Worldviews can be thought of as lenses through which we perceive and interpret our subjective experience. This “worldview contact lens” advertisement spoof highlights how worldviews color our interpretation of reality. For readers less familiar with the concept of worldviews… a handy worldview primer is offered below that correlates them with the style of leadership each prefers.
Ken Wilber is the author of over twenty books. He is the founder of Integral Institute, a think-tank for studying integral theory and practice, with outreach through local and online communities such as Integral Education Network, Integral Training, and Integral Spiritual Center. Please also see the Integral Theory Primer for a guide to the world of Ken Wilber and Integral Theory. It's Just Love (Ken Wilber: ISE 2 Keynote) from Integral Life on Vimeo . Ken Wilber delivers his Keynote Address at the second annual Integral Spiritual Experience practice event.
The first form Ken Wilber 's unified theory took was of a bifurcating Spectrum of Consciousness supported by a an underlying Ground of Being. This then gave way to a very different diagram - the involution-evolution pre-trans cycle . The final stage or metamorphosis of his cosmology, and the most sophisticated, is the holon-quadrant The Big Three In 1995 Wilber published his 800 page opus Sex, Ecology, Spirituality . The core of its argument was a call to integrate "the Big Three"--the big three of art, morals, and science; or the Beautiful, the Good, and the True; or I, we, and it; or first-, second-, and third-person dimension.
COHEN: In our culture of narcissism, the majority of the individual's attention is focused on the emotional or feeling state of the egoic self-sense. And when that's the case, it's almost impossible to authentically relate to the idea of a larger moral, ethical, philosophical, and spiritual context that exists outside of the individual's subjective field of experience. If someone is intellectually sophisticated or cognitively developed, they have the capacity to recognize these larger truths, but because of where they are developmentally, they will probably find it difficult to have a direct emotional connection to them. And without the emotional connection, these truths won't really carry much moral weight . I've found out the hard way that unless a truth—whether it's absolute or relative—has a moral weight to it, its power to actually evoke any permanent transformation or evolutionary development is going to be severely limited.

Conceptual design of the Fermilab holometer (Fermilab) In 2008, Fermilab particle astrophysicist Craig Hogan made waves with a mind-boggling proposition: The 3D universe in which we appear to live is no more than a hologram. Now he is building the most precise clock of all time to directly measure whether our reality is an illusion: a holometer. The idea that spacetime may not be entirely smooth — like a digital image that becomes increasingly pixelated as you zoom in — had been previously proposed by Stephen Hawking and others. Possible evidence for this model appeared last year in the unaccountable “noise” plaguing the GEO600 experiment in Germany, which searches for gravitational waves from black holes. To Hogan, the jitteriness suggested that the experiment had stumbled upon the lower limit of the spacetime pixels’ resolution.
