Wholeness Speaks

To address the great existential crisis we all face today with as much understanding and equanimity as possible, I have written an 18-page article titled ‘Wholeness Speaks’, inspired by Eckhart Tolle’s Stillness Speaks, Ramesh S. Balsekar‘s Consciousness Speaks, and Vimala Thakar’s Spirituality and Social Action: A Holistic Approach. So, I am now writing more for spiritual seekers interested in social action than academics, still much constrained by the infrastructure of their profession.

Reflections on My Eightieth Birthday

To celebrate fulfilling a major purpose of my life, I have written a 12-page memoir, titled ‘Reflections on My Eightieth Birthday’. This has been inspired by Bertrand Russell, who had similar objects in life and who also wrote an essay with this title when he reached his eighties. On the day that the Russians celebrated the end of the Second World War in Europe, I then wrote a short piece titled ‘What Has Happened to Us?’ to answer a question that a physician friend posed in a poem. Inspired by feedback I received from these pieces, I have written another one-sheet article titled ‘Gnostic Psychology: The Primary Science’, as a succinct summary of where I am coming from.

However, a Jungian psychologist has told me that with so many cooks stirring the broth, it is difficult to find a way through the language and argument each of them uses. I have attempted to resolve this dilemma with the incomplete Glossary on my other website, acting like an information systems architect, focusing on universal generalities, rather than the particulars of specialists. But such an endeavour is unlikely to succeed. For changing the meanings of words can only be based on the radical transformation of consciousness that arises from profound Gnostic understanding. So, to emphasize that I am still content with ‘what is’, despite such misunderstandings, I have written two final monographs titled ‘Enjoying Wholeness’ and ‘Being a Pioneer’.

Maintaining Inner Peace

As winter turns to spring here in Sweden, to maintain Inner Peace while Vladimir Putin orders brutal Russian troops to invade Ukraine, I have written five one-sheet monographs. They reflect a synthesis of occult and rational mentalities, consummating the sacred marriage of science and spirituality, being titled ‘Revealing the Truth’, Our Quest for World Peace’, ‘A Holoramic Vision’, ‘The Mathematical Universe’, and ‘Describing the Ineffable’. They are available on the 2022-publications page of the website for the Alliance for Mystical Pragmatics, yet to be born.

For, although we cannot prevent the near-term extinction of our species, no matter how awakened we might become, with a deeper understanding of what is happening to us all as a species, I still feel that more could transcend hope and despair, acknowledging that Love is the Divine Essence we all share.

Memoir on Humankind

In response to the great existential crisis facing humanity today, I have written a memoir on my life’s journey titled ‘Humankind: Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we heading?

This monograph is more an expression of the Ineffability of my inner being than an exercise in communications. For the True Nature of all humans is Wholeness, as the Totality of Existence, beyond compare. There is thus no other in Wholeness, no one to communicate with.

In contrast, for the most part we are taught that we are fragments and that we must fight our fellow humans for a slice of the finite monetary pie, falling far short of realizing our Infinite Potential, the title of F. David Peat’s biography of David Bohm’s own search for Wholeness in the Implicate Order.

Nevertheless, throughout the ages mystics have realized that humans are never separate from the Divine. So, as we increasingly bring our deepest inner experiences into science and business, there is still a possibility that we could go beyond narrow, one-sided views of human life, awakening to Total Revolution, as Vimala Thakar encouraged us all to do in Spirituality and Social Action: A Holistic Approach.

Looking inwards

To mark the first flowers of spring in Sweden, I have written an eight-page monograph on how the creative power of Life has revealed a hidden world to me by guiding me to look inwards, as many spiritual seekers are doing today.

This piece is the seventh reflective monograph I have written this year as an introduction to my book Unifying Mysticism and Mathematics: To Reveal Love, Peace, Wholeness, and the Truth, the first three chapters and the fourth of which are available on my website for the Alliance for Mystical Pragmatics.

By starting at the end and ending at the beginning, the principal purpose of this book is to show how we can end the long-running war between reason and religion and spirituality and science.

For unifying mysticism and mathematics in our practical, everyday lives is essential if we are to live intelligently and consciously at the end of time, free of the fear of death.

Communicating with Each Other

Taking a break from researching and writing the final chapter of my final book on Unifying Mysticism and Mathematics, I have written a four-page monograph on ‘Communicating with Each Other’. For communications, as a field of study, derives from Latin commūnicāre ‘to share’, a critical issue at the present time with the world rapidly degenerating into chaos, not understanding what is happening to us all, as a species.

This monograph is the third I have written this year, exploring what we all share, endeavouring to shed some light in the darkness of ignorance. The others are a two-page introduction to ‘The Theory of Everything’ in January and a six-page summary of ‘The Universal Science of Reason: Generated from the Source with Self-reflective Intelligence’ in February.

Learning to communicate with each other with mutual understanding is particularly important at the present time, in the midst of the eighth mass-extinction event, although, in 1982, Jack Sepkoski and David M. Raup identified only five mass extinctions of the species so far.

To clarify this situation, here is a table of seven mass extinctions of land animals that the revised fifth edition of The Times Concise Atlas of the World identified in 1990, each marking the transition from one geological epoch to another, millions of years ago (mya).

No.Epochal transitionMya
1Ordovician–Silurian438
2Devonian–Carboniferous 360
3Permian–Triassic248
4Triassic–Jurassic213
5Jurassic–Cretaceous144
6Cretaceous–Paleogene65
7Oligocene-Miocene25

Today, some say that we are in the middle of the transition from the Holocene geological epoch, meaning ‘wholly new’, to the Anthropocene, to indicate the impact that humans are having on the Earth’s ecosystems, also an entirely new situation facing humankind.

But we should not blame humans for destroying the habitat that we need to survive. All structures, emerging from the Divine Origin of the Universe, are born to die, as the Buddha pointed out on his deathbed, when he said, “Behold, O monks, this is my last advice to you. All component things in the world are perishable. They are not lasting. Strive on with diligence.”

With few able and willing to accept the imminent extinction of Homo sapiens ‘wise human’, is there nevertheless a possibility for some, at least, to hearken to these words that Matthew Fox wrote in the Foreword to Andrew Harvey and Carolyn Baker’s Savage Grace: Living Resiliently in the Dark Night of the Globe in 2017, “Ours is a time not only for scientists and inventors but also mystics and contemplatives to join hands so that our action flows from being and from a deep place of return to the Source.”

Bringing Universal Order to chaos

To further demonstrate the simple method for bringing Universal Order to the Totality of Existence, and hence our collective lives, currently in much chaos, this month I have completed the fourth chapter of my final book Unifying Mysticism and Mathematics: To Reveal Love, Peace, Wholeness, and the Truth.

It is titled ‘Sequences, Series, and Spirals’, as there is no better way of demonstrating mathematics as a generative science emerging directly from the Divine Origin of the Universe through the Cosmic Psyche, containing the 99% of the Universe inaccessible to our five physical senses.

As the Cosmic Psyche contains all mathematical objects, the section on ‘Spirals’ explains the mathematics, causality, and aesthetics of the growth of sunflowers in our gardens, displaying interlocking sets of spirals, whose sizes form a Fibonacci sequence.

The first chapters titled ‘Business Modelling’, ‘Integral Relational Logic’ and ‘From Zero to Transfinity’, together with the Prologue and Epilogue from January 2019, are also available on my other website for the Alliance for Mystical Pragmatics, which is rather wounded at the moment as the drop-down menus do not work.

Viewing the Global Crisis with Self-reflective Intelligence

Since my birth in 1942, I have felt rejected and ignored by the dysfunctional family and culture I was born in, a hostile environment that has driven me to realize my fullest potential as a superintelligent human being, able to use the transcultural, transdisciplinary modelling methods underlying the Internet to solve the ultimate problem of human learning.

This holistic vision has led me to see with Self-reflective Intelligence that Homo sapiens ‘wise human’ is not immortal and that we could end our days in a glorious blaze of Light, Love, and Life, having awoken from the slumbers we have been in for thousands of years.

But with the complex interactions of the COVID-19 pandemic, rapid economic collapse, accelerating abrupt climate change, and the sixth mass extinction of the species dominating our lives today, whether we shall be able to wake up in time now looks most unlikely.

Nevertheless, I have felt moved to write a two-page piece on the challenges facing humanity today titled ‘Viewing the Global Crisis with Self-reflective Intelligence’, trusting that this could help people see their lives in a broader and deeper perspective.

As a further explanation of where I am coming from, I have also written a six-page monograph titled ‘My Quest for Oceanic Ecstasy’, much inspired by Stanislav Grof’s The Holotropic Mind, holotropic being cognate with entropy ‘in transformation’. For, at these critical times we live in, not only do we need to turn towards Wholeness, we also need to transform the Whole, counteracting the second law of thermodynamics, which physicists like Brian Cox still believe in, saying in the ‘Destiny’ episode of his BBC documentary series The Wonders of the Universe in 2011, “Entropy always increases, because it’s overwhelmingly likely that it will.”

These two monographs complete a trilogy that I have been moved to write this month, the third being ‘Demystifying the Mystery of Being’, which I announced in my previous post, written as an addition to an article I wrote for the Science and Nonduality (SAND) conference website in January, titled ‘Unifying All Opposites in Wholeness’.

The SAND community did not accept this contribution, contrary to  E. F. Schumacher’s maxim for mapmaking, given in A Guide for the Perplexed: ‘Accept everything; reject nothing,’ also a fundamental principle of spiritual well-being, beyond hope and despair.

So, as I am getting little response from the world to help harmonize evolutionary convergence by completing the final revolution in science, just as Johannes Kepler and Isaac Newton completed the first in the 1600s, I have needed to take some time out from my mathematical studies to complete my own psychospiritual healing, knowing that there is nothing and no one outside me—as Love, Wholeness, and the Truth, the True Nature, Authentic Self, and Genuine Identity of us all.

Demystifying the mystery of Being

Last autumn, On the Mystery of Being: Contemporary Insights on the Convergence of Science and Spirituality was published, introduced and edited by Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo, co-founders of the Science and Nonduality (SAND) conferences. They say in the Introduction, “we can never understand, but only surrender to the mystery we call life.” So the SAND conferences are gatherings where people celebrate the mystery of life.

In contrast, the creative power of Life, bubbling up directly from the Divine Origin of the Universe, like a fountain, has shown me how to demystify the mystery of Being and Life, answering many fundamental questions of human existence, such as Who are we?, What is our place within the overall scheme of things? and Where are we all heading at breakneck speeds?

Today, I joyfully celebrate this wondrous understanding, having realized Peace by unifying mysticism and mathematics, science and spirituality, and all other opposites in solitary Wholeness, where there is nothing and no one outside me. 

For those curious to know more about the solution to the ultimate problem of human learning, generally regarded as unsolvable, I outline how this wonderful awakening has happened in a sixteen-page monograph titled ‘Demystifying the Mystery of Being’. 

Inspired by Vimala Thakar’s call to awaken to Total Revolution, it highlights some of the cultural, cognitive constraints that are holding back many from realizing their fullest potential as superintelligent humans, in contrast to so-called superintelligent machines, able to beat humans at chess and other games.

Mapping the Cosmic Psyche

As the 2010s turn into the 2020s, I have written an 18-page monograph titled ‘Mapping the Cosmic Psyche’, as a summary of all the books, essays, and articles I have written during the past decade.

The Cosmic Psyche is the ninety-nine per cent of the Universe that is inaccessible to our five physical senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. In our materialistic world, it is thus the least understood proportion of the Universe, viewed as Consciousness, not as the physical universe.

Although I have been using the term Cosmic Psyche in my writings for fifteen years, this is the first time I have highlighted the creative role it plays in all our lives. By clarifying some points in my other writings, I trust that this piece could help people with their own self-inquiries, intelligently and consciously preparing for the next decade or three, which are likely to be the most tumultuous in human history.

As we rest in Stillness in the Presence of the Divine, may Love, Light, and Life be with us all at these unprecedented times.
