Science and the Collective Unconscious

After I finished my previous post Cycles and Timelines I wondered what period in history I would focus on next. Tarnas in his book used the Saturn/Pluto and the Uranus/Pluto cycles a lot to point to some very interesting data in history. Aspects between Pluto and Uranus as well as Saturn are very often pointers…… Continue reading Science and the Collective Unconscious

Always Together but Not the Same

In my previous post I wrote about values as being transitions from one phase of life into another, that I placed in a model of development. In this post I want to write a little more about the model of mind and matter where the model of development is based upon. How the four elements relate to each…… Continue reading Always Together but Not the Same

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

Me, my Self and I

The ‘self’ is a concept that I know best by the writings of Carl Jung. I don’t know if my understanding of the concept is right, but I thought I more or less ‘got it’. But as mentioned in my previous post, David Bohm also talks about the ‘self’. And somehow I got the feeling…… Continue reading Me, my Self and I

The Development of Creativity

Recently I wrote a post about the place of creativity in human development as a whole. In the post I also mentioned how I see the development of creativity itself. I wrote another post on that before, where I used my model of development to describe creativity in different forms (like dancing, painting, drama, architecture,…… Continue reading The Development of Creativity

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

Is our World Dualistic after all?

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?

The Importance of Individual Human Experience

David Bohm has some very interesting things to say about how he sees the future of our world. In the interview from the previous post, he says things that, at first sight, just look like common sense. But if you look closer to what he says, I think it is rather revolutionary. At a certain…… Continue reading The Importance of Individual Human Experience

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

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

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

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

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
