Introduction

As noted above, the following approaches to understanding any universe of knowledge -- however it is termed -- are considered indicative of the the challenge as much as variously offering insights of different kinds of relevance. A major reason for this overview is to indicate the extent to which there is an increasing degree of formal similarity, and/or overlap, that is evident (or claimed) between:

  • the material universe (now understood as information),
  • the universe of knowledge (as conceptual order and pattern)
  • universal enlightenment
  • universal mind
  • the universe of biological species (to be understood as information)
  • a cultural universe
  • a personal universe
  • Gnostic Logos
  • Net of Indra 377
  • cosmic consciousness (Telihard)
  • Omniscient mind
  • universe of cyberspace 233
  • global electronic mind
  • electromagnetic universe
  • Gaian Mind
  • ecology of mind
  • worldmind
  • universe of spirit
  • collective intelligence -- Pierre Levy -- cosmopedia
  • mundus imaginalis 243
  • universal machine
    • universal cellular automata
    • universe as logical matric of information algorithms
