2011: The End of the Universe -- the Beginning of the Diverse



The “Universe” is dead. This great phenomenon, the greatest of all phenomena, is dead and gone. And all of its many children are departing quickly.

For so long we have believed in the “Universe”. It guided us, it gave us life and we worshipped it, and we feared it too. Academics and scientists taught us of its immense “Oneness”. Clerics sermonized this “One” into a particular “God”. Leaders represented the “One” and its “Universe”. And Humans sought to return to the “Universe” because they had no separate individuality or uniqueness.

But this great phenomenon is now dead and gone. We have outgrown it. Science more and more is beginning to speak about diversity and change. The spiritual now is attracted to individuality and difference. Citizens are tired of leaders who set up their simplistic systems of power and control. The multicultural is everyplace, in all cultures. And the individual soul wants to be creative and not be part of the homogenized “One”.

In the third millennium, after the failure of so many experiments of the previous century in “Universal” thought and method, the old first truth is cast aside, a new myth appears.

The “Diverse” (die'-verse) begins in this new age. It replaces the “Universe”. It brings us diversity, difference, the manifold, change, evolution, creativity, complexity, and contradiction and more. It opposes the old “Universal” notions of no change, of stasis, stability, structure, hierarchy, imitation, lack of difference, and simplistic causes.

The “Diverse” brings us freedom after so many eons of “Universal” thought that ultimately brought power and control for a few -- in fact, that is the essential purpose of the concept. It is not in the end a philosophic or scientific idea, it is a social notion designed to create a certain kind of order. 

Long Live Our Diverse!
