The Institute is the inspiration of, and the result of decades of work by, Dr Pheo MartinUsing the paradigm of the 21st century, the Institute networks and collaborates in the areas of business, healthcare, and education.

This  website is relatively new.  In 2011, the Institute published the book,The Age of Life  as an introduction to the main areas of the Institute’s contributions. (The pdf version of this book can be downloaded for free on “The Book” page) 

Reading this book will be a comprehensive introduction to three challenges for humanity in the 21st century: 1) stabilizing human cultures, 2) restoring the environment, and 3) developing the crucial resource of the century — humanity.   Leadership needed to meet these challenges includes:

  • opening traditionally closed societal systems

  • optimizing human potential

  • maximizing the effectiveness of the increasing number of collaborations focused on solving complex societal and global issues and problems

 The Age of Life book focuses on what opening a closed system involves, and shows the strong precedents of this already occurring in business, healthcare, and education.  The book also presents the necessary topic of developing human potential.  Strong indications of an innate increased capacity for integrative consciousness (ego and holistic consciousness) are presented, with how to optimize such integration.  The book ends with showing the increased number of collaborations occurring in business, healthcare, and education, and how to maximize the effectiveness of these. 

The website will provide the Institute’s ongoing tracking of precedents and developments on the “Business,” “Healthcare,” and “Education” website pages.  Companion links pertinent to two other Institutes working specifically in the areas of wellness/personal healthcare and education are provided. Also, the Institute will be starting a program, in which those showing leadership will be able to network with one another. Facilitating such networks increases the potential effectiveness of each.

 The Institute has also generated several new terms for this 21st century:

  • QUALLE (quality of all life and the environment)
  • Service Capital (efforts that are given to improve the quality of life, not only without a profit motive, but one that typically will have a financial and/or personal cost)
  • SYNCOLLAB (synergistic collaboration process) that will maximize the effectiveness of collaborations
  • Personalization, (an interdisciplinary field of knowledge for developing that most vital resource of the 21stcentury – humanity)
  • Integrative consciousness (the balanced integration of ego and holistic consciousness — area of research/study and contribution that is very pertinent to meeting the challenges of the 21st century) 

QUALLE specifically relates to the enormous 21st century challenge of stabilizing human culture and restoring/sustaining the environment. To stabilize human cultures, global quality of life standards must be achieved.   This includes the natural resources and quality of the environment in which people live.  All societal systems must contribute to the quality of life and the environment.  The amount of humanity’s efforts in this will be catalysts for either progress or devastating conflict in this century. 

 Service Capital is one new emphasis that must occur for enduring QUALLE.  Bettering life quality and the environment is the goal — without limitation of profit (financial capital gain) motives.  This service capital thrust will be vital in achieving QUALLE.  Precedents of Service capital are found in social businesses and entrepreneurships, as well as microfinance.  Providing freely accessible education globally is another example of service capital generators.  Global Public Health efforts can be service capital generators.

SYNCOLLAB — Collaborations are occurring with shared goals to improve the quality of life and the environment.  Open Business, Healthcare, and Education models have increased collaboration emphases.  SYNCOLLAB is a process that focuses on each member’s level of personal commitment, perceptual filters, and attitudes/intentions.  Optimizing each of these maximizes the effectiveness the collaborations.

 “Personalization” — The Institute will be working to generate leadership for establishing the interdisciplinary field of Knowledge, referred to as Personalization.  This field of knowledge will be crucial for establishing the integrated aspects of human development. The most vital resource to be developed in the 21st century is humanity – person by person.  The ‘human quotient’ must be factored in and addressed.  There is already healthcare leadership in the area of integrative medicine toward this interdisciplinary approach to the ‘person.’

The Institute has tracked the evolutionary leap of consciousness that has been increasing since the 1970s.  Each generation has shown an increased capacity for integrative consciousness — individuality is balanced by interrelatedness; and, intuitive thought and intellectual thought are better integrated. This evolutionary shift to a greater sense of interrelatedness and integrative thought is vital to challenges of the 21st century.  Research and study has a place in the field of Personalization.  Educational and developmental activities have a place in preparing individuals for the challenges ahead.
