We are particularly seeking cosmologists, physicists, biologists, cognitive and social scientists, computer scientists and technology scholars, philosophers, systems theorists, complexity theorists, and other scholars interested in exploring and critiquing models, hypotheses, and questions relating to the extent and interaction of evolutionary (or quasi-evolutionary) and developmental (or quasi-developmental) processes in the universe and its subsystems.
'''A Brief Note On Scope:''' Such topics as ''non-naturalistic'' teleology, intelligent design, supernaturalism, theology, and science and spirituality convergence are outside the scope of our community. Hypotheses of directionality (systemic trajectory), orthogenesis (systemic improvement) and teleology (systemic purpose, implicit to system structure or function) may be discussed, but only from a naturalistic or developmental perspective, with the aim to find quantifiable, testable, and falsifiable models or hypotheses. Challenging topics in informational and computational complexity (intelligence, mind, consciousness, morality, culture) should strive to show relation to known or proposed structure and process in natural systems (physical, chemical, biological, cultural, technological) processes, and to explore empirical/measurable/testable implications of the precepts. Please see [[Research themes|Themes]] and [[Research questions|Questions]] for any other questions about the scope of the EDU community, and  [[EDU-Talk Introduction|EDU Talk introduction and posting rules]] for general questions on posting to the list.
'''Privacy Notice:''' All personal information that is shared in the EDU-Talk community is confidential to the group. EDU-Talk follows the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chatham_House_Rule '''Chatham House Rule'''] to encourage open discussion.
