Cosmoethics is an essential aspect of consciousness evolution. However, beyond its philosophical study, cosmoethics acquires a much more urgent and practical application in life's situations that involve power, being it formal or informal. Due to human beings deep social nature, politics is unavoidable in human life and civilization. Nonetheless, it should be a means or tool rather than an end in itself. So, to really foster polykarmic and universalistic evolution, human politics should strive to be cosmoethical. The above described context and its intricacies will be addressed in depth, together with topics that bring light to specific aspects of human relationships. Among these topics are:
• Basis of cosmoethics • Human instincts, consciential basement, and religiousness • Enlightening psychological experiments related to power and leadership • Cosmoethics in leadership and in relations involving power • Cosmoethics, politics, and science • Cosmoethics in relations such as: work hierarchy, teacher-student, leader-follower, therapist-patient, family, institutions, volunteering, and others • Sects and guruship • Ideologies • Democracy and pseudo democracy • Democracy, coherence, and transparency • Parapsychism in power and leadership • Asymmetric ethics
Wagner Alegretti is an electrical engineer, having worked in power generation, medical equipment and software development. Motivated by his own out-of-body experiences, he began to dedicate himself to consciousness research and education in 1980, specializing in subtle energy and psi phenomena. In the area of philosophy, Alegretti has become a reference in cosmoethics and its implications. He has established the International Academy of Consciousness (IAC) and its research campus. He served as president of IAC from 2001 to 2014 and is currently one of its most senior researchers and faculty. In 1984, Alegretti started working on the development of bioenergy (chi, subtle or vital energy) transducers. His pursuit for a reliable means of biofield detection led to his ongoing research program employing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Alegretti authored the book "Retrocognitions."
