To Write A crowd sourced, self evolving, Novel(story) on TED in 30 days. With the help of the best argumentative minds in every field.

Every age has its own circumstances and its own problems, we can not continue to follow all the centuries old religious stories to guide us in the complex, dynamic, ever evolving present.

I guess the current generation is feeling a lack of guidance, when stuck to something very basic and very core, when they faced with the dilemma of right and wrong everyone needs to chose from the "self formulated/ self perceived right or wrong".
(I know there is no absolute Right & Wrong, but most of the time we have to take a stand to move ahead).

Hence today I Invite all the inquisitive and the best minds of century, in every field, at this common place, TED to at least try to formulate the introduction of the story in the next 30 days. And i believe we will take this story somewhere because i have some ideas in mind.

Just a thought to scratch - " This could be the story of the "Real Universal God", who actually gave the opportunities(various mystique) to rule over the people as REGIONAL GODS and keep the people in control for the sake of Deep Ecology. And hence this whole story tries to explore his true intention towards THE UNIVERSE .

I know, i know ! it has been tried many a times before, but who knows This is the right time, it was waiting to reveal itself.

The fact that you consider the universal God as in that all persons might relate to this concept shows the importance of applying all major religions into a single depiction that might display how your own reasoning form to fill the concept of a monotheistic religion comprised of all opinion and the impact ALL of these religions have had on humanities history.

    Best of luck! Feel free to reply with any more specific questions/whatever you have.

      Jul 21 2013: Thanks and even after wondering if i could have expressed only half of what i meant, You have Understood the 100 percent. And for that i would request you(and will request others too now) to actively participate to this "challenge to understand "the state of the art of THE PURPOSE! " We request you to join this because i think - That one should not waste the time to play with these "Individual streams researches, having limits, and has a moore's law sort of thing in development and depend on the speed of development of other educational individual streams".
      (example- understanding the infinity in mathematics will eventually solve the secrete of Universe and the understanding of astrology, - Of Physics, on how the infinite number of subatoms are responsible to produce individual perspectives(your consciousness right now ?) & how every other atom is somehow a reason for this individual perspective.

      On the contrary we all should first try to understand - 'the purpose' (with all the state of the art understanding, as none of them is ever absolute), and because it has been done before also we should right now formulate "the state of the art purpose"!

      Aug 4 2013: Actually I met this old guy at Hrishikesh and he had an accident because of my fault, therefore i took care of him for his last three months, the moment he realized i am worthy enough for something, he shared a secret with me - according to him, "there were specific guidelines for the benefit of humanity and every species as a whole (deep ecology) which were used by understanding and controlling the basic human rational errors. But these guidelines were meant only for limited people and these people used it accordingly to guide and control large regional masses under the so name Religions( he sounded pretty convincing that every ritual of these religions were designed for "acting above self & Beyond Now") . But later on were manipulated by there czars (you can guess the names). so you can imagine it as Universal God Or Universal Guidelines.
