Gurdjieff: Real Understanding

Posted in evolution, gurdjieff, gurus, transformation on April 24, 2011 by ewakening

Among Gurdjieff’s closest pupils there has been no unanimity as to how we are to understand his intentions.  He made many confusing and contradictory statements that could not be attributed either to carelessness or to caprice. … He was well aware that the sense of satisfaction that overtakes our thinking apparatus when we recognize a formula that fits our mental patterns is a barrier to real understanding.

— J.G. Bennett, Gurdjieff: Making a New World 

Logical necessity (Einstein)

Posted in evolution, philosophy on February 27, 2011 by ewakening

What I’m really interested in is whether God could have made the world in a different way — that is, whether the necessity of logical simplicity leaves any freedom at all.

— Einstein

Beginning Middle End (Lyman)

Posted in evolution, god on September 19, 2010 by ewakening

In the beginning, there was God.
In the middle, there was Man.
In the ending, there was more God.

— Mel Lyman (1938-1978?)

(Un)Conscious Projection (Grossinger)

Posted in enlightenment, evolution on August 22, 2010 by ewakening

Most people, trapped as they are in symbol clusters and instincts, do not even know that they exist. Even the smartest of us are enacting bare protocols of subsistence, food acquisition, self-projection, and object possession. We are set on the implacable tracks of a machinery of eternal return. …. What are we unknowingly projecting now, that in twenty thousand years will become the Earth? Will our civilization of machines survive long enough to launch a civilization of light?

— Richard Grossinger, from 2013: Raising the Earth to the Next Vibration (p. 58)

Mind and God (Dyson)

Posted in brain, evolution, genetics, god on May 23, 2010 by ewakening

I do not make any distinction between mind and God. God is what mind becomes when it has passed beyond the scale of our comprehension. …. Atoms and humans and God may have minds that differ in degree but not in kind. We stand midway between the unpredictability of atoms and the unpredictability of God. Atoms are small pieces of our mental apparatus, and we are small pieces of God’s mental apparatus.

— Freeman Dyson

Mental Revolution (Halal)

Posted in brain enhancement, evolution, technology on April 13, 2009 by ewakening

Just as the Industrial Revolution was powered by the need to overcome poverty, and the Information Technology Revolution is crucial for managing complexity, the world is today in the throes of a ‘mental revolution’ to resolve the global crisis of maturity.

— William Halal, from Technology’s Promise

Arguelles

Posted in evolution on September 29, 2007 by ewakening



Beyond the purple sky of the holonomic, post-historic future stretches the planetary rainbow, a celestial guardian being. While representing the cave and sacred site guarding rainbow serpents and dragons of aboriginal and early hieratic civilization, the rainbow guardian has always been with us. Like the psi bank that it symbolizes, its chromatic pattern has always beckoned to us to fulfill our potential. As the symbol of realization, bliss, and completion, it represents the “end condition” of humanity totally attuned to and operative with the spectrum of environmental energies. Such an expression suggests a complete synesthesia, a condition of complete planetary synthesis almost unthinkable today. Yet it is a condition to with the logic of the holonomic equation inescapably points.
