[Buddha and religion chapter on modern understanding of holoprocess generating friendly rules [Dharma] to connect with respect and no infringement: Thus interpret religions as to the problems with this function.
The task is to provide or change the present
"politically correct rules of society" from split and
fragmented to synergetic as holoprocess. Synergy will mean connecting
the holographic level with the human rational level. This comes
directly in the chapter on healing and psychology. It is a reframing
of much that is already present with the addition of deeper and
synergetic understanding. Synergy is about connectedness.]

Religion is first a orientation of humans that transcends their daily life and tasks. It includes statements about the universe, cause or creation, inclusiveness of something beyond our understanding. What part of human evolution brought out this attitude? It doesn't seem to appear in other animals.
My basic model of human evolution is that language allows us to Share our minds in a way that can be described mathematically as equivalent to being within a single skull. This step allows us to transcend the limitations of self organization to form cultures that can learn and pass on knowledge outside of our basic DNA "hardware" and beyond mere imitation. We can interact in an interdependent way that allows specialization. The very nature of language is to create meta-structures that encode time. This opens a new global computational space into which humans moved.
We filled this empty space with ourselves, by arranging the perceived objects of this global space into maps that reflected and resonated with our internal structures. We projected our minds onto the universe. This is not a new idea, but has been clearly stated by all Buddhist teachers [masters]. What is the present task is to show how modern science is also embodied in religious thought. In the next chapter I will make the case that science has taken on the role and function previously given to religion and spiritual quests / inquiries, and that in many early developments, science has also fallen into the anthropomorphic projection of the human mind onto the universe. Thus making the universe appear as their politics wished it to instead of allowing it to show itself for what it is.
Ten years ago, when I first started this writing
project, I tried to construct a model which is very global:
"Unified Meta System:
All proteins, cells, `brains' and societies are organized with the same logics as found in Neural nets: connectivity, `weights', and layers (or fractals).
Evolution (DNA) is multi-emergent in which individual species are generated from a meta-pattern which is present in all individuals. This meta-pattern is divided into two operations with distinct logics for each. The first logical part generates all functions necessary for the biological operation of the individual. The second logic operates on the entire pattern as cognitive environmental operations. Each individual contains the source of information which generates the rest of the ecological system. Thus the structure of plants and all other animals are included and coexistent with the functional operational plans of the individual and its' behavior. (holographic mind as neural nets) A precise model of this process is the human cultural activity called `Music', in that patterns of organization called `tonalities' (variously based on 7, 5, and other combinations of notes) exist within the meta-pattern of all 12 `notes' or a continuum of frequencies. Additional models are found in `Mandalas' which have fractal structures and digital sundials where different input angles can result in different output shadows which block inappropriate behavior. This is a structured inhibition or sculpting of input which results in simultaneous outputs. The `answer' illuminates which behaviors are possible as a response to the situation. We experience this space of possible behaviors as consciousness. Humans insert `language' and supervisory `ego' between our internal representations and our `actions' by `naming', `labeling' and objectifying fragments of our consciousness. This insertion is `in another dimension to' the unified `stream' of input, and representation in an output space of consciousness. But the usual idea of flat surface (2 dimensions) to which we construct at right angles an additional 3rd dimension (like nails in a board by which we attach `objects') is a inverted human conceit that our language function is a `higher dimension' to ordinary consciousness as instinct. Language is obviously constructed in a lower sequential space to `consciousness', and consciousness is in a lower dimensional space to the meta-pattern as operating in information spaces about our environment represented by the digital sundial metaphor. This meta-pattern `generates' or constructs connected networks (neural nets). The `process of thinking' assembles or connects elements (words) into temporary nets, the symbols and sounds that we call language being the outputs of these nets. The `original consciousness' also has a thought-like output which we call `feelings, will-intention' of which our `thoughts' are linear representations.
[ We land animals evolved from a ocean where boundaries are not as definite as experienced in a world of light and vision. Boundaries are signaled by chemicals in the ocean as the blood of a total organism that we now name `ecological system'. Each species `breaths' the blood-water to participate in the experience of the whole. Their place of function within the whole is like the function of some group of cells (organ system) within their boundaries. Human societies have the same connected structure relating to the `ocean' of interconnected skills - roles - jobs that we call culture - language. This culture has the same mathematical `shape' as the meta-pattern as digital sundial. Only different `phase angles' illuminate which nets as roles are generated. ]
The `brain" is organized in a parallel
manner: as self operating in a cultural environment. The neural
nets which are the self, relate to `left brain', language, archetypal
roles and `time' as personal `history' which organizes the connectivity
of the nets. The `location' within patterns of multi-cycles provide
the starting weights of the nets. (the weights are in phase space)"
Now I want to outline some of the ways that
religions and cultures as maps emerge from the structure of our
minds as outlined in the last two chapters. This is intended to
create connections that support past human intuitions. Then I
will introduce some problems and difficulties in religion based
on the same structures.
1. Religious worship emerges from
the activity of the neural networks of the brain acting in BAM's: as bi-directional resonant layers of associative structures (called bi-directional associative memories by neural net theory). Thus any thought/action structures that act in resonance over time (traditions) behave like religion, and this includes modern science, and technology and image making. Political systems are a prime example:
These various systems have ended in name calling,
and exclusive associative categories which fragment the unity
of the source as human structures. The argument over who is correct
in their thinking and presentation covers up the exploration of
many directions. For example, Astrology has not evolved, nor is
it considered a possible source of the DNA code, yet humans intuit
a common source for life and a link with all life forms. That
link is usually seen as cosmic and timeless.
2. Concept of God
There are so many new ideas mirrored in the
generic descriptions of God: All powerful, all knowing, present
everywhere and creator. I do not wish to be involved in particular
exclusive sectarian positions that is unique to any religion,
but that in itself seems to align me with many statements and
contrast with other statements of exclusion. With this in mind,
I refer to the interlocking triangles of the previous chapter,
whose completeness is three resonant positions of agreement and
3 of opposition, which point to a totality of complementarily.
[See book "Conscious Universe"] I also refer to exclusiveness
as a map of a normal process / activity of neural networks called
All or nothing competitiveness in / using lateral inhibition.
Holographic mind is a good model of all-knowing
omnipresent spiritual beings. Another model is the total human
species as a fractal structure wherein each individual "self"
has a particular address. This interdependent whole allows for
specialties of work and cultural tasks to add up to complete functions.
As mentioned before, the one mind as a map shared by all humans
is also modeled by the places of worship as temples, etc. The
creative aspect is modeled by the new ideas of a self-organizing
Universe. The aspect of the "Word as God" was described
in my model as the time field which is at a higher dimension of
strength indicated by its single power drop of strength relative
to distance, whereas the EMF drop off is the 2nd power which indicates
a lower dimension. All powerful at each point of space is modeled
by the "Big Bang" which emerged out of the energy of
"empty" space. Thus the time field energy available
from the "big bang" would still be very powerful and
would account for the spiritual / psychic "world". [I
will not explore these areas in this book.]
<Order and ordered systems having global rules was the goal of the Idea - concept of God: a being who originated the laws which keep things running smooth as clockwork. This idea was continued by science, thus the search for proof and laws of the universe.
NOW I can describe random systems which produce their own laws, order and uniqueness. NOW I can model unique systems whose sum seems chaotic [Shiva], but is innerly congruent and consistent. [or at least wants same] There are even psychological models based on inner dissonance and resonance.
The total energy surface of the neural networks of the human neocortex is another model of "God", where the individual depressions or locations of this map are the "self" and personality. Thus each individual can know their own location and the location of others, but does not "know" the entire global energy surface, because each location / viewpoint "re-maps" the "depressions" from that viewpoint as modeled by the heliocentric positions in the last chapter. This energy surface of personality is a lower dimensional "slice" of a higher dimensional surface that maps the culture and the ecological system. Thus the personality or self is not independent of the entire global surface of which it is one of many "solutions". That is why the human "self" is powerless: because it is part of a system, only one of many "depressions or attractors" on a culturally defined and shared energy surface.
Here is a metaphor that illustrates this point:
"Culture is like driving a car, facing forward,
but stuck in reverse with no rear view mirror. Up till school age, we drive in a serene country side, at a cognitively determined pace. (only as fast as we can process information and in our self originated attention vector) At the start of school, something throws our car into reverse and doesn't tell us. Everything starts to recede, we cover old ground, but with a different perspective or frame of reference. We look around and find others doing the same thing: we are on a expressway and accelerating. But we have a guide.
We continue our forward driving sometimes in our `play', but mostly in our dreams. About 12 years old, we begin to figure it out, or at least suspect that everything is in reverse: that we have entered the great highway of culture. Where all progress is directed by analysis of experts and heroes that have gone before.
The longer we are in school the more our goals recede. We become witnesses of a landscape that we no longer participate in or organize or involve us. We only get involved in our place as the space between the `cars' that surround us.
We must allow everyone to find `forward and drive' to be able to continue on the journey of evolution,
and not just ignore self - organizing unsupervised
behavior as `Art', Dreams, and the work of Buddhas. (The `driving
backwards' is a metaphor for the essentially inhibitional nature
of the neocortex in relation to mid and lower brain centers or
>religious dogma are context free programs that are accepted [requires FAITH] by old mammal brain,
but have little rational content, so the rationalizations
built around them is "weak"!
Buddhist service has
same two stream as male female side, circle as completeness, mythic
chant as compact, "mature" command sets and refresh
of esteem of inner processes. This includes the room behind the
Buddha as direct easy access to evolutionary - natal stages [non-language]
The pattern of the "original" human as Adam is the compete pattern of wholeness.
This is not a mystical religious "fiction", but the real sense of a totally self reliant human who has not become whose procedures and functions needed to be self supporting have not yet become fragmented and distributed into specialties and preferences. The interdependent activities of a modern culture have not emerged. Adam does not conceive of others doing anything "for" him/her in exchange for something of "value". This knowledge of value can be seen as emerging from "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil". The symbol of the apple is one of symmetry. The idea that Adam was "made" in the image of the cosmos is also not inconsistent with the original myth. God as creator who "made" can be structured as "self organizing construction". The first "words" or language spoken was an inhibition or request for self control: NOT to eat of the fruit of the tree of the "knowledge" of good and evil. The "fruit" results in shame and complete naive activity turned into fragments called "work". Included is a stated relationship with the reptilian brain as "cursed" to crawl on the ground. This is a horizontal dimension which can be seen as the sympathetic nervous system of vigilance and "fight or flight" predator structures. So what is rebellion against self organization? Is it being "influenced" by other sources: giving into fear states? The influence is not direct, but comes from "Eve", who was "self organized" from Adams rib. So this "Eve" is not the female of the species as is so often incorrectly interpreted, but Adams internal image of female which Carl Jung called the Anima. Thus the original "sin" has nothing to do with women, but with the original split of the wholeness of consciousness into a self and a map of the other. Replacing the real human person with the map and acting "as if" this map were the real person and then blaming "woman", as the object of the projection, for ones action is the "sin".
Symmetry of the "apple"
Cycles of arousal [QI] in the organ systems.
Mapping of this complex and "complete" energy ecology
of a whole "Day and night" onto a single moment of birth
as a simplification that allows information reduction. "Men"
spend less and less time involved in the "reality" of
life such as food, connecting with family and "health as
inner states", physical activity etc.. This "self"
is a "mask" - personality, protection - avoidance -
armor. This "self" owns objects like a my "woman",
my job, my children, my home because the self is itself an object
to be owned and controlled. [Thus the relevance of modern "object
oriented " computer programs like "windows" and
Biological systems create complexity by symmetry
breaking, and modern science looks for order in a rational universe
by looking for symmetry as unified systems. This search for symmetry
destroys the information of more complex asymmetrical - handed
bias systems. Today the "woman's movement" is another
destruction of information of the male/female asymmetrical structure,
which is not a polarity. Polarities are created as symmetrical
projections, not as true information.
Human self awareness arose as multiple levels
of resolution became available to consciousness. This is the logical
sequence, as distinct from being aware of procedures as multiple
steps resulting in specialization.
Additional support to this as the "primitives" procedures of human consciousness, namely symmetry creation as information destruction allowing multiple levels of resolution at the polarities. Thus, the projection of a 12 fold daily QI cycle onto a single moment of birth, made a transition from reptilian arousal of "heat of the day-night" cycle to the arousal to color as the linear frequency symmetry breaking as mythical stated in "LET THERE BE LIGHT". The color tests of Luscher and the color vision of our family "tree" show this transition from seeing and recognizing good and bad "food" objects by color which are stationary, to recognition of persons by their "colors - cloths" This suggests that the hunting Zodiac of animals is related to movement and black - white, and the comparison tropical signs is related to color and plants - fruits- gathering: a flower garden of the signs. Dance and movement and male emotion would be perihelion, and comparison, intellect, music and competition for scarcity as the nodes. This creation of scarcity or plenty is part of the reduction of complexity "primitive" of human consciousness.
Normal culture and "control":
The base vector of human culture is the extended
family. How is it constitute? What are its goals? What must the
individual "give up" for its success"?
Earth may be "shadow" or other half rebellion of Eve's apple.
Thus the use of the heliocentric and the development
of language comes from symmetry operations of projection and is
the ability / skill to construct procedures independent of the
cosmos as represented by the symbol "God". Eve as a
symbol takes on an "as-if" life of its own, since the
n.nets that this symbol points to evolves and self organizes.
Because of the "split", the persona is not in contact
with the self on the other side of the boundary of the division
of labor [between man and woman]. This division into "the
two" was continued as a fractal scaled mapping. The "two"
is a one dimensional cognitive process as explained elsewhere.
Symmetry and projection: the Apple.
The Yang and yin cycles are left and right handed relating to the convergent and divergent - diversity and resonant oneness. When "control" is introduced, "Yin" is replaced by a false yin which is a oppositional dependence projection of Yang. This is similar to the "Eve" created from Adam's [yang's] rib. Thus yin is seen as the submissive or compliant as when humans allow themselves to become subject to dominance by "others" or outside supervision. These "others" emerge from diversity that is feared as symbolized by the snake. Integration happens when one participates as an equal within "diversity" by disentangling the emeshment or attachments as codependent relationships. This extends to not only other persons, but also to work, possessions, activities, mood alteration, etc..
The next level of control comes from the replacement of Yang self organization by a mirror of the mirror Yin. The yang is condemned as the rebellious "devil" - serpent" which was inhibited - suppressed until the renaissance in the West. This oppositional bonding to Yang and fitting to Yin as obedience - control reverses the conjunctive resonance - oneness of Yang and the Oppositional competitiveness of the diversity - separational energy of Yin. The "true" yin/yang is the sharing - cooperation of single cells in a multi-cellular organism.
This avoidance of left-right cyclical numbers
as states allowed the abstract infinite counting numbers of positive
and negative. That this absurdity seems so common and rational
is a indication to me of how far my language brain is from "Absolute
Reality" as the Hindus call "natural systems".
This infinite counting is the start of the inflated "ego"
and inflated processes, where limits do not emerge from structure.
In this sense Numerology treats numbers as states, but without
the basins of attraction and excited stated.

>Monotheism perverts everything into objects thru the normalization process.
These words are actually living evolving creations, which are sentient beings, and we make them into things to manipulate. I see these inner persons as alive and powerful and I want to communicate with them and invite them to wake up. I won't abandon them to the internal criticisms of undigested - unexamined shared authorities of culture. Those of me that are resonant with authority - Capricorn - will resonate with the rest of us first and then lead authority, now try to join - be a success as approved by authority. This old approach was how I handled things when I was an authority as principle Bassist: me against them! I'm OK, Your Not OK, and let's see if the i' becomes capitalized. So my model of success is my interaction with B., not that B. expects me to use an unsuccessful old outdated model: I want her to help me clean-out more that my closet!!!
>Monotheism has caused considerable damage
to the human shared network. It has given the image of one god as one master personality, which means all other master personalities "must" be ignored or projected. Integration becomes impossible. I had a dream at 4 am that I was giving a lecture to other theologians, and 2 of them were upset with me. These were part of my master projected group. Their existence in my dream was the significant item. That we can have all these personas is also the message of Astrology. This monotheism requires to share too much sometimes and for some persons. I am the flamboyant one of the group, but other people project their creative part and cannot relate to me.
<The problem of inflation:
making myself more than human comes from
the idea of all powerful God as image of Man: namely the Ego
The culture of the Adult Child:
Jesus the son and God the father. Enlightenment and the mature mind: infant bonding attachments do not form mature relationship networks, but are part of all or nothing neural nets. Since Self Origination Mind is in all directions, it does not matter what is assimilated first. The task is to "see - feel" the real mind in each experience, not to "study" what others say it is. This total experience of "knowledge" produces interconnections which slowly emerge as "Buddha Mind", since Buddha is not a "hero - person", but a real - now - time connectedness of fragments of consciousness, called products of culture (work), into a coherent whole. This is an integrated synergy of traditional and modern, such as understanding Buddhist psychological and "mental" training as homomorphic mappings on specific areas of modern psychology as detailed below. Because each endeavor was created to solve different "problems", the "problems" drop out and what is left is a clearer understanding of the structure of "Mind". The original endeavors seem changed, but only insofar as they were `bonded' to the problem. The best illustration is the problem of `influence'. This was traditionally described by the single total system of Astrology, where as today it has split into two as environment or heredity. The traditional solution was `religion' as Buddhism or Christianity's freedom or salvation and Islam's' acceptance of the `Will of Allah'. The modern solution is some kind of `therapy'. The synergy is in the understanding of the difference between cultural and individual neural nets and their ability to `store' unexpressed feeling - mind, even over generations. These stores are indexed by an `active' information indexing using cycles of earth and the solar system. Thus we are back at `Astrology', but not as Fate, Karma or influence. After these attachments and counter attachments have been released, understanding of the extraordinary abilities and connectedness of the biosphere and the cosmos can begin.
The vampire myth [of drinking the blood of ready made answers. Same as preprocessed consciousness?]
is that all human culture is a passing
on of pain and dysfunctionallity. The drinking of the blood is
a metaphor for culture which serves up ready made answers just
as blood contains all the information and nutrients already manufactured
by the liver and other information endocrine organs. This is also
a metaphor for consciousness, which contains all the procedures
necessary for performance of the images as result - answer. The
liver - brain - heart are then like the empty space of cause where
the blood is manufactured, and the vampire - Christian is separated
from participation in creating their own reality, but must drink
of the reality of others as culture or as significant others.
Thus, in the goddess - god magic practice the empty point - heart
- liver is entered: This is called self-originating mind without
supervision in mathematical theory of neural nets or Buddha mind.
Even stronger that magic practice which implies a self and other
is being magic itself.
The meditation is also called and practiced by NLP as reframing which is reconnecting the "tinker toys".
My principle reframing is synergizing science and all spiritual disciplines - traditions.
This is also the problem of the west as Marx is a western context. [Cambodian letter]
How Marx failed to fully analyze `materialism' as the adult child of the dysfunctional middle ages caring on the Constantine tradition of control by scarcity as merging and codependance - love. Marx did not consider the necessity of an integrated society with proper inner controls (Buddhist religion and meditation) and outer attitude of confronting - assimilating change (science), not just accepting -accommodating as wishing - waiting for the change to `go away'. The profound fragmentation of diversity which is not integrated in the psychic life as in the western split of religion (inner psychic life) and science (diversity and evolution - development - experimentation) spawned specific problems of life in the West that Marx began to address. But the very problem that he addressed dysfunctionally overwhelmed him and his followers by transforming his thought into an ideology instead of an experiment. This is psycho - logical in the face of ACODC (adult children of dysfunctional culture) which continues the tradition of using thought patterns for control and power. This happened to Freud, Jung Americanism, Communism, etc.. Analysis is the reassigning of labels which totally ignores the psychic structure , which in the case of Cambodia changed the reattunement of traditional values (which happened consciously aware - awake in Japanese culture of 1860-) into a runaway dysfunctional power manipulation, treating people like weeds and flowers.
Wasn't this mixed in with the Hiterliarian
ideology of genetic purity? If so the psycho - logic of extermination
becomes clear. The thought was that fault some how resided in
genetics and family. Not seeing a systems approach. This clarifies
the racial theories of the 1900's as a clear example of fusion
of ACODC and science (allbeit, bad science) and their subsequent
use by racists as continuation (passing it on) of dysfunction.
Especially in the case of Jewish culture which has a unified psychic
life and thus was easily able to assimilate the diversity of modern
science, and conversely was impossible to control. The effect
of the evolution of technology contraventionally ( intervenes
in the psychic life to mold it in a certain way) moved American
and Western culture to a closer resemblance ( congruent with)
to Judaic Culture minus gOD (or goODd).
Self assertion as a tool is contradictory when the idea of having a self or soul is taboo.
Self defined as those mental and emotional internal structures which allow a being to participate in culture.
Marxists analysis of ideology applied to Buddhist assumptions about reality that are inferred from use of a technique.
Not to confuse Cambodian (spirit) accomplishments in peaceful living with totalitarian ideal. Because the viewpoint of a Cambodian does not include divisiveness does not imply that diversity is not needed. (The word chaos is not helpful). Seems Pol Pot expected mass following because of miss information about West and creativity used assertively. (need full personality profile and history).
The shared misunderstanding of Western culture
as materialistic along with the basic background in self awareness
contributed to revulsion at western culture's lack of respect
of ones personal boundaries. The intrusiveness and shaming must
have been intense. The anger produced was the first sign of health.
The fury at being rejected by his people was further shame and
usually develops into dysfunctional abuse. The peasants are not
OK and must be forcefully changed was the incorrect conclusion.
Marxists analysis that forceful overthrowal and dictatorship and
education became abuse and revenge. (Didn't he admire Hitler?)
Marxists analysis was incorrect as shown by simple competition
and self initiative. What is correct is the analysis of mind as
needing creativity and diversity, which the totalitarian dictatorship
ignored. Support for all people's special contribution is necessary,
so that there is not over emphasis on the importance of one area
such that other areas cannot flourish ( cannot pay for if wealth
accrues too much in one area, such as medicine or landlords or
utilities or speculation)
The Buddhist technique of responsibility for ones inner states of mind is brilliant and no matter how badly it became distorted, produces lifestyles free of western style stress.
Communist Idea of changing the conditions
of life and not just helplessly acceptance of traditional structures
is also important. The union of these ideas is in calm working
together for building a nation, using the inner traditional techniques,
but discarding the Buddhist ideology. To say there is no self
is a statement of freedom to create any self one chooses. This
was the first action of my enlightenment. Here in America we say
we can choose to do anything we set our mind on. We do not have
to follow tradition of country, family, or anything outside ourselves.
And we can join together to govern ourselves when that freedom
is threatened. (And it is threatened by speculation and money
power. The solution is to offer growth in other ways: instead
of collecting money, creating what precious art money can buy).
Buddhist aversion and misunderstanding of passion, emotion, and creating a solution instead of using a technique:
The belief that internal upsets are bad and
should be eliminated is setting up a self to watch over these
and an ethic or morality. This is to constantly blame oneself
or have self quilt (feel not OK) as the `bad guy'. When correctly
practiced one loses codependance and outer events no longer result
in being uncentered. One knows oneself and ones needs and how
to meet those needs without blaming oneself or others. But when
made into a ideology one creates cultural and also internalized
guardians against the dreaded emotions. Emotions as wisdom and
power. Mental thoughts, emotions, actions or any habit can become
attached to or aversion from in a fixed way. This merging of self
with an object or fragmenting of self in order to avoid the `bad'
and thus limiting or reducing the scope of action is the real
problem. Thus to confuse anger with aversion or love with clinging
is the problem. This confusion is the poison of bewilderment and
leads to vacillation and inaction. Desire and anger are proper
and necessary to know ones boundaries and direction for growth.
The technique for reducing inappropriateness or inelegance or
for gaining skillfulness in situations as taught by Buddhist traditions
can be respected and used in the development of the whole Cambodian
society, But must never again be idologized as the `meaning of
ones life activities'. People can reach the goals that emotion
as the divine light reveals as their personal dance of life (fun,
joy) with serenity, but serenity and inaction, changelessness
are not the goal. IS not the first truth that life is change (chaos)
and are not the developments of western culture about the structure
of change. Then Cambodian culture is equipped to deal with change
as long as they are not trying to make inner change the enemy.
is that emotion and self will are merged as lunar cycle. Western tradition is solar will from solar houses to construct ones self as willing life or control of life and this is codependent on `self' as a solution and then on competition or cooperative competition. Japan's solution is group activity as not codependent because of strong sense of private self beyond which others may not venture. Shaming others is strongest taboo, yet desire and anger are strengths with skill (as in bushido) The point is to not create a self censoring `self', but to allow spontaneous expression of feelings with full power respected. This is the `I' statements in 12 step context when skillful.]
[The alphabet of planetary elements including
focused cycles of Saturn \ Jupiter in East or Uranus \ Neptune
in West is the matrix of chaos from which cultures form themselves.
It is not absolute that the planetary nodes fit the constellations
fit the mind, but is only the west's creation of mind. Moslem
culture use the lunar mansions in constellations as feeling -
The American idea that the basest feelings and lowest common point is the beginning for self governing can be applied: not the elitist and intrusive, self blaming control oriented government. The checks and balances are that no one segment of culture will control others, either those whose creativity is mental, physical or sensational. The changes come from within and are changes of structure, not of working around bad structures with patches. (although this is not followed in some areas)
Science: I have been framing Buddhism as a scientific psychology,
which it is not in its traditional form. It arose at a time before the scientific method, and although it shares many of the characteristics of modern methods, the writings primarily addressed the need for healing and maturity as will as transcendence. It can be best characterized by Western categories as a University: a loosely connected group of schools, each with their own methods and curriculum, but without exclusiveness that has come to characterize Judaio-Christian and Islam attitudes. One of the Buddhas' is to test everything yourself: to take nothing by faith or on others authority. That is exactly what I have personally done with all traditional teachings, Western and Asian. My strongest aptitude was in science and mathematics, but I developed myself as a Classical Symphonic musician, and was practicing my profession, when at age 22 I had the first of many enlightenment experiences upon my first encounter with the Buddhist "Heart" Sutra. I have not "become a Buddhist" because I recognized that such a step was not in harmony with my enlightenment which introduced me to self originating mind which does not need or want supervision, even from others who may also be in touch with theirs. I then realized that my TASK was to bring congruence between science, "religious traditions" and realms of intelligence and spirit that are not accessible to science because of the conditions from which science arose at the Renaissance. There is a great split and war - enmity between science and any suggestion, let alone a theory that intelligence has a global - cosmic organization - structure.
On the side of science, I recognize it as a great spiritual power: it is built upon sharing of information, growth and openness, trust that the "world" is basically Mind, without being mystical. Science is experimental, not frozen in tradition and answers. The awareness of the importance of the importance of the correct question, and the mature attitude toward knowledge and the process of knowing equals the best Buddhist thinkers. But there is still a split between the objects of science and any application to ones' self: there are still discrete departmentalization between the humanist and "hard" sciences. Interdependence and cooperation as well as competition are important in the discovery process.
The name Buddhi refers to Mind that is enlightened.
This focus in and of itself shows where the strongest values and priorities reside. So why have all the emphasis come to represent an emotional focus, such as suffering, desire, right conduct, and compassion? The Buddhist traditional writings were translated by Western scholars with a bias built into their focus, namely, escape from Christianity. But their so-called objectivity did not escape from the major Western, Aristotelian system of classification, which is regarded in Asia as a hindrance. The classifications of Buddhism as a "religion" was made long before the rise of modern psychology of family systems and linguistics, so there was no way to "understand" Buddhist thought and Asian culture. Buddhist teaching starts at birth by Buddhist families which are very careful about shaming their children or instilling guilt. The children are taught to solve problems and to emulate the first of many great psychologists in so many areas. It really does a disservice to use any western word to label Buddhism as cognitive psychology, or any other healing art. Certainly I cannot find an idea of "unconscious" in Asian culture because there was no attempt at repression of children. So what is all this emphasis on the "goodness" of desirelessness?
Buddhism recognizes 3 major ways of dysfunctional relating to others and self called the three poisons of desire, aversion, and bewilderment. They are called poisons or toxins, not evil or bad. This is a simple and immediate cause and effect relationship, not having consequences for an immortal soul that will burn in hell forever. My translation of the meaning of these 3 poisons is from the work of Eric Bern of Transactional Analysis, especially the idea of NOT OK-ness. The Buddhist poison of desire produces craving, attachment, and addiction to a person, substance or thing which is more OK than myself. I give myself away, put myself in bondage to the object of "desire" I obsess over it. I am no longer important. This is not repression of feeling, because feeling is part of mind in the concept of heart - mind. This is not a suppression of goal oriented behavior, because will and action are one with consciousness. There is no suppression of desire creating subconscious desires, as in Western Culture, because there is no mind body split. When something cannot be done immediately, there is recognition of that, without childlike tantrums, because the act of patience is also an act of willingness and responsibility and acceptance of the structure of the situation. Patience does not become a control issue of holding back wild horses. There is recognition that in the proper time and place the mind and wild horses will act together. One is not mental sometimes and emotional - feeling at other times: the two act together. So the Western immaturity cannot find the feeling, because mature feeling is none other than wisdom!!!
the second Buddhist poison is aversion which
I see as YOUR NOT OK-ness. The haughty, immodesty of judgment
and blame. This goes to the point of immature thinking such as
all or nothing ------
The legend of Buddha: Self originating Mind and neural nets.
This book looks at the Buddhist traditions
in light of the construction of neural nets without supervision.
The characteristics of these abstract mathematical objects which
are presently successfully used in speech, written character and
image recognition, as well as much new computer "smart"
hardware and software. This is giving insights into possible brain
organization, as well as for me, possible organization of groups
of humans and human society. There are many intrinsic - structural
reports in Buddhist writings which point to the personal experience
of "Mind" as having two major divisions: neural nets
with supervision and self-organizing neural nets without supervision
which arrive at results along "chaotic" paths. The same
results are arrived at by different humans at different times
along different paths with unpredictable, nonlinear circumstances.
The cultural, ordinary mind is trained, educated, supervised by
family and schools by competition and the behavioral manipulation
of reward - punishment. The characteristics of neural nets with
these structures is predictable because of the stability of the
training set. It would be easy to project these abstract structures
onto humans, but for one major drawback: there is no adequate
"scientific" way the brain can be configured to produce
these nets. Since "supervised" learning obviously takes
place in human groups, with and without the use of language, these
network structures will be looked for as interpersonal connectivities.
The group is primary in the development of the human cultural
experience. That is the group is not made up of individuals as
seems so obvious, but the individual "self" is a dysfunction
of the group: a process of breakdown and fragmentation. The energy
of human bonding to family and other groups at later developmental
stages is "evidence" of these extra-personal networks
and connections: at birth we are in a state of readiness to connect
- bond and our brain does not complete its development until this
bonding is complete.
The subsystems which connect with the group
are non supervised unique individual collections of inter-personal
neural nets. The experience of Buddhists and others that is refereed
to as "enlightenment", I believe is a usually sudden
or sometimes gradual turning away from this other-bonding to a
intra personal awakening to the self originating non supervised
functioning of our neural networks which are not connected with
the person playing a role in a family structure since birth: the
unborn, unoriginated ground of being which can construct any self
or mind it chooses. The original human condition comes with no
mind already formed, only with connectors and functions with which
to build a mind, like a tinker-toy set.
The book will deal with a more precise description
of neural nets, with an explanation of Buddhist experiences in
these lights, with my personal account of my enlightenment experience,
with the cultural differences of Western and Asian childrearing
practices which have a bearing on our educational system and with
language differences - how humans cut the pie of human experience
so differently that word for word translations of the experience
into different languages has so failed. I shall not necessarily
devote separate chapters to each "topic", but I shall
mix parts of each topic in each chapter, referring to the topic
headings. The real mind is not so neat, orderly and leaner, but
is circular and fuzzy, so I will treat it as such.
First, the Legend of the Buddha:
Buddha's birth was predicted by Astrologers.
The royal family into which he was born kept him from encountering "bad" experiences: He was sheltered, protected and in modern terms abused by denial of reality.
So when he was already developed, he stumbled onto the experiences of suffering and sorrow found in encountering death, disease, loss, old age ----. No wonder he had a self originated awakening to these things which turned around the conditioning of his family of origin.
Seeing that he had been deprived of contact with the "truth" of the world, how things really are, he set off on his own to check it out for himself.
For years he looked to others as teachers to reveal this truth to him, but all other paths failed.
But here is where his extraordinary qualities came to the front. In stead of believing something was wrong with him, he decided the "supervised by others" approach and all the diverse unique paths, as many as there were teachers, where leading him away from himself.
He sat down alone under the "famous" bodhi tree, and willed himself not to get up until ???
So finally he gave his self originating mind a chance to fit the pieces together for himself! And soon enough they did!
When the Buddha was born,
so goes the legion, He took seven steps, pointed
with his left arm to heaven, and his right arm to earth, and said
"Between heaven and earth, I am the most honored One!".
This is not the image of the birth of Jesus in a manger, but of
a toddler who's "birth" was the coming out of the womb
of the family of origin and separating from mother with his first
words, first steps and first self reflective thoughts. He announced
his own new boundaries of heaven and earth, the common boundaries
of every human. This birth at the bodhi tree, is called psychological
second birth (or sometimes "coming out" of hiding) in
The Buddhist traditions
now take over, and present the unique solutions that he started to come up with, like the 4 noble truths and 8 fold path as supervised training. Another Cultural artifact handed down and practiced without change be the unenlightened who believe that by practicing the "way of the Buddha" they to will achieve his enlightened state. And so it goes, around and around, following the outside traditional teaching without any "faith" in self originated mind! But this has been hashed and rehashed by each newly enlightened person when others try to make them teacher, guide, master, etc. Their shouts always push others away from bonding with them: the best teacher is no teacher.
This the teachings of the Buddha became institutionalized and incorporated in the social fabric of Asian culture: in child rearing practices and appropriate behaviors. For instance, causing others to be hurt or shamed is a personal "sin" to be avoided at all costs. Thus Asians will "lie" or anticipate others suffering and avoid openness and truth. This produces excellent results in children, and allows persons to develop at their own pace, and guilt is almost nonexistent. But it also creates stronger social bonds, harder to break in the enlightenment process of self discovery.
This book is about "mind", a word that does not exist in Asian cultures. The word that they use is best translated as will - mind awareness of feeling - heart. This heart-mind includes the structure of action as well as the intelligence - awareness and the prediction of the outcome of action that we call feeling - intuition. Many other words have different meanings: especially compassion and suffering. Compassion as a part of mind has empathy as the mental - intuitive aspect. We can put ourselves in the place of the other without mind reading, I share my own experience with the other as my empathy - even if it means admitting that I have no common experience. In sharing I am constructing understanding, not judgment or status. The heart - will aspect of compassion requires respect and discipline to not indulge in sympathy and benevolence, both of which imply a higher to lower judgment as pity. Further, sympathy allows the others burden to be taken on by myself, which further injures the other persons self reliance as well as implying that I will be responsible for another, which is impossible. I can be supportive and accepting, but I can only fix my own problems.
The first sermon of the Buddha
was the 4 noble truths. The first truth is
called the "truth of suffering": the essentially problem
of life is suffering - discontent. But suffering does not correctly
characterize what is meant, which is dysfunction. Emotional dysfunction
results in suffering, mental dysfunction results in dissatisfaction,
and physical dysfunction results in various illnesses. The second
truth is pinpointing the cause of suffering as attachment grasping,
desire, which is bonding.
Suffering as deprivation of expectations that "wired" into our brain.
The `right brain' operates in space or environment
as neural net representations of extended family, village and
activities or skills, which are interconnections between the two.
When there are no actual objects in ones environment that match
these representations, a depravation state arises called anxiety
- suffering, craving or stimulus hunger. (root of dependencies
as substitute stimulus, i.e. DRUGS)
Music got so loud that we couldn't hear each other.
Thus we over do - [high is good - more is better] excess sound [drowning in sensation of sound] and become helpless to be interdependent. Thus we become dependent on signals - conductors for coordination and we only have our thoughts - and sometimes cannot even hear ourselves - be self aware - for feedback and adjustment: we are helpless when we drown in ego and sensation.
Thus we "need" ego - master!
This is model of child rearing practice of dependence on "training & habit"; and culture - which power became & is Science as Law, and such excess of information that no one can master it all or talk to it - beyond the scale of being human!!
OVERWHELMING! THUS THE NEED FOR DIVISION AND FRAGMENTATION!
School - culture and science is participating in a sea - ocean of facts which we are forced to store in our head as undigested - unassimilated; and which thwart communication and connection - but encouraged competition and evaluation and dependency on more facts packaged in consumer products which foster dependency and passivity, and put down self organization and wisdom. Just knowledge and manipulation.
WHAT DOES THIS DO TO OUR SELF ESTEME OR SKILLS AND SELF RELIANCE!
Jazz is touching and talking.
Rock as snake is pure sensation! Thus very
Heaps and skandhas:
Card Games and suits: in Buddhist psychology, the self is constructed of 5 "skandhas", which are form, feeling - sensation, perception - recognition, volition - patterns of reaction, and object consciousness. This object consciousness is primarily of categories bound by like and dislike. The word "skandha" means heap or stack, which implies sequences of similar experiences stacked - organized. The most primitive stacking is the organization by form. Frames and boundaries are connected as outlines of structure without content or meaning. The feeling can be attached, but also feelings have their own organization or stack that leads in different directions. These boundaries have threshold characteristics: when an event crosses a level of intensity or closeness or a piece of information that does not belong in our inner dictionary of acceptable - known experience, a trigger of arousal goes off which is organized around prior forms in similar situations. This is clearly needed for survival. But psychology in the West also shows us where hyper alertness can trigger defense reactions when only the form is present, as in the tone of voice or posture of another. Then we react not to a whole situation.
attachment & 3 poisons
This can be understood by the example of one who changes their opinions to please others or even what they think others want, or one who ignores all possibilities of success and blames others for their failures in order to keep their fixed views - organization. They have too few options, whereas the changeable one has no answers of their own. This condition must be differentiated from the cycle state of bewilderment, where too many answers are known with no good way to choose action without opposition.
The cycles themselves are not found in one place, but three simultaneously. This can never be decided as a single clear unequivocal meaning. Fuzziness is built into the system. But without this type of separately arriving at three or six solutions to every situation in the biology of vision, primates could not have color vision, since this process is to separate and determine the amount of three primary colors and then combine them into one "experience". This is a kind of color vision for the personally)
The third poison is bewilderment, which I call mystification and enmeshment
where I'M NOT OK and YOUR NOT OK. Here nothing happens, because no direction is OK. What happens is lots of thinking, worry, contemplation, justification, rationalization, rules and norms of conduct. No trust of my own mind, nor of the uniqueness of the situation. Therefore reduce it to a principle that can be applied without feeling for self or other. The first poison has no feeling - trust for self, and the second has no understanding, support, empathy or acceptance of others.
Not moralistic and evil.

but those areas of armor as cut off and defended - retreat from energy are in that realm as is the realm of Titans which is proactive armor - the sword and great achievements to appease the feeling of worthlessness and low esteem from group? This happened in Bass playing and from the "abuse - relationship" of music teachers like family. Going further, the realm of animals as mechanical routine and fragmentation - specialization with strong thick walls, especially in the operational behavior of science and behaviorists and University Industrial complex. The Heaven realm of pride is relaxed self assurance: [master of performance or creator - self originating?] The Hell realm is I'm not OK, Your Not OK.[?] Heaven = Both OK? Human realm is [?] development, tradition and family - sex? The next generation - children is the hope.
Thus I exits in all the realms and [?] have a different chart for each. Each is a different level of reality with different dynamics and personality.

same because of vow. The left and right hand are also female and
male models. This is a very no-critical model.
There is a solution
which is separation from the dysfunctional bonding and seeing that only I alone can face the suffering without the illusion of bonding. The suffering, uncertainty, sorrow, anger does not disappear: only the dysfunctional ways of dealing with it.
The 4th noble truth is the 8 fold path of
skillful means and wisdom applied to the major areas of our lives.
One step at a time to complete the unfinished business of childhood
in my path to being a complete, real human being. As path, and
steps there is a gradual advancement, development and progression.
As steps and stages there is a sudden, discrete, quanta, quality
as boundaries are established and crossed one at a time. As I
let go of my Not OK-ness, I get in touch with my inner self originating
mind. At first this mind reveals itself as a small child: a toddler
of the terrible twos. I have separated from old acculturated,
family of origin ways of behaving. There is no cultural structure
to take it's place and I must provide and build those structures.
I can then tread the path as teacher or as parent and look for
a discipline which mirrors the qualities and acceptance that I
need. Thus often the beginning stages of path look like an outside,
imposed authoritarian establishment cookbook with all the answers.
And sometimes I may get involved in just such organizations, especially
when they duplicate some of the conditions of my family of origin
that I have not yet let go of. I was fortunate to be guided to
a teacher who didn't teach me anything, but modeled, showed and
shared his life. He provided a frame inside of which I could assemble
my fragmented pieces and discover and accept mySelf. Like a picture
frame with no discernible picture inside, but I suspect that something
is there, or why would there be a frame? At first I polish and
control, but that only seems to make the hardened shit shinny.
And this ""modern abstract work of art" can be
sold to others. Then, since my dysfunctional ways are still in
place, I try the "fire method" of intensity and excitement
- stress. Then I can bake the new accretions onto the old surface.
We they get hard enough and curl at the edges with problems, they
will drop away on their own, if I quit trying to patch them back
on. Finally a beautiful picture of me emerges, and I go around
showing everyone, trying to get the self acceptance that I never
got from family from others. It's me looking at the picture, and
the picture is looking at the world. But then someone acknowledges
and accepts me, and I wake up to not needing the picture anymore,
and turn to face the world directly.
8 fold path
was only those things that became "dysfunctional codependent" at that time of cultural development in 500 BC.
Livelihood which did not become ones identity - self.
Action: human being, not human doing
Understanding as empathy, not restriction.
Thought with all senses and as landscape - surface. not from a subject - object.
Speech of listening.
Effort that does not try.
Mindfulness without vigilance.
Ignorance is the essence of concentration.
Truth of solution and path : extinguish
attachment and identification with control and manipulation. "there
is no path, no meditation ..."
Understanding the connections and integrating ones private and public or social self brings 'true' peace, strength and will power. False strengthening of repressive internal control can only result in sickness or worse projection on family or society of this root of violence. First we must give up (or "abstain from" said Walters) control. This is not easy since we don't even know where and what control is! ... We think we are making mistakes, when the perception is the interruption of the process of development. We believe most of all that if we stop controlling we will lose it. We will fall apart, when actually we are already apart and will more likely experience a new unity, a falling together.
The further consequences of fragmentation are boredom and 'habit'. Imposing will successfully results in learned tasks becoming automatic, done seemingly without conscious thought or attention. We 'lose' interest. This is also a result of fragmentation, for those parts of ourselves never participated in the process, so why should they find any interest in it now? So part of giving up control is allowing yourself to regain interest in life. Finding new connections and viewpoints with parts of your daily routine. Imbuing them with feeling, energy and spontaneity: PLAY or EXPERIMENTATION.
It is exciting to find cause and effect where before you saw fate and resignation; thinking that your life is only an accident with no solution. The first step of the scientific method is observation without interference. Ask yourself how things got that way, and allow yourself to see and feel and hear what happens. So in these classes we start with some part of yourself and provide you with tools for analyses of the connections to the whole, not with ready made answers or meanings. We do not read charts for you, but allow you to reveal those meanings for yourself, with our respect and support. This first stage is designed to reveal the extent and nature of our forcing of control and self manipulation; and to admit to ourselves that it fails and leaves us helpless. This is accomplished by our own examination and feelings. We freely admit our dysfunction and its history.
The second step is to gain a glimpse of the power of our inner unity, for everyone has times of the experiencing of this 'higher power' when we far outdid our expectations, when we felt a connection to a greater whole. Our classes will support this by providing a clearer understanding of consciousness and by showing how to further apply the tools learned in the first step.
In the third step we will start the process of trusting ourselves in letting go of control in our lives. Tools for doing this in a controlled setting without fear of falling apart are plentiful. We will continue to deepen the experiences of the first two steps.
The next step is one of growth and development. When we begin to realize our own uniqueness, we begin to see to true nature of what we previously termed our shortcomings. These in effect are easily discarded because they are no longer needed as solutions or they are re-owned as inverted parts of previously repressed parts of ourselves now being integrated into a unified self.

Centering as SUCHNESS.
Everything is SUCHNESS, unique and belonging to unique situations
The making of concepts and categories is considered
a judgment to be avoided. Everything is SUCHNESS, unique and belonging
to unique situations with unique ancestors as chains of cause
and effect. Therefore every human problem has unique individual
solutions and structures. Avoidance arises when I believe I am
better than, more perfect, rather than unique. Change is part
of everything, so solutions also change. Disgust and revolution
are feelings that are supported by mind which does not ignore
and avoid awareness of a situation, thus firm boundaries can be
established based on respect and understanding. Self protection
is to not become involved in unpleasant situations, not in needing
to judge the situation as not OK.

goes beyond limits. It is global =-> transcendental. It goes beyond irritation and defense of irritation. Strong full stimuli are irritating, too much intensity, too much complexity: so human personality is a filter to reduce the complexity, to lower the intensity - to make "things" manageable - easy to manipulate and control. Human culture loses the strength of feeling and sensation, animal and reptilian brain, to control. The effect of a crowd - mob "mentality" is permission to connect with full human strength, no matter what the doctrine. In fact, the less thought involved, the greater the power - energy.
So compassion is going beyond the irritating
quality of complete energy by accepting it - embracing it and
communicating with it. Listening as well as being open.
One new model of the nature of Time
as an instantaneous energy field with density
structure developed by the Russian Astrophysicist N. A. Kozyrev
wit be introduced. This model was ignored by the Western Establishment,
but the Soviet government created a large secret research facility
for continuation of this work. It provides a possible rational
explanation for magic and psychic phenomena as well as 2,000 year
old Buddhist - Taoist philosophy of sunyata - emptiness and the
holographic nature of reality. Science doesn't even acknowledge
the existence of mind, much less show any possibility of MIND
ONLY as many in all cultures have suggested over the centuries.
There is a difference between recognizing science on its terms
and using assimilating science from a broader perspective: from
The time field is denser near the cause point, and thinner near the effect point. It can't be shielded like the electromagnetic field. This is primarily the realm of Chi. In other words, Chi has to do more with time than with space. Things happen in this field instantaneously. There was no propagation. Here the preciseness of what Kordzierev was saying, and what is verified by other mystics, etc. That there's a density of this time field around a effect space, and a sparseness, thinness, around the cause. As synaptic micro-events happen, a change of density takes place that would interact as an interference pattern in holographic "mind". Thus "mind" is taking place in the time field with the "physical world" being the hardware generator. This is a new direction for research.

Science, method and Self.
The tape given me
has the technique, but the substance has created
a self to deal with a self and is totally entropic in its impact
on Western mind. It is a curious exercise in futility creating
only accommodation and passive aggressive behaviors!
I would like to include some of my findings about one of the central issues raised by that video: what is the cause of suffering. I propose that grasping or `lust after the senses' or thirst, desire, greed, craving (tanha) is only a symptom of a basic derivation and abuse of the mind - brain caused by acculturation. The development of culture and language requires the inhibition and dominance of the `lower - older midbrain' and its intelligence, which appear as emotion and feeling. Thus, in learning to live in our root culture humans literally starve this `inner child' of normal expression and acknowledgment that the solutions arrived at by this area of our beings is also `intelligence', not some evil `lust' which causes our suffering. The result of this ignoring of ones own `Buddha nature' is that that part of us attaches itself to any input available, like a starving man. The solution to starvation is to give with kindness fully nourishing food that is appropriate to the real need, not to kill (extinguish, cessation, Tanhakkhaya) the patient! Dealing with the real needs is fully dealt with in the study of family systems as I introduced you to in the works of John Bradshaw.
Certainly, this is a human `problem', and I fully understand that other cultures where Buddhism is the principle `religion' have handled this problem differently (Japan). Nor do I in any way disparage the accomplishments of any culture: we are all human and only human. I repeat that I wish that the skills that have been acquired by Buddhists monks by made available to all of mankind. I would personally be overjoyed if a dialogue could be opened between myself and anyone who wishes to share those skills with me. I have shared freely to the point that I felt I was being received as an IMPOSING SELF - SEEKER.
I have included some of my thoughts in the spirit of sharing. Share them with who you will.
Result in psychology of TORI
Levels of environmental quality and 6 realms
and Tone scale
The Buddhist view of everyday life as suffering
is best understood by the many people who alter their consciousness upon waking in the morning by using coffee or other stimulants. My life needs altering before I am ready to face the world, and my simple consciousness is not functional enough. This everyday world and my all the internal messages, plus the backlog of unfinished business - incomplete development stages, ungreived sorrows is like a cesspool out of which arises the lotus flower of an alert activity oriented consciousness. This driven consciousness continues until various forms of exhaustion set in and I am right back where I started from. This cyclical process is called Samsara, and perfect freedom, liberation, and salvation is called nirvana. This last term is well known in the west as a goal of the "saintly" life: The Webester Dictionary defines nirvana as "the dying out of the heart of passion, hatred and delusion. This emancipation involves a beatific spiritual condition, and freedom from the necessity of future transmigration." and " Oblivion to care, pain, or external reality." The "dying out of passion" etc. are the dying out of the three poisons. The beatific condition refers to delight in every moment and self acceptance on a deep level, including the pain, anger, love - bonding feelings which are allowed to come and go as clouds and the sun do their dance.
