Planetary Whole System Design Science: A Contribution toWorldShift 2012
www.lawoftime.org,www.noosphereforum.orgDr. Jose A. Arguelles, Director Galactic Research Institute, Foundation for theLaw of Time, Honorary Member Club of Budapest.The movement “Planet of People – the New Humanity’” unifies in aspiritual and ethical field all citizens living in our world who haverecognized the importance of moving in communion and who are awarethat the World is a cosmic ship carrying in its cabin all Mankind – thus alsocomprehending that those who rule it have to be people who are not onlywell-educated but also persons of high spiritual values, capable of carryingthe responsibility of generations to come. The construction of such a shipand its management has to be carried out in a totally scientific noosphericfield – as though one was constructing a satellite to be sent to space.Liubov Gordina, “Global Strategic Initiative of World Civil Society:Noospheric Ethical-Ecological Constitution for Mankind” (2009)
Planetary Whole System Design Science –Global Survival and thePath of Unification
The recent United Nations Copenhagen Conference on Global Warming(December 8-18, 2009) was a failure of the collective human will to act decisivelyin the face of a life-threatening crisis. This is because the present worldleadership represents various levels of competing or conflicting interests thatcould not be resolved. None of the leadership at the Copenhagen conferenceseemed to neither comprehend the Earth as a whole system nor be able tospeak on its behalf above all personal or collective self-interest.The fact is, that unless there is a world leadership committed in its decisionmaking process to principles of a planetary whole system design science, thehuman species will forfeit its future.There are now but three years to find such a leadership willing to adopt andimplement these principles. Even if such leadership cannot be gathered, it isnonetheless necessary to articulate the principles of a comprehension of theEarth as a single unified system. The elementary principles of a post- or meta-nationalistic thinking – planetary whole system design science – must be definedin light of the geological transition from the biosphere to the noosphere, and ofthe inexorable path of cosmic evolution, which is toward ever-greater states ofconscious unification.
Planetary Whole System Design Science: Premise
The Earth is a whole system consisting of various interactive and interdependentspheres. The operating dynamic governing the whole of these spheres – from thelithosphere to the magnetosphere – does not recognize political boundaries. Thesum of the whole system operations that make the Earth what it is possesses anintegrity to which all the subsystems contribute and support each other. The birdsin the wind, and the dolphins in the ocean do not require passports to pass fromone bioregion to another. The arbitrariness of many national boundaries not onlycontradicts natural law, but furthers any number of debilitating fictions whichexacerbate the present global crisis. From Earth’s perspective nationalism and itsboundaries are not scientific nor in accord with the actual terrestrial order.Planetary Whole System Design Science is based on scientific principles thatrecognize the planet and all its subsystems as an integrated whole. Until thehuman species accepts the simple fact that it is an integral part of a wholesystem far greater than the sum of its parts and abandons its egotistical andtribal/nationalistic beliefs of personal and collective territoriality, it faces certaincatastrophe.In support of the no boundary perspective, a further corollary in the whole systemassessment is that intelligence is a planetary phenomenon and not the propertyof any human, individual or collective. Earth’s electromagnetic field is the mediumand conductor of intelligence

Planetary Whole System Design Science: Definition
The interdisciplinary science of planetary whole system design is predicated onthe perception of the Earth as a living, evolving whole system, consisting of sixmajor mutually interactive and interdependent subsystems:1. Lithosphere (geosphere) - from the crystal-magma iron core and the variousmantles, up to and including the tectonic plates and life-supporting land masses.Originally there was but one land mass – Pangaia - that slowly broke apart tobecome the continents we know today.2. The hydrosphere - the unified ocean as well as the lakes and river systems – there is actually only one ocean and all water molecules are the same, H20. Allwater is divided into either saline or fresh water.
3. The atmosphere – the dynamic convection systems and currents of air thatdetermine and control the weather patterns, includes the troposphere,stratosphere and mesosphere inclusive of the ionosphere, the “thermostaticregulator” of the weather; linked with the hydrosphere conducts the water cycle.4. Biosphere – some twelve miles thick, the sphere of life as a unitaryphenomenon spread evenly around the globe unifies the lithosphere,hydrosphere and atmosphere, and represents the vitalization of matter, inclusiveof the inorganic cycles and systems that support it. All of life forms a singleunitary system governed by the same DNA. The human and its global civilization,the technosphere, are a subset of this system.5. The magnetosphere – Earth’s magnetic fields extending outwards from its twomagnetic poles includes the ionosphere, the two radiation belts, and the plasmicsheathe and tail extending 60 Earth radii into interplanetary space. It is governedby the solar sun spot cycle and is the link between human intelligence and thecosmosphere – the expansive medium of universal space or akasha.6. The noosphere – the planetary thinking layer - largely the operation of themost recent biological stratum of the biosphere, the human, the noosphereincludes a preliminary conscious human and a conclusive super conscious,superhuman phase. The conscious formation of the noosphere involves anartificial middle term, the technosphere, concluded by the information sheatheknown as the cybersphere, or virtual noosphere. It is governed by an informationstorage and retrieval system called the psi bank, located between the tworadiation belts. Just as life is a unitary biological phenomenon, so the noosphereis a unitary phenomenon of intelligence – a semantic field of universalconsciousness.The six principle systems define an evolutionary trajectory from inert mineralcondensation, to liquid expansion, to gaseous, oxygenated atmospheric cyclesthat are thermically and electrodynamically activated, to the vitalization of matter(biological systems), and, finally, to the point at which matter sustainsconsciousness as a planetary phenomenon – the noosphere.While the science of planetary whole system design is concerned in general withthe interaction of all the systems upon each other, its specific focus is thetransitional role played by the human in what is referred to as the biosphere-noosphere transition.The hypothesis of the biosphere-noosphere transition defines the present
