The New Age of a United Global Culture

I love the age we live in. In fact, if I had a choice to incarnate at any stage in our history, this would be it.

This is the first time that we have interconnected all the peoples of earth. A global culture has been birthed, and we are all part of it. Science and technology have had both their advantages and disadvantages over the last few generations, but the fact remains they have been integral to interconnecting us through the near instantaneous sharing of information, the movement of people and the blending of ideas.


Through this sharing of information, we have come to realize that all the various cultures and traditions are really not that different from each other. We are all uniquely human beings, with all the idiosyncrasies that come alongside that.

“Truth is one; the wise call it by many names” – Hindu scripture from the Rig Veda

We’ve also come to realize that near all the world’s religions, at their core, say the same thing: we are but one part of the one source. Essentially, they aim to bring us back to unity. The differences reside in the way that humans have tried to explain ‘God’ and what it means for the way that we should operate individually and culturally.

We’ve also come to recognize that each individual is as worthy as the next. In this emerging global culture there is no condoning of racism, prejudice and bigotry. There are no better or worse persons; only more developed or more enlightened people.

Ego overcomes vanity. At our core, we’re all as valuable as each other and all of us have the opportunity to connect with the place we began and the place we end: Unity.

This understanding isn’t new. It’s old. The ancient traditions of tribal societies had very similar conceptualisations of reality. Their wisdom goes something like this: we are each a flame in the eternal fire. We are both the flame and the fire. We are all interconnected to everything that is.

And it’s this wisdom which is refreshing itself in modern scientific understanding.


I would be willing to bet that the present right-thinking consensus will come to seem laughable in a generation or two—though of course it may be replaced by a new consensus that is just as invalid. The human will to believe is inexhaustible – Thomas Nagel

Science has been a dominating bearer of truth for a century or two. And in many ways it’s fair enough; the model of observing, hypothesising, predicting, experimenting and concluding is an invaluable approach to ascertaining the reality of reality.

In fact it’s been so successful that the scientific orthodoxy has become arrogantly closed systems of thought, believing that they have found the core answers to the question of existence. How confused they are. But thankfully, the tide has been turning and its momentum accelerating.

The leading metaphysics within scientific dogma, which attests it has the evidence to explain the fundamental nature of reality, is called Materialism (or some variation of it). Basically, it asserts that everything is made of or can be reduced to matter. Yet over the last century and especially the past few decades, quantum physics — as well as other scientific disciplines — have illustrated that this does not appear to be correct.

Regardless of whether reality is fundamentally physical, non-physical, or something else, the ancient philosophy of unification is making a comeback.

The stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the Universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter… we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter – Sir James Jean

We are now entering a scientific era where it is materialist woo-woo to believe that matter has been proven to be the primary stuff of reality. Materialism is a metaphysical argument – it’s a system of beliefs which attempt to explain the accumulating evidence. Yet with new investment and new technologies comes new evidence. And through this process our collective understanding of the world has been changing.
