God Between the Numbers, Part 2: Isness and Suchness

All numbers have a dual nature: they are what they are, and they are part of a greater whole. Each number is a unique state of numerality, contingent upon the whole for its existence and relative value. It is distinct but also interconnected with all numbers, woven seamlessly within the fabric of Number itself. Continue reading

God Between the Numbers, Part 1: Three Kinds of Infinity

Posit any two numbers, no matter how relatively close in proximity on any practical spectrum of measurement, and you can use runaway decimal place explosion to create another transcendent infinity, each with its own infinite set of infinities within. Continue reading

God Between the Numbers, Introduction: The Pantheism Problem

Spiritual literature doesn’t derive its potency from logic or reason or historical accuracy or scientific veracity. It is powered by personal authenticity. It creates an alchemical blend of fact and fantasy to activate that gnostic engine of Self-remembrance, access deeper levels of our consciousness than we generally see and utilize in a world demanding sharp sensory attentiveness, and achieve the harmonic convergence of heart and brain that only the individual soul can feel and know has occurred.

It Takes One to Mango

I only needed one mango to get the experience of Mango, so I chose one. I don’t need to eat all 20 of them to know that they taste of Mango, and I’m sure they’re all delicious because they come from the same source. Continue reading

Emergence of the Contemplative Shaman — Introduction

The properties of Divine wisdom —which include intuition, conscience, compassion, agape love, and holistic thought— are actually adaptive traits necessary for our survival in the fractured world that our cognitive intelligence created. Only this wisdom can bring us back into harmony with each other and with Nature. Continue reading

The Dual Overview Effect of Pantheism

In April 2017, a collective of space enthusiasts and provocateurs calling themselves the Autonomous Space Agency Network (ASAN) launched a weather balloon with a camera and a message for the current president of the United States of America. Billed as the “first protest in space,” it was intended to speak against the administration’s proposed budget … Continue reading

Emergence of the Contemplative Shaman–Part One, Ch 2: Ego is to Self as Money is to Wealth

In a reader’s comment to the the first chapter of this series, it was pointed out that hyperindividualism, though a pre-existing term, has little by way of an established, consensus definition. In her words: “In one article, the word ‘hyperindividualism’ was used to argue that excessive protections of individual rights have led to mass shootings because … Continue reading

Do Pantheists Have Souls (or does Soul have them)?

We are the timeless essence of Existence, expressing itself in time as you and me, him and her, this and that, giving each its own unique perspective of the Whole. The experience of the soul –perhaps the verb “souling,” however clumsy for its newness, is the clearest way to convey it– is to be uniquely aware of the the universality of this expression.

Emergence of the Contemplative Shaman — Part One, Ch 1: Staring Down the Crisis of Hyperindividuality (and not blinking)

With cognitive skills unsurpassed in the Terran biosphere, humanity represents the local crest of an evolutionary wave of subjective, individuated awareness within the ocean of Life. We are by far the most refined apertures through which the universe can know and study itself, at least in our neck of the cosmic woods. This wave, however, … Continue reading
