Humankind has reached a state of development in
which old modes of thinking and behaving threaten to destroy human
civilisation. The aim of this human development and poverty feature
of The new Paradigm Iournal is to make a diagnosis and look at the
causes before defining possible solutions which involves the creation
of a new paradigm integrating spirituality and science.
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 onside, 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
At the beginning of the 21st century the world now finds itself
teetering on the brink of what some would call holy war or a clash
of civilizations divided along spiritual lines. Of course, international
politics and policies of economic globalization make everything
much more complicated than that, but the fundamental human predisposition
for conflict and separation remains firmly established.
That is why a spirituality of oneness would be such an extraordinary
leap forward in human thinking.
The big difference between our age and any previous
times when new spiritual ideas surfaced, is that we are now experiencing
the interconnected effect of spirituality with ecology and technology.
Most people who give serious thought to our existential predicament
know that we face a big turn around in how we live together on the
planet.That big turning will not be inspired by spirituality alone,
but by its integration with ecology and technology-comprising three
pillars of transformation.
The new spirituality will be informed by ,as well
as inform new technology, both being mediated by a deeper appreciation
of ecology. All three forces acting together have the potential
to produce a transformation of life on the planet greater than any
so far recorded in human history and coming faster than anything
humanity has previously experienced.

We need a substantially new manner of thinking
and a massive change in consciousness if we are as a species to
Einstein, made this quote regarding a substantially
new manner of thinking. Vlakav Havel made the quote - a massive
change of consciousness.
The new manner of thinking is based on the
intuitive capacity of the brain and was expressed in the book by
Marilyn Ferguson in the 1960s called the Aquarium Conspiracy. In
this book, she contrasted the logical parochial, materialistic positivist
reductive linear way of thinking with the more encompassing holistic
intuitive, creative and all-inclusive wave thinking, which has since
been called the new paradigm.
The new way of thinking is also being stimulated
by advances in the science of consciousness and an understanding
that psi, Telepathy, Psychokinesis and remote viewing are now more
evidence based, then double-blind drug trials in medicine.
Since 1905, when Einstein released his first
papers on quantum mechanics, the science of physics, biology. Life
sciences and medical science have been based on a new order of understanding
regarding the nature of existence.
What this means is that the predominant
process by which information is transmitted and received within
the universe and within the human body is based on energy and waveforms,
rather than material forms.
In 1982, Alain Aspect showed how If two
electrons are paired then no matter where they are in the universe,If
one changes, their spin then the other one will change instantaneously.
This kind of process is called entanglement.
This means that everything in the universe is basically entangled
and connected. Not only on a micro scale, but also on the Macro
This indeed is the basis for philosophy of oneness.
Classical physics is based on reality, strict
causality and locality in terms of time and space.
Quantum physics, sees reality, as transcending time and space and
causality is no longer the strict cause and effect that we see around
us, as it is quantum entangled and instantaneous.
One of the greatest commitments of Albert
Einstein was to see the universe as one seamless whole and he felt
that physics had to in some way reflect that. In deep experiences
of meditation and high experiences of transcendental bliss, time
seems to stand still and the illusion of separation and isolation
that human beings feel seems to melt away into a sense of seamless
expression of connectedness in the sense that we are all in a giant
ocean of wholeness and oneness.
This sense of separation and yet connectedness
that human beings have, is a paradox. It is the way the perssimon
fruit is sour and yet turns sweet in the sun or the way the element
of light can be a proton or particle and a waveform at the same
Perhaps this is the key to localised and non localised
consciousness which we all experience at times.
There are also according to Larry Dossey. Editor
of the journal, Alternative Therapies to Health and Medicine, interpersonal,
non local, consciousness mediated events through which one individual
can influence another individuals health. He talks of an extended
model of consciousness and interpersonal influence.
The mystic paradox is to hold the vision of oneness
even though things appear separate and it is based on the heart.

has compared love to the fundamental attractive process comparing
love and loving to the relationship which occurs in all systems.
He compares love to gravity seeing it as the glue that holds the
universe together. To go one step further we may call it the enlightened
law that integrates all universes and from which all phenomena derive.
When we try and impose our knowledge, information
and preconceptions on ourselves and our connection with the universal
consciousness, we impose our own ideas of what it is and therefore
distance ourselves from it even further. Thus we constantly objectify
this knowledge rather than become part of it. Perhaps the only way
we can become part of this biological synthesis which is universal
intelligence or divinity or consciousness or the sacred is to take
that leap of faith into the unknown or into the very essence of
who we are namely - self actualised human beings.
The journey to this authentic self is the crossing
of this final frontier to the unknown potentials of the mind of
As human beings we are able to access this understanding
and wisdom. In fact this understanding and wisdom is common to all
of us and is a groundwork to our authentic selves. By reaching into
this level of being and being open to the unknowable, we are able
to make new causes.
By being in the context of this ground and realising
that we are not our stories and other content of thought or a set
pattern of desires and thoughts we become aware that our existence
and authenticity is based on the context of being from which we
can choose to live and realise our dreams. At the same time our
context of being gives us the understanding that we and all other
human beings and sentience are part of the omnipresent realm of
By having the opportunity to be at cause, this
allows us the responsibility to use cosmic imagination to invent
new meanings. Use of words then becomes a measure of integrity and
an opportunity for manifestation. This is further reinforced when
we involve others in our declaration of fulfillment of the self
and others around us in order to create a more integral world free
from self imposed limitations.
These limitations have been variously described
as the three poisons of anger, greed and stupidity in Buddhism,
the 'id' of Freud, the character structure of the psychic agency
of the family (Erich Fromm) and the genetic or biological basis
of inherited characteristics.
The concept here is that the alignment with the
truth of the authentic self melts away sufferings like dew in the

The latest science shows that our DNA is purely
an blueprint, which we can modify--- that is, we can change its
expression. It has been found in some instances that environmental
circumstances can change DNA.
John Cairns of the Harvard School of Public Health
in Boston set out to test the dogma that mutations occur at the
same rate whether or not they provided an advantage, . Cairns examined
bacteria that were deficient in their ability to utilise the milk
sugar lactose. When he exposed these bacteria to conditions in which
lactose was the only food source, they starved. The cells did not
die but instead went into a suspended animation state, called dormancy.
Dormancy was a well-known phenomenon so Cairns was not surprised
to find that his bacteria managed to survive in this state for many
weeks. What did come as a surprise was the discovery that, after
a lag period of a day or two, several of his bacterial cells managed
to grow and replicate. These replicating cells had acquired a mutation
that allowed them to feed on the lactose. What was even more surprising
was his observation that the cells only acquired these lactose-eating
mutations when lactose was available. Cairn's observations were
published in 1988 in the prestigious science journal Nature. If
the bacteria can change their DNA in respond to changing is environmental
situations, what can we as human beings do with our conscious minds.
The Institute of HeartMath® is a recognized
global leader in researching the critical link among emotions, heart-brain
communication and cognitive function. The HeartMath model proposes
that coherent energy structures exist in the quantum vacuum, and
these structures are organized according to principles of quantum
holography and form "holographic blueprints" that serve
to maintain and evolve the organization of biological and physical
structures. These structures project an epigenetic information field
that guides cell organization and sets the boundaries for an organism's
ability to vary in its physical, mental, and emotional domains.
The term epigenetics, as used here, refers to the science that studies
how the development, functioning, and evolution of biological systems
are influenced by forces operating outside the primary DNA sequence
of the genome (i.e., intracellular, environmental, and energetic

of consciousness, a basic philosophy and metaphysics of life, which
is completely at variance with the Victorian ideal of survival of

with everything else. We exist upon and within an ocean of life,

The New Paradigm Journal deplores the cultivation
of greed and consumerism at the expense of a rapid deteriorating
environment and biodiversity extinction. Economic rationalism is
intimately connected with the major problems in this world of exclusion,
marginalization and unemployment of groups of people and disempowerment
of many people. Inequity, overpopulation and poverty are all interrelated(see
social determinants of health, reference 1)
The deprived people on the planet, the majority
of whom are in the developing world are exposed to shame and exploitation.
As a result of this, particularly in the developing nations, there
is a backlash of protectionism, nationalism, fanatacism, terrorism
and increasing war. Centralization, consolidation of resources,
building bigger transnational companies, consolidating free trade
areas and unification among groups of nations, is the way the developed
world is trying to protect itself against globalization, and the
exponential growth of world populations, attempting to inure itself
against possible misery and deprivation for its own population.
The principal adverse events which the global
community has to deal with, in the next 100 years, are famine, global
spread of disease, civil war, international wars, competing for
scare resources, civil disorder amongst the haves and have nots,
housing shortages, a highly materialistic ethos and the possibility
of human extinction. Human beings, have already changed the environment
of the planet radically, and caused many bio extinctions of other
species. If current trends continue, the picture will get worse.
The projected extra 6 billion people in the next
100 years (predicted for 2020), will need more room to live and
grow food. If there are more of us there is less room for plants
There is less room for the tropical forests and
the planetary biodiversity of species. Human beings are causing
extinctions at 100 to 10,000 times the natural rate - the greatest
wave of extinctions since the end of the cretaceous period, 65 million
years ago (when the dinosaurs were annihilated). We are now at at
the sixth phase of the of biodiversity extinction.
The aim of the New Paradigm Journal as an open
dialogue is to recognise those initiatives on earth that are in
their own way helping our planet come together in Global Resonance
The core of the dialogue comes from the heart.
The Cat's Eye Nebula
The nature of the dialogue is to create positive
action, which can affect conflict resolution and deal with violence,
nationally and internationally. The key is a strategy to create
action to deliver conscious well being and material well-being to
those people who are seriously compromised in the world through
in equity and through the ravages of war The aim of the strategy
is as enable people to consciously evolve a sense of conscious well
being from the heart
It takes work and effort to see another person
as a reflection of oneself. It also requires. I believe, a new language,
which brings together spirituality and religions towards a transcendent
theme. Global resonance is a term which has within it the aspect
of synergy and harmony. I believe that the new language, which can
integrate consciousness in the context of a changing society is
the language of science. Using terms, which are not emotionally
charged can still bring together and incorporate the basic themes
of all religion and spirituality.
Bruce Lipton tells us that when we look carefully

to understand the underpinnings of societal belief in technology,

is now fanging to the new science of consciousness, which can quite
adequately bring together all the various religions and spiritualities
and ancient wisdom into a comprehensive wholeness, which by its
very nature can lead to conflict resolution and the birthing of
a more tolerant and loving human family.
Don Beck has categorised this process of approaching

Sir Michael Marmot is Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health
and Director of the International Centre for Health and Society
at University College London, as well as Adjunct Professor of Health
and Social Behaviour at the Harvard School of Public Health Sir
Michael Marmot has said that even in the most affluent countries
people who are less well off have substantially shorter life expectancies
than the rich. Professor Marmot for the World Health Organization
defined ten social determinants of health for the World Health Organisation.
The details are given below. What is significant from these determinants
is that stress harms health and people become vulnerable to a wide
range of major conditions including, cardiovascular disease, infections
and diabetes. It has also been shown that social exclusion creates
illness and morbidity. The message is that when people feel loved
and are in jobs that they relate to and feel happy with and are
in communities that are supporting they are likely to live longer
and fulfilling lives. Whereas exclusion within communities and work
and unemployment and lack of social support creates a wide range
of diseases that we see nowadays in our society including depression,
cancer, cardiovascular disease and premature death.
The Ten Social Determinants of Health are:
- Social and economic
circumstances strongly effect health throughout life.
- 2. Stress harms health.
- 3. The effects of early development in the
neo-natal period and infancy last a lifetime.
- 4. Social exclusion creates suffering and morbidity.
- 5. Stress in the workplace increases the risk
- 6. Job security increases health, well-being
and job satisfaction. Unemployment is deleterious to health.
- 7. Social support, friendship, good social
relations and strong supportive networks improve health at home,
work and in the community.
- 8. Addiction to drugs and alcohol is influenced
by social determinants.
- 9. Nutrition is a key determinant of health.
- 10. Transport through the use of walking and
exercise in a sustainable environment enhances health.

I see a global citizen as being self empowering,

unrealized potential that we're not expressing.

at starvation level or on less than two dollars a day in the developing

Ralston Saul, the Canadian philosopher has expressed
his concern that in the Western world, education is dumbed down
for the majority of people. In true democracy, we would expect education
to be a life long process, which would be an integral part of a
In fact, good education is found only in those
educational centers, which service the elite, who are then no longer
in touch with the general ways of society.
This is seen also in universities, where the fragmentation of disciplines,
leads to a complete distinction for example between economics and
ecology, medicine and the living process, education and true creativity.
The whole thing is based on faulty linear thinking, which forgets
the basic nature of who, and what' we are the underpinning of our
conceptions of reality are being changed by the consciousness and
quantum revolution, for example, the old paradigm is Newtonian,
logical, materialistic, objective and reductive where as the new
paradigm is intuitive, holistic, interconnected, energetic.
Whether it is possible because of these vast changes
to really change the world by applying and informing groups of people
to join together in certain ways to create specific kinds of groups
and organizations is debatable. This is because the changes are
already happening and are imprinting themselves in subtle ways on
the consciousness of the masses. We only have to look at the way
quantum physics is affecting technology from digital watches to
microprocessors and computers.
There are so many thousands of groups around the
world many in America who are all trying to spread the message.
For example, there is the Global Consciousness project at Princeton
University with Roger Nelson, there is Be the Change initiated by
Sir John Whitmore which is giving people the information and technology
to spread the message to groups, especially in the Western world.
There is also the enormous rise of Buddhism in Australia which is
the fastest growing religion here. It is not really a religion,
as Professor Balmers of the Department of Religion at Latrobe has
said that Australians want to feel autonomous and empowered and
want to create their own expression of love and compassion without
being dictated to it by some organization. This was exactly the
message that the Dalai Lama was saying when he was out here.
I think the key issue is bringing to politics
the understanding of the new paradigm that everything is connected
and everything maintains itself at the expense of everything else.
We also need to look at non violent ways of dealing with conflict
and addressing issues which are all connected nationally and internationally
such as marginalization and exclusion of peoples, poverty and inequity
in developed and developing world and the archaic destructive pharmaceutical
ubiquitous medical system which is there to make money for pharmaceutical
companies and not to heal people.
We also need to deal with energy and the way we can create non polluting
energy for all people on the planet.
