VISION

Weaving Unity is an emerging vision and design proposal intended to support the transition of national and global civilization into a new era of enlightened cooperation and shared understanding.

The design is based on fundamental principles of negotiated co-creative agreement. It proposes the development of a global-scale network project for bringing together many independent or disjointed elements and connecting them together into single "integral" framework.

The project is grounded in the ancient vision of the One, or Oneness, as found in philosophy, metaphysics, spirituality and religion. This traditional understanding is buttressed and supported by new interpretations arising in mathematics, cognitive psychology and computer science.

We are considering:

  • A common foundation for science, humanism, spirituality, semantics and mathematics.
  • An integral framework for civilization.
  • A new approach to democracy and collective self-governance, organized on the internet and based on dialogue in the context of the One.

We believe that today there is a rising global movement tending to interconnect and fuse together these elements, and we see the Weaving Unity project as part of that movement and helping to support it.

Our primary objectives:

  • Create a grounded common foundation for building shared understanding and agreement across traditions and disciplines and cultures and sectors.
  • Initiate the development of working network connections and collaborative systems for activating and refining this design.
  • Help facilitate the emergence of a rising spirit of unity recognized across all cultures and sectors.

Technical elements:

  • Develop a suite of new ideas in epistemology and the philosophy of mathematics, intended to help bridge the traditional divide between quantitative and qualitative concepts.
  • Explore and develop holistic and inclusive methods for collective decision-making.
  • Construct internet tools and methods to support connection, dialogue, negotiation and agreement, among organizations and people on any issue of mutual concern.

Applications:

  • Help weave enlightened understanding across critical divisions in the world today.
  • Nurture the emergence of enlightened culture at all levels of scale, from local to global.
  • Support a new vision of collaborative and co-creative democracy grounded in the Whole.
