The Cosmic Community of Intelligent Life
Forelaws Science, Technology and Culture
"the human brain is the most complex and orderly arrangement of matter in the universe." - Isaac Asimov (1920-1992),
professor of biochemistry at Boston University, USA. (describes that of all intelligent life in the
cosmic community of intelligent life).
Every 230 million years Earth, its inhabitants and the Sun (our star) orbit the center of the Milky Way
Galaxy. The Milky Way is the galactic home of humankind and untold numbers of fellow counterparts
- many far more advanced than humankind with respect to cosmic genealogy, climate change, and
empathy and compassion for the common good (Universe forelaws, meaning and purpose).
Appreciation on Earth of cosmic genealogy - in which from infinity to infinity intelligent
life propagates empathy and compassion for the common good - is traceable unarguably
to pioneering investigation of organic matter in space conducted in the 1970/80s by astronomers
Sir Fred Hoyle (1915-2001) and Chandra Wickramasinghe, giving birth to the science discipline
astrobiology merging astronomy and biology - with irreversible geopolitical implications (moving
humanity beyond divisiveness of nation-states to united albedo regions and a compassionate/
cooperative global society). Dr. Wickramasinghe, currently, is director of the Center for
Astrobiology, University of Ruhuna, Sri Lanka. He is author (with 32 co-authors) of
the year-long-peer-reviewed article "Cause of Cambrian Explosion - Terrestrial or Cosmic?"
(CETC) - published on line 13 March 2018 in the journal Progress in Biophysics and Molecular
Biology. Since 1996 notable progress in astrobiology has been chronicled by Brig Klyce
(CETC co-author and author of Cosmic Ancestry) in the website Cosmic Ancestry. A
cosmic phenomenon operative in cosmic genealogy - no two star systems with intelligent life are
exactly the same in terms of solar radiation - explains intelligent life "races" before amalgamation.
"When Jon (Jon Larsen, Project Stardust) first came to me I was dubious. Many people had reported finding cosmic
dust in urban areas before, but when they were analysed scientists found that these particles were all
industrial in origin." Ė Matthew Genge, Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Imperial College London.
"This was our first view of the comet dust. We are the first people in the history of the planet to see
comet dust." - Donald Brownlee, Cosmic Dust Group, Department of Astronomy, University of Washington.
"To suppose that Earth is the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd to believe that in an entire
field sown with millet, only one grain will grow." - Metrodorus of Chios (Greek Philosopher, Fourth
". . . herald a new worldview that I hope will unite the many nations and races of people that inhabit our planet." -
Chandra Wickramasinghe, Director, Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology, UK.
Forelaw science, technology and culture on Earth launch the forelaws party and its cornerstone
the democrathon process (TDP). Empathy and compassion for the common good is evident
as well in current movements and issues involving and including global sisterhood, fossil fuels
and nuclear weapons/energy elimination, veganism, beyond carnism (ending animal cruelty and
slaughterhouses), albedoism (climate change), desalination (freshwater from seawater),
and cosmic genealogy (explaining intelligent life "races") . . . essential in building
and sustaining a compassionate/cooperative global society with total recycling and landfill
disappearance (Zero Waste).
Addressing climate change centers on planet albedo, i.e. atmosphere and surface reflectivity
of solar radiation. Management on Earth of solar radiation involves alteration of human
infrastructure, which, among other things, consists of buildings, roads, hempcrete houses, and airport
runways - all capable of changing surface color with temperature change. This phenomenon
- known as thermochromism - provides opportunities for positive management of solar radiation
received on Earth (albedoism) - toward benign and relative stability in weather and
climate. In working also with the plant kingdom (every tree and flower a contributor)
to achieve optimal albedo in human infrastructure, innovative and creative albedo
management paves the way to united albedo regions on Earth, and a compassionate/cooperative
global society. Through albedoism and united albedo regions, empathy and compassion
for the common good places humankind on a trajectory countering, remediably, droughts,
desertification, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, lightning-induced wildland fires, subsidence, and
ice ages. The Keith Group at Harvard University, USA, stands out among organizations
and associations researching climate change and albedoism.
Perilous yet an emergent turning point for humankind, the years 2018-2021 (launching the forelaws
party, albedo management, and Webb - and dramatic increase of desalination and industrial hemp
production globalwide) become the all-important first step toward a compassionate/cooperative
global society on Earth.
"Webb (James Webb Space Telescope) will be the premier observatory of the next decade, serving
thousands of astronomers worldwide. It will study every phase in the history of our Universe
. . . " - NASA - to be launched Spring 2019.
Empathy and compassion for the common good - part and parcel of naturalist Nature
(everything is connected to everything else) - represents a cause, norm and way forward on all
planets with intelligent life. On Earth, ending 194 nation-state divisiveness not limited
to nationalism, militarism, war (military, cyber and trade), capitalism, environment/climate
degradation, nuclear weapons/energy, carnism, and racism . . . in favor of benign and
relative stability in weather and climate (albedoism) - and a compassionate/cooperative
global society . . . begins with the forelaws party and science and moral commitment to
empathy and compassion for the common good - imperative today in relations between
United States and North Korea, and in those between Middle East nation-states.
"Beyond Carnism seeks to empower concerned citizens and vegan advocates through education and
activism, to help create a more compassionate and just world for all beings, human and nonhuman
alike." - Melanie Joy, director, Beyond Carnism, author of Beyond Beliefs (2017).
"You sat high atop your momís shoulder and held a sign that read BUILD A WALL AND MY GENERATION
WILL TEAR IT DOWN". - Representative Joe Kennedy, III, US Congressman and former Peace Corps member.
Existence of the cosmic community of intelligent life - which includes humankind and its
revolutionary new science discipline astrobiology (and complementary Cosmic Ancestry)
- eternalizes empathy and compassion for the common good (Universe forelaws, meaning
and purpose) . . . settling the question of why the Universe, intelligent life - and existence
itself - exist. Highlighting procreation fundamentally and existentially, and motherhood
specifically, intelligent life remains a gift with indefinable promise and potential for empathy
and compassion for the common good - in the cosmic community of intelligent life.
