2ForwardSomewhere around 2007 to present 2011, I have been doing research that resulted in twolines of work; “Searching For A Vision Of Humankind” and “The Levinson-Asimov-Clarke Phenomenon”. Both seemed to end with the question: Will humankind succeed,or will it fail? And, there was some kind of indication as to what we need to look at, if weare to take our destiny into our own hands and succeed. These indications, that arearrived at through much natural investigation, give us a beginning point to work from,rather than offer the exact solution, and the question remains, in so far as this research isscience done in a very unorthodox fashion, are we racing against the clock and shouldthis be pursued right away, or do we have much time to work things out? I don’t know,but when we look at the world situation, I seem to think it is the former.In this second edition of “The Levinson-Asimov-Clarke Phenomenon”, I have integratedinto it my work “Searching For A Vision Of Humankind”. The result is a comprehensivevision of the human situation, which is outlined in the former, and the suggestion as towhat we need to look at, to solve that situation is in the latter.Much more work needs to be done, and, the undertaking will be immense, but I believethere is something here worth pursuing. While the content found within these pages is alot, and very thick, it is still only an outline.Ian BeardsleyApril 4, 2011
3Preface To The Levinson-Asimov-Clarke Phenomenon.While contemplating the Universe and researching how it is connected to the future of humans gets at the meaning of life in that it not only stimulates the mind but is pivotal tothe survival of humanity, one must first address the political and economic situation, if heor she is to live in a world where he or she is afforded the opportunity to think creatively.Creative thinking, as H.G. Wells pointed out, is the most crucial factor in keeping pacewith finding solutions that can solve the rapidly growing problems that can bring ourexistence out of existence. Building a Utopia, if not simply a viable world order thatsatisfies every person’s needs, by understanding the Universe, is a wonderful idea. But,suppression of free thought will continue to rise if we do not first address the moreimmediate problem at hand, which is quite simple to describe: We have a governmentthat is basically saying that they can take everything for themselves and that the peoplecan go suck eggs.This is evident in the government bailing out banks and subsidizing the rich, allottingmassive funds to wars, then cutting jobs in the public sectors here at home and telling theworkers they can no longer have benefits and cannot negotiate the terms of their workcontracts, while giving themselves pay raises, good health insurance, and retirementbenefits, all of which are greatly reduced in the lives of the people and is tending towardsnil.The work I have done on this project so far, will remain unchanged because it can serveas a basis for taking a new direction, as opposed to being the solution itself, as it is. Thatis to say, it will no longer be an apolitical exploration of the nature of the Universe butthe direction of the research will be guided by a political activism that is rooted inAmerica being a government for the people by the people.Ian BeardsleyMarch 28, 2011
