Global consciousness leap

“The human world is in the process of freeing itself from ancient dogma’s and manipulation.

It is becoming a value driven global community of talented individuals, working together on the challenge of sustainable human progress.

We call this the quantum leap of our consciousness and togetherness. It happens in a relatively short period of time that will always be remembered throughout the future history of humankind.

The consciousness leap is caused by awareness, extended global knowledge development, personal suffering, observation of suffering of others with the voluntary and compulsory transformation of our institutional structures into facilitating organisations. It is a switch from negative to positive synchronization with our surroundings. ”

Secrets of life

On May 14th 2013 I introduced my views on the  musical origins of life. The secrete of living life in an evolutionary, self conscious way, is lectured during my open, public evening colleges in Eindhoven. I did this today together with opera singer Irma Lohman, whose talent could be used to prove my points on how life really is and how we can perceive and use it once aware.

Listen here to her voice (I don’t know how to love him)

The next few blogs will introduce these views  to you. They will of course be received as usual by some with the traditional amount of skepticism and refusal influenced also by the opposition from the reigning dogma’s that surround us and that educate us every day. In a way we live still in a world in which the “Earth is flat and the center of the universe” according to the ruling self interests of old remaining hierarchies. These old dogma’s and their institutionalized protectors are gradually disappearing into history, sometimes replaced with new ones. They all leave us behind with the atrocities of their commitment to a lie out of powerful self interest. It shows how we evolved over time as a species through a continuous learning process, combating our own, self imposed monsters in our quest for the universal truth and understanding.

You may also find that the route to absolute freedom comes with new responsibilities and an inner and outer confrontation with old beliefs that have been “sold” to us as sacred without dispute, often at the expense of doom and punishment. It is up to you to determine whether you are ready for this challenging.

Breaking loose gives freedom but also new responsibilities

Breaking loose gives freedom but also new responsibilities

I will deal with:

  • The origin of life
  • Harmonic relationships
  • Each of the four phases of life
  • Evolution
  • Current crises and their evolutionary solutions
  • Our own evolutionary state, risks and opportunities
  • Life phases and education

I have decided to do this through this blog in order to be able to connect to multimedia on the web for the re-enforcement of my messages. The blog also offers the possibility for you to reflect back. 

We are facing a quantum leap that for the individual is an intellectual choice and for society an unprecedented evolutionary challenge and significant historical leap forward.

Enjoy!

Europeans are not Euros

Since the introduction of the single European currency about 10 years ago we are now “saving” European countries one after the other from financial disaster. As this process of salvaging is going on we see the poverty and despair rise in the entire European community, not just in the countries “saved” but also in all the others. As it seems now the Euro is living a billionaire’s life of its own with a powerful group of people who believe that centralized banking and money based governance are the key to the stability of Europe. Meanwhile we see the system collapse in front of our eyes with the incompetence of those so called leaders to reinstate stability, no matter how hard they try. We also see the blind dependence of all people of an entire continent on the availability of the Euro for the fulfillment of their daily needs. Without the necessary personal Euros chaos enters the individuals life. But access to Euros is increasingly difficult even though the billions flow from here to there. At individual level nothing of this money can be seen and even worse, people are expected to contribute to giant evaporation of wealth through their saving and extra taxes. The argument of politicians is that the ones that enjoyed the boom of speculation should now pay for the disaster. The problem is in this argument that the general crowd has no clue what happened above their heads in macro economics and have no clue either why their lives have suddenly entered in hell with debts, obligations, lack of jobs and a sense of guilt that we are all to blame. Meanwhile the real criminals that thought this over and expanded it to proportions beyond control remain gathering interests and bonuses as if nothing has happened. Two worlds have appeared, the sucked and the suckers. The Europeans and the Euro managers, not just the managers of today, the managers of the last 4 decades. They are all to blame one by one. The general public can be blamed for their lack of awareness and blind following the herd. Most people don’t even know what economics is and went along with hard work to pay mortgages for the house of their dreams and a daily living. They were proud if they could have a bit of luxury and believed it was achieved by labor, not theft. So much looked and felt “normal” because the manipulating managers made it look and feel that way. The theft of these people was not just money over debt and taxes. They robed us from our dignity, morality and ethics making believe that we did alright. The wake up call reaches the Europeans hard but between waking up and understanding there is a large and complex process that not everyone will follow. People do not want to understand, they want their daily bread and butter, a house to live in and the sense of personal achievement that now is being taken away. People who worked hard to pay their monthly fees now see their perceived property being taken away after 25 years of payment out of 30. With just 5 years to go it is immoral and without any respect to apply the laws of the money driven system instead of the universal laws of human and natural ethics. The same happens with everything that surrounds us. What do the Europeans do now that we realize that we are not the Euro? It is not a financial discussion anymore but one of human ethics, imposed dependence and right of independence, freedom of self determination and self sufficiency, morality of debt and guilt, manipulation of the unaware and criminality against humankind.

We are facing a huge historical step, a quantum leap for humankind, in which the clash between good and evil will open us to a new society. To see this we need to step back into history. We will then understand the future and also what needs to be done today.

Europeans
Despite the fact that we discovered the same genetic origins as a single human species we created Europe as a patchwork of conflicting human tribes around the fertile river deltas of this continent, rich in natural resources s.a. sweet water, land for agriculture and animal farming. The continent is also 3/5 surrounded by sea, making trade and fishing another source of development of societies. Water in general has been the motor of societal development. Historic confrontations between growing and migrating groups of people in search for stability and prosperity shaped our history.

The local climate, resources and geographical location of the Mediterranean showed the rise of our very first so called “civilizations”. According to our current standards of diplomacy and growing awareness around ethics we would most certainly disapprove of the way these societies evolved, grew and nurtured themselves through plundering and warfare. Even their political differences were settled with intrigues and murder. The word “civilized” refers more to the political debate and development of democracies than the way abundance or power was achieved over the back of others. The Roman empire may inspire us still in many ways but we would certainly not want to reinstate its speculative working principles. Still our current systems of laws and constitutions are based on the heritage from that particular era. And they cause the same problems today as the ones that finally ended the Roman empire. It is time for new constitutions, not based on the human having but on the human being.

The Europeans are people that developed multiple cultures around their unique geographical locations, with their own language, manners and beliefs. The many conflicts have also taught the people to become tolerant to differences and use these in a social interaction that benefits the entire European community. The Europeans see the local differences generally as a virtue not a threat. For thousands of years we fought our shortages and traded our surpluses. The rise of the Catholic church in the middle of the Roman collapse has become a symbol of the power of morality versus immorality that developed side by side on the continent. Each had its own infrastructure and hierarchy and both dealt in a similar currency: debt and guilt. This duality has both split and united the cultures in cycles of dominance and crises. Despite the periods of violence and attempts to piece together a single European unity the true identity of Europe is based on diversity in the European commonality. We are all equal yet totally different. It has been our continuous inner conflict to deal with this apparent paradox until we discover that it is not a paradox at all but a virtue of unity. It is like a field of summer flowers that is only a field of summer flowers because of the beautiful diversity of its colorful population.

Influences from outside Europe
Certain influences from outside Europe try to disturb the flower-bed. This should of course be no problem if these influences contribute to the diversity and stability, even in its flexible changes over time. Yet these influences, being financial (American consumer economics and single currency), religious (Islam) or natural (new flora and fauna), disturb at first but finally adjust to these European origins and roots too. As these foreign influences try change the nature of Europe the deeply rooted character of Europeans reacts back to try again find harmony and balance in its diversity. Europe is in climate, geography and history different from America, Middle East, China, Russia, etc. You cannot unify what has always been a kaleidoscope or put old religious norms and rules in that have long before already been suffered, dealt with and eliminated by this community. Not because these norms are wrong in its abstraction but because they do not fit the historical and geographical evolutionary context anymore of this part of the world. To survive and create a sustainable human context the lessons from our local history can not just be eliminated because of some over flying success story from elsewhere. Influences from outside Europe temporarily disturb our community and may create a crisis but in the end a richer, stronger Europe comes out. It has absorbed the influences, learned to take the best out of it and integrate it all in an evolutionary step forward using the intrinsic flexibility and stability of this multicultural adaptive and experienced population. Today the disturbance is very large and the impact extreme but the European reaction will be equivalent.

Single currency
A single currency was copied from the American dollar that had grown strong in a unified open consumer market of 220 million people last century. It was the American recipe for success and made American industries and risk driven capitalist entrepreneurship extremely successful world wide. The large unified home market provided a rapid commercial basis for initial growth that could back the global proposition and rapid expansion. The Americans became true artists in globalized business processes. Many American local business gurus developed leadership and marketing tools around it trying to explain and coach the working of this powerful functioning. They were of course popular also elsewhere.

Europe was lagging behind because of its patchwork of countries, borders, currencies, local protectives rules, etc. The American way seemed lucrative and dominant, it demanded a new competitive mindset of Europe. Instead of being creative with the historical basis of the Europeans, the local politicians adopted the American way. Europe had to become a single open market fast too, larger than the USA, with an equivalent consumer driven, money based system and a single currency. What the USA had done we would do bigger and better. It was successfully initialized by the creation of the Benelux. Soon it expanded across the continent in Euro based steps, not based on Europeans that needed to adjust too to this new Europe of financial speculation and consumption.

Now we see that Europe cannot be standardized into generalized terms such as a single value system. The single currency that had worked so well for America is disastrous for Europe and in competition eventually also for America. The open markets are excellent for the traditional interaction between local cultures and the single currency makes it easier. But the true value creation, that made each region of Europe strong and potentially unique in its positioning, was eliminated through standardization and centralization. Europeans need their differences to be strong together. The unification took the attention away from value creation and placed it on speculation. This slowly separated the financial world from the real world. Self sufficiency of the past became a financial dependence of today. Value creation based on local virtues became value evaporation due to speculation and generalized optimalizations around debt systems. Consumption became the key, standardized across all human cultures, making every human being an eating puppet in the standardize system of the Euro. The Euro rules, not the European.

China benefited when all big industries started manufacturing in the East. Low wages were key in de speculative process for growth in volume of consumption. Local added value in the consuming countries was based on logistic and retail processes with tax on the consumer end. A larger local content was needed in macro economics. Risk avoidance in Europe and risk taking in America both discovered the real estate market to grow the local financial economies by creating shortages and compensate it with a flexible debt system through liberated banking. Housing and consumption became the Euro world of debt with energy as power position to connect it all together. The financial bubbles were created through a flexible banking system with a tax collateral over the speculative future of unlimited financial growth. Now all Europeans had become the same in the Euro world, a bank account and social security number to exchange loyalty to the Euro through labor for food and housing through money. The human being had become hostage of the organized human having.

Internet fueled in America still some speculative volume business opportunities with wizzkids that created genuine value such as Google, YouTube, Facebook and the rest of social media. That was the only remains left of an American culture of creativity and value creation that had made the continent so powerful. Even Apple noticed that their creativity was cashed in China where the final value was created through labor in manufacturing.

Apart from those remaining value creations, the focus on creativity had disappeared from all cultures. All that was left were decades of value destruction in favor money, private banking and growing national debts to keep consumption going.

The cannot society
The financial debt imposed on the population also increased the bureaucracy needed to get it back. At the same time the consequences of a consumer driven society became evident in the growing secondary economies on health care, police. Pollution, illness, behavior disorder etc became a burden in all societies and grew in costs faster than the benefits of consumption. New creative vultures appeared in the immorality of societies, addressing the secondary economies of consequences. Pharmaceutical industries started the lobby to create public dependence through money based lawful impositions. Self sufficiency in nature based health exchanged into manipulated scientific pharmaceutical services with Euro interests. The extreme costs of the consequence driven economies tend to become dominant in all society. Health care has become another instrument of power over people with a pure financial speculative focus. Ethics, morality and trust evaporates. People have no choice anymore. The system wants cash no matter what and eliminates any initiatives that step out of the system. We have entered the “cannot, may not society” where every step and actions is valued against financial prosperity and taxability. A large control system is in place to manage society and eliminate leadership. Meanwhile humankind gets sicker and sicker in many aspects creating a unified Euro with unified Euro dependent Europeans. The European flower bed for once looks the same. All weak flowers with the head down, fearful, sick and in debt, affected by the Euro virus of system greed that sucks life out of them.

What comes next
We already see many reactions in the flower bed. Americans get back into their culture of speculative freedom and discover “sustainability” as a new impulse for local value creation, away from poverty. The nation is still developing debts and intents to exert further system power by creating health care systems instead of providing a healthy environment. The system and the people are not the same anymore, not even in America. But America has not reached yet the point of ethical constitutional dispute, Europe has. Our awareness has reached a point of culmination thanks to the American external capitalist influence. The undercurrent of the medieval religious discussion of the islam from the middle east is doing the rest. We are reminded again of the struggles we had ourselves in the Christian world and the atrocities that we organized in name of God for the sake of power and control. Also this is opening up the evolutionary step of morality and ethics, not by eliminating religions from our lives but placing them in the right learning perspective. It is a final quest for understanding our external and inner securities by believing in our holistic selves as part of a universe of matter, energy and conscious life.

In Europe we observe that smaller communities step out of the Euro and create local value systems of their own. Europeans discover again their own authentic nature and when the wake-up call reaches their awareness the reactions are two fold: aversion against the immorality of the Euro system and a search for ethical dignity again of European sustainable human progress. The flower bed is showing again single flowers in diversity rising up and spreading seeds of a new society. While the ethical incompetent forcefully try to uphold the dying system a new public discussion arises about constitutional ethics and moral structuring of societies. The power is building up. Europeans are not the Euro because of the difference between the power of human awareness when it awakens against the human greed that systemized our lives. Europeans want an acceptable life and future not an unacceptable Euro and past. This difference will result in a new tough step in human evolution that will shape a new Europe with a new European constitution based on diversity and high level human ethics through holistic conscience. This society is based on universal truths that we discover and adopt together, and which eventually reach out to all corners of the universe. The human being, starting with the European, will become dominant over its Euros ( Dollar, Yen or RMDs), whatever the currency will then mean in terms of true human values.

Social innovation and paradigm shift

In times of crisis, such as a recession or a depression, people talk about social innovation a lot. Other words that are being heard are civilian participation, social responsibility, etc. In fact, what we see happening is that the old dominant institutional world is calling out for help. When we look at my blog about the Kondratieff sinus we see that at the peak of an economic hype the conservative dominance of risk avoiding governance is blocking all kinds of social innovation. When the people are happy, get what they want, have nothing to complain about, few stand up to become creative with a desire for change. The social cash cow of conservatism in a peak economy is not the best basis to introduce social innovation. If you would want to do that you would need the Otto Scharmer U-Theory to simulate chaos and get people to become artificially creative. It is not the same as a genuine crisis.

A depression seems to get the best out of people in terms of adding true and lasting value to their community, especially when it collapses. Now why is that? There are a few reasons to mention:

1. Creativity needs stimulus

When a communities enters a recession is wakes people up to look at their own reality in a different way. Previously wealth was a matter of fact, now it is not anymore. Old securities disappear and people need to find access to new ones. They are obliged to think, triggered by their intense emotions. Fear for shortages, the pain of loosing previous wellness, the need to find a way out of chaos, the worries about their operational wellness, it all opens up peoples mind to change. It triggers a whole series of reactions, from complaints, aggression, suicide, etc, but also a boost of creativity in many.

2. Change needs to be “different”

In a recession people tend to do the same things over and over again to try to regain their old securities. They do not want to acknowledge that the crisis is caused because the “old ways” simply have become obsolete. You can’t take them for granted anymore, not matter how well they worked in society, business or family life before.  When the markets shrinks one needs to adjust, not in the shrinking but bailing out by being different. When an economic peak gets people to copy each other to benefit from wealth without any new creations, a dip gets them confronted in competition. It shakes up their similarities and stimulates the search for renewed uniqueness. Pioneers appear who propose new things and a sense of social innovation invades the surroundings. This stimulates others to do the same.

3. Change needs freedom

When you wake up at 7 in the morning to start the day, bringing the kids to school, go to work, worry about the bills, the shopping, the taxes and a personal career, to get back home at 18.30 tired, feed the children, take them to bed, crash on the sofa and watch the telly……. Then you have little time or interest to even think of social innovation or whatever. Your world turns around your daily responsibilities and that is type of worldview you have.

When however one has enough freedom it is much easier to find inner strength to overcome the burden of a daily routine and become creative. Need combined with available time gets people to experiment with innovation. Some do this by discovering new abilities or pick up old forgotten talents (they start to act, dans, sing, play a musical instrument, paint). Others start doing voluntary works and start meeting totally different people than before. New ideas are born, some are actually tried our and can even flourish. In freedom people disconnect from old structures and mingle with new connections, developing new communities and change happens organically.

4. Innovation needs to be seen

During peaks of abundance there are also people who have a creative nature and develop social innovations. They are however hardly visible because no one seems to be on the look out for inspiration. When a recession wakes up people the sensitivity for innovation grows and all kinds of inspiring novelty get the chance to be highlighted or “discovered” for public enlargement. Someone who has the creative urge to create innovation may lack the managerial leadership to outgrow it to make it a new social standard. The interaction of an institutional world in crisis with a new dynamic world of creativity in purpose driven freedom can boost any novelty to huge proportions. Visibility of inspiring innovations is hence a double sided phenomena. On the one hand it is the creativity of social innovation boosted by a recession that wants to be seen, and on the other, the open attention of crumbling institutions that need innovation fast to renew their expectations for survival.

Paradigm shift

A paradigm shift is not the same as social innovation. Can social innovation produce a paradigm shift? Or does a paradigm shift cause social innovation?

A paradigm is defined to be “a specific way of looking at a reality, determining the way one makes decisions and acts in accordance”. This means automatically that there are different ways of looking at a reality, challenging the way people make their decisions. In our current social paradigm the consumer based capitalist economy has a dominant position, determining the way governments, business, public in general, institutions, etc interact. Social innovation at an individual level generally may change the texture and coloring of the paradigm but will not change this overall paradigm.

So when we address the issue of climate change, global warming, global pollution, new possible global diseases, etc and attribute this to the dominant paradigm then social innovation within the reigning paradigm may address these issues from a consequences point of view but will not solve them from a cause point of view. To do that a paradigm shift is needed.

Sustainocracy is a paradigm shift

Sustainocracy was idealistically conceived when I decided that I did not want to pass the old paradigm on to my children because of the negative consequences it causes. Of course I did appreciate the positive elements of this paradigm but realized that we had reached a point that the balance had tipped over to the accumulation of negative effects, creating permanent instability also at the positive end. So in a way my decision early in the 2000’s was a social innovation. Back then my surroundings had no desperate feeling of a crisis yet even though the signs were abundantly present already. The establishment was still confident that change could be done from within the reigning paradigm. In fact, the established power structures were also an inherent piece of that paradigm and gained their existence from it. It was not up to them to challenge their reason to be. The only one that could challenge the paradigm is the one who has eyes to see and awareness to distinguish between realities. And that is the human being itself, because we are the ones that create our instruments, even if we allow them to reign us for a while. We have come to point that we need to redefine the usages and positioning of those instruments. And that is what we do in Sustainocracy. We respect the instruments as human creations and reposition them around a new paradigm in which the human being is placed at the center of sustainable human progression, not the financial systems.

With this simple change in mindset and observing the world, the world itself learns to see itself differently and starts to reshuffle their power positions accordingly. Slowly the two paradigms become visible to everyone and so does the choice everyone has. Social innovation then gets an entirely new dimension that changes everything simply because of the way we look at things. We live in a unique time-era in which we see a new paradigm arise, co-exist with an old one for a while, interacting probably with certain conflicts and eventually take over. People in next generations will read about this era in their history books but will look at society from that new dominant paradigm without the challenging adventure of living through the transformation, or even playing part in defining it. This era is therefor unique in the history of humankind and referred to by me and some others as “the quantum leap in human evolution”.

Open up your mind and be part of it. It is exciting, challenging and rewarding to be a pioneer of a new world.

-Belief- is essential for progress

Why don’t politicians support the transformation of society? Why do banks not change their bonus culture? Why do people go to church when they encounter a crisis?

When I try to get overall scientific, business, political or financial support for the transformation of human society into a state of sustainable progress (referred to as the Global Shift) I do not get it. Why? All the crises in the Western world seem to cry out for change yet people only focus to get more of the same. New economies develop based on those that are now in crisis hence knowingly develop their own problems. Why? Why are all these human structures so reluctant to change and destined to repeat their mistakes over and over again? Because all these institutions are not based on “belief”.

It is necessary to be a believer to open up for new realities and hence accept and even conduct progress through the acceptance of change. To understand what I am saying we need to first define “belief”. According Wikipedia belief is:

Belief is the psychological state in which an individual holds a proposition or premise to be true.”

This definition refers to a “psychological state”, not a proven truth, hence it is subjective to the individual. What do you believe that is true? Proven truth or suspected truth? We tend to accept only what is touchable or commonly accepted as truth. A believer tends to visualize a truth that does not exist yet in the physical or proven world. All our current human surroundings are organized in complex human structures, institutions. These are known, hence true. Anything else, that is not yet included in the human organizational structures is hence unknown and does therefor not exist.

Or it exists when you believe it exists, or could get to exist. True believers open up to things that do not exist yet in our regular life. Everyone who has a hired position inside an institution can only sustain what is known and stops believing. If one would believe he/she would probably question what is served. The only option such people, even so called world leaders, have is to keep in place what has been organized, because it is known. Even when it is in crisis. If they are visionary and see the problems they cause by keeping up the unsustainable they would have to step out of the system to change it. But then they loose their position of power.

From an operational point of view this is logical simply because every human institution is a structure with a particular purpose. It would only change if the purpose of the structure would change or when it goes broke. If those institutions are as significance as a political organization, a financial system of power or a business monopoly, everything will be done to avoid its collapse, not by changing it but by maintaining it, no matter what.

One could expect that common sense would prevail when we see the suffering of so many people caused by this lack of flexibility. But common sense is only based on the same knowledge that is commonly accepted as truth, hence within the same dynamics as where the problems occur.

Science does not help

If we look at the definition of belief why would science then not be a believer? Doesn’t science believe in its own studies to obtain progress in knowledge? Of course it does and that is also the essence of the difference. Science is a non-believer because it looks for proof through commonly, already accepted knowledge. Science does not want to “belief”, it wants to “know”. This interesting paradox of science is that it is continuously searching for knowledge so needs to accept belief to understand that it still has a long way to go to accumulate all knowledge. We still do not know everything. This automatically means that science needs to accept that new knowledge can dispute any old knowledge. We can therefore know for sure that all knowledge is only believed to be true until is proven not to. A crisis is not enough to prove something wrong. Only something different would prove something else to be more truthful. The problem we face is that science does not easily accept this scientific belief. It claims the truth by accepting proof and then holds on to it. If you do so you block yourself from the possibility that what was proven true can also be proven untrue in time. So science accepts the state of belief to motivate the search for knowledge through guided research but does not accept belief to question knowledge that has been accepted as truthful. Science therefor tends to try to prove the known and tends to avoid the unknown. In the process of providing proof to the known we stumble across new knowledge to be proven. Science seems only to advance by further analyzing the known. It is fixed to a particular track. This means that in essence science is not a believer, just a proof provider to perceived knowledge.

So for change we cannot rely on science and hence find that universities only teach science but not belief or the potential of change. They can’t, even if intellectuals inside the university suspect new tracks of knowledge they find difficulties in their institutions to support deviation to the unknown. Universities depend on the resources provided by the structures that do not belief and hence serve the known, not the unknown. Only a very small part of research funds are invested in finding new realities and these even need to be covered up by arguments that the common structures can understand and support.

The world of statistics

Business and politics do not even worry about belief. They reason from the influence of the masses of people either by exerting power on them or by offering external securities in the shape of goods. There is only one certainty and that is the one of proven support in the shape of votes. In essence any purchase is a commercial vote too. From that point of view all of the world of politics and business is measurable and conducted through statistics rather than belief. The statistics are translated into a standardized system of values, often called money. Financial systems manage money and hence manage statistics, nothing else. By speculating with shortages the statistics move and become measurable instruments of economies that live eventually a virtual life on its own without considering the human being or our natural universe itself. In fact, the way statistics move through artificial intervention of politicians and business people have created a simulated reality that interacts with our true reality and is even perceived to be real through the importance we give to money and material valuable. But it is all fake, even the poverty we see around us is fake simply because the statistics of our robotized systems do not allow people to create a new, self sufficient reality.

Belief means acceptance of change

None of the above provides any true progress because it is all based on commonly accepted truth and knowledge, but no belief in alternatives, simply because they do exist yet. That is why the quantum leap of human evolution will surprise us as it comes. When it happens it will extensively be studied by scientists and even open up new channels of knowledge development, just like financial analysts now know why the credit crisis occurred but back then never saw it coming.

Becoming a believer

People in a state of crisis experience the lack of support of the commonly accepted truth of the obsolete systems but cannot embrace change yet because it does not exist yet. They experience a crisis because securities are falling apart and are not replaced by new ones. They are challenged to think for themselves and accept change by stepping out of the structures in crisis and start deciding for themselves. Since this is extremely difficult for individuals who have taken the old truth for granted they tend to go to church and ask for a miracle. In reality people ask the universe to react by creating a renewal of the universal truth. They ask God but in fact they ask themselves to accept change. We are so used to external securities that we have learned to distrust our selves. People in search for spirituality are opening up for renewal of their faith in humankind and especially in themselves. They experience suddenly the warmth of friendship and social support, self leadership and significance. They become believers, not just in God, but especially in themselves.

I can describe the Global Shift, the transformation of humankind, and find opposition from all common human structures. If it does not exist it is not true. People fight collapse of existing systems simply because they do not have “belief” in letting go. The old systems are known, scientifically analysed and hence true. The new systems are in the world of beliefs without and proof of truth and hence without any guarantee for security. That is also why true progress is made by people who are only considered a genius when reality changes, proving them right in hindsight. Meanwhile they are always seen as a risk to the established truth and crazy, weird or clowns, despised by the systems and laughed at by the masses.

But only believers are truly progressive. They are prepared to see the invisible, to accept that truth is relative to our common acceptance but not at all reliable. Believers accept that other realities exist and set out to find them. They accept to be despised by the masses and ridiculed by the knowledgeable realizing that all those who react that way are locked up in their own prison of disbelief and a reality conditioned by their own limitations.

Even religious believers tend to create dogma’s around the unknown to enable to speak in name of God by creating limitations proper to the human world of “knowledge” rather than abundance of the miracle of the Universe and our adventure as a true believer in progress.  If we belief in God we should accept the unknown as our evolutionary challenge to progress and science as simplified form of registering perceived truths until they prove wrong or reconfirmed.  We are getting to a point that sustainable progress does not accept anymore virtual statistics as a reality nor scientific proof as absolute truth of knowledge.

Soon we enter an era (the quantum leap) where we accept the unknown as the only constant for our progress. The amount of crisis of the world of knowledge and statistics will be so big that the world will turn around believers who show a new reality, the reality of a humankind based on spirituality, on the belief in our evolutionary quest and eternity. Science will not be proof anymore of knowledge but a reflection of our progress by accepting the stepping up of our adventure by challenging knowledge against the unknown.

When we do that business, finance and politics will cease to exist because they will not be necessary anymore as fragmented human institutions. They will transform into key area of responsibility and related competences that interact to provide sustainable progress by addressing the unknown on a continuous basis. When that has happened we will refer to this a the quantum leap and even give it a scientific understanding leaving it in out past as a significant moment in time when humankind opened up to its own universal destiny.

Sustainable progress is hence assured by believers.
