THE ROLE OF INTUITION COMING HOME
PART 3 of
| "THE ROLE OF INTUITION COMING HOME" is "Part 3" of the 4 parts of the original essay, EVOLUTION TRENDS, which presents a projection of trends based on a system outlined in the "Basis of Assessment" section, and as described in "Seven Phases of Evolution" [added to that page Nov'09]. Section additions to the essay have been noted in the main page's introduction, including a scan of the August 1995 (hand-written) paper. Subsequent edits in the original essay have been put in brackets, dated, etc. |
Later added sections to "The Role of Intuition..." include A Summary 'On Point' added Dec'13 (on both pages), and a Related Pages section. Summary Outline of soon to be added, "Scientific Research On the Limbic System - Co-Enveloping the Ventricles" - and with some excitement actually.
That is, 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 it is the ventricles which were noted in 1995 as would be found central to the role of the "Grail-System," "Grail-enhanced minds," or "Grail Mind." (So, we're getting close. AND there are implications to that.) [July-Aug'16]
|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.|

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.
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 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 in 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.
"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.
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.
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 century [referring to 2000-2099], 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 naÃ¯ve 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, we are only in the third level or chakra (of seven) -- the Information/Manipulation age -- in our evolution, and hopefully the latter part of it. [ This third level or chakra is put in context in the "Seven Phases of Evolution" outlined at the "Evo-Trends" essay, to which writing this sentence refers ] 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.
[ NOTE: When I use the term "evolution" at this website, I refer to the psycho-social/spiritual consciousness, resulting in lasting change on the physical level, not the physical as we generally consider it (with the exception of the brain). ]

The Holy Grail as a Bridge
I would like to suggest your considering the bodily energy centers (or chakras) as power transformers of divine energy for human use, then considering those energy vortexes forming chalices (see "Chakra Tree Anatomy" pic further below). You might visualize the meeting of ascending & descending energy vortexes, as well as the horizontal extension of vortexes crossing left & right (into the plane of matter, on to/as "the cross" of our existence). Given that, this chalice would be a bridge between the Higher Powers and one self.

(and what I've been trying to do at this website for a few years )
Limbic, Ventricle, & "Grail Systems"
(Please Refer to Summary Outline Chart Below)
Note: 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 (or nearly so - on top and sides). And those are also just under (touching) the cingulate, which is 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). Before 1997 or so, there was rarely any research findings venturing to say the limbic region of the brain was about much more than raw emotion and usually as related to survival instincts, never using the word "empathy," let alone was it about actual *integration* of intellect with emotion. But given all the experience with MRI's and various other brain-scanning equipment while observing behavior, lots of correlations have been established since 1995, but particularly since 2003.
Since then Dr. Daniel J. Siegel has gone the extra mile, assembling his correlations directly from this most conventional scientific research, -- IMHO, centering on *The Integrative Function of Limbic System* for the physical and psycho-emotional aspects, that of consciousness, and relationships there among. Siegel has prolifically translated that research into pramatically useful training manuals for students and practitioners, and for a most impressive variety of applications in mental health, especially pediatric psychology, as well as in self-healing and conscious awareness. [reflinks to his website(s) are below] Note that, while I will be focusing mainly on the relationship of the limbic (and functionally related components of the brain) to the ventricles and intuition and related implications thereof (on this page), Dr. Siegel's work in neuroscience extends far wider and deeper, and particulary into the practical applications - both clinical and self-help - of the research into psychotherapy, consciousness, and personal growth. [ Many references about and to his works are noted below the Limbic/Ventricle & Grail Systems Summary Chart ]
As for exploring relationships of the above with *Integrating the Diversity of Mind-Body Functions,* some, if not most, of that will be developed here. While some will relate more to the body-memory, proprioreceptive, and more neuro-muscular and neuro-viseral of the mind-body hook-ups, and be added at the "Fascia Memory" Theory/Project pages. As for how and why they essentially work best when they work together, why it is essential that they do so, as well as how much improvement to the process we can make, that is very much already well developed by Dr. Siegel's work, having made the results ready and available for implementation, and I will add further references to that as includes notes here as well.
Above: anatomical views of the Limbic/Ventricle system(s) - Note that most components are dual or mirrored on each side of the brain (our brains are designed to be functionally inner-collaborative, inner-interpolative). These images showing one side or the other, in some cases with different components shown in the opposite views. Most anatomical images are composed of figures from the Digital Anatomist Project of the University of Washington, assembled & artistically rendered by Chris Pringer, July-Aug 2016.
Meanwhile, neither the ventricles, nor the central spinal fluid (CSF) that is circulated by them, have yet to be recognized (by science) as components contributing to the integrative processes of the brain - per physiology texts or research since the 70's or more. One question here is: What if it is found that the CSF collects information from the 'Other' energy systems (other "spider-web-like information processors around these organs" (as Dr. Siegel refers to them in section 11-4 of "Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology"), to the effect that, the ventricles channel a *previously
Short of that finding (for decades, I suspect - two to four?) there *have* been found possible (apparently very likely) relationships between swollen and/or congested ventricles and some mental health conditions, (so far, mainly) including hydrocephalus, schizophrenia, PTSD, antisocial personality disorder, and dementia pugilistica. What if we generalize all those conditions into (what I will call) "more or less dis-engaged communications among those aspects of the body-mind-brain that are responsible for maintaining a healthfully organized consciousness regarding the identity of and/or with "the Self" relative to that of "the other" ? (Which phrasing may be considered by mystics and metaphysicians as indicative of the duality of that reality that we *live in* - as compared to that reality of unity, of interconnectedness with All That Is, which we are in process of realizing. Ok, so much for that brief digression...)
We might wonder what the results would be - for each of the scientific studies with the cingulate and related deep brain structures - with significant differences first created in the ventricles and or CSF (if it could be done without damaging the bodies or minds of those being tested, of course).
What science has shown that it is good at, is examining health conditions and effectively collating, examining, and *eventually* very productively summarizing the results. When science does this - in context of those with conditions that are related to the above - I am fairly sure we will be able to accomplish what is needed in order to understand much more about the full role of the ventricles, whatever that is. When we perform this research in the context of the above questions, with certain frequency ranges in focus, for each of the bodily energy centers as well as the changes in CSF along the way, having developed the capacity to record, filter, and organize the myriad of data - that is, of a likely as yet unencountered amount and variety of types - then we will see what we will see.
At this point I will refer to the "True Yoga" path noted in the above section, "A Summary 'On Point'," and invoke the term, "Rainbow Bridge," saying that context is everything (especially since *context* is a key part of integration -which this is all about, of course) and leave it at that for now. [Aug 2016]
Reminder: The below chart is a summary of things to come, to the degree not yet covered here. [Apologies, but when you get to Dr. Siegel's books or site material, you may understand why this has been been taking some time - referring to the amount of interesting things to attempt to summarize.
As with the above illustration: Note that most components are dual or mirrored on each side of the brain (our brains are designed to be functionally inner-collaborative, inner-interpolative). These images show one side or the other, in some cases with different components shown in the opposite views - which helps more clearly label them here. IE: the cingulate gyrus is internal to, and a little higher than, the caudate nucleus. And IE: the Thalamus (like the other components shown here) is external (farther to the side) of those components, yet/with left and right sides of the Thalamus joined functionally - if not also totally physically (which would be more apparent with a view from the top). No need to be intimidated - it took me a little while to get "the picture" of things.

How are we ENJOYING
the most appropriate Questions, Answers, and Visions
that are leading us to the most needed REALIZATIONS
and setting the most realistic goals (in God's Reality
- that is, would we be truly inspired)
from this moment forward, step by step
as we ARE attaining our highest POTENTIAL(S) ?
What is the most appropriate QUESTION for right now ?
THANK YOU Body-Mind-Spirit-Higher-Power
for Manifesting ANSWERS to appropriate Questions in
DIVINE Order, DIVINE Love, and DIVINE Timing!
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>
