Bloom begins Global Brain  by laying out his chief contention: "Networking has been a key to evolution since the Universe first flared into existence" so that cooperation --underestimated by Darwin and not competition, is key to evolution. Socio-political communities will be organized primarily around shared intentions and interests, less on the basis of ethnic origins or territory  according to him.

Terry Patten in an article published in OpEd News (http://www.opednews .com, August 21st, 2010) has outlined what he calls the Bodhidharma Strategy to pave the way and gradually build a new global framework in the spirit of Integral Politics.


He breaks it out into three steps: 1-"Become Bodhidarma": developing leadership abilities and honing one's powers of conviction, 2-Help create enlightened solutions as "spare parts" for the practical problems and crises we are facing and 3-"Gain the Emperor's ear": Work yourself into positions of influence as a decision maker, teacher or adviser. Thus each and all of us can gradually bring about and facilitate the transition to a new world order.

The past is as much in us as the future, both in a latent form as memory or as potentiality. The Portuguese term saudade bridges those two infinites, both constantly expanding in an open matrix, when it is defined as the "nostalgy of what  will be".

Our responses to the challenge and riddle of Becoming will hence be necessarily archeo-futuristic and in that sense, only those who live in the remote past (in the eternal "Once upon a Time") are contemporaries of all future to come, not as eccentric figures of a conceited and rapidly obsolete avant-garde but as watchers -- Egregoroi. Cosmocratores -- of the Eternal Now of Being and Non-Being, known and recognized as One.
