Pitcher beim Wurf

 

Folgende Anekdote stammt aus der Feder des amerikanischen theoretischen Physikers John Archibald Wheeler (1911-2008). Wheeler, der selbst ein Empiriker war, überdachte er die unterschiedlichen Standpunkte seiner beiden Kollegen. Die Einstellung des Realisten Albert Einstein wich von der Möglichkeit ab, die Niels Bohr einräumte. Der dänische Quantenphysiker glaubte, dass ein Kollaps der Wellenfunktion Partikeln, wie beispielsweise Elektronen, ihre ausgeprägte Wirklichkeit übermittelt.

 

Drei Schiedsrichter werden darüber interviewt, mit welcher Methode sie beim Baseball-Spiel die Bälle als Gewinn- oder Verlustpunkte werten. Jeder Schiedsrichter erging sich in technischen Details und erläuterte, wie er sich bestenfalls hinter den Catchern positioniert. Der Journalist forderte alle drei Experten, auf die Frage ''Wie entscheiden Sie wirklich? zu antworten.

 

Der erste Schiedsrichter, ein Empiriker,
rühmt sich:
"Ich werte Bälle so, wie ich sie sehe."Vergangenheit
Der zweite Schiedsrichter, ein Realist, behauptet:"Ich werte Bälle so, wie sie sind."Gegenwart
Der dritte Schiedsrichter, ein Potentialist, sagt:"Die Bälle existieren überhaupt nicht,
solange ich sie nicht bewerte."

Eine "andere" Perspektive – Gespräch eines Zwillingspaars

Zwillingsgespräch

 

           Ein ungeborenes Zwillingspärchen unterhält sich im Bauch der Mutter.           

 


La Charité, 1859
William-Adolphe Bouguereau, französischer Maler 1880
"Sag mal, glaubst du eigentlich an ein Leben nach der Geburt?",

fragt der eine Zwilling.

"Ja, auf jeden Fall! Hier drinnen wachsen wir und werden stark für das, was draußen kommen wird",

antwortete der andere Zwilling.

"Ich glaub, das ist Blödsinn!",

sagte der Erste.

"Es kann kein Leben nach der Geburt geben – wie sollte das denn bitteschön aussehen?"
"So ganz genau weiss ich das auch nicht. Aber es wird sicher viel heller sein als hier.
Und vielleicht werden wir herumlaufen und mit dem Mund essen?"
"So einen Unsinn habe ich ja noch nie gehört! Mit dem Mund essen, was für eine verrückte Idee.
Es gibt doch die Nabelschnur, die uns ernährt. Und wie willst du herumlaufen? Dafür ist die Nabelschnur viel zu kurz."
"Doch, es geht bestimmt. Es wird eben alles nur ein bisschen anders."
"Du spinnst! Es ist noch nie einer zurückgekommen nach der Geburt.
Mit der Geburt ist das Leben zu Ende. Punktum."
"Ich gebe ja zu, dass keiner weiß, wie das Leben nach der Geburt aussehen wird.
Aber ich weiß, dass wir dann unsere Mutter sehen werden, und sie wird für uns sorgen."%
"Mutter? Du glaubst doch wohl nicht an eine Mutter? Wo ist sie denn, bitte?"
"Na hier – überall um uns herum. Wir sind und leben in ihr und durch sie.
Ohne sie könnten wir gar nicht sein!"
"Quatsch! Von einer Mutter habe ich noch nie etwas bemerkt, also gibt es sie auch nicht."
"Doch, manchmal, wenn wir ganz still sind, kannst du sie singen hören.
Oder spüren, wenn sie unsere Welt streichelt."
Vorlage von:  ► Henry Nouwen (1932-1996) niederländischer römisch-katholischer Priester,
Theologe, Psychologe, geistlicher Schriftsteller

Paradox der Entschleunigung


Till Eulenspiegel, Brunnenfigur in Magdeburg

Till Eulenspiegel ging eines schönen Tages mit seinem Bündel an Habseligkeiten zu Fuß zur nächsten Stadt.
Auf einmal hörte er, wie sich schnell Hufgeräusche näherten und eine Kutsche neben ihm anhielt.
Der Kutscher hatte es sehr eilig und rief:

"Sag schnell – wie weit ist es bis zur nächsten Stadt?"

Till Eulenspiegel antwortete:

"Wenn Ihr langsam fahrt, dauert es wohl eine halbe Stunde. Fahrt Ihr schnell, so dauert es zwei Stunden, mein Herr."
"Du Narr",

schimpfte der Kutscher und trieb die Pferde zu einem schnellen Galopp an und die Kutsche entschwand Till Eulenspiegels Blick.

 

Till Eulenspiegel ging gemächlich seines Weges auf der Straße, die viele Schlaglöcher hatte. Nach etwa einer Stunde sah er nach einer Kurve eine Kutsche im Graben liegen. Die Vorderachse war gebrochen und es war just der Kutscher von vorhin, der sich nun fluchend daran machte, die Kutsche wieder zu reparieren.

 

Der Kutscher bedachte Till Eulenspiegel mit einem bösen und vorwurfsvollen Blick, worauf dieser nur sagte:

"Ich sagte es doch: Wenn Ihr langsam fahrt, eine halbe Stunde."

Quotes by D. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

  • Prefering chocolate you mustn't hate vanilla. Source unknown

 

  • Dualism is created by our positions. Source unknown

Hologram

  • In fact, this is a holographic universe. Each point of view reflects a position defined by the viewer's unique level of consciousness. If you are on this side of the hologram your perception will hardly agree with that of the observer on the other side. "He must be crazy!" is a common reaction to such wide discrepancy. And the world is a set of holograms in limitless dimensions, not, as is often said, of mirrors – which are fixed in time and place and offer only a single reflection. Auditory experience also is part of a holographic series of attractor fields of all the sounds that ever were. The physical world is tactile, too. It has texture, color, dimension and spatial relationships such as position and shape. Each of these is again part of an underlying sequence that, with all of the other qualities, goes back in to the "end of time" to the original source of its existence, which is now. Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, chapter 20 The Evolution of Consciousness, S. 239, Hay House, February 2002

 

  • Each person's energy body carries with it an historical track of patterns which persist over time and influence decisions, behavior, and the feelings of attraction or repulsion. This energy body, which is the locus of the sense of 'I', exists independently of the physical body, as anyone who has ever gone out of body will remember. This 'karmic body' is made up of collected tracks of positionalities. The Eye of the I. From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 232, 2001

 

  • [E]ach level has its basic props, and when these props are surrendered, the level no longer dominates. By removing the motherboards of each level, one witnesses that everything merely is just what it is, and judgmentalism is surrendered to God.
    Each level has its associated negative feelings, including guilt, shame, fear etc., so removing its fulcrum allows the whole stack to collapse. Each step along the way is self-rewarding and reinforces dedication to the process. With the removal of the positionality that results in a whole level of consciousness, the negative energy disappears and is replaced by the positive energies. As the process proceeds, there is therefore less and less resistance. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S ?, 2001

 

  • Without belief in its appearance as defined by perception, the world we thought was real disappears. When one chooses to be at one with the inner, ever-present potentiality of joy and peace, the world transforms into a humorous amusement park, and all the drama is seen to be just drama.
    The option for truth, peace, and joy is always available, although seemingly buried behind an ignorance and nonawareness that results from having chosen other options as a habit of thought. The inner truth reveals itself when all other options are refused by surrender to God. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 4, S. 80-81, 2001

The dualistic error of opposites

Learning to understand than to judge prematurely

  • It is not very efficient or rewarding to 'battle sin' and get into a struggle to use 'will power' to overcome defects. These are already positionalities and traps that bind the mind in the dualistic error of 'opposites'. The way out of conflict is not to try to eliminate the negative but instead to choose to adopt the positive. To view that one's mission in life is to understand rather than to judge automatically resolves moral dilemmas. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 103, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002

 

  • As positionality ceases, one becomes aware that it was the source of all prior miseries, fears, and unhappiness and that every positionality is inherently in error. All positions that were held can be forgiven. Because of programming and context, they sounded like a good idea at the time. All such ideas were based on the erroneous notion that, in some way they served to propagate the survival of a separate, independent ego/self identity. Actually, when it disappears, no loss is possible nor is gain necessary. It was illusion itself that was the actual cause of endless pain and suffering. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 7 The MindPositionality, S. 105-106, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002

 

  • In Reality, everything is automatically manifesting the inherent destiny of its essence; it doesn't need any external help to do this. With humility, one can relinquish the ego's self-appointed role as savior of the world and surrender it straight to God. The world that the ego pictures is a projection of its own illusions and arbitrary positionalities. No such world exists. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 7 The MindPositionality, S. 107, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002

Postionalities tendentially taken for granted

  • Some Basic Axiomatic Positionalities of the Ego
    They come to be considered axiomatic and beyond question. To even bring them up for consideration results in defenses by the ego.
    1. Phenomena are either good or bad, right or wrong, just or unjust, fair or unfair.
    2. The 'bad' deserve to be punished and the 'good' rewarded.
    3. Things happen by accident or else they are the fault of somebody else.
    4. The mind is capable of comprehending and recognizing truth from falsehood.
    5. The world causes and determines our experiences.
    6. Life is unfair because the innocent suffer while the wicked go unpunished.
    7. People can be different than they are.
    8. It is critical and necessary to be right.
    9. It is critical and necessary to win.
    10. Wrongs must be righted.
    11. Righteousness must prevail.
    12. Perceptions represent reality.

  • In reality nothing thoughts say about oneself or other people have any reality. All statements are fallacious and represent programming and positionality. I, Reality and Subjectivity, S. 25, 2003

 

  • The constant awareness of one's existence as "I" is the ever present expression of the innate divinity of the Self. […] The truth of this identity is obscured by the duality created by perception and disappears when all positionalities are relinquished. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 129, 2003

 

  • To the spiritual aspirant, desire and attachments are deterrants to progress, and as they arise, what they symbolize can be surrendered to God. At the same time, the positionalities that they signify can be identified and surrendered because they become progressive burdens. Frequently, at a certain phase of spiritual evolution, it is common for aspirants to walk away from all possessions. Later on, possessions are no longer seen as a hinderance or an asset because the sense of ownership disappears and illusions are no longer projected onto them. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 190, 2003

Guilt and the duality of opposites

 

  • Righteous anger and indignation are moralistic inflations of positionalities and expectations of others. [Paraphrased.] I, Reality and Subjectivity, chapter 12, S. 197, 2003

"Love brings up its opposite."

  • The foremost goal of the pathway of the heart is to reach that level of consciousness called Unconditional Love. The energy of inspiration and devotion facilitate surrender of positionalities and results in reliance upon God's grace. Although this process sounds conceptually simple, as everyone has found by experience, it is often more difficult than one had expected. The sincere devotee discovers that striving for unconditional love has the unpleasant faculty of bringing up the opposite of one's dedicated goal. This is represented in the terse spiritual saying that "Love brings up its opposite." I. Reality and Subjectivity, chapter 19, S. 325, 2003

Key understanding

  • Resistance subsides when there is a clear understanding that what is being surrendered is not of intrinsic value but is instead imagined to be of value solely because of the juice or payoff the ego extracts from that position. The principle of willingness needs only to be applied to the ego's payoff and not to the object or condition desired. […] [E]go positionality has a price, which is where the willingness should be addressed. Each positionality is based on the presumption that its fulftllment will bring happiness. Thus, nothing is really valued aside from the illusion that it will bring that about.
    This reinforces the importance of keeping in mind Socrates' dictum that all men choose only what they perceive to be the good. It is just that they do not know what is the 'real' good. It becomes evident by consciousness research that happiness is associated only with a single factor – a level of consciousness. Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, chapter 6 "The 'Experiencer'", S. 118-119, 2007

Various reactions to events

  • It is not the events of life but how we hold them in mind that creates our reaction. Events in and of themselves have no power to affect how we feel, one way or another. What does affect us is our position and judgment about them, and how we decide to be with them. Our attitude, our point of view, the context, and the overall meaning meaning give the event the emotional power over us give the event the emotional power over us. We can see that we are the creator of the meaning and impact it has on us. Healing and Recovery, chapter 4 "Health", S. 129, 2009

 

 

 

 

 

  • [T]he ego habitually takes a positionality. In the naïve person, it is usually unspoken or unconscious. Positionality then automatically creates a duality of seeming opposites. At this point, the mind is creating the world of perception – which is like a lens that distorts, enlarges, or diminishes meaning and significance. This perception is the product of belief systems and presumptions and thus becomes a distracting filter. Therefore, essence cannot be perceived from a dualistic positionality.
    Input is run through the software programs that simultaneously edit the incoming programs.
    Reality is consequently obscured and hidden behind a perceptual screen; therefore, the self lives in a perceived, edited translation of information. This processing creates an extremely small time delay (estimated at 1/10,000th of a second). This editing function of perception simultaneously interprets [Wiki.[Bedeutung|meaning]] in which the intellect and especially the memory play significant roles. Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self. Contemplations from the Teachings of David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., edited by Scott Jeffrey, chapter 11 Enlightenment, S. 188-189, last quote, Hay House, August 2011

 

  • Question: What does it mean to "pray for the highest good"?
    Answer: You’re asking truth for the sake of truth itself, without having any position about it. In other words, I don’t want it for my personal benefit, or for somebody else’s personal benefit. Instead of a selfish intention, praying for the highest good means you’re depersonalizing it and raising it to a higher level of intention. That prayer helps all of mankind because you are part of mankind; you are seeing yourself collectively.

Worldly amusements gratify the ego.

  
  • You make an inner decision to reject that which is transient in the world. It takes self-discipline and the willingness to forego the attraction of these amusements which are ego gratifications of positionalities. Q&A Audio interview with Dr. David R. Hawkins, MP3, presented by US American ACIM web radio station Miracles Center, Sedona, Arizona, host Ellen Sutherland, 1 hour duration (Pal Talk), 10. November 2005

 

  • Renunciation means, eventually, an inner renunciation. [It is] the willingness to let go of insisting a thing isn't logical or can't be true and all these kinds of positionalities. The willingness, then, to let go of everything that stands in the way of love. As we do that the things that keep coming up that block us from love, then, are feelings and these feelings are just based on certain perceptions, ways of seeing things, the way of interpreting them – conditionalities that we have been brain-washed into […] Ask 'Am I willing to surrender that to God?' ' Would I rather be right or would I rather realize the Presence of God?' Sedona Seminar Devotion: The Way to God Through the Heart, DVD 1 of 3, minute ~47:00, 17. September 2002

 

  • Something will come out of some archetype something that is buried within consciousness. […] You see what it is. That if I was really a warrior of truth I would be defending their right to forgiveness instead of making them wrong. You see a different kind of an understanding will come up and all of a sudden the energy disappears. Sedona Seminar Vision, CD 2 of 4, track 10-11, minute 54:19-56:28, 25. February 2005

Points of view – umpires and physicists


Batter, catcher and umpire

 

Following anecdote was designed by the US American theoretical physicist John Archibald Wheeler (1911-2008). Empirist himself, he described the perspectives of his colleagues: the realist Albert Einstein and the potentialist Niels Bohr who believed the collapse of the wave function gives particles like electrons their distinct reality.

 

Three baseball umpires are being interviewed about how they decide whether to call a pitch a ball or a strike. Each umpire talked about his positioning behind the catchers and other technical details. The interviewer challenged all three of them, "How do you really decide?".

 

The first umpire, the empiricist, said:"What it really comes down to is,
I calls 'em like I see 'em."
Past
The second umpire, the realist, stated:"My eyesight is just a little better, but
I calls 'em the way they are."
Present
The third umpire, the potentialist, smiled and said:"They ain't nothin' until I calls 'em."Future
