In conclusion, the universe framed Evolutionary Spirituality movement that we call Universe Spirituality may be the first spiritual movement (but hopefully not the last spiritual movement,) with the capabilities of being the first true global spiritual movement. Unlike earlier spiritual movements based upon much more partial views of life and the universe, it has new ethics, values and a morality with the true capabilities of being global in effectiveness. These qualities (and its new trans-global perspective,) born from the transcending New Universe Worldview put it in a unique spiritual position to do much to help solve the global challenges that we all now currently face. No pre-twenty first century spiritual movement has ever before started out with such a large advantage in utilizing the current scope and depth of scientific and spiritual knowledge.
