Greetings fellow travellers through this world of ours.

This thread is one of a number of threads to discuss different perspectives people have of the world.  These perspecitives are called WorldViews.  My purpose in starting this series is to understand each others perspectives so I'm keen for you to fill out or correct the detail in the WorldView that correlates most closely with your perspective, or if you don't think there is one that matches you then start another.

This thread here explains whats going on:  http://tromboneforum.org/index.php/topic,101685.0.html

And the questions that I think give a good start to characterising the WorldViews are in item 15 of that thread.  (How do you link to a thread item?)

So here is what I think the WorldView: New Age is.

God/ultimate reality:
    Self linked to a permeating force throughout the universe.
    No transcendent god, only the good within.
Cosmos/prime reality:
    Visible (accessible by normal consciousness).
    Invisible (accessible by altered consciousness).
Humans:
    Individual more important.
    Atman is brahman.
    Growing cosmic consciousness leads to superior human race.
Knowledge/revelation:
    Experiencing true reality in its unity is the goal.
    Accomplished through altered states of consciousness.
    Assisted by meditation, mantras, mediums, etc.
Ethics:
    Good is whatever facilitates a cosmic consciousness of oneness.
    Often involves ecological and human sensitivity.
    Everything part of mother earth.
Death:
    Not the end of self.
    What lies beyond unclear.
    Many opt for repeated reincarnations.
History:
    Cosmos and man have entered a new age.
    Some stress a one-world government and coming one - worldleader.
