SOUL = Survival and Sustainability of Organized Human Life

SOUL is concentrated human action determined to build the logical foundations and underpinnings and processes for Change in order to Sustain Organized Human Life. SOUL is effort, is work, is energy, is spirit, is living beings committed to Life.

SOUL is not just “a project” or programme, and certainly not only a collection or series of lectures, talks, books, articles. However, its work includes all of that and much more. It also encompasses proactive socioeconomic initiatives and dramatic new actions never undertaken by masses of millions of humans at one time and with one purpose, one goal. SOUL is taking an entirely New Approach to Changing the World. That is in part why we use the motto and symbol of (r)Evolution

We as a Human Species, as a Planetary Culture and Civilization, have Run Out Of Time.

Facing our own Extinction as well as that of thousands of other living species on this Earth, facing the Doom-Consequences of paying no attention to our current Climate Dynamics and Extremes and to our current Imminence of Nuclear War, we Must Act Now, as a People, of all nations, ages, races, demographics and personalities. We Can Survive and Sustain. Here is one more powerful path and powers we can use.


Right now, in our 21st century of generally accepted calendar-reckoning, some 2500 years after the flowering of philosophy, democracy, and a wealth of intellectual and social development in not only ancient Greece but around the planet in many other communities and societies, we are facing Demolition and something far, far worse than any previous "Dark Ages" in historical memory or record, and potentially real Extinction - if not of the entire human species then certainly of what we even loosely can call civilization. Organized Human Life is completely at risk, on the edge, on the precipice, Today.

SOUL is dedicated totally to one singular purpose – the Survival and Sustainability of Organized Human Life – which at severe risk now, in the face of what are simultaneously the two greatest threats that humanity has ever faced in all of history.

There are two unmistakable, severe, and first-time-in-history threats which will eradicate human civilization as we know it and have known it for millennia. These can be addressed and solved through unified, collective, intelligent, and committed cooperation. But if we do not act now, today, then one or both of these will be our Nemesis.

Climate Dynamics and Extremes
Climate changes, global warming, and extreme, non-linear weather and consequences within the planetary environment

Nuclear War
Proliferation of nuclear weapons and the imminent risk of global nuclear war that will be unavoidably and permanently destructive of human civilization


SOUL is thus very all-inclusive but very focused and specific with some innovative and powerful SOCIOECONOMIC programs that are now available to people worldwide and because of the global growth in communication, media, and technologies over the past two decades especially.

SOUL broadly encompasses and includes anything we as humans can imagine doing and wanting to do that will support our continuance, our survival, our growth as a civilization, as an organized species of humans, as nations and tribes, as communities and families. SOUL is literally for every Human on Earth. As such, it is intended, necessarily, to be adaptive to the mentalities, orientations, economies, personal situations, and opportunities for action, of every Human on Earth.

The Socioeconomic Program is introduced here on this website as SOUL Power and through different Talks, Lectures and Papers.

An excellent introduction to the Singular Most Important Question of our present time, “Will Organized Human Life Survive, particularly in the near future?”, is in this excellent lecture by Professor Noam Chomsky, given at St. Olaf’s College on the 4th of May, 2018.

The full text of Professor Chomsky’s lecture is here: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50370.htm

SOUL POWER is one particular path forward that SOUL is pursuing, based and influenced very strongly upon Prof. Chomsky’s answers, and those of many other wise and eminent experts, leaders and scholars including economists, psychologists, physicists, and humanists. Listen to that particular lecture by Noam Chomsky and to many others. Learn about “How can we Do something to avert the highly probably Negative Answer to this Singular Question?” [1]

SOUL Power is not about tearing down, it is not about trying to beat down and defeat anyone, any corporation, any regime, any industry. It is about CHANGE and TRANSFORMATION that - for instance - can turn a multi-billion-dollar corporation producing nuclear weapons or fossil fuels and products dependent upon the old-tech, the killing-tech, into corporations that are more profitable through changing into producers of Life-serving, Life-feeding, Life-sustaining products for everyone on Earth - and also, gradually, as we properly develop Space - not as another Theater of War but as a Limitless Domain of Life.

Read about it further here in terms of what SOUL is doing:

The Socioeconomic Power of SOUL (as being designed, built and refined today by people worldwide)


Other SOUL activities are being designed, planned, and implemented. These include public lectures and talks, some of which will include the showing of pertinent films - movies and documentaries.

SOUL is All About Making CHANGE - but this is not just "Change" in a political sense - it is CHANGE that we Must Have In Order to Live - to Continue, to Survive, period. Some "change" you can do without, or you can "live with it" or you can enjoy it as a luxury or as a long-sought right and benefit. SOUL is about Critical CHANGE in how we operate all our societies, all our nation-states, all our corporations and investment funds, all our schools and universities, all our senses and beliefs about I-me-mine and what is yours and his and hers - worldwide, globally.

SOUL is BIG CHANGE. SERIOUS CHANGE. Without it We will surely Exterminate Ourselves, which is exactly the course we have been on for some time, and extremely so, rabidly so, since 1945.

SOUL Fund

The SOUL Fund is an Emergency Fund designed to support SOUL activities. The work of SOUL, and the support thereof through the SOUL Fund, all takes logical precedence over everything else that CF = Community Funding is engaged in doing. The SOUL Fund is designed to support Doing What It Takes for Humankind to reverse the present situation where the very survival of Organized Human Life is in Serious Doubt at the Present Time.

Notes

[1] ---
The SOUL work as described here and elsewhere is a set of activities initiated and advocated by a few individuals including Dr. Martin Dudziak, founder/co-founder of several components within The TETRAD Institutes and some partner companies. It draws its founding principles from many throughout history, a tremendously long and eminent list, going back to many in relatively ancient times (including Plato and Aristotle), and many in relatively modern times (including David Hume, Adam Smith), and most definitely the work and person of a person in our contemporary times, regarded by Dr. D and many, many others as one of the most eminent and truly wise individuals in our present society, Noam Chomsky.

Prof. Chomsky, for instance, is not responsible for anything connected with the SOUL initiative, the SOUL Fund, or anything else. He has not been a part of any of this formative process nor the formation and dissemination of these communications and others. We certainly hope he will be in support and that he will give us advice and guidance for doing our work better. However, he may disagree with many points made herein. We certainly hope that we do not misinterpret his thinking on these important subjects. In any case we give him the utmost respect and honor for the man he has been and is and will be (hopefully for many more good years). We hope that he will some time give us some of his truly profound wisdom. We are all in the “same boat” because we are all humans living (thus far) on one single planet, Earth, and we are all at Total Risk from the Threats that We, Humans, have created and do perpetuate, and because we humans Do have the power to change this situation and to help sustain the Survival of Organized Human Life.

Here is a letter (03.Feb.2019) written to Professor Noam Chomsky about SOUL and our initiative, logic, and methods. His favorable reply is an inspiration to us all.
This is here only for visitors to read, if they wish. We ask that you please refrain from retransmitting with others publicly (as that would be inappropriate).
