When attempting to understand the evolution of life in a complex universe, be prepared to change your understanding of what you have been  taught or led to believe. Recognize that such a quest merely reflects curiosity about how life has lived and survived through the ages. Enlightenment leads to understanding and awareness of the significance of life in respect to this all encompassing infinite energy field that surrounds humankind. In this context you become dependent on those that have made science their life work. At some level you leave dependence on others and become independent and responsible for your own understanding of life in respect to your environment.

In the process of becoming a powerful leader one can become trapped in a web from which there is no escape. Leading a volatile nation composed of various tribes, cultures, and extreme political and religious institutions one realizes critical differences cannot be reconciled. At that point there is no positive exit strategy. Most leaders of world nations are faced with variations of this dilemma. The United States is no exception. It's a tragic human condition that drives continous world conflict, chaos, and suffering with no future exit in sight. The bright side is the human capacity for recognizing the beauty experienced through the environment, arts, science, and the capacity to love and care for one another.

The rapid growth of science and enlightenment drives radical changes as religious institutions knowledge of science evolves and drive positive changes in religious beliefs, doctrine, and rituals. 

Life begins with questions about the mystery of life and how it began. Most of what we see, and think we know, is speculation. We do know humans are divided by their view of the universe and how life came to be. The challenge is to minimize differences and emphasize the positive side of human nature. In order to meet this challenge, world citizens must participate in a dialogue that leads to understanding, trust, and compassion for one’s beliefs, cultures, and struggles to live with dignity. Therefore, this document is about world citizen enlightenment, expectations, and positive behavior.

Using reason and independence of thought, an enlightened observer of the universe, planet earth, and all life, as it is lived today, has an opportunity to form a clear picture of world societies and how they function. Until we become enlightened we must make our own world society observations and hope they are valid. Fortunately, we have history and experience to enlighten us. Being obligated to political, religious, and various institutions is no excuse for yielding one’s ability to reason, one’s independence of thought, and one’s ability to act independently and responsibly. But, who can say any of us meet this criteria. The reader must be the final judge.

Human nature makes relationships fragile. A relationship can be as simple as an unspoken contract between oneself and one’s expectation. Another relationship can be between oneself and the environment. In today’s world, destructive relationships between governments, cultures, and religions pose challenges that are difficult and perhaps impossible to resolve. Political parties, religious institutions, and special interests seeking power, influence, and control have powerful incentives to relieve citizens of their independence of thought, resoning, and  ability to act out of stheir own innate senses of right and wrong. The State of the World attests to that fact. The dysfunctional United States is one example of their overwhelming success.

If this document is to succeed, it must provide citizen insight to those life choices that make them venerable to becoming controlled by those that would enlist them to follow paths that fail to provide the rapture of living and the state of being in harmony with mother earth and oneself . The future of humans requires both. A feeling of separateness from oneself , nature, and world citizens is a recipe for failure. Global technology and instant communication no longer permits it. Ancient principles handed down by the wise men of all ages are still with us and ageless. The human challenge is to live by them. Human failure to do so defines our true nature and lack of commitment to meet even basic human principles and expectations.
