The Evolution of Cosmic Adults

The G8 Nations are meeting again.

Those nations are France (65,073,482), United States (306,869,000), United Kingdom (61,612,300), Russia (142,008,838), Germany (82,060,000), Japan (127,433,494), Italy (60,045,068), and Canada (33,708,000), which together have a population of about 878,810,182 people.

That G-8 population figure represents about 15% of the earth's population which is about 6,000,000,000 people.

Which means that 85% of the world population is left out of G8 summits.

China (1,500,000,000) and India (1,200,000,000) were not there, even though those two nations alone represent about 45% of the earth's population.

Even among the fraction that was represented at the G8 summit, they cannot agree among themselves exactly how to proceed to solve the mounting and fast approaching problems that will bring catastrophe to their populations and economies.

Will this lack of agreement increase or decrease when most of the world's population is represented in a G-All summit?

The evolution and religion we teach in our institutions on this planet is not yet producing even planet-wise adults, in terms of which ideology and behaviour is dominating within human endeavours, much less producing cosmic adults.

Under the tenets of ecocosmology our teachers and our entire earth culture must do much better than that.

In fact, the teachers and the earth culture must eventually produce cosmic adults if the children of mother earth are to survive.

A recent Pew Research Study reveals some promising and some disturbing factors about the U.S. public's view of science, and the government's suppression of it.

  2. Tony,

    According to the dictionary:

    mob:

    1. a disorderly or riotous crowd of people.

    2. a crowd bent on or engaged in lawless violence.

    3. any group or collection of persons or things.

    4. the common people; the masses; populace or multitude.

    5. a criminal gang, esp. one involved in drug trafficking, extortion, etc.

    6. the Mob, Mafia (def. 1).

    7. Sociology. a group of persons stimulating one another to excitement and losing ordinary rational control over their activity.

    8. a flock, herd, or drove of animals: a mob of sheep
    .

    The criminal mob (#5,6) makes up a much smaller percentage than 15%, so the best my argument could show is that an "elite" 15% formed a group called the G-8, and that they think their climate politics is bigger or more important than the 85% majority.

    The criminal mob is a patchwork of illegal spots of influence within the governments mentioned, as well as those not mentioned, and they only influence they do not rule.

    But according to the dictionary your argument has merit because the laws of "the eco", "the home world", have pre-eminence.

    Under the precepts of ecocosmology all information should be considered, and yours has been.
