Dear Mr. Masatsugu Asakawa (aka Masa):

Integrity is lapsing within every part of our global community. Core belief systems that established ethics and values have been compromised by little worldviews that de facto hold onto an understanding of space-and-time that we know is wrong — Isaac Newton’s absolutes. And, as yet, a compelling, generally-accepted redefinition of infinity has not yet emerged.

Such a redefinition is required for an integrated view of our universe that is first mathematical, then geometrical, and is filled with those dimensionless constants that are currently used to give us our logic and sciences.

The most-simple, mathematically-integrated, view of the universe has just 202 base-2 notations (or doublings) from the first moment of time (defined by Max Planck’s base units) to this very moment in time. The worldwide web was a paradigm shift that disintermediated space and time and forced us to think globally. The next step is to further disintermediate space and time so we engage the universe as an integrated whole.

Worldviews will become passé and the foundations of economic models will shift as our global culture adopts a model of the universe based on value structures that truly begin to inculcate continuity, symmetry and harmony. Our current worldviews encourage a solipsism that is the basis of all bad behaviors.

These are somewhat rough, preliminary thoughts as an introduction. I will continue to study your work and that of Asian Development Bank (ADB). Congratulations on a most brilliant career.

Thank you.

Most sincerely,

@ADBPresident The global community is in trouble because we’ve lost our grounding within ethics and values. I have written to you about it here: In time I will address many of your colleagues: Thank you for all that you do!

A Natural Ethics: Not only should the banking community be teaching a new ethics that is part of the very fabric of the universe, it should require that every organization and banking system within their extended community be teaching this natural ethics as well.
