Emergenz – Auftauchen – Erscheinung versus Kausalitätsdenken


Marter der zehntausend Christen, 1507
Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) deutscher Maler

Ursachen sind im Bewusstsein vorhanden. In der linearen Welt gibt es keine Ursachen, nur zeitlich abfolgende Wirkungen. Die beschränkte menschliche Wahrnehmung überträgt weltlichen Ereignissen magische Kräfte, genannt Kausalität. Der linear denkende Mensch betrachtet vorausgesetzte erforderliche Bedingungen und zeitliche Abfolgen (Effekte) irrtümlicherweise als Ursachen.
Die irrtümliche Glaubensüberzeugung hinsichtlich der substanziellen Ursachen und Verursacher in der irdischen Realität schädigt langfristig gesehen das Ganze.

 

Das Konzept der 'Ursache' ist Teil des überholten linearen Newtonschen Denkmodells. An die Stelle des Kausalitätsdenkens sind nichtlineare Dynamiken, ausgedrückt als Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie, Vermischungstheorie, Emergenz- und Komplexitätstheorie getreten.

 

Das Ursache-Wirkungs-Denken ist ein intellektuelles Konstrukt innerhalb des dualistischen Paradigmas. Es impliziert die Opfer-Täter-Mentalität, die das Feindbilddenken bedingt und beinhaltet.

Debatte um die spontane Lebensentstehung (1860-1880)

Auf seinem Sterbebett in Villeneuve-l’Étang bei Paris machte der französische Begründer der Mikrobiologie Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) im September 1895 das reuevolle Bekenntnis:

[Claude] Bernard 1 hat Recht. Der Keim ist nichts, doch der Nährboden alles.

 

Wie kam Pasteur zu dieser späten Einsicht?
Wider seine eigenen wiederholten Forschungsergebnisse, welche die spontane Lebensentstehung unter sterilen mikrobiologischen Laborbedingungen bestätigten, hatte Pasteur zeitlebens die sozialdarwinistische reduktionistische Auslegung der Evolutionstheorie Darwins führend vertreten.
Zwischen 1860-1880 ging die wissenschaftliche Debatte darum, ob 'Selbstentstehung' [spontane Lebensemergenz] möglich sei oder nicht.
Pasteur hatte Bernards Feldthese des Nährbodens seinerzeit mit Erfolg unterdrückt.2

 

Die kontextuelle Frage ist erst mit dem Aufkommen der Emergenz- und Komplexitätstheorie etwa seit den 60iger Jahren wieder Gegenstand der wissenschaftlichen Diskussion geworden.

Zitate allgemein

  • Weil es ein Gesetz wie das der Schwerkraft gibt, kann und wird sich ein Universum selber aus dem Nichts erschaffen. Spontane Schöpfung ist der Grund, warum es statt dem Nichts doch etwas gibt, warum das Universum existiert, warum wir existieren. Stephen W. Hawking (*1942) britischer Genius, Astrophysiker, Mathematiker, University Cambridge, Der große Entwurf. Eine neue Erklärung des Universums, Rowohlt, 7. September 2010

  • Frage: Ereignet sich die Willensfreiheit […] im Reich der Formen oder in einem anderen?
    Antwort: Die Intention ließ etwas geschehen. Die Handlung ist lediglich die Erscheinung [Emergenz] der sich entfaltenden Schöpfung. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Dialogue, Questions, and Answers, 3 DVD-Set, Dezember 2003

 

  • Alles geschieht spontan aus sich selbst heraus, als eine Folge des Potentials, das als Wirklichkeit auftaucht. Demnach sieht man keine Veränderung, sondern Emergenz]]. [...] Phänomene kommen und gehen, während sich Potentiale verwirklichen, [...]  sofern die örtlichen Gegebenheiten günstig sind. [...] Mittels Intention können wir beeinflussen, dass Potentiale als Wirklichkeit auftauchen. Die bloße Absicht, [...] sich spirituell weiterzuentwickeln ist bereits sehr machtvoll.

Insights

  • We don't need to convince large numbers of people to change; instead, we need to connect with kindred spirits. This is why networks are so important. But networks aren't the whole story. They need to evolve into intentional working relationships where new knowledge, practices, courage, and commitment can develop, such as happens in Communities of Practice. From these relationships, emergence becomes possible. Emergence is the process by which all large-scale change happens on this planet. Separate, local efforts connect and strengthen their interactions and interdependencies. What emerges as these become stronger is a system of influence, a powerful cultural shift that then greatly influences behaviors and defines accepted practices. Article by Margaret J. Wheatley, Ed.D. margaretwheatley.com (*1941) US American associate professor of management, researcher on organizational behavior, leadership consultant, co-founder and president emerita of the global charitable foundation The Berkana Institute, speaker, author, Deborah Frieze, Using Emergence To Take Social Innovations To Scale, 2006
  • What are the electrons drawing off in order to be able to keep on running? This question was originally asked by Hal Puthoff in the 70ties.
    The answer is what many people call zero-point energy, or the quantum field, or the quantum vacuum, or virtual particle flux, dark energy which is not a pleasant name for it. These are all the different names that the mainstream has come out with. [...]
    If you want to have your Unified field theory of physics [...] and reconcile the macro with the micro, the quantum physics with the Newtonian physics [...] and to rectify it with the mystery of how can we actually be asking the question? Which is consciousness. [...]
    Consciousness must somehow be part of the field. [...]
    Consciousness is not simply locked within the human body and brain, but is interconnected [...] interacting with matter and energy. [...] The energy itself is conscious which is now becoming a scientifically proven fact.

Meanings of MYTH:

Original meaning: "Emergent truth" ❄ Secondary meaning: "Falsehood"

  • Words have a range of meanings. […] The word 'myth' nowadays means false. […] One of the true meanings of the word 'myth' is emergent truth. The word that means truth has now come to mean false. Words can change that much. But words have a way of making comeback. […] At the end of an era fact and myth approach each other.

  • Emergence violates so many of our Western assumptions of how change happens that it often takes quite a while to understand it. In nature, change never happens as a result of top-down, preconceived strategic plans, or from the mandate of any single individual or boss. Change begins as local actions spring up simultaneously in many different areas. If these changes remain disconnected, nothing happens beyond each locale. However, when they become connected, local actions can emerge as a powerful system with influence at a more global or comprehensive level. (Global here means a larger scale, not necessarily the entire planet.)
    These powerful emergent phenomena appear suddenly and surprisingly. Think about
    • how the Berlin Wall suddenly came down,
    • how the Soviet Union ended,
    • how corporate power quickly came to dominate globally.
In each case, there were many local actions and decisions, most of which were invisible and unknown to each other, and none of which was powerful enough by itself to create change. But when these local changes coalesced, new power emerged. What could not be accomplished by diplomacy, politics, protests, or strategy suddenly happened. And when each materialized, most of us were surprised. Emergent phenomena always have these characteristics:
  • They exert much more power than the sum of their parts;
  • they always possess new capacities different from the local actions that engendered them;
  • they always surprise us by their appearance.

  • Before hatching, when a caterpillar is still developing inside its egg, it grows an imaginal disc for each of the adult body parts it will need as a mature butterfly or moth – discs for its eyes, for its wings, its legs and so on. In some species, these imaginal discs remain dormant throughout the caterpillar's life; in other species, the discs begin to take the shape of adult body parts even before the caterpillar forms a chrysalis or cocoon. Some caterpillars walk around with tiny rudimentary wings tucked inside their bodies, though you would never know it by looking at them.

Quotes by David R. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

 

  • It is not possible for anything to cause anything else. Everything is manifesting its infinite potentiality by the Grace of Creation which is continuous. Dr. David R. Hawkins, source unknown

 

  • Even the phenomenon of "unfoldment" itself reflects a limited point of view: there is no enfolded and unfolded universe, only a becoming awareness. Our perception of events happening in time is analogous to a traveler watching the landscape unfold before him. But to say that the landscape unfolds before the traveler is merely a figure of speech – nothing is actually unfolding; nothing is actually becoming manifest. There's only the progression of awareness. – The notion that there's a "knower" and a "known" is in itself dualistic, in that it implies a separation between subject and object (which, again, can only be inferred by the artificial adoption of a point of observation). The Maker of all things in heaven and on Earth, of all things visible and invisible, stands beyond both, and is one with both. Existence, is, therefore, merely a statement that awareness is aware of its awareness and of its expression as consciousness. Dr. David R. Hawkins (1927-2012), Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, S. 232, Hay House, Februar 2002

 

  • In reality, everything occurs of its own, with no exterior cause. Every thing and every event is a manifestation of the totality of All That Is, just as it is at any given moment. Once seen in its totality, everything is perfect at all times and nothing needs an external cause to change it in any way. From the viewpoint of the ego’s positionality and limited scope, the world seems to need endless fixing and correction. This illusion collapses as a vanity. Dr. David R. Hawkins (1927-2012), The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. ?, 2001

  • There is the dawning awareness that all which seems to occur really represents what is being held in what was previously considered as 'within'. Thus proclivity to project is undone [...]. David R. Hawkins (1927-2012), I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 22, 2003

 

  • Like a radio that converts unseen energy waves into intelligible sound, the brain is a receiver instrument of the energies of thought forms. Thus the attractor fields of the nonlinear domain of consciousness influence many 'minds' and brains simultaneously. Like an unseen radio transmitter, the attractor field radiates a field which is accessible to those instruments with which it has concordance. (Note that the mechanism is concordance and not causality.)
    A calibrated level of consciousness then exists as an independent field that contains concordant thought forms attuned to the 'frequency' of that attractor field. The field therefore sustains, supports and gives a 'home' to similar thought forms. If an individual mind attunes to that level of consciousness, the field then tends to potentiate the emergence of associated thoughts. This may result in the phenomenon of entrainment as the associated emotions increase the energy of alignment and commitment to the field and its personification as 'me'.
    Thus, we see great masses of people emoting and behaving in concert as though hypnotized. Dr. David R. Hawkins (1927-2012), I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 215, 2003

 

 

 

  • The progression of the evolution of consciousness is accelerated by the combination of intention plus attention. In worldly terms, the process is explicable as the Heisenberg principle, whereby the potentiality is activated to actuality by the introduction of consciousness and intention. This explanation applies to the mechanics of the phenomenon and is termed the ‘collapse of the wave function,’ the consequence of which then appears as emergence. Dr. David R. Hawkins (1927-2012), Transcending the Levels of Consciousness, Section V, Spiritual Transformation, S. 309, 2006

 

  • When phenomena appear that are beyond the expectations of logic or reason, they tend to become described as ‘mystical, ineffable, or miraculous’ to denote the consequence of intention and the response of the contextual field that results in emergence. Therefore, to ‘expect a miracle,’ or ‘pray for the highest good’ accelerates the resolution of a perceived problem. This is facilitated by surrendering judgmentalism or the desire to control outcomes. Thus, one is ‘responsible for the effort and not the results’ (a dictum of twelve-step spiritual groups). Dr. David R. Hawkins (1927-2012), Transcending the Levels of Consciousness, Section V, Spiritual Transformation, S. 310, 2006

 

 

  • Miraculous phenomena are the spontaneous, nonvolitional emergence of a potentiality's emerging as an actuality as a consequence of karmic propensities and local conditions, such as the level of the conntextual field set by the power of the prevailing level of consciousness. Dr. David R. Hawkins (1927-2012), Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 98, 2007

  • Evolutionary emergence of potential occurs as transitions that are rewarding and confirmatory overall. However, there are also transitory periods that are discomforting, and they are also to be expected. There may be periods of feeling estranged, depersonalized, or 'not like myself.' There may also be times of confusion or feeling 'spacey' or disorganized. These are due to the adjustments resulting from shifts of context and their experiential familiarity and customary sense of subjectivity. The sense of 'realness' or self-identity progressively expands and alters prior belief systems of 'who I am,' as they transform into 'what I am'. Therefore, there may be progressive changes in values, goals, and prioritization of time and effort. These transitional periods are temporary, and ease of transition is aided by prayer, spiritual practices, and especially, a contemplative lifestyle. Dr. David R. Hawkins (1927-2012), Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 241, 2007

 

  • A fast track to this effortless state is provided by the simple technique of focused relinquishment of resisting the perception/experiencing of the passage or duration of time. This is a surprisingly simple yet very powerful technique, and the reward is a sudden relief from the constant unconscious pressure of 'time', which subtly contextualizes and colors the experiencing of worldly life. Breaking the dominance of the illusion of time is very doable. It is then discovered that time is a projection from consciousness and only a belief system out which the ego 'time tracks' the witnessing of the emergence of phenomena. With release from dominance, there is a great sense of freedom and inner joy. Dr. David R. Hawkins (1927-2012), Reality, Spirituality, and Modern Man, chapter 19 Practicum, S. 355-356, 2008

 

  • In essence, Genesis is truthful. […] What it is really saying is out of the unmanifest emerged the manifest as light, which is the energy of divinity, which when it implodes upon matter takes the form of life. All that is manifest arises out of that which is unmanifest. Therefore it calibrates true. Reality has no beginning or end, beyond time and dimension. Dr. David R. Hawkins, CD series The Highest Level of Enlightenment, seminar snippets, CD 4 of 6, track 10, Nightingale-Conant, 2005

 

  • Everything happens spontaneously of its own as a consequence of potentiality emerging as actuality. So you don't see change. What you see ist emergence. [...] Phenomena come and go as potentiality becomes actuality [...] when local conditions are favorable. [...] With intention we can influence potentiality manifesting as actuality. The mere intention to progress in one’s level of consciousness, to become more and more spiritually evolved is already very powerful. [...] In respect to the power of intention, what about the consciousness level of the observer? Could be that some people‘s consciousness level is not sufficiently strong to very seriously effect the outcome. However other people’s consciousness level is very powerful and they could profoundly effect outcomes. Audio interview with Dr. David R. Hawkins, MP3, presented by Miracles Center, Sedona, Arizon, host Ellen Sutherland, 10. November 2005

 

  • [B]y one’s inner commitment and alignment, then, one brings about, because what you hold in mind tends to manifest. So you hold in mind the state of consciousness to which you aspire, to which you wish to realize within yourself. It’s already present, it’s just that you haven’t realized it. So what you’re asking for is the blocks to that awareness be removed, because the infinite state is not an acquisition. It’s what prevails when that which blocks its awareness is removed. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Phoenix presentation Title unknown, Unity Church, January 2005

Emergence of the white animals

At their peak, the American bison, or buffalo, numbered about 80 million, and the chances of a white, nonalbino, buffalo being born were about one in 10 million. Today, there are only about 130,000 buffalo. Still, on August 20, 1994 a white buffalo calf was born on a farm in Janesville, Wisconsin. Native American Lebend White Buffalo Calf Woman, presented by crystalinks.com, undated
Reference: White Buffalo Mythology |Egyptian Book of the Dead, chapter 84, ~1550 BCE~50 BCE

 

The Native American prophecy on the white buffalo states:

When the white buffalo is born, the day of the Creator is at hand.

 

Since 1994 a host of other white animals has appeared. Noteworthy is that these white animals are not albinos.
