Understanding the Meaning of Concepts

We bring up our children with too much conceptual abstractions, that they have to memorize. They have to learn concepts without realizing the underlying reality. Learn concepts without understanding the meaning. They have to learn what others think is important. And slowly along the way, they lose the ability to think creative. It is like…… Continue reading Understanding the Meaning of Concepts

What is Art?

If the definition of art has developed over time, and if it is defined as ‘a product or process of deliberately arranging symbolic elements in a way that influences and affects the senses, emotions and intellect’ and also says that the word art was traditionally used for skill or mastery, but later as an intention…… Continue reading What is Art?

Integrity needs Honesty

There can be honesty without integrity, but no integrity without honesty. Although integrity needs honesty, it does not mean you always have to be absolutely honest to others. It just means you have to be absolutely honest to your self. Being honest to others is many times just giving a personal opinion. And that opinion…… Continue reading Integrity needs Honesty

The Concept of Water

Seeing the theme for this years Blogactionday made me think of a story in the book I was reading. The book, On Creativity, is about the importance of creativity. How we all have this inner desire to discover and create something new that is whole, harmonious and beautiful. It is not something rare, it does…… Continue reading The Concept of Water

Intuition, Sensing, Thinking and Feeling

In my previous post I tried to find a model that is abstract enough to provide room for several existing models. Now in this post I want to see if it will fit Jung’s model of the four psychological types: Intuition, Sensing, Thinking and Feeling. I will not use the Introvert and Extravert part here…… Continue reading Intuition, Sensing, Thinking and Feeling

Energy in Matter, and Concepts from Information

In this post I want to rename some of the concepts I used so far on this blog. The reason is that some of the words were not abstract enough to cover the whole phenomenon. In the core model I used the words ‘psyche’ and ‘language’ because they were originally used by Jean Carteret. But in…… Continue reading Energy in Matter, and Concepts from Information

The Form and Content of Thought

After I finished my previous post, one line kept buzzing in my head. ‘Mathematics is about thought, not the content of thought, but the form in which we can hold the content of thought.’ And at the same time I was searching for a picture to visualise how that could be. Sort of structures that…… Continue reading The Form and Content of Thought

Thought is about Becoming, not Being

A few weeks ago I got a book from the library that really fascinated me. And especially one chapter was so interesting that I wanted to write several blogposts about it. But while doing that, I found out that this book was an older version. And there was a more recent version that had an…… Continue reading Thought is about Becoming, not Being

Making a Concept of the Whole

After spending a lot of time trying to understand the structure of the rheomode, the experiment of David Bohm with language, I suddenly stopped and asked myself ‘what again was the reason for him to do this experiment’? He explains that in his book ‘Wholeness and the implicate order’, but because the book is way…… Continue reading Making a Concept of the Whole

Individuation Process 3

The zodiac can be divided into three areas. If it is used to describe the human development from birth to death, the signs can be used to mark the age of an individual human being. Of course it is a very abstract way and it can differ from person to person. But in general there…… Continue reading Individuation Process 3

Individuation Process 2

My previous post was unfinished because I pushed the publish button to soon. And therefore I was not even finished  laying down the basic concepts as I wanted to use them in the post. Those basic concepts are essential because there is no other way for me to get the words and concepts clear to…… Continue reading Individuation Process 2

Individuation Process 1

Another really interesting concept of Jung is actually kind of opposite to the concept of collective unconscious from the previous post. It is his concept of individuation. Individuation is the process of transforming the psyche by bringing the personal and collective unconscious into consciousness. As already became clear in my previous post, I see it…… Continue reading Individuation Process 1

Information Exchange

A few days ago, someone on Twitter wrote about a Youtube video of an interview with David Bohm, after he had send some quotes from Bohm that caught my attention. I followed the link to the Youtube video and was immediately fascinated by this man. I am not exactly sure why, but it seemed that…… Continue reading Information Exchange

Defining Spirit and Soul

Soul is one of those words with many different meanings. Everyone has his own interpretation of that word. Another one of those words is spirit, which is often used where someone else might use soul. And others might not use those words at all, because there is no actual ‘thing’ that can be measured. The…… Continue reading Defining Spirit and Soul

Basic Concepts

With my latest model of combining Integral theory and the Zodiac, the model is turned. Now it is the same as in Integral theory (LL is indeed lower left) and now the Zodiac is upside down. I use the words ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ instead of ‘subjective’ and ‘objective’. And instead of ‘impersonal’ I now use…… Continue reading Basic Concepts

What versus How

Until now I have mainly been writing about my other blogs for the aboutpage. And re-posting some posts from those blogs to get things started on this blog. The reason is not that I don’t know what I want to write about. The reason is that I don’t know HOW to write it. Do I…… Continue reading What versus How
