Omni-Science and Human Destiny
Omniscientific Cosmology and the Human Destiny
By Anthony Marr
cosmology builds upon the physical structure and processes of
the Cosmos as per conventional scientific cosmology by adding
the following as integral parts: the original inorganic molecules
of the primordial Earth gave rise to the cells ~3.5 billion years
ago, which gave rise to the metabionts (multicellular organisms)
~600 million years ago, which gave rise to animal societies (initially
the insect societies) ~100 million years ago, which gave rise
to the human-based nations ~about 10,000 years ago.
the metabiont, the “city” (including all animal societies),
and the nation are all demonstrably bona fide organisms, or “living
systems”, each on its own level of organization. Today,
the physical matter of planet Earth is organized in five levels
of organization: the Molecular, the Cellular, the Metabion, the
Citian (derived from “city”) and the National. In
contrast, all other Solar System planets have only one level of
organization – the Molecular.
The phenomenon by which a lower level gave rise to its adjacent
higher level is Integrative Transcendence (I.T.). The process
by which I.T. is achieved is Transcendent Integration (T.I.),
which essentially involves differentiation and cooperation. By
means of T.I., the social organisms of level (X) formed societies;
and by means of I.T., the advanced societies of Level (X) became
the original organisms of level (X+1). Thus, a cell is a “society”
of its own “social molecules”, a metabiont is a society
of its own social cells, a city is a society of its own social
metabionts, and a nation is a society of its own social cities.
Parallelisms exist, and are of predictive value, e.g.: 1. On every
level of organization, there are non-social and social units.
2. For every living system, on any level, there are 20 “subsystems”
(see the book for details). 3. Evolution occurs on all levels
simultaneously, although, by Translevel Progression, the lower
levels are dominated by Darwinian evolution, and the higher levels
by Lamarckian evolution. There are many other interlevel parallelisms.
By far the most monumental of all interlevel parallelisms is the
O.S.E.S. Cycle. O.S.E.S. represents the four quadrants of a cycle
of the T.I./I.T. Spiral, namely: Organismization, Speciation,
Ecosystemization and Socialization. And, by the resultant societies
organismizing into the first organisms of the level above, they
start a new and next higher O.S.E.S. Cycle on the ever-ascending
is matter-based, and is therefore a physical phenomenon. It, too,
is a result of T.I./I.T., by which the proto-consciousness or
consciousness of the units of a certain level gives rise to that
of the level above. Thus, the T.I./I.T. spiral is in fact a matter/consciousness
Earth is an egg, literally. First, a universal definition of “egg”
– a physical entity containing an embryo destined to develop
into a full organism. A bird egg, for example, is a specific case
of a universal egg, as is a planetary egg like the Earth. The
planetary egg Earth does contain a planetary embryo, namely, the
biosphere. The main difference between a bird egg and a planetary
egg is that a bird embryo is on the inside of the egg, whereas
a planetary embryo is on the outside of the egg, which nonetheless
is enclosed by the atmosphere. The development of a planetary
egg does follow a definite planetary gestation period. Specifically,
Earth’s planetary embryo has hitherto undergone four stages
of planetary metamorphosis – from molecules to cells to
metabionts to cities to nations. In other words, it has successfully
progressed through four O.S.E.S. Cycles of Earth’s T.I./I.T.
Twin-Spiral; and the T.I./I.T. Twin-Spiral itself has ascended
through four levels of organization pertaining to life on Earth.
The development of Earth’s planetary embryo follows a preset
metamorphic schedule as predetermined by the planet’s original
physical and chemical properties, which follows an accelerating
exponential timeframe. This timeframe appears to accord to the
Fibonacci numbers series applicable to the many spiraling forms
found in nature.
The metamorphosis of Earth’s planetary embryo has currently
progressed on to the Socialization quadrant of the O.S.E.S. Cycle
of Earth’s T.I./I.T. Twin-Spiral on the National level of
organization. If the T.I./I.T. Twin-Spiral would continue to unfold
as it has over the last 4.6 billion years of Earth’s history,
the next step would be planetary organismization. This would involve
the nations transcendently integrating into a harmonized international
society involving differentiation and cooperation, and to integratively
transcend from the geo-embryo to the full-fledged Planetary Organism
Earth. Of course, it could also fail and, at the crucial juncture,
Earth’s biosphere might spontaneously regress back down
to the lower levels, with the National, Citian or even Metabion
Once the Planetary Organism Earth has organismized into being,
it will be the original organism on the Planetary level of organization
within the Solar System. After a period of maturation, it will
reproduce, begetting offspring planetary organisms on other Solar
System planets and their satellites, or in interplanetary space.
Earth’s “seeds” will be space colonies - citian
organisms in their own right, which will contain the genes and
memes of Earth. Once landing on other planets and their satellites,
or stabilized in orbit, these citian level “Earth seeds”
will quickly form national organisms, and eventually planetary
organisms. Thus, yet a new O.S.E.S. Cycle, on the Planetary level
of organization, will unfold. Like the lower-level organisms before
them, these planetary organisms will speciate, form a multi-planetary
ecosystem, and eventually inter-planetary society, which, if all
go well, will become the Stellar Organism Sol - on the Stellar
level of organization.
extrapolation of the Earth’s T.I./I.T. Spiral beyond the
Solar System may find it joining the T.I./I.T. twin-spirals of
other integratively transcended planetary systems in the interstellar
realm. Especially if light-speed could be exceeded by some yet
unknown technology, there will likely be three levels of organization
from the stellar organism to the Galactic Organism, and another
three levels from the galactic organism to the ultimate and singular
this Universal Organism be like? Comparing the physical and mental
powers of a human being (a metabion organism) against those of
an amoeba (a cellular organism), the difference is of course immense.
And yet, they are but one level of organization apart. By the
above reckoning, the Universal Organism is ten levels above the
human being, and eight levels above the United States (a national
organism). Within the Cosmos, the Universal Organism will be everywhere.
Its knowledge will encompass that in every library on every planet
endowed with civilization. Its physical and mental powers will
be virtually infinite. A traditional theologian would have no
choice but to describe it as being virtually “omnipresent,
omniscient and omnipotent”.
But two things he would have to concede: 1. There is nothing supernatural
about this Universal Organism; it is entirely natural. And 2.
It certainly did not create us; on the contrary, we will have
participated, in however miniscule a capacity, in creating it.
assumes that we can survive our current planetary crisis. According
to the Omniscientific Cosmology as conceived by the author, the
key to success is T.I./I.T..
