Our newsletter, titled "The Universal Vision",
is printed in color on quality glossy paper. Each is normally 8 pages
in length, printed on 11 x 17 paper, folded to read as 8½ x 11
We try to publish it quarterly, but don't always make that due
to the pressures of other activities.
Each issue has a primary article. Other contents may include
predictions, reader feedback or comments, special editorials, our "Points
of Wonder" boxes which raise a certain question, or other features
which come along as we proceed.
The primary article may cover virtually any topic, in accordance
with our name universal. One thing each issue will not have
is advertising from external sources. Our newsletter is supported only
by memberships and donations.
*Publication of our newsletter has been
suspended while we try to complete and publish our forthcoming book,
Universal Vision: The Key.
We have a number of pamphlets. They are listed below.
These pamphlets cover a variety of topics. The topics are among
the most important issues in human life today.
We ask that you keep an open mind as you read them. They are
not "politically correct", because to be so would mask the
real issues. They raise some thought-provoking questions and present
issues in a different light from what many people may have considered
before. We suggest that you do not read just one pamphlet. To get the
larger picture of what Universal Vision is about, you probably need
to read several.
The length of each pamphlet will vary, depending on the
topic discussed. Most of these are 20 pages or more in length, and printed
in a book-type format.
These pamphlets may be updated periodically as new information
is added or events dictate. Other pamphlets will be added to our list
as they become available.
do we need Universal Vision?
may be one of the big questions you have in your mind when you visit
our site. What is different about Universal Vision? Is Universal
Vision just another organization like so many others out there?
We think not. We think Universal Vision will serve a very useful
purpose for several reasons: 1) by acting as a repository for information
across the broad spectrum of human existence, 2) by trying to verify
that information to get to the "truth", and 3) by trying
to integrate that information into the big picture of human existence.
Basics: Terminology, postulates, and declarations
our pamphlets, we frequently define terms trying to be as clear
as possible in statements we make. This pamphlet contains some of
our basic definitions, conventions, hypotheses, premises, and postulates
or assumptions – many of which are then used in our other
pamphlets to document our positions and propose ideas.
What it is, and what it isn't
people seem to think that science is very difficult to study, carry
out, or understand. It can be. Many people don't trust science.
But what is science, really? Is science good or bad? What limitations
does it have? Where can it take us, and where can't it? How do scientists
really work? How does technology relate to science?
We as humans
collectively call ourselves humans. We all understand what that
means, or so we think. But do we really? Those of us at Universal
Vision use this pamphlet to ask certain questions such as: how,
what, why, when and who.
gods, nothing, or ...
ancient civilizations had many gods. There was a god for the ocean,
a god for war, a god for rain, and so on. As people learned more
about the world and how things operated, many of these gods went
away. People still have a wide range of beliefs. Some religions
retain multiple gods; others have chosen a single God. Some people
believe in no God at all. Even among those religions which claim
a single God, are they the same God? Is Allah the same God as the
Christian God? What is the real story?
evolution, or ...?
did we get here on earth? There are many accounts of creation. There
is the theory (or maybe theories?) of evolution. Which is right,
if any of them are? Or is it possible there may be some truth to
both types of concepts? Is there another option besides these two?
We propose one. What should be taught in the public schools and
givens: A look at UFOs, psi, crop circles, and other topics
unusual phenomena are reported. Some need to be debunked; others
need to be recognized. In this pamphlet, we examine those which
we think should be recognized and accepted. People see or experience
them, but others don't believe them. If the proposed explanations
for them were not so controversial, wouldn't they have been accepted
by any reasonable person? Why haven't they? Universal Vision takes
a realistic look at various phenomena and proposes some explanations
and ways to study them.
are people of earth. It seems right and proper that we be able to
live together in peace. Why can't we? In this pamphlet, we propose
some ideas which may be able to help us along that path. Not everyone
may agree with our proposals, but then what other proposals have
worked so far?
pamphlet is closely tied to our pamphlet, Living Together. We at
Universal Vision thought this topic was important enough in its
own right that it should have its own pamphlet. Here we discuss
an approach to obtaining a more peaceful, crime-free society. It
may be controversial, but we think it is the only way to get there.
earth we live on right now is the only planet we have at this moment
in time. It may be the only one we will have for some time to come.
We need to consider our environment in decisions. What does the
high consumption of fossil fuels do our environment? Some recent
observations imply that by doing so humans are negatively affecting
the earth's climate and other aspects. Are we? Or are these just
changes which are occurring naturally from changes in the earth,
the sun, or other "natural" causes? Universal Vision examines
War on Terrorism (aka World War 3?)
of Universal Vision's primary goals is for humans to live together
peacefully. Is there more than one path to get there? We think yes,
but they may have much different latencies to effect. What can we
do about terrorism? Did the events of September 11th, 2001, begin
World War 3? Where will it end? We examine the different philosophies
behind the war and pacifist movements. This pamphlet examines what
free people must do to preserve freedom and eventually attain the
peace most of us long for. To see a chilling excerpt from this pamphlet,
are the roles and responsibilities of government in a society? How
much freedom should people have? What are rights? What rights should
people have? Who or what is the source of rights? What role should
the church have in the state? Universal Vision examines these questions
and others in this thought-provoking pamphlet.
future: An integration and look ahead
does the future hold? In this pamphlet, we consider some of the
content discussed in other pamphlets, and take another look at the
big picture. . We take current world events and project where humanity
is headed. Can we rely on prophecy to help us in this, or is it
too vague to be of much help? It appears there are some definite
deep potholes in the road ahead.
