About this project
How did we get here, why are we doing this, how can you contact us, what are we trying to accomplish, what if I need help??
History of this vision
This project has a long history that spans many disciplines and sectors. We combine "science and religion" in original ways. We combine all of these elements into an enlightened new vision for politics and governance -- that we believe is being driven by creative people all over the world.
This site is under construction and constantly growing and evolving.
Interns, coordinators, staff assistants and volunteers
If you would like to help us "weave a world that works", please get in touch. We'll find a special position for you!

Strategy and design
How are we going to accomplish our objectives?
How important are agreements in human relationships and in society and civilization? In a democracy, our agreements are our law.
How can we maintain our agreements?
In the process of convergence we are exploring, the point towards which all convergence tends is "center". We are considering whether all religion, all spirituality, and and all democratic self-governance can and should involve the process of convergence towards common center.
Circle is an ancient principle and method for establishing common ground and agreement in a group of people. "Circles have centers", and agreement in a circle is a process of convergence towards common center. Circles can be interconnected through common center.
The Berkana Institute says "whatever the problem, community is the answer". This vision combines the spirit of sharing and mutual trust with collective intelligence. Community is the core of co-creation.
The convergence must be facilitated.
Find and list methods of dialogue and group process, emphasizing circle as the core architecture
There are many thousands of organizations and websites supporting the action of co-creation in the world, across many sectors and spanning many specialized skills. We are weaving connections between them.
What are the guiding principles for enlightened healthy dialogue in the context of community? We are drawing together the best ideas from groups and leaders all over the world.
The world has been divided into sectors for many reasons. Sectors are natural break-points in the organization of society. But sectors can become points of critical division. We must bridge them in graceful ways that reflect the understanding from both (all) sides of the divide.
We the people
We the People are not monolithic. We are diversity itself. And in that diversity is fantastic potential for cocreation. Let's recognize that, and organize the greatest co-creative action in history.
All over the planet, this vision of a shared human objective is becoming clearer. We want to help "connect the dots" of this important movement.
Pour your ideas into a high-capacity container. We'll figure out the details after we catch our breath.
We are beginning to develop a broadcast email technology. We can expand this framework to include many subscribing voices.
We're building a polling and interview system -- that operates right here in this framework -- and also by email, so we do outreach to all participating members and agencies. This is the strongest and most reliable way to absolutely define our common ground with precision.
You can be a "network activist" helping to weave the strands of enlightened community by interconnecting individuals and agencies anywhere in the world, around the common ground of co-creation.
Bring your unique ideas and insights into our common framework and interact with us. We want to include your angle and your special insights.
Tell us about yourself. Keep your contact information up to date. Complete polls and surveys to express your point of view.
Polling enables us to find out what individuals and groups and sectors have in common, and how we can act together for the common good
Skeletal outline of the framework, lists of anything we think is important, how is this project framed and in what terms.
There are evolutionary forces governing human thought, that are tending to drive concepts towards ever-increasing levels of generality, This is a process of convergence embracing all facets of experience and driving them all towards a new universal form.
The intuitive vision of all sectors, all factors, all departments of knowledge, all taxonomy. Great philosophers and visionaries have explored this theme since the beginning of civilization.
The Charter project involves synthesizing new research projects and agendas, defined across the full spectrum of interdisciplinary and intersector community. This page introduces these themes and shows how they are interrelated to our broader single objective.
By identifying important constructive tendencies in society and evolution, we can help empower their good influence and help to nurture synergy and collaboration between them.
How do we know what we know? How do human beings establish "certainty" at the basis of our common experience? Science and the scientific method help establish the common ground of what is truly known for sure.
The mathematics of language, the mystery of concepts, the "concept of all concepts", how does primal oneness become duality?
Taxonomy is the science and art of classification ("Is it plant, animal or mineral?"). It can be rigid and unnatural -- or, in more sophisticated models, become an extremely fluent and graceful way to navigate the mysteries of duality.
We are envisioning a process of "alignment to common center" as a universal principle interconnecting all the forces for global enlightenment in a common and balanced and whole-systems framework
The religions of the world come together across many distinctions and borders. Religions can be different in many ways. They also can have profound and sacred elements in common. We work to identify and empower that common ground.
The principle of "namaste" might be the essence of co-creation. Despite our differences, "You and I are One" -- and we can clarify how this true and how we can work together through the spirit of this unity.
The philosophy of religion throughout history has found a common ground based on simple fundamental principles that can be seen as true in many (or all!) cultural contexts.
We can understand Spirit as the core energy of human experience, and explore spiritual traditions and religions for ways to guide spirit in the most healthy and illuminated ways.
Spiritual activism is political activism guided by the spirit. It's powerful because have a special insight on what to do, and ways to avoid bickering over that devil that's always in the details. Go for the good -- that's our common ground.
Straight and narrow
This is the path of perfect alignment -- all "horizontal" personal relationships held in perfect and shared/common vertical alignment
Om / Tao / Logos / Brahman / The All / The One / The Whole - known by many names and none, the mystery container of all things, from which all things derive -- in religion, spirituality, philosophy or science
Principles of universal theology, what religions have in common, links to religions
Spirit is about the good -- the good is guided by the one, in relation to the one -- always flexible, always in particular, always immediate, always here and now, the best right true most beautiful way knowable through attunement
The transition from fragmentation to wholeness involves new ideas interconnecting sectors. Including ideas from psychology and semantics and system theory, we are building new ways to envision common ground.
Connecting the dots - vision for wellbeing
It's a big movement out there, with lots of moving parts - sometimes totally unaware of one another. We're creating ways to reach out systematically across sectors in supportive ways, doing what we can to get all these horses for enlightened change pulling in the same direction.
Emergence & synergy
There are natural forces tending to drive cultural evolution. We can study them and harness their energies to help lift culture into a new era of well-being.

An inquiry from Facebook compatriots
The world is going through major changes - described by some as "The Shift", by others as "The Great Transition" or "The Great Turning". Whatever it's called, it's driven by globalization and it is changing everything.
Integrating matrix for a fragmented world
This is a huge idea. Are we really doing this, or trying to? Yes. We think it's feasible, for a whole lot of reasons, grounded in two major points: The power of databases can handle the complexity and the power of the internet can handle the connections.
Our deepest intuitions about the organisation and structure of the human mind and the universe we live in
Wendell Barry put the concept of "New Story" into popular thinking. We are helping to gather elements of this new story, in ways that are consistent with Deep Spirit and the new science of global ontology and semantics.
List of various approaches to coalescing this movement, including manifesto and factoring ("interdimensional weaving")
What is "the whole"? How many ways can we say it? How it wholeness an ethic? How is it a principle of systems development? How is it a cosmology?
Transcend and include
The evolution of concepts tending towards broader abstractions and ever-more inclusive wholes
The world is in transition, and the primary evolutionary driver is globalization. We are spearheading the new philosophy of interconnection in ways that span the full range from deep intuition to science.

The integral hypothesis
In this project, in the spirit of co-creation, we are proposing an initial integrating hypothesis that we believes covers the ground in an appropriate way. But this hypothesis is just a starting point. We want to proceed in a fully co-creative way. Please add your thoughts and insights and suggestions.
This site is a loom
This Charter website is highly interactive. You can add new organizations and contacts and 'weave' connections between them.
Cocreation is a big vision extending across the entire range of civilization. The pioneers of the emerging new world can pool their understanding.
What is cocreation?
Cocreation is the core principle underlying the unity of culture and the healing of civilization. We are learning to consciously master its mysteries.
