Danksagung nach 75. Geburtstag

Lieber Sohn, zu den vielen Gründen, warum ich Dich loben soll (und herzlich gerne will), hast Du jetzt einen neuen zugefügt. Du bist der erste Mensch auf der Welt, der das wichtigste Buch der Universalen Philosophie gelesen hat. Es braucht viel Vertrauen in die Fähigkeit des Autors, um sich auf solche ganz neue (von einigen als unsinnige eingestuft) Domäne des menschlichen Wissens zu wagen. Danke Dir im voraus unserer, hoffentlich baldiger Diskussion darüber.

Liebe Töchter, Schwiegerkinder und Enkelkinder, Euch Allen auch vielen Dank für die liebevolle Worte und Bemerkungen zu dieser App. Dabei muss ich Euch noch ein Geheimnis verraten. Diesmal nicht so sehr ein Geheimnis der Natur, sondern ein Geheimnis "des hochentwickelten Lebens" in welchem wir teilnehmen dürfen. Eine eigene App zu entwickeln ist viel komplizierter als eine Webseite zu veröffentlichen. Es ist sogar viel komplizierter als ein eigenes Buch zu veröffentlichen. Es bleibt für mich deswegen ein Mysterium, wie ich das geschafft habe, dass eine einigermaßen meinen Vorstellungen entsprechende App am Leben erhalten werden kann. Dazu musste ich wirklich an das Gute in den fremden Menschen glauben, die in der Sache mehr Ahnung als ich haben. Ohne deren Hilfe wäre die ganze Sache schon mehrmals im Sande verlaufen.

Vor kurzem hat mich, z. B. Jacek aufmerksam gemacht, dass diese App mit dem Namen "Erste Globale Zivilisation" nicht ohne Weiteres mit Naturics in Verbindung steht. Deswegen habe ich versucht die ganze App umzubenennen (auf "Naturics-App"). In der Firma, die meine App betreut (für 60€ monatlich) hat das geklappt, aber in dem Google-Konzern (der diese App weltweit zum Downloaden anbietet) bis jetzt noch nicht. Der Preis dafür war aber nicht nur 50€ zusätzlich, sondern auch das "Verschwinden" von dem wichtigen "Schaufenster" dieser App, was einige von Euch, wie ich auch, sehr vermissen. Hier ist das Bild, das beim Eingang erscheinen (und das Menu erklären) sollte.

Ich werde trotzt diesem, auch für mich sehr großen Schwierigkeitsgrad, weiter versuchen Eure Anregungen in die App zu übernehmen. Mit der Angst im Nacken, dass irgendwann das Ganze von mir selber abgeschossen wird. Aber was sollte es, Probieren geht über Studieren. Alternativ poste ich auch alle diese Beiträge parallel unter "Blog-Übersicht" auf meiner Website (auch in Englisch). Wir haben eigentlich noch viel Zeit (als die Erste Globale Zivilisation, die theoretisch erst im Jahre 3108 von einer neuen ersetzt wird). Bis dahin habt Ihr Alle auch schon mein Buch gelesen, versprochen?

Herzlichen Dank, dass Ihr Alle da seid. Die Welt ist dadurch viel schöner (nicht nur für mich persönlich).

O11. Interpersonal relations must be introduced immediately as the most important school subject.

Theoretical and practical exercises on how to establish and maintain interpersonal relations must be introduced as the most important school subject for all young people as soon as possible (preferably immediately). It is a necessary measure of our First Global Civilisation. If we want to survive not only the current century but also the Third Millennium as the world civilisation, we have no other choice. We must build our democracy on the basis of a Family Demographic Spectrum where the number of equal voices in any discussion always remains in the manageable and treatable number of 140-150 equal voices. The second important aspect of this organisation of the world's population is that all these representative persons of the respective groups of people must know, appreciate and respect each other personally. Only then can one hope that all the great problems that will come upon us in the future can be solved for the benefit of all humanity.

Practically speaking, all the young people of the world must learn at school that making the right relationships for life is a higher art. One has to learn that not every attempt has to lead to immediate success. We must therefore also learn how to move on from a previous relationship to a new one without hurting or offending anyone. However, not only the schools, but increasingly also the young people's own families must be significantly involved in this process. Social change is necessary, which should and must concern us much more than natural climate change. Only after it has been successfully completed can we as a global community hope for healthy offspring from each successive generation. I will not live to see it, but I wish all my grandchildren and their friends, as well as all the young people of the world, that they will succeed.

UP22. What remains for the world when we die?

What remains for all of us after the death of Nicolaus Copernicus, Albert Einstein, Theodore Roosevelt, or Mother Theresa, we know pretty well. But we are rarely aware of what remains after the death of all the other, mostly nameless people. Unjustly, because that is all of us - simply the world's population today. Without this contribution of the nameless, the contributions of the famous would also be worthless, because there would be no one to perceive this value. Is the contribution of the nameless less valuable only because we will never know their names? Absolutely not. Without the millions of the simple but successful family creations of the Nameless People, humanity would have died out long ago. The longer I think about it, the more the fact that we are still here seems like a miracle, like a matter of course. Despite all the terrible wars and epidemics of the Middle Ages (including the 20th century), there were still enough nameless men and women who together raised enough mentally healthy children so that the generational chain of humanity was not broken. The mental health of these children had to have been stable enough (statistically speaking) for these children to want to start their own families when the time came.

Today's "era" of world population holds a great danger for this continuity. The philosophy of individual freedom and the right to individual self-determination and realisation of the dreams of each of us seems to me to be even more deadly to this evolutionary continuity than all the horrors of Medieval Civilisation. Today, 37.2 % of all households in Germany are single households. 27.6 % of all households are occupied by couples without children. And only 24.9 % (i.e. one in four) households house couples with children. In Berlin, these figures are even more alarming: 49.1 % of all households are single households, 22.5 % are couples without children and only 15.4 % are couples with children. In 40-60 years, when all these singles and childless couples are dead, who will stay in Germany, who will stay in Berlin? The immigrants? Probably. But not only the Germans, but all the weak Western democracies of today are doing away with themselves in this way.

But it is not yet out of the question that they will soon realise that they cannot continue to ruin humanity the way they have been doing. Because demographic ruin also means economic and political ruin. You don't need a new military threat for that. Ongoing climate change seems to me to be only a third-rate threat in this context.

I see no other way to avert this trend than to return to a society of healthy families. And if democracy is to survive, then only as a familial-participatory democracy, which I have already described earlier in this app and in my book "Me, You, and All of Us". We don't have much time left to think about it.

UP21. War in Ukraine shows how weak our democracy is

Nowadays, people should no longer be divided geographically into Europeans, Asians or Africans. But you still have to divide them, unfortunately, according to their historical views. There is a majority of people who would like to leave the murderous Medieval Civilisation behind. But there is also still a small minority who do not want to leave the Middle Ages. They are still intellectually stuck in the thought patterns of the conquerors, the inquisitors, the conquistadors, or even the world rulers. This minority must be isolated as soon as possible, as was done with one of its worst representatives, Napoleon Bonaparte at the end of his criminal raids.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, the idea of democracy was not yet as widespread worldwide as it is today. But even today, people do not really understand what this idea is all about. It is not about the domination of the world by the people, the "world people". It is not about "ruling" at all. It is much more about the common management of all the natural goods that Nature offers us. In this, the main misunderstanding of the idea of democracy lies in how we can all together realise this common stewardship. Life, including today's war in Ukraine, clearly shows us that we - the "world people" - must not see ourselves as a bureaucratic collection of individuals. As a collection of adult human beings who all want and should have an equal voice in every decision. That can never work. Because we are not all adults of the same age. And quite naturally, we're not. It takes about 22 years for a child to really have a constructive say when it comes to world-changing issues. And it takes even longer at the end of a fulfilled life, when an old person no longer has the desire or strength to bother with such issues.

In short, the members of a 3-generation family are best and most effectively represented by a member of that family freely elected by that family. Instead of 12 potential equally entitled votes of a 12-member 3-generation Base Family, we then have only 1 vote of the representative. This practical (and necessary) reduction in the number of democratic votes goes even further up the demographic spectrum of the world's population. 12 Base Families of a Great Family democratically elect a common representative of this Great Family, who with his single vote represents the opinion of all (statistically - 144) members of his Great Family. And, what is even more important, this representative still personally knows all the people he represents. He knows the opinions and wishes of them all.

This procedure goes even further, up to the highest level of World Administration, which is composed of the representatives of all (statistically 140-150) Nations of the world. And all these representatives of the Nations still know each other and also respect each other personally. None of the Nations built on this family democracy ever gets the criminal idea of wanting to fight another Nation militarily. The parents and grandparents alone, or even uncles and aunts of such a potential criminal would put him under house arrest in time or render him harmless in some other way. In a familial-participatory democracy, Putins have no place from childhood onwards.
