Cosmos, Greek term that means “order, harmony and beauty”. It is a place where each element occupies its space.
When science and philosophy offer an explanation of this order and the laws that govern it give rise the concept of Worldview in which three disciplines participate:
- Astronomy, which studies the positions of the stars and the laws governing their movements,
- Cosmology, which establishes the laws explaining the origin and development of the universe,
- And physics, as the science fundamental for understanding it.
On the other hand, man studies the Worldview ordering it in three areas:
- The ancient world view, which included the ideas of the early naturalist thinkers emerging in the 6th century BC, such as Thales of Miletus,
- The modern view, which explains the world based on the scientific revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries, with Galileo Galilei and Sir Isaac Newton,
- And the current world view based on quantum mechanics, which studies the movement of very small particles or micro objects. This was established in 1924 together with the theory which postulates that objects are independent of the observer. If we also incorporate the theory of relativity formulated by Albert Einstein in 1905, we have the new axiom of physics that invalidates Newton’s classical ideas.
This new world view opens the door to infinite knowledge and new concepts and realities. It means the Universe can no longer be understood as a static, resting system and is revealed as a continually expanding order.
From this point onwards, the Milky Way is no longer the only galaxy in our universe; it is simply just one more of the immensity of galaxies.
In the Cosmos – the great “container” of realities – there are three great cosmological entities: the Universe; the Multiverse (which contains all the universes existing in space, in time and in non-matter) and the Omniverse, a term coined by Alfred L. Webre who defined it as: “the sum of the whole Multiverse plus the intelligent civilisations inhabiting the highest dimensions with high levels of spiritual development”.
From the understanding of the Cosmos, and from the experience dated throughout the history of humanity, and from the most recent history of our time, a new discipline is recognized: Exo Sciences, the science that explains the Universe, understood this as a “multiversal” whole to which we belong together with all its manifestations.
In 1978, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the historic Resolution 33/426 under which it invites Member States…” to take appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific research and investigation into extraterrestrial life, including unidentified flying objects”. It also invites members States to “inform the Secretary General of the observations, research and evaluation of such activities”.
The New Times Report aims to disseminate the news in Exo-Sciences, and analyze the impact that contact and interaction with other beings affects in the understanding of our beliefs, our dogmas and on our own origin as a species. Knowledge that will undoubtedly force us to rewrite our own chronicle as the human race.
