This article is about supporting those many people who intuitively believe that there is an evolutionary change in human consciousness, one that is taking place for the betterment of the global human condition. Without that intuition, the future of humanity would remain bleak. It is now possible to use the new science of quantum biology to describe how to measure the desired evolutionary transition into a more ennobling future. The good news is, recent discoveries are linking the process of survival to the intuitive functioning of the brain. The New Measurement of Humanity Project at the University of Florence is working at the cutting edge of this cerebral transition from the mechanistic age, into a more desirable future for humanity. The project is aware that the functioning of the mirror neuron, responsible for the evolution of compassion, plays a leading role in the transition toward a more enlightened humanity.
When Marcillio Ficino used Platonic Theology to create the 15th Century Great Italian Renaissance, as the rebirth of the lost Greek science for ethical ends, the compassion associated with the atomic structure of Platonic love, failed to influence 20th Century science. Leonardo da Vinci instead, helped to bring in the industrial mechanical age, which lacked any rigorous ethical scientific input.
The European Romantic Platonic schools tried, in vain, to prevent, what William Blake referred to as the dark satanic mills, from despoiling the green face of the planet. Fired by an insatiable greed lust for power, the economic policies of the British East India Company, in the mid 19th Century, threw compassion aside when forcing the Chinese Government to accept vast mountains of opium in return for supplying Britain with Spanish silver bullion.
Although attempts have been made to make amends for that criminal economic mind set, nobody can rely on the present global economic rationalism to help transform humanity into its intuitive Golden Age. Unless the molecular functioning of compassion, revealed though nano-technology’s association with quantum biology, becomes part of a global culture, then humanity faces extinction. As Buckminster Fuller reasoned, when he used Plato’s mathematics to describe his balanced infinite synergistic universe, it is now a choice between Utopia or Oblivion
If we re-examine Charles Darwin’s theories of evolution, the solution becomes part of the Florentine New Measurement of Humanity Project. Darwin based his published theory of evolution from observations made after his voyage on HMS Beagle, under the auspices of the East India Company. In Darwin’s ‘Origin of Species’, he credits the doctrine of Thomas Malthus’s economic policy for the East India Company (Darwin 1859). That policy was based specifically on what quantum biology reveals to be an incorrect understanding of the second law of thermodynamics, a line of thinking later inherited by Albert Einstein when he derived his theory of relativity.
In his second book ‘The Descent of Man – Selection in Relation to Sex’, Darwin wrote that compassion is so ingrained into human consciousness that it must surely play an important role in the evolution of humanity. Here, he is referring to the geometrical structure and biological functioning of Platonic love that Marcillio Ficino wrote about, in his efforts to bring about a rebirth of the lost Platonic ethical science. In conclusion, the Florentine New Measurement of Humanity Project, can be seen to be elaborating on Plato’s spiritual optical functioning, in which the mirror neuron, in association with the molecule of emotion, evolves compassion. This is done by employing an infinite fractal logic, which is in complete defiance to the functioning of the second law of thermodynamics, now governing global economic rationalism.
The existing heart felt intuitions for a change in human consciousness can be considered to be the forerunner of a new human survival science. The work of the Science-Art Research Centre of Australia, in liaison with the Florentine 21st Century Renaissance, is to help construct the super computer program needed to become a champion in the playing of Fuller’s World Game of Global Co-operation, by including into its data banks, the Platonic Fullerene Chemistry data, now outlawed by our economic obsession with an unethical understanding of the second law of thermodynamics.
