Global Peace Centre announces Shifting Paradigms

Conference In October 2015

The Shifting Paradigms Conference has the purpose of speaking for and enhancing the change in values and attitudes of human beings through an ongoing, open, informed, articulate debate and dialogue on key issues affecting the future of humankind. Humanity is at a critical point in history and this decade may be the last chance to create a new paradigm for survival. It is an urgent consultation amongst the whole family of humankind and links the development and fulfilment of each individual to the sustainable evolution of the biosphere.

We are faced with a final decision that can make or break humanity as a species on this planet and three major challenges.

- One is climate change . We have only a few years for a global Consensus to end the monopoly of fossil fuels and curtail them completely in twenty years. Otherwise runaway climate change can cause extinction of all biodiversity including human beings.

- The second is the military industrial Complex costing 1.6 trillion dollars a year and contributing to a divided humanity and competition for scarce resources

- The third is the genocide of women who are the basic carers for society and those who up bring our future generations’ .This genocide of three million women a year with multitudes in severe psychological distress shows man has no respect for future generations

Everything is for short term growth and wealth accumulation for the one percent Global minority elite , with no concern for our future generations or for the planet ecosystem.

We are embedded in a system which seeks to exploit through language, media, image products and science There is no real truth in this scenario. The benevolent, homogenous , society maintains the delusion and illusion that everything is OK and we don't need to look.

Money is the object -money which is the reflection of free trade, big brother, the military industrial complex, big Pharma and retirement villages and socioeconomic class structures We have a mesmerised majority of citizens sans true religion, spirituality community or real human relationship

Technocracy, as the science of governing man, resorts to the traditional emotions that make it possible to manipulate people, through the adoption of new techniques of communication and education.

Violence against women is rampant throughout the world.

It seems that the most vulnerable of our population are singled out for either neglect or often punishment. The vulnerable are OF course women ,children, the aged and infirm.

A Human Renaissance of thought, conscience and ethics is required - In other words a New Paradigm reflecting new ways of thinking and massive change in consciousness and the cultivation of love – The Divine Spark.

‘The highest wisdom has but one science - the science of the whole - the science explaining the whole creation and man’s place in it.’ (Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace.)

Editorial

Our National “leaders”, represented by the G20, no longer represent the voice or the will of the majority of their people and the World’s people. They appear to only see short-term economic gains while the global economic system runs on the assumption that nature can continually provide us with infinite resources. Simultaneously, the growing threats to the human future of Nuclear War and Global Climate Change now severely threaten our future and all life on Earth.

AIMS OF HUMANITY

To seek new ways of thinking and behaving and to eliminate violence and exploitation, individually, internationally and environmentally
To create unity and harmony and act as a networking group
To work towards a sustainable peace and health for all in the third millennium
To nurture a deep respect for life

Cree Indian saying

‘We travel together, passengers on a little space ship, dependent on its vulnerable resources of air and soil; all committed for our safety to its security and peace; preserved from annihilation only by the work, the care and, I will say, the love we give our fragile craft. We cannot maintain it half fortunate and half miserable, half confident, half despairing, half slave to the ancient enemies of man, half free in a liberation of resources undreamed of until this day. No craft, no crew, can travel safely with such contradictions.

On their resolution depends the survival of us all.’
Adla Stevenson

‘Citizen movements and non-governmental organisations are now officially credited with predicting the energy crisis as early as 1969; promoting alternative, solar energy, and sustainable development strategies; and forcing issues of disarmament and peace, human rights and social justice onto national and international agendas.’
Hazel Henderson

CALL TO THE G20

Preamble

This Petition is an ongoing petition to the G20 group of Nations on behalf of the People of the World, and is intended to raise attention and discussion on the precarious state of Global Economics and our shared Future, and the fact that our political leaders are not representing the vast majority of Humanity to lead us towards a peaceful and sustainable future but rather are leading the human family to chaos and the potential collapse of civilization. We are at tipping point in terms of Climate Change and increasing danger of Nuclear War while severe poverty and hunger with the lack of basic amenities afflicts two-fifths of the World’s population. We live on a Planet with finite resources and we cannot rely on infinite growth to solve our problems. It is now time for Humanity, as a whole, to take a stand and speak out on an ongoing basis to ask our leaders to truly represent the requirements and needs of all us, not just the financial and corporate elite.

Shaping the Future Global - Conference Earth

Conference Earth – Shaping the Future deals with global health and environmental sustainability, education, the role of the internet, human rights and social justice, seeing all these factors as interrelated.
Our conference is about the hard facts pertaining to Human survival and the real evidence concerning the nature of consciousness.

We have lost our humanity in the hierarchy of human production lines whether in professions or business or religion. We have become or are becoming clones in an outmoded system of production and exploitation
Our aim is to create a movement which will expand into a new way forward focussed on a future of hope and peace through humanistic creative activity and expression, whole person healing,education, openness of dialogue and new art, film, and literature and a new emergent consciousness of the sacredness of all of life.

Conference Earth – Shaping the Future reveals the real state of affairs on this planet as well as the solutions which are based on a new cartography of not only the physical nature of the human being but also a new understanding of the Human spirit.

Economics and Goverment - The Global Crisis In Human Relationships

Globalisation on the free trade model of the neo-liberal Washington consensus economics is colliding with local cultures natural economic sovereignty, social customs and values, as well as traditional agriculture, indigenous rights and the protection of biodiversity and the environment. The fundamental issue is the very economic model underlying today's Globalisation of technology, trades and markets. The critics from many diverse perspectives agree that free trade doesn't account for social and environmental costs and cultural disruption in the price in traded goods and services will continue to cause more harm than good. The World Bank, the IMF, the US Government and the WTO still refuse to recalculate prices and microeconomic indicators including the GDP to include these social and environmental costs, which contribute towards the deterioration of human life. Civil society movement groups throughout the world are committed to the idea of preserving human identity and enriching biological and cultural diversity.

Economics

The traditional model of "homo economicus" - that ever-rational individual, always maximizing his self-interest in competition with others is now acknowledged as unrealistic. It is a fear and scarcity model based on the early reptilian brain and the territoriality of our primitive past .This bleak model of human behavior at the heart of economics is not only dismal - but increasingly proven wrong by many other scientists and much recent research by neuroscientists, microbiologists, psychologists, anthropologists and yes, game theorists. This is why many recent Bank of Sweden Economics prizes have gone to scientists studying human behavior beyond the economics profession, from psychologists to game theorists John Harsonyi, John Nash and Reinhard Selten in 1994.

Politics

ONE CRUCIAL aspect of the rising disaffection with globalization is the lack of citizen participation in the global institutions that shape people's daily lives. This public frustration is deeper and broader than the recent street demonstrations in Seattle and Prague. Social commentators and leaders of citizens' and intergovernmental organizations are increasingly taking heed. In 2000, President Clinton joined with the secretary-general of the United Nations, the director-general of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the president of the World Bank to call for greater citizen participation in the international order... read more >

G20 - Save the Planet
“The votes of tens of thousands of vulnerable people are threatened by voter ID laws. Those most at risk are elderly and young voters, people in remote rural regions, people with disabilities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the homeless,” said Ms Howie.

Futures

Do we wish to create a more cooperative and caring global society or will we persist in ignoring increasing inequity and poverty in a world, which is already in crisis from environmental degradation and climate change. Sustainable survival of the human race is dependent on new ways of thinking. Within the context of our society there is a occurring a major change or shift in paradigm in the way we view reality. The new way of thinking shows that everything maintains itself at the expense of everything else and that at the deepest level we are all connected. ... read more >

Environment and Resources - The Erosion of Biodiversity

Human beings have already changed the environment of the planet radically and have caused many other bio-extinctions of other species. If current trends continue the picture will get worse. The projected extra six billion people in the next hundred years, predicted for 2020 would need more room to live and grow food. If there are more of us, there is less room for plants and animals. There is less room for the tropical rainforests and the planetary biodiversity of species. Human beings are causing extinctions at 100-10,000 times the natural rate. This is the greatest way of extinction since the end of the cretaceous period 65 million years ago when the dinosaurs were annihilated...read more >

The global revolution in human consciousness

Without a global revolution in the sphere of human consciousness, nothing will change for the better in the sphere of our being as humans, and the catastrophe toward which this world is headed -be it ecological, social, demographic or a general breakdown of civilization - will be unavoidable. If we are no longer threatened by world war or by the danger that the absurd mountains of accumulated nuclear weapons might blow up the world, this does not mean that we have definitively won. We are, in fact, far from the final victory. Excerpt Vaclav Havel's address to the US Congress, 21 February 1990.

The Medicine Of Light

The medicine of light is preempted on the understanding that consciousness is the primary phenonemon in the universe and that light is the basis of creation. Superluminal light, or the basic quanta or photons for the common ground of reality on which the universe exists allows for the intersection of many energetic informational spectra. The subatomic world of electrons, protons and neutrons are viewed as patterns of vibrational spectra. Higher consciousness is connected with the embodiment of light as the basic epigenetic patterning on which our body is based and which influences the overall functioning of our body. In fact the human body is purely an embodiment of several energy vehicles and because of this has a multi dimensional subtle anatomy. We are in fact living conduits to the stars, galaxies and cosmos.

Individual power. Your power. It stands as the essence of what the founding documents of the American Republic are all about, once you scratch below the surface a millimeter or so.


Media

The instinct of the media is to concentrate only on dramatic events, e.g. delivering warfare as an incident full of drama and excitement. Media never really covers a conflict in entirety. It does not seek to pursue or analyse the situation in any depth, and news becomes just a passing fancy, rather than an ability to open eyes or open hearts. We are censored from information. Just as transnational companies become few and powerful, there are only several powerful news agencies in the world, which give information which is often politically or system-biased.

"What the inventive genius of mankind has bestowed upon us in the last hundred years could have made human life care free and happy if the development of the organizing power of man had been able to keep step with his technical advances."
Albert Einstein 1932

"Science is not a heartless pursuit of objective information. It is a creative human activity, its geniuses acting more as artists than as information processors."
Stephen Jay Gould 1942-2002

"A human being is part of the whole called by us universe , a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty...We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive."
Albert Einstein

Science and religion

The New Paradigm calls for spiritual, ecological and holistic worldviews, derived from perceptions of connectedness and interdependence. There is a need to restore the balance between the masculine and feminine principles and between humanity and nature, that we may recreate a sense of wholeness. The new era needs to use the creative power of the people by respecting the common ground of humanity, understanding the interconnectedness of all life, enhancing female and male creativity and opening the global heart of humankind.The new physics which underlies our understanding of the world shows that the universe is a biological self referential field of energy and intelligence. We are indeed oneness.

Renaissance of consciousness and thinking

The words of wise leaders have cautioned us about the need for a fundamental shift in thinking and perception. Former Czech President Vaçlav Havel and Albert Einstein are two such figures. Havel, in his February 1990 address to the United States Congress, spoke of the "antiquated straitjacket of the bipolar view of the world," and stressed that "without a global revolution in the sphere of human consciousness, nothing will change for the better in the sphere of our being as humans. " Einstein warned repeatedly that without a fundamental change in human thinking, our species would drift toward ultimate catastrophe... read more >

Wisdom, spirituality and personal transformation

Let us step out of the conformity, political correctness, and brain washing of a confused global society. People seem not to be able to change entrenched ways of thinking and ingrained habits.
