The paradoxical theory of change

The paradoxical theory of change states that the first step toward changing anything is to allow it to be whatever it is - self, world, etc. In the context of Larson's theory, this makes sense to me in the following way: many of the ad hoc theories of modern science are efforts to force the world to...

Re: Abstract Change / Wu Xing

Also, the I Ching strikes me as a method for extracting 'one unit of time' from the chaotic flow in order to extrapolate the structural order of that moment of abstract change in 'n' dimensions (both space and time). Properly interpreted, both temporal and spatial 'tendencies of the moment' are give...

Re: Temporal Landscapes

It just occurred to me that Merleau-Ponty, author of the quote in the first message, also described (as did Larson) three orders of phenomena: the physical order (inanimate, Level One); the vital order (biological, Level Two); and the human order (M-P did not call it metaphysical, LevelThree).

Re: Temporal Landscapes

I have read some of Daniel's papers and found that he has a way of expressing himself which has been helpful to me in understanding RS2 concepts. I hope he is able to overcome his current troubles. I have also read much of his material on Montauk. Fortunately I am open-minded enough to find it quite...

Temporal Landscapes

Temporal Landscapes If we no longer can consider time “an object of our knowledge,” we must consider it a “dimension of our being”… [this]…means not that (1) “time is FOR someone” but that (2) “time IS someone” (Maurice Merleau-Ponty) – Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy. As a student of phenomenol...

Re: Beyond Space and Time - the curious absence of Carl Jung

I have created a discussion elsewhere in this forum - "Jung, Pauli, and Synchronicity" and posted a couple of messages there. I am looking forward to extending that discussion further and would welcome any constructive criticism.

Re: Jung, Pauli, and Synchronicity

From Anthony Storr, editor, "The Essential Jung": "Throughout his life, Jung had been impressed by clusters of significant events occurring together, and by the fact that these events might be physical as well as mental...such coincidences, which he considered "relatively common," demanded an explan...

Jung, Pauli, and Synchronicity

I have taken Lone Bear's suggestion and am working on developing an RS2 analysis of Jung's concept of 'synchronicity' - especially as it relates to the cosmic sector. While doing some research on this topic, I have run into an issue that I need help in clarifying: Larson has stated (BST) that at the...

Re: Beyond Space and Time - the curious absence of Carl Jung

I'm working on it...doing some research on Sector 3 and refreshing on some Jungian concepts. I will have to read all of Beyond Space and Time in order to prepare something. Maybe a week or two.

Re: Spontaneous Psychic Ability

You might find the book, Up From Eden, by Ken Wilber to provide an intelligent, evolutionary approach to this issue. Here is a concise summary of the book by transpersonal researcher Stanislav Grof: http://www.integralworld.net/rev/rev_ufe_grof.html.

Re: Beyond Space and Time - the curious absence of Carl Jung

It is especially interesting that Jung was working with Wolfgang Pauli on an alternative to the causal model of the physical universe that involved the concept that, alongside the causal order, there might exist another structural order in which events that express similar meanings tend to cluster a...
