Eight Dynamic Patterns of Living: Base Elements of True Civilization (Essays on Law, Policy and Psychiatry, Vol. 2, 2018) is a study on native cultures with a specific focus on their lifestyle patterns.
The study required several years of research on shamanism and aboriginal cultures for providing the evidence that there are eight dynamic patterns of living that are universally respected and applied by major tribal cultures all over the world. The essay concludes that it is these dynamic patterns of living that are the secret why tribal cultures that apply them in their life paradigm live peacefully, respectfully and integrally, and why they are in harmony with nature and live basically without crime and major lifestyle diseases such as cancer, heart disease or immune deficiency syndrome.
The evaluation of multi-disciplinary scientific research clearly shows that postmodern international consumer culture triggers worldwide destruction economically, socially, health-wise, military-wise, ecologically, and in other ways. The reason is that our culture, as all patriarchal dominator civilizations, without exception, have lost the continuum balance that the eight patterns provide; it is lacking in modern culture’s philosophy, science, military policy, diplomacy and foreign policy.
From this insight it becomes evident that the eight patterns are ideally suited to be taken as a guide concept to be implemented in a more wistful international culture of the future, perhaps within a greater paradigm of deep ecology and sustainable growth as Fritjof Capra and others have outlined it in their research publications.
This would then have to be worked out on a joint-governmental and supranational level and as part of our presently evolving post-industrial global culture. The present study makes a substantial contribution to this noble goal.
