The Evolution of
anarchy - an anarchy does not mean social chaos; a true anarchy is cooperation with decision making through consensus, not force; it is a synonym of true democracy.
The Awareness - as opposed to the Enlightenment; the postmodern understanding of constructivism, scientism, and globalism, as well as a mature awareness of equality, ecology, and spirituality.
catastrophe - simply any change in the environment.
co-evolution - when a symbiotic relationship is developed between different organisms so that both benefit, such as plants and animals or humans and tools.
constructivism - awareness of the social construction of reality; also see "dereification" and "relativism".
cosmogony - world creation; also see "reconstructivism".
deconstructivism - the postmodern use of deconstruction as a weapon to expose the cultural realities as relative and reified; deconstruction separates the memes within any culture so they may be examined from the metaperspective, as in this book, and it is a precursor to reconstructing an alternative reality, like the Humans of Terra, as well as properly choosing one as our global ultraparadigm.
dereification - the constructivist awareness of the reification of our reality, which then negates the process; it leaves us fully conscious of our reality construction; it also leaves us fully responsible for the shameful conditions of the world; also see "reify".
enculturation - or socialization; a process of initiating the young into an ultraparadigm.
evangelical - a variety of memes, such as Christianity, Islam, and Modernity, which are not culturally bound, thus able to infiltrate alien ultraparadigms.
fuck - the only descriptive verb for sex in English; also used as power word in exclamation, "What the fuck is going on?!"
globalism - awareness of globalization.
globalization - the gradual process of bringing the human species together under one ultraparadigm after so many years of separation.
gnosis - actual knowledge gained from spiritual experiences.
hermeneutic circle - an engine of social reality construction which circulates the ultraparadigm and ultraperspectives in a culture. There is a global hermeneutic circle forming, but it will have to be brought about consciously, due to dereification.
Logos - a metaparadigm; the model of the social construction of reality presented here, which includes ultraparadigms, ultraperspectives, and evolving over time and space.
magick - written like this to separate it from legerdemain.
meme - paradigms and perspectives which can be passed on like genes in the hermeneutic circle.
metaparadigm - a model of the social construction of reality. metaperspective - a perspective consciously constructed in order to see the social construction of reality, also used unconsciously to see beyond ones own memes.
nation-state - sub-groups within a culture which have split into competing political entities; imposed on the world by the Europeans, they have become obsolete in the postmodern era.
paradigm - patterns of behavior passed on socially.
perspective - personal patterns of behavior based on the social paradigms.
primitive - simply means first, not meant as derogatory or simple.
reality - for humans, it is a model of the world constructed in the mind through enculturation; also see "ultraparadigm" and "ultraperspective".
reconstructivism - the postmodern use of constructivism to create a dialogue concerning the conscious social reconstruction of reality for a global civilization after the devastation caused by relativism and dereification.
reify - the ability to create our own reality and then forget we have done so; also see "dereification".
relativism - the constructivist awareness that all of the existing cultural realities, or ultraparadigms, are relative to their time and place, thus not the Truth, but only versions of truth; also see "reality".
scientism - awareness of the scientific data concerning the make up of the material world.
scope - the boundary of a reality.
Terra - Terra Mater is a more appropriate name than "Earth" (which is a misnomer), and it is in keeping with the Roman deities.
transsensual - cannot be perceived by the physical senses.
Truth - the seemingly unattainable answer to the question, "What the fuck is going on?"
ultraparadigm - the groups abstract reality, based on the ultraperspectives of its members; also see "hermeneutic circle".
ultraperspective - an individuals own reality, based on the ultraparadigm of their culture, also see "hermeneutic circle".
