Superpowers of The Human Biomind
Vis-a-vis the Probabilities of Extraterrestrial Intelligence
by Ingo Swann
A dispassionate survey of definitions of the human mind reveals that although a small variety of its aspects are identified, the sum of all of the definitions leaves many more refined aspects in the shadows.
This includes modern scientific definitions,
And even occult and esoteric definitions as well.
None of the definitions of the mind are wrong per se,
But the definitional process of identifying the larger nature of the mind is incomplete,
And probably vastly so.
10 Ways to Avoid Brainwashing
If we don’t own our minds, we’re like pawns in a game where we’re not the player. We’re being played. Corporations, governments, advertisers and even religions have gone to great lengths to control your mind. Sometimes their tactics are obvious, but most of the time they are downright sneaky.
If we want to ensure that we’re living for ourselves and not serving some corporation’s agenda, we have to put on our mental armor. We have to arm our minds so we can first know when their is an assault on our sovereignty.
Here are 10 tools you can...
Meta-awareness is derived from the work of developmental psychologist, John Flavell, who coined the term "metacognition" (ca. 1975) to describe a phenomenon where a person has cognition about cognition or, stated another way, thinking about thinking.
Meta-awareness is modern academia's term for the ancient concept of Detachment. While faliling to note this earlier, Eastern, source, Wikipedia...
Gurdjieff and Hypnosis | A Hermeneutic Study
This book was selected to accompany the two posts above: “Mass Formation and Totalitarian Thinking in This Time of Global Crisis” [LINK] and “Trance-Formation” by Max Igan [LINK]. I could have used only Chapter Four of this book, “The ‘Organ Kundabuffer’ Theory of Human Disharmonization” to accomplish this “other perspective” on Mass/Trance-Formation, but as Gurdjieff noted,
“If you go on a spree then go the whole hog including the postage.”
As time passes and events unfold, I become more and more convinced that what Gurdjieff ‘acquired’ and passed on to posterity was a Limited Hangout by advanced...
Your Seventeen Senses
by Ingo Swann
There exists what we might call a Particular Situation regarding psychic or metaphysical perceptions. This Particular Situation consists of three aspects or parts.
FIRST: During the modern past, the real existence of psi faculties was rejected within science, psychology and psychiatry. The rejection was based in a number of factors which seemed rational and logical in the scientific past and thus achieved wide acceptance in scientific, academic and media mainstreams of the twentieth century.
SECOND: Those factors which seemed rational and logical in the past have now been superseded by significant scientific discoveries and advances which...
Mind wandering is ubiquitous to the human experience and may be the brain's default process. It is an occurrence that 96% of American adults say they experience daily, and it occupies up to 50% of the waking day.
There is an intimate, dynamic interplay between mind wandering and metacognition.
Metacognition serves to correct the wandering mind, suppressing spontaneous thoughts and bringing attention back to more "worthwhile" tasks.
Mass Formation and Totalitarian Thinking in This Time of Global Crisis

Even if we would succeed in waking up the masses now, they would fall prey to a different story in a few years. And they would be hypnotized again, IF, IF we do not succeed in solving the real problem of this crisis. Namely the question: Why did we as a society get in this state in which a large part of the population feels anxious, depressed, experiences a lack of sense, feels socially isolated? That is the real problem. And if we do...

"We have created this society, not each one of us but our past generations. We have, those, and us, have created this present immoral, destructive society and we are trapped by that society. That society was made by each one of us, so we are responsible for that society. Whether, it is possible, not to change society, but is it possible to radically, deeply transform our condition, which is, understand deeply, our consciousness, which is what we are. Is it possible to transform, not into something, but to change, bring about a mutation in the...
STO, STS, and Densities
This article explains the system of “densities”, “Service-to-Self”, and “Service-to-Others” as discussed in the Ra Material and Cassiopaean Transcripts and shows how they relate to the occult concepts of the etheric and astral planes. Instead of summarizing what’s already been said, my aim here is more to provide new insights and resolve some common misunderstandings.
Many regard consciousness as the final frontier of science. Although science has produced a great deal of knowledge about the brain and the nervous system, it did not (yet) produce a viable theory of consciousness.
There is the seemingly intractable problem that consciousness cannot be measured, detected, or quantified in any way.
To further complicate things, consciousness is about inner (first-person) experience and its subjective qualities, whereas science relies on ideas and experiences that can be observed and verified by third parties.
The investigation of inner phenomena involves subjective, idiothetic accounts, whereas the investigation of outer phenomena involves objective, verifiable accounts. It...
Consciousness: a Fundamental Building Block of the Universe
Click to view larger video
In this wonderful TED talk, the philosopher David Chalmers invites for a new paradigm in science in which consciousness is established as a fundamental and possibly universal building block of nature.
Consciousness is a fundamental aspect of our existence. There’s nothing we know about more directly… but at the same time it’s the most mysterious phenomenon in the universe.
Is Your God a Devil?
It is one of the most familiar and reassuring lines in scripture:
The Lord is my shepherd.
But when you think about it, the metaphor is a disturbing one.
It’s true that a shepherd looks after his sheep. But he also shears them and kills them and eats them. Does the God we adore act totally with our best interests at heart, or are we a species of livestock that he uses for his own ends?
Consciousness and the Direction of Structure
The molecular origins of our species wide insanityThe fundamental causality of our self inflicted suffering
Solving the mystery of human evolution using Darwin’s basic theory required no more than a simple reinterpretation of existing data and the application of basic biological principles.
The same approach simultaneously resolves several other major enigmas in disciplines rarely considered within the same context. By following in the footsteps of William of Ockham taking the path of least resistance leads to a simple, coherent and elegant explanation for our unique physiological traits and sheds much needed light on the state of our...
The Ultimate Deception
If anyone takes a really good look at our world today they surely can hardly deny that there is something wrong with this picture.
How many people question our state of evolution and its professed history?
Unfortunately we can be programmed to view a negative existence as normal or natural.
If we can observe these undesirable elements and recognise them as not part of a properly evolving world, then we can be sure the more realistic situation is one which is much worse.
That is, the discrepancies are much greater.
Programming can not only successfully brainwash anyone to...
Why Great Minds Can't Grasp Consciousness
At a physics meeting last October , Nobel laureate David Gross outlined 25 questions in science that he thought physics might help answer. Nestled among queries about black holes and the nature of dark matter and dark energy were questions that wandered beyond the traditional bounds of physics to venture into areas typically associated with the life sciences.
One of the Gross's questions involved human consciousness.
He wondered whether scientists would ever be able to measure the onset consciousness in infants and speculated that consciousness might be similar to what physicists call a...
Cultivating Consciousness in an Unconscious World
Politicians constantly evade the truth. Why can they get away with it? According to a recent study conducted at Harvard University, it’s because people have such terrible attention spans.
Behavioural scientist Todd Rogers of the Harvard Kennedy School and Michael I. Norton of the Harvard Business School conducted a simple experiment to see when and whether people can detect a dodge. They recorded a speaker answering a question about universal health care (a controversial issue in the US). Then they attached the same answer to three separate questions: the original question about health care, one on illegal drug...
Consciousness and Experience
Humans are alleged to have consciousness. I say “alleged” not because I doubt the assertion but because the term “consciousness” is, in my opinion, terribly misused. It has many meanings, and people employing the term don’t usually make clear what meaning they are using; instead they simply assume that others know what they are talking about. A great danger of this approach is that one can use the same term in different senses and thereby assert things that actually make no sense. I prefer to speak of being conscious rather than of consciousness. “Consciousness” is a noun and...
