Michael E. Arth, describes the evolution of UNICE this way:  
  
 
<blockquote>"In recent history, our human population has expanded into and exploited almost every niche on the planet.  As dreamers, schemers, inventors, warriors, builders, consumers, and breeders, we have been like rapacious caterpillars encircling the Earth in a glistening chrysalis of technology. The outcome of our global metamorphosis is being determined by what we do now. Will this chrysalis be our tomb? Will our web of humanity, along with many other species, be destroyed before we reach our potential, just because we couldn’t learn to control our numbers, temper our malevolent urges, or govern ourselves?  Perhaps we will be cannibalized by a beast of our own creation because, like us, it will fail to sufficiently respect the lesser creatures or share power equitably.  I prefer to think the chrysalis will incubate us to full maturity, and that when the time comes, we will break out of our shell and soar like that most beautiful of small creatures, and touch lightly upon the Earth. UNICE, which will be comprised of all of us working toward a cooperative goal, could help us safely make that transition."<ref>Arth, Michael E., ''UNICE global brain project...", revised version April 27, 2015,'' pp. 11-12.  [http://unice.info/unice/UNICE-ARTICLE-Jan%202015.pdf]</ref></blockquote>
