EVOLUTION TRENDS  

The "INFORMATION AGE" & its Evolution into the "Holographic Age"

Challenges & Realistic Goals For Survival & Creating A Desirable Future
The term "evolution" refers to the maturation of human consciousness, such as may result in lasting change on the emotional & physical levels as well.

Note:
 
        We are now just past what I referred to as "the next decade" (in the original paper) wherein so much was/continues to be determined about how - and how soon - we begin this next age - or if we do - before the planet (otherwise) overhauls itself. But if we do get through all that,
       
"... We will have the unique opportunity to learn first-hand from the most hi-tech, research data-backed, psychological ...Awareness on/of the various levels & interrelationships between these areas... intuition may find an unprecedented role ...its popular integration with the more logical approaches ...various systems of 'Integrated Diagnostics' will be developed..." and much, much more. (Excerpts from the essay below.)
        I believe in the "100th Monkey" threshold effect, where, in this case, what we might now call "Miracles" would be (events) described simply by enough of us beginning and/or continuing to do what we know in conscience that we need to do - until that threshold effect makes it relevant to us that we have brought the rest of humanity on board the Earth Steward Ship. - cp, Dec'11

[ This section *ADDED* since original 1995 publication of the "Evo-Trends" essay ]

          Why Track Trends? To me it's like accounting - what good is it unless it tells you how to stay in the green, out of the red? I'm not that great with money, but I believe trends watchers can be the most useful in this way. Considering the accuracy of this writer - for the '95 to 2005 period - you might be interested in the assessment (and the timing in that) which is based on a system described below. This writing is about trends in our evolution, as well as about events and processes. When I use the term "evolution" at this website, I am referring to the psycho-social evolution of humankind, resulting in lasting change on the physical level (particularly with the brain), and not to the science of evolution and the controversy around that. And usually from the perspective or paradigm that looks at the recent psycho-social trends - in comparison to the overall course of mankind. That also includes the political and technical, especially as relates to health care.

         The current "Information Age" represents society's evolution into definition, comparison, Specialization of information (mental as well as emotional and physical), and the utilization/manipulation of that data. Eventually we will be entering into what I refer to as the next level of our evolution, or what I call the "Holographic Age." The Holographic Age will be marked by the integration of data and data systems (a precursor and main component of the Holographic age), not just the current global-scale collection and organization of data and data systems. In the Holographic Age there is the realization of synergy and "connectedness" -how everything reflects and effects everything else. (Some relationships do so more integrally/dramatically than others).

         Assessing the how we get from here to there: A useful assessment of any situation - to determine ones course of action - weighs current and future assets (i.e.: resources and tools), liabilities, challenges and objectives. Granted, while I am not the worst student of history, I have used a relatively esoteric system of assessment to analyze the evolution of the planetary population (taking into account the assessments of many others' far more experienced at this than I). The system which I have come to call the "Seven Phases of Evolution" [described in the section of same title, further below] is the system I have drawn on primarily to render probabilities for "where we are" along the spectrum of evolution, what current trends look like -- from many different perspectives, you could say-- and from there, to render probability scenarios for where we are/may be going in the near and moderately distant future - the 'signs of the times'.

HOW THIS FUTURE TRENDS SCENARIO CAME INTO BEING

[ As desired, see ORIGINAL version in right column ]

          The origins: Not long after reading some of the articles in the Sept-Oct '95 issue of The Futurist (including "Telemedicine" by Thomas Blanton and David C. Balch, "The Age of Multimedia and Turbonews" by Jim Willis, and "Crime in Psyberspace" by Gene Stephens), I began getting some ideas of my (?) own about our transition into what I'm calling "the holographic age." But what very rapidly came through my filters was written down on some notebook paper in a sort of block diagram flow chart (see at the top of the scanned copy, below).

          The blocks in the diagram represented events that seemed to logically occur in cause-and-effect relationship, laid out more functionally than chronologically for the different 'event paths' with lots of arrows, some heavier and some lighter. I saw the lines of cause and effect, if you will, even though it seems that I access probability arrays or probability fields as the sources of this information. There were a lot of "if this, then this" kind of spiral-offs (only semi-analytically derived) that gave lots of flexibility to the event paths. However, there was not much flexibility (not much more than noted in the text) when it came to the critical events of next few years (up to about year 2005). But even as the event paths were being constructed, jumping between one event path and another before one may be even half-done, arrows were drawn connecting them to other event paths.

          Eventually it could be seen that almost any one event path effected the flow/outcome of each other event path, creating a interwoven feedback system of 'event systems,' as it were. Then came the notes, including in the margins. And the arrows between the blocks led to as much text as for the events sometimes as I did my best to connect the events with how's and why's (based on systems referred to below).

          While the original version of "Evolution Trends..." was posted in 1995 (see paragraph with link below), for various reasons I did not actually scan in these notes until 2005 or more - referring to the first graphic shown below. There was my lack of knowledge of and/or access to such technology for some years, and then some years when I simply focused on other things. In any case, since I have been creating more charts lately, I've realized that most people can get lost in such a chart as this. And so it was perhaps necessary in any case that I developed the more linear chart, which I introduce and show you further below. I've included the whole pages of notes as well as the chart sketch because to me any one note on the them seems almost inextractible from the other. [ --cp, 3'07].

          The Hint: I've called it a projection, or an extrapolation from "probability arrays," at times even a prognostication. But as also noted in the "Evo-Trends" essay description (on other web pages; see partial copy just below), the "system" I used was based on the "Seven Phases of Evolution" as detailed in Dec'09. So there was actually a kind of science to it, albeit one that no western scientist would call it that. What I haven't said, even fully realized, until now is that the "Third Chakra" phase was practically foretold. That is, the events of the "the 60's" was (well, *should* have been?) the biggest hint of changes to come.
         Why? Just because "the hippies went back to their corporate jobs," that didn't mean that their [no]   OUR very psycho-emotional ground didn't begin to shift. Nor was it that "the denial" of the ever more blatant abuse by the (albeit increasingly exposed) military industrial complex (even if that directly resulted in dramatically increased drug abuse as well) blinded us to the "New Age" or alternative healing news bubbling through from the fringes to "the real world" albeit preping for "info-tainment" tv.
         Ok, so many folks were distracted while I was still studying that alternative healing, consciousness, psychology... and I "missed" the 60's (and 70's!) for kind of maybe sort of similar reasons (explained in the "From Marine to Veteran for Peace (Bio)" section at the PolyPsyArts page). In any case, in the early 90's I took the time to note the shifts and paradoxes [and growing my hair long into a pony tail... but I digress], collecting a lot of news articles, noticing what seemed like patterns, until I had to write those notes. Writing it "brought in" more elements. And as noted just below, "Some intuition did enter in..." So what's that got to do with "the third chakra? Another reason to read "Seven Phases of Evolution"?   ["The Hint" added 8/1/16, ~cp]


Link to The Original "Evolution Trends..." essay
(text file - copied from email, including the headers)

          Added here for the skeptical mind, which I can appreciate. It was first posted November 22, 1995, on a listserve, "Spiritual Implications for Medicine and Psychology" (Spiramed@sjuvm.stjohns.Edu), and a few days later on "The Intuition Network" of The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS, listserv@intuition.org). Yes, *1995* - So I guess the "system" I used was not so bad (based on the "Seven Phases of Evolution" section below). While intuition did enter in, I've never called this "a prophecy," but a perceived spiritual challenge with potentially great rewards - an opportunity for taking responsibility. That 10 year 'prep' period has come (and gone?) - wherein so much is being (has been?) determined about how and how soon we begin this next age - or if we do before the planet (otherwise) overhauls itself. But remember "that spaceship" that's going to save us ? Wink Well, IF it happens, not to worry, we won't miss a minute of it. Because, IMO, the pilots are none other than ourselves - our Earth-Steward selves that is. And besides, IMO, God wouldn't deprive us of the realization that we are so capable! (And responsible. Or don't we want to earn our way ?!) [2009, 2013]

 
How this future trends scenario came into being
(Original Version, 1995):

(Added here Oct'16 with improved formatting)

         Not long after reading some of the articles in the Sept-Oct `95 issue of The Futurist, including "Telemedicine" by Thomas Blanton and David C. Balch, "The Age of Multimedia and Turbonews" by Jim Willis, and "Crime in Psyberspace" by Gene Stephens, I began getting some ideas of my (?) own about our transition into what I'm calling "the holographic age." But what came through my filters came pretty fast and was written down on paper in a sort of block diagram flow chart with lots of arrows, some heavier and some lighter.

          Then came the notes, including in the margins, which I've done my best to edit into an understandable and grounded form below. This is not much like any of the articles I read, but as it flowed out on paper, it just seemed to me to be too "logical" not to be valid. (Well, Even if I strongly suspect that my ego would love the idea of being "right".

         I do have some concerns about how some of these things work out; not evolved past all those attachments just yet.) Some of the "logic" is based on theosophical principles of evolution, as per Alice Bailey. I've done my best to make the below chart a useful representation of the original intuitive flowchart, in spite of its overly linear style with its noted limitations.

         As you read this essay's chart and text, the developments and increases in societal awareness, noted in any one area of focus, will be best understood when taken in context with that noted for other areas. This way of understanding -- in referential context -- might serve as one, very basic, functional component of the holographic age itself. I'm curious as to how others (who are interested in Alternative Medicine, Psychology, and Spiritual Evolution, etc.) might look at the probable futures, what they might think of this scenario(s), and what they might add or substitute themselves.

         Our trial and initiation prior to entering the next age is dealing with the issue of "Polarization." So much depends on how we manage this issue during the 1995 - 2005 period of time, its challenges are and will be critical on many levels.
          The implications may therefore be timely, a balance of warning with hope and direction. [Events occurring since I wrote this haven't convinced me otherwise. -cp, 11'06] Here we [a much greater percentage of us] come to know and feel what and how others know and feel, whether or not we agree with or have understanding for the bearers of that knowing and feeling.
          Polarization occurs when we take a strongly attached position on one end or another of any issue or continuum of perspective (also see below section: "Rehabilitation"). That is just what has been happening in the last decade or so [prior to 1995], one of the 1st decades of Earth's society having moved into the information age [third of 7 phases or levels of our evolution]. Eventually we will be entering into the next age [4th phase or level], which I will refer to as the Holographic Age. In the Holographic Age there is the realization of synergy and "connectedness" -how everything reflects and effects everything else (and some relationships more integrally/dramatically than others) -- by all people on the planet.

          Between now and then, the integration of data (a precursor and main component of the Holographic age), not just the current global-scale collection and organization of data and data systems, will bring about a tremendous explosion in capabilities of unprecedented scope, magnitude, and depth. The ability to offer/affect pre-designed physiological, emotional, mental, and psychic change on human beings, from conception on or even at the adult stage, for most any condition we know of today, for individuals or for whole communities, will be a relatively easy task to master-whether for healing or for manipulation. "Permanent" change does not result, I believe, unless the change is fully integrated from within. Still, the capacity for ill-intention to do damaging change-severe enough to take decades or centuries to be re- balanced-would be possible. This depends much on the degree of awareness, of different types and on different levels, of society as a whole. (I elaborate more on the very bright side of this time in the "Trends and Developments" section.)

          These "powers" for creating change will then either be constructively harnessed with the necessarily simultaneous healing and re-education of society, or hidden by a centralized government and used on a martial-law-contained society, or they will be the instruments of a painful death of humanity on the planet. Even with the constructive harnessing there will be the hard lessons in the near future involving the attempts to manipulate society with greater sophistication than most people could even imagine. Already there has been decades of research and somewhat "technologically successful" development-by covert segments of various governments, at some expense to innocent people and societies-into many areas of technology that most people call science fiction. This includes media manipulation, genetic research on humans, inter-planetary travel, psychic manipulation, broad political blackmail by former intelligence officials, and electromagnetic radiation.

          We are now facilitating opportunities whereby societies can actually benefit from this type and depth of research and the technologies that have been developing from them. It is up to aware and responsible individuals to insure this comes about with their integration into the other generally benign developments and not with their polarization into divisive or overt/covert opposites.

 

Chart - "Interconnecting Key Elements in the Evolvement of Planet Earth"
About the more linear chart *below*:

          One function of the chart is to give an idea of various primary areas important to human evolution, a little about how things may progress in any one given area, but very much about how progress in any one area may effect progress in another. As you read this essay's chart and text, the developments and increases in societal awareness, noted in any one area of focus, will be best understood when taken in context with that noted for other areas. This way of understanding -in referential context- might serve as one, very basic, functional component of the holographic age itself.
          I hope the following is helpful in interpreting the more linear representation of the original flowchart:

ChaliceBridging&CDC-Logo3c[noUrl]-200px.png

          I have attempted to use [rounded] brackets to indicate some of the major cross-discipline connections to indicate how probabilities are likely that advances in various modalities lead to advances in various others . Many events in the (3rd) "Synergy" column would be brought about necessarily through integration of research in one or more of the above and/or below (1st column) "Discipline/Modalities," and also through development of increased awareness of areas noted in the 2nd "Areas of Research, Awareness, and Development" column. As a horizontal chart, any events noted are not necessarily listed in chronological order.
          Therefore this chart does not indicate effectively (what I sense to be) the process of events in time for any one discipline, let alone all the critical cause & effect connections/integrations that may - now or eventually - exist [vertically][eg: particularly among those elements in the same column, ie: between "Data Process Tech" and "Media Marketing Technology" in 1st column, not mention such possible(?) cross-discipline communication among the aformentioned and say "Whole Systems Diagnosis/Healing"] between the different disciplines and areas of research, awareness, and development. [In the not too distant future, I hope to use my current skills in chart-making to provide something far more illustrative of the cross-discipline interconnectedness and functional flow of cause and effect that I see among the elements depicted, as well as any chronology/time ranges indicated or estimated in the text of this essay. -cp, 3'07]

SOME TRENDS AND DEVELOPMENTS IN HEALTH & ENVIRONMENT

[ ADDITIONS & REVISIONS since original 1995 publishing have been INCLUDED IN BRACKETS,
or in a side column likely with images, or otherwise noted, and often dated
]


          Many areas of medicine and psychology are breaking through into "the next phases" of their functional development, as noted in the chart ["Interconnecting Key Elements..." above].

3D Chalice TransformingTapestry5 Flower Of Life DarkA1' sig'd, © Chris Pringer, 2010

          There will be a much increased general interest and medical emphasis on life longevity and preventive maintenance-and more subtly, the increased body-mind awareness that they often result in and/or are integral with. The idea and application of self'-healing techniques will grow. The practice of medicine will range in modality between two camps, although both will be relatively progressive by today's general perspective: Medical-Technology, championed by Customized Genetic Manipulation and Electro-magnetic Radiation, and "Natural" Healing, championed by Naturopathic Psychologists and "Psychic Healers". Included in between these two camps will be the more conventional surgical and pharmaceutical approach (though not conventional by today's standards), the not too estranged herbalism and the much integrated modalities of psychology, psycho-physiology, and psycho-neuro-immunology (including prescribed bodywork). And, of course there will be the very popular use of therapeutic massage and the only slightly less common Self-Healing/Personal Growth studies.
          The Hi-Tech medicine will include the use of crystal technologies (and/or the electromagnetic equivalent) and meridian-affecting therapies (originated by acupuncture). BioFeedback systems will incorporate mechanisms for subliminal auditory and visual influence. Many areas of medicine will engender the same degree of bio-ethics controversy as has the now fledgling genetic research, due to the sheer power of some of the technologies, as well as their multi-level impact on the patient, much of it increasingly based on consideration of patients' subtle energy and belief systems.


( I would like to note here what I feel is the need for extreme caution in relation to the use of electromagnetic radiation for the stimulus of dormant brain cells (intentionally or otherwise). Without accompanying life experience, the awakening of too much of the other 90+% of our brain, would not only affect (literally raw) intellectual potential, but gross electrical potential, either of which could prove disastrous to one's unprepared psycho-emotional self as well as to one's physical body. Those who have played and worked with this kind of "fire" for centuries-the yogis of India, adepts at mind-body awareness and mastery-have written many texts on the proper development of latent human potential, and strongly warn against rushing the process. They teach that nothing comes for free, especially psycho-emotional and spiritual growth. )
 

          With the continuing integration of data between the medical disciplines there will be any professionals in practice as well as in academia that begin to realize, chart, and compare notes on the multi-dimensional correlations (among the mental, emotional, physical, and bio-energetic/ magnetic) as related to various health conditions. Also of help will be the extensive psycho-emotional personality typology data and systems covertly developed by the intelligence services.

         The study of (internal) belief systems as related to overall health will be inevitable in all the above goings on, and it will be developed as a major aspect of focus and application in virtually all areas of health care. Many of the medical approaches (e.g.: psycho-neuro-immunology, to start with) will be moving from a conventional perspective, as regards mind-body correlations, to one where attitudes and belief systems become real components for functional consideration. Subtle energy systems, already the focus of much medical, will also become highly considered in health assessment and therapy application by both hi-tech and low-tech medicine. This will lead to the validation of the intuitive function (e.g.: various forms of "psychic reading" and "energy-balancing" that more and more people have relied on) for detection and treatment of bio-magnetic energy congestion, blocks, mal-distribution, and related dis-functions on physical levels-and eventually for/on mental and emotional levels The application of intuition may find an unprecedented role in terms both of breadth and of its popular integration with the more logical approaches. This is elaborated in the next main section on "The Role of Intuition and ... Grail"..

          As a result, various systems of "Integrated Diagnostics" will be developed, and they will eventually become more or less standardized. As with many systems discussed in this section, this methodology will evolve with the inter-permeating effects of the other developments, especially "Holographic Modeling" and the human body-mind's "Grail System" (both discussed below). Integration and teamwork will become the norm when it comes to the future's much more developed, multi-disciplinary "whole systems approach" to the care applied to the patient. The idea of holographic inter-reflectiveness will find a growing interest, and then applications, in medical, as well as environmental, disciplines (see "Holographic Modeling" below). Even nutritional therapies may include any combination of synthesized chemicals, vitamins, essential oils, homeopathics, neuro-transmitter and/or hormone precursors, along with integral nutrient production enhancers and synergy agents (such as herbals and flower essences) to enhance and direct the combinations to the most effective performance, and oriented toward "instructing the body-mind" to return to its highest state of efficiency to which it is capable.

          Just what potential the human is capable of attaining, will actually become a question of critical perspective and even controversy. An issue that will be debated in both physiological and psychological, as well as sectarian circles, will be whether the original nature of man is "perfect or imperfect." In other words, does the body-mind really know what's best for health, and how much can one trust that it does, and when, how, and why? The aspects noted in the above two paragraphs will be a part of this in depth process. Health care will get very interesting very fast when the medical and religious experts of the day get around to some actual consensus on the "why" part, as if it wouldn't before then.
         The debate will engender a broad public awareness of internal belief systems and multi-dimensional cause-and-effect relationships and dynamics, it will stir even more the issues originally brought up by the genetic research. This will be due to a complex interplay of factors, especially the developments of Integrated Diagnostics and related approaches.
          With all these going's on, the sectarian fundamentalists will be hard put to call into question many resultant findings that (may seem to them to) threaten the existential basis for their beliefs. [..Why & How..]
          Holographic Modeling will be a 3-dimensional model integrating holographic projection, virtual reality technology, (what is now) whole systems design, fuzzy logic, morphognetic fields, unified field and chaos theories, and multiple-probabilities planning. In the coming decades there will be the general awareness that when one eco-system is affected, not only are all other eco-systems affected to a certain degree, but also most other systems connecting organic life on many levels. Using computer generated graphics programs that show 3-dimensionally, the relational and changing dynamics between rated probabilities, complex planning can be facilitated simultaneously by a number of disciplines involved in solving the multiple- discipline challenges. This technology will be a key to the greatly accelerated link-up of the many technologies and modalities, resulting in a tremendous surge in the application of creativity.

[ In the past decade or so there has been the dramatic rise in development of software that graphically charts relationships between data and symbols, and in a much more dynamic and pictoral way than the project planning software of the 90's. So far, we can chart objects, text, and symbols in whatever format or scale, but it is still 2D (2-dimensional) "trying" to present in 3D (3-dimensional). We've had holographic technology but it has only presented objects or text without graphically defining in 3D the manipulable functional relationships between the data and symbols, defined concepts, the objects that is related to, AND any real-time changes made to any one or more of those. -cp, 7'12 ]

          This acceleration should be "at warp drive" relative to the acceleration in information processing brought about by the Information Age. The major difference will be the depth and breadth of effect in most every aspect of our thinking and feeling. The use of such systems for learning via communication of multiple level information produces potentially a virtual 4th dimensional reality.

          Our comprehension and understanding might be described as "multi-peripheral-intra-reflective referencing." Holographic modeling will facilitate the development of planetary evolution models for effective plan-management approaches-scenario probabilities for earth's sustained evolution.

          The models will be synergistically extrapolated (from potentially infinite numbers and combinations of variable factors influencing the earth's eco-sphere, societal development, and astronomical dynamics) via processes similar to the above.

          From these probability scenarios will be gleaned how various possible changes would affect the earth's continued capacity to support life in what will be determined to be in alignment with its highest well-being. Such educated foresight will make feasible (what now would be beyond even consideration) such formidably complex projects as the managed restoration of formerly extinct plant species - and possibly even of animal species.
          This is assuming that the genetics research will make this bio-technically feasible, that the related ethics "insearch" has provided clarity as to man's readiness to consider such uses of power, and that we have well underway the correction of such basic global imbalances as those related to pollution and waste management, atmospheric (i.e.: ozone) stability, population equilibrium, environmental (land, plant, and animal) husbandry, etc. In the holographic age it may not be a strange thing for the average adult to have a very deep respect and functional appreciation for, if not an innate love- affair with, the natural elements of his environment, not unlike what we respect so much in innocent children. [By "restoration of species" I did not/do not mean the replacement any species *with anything less than the original genetic structure* - or at least an accurate reconstruction of same. That is, unless it is a) determined with great study and broad consideration, that some variation from the original is preferable, and b) there is a plan for restoring as much balance as possible as soon as there is an indication of the need for that, and c) the parameters of such "balance" and "need" is well defined before any such replacement takes place. --cp, 3'07]

THE ROLE OF INTUITION COMING HOME,

[[   INTRODUCTORY NOTES - ADDED 2016-2017

         This eclectic symbolic "Holy Grail" -- put in context with the rest of the ChaliceBridge site -- refers to the "Inner Chalice" of all beings, and it refers to a path towards attaining our highest potentials, and that can be for persons of any spiritual path or religion. The metaphor of the chalice, a) relates to actual energy dynamics within living beings (according to certain healing arts perspectives, ancient yet still widely practiced in the East, as well as by many Five Element and Ayurveda-based acupuncturists and other practitioners in the US), and b) is just one of many paths, means, or vehicles that one may use for that (path of attainment of highest potential) - for a time or a whole lifetime. Likewise, the terms "Grail-enhanced mind" or "Grail-Mind" refers to the higher/ highest potentials of ones brain, mind, or consciousness.          The "Role of Intuition..." section has been mirrored to it's own page with special additions. To the degree they are not included here, they are referenced (and linked) here or below.
         Most notably, the mirror page includes the Summary Outline of the "Scientific Research On the Limbic System - Co-Enveloping the Ventricles". This is because the Limbic system is essentially *one with* the 3rd ventricle as it is with the top of the 4th, while intimately enveloped by the (two) lateral ventricles -- that are also just under the cingulate, the limbic component that has more recently (2003+) been shown as one of, if not the, most essential brain components for the mind-body integrative function (eg: including emotional, empathic, or interpersonal, which it integrates - via the limbic system).
         Note that the ventricles were highlighted here (in 1995) as would be found central to the role of the "Grail-System," "Grail-enhanced minds," or "Grail Mind." (So, relative to the recent limbic system findings, we may be getting "close" - AND there are implications to that. Some of which relate to following.
         Both this and the mirror page include A Summary 'On Point' added Dec'13 - which includes a (sidebar thumblink) reference to the "Fascia Memory System". Which ALSO relates to the limbic system, and thereby, to the ventricles, albeit from the proprioceptive or sensory somatic system, that is, from the body's connective tissues, mainly the fascia of the musculature, but including the internal organs. EG: one source of intuition, yes? And THAT write-up is very grounded in neurosensory-based research.
       The mirror page also includes a Related Pages section.

          Will the physician and the medicine woman marry, and bring together the mind and heart of society ? Or has society been holding some unconscious association between the imagination of youth (maybe becoming a piercing intuition) and the rebellion to established authority ? Will there be found an art to science, logic to intuition, or teamwork to societal management ? If so, how will it happen ? What would that be like ?
    [Much of this chapter is speculation about how we (or at least many of us) will develop at the cellular level, including anatomically and genetically - and hopefully not, certainly not necessarily, via genetic manipulation. - 12/09]

          In previous ages we may have had great use of the intuition, and more recently we've seen a much expanded growth and use of intellectual logic. Soon we enter the age of the balancing of the brain's hemispheres.

          I call the vehicle for this balancing the "Grail System" because of its relation to the striving for yin-yang or male-female balance that is inherent in the symbolism of the Holy Grail, or Chalice, in spiritual teachings and myths. The Holy Grail was/is the cauldron of the transforming fire, the source and meaning for the multi-level power struggle (re: paternal/maternal, God/Goddess, science/religion, church/state, etc.) initiated in the middle ages, and told through the story of Camelot and the search for the lost grail. In essence then, we have the grand opportunity to recover the Holy Grail, to regain our balance in male-female relationships, both internally and externally.

[ More recently the grail has been interpreted as the womb or female holder of the bloodline of Christ. But (I maintain that) in the perspective of 'balance in the universe' - both Male AND Female energies, via the charge of opposite polarities - form the vortex of the chalice as the vehicle of human-to-divine transformation - cp, 2'07 ]
 

       In the development of the holographic age intuition will have a most grand and unprecedented opportunity. Something revolutionary is going on relative to left/right brain, or WHOLE BRAIN evolution. Right now there is a great deal of polarization between two groups - those who believe that the right brain's intuition does [ corrected; was "doesn't" ] work well in the environment of the left brain's analysis and logic (see below regarding analysis, distortion, mediation, and the "Grail System"), and those who believe that intuition is a dreamer's tool for self delusion relative to scientific medicine. There is a growing number of views in between, but not much sophistication on the matter of whole brain integration until very recently.

         What we'll possibly manifest in the next 20 to 50 years will blow the doors down -- between the left and right hemispheres -- in the very halls of science. This will not happen due to the massive testimonial or empirical evidence, but mainly because of our developing bio-cognitive capabilities for systematizing the use of intuition, and there-by functionally integrating it with more logical systems of diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and the planning there of. In 30 years the Whole Systems Approach of today will be as primitive as Western surgery procedures of the 1800's is now.
         I am referring to the human brain's development of a type of data organizing or systematizing ability that will change how right-brain or non-linear perception is a) viewed, and then b) processed and stored, so to make it more broadly applicable in whole-brain process. There will be a resulting enhancement in mind-body, mind-emotion, and conscious-super- conscious mind "relationships," as well as in communication between the different processing centers in the brain. Creativity will literally take on another dimension.

         Intuition has been described as the capacity to access and integrate logical data, thus indicating that the data is already somewhat pre-formed (and left-brain accessible) information. But that description alone does not sufficiently account for the experience of most people who consciously use their intuition fairly often. With sufficient development of the "Grail System," there will be an increase in the ability to access and juggle right brain perceived data -- consciously, but every so subtly. The right-brain's random-sorting and selection process -- for "where" the perception is directed and what it focuses on -- as well as the aspect of diffused focus, will actually be predictable to a useful degree, given certain criteria that we will be capable of managing in useful situations.

         The criteria includes knowing the person(s) being worked with in terms of their own experience and current intuitive process and current factors affecting their psycho-emotional process -- in short, how and why they do what they do. These criterions will be allowed for in, and further developed by, the Holographic Modeling function of the Integrated Diagnostics (described in previous section). This includes -- to a useful degree -- the aspect of unpredictability, due to, well, to a soul's somewhat unpredictable plan for it's personality level of existence.
'Skull & Chalice' & 'Grail Mind' -Anim4s by Chris Pringer, ChaliceBridge.Com
"'Skull & Chalice' & "Grail Mind" -Chris Pringer 2009
         "The Grail System" serves as the universal energy balancing mechanism and perceptual data sorter for mind-body consciousness. While this system has always existed, it is one whose capacity multiplies with development. This comprises four systems on four levels, including the nervous, endocrine, circulatory (including lymphatic), and respiratory systems, and on the physical, emotional, mental, and bio-magnetic levels. Most emphasized are the upper endocrine glands and the cerebral spinal fluid channels. The ventricles serve (almost literally) a central role, with the system utilizing their fluidity, content, density, and location for containing the heart of the multi-level data-coordination process. More than for other areas of the nervous system, the bio-magnetic resonance upon this location, (due to the structure and function of surrounding tissues, including the shape and movements of the skull itself) contributes toward the sorting, "gelling," and infinite reformation and refinement in the BALANCING of energies.

        [ NOTE: From an anatomical text reference: "The thalamus (central to the limbic system) is a dense nucleus that bulges into the third ventricle from each side. The thalamus serves as a central relay station for sensory impulses ascending from other parts of the nervous system to the cerebral cortex." Also, the (two) lateral ventricles of the brain intimately envelope the Limbic system as the later is at the top of the 4th, extending back and down into the cerebellum and brain stem. The top-most component of the limbic system, the cingulate, has more recently (2003+) been shown as one of, if not the, most essential brain components for the mind-body integrative function (eg: including emotional, empathic, or interpersonal, which it integrates - via the limbic system).
        Graphics at right: "Ventricles Over Chalice Garden & Center Cross" and thumbnail for the illustrated summary outline of report on the Limbic, Ventricle, & "Grail Systems" including "Scientific Research On the Limbic System - Co-Enveloping the Ventricles." [With more on this and related aspects at the section, "Limbic, Ventricle, Grail System" (including the "CSF-Train") at the page dedicated to that and "Recovering the Grail", including scientific research on the limbic system (Aug 2016). ]

         This balancing serves every level of awareness conceivable while one's consciousness is still connected to one's body. Hence, the mediation aspect whose potential provides for a type of objective monitoring and analysis of ongoing intuitive spread-tracking -- but without the mind's usual "need" to categorize or limit data in time, space, or any fixed way ("Suspended Analytion" ?). The latter can easily distort the holographic perception of the intuition. Even so, the development of these functions will also greatly expand the processes that we now refer to as analysis. As far as I know, there is no actual recognition of all of these particular functions or as collectively related to any system.

         Grail-enhanced minds working with Holographic Modeling will have the ability to effectively compute and juggle complex probabilities, including multi-level, multi-factor cause and effect relationships involving the most unpredictable systems - including human beings. The ability to evaluate -- without the attachment to perceiving someone as good or bad, more or less worthy of love -- is critical to the Grail System's continued development to this level of effectiveness. In fact, the reason that many "intuitives" will argue that analysis is destructive to the intuition, is because of the harm that has been experienced due to the misuse of "judgment." I refer to the tendency to poo-poo the imagination of young minds.

         Such imagination would (otherwise) naturally facilitate openness to a relatively unhampered, and therefore potentially pure, insight -- into and through many "problems" that can plague a comparatively fixed adult perception. Why have we been so insecure in our reactions to such productive activity, or have we too often interpreted it as a kind of rebellion to authority? (Note that history has taught us that occult practice can be severely punishable.) And yet, true "whole brain" potential does not forsake the value of science or forego the capacities of the logical mind, but co-opts these for it's optimal performance. And the most effective analysis will utilize the intuition.

[In his book, *No Boundary* Ken Wilber elaborates on what we would now call the "Left/Right brain split" (very related to the "body-mind split" or "mind-body split", but not exactly the same) and the psycho-spiritual significance of history and the evolution of consciousness during those periods. His chart, "Therapies and Levels of "The Spectrum of Consciousness'" has been included along with the section, "'The Lords of Culture' and Listening - A story about Language, Relationship, and the Body-Mind Split" (7/31/10 by yours truly) and related implications at the Chalice Art page (in the section, "A Relationship Between the Dramatic Rise in Popularity of the Holy Grail/ Chalice Media and the Desire for Pragmatic Balancing of Extremes?"). This note added July 2010]
 

         The Rebirth of the intuition is thus seen to happen due to three developments: 1) the breakdown in the above noted polarization regarding intuition; 2) the assessment and analysis of how intuition works, by a very broad range of (computer equipped and/or accessed) talented individuals in research and practice, who are working together in labs, offices, and/or via the internet. The Institute for Noetic Sciences is currently one of the organizations better known for this focus. A growing number of Internet discussion lists and web sites are already in the initial stages of this process. 3) The (much further) development of the "Grail System" in the human body-mind (see below).

         Should this be interpreted to imply that the primary capabilities of human intuition would or could ever be analyzed to the point of it being replicated, synthesized, or even marginally computerized? My first reply: certainly not for many centuries of human maturation. And yet something said my answer was too simple. So I am led to

believe that this issue will be the point of another great debate -- and probably near the end of the next [This, 21st] century, when it may appear to many (as per our enormous capacity for self-delusion) as technologically feasible. Fears will be raised by those who see the intuition as sacred (as related to their spiritual connection); enough so to want to protect it from unwarranted tampering by the psycho-physicists (!) and psycho-geneticists of the day.

         The covert research into psychism and related technologies has failed in many accounts due to the nature of the intention for using the results of the research, and the nature of the kind of decision-making process that is used by/for those who work under those conditions. Much effort has been oriented towards the incorporation of individuals who are more "pure in intention" (and naïve to the purposes of the research) to counter this glitch, but as the new physics has shown, observance of phenomena affects the phenomena observed, thus rendering it suspect if not useless. This is especially applicable in such subtle fields as related to the intuitive function. As a result, this field kind of has its own protection, yet apparently there is plenty of room for hard lessons for hard heads.

         As we get our ethical/spiritual act together, these limitations will be surpassed. (I'm not betting, however, on the computer/bio-mechanical simulation of the intuition anytime, or century, soon.) As noted in earlier sections of this writing [referring to the "Evolution Trends" essay], we are only in the third level or chakra (of seven) [per "Seven Phases of Evolution" section] -- the Information/Manipulation age -- in our evolution, and hopefully the latter part of it. And there will be the temptation to mis-use power (relative to "perfect" at-one-ment of all powers) until the whole of the planet evolves well past the Holographic [4th chakra] level -- all people, even on our very worst days, so to speak.
         That, according to most arcane/esoteric authorities, will not be for a few centuries or more -- further along in the Kali-yuga (26,000 year cycle). Even then, we will have temptation (and thereby much of our learning) for a kind of power abuse, but not as we currently experience it.

         Will Intuition actually "come home" to the earth plane? Do we want it to? Will we ever learn to stop polarizing our perception by comparing the worth of people? Our brains (or their ventricles) follow our hearts, and our hearts are torn between whatever divisions there are between our own minds and (how we conceive) the mind of God. Eventually, much of the current mystery or mystique around the use of our intuition -- and related elitism -- will be traded in, transformed for a more useful regard of our whole brain, whole heart capacities and their purposes -- and for OUR purpose.

          * "... As society becomes more practiced at RECONCILING THE PAST, ...One of the benefits will be the realization ...leading to a heightened overall application of intelligence, , hence, increased creativity, productivity, and growth..." [from "Psycho-Social Transition & Rehabilitation"]

 


      The "Recovery of the Holy Grail", to put it in brief, is largely about, and would initiate through, the balancing of the left & right brain capacities, of mentality and emotionality, of related systems and capabilities including the full appreciation of our masculine and feminine natures, however those are *healthfully* distributed and manifesting within and for an individual (ie: whether sexually straight, gay, or otherwise, but healthfully and happily so in any case). All of which generally enhances EQ (emotional intelligence) which enhances data access related capabilities as well as creativity, and thus IQ - all in a healthy balance. That also implies/requires a certain goodly amount of neuro-endocrine (including neurotransmitter) healing balance to begin with. From a transpersonal psychology point of view, the balance of right & left brain requires integration of the "emotional body", and is the homework for development of ones lower chakras or energy centers, as prerequisite to further development of the higher centers, sufficient to render the "Grail". [ Find Elaboration on EQ at the "Body-Mind Integration Essays" page.

     Find Dr. Daniel J. Siegel's resources as, perhaps the most pragmatic and organized path for consciously working in this direction (that I know of yet) for the average student of health and healing (lay and professional) in the Limbic/Ventricle section below.
      Perhaps the most direct interface for the individual for all the above is the "Work/Rest Ratio" as relates the *full range of tension potential* in the musculature to, (to put it in the most brief terms) the management of emotional memory as related to that tension. That is elaborated at the "What's Different About Tensing Yoga" section at that page, as "Tensing Yoga" is designed to work with the variation in range of tension in the musculature and (depending on intention and approach with muscles retaining effects of injury and/or over-conditioning). Also, Important are the aspects summarily referred to in the "Muscle Q & A" section of the Body-Mind Integration page. And all that is neurobiologically explored, charted, anatomically illustrated (as much as possible), and referenced with extensive research at/via the "Fascia Memory Theory" and "Fascia Memory Project" pages, the later also being a highly organized proposal for in-depth research. All pages interconnected in purpose to assist in understanding the body-mind integrative personal growth process therapies through developing a pragmatic body-mind awareness, and the resulting long-term preventive maintenance capabilities.
[ Just to remind, for best context, keep reading here, go there later and/or open in another tab(s), as more references to those pages just below and in the sidebar.]

      How much of which of those phases would be achieved through A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) or genetic manipulation, NanoTech, etc? Not much, I think. Not that we won't (continue to) try to use that for bolstering of intelligence (as well as for increased data access). But these types of approaches have been much more about a short-term, adrenal, immediate gratification-orientated system, based in hi-structure (thence fear) motivation, paid for by those who believe that is what works (albeit so they can collect more toys and/or power).

      The A.I. /Nano Tech approach will appeal to those concerned about a lack of full physical capacity, perhaps holding Stephen Hawking as a role model. Not that I think Mr. Hawking would encourage all this, and not just because he hasn't gotten his physical mobility back. My point is, dreams have always been played upon for short term appeal. To Note: Sister Clarice of Caprica using A.I., then encouraging evolution of A.I. beings for war against humans, in the tv series "Caprica." Wherein the "Cylon" robots become androids, and it's really all about the non-vs-sectarian politics mixed in with and battles in lead up to the "Galactica" and "Star Wars" series. (Lots of interesting allagories *to learn from* there, IMO - far more psychologically layered and complex (both the A.I. ethics element and the story in general) - with the dark and light sides not so easily distinguishable - both in (muliple) plot formation and character development than "Star Wars" - yet with lots of action.)

      At the very least, such internal technology, including genetic modifications (like any *power*) will likely become highly addictive to many users (psychologically if not also technologically). If one cannot have a few beers or a good toc and leave it at that for days or weeks without missing it, then one will not do any better with their "A.I. kit." For one thing, the natural systems -that such a kit would replace or bolster- will degrade if not used. On the other hand, if A.I., genetic modulation, or a safer approach, is used to "kick start" or maintain a system that is confirmed as dormant or broken (respectively)... but that is (or can be) what --appropriately implemented- yoga is about, *naturally*. [A note on the prospects of certain drug "treatments" -and hints for consideration- has been added under "Guns & Drugs" at the "PolyPsy" page (Jan'13), as well as about "Drugs & Myths" at the Citizen Momentum page (Dec'13).]

      The "True Yoga" path enhances or initiates and renders capacities to the degree we have called them "Divine." And yet, no true yogi would deny that all that requires dedication and discipline, not to mention doing one's personal homework - working with that pesky emotional body - while on this plane of time, space, experience. As for why there has been such a fear of this approach (since humanity is not afraid of hard work - although it fears being called weak, being stigmatized) please consider how and when "the Church" banned such things 1500+ years ago (the Dark Ages weren't called that just due to the plague) - you may find interesting the section on "Pragmatic Balance ...History" at the "Chalice Integration Arts and Sciences" page. And, by the way, the yoga that has come to be popularly taught in the last few years (since 2010 or so) is not what the first sentence refers to, as it generally addresses *only* the physical health aspect (depending on any given instructor/ student relationship, of course), but may be a wonderful first step for many students. [Ref: "Related Links and Notes from more *traditional yoga* teachers" section at "Tensing Yoga" page]

      As for *Other* means of neuro-endocrine / psycho-emotional healing and development of E.Q., there are many helpful directions being researched. Some of which may be applied to the Fascia Memory Project (although I'm not aware of any research purposely related to that).

      EG: While we can benefit from the A.I. research within certain wisely incorporated boundaries, please note: the "A" means "artificial." Which means temporary due not only to such reasons that ANYTHING electronically accessible can be hacked by those with more knowledge about the artificial element, and if hackers can, then per their nature, some will. And "genetic" should mean absolute care beyond any measure of responsibility that we've ever been proven trustworthy of - until proven otherwise. Life is about learning, IMO, and so we will. And about the long term, step by step approach. That's what I like about the "12-Step" process - per whatever addiction may apply - substance or activity. (And, IMO, learning is the only purpose of Karma, and why we will always come back to whatever has not been completed, however many lifetimes it takes, with "little heavens and hells" in between and along *the Way* - of integrating our Divinity, becoming Love itself, etc.)

      As noted at the Chalice Integration Arts & Sciences page, the logo title "Chalice Productions" refers to the chalice *within* and what we do with it, what we manifest into and as "reality." The prose "Synthesis" and "Chalice Bridging" (above) refer to this process in a very eclectic way.

GETTING THERE FROM HERE
(AND THE POLITICAL MAZE IN BETWEEN)

          As many who keep an ear to the trends of time will know, the next ten years is the one spoken of in so many of the great prophecies. There are more than myths attesting to the accelerating geologic shifts, climatic changes, pest population and adaptation, scale of destructiveness of insane criminals and terrorists, and large scale political and financial manipulation. We will have the unique opportunity to learn first-hand from the most hi-tech, research data- backed, psychological weaponry developed since Hitler's genius (and far- exceeding his effectiveness), now being implemented on the buying public (buying everything from milk to information to political imagination).
Speaking of polarization... [2009±]
TemplarKnightOnHorse[sourceUnknown]-Fix4Sz-cp-222px.jpg Is that Lancelot? Or YOU with your shining armor, lance, and cloak of truth?" ?
What's WRONG with this picture?
(And, yes, what's also right with it?)

What about how we (most folks) relate to the archetype of Knighthood? And how many people (not just guys) relate that archetype (consciously or unconsciously) to our own self-image as related to military service? (And what about that armor, shining or not? Rolfers and Integrative Bodywork practitioners might have an answer for you, by the way smile with far, far-reaching psychological implications, however.) Granted, I could think of far far worse archetypes for someone bent on going to war - ie: those unassociated with such attributes as chivalry. And what does the "Holy Grail" represent? (more about "Pragmatic Balance" than extremism perhaps?). There is a also a story about how a former Marine (guess who Wink ) who came to a have different perspective on this. BIG HINT about that archetype being associated to military service: What if I said Spiritual battles were meant to be fought within? And that the grail legend was / is about recovering balance (and recovering from EXTREMISM) as as essential part of that? (at least eventually through our evolution as humans). [Hence the chalice art at this site, whether for "spiritual" purposes or not.]

          How soon the noted health care related events take place may depend somewhat on the 1995-2005 psycho-socio-political throes. These should be intense considering the increase in [non/]secular polarization and its relation to major political strategies in many parts of the world, including the U.S. "Revolution" being touted by major players in the U.S., and militias enjoying a heyday in popularity. All this bodes not too well for lovers of a secure democracy, unless they like it secured by martial law. Funding for medical care and other social assistance may be cut short by the attempts at re-prioritization going on at the time of this writing. This alone would not do the deed, considering the expanding momentum of brilliant minds' and teamwork across the disciplines of medicine. We have HIV and auto-immune diseases on the run, and a proper respect is being generated for the impending and grave threats to our immune systems.

          But with politics now in danger of maintaining its plunge into "blackmail politics for keeps" on the national level-many other health care funding factors may be threatened decidedly. Consider the sudden rash of re-election pull-outs, party-switching, and exposé's. All have been in one political party or associated with the directions it represents, and occurred right after this party's main players participated in some of the most courageous exposé's of CIA officials. Much covert activity will likely continue in any case, assuming that the "power-elite" will pay for it, as allowed, to stay in power. We are being shown just how far in the dark the average citizen has been kept in regard to our (government's) association with extra-terrestrial life-forms, with inter-planetary travel, with (amazingly advanced) experimentation in Psyonics and telepathy and related weaponry, out of body travel, etc.

          All these technologies can and will be put to positive use -- much of it for healing -- after we survive the coming test-packed decade. Even in the outposts of covert technological research, there have been minds wanting to benefit society with related discoveries. And even these covert groups are polarizing into opposing camps, some of which will help in the re-balancing of power and the healing of society.

          1995 to 2005 will be the decade of the media moguls and the survival of democracy. Both media technology and corporate espionage have benefited from all the expertise that has been let loose from many intelligence agencies around the world since the cold-war liberation. The accelerated increase in consolidation of resources into the hands of the few will continue for the time being. Eventually the information age will facilitate the expose of such as the above for just what it is-even among those who are now too pressured by job politics or job-hunting to make ends meet, by religious blind-siding, and by sensationalising "news" to see through the fog.

 
"About All Those Prophecies"
Excerpts from talk by Greg Braden

          "...What they're saying is that there's a good possibility the ancient prophets didn't even understand what they were seeing. Isn't that interesting? They were given vision into future possibilities. And they would see one and then they would see another, and then they would see another, and it's even recorded that when they come back, they didn't understand what they were seeing. And they were given the direction, 'don't worry about what it meant, just write it down and pass it on to future generations. What quantum science now believes, and what the ancients I believe were alluding to, is that time, and the experience of our lives, exist as simultaneous possibilities, many, many, many possibilities, that are all playing out at the same time. And apparently our consciousness is capable of moving between the veils of these possibilities.
          ...A gentleman named Hugh Everett III in 1953 began developing the theories that we call parallel possibilities. Sounded like science fiction at the time, and maybe that's where a lot of our science fiction comes from. And, what Dr. Everett said was, that the many, many pathways of time and the experience that we are unfolding in each moment of our lives, that every once in awhile the paths come very close together. And, the distance between the worlds is very small and it's very easy to move from one outcome to another. And those moments are called Choice Points. Choice Points: From the perspective of quantum science, and the traditions of the ancient calendars and the traditions of the indigenous people, it's a point where parameters of our world, parameters of the cosmos, change do dramatically, that they allow this easy, this graceful transition from one outcome to another."
          -Gregg Braden from his presentation at 'The Prophets Conference' August'99 in Port Townsend, Washington. and to quote from the introduction to his talk:] Gregg Braden blends his experience as a former computer systems designer, geologist, and aerospace engineer with the ancient sciences of compassion, blessing, and the Essene mysteries of relationship. He offers a way to redefine hate, fear, separation, and the role they play in our lives as we begin a new planetary cycle. As a world explorer of ancient sacred sites, popular and powerful lecturer and author, Gregg teaches of the numinous and the path being taken between the physical and the metaphysical...

          The increase of information and of its access via the modem and modem-successors will be a valuable asset to democracy. This is provided that the "security" minded power players don't convince the people that they can stand guard over the computer codes that private citizens use for their personal data, as well as monopolise the flow of information all while supposedly staying above influencing the content. In this decade of the media moguls, will we manage our entertainment appetite as we host their programs in our homes, or will we meet the their appetite as the media would eat away at our conscience? Did I say, "the survival of democracy?" Well, yes, and it looks like it may take some work.

          Still, I believe we are never given anymore than we can handle, individually or collectively-in the long view of evolution and spiritual growth. No matter how sophisticated a power may be, and how off-centered its priorities, that government is no threat to real power if it's people do not give to it the responsibilities they should maintain (in every sense of the word) for themselves.

          In the last ten years we've had a tremendous increase in interest in personal self-improvement, self-empowerment, and spiritual self-actualization. We've had some good lesson's from such brilliant instructors of self-healing as leader John Bradshaw in the realms of codependency and self-applied common sense. The ability to say "no"-when asked to give our power away in the name of love (but actually for the sake of maintaining addictions and related lifestyles) -- is critical to our time. We've exercised great creativity and compassion in mediation of conflict, and have learned from it even when peace seemed to come only from renewed conflict with nations with adult-children as leaders.

          The old reward/punishment STYLE OF MOTIVATION WILL EVOLVE along with the evolvement of our psychological needs for structure (e.g.: degree of authority required for motivating constructive behavior and personal growth). We will learn to appropriately apply specific amounts of STRUCTURE AS APPROPRIATE TO THE NEEDS for correction and/or rehabilitation of individuals and groups, and to changes in those needs through the completion of rehabilitation and re-integration with society. This will be greatly facilitated by "Whole Systems Diagnosis" and "Holographic Modeling," e.g.: for determining which group of "rehab students" with which to house an individual, for determining how to treat that group for how long, and what determines readiness to graduate to the "next level" of treatment, etc. The assessments for these determinations will be very quick, accurate, and cost-effective. Also applied in the diagnosis and treatment will be the much advancement in addictions research and other fields of medicine as noted in the chart. These systems will be applied both to those convicted of crimes as well as those considered mentally and/or emotionally dysfunctional.


[ A great deal of writing and charting has been devoted to projects related to the societal application of *diagnostics systems* for assessments related to all aspects of health - for preventive health maintenance, including long term personal growth enhancement, as well as immediate health concerns. Including the development of devices that read/assess/diagnose changes in health, including pathologies, via highly sensitive mapping of the various connective tissues - or "fascia," and then facilitate the analytical correlation of the results to specific aspects of "body-memory." End goals in its application not only include a) developing systems for rapid diagnostics & assessment to determine specific degree, type, and level of structure and approach needed, in order to accurately place each student in programs more finely tuned to their needs; b) developing a regular curriculum of public education in preventive health maintenance; but also c) developing the means and the systems for *accurately designating individuals* (those who are now put in prisons) for highly efficient placement into a *structurally gradated system of correctional rehabilitation* - one that actually "graduates" healthy and productive people back into society. The *Fascia Memory Project* - the theory for which was 1st published in 1996 by the author, is based on strong evidence of a relationship between the nature of fascia -- particularly as related to muscle holding patterns and bio-magnetic storage, according to a number of sources of research data -- and to "body-memory." The project will scientifically verify and qualify that relationship as it discovers exactly how, perhaps even why it exists. A summary description is included below. See "Mind-Body Memory Research & the Core of Preventative Medicine ?" in the Related Pages for Reference at this site -cp, 2009,12,15]
 

          In order for societies to attain the prerequisite understanding and clarity necessary to accomplish the above, empathy and compassion needs to be learned through the experiences of the coming decade of challenges. Looming large on the curriculum is the issue of POLARIZATION [3rd, or Solar Plexus, Chakra level per Seven Phases of Evolution section]. "Polarization" refers to the two opposing extremes of over-identification and enmeshment. The first extreme, over-identification, relating to hyper-egoism or narcissism, includes misplaced patriotism and competition for the sake of wrong-making and degradation, nationalism that unduly separates people, bigotry, elitism, and related extremes.
          The 2nd extreme, enmeshment, relating to the blurring of proper boundaries (such as with emotional or energetic enmeshment, sexual abuse, any improper "dual relationship"), includes that which occurs with [non/]secular/political or political/personal conflicts of interest. Appropriate structure (laws, regulations, professional guidelines, cultural mores, rules of conduct, etc) is the result of healthy personal and societal discrimination of values, and related priorities and goals.
          I see the planet entering the holographic age in the next 50 to 75 years. Yet it could happen sooner, considering the degree of ACCELERATION IN EVOLUTION that can occur, once a certain amount of integration capacity is attained. Some "optimists" see a transformation accelerating the whole planet to holographic awareness in the next 20 years or so [and still do, using other terms, such as "The Shift" or "4th Dimension"], in part due to "the exit" of those people (due to the unusual stresses of all the changes) who are attached to the old ways of being. I feel this degree of internal progress may happen so quickly only within a relative few people on the planet.

          And this is due simply to the need for so many to learn at the more basic levels first, including basic self-discipline and/or non-violence. I do not believe that God would simply eradicate a group of people simply because they haven't learned as much about life-as those who someone might call "the top 5 percent" of evolved society-however convenient it might be towards facilitating the birth of a "spiritual" world. If the purpose of being in a body on the planet is to achieve one's highest potential, and if such growth can only be achieved one step at a time, and if God is as compassionate as God's Love and Wisdom would allow for, then I feel that most of mankind will take until at least 2075 -- to even begin to feel secure enough-to empathise deeply with all others on the planet.

"The Forgiveness Set" at the page "Compassion..."

 

          The capacity to resist the CHANGE THAT IS INEVITABLE on the road to growth - say, by denying one's own internal liabilities - slows the growth process. The process is necessary for THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE NEXT STEP, its digestion, its assimilation into the areas of function change, and then its integration into one's perception and action. As we graduate from one perception to another, there is a letting-go process, related to one's sense of humility and one's self-image, that is akin to the process of self-forgiveness. It requires reconciliation concerning one's past perceptions that have often resulted in the creation of painful limitations within/upon self and others. The faulty perceptions regard self's and other's worthiness to be whole, and have been fostered by centuries of societal and parental messages or conditioning.

          Unraveling this wouldn't be so complex if not for the prevalence and degree of shame and resulting denial-of memories, beliefs, and related dynamics. As society becomes more practiced at RECONCILING THE PAST, benefits will multiply. One of the benefits will be the realization by society that an increase in emotional stability and psycho-emotional integration makes accessible great amounts of internal resources-leading to a heightened overall application of intelligence, hence, increased creativity, productivity, and growth.

          Perhaps as soon as 2055, we will begin a period in which almost all functional people take for granted A NATURAL INCLINATION toward life-long pursuit of expanded awareness, virtuosity, and overall well-being. Such process would be on the level(s) appropriate to each individual, no matter the individual's occupation or "station" in life. The people considered less than societally-functional would be strongly but positively encouraged to work on more basic attitude levels until they were self-motivated to contribute to/for/from their highest potential. To accomplish this for all people, most societies will dramatically change their ideas about what facilitates effective behavior correction and rehabilitation.

          Individual rehabilitation comes with "Social Rehabilitation". Hence, it is in this section that I choose to mention the "DISSOLUTION OF POVERTY." Poverty and related death will be broadly realized to be a result of an attitudinally directed style of resource management based on sets of values that discriminate-actively or passively-as to who is more and who is less worthy of having and using sufficient basic needs. As this happens, along with the decrease in the aberrations of polarization, people will naturally share the more than plentiful resources available. WORLD POPULATION will require a tremendous effort at effecting healing of these and related attitudes, considering that there is well known a direct relationship between those with insufficient basic needs and those with the most dense populations.
 

Trends in Religion
[ This section ADDED August 4, 2015 ]

As posted at facebook (by this author, 4/21/15) in review of the article, "The Future of World Religions:
Population Growth Projections, 2010-2050 - Why Muslims Are Rising Fastest and the Unaffiliated Are Shrinking
as a Share of the World’s Population"
by the Pew Research Center, April 2, 2015:

          VERY INTERESTING!!! And, well, I disagree. Certain factors seemed not to be considered. With all due respect to all religions, no disrespect to any, I think the trends for the Muslim faith will follow the same as for the Christian faith - and for the same reasons - too much fundamentalist extremism associated with a religion will turn away the sons & daughters. And while the noted trends for the Muslim faith will continue for a time due to the much greater fertility rate of that faith's members, I believe it will abate after a time, probably beginning about one generation from now. That's in spite of the amount of time that extremist Christian groups lasted and to the degree they did -- I'm betting on the overall increased intelligence with regard to learning from history. And maybe too much hope influences that. Never-the-less...
          I'm also going to counter the noted Trends for Buddhists due to the same kind of reasoning - based on the "extremism factor" that is, and not because Buddhists promote themselves (that is, they don't, let alone make claims to much of anything actually, let alone to being a member of something! ) - but the extremism factor should encourage an increase in realization of the nature of extremism, therefore in the greater appreciation of balance and appreciation of diversity.
          Which dynamic should also increase membership in all eclectic faiths, including Fellowship of Friends (Quakers), Unitarian Universalism, Church of Religious Science, and so on. I was going to say "as well as to atheists," but actually, I think they will, for the first time, lose in that market based in reaction to extremism. Which sounds like the same dynamic- however, it is not - since reaction is not the same as conscious action. In any case, I understand where the Pew Research Center has to come from [logic based on statistics], and will *not* "err" on the side of psychological analysis of [the more reactionary elements of] group think. And I gladly *will.* [Some minor edits, 8/4/15]

 

MISCELLANEOUS "LITTLE" VISIONS

          I have been "seeing" and waiting for a number of years the technology for the relatively quick and large-scale transformation of landfill WASTE SITES into usable, if not highly productive land. In recent years I've felt more and more rewarded by the developments in micro-organism, bio-engineering, and nano-technology research.

          Cars have always felt archaic to me! ("Why isn't this thing moving above the ground?") I've seen integrated TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS that used only the smallest portion of existing streets and highways and parking space, while allowing for a computer assisted hybrid system of intensely compact, magnetically-linked one, two, and multiple-passenger vehicle "trains" (linked for as long as they are going in the same direction) as well as individual vehicles (when going alone in a direction), all magnetically-levitated with their cruising height variable and automatically determined-based on the speed and destination-in the more collective-train systems. These "units" and "trains" would be collectively transported for long distances, across and between states, continents, or planets, wherever the systems were compatible. Imagine all the resulting liberated space going to trees, foliage, gardens, art, and people!

          I see some wonderful PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT uses for the "neuro network" models in computers-incorporating fuzzy logic style dynamics in their "thinking." This computing will utilize interactive processes with program data-banks to do integrative problem solving processes - including auto-customizing personal growth management programs for one's home computer. This level of technology is almost here now and is one prerequisite for the holographic modeling mentioned above.

          Awareness on and of the various levels and inter-relationships among the disciplines will develop due to the increased philanthropic intention as well as to the "market demands" and to the aberrations of the Information Age (abuse of information, media technologies, and related systems by and against powerful businesses in competition, as well as for military and political reasons).

          So much depends on the 1995 - 2005 period of time, in terms of earth changes, authority rule factors in the U.S.-how dictatorial it may become, what happens with the militias and related issues, how the secular/non-secular issues play out). [2007 Note: that period has become NOW. But remember that spaceship that's going to save us ? <grin> Well, the pilots are none other than ourselves, so don't worry, we won't miss a minute of it -- God wouldn't deprive us of the realization that we are so capable! (So much for that Rapture swoop.)]

          This includes how soon the health and environmental related research is allowed (via government funding) to move along into the next potentials, and on into the holographic age.

          I said in the introduction that the implications of this assessment are timely, even though they're not that original: We need to take charge of our creations, become sure of what we REALLY want, and be careful (read "choiceful") in what we pray for. Because with a little faith, we may very well get it. In short, we can choose it or loose it in the next few years. I've called it a decade, but I sense it may take another decade, more or less, to heal from it enough to look back on it with a sigh of relief. But if we can pull through the times with our most honorable values intact, I believe that we will eventually enjoy the greatest healing capacity we've ever experienced. And it will be by systems of care that are more sophisticated and complete, and yet more naturally synergistic, than we ever dreamed of.

         I am curious as to how others (who are interested in Alternative Medicine, Psychology, and Spiritual Evolution, etc.) might look at the probable futures, what they might think of this scenario(s), and what they might add or substitute themselves.

Assessing the How's, Why's, And When's

          In general, the charting and writing of the nature and timing of the events and their connections was developed with a mix of intuition and analysis. As the process happened, I was intuitively guided to recognize and fill in the apparent gaps in the event paths, to compare what developed from the process with certain role model systems and graded criteria to make the assessment of the "level" of evolution we appear to be at now, compared to what human potential might be along the corresponding points on the time lines that developed. I often used logical analysis to make many refinements after the first draft was written. I suppose that my assessing technological correlations and resulting inventions or developments would be easier for me if I had as much study in the history of invention and medical technology, as I have in the history of our psycho-spiritual development. I do have basic aptitude for for technical understanding and troubleshooting, and was even a telephone/teletype technician when in military service, although this work was far from exiting for me. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed doing the section, "Intuition Coming Home and Recovering the Holy Grail," which section resulted from a strong blend of intuition and technical knowledge. But what was the basis for my logical assessments?

Basis of assessment:
          First, I believe there are strong correlations between how a person develops through various phases of maturation -- emotionally and mentally, and thereby spiritually -- and how a society (in this case, of the planet as a whole) develops through phases, some of which occur in a relative timeline. Also, I acknowledge there are broad extremes of maturity at any one time in history. I am referring to the overall collective consciousness, which has grown, it would seem, very, very slowly over the thousands of years on the planet. As for the yardstick of measurement of such maturation, it seemed appropriate to trust a system of perspectives whose considerations extend far in any direction of extremesas it compared broad-ranging types and levels of consciousness - yet searches for a balanced purpose in the whole of whatever continuum it examines.
          For this purpose, given my background of studies, I naturally I drew on the eastern standard of psycho-spiritual evolution. It considers the evolution of any sentient being - from the stage of initial incarnation into a physical form, all the way through (with practically infinite detail if necessary) to the stage at which the being moves beyond the physical. This system of assessment is often related to the condition or state of individual energy centers in the person, and the manner/degree in/to which these centers relate to each other, as well as to the Source(s) of all energy. It is generally accepted that there are seven of these energy centers (or "chakras") in or about the body - by those who formed the original and greater body of work on the subject, as well as by the most established teachers in the eastern religions.
         From this there are correlated seven basic levels or stages of growth in the process of of a being's learning to advance to the highest stages of evolution. Those criterion, when understood properly and in depth, can be seen to be indicative of every trait, quality, and connection - within a being and/or as related to the being's environment, including as regards relationships with God and/or other beings. I elaborate below in the section, "Seven Phases of Evolution"

          I believe it is largely from this basis of knowledge (to the degree that I am familiar with it) that my intuition helps extrapolate apparent probabilities in the social sphere - which from this view seems almost logical. As that applies here, the information age then correlates to the 3rd Chakra or Solar Plexus level of our evolution. And the Holographic Age correlates to the 4th Chakra, or Heart level. [Related "Chart of Energy Centers or Chakras" further below]
          This assessment regards society's potentials for the next 100 years or so - perhaps the first quarter of what I believe to be the chronology of the heart chakra's era. EG: Integration of information and concept is only the beginning. But it will initiate far more important processes much deeper within, yet which interconnect us stronger with ever-expanding realms of consciousness.

          Related personal note: I do not claim perfect knowledge of such systems of assessment, but a highly practiced working knowledge, even though (and possibly because) I do not "see" auras. The 'EvoTrends' essay is not much like any of the articles I read beforehand, but as it flowed out on paper, it just seemed to me to be too "logical" not to be valid. I say that even if I strongly suspect that my ego would love the idea of being "right". Granted, I do have some concerns - certainly some hopes - about how some of the event paths work out. In "Understanding the Pattern Triad and The Mind Body Assessment" [rev'd 12/28/09] I provide an explaination for a system of assessments and mind-body correlations -- learned and integrated from/for my work with others as well as for my own life process. (Ref: "Triangle/Triad Interfaces" Chart further below)

Seven Phases of Evolution
[added 11/29/09, as further explanation of the Assessment above, but may serve well enough on it's own]


          The "Seven Phases of Evolution" are actually phases of growth processes, that Humanity passes through (in groups as well as individuals) in evolution of/in consciousness. It is through this perspective that I assessed, in 1995, that the human population, on the whole, resided or resonated at the middle to upper third phase or level of evolution (third of seven). The Evo-Trends essay, written in 1995, gave rise to my initial development of the "Phases of Evolution" system of assessment, although I didn't call it that until 2009. The Evo-Trends essay itself is much more about the process of developing solutions, related social and technological advancements. (I add this here just in case you came to this section before reading the essay itself. And if you did, you may want to read the summary extract from the essay (at right). Which extract would apparenly lend credence to the assessment aspect of the Evo-Trends essay. And to the perspective that the growth of humanity may be occurring to a greater degree than is evident to most people).

          Or: About how the phases of societal maturation may relate to an individual's maturation, and that to the system of energy centers (per a system taught by advanced yogi's for thousands of years), to attributes and processes related to them, some of which develop or occur in a relative timeline. Please note that these energy centers (or "chakras") are related to the chi energy meridians, which have (also) been denied as existing - at least until recently, with the acceptance of accupuncture by many western medical authorities.

          Are there "Phases of Evolution" or growth that Humanity passes through (in groups as well as individuals) in it's evolution in consciousness, and if so, what might be their implications? I'm speaking of a process requiring thousands of years to complete [and perhaps a better word than "complete" is needed here]. What use can be made of them, for instance, as regards ideals, objectives, plans? [Note: Ideals/Goals-Related section just below.] Is evolution of consciousness occurring to a greater degree than is evident to most people (even to some of those considering the question)? What benefit might be gained by correlating phases of evolution to a system of seven energy centers and corrolary attributes and related processes?
 
[SUMMARY EXTRACTS From original Aug 1995 paper:]
          "...So much depends on how we manage this issue during the 1995 - 2005 period of time... Our trial and initiation prior to entering the next age is dealing with the issue of 'Polarization.' ...refers to the two opposing extremes of over-identification and enmeshment. The first extreme, over-identification, relating to hyper-egoism or narcissism, includes misplaced patriotism and competition for the sake of wrong-making and degradation, nationalism that unduly separates people, bigotry, elitism, and related extremes. The 2nd extreme, enmeshment, relating to the blurring of proper boundaries (such as with emotional or energetic enmeshment, sexual abuse, any improper 'dual relationship'), includes that which occurs with [non/]secular/political or political/personal conflicts of interest. Appropriate structure (laws, regulations, professional guidelines, cultural mores, rules of conduct, etc) is the result of healthy personal and societal discrimination of values, and related priorities and goals ...will develop out of necessity - much due to the aberrations of the info age (psychological manipulation and necessary defense systems practiced by/for/against businesses in competition as well as for military reasons... personal data as common knowledge <-> 'Age of Exposure' ...the decade of the media moguls and the survival of democracy..."

          The individual phases themselves might be described, for the sake of study and application here, as in direct correlation to a set of 7 energy centers that are said to influence each individual (referring to the bio-etheric set of seven "chakras" as taught about by advanced yogi's down through the centuries. "Chart of Energy Centers or Chakras" further below).
          Note that these ideas do not fly in the face of Darwin's theory of evolution, but simply expands upon it. Yet they are also consistent with "The epigenetic approach, dynamic holism and the new organicism" as related to "neo-Darwinian Synthesis" which "requires a conception of the organism as open to the environment - which it actually is - and invites us to examine the dynamics of transformation, as well as mechanisms whereby the transformation could become 'internalized'. Hence it leads logically to the epigenetic approach, which embraces the same holistic, systems thinking..."  4 

          I am hoping to find a way to discuss a truly useful system of assessment that facilitates understanding and compassion for Humanity's process and without leading to even further religious judgment and condemnation. Perhaps to explain WHY we are currently experiencing one of the most discouraging periods in our planetary process, and HOW this might even be (probably is) a necessary though most distasteful step. How can we establish and keep in mind that we are all *responsible* (for our evolution in consciousness) within the context of the interconnectedness of all BEING - or even perhaps in context with *the whole of the timeline of evolution*? Afterall, the human mind is designed to solve the riddles of "Contextual complexity."
         That part of a youth's brain undergoes it's primary development at about seven to eight years old. Which is also the age for which most newspapers in America have set their reading level or literacy standard, by the way. Which relates to the basis of the distribution of information, thus to the "Information Age," does it not.

          As regards the correlation of the seven phases of growth or evolution to the seven energy centers: These phases of growth* are based on the 7 bio-etheric energy centers within each individual's Soul-Being - as part of a system taught by advanced yogi's down through the centuries. The seven energy centers are geared to work together as an integrated whole, but individually have certain strengths and attributes. They can be viewed as tiered in a hierarchical arrangement, progressively advancing from the lower more material survival-based capabilities to those more oriented to the formless and sublime attributes of existence.

          This is not a simple concept but I hope a few paragraphs can provide a suitable description in the context of the noted phases of evolution. I will summarily describe the structure of the system in the paragraph shortly to follow, but first it is important to understand certain sub-concepts:
          An individual's "phases of growth" are NOT phases or levels in the truest sense. Because, even as each phase correlates with a center, each center within an individual develops or evolves at varying rates - depending on an individual's experiences in a given lifetime. And yet one energy center is not really independent of the other six, any more than the sub-systems of the endocrine system. For example, the thyroid gland may be akin to a 5th level manager in the endocrine system, and yet the other 4 lower glands still greatly effect how the thyroid operates. AND Note: the bio-etheric energy centers (or "chakras") are directly correlated with the glands or the endocrine system. Also, in that each of the seven energy centers (or power transformers if you will) serve as a kind of power, it serves us well to remember that, like all powers, each of these centers can be used/developed/influenced for "good" - or much less. As a whole, they correlate directly with our consciousness - of ourselves, of other people, of all that exists, whether detectible to our normal physical senses or not. [Here is where the limbic/ventricle & "CSF-Train" systems of the brain kicks in, per/via the section on "Recovering the Grail" above.] As such, we are "in charge" of them, and yet, they serve as channels or communications relay centers between our conscious and "super-conscious" or soul selves - those parts of us that "sit next to God." Hence we are also here to learn to be responsible for keeping that connection as clear as we can.

          According to various factors that I've analysed, I have assessed that the average individual and average group in Humanity might currently be at about the middle to upper 3rd phase* [the summary extract from "the Evo-Trends" essay (below) should indicate how and why], although there certainly seems to be individuals and very small groups that operate primarily at the 1st level or phase of evolution (the least evolved) which are highly influential with/in governments and the media and other circles of "worldly power." As well as a relative few individuals and groups operating at the higher levels, who are also very influential (and substantially so), although not with/in circles of worldly power. And this relates directly, with our learning process - individually, communally, and as a species. [ I can also see at least two scenarios --having to do with the nature of *visibility* and *representation* -- that would support the theory that, on average, humanity may operate at higher levels (than middle to upper 3rd); described further below. ]

 
SUMMARY DESCRIPTION OF THE ENERGY CENTERS
( used here to correlate to levels or phases of growth )

 
    Useful references include Wheels of Life by Anodea Judith or Human Energy Systems by Jack Schwarz. Meanwhile, the energy centers' corrolary attributes can be summarized crudely and briefly:

 
        1) strength, security, basic support;
          2) passion, reproduction, creativity;
          3) individuation & definition, information, raw empathy as in "gut feeling," power in management/ manipulation of these aspects;
          4) love, service, empathy with others as extension of oneself, psycho-emotional integration;
          5) authority, management, delegation of power, communications, 'power of Spoken Word';
          6) conceptual, contextual, & ethics/ values-based discrimination, insight, recognition of truth, reality, & related veils, psychic awareness;
          7) pure knowledge, consciousness, integrated "connectedness" relating all reality/ies, All Beings, all energy centers as ONE, etc.

 
    Each energy center, is thereby part of our non-physical anatomy, according to teachings of advanced yogi's down through the centuries.

More on the "Phases of Evolution":
WHY CONCERN OURSELVES WITH SUCH A NOTION?
          This perspective (using a system of evolution/growth phases) is provided as a vehicle or means for the study of evolution - so that we might look at where we are now, relative to where we want to go. So that our ideals and purpose for living might be considered in depth, as well as in the long term, "macro-cosmically" if you will. And thereby, we might develop the goals and plans that may effectively assist us in surviving the impending global challenges we face today. I BELIEVE WE CAN GET BEYOND - what seems to be the current or impending "Doom & Gloom" scenario orientation. That "The test" IS the vehicle for doing that - whether one believes that we've created that "vehicle," or that it's been handed to us. I know, that's pretty lofty stuff, but I'm under no illusion that it's never been said before. And besides, I've been blessed to study some of those who I believe have been some of the true leaders of mankind over the centuries. I only hope what I write doesn't or wouldn't disappoint them too greatly.

          There are perspectives, on the one hand and worthy of merit, that contend that humanity is "at the animal level." And some proponents of that view even use quotes from Joseph Campbell and Alfred Einstein to make their point. While I agree that it certainly appears that some very powerful individuals and groups operate primarily at the 1st level or phase of evolution with much influence in governments and the world media, I also believe that many people on the planet are highly influenced --in how they behave within their own community circles-- by a relatively few people/beings who operate at the higher levels. And that even includes great influence by many beings operating at the highest levels, even though they are not currently in a physical body. And at times it may be easy to ignore the proponents of the more subtle realms of power, and even say their lives or ideas don't count. But that is part of the paradox and conundrum of the human condition, and a challenge that has always been with us and I assume always will be.
          So I could round this up now by saying, "nothing new here... back to the drawing board of developing ideals into realistic goals."

          But first I would like to add a few more notes about related considerations .

          As a person experiences life in a given day, in different circumstances, with different moods, with different people, etc, that person may resonate more with any one of the seven energy centers than with any other center, changing perhaps with each experience. Some persons may resonate more with "higher" energy centers through more of the experiences than someone else. And they may "Live there" on a daily basis, ever evolving. But who is to say actually, since how they actually appear to behave might vary depending on many factors - not the least of which may be the objectivity of the one observing and judging the appearance.
          The very fact that such things are difficult to judge... says a) we should be careful not to judge unless bound by law perhaps to do so, and b) consideration of such dynamics should lead to increased humility about and compassion for those people and situations we cannot be objective about. That is, to consider such dynamics may give rise to a kind of perspective on life that is liberating for some people, lending to more understanding of and toleration for others that live or believe differently. And it may lead some people to shed or revise their believe systems that would otherwise lend to hypocrisy in relationship with others. One can only hope, at least.

*Visibility* and *Representation* (Factors Blinding the Assessment ?)

[added 12/7/09]

          This is about those "relative few individuals and groups operating at the higher levels," noted above "who are also very influential (and substantially so), although not with/in circles of worldly power." And thus supporting the theory that, on average, humanity may be operating "at higher levels (than middle to upper 3rd)" due to factors I've referred to as related to the nature of *visibility* and *representation.* How likely it IS -- that these factors mean that humanity actually operates "at higher levels" -- is certainly not easy to measure, may not even be possible to measure. But I think the factors deserve some consideration, so I will mention them here.

[VISIBILITY:]
          How many (how significant?) are the numbers of those whose operating level is invisible because they are "scraping to get by" and lack the energy, let alone time, to focus on activities in ways that the media picks up on, let alone the "intention" to get the media's attention? And this may even be due to someone else's actions in the current lifetime. And in any case, in order for people to be operating at high spiritual levels, IMO, they need not communicate in ways that 'society' recognizes as sophisticated or civilized, or even communicate that they have the ability to read or write!
          In fact, a key point here is regards HOW 'civilization' has measured intelligence: the method used for measuring intelligence has always been a major determinant, and thereby, sadly, also a major distortion. I'm speaking of HOW "civilized," and (supposedly) thence spiritually connected, we ("civilized" folk) have determined 'other' people to be or not be. In actuality, the more *we believe* that we have been able to communicate with and gain understanding from, by, or with a given people or animal species --the higher we have rated their intelligence AND even spiritual connectedness! Whereas the less we have understood someone or some species, the lower we have rated their intelligence and moral capacities (to our subsequent embarrassment in notable cases, where these assessments have actually showed more about our ability or inability to assess or understand others. Our biases, prejudices, and steriotypes also remain an ongoing testiment of that.)
          My point here is, just because much of civilization is blind to the relevance and value of so many others (and their percentage of the populace), and inspite of what the media would have you believe (for their own benefit), there is still no good reason for thinking individuals to disregard the potential of Mankind to be positively effected by those that they can not yet see or understand. (IMO, more anthropologists and sociologists need to get together with more psychologists - but that's just for starters regarding cross-discipline science interactions, as elaborated in the above section, "Interconnecting Key Elements in the Evolvement of Planet Earth")

[REPRESENTATION:]
          If there had been more representatives of John F. Kennedy's level when JFK was in office, IMO, there would have been less filtering of "good people" from the "strong representatives" among candidates for political office. And thereby would have been less influenced by those overly motivated by, or susceptible to, the influence of power for power's sake. And IF that is true, THEN that may indicate greater numbers of people operating at higher levels. Like the media, representatives have only the amount of power we give them.
          I admit, I have complained that the elected representatives *ALSO* represent the LACK of political choice, therefore the APATHY of the citizenry (in the more powerful of the western democracies). But how accurate is that (and what it implies), when considering those people who are operating mentally or attitudinally or intentionally, or consciously or spiritually, at far higher than animal levels, and are still politically forced out of representation? And even though they are also a large enough part of a group that they would otherwise make a difference, were their "representatives" to count them, listen to them, truly represent them, or let them vote? I'm sure we can think of some prime examples of current day religious persecution and misrepresentation - all around the world, including in established democracies. And that too may indicate more people operating unseen at higher levels (more than it indicates anything else), even though not "successfully" representing their best side to those who would count them as such.

          Falling into either camp (representation or visibility) would be those who are currently living at survival level of existence, although operating at higher levels, due to a soul's choice to be born of a certain parentage, creed, nationality, or circumstance, in order to learn from that experience.
          Related Note: As may summarize much of the above, evolution of humanity from this point would require more transition off the drugs -- not just substances, but power and identification with image -- and more transition onto the things that last. Some say that the attraction to substances declines in direct relationship to our decreasing attraction to power and identification with image. And someone else (?) said, "The most valuable things are not things at all."


[Theme continues below]



Thanks to Ferent Adrian
          whose questions and ascertions on my Facebook page's "Wall" (November 2009) led to much of this section's writing. [That discussion has been transferred to my "Notes" section there].
          Ferent quoted Joseph Campbell and Alfred Einstein to make a point about "98%" of humanity's being "at the animal level." That "Animals live on these three levels ...the levels of holding onto life, reproducing life, and winning. ...is what popular religions are concerned with: health, wealth and progeny. Winning the war, god send us rain for our crops, and all that sort of thing."

          My short response was "yes, so many need to focus on learning how to get along- but the trouble usually is that so many can't even get their basic needs met (as in Maslow's "Hierarchy of Needs" and related theory- which is accepted as fairly basic in all schools of psychology), and so to expect all/most of them to feel secure enough to focus on the reading of ethics and spirituality, let alone metaphysics... So to judge "98%" so quickly as you seemed to... well, here's where we consider what "realistic goals" can be set. And, yes, the leaders of the most powerful nations "should" be role-models for the others -- instead of using and abusing the other nations..."

          I elaborated:
          "And I have great respect for Joseph Campbell and his views. But yes, when you invoke that "98%" - well, you seem head off in a few directions that I might not go so far into. Not only does such a high stat sound extreme, thence sounding like the other 2% is in some sort of elite class, off and apart and perhaps select, but there is the much more complex matter of determining the criteria, not just for who are at what level, but also for determing how and why someone fits into a given level. I say complex, because something important to consider, IMO, is that you might have a 5th chakra operating level individual who has been victimized and left with no basic resources, no support system to speak of, and maybe not even a good name, and that person has to scrape/suffer just to survive (which scraping may likely be comprised of different kinds of activities in different cultures).
          Hence the question arises in my mind: How can we know how many people at survival level of existence got there by reaping the seeds they have sown, or by someone else's actions, or by choice to be born of a certain parentage in order to learn from it, which circumstance will, by the law of Karma, be balanced via one or more future lifetimes, but not necessarily the current one [more on that in "On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace" section further below]. And yet, it is the current one --for all the world's peoples-- that you seem to be assigning this measure to. At any rate, people will receive a book or other kind of instruction only to the degree they are able and motivated to.

          And if they are scraping, whether they are at 6th chakra operating level or at 2nd, they will likely not have the energy, let alone time, maybe not even the ability, to read or learn. Chances are the higher operating level folks don't need the lesson, they mainly need our compassion (and those basic resources). But then so do all the others - because that is how we all take the next step in learning, a step that is retained, that is - by giving and/or receiving gifts of love, compassion, and knowledge. And if that were always easy (IMO), for one, we wouldn't be having this discussion.
          In short, [addressing Ferent Adrian] I think you may have misunderstood Campbell's reference, or most apparently the application of it, particularly when you equate all those falling in (Campbells categorization of) 'animal level' as rotten idiots. Some days I may *feel* little respect for those who seem to care so little about, say, the genocide of the Iraqi's, and which non-caring set seem to be the greater majority of American people. But I do my best at NOT giving my *emotional body* the absolute power of categorization in my belief system, although that body may sit with my full respect at my 'conference table' so to speak." [Related resource noted a few paragraphs below.]

And so the sections following "Assessing the How's, Why's, And When's" came into being, as well as these additions:  


Animal Farm

[added 12/7/09]

          Or is that what Ferent, as well as promoters of communism are trying to say - that we are in fact an animal farm and should consider ourselves as currently living that way, but that we should therefore go a a more successful route than that which was taken by the characters in the book, Animal Farm ?   Which book has been used in high school history courses as a metaphorical message to say that communism was not the way to go. (?)
          Whereas, IF one could say that IF we are indeed virtally all animals, and that THEN we may as well [give in to "the hopelessness of our state" and] act like it, THEN you still polarize the representatives of that viewpoint into two or more camps - economically and socio-politically - as regards how the resources are distributed, how the recipients are selected, and how to either increase the resources or decrease the consumption - or, depending on how animalistic the decision making becomes, how to reduce the number of recipient consumers. Which, of course, are not new considerations, including even the last factor, in discussing how socio-economic, geo-political-military decisions have been made, are made now. Even recently, [those considerations enter very critically into decision making] at high levels of leadership, with all the Judeo-Christian identified leadership in the most powerful nations on the planet. Maybe even especially so.
          But one of the points I try to make here is that, even given some kind of wide-spread acceptance or admission of "high-animalist content" in the psychological makeup of earth's population, the polarization would still go on between those more capitalist-oriented and those more socialist-oriented, and those more communist-oriented.

          And I'm not saying there are no power elitists who depend on dis-empowering and disillusioning citizens and their representatives or potential representatives, or that their are no circumstances that have given rise to what someone may refer to as "conspiracy theory." Let's just say I've examined many of them, probably with a great deal more ... patience than others care to invest, developing a process I call "Theory Stacking" (elaborated on at the PolyPsyArts Home Page). And I have become convinced that most such "conspiracy theories" have been created and promulgated with intentions as I described in my previous note (for the purpose of disillusioning and dis-empowering those who might otherwise contribute as citizens to the governing processes of their community or nation). I also believe that the CIA, Mossad, KGB and other like groups employ people whose job it is to create and disseminate such stories - for their own purposes, of course. That some people pick up on them and pass them along because it suits their own proclivities. So I say "Beware whose purposes and processes you might actually serve."
          I have to admit, I questioned Ferent's motivation behind his communicating that we're all "just animals" - but mainly his attempting to do that on a broad scale - publishing books to supposedly "prove" his mathematical theorem to that end. EG: How likely are we to motivate people to raise their consciousness by beating them with the condemnation that they are incapable of elevating their spiritual capacities, let alone helping improve how we manage the planet. Here's where I mention some another essays: "Emotion and Motivation on the Path and in Healing", "Approaches & Methodologies for Body-Mind Integration", and "Considerations and Strategies in the Management of the Emotional Body" at the "Body-Mind Integration" essays page.

On Potential Realities, Ideals, Goals,
and Accomplishment
[added 11/28/09]


          Potential Realities are realities that we can create if we work in the faith that we can bring them about. They are brought into actual reality only because enough power is put towards bringing them about, because enough faith is invested into practical action towards creating that reality.
          Ideals: Very few get to live up to our highest ideals, but without ideals, what would we live up to? They help us formulate a useful visions by which we can develop purposeful goals. Whereas many goals are based on basic needs and/or desires. Values can play an important part in this formulation, and of course be highly related to our ideals. Many of the ideals stated or implied on this page (and some other pages at my site) are supremely challenging to say the least, and understandably so.

          IF we want to accomplish a goal that isn't seen CLEARLY, let alone immediately, "right ahead" of us, and IF it is born out of our highest ideals and related "visions/aspirations, and VERY especially IF one knows that the goal is absolutely necessary (for one's survival, for human evolution), ...
          THEN one way to go about it is a) look at (a visualization of) what we really want, and b) consider some basic routes for how we might get there from here, c) imagine yourself "looking back" from the time/place you would be after accomplishing the desired goal at the key and core physicalities that needed to be created in the latter time periods prior to achieving the goal, then d) the same for the physicalities preceding those... all the way back to the present. And then, e) do the same for the attitudes that would be necessary to accomplish those - for each goal as necessary. From here f) a basic flow chart of required tasks and conditions are established. g) Quality Control Consideration: If you employed the preceding steps and found the process very easy to accomplish, or that it did not require much depth of thought, chances are good that the ideals were not set high enough.

          "Heart's Desire, Ideals, & Accomplishment" (Aug'11, on same page) is About clarifying what we most truly want, and how we can have that... also about HOW we respond to Pain & Loss (whether caused by disease, ourselves, others, or the economy) and are brought back together again - the *how* that can MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. Whether to grieve and heal and grow in our problem-solving and preventative maintenance capacities, or to blame and respond in attack as with Iraq after 911, leading to war, related foreign policy dynamics, economic calamity.

                    I believe ideals can be useful as guides, considered in context with any given current reality, and as such, perhaps they are most useful of any type of perspective. As we focus on the ideal we draw near and close the gap between that reflected universe we know mirrors our highest potentials, and the universe that we have tended to "see" around us. For many readers as well as this author, many of the ideals stated or implied on various pages at this site are very challenging to say the least, and understandably so. I present them because I believe they might help us formulate a useful vision by which we can effectively develop realistic goals. "More On 'Ideals'" & "...the Concept of Perfection" is at the page, "Compassion, Healing, and The Practitioner -- and Detouring 'Burn-out'." Also at that page is "The Forgiveness Set".

On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace
(and Purpose, Structure, and Religion)
[ added Dec'09, rev'd Dec'11, Jan & July'12 ]


          I believe we are undergoing the testing (read "the opportunity") for entering the 4th or Heart level. In my current opinion, based on how we've handled 8 of the last 10 or 12 critical years... well, we might not make it there anytime soon, let alone before we let the planet have Her Goddess Self to HerSelf (inspite of Her giving Her best to help us learn to be all we could be). And I believe it is all about Learning.**

          So it seems 'Perspective' is a large part of THE LEARNING PROCESS. There are those who act as if they feel (sometimes inspite of what they profess to believe), that those who experience severe hardship actually deserved it (such as the people of a nation who have been conquered, mass-murdered or economically exploited by another nation or even their own). Some people are apparently so strongly identified with their "good guy" or "spiritual" image that they overlook the signs (within, and/or 'signs of the times') that might otherwise led them to intervene in such things. And when tempted to wake up to the reality, they feel so much shame that they then deny what is happening - perhaps needing to learn more about how to forgive, less about forgeting...

          The learning process is most apparently THE REASON FOR LIVING - not to mention central to the definition and function of the 'Law of Karma.' Which is actually all about that process, which, according to many, is why we have a physical body, taking up time and space, having experience, relationship with anyone or anything - and just not about punishment, since we also learn via many other kinds of experiences.

          Hopefully, we may update the average westerner's understanding of karma - from that of simply the "carrot and stick" of the easterner's universe. And may we do so in the light of it's higher purpose: *to facilitate an understanding of God/Higher Power, via understanding the Divine Parent/Child relationship, via the learning of the highest forms of Love & Compassion, all in accordance with the Highest Loving Will of the Highest Loving Power - over as many lifetimes as it takes.*  2  We may contrast this with the more immediate gratification-granting concepts of "heaven" & "hell". Really, for those who believe it takes millions of lifetimes "to get it right," that heaven-hell concept is a hop, skip, and jump for immediate gratification in comparison.
          That understood, we might broaden our understanding of Mankind's purpose, individually and collectively. In the larger context of karma, God's instruction to Humanity as children would then be to learn to find balance. And to reconsider how we view pragmatic ideals for relating with others and for related goal-setting in the meantime.

          Some definitions or interpretations of Karma can lead to misunderstandings with regard to physical and emotional pain (making the Law of Karma appear cruel). Related clarification can be found in the sections, "Stress & Energy Related Pains", "Notes On Pain - From Gestalt Perspective", and "A Metaphysician's Perspective On Pain, Emotion, & Change" in the essay, "Why Pain? - Notes on Pain, Awareness & Denial, Aspects in Developing a Practical Approach with Compassion". Related: "Considerations and Strategies in the Management of the Emotional Body" at the "Body-Mind Integration" essays page.
          This is not to say karma cannot manifest, or at least appear, as "God's Revenge" or at least recompense for damages, but to put that in a larger context. As such, the concepts of *fairness*, revenge or retribution, debt, (etc), take on a meaning that is apparently foreign to most people on the planet. And yet I certainly like to think that, it can't be wrong to expect such things as basic respect from others. Indeed, I believe it is humanity's Karma to learn how to give it to everyone.

"Four Understandings" - or "Questions for Working Together" (our karma) - Chris Pringer, 2014
Peace Flag Color Guard -Chris & Colors SpreadPhoto of the Peace Flag Color Guard, Mar'10           How long will that take? Perhaps it's an individual learning function, and not necessarily "Group Karma". Which I suppose could relate to the principles of living by example, not to mention compassion. If you fall, or were placed, into a category which is used for scapegoating in your own local or culture (eg: if you are being steriotyped and discriminated against), then... Well, this won't always provide consolation to say the least, but for what it's worth, a metaphysician would say: either you are making up for a past life when you did or allowed the same to others, or you are learning to teach and/or preparing for "future work" (in this or another lifetime). So, it seems that "Balance in the Long-Term" is the only consolation we can get sometimes. And if I said it may take us at least one or two hundred years before we actually ALL come to expect AND usually feel respect from everyone (besides which statement brings up discussion about how any of that is actually defined), how would that sit with you? Surprise But for now...
          I believe *Peace* does come with a sword - the sword of truth - but which is applied in one's own mind to discern applicable reality from that which is not. *Fairness* is just one of the more basic attributes that determine how people get along - in peace, capable of recognizing "greatness." What has been called "fair" has essentially been determined by how the related *STRUCTURE* is defined and applied via religious doctrines, cultural mores and laws, etc. More on *Structure* below. 3  As for true fairness, now we're back to Karma.
 

A "Purposeful Existence" Theory
          (one that I'd believe holds validity for "Reality")
                    would include these considerations:


          IF Humanity is essentially purposeful as may be represented in our genetic code (with the oh-so implicative pi-ratio dynamic 1   included),
         THEN would it not make sense that:
               *FREE WILL* (and related *Choice(s),* and goals, and the purposes and values geared around or supporting them) is an essential part of it all?
              And if so, would that not necessarily imply *LEARNING,* including learning such as the above to be true, as part of *every* soul's realm of possibilities?
              And would that not imply *FAIRNESS* or equality of opportunity as part of the said purposefulness.
              And would that not imply sufficient *TIME AND SPACE* available so that eventually all souls would arrive at the point of realization of the above implied highest purposes for existence?
              And perhaps, if I take only a slight leap here, even evolve out of ("transcend") the construct of time and space?
              But if those implications are true, then "sufficient time and space" would imply the existence or process of multiple lifetimes (Reincarnation), so that *evolution* of Humanity provides for the realization of purposeful existence (as outlined in principle above). 2 

          And yet, it would seem that all the religions of the world are based in the belief in a purposeful existence, and yet again, so many of them do not seem to give much credit to or hope for the actual evolvement by trial and error to any real state of capability in problem solving. They seem to say that any real problem solving is left up to the Divine and is basically useless for humanity to attempt any real solution finding. Which contradicts the notion of purposeful existence outside of being rewarded for being subservient. And as far as multiple lifetimes (reincarnation) and learning (karma) goes, the amount of material there is supporting the Buddhist perspectives, let alone belief system, is not only massive, but complex, yet interwoven. AND it makes enough sense that it almost requires no faith - because, IMO, it is, on the whole, simply that logical. (While Buddhists can be the most intellectual folks around, their core meditations teach well how to engender deep and profound compassion for others - including total strangers, outcasts, and enemies.) 2 

On the other hand...

          I should add that the old testament thing about vengeance is part of the story, the history, that we were/are supposed to LEARN from. CONTEXT is everything, they say. And then there's the Aramaic language that got re-translated a couple of times (Aramaic -> Greek -> Latin), which Rocco A. Errico (biblical translator) 2a   establishes caused LOTS of misinterpretation. Throw in the ulterior motives of Constantine and a few popes since then who were doing the translating, add the influence of a few (understandably?) ticked off protestant reformists since then, and... well, we get this thing about vengeance being God's. Yeah, just blame it on someone (THE ONE) who can't speak directly for Him/Herself - so to speak. How convenient for starting a "holy war" to get what you want from your neighbors. But again, That's the stuff of Mankind's learning AND we get to (if we really WANT to) learn from that. 2 

          So, could we say that Mankind has not yet evolved past the need for some STRUCTURE 3   such as fundamentalist creeds or religions to believe in ("do not think, let alone question; just believe")? AND yet, such structures HAVE provided a vehicle for much of Mankind to learn together in. YES, such learning involves doing very basic security-based things (Including learning how to solve problems as non-violently as possible). Mankind would do this learning (and all the same mistakes) somehow anyway during this stage of learning, right? 3 

          The trick, IMO, is learning how to encourage the development of solutions towards getting us (Humanity) through the current challenge (impasse?) in Mankind's evolution. I was thinking that, well, if enough people became aware of "the current test" AS a *TEST*, then WE might back off enough to reconnoiter and reconsider the situation in a more productive LIGHT."

About Reincarnation and the Law of Karma

          Just in case it has not been made clear yet, reincarnation is not an "out" for responsibility, because after leaving one life, the soul returns to the same or "place" (equivalent learning circumstance) he/she left off.


[ I'm saying this, given the fact of history about how the bible was put together by Constantine and crew 2 , who edited out of most anything to do with reincarnation, a key operant of *karma* (that is, most any references to anything implying the existence of, let alone reality of reincarnation, among many many other things, covering volumes of concepts and considerations). ]
 

          Karma is about learning, not about punishment or reward, although those are the most common means of referring to the more extreme of the required experiences. And the means of "leaving" a life effects the "curriculum" of future lifetimes, very likely the "next" lifetime. I add quotes because there is the question of parallel lifetimes and nature of (or the dimension of) "time" - whether it is necessarily linear or not.


[ ** The non-linear aspect of *Time*, as considered by quantum physics or fuzzy mathematics, is not disputed by *the core* of any religion (and the mystics thereof), even though it may be considered heretical to the fundamentalists of most any religion.
** More quoting follows because the use and meaning of all of those terms get very fuzy in the broad, cosmological views. ]

 

          The point being, a) reincarnation does not "put off" anything to any extent of "time" when considering the number of lifetimes a soul reincarnates, and the amount of "time" it takes for humans/humanity to evolve; b) there's no "getting out of it", therefore "no free lunch"; c) hence we (each of us) are "permanent". At least until d) "the last lifetime" on the material plane, and there is e) time spent in other capacities in between such lifetimes, until one f) "ascends" to the next plane (and the next, for a number of these...). We can call it "heaven" at some point if you like, since, relatively speaking, it is (but so is a good meditation - for a brief visit anyway). All that is in consideration of "possible" exceptions, depending on which mystical/spiritual reincarnation-inclusory belief system one goes by, in cosmologically defining the life of an "individual" soul.


[ IE: Buddhism includes that after the final life in physical form, a soul is, in a very rough sense, "dispersed" or "distributed" thoughout all of "the universe" along with it's "advanced" or "expanded" consciousness. -- And availability of virgins? Well, when you're *one with everything* (like the hotdog), *every* getting together (at each *point* in the universe) is *virgin* laughing ]
 

          I would venture to say (even bet on it), that the complexity of the perspectives on these matters, even when considering just the Buddhist teachings alone, is beyond the imagination of most any western student of religion. Particularly when considering the full nature of the soul, and the process, not to mention what some might call "the mechanics", by which the personality advances in consciousness and awareness (encyclopedic in expanse, organization, and detail). These views (out of which the key elements of such arts & sciences as acupuncture and yoga were developed) have been around far longer than some Christians claim that humans have existed ("10,000 years"), not to mention were written down, for the most part, three to five thousand years ago (at least).

          And then, back to the core topic, there's all the indisputable evidence of reincarnation gathered, documented, etc by various metaphysical organizations. In any case, it is understood by mystics of any belief system, that religion, particularly the fundamentalist views of any religion, provide a sometimes necessary structure for children, as well as those adults that require a strict and simple environment for their individual progress, particularly in dealing with others. And considering this, there would be all shades of structure in between, if were to provide optimal learning environments for each individual  3 . Which *is* what we have, except that the mechanisms by which one may come to be, or be forcibly placed, under the control, side-effects, or direct interference, of such structures might be considered very ineffective for any constructive cause, not to mention destructively crude or cruel, in many cases.

          But man's nature is (too often?) to keep things simple in the management of other people. Hence, the tendency to "dumb down" societies by their leaders, particularly their religious leaders. Constantine's actions had huge ramifications on the development of attitudes about learning, reward, & punishment (effecting those on crime & rehabilitation. And considering all the above in the "grander view" of evolution of humanity over "time", including with "new souls" coming in and "old souls" leaving, it is understandable. The question is (IMO): how fast can we learn to get along during *this* era -- given it's amount of polarization, climate warming, weapons of mass destruction, and apparent increase in the capacity and extent of violence by extremists -- that is, sufficient to develop and maintain planet sustainability / livability / 'getalongability', perhaps even to evolve the whole of humanity (?)

          I think about these kinds of things every time a hate group or new organization of extremists pop-up. About those that get drawn into them, and those that might not have. Just in case you know anyone who knows anyone "on the edge" about these things and... So, proactively, what to do "about history" if we wanted to? uhmmmm... keep fighting ignorance? Yeah, that's it smile Really though, and encourage meditation... And... if you think my stuff is boring, well, get creative as you move minds and hearts in your own wonderful way! [7/25/12]

 

FOOTNOTES

1 PI-RATIO DYNAMIC: referring to the universal constant of all life as we know it), significant in the spirals of DNA and the essential bio-magnetic resonance of the atoms that compose it's structure. The pi-ratio proportion is the basis of Sacred Geometry, and the "Golden Rectangle" is a geometric form which graphically describes those proportions. Biologically speaking (to begin with), we may have started out with much more similar genetics than we have now. Influences of Life processes, not to mention long term evolvement, changes those genetics. I like to say that we (All Things) are all interconnected by Spirit, but evolving mind defines, interprets, manipulates the connecting Spirit in the process of learning what Spirit is, and what it's for, etc. And so our genetic development is influenced by our learning. And yet, I believe the "blueprint" for the genetic code is not altered, only amended at best. When we learn and develop patterns in harmony with that blueprint, we are "rewarded" with increased resonance with the essence that set up the purpose of the universe - and we are given increased connection to that, thus insight. By the way, this relates to my view of 'Integration of body, mind, and Spirit' being a big part of the plan, of a higher purpose for existence.
 
2 ABOUT RELIGIONS: I'm not pushing ANY particular religion. I believe each individual is responsible for figuring out what makes him/her the best person s/he can be (whether that's a religion or otherwise). As for myself, I extract tools and practices that work as long as they work in that light. I believe there is a "golden thread" that connects all major religions.

Specific to Karma & Reincarnation:
          There are many references in the early Christian documents, supporting the belief in reincarnation, including per teachings of Jesus. In the 5th century, the church sought & destroyed the Gnostic gospels, highly related to the pluralistic nature of early Christianity and the role of women (including bishops and prophets). The Gnostics were very large part of Christianity during 1st two centuries (see Grail History & Related Philosophy section at the Chalice Art Page.

          Other references include:    The book, *The Gospel of the Nazirenes: Reconciling Reincarnation & Christianity Through Science*, based on the aramaic manuscript, "Gospel of the Nazirenes," edited by Alan Wauters and Rick Can Wyhe;    *Twenty Cases Suggestive of Reincarnation and other scientific works on reincarnation* by Dr. Ian Stevenson of the University of Virginia;    *The Search for Grace*, (Llewellyn 1997) by Dr. Bruce Goldberg includes a very convincing case history.

          Constantine (280-337), according to the early contemporary Christian historian Eusebius, while praying, saw "a cross of light" in the heavens, and an inscription, "conquer by this." The previously pagan Constantine was thereby converted in A.D. 312 and, following his defeat of Maxentius at Milvian Bridge, united the Empire and declared Christianity the official religion. [W.H. Frend, The Rise of Christianity, pp. 473-515, Phila.: Fortress Press, 1984]

          Before 325 AD, "There was no 'bible', just a lose assemblage of papyrus reed texts, scrolls, sheep skin documents and tablets", according to Gregg Braden (interview). The Emperor Constantine saw them as "redundant and too mystical to make sense to people at the time, and then created 'the Council of Nicea to assemble all the existing biblical materials into one text. "Twenty-five books were taken out and an additional 20 supporting reference documents to scholars were removed. Then the Council condensed and reorganized the rest." However, they have turned up again in the approximately 800 Dead Sea Scrolls which also have been largely hidden from public scrutiny.

          What Constantine did, was all about motivation, IMO - to unite people (those who would form what is now Europe) who could not be united any other way at the time (so used the prevalence of the network of Christian clergy throughout the land as the basis for organizing the government). The one-life, Heaven/Hell stick motivator, for this total re-structuring from the ground up, was about fear, of course, although many Christians do emphasize love. But the times have come where fundamentalists (religious extremists) are taking the fear driver to the bank. (in context with the history of Christianity)
          The law of Karma (and Reincarnation) doesn't de-motivate or decelerate the learning process, it expands the process in the context of responsibility - it's toughest message provides the sufficient fear motivation if/as needed: "there is no free meal, you will just keep coming back till you you get it". But the Law of karma is way bigger than that, and it's perfectly customized according to how each individual is motivated in a given lifetime.

          Karma is simply the structure by which we magnetically attract the circumstances, by which we all learn whatever we need to learn, in a given lifetime or set of lifetimes (To summarize in context what was said above in the section, "On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace"). Ok, that's not simple, but it's purpose is to facilitate an understanding of Love, via understanding the Divine Parent/Child relationship, via the learning of the highest forms of Love & Compassion, in accordance with the Highest Loving Will of the Highest Loving Power - And do that over as many lifetimes as it takes*. Because that would be a totally impossible order to fill in just one lifetime. Jesus & Buddha are said to have lived many many lifetimes to get to the point of mastery they had attained.

 
2a On the Aramaic Language & Biblical Multiple-Translation:
          *Let There Be Light - The Seven Keys* by Rocco A. Errico - Explains how the language of Jesus, Aramaic -- not greek, and not latin -- has been translated and retranslated from through those two languages into what we read as the bible. Thats two and/or three times, depending on the chapter or verse, etc - before it's in english! This extends not just into the language, but also to the customs, idioms, psychology, symbolism and philosophy of the Semitic peoples, the teachings of the patriarchs, prophets, as well as Jesus and his apostles. Errico's much more direct translations often enough leads to a different understanding of intent and meaning of verses - with implications in whole perspectives on approach to personal and social challenges. Other books by Errico include *The Ancient Aramaic Prayer of Jesus* and *The Mysteries of Creation.*
          From "LET THERE BE LIGHT..." (pages 17 to 21) by Dr Rocco A. Errico: "The following are comparative differences between the King James version of the Bible and my translation of the Aramaic Peshitta text. These direct translations from Aramaic to English shed much light on these ... changes completely..."
         [I find the differences interesting, and sometimes understand(?) that the KJ translator was just trying to "keep it simple", whereas other times, other considerations seemed to enter in. The following selections are more of the later -cp]:

Job 12:6
    --(KJV:) The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God bringeth abundantly.
    --(Aramaic:) The tents of robbers shall perish, and the assurance of those who incite God because there is no God in their hearts.

Job 31:10
    --(KJV:) Then let my wife grind unto another, and let others bow down upon her.
    --(Aramaic:) Then let my wife grind (meal:) for others and let her bake bread at another man's place.

Psalm 7:11
    --(KJV:) God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
    --(Aramaic:) God is a just judge and He is not angry every day.

Psalm 23:2
    --(KJV:) He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters.
    --(Aramaic:) And he makes me to dwell in pastures of strength. He guides me by refreshing waters.

Isaiah 43:28
    --(KJV:) Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse and Israel to reproaches.
    --(Aramaic:) You princes have defiled the holy place (the sanctuary); therefore I have given Jacob to the curse and Israel to shame.

Jeremiah 4:10
    --(KJV:) Then said I, ah Lord God; surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall have peace; wheras the sword reacheth unto the soul.
    --(Aramaic:) Then I said, I implore you, O Lord God, truly, I have deceived this people and Jerusalem exceedingly because I have said, You will have peace, and behold, the slain sword reaches as far as the soul.

Matthew 5:3
    --(KJV:) Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    --(Aramaic:) Delighted are those who surrender to God, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 6:34
    --(KJV:) Take therefore no thought for the morrow; for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
    --(Aramaic:) Now do not worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will take care of itself. Enough for the day is its own trouble.

John 1:14
    --(KJV:) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten son of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
    --(Aramaic:) And the Word took human form and dwelt (tented) among us; and we saw his preciousness (glory), a preciousness like that of an only beloved son of the Father, who is filled with loving kindness and justice.text)

          On the bible and evolution of Man: My use of the phrase "purposeful existence" was not stated in any reference to any "purposeful universe" theories, however interesting *some* of them may be, at least in part. I believe that Darwin had it right as far as the scientific evolution of species. My question and discussion, research if you will, in context with the other topics covered on this page, is about where and how and why did the original design of the whole process, for ALL solar/planetary systems and incarnate beings therein, get put into effect.

 
3 ABOUT STRUCTURE & LEARNING:
          I have my own interpretation of the role that religion has played in providing structure for groups of people, of related events through history, and of related perspectives around that:

              a) I appreciate structure and what keeps folks "out of trouble." That is to say, the non-productive violent, or otherwise life-harming kind of trouble is the kind one should try to avoid. And religion facilitates that well *for some people* or during some phases of their lives at least.
              b) After that, other than that, and/or with that, other systems of self-management and community management are more effective.

              c) no one system works for all - that's just part & parcel with the indispensable diversity of mankind - hence, it's knowing if/when there's a need to switch to the next system - some people can probably do alright with the same system all their very static lives- due to their own continuous comfort and ease (perhaps ideal unless overly/purposely insulated), mental or emotional paralysis/ malady, and/or because they truly are from a different planet or plane of consciousness (but then how would I know? I'm just trying to be open here... Wink.

              Personally, and based on the (my) "Purposeful Existence" Theory (described in the above section) I do believe in an afterlife of sorts - besides reincarnating into another body; am speaking of life even after all that). But not a simple "be and good and you'll get [any/all manner of things we value while in a body]". At that point, whether you get a "body", or what kind of "vehicle" you get, is probably part of the choice set. In the meantime, we create our own heaven and hell time while in a body - which can certainly be enough to learn from. Which is the whole point, in the process of getting to that "other place." (Even the BROAD variations in biblical translations easily allow for this.) In that light, a combination of earth-centered and eastern perspectives work for my cosmological perspectives, as well as for systems of self-management and sprititual practice, but I had to develop that on my own and during/ after considerable study and homework on myself. And, by the way, therapists in training practice on each other and learn to appreciate it's benefits, and so often continue it afterwards. There should be no shame or stigma attached to it. Some use religion as "therapy" after all (and probably should). I like Jesus as a master teacher - but I prefer the more metaphysical perspectives about his person, life, teachings, and purpose. But as implied, I don't begrudge anyone's version so long as it works according to (a) above smile Meanwhile, there is the "Considerations and Strategies in the Management of the Emotional Body" at the "Body-Mind Integration" essays page.

              d) We (Humankind) learn from "history" (we certainly hope at this point) - but also from our own individual soul process over thousands/millions of years (re-incarnating as often as needed with other souls, of course). Worst case scenario (?): we are here mainly to learn- the hard way if necessary, to love each other, and we keep coming back, because in that case our souls are more or less permanent, reincarnating in yet another body, to pick up where our souls' education left off. And IF so, we might consider that there will always be "new souls" in class - along with the old souls. Afterall, how boring would it be otherwise? <metaphysician's dark humor Wink > It seems that our emotional clocks were set back to the days of the crusades by the events of 911, reinstating fear as the primary instigating or motivating force and perceptual filter in the feeling bodies & eyes of humanity. Fear is the hardener in the walls of structure. And some would say that was devised & implemented by joint effort between extremist fundamentalist Christians & Muslims to hurry armegeddon and heaven's rewards. IMO, now is time to teach karma - via the more complete context such as included in the above section (Footnote 3) "Specific to Karma & Reincarnation", under "On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace". For an analytical treatise on structure as relative to various cosmological viewpoints, see "Spiritual Battles" (New 11/28/09)

              e) Much of the challenge to evolution (or one of the cycles of our learning, whichever way you want to look at it) had to with a key event during the dark to middle ages. This event was the divergence between the philosophers, who also served as the closest thing to psychologists at the time, and the most powerful religious authorities of that period. This divergence had much to do with the acceptance of intuitive-based thinking vs analytical-based thinking - what we would now call the "Left/Right brain split." In his book, "No Boundary" Ken Wilber elaborates on what we would now call the "Left/Right brain split" (very related to the "body-mind split" or "mind-body split", but not exactly the same) and the psycho-spiritual significance of history and the evolution of consciousness during those periods. His chart, "Therapies and Levels of "The Spectrum of Consciousness'" has been included along with the section, "'The Lords of Culture' and Listening - A story about Language, Relationship, and the Body-Mind Split" [New 7/31/2010 by yours truly] and related implications at the Chalice Art page (in the sections on "Origins of Man" and "A Relationship Between the Dramatic Rise in Popularity of the Holy Grail/ Chalice Media and the Desire for Pragmatic Balancing of Extremes?")
             Which essay includes a section on "The Empathy Movement" introduced with, "In September of 2012, The Center for Building a Culture of Empathy and Compassion initiated a discussion, preparatory to much greater things, laying the groundwork for much greater things worldwide". Hopefully more in-depth and socially applicable trainings will stem forth from this project - with widespread growing results that make the difference needed. This section includes reference links as well as my own ideas for that.

              f) Back to current application (chopping wood, carrying water, etc): And given a little deductive reasoning from there, one would have to consider that we might not, on the whole, change the course of the planet - due to the relatively new souls who are still learning basic ethics (at 3rd chakra level [3rd of seven chakras]), as they enjoy their power trips in positions of leadership at the expense of others. I said "might not" - if only because the election of President Obama would seem to be a sign that we may actually work things through. And then there's that more than lingering Neo-Con influence in the military/intel/justice departments that would use his administration to dash all such hope. Yes, we CAN (eventually with sufficient establishment of Instant RunOff Voting). Because, well, having put a fair amount of study into the science of change and a little dancing with the political grassroots thing (you might have noticed a few statements at this site)... Under that "worst case scenario" (paragraph 'd' above) no action is wasted- it's all part of the learning (Compassion, Unconditional Love). Don't get me wrong- that doesn't mean we can't still shoot for efficiency!

  4 "The epigenetic approach, dynamic holism and the new organicism"
    (from "Evolution" by Mae-Wan Ho - Biology Department, Open University Walton Hall, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA, U.K.)

          The epigenetic paradigm which encompasses both comparative psychology and biology may be broadly characterized as follows:
          1. Development occurs by epigenesis, in which the experience of the organism's environment enters as necessary formative influences, there being no preformation or predetermination in the genes.
          2. Evolutionary changes are initiated by developmental changes.
          3. These developmental changes are non-arbitrary, being determined by the dynamics of the epigenetic system itself.
          4. Developmental changes may be assimilated into the new organism/ environmental system as a whole, which set the parameters for further evolution.
          5. Epigenesis mediates between the biological and social levels serving to integrate the two into a structural and functional whole.
          6. Development and evolution are continuous, with the organism participating in shaping its own developmental and evolutionary history.
Key section on this page relative to the above: "The demise of the genetic paradigm and revival of the epigenetic approach": "The assumptions that genes are stable, and that they are insulated from environmental influences, are pivotal to the genetic paradigm and neo-Darwinian theory. They were inspired by Weismann's theory of the germplasm which, however, has been flawed from the start. Plants do not have separate germ cells at all... Most animals also do not have germ cells that separate from the rest of the body early in development (Buss, 1989). Furthermore, there is no evidence that the genes in germ cells are stable, or immune from environmental influences once they have separated from the rest of the body... This is in direct contradiction to the static, linear conception of the central dogma that previously held sway."

IDEALS IN TENSION = INTENTION
[ This reads both horizontally and vertically
(which is part of the whole metaphor it speaks to) ]


In
TENSION


Tension sustains the body  
Paradox sustains the mind  
Suspension is the bridge  
Awareness is the crossing  
Letting go the bridge  
of suspension  









 Values yet to be fully lived
 Potentials to be fully realized
 evolving us
 expanding limits
 of cognitive dissonance
 in abeyance
Time is of no consequence  
in Right Brain Logic


--Prose by Christopher Pringer, Dec'95

Note about the term, *Intention*:
From an Eastern philosophical perspective (and as used here), "Intention" pertains more to *Being* than *doing*, to *motivation* than *goal*, and implying that what comes from such *Presence* will naturally accomplish what is most needed.




About the evolvement of mankind
(and some challenging ideals for same)

      What would it require for all people to have conscious empathic capacity and still discern the highest priorities for their own daily tasks?
      E.G.: What might be some of the key steps along the route from here to then?
      And what if that were in contribution to a "Divine Plan" that included a requirement for progress towards self-realization as well as group cohesion?
      Is it true that honoring Individual integrity and acknowledging the inter-connectedness of humanity are mutually dependent activities?



THE WORK ETHIC and the Body Mind:

        Work is what happens when one would rather be doing something else.
No matter what you're doing, at that point it becomes work, right?
(eg: When I enjoy "the work" so much as I often do, it just feels strange to call it work)
But where would that put "the work ethic" ?   
I mean, which "should" be more rewarded - working more with less motivation,
or working less with more motivation ?   Which would/should be more rewarding ?
And ... if every work that happened was essential
to the overall purpose of all and it was realized as such,
and If there was no work that was associated
with the making of someone less than someone else (less worthy of love and respect),
how much more enjoyable then would every kind of work be?
And would we, as individuals, then find it easier to know
just exactly what work it was that we enjoyed the most?
Is there any relationship between such questions and stress or muscle health?

Is this a
      a) trick question,   b) rhetorical question,   or   c) essay question   ?   <grin>

        What the Mayan Elders are Saying About 2012 by Carlos Barrios" - Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq'ij (is a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide) of the Eagle Clan. Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars circulating. Carlos along with his brother Gerardo studied with many teachers and interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge. Carlos found out quickly there were several conflicting interpretations of Mayan hieroglyphs, petroglyphs, Sacred Books of 'Chilam Balam' and various ancient text. "...All was predicted by the mathematical cycles of the Mayan calendars. -- It will change --everything will change. Mayan Day-keepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth ...The date specified in the calendar Winter Solstice in the year 2012 does not mark the end of the world. Many outside people writing about the Mayan calendar sensationalize this date, but they do not know. The ones who know are the indigenous elders who are entrusted with keeping the tradition. ...Now is the time to awaken and take action. ...Everyone who is here now has an important purpose. This is a hard but a special time. We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history. ...Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action. ..."

Firmage, the condensed version, Feb 22, 1999 (Word Doc): Inspite of it's self-assuming title, this proffers a most interesting and thought-provoking set of considerations regarding Humanity's evolution - culturally & psycho-spiritually. "Evolving In A Place Called Eden Is A Promising Young Civilization. We Grow More Dangerous Yet Wiser Each Day. Teachers Have Taught Us Through The Ages. ...In the final analysis, there is one way to determine whether there is truth to the tale that I have told in this book. We must succeed in the quest to demand that our leaders - most of whom are as uninformed on these subjects as the general public - allow those bound by secrecy oaths regarding these subjects to speak freely. Then we will all - me included - start the long process of learning the rest of the story." Some Chapter headings include: "A First Test: A Stable Civilization", "A Second Test: Maturation of the Culture", "A Third Test, Part 1: Engineering Gravity", "A Third Test, Part 2: Overunity Energy", "A Third Test, Part 3: Powers of the Mind", "A Fourth Test: Saving the Environment", "A Fifth Test: Emergence of Species Mind", "A Sixth Test: Reunification of Science and Spirituality", "A Seventh Test: A Successor to the Consumer Society" [current related site: ParadigmResearchGroup.Org]

The essay has been edited since then, primarily before it's first web posting (at my own webspace at AOL) in 2000. And that editing was primarily for format, with some work put into the intro section (which section seems to me the most easy to MIS-understand and most difficult to sufficiently improve).

          Summary From essay,
"A Re-balancing Transition Process for Healing
Government, the Economy, and the Global Warming Crisis"
:

          One could say that medical over-categorization has led people to be bigoted and "extremist" towards their medical conditions. This can apply to political conditions, whether they be *called* capitalistic, socialistic, communistic, right-wing or leftist (especially while the defining or labeling of various political strategies, let alone mentioning "class war," can be so controversial in itself). As in medicine, finding and maintaining the right balance of elements in any governing system requires an unprejudiced and objective analysis. That includes the appreciation of (the diversity of) the proper place and role of almost every type of strategy and mechanism ever used in history, all considered in the context of each their settings (era, place, and circumstance), in order to develop what will work optimally for any current circumstance. And then a "Diet" is prescribed to facilitate transition to and maintenance for the truly workable system. Easy? Of course not, certainly given these requirements for transition: Time for integration of what we've learned mentally, and for healing much of what we've learned emotionally (in the "school of hard knocks") for necessary realizations regarding relationships (with self, others, Higher Power as applies), values, purpose, direction. If these don't apply, then it could only be easier. Wink   Also at the "Poly-Psy Citizen Healing" page:

Other pages at this site are born out of similar hopes, dreams, and visions. When I use the term "evolution" at this website, I am referring to the psycho-social evolution of humankind, resulting in lasting change on the physical level (particularly with the brain), and not to the science of evolution and the controversy around that. And usually from the perspective or paradigm that looks at the recent psycho-social trends - in comparison to the overall course of mankind.

  Body-Mind-Chalice Integration Art Index Page  
(Towards an "ART & SCIENCE of Body, Mind, & Spirit Integration")

            Presenting artwork on the "Chalice" or Grail theme (by yours truly), both hand-made & artistically rendered computer-generated works, & a little bio on how it began & developed. This art is born out of the 3D geometric vision/ visual "seen" in 1985, which experience was complete with correlations to deep (pre-Christian) symbology - which initiated the research into the correlations to the legendary meanings of the Holy Grail (and sources, and how and why that was later edited by "the Church"), as well as into various body-mind-spirit correlations, & healing alchemy & energy dynamics. All this related both the body & the grail elements to the mind's interface, in a way that makes sense of many otherwise-would-be paradoxes & mysteries, bridging arts & sciences, with implications related to whole health, including one's relationship with his/her cells. And when incorporating "sacred geometry" into the the rendered symbols (per pi-ratio) -also relevant to the DNA of all Life (proportion as essential to function), most interesting artforms seem to naturally appear.
          Essentially (Per mystical symbolism which precedes anything any religion has, or may yet, to do with it), the chalice is about the human embodiment of Spirit (or Who or whatever It is that created & connects all Life) into the three "lower bodies" (mental, emotional, & physical) which compose the "Body-Mind". Which is also a "vehicle" for the balancing & integrating of Humanity - individually & communally. Chalice "Productions" may thus refer to each person AS a chalice in development. There are essays on various geometry, proportion, function, symbolism, history, & possible implications, including a working Summary for Pragmatic Balance of psycho-social objectives & approaches for bringing about an evolution of mankind as alluded to at this page and addressed at various others at Chalice Bridge.
          The ARTWORK: overall is an eclectic/symbolic mix of multiple layers of brights and subtles, often emerging out of veils, mists, or "darkness", with thematic components that blend in sacred geometry very symmetrically yet rendered with an artistic balance of textures and grounding touch. There are many samples at this page, as well as many others at Chalice Bridge, with full size images at Artist Websites .Com (of Fine Art America).

The "Pragmatic Balance" section
and its sister page, "The Mystical Jesus - Selected Reviews"

          "A Relationship Between the Dramatic Rise in Popularity of Media and the Desire for Pragmatic Balancing of Extremes?" is about relationships among the symbolic chalice, the Holy Grail, the legend, the actual related history, current day religious extremism, and the future (psycho-social) evolution of Man.
          That is, it extends from extensive historical references (noted/linked therein) that extend back to Celtic pre-Christian times as well as to the Celtic Christian, and what is referred to as "the Matter of Britain", and more. Except for the Dark Ages which are so-named due to the most disappointing lack of historical data - very puzzling to scholars for the last many centuries.
          And I interpret that lack of documentation as directly related to the transition period (including inquisitions and destruction or hiding of documents, as well as plagues) -- that followed Constantine's assembly of documents that became the bible (via "the Church", as they censored parts of them and kept out many other documents) -- and all that implied for "the Church"s agenda, including plans for rule of what was to become Europe.

          The sister page, "The Mystical Jesus" provides the detailed story form summaries for certain historical aspects (grail, bloodline, templars...) and the lost years and more mystical background of Jesus. While all that is put into context at the "Pragmatic Balance" section.
          At Chalice Bridge, "The Bloodline of Jesus" is actually not a primary focus when comes to the symbolism of the chalice / grail, but as one evidence of the symbolism as presented. Which symbolism relates to the purpose of "polarity" in the universe, not only at the atomic level per Sacred Geometry, but in relationships - magnetism / gender / other opposites in continuum, including *extremes*). And to related interpretation of the grail legend as relates to the history (with the summaries in context), to the (psycho-social) evolution of Man, to the world's key religions as well as the Gnostics (by nature of that which unites all of them, although is not necessarily about them). All that is then related to, with implications for, current times and potential future scenarios. And to why there have been "holy wars" - and, more importantly, to why there is absolutely no need for them (if there ever was). Here, the bloodline is as much about EVERYONE having the divine connection (and inheritance and potential), as it is about one family having it.

          If you like good drama, begin with the "Mystical Jesus" page. If you like the infrastructure of analysis and implication, with lots of symbolism, psychology, and references, then off to the "Pragmatic Balance" section with you. smile To follow up, also at the Chalice Art page, is the essay, " 'The Lords of Culture' & Listening - A story about Language, Relationship, & the Body-Mind Split - An Anthropology of Intelligence & Paradigms in Context" (7'10) accompanied by, "Therapies & Levels of 'The Spectrum of Consciousness' " a seminal chart by Ken Wilber; "Paradigm Shifts" (7'10).

    ChBullet   The Fascia-Memory Project

What would actually change
our health-care system the most?


          One of my main dreams is a society where/in everyone, beginning in childhood, is taught how to feel/see/read their own body-mind communications such that preventative health maintenance eventually becomes second nature. That would then be part of our upbringing and public schooling. Sample benefit: Over time we would learn to channel our initial stress response into channels more creative than that of fight or flight. And actually, much of this "adrenal response" has been shown to be a learned response, and not necessarily innate. Hence, we would be encouraged to re-awaken and build upon what I believe to be a natural inclination and inner knowing - conscious self-healing and continuous expansion of awareness.) This vision was born out of what I saw to be one of the most wonderful potentials for (should we find scientific basis underlying) the original Fascia Memory theory ('94-'95), which was published at the Future Health .Org site in June'96.

          How about a means of diagnosis that takes so many aspects of a person into account, that it creates a capacity for designing a truly healing program for most any patient? Nice dream you say. How could a diagnostic system be that accurate for so many conditions? What would enable our medical system to consider, so surely and comprehensively to so much greater depth and context, the many processes for the many different kinds of individuals, than we do now? Well, of course, such questions indicate a healthy skepticism. But let's dream just a bit more, but this time, from outside the box, as they say:

         What if there were a system of assessment that would bring together the great many disciplines of health-care - particularly including Eastern, Naturopathic, and even the many among the Western - and to a degree of collaboration that was far beyond what we've ever seen before? In case you don't know, such collaboration is currently not a reality to any meaningful extent, certainly for most health conditions. Particularly between those focusing on the body, and those focusing on the mind, not to mention the relative few focusing on the connection between the two. Bottom Line: When enough people become sufficiently motivated to know the degree to which individuals can heal themselves and each other through body-awareness-based preventative maintenance, then the research will be funded and implemented.

         The Fascia-Memory Project is about research and development into the relationships among connective tissue (fascia), objective/subjective experience, the neuro-physical interface between emotion, and the brain, and "body-Memory." About developing connective tissue scanning devices and diagnostics hardware for discerning and illustrating all that. Goals include the developing optimal means for applying that R&D in health care practice, as well as enhanced systems for individual development of body-awareness for preventative health maintenance. A long term project, of course, but intermediate goals and sub-projects could have considerable effective change. The range of application extends from the medical industry to personal home use, to public education, to social and correctional rehabilitation.

          The project's web site includes pages for Intro & Summary (with a detailed table of contents with links to the other pages - Description & Purpose, Goals & Objectives, Research & Development, Theory, References & Links [extensive], Project Overview Chart, Project Flow Chart ( "Pert" style output by 'MS Project' ), and links to accompanying documents at this site. For context and perspective on this far-reaching multi-faceted proposal, see (page 8) the Fascia-Memory Project Overview Chart.

Challenges and Realistic Goals For Survival and Creating A Desirable Future, © Nov'95

NOTE: At this website the term "evolution" refers to that of human consciousness, resulting in lasting change on the physical level.
Evolve Humanity, ChaliceVortex&Planet'evolve-balance', © Chris Pringer PolyPsyArt 2008
       
          We are currently in the "Information Age" of global-scale *collection and organization * of data and data systems. The "Holographic Age" will be marked by "...the integration of data (a precursor and main component of the Holographic age) ...will bring about a tremendous explosion in capabilities of unprecedented scope, magnitude, and depth... The ability to offer/affect pre-designed physiological, emotional, mental, and psychic change on human beings..." Intelligence manages information, but wisdom manages Intelligence. This "adventurous" draft into the future (or potential future scenarios) at many key areas of evolvement of Human Society. Organized web page includes sections: "Getting There From Here - and The Political Maze In Between," "Some Trends and Developments In Health and Environment," "Psycho-Social Transition And Rehabilitation" (in corrections, education, and health), and "The Role Of Intuition Coming Home...". Recent additions include: much improved "Basis of Assessment - with "Seven Phases of Evolution"; "On Potential Realities, Ideals, Goals, and Accomplishment"; and "On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace" (& Purpose, Structure, Religion, Karma), and ref-links for the "updated" prophecies for the year 2012.
          ie: [from original August 1995 paper:] "...Our trial and initiation prior to entering the next age is dealing with the issue of 'Polarization.' So much depends on how we manage this issue during the 1995 - 2005 period of time... critical on many levels. The implications may therefore be timely, a balance of warning with hope and direction => ...'Polarization' refers to the two opposing extremes of over-identification and enmeshment. The first extreme, over-identification, relating to hyper-egoism or narcissism, includes misplaced patriotism and competition for the sake of wrong-making and degradation, nationalism that unduly separates people, bigotry, elitism, and related extremes. The 2nd extreme, enmeshment, relating to the blurring of proper boundaries (such as with emotional or energetic enmeshment, sexual abuse, any improper 'dual relationship'), includes that which occurs with [non/]secular/political or political/personal conflicts of interest. Appropriate structure (laws, regulations, professional guidelines, cultural mores, rules of conduct, etc) is the result of healthy personal and societal discrimination of values, and related priorities and goals... ...will develop out of necessity - much due to the aberrations of the info age (psychological manipulation and necessary defense systems practiced by/for/against businesses in competition as well as for military reasons => ...personal data as common knowledge <=> 'Age of Exposure' => ...the decade of the media moguls and the survival of democracy..."

        But if we get through all that, one of the many noted benefits include "... We will have the unique opportunity to learn first-hand from the most hi-tech, research data-backed, psychological ...Awareness on/of the various levels & interrelationships between these areas... The application of intuition may find an unprecedented role in terms both of breadth and of its popular integration with the more logical approaches ...As a result, various systems of 'Integrated Diagnostics' will be developed..."
          The original paper was email published in Nov '95 on listserv@intuition.org (Institute of Noetic Sciences) and Spiramed@sjuvm.stjohns.Edu. Yes, *1995* - So I guess the "system" I used was not so bad (based on the "Seven Phases of Evolution" section on the page). While intuition did enter in between that system and the "if this, then this" logic - scans of original notes with hand-drawn flow-charts included, I've never called this "a prophecy," but a perceived spiritual challenge with potentially great rewards - an opportunity for taking responsibility. That 10 year 'prep' period has come (and gone?) - wherein so much is being (has been?) determined about how and how soon we begin this next age - or if we do before the planet (otherwise) overhauls itself. But remember "that spaceship" that's going to save us ? Wink Well, IF it happens, not to worry, we won't miss a minute of it. Because, IMO, the pilots are none other than ourselves - our Earth-Steward selves that is. And besides, IMO, God wouldn't deprive us of the realization that we are so capable! (And responsible. Or don't we want to earn our way ?!) [2009, 2013]

"Synthesis" Shirts !!!


Some have claimed that wearing a "Synthesis" shirt cured that groundless state of begging for extreme circumstances, just so they could locate the center of the universe!!!
Wink
Ok, not really, but some did say
it just made them feel good to wear it!


You can always find out for yourself via the "Synthesis" Shirts from Chalice Productions - where you can have yourself centered between mandalas silkscreened on both sides of a shirt! smile

This was one of my first mandalas - but my only shirt (for sale Wink) - There are still a few hundred left - and with quantity discounts, you can make me a deal!
