The crisis of our world is not social, religious, or economic. Our crisis is the crisis of consciousness. Our impossibility to feel our core nature and see this nature in every one of us and in all things around us.
This publication is a subjective study of inner ft. outer world experience and represent an alternative study of our civilization strategy. It is about the population’s evolution and mandatory requirements for human life sustainability. The study touches on surveillance through the transformation of consumption-based economics into education-based economics, and how should people, companies, and leaders serve. The study talks about the building of a lifestyle strategy that leads us to the sustainability of the environment around us, and our comfort often called joy and happiness.
The Absurdystan touches economics, education, and people to think about themself through the expression of myself and vice-versa. It is a vision of social engineering influence through Smart Cities and duty to participate in the transformation of mine/our/human mindset via deepening the own mind through philosophy, and psychology, via information technologies, industrial innovation, economics, and education systems, and via mathematics, biology, and physics of matter.
My name is Laco, I am an entrepreneur, husband, dad, and I am the author of this publication. I do this Absurdystan project as part of the long-term roadmap – the research of digital interface between singularity and synergy.
I have spent my life in a balance between creativity and technologies. I made a pretty nice career managing millions of dollar size IT projects for international corporations. Despite I have been always tagged as the “manager”, I always felt more like the “artist”. Artist of interaction – using charisma, analytical and strategical skills to execute my personal, or project needs. I spent about 20 years of professional life in countries of Asia, Arabia, Africa, Russia, and a few European countries.
I grew up with technologies and computers – since the Commodore 64, I have had a huge interest in information technologies, and these days, I pretty well know how computers, software, databases, and the whole 0 and 1 infrastructure work and how elements in digital infrastructure communicate. Despite I grew up in a strong common sense and math logic sphere, I am extremely open-minded to philosophic studies and alternative scenarios of anything in work, or in life.
I have no special education. I just passed an extreme ride of 25 years of bohemian lifestyle by doing things that I loved. Since 1996 when started my “punky” years and a few years of experience with psychedelic drugs. Later passed through a hard-rock musician career – the time of endless party of life. After, I have moved to the corporate business – the time of creative self-organization and grew up to the latest period in professional management on the executive position in an international bank.
Whole my life I have had a controversial meaning about people, or better say, about the human population in general. I have got a chance to see, read, listen and feel enough to think that our physical body is just a biomechanical tool to power our brain that generates a single value of a sense of our being – our experience through creativity. Yes, I think about people from the perspective of the universe, but also I take care of slides of our current variable of reality in which we live our daily lives. Including attention to evolution, inventions, development, science, and our knowledge.
Many studies talk about “how we came to this world” or what are drivers of our existence. Nobody knows for sure the whole story of truth, although we can prove for sure one thing – we continuously evolve. In our model of understanding, we can say that we are evolving from super-stupid to super-smart. By getting an education, by developing technologies, and by constantly growing our physical meaning.
Suddenly, these days we are forgetting our natural and spiritual meaning. We need to change it, otherwise, we are sentenced to death by the system of greed. I am not a visionary of the end of the world. I just know that we are a simple form of life that is just at the beginning of the real intellectually progressed civilization. Usually, when people talk about our civilization, they talk about some static condition. But I don’t think so. It is a continuous process. We are not civilized yet, and most probably we never become fully civilized because we need deeper and much more universal knowledge to become “intelligent”.
When I talk about the intellect, I talk about the continuous process of education and getting universal knowledge. We have many people who are pretty well informed in specialized areas of electricity, chemistry, or any other proficiency. Let’s say people who are pretty well informed in area “A”. But they have no idea about areas of medicine, agriculture, and many other proficiencies. So we can easily say – they are not informed about area “B” at all. And when people talk about civilization, it sounds like we already reached the perfection of knowledge. I think, not at all.
Till the time we have wars, police, jails, fighting, torture, rapes, aggression, hate, fear, stress, or greed, I can assume that we are only at the very early beginning of civilized humans. Only when the world will be united we start the beginning of the civilized community – the education-based community. Right now, we are really far from that.
I am not a utopist or a humanist who wants all the best for all people. Not at all. Although, I believe in a balance of nature, balance of the universe, and instead of complaining or blaming what we are, what we do, and how we serve, I am just trying to do at least something. Maybe it does not make sense, and maybe yes, but for me, it makes sense to at least try.
When people ask me if I want to develop the ideal humanity or the utopia. I just answer – I don’t understand words like ideal humanity, or words like utopia. Nothing can reach ideal conditions except the universe – God itself, but I know we are able to make our life much better than it is now.
I have two visions that stalking me through all my life. One is the vision of a population of our planet that lives more in line with the rules of nature. The second is the research of consciousness and its connection with the knowledge of the universe, the quantum field.
The first is to find a way to start transformation our consumption-based behavior into education-based behavior. You can try to imagine a world where a celebrity on Youtube is not an influencer sitting in a landed Lamborghini, with expensive Rolex watches and all that US dollar show around, but the person that has the real value for humanity. A scientist that found something useful, or an artist that creates music with soul, or an engineer who invented something with global value. Impossible? I don’t think so. In the universe everything is possible. With proper human programming, which we can also call propaganda, there is a lot of space for the realization of every scenario.
The second idea is much more philosophic. It is the research of something that I call ” the perfect algorithm”. The interface between matter and a quantum – the interface between singularity and synergy – the interface between a physical, digital, and spiritual meaning of the sense of being. It is naive, it is crazy, someone can call it science-fiction, although, nobody did refutes the possibility to research this secret that may change our future of communication between people, computers, matter, and antimatter around us.
Don’t be seduced by the appearance of things. A phenomenon that is very relevant to our times. We have a powerful time for a change! It is not about the right momentum of time or place. It is about the present time – our now – is the best time for changes in our way of being, thinking, and functioning in life. In our own lives, because any change, small or global happens only in the head of the single “you”.
We have reached a time where we thought we had everything somehow determined and that we would all be content to continue living our lives in a materialistic concept of comfort. In a permanent comfort zone, constant growth and increasing consumption. Because this is what stimulates us and sets in motion greater flexibility and dynamism and gives us the force of the worldview of the living planet.
This is the right direction for the healing of society and for proper functioning. Because the old structures are beginning to twist and rebel in some way. This is not valid just for political or other social systems, but for every one of us. Before, we thought that now is finally that time, when we would all live happily — standing in the materialistic conception of the comfort zone, constant growth, and consumption. We developed the receiving kind of standard that over-crossed our needs required for the value of life and humans’ value. This over-crossing consumption needs, of course, more and more resources. Do we continue to mine, without the direction of What we want to reach? Every consumption-based element we receive gives us a few minutes of satisfaction, but it does not make us happy with endless joy.
Production of everything we can touch in our life starts with mining. Mining minerals, oil, gas, water, and similar natural resources. On the opposite, the consumption of produced material creates waste that needs other resources to store. This is the chain that has its limits. With our indifferent attitude to our planet Earth, we approached the critical moment of complete contamination and broke sustainability far ago. Right now, humankind is consuming 60% more resources than nature can regenerate. In other words, we need the resources of 1.6 Earths to provide the current level of production and way of life. If the consumption rate does not change, by 2050, we will need the resources of 3 Earths.
According to retrospective calculations, the first time human consumption began to exceed by two days what the planet could reproduce did not occur until 1970. Half a century later, by liquidating ecological resources reserves and accumulating waste, we are now living in debt to the planet for more than four months out of twelve. Despite the fact that by using technologies we are capable to satisfy the production, we still don’t know what to do with waste. We should change this behavior.
With the current political system and managing consumption-driven economic systems, humans (intentionally I do not use the word People) will have huge problems with overpopulation and a much worse problem: this population’s quality. Gaping economic inequalities, rampant ecological destruction, and pervasive political corruption are all results of unbalanced systems relying on each other to remain precariously poised. There is a need to think seriously about re-designing the global economic system to serve all of humanity. But this publication will not pursue that further, leaving it to economic experts, or maybe to social engineers.
A consuming person is lazy. That’s the fact. I am building hope to change people’s thinking by inventing a “real thing.” And as I see the reality and the current standards of information delivery to people, mainly over digital media, this change can only be achieved by the right propaganda. A different kind of propaganda than now, not consumption-driven propaganda but with education-driven propaganda.
Why education-based? I believe in a real correlation between spiritual energy and digital energy. Everything we see and everything around us can be broken down into 1’s and 0’s. Different kinds of energy move from one to the other, with various changing forms. Still, it is always the same energy filling the space and vibrating at a particular frequency. It is necessary to reach this energy in that appropriate condition for humanity, as we live in our variant exclusively in the field of information 0 and 1. It is very likely that with a new approach to knowledge through digital technology and people’s education toward spiritual growth, we will find this moment of unification. Then humanity will be able to work synergistically with the energy that fills all the space around us.
Explaining this in more simple words, I want to turn human thoughts into a form of information. I want to get humanity to develop it, precisely, to grow up to the next level through education and the improvement of thinking. So that there would not be only consumption, as at the current time, but the invention of the transformation of the digitalization of knowledge. We need hundreds, probably more years to reach a certain, let’s say desired level of civilization, but who knows – when we start now – and when we start all, we can see some results even during the life of our generation.
For us to really “get the time and opportunity to live and implement such plans”, we should behave much more sustainably! We should extend the ecological time and, at the same time to improve the life comfort we have achieved now. Then people would quietly and profitably engage in education and reflection on even more efficient development.
Most people have passed through some kind of new initiation in life. By that, I mean a crisis that defies what you knew and what you were. From the rubble of the ensuing collapse, a new “self” is born into a new world.
The changes that happened to me about 10 years ago turned my thinking upside down and somehow gave to me incredible new knowledge. At that time I was an ultra-ambitious man who achieved a remarkable career. I have implemented and managed huge projects. It is clear that when you manage such projects, there is a colossal amount of interaction with people around you. For example, during the 20 years of my professional activity, there were over 5000 people I have communicated or interacted with. Either they were bosses, employees, suppliers, customers, or just foreigners that I met during endless trips. While managing such projects, you often pass many difficult psychological, and political situations, simply situations that hardly impact your mind and cause difficult decision-making actions. Until 2008, I was a very rational person who could visualize 10 to 20 years ahead by analyzing and planning future ideas into the project plan.
But this situation changed me. One might say unexpectedly for me, there was such a “brain breakdown,” and I couldn’t talk for a while. I had a tough meeting, which, by the way, went great. We had some troubles that caused a few million dollars loss and shareholders were pretty angry, screaming, and so on. Simply said, it was for me one of the most difficult three hours in my life by trying to keep them calm. After that meeting, I left Delhi and return by a short flight to Chennai. I felt strange in the airport. Usually, my mind is full of plans, doubts, thoughts, and different scenarios that all the time something analyzing. That time I felt that my mind is empty. Silent. Clean of thoughts, clean of doubts. Empty. Afterward that I went silent for few weeks. I cannot sleep, I cannot eat. I just wake up in the morning, came to the office, left the computer in my office, and sit on the fire-exist stairs in an office building just sitting calm, watching the trees, and did not understand what’s going on.
After few weeks, sitting on the stair, I felt extreme energy that passes through my body and everything became normal. I don’t know what had happened in my head! Crisis forces you to take a new look at life, to reconsider its values, to recognize the very important understanding that change is inevitable. And also, that you always have the opportunity to choose a new direction in life and, having gone through difficulties, to reach another level of development. And whether you like it or not, you will have to face your inner world, full of illusions and conflicts. The outside world cannot change until the inside world changes.
After this happened, I began to wonder how the brain is built and how fragile the nervous system is. Shortly speaking, this situation somehow changed me, and I began to think differently. I don’t know, I can’t explain it yet, but somehow in a different way.
I continued the usual life, continue doing my job, but in India, where, as we know, the practice of meditation is quite widespread. I was often offered by colleagues to try meditation, but somehow I failed. A while later, I got some kind of recording guide from my friends in Delhi (Gurgaon). So one day I was comfortably seated on this hot and sunny rooftop of my flat. I put on my headphones and, not expecting anything at all, tried to meditate according to the instructions I had received. I am a pragmatic person and tried to meditate only because my friends often forced me that it would be good to calm down my stress from work. So, after a year of listening to these recommendations, I’ve tried it. And, to my surprise, it worked! But more than that, I couldn’t believe me because it worked from the very first time!
I felt endless things, knowledge, information! Anyone who has experienced a similar state of mind will understand me. This motivated me to take a course consisting of 30 lectures and “just drift away” into a psychedelic state. I started searching through different sources to understand what meditation is and eventually reached a very familiar topic: the frequency of the brain’s activity during meditation. Since I am a musician and my thinking is analytical, I began to study from the mathematical and analytical point of view what happens in the brain and learned that there is a wide range of frequencies in the brain through which, for example, it is possible to influence people.
Different frequencies are responsible for various emotions, like crying, joy, satisfaction, etc. It sounds crazy, but yes, by simple sound waves I can make you cry or increase the stress in your body, or make you happy – you will not understand how and why, but you will feel that happiness.
I was most interested in one of these frequencies, which the Buddhists call ZEN. It is called differently in different religions, but it’s always the same in the general meaning. One could say that at this frequency, a person can find or discover God. For a while, I have been researching and educating myself and thinking about all this again and again. Yes, there are certain waves that we know how to measure and those that we do not yet know how to measure and that we are not yet able to control. I began to realize that there is some kind of ZEN status or “realization that somehow in some incomprehensible way, through the brain may be, freedom is achieved”. Something similar is described by knowledge encoded in the non-physical realm of being called the Akashic field, Akashic libraries in Vedic knowledge. We are also calling it the Quantum field by the words of modern physics.
Through years devoted to this, I realized that there is a knowledge base of a specific “energy society” or “unified energy-information field of the Universe”. And it looks like this Energy controls everything around us, and by filling space, vibrating at a specific frequency, carries information about all of us! About the past, present and future.
After I spent some time with the topic I have returned back to my usual life, and forget about it. Although, again and again, returns in my mind and raises hundreds of questions. Now, I feel that I am ready to move on. My nervous soul requires me to push it out through me, through my personal obsession of searching the secret – the biggest secret of our civilization, of the universe.
I know, that I am, and we are able to decrypt the secret and find the single source of truth, although I also know that to reach it, we need to change ourselves at the first, starting from myself. I would like to tell the story of changing the way that people serve from consumption to education-based. I would like to tell the story about the optimal government and economics systems based on self-organization principles, also sometimes called anarcho-capitalism. I would like to tell the story of how simple is to change the way that people serve via the simple manipulation method of Overton windows (by that any way we are getting manipulated these days), and finally, I would like to rise up the first notes about the integration API between the Quantum field and the data information of matter.
I give the sacrifice to be tagged – he’s a fool – I have reconciled with it carefully, and I feel the freedom to tell the story without doubts. I feel good, I feel free, I feel blessed to tell the story of how can I come to that a how to realize the transformation, starting from myself.
12 years in Smart Cities I am thinking very differently about the topic. Leaving technologies behind and moving into the most important element of Smart Cities – People! Summarizing, or better say merging the sense of my “Abusrdystan” strategy into a few pages, I would like to describe, discuss and execute the following scenario.
Consciousness is a puzzling phenomenon. We can say my consciousness is the only element of existence I am personally aware of. Through the flow of subjective experiences, I perceive external reality and myself restricted from it. I assume that other human minds—and to some extent non-human minds—experience a similar structure in this eternal moment of “now.” Strangely, however, the subjective itself is very hard to objectify.
The totality of perception, including every memory, is notoriously unreliable and misleading. Consciousness has two sides—something like the inner and outer. To make something possible, for example, communicate, touch, or smell by the outer side of consciousness, we must exert some effort and contact surrounding things. Meantime our inner consciousness is always with us, so it’s not necessary to make anything to make it works. But, we can force effort to express and understand what we have inside. Do that is not so easy and clear things. How, then, should one try to comprehend the fundamental nature of consciousness?
Moreover, is the external world our senses are seemingly reporting to us about really “out there?” The blooming of every human life is different. The stress-less mind is everything that’s needed to the consciousness of the natural flow. When your mind is quiet and calmed down, everything else happens naturally. The inner energy wakes up and starts to work without any effort from your side.
How is known in Dao culture, Chi watch on the consciousness. Staying in the moment of calm, you start to feel the smartness of plants and animals. The silence of wishes and learning this sensitive mechanism by which these wishes are getting materialized. In Dao, this kind of living is called Wei we wei that we can translate as Doing, not doing. Buddha talked about the middle way. Aristoteles described the golden middle as the middle between two extremes as the optimal way of beauty. Not too focused, but also not be lax, but find the ideal balance.
Vedanta, also known as Maya or an illusion – the absence of feelings about the surroundings and understanding it in the form of projection, is created only by our minds. Our minds allow us by a unique system to feel as see and hear the world’s vibrations. The same inner calm does not depend on the outer situation. The faith of the external world created by our mind is always filtered through feelings, and because of this, it always is incomplete. In the core of all feelings exist only a single vibration field.
Same as in the ancient Vedic system, the same now, thinking is only one of the senses. Feeling these feelings simultaneously allows creating the minds based on a single information source. Thinking is just an instrument. One of six feelings, but for some reason, we give it such a high priority that we are identifying ourselves with our thoughts. We are so focused on our thoughts that we are trying to explain the mind as a feeling. We are not that which eyes can see, but that whereby eyes can see. We are not that which we can hear by ears, but that whereby ears can hear. We are not that we can tell by words, but that whereby words can be told. We are not that about which can think the mind, but that whereby the mind can think. It all is the eternal Brahma.
There exists one more state of living when we can connect off from our 3-dimensional world. It is possible during mediation. Vipassana meditation, also called meditation of inner insights, can be defined as self-managed neural plasticity. We accept our reality exactly how it is, how it is at the present moment. We accept it on the deepest level of feelings, at the level of vibrations and energy. Without prejudice, without the impact of thoughts. In the brain, at the deepest level of thinking, with the help of attention, we can create a new type of reality perception. Circumstances and conditions do not matter anymore— only the perception of the consciousness matters. The word meditation in Sanskrit means being free from evaluation, comparison, and all matches. So it’s not about not trying to become someone else, but being ourselves and feeling comfortable with what’s going on at present. To become free from suffering and physical reality, it is necessary to accept it and fully agree on it. As a result, it becomes something inside ourselves. They and you are something inside it. The various mindfulness practices evolve and teach how to be in touch with and accept the world’s variability and diversity. Through mindfulness practices, one can get in touch with oneself and one’s body, manage one’s state, better understand oneself, and explore one’s behavior and emotions. Mindfulness practices train focus, clarity, and equanimity. Concentration is attention management. Clarity is the understanding of what is going on. Equality is the ability to look at everything as if from the outside.
In the middle of 90′, Edward Witten, an American mathematical and theoretical physicist expressed calculations and mathematical models that prove at least an 11-dimensional universe. Moreover, in every one of these dimensions is possible to place an endless volume of worlds. So higher is the volume of dimensions, and higher is the volume of components in these dimensions, so more information is available. In contrast, in the three-dimensional, the volume of information is limited. So that means that if we have x-dimensions around us and everything we do, track, or measure in 4-dimensional logic, our understanding is wrong because the information is incomplete. A hundred years earlier, individual physicists had already stated that consciousness works independently of the brain. Every personality is part of a global informational decision-based structure.
During the last ten years, scientists reached a lot of success in analyzing the human brain. The term neural-plasticity expresses the physical connection between brain neurons that get changed according to thoughts moving through them. The psychologist Donald Hebb found that when two neurons are active simultaneously, their connection gets stronger. When a person is in the state of continuous attention, neurons link with each other, creating our subjective perception of reality. That means that when the mind is full of stress, fear, and negativity, we strengthen connections for a higher volume of similar thoughts. The same goes for the opposite. When we focus our minds on love and happiness, we strengthen this connection. How can we do that when we are surrounded by violence and suffering? Will it be self-deception and acceptance of our wishes as reality? Neural-plasticity is not an understanding of the new age. When we talk about our reality through positive thinking, we are talking about the education of Budha from 2500 years ago.
A set of practices for the full development of all areas of life can include meditation and body practices or training in communication skills with people. For example, under the stimulation of different toxins, people start to see and know thighs that they should not know and see. Later was found that it’s not even necessary to use toxins to stimulate such knowledge. It is enough to execute special breathing methods by that it is possible to bring a person to the state in which he can get a piece of particular information, and he can remember things that did not happen in his own life. This is in controversy of our understanding of the three-dimensional. But, moreover, in the state of hypnosis or clinical death, we see things and the energy how it works, out of our existing limitations of the viewing illusion.
Meditative practices are a good thing. And they could be used for a variety of purposes, both for adults and especially for children. For example, so that children would be more diligent and calm so that their motivation to study would increase; so that it would be easier for them to find a common language with each other, with teachers, with parents. Meditative practices work very well in cases of inclusion. However, it is important to realize that separating the husks from the seeds and sow into the minds of little people only pure grains with a powerful growth potential when it comes to children. By the way, agricultural terms are pretty appropriate in this case. Buddhist meditation bhāvanā, or “mental development,” is where the modern secular (purged of the religious component) mindfulness approach means “cultivation.” In the end, both with children and adults, the task of practice is cultivating positive states of mind. The spiritual mission of parents and educators is to enable and support the realization of children’s dreams. Otherwise, we will be stealing children’s visions and killing their talents.
It seems that it is time to build a new structure for the systematic education of children. And first of all, for this, we adult parents and educators need to start with ourselves! A basic understanding of the mechanisms, regularity, and most importantly, the personal experience must be had. It helps to support ourselves in moments of extremes of emotional waves when we need to remain resilient. And thereby pass it on to the next generation. But while teaching adults is often by their own volition, it’s different with children. We want to “do good” to a person from their earliest years, and we do everything not to miss the moment. However, it is enough to realize that not all practices are appropriate for every child. Imposing is a lousy way to go. Many children find their inner ways to soothe and self-explore on their own and intuitively. Listen, choose your moment, engage in play. Have a great time together!
Brain studies have shown that adults and children have very different areas of the brain that are most active. In children, the brain stem (controlling heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature) and the midbrain (responsible for waking up, appetite/satiety, and sleep) are the most active areas. In adults, the limbic system (emotional reactions, motor activity, sexual behavior) and cerebral cortex (concrete thinking, meaningful and emotionally intense behavior) are the main working areas. Building the structure of connections between neurons is the most important thing. It lays the foundation for later learning, mental health, and behavior. During the first years of life, 700 new neurons are formed every second! If you imagine for a moment the intense work going on in a little person’s brain, the degree of responsibility for how and what practices to offer increases immediately.
The development of attentiveness is based on an evolutionary mechanism. Nature itself has long ago taken care that humans can distinguish the shape, color, volume, and distance of objects around them. Our task is to do no harm and delicately help to develop the skill of attentiveness to more subtle matters – emotions, feelings, states (our own and the other person’s), properties, and the greater things that unite us. Simply put, learn and teach the freedom of the spirit – and the fact that we all have the same conditions – we are one!
“Usually we think parents should raise their children, but sometimes children can also lead parents to enlightenment and help them change,” says Thích Nhất Hạnh, a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk who was ranked third in 2012 list of the 100 most influential spiritual leaders of our time.
If one feels truly free inside, nothing can interfere with one’s creativity and innovation, truly divine attributes. However, I test whole systems where many strict rules restrict people’s creativity. For example, legal and all official systems, professional sports, and, sadly, education. Where all joyful, free and creative potential is chastely set aside and manifested in bad human relationships. We must cultivate a relationship with ourselves and constantly look at ourselves with humane admiration. We came into this world to work miracles. And the free creation of something new, something that was not there before and that is unique, is such a miracle! Every free and conscious act is truly a miracle! It takes a rebellious spirit. It is our spiritual duty! It is the only way we can protect our lives and live as we are meant to live. The energies that govern modern humanity are complexity, vassalage, inertia and dependence, weakness, and fear of being different and changing things. Without quiet but determined rebellion, these frequencies will consume us. So go after your dreams and feelings, trust yourself and life! We will channel the energy in the right direction. Which one? I don’t know. You should know!
What could we do to achieve a world that is fairer, more prosperous, and more respectful of the environment within the next years? In this regard, the Planet Earth itself warns that we are running late, and the question now is whether we still have time to save the planet. I think it’s about time we remembered that the essence of nature is simplicity, and the one of God is simplicity. Man is not a simple essence but a complex one. And this is not because he is a compound of flesh and spirit and consists of many elements and organs, but because he has many needs. His existence and content need many things independent of himself, i.e., are outside of him. This is why we human beings need so many senses to come into contact with all things created, know it, perceive it, and benefit from it. On the other hand, nature makes things as simple as possible simply because it uses the less resistant way to do something with the lowest energy consumption. When we try to watch the system more and more complex, we can come to the core misunderstanding because the answer should be simple. And someone realizes that the world is arranged as it is. The concept of simplicity is comparative and refers to the relationship between different knowledge systems and even considering what worldview system we adhere to.
Sir Roger Penrose is a British mathematician, mathematical physicist, philosopher of science, and Nobel Laureate in Physics who believes that there is some world beyond the senses accessible to us through the intellect, which is not identical to our physical world. From time to time, the connection between the mathematical world, physical objects, and the world of ideas suddenly appears. After analyzing all this, there is a certainty that through the development of education, increasing and unifying knowledge, using the Law of Nature and uniting it with spiritualistic knowledge, there is a way to transform Human Knowledge from the physical level to the digital level to its further use at the highest advanced level. When thinking about the perspective of conscious life, we cannot escape from such questions as how to understand and live in harmony with the Laws of Nature and not to harm the environment from the perspective of nature.
It is well known that absolutely all problems – in relationships, health, career, and creativity – are related to human thinking. And they are caused by energy-informational fields, more precisely by thoughts and emotions, which are subject to the laws of physics. Nowadays, scientists are increasingly entering the sphere of medicine and psychology. In addition to knowledge of the laws of physics, it requires the ability to think logically, to solve complex, almost mathematical problems. Much depends on how many unnecessary beliefs and negative emotions a person has, how strong they are, and how ready he is to work on himself. Thought control is a complex process. In terms of physics, one must learn to emit high-frequency vibrations.
I don’t know if we are ready for significant change. I don’t know if what we already have is just a step of self-organized behavior. Perhaps It is time to start some discussion about the system. Lets’ note it and talk about it without censorship! Blockchain technology, which is widely used, can transform established processes and radically change the way regulators work. The technology can protect the data we have to work with while making it more accessible and transparent. What makes blockchain unique is the immutability of irreversibility that cryptography guarantees, yet it remains an experimental technology – many of the problems of its use have yet to be solved. As can be seen, transparency based on decentralization can bring a huge positive leap in the effective change of the system, starting with a public discussion of all emerging models.
Applying previous points of strategy should automatically transform people’s mindsets. The competition of human values, increasing intuitive perception, and transformation of education should be taking over in society. As mentioned above, it is essential to focus on transforming the strategy of education. In parallel, it will be possible to begin a fundamental change in the consumption system. Try to imagine what changes would have gone through in the first place. The changes will primarily affect advertising. And by starting to promote propaganda aimed at changing consumption, there would have to be an increasing influence of big, centralized business, which would provide greater significant benefits than the collateral disadvantages. So we’re getting closer to smart city enterprises. Look at the fact that behind all this is a ban on advertising consumption! Presumed ideology is directed towards human development and quality of life, based on acquired knowledge rather than consumption policy. In society, the competition of human values and the creation and efficient use of the educational system is taking over. The learning path becomes critical in building a new economy, where the emphasis is not so much on material goods and services as innovative development and intellectual capacity.
The current pandemic has already helped many people. For instance, it helped those undecided about their profession. With experience, one knows which profession is significant for humanity and which is good only at a specific time. The pandemic has changed people’s consciousness, increased intuitive perception, and made it possible to distinguish dishonesty from the truth. It strengthened harmonious relationships in families and destroyed those that were fictitious partnerships. Like a good trainer, the pandemic has made us scan all those who intrude into our personal space uninvited. Most importantly, it has trained our empathy, which now allows us to rebuild this world not only as we see fit, but considering the opinions of others!
Pandemics’ global goal is to change the genetics of the human population. It is realistic to assume there will be a mutation afterward. Not in the form of a change in any external traits, but the form of a change in the world’s perception by the descendants of the survivors. Once introduced into the human body, a virus performs specific work aimed at changing genetics. Humanity evolves through empathy! How can we protect ourselves from epidemics and pandemics in the future? As humans, perfection is available to us as a harmony of the true, the good, and the beautiful. Perfection appears in three projections: to the mind, it is given as objective truth, to the free will as good, to the contemplation as beauty. These three images of the same are first conceived in the loving heart. Because the perfect content is known in the same perfect way, by love. Conscience evaluates thoughts and deeds in terms of proper perfection. A loving heart, creative contemplation, reason, and conscience are essential to a person’s moral immunity.
The growth of cities, which will need to accommodate around 5 billion people by 2030, will be another of the decade’s big environmental challenges. The metropolises of the future will need to be compact, safe, inclusive, ecological, and energy-efficient, with more green spaces, more environmentally friendly buildings, and more sustainable methods of transport, which put the needs of pedestrians above those of traffic.
Build smart cities with attention to people, their life comfort, and greener environment, because it gives the possibility to calm down that means – have time for the above point (1). That is, we are back to the fact that through the proper outer life organization of the emergence of the opportunity to get in more depth and conscious touch with oneself and one’s body, i.e., with the inner world, manage one’s state, better understand oneself, and explore one’s behavior and emotions. For example, imagine that with the help of thought, a person tries to simulate tomorrow’s events before going to sleep. By this practice, it is possible to find out that when solving complex problems, the brain switches off, and after some time, it turns on with a ready solution. Later on, in everyday life and when working on serious scientific problems, it is enough to consciously set ourselves a straightforward task and continue doing other things. This may be work or recreation, sports, or creative activities. After some time, the solution will come practically ready, and it only remains to be comprehended.
What do you think of the following idea, and even if it looks utopian at first glance? Suppose that there will be such radical changes as the disappearance from human life of such concepts as privacy, property, personal transportation, everyday work, and pollution…? Is it possible to realize this? Yes, it is possible.
A new way of life will allow humanity to get rid of such serious problems as climate change, the migration crisis, environmental degradation, unemployment, and urban overpopulation. Likely, city dwellers will not have to pay rent because other people will use the space while the property owner is away. In addition, people will stop going to the stores and waste time because computer algorithms will help select the necessary goods through online ordering. Such statements and the first possible strategies have already been heard from the rostrum of the last sessions of the World Economic Forum. As the Danish Minister of Environment, Ida Auken, aptly put it, “Before, everyone was only looking for entertainment, and people did not want to fill their heads with more complicated questions. At the last moment, however, we realized how to use technology for our benefit and not just to waste time”.
We can find many cases through history where new and groundbreaking technology, or a collection of such technologies, completely changed people’s lives. The occurring shift is often very dramatic, making it for those living before challenging to understand the new generation’s way of thinking and seeing the world. These kinds of dramatic changes in thinking are called singularities. Or, in other words, a phrase initially derived from mathematics and describes a point in which we are incapable of deciphering its exact properties. In this place, the equations no longer make sense. In the context of singularity, it is most common to discuss the technical side of the matter. However, another aspect of the phenomenon is the expansion of consciousness or the “mental shift” – the change from the traditional static worldview to a more dynamic, multidimensional perception of the world.
Synergy relates to a specific place/location in space, which makes possible the existence of all things or, one could say, is the “vessel” of the world. Everything is therefore alike; all things are involved in a kind of togetherness in which all things contain each other. Togetherness embodies the synergy property of self-growth of being. And this synergy corresponds to the point of singularity marking a rupture in any continuity and the presence of a reality of a higher order. I suppose that synergy may be the key to understanding digital and spiritual energy’s symbiosis. Synergy and singularity symbiosis would provide the greatest possible unlocking of humanity’s shared spiritual and digital knowledge potential. Also, I suppose, that’s possible to read the human mind and its connection to the quantum field via electroencephalogram based technology connected to human in a state of open consciousness (“with opened 3rd eye”) So much people will follow previous points, so many options (humans) will be available for the study. Up to the joint (collective) consciousness.
By extending the information-theoretic paradigm, the informational nature of consciousness is uncovered. Scientists and philosophers are opening up to the unspeakable to bridge the chasm between the objective and subjective. As has been suggested by ancient Eastern and shamanic traditions, the nature of consciousness is necessarily universal and primal. Fortunately, the notion of spirituality is creeping back into science. Also, the surprising therapeutic effects of psychedelics are discovered, next to many different planes of being, accessible to pure consciousness. In essence, the human mind is witnessing the most radical paradigm shift in its history. The well-served and previously glorious materialistic scientific worldview yields to a novel scientific conception of subjective consciousness and objective reality—and their unexpected intimate kinship.
So higher is the volume of dimensions, and higher is the volume of components in these dimensions, so more information is available. In contrast, in the three-dimensional, the volume of information is limited. So that means that if we have x-dimensions around us and everything we do, track, or measure in 4-dimensional logic, our understanding is wrong because the information is incomplete.
John Searle, an American philosopher of contemporary times, recognized for his theories of speech acts and consciousness, said that we have been going wrong in science for the last 50 years by watching the materialistic understanding of our world. We still assume that our consciousness is directly connected – or it is part of our brain. We do not accept the theory that consciousness can exist without the brain. It will mean that consciousness is immortal. Although, when we think about this from Vedic scripts or religious science, it is said that the soul is immortal. So, what is inside our heads? It is a 3-dimensional computing system (Fabrique) that operates our 3-dimensional body. The brain manages the functioning of all our organs without the necessity of thinking about them, from blood pressure through the routine but pretty complex mechanical and biochemical processes.
There have been many studies and books written about the workings of the mind. What most of these studies are doing, however, is studying the physical workings of the brain. Science can now tell accurately where some process occurs within the brain but knows practically nothing about what this means. Knowing what regions of the mind light up when we think about some subject is not the same thing as knowing how all of this becomes an image in our mind. If, as the physicists believe, the reality that we live in is a composite of the physical and mental, then we must understand the cognitive side before we can hope to understand that reality. Considering the importance that modern physics now gives to consciousness understanding its nature becomes more urgent.
What is going on in the head of humans and how it works is the question for many scientists in the world.
How neurons are releasing impulses is a long history of deep bio-neural studies. Inside neurons in the human brain work microscopic elements like electric impulses and using neural networks similar to known electricity cable networks, and these elements move via our neural system. So they studied electric impulses and also a system of forming bio-magnetic fields. These bio-magnetic fields in the brain exist, but there are profound studies about a kind of synchronicity between these magnetic fields and the other, even global magnetic fields – in our understanding up to the level of earth bio-magnetic field (read more about Schumann resonance)
Can you believe that Television has its consciousness? No, it has not. Television is just a receiver of information, but the source of sending the data is different. It is a receiver of signal that uses an antenna to receive signal waves “moving” everywhere around us. It looks like the human system works in a very similar manner. So understanding something as own consciousness, “own will,” or in general something “we own” is the most probably mistakenly understanding – and possible only in our current illusion. Our consciousness works like an analog TV but is much more complex.
Modern neurophysiologists have nicely described the map of the human brain. They know precisely what part of the brain manages what part of the human body, what parts of organs, taste, and so on. Even there are specifics per persona, and parts can differentiate. So this device can track the human brain of every patient, and the algorithm can assign the proper role of the brain to the proper zones of human mechanism control.
These zones are possible easy separate. Neuro-surgeons know where one zone ends and where another one starts. For example, where are zones of core stimulations, and where are zones of peripheral stimulations. All this is well known, but nobody can say where and how we borns our thoughts. In which zones we have stored thoughts for the first dating, or remembers of a delicious meal, and into which zone of the brain were stored all the information from years of education and university studies.
Interestingly, our mind cannot distinguish truth from illusion, while the feeling is always authentic, which the mind does not understand. Feelings are deep, whereas thoughts are superficial and subject to everything imaginable, including fashion trends. Feelings come from our hearts, but thoughts attack us in an aggressive sense, and the brain cortex analyzes them with the powerful support of the ego. While on the material plane, the brain, unlike the myocardium, is formed in an incomparably more sophisticated way, electromagnetism, the manifestation of real life, is stronger in the heart. Just compare the EEG frequencies on an EEG and the ECG on an electrocardiogram.
The term electroencephalogram was invented in 1928 by a German psychiatrist Hans Berger. He was able to first-time measure the electric signal from the top layer of the brain. It is easy to imagine that in the future, the communication with the computer will not be operated by keyboard and mouse, but directly with the human brain forced impulses. Although, the development of “human thoughts reading by bio-electric types of equipment, and connection of these thoughts with the computer is just on the beginning. We can’t read human thoughts by computer now. We have to wait a while as development is moving forward, and there will come better technologies. However, I am sure that working on the more sensitive sensors and better algorithms of working with these patterns can open the possibility of reading human thoughts by computer much better. And what’s more, I think we’ll soon be able to read the human mind and its connection to the quantum field via electroencephalogram-based technology connected to humans in the state of open consciousness with opened 3rd eye.
At the beginning was Logos, the Big Bang, the first OM (Aum).
The syllable Aum has variously been associated with concepts of “cosmic sound” or “mystical syllable” or “affirmation to something divine”. Aum symbolically embodies the divine energy and its three main characteristics: creation, preservation, and liberation. Aum is the basic sound of the Universe; chanting it symbolically and physically tunes us into that sound and acknowledges our connection to everything in the world and the Universe.
Based on the Big Bang theory, the physical universe begins from a very small, hot single point, billions of times smaller than you can imagine. We often call this point – a singularity.
It is considered a universal sound, the seed of all words without reference to any specific religion or a god. According to the Big Bang theory, Aum is the cosmic sound that initiated the creation of the Universe. This sacred syllable is not just one sound; it is actually three. Another Om meaning interpretation is “everything and everyone”. Om is said to represent the whole world and its sounds, thus noting our connection to the Universe.
Exploring the sound power can remind us to treat our words as sacred, creative, and divine. What we think, what we say, and what we create. We are powerful creators! May our words, through our conscious use of them regain their transformative power. And may the divine speak through us as we bring more and more awareness to the vibrations that we create with our thoughts and words.
In ancient civilizations, Vedic preceptors told that Nada Brahma is the Universe’s vibration. Kind of a vibration field that’s the root of the spiritual experience and source of knowledge. The same energetic field found the saint people, buddha, mystics, yogis, shamans, priests, and simply said – all those who were open to watch inside themselves. During the whole of our known history, this energy field has been called Akasha, the initial AUM, the diamond network of Indra, the music of Spheres, and many other metaphoric names. This energetic field is the joint root of the sense of all our religions. It is the connection between our inner and outer worlds.
Om or Aum of the Vedas became the sacred word Hum of the Tibetans, Amin of the Moslems, and Amen of the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Jews, and Christians. The syllable has been translated into many different languages, cultures, and religious traditions. Still, the creative and transformative power of the sound remains the same. In the Bible, the word Amen is connected to the beginning of the Universe’s creation: “These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God.”
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” It is a particularly human trait to be curious about our origins and the origins of our Universe. How could so much – the diversity of our planet, the vastness of our solar system, the unknown reaches of space – come from nothing? Spiritual traditions from all over the world have grappled with this question and have recognized the profound role of the Divine Word as the origins of the Universe. If at first there was nothing, the very first thing was a sound vibration, and from there, everything sprang into existence, and the material world was born. Western science is now coming on board: quantum physicists have been studying the role of vibration at the root of matter itself. Nikola Tesla said, “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” The very foundations of our Universe, of matter and thought, appear to lie in sound vibration.
In Buddhist knowledge of Mahayana, which is a group of Buddhist traditions, texts, philosophies, and practices from the beginning of the 3rd century, cosmology was described by theories that are very close to our current ones, proved by the most experienced physicist of the modern era under the term of the quantum field.
Imagine a spider’s net that’s spliced in all directions, and on every part of this net hang millions of dew drops.
In every drop, you can see a mirror of all other drops around it, as well as the net itself, and all is mirroring to the infinity. The network of Indra can be described as a holographic universe where even the smallest part of the Universe can contain the complete picture of the Universe.
As a big fan of Nikola Tesla, I would like to explain one example of him. We heard about Nikola Tesla as a person who invented the 20th century. Tesla opened alternating electricity, and many of his inventions are those that are these days an inseparable part of our everyday life.
Thanks to his interest in Vedic cultures, Tesla was in a unique position that allowed him to understand the relation between West and East knowledge models. The same as other significant inventors, Tesla watched very deep into the mystery of the outer world, but except this, he also watched very deep inside himself, inside his inner world. The same as older preceptors and teachers, Tesla used the term – Akasha to describe ethereal matter that spreads across all things, all around us, and inside us.
Tesla was inspired by Swami Vivekananda, a yogin who brought to the West information about ancient Indian knowledge. In Vedic science, Akasha is called the space of inner space – the space of everything. Space that fills all other elements existing modernly with vibrations. These two “matters” are stainless. Akasha is Jing, Rana is Jang. The modern conception of fractals helps us understand the Akasha, or how scientists call it – the initial substance.
If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration. – Nikola Tesla
The beginning of the 80th and the existence of computers allowed us to visualize and represent by mathematical formulas the templates of Nature. In 1980 mathematician Benua Mandelbrot, by analyzing different mathematical models, levels, and dimensions, invented the term Fractal. Mandelbrot found that when equations repeat, they create an infinitive mass of mathematical or geometrical forms that change the limitation of virtual borders. They are limited but at the same time infinite.
Fractal is a raw geometrical format. When we split fractals into parts, this format repeats in every part like a diminished copy of the main template. By this principle, the format keeps the kind of quality that we can call self-similarity. After this foundation, the fractal of Mandelbrot started to be called the Fingerprint of God. Inside these fractals, we can see the root of the ART OF NATURE.
Suppose we watch the Mandelbrot figure from an appropriate angle. In that case, it will remind us of the Indian god, or better said: Buddha. This figure was named Buddhabrot.
Let’s look at the ancient civilizations’ forms of art and architecture. We will find the association of fractal figures with beauty, illumination, and everything saint.
Fractals, even though they are complicated into infinity, every part of fractal contains the grain (seed) capable of producing the whole picture again and again. Fractals completely changed the point of view of mathematics to understanding the Universe and how the Universe works. With every new level of the fractal expansion is born a new differentiation from the original. The transportation from one fractal to another one creates its neverending changes and transformation. This transformation is called the “Cosmic spiral” – the autonomous intellect of the matrix of time and space.
When our brain recognizes something that evaluates by kind of template – the brain recognizes the kind of matter, focus and we are trying to see the beauty. But to keep them in our consciousness we have to throw out the rest of the fractal.
If we want to connect the fractal with our feelings, we have to slow down its movement. All universe energy is neutral, eternal (neverending), and exits out of the measurement. Our capability of recognizing the art and recognition of templates is the interface between micro-cosmos and macro-cosmos, between the eternal world of waves and the world of tight things that we call matter.
Contemplation means thinking about an action before performing it. In the life of the intellect, ‘contemplation’ refers to thinking profoundly about something. And in the spiritual life, contemplation is a kind of inner vision or seeing, transcendent of the intellect, facilitated through practices such as prayer or meditation.
Considering contemplation as a particular spiritual-mystical state of mind, one must ask oneself what this state is. First of all, it is the immediate embracing of phenomena in an irrational way involving the soul. The mind here sees but does not think, meaning it is presented in its sensitive rather than logical function. The mind becomes a sense, a spiritual vision. Then the mind begins to see what it has not seen before, not ordinary material things, but their inner spiritual-intellectual nature.
Behind matter, it sees substance; in things, it sees their logos-causes; in nature, it sees essences, ideas. As a result, a new, unfamiliar function of the mind appears, in ascesis, meditation and prayer. The capacity for direct vision appears. The basis of ascesis is precisely suppressing the mind’s sensitive and thinking function to awaken it to higher activity. In that sense, the task of contemplation is the restoration, reintegration of the individual in his primary intellectual activity. But the mind is not the last stage or the goal, rather the means of reaching the contemplative peak. Contemplation carries an element of intellectual activity.
“True mysticism,” said Olivier-Maurice Clément, is to discover the extraordinary in the ordinary.
Contemplation is the act of creation. By making borders to inherent thinking, we create the illusion of the existence of material things by giving them labels, meaning, and giving them names.
Philosopher Søren Kierkegaard said: By giving me the name, you deny me. Giving me my name or a label, you reject everything else I potentially can be.
We transport thoughts to matter by giving them names and labels, but at the same time, we create it by recognition of its being. Creativity is our native nature and our natural existence capability. The creation of tight things automatically creates the illusion of time, making the illusion of density in space.
Also, the putting together of disparate things—a falling apple and gravity, an overflowing bathtub, and specific gravity, tells us that creativity needs space to thrive. Also, many people get creative ideas when they let themselves play. We could say the eureka story is a scientific haiku, beautiful and straightforward with a revelatory twist. It’s the essence of an idea. It doesn’t give you any sense of the steps or preparatory stuff, but people love them because it simplifies things and takes away all the hard slogging. It’s an analogy everybody understands. Eureka’s stories are a compression of decades and decades of work into one inspirational moment.
So this thing about changing your perspective — it’s fundamental for humans. We can do this with anything. Let’s play around with the Earth, zoom into the ocean. Let’s have a look at the ocean and view it up close, look at the waves. If we go to the shore, we can kind of smell it, right? We can hear the sound of the waves. We can feel salt on our tongues. So all of these are different perspectives. We can go into the water. We can see the water from the inside. If you can view a structure from the inside, then you learn something about it. That’s somehow the essence of something. So when we do this and take this journey into the ocean, we use our imagination. It’s a requirement for changing your perspective. And this thing about changing perspectives should sound a little bit familiar to all of us because we do it every day. And then it’s called empathy. When I view the world from your perspective, I have empathy for you. If I really, truly understand what the world looks like from your perspective, I am empathetic. Changing your perspective makes your mind more flexible. It makes us open to new things, and it makes us able to understand something.
Albert Einstein was the first who reached the moment of Heureka, Aha, Halleluyah – that empty space is not “nothing” but “something”. Something with specific properties and the existence of space – practically with the unthinkable quantity of energy. Richart Fraiman said that one cubic meter of empty space contains enough power to boil the world’s oceans.
Experienced yoginis and deep meditation practitioners know that being in stillness has incredible power.
Nothing in our world is at rest. Everything is moving, vibrating, and radiating energy at a particular frequency. You and I also emit different vibrations when we experience fear, anger, joy, etc. Your vibration is the energy you broadcast to the outside world, as well as the energy you attract to yourself like a magnet. It turns out that you receive what you send out!
Low vibrations draw to you things you don’t like, bring you discomfort, and take away your energy. In doing so, you don’t enjoy life and feel disappointed. Low vibrations of people or objects around us are said to be of poor quality, as they only characterize the conscious level. We vibrate low when we are angry, nervous, and irritable. These are the frequencies that are characterized by negativity. By the way, all “dead” food (meat) also has low vibrations, while healthy food based on plant ingredients and liquid food have high vibrations. Interesting, isn’t it? What’s good for us and for those around us are high vibrations. For example, love emits a vibration of 150 Hz, but grief only 0.1 Hz. When you vibrate at a high level, your life is filled with positive events, joyful moments; you get what you want. It happens because you are in tune with the energy of the Universe. And this is not a bare assertion, but facts confirmed by special devices during scientific researches.
What kind of person is mindful? If you remember what happened to you yesterday, that’s hardly enough. Mindfulness is more than that. You process not only the information that you see and hear, but you also connect the other senses. You are able to understand and analyze how the world around you acts on you and what you can give it in return. Usually, all esoteric teachings are greeted very coldly by skeptics and lovers of scientific argumentation. But the doctrine of vibrations and their influence on the human body has long gone beyond esotericism – today, it is the most progressive theory of physics, string theory.
In addition to the theory of quantum gravity, this theory was a real breakthrough in physics in the second half of the twentieth century. It states that everything in the world consists not only of protons, neutrons, and electrons but of strings of different sizes and arrangements. The mass of each body is determined by the type and frequency of vibration of these strings. Digging deeper, the theory explains how our Universe came to be without a single energy source, why each proton has a particular mass.
To confirm or disprove this theory, the Hadron Collider was built, as described below. Would such budgets have been spent to determine the veracity of a pseudoscientific theory? What does this have to do with human vibrations? Well, here it becomes more interesting. You and I also vibrate all the time. Everything that moves and interacts with its environment resonates and vibrates. We hear sound vibrations and resonance, say, when we strike a crystal goblet. But even after the sound fades, the body continues to vibrate, but we just don’t notice it. Now imagine how the human body vibrates: blood is constantly running through the blood vessels, the heart is beating, the brain’s neurons transmit signals to the nerve endings, and so on. All of this is movement, and every move creates a resonating effect. As strange as it may sound, all our lives, we vibrate, and there’s no getting away from it. Everything around us also vibrates – but how does vibration affect a person? Although science does not deny the existence of vibration in all human organs, physicists are unlikely to tell us about the ability to control our own vibrations.
Interestingly, the percentage of stress has almost doubled over the last 20-30 years. We can also attribute this to the enormous intensity of life in cities and global industrialization. But what if we look at it from the other side. Again, back to physics. There is the notion of Schumann resonances, showing the frequency of the Earth. The index was discovered in 1986 and shows the stable frequency of the Earth’s vibration in hertz. At the time of its discovery, it was 7.6 Hz and has never changed. The human body emits these vibrations in a relatively calm waking state (7-13 Hz). When we are at the same frequency with the world around us, we feel comfortable and well, and we are less prone to depressive states. But over the last ten years, the Schumann frequency has begun to increase. This suggests that the Universe is evolving, and its frequencies are getting higher. Which means we need to move to the next level, too. Soon evolution will require a transition to the so-called beta frequency, where the brain works clearly and fog-free. This is a new level that will be the key for each of us to understand our problems and the influence of the Universe on our lives.
Suppose we can control our emotions and indirectly change our vibrations. Can we comprehensively control our inner resonance? To answer this, look at the Tibetan monks. To understand a person, they tune in to them and their vibrations; they hold their hands and try to feel their pulse. That’s how you tune in with them, and they will be able to tell you exactly what’s wrong with you. Problems with vibrations are reflected in all areas of life. This includes personal relationships, confidence in yourself and your abilities, success in your career, and creativity. The area with lowered vibrations is often directly related to the areas where you are experiencing problems at the moment or all the time. The problem areas should and can be dealt with by raising a person’s vibration.
You can make experiments by yourself with binaural sounds. Let’s say you’re listening to a sound in your left ear that’s at a frequency of 132 Hertz (Hz). And in your right ear, you’re listening to a sound that’s at a frequency of 121 Hz. Your brain, however, gradually falls into synchrony with the difference — or 11 Hz. Instead of hearing two different tones, you instead hear a tone at 11 Hz (in addition to the two tones given to each ear). Binaural beats are considered auditory illusions. For a binaural beat to work, the two tones have to have frequencies less than 1000 Hz, and the difference between the two tones can’t be more than 30 Hz.
Following some notes of frequencies, you can use for different purposes of your experiments with the brain that you can set up in any of applications on your mobile phone or computer.

Working with one zone or another is possible with the help of so-called vibration keys. Using them, you can consciously influence your body’s vibration level – the higher it is, the more precisely you feel the world around you. Here are a number of tools that are certainly familiar to many people, which help raise your vibration. It’s joy because only you know what gives you joy and pleasure when you “explode” with anticipation. Anything, any action, any activity that gives you joy -the more often you do it, the higher your vibration. It’s music that’s either meditative or that gives you a drive, and there’s music that makes your Soul turn right inside out and open up. Another tool is any positive change, and we need to see and strive for positive change within ourselves.
The following tool to raise the vibrations is the emission of love and kindness, laughter and smiles. When you radiate from the inside out a field of Love, kindness, support, and understanding, all the brightest things in a person are amplified. Unconditional love is the one having the highest vibration! Everyone knows the cleansing power of water. Remember how soothing the sound of a stream, how pleasant it is to watch the rain, and contemplate the magnificent views of bodies of water. Water, as an inseparable element of nature and nature in general, raises our vibration. And it’s impossible to ignore meditation. When we meditate, our brain frequency slows down, and we vibrate in a completely different way.
The vibration is everything. We can translate the meaning of Nada Brahma as Sound of the Universe. As well as we can translate the word Nada as a Sound of vibration and Brahma, the name of God.
Brahma is simultaneously the Universe and also the creator – the same, like an artist and his art = an inseparable synergy. In one of the first notices of ancient India was told that Brahma the creator was sitting on the flower of lotus, opening eyes and the world becomes the composition of matter, and when Brahma closes the eyes, the world leaves the composition of matter.
Meditation practitioners across centuries prove that closing the eyes and moving to the deep level of consciousness exists a kind of field. It is the field of Akasha, or let’s say the kind of notes of Akasha that keeps all the Universe’s information. All the experience of the past, current, and future. Akasha was, is, and will exist forever. From this field, or we can also call it matrices, come to all things, starting by subatomic elements and closing by galaxies, stars, planets, and all life.
Although, we will never see this field in all its beauty because a high volume of vibrations layers this field. One layer is mixed with another one. These vibrations are all the time changing, communicating information with Akasha. For example, trees use the energy of the sun, air, rain, and ground (earth). Energy is moving inside as well outside of this phenomenon that we are calling tree.
When we become quiet, we can see the reality as it is. All inseparable aspects together. Tree, sky and ground, rain, sun, stars, life, death. The same as mountain and valley are inseparable, the same we are inseparable from other people.
In all traditional resources of knowledge and religion, texts keep one join meaning – that everything has something that we call “spirit” or soul. It is one more option trying to say that everything is linked with one, the single element of vibrations.
Exists only one consciousness, one field, and one power that’s moving absolutely through everything. This field does not exist around you – this field exists through you. It exists in the meaning of you itself. You are an important part of the Universe, and you are the eyes through which consciousness sees itself.
When you wake up as consciousness, you will realize that you are getting the experience of yourself in the dreams, and you create everything. Something that we call real life is the same. All and everything is you. Only the One consciousness watches the outer world by every eye, under everything in the space, everything inside and into the smallest element.
Buddha also had one more term for the Logos substance – the Calapas translated as Collapse. It’s the self-sufficiency of the smallest substances (bangs) to born and die trillions of times every second. In this case, the reality is the series of snaps of holographic projection that move fast enough to power the illusion of continuity. When consciousness becomes absolutely quiet, the illusion reveals. It happened because consciousness itself creates this illusion.
In international laboratories of physics of elementary elements searching this field that’s across all things, but instead of searching it inside, they watch outside to the outer world.
In 2013 CERN published that they found the Higgs Boson, also called the element of God. Experiments with the Higgs Boson proved that invisible energetic fields fill the vacuum of space. The big hadron acceleration mechanism in CERN is a 27km long tunnel in which two protons are forced to run against each other at a speed that is very close to the speed of light. Once they reached the maximum speed, they meet and crash. Meantime, scientists watch on these fatal crashes that we can also call the Big Bang simulation.
Standard models cannot describe from where elementary particles get their matter. It looks like that everything is created from vibrations. Still, the vibrating object that creates the root vibration is missing. It looks like there is an invisible dancer in the dark of the Universe who creates the core vibration and all other dancers dancing around this hidden soloist. We watch and try to understand the choreography of the dance, but as of now, it is not possible to see the dancer itself.
The Higgs boson is probably the element of the core material of the Universe, the hearth of matter that we use to understand as responsible for the inexplicable volume of mass and energy expanding our Universe.
But scientists are still far away from opening the mystery of the Universe. Higgs boson foundation creates for us a big secret that opens us to the new Universe, even much bigger and more mystery than we can imagine. Science is getting closer to the border between consciousness and matter. The eye by which we watch the initial field and the eye by which this field watches on us are the same.
One of the first western scientists who started seriously analyzing sound waves was Ernst Chladni in the 18th century. He found that when he sprinkles the sand on the metallic desk and creates vibrations with the violin fiddlestick, the sand automatically organizes itself into concrete geometrics forms. Different vibrations created different forms. Later, Chladni developed the catalog of these figures.
We can easily find many of them in nature, like, for example, the armor of the turtle or pictures on the skin of other animals. The most common and easier to find is on reptiles. Later, in 1960 the American writer Han Jenny extended Chladni’s experiments by using different substances instead of sand and electronic generation of various sound waves.
When you push the simple sinusoid through the plate with water, you will see the waves visualized directly on the water.
With different frequencies, you will see different forms. So higher is the frequency, more complicated forms you can get visualized on the water. By changing only one small parameter as frequency, you are getting significantly different forms.
Water, in general, is a very mystic substance that well amenable to outer impact. Water can receive and absorb the vibration thanks to its high resonance capacities, sensitivity, and inner readiness to resonance. Water naturally reacts to every type of sound wave. Vibrations of water and earth create the extreme mass of plants and animals. It is very interesting to watch how simple vibrations in water can easily remind us of the forms of nature that we see around us in our lives. Often and everywhere.
Suppose we add to the water some other element, for example, cornstarch, and we increase the amplitude. In that case, we can see much more interesting forms with a much more complex effect. Such experiments show that adding a simple addition creates structures with characteristics that look like an alive organism. It’s visible, it’s moving and changing the form. Maybe, by doing this experiment, we can physically see the basic life principles. Isn’t it?
Moving principles of the Universe are described in every of the world’s religions notes, described by words that express understanding of these principles by people for the current historical period of time. Also, we can say – based on their current intellectual and creativity capabilities.
In the language of Inka, the word “human body” sounds like Alpaka Masca, which meaning is “soulful earth”. In Kabala, the Judaism mystic knowledge they are telling about the divine name of god – a name that cannot be pronounced. It cannot be pronounced because it is a vibration that exists everywhere. In every word, in all matter. This “holy word” presents absolutely everything.
How can I define myself? How can I be aware of my individuality? Only in relation to something else, something that is not me. I can become aware of myself only in regard to “You” and “Him. In the reciprocal communication within this triangle – I, You, and Him – my identity as an individual are revealed. That is how it is possible to point to the trinity of human communication and self-awareness.
The figure of the triangle is the simplest format that can exist in 3D. We must have at least four points (dots) for it to be manageable by physical reality. By making a triangle in 3D, we will get the form of the tetrahedron, and it is good to remember that only the triangle is the most stable and self-stabilized figure.
In Bible, the word tetragrammaton is often used for the imagination of a particular expression of God. It was used when they wanted to tell about God, in the unique name of God – Logos, or about the initial word. It is the name of the Creator of all things, including all kinds of forms existing in the world as point, line, surface, cube. The mystical power of the unpronounceable name of God, encoded in the tetragrammaton, has been actively used for centuries in folk tales, literature, and art. A widespread Jewish folk legend, originating in Prague, tells of an artificial man (“golem”) created from clay to perform various dirty jobs, challenging assignments of importance to the Jewish community using timely intervention and exposure. After completing his task, the golem turns to ashes. Folk legend credits the golem’s creation to the famous Talmudist and Kabbalist chief rabbi of Prague, Maharal Yehuda Ben Bezalel, Rabbi Loew Maharal of Prague, who brought the statue to life by putting a tetragrammaton in its mouth.
The ancient civilizations knew that at the root of the existence of the Universe are the first forms and basic elements containing the trilateral element. From this form, nature starts moving in the direction of equilibrium (balance) – to Shiva. But at the same time, the form has one more fundamental moving direction to change – to Shakti.
In Bible and other religious notes, it is told that at the beginning was “the word”, although in the original texts was use the word Logos. A Greek philosopher Heraclid who lived about 500 years before Christ, described Logos as fundamentally impossible to understand. The ancient civilizations knew that in the root of existence of the measure, the source of all repetitions, models, and forms.
Later, another scientist explained his words as God’s moving principle that appears across all Universe. In sophism, they are telling that Logos is everywhere and in everything. It this exactly that all unmanifested become manifested. In Hindu traditions, Shiva Nataraja means the lord of the dance. All universe dancing by Shiva’s beating to the drum. Everything is suffocated by pulsation. As long as Shiva is dancing, the world can change and evolute. On the opposite, the world collapse into nothing.
Shiva represents our consciousness, and Shakti is the matter of the world. While Shiva stays in meditation, Shakti is trying to force him to make him dance. The same as Jing and Jang, the same as dancer and dance, the same as artist and art. They exist like the united ONE.
Logos can also be explained as the Manifest of Truth. That one who understands the Logos understand the Truth. There exist many hidden layers in the human world because Akasha created a mass of complicated structures hiding the root of itself, playing the game of hidden god for millions of years (for our civilization, it is, of course, only a few thousand years). During that time, we completely forgot (removed the necessity) that something exists and that we need to find it.
In Buddhism, they are teaching their students to understand the Logos directly inside themself. Using meditation, they are joining the field inside them. When you are analyzing the inner world, you start to see much more thin feelings and energy.
As your brain becomes more concentrated and focused, through the direct realization of Annika, and by impermanence level of existence, the person becomes free from the connection of outer forms of disturbance. When we realize that only a single vibration field of operations joins the root of all religions, we can easily say that my religion, my initial OM, or my quantum field.
Entering another dimension through perfect prayer, meditation, or creativity is an essential process of connecting the emotional and mental aspects of the human being. This phenomenon can be explained through a universal development paradigm. According to it, the development of human evolutionary transformations reveals a movement from the right hemisphere to the left. That is, from man’s awareness of merging with the surrounding environment to the signal of man’s self-awareness. And from there to hemispheric synthesis, which paradoxically combines definite and abstract, polysemantic right-hemispheric and unambiguous left-hemispheric strategies of cognition.
This leads to the crystallization of the paradoxical (dialectical, creative) way of perceiving and understanding the world, as well as generates a prayer-meditative state. It is the perfect type of life activity: in the state of meditation, according to encephalographic research, functional synchronization of hemispheres is observed. In other words, the hemispheres of the human brain act as a single whole.
In the Buddhist tradition, Bodhisattva was the first person who succeeded in waking up to the nature of Buddha. Bodhisattva gives an answer to help wake up to all beings in the Universe by understanding that exists only ONE consciousness.
To wake up the human real “Me”, the person must also wake up every being in the Universe. There are an endless amount of alive beings in the Universe, and I give the sacrifice to wake them all up. My limitations are inexhaustible, and I give my power to create them all. Dharma is unrecognizable, and I make a sacrifice to know her. The road of waking up is unreachable, and I make the sacrifice to reach it!
Platon, at his time, mysteriously touches the existence of the Golden key that unites all mysteries of the Universe. We will feel this Golden Key in the results of our all-life analysis.
The Golden Key is the symbol of understanding the Logos – the root of the initial AUM. We can even say that, most probably, the Golden Key is the brain of God. With our limited feelings, we can view only the outer movement of the hidden mechanisms of self-similarity. The origin of this god-full symmetry is the biggest mystery of all of our beings.
Many monumental scientists and philosophers like Pythagoras, Kepler, Da Vinci, Tesla, or Einstein came to the closest level of secret.
Einstein said that the most beautiful that we can experience is the feeling of secret that’s the essence of any genuine art and science. The person who never felt this feeling and doesn’t know to stop for a while and take thought – is seized by the plain delights is similar to a zombie, and his eyes are closed.
We equal the position of small children sitting in the vast library full of books in all languages. Children know that someone wrote all these books, but they don’t know in what meaning these books were written, and they don’t understand the language in these books. Children somehow suspect about the availability of mystery kind of the order that organized these books, but they have no idea about that order. We equal exactly to this position. The meaning applies even to the most intelligent person on the planet in understanding the relationship between the Human and God.
We see that Universe works by unbelievable mechanisms and obeys particular laws. Our limited mind is capable of comprehending this mysterious power that’s moving stars’ constellations. Every awakened scientist watching deeply inside to the inner Universe, the same, every mystic watching deeply inside himself, at the final results they face to face always the same. The initial spiral.
Spiral was the main symbol in the world for thousands of years. We can find thousands of ancient spirals in every part of the world, on every continent. This symbol was used by practically all civilizations and symbolized expansion and focused cosmic energy concentrated in the sun and sky (heaven). The spiral form is the mirroring reflection of the macro-cosmos – the self-expanding Universe.
Spiral is the energetical source, and it is also the initial matter. The first neolithic spirals were found 5000 years ago in Ireland. They are 500 years older than Egyptian pyramids. They are maybe even more mysterious for modern observers than pyramids.
Spiral relates to that time of human history when people lived in harmony with nature, earth cycles, and spirals of nature. That time when people identified themselves much less with their minds. We understand the spiral like a turning moment of the Universe. As a Prahna, or creation power turning the Akasha in the continuum of rigid forms.
We can find spirals in all levels of micro and macro-cosmos. From spiral in galactic to underwater systems and weather systems. From spirals of flowing water in your bath to the organization of your DNA. And, to spirals of feelings of your personal energy.
The initial spiral – it is not an “Idea”, but the most probable something, that enables to exist to all possible “variables” and “ideas”. We can find different types of spirals in a variety of natural forms. For example, those clear spirals can be seen on snails, spider nets, beehives, or in the underwater life on corals and billions of skeletons of mussels.
Many of the spirals in nature look logarithmic, or better say, expanding spirals. Their sections are exponentially growing from the center of the spiral. A self-similar logarithmic spiral, the same as the network of Indra, is a hologram and can be characterized that every part of it is a reflection of the whole, of the “single”.
2400 years ago, Platon said that continuous geometric proportions are the most intelligent cosmic formations. Connection with the golden ratio, also often called the proportion of God, is one of nature’s deepest mysteries. The golden ratio can be explained by the sum of A+B.
It is the ratio of a line segment cut into two pieces of different lengths such that the ratio of the whole segment to that of the longer segment is equal to the ratio of the longer segment to the shorter segment.
The Golden Ratio (phi = φ) is often called The Most Beautiful Number In The Universe. The reason φ is so extraordinary is that it can be visualized almost everywhere, starting from geometry to the human body itself.
Platon said that all spirits of the Universe are linked with a single harmonic resonance. This template is possible to see everywhere in the Universe, in our world, in nature. Watching the usual things of nature like okra, broccoli, salads, or watching the stars or galaxies, we can see logarithmic and archetypal geometric models everywhere.
Even our Galactica, the Milky Way, has several spirals that are logarithmic spirals with an expansion angle of about 12 degrees every subsequent round of the spiral. So higher is the step of the spiral, more massive is its rotation. We can nicely see this effect in a slow-motion video with growing vegetables. Watching the growing plant, we can see the dance of the expansion of the spiral.
The golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral that’s expanding and turning in the principle of the golden ratio.
The golden ratio is a particular mathematical dependence that we, again and again, see in the core of nature. We call this template Fibonacci or Fibonacci progress. Fibonacci extends by the principle that every subsequent number is the sum of two previous numbers.
Mathematician and astronomer Johannes Kepler found that self-similarity of spirals we can view on leaves, stones of plants, even in the organization of leaves of every flower in the world. Leonardo Da Vinci also recognized that space that consumes the leaves of growing plants moving up in spirals. Those models are called templates of Filotaksis, or the templates of the vegetable leaves.
The Filotaksis principle is visible everywhere in self-organized structures, including our DNA. From trees, cactuses, and plants to flowers, pinecones. Look around yourself, and you will find these structures everywhere.
We can find the templates and logic across all food-chain structures and all the living creatures. From the simplest organism like seaweeds and they’re the most available type – phytoplankton – unicellular organisms that are the first elements of food-chain and give the energy to numerous beings of all food-chain.
What kind of mathematical knowledge do you need to become a sunflower or a bee? Nature does not consult with the ministry of something to create the broccoli flower. In nature, structuring is happening automatically. In the area of technologies, scientists use the term “self-organization” to describe how complex structures are formed in the hexagonal phases of DNA. In nanotechnology engineering, the carbon pipes are also working with self-organized analogic materials to operate with data. Again and again, nature creates a similar type of geometry without difficulties and automatically. Without a calculator, without computers, without mathematics. Nature is accurate and very effective.
Every form in the Universe, every physical thing, every matter, everything has its form for only one reason. It is the most effective form of existence with the lowest requirements for energy. The Universe also has a structure and use the most effective form for every of its part. These structures are also the most effective and stable system for creating architectural elements, like geodetic coupons or pyramids.
Logarithmic spiral gives plants the ability to maximally open themselves to be found by bugs, securing open access to sun rays and rain.
We can see the spiral dance of Akasha in the world of materialistic forms and linked with our ability to see the beauty and symmetry in nature. Somehow we can understand the structure behind it.
Goethe said that the beauty of art is the possibility to replicate things in the form of using the hidden secrets of nature that, on the other side, will stay hidden from us forever.
In the west, civilizations were not applied to focus on the knowledge about the templates of nature. In ancient China, this knowledge was known as “Li“. Li explains the existing order and structure of Nature. We cannot watch this structure as something static, frozen, or unchangeable. It is very similar to a mosaic created by all existing beings.
The structure is in the arteria of leaves, in the picture of the turtle armor and stones. The alive picture is the expression of nature – the secret language of the art of nature. For example, “labyrinth” is one of the many templates of Li. We can find him in the structure of corals, mushrooms, cabbage, or the human brain structure.
The cellular structure is one more example of the templates of Li. We know thousands of different structures, but they all have an analogical structure depending on their functionality. It is very easy to get hypnotized by the beauty and the dance of these structures. But, the most important is that what looks like absolutely every archetypical form is somehow intertwined into the textures of nature.
There is one more structure in the tree of Li. Archetipic models that we can find in all levels and all masses of fractals. Like in storms, ice, tree roots, and crowns. For example, we can watch the computer simulation that we know under the naming “the Age of Millenium.” This simulation shows the placement of the empty matter in the organized Universe. It was created by Max PLank in Germany. Dark matter is what we earlier called “empty space.” It is similar to the invisible neural system that is moving through the Universe.
The Universe’s structure looks like a giant Brain. This brain is thinking all the time by using the dark and hidden energy that is in the very early stage of understanding by modern scientists. The network expresses the ability to find an endless quantity of energy. Meantime giving the power to bang and develop itself.
One very important and much more interesting fact is that if we give nature some appropriate conditions, it automatically creates new tree structures. Thus, nature is the machine (engine) creating this beauty. Let’s think about it, or better say, let’s imagine it in the form of using electricity to grow trees of silver crystals. The crystal forms grow on the aluminum cathode in the form of electro-deposited ions with the help of silver–nitrate solution. The creation of crystal forms is automated. We can see on a physical experiment the creation of the art of nature.
In this meaning, everything in nature is self-organized. So higher is the electricity amplitude that we give to the experiment, the more results of crystals creation become even more obvious.
We can’t see all this in real-time, but it’s possible to see the experiment using slow-motion effects. In real-time, in our real point of view, our understanding of time and space. Similarly, it looks inside our bodies. In every aspect of the human body, we can find tree-like structures as well. For example, it is a well-known neural system in western medicine. In Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic, and Tibetian medicine, it is known as energetic channels that are the most important components to understand how our organism works.
The energetic channels of Nadia look like the tree. Post-mortal expertise cannot analyze the chakras and Nadia, but it does not mean they don’t exist. To get them to know, you will need to use a very sensitive instrument – your mind. In the beginning, you have to learn how to calm down your own mind. After calming down the mind and thoughts, you can, for the first time, see everything inside of you. In relation to the theory of electricity, we can explain it by Aum laws – the less resistance you have in-line, the easier is energy flowing through the line.
When working on developing the mind’s calmness by using mediation, it creates (or approaches) the state of zero resistance in the body. Inside this energy, or also in Vedic knowledge called Prana, is our inner life. What do you feel when you transfer your consciousness inside the body? As the result of transformation training, the thinnest channels of Nadia will start transferring the Prahna through Chakras more and more of Prana energy. When we consciously allow energy to move through us, our electro–canvas becomes stronger and stronger. When the energy of Prana is transferred by a non-resistant body, the flow becomes strong, and our physical connection blooms up.
In the brain and neural system area, the wiring scheme repeats and concentrates your attention inside yourself. With that decreasing resistance of the wire, we grow up energetic power that naturally transforms into spiral types of energetic movement inside our mind.
In Daoism, the symbol of Jing-Jang is describing the connection between spiral types of powers of nature. Jing and Jang are not two nor a simple one. The ancient concept understands Hara as a spiral swirl. Jing and Jang is an energetic center located in your belly, a bit lower than your belly button. Hara represents the sea, or better say, the endless ocean of energy. In many Asian arts of a fight, the soldier with the strong Hara cannot beat. For better imagination, in the tradition of Samurais, one of the forms of ritual suicide is Hara-Kiri that means cut own Hara and by this cut off your energetic channels Nadia.
Moving and balance from this center make a remarkable effect in relation to the earth’s gravitational force that you can see not only in fighting art but also in the position of the professional golf players, ballerinas, or dervishes, African dancers, Australian mystics, and many more real-life situation examples. It is turning to the one side that’s part of the Hara. The calm is similar to the eye of a hurricane or an intuitive connection with a single source of energy.
The person with the well-being Hara is connected to the Earth and intuitive wisdom is able to unite all universe beings. Hara is the center of our spiral, of our aura, of our Universe, and our neural system. It is the connector of the source of the Universe’s energy. It is exactly that place where we feel the love – the situation that we call butterflies in the belly when we feel love to you opposite substance, love to yourself, love in the entire Universe.
Try to ask bees about it as they still do not rear to love. They have a special connection with the source. As a part of a symbiotic relationship, they help to bloom beauty and diversity. Bees are the connection interface between the world of micro-cosmos and the world of macro-cosmos. Exist only one hearth. You can call it by a higher intelligence, or an open mind that’s connecting everything. The open brain of beehive sends its wishes to the entire world to force them to show. In nature, all creatures know how to exist in unison, to move in the same breath and in the same direction. All animals, birds, bugs, fishes; all know this rule naturally.
Although, not all of them give benefits to each other. For example, grasshoppers can eat everything on their trip. They don’t have the ability of choice, except to serve similar to grasshoppers. They will never collect the honey or file off flowers. The behavior of grasshoppers is unchangeable.
Human behavior is different – we can always choose. Either to live like a bee or live like a grasshopper. We are free to choose and free to manipulate with a model of our relationship with the outer world. We can live in symbiosis with the Universe and nature or live like parasites.
These days we are trying to understand the spiral by the rational mind. Still, by limiting our creativity by the cultural system (political, economic), we never think about what is connecting us with the spiral of life. We have always been linked to this spiral.
The process of thinking created the illusion of separateness from our personalities. Thinking creates separation and defines borders. So more we identify ourselves with our thoughts, the more we are moving away from the source. Ancient cultures were much less thinking, and their personal way was much closer with the native spiral.
In ancient India, the Kundalini represents the personal energy moving through the spine bone (spinal cord) by spiral similar to snake. In the ancient Indian yoga tradition, the inner world of people as compared with the culture of Hara to keep in the balance of spiral powers with the silence of your alive consciousness. We need to become in balance with our evolution potential. We were created to evolute into unique, multifaceted beings.
Ida – the woman, also called the moon channel, is connected to the right part of the brain. Pingala – the man, also called the sun channel, is connected to the left part of the brain. When these two channels become in balance, the energy starts to move up through the spine through the third channel Sushumna which is in the center of the spine – the spinal cord. The balance activates all chakras and opens the evolution potential.
The word Chakra is translated from the ancient Sanskrit and means “returning wheel”. Kundalini is nothing less than the initial spiral that’s dancing inside our existence. It is a different energy type, much different from our current understanding of energy, as a physical/electrical power. It is a bridge from the source of matter into the thinnest channels of energy. We are that bridge. Our brain is the bridge.
Kundalini is the energy that can be forced by will, effort, or friction. It is analogous to a growing tree. Like good gardeners, all we can do for the vegetable is to prepare soil, proper conditions and allow nature to go by its way. If we force the flower to bloom faster, we will kill it. It is simply not possible. It grows by its own intellect, with its own self-organization.
The egoism of the mind and the focus on the outer world is disturbing our native inner vibration of nature. When consciousness concentrates into the inner world, it starts to shine, similar to the sun shining. The inner lotus flower begins to grow and bloom. When Kundalini is born, the consciousness begins to see the network, the spiral, and everything of the inner and outer structure. Spiral is the connection interface between our inner and outer world.
Before the foundation of writing by the west civilizations, knowledge and spirituality were not separated. On the contrary, in the knowledge of ancient traditions, the outer research of knowledge and certainties was in balance with the inner feelings of impermanence and intuitive understanding of the necessity of spiritual growth.
When the knowledge and mind-based approach became dominant, our system started fragmentation with the extension of information volume. Moreover, the deepening of specialization caused that only a few people could see and understand the complete picture of the creation and intuitively feel the aesthetics of the single system.
Most of the people were not interested anymore in the value and scalability of the process of thinking. Ancient knowledge was hidden in the most visible place – inside us. But we are too busy with our minds to be able to recognize this knowledge. This forgotten wisdom is the path to developing the balance between inner and outer, between Jing and Jang, between spiral changing and calm in the center of our existence.
Legends tell the story about Asclepius, the son of Apollon, where they call him the god of medicine and how his wisdom and healing knowledge were unsurpassed. Even more, legends talk that Asclepius opens the secret of life and death. In the ancient healing temples of Asclepius, the power of the original spiral was a symbol as a wand of Asclepius.
The same, Hypocratus was called the father of medicine. Bringing the oath to him is generally accepted as a moral debt of every doctor and every person in the medical profession. The first time that the oath was used was during the education in the temple of Asclepius. As of now, this symbol is of our evolution energy in the form of the logotype of the American Association of medicine and many other world medicine organizations.
In Egyptian iconography, the snake and birds impress the duality of the people’s nature. The snake is the symbol of the evolution energy of the world, and the flying bird is the symbol of awakened and concentrated consciousness as the space of Akasha.
The awakened energy of gods and pharaohs was expressed in the form of a Kundalini snake moving up over the spine and ending between eyes, creating the eye of Ajna Chakra that’s often called also as the eye of Horus. In Indian tradition, the third eye is the goddess connection between the spirit; it’s called Bindi.
The mask of Tutankhamon is the typical example that demonstrates a single expression of snake and bird.
In the tradition of Mays and Aztecs also joining elements into the one divinity calling Kukulkana. The snake with wings symbol defines the awakened conscious or awakened energy of Kundalini. In ancient cultures, it was accepted that awakened consciousness is the alive expression of the god. It was again generally accepted that the snake’s energy would return at the end of time.
We can also find these symbols among Christian ones, although these symbols are encrypted here much more profound than in Indian and ancient cultures. The sense is similar – above Christ’s head is often the white pigeon representing the holy spirit, the same as the Kundalini Shakti that’s moving upper the sixth chakra and higher.
In Evangelium of Joannah, it was told that Moisei put up the snake in the desert – the same should the son of a human be lifted up. Both Jesus and Moisei woke up their energy of Kundalini as the result of consciousness being opposite the conscious power of snake managing the human wishes.
Jesus spent 40 days and 40 nights in the desert and was tempted by satan. The same Budha was tempted by Marra when he was sitting under the tree of knowledge and reaching consciousness. Both – Jesus and Budha turned from human wishes and mundane pleasures. In both of these stories demon is the symbol of the own dependence.
When we deeply analyze the story about Adam and Eva in the Vedic and Egyptian cultures, we will find that the snake is securing the tree of life of kundalini. The apple represents the temptation of outer world feelings disturbing us from the inner world – from the tree of inner knowledge.
The tree symbolizes the network of Nadia – the energetic meridians inside us that looks like tree-like structures inside the whole of our body. In our egoistic research of outer pleasure, we cut ourselves from the knowledge about the inner world, from our connection with the Akasha, and the knowledge of the source – the Brahma.
A very similar, almost the same historical myth about dragons can be traced as a metaphor of inner energy. The Chinese culture symbolizes happiness. Like Egyptian pharaohs, the Chinese emperors who woke up their evolution energies portrayed them as a snake with wings or a dragon.
The royal palace of the Jade Emperor, also called the Palace of Heavenly Purity, represents the harmony of balance similar to the balance of Ida and Pingala, or Jing and Jang. Balance awaking pineal gland, or in the culture of Dao – the highest Tian Dian.
Nature is full of different mechanisms enabling us to view the light. For example, the sea hedgehog represents that enable as one big eye. Thus, the sea hedgehog sees the reflection of light around himself and understands the terrain around him. Another example, iguanas and other reptiles use the parietal eye to see predators from the sky. It is the pineal object positioned on the upper part of the head.
The hypophysis or pituitary gland is a neuroendocrine organ that regulates growth, lactation, reproduction, metabolism, and stress response. The hypophysis has two parts, the adenohypophysis, and the neurohypophysis, and the neurohypophysis connects to the hypothalamus through the infundibulum.
The human pineal object is a small endocrine gland that helps to regulate the structure of dreams and cheerfulness. Even though hidden deep inside the head, the pineal gland is very feeling-full to the light. Its primary function is to convert nerve signals about external light from the retina and produce many important hormones such as melatonin, serotonin, histamine, and noradrenaline. Healthy functioning of the organ during childhood ensures a child’s intellectual development and ability to learn.
Scientists have found that in childhood, the gland has a jelly-like structure. Over time, due to improper nutrition, exposure to toxins in the environment, the stress of modern life, and the foods we eat that are full of pesticides, preservatives, and chemicals, the pineal gland calcifies and eventually ceases to function as it should. For example, the fluoride present in most toothpaste and chlorine from tap water is quite toxic to the pineal gland. Its action is also inhibited by the electromagnetic fields emitted by such devices as cell phones. By the way, there are still tribes in the modern world who live in isolation, away from civilization. It is not uncommon that their representatives have such superpowers, which seem unbelievable to us. These people eat mostly plant food without thermal processing. I assume that following this information, everyone has some food for thought.
Рineal gland is considered to be the center of coordination of the man’s supernatural abilities. And also, this gland was privileged to appear in ancient philosophical writings, in René Descartes’ Treatise on Man, published in 1664. In it, the philosopher and mathematician said that the area of the pineal gland or the third eye is the interface between consciousness and matter. Many ancient healers believed this pea-sized part of the brain controls the ability to read other people’s thoughts, psychic skills, the ability to heal from somatic diseases, and even slow down physiological aging processes.
In recent years, the interest in the study of the pineal gland is increasing. It can be explained by its ability to produce melatonin, considered one of the factors regulating biorhythms. Also, the other side of research of this gland is quite interesting, namely the neuroendocrine mediation with hormonal, neurotransmitter activity.
Modern studies have established that retina’s and pineal gland’s cells have a similar structure. No wonder that in ancient treatises, the epiphysis has one more name, as the third eye. Besides sensitivity to light, the epiphysis has a very high sensitivity to electromagnetic fields. Not only that, it participates in the emission of these energies by the brain. And there is a particularly intriguing function of this gland – the ability to pick up electromagnetic fields not only from the space of three dimensions in which we live but also from other Universe dimensions, allowing access to spiritual and subtle fields. In other words, the pineal gland would be able to detect dimensions invisible to normal eyes. This little radar would be linked to phenomena such as clairvoyance (clairaudience of events that have not yet occurred), telepathy (communication by thought), and the ability to make contact with other dimensions (mediumism).
In the human head, almost everything is symmetric. Two eyes, two ears, two parts of the brain, but only one area of the brain does not have a mirroring pair. This area is the pineal gland and energetic center surrounding it. In the physical level of understanding, the pineal gland creates unique molecules, as molecules of DMT, a psychedelic drug that is possible to find in many plants and animals, including humans. DMT is produced from the first moment during human birth or at the moment of death. Thus, it works as a unique bridge between the world of life and death. DMT is also created naturally during deep meditation or thrown to the organism by applying entheogenic plants.
The word pineal has the same root as the word “pine” precisely because the pineal gland has an analogic spiral structure.
This model was known in ancient art as the flower of life and was used to present enlightened and awakened beings. The pine on drawings with holy motives is the symbol of the awakened third eye, focused consciousness moving the flow of evolution energy. Presentation of pine cones represents enlightening of higher chakra that gets activated with the moving of the energy through noisy Vishuddha chakra and higher.
In Greek mythology, the fans of Dionis used a giant pine to represent Dionis’s Kundalini Shakti energy and move up through the spine to the pineal gland in the area of the sixth chakra.
Also, in the hearth of Vatikan, rather than seeing the giant sculpture of Jesus, Maria, or similar symbols, we can find a monumental sculpture of a pine cone. It most probably proves that also in Christian history existed the knowledge of chakras and Kundalini, but for some reason, it was hidden from the masses. Why? I don’t want to go into the conspiracy, but hiding this information from the masses causes the possibility of manipulation of the masses via dis-balancing the entire world. The official answer of the Vatican deputies is that the pine cone is the symbol of being born and represents the new life in Christ.
Philosopher of the 13th-century Eckhart von Hochheim OP, commonly known as Meister Eckhart, said: “The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye”.
In the stage of the most profound meditation level, the person is at the same time observing as well as being observed. That means I am the Universe and the Universe is me. I am the conscious itself.
The activation of Kundalini gets activated the sixth chakra and pineal gland that causes that organism of the human to start to restore its evolution functions.
For thousands of years, meditation in the dark was used to activate the sixth chakra and the pineal gland area. Activation of that center allows the person to see his inner light. It doesn’t matter if it is an experienced master of yoga, a mystic shaman in the deepness of the cave, devoted Dao, or Maya, or Tibetian monk. Every culture practices a period of time when you are in the dark. Pineal glands are the gates that allow direct access to your energy.
The philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche said: If you look long enough at the bottom of a vase, you will eventually notice that the bottom of the vase is looking at you.
When the person continuously meditates in the full dark, in the end, he starts to feel his inner energy and activates the third eye. The biorhythms regulated by sun and moon phases do not control functions of the body, and the body setups to the new rhythm. For thousands of years, the seventh chakra is the symbol of OM built on signs of Sanskrit elements.
When the energy of Kundalini moves up the sixth chakra, it starts to create the energy of Nimba. We can find the Nimba in every religion of our planet’s history. For Europeans, it’s mainly known as the halo over the head of saint people on sculptures, frescos, and drawings.
We can find this sign in every continent and every religion. The presentation of Nimba – the energy around the awakened existence – is practically common for all religions in every part of the planet. The evolution process of awaking chakras is not the asset of a single community or religion. It is the inseparable right of every person on Earth. The crown chakra connects with the goddess and everything behind the border of duality, behind the names, forms, and meaning.
The Pharaoh Echnaton from the Egyptian culture is known as the person who reopened the Aten – the god’s word inside himself by uniting the Kundalini and consciousness.
This god’s word is also known in Indian culture under the name of Sahasrara and is described as a lotus flower with 1,000 petals of different colors. Buddha is also associated with the symbol of the lotus. In the blooming lotus flower, we can find the spiraled fragment, the same as we already mentioned as the flower of life – the seed of life.
This fundamental fragment is universal and applies to all forms. It is a form of space itself, that means – the field of Akasha.
Again, the flower of life is the common sign available in all religions across all parts of the world. We can find the flower of life cordoned by Lions in the most spiritual places of India and Asia.
Quite often, 64 hexagrams surround the sign of Jing Jang, which is one more expression of the flower of life.
The flower of life is the geometry-based element that can express any form in the Universe.
The ancient flower of life starts from the star type of object – two mirror-positioned triangles that look like the thetraidal structure in 3D measurement. This symbol is known as a Jantra, the kind of tool existing in the Universe. Let’s say – the machine that generates our fractal world.
The Yantra was used as an instrument for the awakening of awareness for thousands of years. The visual format of Yantra is the outer presentation of the inner process of spiritual growth.
This hidden music of the Universe becomes visible and is created from intersecting geometric pictures.
Every human chakra represents the lotus, yantra, and psychophysiological center with itself, though it can be over-lived the whole Universe. In Tibetian culture, the yantra is always full-filled by reaching layers of meaning and filled by the profound cosmological outlook.
Yantra is the continuously developing model that works thanks to the power of duplication (fractals) and rounding iterations of the spiral. Unfortunately, the power of yantra is almost lost because we can see sense only in the outer form, and we cannot connect intentionally to the inner energy.
There is a concrete reason why monks and yoginis lived in celibacy. These days, due to the lost connection of understanding the inner world, only a few know why they practice abstinence. The reason is pretty simple. Due to the consumption of the inner energy to produce sperms and egg cells, this energy can be missing for Kundalini that activates higher chakras. Kundalini is the energy of life, as well as sexual energy. When this energy is less concentrated for life, it can move up via the spine and concentrate on the higher levels of the body connected with the resonance of universe vibrations. There are yantra practices that teach you how to manage this sexual energy and use it for higher spiritual evolution.
The state of our consciousness creates the necessary conditions for our energy and the possibility of its growth. Therefore, the change of the state of consciousness does not consume too much energy.
Spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle said: the presence of consciousness always takes place in the present moment. When you try to make something happen, you create the opposite resistance to the present existing in being. Removing all obstacles allows the energy of evolution to open up.
In ancient yoga culture, yoga asanas were used for the preparation of the body for meditation. Hatha yoga has never been used as physical training but rather for connecting inner and outer worlds. In the translation of Sanskrit, the meaning is the sun (ha) and moon (tha). When the polarities of dual worlds are balanced, then we are awaking the third – we found the mystic Golden key that opens the evolution energies of Nature. It is a synthesis of sun and moon channels in our evolution energy.
Due to the reason that modern people are mostly connected to their mind and the outer world, we can rarely meet the person balancing its inner and outer power, allowing Kundalini to be awake in a natural way. Those who identified themselves with the illusion of Kundalini always will remain the metaphor, but never the direct experience of a merge of energy and consciousness.
We live in a world of searching for happiness in the outer world – as a kind of product, and at the same time, we are slaves of our inner wishes and aspirations. Happiness cannot be found, bought, or obtained in the form of a “cheap” suit, nice car, or lovely apartment. The real happiness is in Maya – the illusion – the endless game of the forms. In Buddhist culture, Samsara, also called the infinite cycle of suffering, gets powered by the endless thirst for pleasure.
Sigmund Freud called this the pleasure principle. Everything in our lives focuses on creating and searching for pleasure, fulfilling our wishes, and trying not to get unwished.
The dilemma of the modern community is that we are trying to understand the world, not from the position of archaic understanding of our inner essence. Instead, from the position of quantity-based and qualifying–based perception of the outer world using scientific tools and thinking. The process of endless thinking brings us to increasing thoughts and increasing the volume of questions.
We are trying to understand the inner energy of the world, creating and moving the flow, and understanding the world as something existing around us, rather than understanding it as something alive and existing in our inner nature.
Who watches and thinks in the borders of the outer world is asleep, and the one watching inside on the inner world is awake. There is nothing bad about the wish to wake up to become happy. The search for happiness in the outer world is, simply said, a delusion because it can only be found only inside.
These days every day, we create the volume of information that equals the volume produced during the whole history of our civilization. We can measure the volume of daily information created by people in Exabytes. In our civilization’s history, there has never been so much thinking available and, at the same time, never been so much disbalance on the planet.
With the understanding of natural principles, we are probably breaking the balance by thinking and solving one problem. By solving one problem, we create another two, as the system of nature automatically tries to balance it. This process is isolating us from more lovely and sense-full experiences of life. Our thinking and actions should be brought into the balance of being again.
We want changes and stability at the same time. Our hearts are separated from the spiral of life, from the law of change, because our thinking mind is moving us into stability, secureness, and calming the senses – but it is an illusion.
With really sick interest, we watch murders, violence, tsunami, earthquakes, and wars. We are constantly forcing our minds and charging them with information. Television and other media attack us everywhere and on all devices; they play games with us by creating puzzles, text messages, and similar trivial things around us. We allow ourselves to be in hypnosis by the endless flow of mindful pictures, new information, and new ways to make the mind busy and calm down the sense.
At the moment of inner silence, our spirit can show us that life is much more interesting than our being. We live in a world of hungry ghosts with endless thirst and who never get satisfied.
We created the real network of data-flowing around the planet that makes more and more necessity of thinking about how to repair the world and solve problems that exist only by the existence of our mind – the mind that creates that world. Thinking made a big mess. We fight against sickness, enemies, and problems. By this approach, we create a paradox that everything against what we are fighting continues to exist. So the more we are trying to be resistant against something, the more powerful it gets and the more stable it is.
So, what’s should be the alternative to our thinking? What kind of thinking should we use to exist on this planet? In the last centuries, western culture was focused on research and analysis of the material world. But, the ancient civilizations worked out even more difficult technologies to understand the inner world (space). Especially this disconnection of our inner world and our outer world imbalanced our planet.
The old expression of “know yourself” was replaced by the wish to research and understand the outer world. In Buddhism, it is known that we are not simply content with our consciousness. To collect minds and ideas is possible only because behind the minds, there is someone who is the witness of those minds.
The egoistic self-definition tries to find the answer and the goal, but the truth is that “who you are” in absolute understanding does not require the exact answer because all questions are created only by the egoistic mind. You are not your mind. So the actual meaning is not to find more answers but to have fewer questions.
Professor of literature Joseph Campbel said: I don’t believe that people search for the purpose of life, but they search for the experience to remain alive.
Buddha answered very simply the question: Who you are. “I am awakened,” told buddha. But, what does it mean to be “awakened”? Buddha cannot clearly answer this question because the blooming of every human life is different. He said it is the end of suffering. Every religion has its own naming of this answer: paradise, nirvana, mocha. The stress-less mind is everything that’s needed to the consciousness of the natural flow. When your mind is quiet and calmed down, everything else happens naturally. The inner energy wakes up and starts to work without any effort from your side.
How is known in DAO culture Chi watch on consciousness staying in the moment of calm you start to feel the smartness of plants and animals. The silence of wishes and learning you this sensitive mechanism by which these wishes getting materialized. In Dao this kind of living is called Wei we wei that we can translate as Doing, not doing. Buddha said about the middle way. Aristoteles described the golden middle as the middle between two extremes as the optimal way of beauty. Not too focused, but also not be lax, but find the ideal balance.
Vedanta, also known as Maya, is also known as an illusion – the absence of feelings about the surroundings and understanding it in the form of projection is created by us only by our minds. Our minds allow us by a special system to feel (see, hear) the world’s vibrations. The same inner calm does not depend on the outer situation.
The faith of the outer world created by our mind is always filtered through feelings and because of this it always is incomplete. In the core of all feelings exist only a single vibration field. Some of the people in the state of Synesthesia feel this vibration field differently. Synestetics can see the sound in the form of color or geometrical forms. Also, it is possible to merge specifics of one feeling with another one. Chakras and feelings are very similar instruments that filter to “see” different vibrations.
PIC – BODY WITH SENSES
Everything in the Universe is vibrating with different intensities and different waves. We have six types of senses:
Same like in ancient Vedic system, the same now, thinking is one of the sense only. Feeling these feelings simultaneously allows creating the minds based on a single information source. Thinking is just an instrument. One of six feelings, but for some reason, we give it such a high priority that we are identifying ourselves with our thoughts. We are so focused on our thoughts that we are trying to explain the mind as a feeling.
We are not that which eyes can see, but that whereby eyes can see. It is the eternal Brahma. We are not that which we can hear by ears, but that whereby ears can hear. It is the eternal Brahma. We are not that about which we can tell by words, but that whereby words can be told. It is the eternal Brahma. We are not that about which can think the mind, but that whereby the mind can think. It is the eternal Brahma.
During the last ten years, scientists reached a lot of success in analyzing the human brain. The term neural-plasticity expresses the physical connection between neurons of the brain that gets changed in relation to thoughts moving through them. The psychologist Donald Hebb found that when two neurons are active simultaneously, the connection between them is getting stronger. When a person is in the state of continuous attention, neurons link with each other, which means that we can create our own subjective perception of reality.
That means that when the mind is full of stress, fear, and negativity, we strengthen connections for a higher volume of similar thoughts. The same goes for the opposite. When we focus our minds on love and happiness, we strengthen this connection.
How can we do that when we are surrounded by violence and suffering? Will it be self-deception and acceptance of our wishes as reality? Neural-plasticity is not an understanding of the new age. When we talk about our reality through positive thinking, we are talking about the education of Budha from 2500 years ago.
Vipassana meditation, also called Meditation of inner insights, can be defined as self-managed neural-plasticity. We accept our reality exactly how it actually is, how it is at the present moment. We accept it on the deepest level of feelings, at the level of vibrations and energy. Without prejudice, without the impact of thoughts. In the brain, at the deepest level of thinking, with the help of attention, we can create a new type of reality perception. Circumstances and conditions do not matter anymore— only the perception of the consciousness matters.
The word meditation in Sanskrit means being free from evaluation, free from comparison, free from all matches. So it’s not about not trying to become someone else, but being ourselves and feeling comfortable with what’s going on at present. To become free from suffering and physical reality, it is necessary to accept it and agree on it fully. As a result, it becomes something inside ourselves. They and you are something inside it.
The question is how we can learn to live in a state when consciousness is not in conflict with its content. How to clean up the hearth from the small ambitions in consciousness should become cardinal changes. The ridiculous movement in orientation from the outer world into the inner world. This evolution/revolution is impossible to reach only by will and effort; humility is necessary.
Acceptance of reality as it is.
The expression of the open hearth of Christ strongly gives the idea of opening ourselves to all sufferings. To become in connection with the evolution source, we have to accept absolutely everything. This does not mean that we need to become some kind of masochist – it’s not about searching for the pain. But when the pain comes, we accept that reality as it is instead of forecasting another one.
For a long time, Hawaiians believed that we could know truthfulness only through the hearth. The heart has its own intellect, with the same power as a brain, even much higher. Egyptians believed that it’s not the brain, but the hearth is the source of human wisdom. They thought that the heart is the center of the spirit and personality. God’s words are coming through the heart, opening doors to their knowledge about the truthfulness way.
There exist universal primitive states that people are experiencing during the process of awakeness of hearth center. It is an experience of their energy as the energy of the Universe. When we allow ourselves to feel this love, become that love, and when we connect our inner world with the outer world, everything becomes one.
How can we feel the music of spheres? How to open the hearth?
Sri Ramana Maharshi said: God lives in you the same as you live in God, and you should do nothing for the realization of God or self-realization. Throughout all searching and turning your attention inside. Direct your mind to yourself inside the deep heart of your being.
The direct way of self-analysis allows going through this by our own experience. When meditating and watching our inner feelings and inner life, we see facts in variables. When energy changes its form, we can see changes in our feelings’ form of appearances and disappearances. The level of awakeness relates to the level of evolution of our ability to adapt ourselves to the present moment, or the possibility to change bliss to continuously changing conditions, pain, and pleasants.
Lev Tolstoy said: everyone thinks about the change of the world, but nobody thinks about the change of himself. Darwin also found that one of the most important characteristics of surviving is not power or intelligence but the possibility to adapt to changes. Therefore, it is necessary to become an artist of adaptation. Buddhist knowledge of Anitiya tells that everything appears and disappears, everything is changing all the time. Suffering exists only because we are connecting to particular forms. When we connect with viewing a part of ourselves, with an understanding of Anitiya in heart appears the bliss.
Throughout history, saints and scientists, yogins, and mystics unanimously described the saint unity happening in the hearth. The mystery secret of the heart is in the unity of Shiva and Shakti, male penetration to the spiral of life and female ability to change. Watching and unconditional acceptance of everything as it is. Now, at present, to open our hearts, we have to be open to changes. Live in the world that looks for us as matter, dancing with it, involving with it, living a full life, love for real, but know that it is not endless and at the end of the end, all forms get dissolved and change.
Bliss is energy that reacts to immovability. It is created from awakeness and cleaning of consciousness from everything around us. Bliss comes to our hearts with the newly awakened energy of everything.
You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, it is necessary to build a new model that makes the current one obsolete. – Buckminster Fuller
We all must believe with trust that we all have the same opportunity to know and we all must believe that we can. The question of how is irrelevant when you truly know that you can.
A long time ago, we lived on a planet with 5 million people. Till 1800 the population growth was very slow, a few hundred thousand every year. At the beginning of the 18th century, approximately 1 billion people already lived on the Earth. Later, with the development of medicine and technologies, with the experience of farming and machinery, our population begins to grow dramatically. Despite two world wars and the Spanish flu, the population grew to 5 billion at the end of 1960. After that, the situation changed exponentially. During the life of one generation, the population grows to twice and a half. These days we can track every born and dead person globally. We can confidently say that in 2021, we have almost 8 billion people in the world, and still growing. By the end of 2050, the world will be over 9,5 billion people by WHO’s prognosis.
The birth rate itself is a fascinating topic. Surveillance of the human population depends on reliability to sustain the birthrate and not grow. As history shows us, the overpopulation of any living organism on the planet has a massive impact on the environment, and at 100% always leads to a self-destruction scenario. It seems that nature has its methods of how to survive. The same rule is valid everywhere in nature and for the human population too. The population continues to grow, with every family having three or more children. Many countries struggle with over-population and are searching for methods to decrease the growing trend of birthrate. Ordering people how many children they can have by a birth control policy is not a solution. History shows that when governments are trying to limit the birth rate by law, it raises negative feedback and conflicts. For example, in 1987, China implemented the one-child policy. Without the application of this policy, China would have today additionally more than 400 million people. The method of one child per family was valid till 2015. Chinese people naturally decided to let male children survive and to interrupt pregnancies with girls. The logic was simple. The girl will get married and leave the family; on the other side, the male will stay with the family, help the parents, and continue their family line. Because of this logic, in China, we can find 35 million “useless” males that cannot find a female. In 2015, for 100 women in age between 15-29 years, there were 280 men because reproduction age growth during the years to people’s higher and natural approach caused non-balanced coverage 3:1. That’s why China, for some time, canceled the one-child policy. Just for some time, because the uncontrolled birth rate will again cause the mass growth of the population – although, who knows, with the education quality, the behavior might change.
In another example, we can mention an experiment performed in 1970 by the government of India. In the beginning, they started with less aggressive politics. They offered voluntary sterilization of people in exchange for money. Indian people were interested in this offer. In those days Indian hospitals made over 80.000 sterilizations every day. Still, the problem was that this sterilization was used mainly by those who already had big families (often 4-5 kids), and they didn’t want more children. The experiment was not attractive to people who grow families with two children, but only three and more. That’s why the experiment didn’t bring the necessary results. Later, in several areas in India, they ran an experiment that crossed human rights. In 1977 with Indira Gandhi’s leading, a unique program was approved when sterilization became a punishment for any type, even of crime, even simple crime cases. In 1977, over 1 million people were sterilized in India. Such rules provoked negative feedback from the population and even led to the fall of the government.
That is a fact. The rapid growth of the world’s population and, as a consequence, the rapid and uncontrolled consumption increase. It will, in turn, undoubtedly contribute to the depletion of our planet’s resources. These processes are interdependent and cannot exist independently from each other. And by damaging the environment and not even thinking about it, a man harms himself in the first place. Meanwhile, environmental protection needs to be given great and constant attention. The concept implies much more than the economic use of natural resources and love for nature. It includes protecting animals and certain species of trees from destruction, reverting to reasonable animal product consumption, or rather to vegetarianism, and a drastic reduction of all kinds of waste, and many other vital aspects.
The question is, how long can we continue in this trend? What are the reserves of the planet? What are the available resources and the population’s maximum size that can comfortably survive with keeping an acceptable quality of life? The “acceptable quality” is very disputable because we use extreme consuming lifestyle differences across continents. Let’s try to understand how fast population growth already impacts the planet and its resources.
When the population grew twice – during the period of one “human generation”-, the population of wild animals faltered twice. According to Darwin’s evolution theory, we can say that the human population started the 6th mass extinction in the history of the world life evolution. Still, confidentially nobody can prove it, and we can accept even more fantastic alternatives to how life comes to the world. Even scientists say that’s the fastest mass extinction, even worse than asteroid in the dinosaur era. After the asteroid hit the Earth, the problem was that the first hit killed only the giant animals, and the climate change took thousands of years. The animals died much slower than showing trends of how we impact nature and wild animals now. Comparing these events is unrealistic, but confidentially we can see a mass liquidation of different biologic elements. Due to deforestation, millions of animals are losing their native homes, food, and vast spaces are changing from forests to the desert. We are cutting trees for retail consumption and using the land for farming and growing food for this growing population.
In the 18th century, when the population was not so incredibly high, trees covered about 60 million square kilometers of the land. During the past years, we decreased this size by 30% to 40 million square kilometers. Many world universities opened their programs for analysis of the Earth’s sustainability and availability of resources. With the current tempo of resource consumption (not only trees), but we are also going to the ecosystem’s fatal crash due to an insufficient number of trees within the next 40-50 years with the probability of 90%.
We are overpopulated. That’s the fact. With the current consumption speed, we broke far ago the threshold of resources sustainability. We consume more than we can produce. We waste more than Earth can recover from it. We consume more fish that can grow in nature and produce much more CO2 than trees can reproduce into oxygen. We live in debt. This resource debt is changing the planet and day by day decreasing its quality, flexibility, sustainability, or better say, the probability of sustaining life. What we are doing is only growing this debt against the planet. It’s not a fantasy story – this is the reality of our daily lives. We live in debt with resources. We live in the same arrogant, capitalist economics, showing the same parameters and freeloader behavior by consuming without paying attention to sustainability, quality, and geographic equality.
Only in the last years, we started to feel the impact of industrialization and overpopulation on natural resources. The world power generators and transportation infrastructure release into the atmosphere billions of tons of CO2, catastrophically impacting the environment and the climate. That highlighted at least about the topic talking over the 10.000 scientists during the past years. Storms, hurricanes, and water flooding will impact the population more and more. By predictions of 2050, water flooding will become a dangerous direct impact for over the 1 billion people living on the seaside. All this said, it looks like demographics growing cause a real danger for the planet, nature, and environment, but it’s not so exact as it may look at first sight.
Theories about the end of civilization due to the over-consuming of resources are not new. The resources question was raised first at the beginning of the 18th century by physics. In 1972, the Club of Rome created analytical documentation “The Limits to Growth” that compares the speed of growth with the impact to the existing and sustainable resources. According to calculations, continuous economic growth and demographic growth should create more and more pressure on the natural resources and biosphere of the planet. We live in debt with resources. At some point, a catastrophe must occur due to the depletion of natural resources and deadly pollution of the environment. Consequently, in a probable case scenario, we can expect the collapse of civilization in the middle of the 20th century. The full impact on the population will occur until the end of the 21st century. Every day, people require more food, water, energy, and many other goods to live their daily needs (or, better say, wishes). It is challenging to produce such a volume of resources without destroying the planet.
Based on the study, we started to live in Earth’s debt in 1987. That was the first year when the population consumed more resources than was possible to produce. From there, ecologists started to celebrate the day of Ecologic debt. There is one more aspect of the debt: the economics and sociology part of human civilization. The debt started sooner – in the second half of the 17th century with the first banking/centralized monetary system opening. The Post-War Generation was full of optimism and trust in the future, motivated for higher consumption with future technologies and advertisements. But we should not share this mood with them. We are in a very different situation.
Let’s now move one on, and let’s raise a question – does the planet have enough resources to feed the population? The food industry is not so simple. Since the 18th century, people have been thinking about over-population and if it will be possible to feed the world’s population. The good news is that yes, we have enough food, but we have the consumption problem again. Each year, we raise the average calories consumption – people eat more and more. In the 20th century, industrially developed countries could increase food production trice thanks to synthetic fertilizers, farm machinery, and a high level of process automation. Thanks to the invention of shipping containers and logistics technologies, the food price fell thirty times. These days much more people in the world are dying from obesity than from hunger. Suddenly, this overconsumption of calories is terrible not only for fat people but this behavior has a significant impact on the environment around us. Imagine if everyone would eat only the necessary calories that their organism needs; our planet would feed one more billion people without any additional resources production.
Based on the center of space flights NASA, humans maintain almost all available land with the necessary parameters and potential for farming machinery. Some countries already consume all available land in their countries and rent additional areas in different places of the world to grow the produce. After the harvest, they are exporting it back to their market. And with the existing trends, the situation will get worse, but there is one paradox. Even though the 8 billion civilization will increase by another 2 billion during the next generation, the population is getting better. You would think that with the growing population, our situation should get worse, but it’s not the case. Instead of less, we are getting more resources. How is it possible? The population is growing, but along it is getting more prosperous. We live much better than we lived when there were 50% less of people. It’s a paradox that breaks the logic, and often it looks like scientists who are talking about overpopulation lie to us. I want to remind you that ever since 1700, many educated people have highlighted over-population and related problems. First, they think that we remarkably grow and will damage ourselves when we reach 4 billion thresholds. Then, they were afraid of the number of 6 billion. These days, we are again talking about the topic with a population of 8 billion.
Instead of world hunger and poverty, the volume of global food production increased. The availability of resources for every person is bigger than before. On average, now we live significantly better than before. How is it possible? Why is it going totally against the prognosis? It’s simple. Prediction of the past could not forecast technological innovations and always think about the technology as a constant parameter. But technologies help us to cross the border of maximal levels of planet production capability. During the year, thanks to technologies, we were able to increase planet productivity significantly. There is no doubt that the same as we did last year, we will prolong to do in the future and improve the planet’s productivity performance even twice.
Often when people talk about over-population, they talk about food and water resources. In the prediction of WHO analysis, in 2050, almost 65% of the population will struggle with insufficient freshwater. Do you also think it is a problem? I think so. It’s a fundamental problem. From the global perspective, we always struggle with water resources’ insufficiency even though 75% of the planet is covered by water. Although only 2% of this water is drinking water, even half of this is unavailable for consumption.
The water is either in the form of ice in the oceans or snow on the top of hills. We can analyze our water requirements and consumption by watching the Earth from satellites during the years. We can see how the Aral Sea in Central Asia dried up. 32.000km of water channels used for flooding farming areas desiccated it. Where before was a sea, is now a dirty, grey area. But the Aral Sea is not a unique lost sea; we can see more examples like the Yellow River in China. Only 10% of the river comes to the sea, and the rest is used to flood the farming areas. Similar to the river Ind in Pakistan, it remains again only 10% of the water. Or a similar situation in the USA when only 10% of the Colorado River reaches the Mexico border.
Constant insufficiency of water is the reaction of insufficient quality of infrastructure, very low efficiency of the water usage, and of course, over-population. Today, over 1 billion people struggle with the insufficiency of water. The water is missing for sanity and cleaning purposes and the basic needs – for drinking. For example, on the African continent, there are common conflicts between nations because of water. Even countries with a sufficient GDP level, like Mexico or Brazil, often struggle with freshwater insufficiency. We can also find the shortage of fresh water in countries that are much more developed. Like for example, in Los Angeles, Cape Town, or Tokyo. For instance, in São Paulo, with over 20 million people conglomeration, people started developing their own water wells. But underground freshwater resources are also limited, and people again harvest it much faster than nature can regenerate/recycle. And we know that the population’s growth continues and the perspective of freshwater availability for a population that will come during the next 30 years showing is very low.
Prediction says that in 2025, not less than two billion people will face systematic insufficiency of drinking water, and in 2040 will struggle more than 50% of the world population. Because most water resources are going to food production machinery and farming, there will be a secondary impact, less food to feed the 10 billion people. So we can say that the population is usable only 1% of the water in the world. At the current moment, we use about 50% of this 1% of freshwater. From this water, about 75% of water is used for farming and production. For example, to grow a few potatoes, you need on average 25l of water, for a salad over 140l of water, to get two chicken eggs 270l of water, and if you eat a good beef steak, you can be sure that the production consumes over 2000l of drinking water. Do you want some more extreme examples? One kilogram of bread consumes 1600l of water, 1kg of cheese can consume over 5500l of water, and one nice hamburger costs us 15000+l of freshwater. That’s the reason why water is becoming one of the essential resources in the world. Do we need it? So much meat? For the price of our survival and lives?
The next problem we will struggle with is energy sufficiency. Three hundred years and the industrial revolution caused a mass migration of the world population to cities. This migration brings new problems with production and energy for all types of infrastructures. In 2006, the population volume in cities crossed the population living in villages and other countrysides. The mass migration and concentration of population in cities doesn’t stop but instead keeps growing. These days, over 30 super-towns (big cities) with over 20 million citizens exist worldwide. Such a concentration has an enormous impact on the nature around these cities. Of course, cities consume more energy than villages. They need supporting infrastructure, which consumes more and more land around the cities and damages nature.
By prognosis, in 2050, over 7 billion people will be concentrated in big cities, which means the volume will grow twice compared to cities’ current situation. It may sound incredible, but during the next 30 years, we will develop more urban infrastructure projects than we did during our whole history. And this will strongly impact our environment. From the logistics perspective, communication between cities in 2050 will increase citizens’ volume in travel by over 600%. That would cause a massive impact on ecology. For example, one flight by plane equals eight months of car usage.
The prediction says that in 2050 in the current trends of yearly sold travel tickets that equals 4 billion will increase to 16 billion. With the current lifestyle, we can expect that over 44 million people will travel daily. The same volume of cars on roads will increase to 2 billion. Requirements for energy will also remarkably grow up. Till 2050 the need for energy in the form of petrol, gas, and electricity will increase twice. We’ll have to develop thousands of power generation stations around the world to meet our needs. By the present consumption standards, coal resources are sufficient till the beginning of the 21st century, oil resources for the next 50 years.
Still, the question is the ecological aspect of harvesting these resources. For how many years can the ecology survive with the systematic damaging of its essential resources? Nobody knows. Cheap energy caused us to remarkably increase our comfort and consumption without paying attention to our behavior’s impact. We are consuming without thinking about how we waste or use it ineffectively. Leaving on lights when the room is empty, computers in offices running non-stop – that’s only two examples out of thousands that we daily do in our lives.
Only in the last years, we started to feel the impact of industrialization and overpopulation on natural resources. The world power generators and transportation infrastructure release into the atmosphere billions of tons of CO2, catastrophically impacting the environment and the climate. That highlighted at least about the topic talking over the 10.000 scientists during the past years. Storms, hurricanes, and water flooding will impact the population more and more. By predictions of 2050, water flooding will become a dangerous direct impact for over the 1 billion people living on the seaside. All this said, it looks like demographics growing cause a real danger for the planet, nature, and environment, but it’s not so exact as it may look at first sight.
The main problem is not in the population itself but the level of consumption. The most growing countries by economic trends consume much more than people in the least developed countries. Several studies are available about the central question of how many people can live on Earth in a sustainable form at different consumption levels. Suppose the world consumption would decrease to the level of the average Indian. In that case, the Earth would be capable of producing resources for 12 billion people. If we decreased consumption to the average Rwandan citizen, the Earth would provide resources for even 15 billion people.
In the most extreme scenario, if we decreased consumption to the level of rainforest indigenous with the current technology level, the Earth could accommodate over 30 billion people. On the other hand, in case we increased worldwide consumption to the average European level, the planet would secure enough resources for only 3 billion people, and only 2 billion with USA citizens’ standards. Suppose the whole world population today starts to live based on USA standards. In that case, we would need three planets Earth to cover their standards, like one car for every member of the family, several televisions, phones, computers, thousands of pieces of clothes, and an extreme amount of food.
During the next years, the major migration expansion of population is expected in countries currently stated as least developed countries. Theoretically, the population’s increase with their consumption level in these countries should not negatively impact the environment from the world perspective because these countries use a low level of consumption. For example, over 40% of the population lives with a budget lower than 5 USD, and logically they consume much less than countries with stable economics. Also, due to less consumption, these countries produce much less waste than countries with a robust economic situation like the USA. An excellent example can be dioxide per citizen. Low-income countries produce 1 ton of dioxin per citizen; in high-income countries, it is between 6 to 30 tons of carbon dioxin per citizen. That’s why it is possible to think that population expansion to 10 billion in these countries would not create an additional load to the Earth’s resources and environment. But the world is changing.
Following the population growth in low-income countries, its population will become more prosperous and change consuming standards. Population expansion and migration of people to cities in Africa and other low developed countries’ cities will develop better economic stability. Countries will get better overall, and corporations’ mass marketing will support high-consuming standards. With higher life quality comes an increase in consumption to the level of the average European. This behavior is already visible in China, where the economic situation is rapidly growing, and citizens’ consuming needs are based on their ideals from Europe or the USA. The situation becomes hazardous for the planet Earth, and we can face serious environmental problems. Concerns arise from the African population’s present goals to bring life quality to the level we are currently calling standard one. Many agencies highlight it is fair, thinking from the perspective of social equity. And that we should morally support this idea of setting the same life quality level in these countries.
But what should we do? Should we continue to support these countries’ development and, on the other side, try to compensate for their level of consumption by decreasing consumption in already developed countries? It is pretty challenging to explain to people in different countries to eat less meat, travel less by car, or reduce traffic by cutting down tourism. I am pretty sure that nobody will agree on this. But we do have not too many options. Either we radically change our behavior or wait for brutal destruction of the capitalist system and an environmental issue that may cause fatal damage to human civilization.
Let’s think about everything that we understand as standard these days. We are used to permanent economic growth, technological progress, and the market dynamics to supply all the known and unknown people’s wishes. Our living standards include comfortable and regular traveling, relaxation on beaches or mountains, private houses, land and cars, and children’s education. We are free to do anything we want, be who we want to be, with whom to be, and who to love and what to trust. We will lose all this privilege if we do not change how we serve.
We are not simple animals programmed to a never-ending reproduction till we damage ourselves. Our smartness capability is fantastic, and often we surprise even ourselves. These days we collected much more knowledge than ever before. It will be tragic if we’ll not be able to use the knowledge to get better and be better. People have unbelievable possibilities to generate ideas to solve any problem in the world. With the usage of big data and artificial intelligence, we should solve any other problem than the over-population. We already have the solution to survive. The answer is packed into several agendas without a good or bad mission behind the agenda. European Union has their carbon-free 2050, the US has the New world order plan, India has their Smart Cities strategy, and Russian countries have their Eurasia.
We are already starting to create technologies and automation that give us alternative options for sustainable energy sources. For example, California’s thermal station Ivanpah Solar Power Facility is the world’s most giant thermo-dynamic power plant. At first sight, it looks like solar panels, but they are not. The fields are covered by 300.000 huge mirrors whose position is operated by computer. These mirrors concentrate light waves and route them to the giant water-heater (boiler) that transforms water into steam. The steam powers turbines and generators to produce electricity. One system like Ivanpah can produce electricity to power over 150.000 houses. And this is only one of the examples of the power of our closest star – the Sun.
Besides the Sun, we have other significant sources of energy. Wind power is another one of the most influential power generators used these days globally. In fact, many countries are receiving a considerable part of their energy from wind turbines. The solution is nuclear and alternative technology like fusion power. Based on EON studies, nuclear energy is the cleanest and the most effective in the world these days. Moreover, nuclear power plants can effectively operate for 93%. Although due to Chernobyl and Fukushima accidents, people are pretty negative about using this kind of energy. That’s causing another paradox: being afraid of nuclear energy impacts the environment more than nuclear energy itself. Instead of nuclear power plants, people prefer and keep developing coil or gas-based power plants. But during the past ten years, eco-activist and eco-organizations changed their view about nuclear power. As a result, they gave the green flag to supporting nuclear energy. That’s why there is an optimistic prediction that by 2050, we could solve the energy problem. We will be able to receive 100% of our energy consumption from environmentally clean energy.
Every year we are getting from the Sun energy exceeds our needs by 20 thousand times. For the past five years, the volume of the energy we received from the Sun increased by 100%. Most probably, soon, the Sun will be one of the most critical resources that give the necessary energy to our population. For example, in China, it is possible to develop over 400GW of power from the Sun. This volume of energy covers twice the summary needs of the African continent. During the past ten years, Canada increased wind energy usage by 2000%, which caused over 1,5 million houses to operate with zero emissions. But wind and solar energy also have one bottleneck, which’s an unstable situation with the availability of resources.
The efficiency of solar and wind energy is about 30% only. That means that only 30% of the operation is enough light and sufficient wind power to produce electricity effectively. And the population, houses, hospitals, and whole human infrastructure need permanent electrification. Partially we can cover it with accumulators that are vigorously innovating during the last year. However, they’re still not as effective as the direct electric network. In practice, Sun and wind energy we are producing now these days have two weaknesses. One is the high requirement for the land to place harvesting elements. The second is the low efficiency of energy production in time. Most probably, we will not be able to cover the population’s needs with these resources only.
James Lovelock’s Gaia theory inspired the Green movement. But as fossil fuels begin, literally, to cost the Earth, he argues that nuclear power could save the planet. Life is not just a force for good; it is a force for its own good. Life has a way of managing things in favor of more life. And in the course of doing so, life manages a whole planet. It makes an atmosphere to breathe, water to drink, food to eat, and then it recycles its own detritus.
It’s been more than 30 years since James Lovelock, a freelance chemist with a background in medical research and a gift for devising sensitive detectors, worked for Nasa on the Mars exploration program. While doing so, he began to form the idea of the biosphere as a self-regulating entity of life and the planet as a kind of sensitive organism. Not sensitive to any particular form of life, just to the principle of life. He called it the Gaia hypothesis. It was the novelist William Golding, his friend and neighbor, who suggested the name. Gaia was the Earth goddess, the Greeks’ Mother Nature. Gaia is a kind of metaphor for a very subtle lesson in the physiology of a planet. But Gaia became a reality, too, for the Greens, particularly those inclined to mysticism.
Where to find an easy answer to the great problem of how to power an economy without shutting down the biosphere with polluting greenhouse gases? The answer, Lovelock says, is ecologically clean and tidy and has a terrible press. It is nuclear power. But the real dangers to humanity and the ecosystems of the Earth from nuclear power are almost negligible. You get things like Chernobyl, but what happens? Thirty-odd brave firefighters died who needn’t have died, but its general effect on the world population is almost negligible. What has it done to wildlife? All around Chernobyl, where people are not allowed to go because the ground is too radioactive, nature doesn’t care about radiation. It has come flooding in. It became again one of the richest ecosystems in the region.
The big threat to the planet, he says, is people: there are too many, doing too well economically and burning too much oil. “It’s the people that count and the only message I would have to give is to stop fretting, stop looking for scapegoats, people are to blame for the condition of the Earth. It is me, you, all of us that are to blame and if we are going to do anything about it we have to tackle it individually, not expect anybody to take the load off us and do it.
If you are a housewife in Balham you are not, probably, doing anywhere near as much to damage the planet as suburbanites and exurbanites living around here, using their cars wholly unnecessarily in huge numbers of journeys and burning far more fuel. The more money you have, the more damage you can do.” He thinks the big dangers to the planet are the greenhouse effect and the spread of humanity. Just by their fecundity and their economic demands, humans have begun to affect habitat and biodiversity so furiously that it might happen that one day Gaia might not be able to step in and adjust the conditions to secure her reign.
Many competent people underestimate the environmental crisis and are overly optimistic. Researchers say that global policy-making is far from addressing these existential threats. Securing the future of the Earth requires prudent and long-term decisions. However, short-term interests and an economic system that focuses on a few individuals’ wealth prevent this. Right-wing populist leaders with anti-environmental programs are on the rise. In many countries, protest groups pointing to the alarming state of the environment are considered terrorists. Environmentalism has become a weapon that serves more as a political ideology than as a universal way of self-preservation. Financial disinformation campaigns, such as those against climate action and forest protection, protect short-term gains and say that meaningful environmental measures are too costly. However, the higher costs of inaction are ignored. Thus, business investment is unlikely to slow down and prevent an ecological catastrophe.
The current stage of global economic development is characterized by an aggravation of the main dialectical contradiction – between man and nature, humankind and the Earth’s resources – the natural, material basis of crises. Population growth, followed by an increase in global consumption, increases pressure on natural resources and habitats. Science and new technologies, giving rise to new solutions leading to an increase in global productivity, have to a large extent removed the problem of imbalances and also facilitated progress. At the same time, the negative effects of this progress are increasingly revealed. The most serious problem is the resource supply of the world economy.
Scarcity of raw materials, energy, and food and a lack of solutions – resource depletion occurs faster than finding them and ways of compensating for them. Unprecedented changes resulting from fifty years of human activity aimed at meeting food, water, and energy needs have improved living standards for millions of people. However, most of the existing ecosystem services supporting life on Earth have been degraded. The negative impacts are likely to intensify in the coming decades.
Bulletin of the Nuclear Scientists’ project at the University of Chicago, where the first American nuclear bomb was developed by 1945, became known as the Doomsday Clock. Frightened by the monstrous consequences of the invention, since 1947, the American nuclear scientists have annually published an image of a dial with the hands approaching midnight on the cover of their university magazine. The hands’ position on the dial is determined by a group of international scientists specializing in nuclear physics, climate research, information technology, etc. And by the time remaining until midnight as a symbol of total global catastrophe, it was proposed to judge the level of international tension and the risk that an irreparable disaster will happen.
The magazine’s experts used to assess only the nuclear threat. They have begun to consider other risks in recent years, such as the risk of an irreversible environmental catastrophe. In January 2020, the minute hand moved 20 seconds forward; since then, it has been indicating 100 seconds to twelve. It has never been so close to midnight. This move was partly due to insufficient action by the authorities to prevent dangerous climate change. Also, the development of events in the virtual space – a sharp and uncontrolled spread of various kinds of lies and provocations on the Internet, conscious distortion of information – impacts the hands’ approach to midnight.
The problem is that for one person, a lovely small house, few technologies, and nature around is enough, and another person needs a yacht with a heliport and ten houses around the world. The world may already have enough resources for all its population but doesn’t have resources for even one greedy person. We have to learn to sober our appetite and consume much less than we are doing now. Even so, the crisis that we will overpopulate the planet is pretty high; that’s why we need to act faster.
For a while, let’s forget the ego, personal hopes, and business expectations and forget everything that surrounds you these days. Let’s think in a bit pessimistic way about the world we live in. Let’s imagine that we have already over-consumed the resources, impacting the stability of the Earth’s ecosystem sustainability. Following this, we need a more invasive transformation of how humans survive and focus on faster development of knowledge rather than consumption. I am sure that I am not the first who collected and expressed the survival scenarios. Most probably, many running agendas are covering part of my thoughts.
Despite that, I would like to highlight the scenario that can make sense to process better, deeper, and sustainable. We often discussed the optimal business system, top management, and hierarchy settings with many audiences and political systems, and global logistics processes during my professional career. Many systems can work, all of them have some strengths and weaknesses. Despite the existing global division, we agreed that the only working system would be with a wise king focused on the long-term global agenda supported by congress (50% women/50% men). Global development needs to be organized from one place, one head, one administrative, to secure the same quality of life for everyone as a kind of socialistic system.
Authority of the smart king/queen, as well as tradition, should be used to curb the elemental forces that have gone out of social control. And offer an individual a set of values, emotional orientations, rules, and standards of behavior that can become the means of achieving social peace. A true smart king professes the concept of the creator. How the ancient Romans thought and acted under a similar sign of creation, where the main component was the idea of creation, the energy of foundation in the sense of laying the foundations for the joint life of a city, a state. It is wise not to dismiss such a form as a relic of the distant past or some deviant form in a world where liberal democracy is supposed to prevail. Neither should such a smart king/queen system be idealized and taken as a panacea for the complex problems of the present. But the question remains: who has the right to decide for the whole society?
The smart king/queen can be considered the one who has a surplus of the most essential vital resources such as time, energy, status, and money. Between the excess of ideas and energy, there has to be some mechanism that would bring these two factors into balance and be useful in the three fields of human activity: usefulness for oneself, usefulness for society, and usefulness for Heaven (God-given value). It isn’t easy to achieve all three types of usefulness, but this would be the privilege that would give the key to a long-term smart king/queen status.
In any case, the supposed political system implies a unification of nations with the smart king/queen in charge and a fundamental basis for a socialist economy. So that the basic economic law of socialism, consisting of the maximum satisfaction of the growing material and spiritual needs of citizens, would shift towards spiritual needs and education. An idea based on equal distribution, with a general agreement of such a distribution. The standard level determined by common consent must be proportional to the level of remuneration. For someone who already has a high level of education, the pleasure of reward does not lie in increased consumption but in the possibility of grasping deeper knowledge and the accessibility of the sources of that knowledge. That is, reorientation of education towards higher goals will lead to the final goal of the economy. Yes, at the moment, there is no well-defined answer to this problem for such a massive change in people’s minds. But it may take a relatively short period of time, about 30 or 50 years, to change the people’s approach to this subject.
The method that helps transform the general consciousness is propaganda. The propaganda is bearing the information directed on the increase of education of the person which opens other aspects of social relations, namely to think not about oneself, but other people, environment, creation, and creativity instead of a dull consumption. Morality and ethics towards other people become a necessary condition of social relations. In this, you can see a parallel with the way mafia structures were built at their very beginnings. It was they who, in addition to domination and exploitation, brought to their activities meaningful things from private life such as friendship, unconditional trust, helping the weak.
Of course, nobody would propose that economic activity should be disrupted catastrophically in response to the climate crisis. However, the emergency response initiated so rapidly by governments across the world has shown what is truly possible when people face what they recognize as a crisis. The Covid-19 response can now be held out as an icon of what is possible when people’s lives are at stake. In the case of the climate, the stakes are even greater—the future survival of our civilization. We now know the world can respond as needed once political will is engaged and societies enter emergency mode.
One of the defining characteristics of the Neoliberal Era has been corrosive globalization based on free-market norms. Transnational corporations have dictated terms to countries in choosing where to locate their operations, leading nations to compete against each other to reduce worker protections in a “race to the bottom.” The use of cheap fossil fuels has caused wasteful misuse of resources as products are transported worldwide to meet consumer demand stoked by manipulative advertising. This globalization of markets has been a major cause of the Neoliberal Era’s massive increase in consumption that threatens civilization’s future. The effects of Covid-19 could lead to an inversion of these neoliberal norms. As supply lines break down, communities will turn to local and regional producers for their daily needs.
When a consumer appliance breaks, people will try to get it repaired rather than buy a new one. Workers, newly unemployed, may turn increasingly to local jobs in smaller companies that serve their community directly. At the same time, people will increasingly get used to connecting with others through video meetings over the internet, where someone on the other side of the world feels as close as someone across town. This could be a defining characteristic of the new era. Even while production goes local, we may see a dramatic increase in the globalization of new ideas and ways of thinking—a phenomenon known as “glocalization.”
Rebecca Solnit’s 2009 book, A Paradise Built in Hell, documents how, contrary to popular belief, disasters frequently bring out the best in people as they reach out and help those in need around them. Many people are rediscovering that they are far stronger as a community than as isolated individuals in the face of disaster. The phrase “social distancing” is helpfully recast as “physical distancing” since Covid-19 brings people closer together in solidarity than ever before. This rediscovery of the value of community can be the most important factor of all in shaping the trajectory of the next era. New ideas and political possibilities are critically important, but ultimately an era is defined by its underlying values, on which everything else is built.
The Neoliberal Era was constructed on a myth of the selfish individual as the foundational for values. As Margaret Thatcher famously declared, “There’s no such thing as society. There are individual men and women and there are families.” This belief in the selfish individual has not just been destructive of community, but it’s plain wrong. In fact, from an evolutionary perspective, a defining characteristic of humanity is our set of pro-social impulses as fairness, altruism, and compassion, which cause us to identify with something larger than our individual needs.
The compassionate responses that have arisen in the wake of the pandemic are heartwarming but not surprising—they are the expected, natural human response to others in need. It must be an era where the core human values of fairness, mutual aid, and compassion are paramount, extending beyond the local neighborhood to state and national government, to the global community of humans, and ultimately to the community of all life. Suppose we can change the basis of our global civilization from wealth-affirming to one that is life-affirming. In that case, we have a chance to create a flourishing future for humanity and the living Earth.
Britain’s MI6 intelligence service started « green spying » on developed industrialized countries to see if they met their climate commitments. And it came out saying that people are signing up to climate change commitments, and it’s probably MI6’s job to make sure that what they sign up to is actually reflected in what they do. It’s their job to shed light on places where people might not want them to. The head of MI6 sees climate issues as the most important point of Britain’s international foreign policy. Therefore, it needs a “trust, but verify” approach similar to the one Britain applies to arms control. Such words from MI6 come shortly after the US warned world leaders that the world is in a “crucial decade” for addressing the climate crisis.
Which challenges will be the most significant for humanity? If we talk about such challenges, the main one will be to survive and keep the world alive. And its existence today is in jeopardy. It is known that natural resources may be gone in the coming decades because of their ruthless exploitation. Entire industries are operated irresponsibly, and, in particular, there is no structured system for dealing with waste and refuse. Water and air pollution continues, endangering people’s health and lives not only in a particular region but throughout the world. Polluted air destroys the ozone layer. In its turn, it leads to more severe consequences, such as global warming, rising sea levels, climatic cataclysms as an increase in storms, hurricanes, rains, abnormal heat, changes in soil structure, and extinction of entire species of plants and animals. In a word, the main challenge is the environmental one. It is a question of keeping the natural balance on the planet.
On an ever-more crowded planet, responding to sustainable development‘s linked challenges, the loss of nature and climate change is no longer an option. For humanity to survive and prosper, we must transition to practices that operate safely within the limits of Earth’s life-support systems. Recently, we saw the terrible consequences of not doing so. Catastrophes like the Australian bushfires and the COVID-19 outbreak remind us that human societies and our economies are ultimately dependent on the natural world, not the other way around. Unfortunately, we ignore this dependence at our peril. Rebalancing the relationship between people, nature, and the economy has taken on a sense of urgency as humanity’s growing impacts on the planet accelerate toward irreversible tipping points. According to the scientists, we now have less than a decade to undertake collective action to avoid the worst effects of climate change being permanent ones.
Fortunately, there is a growing understanding that another path is not only urgently needed but possible. By using the best tools available, we can redesign our systems to meet the needs of the present without compromising future generations’ ability to do the same. That is the very definition of sustainable development. We have to make the change on our planet visible, accessible, and actionable. We need to see and understand the change in detail, both time and space. Only then can we be more ecologically informed, effective, and making the right decisions.
Over 10.000 scientists from 153 countries together decided to offer the following environmental solution.
Almost all politics forget the most important aspect: People.
Numerous options to apply our newest technologies to renewable resources like solar, wind, water, or geothermal. We can no longer reverse the human impact on nature. The average temperature on our planet has increased by 0.9 degrees since 1880, and more than two-thirds of the growth has occurred in the last 50 years. The primary source of anthropogenic influence on the climate is greenhouse gas emissions, particularly carbon dioxide. As the dynamics of the 20th-century show, the only things that reduce emissions for a short period are economic crises, epidemics, and wars. Emission reductions occurred during World War I and World War II, the Great Depression of the 1930s, and the energy crisis of the 1970s. The last time emissions fell was during the global economic crisis of 2008-2009. But in each of these periods, as soon as the situation returned to normal, the curve continued to climb. And this is also what we saw in 2020 when global economic activity and greenhouse gas emissions went down dramatically.
We have been warned of what is happening and what to watch out for. How? By nature – pandemics, increased earthquakes, waterflooding, and similar disasters are nature’s ways to keep the balance. And as we can see, it’s bringing people to be more concerned about the environment. The climate change deniers are significantly diminishing. As shops and services have closed during the lockdown, people started to get out more into the countryside. And they discovered how many forests and other green spaces no longer exist and how scarce they are. People are also beginning to focus on being more self-sufficient because they saw how easily imports of goods could stop during a pandemic. The lockdown has given people more time to reflect on their current way of life.
The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) declared that humanity had exploited our planet in many ways and that we must make our relationship symbiotic. The global economy is slowly but steadily beginning to turn towards an ecological agenda to become an eco-economy. It is still unclear how much the necessary changes will cost and how much money and resources we will lose in the future if we don’t do something right now. However, already now, environmental awareness is becoming an urgent issue for many corporations. And the green economy could be the leading industry of the coming decade, attracting investments, start-ups, and significant technological breakthroughs. Generation Z, born between 2001 and today, represents about a third of the world’s population. While millennials were characterized by a “here and now” lifestyle, Generation Z is concerned about the future. Their attitude to themselves and the world around them is more practical. They care about the future in all aspects, including environmental ones – what will happen to nature and the climate if the current economic and political trend continues.
Coronavirus Spells the End of the Neoliberal Era. What’s Next? Coronavirus is a political crucible, melting down and reshaping current norms. Will the new era be a “Fortress Earth” or a harbinger of a transformed society based on a new set of values? Whatever you might be thinking about the long-term impacts of the coronavirus epidemic, you’re probably not thinking big enough. Our lives have been reshaped so dramatically in the past year that it’s difficult to see beyond the next news cycle. But, in the same way, that Covid-19 is spreading at an exponential rate, we also need to think exponentially about its long-term impact on our culture and society. A year or two from now, the virus itself will likely become a manageable part of our lives — effective treatments will emerge, and a vaccine will be available. But the impact of coronavirus on our global civilization will only just be unfolding. The massive disruptions we already see in our lives are just the first heralds of a historic transformation in political and societal norms.
If Covid-19 was spreading across a stable and resilient world, its impact could be abrupt but contained. Leaders would consult together; economies disrupted temporarily; people would make do for a while with changed circumstances — and then, after the shock, look forward to getting back to normal. That’s not, however, the world in which we live. Instead, this coronavirus is revealing the structural faults of a system that have been papered over for decades as they’ve been steadily worsening. Gaping economic inequalities, rampant ecological destruction, and pervasive political corruption are all results of unbalanced systems relying on each other to remain precariously poised. Now, as one system destabilizes, expect others to fall in tandem in a cascade known by researchers as “synchronous failure.”
The first signs of this structural destabilization are just beginning to show. Our globalized economy relies on just-in-time inventory for hyper-efficient production. Supply chains are disrupted through factory closures and border closings. This leads to shortages in household items, medications, and food will begin surfacing, leading to rounds of panic buying that will only exacerbate the situation. The world economy is entering a downturn so steep it could exceed the severity of the Great Depression.
We have to make substantial changes to avert catastrophic visions for the future. These include:
And what to do with the insufficiency of fertile soil? Again, we have the solution for this. We already have farms like Green Sense Farms that grow vegetables in vertical underground plants and simulate the sunlight with special LEDs. These farms use the resources for 90% and allow over 25 yields per year. These types of farms become more and more widespread every year. City type of farming is saving all resources – soil, land, and water as well. The freshwater usage is 90% less than with a conventional farming system. And all this without any problems with parasites and different types of chemicals from oxide pollution. Special sensors control every vegetable and optimally add water and pesticides; moreover, they consume 50% fewer pesticides than farming. We are witnesses of the new farming revolution. But there is also one weakness. Such vertical farms need a very high energy volume comparing to conventional farms, which get light directly from the Sun. Here we need to power lights with electricity sources. But suppose we solve the sustainable energy problem. In that case, these farms can be a solution to feed all the population with sufficient and healthy food.
We also have genetic engineering that’s pretty advanced with the analysis of the different vegetables to give a better yield with the same volume of resources to grow. On many plants like corn or wheat, we have already succeeded in increasing the volume of yield twice. If we talk about meat production, one of the primary sources of CO2, we already have many alternatives available. For example, in laboratories, animal cells are placed into a bioreactor and grow into meat. With the same taste, the same caloric value, without a side effect like parasites or medicine we are getting into our bodies from conventional breeding. All this without even killing animals. Selling meat from bioreactors in restaurants globally is in the plans of many companies. These technologies are processing huge fundings to develop the highest quality in conditions possible to replicate in every country. Such methods will free a lot of farming land. For example, in the USA, 70% of vegetables are produced for feeding animals and produce meat. If we look at problems globally, we will notice that almost 90% of the land is used for growing food for industrial animals. Moreover, a movement to alternative meat production and decreasing traditional animal farming may reduce the CO2 in the atmosphere by 90%. We can produce much more vegetable food on the free land, giving us some more time to feed the population during human education without destroying the planet.
And what to do with water? These days, the world working over the 13.000 water plants produce about 45 billion liters daily. These days it is still pretty expensive to transform seawater into freshwater. Only in high-economic countries like Saudi Arabia, 70% of the freshwater is obtained from the seawater’s transformation. But as we can learn from history, we can expect that technologies for transforming saltwater into freshwater become cheaper in the future. Company Lux Research performed a study stating that by 2050, we should trice water stations because of a growing population which will reach almost ten billion people. It’s pretty tricky but not impossible. We have enough human and physical resources to build these stations and secure freshwater, even for desert African countries. If we can utilize our seas as a resource and transform seawater into freshwater, we can shut this problem forever. Water in the ocean will not get exhausted even if we consume 100 times more water than we are now.
Education is becoming one of the leading elements in geopolitics, the economic strategy of states, and an intellectual and cultural factor in the development of human civilization. During the past twenty years, many experiments were executed, legal and illegal, to control population expansion. With the growth of knowledge of the population and understanding life’s value, such methods became ridiculous and unacceptable for the world community. That’s why we have to find a different way to control population growth.
One of the methods is the increasing status of women, their education, and diversifying women’s placement in the critical government and science positions. The past experiments were showing that the education of women is one of the effective methods. Statistics say that when a woman is better educated, she is more interested in having a small family with only one or two children. When girls are getting a school education, they are often getting married much later than non-educated girls. On average, they are getting married in the 25th year of life. On the other side, those who don’t get an education and do not visit the school already have 2-3 children at the age of 25. In 2010 in Kerala, India, women got married in their 28th year of life thanks to the tradition of female education. On average, they had one child. Simultaneously, in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, or Bihar, a local woman got married on average in the 18th year of life. Based on the India example, it is unnecessary to apply aggressive policies to manage the population, but it can be manageable via education. In a world where women have access to education and can self-control their lives, people are getting smarter and dying later.
With the population growing question, we are getting statistics signals that stabilization has already started. In the last 50 years, the speed of population growth has slowed down a bit. Globally, the volume of children per woman decreased from 4,5 in 1970 to 2,5 in 2000. These days in the USA, Europe, China, even in a few states of India, it is less than 2. Moreover, the fertility rate should not increase above 2.1 in order to stop the population growth. Also, in a few countries in Africa, we can note the decreasing birth rate trend with the population’s increasing education level. Many African women stop on 4 children compared to the situation 20 years ago when it was 6. The further steps of African citizens will probably go in the same way as the USA and Europe already passed and will give birth to fewer and fewer children. The prediction says that by 2050, the population level will reach a peak of 9.5 billion people. And it will be maximum. Due to the higher education level of the population, the population growth will stop, and we will decrease the volume to 8 billion by 2100. But with a better-educated population, we will struggle with another problem.
A more educated population creates a more comfortable environment for themselves and starts to consume more. A bit tricky, isn’t it? That’s why, along with higher education, we have to think about the culture of moderate consumption. That’s not a simple task. Many raise the question of why population growth occurred in the past 200 years, even in countries with higher economic progress and higher education levels. The answer is simple. The population growth was caused not by the volume of births but by decreasing the number of death cases. Improvement of global health, food, physical infrastructure, and decrement of crimes had a strong and positive impact on the duration of human life. So, it happens that more people were born and older people didn’t die. That’s why we became so populated.
Generally, we don’t need to be afraid of over-population because we already have technologies that can help us survive healthily and with the necessary comfort level. But what we should be afraid of is the current direction of the civilization managed by corporations, advertisement’s sociology project that leads people to consume. That’s a more complex problem, as people themselves cannot impact elite groups’ greed. Why? Because of the economic system.
I have thought about the optimal scenario based on increasing the world population’s education level while running today’s existing technology and evolution processes. Although, I am convinced that the only value that humans can make for themselves, for the Universe, or for getting answers to the purpose of life is only our knowledge. That’s it. Nobodies, not buildings, materials, minerals, or anything touchable around us. Knowledge is something that is moving us forward, and we evolve thanks to knowledge only. We do not grow because of getting skills, winning wars, driving economics, or managing processes. We grow where we are only because of knowledge, inventions, and thinking about the unimaginable.
I believe that a certain space is a Source of information transmitted to our three-dimensional world. To fully understand and use this mechanism, a man should learn to communicate with this global information field and implement necessary information retrieved from there on Earth in the form of knowledge and inventions. And in this way, man could play the role of a conductor of ideas from that space of “Higher Intelligence”.
In this way, the human brain could “process” the sent information and “create” new ways of thinking similar to those obtained from the Source. In other words, to expand the limits of cognition and imagination and “create” new technologies. Although it is possible to suppose that everything already exists in that space, and we just have to see it, transfer, and recreate it on the material level in our material world. I do not doubt that the Cosmos is united in a material and spiritual sense.
I suppose that it is the synergy that may be the key to understanding digital and spiritual energy’s symbiosis. Synergy and singularity symbiosis would provide the greatest possible unlocking of humanity’s shared spiritual and digital knowledge potential. To start executing the very long path of integrating synergy and singularity, we need to accomplish a long story about transforming civilization from consumption-based to education-based.
Let me add, and this is no longer “terra incognita”, that everywhere around us, here and in space, everything is filled with energy, a vast ocean of energy giving us strength, inspiration, and inexhaustible knowledge. And if we consider our mind, memory, and movement as feedback processes and understand how to work with them correctly, it would be possible to receive Energy directly from the air. So the challenge before us is enormous – to figure out how to extract this energy.
Some time ago, it was discovered by geophysicists studying magnetic anomalies that very powerful currents of an unknown nature were flowing between the ionosphere and the Earth’s globe. In this regard originated a hypothesis that superconducting channels, along which these currents move, literally envelope the Earth like a spider’s web. Thus, the entire cosmos acts solely on the principle of coordinated vibrations and resonances based on a common natural law that eliminates time and distance. Let’s assume that with the help of these channels, it would be possible to connect to the universal informational field or so-called energy-informational field of the Universe and retrieve from there the necessary information for its embodiment here in the form of knowledge and inventions.
By studying the brain activity of hypersensitive people, scientists learned to use instruments to detect the moment when their consciousness enters particular states, known as altered mental states (AMS). These states can arise spontaneously or be induced consciously by special psychotechnics, herbal or chemical means. In AMS, there are no limitations, i.e., the person is transported into other dimensions, appears in the past and the future… Suppose that through some chip connected to the human’s brain, it is possible to reach AMS and thus to connect to the energy-information field of the Universe. Thus, the human brain is seen as a receiving device for receiving structured waves from the Cosmos.
Historically, the outstanding role of cities in the spatial organization of the state is to create reference points for the spatial development of the economy. Why do businesses and society need smart cities? It’s about transformation and sustainability. A smart city is a city that uses technology to improve and transform the lives of its citizens and the environment while reducing the digital divide and allowing businesses to thrive and innovate. It is the idea of inclusiveness, not separation, a collaboration between citizens and the public and private sectors for sustainable transformation and growth.
All existing concepts and definitions of the smart city emphasize different aspects of the functioning of the urban ecosystem, focusing on the development of information technology, transportation, and telecommunications infrastructure. Smart city systems provide collection, storage, and processing of received data. It allows forecasting the development of situations and behavior of individual infrastructure objects, technical systems, and the city in general as a global distributed multi-level system. Solutions based on the application of information technologies aimed at increasing economic efficiency and the standard of living of citizens with minimum consumption of resources and harm to the environment will be essential for the life support of megacities.
The current phenomenon of technological development in the form of digital expansion gives us an understanding of digitalization. In this case, we are witnessing the spread of the influence of digitally transformed data over the entire area of traditional lifestyles, economic relations, the structural architecture of civilization, etc. In a relatively short time compared to humankind’s existence, the conventional static type of worldview has been almost entirely replaced by a more dynamic, multidimensional one. There has been fantastic progress in artificial intelligence, human-computer integration, and digitalization, which leads to singularity. The amplification of intelligence in digital format can lead to strong positive feedback. In a relatively short period of time, the existing world will be more transformed than we can imagine. That is, the more intelligent systems once created by humans will make even better systems.
Nelson Mandela, who became South Africa’s first post-apartheid president, once said: “Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”
Education is a social institution through which people are taught basic academic knowledge, learning skills, and cultural norms. Every nation has some form of an education system, but they are not the same everywhere. The major factors affecting education systems are the resources and money used to support those systems. Based on this, a country’s wealth directly links with the amount of money spent on education. Another factor is the value placed on education, the amount of time devoted to it, and education distribution within a country.
The global concern within education is universal access, meaning equal ability to participate in an education system. To this day, access to education is difficult for specific groups based on class or gender. But what does ‘educational equality’ mean anyway? Everyone should have the same opportunities in life without being discriminated against because of social background, gender, religion, or age. But the real world rarely lives up to those ideals. The idea of equality has brought immense change across the globe within a few centuries, but educational equality remains an issue. Raise people’s expectations lies at the beginning of solving the education problem. The more people demand the right to an education, the more governments will take notice and include it in their laws. As it’s undeniable that education benefits the economy, governments have ample reasons to invest in it. Humanitarian motivations are not the main factor for a government to invest in; economic interests usually play a significant role. When supporting talented students, business and politics think about it in the long term. Upon graduation, the most successful would later fill top positions.
What happens when everyone is educated the same way? It is also necessary to look critically at such an issue as who benefits when children are educated the same way. Will children in rural Bolivia be able to do the same things with their western education as children in a wealthy neighborhood in Morocco? The concept of factory schooling is easy to implement, but the outcome is not always what is being expected. Less than 10% of people succeed in having perspective professions. But how many engineers, doctors, and bankers does a community need? Today’s education of the masses does not provide an option for the 90% that are now forgotten. With decisions about education being made on an international level, understanding those in need and helping them is impossible. Globalization — this term was first used to explain growing intertwined economies and now is applied to everything in our daily lives and has affected how we educate every person in this world. And this topic is perhaps a remarkably subtle and important one that requires serious reflection.
In the 21st century, technology knows no limits. We are in the phase of radical development where technology is taking over every niche and corner. Smartphones, laptops, and tablets are no more unknown words. The education system is evolving and improving, as it cannot stay the same as designed many years ago. We cannot teach our children the way we were taught without depriving them of their tomorrow. Using digitization in the current educational system is the way to go. Unfortunately, many people still see digitalization as a threat rather than an opportunity. That’s why it is necessary to provide comprehensive information about ed-tech.
The digital revolution has touched almost every aspect of our lives. More than 3.5 billion people have access to the Internet, and more than 5 billion are estimated to have some mobile device, with half of them being smartphones. Therefore, it is no wonder that these digital transformation trends have also heavily impacted the education industry. Now we are just beginning to understand how digital tools can facilitate personalized learning and individualized support. Once we’ll do, it will benefit everyone. Digitalization provides a valuable opportunity to combat inequality in education. Today half of the planet’s population is unconnected. The rise in digital literacy, together with the imminent period of rapid digitalization of the economy, means that ensuring fair and equal access to both education and future job markets will rest on the extent of digital inclusion within our societies.
One of the most inspiring digital transformation trends visible in education is the improved accessibility to school, lessons, and even degree programs for people of all ages. Technology can help to remove barriers for those having trouble accessing certain types of information. Students with visual or audio challenges and reading disabilities can benefit from text-to-speech programs and programs that transcribe dictated content that allow them to learn and earn degrees. Accessibility and access also continue to improve from a geographic perspective thanks to technology. Online learning opportunities enable students to access schools and degree programs that might not be local to them. Their immediate geographical area no longer limits students to secure the best possible education for their given situation. Personalized learning approaches have also been an essential component of the digital education revolution. The cloud offers us the chance to connect from virtually anywhere, so basically, anyone can follow a course while sitting in a lecture hall, being home, or anywhere else. Students from a wide range of backgrounds have more access to classes and educational opportunities thanks to these types of programs.
Today, the following important point is that technology plays a much more significant role in the quality and scope of how we learn and what we learn, with a growing emphasis on programming and robotics. The changes which are happening today show the disparity between the developed and undeveloped world. If you are not connected, that shows you the leap you have to make between the connectivity aspect, access to education, and benefits derived from that. Closing this digital divide, with those not connected or not considered digitally literate, is imperative to ensuring a fair distribution of digital opportunities across countries, locations, gender, socioeconomic status, and age. Giving people access to the right type of content is one aspect of education digitalization. Another equally critical aspect is the human element. People will constantly require engagement and inspiration from mentors who know about the topic. Technology will never be able to replace this interaction, even in the digital age. But it can serve as an increasingly innovative medium for interactions, where one can transfer knowledge, expertise, and skills in real-time, without the restriction of physical boundaries named Internet of Skills. We must change not only what we learn but also how we learn. Whether this involves digital platforms, virtual or augmented reality, online libraries, or webinars – digital media make possible a host of new and innovative forms of education.
It is essential to collect information about students, including their demographics, grades, and classes. Big data provides the opportunity to take this information much further and use it to better understand student trends and successes. Big data refers to the growing technological capabilities to track large amounts of data and interpret it with algorithms’ assistance to find patterns and helpful information. This includes the convergence of a variety of different sources of data. Schools may have previously gathered a wide range of useful information about students. Still, it was accessible only to the particular person or department who collected the data. This fact made it harder to put the information in context and understand everything it could tell the school about the educational experiences they provide. By using these data, schools might find that they have a better chance of building a thorough understanding of their students and degree programs.
Using the data compiled and analyzed through big data capabilities can tell schools helpful information, such as where students struggle and thrive in their programs. Further, they can then uncover any particular patterns about the students that excel in specific areas and improve the learning experience. They can track more significant trends in student populations, including student performance and professional outcomes. The better they understand how their degrees impact their students, the easier it will be for them to improve the education and resources they offer. And in its turn, this might help students thrive after graduation. The information collected will empower schools to serve their students better. It can impact the types of personalized learning opportunities offered, the structure of classes, and the students’ resources and support. The shift towards a digital, modern world has had a measurable impact on education’s inner workings. Schools of all levels have begun to realize that this technology can offer them many benefits and new strategies for educating their students.
Digital learning involves more than just digitizing traditional education materials. Using digital media in education will result in entirely new areas of communication, cooperation, and networking. Digital instruction is more flexible, mobile, and individualized than traditional learning methods as it is not bound by time and place. The digital era allows to create, share with others, and develop course materials together in the cloud. With digital instruction, people accept greater personal responsibility while also improving communication and teamwork. Even if complete education digitization does change the education system, it is not diminishing the old-time education value. The digitization of education combines the aspects of both educations. Digitization in education has also proved to be the proper method for saving resources with lesser paper usage. We might say that nowadays, education digitization is overall beneficial to our society.
We agreed that it is possible to execute it via an existing political system structure. The only necessary thing is to motivate these elites to accept the education-based strategy. At the current moment, their motivation is still consumption-oriented – globalization of business industries, more totalistic system, more power. It is a necessary action to step up closer to the new system strategy.
How should we start the system transformation? Should we go into some details? It’s probably something where we are not authorized to go into details, as we don’t know the facts; we just assume the corporation-based economics system principles – elites.
Translated from Greek, oligarchy means the power of the few. Contrasting oligarchy with democracy, the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle considered it a degenerate form of aristocracy. If we turn to history, the most real oligarchs were the famous “robber barons” in the United States. This is how the New York Times called new American businessmen back in the 1850s; the metaphor referred to the medieval knights who charged tolls for passage past their castles on the Rhine banks. They were the first oligarchs. The nickname stuck and “robber barons” are now called those who in the 19th century created massive industrial and transport empires.
What is power in general and the power of the oligarchs in particular? Let’s take the classical definition of the well-known sociologist Max Weber. Power is any possibility, no matter what it is based on, of realizing one’s own will in a given social relation, even against opposition. Of course, the oligarchs have the means at their disposal to exercise their power. These are mainly economic means, the power of money or the power over minds, possible through the mass media at the oligarchs’ disposal. As the economy stabilizes and the legal system strengthens, oligarchs become what prominent businessmen should be in a developed democratic society.
Oligarchs can be classified as a functional economic and financial elite, which develops gradually and assumes essential social system functions. Economically the oligarchs are extremely useful. The following little analysis may convince you of this. Basically, the “robber barons” made their fortunes operating the railroads, and the successful development of this industry would have been impossible without government subsidies and free land distributions. Accordingly, the railroads’ first owners made enormous profits (the so-called monopoly rent) from their privileged position.
The exploitation of natural resources and associated rents is the primary source of oligarchic capital worldwide. A number of oligarchs also emerged from people who took possession of large enterprises and invested a lot of money. These investments were very significant by any standards. And in the end, it turned out that only the oligarchs could breathe new life into these companies. As time has shown, giant enterprises can have big problems without the influence of oligarchs when it comes to development. The problem is that the oligarchs spend enormous sums of money trying to secure the rights to the property they own as much as possible, thereby spawning corruption.
The best way to counter this process is to guarantee everyone, including the oligarchs, the inviolability of their property rights. The possible negative public reaction to such a decision could be partially mitigated by imposing additional taxes on the oligarchs or forcing them to donate substantial funds to charitable causes. In the end, the choice to accept or not the oligarchs belongs to the realm of pure ideology. Can we accept the existence of the very rich?
The inextricable connection between wealth and power, economy and politics, has always existed. In fact, with the development of the economy, this connection provided the opportunity to increase the military and political influence of any state. The intended political system (with all nations united) must have an innovative base, i.e., one that seriously improves the effectiveness of the current system and is oriented towards the social development of society.
We will take as a base a group of 250 powerful people, which can provide the internal demand in all business sectors and industry branches. A further structuring of the governance system is as follows: the level in the management system consists of 30 main Industries and 250 Business Sectors. For each sector, 3 high-level managers with high IQ, organization/planning, and executive abilities. It is essential to have equal quotas for men and women in this group. It would be without doubt oligarchs who, on the one hand, have power and unlimited financing and, on the other hand, have the need to move from the level of super consumption to the level of philanthropy, to invest their power and potential for the good of civilization. The given number of 840 people (250 x 3 and 30 x 3) is optimal for executing the strategy developed by the leading group of oligarchs.
If we look at the socialist system as progressive for all humankind, then we must talk about uniting the countries. Indeed, only people, enterprises, or governments united by a common goal can address collective tasks in a coordinated way. It is only by coordinating the activities of the participants in a single technological cycle that complex outputs can be produced. Nothing great can be accomplished without a united effort: building the common welfare, protecting the environment, solving military conflicts, and fighting epidemics, for example. Crowning this system would be one person, the smart king/queen. I see this person as a highly educated visionary with human empathy for humanity’s problems and as an asexual neutral person. Also, he/she will offer an individual a set of values, emotional orientations, rules, and standards of behavior which can become the means of achieving social peace.
The smart king/queen can be considered the one who has a surplus of the most essential vital resources such as time, energy, status, and money. Between the excess of ideas and energy, there has to be some mechanism that would bring these two factors into balance and be useful in the three fields of human activity: usefulness for oneself, usefulness for society, and usefulness for Heaven (God-given value). It isn’t easy to achieve all three types of usefulness, but this would be the privilege that would give the key to a long-term smart king/queen status. At this point, I cannot answer where he/she will come from, but I do know that he/she will arrive (be born or raised) in a renewed, creative society.
Describing the current world – typical executive personalities
In today’s world, with the development of business relations in any sphere of human activity and digital technology development, recruiting and using people with a specific type of character is an interesting practice. For any struggling organization, it makes sense to hire a psychopathic executive as a temporary crisis manager. Psychopathic people can take risks in a cold-blooded manner and remain calm even under tremendous pressure. The determining factor of success of such employees is intellect: a more intellectually developed psychopath can partially compensate for character defects, such as lack of empathy, and make them work for themselves in the long run.
I will pass lightly over three elements of the so-called “dark triad”. Machiavellianism is the tendency to cynical manipulation; Narcissism, also known as heightened egocentrism; and Psychopathy, a combination of impulsive behavior and callousness. In contrast to mental deviations and diseases, these three traits are common and not as noticeable. One of these traits often prevails. Psychopaths are generally harmless, and only some deviations distinguish them from the average citizen. Some scientific work has demonstrated that moderate and high levels of Machiavellianism are combined with the highest rates of loyalty and fellowship in the organization. Perhaps the reason is that Machiavellians have good networking skills and can find common ground with superiors. Numerous studies have shown that psychopathy is somewhat more common among top managers than among the rest of the population.
Of course, the common perception of many forms of psychopathy is that they are antisocial personality disorders because immoral patterns of behavior characterize people with such conditions. They are incapable of feeling compassion for others or guilt for immoral acts and offenses. Psychopaths perceive life as a kind of game in which the main thing is to achieve success at others’ expense while maintaining cold blood and indifference. But herein lies the paradoxical value of having this characteristic in a person combined with high intelligence as certain career advantages. A quarter of all psychopathic bosses are women.
The proportion of psychopathic personalities is significantly higher than the statistical average among the big bosses, be they chiefs of concerns, heads of departments, influential politicians, trade union leaders, or the army’s leadership. However, it is not evident because many typical psychopathic personality traits have long been perceived as qualities inherent in a leader. Quite often, psychopaths end up in leadership positions as they are highly charismatic personalities. They are charming, give the impression of being brilliant and resourceful people, easily win others’ sympathy, know how to convince interlocutors, and enthuse them with their ideas. When we notice all these qualities in someone, we perceive them as a good leader! Moreover, this circumstance explains that psychopaths often manage to make a successful career, surpassing all their coworkers.
So, competition is becoming increasingly fierce everywhere, and in this context, uncertainty is growing in companies. This is why companies are no longer just looking for a manager who knows his job well but for a visionary leader capable of inspiring the whole team with his ideas. Instead, they expect a miracle and place extremely high demands on him: he must have virtues that ordinary people do not have. Because of these requirements, psychopaths rush to these firms. Their self-confidence and self-esteem are limitless. And the company’s upper management wants very much to believe that such outstanding employees, demonstrating exceptional achievements, really exist. Clinical psychologist Oliver James, in his book “Office Politics: How to Thrive in a World of Lying, Backstabbing, and Dirty Tricks”, suggests that in today’s global economy, elements of behavior are inherent to this dark triad are increasingly required for success.
There is a lighter side to their personality in addition to the darker one. One study that examined the coincidence of positive and negative qualities found that possessors of the dark triad traits are usually also characterized by extraversion, curiosity, openness to new ideas and experiences, and self-esteem. In addition, the dark triad’s characteristics increase the level of rivalry in the organization, if only to the detriment of cooperation and mutual assistance. Finally, some studies have proven that psychopaths and Machiavellians can threaten and seduce by intimidating opponents and charming bosses. So, in the proposed system arises the need to have psychopathic individuals. I would add that the position of government officials ranks 10th in the career preference ranking of psychopaths. Imagine, in 2014, the UK government decided to hire psychopaths exclusively “to maintain order” because they are “indispensable in crisis situations”, in addition to being “devoid of empathy and restraining moral attitudes, and generally extremely intelligent and logical.”
Should society provide every citizen with a basic income, no strings attached? Should a UBI be a central element of strategies for transformation? My answer is a strong affirmative. I see a Universal Basic Income as a cornerstone of a transformed economy within an Ecological Civilization: one that is life-affirming rather than wealth-affirming. Even more fundamentally, UBI has the potential to shift underlying mainstream misconceptions about human nature. The dominant contract between capital and labor has reified the idea that humans are essentially selfish and lazy. Hence they must be forced to work by combining fear and greed, effectuated by wages and other monetary “incentives.” In fact, people have a fundamental need to engage in a meaningful livelihood and feel valued by their community. Work is not something people try to avoid; on the contrary, purposeful work is an integral part of human flourishing. If people were liberated by UBI from the daily necessity to sell their labor for survival, they would reinvest their time in crucial parts of the economy that, as Kate Raworth outlines in Doughnut Economics, have mostly been hidden from view—the household and the commons. They would care for loved ones, build community, and dare to do whatever it is that inspires them. The domination of the economy by the market would inevitably decline while those other, life-affirming sectors would be strengthened.
From a values perspective, UBI elevates the principles of trust and fairness as organizing structures of society while eclipsing the ethic of cynicism that dominates our market-oriented system. Morally, UBI recognizes a precept of human history that has long been ignored—that the overwhelming proportion of wealth available to modern humans results from the cumulative ingenuity and perseverance of prior generations going back to earlier times, including such fundamentals as language, cultural traditions, and scientific knowledge. Once we realize the vastness of the cumulative common resources that our ancestors have bequeathed to us, it transforms our conception of wealth and value. The widespread view is that an entrepreneur who becomes a billionaire deserves his wealth. The reality is that whatever value he created is a pittance compared to the immense bank of prior knowledge and social practices – the commonwealth – that he took from. Many structural changes are required to shift our society’s disastrous trajectory and replace our wealth-based, growth-addicted civilization with a genuinely ecological one. A UBI, by itself, would not be nearly enough, but in my view, it is one of the essential cornerstones of a future that fosters sustainable human flourishing on a regenerated living Earth.
To make significant progress toward sustainable development, it is necessary to undergo a fundamental transformation of governance structures, economic systems, business, and human behavior. Such changes are real, and with their implementation come enormous opportunities for progressive people, companies, and countries that can make this transformation sustainable.
The overwhelming proportion of wealth available to modern humans results from the cumulative ingenuity and perseverance of prior generations going back to earlier times, including such fundamentals as language, cultural traditions, and scientific knowledge.

The widespread view is that an entrepreneur who becomes a billionaire deserves his wealth. The reality is that whatever value he created is a pittance compared to the immense bank of prior knowledge and social practices – the commonwealth – that he took from.
Financial power is now concentrated in the hands of a small group of people and companies. A significant emphasis on global transformation is the billionaire’s motivation to transform their participation in creating a new world. Possessing virtually unlimited financial capital as such is no longer enough to satisfy any of their needs; money is insufficient for them. They aspire to absolute power as well. The only necessary thing is to motivate these elites to adopt the same strategy. That is, they can realize their power and strength by investing in the development of global education, powerfully supporting the development of science, and the introduction of new technologies based on digital knowledge. The centralization of the economy and business, in this case, is inevitable, which will lead to losses in small businesses. But overcoming the crisis should be effectively supported by the elites. Because then it will be possible to manage everything from above, intelligently integrating digital technology into everyday life by digitizing everything. Digitization is the trending term, describing the 21st century in the most precise manner possible. To not make small businesses and small manufacturing directly related to cultural traditions disappear, we have to be careful not to let history and tradition die.
Let’s turn our attention to the importance of focusing on our spiritual journey and the opportunity to change the point of view on the continuing path of one’s development.
Perspective has many definitions, such as understanding what is essential and what isn’t and the capacity to view things in their proper relationship or relative importance. Take, for example, the golf ball. For years, golf balls were smooth little orbs that all the serious golfers used. But in one foursome, a young golfer who couldn’t afford to replace the golf balls when they got a little beat up kept playing with them long after his companions would have discarded them. The others noticed that even though his skills were no match for theirs, his drives always flew further and more accurately. From their perspectives, that should not have happened, given their superior experience. Their only explanation could be the nicks and dings on the golf balls. Modern golf balls now have as many as 450 dimples. That is because the rough spots enhance the ball’s accuracy and distance. Let’s take advantage of the rough spots you encounter, for they can indeed sharpen your perspective. Those rough spots often force us to look at other options, to see things from another perspective. They challenge our primitive vision and open new doors.
Thus, in each point of space and time, various information representations of many objects intersect. Hence, each point contains information about all space-time as a whole. In this regard, the question of the possibility to “connect” to this world’s information storage becomes relevant. How exactly will human consciousness be connected to the energy-information field of the Universe? Once again, we are back to the only instrument that will allow connecting to the “library” – the human soul. The process of interaction between the soul and the external field is a natural phenomenon that we can usually observe to a greater or lesser degree both in our own lives and in the life of any other human being. For example, intuition, ideas, sudden insights, and inspiration result from unconscious, involuntary interaction of the soul with this field. With the help of specific techniques, the simplest of which are meditation, mantra reading, trance, and hypnosis sessions, a voluntary, conscious connection to the library is possible. This field can serve as a source for inventions, discoveries, and works in any area of creativity, be it science or the arts.
At all times, the human mind has sought to organize phenomena into a unified picture of the world, to comprehend the laws of development of matter. At present, humankind has come closer to the questions of man’s relationship with the Cosmos, the evolution of the Universe. For what purpose? All this testifies that human consciousness has reached a new level of global in its scale understanding of the unity of all existing. This approach became possible since the 20th century gave a new perspective on the very process of creative life. Today, the possibility of creating any undertaking as business, scientific invention, or artistic work is interpreted as a dialogue, a creative synergy of the man with the Cosmos.
It is essential to focus on transforming the strategy of education. And changes in depopulation will occur in the initial, first stage of strategy implementation, even at the current level of consumption. In parallel, it will be possible to begin a fundamental change in the consumption system.
The changes will primarily affect advertising. The prohibition of advertising sounds very dramatic! But there is a need to involve the media in complete propaganda for changing the human mindset about the consumption of goods. Activate filters on explicit and implicit advertising, that is, on the currently popular Influencers, whose sole job is to boost consumerism, and on bloggers. This strategy of banning consumer advertising will be under the control of the present oligarchs, say the Top 50 powerful people. They are no longer interested in the consumption aspect of life since they have had enough of it, and it has allowed them to rise above consumption. Instead, they are interested in power, authority, and the real economy. And by starting to promote propaganda aimed at changing consumption, they end up consolidating their influence and power. Yes, collateral damage, such as the death of small businesses, cannot be avoided in this process. But out of that will arise the increasing impact of big, centralized business, which will provide more significant benefits than the collateral disadvantages. So we’re getting closer to smart city enterprises. Look at the fact that behind all this is a ban on advertising consumption!
Presumed ideology is directed towards the level of human development and quality of life, based on acquired knowledge rather than consumption policy. In society, the competition of human values and the creation and efficient use of the educational system is taking over. The path of learning becomes critical in building a new economy, where the emphasis is not so much on material goods and services as on innovative development and intellectual capacity.
The assessment of the modern pandemic varies from one person to another: some think it is just a disease, and the statistics are embellished, and the point is the desire of pharmaceutical companies to increase their profits; others believe that humanity is being prepared for total digital control; others consider that masks have been put on people to instill in their obedience. There are a great number of theories, and many of them seem to be very credible. But practically no one talks about the main cause of the pandemic, yet it exists. A pandemic is not a disease; it is a biotherapy. The question of recovery consists of how much strength the patient has left to survive. As of today, all of humanity is such a patient.
Pandemic has already helped many people. For instance, it helped those undecided about their profession. Now, with experience, one knows which profession is significant for humanity and which is good only at a certain time. The pandemic has changed people’s consciousness, increased the level of intuitive perception, and made it possible to distinguish dishonesty from the truth. It strengthened harmonious relationships in families and destroyed those that were fictitious partnerships. Like a good trainer, the pandemic has made us scan all those who intrude into our personal space uninvited. Most importantly, it has trained our empathy, which now allows us to rebuild this world not only as we see fit, but considering the opinions of others!
Pandemics’ global goal is to change the genetics of the human population. It is realistic to assume there will be a mutation afterward. Not in the form of a change in any external traits, but in the form of a change in the world’s perception by the descendants of the survivors. Once introduced into the human body, a virus performs specific work aimed at changing genetics. Humanity evolves through empathy! How can we protect ourselves from epidemics and pandemics in the future? As humans, perfection is available to us as a harmony of the true, the good, and the beautiful. Perfection appears in three projections: to the mind, it is given as objective truth, to the free will as good, to the contemplation as beauty. These three images of the same are first conceived in the loving heart. Because the perfect content is known in the same perfect way, by love. Conscience evaluates thoughts and deeds in terms of proper perfection. A loving heart, creative contemplation, reason, and conscience are essential to a person’s moral immunity.
Today, society is in a deep crisis caused by the transition from an industrial to an informational society. Moreover, humanity has found itself in a situation of living in two forms of reality: a new form, virtual, has been added to the natural one that has been characteristic of the entire period of human history. The Internet, without which no processes of modern society are conceivable, and the media are directly and indirectly changing or contributing to humanity itself. We are witnessing the inclusion of knowledge and information among the primary productive and economic resources, and we are seeing the increasing socio-cultural dynamics of human problems in the new society. It is impossible to imagine today without the media and their influence on each and every one of us. Media education has already acquired the status of a socio-cultural phenomenon, capable of fulfilling the role of sociology and thereby analyzing the structures of social relations as they emerge in the course of social interaction. Moreover, media education is actively emerging as a new pedagogical field. Today we are confronted with various processes aimed at changing and modernizing the established standards of different spheres of social development. And propaganda is taking the lead.
According to GfK Consumer Life research, globally, 46% of consumers say they are willing to pay for a product that makes their life easier. And manufacturers are meeting them halfway, releasing new upgrades of devices. But is life getting easier?
Technological expansion is happening all too quickly, changing human perceptions of the world. During the twentieth century, humanity became convinced of the destructive power of technology. Accidents, man-made and environmental disasters provoked an increase in the number of people experiencing irrational fear or anxiety about the consequences of technological inventions. While people experienced religious awe of the unknown in the past, now technology falls into the category of danger. Some people like to be afraid, and even more so, to frighten those around them. Perhaps this explains the popularity of horror movies, including dystopias depicting a world of humans enslaved by machines. The number of frightening news reports has also increased considerably.
It is a fact that people willingly believe fake scoops. The news needs to be catchy and terrifying. And it has to be credible. Often people simply do not have the time, energy, or desire to find out whether or not it is true. But one has enough strength to begin to worry, to feel anxiety, and, as a consequence, to commit reckless acts. Nevertheless, suppose one treats incoming data with a certain amount of skepticism, checks the information, uses the knowledge obtained in school in everyday life, and trusts technology development. In that case, it is possible to reduce these fears to a minimum.
The story of how Nathan Rothschild made a fortune from Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo on June 18, 1815, became well known. At the beginning of the battle, Napoleon had the advantage, and observers reported to London that he was winning. But Prussian corps came to the aid of the British troops, and the Allies were victorious. Rothschild’s courier observed the outcome of the battle and saw Napoleon escape. Then immediately for a large sum of money persuaded a fisherman, despite the storm, to ferry him across the English Channel.
Rothschild was the only one in London who knew of Napoleon’s defeat. Lamenting Napoleon’s successes, he immediately began a massive sale of his stock. All the other stockbrokers immediately followed his example as they decided that the British had lost the battle. At this point, Rothschild’s agents bought up the stock cheaply. And only three days later, a report was delivered to the government about Napoleon’s defeat. Thus, Rothschild earned 40 million pounds sterling on this news. The factual information, received before anyone else, allowed the Rothschilds to play a win-win game in the stock market. Then, Nathan Rothschild uttered his legendary aphorism: “Who owns the information, he owns the world.”
The means of communication are a kind of social code for the civilization’s development. Communication has its own laws, the use of which can enhance its effectiveness. Therefore, it is no coincidence that many people fear that certain forces are actively influencing society, manipulating explicit or implicit propaganda elements. Financial means more and more determining the actions of today’s mouthpieces, thus determining the direction and content of information flows. A serious advantage of so-called information weapons over other types is their relative cheapness. And according to the criterion “effectiveness – cost,” it significantly wins. That is why all those who represent the oligarchic power worldwide are interested in mass media to reflect reality from a certain angle. So there is a simple formula at work: whoever controls the distribution of information owns the world. After all, it is not for nothing that the media are called the fourth branch of government, along with the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. With the rapid development of various technologies in communications, the number of mechanisms for acquiring, forming, and presenting the necessary information has increased. All that is needed is the right strategy to present it at each level. Then the feedback will be expected according to the invested efforts and objectives of this or that strategy. Opinion polls are proof of this. In many countries, they have become the most important tool for detecting the public’s mood. In turn, the results of opinion polls are a vital element of propaganda.
The Chinese philosopher Mencius’ key belief was that people are naturally good but that this quality requires improvement and a suitable environment to flourish. The philosopher summarized the four norms created by Confucius on humanity, justice, ritual, and wisdom. While Confucius himself did not explicitly focus on the subject of human nature, Mencius affirmed man’s innate virtue, believing that it was the influence of society in the form of a lack of positive cultivation that causes evil. A sense of sympathy is definitely the beginning of humanity; a sense of shame and dislike is the beginning of righteousness; a sense of deference and yielding is the beginning of propriety; and a sense of right or wrong is the beginning of wisdom.
People have these four principles; to say that they cannot develop them is to destroy themselves. Human nature has an innate tendency toward goodness, but moral rightness cannot be enforced down to the smallest detail. This is why mere external control does not always improve society. Genuine improvement is the result of nurture under favorable conditions. Similarly, a bad environment tends to corrupt human will. This, however, is not proof of innate evil because a clear-thinking person will avoid harming others.
If you let people follow their original feelings, they will be able to do good. This is what is meant by the saying that human nature is good. If a man does evil, it’s not the fault of his natural endowment’. All men, according to Mencius, have a mind which cannot bear to see the suffering of others. For example, if you suddenly see a child about to fall into a well, your first reaction is to save him. You do it out of your original good nature. Suppose a man is constantly subjected to negative influence. In that case, his character is bound to be affected accordingly, despite occasional good education. But that is not his true character or his original nature. His original nature, as Mencius always insists, is good. The evil in him is a result of external influence.
In the case of an individual, his nature is what distinguishes him from the animals. And here, Mencius introduces an idea of his own: for man, nature is perceived by the exhaustive knowledge of the depths of the heart. The heart in Chinese culture is roughly equivalent in meaning to the soul or consciousness. Thus, the philosopher formulated an important idea, which in modern interpretation sounds as follows: nature is a causal factor. But the essence of a person is in the heart, where is the strongest and most important relative guiding principle.
The philosopher argued that to feed someone and not love them is to treat them as pigs. To love but without respect is to bring him up in a beastly way. An animal can also repeat rituals, but without reason and without knowing where they may be compromised. In one fragment, he says that if the son-in-law does not give his hand to his drowning daughter-in-law – the ritual did not allow him to touch the woman – that would be the act of an animal. That is, at specific points, one must turn on the mind and discard unnecessary prohibitions. These prohibitions no longer work in this situation. So Mencius says that there is a proper interrelationship in the heart of man that provides for all these actions – love, care, respect, cognition. This idea of his is called the theory of the goodness of human nature.
It is precisely about how people have always been and continue to be fundamentally compassionate and understanding. As with anything, while seeking the proper form of propaganda, it is essential to strike a balance. As the famous medieval physician, Paracelsus said, “All things are poison and nothing is without poison; only the dose makes a thing, not a poison.” By unleashing an avalanche of incorrect, harmful, or simplified information, it is possible to disrupt the objective perception of the existing severe problem and not achieve the goal. Therefore, the medicine of truth must be given in doses. By increasing a person’s need to learn, change the perspective of the existing problems, thereby starting the mechanism of transformation of the consciousness of being in society. And in the same context to carry out the right propaganda to reduce the level of consumption.
Humanity and other virtues are actually what makes a person truly free because their absence puts him in the position of a slave to other people, while when he has them, he always has the inner freedom that they provide. We have very different aspirations in us, but they have a natural degree of importance and value hierarchy. It is intrinsic to us, and it is in the direction of giving more preference to the virtues, other things being equal. This is why, in general, there are cases when a person gives up his life for the sake of realizing one or another virtue – a duty or a ritual. The natural hierarchy of values can be turned upside down, the philosopher does not argue with this. But even if it is turned upside down for someone, and he is a villain, it only means that he has lost his nature and become a beast. Mencius’ self-improvement is perfection in moral virtues, compassion, concern for the other, love, righteousness, respect, and, ultimately, active zeal.
In numerous propaganda methods, based on my analysis, the only one that’s working the most efficiently with the current level of technology and media is a method called Overton Windows. Overton described a spectrum from “more free” to “less free” with regard to government intervention, oriented vertically on an axis to avoid comparison with the left/right political spectrum. As the spectrum moves or expands, an idea at a given location may become more or less politically acceptable. After Overton’s death, his Mackinac Center for Public Policy colleague Joseph Lehman further developed the idea and named it after Overton.
Political commentator Joshua Treviño has postulated that the six degrees of acceptance of public ideas are as follows:
The Overton Window is an approach to identifying the ideas that define the spectrum of acceptability of governmental policies. Politicians can only act within the acceptable range. Shifting the Overton Window involves proponents of policies outside the window persuading the public to expand the window. Conversely, proponents of current policies, or similar ones within the window, seek to convince people that policies outside it should be deemed unacceptable. According to Lehman, who coined the term, “the most common misconception is that lawmakers themselves are in the business of shifting the Overton window. That is absolutely false. Lawmakers are actually in the business of detecting where the window is, and then moving to be in accordance with it.” Historically we’ve seen the Overton window shift on a range of social issues such as women’s suffrage, abolishing slavery, and the growing acceptance of assisted reproductive technologies.
According to Lehman, the concept is just a description of how ideas work, not advocacy of extreme policy proposals. In an interview with The New York Times, he said, “it just explains how ideas come in and out of fashion, the same way that gravity explains why something falls to the Earth. I can use gravity to drop an anvil on your head, but that would be wrong. I could also use gravity to throw you a life preserver; that would be good.” But since its incorporation in political discourse, others have used the concept of shifting the window to promote ideas outside it, intending to make fringe ideas more acceptable. The “door-in-the-face” technique of persuasion is similar.
In 1998, Noam Chomsky said that the smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion but allow very lively debate within that spectrum—even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on, while all the time, the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.
It is possible to change one’s behavior and make the person agree to something without being in a position of power or authority over the individual. The person is then subject to compliance. To make people comply, we can use different persuasion techniques, as the foot-in-the-door and door-in-the-face. Let’s take a look.
The foot-in-the-door (FITD) technique is a persuasion tactic in which you get a person to agree to a large request by having them agree to a modest demand first. It works by asking for something small, so the agreeing person feels obligated to comply with a more significant request to stay consistent with the original decision to agree. This phenomenon was first examined by Johnathan Freedman and Scott Fraser from Stanford University in 1966, the door-to-door salesman’s peak period. They conducted different studies to prove how a person can be induced to do something he would rather not do. This technique is used in many ways and is a well-researched tactic for getting people to comply with requests. The saying refers to a door-to-door salesperson who keeps the door from shutting with his foot, giving the customer no choice but to listen to the sales pitch. FITD tactics work well in persuading people to comply, especially if the request is pro-social. It works for face-to-face requests and over the computer via e-mail. It can be used in political, commercial, and public awareness environments. Let’s look at some examples.
In a study, observers used this tactic in a bar to increase compliance with the bartender’s request to call a taxi for alcohol‐impaired clients. Half of the randomly selected participants were asked to sign a petition against drunk driving (which they all did); the other half had not. During six weeks, the bartender asked all participants to call a taxi when they became alcohol‐impaired. Those participants who had signed the petition and thus complied with a small request were significantly more likely to comply with the larger request of calling a taxi when impaired. It shows us when someone expresses support for an idea or concept, that person will more likely agree with the second request to stay consistent with their original decision.
Another study, published by Carducci and Deuser (1984), showed that completing a survey about donating organs increased participants’ willingness to become organ donors. Also, the number of questions in the survey did not necessarily affect the desire to become a donor. That is, having a questionnaire alone was enough to increase compliance.
Regarding charitable donations, Schwarzwald, Bizman, and Raz (1983) investigated the FITD technique’s effectiveness for door-to-door fundraising. In their study, observers asked some participants to sign a petition before asking them to donate to the organization; other participants were not asked to sign a petition before making a donation. The delay between both requests was two weeks. Consequently, a more significant percentage of people who signed the petition donated to the fundraising than those who didn’t. Also, they found that making the small request to sign a petition resulted in more money being donated.
Depending on the type of request, the timing is a variable that we should take into account. For example,
“Can I go over to Suzy’s house for an hour?” followed by “Can I stay the night?”
“Can I borrow the car to go to the store?” followed by “Can I borrow the car for the weekend?”
“May I turn in the paper a few hours late?” followed by “May I turn it in next week?”
“First six months “interest-free, or “No interest for two years.”
It is easier to remain consistent with the first request in all four cases by denying the second than by accepting it. For example, in the first request, the requester has already agreed to a specific one-hour time period and, if immediately asked, likely will not agree to a different time period. However, a given time delay between the requests will more likely favorably influence the answer.
There is a lot of research supporting that the FITD technique is a successful compliance technique, but why do people tend to follow this pattern? The technique works on the principle of consistency, meaning people prefer not to contradict themselves in both actions and beliefs. As long as the request is consistent with or similar to the original small request, the technique would work. The self-perception theory also plays a role in the compliance derived from this technique. Developed by Daryl Bem, a social psychologist and retired professor from Cornell University, the theory suggests people become aware of certain attitudes by analyzing their own behavior as an outside observer. This analysis enables them to understand why they are motivated to do what they do. It is mainly because the respondent comes to feel helpful for doing something to someone. So suppose the fact of agreeing to the small request results being their desire and nothing else influenced the answer. In that case, they will feel the need to stay consistent with their decision and agree to a more significant request, thus feeling more helpful.
On the other hand, the door-in-the-face (DITF) technique is a compliance method to get a person to agree to a small request by first making a large, unrealistic request that the respondent will most likely turn down. It is much like a metaphorical slamming of a door in the persuader’s face. The respondent is more likely to agree to a second, more reasonable request than if that same request is made in isolation. The DITF technique is the opposite of the previous one. Using the FITD, the persuader begins with a small request to get a person to agree to a large one. It has been found the door-in-the-face technique produces high levels of compliance only when the same person makes the request and the requests are similar.
The technique was first tested by Robert Cialdini, professor at Arizona State University, in a study conducted in 1975. Before this, he has led decades of persuasion research. Researchers asked a group of people a large initial request, whether they would agree to volunteer to counsel juvenile delinquents for two hours a week for two years. After their refusal, they asked the same group to escort juvenile delinquents on a one-day trip to the zoo (small request). Next, researchers asked another group only the small request. Because compliance for the small request was more significant for the first group than the second, the DITF technique was successful. Even though it also required time and effort, it was more reasonable than the initial two-year commitment request.
We can say most of us use this technique in everyday life when asking our kids to do chores, our boss to have a raise, or when in need of borrowing money from a friend. Suppose you ask a friend to borrow an unreasonable sum of money, to which he says no. Then you turn around and ask for a smaller sum that he agrees to give. The DITF technique is the most effective to get people to donate their money, time, or effort.
The DITF technique’s efficacy may be explained by the sense of guilt, the principle of reciprocity, and the contrast effect. When refusing the first request, the respondent may experience a sense of guilt. The second request seems like an opportunity to reduce guilt and thus motivates the person to comply. To the sense of guilt, we can add the principle of reciprocity or concession. If someone does something for us, we feel obligated to do something in return. While refusing the first request and the person making the second smaller one, we think the opposite side is making a concession, and we’ll make one in return by agreeing. The second request contrasts with the first, more significant one, so it doesn’t seem so demanding, and we are ready to oblige. Nevertheless, the first request has to appear genuine. Suppose the demand is exaggerated and evident as not being the initial goal. In that case, the respondent will know it is a manipulation.
About 22 studies compared the effectiveness of the DITF and FITD techniques. A meta-analysis of its findings indicated no significant differences in the two methods’ effectiveness. Overall, they both produced similar rates of compliance across the studies that employed similar target requests. In addition, researchers found evidence for the effectiveness of the “foot-in-the-face” (FITF) technique by combining both prior methods. Basically, it involves two equally demanding and moderately tricky requests.
What else can we accept in our world through technology? Because it works reliably. The Overton window (OW) is named after the American sociologist Joseph Overton, who introduced the concept in the mid-1990s. In the original version, the concept’s essence was as follows: all public policy options in a given sector can be lined up on a scale from completely open (no government regulation) to the least open (complete control of the state). But only some of them, fitting into a small segment of this scale, are acceptable for the public at a certain moment. Politicians and statesmen must enter this “window” by their words and actions; otherwise, they will have no chance in elections.
Joseph P. Overton described a method that has been in effect for a long time and is still effective today. With the help of modern technologies, this concept acquired a concrete form and mathematical justification and, consequently, influenced people’s masses more quickly. We can see examples of the effects of this method in everyday life. In today’s world, the development of technology is accelerating. The flow of information that we constantly perceive is so immense that it is hard to analyze it. OW concept works based on these criteria of modern society.
Technology makes it possible to legalize absolutely any idea. Here I am presenting a description of a method. That is such a sequence of actions, the implementation of which leads to the desired goal. Attention! This technology can be an effective thermonuclear weapon to destroy human communities.
In a simplified form, different positions dealing with the same problematic topic can be decomposed into a spectrum, with the extreme points being far-right and far-left views. Between them, it is possible to identify a segment with the most acceptable opinions to society at a given moment. Still, this segment may move horizontally over time for a variety of reasons. This is where OW tries to describe these acceptable limits.
To understand the examples, let’s take a walk through world history. If we analyze public perception over the past 200 years, we will find significant changes. And these changes are no accident. Everything described by Overton moves most efficiently in a tolerant society. In a society with no ideals and, consequently, no clear division between good and evil. OW method is based on the fundamental weaknesses of almost any individual. The “beauty” of this technology is that it works even when one is aware of it. Usually, manipulation stops working as soon as its true meaning is revealed. In this case, however, the effect on the subconscious arises through a person’s basic needs.
When discussing the concept we are interested in, there is a favorite topic, cannibalism, which has become a standard definition in this story. I want to suggest that we look at how each window works on a more relevant topic of our time: child euthanasia. This issue has long been in the process of development and has advanced to its final phase. Let’s look at the whole structure of the construction of this system: from beginning to end so that you can understand how the window’s shifting works.
Initially, the idea or talk that a person could officially kill their born, unhealthy child seems horrible and unacceptable. And it is impossible to begin promoting children’s euthanasia immediately. But suppose no one forbids a scientific study concerning the medicine’s perspective on the minor’s hopeless condition. That is an opportunity to hold a scientific conference where it is possible to discuss introducing a particular drug to end a minor’s life as one option for solving the problem. It is implied that this information will leak out to the masses, however negative. Then, it is simply necessary to support and develop the question that has arisen, and society will begin to adapt. Consequently, an active discussion of the topic will begin. Thus, positions are already being revised. What was Unthinkable has become Radical, meaning OW has moved out of the Unthinkable phase.
Discussion of the issue is no longer taboo, but the idea of killing a child is still unacceptable. In addition to the occasional scientific talks, the topic is becoming more frequent in the media. At this point, some association of radical supporters of killing incurable children will emerge, and may it be a small community on the Internet. It will surely be noticed and quoted in all necessary media. This transitional phase as Radical is the most important one. Now, instead of the concept of killing sick, suffering children, a softer term, child euthanasia, will be used. The meaning is the same, but it doesn’t hurt people’s ears. Society is indoctrinated with the idea, saying, “People with disabilities did not choose this life, why should children suffer from their unbearable pain?”. No one is saying that we should urgently get rid of all minors with disabilities. But the public is beginning to think about drafting a law permitting child euthanasia in rare cases.
People have already gotten used to this topic’s presence in their lives as an Acceptable and no longer flinch when discussing child euthanasia. More and more TV programs and reports about how difficult it is for poor children and how they cannot live like that appear. Rallies are being held in defense of the supporters of this treatment. Scientists are increasingly stating that there are cases where it makes more sense not to torture children anymore but to alleviate their suffering. Eventually, the cyclical nature of history is recalled. During periods of human existence, child euthanasia was practiced and considered the norm, for example, by the Spartans. All those continuing to think rationally and unwilling to accept what is happening are exposed as these poor children’s enemies. Gradually the window moves to the Sensible phase.
The Sensible stage is crucial because it completely changes the human attitude toward killing people, in this case, children. If we do not overload the human brain with information but present it in a processed and calculated way without focusing on essential details, the effect will be immediate. Various television shows are launched discussing this topic. If there is a problem with finding real characters, both the parents of sick children and the children themselves, actors are hired. A story unfolds with a broad scenario. We also see children who do not want to live with such a condition. Society reacts to this as to a heavy theatrical performance, but the attitude has irrevocably changed to neutral. The Popular phase is coming on.
Later, movies begin to appear, which indirectly show such children’s sad fate, touching people’s feelings and making them think: “it’s true, they are suffering, aren’t they?”. Discussions about the introduction of laws on child euthanasia are more frequent. Now, in addition to adults’ subconscious, children’s perception of the issue is also involved. Terminally ill children feel that they are the focus of attention. And they think, “Really, I didn’t choose this life, why is it like this?” Overton’s theory is close to completing its task. Society no longer has questions about the loyalties and scientific conclusions of the problem. Gradually, the analytics with the ready results of surveys of people in different countries and different categories on this topic are included.
Suddenly, some famous actor or philanthropist appears, having a sick child who does not want to live and cannot solve this problem because of the law. By reforming the accepted standard window, the idea is introduced into the public mind that it is time to change something. We passed the point of no return. In the final Policy phase of this case, laws are being issued whereby every parent or every sick child who reaches a certain age will be able to make the decision to euthanize himself. And anyone opposing it will be treated as an offender of the right of choice and freedom of speech. At this point, we are at the beginning of the sixth stage. The first official case of child euthanasia in Europe was recorded in Belgium in 2016.
Overton proposed his theory as a guideline for political discussion. He suggested dividing discussion topics according to their degree of acceptability in society, meaning the degree to which people are willing to accept this or that information. Let’s look at this concept from a broader perspective. It is a method of managing public opinion by changing people’s attitudes toward a particular phenomenon. Theoretically, any concept can be moved from the Unthinkable to the “effective norm” Policy category.
The first step in moving the Overton Window can also be humor. By ridiculing a phenomenon unacceptable to society, it can be moved from the Unthinkable to the Radical category and then gradually to the Acceptable category. By constantly broadcasting jokes about something inappropriate in society, it is possible to accustom people that this phenomenon is present in our lives. As a result, the degree of its rejection will gradually become less and less acute. The humor method also works in reverse: by making fun of a current social norm, it is possible to question whether it is normal. For example, making fun of the lack of sexual experience before marriage can make people doubt that it is normal. After this stage of ridiculing, society is ready to move on to more serious arguments. For example, look at the controversial time of the 1960s. Same-sex love, abortion, adultery, and open cohabitation before marriage were all forbidden. But soon, the ice broke.
This is an example of the “civilized and prejudice-free” world contrasting with the traditional views on immorality that existed at the time. The first step was humor: people began to joke about sexual promiscuity. Soon, society stopped taking the problem seriously; then, more severe discussions started. In the media, there was an active discussion that sexual promiscuity was, of course, a “controversial” issue, but that there were people who thought it was the norm. Films are beginning to allow sexual scenes, which very quickly became the norm of the script. People who were used to thinking differently were subconsciously beginning to accept such a trend in society. There was nothing to be done about it. In 1968, student protests swept many countries.
In Paris, for example, students at Nanterre University protested against the rules established in the dormitories, demanding the right to sleep together. Cohabitation outside marriage became the norm for the French. Thus the phenomenon went from Radical to Acceptable. Once the phenomenon has become Acceptable, the process moves more rapidly and encounters fewer difficulties along the way. Discussions begin about the rights of people who follow a “free” way of life, about the fact that everyone can have his own opinion, about the fact that other people’s positions must be respected, and so on. So far, this phenomenon has not been accepted by the majority as the norm. Still, the idea that such people exist and must be tolerated has already taken hold. At this stage, the phenomenon moves into the category of Sensible.
Gradually the phenomenon moves from the Sensible to the Popular category. More and more people accept the new relationship standard. In society, the condemnation of a lifestyle that had not long ago been unthinkable gradually fades. At this stage, those who have recently been condemned by society gradually become “normal,” while their opponents become a minority. The phenomenon moves from the Popular to the “effective norm” Policy category at the final stage. This new mainstream worldview is now considered the accepted norm in society. Anyone who opposes it is declared strange at best. And in this example of sexual promiscuity, morality, purity, and responsibility for one’s actions are objects of mockery.
Thus Joseph Overton, the official concept creator, succeeded in showing humanity how to extract completely alien ideas for society from the trash can of public contempt, dust them off, and eventually legislate them. It is not just brainwashing as such: the method is much more delicate. Its gradual application is effective because it is facilitated by the inconspicuousness of its effect on the society that becomes its victim.
When discussing any socially important phenomenon, the question that usually arises is: what to do? The problem for most of us is that we invoke the world’s imperfection and expect the change to happen without our involvement and thinking everything will work out by itself. But it doesn’t work that way! We can change the world around us only by consciously changing ourselves. Every time we are confronted with information, we should reflect and analyze these questions. Is this thought similar to my beliefs and rational reasoning in general? Is this information accurate, and what will follow? What will society gain from this innovation? Who is interested in it, and for what purpose? Do you think that you are not able to change anything yourself? You are right, man alone can do absolutely nothing. However, you are personally obliged to remain human — the one who can find a solution to any problem. What one cannot do, people who are united by a common idea will manage to do. Look around you.
During regular times, out of all the possible ways to organize society, only a limited range of ideas is considered acceptable for mainstream political discussion—known as the Overton window. Covid-19 has blown the Overton window wide open. In just a few months, we’ve seen political and economic ideas seriously discussed that had previously been dismissed as fanciful or utterly unacceptable: universal basic income, government intervention to house the homeless, and state surveillance on individual activity, to name just a few. But remember—this is just the beginning of a process that will expand exponentially in the ensuing months. A crisis such as a coronavirus pandemic has a way of massively amplifying and accelerating already underway changes: shifts that might have taken decades can occur in weeks. Like a crucible, it has the potential to melt down the structures that currently exist and reshape them, perhaps unrecognizably. What might the new shape of society look like? What will be center stage in the Overton window by the time it begins narrowing again?
There’s a good chance they will call this the Neoliberal Era. Until the 1970s, the post-war world was characterized in the West by an uneasy balance between government and private enterprises. Then, a new ideology of free-market neoliberalism took center stage in the Overton window. The value system of neoliberalism, which has since become entrenched in global mainstream discourse, holds that humans are individualistic, selfish, calculating materialists. Because of this, unrestrained free-market capitalism provides the best framework for every kind of human endeavor. Through their government, finance, business, and media control, neoliberal adherents have succeeded in transforming the world into a globalized market-based system, loosening regulatory controls, weakening social safety nets, reducing taxes, and virtually demolishing the power of organized labor.
The triumph of neoliberalism has led to the greatest inequality in history, where (based on the most recent statistics) the world’s twenty-six wealthiest people own as much wealth as half the entire world’s population. Moreover, it has allowed the largest transnational corporations to establish a stranglehold over other forms of organization, resulting in the world’s hundred largest economies, from which sixty-nine are corporations. The relentless pursuit of profit and economic growth above all else has propelled human civilization onto a terrifying trajectory. The uncontrolled climate crisis is the most apparent danger: The world’s current policies have us on track for more than 3° increase by the end of this century, and climate scientists publish dire warnings that amplifying feedbacks could make things far worse than even these projections, and thus place at risk the very continuation of our civilization.
But even if the climate crisis was somehow brought under control, a continuation of untrammeled economic growth in future decades will bring us face-to-face with a slew of further existential threats. Currently, our civilization is running at 40% above its sustainable capacity. We’re rapidly depleting the Earth’s forests, animals, insects, fish, freshwater, even the topsoil we require to grow our crops.
There’s a serious risk that, rather than shifting course from our failing trajectory, the post-Covid-19 world will be one where the same forces currently driving our race to the precipice further entrench their power and floor the accelerator directly toward global catastrophe. On a greater scale, power-hungry leaders worldwide are taking immediate advantage of the crisis to clamp down on individual liberties and move their countries swiftly toward authoritarianism. Even in those countries that avoid an authoritarian takeover, the increase in high-tech surveillance taking place around the world is rapidly undermining previously sacrosanct privacy rights. A prime example of this is using smartphone location readings to track the contacts of individuals who test positive for coronavirus. European mobile operators share user data (so far anonymized) with government agencies.
But it doesn’t have to turn out that way. Back in the early days of World War II, things looked even darker, but underlying dynamics emerged that fundamentally altered the trajectory of history. Frequently, it was the very bleakness of the disasters that catalyzed positive forces to emerge in reaction and predominate. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor—the day “which will live in infamy”—was the moment when the power balance of World War II shifted. The collective anguish in response to the global war’s devastation led to the founding of the United Nations. The grotesque atrocity of Hitler’s holocaust led to the international recognition of the crime of genocide and the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Could it be that the crucible of coronavirus will lead to a meltdown of neoliberal norms that ultimately reshapes the dominant structures of our global civilization? Could a mass collective reaction to the excesses of authoritarian overreach lead to a renaissance of humanitarian values? We already see signs of this. While the Overton window allows surveillance and authoritarian practices to enter from one side, it’s also opening up to new political realities and possibilities on the other side. Coronavirus has already been more effective in slowing down climate breakdown and ecological collapse than all the world’s policy initiatives combined. Over the next year, we’re likely to see a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions greater than even the most optimistic modelers’ forecasts due to the decline in economic activity.
The current phenomenon of technological development in the form of digital expansion gives us an understanding of digitalization. In this case, we are witnessing the spread of the influence of digitally transformed data over the entire area of traditional lifestyles, economic relations, the structural architecture of civilization, etc. We can find many cases through history where new and groundbreaking technology, or a collection of such technologies, completely changed people’s lives. The occurring shift is often very dramatic, making it for those living before challenging to understand the new generation’s way of thinking and seeing the world. These kinds of dramatic changes in thinking are called singularity. Or, in other words, a phrase initially derived from mathematics and describes a point in which we are incapable of deciphering its exact properties. In this place, the equations no longer make sense. In the context of singularity, it is most common to discuss the technological side of the matter. However, another aspect of the phenomenon is the expansion of consciousness or the “mental shift” – the change from the traditional static type of worldview to a more dynamic, multidimensional perception of the world.
The human mind served as the prototype for the computer as we know it. And just as a shovel is a tool for human hands, we might say that in the same way, a computer is a tool for that mind. Human history has more than once presented the significance of physical tools that increased productivity and quality of labor, improved military conquests, perfected the art of construction, etc. And as a result, they played a fundamental role in the development of ancient human civilization. The modern instrument of the human mind will inevitably lead to far more stunning and cardinal changes than physical tools’ evolution. We are already witnessing the enormous transformative potential of digital transformation. Computer, network, Internet – all these concepts today no longer cover the entirety of the Digital World phenomenon. One of the purpose functions of which is to unite humanity.
Let’s consider the computer and the data center as a single organism of humanity. It is possible to see the similarity of the “biochemical” infrastructure of this organism’s “brain” departments. Data centers store organizations’ most critical and proprietary assets. Accordingly, they are vital to daily operations continuity, where the brain continues to evolve structurally, quantitatively, and qualitatively. This development is interconnected with the approach to singularity. Information is associated with data, but the difference is that information resolves uncertainty. In the modern world, information is one of the most critical resources and, at the same time, one of the driving forces of human society’s development. Information processes occurring in the material world, living nature, and human society are essential in everyday life. Therefore they are taken into account by all scientific disciplines, from philosophy to marketing.
The computer Deep Blue managed to beat Gary Kasparov in chess. After years of further development, even the strongest human players can no longer win on their own, even an AI running on commercial hardware. Shortly after his defeat, Kasparov developed a new kind of chess contest in which human players may use computers, creating “centaur” teams. This collaboration helps them reach more outstanding successes and accomplishments than each would’ve gotten on their own. In this sort of partnership, they obtain results that neither could achieve alone. During the play, the computer rapidly evaluates all possible moves. Then the human player picks the best option regarding their opponents. We can expect a similar singularity to occur in many other fields during the following decades. Some of us will struggle against AI, while others will ignore it. The best approach will be collaborating with the computers. That is, now we have to help computers learn and direct their growth and learning. The man can no longer rely only on himself and his brain. Instead, he has to collaborate and unite with sophisticated computers to beat tomorrow’s challenges. This realization can be a singularity all by itself.
As shown in the diagram above, with the universal binary code through 1 and 0, any information (without forgetting images and sounds) can be represented in digital form. From this level, the digital data of all humankind is in singularity. Synergy relates to a specific place/location in space, which makes possible the existence of all things or, one could say, is the “vessel” of the world. Everything is therefore alike; all things are involved in a kind of togetherness in which all things contain each other. Togetherness embodies the synergy property of self-growth of being. And this synergy corresponds to the point of singularity marking a rupture in any continuity and the presence in it of a reality of a higher order. I suppose that synergy may be the key to understanding digital and spiritual energy’s symbiosis. Synergy and singularity symbiosis would provide the greatest possible unlocking of humanity’s shared spiritual and digital knowledge potential. Here we come to the question of the Akashic Library’s presence in this scheme, which is in a higher dimension than the one in which we live.
We can compare the Akashic Library to the supercomputer system of the Universe. This system acts as the central storage of all information for each person who has ever lived on Earth. The Akashic Library contains knowledge of global changes, world movements, all significant events for humanity as a whole, as well as for each individual. It seems to be more than just an events archive; it is like a cosmic internet, where it is possible to find specific information through a search engine, which is constantly changing and expanding as a reflection of humanity’s development. That is, it operates like data centers where stackable information is added. The Akashic Library is interactive, with an information exchange of all system elements. It has an enormous impact on our daily lives, relationships, feelings and belief systems, and the potential realities that we attract to ourselves. We, as humanity, can interact with this “spiritual source” and receive knowledge and instruction in earthly time and space. But how can we decipher the symbiosis of the combined spiritual and digital potential of humanity’s knowledge using The Akashic Library?
Despite the impressive progress of computer mathematics so far, computers still do not know how to discover the “law of nature” formula. “I know that I know nothing” – these words, usually assigned to Socrates, can be entirely attributed to altered consciousness/perception of the Universe. As specialists admit, fractals are the most effective and the only possible way to gain insight into the Universe’s laws so far. In reality, fractal as a mathematical abstraction, i.e., an approximation to what we see in real life, seems even more interesting.
There have been many studies and books written about the workings of the mind. What most of these studies are doing, however, is studying the physical workings of the brain. Science can now tell with great accuracy where some process occurs within the brain but knows practically nothing about what this means. Knowing what regions of the mind light up when we think about some subject is not the same thing as knowing how all of this becomes an image in our mind. If, as the physicists believe, the reality that we live in is a composite of the physical and mental, then we must understand the mental side before we can hope to understand that reality. Considering the importance that modern physics now gives to consciousness understanding its nature becomes more urgent.
Interestingly, the ancient Greeks, from whom the word came, called “cosmos” anything with an inherent order and orderliness. The study of the origin of the universe is not only a fundamental and exciting challenge by definition, but perhaps it is also the key to energy in the modern and future century. We often hear that humanity’s energy use has increased so much that fossil resources will run out in a couple of decades in recent years. But we heard the same thing in the 1970s. Where do we get our energy today, and what do we do next? To develop technology, we need to understand how to effectively convert it into work because energy is not an endless resource, even on an astronomical scale. Virtually all the energy that exists on Earth and that humans can extract from the solar system is the Sun’s energy, which has a finite lifetime. And all the energy in the universe is limited to what the Big Bang gave us. But what is energy?
Nowadays, the word “energy” is one of the most popular words. People today strive to be active and energetic. But most importantly, energy and its possession are necessary in the modern world because it is the primary source of production. There is a fierce rivalry between countries for various energy sources like oil and gas. Clemenceau said with perfect truth: “A drop of oil is worth a drop of blood.” The race for energy, oil, and gas is a race for reality, for the present – as people see it. But few of the racers after “real values” realize that their way of being and goal-setting has been outlined as far back as antiquity, in ancient philosophy.
We owe the word “energy” its particular terminological use to the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle. In ancient Greek, energeia means “reality,” “activity,” or literally, energy is something that is in action, in motion. Aristotle contrasted this concept with the notion of possibility. Energy is something that is realized, not just in conception or potentiality. According to Aristotle, the highest energy, in an unusual way for us, belongs to God, who himself is motionless. For us, who are used to associating energy and motion, it is bizarre that for Aristotle, the most energetic, authentic, and active is the one that is at the same time motionless and represents the supreme peace.
The history of energy began at the moment of the Big Bang. Perhaps at one moment, two related concepts appeared: energy and space-time. Maybe energy was the root cause of everything in our world. It remains to be figured out, but one thing is sure now: energy is the essence of the physical form of matter. Everything in the Universe is a concentration of one form or another of energy. The theory of the expansion of the early Universe indicates that originally all matter was a homogeneous isotropic environment. There was cooling and “condensation” of all elementary particles known to science in the expansion process. Four fundamental interactions appeared: strong, weak, electromagnetic, and gravitational. Many years after the Big Bang, when people first started using energy, no one knew about these four interactions. Humans initially warmed themselves and cooked food with chemical combustion reactions. All of human life is in a constant search for energy. It may be a grand statement, but think about it: we eat to get energy for brain function and movement. Physical energy is fuel for other forms of energy resources, primarily emotional and mental energy. Mental energy defines our life and our development by allowing us to focus on our most important problems and tasks. Spiritual energy is determined by our non-selfish goals and values – an adequate balance between caring for others and paying attention to our own desires and needs. Spiritual energy gives a person a direction where we want to spend other energy resources like physical, emotional, and mental. It is the spiritual energy that makes us act and gives us tenacity and perseverance.
Before Einstein formulated the theory of relativity, he believed that all celestial bodies that were time-dependent were subject to gravitational force, thus carrying out the motion of galaxies, but that time and space were unaffected by them. The theory of relativity opened the road to the greatest intellectual revolution, in which it was proved that space and time are interdependent and that it is correct to use the term “space-time”. In this case, the singularity, meaning the contraction of space, expresses the disappearance of time.
The Universe originated in a super-hot state, which then began to cool down. As this plasma cooled, elementary particles with their properties began to appear in this plasma. But there are other properties, which are called fundamental constants. According to calculations, it turned out that if any of these constants differed from its current position by a negligible amount, by 10 to the minus twentieth power, then the Universe would not be formed. It would either collapse into some enormous mass or be blown away into dust. This principle is called the fine-tuning of the Universe. It is not yet possible to precisely explain in physics or biology or anywhere else the spontaneous emergence of the Universe. So far, these are just theories. And behind these calculations are rigid laws of nature, rigid values of fundamental constants. With the Universe’s development, when stars arise, heavy elements form in the stars, and hydrogen and helium, carbon, oxygen, iron appear. Planet Earth emerges. On Earth, man arises, with dozens of different elements in his body, without which he cannot exist. That is why this fine-tuning principle is called the anthropic principle in philosophy. It is derived from the word Anthropos, meaning man. In other words, these constants are not random; they did not just arise to form some beautiful and ordered universe. They exist in order for humans to emerge. In other words, the Universe is designed for humans!
This argument has been extended in recent years by many other ones. For example, in his book Programming the Universe, American physicist Seth Lloyd writes that the Universe is a quantum computer. Suppose the Universe is a quantum computer, which implements some program. In that case, it must also have a programmer who wrote this program, which has run for nearly 14 billion years, right? He said he is only a physicist and does not know the answer to this question. But for him, the Big Bang should be more correctly called Bit Bang. And where is this information? Where does it come from? Why is the world developing according to this program? We know very little!
Probably everyone has heard about the Big Bang Theory, not to be confused with the famous movie series of the same name, but few people have any idea what is behind these words and where and how this theory develops. When people say the word “explosion,” the picture that comes to mind is a bomb exploding and blowing up into nothing. That picture is wrong. The correct concept is that there is a gigantic density of energy throughout space. It makes this space expand. But space, which has begun to expand, can also be infinite. However, a strange question might arise as to how there is an Infinite with great density. And it is so simple and yet so odd at the same time. It could be that the Universe was finite in size, like a sphere, and then began to expand and stretch to gigantic proportions. That’s a possibility that’s being discussed. Maybe that initial state can’t be described in terms of ordinary space, ordinary time at all. And we know nothing about what came before. Thanks to modern astronomical and astrophysical observations, we can say with certainty that our Universe is currently expanding slowly and has a relatively low temperature.
Ultimately, according to scientists, the Big Bang theory suffers from the same major flaw as the evolution theory. Both describe almost perfectly how the Universe (or life on Earth) changed after creation. Still, neither can explain how it all began. And maybe the ancient philosophers were right when they said that “the world was created, like time itself, without beginning or end. On the other hand, attempts to create universes in the laboratory hold great promise: perhaps, in the future, it will help us to survive the inevitable death of our Universe. The Big Bang is usually considered to be a theory of the birth of the Universe. However, technically it does not exactly describe the origin of the Universe but instead attempts to explain how the Universe developed from a very tiny, dense state into what it is today.
The scale that cosmologists scientists work at, of course, is much different. The Universe is huge compared to a single planet, even a single galaxy, and its timeline is much longer. Because of this, cosmologists can’t know with certainty how the Universe began or how it will end. They can, however, collect evidence, make educated guesses and establish theories. One such theory concerning the future of the Universe is known as the “big crunch.” According to this theory, the Universe will one day stop expanding. Then, as gravity pulls on the matter, the Universe will begin to contract, falling inward until it has collapsed back into a super-hot, super-dense singularity. If you’re disconcerted by all this talk of crunching and expanding, you can take comfort in knowing that the fate of the Universe won’t be determined for billions, maybe even trillions, of years. That gives us plenty of time to focus on things that are a bit more certain, such as our own life cycle.
The point is that there is a growing disorder in the universe. Entropy is the measure of that disorder. The flow of time from the past to the future means that entropy in the universe is constantly increasing. In simple terms, entropy is the law that says that everything in the world spoils. Hot things cool down over time, heat escapes from them. Buildings collapse and crumble into ashes, all living things age and die. These changes are related to the passage of time and mark the transition from the past to the future.
The same is true of any closed system: entropy can only increase (at best, remain constant), it never decreases. Obviously, the presence of living beings on Earth contradicts this principle. We create order out of disorder – we build houses and things like that. But the Earth is not a closed system. It’s powered by the Sun, and that outweighs entropy. So if we take the solar system as a whole and consider it a closed system, it turns out that entropy in it does increase – in full accordance with the laws of thermodynamics.
In most cases, the laws of nature do not distinguish between the forward and backward motion of time. With respect to time, these laws are symmetrical. You can make a movie about various physical interactions and run the movie backward, and no one will notice the glitch. But in our everyday experience, we unmistakably separate the past from the future. We can almost always guess that the film has gone in the wrong direction; we don’t confuse these directions. The source of “symmetry breaking” is still one of the great mysteries, but we know that in the universe – the way we see it – our perception of the passage of time is most likely due to increasing disorder, entropy in a closed system. The path from order to chaos is one-way; entropy increases with time. A broken cup will not reassemble itself from the shards and jump back on the shelf. Disorder never diminishes.
Hawking, an English theoretical physicist, was the first to outline a cosmological theory that combined the concepts of general relativity and quantum mechanics. And this unification was essentially the main thing to study new aspects of the Universe structure and once again try to solve the riddle of the singularity at the beginning of time. Discussing such questions as what was before the Big Bang and where time came from is valuable and enjoyable and therefore necessary. It is helpful because it develops our methods and skills, aligns previous results, and lays the foundation for future knowledge and, perhaps, proposals for the future survival of humanity in this troubled home, our Universe.
To consider the theories of the origin and development of the Universe. To study the presence of symmetry and asymmetry of the Universe related to the concept of time. Whether asymmetric fractals extend to infinity or suggest that calculations have an end in the end. What does the pursuit of knowledge of these matters really accomplish? Sir Roger Penrose, a British mathematical physicist, believes that there is some world beyond the senses accessible to us through the intellect, which is not identical to our physical world. From time to time, the connection between the mathematical world, physical objects, and the world of ideas suddenly appears. After analyzing all this, there is a certainty that through the development of education, increasing and unifying knowledge, using the Law of Nature and uniting it with spiritualistic knowledge, there is a way to transform Human Knowledge from the physical level to the digital level to its further use at the highest advanced level.
Imagine that with the help of thought, before going to sleep, a person tries to simulate tomorrow’s events. By this practice, it is possible to find out that when solving complex problems, the brain switches off, and after some time, it turns on with a ready solution. Later on, in everyday life and when working on serious scientific problems, it is enough to consciously set ourselves a straightforward task and continue doing other things. This may be work or recreation, sports, or creative activities. After some time, the solution will come practically ready, and it only remains to be comprehended.
It is well known that absolutely all problems – in relationships, health, career, and creativity – are related to human thinking. And they are caused by energy-informational fields, more precisely by thoughts and emotions, which are subject to the laws of physics. Nowadays, scientists are increasingly entering the sphere of medicine and psychology. In addition to knowledge of the laws of physics, it requires the ability to think logically, to solve complex, almost mathematical problems. It is impossible to achieve effective results in the management of thoughts without prior work. It is daily work on emotions, attitudes, thoughts. An unprepared person is unlikely to achieve good results just by using techniques. Much depends on how many unnecessary beliefs and negative emotions a person has, how strong they are, and how ready he is to work on himself.
Thought control is a complex process. In terms of physics, one must learn to emit high-frequency vibrations. And this is nothing but positive thoughts and emotions – feelings of gratitude, joy, love, anything that attracts similar in return. As a result, a person who radiates high vibrations quickly and easily achieves goals, lives happily, and has no health problems. According to the laws of physics, the way we feel now is the way we will become in the future.
What is going on in the head of humans and how it works is the question for many scientists in the world. The first thought that the human brain is just an electronics mechanism came at the begging of 1970. At that time, scientists did experiments on fallen soldiers. They experiment how action with electric impulses to the specific part of the human brain opens the possibility to impact the moving parts of the dead person.
How neurons are releasing impulses is a long history of deep bio-neural studies. Inside neurons in the human brain work microscopic elements like electric impulses and using neural networks similar to known electricity cable networks, and these elements move via our neural system. So they studied electric impulses and also a system of forming bio-magnetic fields. These bio-magnetic fields in the brain exist, but there are deep studies about a kind of synchronicity between these magnetic fields and the other, even global magnetic fields – in our understanding up to the level of earth bio-magnetic field read more about Schumann resonance).
The term: electro-encephalogram was invented In 1928 a psychiatrist Hans Berger. He was able to first-time measure the electric signal from the top layer of the brain. Modern encephalograms can measure in which part of the brain runs up electric activity. These days, it is also possible to force the action of the electric device by human thoughts, like the moving fingers of the robotic hand and many similar actions. There are also studies of playing Tetris by thoughts, as well as writing simple letters.
Modern encephalograms use sensors that are reading the electro-magnetic information from the brain. By this information, they can observe the root cause of different sicknesses, even the signals, and patterns of the sickness, such as schizophrenia.
It is easy to imagine that in the future, the communication with the computer will not be operated by keyboard and mouse, but directly with the human brain forced impulses.
Although, the development of “human thoughts reading by bio-electric types of equipment, and connection of these thoughts with the computer is just on the beginning. We can’t read human thoughts by computer now.
We have to wait a while as development is moving forward, and there will come better technologies. However, I am sure that working on the more sensitive sensors and better algorithms of working with these patterns can open the possibility of reading human thoughts by computer much better.
The brain computes and operates neurons via the network of cells. The signal moves between cells using algorithms in the form of chemical elements that develop the brain itself. This kind of operation is the core difference how brain computing from the common electronic computer. While computers send simple information of 0 and 1, brain neurons send and receive more complex sets of information that relate to each other.
For example, one thought can hold information movement of different brain sectors, and their relationship is not taken in our measurement. Moreover, every thought handles factors from all senses: though, smell, touch, every thought contains a set of this information, probably even more.
Our current physics cannot answer how our world is organized and explain the role of humans in this world. However, laws of traditional physics can be applied to 3D objects in a 3-dimensional universe and are valid only in our space.
Consciousness has two sides. Something like the inner and outer. To make something possible, for example, communicate, touch, or smell by the outer side of consciousness, we must exert some effort and come in touch with surrounding things. Meantime our inner consciousness is always with us, so it’s not necessary to make anything to make it works. But, we can force effort to express and understand what we have inside. Doing that is not so easy and clear things.
In the middle of 90 years, Edward Witton expressed calculations and mathematical models prove that there is at least an 11-dimensional universe. Moreover, in every one of these dimensions is possible to place an endless volume of worlds.
So higher is the volume of dimensions, and higher is the volume of components in these dimensions, so more information is available. In contrast, in the three-dimensional, the volume of information is limited. So that means that if we have x-dimensions around us and everything we do, track, or measure in 4-dimensional logic, our understanding is wrong because the information is incomplete.
John Serl – a modern philosopher, said that we are going wrong in science for the last 50 years by watching the materialistic understanding of our world. We still assume that our consciousness is directly connected – or it is part of our brain. We do not accept the theory that consciousness can exist without the brain. It will mean that consciousness is immortal. Although, when we think about this from Vedic scripts or religious science, it is said that the soul is immortal.
So, what is inside our heads? It is a 3-dimensional computing system (Fabrique) that operates our 3-dimensional body. The brain manages the functioning of all our organs without the necessity of thinking about them, from blood pressure through the routine but pretty difficult mechanical and biochemical processes.
Imagine that person is working in Fabrique and whole life doing the same thing again and again. He doesn’t need to use the brain for the exhaustion of the work because he does that automatically. But then this person comes home, and he wants, for example, to build some homemade part of the furniture in his house. It is not a routine, and his brain does not have at this moment a clear solution for how to do that. At this moment, the brain is starting the process of thinking. His communication channel with (Akasha, or quantum) information field opens and gets information. At this moment – the person becomes a creator. He performs an imagination of things that do not exist in this world, but they can be in the future. Often, many of these complex imaginations come into sleep.
I’ve studied several serious experiments made somewhere in the university in California when scientists measured brain activity during sleeping and found that the brain is 7-time more active than during the normal daytime operation. The main paradox is that at that moment, the main sense is switched off. The sleeping person has increased electrical activity of watching, listening, smelling, balancing, and many more. My question is, what super-difficult work does our brain do while we sleep? If you stand on the digital “weight” in the morning, you will see that during the 6 hours of sleep, you lose about 1-2% of your weight. Half of this is water, and the rest calories are consumed by intensive brain activity during sleep.
Most probably, I can imagine that while sleeping, the brain (or consciousness) crosses the border of our three-dimensional space, and this gives us a possibility to get information from the source of Akasha (quantum field). An extreme amount of information. By this, we can also explain the phenomenon of “predictive” dreams. You probably also heard that many inventions came from different people at the same moment – and all of them prove that they got it during sleep. Strange? Maybe. Amazing. Definitely yes. Let’s move forward.
We use to think that exist some materialistic holder of the information. But our feelings are also real (exists), although they don’t have materialistic properties of character. This kind of information storage is also the human consciousness. Most religions are calling that spirit (soul) and accepting it as immortal. Soul, we cannot measure by materialistic parameters like length, weight, and width. It is also impossible to measure things – like love, pain, intellect, and many other human personality characteristics. The size of such storage (holder) does not have borders. It helps to store all information from the past and future and their different options (variants).
A Canadian neurologist performed a unique experiment that analyzed his patients using electric impulses and hypnosis methods and helps them remember events from the past and analyzed the deepness of details they can remember. Meantime, patients were able to feel all the feelings around – like smells, etc. They felt that they are in the exact place in the past. During one of the critical experiments, he took a 60-year-old bricklayer. He expresses very deeply specified details from an event that happened 40 years ago, when he was 20, working on some building. He remembered details that in a normal situation, you even don’t think about it. For example, the dimensions of bricks, their cracks, and their position placed in the building construction. Later they analyzed the building and details pass for 100% of what a patient said. That means our memory is endless, and we can remember (write to the information field) every small detail, even that we are not thinking about.
Is it possible that the human brain can remember all such details and remember them for such a long time? Scientists are very skeptical of this, and the chance is very small. The brain can’t remember everything, and our memory capacity is very limited. In reality, we cannot remember all situations around us with the accuracy of milli-seconds. None of the brain systems can manage this. We use only a few remember and our memory works in some of the blocks.
The question is if we can use some methods how to get from memory these details. In reality, even when we explain the same situation several times, we can easily explain it in different words, with different details. That means every situation we explain from the same point of view is different ). This is how misunderstandings grow in our brains.
It is a pretty difficult question – We even cannot trust your mind 🙂
There exists one more state of living when we can connect off from our 3-dimensional world. It is possible during mediation. It is a master practice of every Tibetian temple. Even the simplest monk must be able to separate body (brain) and mind. Monks have their practices that are described in the Tibetian book of the Dead. They live an ascetic life, eating mainly food from natural proteins (food with DNA construction must be as far as possible different from ours). They don’t eat food with similar DNA with our – like meat and products full of saccharides. They are preparing their body for a kind of anabiosis. The result is that their body does not die but functioning only on the core processes while the brain activity is getting more silent.
These have our neurophysiologists pretty nice described the map of the human brain. They know exactly what part of the brain manages what part of the human body, what parts of organs, taste, and so on. Even there are specifics per persona, and parts can differentiate. So this device can track the human brain of every patient, and the algorithm can assign the proper role of the brain to the proper zones of human mechanism control.
These zones are possible easy separate. Neuro-surgeons know where one zone ends and where another one starts. For example, where are zones of core stimulations, and where are zones of peripheral stimulations. All this is well known, but nobody can say where and how we borns our thoughts. In which zones we have stored thoughts for the first dating, or remembers of a very tasty meal, and into which zone of the brain were stored all the information from years of education and university studies.
Can you believe that Television has its consciousness? No, it has not. Television is just a receiver of information, but the source of sending the information is different. It is a receiver of signal that uses an antenna to receive signal waves “moving” everywhere around us.
It looks like the human system works in a very similar manner. So understanding something as own consciousness, “own will,” or in general something “we own” is the most probably mistakenly understanding – and possible only in our current illusion. Our consciousness works like an analog TV but is much more complex.
In 90 years of the 19th century, a Russian academic, Juri Fomin, said consciousness works independently of the brain. Every personality is part of a global informational decision-based structure. There exist many significant scientific research and experiments. These things have been found in early experimentation with LSD. Under the stimulation of different toxins, people start to see and know thighs that they should not know and see. Later was found that it’s not even necessary to use toxins to stimulate such knowledge. It is enough to execute special breathing methods by that it is possible to bring a person to the state in which he can get a piece of particular information, and he can remember things that did not happen in his own life.
The question is – everything is simple. Because nature does everything in simple logic with the most effective way, with the lowest consumption of energy, when we are trying to watch the system more and more complex, we can come to the core misunderstanding because the answer should be simple.
This is in controversy of our understanding of the three-dimensional. But, moreover, in the state of hypnosis or clinical death, we see things and the energy how it works, out of our existing limitations of the viewing illusion.
Another very specific question is human memory. In the history of people are numerous situations when people show an extreme possibility of memory. For example, Cleopatra knew ten languages, and despite the fact, there is not a note of how she learned it. On the other hand, the administrator of the Vatican libraries spoke fluent in six languages, and he was able to write in more than 50 languages. And he never left the border of Italy and this amount of languages he was able to learn by himself only.
Chess player Alexandr Alioknin was able to remember all matches for the whole history of his playing. Japanese guy Akina Haraguchi was able to remember 83431 numbers of the Pi. It is really difficult to imagine that such a volume of information can be represented as the results of a connection between neurons that give such results to the brain. Much easier to imagine such phenomenal memory is access to the comprehensive library (Aksha, also called the quantum field).
Who developed this complicated mechanism that we are calling the human brain? And how it exactly works? We don’t know the answer to the question of who is more important – who is leading who? Person leading his brain, or brain leading the person? Is it possible that the brain is just a very small piece of a much more complex system (or device), and the human consciousness is out of our body, and it is a part of the information field of the whole universe? Yes, the question, my question, our question, the human sense question.

I appreciate your interest in coming to this page. I have released an upgraded version of this examination every year, since 2014, and the mission is to continue this trend. Every year I collect experience via different experiments in areas of innovation, business, governance, and in areas of mental experience and the conscious understanding of people’s mentality. Results of these experiments I reguralry publish here and the next chapter’s upgrade will be stimulated by these running experiments:
