I just came across this free online, peer-reviewed journal on Integral thought and practice. It looks like there's some pretty good stuff in there.

Some of you may find this essay from the journal interesting. It's by Ervin Lazslo and it's titled "Rationale for an Integral Theory of Everything".

Here's an excerpt.
Quote :
The currently known laws by which the existing things of the world are generated from the cosmic vacuum are laws of interaction based on the transfer and transformation of energy. These laws turn out to be adequate to explain how real things—in the form of particle-antiparticle pairs—are generated in and emerge out of the quantum vacuum, but not how in the course of cosmic eons the surviving particles become structured into more and more complex things: galaxies and stars, atoms and molecules, and on suitable planetary surfaces also into macromolecules, cells, organisms, societies, ecologies, and entire biospheres. In order to account for the ongoing, if by no means smooth and linear, evolution of the existing things, we need to add an element of interaction that is additional to energy. The importance of this additional element is now recognized by more and more scientists. It is information—information as a real and effective factor governing evolutionary processes in all segments and domains of the known universe.

Most of us think of information as data or what a person knows. But the reach of information is deeper than this. Physical and life scientists are discovering that information extends far beyond the mind of an individual person or even all persons put together. It is an inherent aspect of both physical and biological nature. The great maverick physicist David Bohm called it “in-formation,” meaning a process that actually “forms” the recipient. This is the expression we shall use here.
