Humanity is about 200 years old but the earth will remain habitable for more 100 millions of years -enough time for millions of future generations to end disease, injustice, poverty and more trillions of years to explore billions of worlds or the cosmos. But humanity lacks a matched Technological progress with an equal progress in human institutions which paves way towards the threatening or the destruction of humanity’s potential. The most significant challenges facing education today include giving away power without character and education does not match power from education with responsibility. Our education system often associates the idea of “success” with the attainment of more wealth, power, fame, and well-being for oneself. For the same reason, schools then become a place where students come to learn how to take well. For altruistic education, success is not about what one gets; rather it is what one gives. Hence, it is a place where students come to learn how to give well. Nevertheless, the question of developing how we, humans, ought to use our intelligence and passion is often neglected in the current education system when compared with the obsession we have of increasing our grit and wit. This obsession reflects the current state of education whereby the function of education today is often cheapened to:
(1) giving away power without ensuring that power is equally matched by responsibility, duty, moral, and obligation to others, and
(2) providing knowledge without offering the purpose behind it.
The result of giving away power without character has made possible the world where the educated could use the power they received through education to take advantage of those who are less fortunate and steepens the anthropogenic risks arising from nuclear weapons, climate change, future technologies, including engineered pandemics. Altruistic society is not possible without altruistic action. And altruistic action is not possible without understanding and experiencing for oneself the joy of and beauty of living life above and beyond oneself. Action, or the act of giving up oneself or giving oneself away in the service of others or the act of altruistic human flourishing, is everything in altruistic education. No one becomes altruistic just by thinking about it.
We’re creating the first Altruist curriculum that’ll focus on building an altruistic society through the science of altruistic human flourishing, exponential technologies and research to cultivate in students the knowledge that's beyond wit, grit and themselves- based on students’ strengths, interests and needs to offer service to others. The curriculum will steer students’ careers in computer science or programming, medicine or biology, climate science or other careers to where their tens of thousands of hours will have the most impact. The curriculum will be the first in the world to help students choose fields or a graduate study without wasting years of retraining in order to direct their tens of thousands of hours or years of work to where it can do as many times as much good. Spectrum wants to save the world right away through Altruistic education, exponential technologies, reshape education for the world and build an altruistic society. Through teaching from an altruistic ,exponentially and spiritually awakened perspective, we plan to raise the consciousness of humanity and a culture of givers to create the future of abundance.
