About PEACE AND LIVE

The website www.peacenlive.com, internet address refering to the first motto PEACE AND LIVE of this initiative, is a Manifesto for the living beings. It has been written continuously since 2020 thanks to the spontaneous, voluntary and non-binding contributions of many human beings, including people with confirmed scientific background (see below site secretary resume), to seek solutions to the problem of planetary boundaries overshoot (see IPCC, COP alerts). This Manifesto therefore leads us to think about fundamental transformations that we should perform on our century, to perpetuate the action of all on Earth with respect for all living beings, and finally invites us to consciously begin the construction of the life path beyond in the Universe.

This work is still in progress and open to all: you can send your comments/questions/contributions at the bottom of this Contact page.

4-About / 0

This collective work aims to analyze main structural human organization inconsistencies and to extract some improvement principles to make the human species stronger and more relevant, for the whole Living on Earth and beyond in space. The analysis intends to be factual, to bring common hypothesis on which we can lean on to carry out the transformations. Thus this work would like to be independent of who is making the propositions.

 

Most of the hypothesis mainly come from Master of Science and PhD level Engineering University background. They have been thoroughly worked and verified, even if the effort to trace the sources has not been made systematically (notably because of the urgency of the COP/IPCC alerts asking us to quickly invent solutions; and this work is done entirely voluntarily on free time... therefore not very important in terms of available quantity). If no error, these hypothesis should be today part of the human species world knowledge.

 

The internet hyperlinks in the text may sometimes lead to specific scientific sources, but some other times they may just be shortcuts to open Wikipedia, as an invitation to start your own search for a word or a proposition of this site which you may have never heard, and immediately get a whole set of sources which will allow you to complete your understanding (a proposition for the long run: Wikipedia could be bougt by governements and put under responsibilities of National Scientific Centers so that this open encyclopedia got a real status of entry point towards scientific knowledge).

 

The proposed anticipations are elementary projections of phenomenon and capacities which permanence seems confirmed.

By the way, a general remark for academic research:
 

A problem can be well posed and a solution proposed to this problem

rigorously demonstrated from a scientific point of view, without reference to any scientific source.
 

For example, posing and proving the Pythagorean theorem can be done by "anyone" without any reference; and the intellectual exercise will make all the more progress and will be all the more rewarding for a person, if she/he actually succeeds in doing it on her/his own, rather than reading references on the subject.

Citing your sources is therefore not a way of “validating the fact that an approach is scientific”. It responds to a need to position a proposal in the current state of knowledge, to identify how the work makes a new contribution or not, the objective of academic research being to advance the content of knowledge (as a matter of fact, it brings nothing to Mathematics today to reprove the Pythagorean theorem... and to browse references will allow researchers, especially the youngest, to arrive quickly "on the knowledge front", rather than spending a lot of time re-demonstrating how all the wheels roll).

 

But this Manifesto does not seek to respond to an academic need, to see how its proposals overlap, exhaustively or not, with all the prior arguments and what new contribution it makes; it’s not trying to be some sort of exclusive.

Thus, the analyzes of this Manifesto overlap with a huge number of demonstrations and notions already proposed in History (socialism, Maslow's pyramid, Malthusianism, etc.), and in a sense, fortunately, because it addresses the same problem of inventing the most harmonious organization possible for:

The human species who will ACT and HAVE in a FINITE BIOSPHERE.
 

The problem is posed, without any double meaning to be sought in this sentence, everyone from 7 years old to 99 years old can understand it, work on it, without sources, without allusion to previous theories; just as living beings come to life spontaneously; just as a 10-year-old child could live happily, “spontaneously and with common sense”, without having to digest the entire journey of the human species. A bit like 1+1=2.
 

The approach seeks to have a popularized language, "obvious" and understandable by all, with extremely simple formulations, unambiguous words, precisely avoiding allusions to existing concepts or theories, which may be complicated, which would already have more or fewer followers and which can sometimes be linked to major conflicts in History, and chill more than one person before even starting the discussion.


The overall objective of the Manifesto is to offer support accessible to all to invent a new organizational model, a simple “system”, explicit for a majority, which would allow a spontaneous escape from the divergence and blindness of the “Monopoly game”, as if it was trivial...

Eventually this website do not pretend to be all correct. It continues to evolve regularly based on feedbacks and on the evolution of the understanding of the issues addressed therein. It is therefore possible that you will not find exactly the same content each time you come back to it, knowing that normally, if the part you are reading has changed, it should be better worded or have been enriched with more information on the topic.

4-About / 1

Thus this website wants to propose to the human species a support to invent a perennial organizational structure for all living beings within which the human species exists : this site concerns as much human beings individually as gathered in different companies, structures or communities.

This site wants to question certain references that we have inherited, references that can affect all dimensions of life, to allow us to invent together a perennial global trajectory for living beings.

This initiative therefore fully joins all the ones on-going for several decades to warn against the danger of our production model in permanent growth inside a finite planet, obviously those of institutions and NGOs:
IPCC - COP, SDG,
WWF European Policy Office, Greenpeace,... ; and individual ones as Jean-Marc Jancovici, The Shift Project, Carbon 4, Aurélien Barrau, Thomas Piketty, Arthur Keller, Cyril Dion, Greta Thunberg, Extinction Rébellion, les Crapauds fous, Alternatiba,...(from the French, European window), and a lot more on the planet.

It is therefore fully in line with the idea that we have to operate a political, poetic, philosophical, structural, cultural,... global re-invention (a "revolution"), if we want to preserve the equilibrium of the living on the planet.

And a global reinvention is an effort for everyone to understand, to learn, to transform our reflexes, to transform the aspirations rooted in our heritage, our culture, to transform our lifestyles... while keeping in mind that not everyone does have the same learning capacities and that it will be necessary to remain tolerant during the transformation.


Eventually, this site had no intention of being spiritual or metaphysical, but by deepening the assumptions common to the human species, and more generally to living beings, it finally touches on the question of the existence of life and its mystery. All the pages under the main axis LIVING : our nature and the page Built in a culture thus offer a certain number of propositions for reflection that, among orthers, religions can seize upon in order to seek to remain in phase with the extension of knowledge of the human species, in order to tend towards an approach that brings together all living beings around an ideological and spiritual content each day a little more in harmony with the whole living and its mystery, specifying its place in our knowledge and in our ignorance of the world.
 

Thus this site does not propose to integrate a clan, a party, a community, any group which would have a certain prevalence compared to other living beings, or to follow a kind of leader/guru/prophet who, like all other living beings, would only be passing through the world.


It is like a book made available to everyone, written over several years with the most scientific rigor possible, driven by the conviction that the human species must transform to preserve the viability of its planet and that all living beings are today concerned.

This Manifesto therefore seeks to take the necessary step back to face these global issues, and finally opens up doors throughout the existence of living beings.

4-About / 2

Everything about the website is mostly said. This Manifesto hopes to bring some keys of reflection, simple, which will inspire the exploration of the proposed notions and hypotheses... and above all, that it will lead us to achieve the necessary transformations of our organization to get out of its absurdities and its blindness.

Because yes we can transform: otherwise we would not be as numerous on Earth to no longer have divine absolute powers overwhelming populations.

 

It may therefore be a question of all making the effort to get out of certain heritages which may paralyze us (dominating/dominated, customer/supplier, boss/employee, professional/amateur, private/public, profitable/non-profitable, liberal/welfare state, republican/democrat, capitalism/communism/anarchism, Christian/Muslim/Buddhist/Jewish/taoist/..., Sunni/Shiite/..., Catholic/Protestant/Orthodox/..., The original breath (Qi)/Jehovah/Allah/God/The whole (the way of the Tao)/Yahweh/..., etc.) to ask us all together

the question of the relevance for the living beings on the very long term ?

to work all together to understand the origin of the problems, to develop solutions that respect everyone and the living, and then to integrate them into our lives.

 

And we are lucky to already have today the tools in place to do so on a global scale! (internet, connected hand computers,...)

 

As this work of improving our organization to respect the whole Living, based on the assumption of the "full automation capacity", may be quite technical, the scientists already world widely connected, especially through the universities, are particularly invited to work on this subject over the next few years, by setting up case studies, communicating and gradually including the entire population in the development and deployment of concrete operational solutions.

Do not hesitate to send your comments which would correct or support either the analysis or the transformations proposal, to set up your own workshops to invent a new human organization that would work from local to global while respecting all living beings, research that can start with this first proposal of key indicators:

  • The counter "Time" to ACT: ACTION relevant, rich and diverse throughout life on a basis of 1500h/year (36h/week with 10 weeks vacation per year).

  • ACTION:

    • PERMANENT

    • RELEVANT

    • DIVERSIFIED with maximum FREEDOM of orientation

  • ACTION organized like so:

0.     ADMINISTRATION (FINITE BIOSPHERE, TO ACT, TO HAVE INSTITUTIONS MANAGEMENT)

A.    PRACTICE        Cohabit-Knowledge-Skills
B.    ACHIEVE
               1-10   Production of
10 RESOURCES
C.    TEACH - RESEARCH

=>   PROTECT         Peace and Security

  • ACTION evaluated on criteria:

    • Involvement

    • Result

    • Skill level

    • Responsibility

  • To deduce a CONTRIBUTION:

    • Annual

    • Cumulative


​=> CONTRIBUTION allowing to evaluate our rights to HAVE.

  • 10 priority counters to HAVE: DISTRIBUTION of the 10 RESOURCES that covers our needs, proportionnal to our CONTRIBUTION, while respecting all forms of life

1. Vital resources :

1.a Water

1.b Food

1.c Housing

2. Operational resources:

2.a Energy

2.b Tools

2.c Transport

3. Social resources:

3.a Clothes

3.b Home furniture

3.c Culture and hobbies

 

+ Health

 

You can also send proposals for new detailed rules of the game if you manage to take the exercise further, or your ideas of actions to carry out this transformation over the next decades...

We only hear the falling tree in the growing forest,

this dead tree becoming itself a new oasis of life ...

Life won't stop
