Since 2012, as my creative thought processes have approached maturity, I have written four treatises emphasizing the scientific side of the science-mysticism divide. They are intended as an intermediate point between the Wholeness triology and many shorter essays and articles.
As these treatises introduce Integral Relational Logic, the commonsensical science of thought, mind, reason, intelligence, and consciousness that we all implicitly use everyday, the intended readership of these treatises has been Fellows of the Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge.
Not that it is easy communicating with ‘natural’ scientists, for Uta Frith, emeritus professor at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London, has said, “My own field, call it psychology, or cognitive or behavioural neuroscience, still leads a rather shadowy existence in the hallowed halls of science.” Commenting on the challenges facing Venki Ramakrishnan, the new President who took office on 30th November 2015, she goes on to say,
“One reason for the currently poor reputation of psychology is the obstinate belief that we already know what goes on in our mind, and that we can explain why we do what we do. This naïve belief will be overcome by improved communication of empirical findings, and especially of those that go against ingrained folk psychology. It’s not rocket science. It’s a lot harder than that.”
So we still have an enormous mountain to climb, as a species and civilization, if scientists and technologists are to understand what is causing them to drive the pace of evolutionary change at unprecedented exponential rates of acceleration.
To help with this understanding, the first treatise, titled The Principle of Unity, answers three Big Questions of human identity and existence: Who are we?, Where do we come from?, and Where are we going?
The second treatise titled The Theory of Everything, describes in more detail than any of my other writings the evolutionary precursors to Panosophy, outlining the life and work of the comparatively few people who have sought to integrate all knowledge into a coherent whole, the Great Dream of humanity. This treatise also contains more information on the history of mathematics than my other writings.
The third treatise, which I plan to publish as a book, is titled The Four Spheres, these being Numinosphere, noosphere, biosphere, and hylosphere, corresponding in reverse order to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s four stages of evolution: physical, biological, mental, and spiritual.
The fourth treatise, also planned as a book, is titled Through Evolution’s Accumulation Point.
