Mapping the Cosmos

To intelligently manage our business affairs with full consciousness of what we are doing, we need to develop a conceptual model of our mapmaking activities, making explicit the way that we form concepts and organize our ideas.

Rather surprisingly, this is not a system of thought that is described in any existing book on psychology, philosophy, or education. For thousands of years, we humans have been creating conceptual models or mental images and pictures of our inner and outer worlds with little cognitive understanding of the psychodynamic processes that guide our learning.

To correct this critical situation, these few pages outline how evolution can help us map the Cosmos, including the mapmaking process in the territory being mapped, rather like a television camera filming itself filming. Evolution thereby becomes fully conscious of itself within us, invoking our Self-reflective Intelligence, the Divine quality that distinguishes humans from the other animals and machines, like computers.

A 20-page description of this commonsensical art and science of thought and consciousness is available as ‘Integral Relational Logic’. To give some historical background to IRL, you are welcome to download the most recent 250-page exposition: The Theory of Everything: Unifying Polarizing Opposites in Nondual Wholeness.

A full exposition is available as Part I of the 1300-page trilogy on Wholeness: The Union of All Opposites, titled Integral Relational Logic.
