The New Paradigm Journal
in conjunction with The Global Citizens For Peace aims to create
a platform which mobilises youth, talent and creativity in developing
a more participatory and equal World?
We need to get on side, some of the world's great
innovators and social entrepreneurs who are creating a more equal
and participatory world, and ask them to be on a panel, which would
assess the great social and environmental and political achievements
for societal well-being, environmental sustainability and international
peace occurring in Australia and in the world at large.
We need your help, your vision and your participation
to create this panel, a web site and a TV show, which will focus
on these themes, thereby educating the public as to the best projects
they can create for the well-being of all of Australian and Global

THE CRISIS OF VALUES AND ATTITUDES ON THE
Humankind has reached a state of development in
which old modes of thinking and behaving threaten to destroy our
planet. This is becoming patently obvious to people of all political
and religious persuasions. We are living through a global crisis
in which only a profound revolution can save us from total self-destruction.
Those of us who are dedicated to the preservation of life must play
a prominent part in this revolution, which calls for a substantial
change in our manner of thinking.
Thomas Kuhn introduced the idea that science functions
under the control of a paradigm. For centuries science has been
guided by a paradigm based on the intellectual achievements of Newton
and Descartes, who saw the world mechanistically and reductively,
with its division of inside and outside, subject and object. This
has been overturned by the work of Einstein and his theory of relativity,
the atomic physicists and others who have discovered laws that don't
fit the old paradigm. The new paradigm which is emerging takes into
account the observer as well as the thing observed, and the fact
that the two cannot be separated. There cannot be objective knowledge
without a knowing subject: what we see must be relative to and influenced
by where we are and who we are.
In human affairs, objectivity on its own does
not work because it contradicts what it means to be a human being.
A human being is not an object. He or she is not only a thinking
but a feeling person with emotions, values, hunches, intuitions,
sensitivities which have a tremendous influence on what they do
and how they perceive the world. He or she is both an individual,
alone in their own private world, and also a member of a particular
society; and, in turn, that society belongs to a wider community,
the human family, with which every individual shares common experiences
and aspirations and a common global environment.
Basis for Action
We have to re-evaluate ourselves as the prime
cause of the problems we are facing, and rediscover the profound
value inherent in every single human being. This is something that
the United Nations conferences, as yet, have not really addressed.
The suggested process involves:
- the creation of a planetary peace and ecological
culture, i.e. a sustainable civilization.
- evolution of consumption and macro economy
as a result of changes in consciousness, value system , need structure,
education reform and human development.
- human development as a prerequisite to the
development of true civilization.
- an understanding of the power of the human
potential, including the power of the mind to devise appropriate
- the communication technology and the media.
- the integration of scientific disciplines
and scientific knowledge with consciousness
- the use of innovative forms of education which
recapture the essence and heart of education.
- economic empowerment of the developing world
by the rich countries by mobilising human development.
Education, knowledge and wisdom are very powerful
tools for the survival of humankind. The more thought we put into
our survival, the more solutions we will get. An open dialogue is
the key to our success because it addresses differences, difficulties
and barriers, and creates co-operation.
Although the media tend to sensationalize destruction,
exploitation, greed and sexuality, there is a way in which the media
can, in fact, exalt ecological culture, peace and the values associated
Earth can be saved from mankind only if people are prepared to live
with nature, rather than upon nature. We have been taught that this
world, and all plants and creatures thereon, were created for man's
use: that he was given dominion over all other forms of life and
that he must go forth and multiply. It is now clear that if he follows
that belief his extinction is inevitable. Therefore, his whole relationship
with Earth, with nature, must change rapidly. But relationships
between individuals or between man and his environment are intellectual
and of the spirit, rather than of material gain or loss."
A substantially new manner of thinking is required
integrating all sciences and creating a holistic approach which
takes into account the inextricable relationship between life and
all phenomena. Such a science needs to integrate scientific materialism
and consciousness and requires a profound change in human values
|"When I went
to the Moon, I was as pragmatic a test pilot engineer and scientist
as any one of my colleagues.... but there was another aspect
to my experience during Apollo 14......The first thing that
came to mind as I looked at Earth was its incredible beauty...I
knew that life in the Universe was not just an accident based
on random processes. This knowledge came to me directly....
It was an experiential cognition. But still as real as the objective
data upon which say the navigational programme was based."
Edgar Mitchell (Astronaut, supporter
of The Centre)
Our main proposal is therefore:
To ask the UN, including
especially UNEP, UNESCO and UNCSD and the governments of the world,
to support ideas and proposals on developing and putting into practice,
new informational and educational policy based on the new scientific
and intellectual paradigm, to develop and establish new educational
programs for different national, social and age groups. Such programs
would be established under the aegis of the UN (directly or under
UNEP & UNESCO) institutions, governments and industrial organisations.
These proposals concern education, information policy and science
based on the new way of thinking that we may prevent the potential
Economic, Social and Political State of Affairs
Ten years after the Rio Earth Summit, we are still
far from the prevention of a global ecological catastrophe and the
creation of a solution to urgent ecological, social, economic and
political problems which affect billions of people. No visible and
substantial results have been achieved.
We currently live in a global political system,
which has changed from the polarisation of USA vs USSR to a monopolar
order completed after September 11th. The monopolar system is not
sustainable by definition. The process which is known today as globalisation
is a mono-polarisation. A genuine globalisation is the transformation
of our globalised world to a cooperative, united, human family.
Our world faces a global threat - the danger of
ecological catastrophe, which threatens equally every human being,
every nation and every social group. The contradictory interests
of a multitude of cultures and nations often camouflage and confuse
the problems we are facing, because the information is not available
through the mass-media.
Macro Environmental Global Issues
The Global ecological threat is apparent in numerous
known and unknown phenomena to the extent that we are on an extinction
curve, more pronounced than at any time since the extinction of
the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. The world has been converted
in an instant of time from a wild natural state to one in which
human beings one of an estimated 10 million species of organisms
are consuming, wasting, or diverting an estimated 45% of the total
net biological productivity on land, and using more than half of
the renewable fresh water. In a matter of a hundred years, we have
altered substantially the characteristics of the land, the freshwaters
of the Earth, and the seas. We are driving a major proportion of
the species which are fundamental for our continued existence, to
Klaus Toephler, Director of the UN Environment
program, Nairobi, Kenya in the United Nations Environmental Study
2002 Report states, 'the Planet is poised on a precipice, and time
is running out for making tough, economic and political choices
that can pull it back from disaster.'
This report, made by contributions from more than
1,000 scientists associated with UNEP shows that within 30 years:
- 55% of the global
population will suffer severe water shortages
- 11,000 plant and animal
species will be dead or dying
- 30% of the biodiversity
will be erased by the middle of the century
- There will be increased
emissions of carbon dioxide doubling to 16 billion pounds per
year since the 19th century.
The Military Industrial Complex
No threat is greater than the threat of nuclear
war. There are still between 40,000-50,000 nuclear warheads in the
world today - enough to destroy 60 times the Earth's population.
In addition to India and Pakistan, 15-20 developing countries will
have nuclear capability in the next 10 years.
For a fracture of arms spending, (over $1trillion
dollars annually), sanitation and clean water could be supplied
to all the deprived peoples of the world. Wide spread diseases could
be prevented and schooling and medicine provided.
The global military complex which has emerged
for the defense of nations and people has become more dangerous
that the threat it should prevent. If only a fraction of the financial
and scientific resources it consumes were used to prevent the potential
ecological catastrophe a sustainable civilisation could be built.
The Medical System
The domination of the pharmaceutical industry
in the health system ignores nutritional, environmental, preventative
and lifestyle management of illness through health promotion. Due
to inequities in global health care, a child dies of avoidable disease
every three seconds. The global community faces morbidity from the
growth of AIDS, a resurgence of other infectious diseases such as
Hepatitis, and Malaria, particularly in the developing world.
The developed world is faced with cardiovascular disease, cancer
The Consumptive Society
Modern society with its excessive emphasis on
commercial return, economic growth, wealth and material success,
subordinates and distorts peoples minds, mentalities and ultimately,
real needs. The people are victims of surrogate values and needs
forced on them by informational and economic sub-systems of society.
Our survival has to be seen from on overview of
planetary sustainability and transboundary environmental issues.
The old system that says we have to dominate, cultivate fear, and
exploit in order to survive, is no longer tenable.
A positive change in new world outlook requires
the cultivation of genuine human values and the acknowledgement
of the interconnectedness and interdependence between humans, the
natural environment and the Universe. The cultivation of Self knowledge,
self esteem and spiritual growth, would lead paradoxically to a
reallocation of consumer resources, conservation of nature and new,
more sustainable, technological and scientific advances.
A Global Crisis of Social Values
The global crisis is symptomatic of the inadequacies
of our social values. Ethical and moral value systems have not evolved
properly to keep up the balance with our growing material needs
and technological inventiveness. We are living through a civilisation
crisis in which only a profound social epiphany leading to a paradigmatic
shift, unlike any other in history, can save us from total self
The environmental problems that we face are because
humankind does not see itself as a species, whose role is as a subsystem
of the biosphere. Humanity's role is, in our opinion, to develop
a deep understanding and wisdom based on our alignment with the
Universal Laws and the co-evolution of human society with nature.
Our basic requirement is for ecological peace
and health which means a complete shift of the paradigm involving
science, education and health to a complete understanding of humanity
and its relationship with the cosmos.
The Genesis of Environmental Problems
The Loss of Values and
the Loss of Dreams
The most underused and misused resource on the
planet is the human mind. Although we may have finite natural, ecological
resources, we have one infinite resource, which is the human mind
and spirit. This may be the only resource which will save our planet.
The famous Russian scientist and Academician,
Dr Vladimir Vernadsky, in the first half of the 20th Century, saw
the future of humanity linked to a model of reality called the Noosphere,
which is a noetic science of consciousness and the world of inner
experience. The noetic science, reappraises the nature of the human
being and its relationship with the cosmos, integrating western
science with eastern wisdom.
The root problem is that our social life and our
economic and technological development is grounded in the old, but
still predominant paradigm based on the intellectual achievements
of Newton and Descartes, who saw the world mechanistically and reductively.
This has been overturned by the work of Einstein who showed that
the new paradigm is based on the relationship and connection with
the thing observed. What we see must be relative and influenced
by what we are, how we are and where we are. The old paradigm works
well for mechanisms and technology, but does not work when we try
and understand consciousness and psychosocial issues.
Tolstoy, in War and Peace, said 'the highest wisdom
has but one science, the science of the whole -the science explaining
the whole of creation and man's placement'.
The measures aimed at
preventing ecological catastrophe and transition to sustainable
development, whether it be technological, economic and or ecological,
will be doomed to failure unless we free ourselves from the old
scientific, intellectual paradigm.
In our printed and visual media we find sensationalism, and no integration
of news or proper analysis, as news tends to serve political purposes
. Our news media tends to create an erroneous picture of reality
and draw people away from serious reflection. There is no public
voice. Even in Universities there seems to be no integration between
different specialties and information is narrowly focussed.
It is no wonder that our young people are worried
and often angry. Their lives are changing, but they feel there is
no future, as they feel there is nothing left. Our young people
nowadays grow up so quickly due to the influence of the media, particularly
television. The destructive influence of mass media on the developing
psyche of children and teenagers has a deleterious effect on the
creation of the integrated personality. Parental care is lost as
parents go out to work under the increasingly stressful working
environment. In this situation, they are not able to substitute
money, property, social status, and material needs with the creation
The New Paradigm Integrating Spirituality and
Einstein, 50 years ago, said 'if humanity is to
survive, there has to be a substantially new manner of thinking.'
He also said 'A human being is part of the whole that we call the
universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences in himself,
his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest a
kind of optical illusion of his consciousness. This illusion is
a prison for us restricting us to our personal desires and to affection
for only the few people nearest to us. Our task must be to free
ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living beings and all of nature.'
Vaclav Havel, echoed this statement when he became
President of Czechoslovakia, stating that there needs to be a massive
change in consciousness if humankind is to survive.
The root problem is that although we have made
great leaps in technological science, and our physical knowledge
has expanded, our development, is based on an inadequate understanding
of the world generally, as well as of human beings and human life.
Our science serves technological development, but it is incapable
of predicting the consequences of the interaction of technology
The new vision of reality
requires us to review our origins, the nature of evolution and the
basic cause behind the need of healing for the individual, society
and the global civilisation We have to reevaluate ourselves and
our mode of development as the prime cause of the problems we are
In this respect, the new frontier is the new paradigm
which is the new spirituality that encompasses a consciousness of
oneness where all of life on Earth is connected and not separate.
The great Copernican revolution of the 21st Century
is to realise the nature of universal consciousness spirit and soul.
Great inventions, great thought and creativity
come from a higher order of intelligence and consciousness. Education,
in our view should be based on this concept of human potential and
the hidden abilities within all human beings. Particularly we would
emphasise the power of the sub-conscious and conscious mind and
the ability of the individual to find expression in a unique and
A new ethos implies a belief in universal abundance
actualised by the creative potential of human minds. The key to
this abundance is the creation of a new kind of non-polluting energy,
which gives humanity the opportunity to meet all of humanity's needs.
Our civilization is changing rapidly. As a result,
we are entering the so called post-industrial or the information
The computer information and technological revolution
now occurring should be accompanied by new ways that actualise the
global mind and vastly enhance the creative potential and access
to freedom for all humanity.
Now is the time that millions of people need to
awaken to their sense of truth, freedom, co-operation and connectedness
with all of life - an expression of connected humanity.
What is needed, we believe,
is a new science that can integrate the mind and its abilities with
the whole phenomenon of human productiveness, technology and the
environment. This means that we have integration instead of fragmentation
into the various subjects that are taught in universities, which
are differentiated and separated into various disciplines. This
means that we produce graduates versed in the whole phenomenon of
This is possible because
science already has come to a new level of understanding of the
new paradigm. This paradigm should become the basis for new education
systems, new information policies, and a means to building relationships
between people, nations, social groups etc.
Education, in this sense, is giving to people
throughout the planet an understanding of what they have in common
despite their races, religions, ideologies, cultures, traditions,
beliefs and spiritualities - enabling them to realise their backgrounds,
their origins and potential and individual destinies within the
common ground of human life and existence.
Openness is a prerequisite of education. It is
also the prerequisite of communication.
New forms of communication are needed, involving
the media, which will help to educate people by enabling them to
realise the depth and power of the human spirit and the ability
of people to heal themselves and to create peace.
Our aim is to promote a dialogue to impact human
consciousness on a deep and profound level.
"All that man has here in multiplicity is
intrinsically One. Here all blades of grass, wood and stone, all
things are One. This is the deepest depth. And thereby am I completely
captivated". Meister Eckhart (1260-1327)
Our Proposals are
To ask the UN (including the UNEP, UNESCO,
UNCSD and other bodies:
- To support ideas and proposals on developing
and putting into practice a new informational and educational
policy based on the new scientific and intellectual paradigm to
develop and establish new educational programs for different national
social and, age groups. Such programs would be established under
the aegis of the UN or its institutions aimed at implementing
the major proposals formulated below. Such an educational program
would integrate healing issues looking at the importance of lifestyle,
nutrition, relaxation, nutritional supplementation, meditation
and exercise for the prevention of the major scourges of illness
and deprivation in our global community. This activity would be
facilitated by outstanding world leaders and key humanist individuals.
- To establish educational programs for
teachers, and for different social and age groups.
- To involve key representatives of politics,
business, culture and the arts.
- To elaborate and enhance the conception
of eco-settlements understanding the profound connection between
dwellings and the environment in which they exist and to provide
support to eco-settlements from international, governmental and
non governmental entities.
To call all the World's scientists to take
part in developing the intellectual basis for forming a sustainable
A substantially new manner of thinking is required integrating all
sciences and creating a holistic approach which takes into account
the inextricable relationship between life and all phenomena. Such
a science needs to integrate scientific materialism and consciousness
and requires a profound change in human values and attitudes.
To ask all educational
organisations of teachers of all levels and professors to
support our ideas and aims in order to create educational programs
based on new paradigm for distribution among families, schools and
universities which has at its highest priority, the integration
of the human being with the family of humanity, civilization, planet
earth, and the cosmos. In this respect, we particularly wish to
study and understand the role of ecology in economics, psychosocial
issues and cross cultural issues in order to enhance relationships
between nations, cultures, creeds and religions.
To ask all medical doctors
and health professionals to support a form of medicine which
is integrative, health giving and gives individuals the opportunity
to take responsibility for their own lives and the opportunity to
arrest the development of degenerative disease or prevent it altogether.
To ask business and community
groups to consider our proposals in developing a new
sector in the market: on ecologically sound production, primarily
in food and medicine, placing emphasis on organic foods, sustainable
agricultural practices and cellular and herbal medicines.
A new sector for the solution of our global problems
would also include education (training courses), publications, centres
designed specifically for health promotion, preventative health,
self care, ecological education and spiritual development. Our children
need oxygen, water, food, trees and grass and a sustainable environment
more than material possessions in order to thrive.
To appeal to the young
people of the world to seek unity within diversity, cohesion
where there is fragmentation and resolution where there is conflict.
We ask them to take on the responsibility for this brilliant jewel
of our planet and seek to acquire a deep and abiding passion and
knowledge for life itself. A profound cultivation of true civilisation
requires a broad and deep understanding of the nature of humanity,
earth, the cosmos and the culture of their nation and all nations.
It requires a profound love and respect for all peoples and the
living biodiversity of nature itself.
To ask governments to
support our concerns and ideas and to establish appropriate state
institutes, to initiate programmes aimed at focusing on scientific
activities as a matter of urgency on:
- New ways of thinking about our place on Earth
and the ways in which we relate to the functioning of natural
systems if we are to find a better way to live in harmony with
- Formulating new ways in industry and agriculture,
making a possible a sustainable world.
- Reforming educational systems based on the
- National strategies to create the conditions
o Human and social development
o Environmentally friendly economies
o Poverty reduction
We feel that if these
major principles and directions are instigated we may be able to
prevent the global catastrophe to which we are currently headed.
