ascendant individuality would be graced by a feminine bicameral, right/left whole brain facility. By this view, our EarthWise (Sophia) sapiensphere takes on an essential semblance to a visionary mindfulness able to witness, discover, and sustain. Thus a novel ecological cosmos, a woman’s ecosmos, becomes a reality. A “wisdome” word is added to designate that its complementary, me + We = US, guidance would be genetic in textual kind.
Chapter II. Earth Learn: A Planetary Progeny Comes to Her/His Own Knowledge
This second Chapter currently posts a 2021 retrospective of how our erudite Earth appears to be engaged in a long, collectively intelligent process (David Christian) of gaining knowledge about every aspect of this (awesome and awful) abidance whence we find ourselves. It really does take on a guise of an “autodidactic” universe, but by way of these microcosmic biosphere to noosphere phases. Via our 21st century vantage, an emergent evolutionary transition to a personal sapiensphere seems much in occurrence.
As its outline cites, indigenous encounters first glimpsed an integral, animate, mythic, mystic presence, as if by some initial holistic right brain (as every person does). The luminous endowment of a familial anthropocosmic code, as Taoist teachings evoke, was sensed early on. This feature has remained a perennial quest which may at last be fulfilled. By turns, The Spiral of Science records a later, male, left brain mid-millennia revolution to find, identify, and catalog every particulate atom, molecule, nucleotide, neuron, microbe and object. But an integral notice of an overall scheme was lost and abandoned in deep stochastic space and time.
Global Genius: A Worldwise Mindkinder brings us to today when an Earthropo Sapience is busy putting a true biological reality back together by way of adding systemic network connections between all the many pieces. In regard, we next post a capsule summary of intelligent EarthWise qualities and accomplishments. As readers know, the past two decades have gone from little online website content to all manner of books and journals. In 2005 I had to go to Yale and MIT to find paper books and a working copier. Today, every publication is available online with increasing open, free access.
2020/2021: This numerical event is notable not only for clear binocular vision, but for the perilous litany that could overwhelm us. In addition however, it is also a unique moment when our cumulative learning project, via millions of contributors and publications, seems to have reached a wide and deep evidential sufficiency. That is to say, as not earlier, their composite occasion can robustly verify and prove an animate, wholly recurrent, naturally encoded, familial ecosmos, to be fleshed out in the Ecosmo section.
Personsphere: Our guiding premise has been that a further emergent evolutionary transition to a relative super-organic, cognizant individuality is much underway. But as a caveat, we do not mean a homogenous globalization. Rather, as the Sustainable Ecovillages section conveys, and we cite later on, a next fortuitous phase could be composed of many freely creative protocellular communities in near and far symbiotic, communicative webworks.
Sapiensphere: Its leading manifestation in our daily lives is an apparent worldwise brain/mind capacity which could lately be seen as learning on her/his own. This global faculty could also be seen to form a new realm of knowledge as an accessible online, billion website facility. As a result, it can provide a novel informative, accumulated resource whose content can hence forth be availed to change and begin a much better world.
Natural PhiloSophia: This 17th century, one culture, science + philosophy integral vista ought to be activated again so to join a (male) left hemisphere fine focus with (feminine) right side holistic imagery. Altogether such WumanWise bicameral planetary mindfulness will be able to perceive an incarnate content and meaning, a woman’s wisdome. (Another phrase could conceivably be identified as Sophia Sapiens.)
A Phenomenal Presence: Another whole brain benefit is that an encompassing Ecosmos to Earthuman abidance of which we find ourselves can be seen to have a its own independent, lawful, fertile identity and self-existence of its own. By way of its temporal unfoldment, an emergent, procreative process of being and becoming appears to be well going on by itself. This philsSophia perception is not a fine point. A main impediment today is that men are cognitively incapable of admitting a greater genesis of which uniVerse and wumanVerse are an exemplary result.
A Thinking, Learning Planet At this point, we might illustrate how a worldwise sapience can be seen as coming to her/his own knowledge and discovery. One entry could be the Natural Genesis Journal Resources section with over 200 periodicals which are surveyed on a regular basis. As researchers iteratively peruse and contribution, unbeknownst until now, their composite content could be appreciated as taking on a cognitive cast of its own. The science eprint site arXiv.org posts thousands of papers from Astrophysics to Biology each day which also implies a self-learning process. Many entries such as Hidden Depths in the Local Universe: The Stellar Stream Legacy Survey (2104.06071) and Ariel: Enabling Planetary Science Across Light-Years (2104.04824) have dozens or hundreds of coauthors as an Earthuman acumen performs its vital, ordained role of quantifying an Ecosmic breadth and depth.
The Spiral of Science goes on to post papers which about a collective intelligence such as The Network Structure of Scientific Revolutions (2010.08381), Machine Learning Meets Quantum Physics (Springer, 2020), Superminds by Thomas Malone, and The Wisdom of the Network (1805.04766). The April science news cites new properties for subatomic muons (Physics Review Letters, 126/141801) by a large international team. By our natural philoSophia view, why is it that we micro/macro entities are able to do this at all. Might the big idea be that such a self co-creative reality not only requires its own descriptive record, but in some way is trying to pass on its operating (wo)manual, aka genetic endowment, going forward to whomever smartsphere can evolve far enough to figure this out by themselves.
Global Genius In this context and respect, our website endeavor seeks to identify the historic advent of a collective, accessible, online digital text and analog image worldwise eLibrary of eEarthica. These title words, for example, is from Andrew Rifkin, a NY Times environmentalist who coined it in Exploring the Roots of an Emerging-Planet Spanning ‘Mind,’ from an original citation by Pierre Teilhard. Into 2021 we want to call attention to its enveloping Q & A cerebral capacity with its own limitless memory store. Earthuman sapiens seeks to emphasize its interactive person and planetary basis. As elections ever split in half, nations hack and attack, how might such a smartsphere be admitted and availed so to reach palliative, beneficial solutions?
Chapter III. Ecosmos: A Revolutionary Organic Habitable UniVerse
From our late spherical vantage, the 20th century could be viewed as an exploratory, theoretic, and experimental quantification of dual atomic depth and cosmic breadth infinities, which have lately joined facets and forces as a quantum cosmology. The past 20 years could then be seen as a realization of an actual third infinity of its animate, bioplanet essence and evolutionary life-bearing connectomic course. This achievement is much due to a vivifying, integral network reconnection of all the separate object pieces. Thus a grand reunification into an evident natural self-organizing ecosmic genesis is proceeding to be fleshed out. Altogether a global collective intelligence becomes able to self-reveal, discover, and selectively choose. We next post a survey of prime advances and vistas.
Moon to Multiverse Into the 2020s, Earthomo sapiens will mark some 400 years since Galileo’s first 1620’s telescope. In his day, the Copernican heliocentric view was hardly known and in dispute. Circa 1900, our solar system remained at the center of a starry cosmos. Galaxies were not observed until the 1930s, a point of singular origin by 1965. Theoretical thought about other universes began in the 1990s, see ExoUniverse Studies. Today, maybe as a global Galileo (also a Gloria), our long quest to explore and figure out has become a worldwise collaboration. Some four centuries later, our environmental vista has expanded to myriad unitary, variant exo-cosmoses.
And to reflect, how fantastic is it that we incipient, curious Earthlings in a few years and decades can be able to explore and learn such atomic and astronomic infinities? A typical paper could be Galactic Orbital Effects on Pulsar Timing (arXiv:2103.q5314). Who are we all to explore and quantify such reaches? What could be a reason and purpose for this inherent ordained ability ever be? In some sense, individual persons in community can gain a second identity as functional, intelligent agencies of an ecosmic self-description, literary decipherment, decisive affirmation and celestial destiny. In this 2021 view, a whole uniVerse can be newly understood to have a distinct, overall identity.
As we continue to scan and report what a worldwise Learning Planet may be coming upon, a certain panorama whence microcosmic Earthlings indeed have a central relevance to a genesis macrocosm continues to gain evident validity. An April arXiv eprint paper, The Edges of the Universe by Toby Ord (2104.01191), is an example of collaborative human abilities which can quantify and describe this entire trillion galaxy expanse. Why then can a minute sentient ovoglobe be able to achieve such infinite knowledge? Another entry, The Autodidactic Universe (2104.03902) with Lee Smolin as lead theorist, considers a (e)cosmic creativity which seems engaged in its own self-education, description and informative revelation.
A Profusion of Planets: A premier 21st century astronomic finding and ecosmic addition is a natural propensity to form all various manner of orbital objects in incubator-like solar systems. A middle, conducive area may then form a habitable band wherein Gaian biospheric candidates can give rise over eons and eras to life, mind, persons, and symbiotic familial unities potentially on the way to a planetary progeny. See III. I: ExoPlanets, Solar Systems, Habitable Zones, Biosignature Census for reports about this discovery especially into 2010s.
An Organic Ecosmos: Rather than a sterile, particulate dross, material substance has now become well quantified and understood to possess an inherent self-organizing, complex, replicative, networked fertility. By these composite findings, natural matter appears to be suffused by animate propensities so that living systems seem to be contained within its essence as if a rose in a seed and a robin in an egg. Over billion year time spans, an intrinsic development proceeds to form intricate and appropriate biochemical precursors for life’s evolutionary quickening emergence on its transitional way to an observant sapience. One might qualify all the way from microbes to a metropolis, as Geoffrey West’s Scale 2017 book advises.
A further perception and benefit may accrue. It has been noted, maybe akin to how Gaian life sustaining forces have taken hold on our Earth (see above), with life so deeply written into the operative (physical, intelligent) equations, the same phenomenal process may be unfolding even on a universal scale, see e.g., Caleb Scharf’s 2016 paper herein. That is to say, might we be coming upon a vital reality as far from an old mechanical morbidity as it could be? For this reason, an Ecosmos identity is suggested to convey its dynamic ecological nature. Please see Chapter III. H: An Astrochemistry to Astrobiological Fertility and throughout for many references.
Earth Alive: A Bio-Eco-Ovo Sphere Sustains Her/His Self This title section (III. A. 2) conveys how our home planetary abide his gained these special, unique vital qualities. The Gaia self-regulating model from James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis has now been well quantified as the global systems science paradigm. But the point we want to make is that, akin to a phenomenal Ecosmos, an Earth candidate such as our own can also be appreciated to have a distinct, significant identity. In April 2021 as climate mitigation becomes a prime public concern, our unified wumankinder contribution would be to commence an intentional, respectful, ecological self-stabilization for ages of children to come.
Quantum Organics We coined this phrase to represent an array of radically new 2000 to 2020 worldwise understandings of nature’s basic phenomenal realm, which indeed has been dubbed a “second quantum revolution.” Mostly unawares, this deepest “physical” phase been found to be distinguished by the same complex network dynamic systems as everywhere else. In regard, it is equally treatable by deep neural learning methods, which are leading to many applications. For an example, Oxford University computer scientist Bob Coecke and colleagues are proceeding to study linguistic, compositional, Rosetta-like features, which quite infer an innate textual essence.
An Information Computation Turn Another shift in scientific emphasis, from John Wheeler forward into the 2010s, has been an affirmation, after space-time and matter-energy, of a primary informative, code-like content. Prime volumes noted in this section such as From Matter to Life: Information and Causality edited by Sara Walker, et al and Why Information Grows by Cesar Hidalgo convey this vivifying addition. In further regard, as well known many algorithmic versions, broadly conceived, which allude to natural computations also make insightful contribution to a programmic narrative. This approach can be traced to Gottfried Liebniz and Alan Turing, and lately to Stephen Wolfram, Gregory Chaitin, David Deutsch and Susan Stepney.
Systems Cosmology: Fractal SpaceTimeMatter The realms of “physical” matter across spatial expanses of celestial raiment, along with a temporal vector of their evolution, are now known to display the same nonlinear, self-similar complex organization as everywhere else. When this section was first posted in the early 2000s, only rare, spurious inklings of intrinsic self-similarities and self-organizing topological dynamics could be found. Two decades later, a pervasive structuration and activity has been well quantified across galactic cluster, interstellar medium, stellar coronae and more onto elemental atomic and material phases. The once formless, sterile, forbidding void can presently evince another robust instance of the one, same exemplary code. Here is still another way that an encompassing ecosmos of infinite procreative invariance is gaining its own anatomy and physiology. For a recent report see We next cite another 2021 documentary instance. De Marzo, Giordano, et al. Zipf’s Law for Cosmic Structures. by Giordano De Marzo, et al at arXiv:2105:06110.
Universal Evolution: One more recent, relevant aspect needs to be factored in. A certain selective process appears to be in effect even across planetary, solar, galactic, and onto exoCosmos realms, see III. A. 4 Universal Evolution for citations. A generic (computation-like) procedure seems to cast a range of variant candidates which are then subject to external winnowings on an astronomic scale. Broadly conceived, this modus opens to inquiries about what property or quality could appear to be optimally favored. However, a positive 2020s countermand would be the natural presence of a self-making, autopoietic, self-organizing spontaneity so to provide an oriented, informative force. See III.E. 2 An Autocatalytic, Bootstrap EcosmoVerse and throughout.
Chapter IV. Ecosmomics: A Survey of Genomic Complex Network System Sources
After Chapter 3: Ecosmos which enters many overt aspects of a newly evident organic, self-organizing, developmental genesis milieu, this multipart Chapter 4 gathers and reports upon an equally present immaterial, mathematic, code-script generative source. The main extensive text is all about the occasion of novel Complex Network System approaches and schools of study. We follow with further aspects such as Network Physics, algorithmic computation, a literary context, and just now to attain a robust proof of a constant, universal recurrence in kind.
With all this in place, the Our Own HumanVerse Genome Studies section goes on to cite and describe their formative identity as an actual genetic basis for emergent life. Altogether, this central chapter well evinces the intrinsic presence of a natural genetic code. These modules here will go on to report premier 2020 discoveries of its archetypal bigender, familial commonality which, we suggest, can provide the phenomenal, geonome-like guidance going forward that we presently do not have.
An Ecosmomic Code: As a consequent feature, we can now enter a premier realization of our EarthWise comprehension. As the long Chapter IV documents, since the 1990s a new phase of nonlinear complex network sciences, along with algorithmic computation have studied and confirmed the presence of an independent mathematic, generative domain which infuses and informs akin to genotype and phenotype. While early work was spread over many facets, the original incentive (as through history) was to uncover one, inscribed source in similar, exemplary effect at each and every stage and instance. As these efforts have clarified and converged into the later 2010s to an integral synthesis, this informative basis has arrived at a genomic context, whose essential qualities we survey next. We note Cauliflower Fractal Forms Arise from Perturbations of Floral Gene Networks. by Eugenio Azpeitia, et al in Science. (373/192, 2021).
One Naturome Code with Two Distinctive Phases An abstract phrase for these dynamic agencies has been self-organizing complex adaptive network systems. A salient finding is that they are composed of dual elements or modes with isolate dot, node, entity or connective, edge/link, group aspects. In every quanta to persona to astra realm, this immaterial phase is distinguished by both discrete digital, node, DNA, entity parts and holistic wave, relational, analog, AND, group relations.
Complementarity: A further vital insight is that these particle + wave, node + link, DNA + AND, neuron + axon, member + interaction, masculine + feminine constitute and represent archetypal identities and principles which occur as mutually reciprocal, coincident opposites. (AND = gene regulatory networks)
Triality: We adopt this word for an integral composite which these iconic and biconic interactive pairs proceed to form so as to make up an enclosed, proto-cellular unity. We can now enter particle + wave = Light, node + link = Network, DNA + AND = Genome, right + left hemisphere = Bicameral brain, member + interactivity = Flock, pod, herd, clan, community. This trionic view can convey nature’s proclivity for diverse but beneficial joinings, aka creative union, at each place and time. This beneficial quality is becoming known as an evolutionary “symbiogenesis” (see VI. B. 4, and further herein) in similar effect from starfish colonies to stellar clusterings.
Universality: As the full website expresses, this newly appreciated ecosmomic tripartite code has been found to be in manifest, iterative, overt recurrence from a fractal spacescape to bicameral civilizations. Please see Universality Affirmation (search Alexandria 2019) and throughout for much more. Also known as scale invariance, self-similarity, commonality, the occasion is a historic fulfillment of the epic quest to find a wholly consistent sign and image in kind.
An Optimum, Middle Way, Attractor Poise: This dynamic liveliness has lately been found to display a functional tendency to seek and reside at a best balance between distinct but coincident, more or less orderly, incoherent and/or coherent states. This vital preference thus becomes a golden mean “sweet spot” (D. Chialvo) confluence of both “right and left,” stability and change, entity and empathy, which are ultimately gender modes, at the same time. Although not with reference to this scientific basis, a good public expression is Rule Makers, Rule Breakers; How Tight and Loose Cultures Wire Our World by the psychologist Michele Gelfand (search, see also MG articles) whence all manner of societal activities are seen to take on these polar phases and work best at a dynamic balance in between.
A Real Discovery of a Ecosmomic to Geonomic Code After these several affine features, a vital witness can be entered. With a universal, exemplary recurrence in phenomenal evidence from quantum realms to genomes, neural connectomes, metabolomes, animal groupings, literary writings and onto fractal galaxies, a consistent self-similarity becomes quite evident. If each DNA + AND (GRN), node + link, bird + flock complementary correspondence is necessarily akin to its genetic phase, then all other occasions can likewise be appreciated as genomic in natural kind. By virtue of this epic achievement by our Earthuman acumen, we propose that an actual discovery about this fantastic existence might just now be possible, which is wondered about later on.
V. Life's Evolutionary Development Organizes Itself: A 2020s Genesis Synthesis
With a revolutionary organic, procreative ecosmos spacescape and its natural genomic code in place, the outline and essay can move on to life’s consequent developmental evolution on habitable, conducive bioworlds. This present Earth is so far a premier instance for having engendered and brought forth our consummate personsphere sapience as it presently achieves its own, necessary edifying retrospective. A further historic revision can then accrue as this contingent, vicarious, episodic but ultimately oriented course again takes on a guise of an embryonic to a quickening gestation. By virtue of many expansions and added features noted next and in this chapter with 350 entries, a radical genesis evolutionary synthesis, possibly at geonatal term, is here proposed.
Many years have passed since 1859 and the 1950s modern, neoDarwinian version. This Chapter V opens with a litany of some 23 findings, properties, and qualities which altogether flesh out and enlighten the developmental procession. In regard, the most significant contribution is an informative, ecosmomic code script in self-organizing effect everywhere. Other salient features, for example, are a self-similar major transitions scale, cooperative, symbiotic groupings, concerted and mosaic neural ramifications, intelligent, proactive behaviors, a deep, convergent homology (nature repeats the same pattern and processes over and again), which are formed and joined by modular networks, and so on. (In this advance, and in accord with the essay point we are trying to make, might we take license and dub a Charlotte and Charles EarthWin attribution.)
For a certain example, the April 2021 issue of Interface Focus is Interdisciplinary Approaches to Dynamics in Biology so to report how a robust reconception of life’s emergent progress has been attained and quantified by way of the complex network sciences. Via our philoSophia view, papers such as Homology of Process, and Time and Space in Segmentation describe common forms and trends which persist in kind across the long creaturely course (as the whole site attests, from microbes to a metropolis). Going forward we will continue to identify its verification in the composite literature. As we log in, a June 202i issue How does Epigenetics Influences the Course of Evolution appears in the Philosophical Transaction of the Royal Society B (Isaac Newton’s journal from the mid 17th century). We next cite new notice and appreciations of symbiotic unions.
Major Evolutionary Transitions Scale A good instance of an historic paradigm shift ready to happen is when two models coexist side by side. As this section discusses, since its 1995 advent the perception of an episodic, nested repetition of diverse complex wholes within wholes so to form personal beings at each level has become a central tenet. But its teleological cast is at total odds with an aimless mutate and select fixation. But we see in this essay and site how it provides an axial arrangement which seems augured for our late fulfillment. For example see Did Human Culture Emerge in a Cultural Evolutionary Transition in Individuality? by Dinak Davison, et al in Biological Theory. December, 2021.
Systems Network Biology and Genetics Since the 2001 human genome sequence, a broad movement has sought to quantify and involve the equally real regulatory and vivifying connectivities between the biomolecular nucleotides. Recent endeavors factor in multiplex network topologies and involve deep neural learning methods. As the 130 sample references convey, an international effort aided by online advances in technique and computation is well on the way to an integral understanding of 3D and 4D organismic epi/genomes and metabolomes.
Deep Homology A salient property, for example, has become known by this title whence many skeletal soma and cerebral capacities can be traced in kind back to their earliest rudimentary occasion, just as an embryo and fetus develops by concerted and mosaic (modular) ramifications from its initial forms. A good example is a constant enhancement of asymmetric bicameral brain asymmetries all the way from first invertebrates through the Metazoan animal kingdoms to our Earthuman selves, as the section (VI. C. 2) documents.
An Evolutionary Intelligence Arise Another appreciation arose in the mid 2010s that life’s central course seems to be defined by complex cerebral anatomies as they become engaged in a cumulative learning process. Due to Richard Watson, Eors Szathmary (also cofounder of the MET scale) and many others, it shifts from a prior emphasis on fossil skeletons to this cognative, behavioral, informative aspect. Another vectorial attribute can thus be traced as a relative accumulated memory may grow, teach and foster a recorded literacy.
Symbiogenesis For our 2021 leading edgy essay, we note that this composite word is increasingly entered in the literature to represent a general triality (see above) whence diverse components (bacteria, starlings, peoples) benefit from mutual aid, sharing, labors, reciprocities so to form a third whole unitary identity (cell, flock, group, community). The nested recurrence of this compartmental tight/loose pattern and process is then found to engender and distinguish all manner of evolutionary progressions and organismic development.
Chapter VI. Earth Life Emergence: Development of Body, Brain, Selves and Societies
With a uniVersal genesis, an ecosmomic bigender code, and an evolutionary gestation now posted, this next extensive chapter aims to fill in a wide array of specific scales and case studies. It opens with A Further Report of Common Principles by way of eclectic examples, since this edition is meant to show how the same complementary and triune format is exemplified and epitomized in each and every phase. Nested Gestation of Communal Creatures then courses through life’s billion year habitations from mineral substrates (R. Hazen) onto appropriate, intricate biochemicals, vast bacterial colonies, resultant eukaryotic cells, myriad fauna and flora, their viable groupings toward mammalian, primate, hominid, onto we human beings and just now an Earthomo issue whom altogether can look back in amazement.
As a thousand annotated references herein convey, an invariant tripartite repetition in kind is necessarily in strong evidence. A Quickening Encephalization and Sensibility next surveys a vectorial increase in cerebral form and cognizance, a constant bicameral brain, how intelligent and resourceful all manner of entities are both individually and in unison, and how organisms proceed evolve rhythmic, effective protolanguages. Indeed, a persistent creaturely endeavor by way of dance and song, prosodic poetry and narrative prose is to gain relative communication abilities and accumulate a store of shared cultural lore. The chapter concludes with An Enhancement of Autonomous Individuality, and Universal Gestation: Phylogeny and Ontogeny. Again, as of course must be the case just as in our own lives, the one same genetic endowment provides its proscriptive self-organization. For typical instances see Organizing Principles for Vegetation Dynamics. by Oskar Franklin, et al in Nature Plants. (6/5, 2020),and Ibarra, Jose, et al. Nurturing Resilient Forest Biodiversity: Nest Webs as Complex Adaptive Systems. by Jose Iberra,t al in Ecology and Society. (25/2, 2020) in Dynamic Ecosystems.
Chapter VII. Our Earthuman Moment: An Emergent Evolutionary Transition in Individuality
This late chapter continues the ecosmos familial narrative onto our own historically manifest phenomenon. But everything changes because living, animate materiality finally reaches, attains and bursts into a modicum of its own self-conscious knowing acuity. Its present occurrence as life’s next collective global phase, whereof each nested level repeats the same symbiotic whole essence and personal identity, is arranged into similar people and planet sections. For a new reference, see Long-term Gene-culture Coevolution and the Human Evolutionary Transition. by Timothy Waring and Zachary Wood in Proceedings of the Royal Society B. May 2021.
Human/Wuman Beings: Integral Microcosmic Persons
This seven module section reports about everyone’s bodily and behavioral formative ontogeny, along with a critically self-organized cerebral cognizance as may go forth in familial, educative and social settings. From there it emphasizes a bigender brain and cognizance and the substantial presence of personal and cosmic consciousness. A prime entry is then Holf the Universe: A Woman’s Wisdome. In the past 2 decades, a revolutionary conception of what constitutes a human body, brain and identity is covered in Our Holosymbiotic Personal Selves. As many references attest, again each instance can now be seen to epitomize epitome of the one ecosmomic code.
In respect, we phenomenal peoples can become gifted with a radical new identity of universal proportions. Persons would no longer just be whom they woke up as, but are infinitely more, so as both Earthling and “Ecosmosling” at once. To follow this, each child, woman and man gains a true microcosmic place and role within in a revolutionary macrocosmic genesis. Into the 21st century and 2020s we can ascend in history from “sinners to winners.” For an example, when a girl and boy goes to school, it can be said that as they learn so does the entire creation. One could go on. Here next are some specific advances.
Systems Neuroscience: Multiplex Networks and Critical Function With some 185 entries, this large component reports how since circa 2010 by way of imaging studies in accord with innovative theories have found that multiplex connectome qualities distinguish both cerebral topologies and cognitive process. In regard, neural networks with nested layers have become a prime example of nature’s universal, genetic-like system. With this facility, neural net methods have fostered an improved brain-based Artificial Intelligence, along with a wide utility to analyze every other genesis phase from quantum to evolutionary to social commerce.
A Complementary Brain and Thought Process In a significant addition, after some half-century of intensive scrutiny our own micro-ecosmic cerebral faculty is now well proven to be distinguished by asymmetric hemispheres with bilateral archetypes of slow/fast, object/image, node/link, entity/empathy (bigender) dynamic cognizance. Writings by the British psychologist Iain McGilchrist are seen to provide a most luminous explanation. See also An Emergent Bicameral Brain for ways that this bionic faculty is rooted in a deep evolutionary continuity. For example see A Rational Reinterpretation of Dual-Process Theories. by Smitha Milli, et al in Cognition. Vol. 217, October, 2021.
Conscious Knowledge After many years and centuries of contention, this premier but immaterial quality of our aware, informed existence has now become an amenable subject of scientific investigation and confirmation. Credible integrated Information theories due to Giulio Tononi, Larissa Albantakis, Christof Koch and colleagues, along with Global Workspace models are well quantifying how our personal acumen is a regnant phenomena of an abiding natural consciousness.
Half the Universe: A Woman’s 2020 Wisdome Of crucial significance, this unit contains much evidential documentation that men and women are in actual fact not one and the same, nor have a primary/secondary status. Rather by virtue of especial feminine cognitive abilities and integrative preferences, life’s dual genders may best represent nature’s reciprocal archetypes. Men focus on particulate, nodal things, words without meaning. Women however, whose own left side has access to these details, along with a larger corpus callosum, can then cross-reference to a right holistic mode so as to visualize a meaningful, contextual image. A proper perception of such gender identities is a vital necessity if me + We = US are ever to achieve a just, wumane, sustainable future. But in December 2020, over half the world’s population are ruled by a dozen male dictators from China and Russia (hopefully no longer the USA) to Brazil, the Philippines, Belarus, North Korea and so on.
Our Holosymbiotic Selves Moving on, this module follows with still another indicative occasion of life’s common, ascendant radiation and preference for an integral, symbiotic synthesis so to ever achieve a diverse, entity member and whole composite triality as best for individual sustanencece and survival within a supportive grouping. Finally, Archetypal Psychology refers to a broadly Carl Jungian vista of a mythic, mystic sensitive wisdom whose a once and future guidance is in much need if we are ever to provide a better future for children.
EarthHuman KinderKind: A Personsphere Progeny
This double dignity chapter goes on to likewise consider an array of salient communicative, cultural, local, urban, and onto ethnic, continental, and historic phenomena. Again each area is studied so as to show how it expresses a deeper, independent, universal mathematic (algorithome) source.
A Cultural (Geonome) Code We also cite as Systems Lingusitics because, as noted widely in Iteracy: A Rosetta Ecosmos above, even our very human phase of written and spoken communicative content has been found to strongly exhibit fractal network forms and a self-organized thematic conveyance. Altogether, vitally informative personal and group messaging can be accomplished. Such a constant, manifest occasion further attests to an independent source code which seems genetic in kind. As Earth life may finally flicker into knowing sentience, our social proclivity to make cipher to alphabet markings on papyrus to paper and now through online graphic screens might achieve an ecosmic self-description and realization. We also suggest a Geonomics version for an appropriate, accompanying bigender code so to guide a middle way symbiotic society.
Complex Local to Global Network Biosocieties This is an umbrella section for many exemplary aspects of smaller and larger human habitations. The growing application of nonlinear science to the multi-faceted field of social studies has also led to a notice of a recurrent mathematical basis. Rather than one thing after another sans any deeper context, as surface events surely seem, a global vista can retrospectfully perceive how complex dynamic networked systems likewise self-organize into an exemplary, interactive shaping of groups, assemblies, settlements, villages and cities. A steady, nested scale then ranges from a few members to a metropolis. As introduced in Organic Societies earlier, bounded communities continue to form and evolve toward an organism-like cognitive coherence. As various papers report, political elections, sporting events, social media, financial commerce, to migrations, viral pandemics and even battlefield chaos, can yet be found to exhibit universal patterns and processes.
Planetary Physiosphere: Anatomics, Economics, Urbanomics Our composite societal abidances, especially in metropolitan settings, by way of material circulations, skeletal infrastructure, cognitive cultures and more now appear akin to an anatomy, metabolism and nervous system of a developing organism. As the title cites, into the 21st century human habitations from villages to cities have likewise been described as dynamic exemplars of nature’s complex, fractal, cellular, network self-organization. A consequence is that urban plannings can by guided be and proceed in an organic way, e.g., car arteries, speed limits as blood pressure, and so on, as increasingly underway.
A Complementarity of Civilizations On a planetary scale an appreciation of exemplary Complementary Civilizations, as that section (VII. B. 4) explains, could well serve. Today, news reports about harsh confrontations between the United States and Russia abound, each brandishing (nuclear) weaponry. Similarly a meeting between Chinese and American diplomats is aired as they sit at long, opposite tables as if two sides of a brain. Instead of accord they loudly dispute economic, political, and territorial issues. But if a global view is taken of nature’s genetic reciprocity in manifest effect everywhere, an Earthuman unified abidance is again graced by West and East, North and South hemispheres with their archetypal cultures.
Another benefit would be to recognize that ethnic races such as African and American in such travail, are likewise distinguished by these mutual, distinctive qualities, as II. A. 4: An Ubuntu Universe advises. A new paper, Narratives and Counternarratives on Data Sharing in Africa (arXiv:2103.01168), by Rediet Abede, a Ethiopian-American AI expert at UC Berkeley, and colleagues contends that the Global South that is graced by a different, relational culture than particulate bytes. Their essence is more about integral storytelling, drama rather than data, whereby a prosodic integrity can convey an ethical message. See also Vii. A. 5 Half the Universe: A Woman’s Wisdome for more.
Chapter VIII. Earth Earn: Our Open CoCreative Ecosmocene Destiny
With so many integral aspects being found by our special Earthomo sapience, by turns still another audacious feature can and need be identified and factored in, as several. PediaPedia sections document. The overall uniVerse (how once more amazing that we beings can imagine such things in the morning) could altogether be seen as some manner of a generative, informed self-auto-creative activity which is meant to pass on to whomever optimum, fittest planetary progeny can attain this by their own aware initiative. Into the 2020s we Earthlings, truly thinking as a planet, have gained unlimited mind over matter and energy capabilities of Ecosmic prowess and potential.
In addition to being able to quantify and learn all about quantum depths and multicosmic reaches universe, many convergent achievements augur for an ordained second “evolitionary” phase. But as a caveat, this does not portend for a technical singularity or AI computer take over. For example, see (materiality) Coming Alive by Philip Ball in Nature Reviews Physics for March 2021. The long, chancy, choosy, insensate travesty could finally end and a new cocreation by the ethical virtue and guidance of its genetic scriptome code. In other words, the world can be changed for the much better if men can ever stop fighting and women’s beneficial, empathic wisdom be allowed to endow children. (As Bishop Curry said at the royal wedding, we need love to succeed fire.) But first we have to deal with an uninformed, patriarchal, nuclear armed, climate stressed terminal state.
A. The Old World: Its Critical Life Support Condition
After this pandemic, mandemic, gundemic year, while an academic segment yet remains silent, a new resolve to face a plethora of crises is hopefully being called for and getting underway. A “let’s start all over the right way” movement is welling by virtue of a latent multi-gender, ethnic, indigenous, person/planet inclusiveness. We are not doomed as a current book title claims. By our own motive initiative we can individualy and altogether admit, recognize and mitigate climate change, end viral pestilence, foster a viable ecovilage future and more, for which better day this website offers resources.
When this section was first posted in the early 2000s, it cited a litany such as climate extremes, militarism, bogus wars, resource usage, plastics waste, energy excesses, economic corruption. Some two decades later, these perils and more have grown worse and put us in a terminal biospheric life-support condition. If not enough, a dozen or so authoritarian, barbaric, deranged dictators now rule more than half the world’s population. Current works such as The Uninhabitable Earth by David Wallace-Wells and Falter by Bill McKibben sound alarms, but see Elizabeth Kolbert’s Under a White Sky (February 2021) for pathways forward.
B. A New CoCreation: A Singular Wumane Evolitionary Advance
At a geonatal moment, as peoples become critically beset by pandemic, mandemic, gundemic and other perils, along with erratic weather extremes this dark to light age section opens herein with a brief survey and reference of open creative frontiers as they beckon. It then reports upon evidential signs of a novel participatory (biteracy to Iteracy) capacities of material, biological, social protocellular, and onto celestial ascendancies.
Mind Over Matter: Quantum, Atomic, Chemical Connectomics In the past years a strong global capability has been achieved by which to delve deeply into and wholly quantify any substantial title domain. Again by new instruments, computer prowess, better theories, collaboritive teams and more, an open frontier invites we curious, awesome Earthlings to begin a new evolutionary phase. This module conveys how heretofore “inorganic” phases have lately become increasingly animate, fertile, and arable. By a PhiloSophia view, what a fantastic scenario is just now revealing itself whence a valiant worldwise species on a fittest ovoworld might take up and over, as intended it seems, a second cocreative singularity.
Second Genesis: Emergent LifeKinder Proceeds to an Aware BioGenetic Phase While Mind/Matter above was about a conducive substantiality, this entry reviews how our Earthomo sapience is achieving similar insights and abilities to totally revise and recreate life’s arduous trial and error evolution in a medically guided and ethically respectful way. As the references report, all manner of genomic, cellular, metabolic, network anatomy and physiology can be healed and enhanced. A major breakthrough since 2012 is the editing ease of CRISPR genetics, which is daily roving its worth from hereditary to agriculture benefits. Indeed new ways to expand and rewrite nature’s genomic code might be seen as passing on this generative source to our Earthwise continuance.
Sustainable Ecovillages Moving on up, a naturome guide can advise a better, viable, cooperative way to live altogether in the world. As life began by way of whole protocellular vesicles, so this time an apt phase of lively abidance might be social protocells of nominally 100 members of all walks and ages, please see VIII. B. 4 Sustainable Ecovillages. Such a successful community has flourished for over 20 years in close by Amherst, MA. With a reduced economic burden, many folks work a few days a week or less so are freed up to get a life. No one directs or manages since everybody helps each other in a self-organizing way. Here is a good instance of “creative union,” also an ubuntu (I am because We are) equity, whereby a supportive group proceeds to empower and liberate. This novel animation could extend on with nested local, bioregion, continental, and biospheric networks so to form a healthy and hale continental and global personage. Here is the crucial shift from nuclear nations to an EarthKinder identity as planetary patriots.
A Organic Reciprocal Genocracy At this point, we consider some ways that these natural findings due to our learned Earthkinder could be availed to resolve everyday world (misinformed) political, military, social and cultural crises. I write in spring 2021 in the USA when right red and left blue factions are gridlocked in oppositional, defiant behaviors. We ought to ask why elections always divide in half. Within a Natural Genesis, an organic, bigender complementarity could well serve to heal and resolve public affairs. That is to say, can it ever dawn that bipolar Republicans and Democrats represent archetypal halves of a whole familial populace. Might a new name as a "femocracy" be appropriate? It could be as simple as me + We = US (United States) by which to achieve a bicameral, conserve and create, warrior and worrier, past/future viable polity so to provide a peaceable sustainability good the children.
A Viable Gaiasphere: An Earthropocene Unity: Planetary Patriots and Matriots After the whole resource site, this consummate section concerns how we peoples might altogether gain a sufficient understanding and motivation so as to heal, mitigate, sustain, and foster our rarest, great Earth bioabide. Herein we seek to report and document many ways that a worldwise cocreative, encoded genesis found by our Earthomo sapience could inform, inspire and guide a viable super-organic, entity/Earthling resolve. Along with ending the viral pandemic, it is said we need to embark upon to similarly vigorous scientific and public mission to admit and stabilize climate impacts. (And one ought to include a national barbaric male militarism.) In accord with Earthropic Principle next, a common initiative so to become a rare, fittest ecosmic center of future genesis ought to commence.
C. Great Earth: Our Especial Bioplanet can be the Fittest, Optimum Candidate
As these final Pedia Sapiens website sections enter, an unexpected turn of events and resolve could begin to imply a point and purpose with regard to our Earthuman participation. Within our revolutionary ecosmic theme, a prior, spatial (Ptolemaic, single sleep) model cites a “Copernican mediocracy” whereof this Earth, or any planet, does not have any unique place in its pointless sterility. But if a phenomenla genesis uniVerse can be newly understood as a reproductive procreation, a grand alternative may be in our sapiensphere midst. Life’s evolutionary emergence seems to be the result of and facilitated by a rarest, good fortune confluence of many astrological to solar-bioplanetary check-points, which are here given an extensive topical review and documentation. Might our minute, fraught bioworld, at once so beset and so precious, yet be one in some quintillion candidates which is able to reach this relative geonativity moment? An encompassing reality and presence may just now gain such an explanatory narrative. In regard, here could accrue a grand opportunity and challenge to be the fittest, optimum Greatest Earth, if we peoples especially men) can altogether come to our senses in time. Please refer to the 2020 - 2030 edition for new entries which add more restrictions
A Family Ecosmos Genesis Procreativity
To wit, we attempt to imagine and consider an apparent meaningful significance to these relative abstractions. Into these critical 2020s one might dare suggest, as based on this Natural Genesis website, that a comprehensible identity could be considered for an entire multiversal ecosmos. In regard, an ability by way of an internal human-like planetary acumen may be a vital requirement (as the participatory version alludes) to bring into ecosmome to geonome self-affirmed realization. An apt overall phrase might be “from eternity to maternity.”
As long foreseen, across the ages a perennial uniVerse to humanVerse correspondence, might indeed be qualified and confirmed. By turns, an “anthropocosmic” vision (Chap. II. A. 2) might expansively be appreciated as an Earthropo to Ecosmic version. A generative code-script, DNA/AND, bigender complementarity and whole Taoist triality has been found to suffuse and prescribe every stage and instance. A “pregnant” cosmos (Christian De Duve), an ovular-like Earth, and life’s sequential, quickening gestation at its gravid hour can well imply a maternal/paternal to son/daughter reproductive process with an ascendant genetic endowment. So in this regard, a daunting planetary and celestial surround may yet reveal an encompassing familiarity for both the whole macro-ecosmos and our micro-ecosmos iconic, bionic and triconic embodiment.
2020 – 2030: An Earthmost, Self-Discovery, Geonativity, Participatory Precestry, Decisive Decade A fittest, optimum ovoworld at her/his relative geonativity hour may just now altogether be able to discern and decode an ecosmomic to geonomic, parents to children, informative iteracy, liferacy and fiteracy endowment. Our cocreative worldwise achievement, going forward, may then serve and foster a self-chosen genesis uniVerse.
In the context of this New Introduction, the Natural Genesis resource site as attributed to a prodigious worldwise progeny, by way of a bigender philoSophia vista, an ultimate time event for both EartHuman and uniVerse can appear to be in occurrence. Its presence and import can be seen to not only involve our very especial home bioworld, but also the fate and future of the whole procreative organic ecosmos.
After the bursty Big Bang, this late occasion might be cited as a second singularity whereof a uniquely aware speciesphere, such as our EarthKinder, can be able on her/his own to achieve a retrospective observance, description, and self-realization. A consequent organic, familial character can then serve to imply a procreative purpose. As life’s evolution becomes known as an oriented gestation, this moment can actually take on a geonativity essence. But the most critical aspect might be an ability to recognize that it comes with its own genetic-like code.
By this spacescape view, an ecosmomic informational transfer, as if from parents to children, could define our vital task (great work) to decipher, read, and acknowledge such a geonomic endowment. As a way to express, a composite “Liferacy” term is dubbed so to represent an innate textual narrative. A further singular aspect would then be a respectful, concerted avail to both save and sustain this precious planet, and to begin a new pedia sapiens “second Genesis” cocreation going forward.
But Earth peoples are now so beset by multi-calamities of a variant plague, record tornados, capricious warlords, on and on. An apocalyptic despair sets in as all hope becomes lost. So these online editions are offered as a concurrent dispensation which has long been anticipated to mitigate, save and transfigure. In respect, we have sought to propose the 21st century advent of an EarthWise Book of Naturome (Global Galileo) and of a Genesis UniVerse. Here next is a survey of prime features.
A Family Ecosmos: As our evolutionary and historic course seems to reach a geonatal end or beginning of days, a once and future revelation may occur. A deep affinity between human peoples and the starry raiment has long been a prime theme, see An AnthropoCosmic Vision herein. Into a 21st century collective neosphere, by virtue of current findings of the same sweet-spot bigender network scriptomics at every extant phase (The Book of Naturome next) it may just now be valid and credible to recover and avail this essence and relationship.
EarthKinder Geonativity: Another appropriate metaphor could accrue as life’s evolution becomes known as an embryonic gestation (Chapter V). By this view might it just now reach its parturient planetary term? A view can illume more affinities, such as a vital moment when every neo-candidate must awaken (Karin Schwab, H. Larercrantz) from a dream sleep to their own decision to hatch or be borne. In an analogous way, our EartHuman thinking planet need be able to allow and attain her/his own visionary individuation.
An Earthmost, EarthOva Significance: As these final outline sections (VIII. C., D) gather and report, our speciesphere bioworld may attain an incredible, unexpected identity as a fittest, optimum, one in a quintillion, importance due to having made it through some twenty check points. As an intended result, an especial EartHuman KinderMind could achieve a global, and universal self-selection by their own free initiative. This unexpected lottery-like turn remains quite unbeknownst. As it bodes for an infinite significance for our minuet, fractious ovoWorld, its recognition could bring an incentive and mission, a dignity and destiny, that could unite fractious nations and cultures.
Ecosmonativity And far afield, if this home uniVerse (it is awesome that peoples can speak of this), we micro ecosmic Earthlings might yet have a real relevance to the fate and future of an entire macro ecosmos. And if set within a profusion of variable spatial and temporal universes as they bubble in and out of existence, then what we may decide and do could validate the whole panorama. (In 1983 at Harvard I heard Andrei Linde present this very fractal scenario.)
The vast medical, biological, genomic sciences, and every other aspect, could be appreciated as an ordained edification. By their avail, many maladies, diseases, viral plagues, social strife, ethnic wars, climate changes, can be cured, mitigated, prevented and moved beyond. By this grand view, a self-medicating, healing, resolving kind of cocreative genesis reality may appear. Thus the sudden achievement of effective vaccines draws on stored biochemical, virology, cellular, physiological insights so that peoples can help and heal themselves.
An EarthWise (Pedia Sapiens) Ecognizance
Major Evolutionary Transition in Individuality: As a historical passage from homo to anthropo to Earthropo sapiens lately occurs and converges over a gravid bioworld, a personsphere stage of this well accepted emergent quickening sequence becomes quite apparent. As we remind across the chapters and sections, the 9,000 entries can thus be attributed to this ascendant collaborative global brain sapiensphere. A strongest endorsement has been just entered as Intelligence as a Planetary Scale Process by Adam Frank, et al in the International Journal of Astrobiology for February 2022 (search).
WorldWise Sapiensphere: As a result, a prodigious phase of a globally collaborative intelligence is in active formation. By the 2010s and 2020s it has commenced to learn, know, decipher and discover by its her/his own. But this enveloping resource and repository, which can provide the sustainable guidance that Earth so needs, is largely unknown.
A Neosphere (Yesphere) Brain: As a radically different whole bicameral, left plus right, binocular cerebral faculty, our erudite Earth Learn MindKinder can then achieve a revolutionary observance of an actual familial milieu.
A Woman’s Mellow Wisdome: Another benefit is to afford and complete a philoSophia Sapiens mindful vista. This vital imperative must be fulfilled right now so to undo and move beyond a long destructive male dominance. Only by readmitting the other feminine, maternal half of a life-friendly ecosmos can it become understood. A 1994 article of mine in Environmental Ethics (16/3) argued that we cannot have a living, sustainable Earth in a dead universe. Into the 2020s, it may well be that only a woman’s (wuman, whoman) ecosmoVerse can accomplish this.
An Altered State of Aware Sentience: As noted above, as our parturient, geonatal state so labors, a crucial act may be an event of waking up from a long dream/sleep unto our own self-conscious personal and planetary realization.
EarthAware Visionary Accomplishments
An eLibrary of eCosmos Online Repository From an absence in 2000, still rudiments by 2010, today such an enveloping resource which we access each day seems to contain (Aleph-like) every amount of information that it can. How many moons does Neptune have = 14. This vast resource could well be seen as a fittest global arrival of the Bit to It knowledge ascent. In a medical sense, its human + Earth interactive discourse very much advanced COVID mitigation. Myriad complex system studies served to reveal epidemic vectors and containments. As we seek to sketch overall trajectories, here is an indication of a curative self-healing trend whence such many findings are fed back to salve the fraught beings from whom it arose.
A Science Spiral from Homo Sapiens to an Earthuman Acumen From our lete, global vantage, a retrospect survey can view this radical advance. 2000: As a new century and millennium dawned, only a minimum semblance of a world web Internet existed. Desk and laptop computers were still rudimentary, iPads and iPhones a decade away. Paper books and journals had to be tracked down in libraries, as I did in my Amherst, MA locale, and often to Boston and Yale. New Haven. Imagine life without Google, arXiv eprint, Amazon, Springer books, and a billion other sites. 2010 Whence the shift to cyberspace editions began, but with little access to journals without a purchase. A smattering of full text books got going, but libraries were a necessity until around 2015.
2022 As readers well know, today an instant, total availability of almost any journal, book and topical item is taken for granted. As a reader may now view a thousand arXiv.org postings each day, along with Nature Scientific Reports, PNAS, and hundreds of other periodical noted in Chap. II, it is easy to consider a dynamic, recursive worldwise knowledge resource and discovery process going on by itself.
A Phenomenal, Self-Existent, Independent, Generative Reality We go on to add the prime importance of a visionary, cognitive, mindfulness which is able to allow, admit, perceive and comprehend a encompassing presence with its own identity. The radical consequence is a realization, via its organic essence, that it is wholly endowed by a genetic-like source code. As a result, every manifest scale and instance from universe to wuman can be appreciated as an exemplary (wo)manifestation.
An Actual Discovery of a Family Ecosmos Procreation Global scientific advances, published on a daily basis. now evidently reveal a greater genesis in place on its independent own. This vista, of which we a largely unawares, quite implies a prior, creative reality from whence it all came. But a 20th century total male phase remains in denial sans an integral sensibility to inquire, allow, and realize. Our Family Ecosmos phrase is meant to convey a natural, built-in, encoded feature whence wuman and uniVerse compose a mirror image as if parents and children. By virtue of such an invariant universal bigender code in kind everywhere that an overall comprehension can then be achieved.
A Revolutionary CoCreative Natural Ecosmic Genesis UniVerse: As the whole website content attests, a novel moribund machine to an organic, fertile, lively, self-organizing, making, verifying personification is becoming robustly evident. In the temporal course, it returns our precious Earthly presence to a central prominence. (See an extended writeup in the nextsection.)
Our 2020s Retrospective Witness: As our Earthuman sapience may turn to serves to note that as this integral vista may reveals itself, a temporal ecosmic “mid-point” might be defined as a collective capacity becomes capable of looking back and literally quantifying how persons, life, Earth, and Ecosmos came into being. We might suggest “Whoman” as another name and identity as we arrive here and are invited and compelled to ask and see a self-verifying existence.
An Iteracy, Geonomic, Genelish, Earthese We just broach the public domain of attaining a commonly respectful, uniVersal language.
A Personsphere Progeny Finds a Natural Family Genesis Procreation
At this outset, we are trying to express the considerable opportunity of coming upon an whole uniVerse explanation which has a place and purpose for our observant, cocreative presence. (As a caveat, we are not trying to put a face on it, nor make excuses.) A further factor may then be involved. If to consider, it seems that any such optimum planetary (geonate) issue need figure all this out for themselves, by their own decisive initiative. Please see this 2022 edition as a working composite as Great Earth may advance into our novel Discovery Decade.
A 21st Century MultiUniVersal Revolutionary Vision in Our Midst As Thomas Kuhn famously cited in The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (1970) in such a moment of total revision, old and new worldviews can exist side by side. A recent article by Dan Falk (Scientific American July 2021) for Nobel physicist Stephen Weinberg’s passing cites how his 1977 pointless claim has permeated and set in as a final verdict. But tragic loss is any allowance of a natural guidance for local and global complementary societies. We first cite Falk, but then add an 1895 quote from William James (Historical Prescience) to show that this dire denial has long been in place.
The philosophy that Weinberg laid out in The First Three Minutes is now echoed in many popular physics books. In The Big Picture (2016), Sean Carroll sees nothing to fear in an amoral universe that doesn’t care what we do, In a similar vein, Brian Greene writes in Until the End of Time (2020): Particles and fields, there is no evidence for anything else. (Falk)
There were times when Leibnitzes could compose Theodicies, and when an established church could prove a "Moral and Intelligent Contriver of the World." But we of the nineteenth century, with our evolutionary theories and our mechanical philosophies, already know nature too impartially to worship any god. Visible nature is all plasticity and indifference. (International Journal of Ethics, 6/1, W. James)
But an issue at this late hour is that centuries ago the Ptolemaic and Copernican scenarios where parallel conceptions. Fast forward, this time the two options occur within radically different cognitive domains. While the nothingness scheme may be due to a male myopia, a revisionary discovery is going on within a collaborative venue coming to her/his own actual knowledge (an Ecopernicus might be apt). A good example could be that when I sought in 2020 to retrieve the W, James article from 125 years ago, a PDF was readily available.
We next cite a report, Complex and Yet Predictable: The Message of the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics, (Ravishankara, PNAS 119/2, 2022) which was the first awarded for complexity science. The review made the strong point that after many years of study, natural phenomena could at last be discerned to possess its own inherent, albeit elusive, self-organizing spontaneities.
Syukuro (Suki) Manabe, Klaus Hasselmann, and Georgio Parisi were awarded the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics. Simply put, the prize acknowledges that disordered systems are predictable to changes in external parameters by way of condensed matter physics. (1) Manabe’s work dealt with the physical representations of climate processes while Hasselman found a statistical predictability in a chaotic system. And Parisi dealt with the disorder from atomic to cosmic scales, sometimes self-generated, again by a statistical view. (3)
A Second Earthmost and Ecosmost Liferacy Singularity At an outset here is an interim synopsis of what kind of universal reality may just now be revealing itself to us. In respect, one might pose that an entire uniVerse could have a definitive identity which needs our observant affirmation and cocreative futurity. As a trillion galaxies and some quintillion orbital planets appear and evolve by turns, this astro-biochemical milieu has its own genetic source and informed impetus. A prime qualification then seems to be its self-decipherment and fiteracy to take up and over, read and write, by an emergent personal/global intelligence. A specific task for us, as an optimum candidate, is to realize that we need to figure all this out by our own initiative.
In regard, we here enter a preview of what our nascent sapiensphere cognizance may be finding, which will be viewed more in the 2020 – 2030 - 2040 module. In some real sense we learned Earthumans an aware bioplanet can aspire to be the “It” (iteracy, fiteracy) recipients of the whole ecoVersion, informomic endowment. A vital point thus seems to be a realization that its code-script is actually genetic in kind. So we have dubbed a novel “Liferacy” word for a collective
A Whole Celestial UniVerse: We Earthlings have come to find ourselves in a spatial galactic, stellar system raiment, and in occurrence due a temporal evolutionary vitality. By this occasion, a point of retrospective witness and potential self-discovery can be attained. Into the 21st century, our ecoVerse presence can be set into an encompassing spacescape of contingent multiple universes. (To reflect, what an incredible scenario is being revealed to us.) A new concept we wish to note is that an entire ecosmos reality might be seen to have a distinct, knowable, familial identity of its integral own.
An Innate Astrobiological Fertility An amniotic, life and mind bearing ecosmos then proceeds to spontaneously vivify, self-organize, complexify, evolve, develop, quicken and personify into entity-like groups wherever possible going forward, By this module we consider increasing 21st century findings that the material composition of this fecund spacescape is finely suited for organisms and persons to form, evolve and develop. The range spans the periodic table and myriad compounds starting with water. Such perceptions bode for some “prior agency” that (whom) has put all this in place. While “design” is not apt, an open mindset able to ask and witness need be permitted. Where do fractal mathematics come from, why did cells come along. By what acuity could we be able to admit a real discovery.
Habitable Bioworlds in Solar Systems A Solar-Habitable World Systems Since 1995 to now, a most radical addition has been the discovery of a prolific, contingent propensity to form all manner global objects in starry, incubator-like orrerys. Our 2020s EartHuman sapience can proceed onto a further fantastic realization and scenario whereby this fecundity can be seen to take place on optimum planetary candidates. By this view, a fittest, superOva Earth can accrue an actual ovular-like nature.
An Ecosmomic Liferacy Source Script An organic, maternal and paternal vitality implies an immaterial, generative program in effect. Indeed, a prime addition by way of the moribund machine to animate fertility revolution has been since the 1980s and 1990s the perception and finesse of such an immaterial, mathematic informative domain. We next survey an array of salient aspects of this genetic literacy revolution.
Complex Network Systems As reported in Chap. IV: Ecosmomics, from the 1980s a scientific project intensified as it went on discern an independent, mathematic, far from equilibrium, source script. By way of geometric structures and dynamic processes, it has gained a likeness to a natural anatomy and physiology. See Networks Behind the Morphology and Structural Design of Living Systems. by Marko Gosak, et al at Physics of Life Reviews (March 2022) and Network Analysis of the Kyiv Bylyny Cycle – East Slavic Epic Narratives. by Petro Sarkanych, et al at arXiv:2203.10399 for recent papers.
A Common Complementarity Since the 2010s, global research efforts converged on two distinctive aspects of a discrete object mode and an integral connectivity. In such forms as particle/wave, DNA/GRN, member/group, brain hemispheres, they altogether compose a whole phase of light, genome, flock, one mind, family. It can then be readily evident that they have a bigender identities.
A Self-Similar Universality By the 2020s, as Chapter IV and many other modules convey, its biologic code-script program has now been found to posses a common bigender-like complementarity and overall triality scope. In addition, such a node/link = network, DNA/AND = Genome, et alia dynamic activity seems to seek and settle at a self-organized critical poise between more or less order, conserve and create, red or blue modes. We then want to record that these Global Prize findings constitute an actual discovery which is as real as a gravity wave, chemical element or spiral galaxy.
We remind that the main outline seeks to convey both a common, independent basis, along with its exemplary presence. In the later 2010s and 2020s, many results have converged on a genotype-like quality whose manifest result has by been robustly found from celestial to cultural self-similar scales and instances. Lately, a tendency to self-organize into a critical poise between more or less orderly states adds to its veracity. The extensive Naturome Code section next contains much further evidence for this historic edification.
Earth Life’s Evolutionary Developmental Gestation A 21st century “EarthWinian” Genesis Synthesis can then contribute this pregnant title appreciation suitably in a vital woman’s ecosmos. As many latest findings come altogether, life’s enscripted, self-organized, nested, networked, symbiotic, deeply homologous, member-group form and much more has quite taken on this maternal semblance and sense. As an Agency module below advises, one could say “the plot quickens.”
As Chap. V attests, an historic, total revision has taken place in our unawares. An olden 20th century fixation on random mutations and aimless contingences is being replaced by a self-organization, network patterns, deep homology, symbiosis and more such that an oriented, phylogenetic body, brain, cooperative development and more is traced from the earliest rudiments. (As the Nobel awardee Christian de Duve has mused, an innate fecund biochemistry seems to be “pregnant” with life and people.)
A Vectorial Rise in a Communal Personality Still another distinctive aspect found by our learned Earthumanity can enter the natural narrative. In recent years a central course has become defined by virtue of a sensory, intelligent, personified autonomy in community arises through nested scales. As VI. C: Pedia Sapience can newly report and document, the same neural acumen, proactive behavior, personality traits, and so on can be traced in kind from a minimal. invertebrate cognition to our own human gifts and faults. A further consequence is often noted as an autopoietic self-making, proactive agency. That is to say, from earliest rudiments, life becomes smarter, knowing, cerebral, mosaic, individuated, capable and more. A global capacity for a bigender EarthKinder, and maybe an EcosmoKinder, self-realization may finally become conceivable.
An Optimum Self-Selective Process Indeed, our litany need return to a celestial expanse so as to enter another salient feature. It has become sensed (see Universal Evolution) that some kind of (Darwinian) winnowing among many contingent candidates is in effect across quantum, planetary, solar system, galactic, and maybe Exocosmic scales. However as noted above a novel presence of an informative source code with a propensity to self-organize into animate, stirring systems on their ascendant way to us can be factored in. One might then ask what ecosmic quality might be selectively optimized. Within our tacit participatory scheme, it may be something like an ability to receive, decipher, comprehend, and advance its Biteracy to Iteracy genotype-like endowment.
A Familial Procreative Ecosmos As our emergent evolutionary and late historic course might close upon a geonatal fulfillment, an overall, once and future, salutary appreciation may be newly possible. A deep, innate affinity between human peoples and our celestial raiment has long been an edifying analogy, (see An AnthropoCosmic Vision). By virtue of our 2022 collective knowsphere, a real correspondence between a mother/father “parental” uniVerse and our son/daughter PediaVerse “children” becomes considerable. In essence as noted earlier the discovery of a common complementary genetic-like code and triality whole at every exemplary scale and instance provides another familial occurrence.
A Geonativity Event As a certain way to follow up all of the description so far, some manner of a globally gravid term is a vital implication.. Into this Decisive Decade, an implied parturient planet may at last be in occurrence. This lead Earth Learn essay opens by scoping out a 1990 to 2020 – 2030 to 2060 gravid span. But as apocalyptic calamities quite beset us, at a verge of world war, it is imperative that peoples, nations everywhere become able to unify this fittest, optimum Earth, and their own self-realization. Within a procreative ecosmos, we reach an issue and choice of Kinder or cinder. A prime advance would be an ability to become ethnic Earthians as planetary matriots and patriots.
A Participatory Universe As this survey may proceeds, we ought to consider if a whole temporal pattern is apparent by way, once again, of this current physics model (see Chap. III. C. 1) A long, vectorial course from an original point to an Earth-like goal is traced by an informative Biteracy code all the way to its worldwise-like Iteracy recognition. In fact, our 21st century revolution is not just about an ecosmic universe, but also an imperative place and purpose for valiant human beings and our cocreative global genius.
Ecosmo Sapiens Quantifiers One functional aspect may be to carry out and achieve its self-aware written description so to inform a new cocreation, For example, current eprint entries are Emergence of Galactic Morphologies at Cosmic Dawn (arXiv:2112.08396) and Grand Unification of Quantum Algorithms (2105.02859). We also note Numerical Relativity as a New Tool for Fundamental Cosmology by Anna Ijjas (2201.03752, one woman), The Holographic Space-time and Black Hole Remnants as Dark Matter. By Aurelien Barrau (2201.06988, one man) and Unveiling the Universe with Emerging Cosmological Probes (2201.07241) by a 30 person international team. (See the new Discovery Decade section where new ecosmic papers will be entered.) While our infinitesimal planetary and personal version might be 60 and 100 orders of magnitude less than an infinite universe, our great Earthuman acumen can yet achieve any breadth or depth of scientific quantification. We peoples and nations must decisively self-select Kinder over cinder, an aware act which Could be the Great Filter (Robin Hanson).
A Fittest EarthMost Significant Opportunity After we have altogether posted this phenomenal 2020s scenario, one more, unexpected, auspicious finding can come into play. As the Great Earth: Our Especial Bioplanet can be the Fittest, Optimum Candidate section reports, it has recently been realized that our home bioworld has successfully passed through some twenty critical tests to reach this speciesphere moment. See A. Ambrifi, R. Anand, R. Martin, and J. O’Callaghan for new 2022 entries. As a barbaric carnage against Ukrainian civilians threatens to expand into global nuclear war phase, an strong possibility accrues that our ovular-like Earthly issue in an ecosmos may be one in a quintillion to get this far. In timely regard we respectfully offer this concurrent EarthWise dispensation.
An Evolitionary CoCreative Prowess As Chapter Viii. Earth Earn: Our Open CoCreative Ecosmocene Destiny outlines, if we Earthlings may be avail an integral Sophia and Pedia sapience, we micro-ecosmic participants can take up an a second intentional stage so as to continue nature’s material and biogenetic advance. See this Chapter for a wide array of mind/matter, biohealth, enhancement, commonwealth, ecovillage, genocracy, ubuntu uniVerse, viable Gaia sustainabilities going forward.
These writings now proceed onto the A 2023 Review/Preview: EarthKinder Reads an Integral Ecosmome to Geonome Complementary Endowment, and hopefully onto A 2030 to Earthernity Sustainable Participatary CoCreation with a Naturome Narrative on Purpose drafty continuance.
