Anstieg des Bewusstseinsniveaus der Menschheit:

Die moderne weltweit vernetzte elektronische Kommunikation trägt entscheidend zum kontinuierlichen Anstieg des Weltbewusstseins. Sowohl das Internet als auch das Internet schwingen auf dem Bewusstseinswert 205. [Stand Ende 2010)

  • Der Bewusstseinswert der Menschheit [BW 205] steigt gegenwärtig an. Das liegt auch am Internet [BW 205] und die hocheffektiven Kommunikationsmittel. Wir verfügen über außerordentliche Mittel der Wissensvermittlung. […] Nun drücken wir auf einen Knopf und Millionen von Menschen weltweit wissen unmittelbar darüber Bescheid.
    In der heutigen Welt ist es schwer, dumm zu sein. Gewiss, man muss sich heftig darum bemühen. […] Das Leben heutzutage ist wunderbar. Wenn man etwas nicht weiß, befragt man einfach den Computer, der die Information mitteilt. Sehr eindrucksvoll. Audiovortrag von Dr. David R. Hawkins, Celebrate Your Life Konferenz, organisiert von Mishka Productions, Phoenix, Arizona, 6. November 2010 – Map of Consciousness (2010), YouTube Film, Minute 1:13:27, 1:17:30 Dauer, eingestellt 23. Oktober 2011

 

  • Denn nicht das viele Wissen sättigt und befriedigt die Seele, sondern das Innerlich-die-Dinge-Verspüren-und-Schmecken. Ignatius von Loyola (1491-1556) spanischer Ritter, Einsiedler, Theologe, kryptojüdischer Mitbegründer, erster Superior des Jesuitenordens, Quelle unbekannt

 

 

  • Auf der Suche nach immer mehr Wissen darf nie die Liebe verschwinden. Sie hat eine ungeheure Kraft, die physikalisch nicht zu messen ist. Wissen allein kann weder Krisen noch Kriege verhindern – das schafft nur die Liebe. Markolf Niemz (*1964) deutscher Biophysiker, Mut tut gut!, S. 10, letzter Absatz, Datum unbekannt

 

  • Viel Wissen bedeutet noch nicht Verstand. Heraklit (535-475 v. Chr.) vorsokratischer altgriechischer Philosoph
  • Wo ist die Weisheit, die wir im Wissen verloren haben?
    Wo ist das Wissen, das wir in der Information verloren haben?"
    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) US-amerikanisch-britischer Literaturkritiker, Vertreter der literarischen Moderne, Lyriker, Dramatiker, Bühnenschriftsteller, Literaturnobelpreisträger, 1948, "Choruses from The Rock", 1. Strophe, Auszug aus T.S. Eliot Collected Poems, 1909-1962, 1934

Humor

  • Man könnte meinen, nichts zu wissen, ist sehr angenehm. Ich bin meine Welt, lehrt uns der Philosoph Ludwig Wittgenstein. Mit anderen Worten: Was ich weiß, ist meine Welt. Je weniger ich weiß, umso dominanter bin ich in dieser Welt. Und umgekehrt: Je mehr ich weiß, umso mehr umgibt mich – und umso kleiner werde ich. Nichtwissen kann zu einer gewissen trügerischen Größe verhelfen. Interview mit Mathias Richling (*1953) deutscher Kabarettist, Parodist, Autor, Schauspieler, Ob ich noch ganz dicht bin? Ich bitte Sie!, präsentiert von dem deutschen Nachrichtenmagazin Der Spiegel, 27. Mai 2011

General quotes

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. Matthew 10, 16 (NT)

 

Conclusion

 

Appeals

  • We have to be able to recognize that the attainment of knowledge is the highest labor of mankind. And that the attainment of knowledge is the basis of all philanthropy, the basis of all unselfishness, the basis of all cooperation, and the strengthening of all the constructive emotions of the human being.
    Therefore to do this, it must be a discipline. And all ancient people set aside certain disciplines for those who wanted to know the truth more than anything else. These they called the mystery schools. The greatest of all wisdom is the love of truth, the love of reality.
    We’ve had years of years of corrupted wisdom. We’ve head years of years of pseudo knowledge and we’re now very much in need of the real thing. Manly Palmer Hall (1901-1990) Canadian-born mystic, occultist, 33rd degree Freemason, author, What the Ancient Wisdom Expects of Its Disciples. A Study Concerning the Mystery Schools, Philosophical Res Soc, California, July 1996

 

Recommendation

  • It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so. Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835-1910) US American humorist, Freemason, author, aphorism

 

Insights

  • The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge. In this sense I believe that the priest must become a teacher if he wishes to do justice to his lofty educational mission. Albert Einstein, Ph.D. (1879-1955) German-born US American theoretical physicist, developer of the theory of general relativity, Nobel laureate in physics, 1921, Ideas And Opinions, S. 41-49, Random House, 1954, article Science and Religion, first section taken from an address at Princeton Theological Seminary, 19. May 1939

 

  • Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance. Confucius (551-479 BC) Chinese sage, social philosopher, sponsor of Confucianism, the Chinese state religion, Analects of Confucius [Lunyu] ["Selected Sayings"] (475 BC-220 AD)

 

  • Knowledge has three degrees – opinion, science, illumination.
    • The means or instrument of the first is sense;
    • of the second, dialectic;
    • of the third, intuition.
Plotinus (205-270) Greek philosopher

 

  • We know things because they are; things are because God knows them. Plato (427-347 BC) Ancient Greek pre-Christian philosopher, founder of the occidental philosophy, cf Charles Harvey

Polarized opposites of learning: knowledge and wisdom

  • Knowledge is our asset to understand things as it is. […] 
    All knowledge is from the outside [out of books, listening, looking].
    Knowledge is essentially anchored in materialism. […]
    Knowledge for the most part is passing.
    Knowledge is valuable only to the degree that it can be ensouled, that it can be enriched to become meaningful, to stand for something that will help to enhance the general state of mankind.
"The Wisdom Series" lecture by Manly Palmer Hall (1901-1990) Canadian-born mystic, occultist, 33rd degree Freemason, author, From Knowledge to Wisdom, YouTube film, minute 7:47 and minute 20:07, 58:41 minutes duration, posted 26. April 2013

 

  • Common sense is just natural honesty. It is an intuitive grasp of realities and it is probably the most powerful educating force that there is and yet we don’t dare to trust it because common sense may teach us to go in the opposite direction from which we are heading. "The Wisdom Series" lecture by Manly Palmer Hall (1901-1990) Canadian-born mystic, occultist, 33rd degree Freemason, author, From Knowledge to Wisdom, YouTube film, minute ... , 58:41 minutes duration, posted 26.

  • Instinct is something which transcends knowledge. We have undoubtedly certain finer fibers that enable us to perceive truths when logical deduction or any other willful effort of the brain is futile. Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) Serbian US American physicist, mechanical and electrical engineer, inventor, cited in: article My Inventions, presented by US American magazine [[wpe:Electrical Experimenter'', 1919

 

  • The desire of power in excess caused the angels to fall; the desire of knowledge in excess caused man to fall. Francis Bacon (1561-1626) English philosopher, statesman, scientist, lawyer, jurist, author, pioneer of the scientific method

 

  • Knowledge is power. Francis Bacon (1561-1626) English philosopher, statesman, scientist, lawyer, jurist, author, pioneer of the scientific method, source unknown

 

 

  • Thoughts [concepts] without content are empty, intuitions without concepts are blind. The understanding can intuit nothing, the senses can think nothing. Only through their unison can knowledge arise. Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) German philosopher at the end of the 18th century Enlightenment, Critique of Pure Reason ['Kritik der reinen Vernunft'], A 51, B 75, 1st edition 1781, 2nd edition 1787

 

  • Not ignorance, but ignorance of ignorance, is the death of knowledge. Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947) English mathematician, philosopher, pioneering integralist, metaphysical educator, author

 

  • In the life of man,
    • his time is but a moment,
    • his being an incessant flux,
    • his senses a dim rushlight,
    • his body a prey of worms,
    • his soul an unquiet eddy,
    • his fortune dark,
    • and his fame doubtful.
In short,
  • all that is of the body is as coursing waters,
  • all that is of the soul as dreams and vapours;
  • life a warfare, a brief sojourning in an alien land;
  • and after repute, oblivion.
Where, then, can man find the power to guide and guard his steps? In one thing and one alone: the love of knowledge. Marcus Aurelius (121-180 A.D.) Roman Emperor (161-180 AD), last of the "Five Good Emperors", important Stoic philosopher, author, Meditations, Epilogue, S. 33, Penguin Classics, 31. October 2006

 

  • The only way in which a human being can make some approach to knowing the whole of a subject, is by hearing what can be said about it by persons of every variety of opinion, and studying all modes in which it can be looked at by every character of mind. John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) English philosopher, economist, On Liberty, 1859

 

  • Knowledge is about information, wisdom is about transformation. Tal Ben-Shahar, Ph.D., US American organizational behaviorist, writer, lecturer on Positive Psychology, Harvard University, United States, IDC, Herzliya, Israel, 3rd annual Positive Psychology course, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 2008, Positive Psychology, lecture 1, YouKu film, 77:03 minutes duration, posted October 200

 

  • Knowing something is probably an obsolete idea. You don't actually need to know anything, you can find out at the point when you need to know it. It's the teacher's job to point young minds towards the right kind of question. A teacher doesn't need to give any answers, because answers are everywhere. And we know now from years of measurements that learners who find the answers for themselves retain it better than if they're told the answer. Sugata Mitra (*1952) Indian polymath, professor of educational technology, School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences, Newcastle University, England, cited in: educational documentary The Future of Learning, presented by Ericsson – Networked Society, YouTube film, minute 3:50, 20:17 minutes duration, posted 19.

Tacit knowledge [vs. explicit knowledge] emerges in trust-based encounters with people.

  • Tacit knowledge is the most important knowledge in a rapidly changing world. That tacit knowledge is embedded in people. If you are not having unexpected encounters with people you are not going to have unexpected encounters with this tacit knowledge. That's the power of the social networks as they start to focus on connecting people. […] Because it's so hard hard to express tacit knowledge I'm typically going to hold back […] unless there is some kind of trust-based relationship there. John Hagel III, US American consultant, co-chairman of the Deloitte Center for the Edge, speaker and author on the intersection of business strategy and information technology, John Hagel – Real Time Web, part 2 of 3, presented by O'Reilly radar, host Joshua-Michéle Ross, minute 4:26 5:18 minutes duration, 24. October 2009

Knowledge as personal property and status gain

  • We tend to treat our knowledge as personal property to be protected and defended. It is an ornament that allows us to rise in the pecking order. […] [W]e take what we know a little too seriously. Nassim Nicholas Taleb (*1960) Lebanese US American philosopher, essayist, practitioner of mathematical finance, The Black Swan. The Impact of the Highly Improbable, Random House, 1st edition 17. April 2007

 

  • In Phase I [illusion] of the human experience: Knowledge is power.
    In Phase II [truth] of the human experience: Knowledge has no power. However, it is supportive.
    Robert Scheinfeld, US American bestselling author of New York Times

 

  • Knowledge is gained by learning; trust by doubt; skill by practice; and love by love. Thomas S. Szasz (*1920) Hungarian US-American professor emeritus of psychiatry, State University of New York Health Science Center, Syracuse, New York, social critic of the moral and scientific foundations of psychiatry and scientism

 

  • Whenever masses of people, especially educated people, know something – and when what they know is something they greatly fear because they believe it affects virtually everything they do or want to do – then most likely we stand in the presence of a vast falsehood. Thomas S. Szasz (*1920) Hungarian US-American professor emeritus of psychiatry, State University of New York Health Science Center, Syracuse, New York, social critic of the moral and scientific foundations of psychiatry and scientism

 

 

  • Simkin and Roychowdhury conclude, using some elegant math, that only about 20 percent of scientists who cite an article have actually read that paper. This means that four out of five scientists never take the time to track down a publication they intend to use to buttress their arguments. By examining these mutations we can trace these errors backward in time, and understand how knowledge truly spread from scientist to scientist, instead of how it appeared to spread. Samuel Arbesman, US American complexity scientist, The Half-Life of Facts. Why Everything We Know Has an Expiration Date, Penguin Publishing Group, Current, reprint edition 27. August 2013

 

  • There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know.
    There are known unknowns; that is to say, there are things that we now know we don't know.
    But there are also unknown unknowns – there are things we do not know we don’t know.
    Donald Rumsfeld (*1932) US American politician, businessman, 13th secretary of defense (1975-1977), 21st secretary of defense (2001-2006), Mr. Monsanto, convicted war criminal, press briefing, 12. February 2002

Literary quotes – Poems

  • Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
    Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) US American British literary critic, poet, playwright, Nobel laureate in literature, 1948, pageant play The Rock, first performed in London, 28. May 1934
    "Choruses from The Rock", excerpted from T.S. Eliot Collected Poems, 1909-1962

Quotes by David R. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

(↓)

Truth is dependent on given parameters.

  • To be operational, truth must not simply be "true" but knowable; yet each level of truth is unknowable to the levels below it and has no validity beyond its own territory. Thus we can conclude that all levels of truth as we know it – within the dimension of ordinary human function – are examples of dependent truth, whose veracity is totally contingent on a given set of parameters. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, chapter 23 The Search for Truth, S. 283, Hay House, Februar 2002

 

 

  • A pathway that excludes awareness of karma must then rely heavily on faith or there would be no other spiritually integrous way of explaining the events of human life. The downside is that if faith or belief is lost, the disillusioned spirit is then vulnerable to either sinking into despair or latching onto a substitute for God. In the Western world, this is a very common occurrence and accounts for the fact that the intellect, in its expression as reason/logic/science, is now the main hope for the betterment of life. When this occurs, the mind and reason become deified and treated as though they were a religion. People become dedicated with great fervor to social and political causes and intellectual positionalities that are then elevated to become the new supposed saviors of mankind. That proclivity is characteristic of the consciousness levels of the 400s, which are rarely transcended. We see that ninety-six percent of the world’s population never transcends consciousness level 499. Intellect, however, need not totally displace spirituality; thus, many people in the 400s, although they place great faith in the intellect, are simultaneously involved in religious or spiritual pursuits. The wise know that the intellect can take one only so far, and beyond that, faith and belief must substitute for knowledge. Dr. David R. Hawkins, I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 253-254, 2003

 

 

 

  • Question: Spiritual inquiry starts with acquired information derived from study etc. This then results in the obstacle of the mind's conclusion that "I know". How can valid information be held so as not to create the obstacle of presumption?
    Answer: To the seeker of the Truth of the inner pathway of non-duality, all learning is held as tentative until the innate truth reveals itself and is validated experientially. This process is potentiated by recontextualization. Classically, the recommended position from which to hold information is clarified by the phrase "So I have heard", which implies the holding back of transferring of the information into a belief system. That information has become an integrated 'knowingness' is indicated by a transformational change of perception consequent to full understanding. This is often the result of reflection and contemplation. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 67-68, 2007

 

 

  • Humility is of greater value than all factual accumulation. Unless one has completely and totally experienced the presence of God in its stunning, absolute Allness, it is safe to assume that one really knows nothing and that all accumulated so-called knowledge is really only tentative. Anything within that claims "I know" proves that it is false by that very statement, or else it would not make such a claim. Dr. David R. Hawkins, edited by Scott Jeffrey, chapter 2 'Nature of "Mind"', S. 40, quote 1, Hay House, August 2011
