Thought Thinks the Problem is Out There

David Bohm on Thought: Thought has developed traditionally in a way that claims not to be affecting anything but just telling you the way things are. Therefore people can not see that they are creating a problem and then apparently trying to solve it. The ecology has not in itself a problem, it works perfectly…… Continue reading Thought Thinks the Problem is Out There

A Coherent Approach to Reality

David Bohm on Coherence and Consciousness: If we can have a coherent approach to reality, then reality will respond coherently to us. But nature has been tremendously affected by our way of thinking. There is very little left on earth, that isn’t affected by how we were thinking. The major source of unhappiness is that…… Continue reading A Coherent Approach to Reality

Mechanism vs Meaning

Recently I listened to an interview with the very intriguing title: Is Consciousness Energy? The title made me really curious, as I have been wondering about that for a long time now. It is an interview of Dean Radin with Christian de Quincey, whose final conclusion is that consciousness is not the same as energy.…… Continue reading Mechanism vs Meaning

Focus vs Context and Language vs Psyche

A few weeks ago I came across a blogpost about a book called The Master and his Emissary. The writer of that post thought the book was very important, maybe even the book of the century. In that same blogpost was a video with the writer of the book, Iain McGilchrist. I watched that video…… Continue reading Focus vs Context and Language vs Psyche

This is the third time I am going to upload the same video on this blog. The reason for that is that I think this video is extremely important. I think it gives a way out of a very old problem. The problem of choice between Monism and Dualism. It is a video of the physicist…… Continue reading Is our World Dualistic after all?

Three Subconscious Levels

In Three Levels of the Mind I used three signs, to symbolise the primordial, individual and universal mind. In that context, all three together represent the conscious mind. In my previous post, Subconscious or Psyche, three other signs represent the subconscious mind. That part of all knowledge that is not consciously known, but largely influences…… Continue reading Three Subconscious Levels

Consciousness Discussions

These last days I have been discussing consciousness. I really like to discuss that. What is consciousness, how is it created, are animals conscious? Just one of my favorite subjects to discuss. But also one of the most difficult ones. Because in order to discuss something we need consciousness itself. We need some level of…… Continue reading Consciousness Discussions

Collective Unconscious

Just now I looked at my previous post Individual Language again and I suddenly realised something. I mentioned several theories and ever so many people that came up with those theories. But no matter how important those theories are (in general, but especially in the purpose of this blog) there is one theorie that is…… Continue reading Collective Unconscious
