A holistic approach?
Inner affects Outer | Outer affects Inner
A (w)holistic approach cultivates both inner and outer conditions that are housed within social and environmental contexts.
This allows for optimal synergy for the greatest intelligence, goodness and beauty.
Inner conditions: general knowledge, perspective taking, critical thinking, learning new skills, understanding worldview and value systems, cognitive and emotional awareness potential, cultural beliefs, and general psychology (attention, stress reduction, wellbeing).
Outer conditions: infrastructure, clean energy, environmental values, technology access, education access, clean water access, medical care, computer learning centers, and the ecological/environmental setting (e.g., removing toxins, planting crops and trees, promoting art and inspiration).
Individual and Collective interaction: an individual's memetic (or worldview/values) affects the wider community. Shared community beliefs and norms are obviously influence individual perspectives and perspective taking abilities. (W)holistic education (increasing knowledge basis and perspecitive taking, environmental awareness, peace and stress reduction, technological skills and problem solving, etc.) introduces the opportunity for positive generational changes.
