Prologue
3
What are we to expect now?
  • The world of the Earth's civilisation is in deep
    crisis, beyond recovery
  • This is not only an ecological and economic but
    also a social and spiritual crisis the only
    question is how big and how deep the crisis is
  • The new paradigms required to resolve the crisis
    have already been born but they have not yet
    been approved by traditional science or public
    thinking
  • There is no political or social evolution or wave
    of revolutions in the world yet because the ideas
    and aims are missing for which many people could
    stand up for at the same time
  • The complex and frightening world crises may
    force the approval of new thoughts and the
    serious consideration of new solutions

4
What are we like now? (traditional social gaps)
  • Each continent, nation, country and society can
    be described with the main conflicts and social
    crises
  • 1. The ecologically poor the ecologically rich
  • 2. The poor in income the rich in income
  • 3. The welfare-poor the welfare-rich
  • 4. The socially poor the socially rich
  • 5. The regionally poor the regionally rich
  • 6. The poor in mobility the rich in mobility
  • 7. The poor in family the rich in family
  • 8. Etc.

5
Where are we now? (a Few Prevalent Conflicts)
  • Todays typical social gaps
  • The welfare-poor the welfare-rich (integrated
    social capital differences)
  • The poor in power the rich in power (the
    distribution of integrated power, political or
    democracy capital)
  • The media-poor the media-rich (differences in
    integrated media goods and prestige capitals)
  • The identity-poor the identity-rich
    (differences in integrated trust and relationship
    capitals)
  • Etc.

6
What new crises (social conflicts) will there be?
  • 1. The community-rich the community-poor
  • 2. The information-poor the information-rich
  • 3. The technology-poor the technology-rich
  • 4. The knowledge-poor the knowledge-rich (the
    culture-poor the culture-rich)
  • 5. The consciousness-poor the
    consciousness-rich
  • 6. The poor in experiencing God the rich in
    experiencing God

7
What message can we convey now?
  • The present is a total crisis and the future
    will be tragedy or a totally new start, but, in
    any case, a radically different reality ?
  • Everything is starting now as we
    are in a new space and in a new time
  • The doors and windows are opening
    up and heaven also opens up, new hopes are
    arising, but a storm is approaching lt
  • The new paradigms will bring about
    new thinking
  • We may have a new vision and a
    programme of our own lt
  • The new knowledge is available and nothing
    impedes the new state of mind or the new states
    of consciousness lt
  • We may enter into new collective
    states of consciousness lt
  • The 21st century will be brought
    or damaged by the new generations (the
    rebellions of the young) lt
  • Today, nobody is holding your hand, you may be
    afraid, you may get lost but in the
    personal-collective consciousness fields, you may
    continue to be That you can find your way home,
    you can be together with everyone lt

8
What should we consciously be aware of before
2010?
  • Facts are intellectual and social creations
  • The intellectual-spiritual models constructed of
    new and relevant pieces of knowledge are missing
  • There is a quest for a new world order model (and
    for the alternative development concept), which
    could replace the post-modern world order, which
    has brought about the global world crisis and
    which is dying and is self-destroying
  • There is a need for supra-national, national and
    local brain trusts or networks of new knowledge
    communities built on alternative and
    value-oriented pieces of knowledge
  • There is a need for new and stable global,
    national and local discourses
  • Local civil societies and their institutions work
    out new ways of society operation and collective
    states of consciousness against the many threats

9
What should we consciously be aware of before
2012-2015?
  • In the first half of the decade the world will
    expectedly face two alternatives there will
    either be or there will not be a universal-global
    collective consciousness rise
  • We should prepare for both alternatives
  • Whether or not there will be two alternatives,
    there will be a new alternative a slow but
    continuous, maybe continuously accelerating, rise
    of personal and collective consciousness
  • The higher state of consciousness will evolve
    simultaneously at the individual, local,
    national, global-universal and, perhaps, even at
    the multiversal level
  • The lesson is final the higher level of
    consciousness somebody is at, the more
    consciously s/he should strive to raise parallel
    higher states of consciousness
  • There is no other alternative than this!

10
Contents
  • Preliminary theses (1-5)
  • New paradigms (at least 20-22 out of the
    possible 70-100)
  • Europes future scenarios (at least seven
    scenarios on the basis of both the old and the
    new paradigms)
  • Facing a new hope (giving a new meaning)

11
Preliminary Theses (5)
12
(01) The Future as a New Paradigm
  • The concept pair used to describe the era and
    thinking change old paradigms and new paradigms
  • The future is a local, national, European as well
    as universal global-local space or, more exactly,
    space-time
  • The futures (partial or full) autonomous player
    is, on the one hand, mankind and, on the other
    hand, our own living planet and, thirdly,
    mankinds collective consciousness
  • The forced routes of the present affect the
    future but no longer hold it in captivity the
    future has by now become freer from circumstances
    and the zeitgeist
  • One of the changes of the 21st century is that
    the future is more dependent on our own vision
    for the future, future concept and plans for the
    future than on the past or the present
  • Simultaneously, there is a lack of vision and/or
    hopelessness about the future in the
    Euro-Atlantic culture never seen before
  • The planned changes and the spontaneous changes
    comprise a network, we will integrate these into
    a complex planning process

13
(02) Old and New Paradigm
  • Despite the rule of the old paradigms, we are
    already living in the age of new paradigms, the
    near future will be about the spreading and
    acceptance of the new paradigms
  • The new paradigm is a new way of thinking
    overstepping the natural, materialistic reality,
    the physical body, consumption, etc.
  • In other words returning to the real realities
    (to consciousness, space-time, culture) because
    functional construction alone can be successful
    only with limitations
  • From matter to consciousness-centred matter or,
    even, to consciousness, from the universe to
    universal consciousness fields and parallel
    universes, from society to society consciousness
    and subconsciousness, etc.
  • Creation of a new world inside and also
    outside. Development should not be aimed
    primarily at materialistic effects (realities),
    even if effects have a backwards influence (on
    consciousnesses)
  • A quick change has started from natural history
    we will get to post-history. Ideas act with us.

14
(03) Paradigm Shifts Beyond the Rules
  • Thomas S. Kuhn uses the concept of paradigm in
    21 different meanings, Kuhn took the term
    paradigm from Mihály Polányi
  • In non-revolutionary periods, the prevailing
    paradigms cannot be left behind. Paradigm shifts
    do not follow the normal process, they are
    lightning-like switches, in a certain sense,
    irrational acts
  • Four components symbolic generalisation,
    metaphysical presupposition/ontology model,
    values-pieces of knowledge, examples
  • The paradigm shift presupposes a new community
    of scientists a new cognitive function a new
    attitude a new world view etc. And a new
    mediating community and technology
  • In any case, new paradigm(s) are coming today
    again in a lightning-like way?

15
(04) The 21st Century A Preliminary Vision
  • Inconceivable though it may be but the 19-20th
    centuries are ending now perhaps not with a
    devastating noise
  • In the second third of the 21st century the
    latest, inconceivable changes will take place
    perhaps not with a destroying noise
  • Most of the pieces of knowledge required for the
    changes already exist to societies, these are
    likely to be inconceivable yet
  • Most of the new technologies required also
    already exist these are also often
    inconceivable even to the economy
  • So we can say that the past and the future can be
    viewed and interpreted the real source of
    danger is, again, the impossibility of the
    transition and, also, of the present here is
    the new future discourse!
  • Do Hungary (and Europe) feel only the gentle
    dramas of unsustainability or also the paradigm
    shift? Are we preparing for the new times of
    paradigm shifting yet?

16
(05) Reconsidering Our Fields of Action (the
Unified New Social Space Concept)
17
New Paradigms (1-2025)
18
1. New Reality and Notion of Reality
  • The new reality is a complex and multidimensional
    reality first and second nature, personal and
    collective consciousness, spiritual reality,
    transcendental reality, virtual reality
  • Reality if a multi-layer reality that appears in
    space (in space-time) a vertical, horizontal
    and, at the same time, supra-space reality
  • Living, self-changing, conscious nature is
    not identical with the dead and/or existing
    nature that is handled as matter-object
  • The intellectual-spiritual reality (the
    collective knowledge or mind) should not be
    confused with the physical or natural reality
  • Economy is not only production, exchange of goods
    and an economic market but also a multi-vector
    (natural, social, spiritual, intellectual,
    mental, etc.) reality
  • The living, self-developing society is not
    identical with the objective, subordinated,
    manipulated society (visible and invisible)
  • Economy, society or the state are functional and
    substantial realities at the same time
  • All realities are living organisms, created and
    creating, which have their own laws, independent
    programs, movements, connections and networks
    (etc.)

19
1.1. Reality Levels, Dimensions
  • Reality (and, at the same time, space-time)
    levels transcendental, spiritual, intellectual,
    natural-environmental, global-universal,
    continental, social-national, local, personal
    human
  • At each reality level, different types of
    consciousness states and knowledge qualities
  • At each level, the consciousness/knowledge
    qualities continuously create institutionalised
    and virtual realities
  • Functionally, reality creation is civilisation,
    substantially, it is culture
  • The individual is a consequence of and, at the
    same time, co-creator in creation at all levels
    (as a physical, spiritual, consciousness and
    knowledge body)

20
1.2. Integrated Conclusions
  • Many realities, many consciousnesses
  • Many universes, many space-times
  • Many globalisations/localisations
  • Many states and self-governments
  • Many economies and economy consciousnesses
  • Many societies and collective space-times
  • Many nations and national qualities
  • Many selves and many consciousnesses in very
    individual
  • Much knowledge and many sciences about the same
    thing
  • Many manies ? but the many manies are ONE

21
1.2. The Reality of the Future Will Get Shaped
Not Only at the Physical Level
  • If reality (and non-reality) are many platforms,
    dimensions or vectors at the same time, then the
    reality of the present and, especially, of the
    future are determined by many platforms
    (dimensions, etc.) and the matrix system of the
    platforms in the same way
  • If we think about any element of the future
    (humans, economy, society, etc.), our only
    starting hypothesis may be that the common source
    of the simultaneous changes taking place on the
    different platforms creates the new
    reality/consciousness
  • If the future partly or largely depends on us,
    our vision and will, we should examine what
    future and how we plan for ourselves on the
    physical, intellectual, soul, mental or spiritual
    platform
  • The levels of reality open to and between each
    other and the mutual relations in the reality
    platform matrix get activated
  • The possibility for movement that comprises the
    paradigm shift which is created on the platform
    of time is nothing else than the possibility
    for movement between levels of reality and space,
    which is to be created
  • In future creation, we have self-creating,
    self-developing partners on all platforms
    (dimensions, etc.), with whom we should at least
    have structured communication

22
2. New Consciousness Concepts
  • There is no common scientific consensus about
    what consciousness is and, moreover, there will
    not be one in the near future
  • Consciousness is researched by theoretical
    physics, neurology, brain research, psychology
    and society research
  • Each field of science uses a different
    consciousness (and mind) concept
  • Until there is a unified physics theory, biology
    (or life) theory, hypotheses will be mutually
    exclusive
  • Science that deals with the natural reality can
    search for consciousness only as a physical
    reality
  • Society is also divided some consider
    consciousness as a product of the brain, others
    accept the independence and primacy of
    consciousness
  • Consciousness is perhaps the most important issue
    in the 21st century

23
2.1. Personal and Collective Consciousness
Structure
  • Unity consciousness
  • --------------------------------------------------
    --------------------------------------------------
    ---------
  • Absolute consciousness
  • God consciousness
  • Cosmic consciousness
  • Pure consciousness
  • ---------------------------------------
  • Semi-pure consciousness
  • Alert consciousness ( sleep, deep sleep)
  • Semi-alert consciousness
  • Devoid of (alert) consciousness
  • ----------------------------------------
  • Unconsciousness
  • Unity-consciousness
  • --------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------
  • Supra-God one-consciousness
  • Sacral humankind consciousness
  • Pantheistic consciousness
  • Enlightened community consciousness
  • ----------------------------------------------
  • Community consciousness and its levels
  • Social consciousness and its levels (global,
    national, local)
  • Manipulated mass consciousness
  • (half) losing social consciousness
  • ----------------------------------------------
  • Social unconsciousness

24
3. A New Hypothesis about Matter
  • It is not matter that creates consciousness but
    consciousness creates matter, through which it
    gets manifested
  • The one who perceives cannot be separated from
    the perceived event
  • Matter shows the characteristics of waves and
    particles at the same time
  • The likely events of quantum processes
    likelihood waves (status vectors) or likelihood
    networks
  • Super-space theory (we live parallel, different
    worlds) - John A. Wheelers theory
  • The principle of non-locality-based effects and
    events
  • We can choose many universes or one universe
    with something/someone suspiciously being like a
    Planner
  • The principle of non-locality-based hidden
    variable and, moreover, the principle of the
    inherent order (Bohm-theory)
  • etc.

25
3.1. Brain, Mind and What Else?
  • The brain body , yet it is becoming clear now
    that atoms, molecules, etc. are not only physical
    realities
  • The mind sensing and thinking
  • Consciousness not body, not a product of the
    brain, not the mind and not even the soul
  • Consciousness personal consciousness and
    collective consciousness
  • Hypothesis each DNA has a pair, the phantom DNA.
    Could that be the physical manifestation of
    consciousness?
  • The Holy Spirit (or Self-existing) is in each
    atom, in each DNA?
  • In the universe, consciousness is just as primary
    as space and time or more primary than matter
  • Humans are distinguished from other living
    creatures not by the fact that they have
    consciousness the difference is in the levels
    of consciousness
  • The human being has a twofold Self (person
    external SELF and transcendental Self this was
    already a basic premise of Vedic knowledge

26
4. Thought Creation
  • Thought is a creating power ?
  • A precondition of thinking is the questioning and
    suspension of our own system of views
  • The questioning and continuous arguing about the
    zeitgeist transformed into actual theories
  • Achieving openness to all old and new theoretical
    concepts we can comprehend
  • Assuming that all living creatures and all
    existence are tied to reality and are
    transcendentally determined
  • After the rationalisation, differentiation and
    specialisation of human thinking, now we should
    strive to summarise, unify and generalise again

27
4.1. New Ways of Thinking, New Discourses
  • Two spiritual ways theory and/or philosophy
    creation about the Whole (total meta-philosophy)
    or about some Part (for example, unified physics
    theory or life theory)
  • The task is also twofold continue thinking
    and/or research by the new paradigms or work on
    the complex Whole philosophy and in commitment
    to the public good and the good future on the
    meta-philosophy of society/economy/etc.
  • Theory remains within the boundaries of science,
    philosophy steps out of it and integrates
    metaphysics and transcendent experience we can
    only decide for the (new) philosophy
  • The philosophy of the Whole can be built with a
    bottom up approach, from the living matter, or
    with a top down approach, using the highest
    consciousness and intelligence as a starting
    point or from all sides at the same time (for
    example, using a spherical model)

28
5. New Logic
  • For a long time, Aristotles logic yes no
  • John Neumanns extension yes - no perhaps
  • Anatole Rapoport (post-Copenhagen approach)
    true, false, undefined (not yet justifiable),
    senseless (remains unjustified forever)
  • Alfred Korzybski added noise ( the abolishing
    of exists)
  • Possible to interpret (true, exists, etc.), not
    possible to interpret (false, does not exist,
    etc.), possible/impossible to interpret
    (maybe), non-interpreted (undefined, noise,
    etc.)
  • In four curved dimensions
  • yes(n).yes(1) ..yes/no.. no(1).no(n)
  • Meta-logic, logical space, logical
    hyperspace-hypertime

29
6. Knowledge and the New Knowledge
  • Mankind has created new pieces of knowledge (or
    new paradigms)
  • Today, a stormy and delightful knowledge
    revolution is breaking out
  • Today, the knowledge of civilisation doubles
    every 1-1.5 years, thus, in five years time, the
    volume of information/knowledge will at least
    quintuple
  • This is also a change if quality through the
    birth of the new science and post-science, new
    knowledge (a new notion of reality, a new concept
    of man, etc.) is born
  • Simultaneously with normal and post-normal
    science comes the post-colonist based
    meta-science (new science model)
  • Sooner or later, the changes in the quantity and
    quality of knowledge may enforce the introduction
    of new education and new educational institutions
  • While the new knowledge is applied, at least
    three-four consecutive technological revolutions
    will take place (also in the technology of
    education)

30
6.1. The Knowledge Space (Intellectual Hyper
Space)
  • The collective knowledge space an intellectual
    hyper space, collective (or creative)
    intelligence or collective mind
  • Space/time levels transcendental, universal,
    global, social-national, local, personal human
  • At each level, different types of knowledge
    qualities and states of consciousness (the
    quality of knowledge depends on the state of
    consciousness)
  • At each level, the consciousness/knowledge
    qualities continuously create institutionalised
    and virtual realities
  • For millennia, functionally, reality creation has
    been civilisation, substantially, it has been
    culture
  • The individual (as a physical, spiritual,
    consciousness and knowledge body) is the
    consequence and, at the same time, the co-creator
    of creation at all levels

31
7. New Science Types
  • Four parallel sciences (normal, post-normal, post
    and meta science)
  • Normal science materialistic, the successful
    research of natural reality
  • Post-normal science new materialism, the
    inclusion of post-natural reality in the field of
    research
  • Post-science mind/consciousness/spirit
    centeredness, the discovery of realities beyond
    natural reality
  • Meta-science unified philosophy (unification of
    all former sciences and the compilation of a
    hypothesis about the peak reality)
  • Science is not only natural science in a narrow
    sense
  • The dominant science is normal science but
    post-normal science will trigger the paradigm
    shift
  • Normal man is not forced to accept materialistic,
    naturalistic normal science
  • Societies want partnership with science

32
7.1. Have You Met the New Science Yet?
  • Have you seen the book The Revolution of
    Consciousness? (László Ervin, Stanislav Grof,
    Peter Russell)
  • Have you found R. A. Wilsons book entitled
    Quantum Philosophy?
  • Have you borrowed Michio Kakus book on
    theoretical physics entitled Hyperspace from
    the library?
  • Have you seen the DVD Decrypting the Mystery of
    Life (Az élet rejtélyének megfejtése)?
  • Have you seen the film What an Earth Do We Know
    about the World? (Mi a csudát tudunk a
    világról?)
  • Did you know that István Tasi has just published
    a book with the title What if There Is No
    Evolution? (Mi van, ha nincs evolúció?)
  • Have you read the book What the Heck Do We
    Know? (Mi a füttyöt... tudunk?)
  • Will you try to get Ken Wilbers book A Brief
    History of Operating Spirit (A Muködo Szellem
    rövid története)?
  • Have you studied the book Meta-theory,
    Meta-philosophy
  • (Metaelmélet, metafilozófia)?

33
8. Man and the New (Sort of) Concept of Man
34
8.1. The Relationship Between the Citizen and the
State (1)
  • 1. Rule of the, subordination of citizens (basic
    model or quasi democracy) citizens are not
    autonomous, they are indirectly and/or directly
    subordinated, while the state is strong,
    centralised and rules, though this rule does not
    yet necessarily mean total defencelessness but it
    does mean many sorts of threats!
  • 2. Dictatorial state, defenceless citizen (lack
    of democracy, socialist democracy) in the
    given state, dictatorship forms and individuals
    have no say or decision making powers in things,
    moreover, as individuals, they are extremely
    defenceless (politically, economically, socially,
    emotionally)
  • 3. Democratic state, indirect citizen
    participation (classic democracy) there is a
    quasi balance between the civil state and its
    citizens, within the boundaries of
    representational democracy, citizens can
    indirectly participate in theory in the
    preparation of decisions and even in the checking
    of the implementation of decisions however,
    today, the model has such a complex deficit which
    cannot be made up for inside the framework of the
    model

35
8.1. The Relationship Between the Citizen and the
State (2)
  • 4. Community state, community citizen
    (community-organic democracy) both the state and
    the individual are subordinated to the interests
    and values of the community and, in a broader
    sense, of the society as a whole in theory,
    without seriously infringing the normal autonomy
    of the state or of individuals. In history, this
    model has existed only for short, temporary
    periods of time, therefore, today, it can mostly
    be considered as an ideal.
  • 5. Participatory state, direct community citizen
    participation (direct democracy, participatory
    democracy, e-democracy) This interactive
    relationship assumes a state and citizens who are
    not alienated. In this system of relationships,
    real balance and mutual, also organic
    responsibility forms between the two parties.
  • 6. Post-secular state, spiritual citizen
    (spiritual-sacral or post-secular or
    consciousness-based democracy) This is the
    amalgamation of traditional sacral and
    traditional representational/participatory
    democracy models. Real balance and mutual, also
    organic responsibility forms between the two
    parties also in this system of relationships
    but that have content-based cornerstones in
    collective consciousness or/and collective
    intelligence, etc.

36
9. The Nature of Globalisation
  • The visible-invisible world, the
    objective-subjective reality and its
    momentary-historic shape, the global and local
    world/consciousness exist simultaneously at four
    levels ?
  • outside, in earthly civilisation, at the global
    level
  • in the life of the individual and in his/her
    environment (in the local world),
  • inside, in our personal consciousness,
  • finally, also in the collective consciousness of
    earthly civilisation
  • Thus globalisation takes place at four levels
    simultaneously, or it is a globalisation of at
    least four levels, which can be interpreted at
    each of the four levels independently.
  • The meta-theory of globalisation is the unified
    theory of these four types of globalisation.

37
9.1. The New Globalisation
  • Historically, there has been a different
    multi-globalisation model, an amalgamation of the
    current two world models (money market centred
    new capitalism and information capitalism)
  • The internal structure of globalisation
    universification and localisation
    (glob-localisation as a universal process)
  • functional and substantial globalisation depart
    but do not become mutually exclusive
  • In the information age, the cleavage between the
    dominant and subordinated world power-world
    economy spaces is not yet disappearing
  • Quantity-based (spreading) and quality-based
    (consciousness and knowledge-based)
    globalisations become different models
  • The low level of the hyperspace of collective
    consciousness is the mediatised global
    communication space
  • The high quality continuation of formal
    unification is a utopia and a no-other-choice
    situation at the same time

38
9.2. The Global Collective Consciousness
  • Global and local collective consciousness play a
    cardinal role in earthly civilisation but the
    complex (physical-post-physical) understanding of
    collective consciousness is still half-finished
  • Levels global and continental (European)
    consciousness, social (national) consciousness,
    local (regional, small regional, municipal)
    consciousness
  • You cannot artificially separate it from
    post-global (universal and transcendental)
    consciousnesses
  • In Europe, colonial collective consciousness
    remained the ruling paradigm universal
    consciousness is missing
  • The passages between collective levels of
    consciousness are often impassable (especially
    between global and local consciousness)
  • There exist suppressed unconsciousness-subconsciou
    s fields therefore, the theory of collective
    unconsciousness was born earlier
  • In its dominant forms, collective consciousness
    is often injured and has limitations in
    self-development

39
10. The Theory of Localisation
  • The concept of localisation subordinated
    locality
  • Platforms of localisation region, county, small
    region, municipality (town and village)
  • A basic unit and counter-weight of the global
    world (autonomy-paradigm)
  • Natural and social locality as the worlds
    life-belt
  • The new societys (and social spaces) first, low
    level is the vertical-horizontal network of
    localities
  • Partial opportunity for self-sufficiency
  • Virtual locality qualitative locality?
  • localisation and new communities, autonomous
    groups and new congregations

40
10.1. New Local Structure
  • At a physical/natural level, the upper world of
    life (region, county, etc.) reaches up as far as
    the national/social world of life
  • Lower world of life complex social space-time
  • Surrounding world (small region,
    municipality)
  • The world at hand (family, individual)
  • Internal world of life (the individuals superego
    or, simply the individual SELF)
  • The impacts of globalisation and the reactions of
    localisation defence against what is outside,
    from inside, lifting it to the global level
    (sew-saw role)
  • The precondition of acquiring information and
    knowledge is nothing else than giving each
    citizen the chance to have access to space
    creation
  • Locality is also a social, economic, spiritual
    and sacral reality at the same time the world
    that can be directly experienced and that
    provides protection
  • Repeatedly re-born local consciousness
    strengthens locality and is a chance for it

41
11. The New (or Knowledge-driven) Economy
  • In almost every product, the majority of its
    value is the added value, the information,
    knowledge
  • The latest change the knowledge sector goes
    beyond its former boundaries and takes over
    economy (education industry, healthcare industry,
    content industry, etc.)
  • Another new change the money market centred new
    capitalism also steps ahead and absorbs the
    knowledge economy but the chances of
    alternative economy are not worse
  • money capital and knowledge capital are becoming
    ever more mutually exchangeable
  • A global knowledge economy market and, at the
    same time, a knowledge market is born, which
    reshapes the global-local world
  • However, the knowledge economy will only partly
    do away with global economic inequalities
  • The new economy will not manage the continuous
    crises the manipulated, partially market-based
    economic system will remain dominant

42
11.1. Post Market Economy?
  • The law of exhaustion. Fordian economy is over,
    the super-monopoly of money-centred economy is
    weakening, the career of knowledge-based economy
    is progressing slowly, e-economy is growing
    despite all the problems but what is the
    solution?
  • The law of flowing out. Economy has overflowed
    the banks of economy like knowledge is
    overflowing the banks of knowledge production
    technology assumed a new role earlier and the
    impacts of ecology are also spreading over other
    sectors
  • The law of endplay. The climate change makes the
    economy collapse. Instead of/besides social
    market economy, for example, we are progressing
    towards the model of an economy that is
    subordinated to the interests of society, the
    future is knowledge-driven ecological society
    economy?
  • The law of paradigm shift. The futures
    post-market economy is creating a new model,
    which will be self-sufficient and universal at
    the same time, it will be the economy of the
    local money and the global currency at the same
    time it will an economy driven by man, society,
    morality and spirituality

43
11.2. New Ownership Models
  • At present, there are two dominant ownership
    models private ownership and state ownership
  • These two forms of ownership in themselves if
    nothing else, because of their exclusivity are
    not suitable to even operate the economy
  • The reinstatement of two former forms of
    ownership is inevitable community ownership and
    sacral ownership
  • Community ownership can be, for example, a part
    of cropland, for which a given municipal
    government could be granted management rights
  • Sacral ownership, for example, is the Holy Crown,
    over which neither the state nor any of the
    churches could dispose
  • National ownership, for example, the Houses of
    Parliament, whose management rights are always in
    the hands of the Hungarian Parliament in force
  • A new form of ownership could be knowledge
    ownership, which could be registered in a
    knowledge office and which could later be floated
    on the knowledge exchange
  • The introduction of undividable family ownership
    should also be considered

44
12. The Society Theory
  • Society is two dimensions or vectors functional
    reality and substantial (in a narrower sense
    organic) consciousness
  • Society is multi-layered global, continental,
    national, local (see the multi-layered nature of
    matter)
  • Society unlike the state is basically a
    network of civil societies and is also already a
    virtually existing reality
  • Besides physical, biological and spiritual
    fractals, there also exist social fractals
  • Society is not industrial and no longer
    post-industrial but is already mostly an
    information and, in a small part, a knowledge
    society
  • In our country (also), political and economic
    institutions are the manifestations of
    global-continental and national consciousness
  • In our country, state/municipal institutions are
    the products of the continental and social
    partial consciousness
  • In our country, non-institutionalised (informal)
    law is stronger and more efficient than the
    rule-of-law state
  • In our country, social unconsciousness after
    waves of suppression is a rebellious and
    creative consciousness

45
12.1. Society and Civil Society
  • Subordinated society (feudal society, industrial
    society, etc.) as the loss and change of values
    of community-social consciousnesses largely
    supported the spreading of subordinated society
    types therefore, the societies of the nineteenth
    and twentieth centuries especially when the
    state was strong can be qualified as alienated
    societies.
  • Nationalised society (nation-socialist society,
    socialist society, etc.) no dictatorship can be
    strong enough to totally destroy society,
    moreover, each dictatorship is forced to create a
    fake society and to establish fake community
    relationships in it, which certain social groups
    may even embrace.
  • Democratic society (civil society, post-socialist
    society, new capitalist society, information
    society, etc.) This society model becomes
    somewhat independent of the political regime, in
    theory, the individual is not considered an
    enemy, still, it creates an intricate
    defencelessness system, though the system tries
    to involve the individual in the system and
    motivate him/her to act within the boundaries of
    the state/political regime.

46
12.1. Society and Civil Society
  • Community society (national society, community
    society, sacral or post-sacral - society,
    etc.) Many community society types have formed
    over the history of civilisation, in earlier
    eras, tradition-based societies used to dominate
    and, actually, national societies have also been
    deeply rooted in the traditions of the given
    country and culture. By today, community and
    post-community society models have again been
    marked up, as a consequence of the general value
    crisis, the exaggerated individualisation and
    over-consumption, which increases emptiness.
  • Intelligent and collective consciousness centred
    civil society (knowledge society, conscious
    centred society, etc.) the new society models of
    the next fifty-one hundred years will include
    knowledge and innovation centred, creative
    society types, which are fundamentally tied
    partly to post-modern, mediatised
    info-communication networks and services and,
    partly, to new forms of life organised by
    collective consciousnesses of a higher quality

47
13. Nation and Quality
  • Above all, nation is quality, consciousness
    quality, soul quality, knowledge quality (see
    the Vedic concept of Hamsa quality above
    casts)
  • A new institutional mediator between the global
    and local worlds (the manifested reality of
    collective consciousness quality)
  • The method of mediation is not ruling but
    neither unconditional self-sacrifice
  • The functional role of nation as a state (nation
    state) the institution of survival and autonomy
  • Today, however, the retention of the nation is
    possible not so much as and in a nation state
    but, rather, as a knowledge-consciousness nation,
    i.e. a tradition and sacral based,
    culture-centred nation (substantial role)
  • The principal preconditions of the survival of
    the nation are the digitisation of all national
    knowledge/science/art and making these available
    to the public

48
13.1. Nation Consciousness, Hungarian
Consciousness
  • (Collective) nation consciousness is, at the same
    time, a special and individual society
    consciousness, a mediator consciousness, i.e. a
    collective consciousness quality
  • Nation consciousness mediates and integrates the
    transcendental and universal consciousnesses from
    the top, and the local and personal
    consciousnesses from the bottom (one layer of the
    unified field of physics?)
  • Simultaneously space and time consciousness
    (history and future consciousness, people and
    country consciousness)
  • In other words, nation is primarily not a
    political entity or a state but a consciousness
    and knowledge space
  • Is Hungarian nation consciousness a tradition
    centred and heroic consciousness and a present
    centred and waiving consciousness at the same
    time? Tradition, future and/or alternative
    consciousness?
  • Again or finally topical build, do not
    politicize! (naturally, building is also
    politicization at a high level)

49
13.2. The Tasks of Spiritual Self-Building
  • The first truth has not changed god is with us
    and we are with Him let us link the Up with the
    Down
  • The second truth has neither changed the nation
    is a representation of consciousness quality
    (knowledge quality, soul quality)
  • The third truth is the same raising the
    Hungarian collective level of consciousness and,
    (also) as a result of that, the state of
    consciousness of each individual and, thus
    (also), of the whole mankind
  • The fourth is also well-known universally,
    Hungarians should take the lead in saving our
    planet and galaxy
  • The fifth one is more important than ever
    spiritual/intellectual Hungarians should spread
    the new thinking, the new paradigms and the new
    approach of achieving consciousness and get these
    accepted
  • And, last but not least they should always be
    ready, especially now, to encourage and implement
    the universal-spiritual world change

50
13.3. National Consciousness Raising and
Self-organising in Practice
  • Compilation of a comprehensive, multi-level
    national strategy for all dimensions of
    reality for the short, medium and long terms
    for the global, national and local levels alike
  • Everyones quiet and detailed preparation in
    accordance with the new paradigms collective
    knowledge and consciousness raising through
    training with a broad coverage
  • Tranquil, peaceful self-organisation with a new
    consciousness civil and spiritual institutions
    to be established and organised into a network
    (national alliance, knowledge workshops,
    community universities, religious order, Internet
    television channels, etc.)
  • Creating a spiritual, social, local, partly
    self-sufficient and sustainable economy as a
    first step, at the local level and partly in a
    non-market way
  • Firstly, as an internal order of operation,
    (direct and electronic) participatory democracy
  • Raising the personal states of consciousness of
    the most suitable people and making the highest
    new knowledge available and transferring it
  • Win as many nations and self-organising groups
    for the building of the new world order as
    possible

51
14. The State and a New State Image
  • The theories of the omnipotent market economy and
    the omnipotent state have proven wrong and lost
    their appeal
  • In theory, the state should be the manager and
    developing organisation of society a controlled
    institution of society
  • The state and society have departed the
    welding back together has not yet started
  • Is the ruling, power-based, drastic state also no
    longer acceptable in Eastern Europe?
  • Will the hope for a sovereign and exclusively
    capable-to-act state get lost?
  • Will the developing, digital state again become a
    civil state?
  • Will the regional state strengthen in its role as
    a self-saving or/and developing state?
  • Will the security guaranteeing state become more
    important than the state that guarantees human
    rights?
  • Recommendation of the UNs Global Governance
    Forum participatory state

52
14.1. New State Models
  • global state models a) global parliament and
    government, b) institutionalised cooperation of
    states, c) network of independent global
    authorities, d) (global) law without a state, e)
    global self-regulatory system, f) global
    participatory state and global civil
    institutions, g) electronic world governance,
    h) global institutionalised civil society, i)
    global conscious collective (supra-national and
    national) consciousness consciousness
    governance, j) a combination of several
    alternatives
  • local state models a) local parliament and local
    government (new city state), b) institutionalised
    cooperation of regions and municipalities, c)
    system of authorities independent of the state
    and local governments, d) local self-regulatory
    system without a centre, e) local participatory
    self-governance and democracy, f) electronic
    local e-parliament and digitalis government, g)
    local and institutionalised civil control, h)
    local consciousness governance, i) a
    combination of several alternatives

53
14.2. e-State e-Public Administration
  • Are the e-state and e-public administration one
    of the lost paradigms?
  • The electronic virtual-demos be born
  • The first step from quantitative democracy to
    qualitative democracy (potentially a new
    democracy model)
  • The institutionalisation of the new type of
    global and local democracy
  • The e-extension of exercising suffrage
  • A fundamental precondition is the development of
    the knowledge of electors and elector groups
    otherwise, representational democracy will be
    developed back
  • Creating direct electronic participation
  • Fast spreading of e-governance, e-public
    administration
  • Can the participatory sacral democracy model come
    after the post-modern democracy theory?

54
15. Democracy Models
  • In the industrial age
  • Instead of individual state society
    democracy
  • Citizen (industrial) state civil society
    representational democracy
  • In the socialist era
  • Instead of individual state society
    democracy
  • Citizen/nationalised citizen party state
    nationalised society socialist democracy
  • in the information age
  • Instead of individual state society
    democracy
  • (as a chance) Network citizen digital state
    intelligent society e-democracy
  • In the next twenty-five years
  • Instead of individual state society
    democracy
  • ?

55
15.1. The Democracy Models of the Future
  • A new global democracy model is needed again
    tied to the new reality and the new ideas
  • The new model can only be defined by an esoteric
    democracy theory that is based on a value
    consensus that is also socially supported
  • On the one hand, this can be a model which is a
    complex democracy matrix, horizontally and
    vertically (the democracy matrix principle)
  • On the other hand, this model should not serve
    only the interests of the social (ruling) groups
    that enjoy the social benefits and the people who
    act for their good (the civil democracy
    principle)
  • From a torso quantitative democracy we can
    progress to some qualitative democracy only
    through new legislation and state modernisation
  • A precondition and, at the same time, a
    consequence of the new democracy model is the new
    democracy-consciousness
  • New models e-democracy, participatory democracy,
    direct democracy, consciousness-based (or sacral)
    democracy

56
16. A New School Vision
  • Schools ignore and do not teach the new knowledge
  • Elementary schools and most secondary schools are
    hierarchic institutions, the student despite
    all efforts to the opposite is defenceless
  • Frontal teaching, which serves school mass
    production, is still dominant
  • Today, teachers are also defenceless, they cannot
    keep up with the explosion of knowledge, they
    cannot handle the running wild of students and
    do not know what to do with the irrational
    reactions of classes
  • In Hungary, there is no concept or practice for a
    de-schooled school or for any non-hierarchical
    school
  • Todays universities are not like the
    universitas of the Middle Ages but educational
    institutions of industrial capitalism, which
    apply conveyor belt mass production
  • Colleges, and even universities, resign
    themselves to the low quality, do not now how to
    handle the under-education of students and do not
    prepare their students for the paradigm shifts of
    the next thirty-fifty years

57
16.1. The School of the Future
  • It teaches the old and the new knowledge together
    the transfer of knowledge at a quality near the
    high-knowledge of the age
  • The new school will not be knowledge but
    consciousness centred local, national, universal
    and spiritual consciousness-centeredness
  • The school of the future is student-oriented,
    future-conscious, society developing or, for
    example, a participatory school
  • The student will become a conscious, researching
    and developing personality (s/he will have high
    quality knowledge and a high state of
    consciousness)
  • Above all, the teacher will be a person who
    applies the know-how of knowledge acquisition and
    transfer (primarily, a super knowledge mediator)
  • A de-schooled school model will spread the
    school will be a participation-based knowledge
    and creativity workshop
  • The school as an institution will not continue to
    be a show-area of hidden and open aggression and
    half-knowledge
  • It will prepare its students for the era of the
    knowledge and consciousness society, life-long
    learning and successful participation on the
    global knowledge market
  • Therefore, the school of the future will
    consciously develop students personal
    consciousness and the collective consciousness of
    classes/schools

58
17. Climate Crisis
  • The climate crisis is a proof that our planet is
    a sensing, sensible and self-acting natural and,
    at the same time, post-natural being (GAIA)
  • The climate crisis is a proof that man is a
    sensing, sensible, self-acting and, moreover,
    conscious post-natural being, who cannot correct
    the nature-destroying mistakes that he has made
    in time and successfully which also proves that
    though he may sense well, mans mind can be
    limited, he can lose his ability for independent
    action and his collective consciousness may get a
    short circuit
  • This is the most frightening new paradigm,
    independently of the fact that it may lead to a
    tragic ultimate outcome
  • One consequence may be that the majority of
    mankind will physically fall prey to the
    collective and personal behaviour of acting and
    living on our planet only as a physical being,
    switching off his consciousness and
    back-developing his ability for self-correction

59
17.1. The Interpretation of the Climate Crisis
  • The climate crisis should be interpreted on all
    platforms and in each vector of reality
  • Due to the industrial ages (liberal) sustainable
    development model, the crisis cannot be managed
  • Today, the climate crisis is unmanageable only
    at the physical level and on that platform, it
    can really not be resolved
  • If the Earth is a living organism and if, for
    this reason, is capable of independent action,
    we cannot know what role it played in the start
    of the climate crisis and, moreover, we have no
    idea what role it may play in the management of
    this tragic crisis
  • If reality also has a transcendental platform, we
    must perform experiments to use the techniques
    offered by this platform in the resolution of the
    crisis
  • Whether we interpret the climate crisis on the
    physical/natural platform or on any other
    platform, the collective consciousness of mankind
    plays a key role

60
18. What One Cannot Talk About
  • Existence and Non-existence together are the
    transcendental or transcendental
    reality/consciousness, which is timeless and
    spaceless and space-time/time-space (ultimately
    impossible to describe using earthly or exoteric
    notions?) Absolute consciousness above all
    consciousness and the Only reality
  • The personal/impersonal God to use some name or
    reference is many heavens in the language of
    symbols, moreover, each heaven is many and other
    heavens while the many times are many different
    types of time, moreover, each time plane is an
    n number of time dimensions but, finally,
    OneHeaven
  • At the level of Existence, the personal God
    OneGod. If there is only OneGod, there may not be
    many OneGods (or OneGod-like beings), - the
    OneGod and, also, the Only God, may manifest
    itself through many symbols and in different ways
  • However, the OneGod is not the absolute, but the
    manifestation of the absolute (or Divinity?) is
    the OneGod, which, at the same time, is several
    Gods within itself, see the Holy Trinity. The
    absolute (if it is what it is) is necessarily the
    essence of the OneGod
  • Each God (or holy trinity), each nation is God,
    each event is God, each human (his/her essence)
    is a Divine Self, the road is open for each human
    to the God/Divinity Consciousness (and/or to the
    Unity Consciousness)
  • The only thing you have to do is to represent,
    follow, show up, continue, bring to completion...

61
18.1. One Example Hegels Concept of God
  • Absolute spirit, while an identity that is
    eternally self-contained, is likewise an identity
    that is returning and has returned into itself
    the only and general substance as a spiritual
    thing, division into itself and a knowledge for
    which there is substance. Religion, as this
    highest sphere can usually be referred to, is to
    be seen as proceedings from and located in the
    subject no less than as proceeding from absolute
    spirit, which is present as spirit in its
    community. God is to be understood as spirit in
    its community. (554 ) The Philosophy of the
    Spirit Encyclopaedia III. pp. 346
  • God in his generality i.e. general, in which
    there are no boundaries, no finiteness and no
    peculiarity means an absolute existence, only
    existence and what exists, has roots and
    existence only in in this One. If we interpret
    this first content like that, we can say God is
    the absolute substance, the only true reality.
    All other forms of reality are not in and for
    itself real and not in and for itself truly
    existing only and exclusively God is the only
    absolute reality. Lectures on the Philosophy of
    Religion, pp. 44
  • All religions share the feature that they start
    from the ONE and return there

62
18.2. New Religious Order(s)
  • A monk and a religious order are not a holy life
    quality or collective sacral consciousness
    quality tied to some historical time or space
  • On the one hand, a new religious order cannot be
    the same as it was (for example) five hundred
    years ago, on the other hand, it cannot be
    something else than what it was also hundreds of
    years ago
  • There is no other alternative than creating a new
    religious order for example, the original
    requirements of the Pauline order are now
    impossible to satisfy and, at the same time, new
    requirements have emerged
  • A possible Özséb Order is tied to time and space
    but also supra-time and supra-space the
    collective social-national consciousness quality
    and spiritual consciousness quality are mutually
    complementary
  • It is not yet decided whether a new religious
    order should be tied to a religion, should be
    over religions or should be esoteric (i.e. not
    exoteric)
  • As a first step, at least a spiritual cloister
    should be built

20. Global Future Models
  • At present, three potential future world model
    programmes are identified for earthly
    civilisation and culture
  • 1. capitalism 2. new capitalism 3.
    post-capitalism (and what comes afterwards)
  • The capitalism that has formed over recent
    decades is a money market centred, manipulated
    capitalism, which the market (the invisible hand)
    has been unable to regulate or control
  • The programme of new capitalism is nothing else
    but corrected capitalism correction is expected
    to be made by the visible hand (i.e. the state),
    though todays (functional) capitalist state is
    also unable to regulate and control
  • Both capitalism and new capitalism are the world
    models of the near past and reject social,
    ecological, knowledge, moral, collective
    consciousness and sacral coordination
  • The survival of mankind is possible only through
    one of the post-capitalist models or model
    combination a precondition being to raise the
    collective consciousness of mankind

70
20.1. Unity of Continents and Cultures
  • The era is over in which the power centres of the
    developed north export the future model to all
    continents
  • The ruling capitalist new capitalist world
    model (global manipulated market economy,
    unipolar or multipolar world order, liberal
    party-based quasi democracy, etc.) cannot be
    maintained for long
  • It is no longer tolerable that the worlds
    society has dramatically fallen into two the
    rich (who possess the integrated goods) and the
    poor (who have hardly any of the integrated
    goods) (20-80 )
  • Our planets new world order will offer each
    continent the choice of an individual future way,
    while all continents (and all states) are
    responsible for unity
  • Preconditions and guarantees of the possible
    future are the equality-based living together
    and unity of continents, cultures and religions

21. Different Versions of Giving Meaning ?
  • No meaning given (self-development of the
    planetary world))
  • Giving of negative meanings (the wicked acts of
    the wicked global world today is the last moment
    before the ultimate end only a catastrophe can
    help resolve the general problems, etc.)
  • Giving of technology-related meanings (the world
    is a self-developing techno-system, the new
    latest technologies will be the worlds
    lifebelt, etc.)
  • Giving of positive meanings (the
    knowledge-centred world will bring saving the
    future is a cyber reality and cyberpunk era, the
    rejection of metaphysics and the modern at the
    same time the global sustainable era will save
    us, the only way is to progress beyond the
    capitalist-post-capitalist world model, etc.)
  • Giving neutral meanings (four-dimensional
    space-time transpersonal reality back to nature
    and former ages, etc.)
  • Giving sacral meanings (divine reality exists and
    leads us, giving meaning over time and space is
    never-ending and is in control)
  • So please, choose! Or? Do the meanings given
    choose us?

21.1. We Have Been Given Meaning!
  • The paradigm that we give meaning to the world is
    obsolete but the assumption that we have
    nothing to do with the interpretation of the
    world (i.e. giving it meaning) will also become
    obsolete
  • The worlds nature of having been intelligently
    planned has shown us that nature has meaning in
    itself
  • Societys many-millennia history has handed down
    and finalised the original (sacral and
    post-sacral) giving of meaning/filling with
    meaning
  • In each individual the divine SELF or
    Self-existing exists this is not a meaning from
    this world but a transcendental meaning
  • Personal and collective consciousness preserves,
    summarises, projects and creates the giving of
    meanings
  • The giving of negative meanings and methods of
    protection, spread throughout the world, are
    obsolete and cause self-destruction
  • We have been given meaning and have been giving
    meaning for an infinite time and we will continue
    to be the same even after the infinite time we
    have all the opportunities
  • And, behold, this is the New (and also the
    Ancient) Hope!

21.2. Personal Recognitions
  • You may lose everything financially or
    existentially do not be afraid of this, relax
    and relax your ties
  • If you are afraid that security and
    comfortableness will be shaken, you may have a
    nervous-spiritual breakdown and you will not
    understand your mission
  • Now, partial awakening or enlightening will not
    suffice, moreover, historical continuity will be
    restored and unity creation will become possible
  • Get prepared for the already announced new
    beginning, the new times, the radically new
    alternatives, which will also be spiritual peak
    opportunities
  • Now, not only an era of great leaps but the era
    of delightful physical-spiritual quantum leaps
  • What is coming is a space-time of not simply
    practical and organisational cooperations but of
    the new collective consciousnesses and
    consciousness-cooperations
  • The new millennium is a chance for a crash - as
    well as for rebirth, if we re-build the world
    inside and outside based on higher states of
    consciousness
