Many current world crises, including energy consumption, inadequate
health care, rampant malnutrition, environmental degradation, and
violent conflict between countries, regions and religions, are not
isolated events. Growing evidence suggests that myriad misunderstood
phenomena in nature be they physical, mental, or spiritual, may be best
explainable by a new framework that treats events in the world as
interdependent components of an inseparable whole.
This hypothesis of interconnectedness, proposed by ancient sages from
many pre-scientific cultures has never been rigorously explored or
tested by modern mainstream science. In order to create the fundamental
shift in consciousness necessary to preserve our civilization,
experimental and theoretical investigations are required to test these
unifying approaches to nature. The goal is to fully integrate the
reductionist, and purely materialistic view, characterized by classical
Newtonian science, with the holistic view emerging out of promising
scientific disciplines such as quantum mechanics in a manner that also
addresses consciousness and transcendent states of awareness.
This holistic view can then be applied to the macroscopic world
including living systems and social phenomena. Eternea intends to
sponsor research on projects that will, for the first time in the modern
era, initiate, a major focused pursuit of the incorporation of human
experience, including, experimental, theoretical, and experiential
studies, into an integrated description of reality.
