About Old Fashioned Thinking

Monday, December 21st, 2009

Many thousands of years ago human life was a far different experience to that which we enjoy today. Life for our ancient forefathers was a mixture of wonder and fear.

aboriginalsThe interesting point to notice is that the human body has not changed since the old days. The things that have changed are our environment and our language.

We see objects our ancestors could not see and therefore we talk about concepts our ancestors were not aware of.

Although our concepts have changed the way we think has not changed.

Thinking is a bodily process. Our muscles talk and our brain processes a huge amount of data.

Current science is able to look into the living body to observe the process of thinking. Scientists think that thinking has a lot to do with seeing. A picture paints a thousand words when the objects (nouns) and the relations (verbs) between the objects are named.

Our ancient ancestors saw other ancestors, animals, rivers, mountains, trees, plants, stars, the sun and the moon. Nature was all around them and Nature was the source of their reasoning.

When you look at nature for a long time you come aware of all kinds of patterns. The Sun rises and disappears every day. The Moon shows itself in the same stages. The plants and the animals act according to these patterns. Observing Nature during day and night generates a theory of Nature and because Nature is cyclic the ancient theory of nature was a cyclic theory.

moonOur ancestors observed short and long term cycles with their eyes and created a theory of everything just like the current scientists are trying to do.

The human has not changed and his ability to define and verify a theory has not changed also.

In our time we have developed highly advanced instruments to probe in the big and the small structures of Nature. We are able to look at the beginning of the Universe and we are able to look at the very small structures of Matter.

Just like our ancient ancestors we use the data of our new eyes, the instruments, to formulate a theory. The big question is if our theory looks a lot different from the theory of our ancestors.

The images our eyes detect are interpreted by the rest of our body. Sometimes we look with our Imagination (Daydreaming, Fantasy). Sometimes we look with our Emotions. We love or dislike what we see.  Sometimes we look with our Expectation and see what we want to see  (Verification) or don’t want to see (Falsification). The objective instruments of science project our subjective theory, our belief-system, upon our reality.

Many people would say that we have advanced in our knowledge of our reality. They believe history is a progressive process. It always moves up because we are learning all the time.

Our ancestors would say that history is a cyclic process. It moves Up and Down. Civilizations rise and disappear. History repeats itself all the time.

The proof of their theory is visible everywhere we go but we ignore the evidence. We, the Western people, believe our civilization will stay for ever because our supreme technology is able to solve every problem we will encounter.

The ancient people used different symbols, concepts and names to describe what they observed. We, the Western people, don’t spend much time to understand their theory because our theory of history proves that it is a waste of time to look back and learn from their experience and their comparable thinking process.

The most advanced theory of Physics is called String Theory. It was based on the so called Beta Function of Euler which describes the behavior of the string of a violin. The people that started the quest for the ultimate theory of physics highly believed in the harmony of the spheres, a concept promoted by the ancient scientist Pythagoras. Pythagoras was educated at the university of Heliopolis in Egypt.

Interesting enough the most promising variant of String Theory is called Loop Theory. It supposes that strings make close loops around flat surfaces called Branes. Just like our ancestors the creators of String Theory strongly believe in the concept of the closed cycle and there is a reason for this.

The simple reason is that you have to close our Universe somewhere. Our Universe is very big but there is a horizon, an end of the Universe, which is expanding into the nothing.

The smallest particles we can imagine also have a boundary and this boundary is closing the particle. Closing a system needs something that is closed in itself, a circle, a cycle or every other concept that returns in itself.

ouroborosOne of the most important ancient concepts of closure is the Ouroboros. It represents a snake that is eating itself. If you imagine the eating snake you will see that this snake compresses itself into a point and finally disappears into the nothing.

The modern mathematical term for the ultimate vanishing point is a Singularity, a hole in space and time, sometimes called a black hole.

A black hole is really the entrance to the singularity. It attracts matter in our space while the white hole ejects matter in a different space. The Ouroboros disappears but comes back in another world and starts to expand again. Modern theory supposes that our Universe has expanded out of the Singularity and will move back into this singularity, just like the concept of the Ouroboros is showing.

The ancient concepts are not of our days but they describe the same theory in a completely different way because the old scientists where using Nature as the Source of their concepts.

If the old scientists came with a comparable theory using different terms the big question is how they did it. They could not use the Large Hadron Collider to observe the small and the Hubble Telescope to observe the big. Their only instrument was the eye.

Mythic

As Above, So Below

The ancient scientists used the rule “As Above, So Below” to make things easy for them.

If the old scientists would be asked to explain this statement in our terminology they would certainly make use of the concept of recursion. Recursion shows itself in the Russian dolls that contain dolls that contain dolls. The ancient scientist believed that the same rules repeat on every level of the Universe.

They also believed that every system is closed in itself. The Big Structures are connected to the Small Structures.

The point of positive Infinity is connected to the point of negative Infinity. The Up, the Down, Forwards and Backwards move around in a pattern called the Moebius Ring (the Symbol of Inifinity). In higher dimensional space this pattern transforms into the Klein Bottle, the basic structure behind Alchemy.

If you understand one level you understand every level.

In 1982, Benoît B. Mandelbrot formulated the same theory in his book The Fractal Geometry of Nature. In this book he coined the term “fractal” to name his recursive structures. At this moment many important physicists are convinced we live in a fractal universe.

The theory of the fractal universe implies that when you observe carefully with the human eye on our level of existence you are able to formulate a theory about every level of the Universe.

The old scientists went a little bit further and stated that our Inner Universe is also an expression of the Outer Universe (“As Within, So Without”). They united physics and psychology in one Theory of Everything.

Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) was a follower of the famous Sigmund Freud until he met Wolfgang Ernst Pauli (1900-1951). Wolfgang Pauli was a genius and devoted much of his time to Physics. In 1945 he received the Nobel Price for Physics. At that time Albert Einstein called him his intellectual successor.

Wolfgang Pauli started to visit Carl Jung around 1930. At that time his life was in a terrible mess and Jung started to analyze his dreams just like Sigmund Freud had told him to do.

The Dream of the World Clock

The Dream of the World Clock

Jung detected many ancient themes in the dreams of Pauli. One of the most famous dreams of Pauli is the dream of the World Clock“. This dream is a modern version of the dream of Ezekiel and the Tetramorph.

The dreams of Pauli were highly related to the hermetic alchemists of the Renaissance (John Dee, Robert Fludd, Paracelcus).  The alchemists based their theories on the Ancient Egyptian Knowledge of Heliopolis.

Pauli and Jung started a life long collaboration to explore the bridge between the Inner World of Psychology and the Outer World of Physics.

Jung was also highly interested in what was called the Pauli Effect. Wolfgang Pauli’s life was full of strange and meaningful occurrences of Telekinesis. Objects in the surroundings of Pauli started to lift without any physical explanation.

Finally Jung and Pauli were convinced that the Dream World, the Unconsciousness, was the primal source of inspiration. They also believed that this highly unknown part of the inner world of the human being was able to affect the outer world by producing meaningful signs. The telekinetic effects of Pauli were created by his own Unconsciousness.

They even believed that the force behind human creativity, Spirit, created and sustained the outside material world of our senses.

Pauli was one of the creators of a weird theory called Quantum Mechanics. The predictions of this theory were verified with the instruments of science and proved to be right all the time. The theory was weird because it detected a strange duality in physical reality. Light showed itself as a particle and a wave at the same time.

Male (White) and Female (Black) with the Black and White Hole

To explain this duality scientists moved far back in history and adopted the ancient Yin/Yang-concept as an explanation. This concept describes a constant cyclic movement of the Universe between two opposites, called Female and Male. When the two opposites are combined they are voided into Nothing. The three parts, Male, Female and the Void were called the Trinity.

The scientists of Quantum Mechanics proved that it was possible to influence this duality by the human mind of the observer when the two complementary parts of the mind unite and are voided. This happens when the human meditates or moves into trance.

In the meditative or trance state the brain resonates and entangels, becomes One, with the Electro-Magnetic Waves of Mother Earth, the Shumann Resonance, and the Waves of Life of the Universe.

In the strange terminology of Quantum Mechanics this state is called a Quantum Superposition and the union of the waves is called Quantum Entanglement. Quantum Entanglement moves with a speed much higher than the Speed of Light.

Sometimes the fragmented Tones of the Universe unite into one Symphony when the Strings of the many Violins are in Tune. Pythagoras, trained in ancient Heliopolis, explained the same thing a long time ago.

To explain Quantum Mechanics the scientists had to assume that our Universe is not the only Universe that is in existence. To solve the paradoxes they created the concept of the Parallel Universes. The only bridge between these universes is the Hole in Time/Space, the Singularity, which was there before the Duality came into existence.

HeartChakra

The Symbol of the Heart

The old scientists agreed on the number of seven parallel Universes. They are a combination of two Trinities, the upside Triangle of the Spirit and the downside Triangle of the Material World.

They called these Universes Heavens and Hells with our Universe, the Universe of the Heart,  in the Middle.

They believed that the Shaman could travel between these universes in Space and Time with the help of his Light Body.

They also believed that the Human Soul, the Light Body, travels these universes in between the time of reincarnation.

In our Western World the Great Spirit of Creation is something many people consider a very old fashioned concept. The funny thing is that at this moment the new scientists introduce the same concepts the ancient scientists were using but with a different name. The modern Material Universe and the old fashioned Spiritual Universe are merging. The only thing we don’t want to accept is that the source of our creation could be a conscious being.

The discussion about Human Consciousness is a very complex discussion. The main reason is that scientists don’t agree about the concept itself.

Consciousness is often confused with Intelligence. Intelligence is the ability to be creative, to find simple solutions for complex problems. Consciousness is the ability to be aware of your own actions. We need our Consciousness to learn from our mistakes. We need our Intelligence to create new solutions to make new mistakes to start learning again.

The Celtic Cross with the Four Forces and the Center, The Void, in the Middle.

Most people believe that Humans are the only organisms on earth that are Intelligent and Conscious. They accept the possibility that somewhere in our huge universe a comparable situation exist where extraterrestrials live. This possibility increases with the day because our highly advanced instruments are now able to detect comparable planets orbiting comparable suns in the galaxy.

The big problem is still the speed of light. According to the relativity theory of Einstein this speed is the maximum speed to travel space. Our possible companions in the universe are so far away that will be impossible to communicate with them.

Our advanced science is solving this problem too. At this moment scientists believe that the singularity now called a wormhole could make it possible to shorten the distance in space. If they are right space/time-travel will be soon a fact of life.

Some people believe animals are Intelligent and Conscious. They feel that their cat or dog or horse looks and acts a lot like the human being. Because of this believe they treat their pets just like human beings.

Scientists are already able to construct artificial humans and pets.  They are convinced it will not take a long time to produce artificial human beings that are not distinguishable from the normal human being.

Scientists are desperately trying to define a difference between a conscious and intelligent machine and a conscious and intelligent human being and they are not succeeding at all. Soon they have to admit that their experiments with artificial life show that consciousness and intelligence are the properties of a fractal system.

ancient game

The Game of Life is played on the Square

The old scientists already believed that our universe is a highly intelligent conscious fractal machine put in motion by a creator to experience all the possibilities of his own potential. The creation machine, the Matrix, gave the creator the opportunity to experience itself, to become fully conscious.

We, the Humans, are an enfolding of the Creator into a deeper level of existence. We are not created by his image we are in his image. If we look deep in the mirror of ourselves we are able to see the creator.

The old scientists even believed they had broken the code of the software of the creation machine and therefore could become an immortal being, the creator of a new parallel universe, themselves.

Consciousness is created when the self encounters the self by a short or a long feed-back loop.

If this is true the Cycles are there to become aware of the machine and to break the code of the software of the machine to become a fully creative entity. When the self encounters and accepts the mirror of the self they merge into the nothing, the state of the Universe before the singularity came into existence.

The Mystery

The Mystery

The ancient scientists did not believe that the state of the Nothing was not existent. They believed that the primal state of creation was pure potential. It was a highly fluctuating state called the zero-point-field by our scientists and the Mystery by the old scientists. The zero-point-field generates everything that is possible.

It produces mysteries, things we cannot imagine, because we as parts of the enfolding are unable to imagine every thing that could exist. Our bodily pattern recognizer, the Brain, is not capable of doing this. Imagining every thing would turn our brain into a state of pure madness.

Madness and sickness is a state of the body ancient and modern humans have experienced through history. This state has many names in our current highly specialized society. The old scientists believed that Spirit was able to help people to become sane and healthy again.

They believed in independent conscious beings with a positive and a negative attitude. The Trinity and its many enfoldings on different levels (Archangels, Angels) could be asked to erase the negative powers to let the love of the Spirit heal the body and the soul.

humors

The Four Humors, the Four Forces of the Inner World

The ancient scientists named the force that heals the Force of Life. They believed in four other forces called the Four Elements (Air, Fire, Earth and Water) with the Force of Life, the Void, in the Center.

The first two Forces, Male and Female, are part of the first Trinity, the Spiritual World. Male and not-Male are voided in the Void. They are opposites just like expanding space, Gravity (Fire, Heaven) and not-expanding, compressing, space, the Strong Nuclear Force (Earth). Its main job is to hold together the subatomic particles of the kernel of the Atom. In the beginning God, the Void, created the Heavens and the Earth.

On the second level of Enfolding of the Trinity, the Material World, four combinations of Male and Female are possible. Two of them (Male/Male = Male, Gravity, Female/Female = Female, the Strong Force), are part of the Spiritual World and repeat their existence in the Material World.

The two other forces, the Electro Magnetic Force (“Let there be light”) of Life and the Weak Force (Radioactive Decay, Darkness) of Death are a mixture of both Male and Female and are therefore oscillating forces. They are compressing and expanding and therefore look like waves (Water and Air). These forces are also voided in the Void which shows that the potential of the Void, the Force of Life, is available at every level of existence.

The ancient system of Physics was a highly logical, mathematical system just like our current theory of Physics is. It contained just two concepts expansion (Female) and compression (Male) and showed that the spiraling vortex of creation was a repeating combination of the Expansion of just two simple dynamic concepts that were in a balance all the time. They knew that in the end everything would be Compressed to return to the Mysteriouss creator, the Void, the State of Infinite Potential.

srichakra

Sri Yantra, the Machine that generates the Matrix

The ancient scientists used the terminology of Nature to explain their theory to the masses. They also used highly abstract geometric theories to calculate the movements of the levels of the fractal universe. These theories were only available for the initiates of their secret societies.

The main reason was that they were afraid of misuse of the power of their knowledge. Science was not only related to the game of invention but it was also a state of mind. Ethics, Physics, Art and Religion were expressions of the same fractal structure of the Universe, that originated out of the Love, the Attraction of the Void,  the First Creator, for his own Mirrors.

The force that heals is still there and science is again on the verge of the rediscovery of ancient practises. The weird science of Quantum Mechanics proved the power of the mind and the force of life returned when the Mystery of the Void was transformed into the zero-point-field.

The power of the mind explains the placebo-effect feared by scientists who want to cure the body with chemical structures that exist on a very low level of the enfolding of the fractal universe. The pharmaceutical industry is using conscious entities (chemical forces) with little power while the powerful forces of the Archangels are still there.

The believe of the scientists in the healing power of nature itself has disappeared. They wanted to beat Nature with brains that are part of Nature itself. They wanted to beat their selves instead of uniting the male and female parts of their brains to become whole again.

This blog is a chapter of a new book I am writing together with Steven Strong about the ancient knowledge of the Aboriginals. According to their stories one part of humanity decided a long time ago to stay close to nature.

trickster raven

The Trickster in the Dream of the World Clock

In the dreamstate they saw the consequences of the steady increase of dominance of technology when the humans would start with agriculture. They believed Nature would take care of them when they lived according to the Dreaming. I think they were right.

The move from hunter/gatherer to farmer produced the advanced civilizations of the World. Everyone of these civilizations did not survive the strange behaviors of Mother Nature, the Trickster, also called the Demiurg, represented by the Raven in the World Clock of Pauli.

I also think they forgot one thing. They forgot that the Cycles of the Wheel of Fortune of the Matrix we live in are a Machine that moves Back and Forth. It move far away from the Void into the Darkness to return back into the Light of the Mysterie.

The ancient scientists could calculate the short and long cycles of history and predicted a new Golden Age. They incorporated the predictions in their stories, buildings and artifacts. They knew that their scientific ancestors would try to explain their weird theories.

They knew that one day ancient science and modern science would converge because the cycles predicted that.

They knew that independent minds would return in every step of the cycle to repeat the same story again and again with different words and different concepts. They knew that history repeats itself all the time.

The only thing that is left for us is to take the consequences of our current understanding of our Universe.

Do we want to fight Nature with our technology until Nature fights back to create a new balance or do we want to return to the old knowledge of the Aboriginals and start again to cooperate with our Mother Earth.

The choice is yours.

How Akhenaton started the Age of Aquarius at the Wrong Moment

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

mosesAkhenaton (1300 BC), married to the beautiful Nefertiti, reformed the state religion of Egypt in a very rigorous way.

In that time the main deity was named Amen. Out of the blue Amenhotep adopted an old deity called Aten and changed everything.

He not only changed his name (his old name was Amenhotep IV) but he also erased Amen from all the inscriptions of the capital Thebes and built a new capital to the north of Thebes called Akhetaten, the place where Aten rises.

The powerful priests of Amen (or Ammon) did not like this move and revolted. The priests of Aten were expelled of Egypt and fled to Palestine.

The leader of this expedition was the high priests of Ahktnaton called Ra-Mose. The mother of Ahkhnaton was Tiye. She was the daughter of the Chief Minister of his Father, Yuga.

bust_of_nefertiti1In 1939 Sigmund Freud published a book called “Moses and Monotheism“. In this book Freud argues that Moses was the High Priest of Akhenaten. Yuga, the father of his wife is the Jewish patriarch Joseph and his high priest Ra-Mose is the Moses of the Old Testament.

In Moses and Monotheism, Freud claims that Ra-Moses only led his close followers into freedom and that they subsequently killed Moses in a rebellion.

Freud explains that years after the murder of Moses, the rebels formed a religion which promoted Moses as the Saviour of the Israelites. This religion was a mixture of the worship of Aten and Zoroaster (Mithras). Maitreya is the Hindu-variant of Mithras.

The Roman Emperor Constantine created the New Testament of the Bible. He used the widespread Cult of Mithras to introduce Christianity in the Roman Empire.

The cults of Mithras and Maitreya expect a return of an enlightened teacher on Earth.

aquariusHis coming is characterized by a number of physical events (lowering of the sea level, strange weather conditions, decline of nature, war and other disasters). At this moment we are living in the Kali Yuga literally the “age of darkness“.

A complete cycle takes a precession of the equinox, 25. 200 years. All the epochs together equal 12,000 years in the ascending phase and 12,000 years in the descending phase.

The lengths of the periods maintain a 4,3,2,1 ratio to each other. This means that the end of the Cycle (the Dark side, Amen, Kali Yuga) is situated in Pisces and the new cycle starts with the Age of Aquarius.

mozesStephen Mehler wrote From Light into Darkness (2005) and The land of Osiris. He has researched the ancient wisdom (Al Khemit) of the original civilization of Egypt.

According to Mehler the original culture of Egypt believed in a cycle that consists of five stages.

The first stage was called Aten (The Light) and the last stage that started around 3000 BC was called Amen. This is the stage of the Darkness.

In the first stage humans are highly conscious and are capable of many capabilities like travelling in time and space with their Light-Body.

This stage is related to the old continent of MU (the Land of Dreams). The Light of Aten was the Light of Enlightment, the Spirit of Creation.

During the stage of Amen Religion was created and the priests became an important power. The priests invented the Gods and used rituals and rules to manage the masses.

The Roman Emperors did the same with Christianity. It was transformed from an inspirational movement of the followers of the Light (the Gnostics) to a very intelligent way to continue the Roman State.

At this moment Spirit and Soul are on their return. They show the coming of the Age of Aquirius.

For until now unknown reasons (perhaps the influence of his mother who came from “India”) Ahkhnaton started the new cycle of Aten when the cycle was not completed. He revolted at the wrong time. He wanted to bring the Light in the time of Darkness and was stopped by the Institution of the Church of Ammon (Materialism).

After his death the priests almost wiped out his existence. It took a lot of research to reconstruct his life. By accident (does it exist?) he send the 12 tribes of Israel to their Homeland and by his High Priest Moses started the Jewish Religion that generated the Christian Religion that was also stopped by the new Priests of Ammon (The Roman Empire).

At this moment many people in many religions are waiting for the new Maitreya to come who will restore the stage of the Light.

Ahkhnaton was a King-Poet. Some scientist believe he is the biblical King Solomon. Ahkhnaton/Solomon created The Great Hymn to Aten.

How manifold it is, what thou hast made!

They are hidden from the face (of man).

O sole god, like whom there is no other!

Thou didst create the world according to thy desire,

Whilst thou wert alone: All men, cattle, and wild beasts,

Whatever is on earth, going upon (its) feet,

And what is on high, flying with its wings.

The countries of Syria and Nubia, the land of Egypt,

Thou settest every man in his place,

Thou suppliest their necessities:

Everyone has his food, and his time of life is reckoned.

Their tongues are separate in speech,

And their natures as well;

Their skins are distinguished,

As thou distinguishest the foreign peoples.

Thou makest a Nile in the underworld,

Thou bringest forth as thou desirest

To maintain the people (of Egypt)

According as thou madest them for thyself,

The lord of all of them, wearying (himself) with them,

The lord of every land, rising for them,

The Aton of the day, great of majesty

The Final Proof of the Theory of Freud

The Act of Creation: About Fusion and ConFusion

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007

Arthur Koestler lived between 1905 and 1983. The first book I read was “The Roots of Coincidence (1973)”. Its main subject is Synchronicity.

In the “Ghost in the Machine (1967)” Koestler argues that the human brain has been built upon earlier more primitive brain structures. When a human is attacked the lower layer is dissociated from the higher layer. The human transforms into a reptile fighting-machine (The Ghost). Much later the Dutch psychologist Piet Vroon wrote a very impressive book about the same subject “The Tears of the Crocodile” (1998).

In 1964 Koestler wrote “The Act of Creation“. The book is about theory building. A new theory is a fusion of two previously separate frames of reference (“bisociation”). For example, dynamic systems theory + psychotherapy = family systems therapy.

Much later (2002) Gilles Fauconnier & Mark Turner (The Way We Think) proved that Koestler was right. They called the principle of “bisociation” Conceptual Blending. They made use of the research of George Lakoff and Mark Johnston (Metaphors We Live By (1980), Philosophy in the Flesh (1999)). A good example of conceptual blending can be found with the famous psychologists Sigmund Freud who used the Metaphor of the Steam Machine to explain the Human Mind.

What Koestler is telling is that the creative process is not bounded by rules. It just happens when two separate frames fuse. The fusion is not controlled by reason at all. The mind uses many different blending strategies like perceived internal consistency (It fits), beauty (I love it), the ability to make novel predictions (how exiting) or group pressure (They want it to fit).

This is also the message Feyerabend wanted to tell in his highly attacked book Against Method (1975). A citation: “My intention is not to replace one set of general rules by another such set: my intention is, rather, to convince the reader that all methodologies, even the most obvious ones, have their limits. The best way to show this is to demonstrate the limits and even the irrationality of some rules which she, or he, is likely to regard as basic“.

You probably ask your self why I have combined so many issues in a few lines. It creates con-fusion. You are “mixed up”. The blends I wanted to mix are not mixing at all.

Let me help you.

If you believe the theory of Koestler  you will probably see (or feel) that I am discussing two separate layers. I am using the layer of the Reptile and I am using the layer of Thinking to explain something. In both of the layers something happens called (Con)Fusion.

In the Reptile-layer an attack dissociates two layers. The dissociation is caused by con-fusion. The pattern of the higher layer of Thinking is suddenly disturbed. The sudden “explosion” needs a lot of energy. This energy is needed to dissociate just like the dissociation of water in oxygen and hydrogen needs a lot of energy. After the attack the Human is highly dissociated. He is unable to remember what he was doing. The association of the layers needs a new proces of fusion.

When something produces an In-Sight (Aha!) the fusion of the frames takes place and suddenly a lot of energy is produced (the emotion of happiness).

The two layers are part of seven connected layers called Chakras (Wheels). The Chakra’s were discovered by Oriental Scientists.

If Oriental Science is not one of the frames you use you will not understand. The explanation will not fuse. Perhaps you believe Oriental Science is not using the right method. You don’t believe Feyerabend. Oriental Science uses the blending strategy of Beauty. Perhaps you don’t believe Beauty is an important strategy.

Perhaps you don’t know what George Lakoff and many others have discovered. They discovered that Humans use their Body to Think(Embodiment).

The only thing you can do is “give it a try“. Perhaps you are able to generate novel predictions or this article proves Oriental Science is not scientific and you are proven right again.

If this Blog is not blending perhaps a next one will. I am telling the same story again and again. Every Human is doing this until he is attacked and has to connect the seven layers again. If this happens perhaps the 6th or even the 7th layer will open.

The layer of the Reptile is called the Basic Chakra. It is connected to reproduction (sex) and survival. It is the lowest chakra. The layer of Thinking is called the Throat Chakra. This is the 5th Chakra. It is related to communication and expression. The System contains Seven chakra’s.

If you want to understand the Human you have to accept the Seven layers and connect them at the right level. All the layers contain the same stages. In the 5th level fusion and con-fusion takes place. It also takes place at all the other layers.

Connecting a layer needs a specialist. The specialist needs to understand the level he has to act on. He has to understand the strategy to accomplish association. The best strategy to accomplish this is Beauty or Harmony. He has to understand that an association at one level is able to disturb the next levels. To harmonize all the layers he has to be intelligent (the 5th layer). The specialist needs the 4th layer, the Heart, to be able to take care. He also needs the 7th layer of Consciousness to become aware of this.

During the Second World War, Koestler continually spoke out against the Nazi regime in Germany – his Central European Jewish family background made him particularly involved in a way that many British and United States politicians were not. He had also witnessed personally, the growth of extremist tendencies in the region.

Koestler and a minority of writers and public figures believed that if they sufficiently described the horrors being committed in Europe in news media and public meetings, it would spur the West to action. Despite their efforts, these protests often fell on deaf ears. Capturing their frustration, Koestler described these people as the “screamers“.

We, the screamers, have been at it now for about ten years. We started on the night when the epileptic van der Lubbe set fire to the German Parliament; we said that if you don’t quench those flames at once, they will spread all over the world; you thought we were maniacs. At present we have the mania of trying to tell you about the killing-by hot steam, mass-electrocution, and live burial-of the total Jewish population of Europe. So far three million have died. It is the greatest mass killing in recorded history; and it goes on daily, hourly, as regularly as the ticking of your watch. I have photographs before me on the desk while I am writing this, and that accounts for my emotion and bitterness“.

Just like Feyerabend Koestler was a “screamer” all his life. He protested against almost every act of unjustice. To earn money he wrote many books and articles . He researched almost every subject he could find (including the para-normal). He inspired many artists (Orwell, Sting, Pat Metheny). Many of his insights were proved right much later.

Koester was a Mythic and he lived the life of a Mythic. In 1983 suffering from Parkinson’s Disease and terminal Leukemia, Koestler committed suicide via drug overdose. Koestler practised his own preaching.  He was one of the promoters of Euthanasia.

How to Create a Good Will

Friday, June 1st, 2007

Assagioli was a student of Sigmund Freud. He introduced Freud’s teachings to the medical fraternity in Venice in 1910. Assagioli saw that there was a need for something beyond analysis. This was the need for a person to become whole – to be united in synthesis.

His most famous book is The Act of Will. What follows is a long citation from Chapter 7, pages 85-90.

 “Many attempts are being made to replace Competition with Cooperation, conflict with arbitration and agreement, based on an understanding of right relations between groups, classes, and nations.

All this is basically a question of WILLING.

 The individual has to discipline itself and choose the aims which as are consistent with the welfare of others and the common good of humanity.  

There are two methods of accomplishing this task:

(1): The elimination of Obstacles.

(2): The active development and expression of a Good Will. 

Selfishness constitutes the fundamental obstacle. Selfishness springs from the desire to possess and to dominate, which is an expression of the basic urges of self-preservation and self-assertion.

Self-centeredness. While less obvious and crude than selfishness, it is also a great hindrance because of its tendency to refer everything to the personal self, to consider everything from the angle of one’s own personality, to concentrate solely on one’s own ideas and emotional reactions. 

Lack of understanding. With understanding comes the abandonment of the inclination to criticize, to judge, to condemn. With understanding is born the recognition that an individual “Is As He Is,” and in a certain sense has the right to be what he is.

For he is the product of an enormous number of collective and individual elements rooted in the past and the present, and all kinds of conditioning over which he did not have control.

The individual is not fixed and immutable but is in a continual state of becoming.
