lesce divergent social aspirations. Social evolution can be attained on the basis of divine guardianship around the axis of worship.

The realization of social evolution is in need of a new “culture” not based on scientism and the creed of technology. In the new “culture,” ethics, science, and technology will interrelate as follows:

  • Ethics (primary)

  • Science (secondary)

  • Technology (dependent)

The transcendental culture through the implementation of a “consensus strategy” can attain genuine development. The realization of this aim is contingent upon the creation of a network of all intellectuals who invest their future in fostering social agreement.

The “network” has the following objectives, (1) idea generation, (2) idea selection, and (3) harmonization and linkage of ideas. The network will be based on a new conceptual system. Even science will assume a novel meaning in the context of this system. From this viewpoint, the historical and social systems shape the ethical grounds of sciences. Weltanshauug (world view) and the “why” of things will be based on “proaction” that sets the rational ground for the development of observation in the “applied” realm. In this sphere, a “relational” philosophy will emerge as a new basis for mathematics and will be in total harmony with the proposed intellectual system. In the categories of knowledge, social science will assume a higher standing. In other words, social sciences will be a catalyst to the development of human and applied sciences.
