Evolution
Evolution of Cultural Worldview
The Big Story
"Everyone is right...
the question is how."
"Everyone has a place...
the quetion is where"
Eveyone has a piece...
the question is what"
According to Peacocke, God continuously creates the world and sustains it in its general order and structure; God makes things make themselves. Biological evolution is an example of this and, according to Peacocke, should be taken as a reminder of God’s immanence. It shows us that "God is the Immanent Creator creating in and through the processes of natural order." (473, original italics) Evolution is the continuous action of God in the world. All "the processes revealed by the sciences, especially evolutionary biology, are in themselves God-acting-as-Creator".
Arthur Peacocke (1924-2006)
Worldview
1. Spiral Dynamics describes systems in people not typologies.
2. Worldviews are not the same as religious beliefs. There is not a Christian Worldview. Worldviews shape the way we express our religious beliefs and practice our traditions. Christianity or any religious tradition will be understood, expressed and practice out of a worldview.
3. The spiral is a framework for how people think about things, not the things they think about. It represents containers that shape worldviews, not the content that fills them (beliefs, values, ect.)
4. There is no direct link with intelligence, gender, age, ethnicity, or other demographics except as those variables influence the world around the person and either contribute to or hinder development. There are environments which are more conducive to movement along the spiral. Regression is also possible and these worldviews are always present within the self and at different times my come on-line as needed.
5. No level is inherently better or worse than another. They do become more expansive as the develop, since each builds on all of the other levels which come before it. All are intrinsically valuable, but the more expansive ones are more valuable when expansiveness and complexity are a greater value.
6. The theory is hierarchical in terms of conceptual space (the inclusion of progressively more factors and ways of understanding), but not in terms of intelligence in the conventional sense.
7. Consciousness and evolution seem to be driving consciousness’ to greater degrees of complexity and awareness. The general trend for human development is towards greater complexity and awareness because thinking in more complex systems and ways offers more degrees of freedom to act appropriately in a give situation because it can discern from more perspectives and options.

Where we are going
Overview of Ethical Dilemmas
Self Test
Spiral Dynamics Theory and Model
Spiral Dynamics and Communication
Developing Ethical and Principles and Practices For Messaging and Collaboration
Reflections on Jurgen Habermas' ideas of Life-World and System
Ethical Dilemma
Does utilizing “immigrants are good for the economy” messaging actually strengthen and reinforce a dehumanizing narrative and its underlying values, thus undercutting our ultimate goal of promoting a world where immigrants have intrinsic value as fellow human beings?
How do we message our stances on immigration and practice cross sector collaboration with different cultural worldviews and values systems that comprise the American population? When many Americans, and policy makers are grounded in a capitalist worldview which ascribes human value based on one’s functional fit within the reigning production-consumption narrative, how do we utilize the "immigrants are good for the economy" message? Or, do we confront these types of messages, their underlying worldviews as part of the problem of valuing and quantifying humans based on economic benefit?
Ethical Principles and Practices For Messaging and Cross Sector Collaboration
Other ethical questions:

How should developmental theory and "worldview" stages be utilized in communication and messaging strategies?

Are worldview stages and hierarchical developmental stages racially biased?

Do the concepts of intrinsic value and extrinsic value provide an appropriate theoretical frame for the utilization of developmental worldview theory?
