A

Allah is a word for God used in the context of Islam and other monotheistic religions of Arabic-speaking communities.[1] In Arabic, the word means simply "the God" It is used primarily by Muslims and Bahá’ís, and often, albeit not exclusively, used by Arabic-speaking Eastern Catholic Christians, Maltese Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Christians, Mizrahi Jews and Sikhs.[5][6][7] It is related to ʼĔlāhā in Aramaic.

ALLAH AKBAR: Meaning "ALLAH is the Greatest"

The Animus / Anima. Animus – Anima: Woman’s psychology is founded on the principle of Eros, the great binder and loosener, whereas from ancient times the ruling principle ascribed to man is Logos”. The animus /anima is an archetypal inner image of a person of the opposite sex, normally an unknown individual. A woman has an inner animus, a man an inner anima These inner images have an extreme power and if the anima / animus is showing up in a dream, it will leave the dreamer deeply touched and fascinated. The fascination can be stronger than if the person had been physical. The animus / anima is a projection of 50% of yourself!

Aphrodite “Venus – Aphrodite, goddess of love, beauty, fertility and the spring. Born of the foam of the sea, her chariot is a scallop shell, drawn by dolphins. As patroness of gardens, the rose, lily and narcissus are all sacred to her. Also known as “the goddess who shines”, she is attended by the Graces and the Seasons. Her golden girdle apparently made the wearer irresistible, and Hera once asked for a loan of it, as a way of preventing the frequent amours of Zeus. To punish Aphrodite’s hubris and vanity in her own beauty, Zeus decreed that she would marry Hephaestos

Archetypes A detailed theory of how archetypes interact is formulated by the scientist Rubert Sheldrake. Talking about how the different fields influence formation, he says: "similar things influence similar things over time an space. In this understanding, growing organisms are shaped by fields which are both within and around them, fields which contains, as it were, the form of the organism". The archetypes can be conscious or unconscious. Unconscious archetypes, if they are of the same sex, are called shadow. An archetype, conscious or unconscious, of the opposite sex is called animus if it is a woman’s inner male, anima if it is a man’s inner female.

Akasha The Hindu name for this fluid matter is Akasha (“ether”, the fifth element); other knows it as Cosmic Electricity, the Primeval Serpent or Fohat. But it doesn’t really matter what we call it and it is totally impossible to define or name all the different forms it has taken since the beginning of the world, for every creature capable of thought, feeling and movement, that existed or has ever existed, is constantly impressing new vibrations on it. Its exact nature is extremely mysterious, and whatever is said of it will always be both true and false. But this we can say with certainty: it is capable of recording absolutely everything that happens in the universe. […] If the scientists who put all their faith in materialism took it seriously they would be obliged to modify their understanding of the nature of matter.

The art of brotherhood In Indian mythology, “Gemini is Mithuna, the twins of different sexes. In classical Hinduism, it is the symbol of ideal marriage, represented as husband and wife, a couple in loving embrace. This is the central theme of numerous Indian myths: the blessing of holy matrimony”.

Jan Knappert, “Indian Mythology”, p. l73

Astral light Initiatic Science teaches that we live our lives immersed in the ocean of fluidic matter known as astral light. This fluid is so sensitive that it bears the record of everything that occurs in the universe: the most insignificant gesture, the slightest, most superficial emotion, every fleeting thought that goes on in our minds: it is all recorded. According to esoteric tradition, astral light is an extremely subtle substance emanated by all creatures, from human beings, animals and plants, to the rocks of the earth and even the stars in the heavens.”

Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov: “The zodiac, key to Man and to the Universe”, p.9-20

Astral dreaming In astral dreaming things are more vivid; and the individual/dreamer will start the dream where he actually is as himself, as an example while lying in his own bed. If you open yourself prematurely into the astral level in dreams, which means before you have a good insight into your own shadow aspects; you might have terrible nightmares.

What is a black hole? The "escape velocity Loosely speaking, a black hole is a region of space that has so much mass concentrated in it that there is no way for a nearby object to escape its gravitational pull. Since our best theory of gravity at the moment is Einstein’s general theory of relativity, we have to delve into some results of this theory to understand black holes in detail, but let’s start of slow, by thinking about gravity under fairly simple circumstances.

Black Hole Sound Waves It is now understood, that Sound in fact is the force behind how the uneven distribution of matter has happened. According to NASA, Sound waves 57 octaves lower than middle-C are rumbling away from a supermassive black hole in the Perseus cluster.

Joseph Campbell Joseph Campbell (1904 – 1987) one of the foremost authorities of our age on ancient mythological images, characters and tales,

Cancer, the crayfish Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac, and the Sun appears to pass through this region of the sky between the end of July and to the end of August. […] Although relatively small and with few bright stars, Cancer is still interesting, mainly for a beautiful, if faint star cluster lying deep in its heart. This group has perhaps fifty stars at a distance of some 520 light years. Through binoculars, the stars appear to be buzzing around a honey pot, the centre of the cluster, giving rise to its popular name, the BEEHIVE Cluster. In ancient times, though, it was known as the Manger.”

Sheila Gilheany: “A Little Book of Stars”. P.16- 18.

The sign of Cancer Our esoteric understanding. The sign of Cancer is connected to the process of incarnation, to birth and death. Cancer asks: “Is this what you want?” Birth and death is the two possible answers to Cancer. The force behind reincarnation, physical birth, is related to desire – which is the keynote of planet Earth. In the cosmos, in the discarnate state, the desire is to become reborn, to taste the pleasures of earthly life; and being in the physical body, the desire and longing may be towards God. “The grass of the neighbour is always greener”, regardless on which side of the fence we are on – incarnated or discarnate.

The Greek myth of Cancer: the Hydra When Zeus seduced Alcmene by taking the form of her husband Amphityron, the great hero Hercules was born. In anger at yet another of Zeus’ indiscretions, Hera, his wife, cast a fit of madness over Hercules, which caused him to murder all of his children. To make retribution for his crime, Hercules was given twelve tasks to undertake. The second of these was the slaying of the Hydra, a monstrous sea-serpent. Whenever one of its nine heads was cut off, two more would take its place. To further frustrate the efforts of Hercules, Hera sent the Crab to nib at his heels, but the hero crushed it underfoot and with the help of his friend Ioalus managed to overcome his adversary. In gratitude for its loyalty and self-sacrifice, Hera placed the Crab into the heavens where it eternally remains.

Walter Stevens-Hofer: Myth of the Zodiac

The cat in the box!: The cat in the box! Have you ever heard of the cat in the box? Well, have you ever heard of Erwin Schroedinger? He is the man who first understood that the act of observing affected what was observed. He came up with this idea of putting a cat in a box. Along with the cat is a device with an atom that could decay (radioactive decay) and cause a poison to be released and kill the cat. Or, the same atom could decay and not cause the release of a poison and the cat would live. It all depends on the nature of the atom’s decay. Since the probability of the atom decay one way or the other is 50-50 we have no way of knowing which way the atom decayed until we opened the box and looked at the cat.

Benoit Mandelbrot When iterative equations are applied to points in a certain region of the complex plane, a fractal from the Mandelbrot set results. Changing number + fixed number = Result Benoit Mandelbrot was born in Poland in 1924. […] [Some time after 1977, and] with the aid of computer graphics, Mandelbrot was able to show how [an almost forgotten mathematician] Julia’s work was a source of some of the most beautiful fractals known today. The Mandelbrot set is made up of connected points in the complex plane. The simple equation that is the basis of the Mandelbrot set is included below. Fractals make up a large part of the biological world.

Castor and Pollux: Astronomically, the two brightest stars in this region (Gemini) are Castor and Pollux, the heads of the two interlocked brothers. According to legend, these were twins born of Queen Leda of Sparta […] Although Castor and Pollux appear close to each other in the sky and are of similar brightness, they are really separated by several million miles. Pollux, an orange giant, is some thirty-six light years from the Earth, while Castor, which appears to be blue-white in colour, is forty-five light years away. In fact, Castor is an amazingly complex object.

Sheila Gilhaney:  little Book of Stars.



The Myth Castor and Pollux: 
When Leda assumed the guise of a wild goose to avoid the advances of Zeus, the god managed to seduce her by taking the form of a swan.
From this union emerged two great eggs, one containing Pollux and Helen of Troy, the children of Zeus, the other containing Castor and Clytemnestra, children of Tyndareus the mortal husband pf Leda.

The character armour The CHARACTER is the totality of the mechanical, automatic and unconscious ways of reacting, by which the individual maintained his or hers psycho-physical balance; a balance that makes sure that the feelings, emotions and bodily impulses which from various reasons have been blocked, remain separated from the consciousness of the individual.

A closed universe “A closed universe means that it will expand to some point at which gravity will take hold and bring it all back to a hot ending or another Big Bang. Here I [Cliff Clinton] have chosen the closed universe because I believe that the fabric of space will at some point take up the strain caused by the energy put into it at the time of the Big Bang and stop the expansion”.

Edited from article on the net by Cliff Clinton: http://www.gravityms.com/

The collective unconscious The collective unconscious […] appears to consist of mythological images […]. In fact, the whole of mythology could be taken as a sort of projection of the collective unconscious. We can see this clearly if we look at the heavenly constellations, whose originally chaotic form were organised through the projection of images […]. These influences are unconscious introspective perceptions of the activity of the collective unconscious.” C. G. Jung (Collected Works, vol* Para 325) Classical Physics cannot explain consciousness because it cannot explain how the whole can be more than the parts. Stapp’s thesis is that reality is created by consciousness, as consciousness causes the collapse of the wave function that in turn causes reality to "occur".Anything possible exists - somewhere in the ‘multiverse’.

COEX SYSTEMS SYSTEMS OF CONDENSED EXPERIENCE Stanislav Grof’s description of the organization of memory in the human consciousness: A COEX system is a dynamic constellation of memories (and associated fantasy material) from different periods of the individual’s life, with the common denominator of a strong emotional charge of the same quality, intense physical sensation of the same kind, or the fact that they share some other important elements. The COEX systems represent a general organising principle operating on all levels of the psyche.

Grof, Beyond the Brain p.97

The collective unconscious contains unconscious, collective, inherited contents, among them, the instincts and the archetypes. It is a force within the individual with a potential of either creativity or destruction. The collective unconscious is the common “bed rock” (Karmic issues) level of the human psyche, shared by all human beings.

The content in dreams: is the total scenery: people, trees, animals, cities, landscapes, furniture, season of the year, time of the day, weather, etc. The feeling or the mood, the "atmosphere" can either be only vaguely presented, or it can be very clear, cut in forms as specific things, people, etc.

Cosmic energy-dance: The universe as a whole is in an ongoing cosmic energy-dance.
The research of the subatomar world in the 20’Th century has laid bare the inherent dynamic structure in matter. It has shown, that the components making up the atom , the subatomar particles, is dynamic patterns, they do not exist as isolated unities, but only as integrated parts of a unsoluble net of interactions. These interactions includes a constant stream of energy, manifesting as a exchange of particles, a dynamic interchange where particle is created and dies in a constant changing energy-pattern. The interchange between the particles results in the stable structures, that the material world consists of, even though they are not static, but constantly vibrating in rhythmical movements. The universe as a whole is part of perpetual movement and activity in an ongoing cosmic energy-dance.

Cyclic or rather spiralic model of human development Oriental astronomy teaches a cyclic or rather spiralic model of human development, the closer we are to our sun’s dual, the higher is our civilisation, the further away we are, the lower is our civilisation. Meaning that there will be a constant rise and fall of civilisations and of the general ethical and intellectual standars of man. In other words, in any given time, the general population will have a level of development corresponding to the Yuga, the age the earth is in at that particular time, meaning that we have a rise and fall of civilisations happening, with a full circle lasting 24.000 years.

Cymatec: Sound affects physical matter 
Through the pioneering work of Ernst Chladni (1756 - 1829) and Dr. Hans Jenny, it has been shown that sound affects physical matter. Chladni drew a violin bow across the edge of metal plates which were sprinkled with fine sand. Different rates (frequencies) produced certain geometrical patterns. 
With more modern technology, the Swiss Dr Hans Jenny investigated what happens when sand, fungal spores, dust, water, etc, are vibrated by sound waves. He used crystal oscillators which can maintain an exact frequency, and invented a machine called the tonoscope, which allowed him to view the result of changing the sound in any way.

Dharma  can loosely be translated as “right living” meaning a way of living that does not create bad karma. In scientific language, the laws of Dharma and Karma indicates that since whatever we feel, think or do ,is an energy-interaction, this feeling, thinking or doing will have an effect on ourselves, the energy we emit and thus on the whole universe. In other words, it is not possible to play hide and seek with aspects of ourselves, at least it is not possible to hide from our conscience, the universe, God, whatever we do will have consequences, good or bad.

What is Dharma and right living? “Dharma – the eternal laws of righteousness that uphold the universal structure and the very existence of human beings”. “When there is harmony with the divine workings of creation, problems will solve themselves. It is as simple as that – and as difficult as that”. “The cosmic order [.] that upholds the universe is not different from the moral order that rules man’s destiny.”

Paramahansa Yogananda: “A World in Transition” p. 185 footnote

Double-poled awareness: Focus your gaze in a relaxed way on the mandala, at the same timeas you in your minds eye connect with your entire being, your spine, your heart or your 3’ eye it relates to, andponder the contemplation that belongs to it. This is called double-poled awareness, and is a classical technique to enhance meditation (used in the western spiritual traditions for example on Christian Icon’s, in the east for example on mandalas of deities, the Thangka’s) The idea is that when the two directions of thought - towards the image and towards for example the reference point in your body, when these two directions are of equal strength, a qualitative leap will happen. The mind will be suspended and a meditative state is experienced. This will most likely happen only in fractions of a second at a time, with the normal mind taking over in between.

The double-slit experiment In the simplest example, the double-slit experiment, the electron is faced with a wall containing two holes, so that it must go through one hole or the other. The universe splits so that in one version of reality – one set of relative dimensions- it goes through the hole on the left, while in the other it goes through the hole on the right.

Dreams might be compared with a radar "The mechanism in dreams might be compared with a radar, which constantly - regardless the level of development is scanning the personality, psychologically as well as bodily, in order to reveal unbalances or one-sidedness in an attempt to correct and adjust matters that are not conductive “.

Fate, karma, destiny “Fate, karma, destiny – call it what you will – there is a law of justice which somehow, but not by chance, determines our race, our physical structure and some of our mental and emotional traits. The important thing to realise is that while we may not escape our own basic pattern, we can work in conformity with it. That is where free will comes in. We are free to choose and discriminate to the limits of our understanding, and, as we rightly exercise our power of choice, our understanding grows. Then, once having chosen, a man has to accept the consequences of his choice and go on from there.”

Paramahansa Yogananda: “An Autobiography of a Yogi” Here quoted from Stephen Arroyo: Astrology Karma & Transformation p.5

The Five ages of Man “Some deny that humans sprang from a serpent’s teeth. They say that Earth bore them spontaneously, as the best of her fruits, especially in the soil of Attica, […] These men were the so-called golden race, subjects of Cronus, [Cronos, Saturn] who lived without cares or labour, eating only acorns, wild fruit, and honey that dripped from the trees, drinking the milk of sheep and goats, never growing old, dancing, and laughing much; death, to them, was no more terrible than sleep. They are all gone now, but their spirits survive as genii of happy music retreats, givers of good fortune, and upholders of justice. Next came a silver race, eaters of bread, likewise divinely created. The men were utterly subject to their mothers and dared not disobey them, although they might live to be a hundred years old. They were quarrelsome and ignorant, and never sacrificed to the gods but, at least did not make war on one another. Zeus destroyed them all. Next came a brazen race, who fell like fruits from the ash trees, and were armed with brazen weapons. They ate flesh as well as bread, and delighted in war, being insolent and pitiless men. Black Death has seized them all. The fourth race of man was brazen too, but nobler and more generous, being begotten by the gods on mortal mothers. They fought gloriously in the siege of Thebes, the expedition of the Argonauts, and the Trojan War. These became heroes, and dwell in the Elysian Fields. The fifth race is the present race of iron, unworthy descendents of the fourth. They are degenerate, cruel, unjust, malicious, libidinous, unfilial, treacherous.”

Robert Graves: “The Greek Myth I”, p 43 (Edited)

The four functions Thinking - feeling And Intuition - sensation Jung distinguished four properties of psychic energy, which he termed the four functions, paired in two sets of opposites: In any individual, one function is conscious (Superior), its opposite is unconscious (inferior), and the remaining two are partially conscious and partially unconscious (auxiliary). The functions combine with the two attitude types (Extrovert and introvert) to give eight functional types.

Four fundamental interactions There are four fundamental interactions between particles, and all forces in the world can be attributed to these four interactions! That’s right: Any force you can think of — friction, magnetism, gravity, nuclear decay, and so on — is caused by one of these four fundamental interactions.

The Gate of Man In Babylon the zodiac sign of Cancer was known as the Gate of Man, through which souls pass from heaven to earth. To the ancient Egyptians, the constellation was known as The Scarab Beetle. This was believed to be a symbol of resurrection and immortality and would be buried with mummies after being inscribed with quotations from the Book of the Dead. Some refer to this mysterious and obscure cluster of stars as the Manger believing it to be the birthplace of Jesus. It has also been known as “The Stars of the Water”.

Genesis Let us make man in our image Genesis 1:25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

GESTALT THERAPY Key points: A Gestaltis a pattern, a configuration, a figure and a background.Gestalt psychology describes how our perceptions is organised in figure/ground pairs Homeostasis is the concept of all living being’s automatic search for and maintenance of inner and outer equilibrium. The holistic doctrinestates that the human being is a unified organism, that all aspects are connected, and that the whole is more than the sum of the parts. The hot chairtechnique. Developed by Jacob Moreno in psychodrama, but made famous by Perls. Building on the gestalt psychology of figure / ground,the client is asked to have an imagined encounter with whatever person or aspect he has an unfinished business, with. Here and now. Perls very much emphasises the concept of HERE AND NOW. Even if the material worked with seemingly is from the past, the emotional releases and transformations seen in the hot chair are acted out in the now Stanislav Grof operates with 3 categories in the human psyche The Biographical layer

 

Stanislav Grof operates with 3 categories in the human psyche:

Our personal history, our personal unconsciousness and the Perinatal layer.

The encounter with birth and death, as they occur in the birth-trauma. The Transpersonal layer 

The consciousness expanded beyond the usual ego boundaries, beyond the usual orientation in time and space.

Grounding: 
Ability to face what is.

Grounding and integrity - Psychologically speaking That the individual is able to be present and partake in everyday life with its duties and joys. 


Grounding and integrity – Spiritually speaking Openness for the higher with the integrity of the mind intact



Ungrounded  Spiritually speaking: Do as you please and lament the consequences


Spiritual and or psychological ungroundedness will also show up as physical ungroundedness, cold feet or hands, Lack of balance.

 

The Gunas Hindu thinking has the concept of three nature forces, the so-called three gunas: ”The three influential principles which regulate and govern environmental and biological processes emanate from the field of primordial nature and pervade the universe. They are qualities of cosmic forces with attributes. The Sanskrit word used to designate them is guna. (An influence that regulates cosmic forces). Sattva (sat, is-ness, truth, being) guna is the force of equilibrium expressive as goodness, purity, harmony, balance, happiness, virtue, and knowledge. Rajas (raj, to glow, to be dynamically active) guna is the force of energy and motion expressive as passion, action, contention, and desire. Tamas (tam, to decline or perish) guna is the force of inaction, darkness, inertia, and obscurity

Law of resonance: A vibrating object will cause other objects to vibrate if these other objects harbour the same vibration as a potential possibility. The law of resonance explains that a certain vibration will start a similar vibration in objects around it, if these other objects latent harbours the possibility for the same vibration.



An example is the two tuning-forks:
If you start a big tuning fork on a wooden base in one end of a room, and have a similar tuned big tuning fork on a wooden base (amplifier) somewhere else in the room, the tuning fork that you did not touch will start humming, even if untouched, sparked only by the vibrations from the first tuning fork. In terms of human receptivity, this means that if somebody harbours a quality or problem that we to some degree harbours ourselves, we will resonate with the person, and knowledge of ourselves will thus help us knowing something about the other person.

Dreams and the three psychological levels of consciousness 1) The psychology of polarities 2) The yinq-yang psychology 3) The psychology of Oneness

Looking at an object “Nobody realises when they look at an object, that it always represent either a danger or a blessing that is lying in wait for them, depending on the nature of the object, its form and its radiations, and also on their own inner state, for their whole being takes on the shape, dimensions and attributes of that object. […] not outwardly anyway. But inwardly, on the psychic level, a human being identifies with what he looks at. This is a biological law of nature.”

Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov: “The Splendour of Tiphareth” p.31 - 33

Love thy neighbour Ye have heard that it hath been said,Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

MAAT. To the Egyptians, the Greek goddes Themis was MAAT goddess of truth and justice, depicted as wearing an ostrich feather, which she personifies. As judge of the dead Osiris presided over the weighing of souls, the jackal-headed Anubis weighed the heart against Maat, the feather of truth. The fate of the deceased was then recorded by the ibis-headed Thoth. As god of wisdom and magic Thoth could be called upon to cast the necessary spells to prove a person’s innocence. The weighing of the years harvest would take place in ancient Egypt when the moon was full in Libra. When the sun passes through this sign at the autumn equinox, day and night are of equal length.”

Walter Stevens-Hofer: Myth of the Zodiac

Major Arcana” the greater secret” “If we imagine twenty-one cards disposed in the shape of a triangle, seven cards on each side, a point in the centre of the triangle represented by the zero card, and a square round the triangle (the square consisting of fifty six cards, fourteen on each side), we shall have a representation of the relation between God, Man and the universe, or the relation between the world of ideas, the consciousness of man and the physical world.

P.D. Ouspensky: The symbolism of the Tarot, p.5 – 7

The Major Arcana cards Are astral doorways. “The TAROT cards are generally regarded as the precursor of modern playing cards, but the primary association with the cards is Individuation. The 78 cards of the TAROT are divided into major arcana of 22 trumps, and minor arcana of 56 cards, divided into the four suits of wands, clubs, pentacles and cups. The major arcana consist of archetypical symbols. Each is equated with a particular "path" on the Qabalistic Tree of Life and can be used as a meditation doorway to a specific area of the astral plane. The 22 Greater Arcana cards … have always been used to help people relate not only to the mind, but instinctively through the feelings evoked by their colours and designs." “The initiates of prehistoric times who created the tarot cards were familiar with all these different levels and states of development of the human consciousness. They depicted these levels of consciousness from the first awakening to divine all-consciousness in twenty-two pictures. These are the “Greater Arkana” of the tarot pack.”

Mandala:  A Sanskrit name for a magic circle. Jung understood mandalas as archetypal expressions of the Self and wholeness.

Benoit Mandelbrot was born in Poland in 1924. […] [Some time after 1977, and] with the aid of computer graphics, Mandelbrot was able to show how [an almost forgotten mathematician] Julia’s work was a source of some of the most beautiful fractals known today. The Mandelbrot set is made up of connected points in the complex plane. The simple equation that is the basis of the Mandelbrot set is included below.

Changing number + fixed number = Result

In order to calculate points for a Mandelbrot fractal, start with one of the numbers on the complex plane and put its value in the "Fixed Number" slot of the equation. In the "Changing number" slot, start with zero. Next, calculate the equation. Take the number obtained as the result and plug it into the "Changing number" slot. Now, repeat (iterate) this operation an infinite number or times. When iterative equations are applied to points in a certain region of the complex plane, a fractal from the Mandelbrot set results.

Membrane theory Lately string theorists have been exploring the possibility that the strings are actually membranes, strings with two or more dimensions.

Mercury The ancient Chaldeans called Mercury “Nego”, the planet of warning, but the Greeks and the Romans named this small barren crater-packed rocky world Hermes and Mercury respectively, for the messenger of their gods, because as observed from earth, it moves faster than all the other planets, a phenomenon which is the result of it being the closest planet to the Sun. Mercury’s year – its period of revolution around the Sun – is just 88 days.

The Mitchell-Hedges Skull: King of the Crystal Skulls the most widely celebrated and mysterious crystal skull is the Mitchell-Hedges Skull, for at least two good reasons. First, it is very similar in form to an actual human skull, even featuring a fitted removable jawbone[…]. Second, it is impossible to say how the Mitchell-Hedges skull was constructed. From a technical standpoint, it appears to be an impossible object which today’s most talented sculptors and engineers would be unable to duplicate. […] The Mitchell-Hedges skull is made of clear quartz crystal, and both cranium and mandible are believed to have come from the same solid block. It weighs 11.7 pounds and is about five inches high, five inches wide, and seven inches long. Except for slight anomalies in the temples and cheekbones, it is a virtually anatomically correct replica of a human skull […]. 


The Moon “Magnificent desolation” In l969, the Apollo 11 landed on the Moon. Second-man-on-the-Moon, Edwin Aldrin, described the feeling of being up there as “magnificent desolation”. Astronomically: The moon is the Earth’s constant companion as they journeys through space. The moon is the Earth’s only natural satellite, and its brightness dominates the night sky because it is so much closer than any other heavenly body. It does not have any light of its own, but reflects the sunlight. A curious fact is that even though the moon is much smaller than the sun, its closeness to the earth makes the sun and the moon appear equal in size.

Myth: “Myth makes a connection between our waking consciousness and the mystery of the universe. It gives us a map or picture of the universe and allows us to see ourselves in relationship to nature, as when we speak of Father Sky and Mother Earth. It supports and validates a certain social and moral order. […] Lastly it helps us pass through and deal with the various stages of life from birth to death. The first function of mythology is to sanctify the place you are in” Joseph Campbell: “Reflections on the Art of Living

REMEMBER: The myths about the planets and the zodiac do not illustrate the interactions between outer people, It is important to understand the interactions as THE INTERACTIONS GOING ON INSIDE THE PSYCHE IN EACH OF US The Myths illustrate how these interactions Honor or not honor, kill or rape Our own inner constituents Regardless of our physical sex.

Aboriginal Dreamtime myths In the Aboriginal Dreamtime myths the moon is associated with pregnancy and childbirth. Daisy Bates was told that if women looked up at Mekka the moon in the sky, he would give children to them, whether they wanted them or not. Any woman who did not want to give birth was very careful not to gaze at the moon.

Greek mythology Moon – Artemis, goddess of the chase, the forest and the wild animals. To the Romans she was Diana, protector of women in childbirth, having being born to her mother without any trace of pain.

Morphic ResonanceHOW DOES FORM ARISE? The hypothesis of formative causation, which is the basis of my own work, starts from the problem of biological form. Within biology, there has been a long-standing discussion of how to understand the way embryos and organisms develop. How do plants grow from seeds? How do embryos develop from fertilized eggs? This is a problem for biologists; it’s not really a problem for embryos and trees, which just do it! However, biologists find it difficult to find a causal explanation for form. […] The question of biological development, of morphogenesis, is actually quite open and is the subject of much debate within biology itself. An alternative to the mechanist/reductionist approach, which has been around since the 1920s, is the idea of morphogenetic (form-shaping) fields. In this model, growing organisms are shaped by fields which are both within and around them, fields which contain, as it were, the form of the organism. […].

Edited from Rupert Sheldrake article on the internet: http://www.sheldrake.org/ Morphic Resonance,

Morphic Resonance, Collective Unconscious and the archetypes Jung thought of the collective unconscious as a collective memory, the collective memory of humanity. He thought that people would be more tuned into members of their own family and race and social and cultural group, but that nevertheless there would be a background resonance from all humanity: a pooled or averaged experience of basic things that all people experience (e.g., maternal behaviour and various social patterns and structures of experience and thought). It would not be a memory from particular persons in the past so much as an average of the basic forms of memory structures; these are the archetypes.

Myth:   Can be understood as a projection of the collective unconscious
Jung laid bare the connection between psychology, spirituality and mythical symbolism. Through comprehension of the archetypical world we can begin to understand the way the spiritual energy manifests itself through humanity. The instincts and archetypes together form the collective unconscious.
The supreme pattern and personalities in archetypes are shaped by the collective human transcendent experience. They have existed from the earliest record of human history.

The Five ages of Man: Some deny that humans sprang from a serpent’s teeth. They say that Earth bore them spontaneously, as the best of her fruits, especially in the soil of Attica, […]
These men were the so-called golden race, subjects of Cronus, [Cronos, Saturn] who lived without cares or labour, eating only acorns, wild fruit, and honey that dripped from the trees, drinking the milk of sheep and goats, never growing old, dancing, and laughing much; death, to them, was no more terrible than sleep. They are all gone now, but their spirits survive as genii of happy music retreats, givers of good fortune, and upholders of justice.
Next came a silver race, eaters of bread, likewise divinely created. The men were utterly subject to their mothers and dared not disobey them, although they might live to be a hundred years old. They were quarrelsome and ignorant, and never sacrificed to the gods but, at least did not make war on one another. Zeus destroyed them all.
Next came a brazen race, who fell like fruits from the ash trees, and were armed with brazen weapons. They ate flesh as well as bread, and delighted in war, being insolent and pitiless men. Black Death has seized them all. 
The fourth race of man was brazen too, but nobler and more generous, being begotten by the gods on mortal mothers. They fought gloriously in the siege of Thebes, the expedition of the Argonauts, and the Trojan War. These became heroes, and dwell in the Elysian Fields.
The fifth race is the present race of iron, unworthy descendents of the fourth. They are degenerate, cruel, unjust, malicious, libidinous, unfilial, treacherous.

Newton’s gravity force formula Newton’s gravity force formula is: The total force between the bodies is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. The gravitational constant is simply an adjustment for units of measurement and is not relevant or necessary to the proof. (F = G * (M1* M2)/D^2, where F is the force between two bodies, G is a gravitational constant, M1 and M2 represent the mass of bodies 1 and 2 respectively, and D is the distance between the bodies.)

Parallel Universe? The bizarre nature of Einstein’s equations suggests that black holes should theoretically lead to parallel universes, i.e. one that is separate from our own. There may be many different ones of these, each slightly different to the one we are presently existing in. This however is still very much only a hypothetical situation.

Perls rejected any notion of an unconscious mind, preferring to think of the personality as a rubber ball floating and turning in the water, so that only one portion is visible at a time. The Gestalt therapist works with the portion that is visible in the context of the moment. So instead of trying to trace a symptom back to some childhood trauma, as is done for example in psychoanalysis, he always asks the person what it is “doing for him” in the here and now.

The persona is the masks, the facades and the roles the individual identifies with. It is a functional complex which has come into existence for reasons of adaptation or necessary convenience, but by no means is it identical with the individuality”. “The persona [..] is a compromise between individual and society as to what a man should appear to be”. The persona is a functional complex Which has come into existence for reasons of Adaptation or necessary convenience, but by no means is it identical with the individuality”

The power spot In dreams Most dreams can be condensed to a single scenery or symbol which has the strongest emotional energy; or there is something in a particular image that puzzles you, and which you are not able to let go of. This is the "power spot" in the dream, and it is likely the part it is the part of the dream it is most important to work with and to integrate.

The power spot in traumas. The "core" of the trauma The “Core” or “Power spot” is that part of the trauma which is “too much"

Dr. Karl Pribram is one of the world’s leading cognitive neuroscientists, and he is viewed as one of the founding fathers of the cognitive revolution in Psychology.  We are fortunate that he has recently moved to the Georgetown community and we are honored that he has accepted an appointment as Distinguished Research Professor in Psychology and Cognitive Science. He will likely be teaching one course each semester through the Psychology Department, and Cognitive Science will cross list his classes. This offers Georgetown students a remarkable opportunity to study with one of the founders and leaders of Cognitive Science. Dr. Karl Pribram’s whole brain theory states that the brain stores information throughout the whole brain. There is not a specific location for a specific memory.

The Law of projection: Anything in the unconscious is projected! C. G. Jung If somebody exhibits a personality trait we ourself harbour unconsciously - and which we like - We like this person. If somebody exhibits a personality trait we ourselves harbour unconsciously - and which we dislike - We dislike that person.

Projection and emotion If there is emotion there is projection . This does not mean that if there is not emotion you agree with what the other does, but if you for example disagree, you will feel compassion, not anger etc.

Projection and learning It is in fact the law of projection that makes Counselling and teaching possible We can only learn from someone what we have projected on them

If we could see through all our projections : “If we could see through all our projections Down to the last traces, Our personality would be extended to Cosmic dimensions”

Q

The Quabalah or tree of life The Quabalah or tree of life is depicted as ten circles, called Sephyros with connecting lines, called paths, and organised in three columns, together appearing almost like a tree. The tree columns represent the tree main nadis, the central Susumna and Ida and Pingala on each side. The ten Sephyros connect to each other in a certain order, depicting how the soul gradually moved from unity with the Divine, and into identification with matter. The Qabalah or the Tree of Life is an ancient Jewish system of spiritual knowledge, maybe even with roots older than that. […] All traditions, cultures and beliefs, like rivers, start from a spring or fountain taking on characteristics that change through time and the layout of the land through which they flow. The Western Tradition sprang from the Qabalah.

Edited from Kate Rheeders: “Qabalah a beginners guide”, p.1

The Qabalah or the Tree of Life A journey of experience. “It is easy to give an explanation of the meaning of the word itself, for its roots is QBL, which means to “receive,” hence the Quabalah is the “received” doctrine, the esoteric side of the scriptures, the Doctrine of the Heart, in contradistinction to the doctrine of the eye, the inner Truth as opposed to the outer form.

The Mysteries of the Quabalah p 55

The Quabalah is the science of God The science of the hierarchy of archetypes That together is describing man. The path represents the movement between each of the archetype, the hero’s journey, describing the ascend to God or the descend to matter; They too are archetypes. The quabalah is the science of God, of the nature of man, and of all the relations which exist between these. […]

Elisabeth Haigh: “The Wisdom of the Tarot” p 20 f

Quantum vacuum The ancient theory of ether* or Akash is coming back to science in the form of “quantum vacuum. Leading theoreticians now conclude that this invisible sub-quantum field, capable of being the ground state of the universe, would be free of matter as well as the effects of gravitation. Since it resembles empty space, they appropriately named it the Quantum Vacuum. However, following more recent discoveries, they were forced to revise their notion of an etheric void in favour of new theories which suggest that The Quantum Vacuum is a highly charged cosmic medium; an energy-filled plenum whose subtle order measurably influences the space-time motion of the material universe. Scientists now agree that it was the Quantum Vacuum which gave birth to the observable universe”

The "remnant" from the day before. Every dream, even very powerful and collective dreams, has a part that links it with specific experiences or moods from the previous day.

Resonance with the cosmos A resonance with the cosmos was experienced in human speech. When there was still an instinctive understanding of these things, in the time of atavistic clairvoyance, clairaudience, and so on when speaking, Man felt himself within the cosmos. When the child learned to speak it was felt how what was experienced in the divine spiritual world before birth, or before conception, gradually evolved out of the being of the child. It may be said that if Man could look through himself inwardly he would have to admit: I am an etheric body, in other words, I am the echo of cosmic vowels; I am a physical body, in other words, the echo of cosmic consonants. Because I stand here on earth, there sounds through my being an echo of all that is said by the signs of the Zodiac; and the life of this echo is my physical body. An echo is formed of all that is said by the planetary spheres and this echo is my etheric body.

Rudolf Steiner

The law of resonance A vibrating object will cause other objects to vibrate if these other objects harbour the same vibration as a potential possibility. The law of resonance explains that a certain vibration will start a similar vibration in objects around it, if these other objects latent harbors the possibility for the same vibration. An example is the two tuning-forks: If you start a big tuning fork on a wooden base in one end of a room, and have a similar tuned big tuning fork on a wooden base (amplifier) somewhere else in the room, the tuning fork that you did not touch will start humming, even if untouched, sparked only by the vibrations from the first tuning fork. In terms of human receptivity, this means that if somebody harbors a quality or problem that we to some degree harbours ourselves, we will “resonate:” with the person, and knowledge of ourselves will thus help us knowing something about the other person.

The Sai Sanjeevini Healing System The Sai Sanjeevini Healing System is made up of: The Sanjeevini Healing Cards: There are over 200 different Sanjeevini healing cards. They are divided into two major categories. Body Part Sanjeevinis (of which there are approximately 50), and Disease Sanjeevinis (of which there are approximately 142). These numbers are approximations because new cards are created periodically. The Sanjeevini Multiplication and Broadcasting Card used for distance healing, and the reproduction/duplication of existing remedies.

Saturn / Chronos It is Saturn/Chronos which differentiates the infinite energy-consciousness of the Supreme Godhead into material form. In its native state, the Absolute is unbound, undifferentiated and eternal; One without a second. In order for the Incomprehensible to become intelligible to itself, it becomes dense, first becoming audible and then visible. It does this through a process of contraction which slows down the vibrations of the infinite consciousness, gradually congealing it into a spatial field containing material forms. It manifests first as Cosmic and Planetary harmonies before reaching a highly specific individuation in the human domain. Through this alchemical process, the Absolute is reduced from its original state of undifferentiated Unity into Form and Multiplicity. This act of contraction is the basis upon which the Greek myths portray Saturn/Chronos as having dismembered his father.

The Shadow The thing a person has no wish to be. The shadow is a person (or an animal) of the same sex which you feel negatively against. The shadow can be known as well as unknown. It can gradually transform into a "GUIDE". There are shadow sides that have nothing to do with the emotions. The shadow is said to be "the Guardian of the Threshold"into the astral. Everybody carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. If the repressed tendencies, the shadow, where obviously evil, there would be no problem whatever. But the shadow is merely somewhat inferior, primitive unadapted, and awkward; not wholly bad. It even contains childish or primitive qualities which would in a way vitalise and embellish human existence.

The Self Jung describes the Self in the following way: The Self is not only the centre, but also the whole circumference which embraces both conscious and unconscious; it is the centre of this totality, just as the ego is the centre of the conscious mind In Jung’s opinion, the highest condition, and the one he knew himself, was one where the ego clearly acknowledged itself to be only relative, a function of the higher centre, the Self. It was Jung’s opinion, at least in his public works, that man is not able to change the level of consciousness towards the Self. For that reason he refused to occupy himself with meditation and higher consciousness.

The Self is individualised Spirit  “The Self is […] the divine essence of man, as distinguished from the ordinary self, which is the human personality or ego. The self is individualised Spirit, whose essential nature is ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new bliss. The self or soul is man’s inner fountainhead of love, wisdom, peace, courage, compassion, and all other divine qualities.

The standard interpretation of quantum physics (The Copenhagen interpretation): Nothing is real unless you look at it, An electron (say) exists only as a wave of probability, called a wave function, which collapses into reality when it is measured, and promptly dissolves into unreality when you stop looking at it. We are no further advanced philosophically, on this picture, than the image of the tree in the quad which disappears when nobody is looking at it.

The “starborn” and the “Earthborn” The “starborn” were highly evolved individuals who had a long development on other planets behind them when they consciously reincarnated on Earth, and who did not forget their contact with cosmos. The “Earth-born” were children of mother Earth and were uncomplicatedly living in accordance with their physical senses. The Genesis in the Bible seems to hint at such events, and it can also be found in the Bhagavad-Gita

Sound affects physical matter Through the pioneering work of Ernst Chladni (1756 - 1829) and Dr. Hans Jenny, it has been shown that sound affects physical matter. Chladni drew a violin bow across the edge of metal plates which were sprinkled with fine sand. Different rates (frequencies) produced certain geometrical patterns. With more modern technology, the Swiss Dr Hans Jenny investigated what happens when sand, fungal spores, dust, water, etc, are vibrated by sound waves. He used crystal oscillators which can maintain an exact frequency, and invented a machine called the tonoscope, which allowed him to view the result of changing the sound in any way.

String-theory and the ancient teaching about the pranava mantra Aum or Om are strikingly similar, both narrow down the essence of existence to vibration. Om! This syllable is the whole world. Its further explanation is: The past, the present, the future – everything is just the word Om. And whatever else that transcends threefold time – that too, is just the word Om.

Mandukya Upanisad, http://www.webcom.com/~gnosis/library/mandu.htm

The Sun Astronomically, speaking, our daytime star, the Sun, is a huge globe of hot gas, about 1.390.000 kilometres in diameter. It is an average star, much bigger than some, much smaller than others. The Sun is 750 times more massive than all the other bodies in the Solar System put together. The gravity such a huge mass creates, is able to keep the planets captive, circling the Sun. A recent theory, still in flight, maintains that the sun’s centre is a “black hole” – that ultimate joke of physics, where matter is born from and disappears into nothing, independent of cause and effect as we know it.

Links between the changes in the sun and earth changes  “Yogananda says that the sun represents the Fatherhood of man; the moon, the Motherhood. He said that at one period of his life he gazed into the sun at sunset every day for two months and that he received tremendous inspirations of Wisdom thereby”.

Edgar Cayce on Sunspots: Then, what are sunspots? A natural consequence of that turmoil which the sons of God on the earth reflect upon same [the Sun]. Thus they [sunspots] oft bring confusion to those who become aware of same. Let not your hearts become troubled; yet believe in God. Then just act like it- to others.” Superstring theory Simply put,

Superstring theory says that all particles and forces are manifestations of different resonances of tiny one-dimensional strings (or possibly membranes) vibrating in ten dimensions. [Latest theories say 11 dimensions]. They’re so small, our most precise machinery is too crude to detect them. To describe what a super string is, Think of a guitar string stretching under tension across the guitar. Depending on how the string is plucked and how much tension is in the string, different musical notes will be created by the string. These musical notes could be said to be excitation modes of that guitar string under tension. In a similar manner, in string theory, the elementary particles we observe in particle accelerators could be thought of as the "musical notes" or excitation modes of elementary strings. In string theory, as in guitar playing, the string must be stretched under tension in order to become excited. However, the strings in string theory are floating in spacetime, they aren’t tied down to a guitar. Nonetheless, they have tension.

From the official string theory website: http://www.superstringtheory.com/basics

Synchronicity: is the phenomenon that makes the use of Astrology, I Ching and Cosmic card and Tarot meaningful. This is a term for events that happens simultaneously or in obvious connection with each other, but where the connection is not cause and effect. Behind synchronicity is probably the same law that lead to the legend of Indiras necklace and now leads scientists to the hologram theories.

 

T

Tarot as stages in the Individuation process Jung described the tarot as archetypes, depicting the stages in the individuation process. Each individual card shows a step in this process, and thus the cards can be used for contemplations on the path of individuation.

The process of individuation can be separated in two halves:

1: The individual and his or hers relation to the outer world; this is solar in its nature, extrovert, active, expansive, positive.

2: The confrontation of the self with its psychological depth. This confrontation is lunar in its nature, introvert, meditating, passive in relation to the physical world.

The Major Arcana Tarot no 10, Wheel of Life marks the transition from one to the other.

Energy-movement and Tarot: The many levels of energy-movement from God to matter will on the astral level be seen as images. These images will have a universal, archetypical content, because they reflect the universalities of what constitutes the human makeup. These universal images of what constitutes the human makeup are what the original 22 major arkanatarot cards in a crude way depict. The illustrations on a major arkana tarot deck are of course an artist’s impression and generalisation of the images, of which each of us have our own inner individualised designs, often showing up in dreams. The energy in the paths, between the various Sephirots in the Tree of Life, is at the same time the basic building blocks leading creation from the unmanifested divine to the physical and vice versa, and so describing a road map for the personal and spiritual development. If we were able to contain the essence of all the paths, altogether, in a consciousness of Oneness (higher consciousness), then the “strings” holding us to the karmic cycles of rebirth would be gone, we would not need a physical body, we would be enlightened.

Time bombs” The core is that part of the trauma which is most important for the individual. "What is it that is toomuch?" The "core" is the most important for the client to be able to contact, describe, and possible to work with. This, what is “too much” may immediately manifest itself as a breakdown or reactive psychosis, or it may remain hidden for shorter or longer time, until something else happens. It is important to be aware, that what may trigger these “time bomb” can be seemingly innocent events!

Top dog and Underdog Perls calls topdog and underdog the two clowns of the personality, constantly acting out their self - torture game beneath the level of conscious awareness. We have a topdog and underdog for each specific conflict, so whenever a conflict is sparked off by some present problem or event in life, the two clowns emerge and start their self - torture game. Both strive for control, and it is a battle to the death, dissipating all the energy which should be used for constructive and positive living.

Transference “An important concept in analytical psychology is transference. It is the projection onto the analyst of feelings and ideas which are derived from introjected figures or objects in the patient’s past, commonly parental figures. The patient repeats and re-enacts the past relationship with the analyst. The transference may be a positive one (falling in love) or a negative one (hostility and hatred). By analysing the transference, unconscious patterns become conscious to the patient. Counter-transference occurs when the analyst projects his or her own unconscious content onto the patient.”

Transpersonal counseling
 Transpersonal experiences involve an expansion or extension of consciousness beyond the usual ego boundaries and beyond the limitations of time and space.
Spiritual experiences is transpersonal in their nature, but may be distinguished from transpersonal work in Spiritual work, the aim is God, in transpersonal work the aim sometimes is experiences.

What is a Trauma?  Anything that drastically exceeds the flexibility of the mind  The less flexibility you have in your mind, the more your life will be filled with traumas “Any break in [people’s] sense of safety and security, or in their ability to understand and manage their psychological state, seems to provoke severe and damaging adjustments.

Tree of Life “Trees” symbolize the bodies of all living things – plants, animals, man – possessing their own distinct type of roots, trunks, and branches with their life-sustaining circulatory and nervous systems. Of all living forms, only man’s body with its unique cerebrospinal centres has the potential of expressing fully God’s cosmic consciousness. The sacred Ashvattha tree (the pipal or holy fig tree associated with worship of the Divine) therefore symbolizes the human body; supreme among other forms of life. Man’s physical-astral-causal body is like an upturned tree, with roots in the hair and brain, and in astral rays from the thousand-petalled lotus, and in causal thought emanations which are nourished by cosmic consciousness. The trunk of the tree of life in man is the physical-astral-causal spine, the astral nadis (channels or rays of life force), and thought emanations of the magnetic causal body. The hair, cranial nerves, medulla, cerebral-astral rays, and causal thought emanations are antennae that draw from the ether life force and cosmic consciousness. Thus man is nourished not only by physical food, but by God’s cosmic energy and His underlying cosmic consciousness.”

The principle of uncertainty: Heisenberg’s famous law of Quantum physic:
The principle of uncertainty:
The more we emphasise one concept on a 
Quantum-physical object, the more uncertain 
The other concept will be.

The unconscious: “Everything that does not come from integrity”

Ungrounded: Psychologically speaking
 Inability to be present and partake in everyday life

Ungrounded Spiritually speaking: Do as you please and lament the consequences
.

Spiritual and or psychological ungroundedness will also show up as physical ungroundedness, cold feet or hands, Lack of balance.

The universe as a whole is in an ongoing cosmic energy-dance. The research of the subatomar world in the 20’Th century has laid bare the inherent dynamic structure in matter. It has shown, that the components making up the atom , the subatomar particles, is dynamic patterns, they do not exist as isolated unities, but only as integrated parts of a unsoluble net of interactions. These interactions includes a constant stream of energy, manifesting as a exchange of particles, a dynamic interchange where particle is created and dies in a constant changing energy-pattern. The interchange between the particles results in the stable structures, that the material world consists of, even though they are not static, but constantly vibrating in rhythmical movements. The universe as a whole is part of perpetual movement and activity in an ongoing cosmic energy-dance.

Venus, sister planet to planet Earth. “The Chaldeans called her Ishtar; the Sumerian called her ‘Virgin Mother, the Lady of Heaven’. To the Greeks she was Aphrodite, goddess of beauty, a sentiment echoed by the Romans who gave her the name ‘Venus’ after their goddess of love

What is a white hole? The equations of general relativity have an interesting mathematical property: they are symmetric in time. That means that you can take any solution to the equations and imagine that time flows backwards rather than forwards, and you’ll get another valid solution to the equations. If you apply this rule to the solution that describes black holes, you get an object known as a white hole. Since a black hole is a region of space from which nothing can escape, the time-reversed version of a black hole is a region of space into which nothing can fall. In fact, just as a black hole can only suck things in, a white hole can only spit things out. White holes are a perfectly valid mathematical solution to the equations of general relativity, but that doesn’t mean that they actually exist in nature. In fact, they almost certainly do not exist, since there’s no way to produce one. (Producing a white hole is just as impossible as destroying a black hole, since the two processes are time-reversals of each other.)

What is a wormhole? The interior of a charged or rotating black hole can "join up" with a corresponding white hole in such a way that you can fall into the black hole and pop out of the white hole. This combination of black and white holes is called a wormhole.

The wrong-wall material From talks held in 1987 “When you look at the popular picture of life in America what the media represents – it is all wrong-wall material. The arts have lost their dynamic and so have become violent. Take television for example. There are only two themes: violence and sex – the primary biological urge of animals. But the spiritual realisations which come to us through these realms of biological experience are totally missed. You have to go to some of the really great poets and novelists of today to find people who recognise these things and they are not on the best-seller list. They feel rootless. They feel that their lives are without meaning. One encounters this all over the place, that is a consequence of having climbed the ladder up against the wrong wall.

A complete zodiac Is found in the spinal cord Each of the [6 chakras, the Crown chakra is not included] has an anterior and a posterior pole so that we have twelve localised points, six on the front side and six on the back, in an ascending and descending order. These twelve localisations are directly related to the twelve signs in the zodiac. Therefore, one can say that a complete zodiac is found in the spinal cord of every individual. In the same way, there exists a relationship between the seven principal planets of the solar system, the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, and the seven chakras. In concrete terms, according to the hour and place of birth, the planets hold a particular position in the sky. They reflect their influence upon each of us in a specific manner which has effect in our chakras and centres of energy.”
