As the Alliance is transcultural and transdisciplinary, like the Internet, it is in a different category from any other human group on Earth at the present time. For instance, it is more like the United Nations than any one particular nation. Or to give an example from Gilbert Ryle’s The Concept of Mind, it is a category-mistake to think of Oxford University as in the same category as Christ Church, the Bodleian Library, or the Ashmolean Museum.
Therein lies the immense potential of the activities of the all-inclusive Alliance. As it has evolved from the semantic modelling methods that underlie the Internet, it is able to accommodate the activities of poets and physicists and of spiritual teachers and computer programmers, indeed of any area of human endeavour, with equal facility. This is because these modelling methods are of very great abstraction and generality, like pure mathematics, requiring the conceptual clarity and precision of the legal mind.
That is the great beauty of the Internet. One can move from one culture or specialism to another at any level in the spectrum of consciousness at the click of a button. So the Internet, as a whole, provides a wonderful mirror of our minds, able to show us how all forms and structures in the Cosmos relate to each other as a coherent whole.
The Alliance is thus able to act as a network of networking networks, accelerating and harmonizing evolutionary convergence through the synergistic relationships that are created, apparently out of nothing.
