Waking up from the dream of Cartesian-Newtonian science

Waking up from the dream of isolation of Descartes

FYI a really excellent objective essay on Descartes’ relevance to the post-2012 world is here:  http://faculty.frostburg.edu/phil/forum/Descartes.htm

At least a few pioneering progressive minds, mostly in the fields of healing and personal coaching, seem poised to “cross the Rubicon” in their thinking about science.

The existing traditional barrier is Cartesian-Newtonian science’s presumption it is the ONLY valid science.

Once an individual remembers and acknowledges, we use THREE orders of science every day, there’s no turning back to the idea of ONE, and only one science, no turning back to the Lord of the Rings fantasy of “one ring to unite them all.”

The dream of Cartesian-Newtonian science was a control fantasy; in a phrase borrowed from Alexis Carroll, the fantasy of one science “to predict and control” all others and everything.

This reminds me of John-Roger’s remark, “Control is the master addiction.”
The dream is a Matrix of predict and control working like a swiss watch, completely under control of the small “s” ego.

As long as “predict and control” works for you, there’s no need to consider three sciences. Why complicate something already decided to be simple?

Who are the individuals embracing three sciences? I speculate every one of them has spiritual aspirations that feel unsupported in the matrix of Cartesian-Newtonian science.

It may be, without spiritual aspiration, no solution is called for, no escape from the Matrix is called for, no need exists to step outside the consensus about Cartesian-Newtonian science.

Shifting your world view from one science to three is indeed like jumping ship,; as if, jumping off a slowly moving train. It’s a risk; no doubt about it, because the support of group-think will no longer be on your side nor you on the side of the majority. You are more on your own.

If some of this seems reminiscent of themes from Philosophy of Freedom, you would be correct. Changing your own beliefs, raising your own frequency.

If I allow myself to be indoctrinated through authority-based and reward-punishment-based systems; then, I become part of the cabling connections of the network of Cartesian-Newtonian thinkers and their media handmaidens.

Three Sciences is indeed a more active-dynamic conceptual stance than one science. Crowning second-order science as the one-and-only this serves primarily commercial-industrial-corporate interests, not the interests of seekers of freedom in a post-2012 world.

Breaking the trance that “predict and control” is the greatest good, going through the cognitive dissonance of not one but three sciences is challenging.

Once on the other side, the fresh insights and enhanced awareness can be deeply liberating, generating internal hope and good cheer. Much less of a control system is needed to maintain and protect a scheme of three sciences because the system is less fragile, more synergistic, flexible and resilient.

Imagination, creative visualization, feeling-ization are the engines of a more organic, sustainable and deep, conceptual matrix.

If our imagination is running the dream-program of “predict and control,” we are living in someone else’s dream.

Only in Cartesian-Newtonian science are we hopeless wanderers in a cold lifeless, clockwork universe.

Evidence each soul continues on after our physical body expires is overwhelming, for those open to the evidence of Life After Life, et al. As souls, we go on. Cartesian-Newtonian science was just one chapter in a longer novel with a peaceful, happy ending.

These wisdoms are part of the wealth of a three-science system, connection with galactic significance. Cartesian-Newtonian science is more likely to connect us with more material things nice-to-own and a view of the individual as isolated and alone in a cold universe.

If you have the choice, why allow someone else’s belief system or dream to restrict your imagination? Three sciences supports personal creativity in a way some healthy religions did long ago, 500 years ago and more.

Three sciences inspires independence. When a critical mass of people agree the endgame of “predict and control” is no longer a good game, nor a sustainable game, anymore, then the awesome synchronous power of the universe begins to paint a new world into being, more fulfilling ways of living and evolving individually and in tribes.

Warp and woof of a Goethean holistic psychology

warp-woofThe warp and woof of a Goethean science; including, Goethean holistic psychology, was probably visible by 1985 or 1990. My apologies it took us Waldorf weirdos so long to spell this out in more accessible language.

Warp and woof are weaving terms; they indicate the two directions of threads in cloth. When woven together, warp and woof create whole cloth, regardless of the raw material.

Not a precise or rigorous metaphor, “warp and woof” may still clarify a Goethean holistic psychology.

The warp, one major direction-pattern contributing to whole-cloth, is the multiple, stable, logical levels, both physical and non-physical, of brain function.

To grasp the warp of brain function, we have to release the minimalist fantasy that waking brain function is primarily characterized by the triune brain, best characterized for self-healing as reptile brain, flock brain and cognitive brain. That Triune Brain was the primary, leading logical level of brain function was disproved many times by the early 2000s using real-time MRI scanning of live brains thinking and feeling. In use, our physical brain lights up in rather unpredictable ways if you expect it to light up according to the Triune Brain model.

Triune Brain is a valid logical level of brain function AND YET NOT the major, leading, primary logical level of waking brain function.

If one reads enuf Rudolf Steiner, he makes clear the place to look for the major, leading, primary logical level of waking brain function ought to be found in etheric structures of some kind, unknown as of 1925.

To grasp the warp of brain function, we have to release the maximalist fantasy that waking brain function is primarily characterized by electrochemical and/or genetic interactions.

This fantasy fuels Hospital-pharma research and may produce more useful drugs; or at least, create more drugs corporations can promote for sale. However the maximalist fantasy is obfuscation, promoting the endless dark light, Faustian glamour of if only we knew more, had more knowledge, we could understand how our brain works.

The main problem with the maximalist theory of brain function, however conceived, is you can enumerate tens of thousands of electro-chemical-genetic interaction and still fall way short of a convincing picture-explanation of quality thinking, ethical thinking, creative thinking; let alone, Imagination, Inspiration and Intuition.

If one reads Rudolf Steiner and his students, and perceives the quality of their thinking, their efforts make clear intelligence is “where it’s at” nothing less.  Articulating and expanding understanding of intelligence is big.  The theme is also present in Jung and Einstein’s thinking. The quality of thinking in Steiner and his students makes clear the place to look for the major, leading, primary logical level of waking brain function ought to be found in etheric structures of some kind. These structures, quadrants, were uncovered by Bertrand Babinet, the first inkling of the design of the Fractal Psyche, around 1985.

The warp of waking brain function is best-perceived as a convergence of multiple logical levels, perhaps 12, working together, inter-dependently, just like any smart phone appliance or video game console. Some of these logical levels are physical-material, most are in slightly higher frequencies and therefore never showing up in autopsies.

If 12 logical levels inhere in waking brain function, it may make more sense why Michael Talbot was so influential with his book, Holographic Mind (1984, 2013). Our mind is so complex, it requires multiple interfaces, which we see reflected in the visible and hidden interfaces of smart phone and video game console design. Continue reading
