Where do we come from, what are we, where are we going, and how do we get there?
We come from Primal Matter at the beginning of at least one cosmos. Matter has a great urge from within to evolve, which is shaped by evolution from without. This urge is the activation of the material Spirit-Will within matter, which seeks Godhood through material and supermaterial evolution. In reproduction we seek the best of our kind which we are able to find, or win, choosing the most beauty, power, intelligence, goodness, complexity, etc. This moves us ever upward in evolution, with side-tracks and backward-goings along the way, shaped by outside evolution, ever evolving toward Absolute Truth, Goodness and Beauty, until we attain Godhood at the Zenith of Evolution. Our societies and cultures can be shaped, religiously and scientifically, around this sacred mission of life evolving in the cosmos all the way to Godhood. In human history there have been various kinds of societies and cultures, and the one which seems most suited to our sacred mission of evolving to Godhood, and most equitable with the real ethnocentric human nature of all groups, appears to be a nation, or a world, of small states, or ethnostates, protected in their independence by a light federalism, and bonded and guided in this sacred mission, voluntarily, by religion and science.
