What is Quantum Consciousness?

We are living in the blooming of a new view of reality. The discoveries of quantum physics are rapidly converging with the ancient wisdom traditions, in an evolutionary development that could be called Quantum Consciousness. This new cosmology sees the universe as a "Unified Field" or inter-related web without separate parts, alive, conscious and meaningful. The primary reality is consciousness. The material realm is secondary. Meaning is fundamental. We are evolving at a fierce rate toward these new understandings, and toward a new conception of our own nature. We are all the Cosmos becoming conscious of Itself and turning back to look at Its handiwork.

Romantic Delusion

Romanticism involves hyping up life. It seems to be generated by the feeling that ordinary life is too gray and uninteresting, and needs to be amped up in order to be acceptable. Perhaps Romanticism is at base a reaching for Essence, the source of all meaning and depth. In an attempt to create more meaning and . . . → Read More: Romantic Delusion

The Holomovement

During the past 400 years, since the work of Isaac Newton and Rene Descartes, science, and Western culture as a whole, has become obsessively fixated on the material level, the surface layer, of reality. Non-material levels of existence have dropped from the framework, and the abilities of Western men and women to perceive unmanifest realities have . . . → Read More: The Holomovement

Living Light

Living light is an ancient mystical perception that has been validated in every generation by mystics. Every time period has people who see through the outer skin into the depths of reality. They perceive that, beneath the material world that we experience with our primate senses, there exists a realm of glowing, self-luminous light, co-terminus with . . . → Read More: Living Light

Leaving the Body Behind

Human lives are individual and full of varied experiences. However, there is one experience that is common to us all at the end of life. We are all working our way toward the moment when we will leave the Earth and our body behind. The culture prepares us not at all for this universal experience. It . . . → Read More: Leaving the Body Behind

Nested Self-Similar Structures

One of the most potentially game-changing ideas that has appeared recently is the idea of nested self-similar structures. It offers a vision of the universe that is simultaneously ancient and ultra-modern. It opens spaces and possibilities of development that could move science, and our whole culture, into a new and richer place.

The idea originated in its . . . → Read More: Nested Self-Similar Structures

The Black Silence

Beneath all the phenomena of the world and the phenomena of the mind is a deep, black Silence, full of pure potential. It is from this silent, black Field that all forms and phenomena arise, both mental and physical. Though in the beginning this black Vastness can be terrifying, a large part of our maturation is . . . → Read More: The Black Silence

The North Star

In the wisdom traditions, the North Star has been used as a metaphor for orientation. It is also known as Polaris, or the Pole star. It is located almost exactly above the Earth’s rotational axis, and appears to remain fixed in place while the stars in the sky rotate around it. For this reason, it has, . . . → Read More: The North Star

Astrology

For millennia, astrology was esteemed and deeply valued. It had the first place of honor in all of the great high civilizations—China, Babylonia, Greece, Persia, and India. It was also important in lesser civilizations all over the world, such as the Celtic culture in Britain, Ireland and Scotland, and the Meso-American cultures of the Aztecs, Mayas, . . . → Read More: Astrology

Mathematics

Mathematics is a mysterious thing. It works predictably, every time, and we don’t actually know why. It is an ordered, structured system of immense conceptual beauty that is rooted in the invisible realm. We can see the order emerging as we do our calculations. A huge part of our understanding of material reality, and our technological . . . → Read More: Mathematics

Being and Personality

There is only one thing in the universe. The infinite diversity that we perceive with our senses has, underneath it, a singular, living Reality. The conventions of science fiction may actually get us closer to understanding this than theology. Theology usually gets convoluted, knotted up, self-righteous and off-track. All theologies seem to do this. Science fiction, . . . → Read More: Being and Personality
