  • The Cosmic Quantum Energy Field (CQEF)

    So what does it ‘look’ like? To be a part of, or experience, this Cosmic Quantum Energy Field (CQEF)? To look upon this vast field of energy? Well first of all, this body is no good. Can’t see over there. Need… Read More ›

  • What is the nature of Being?

    Aristotle’s philosophy, his metaphysics at least, is underpinned by his notion of being (óntōs), and the study of that which constitutes said being, being qua being as it is typically referred to in the Western philosophical tradition. It is from… Read More ›

  • Immanuel Kant and the Age of Reason

    The Enlightenment no doubt represents one of the most transformative periods in the history of civilization.  While it was primarily an intellectual (really philosophical) movement, with a locus in 8th century Europe, it is rooted in intellectual developments that took… Read More ›

  • The Postmodern Condition: Is it Fatal?

    What we attempted to do with Theology Reconsidered, at least one of things we attempted to do, was to establish the intellectual framework, the rational grounds you might say, that underpins states of consciousness that broadly fall under the category… Read More ›

  • numbers and philosophy in antiquity (cont)

    While it’s tempting to look at the sequences of the bāguà, again the “eight trigrams” or “eight gua”, which as far as the tradition goes represent the earliest form of the Yĭ Jing from which the system of the 64 hexagrams was… Read More ›

  • Master Carpenter at work

    Unity of course, from which all existence emerges. Self created, out of the watery abyss of time itself. But the spirit of God created this world… Brahman, Yahweh, Allah, God…. He so many names. And as many of him as there… Read More ›

  • The Word and the Light

    But back to Genesis, what it’s telling us is that God and the Word are one. They are inseparable. Through this power that is vested in him, that is him, Heaven and Earth were created. Our universe was born through… Read More ›

  • Creation (Old School)

    The oldest wisdom of the Abrahamic lineage, the Jewish heritage you might say, lies in the Old Testament, and for better or worse this is my heritage – one I share with Jewish, Christian and Muslim brethren around the world… Read More ›

  • Superman

    There’s almost an echo back to those character defining events, a psychological structure forms out of those cooking chambers and leaves behind scars that become reference points for your state of being. What forces are at play and how are… Read More ›

  • Numerology with Pythagoras

    The tetractys of the Pythagoreans

    When looking for the origins of the theological study of mathematics within the Greek philosophical tradition we must of course start with Pythagoras (c. 570 – 490 BCE), whose strong connection to this field of study survives even to this… Read More ›

  • Magic Squares and Gematria: Mystical Codes

    Building on this astronomical system, from a numerology or arithmology perspective, in the Western occult and esoteric traditions (traditions which emerged and matured well after Christianity’s widespread adoption and canonization) each sphere is assigned a corresponding number dependent on the level of… Read More ›

  • On Ancient Numerology and Astronomy

    In their quest for the ultimate symbols to represent reality, an integral of their philosophical pursuits, the Greeks developed an esoteric tradition that although was not inconsistent with the pantheistic tradition within which it coexisted, was relatively independent from it…. Read More ›

  • The Valdezian Ennead

    What we add to this model, as a sort of stabilizing intellectual force on top of and somewhat orthogonal to the existing models presented above (Kant, Aristotle, Pirsig, Jung and others), a sort of re-alignment and shifting of intellectual ground… Read More ›

  • The Bridge (aka the Valdez)

    Somewhat reluctantly, it must be recognized that some sort of broad philosophical context must be established for the work at hand – Homo Mysticus and Theology Reconsidered taken as a tandem as it were, re-establishing the boundaries of Science and extending the… Read More ›

  • Eternal Return (Homo Mysticus excerpt)

    Outside of the teacher to student relationship we have going on here, or at least the intentions of such, we are also trying to move knowledge forward for the collective as well. Press the boundaries of acceptable, relatable and real… Read More ›
