Dimensions exist all around us. Not just in the animal and plant kingdom but even in the human kingdom – the world or war-torn Syria is an altogether different reality than Wall Street finance in NYC is it not? The… Read More ›

Nietzsche and the Übermensch

In Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Nietzsche – like many other great authors before (and after) him – creates a character through which he can “explore” ideas, through which he can communicate directly from mind you might say. Plato was the master at this… Read More ›

Homo Mysticus

But it’s homo mysticus too isn’t it? We are a thinking man, but perhaps at this stage of development a new species has emerged – a mystical Man, who knows his place on Earth but also knows his place in Heaven. This… Read More ›

Homo Machina

These psychological breaks, these fits of madness, or the experience of altered states during rites or initiations (usually mixed with hallucinogenic) speak to this underlying psychological architecture… We’re not looking at neuro-chemical brain structure here, we’re looking at what in… Read More ›

The Science of Being

There is a science which studies Being qua Being, and the properties inherent in it in virtue of its own nature. This science is not the same as any of the so-called particular sciences, for none of the others contemplates… 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 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)
