A real pleasure to be interviewed by my friend Xerxes Voshmgir at his Podcast Challeging ParadigmX. In here I focus on my personal journey of life and curiosity and my insights into consciousness bridging spirituality and science.
Here is the youtube-video of my talk about the universal cultural patterns of becoming whole and healthy in higher sense of coherence.
My aim was it, to show how different approaches in different cultures operated with stories, figures and symbols towards similar mechnism of overcoming the shadows and the illusion of things towards a kind of light. This small introduction into my talk has to be seen in itself as a repeating pattern of words in narrative sequences, which enfolds themselves in time. At the very core of any good story lies the truth, the beauty, the wisdom and the compassion especially to those close and next to you on an equal basis. The stories tells us an narrative sequence which can be perceived as an imagine of oneself, to the extend one can identify and detache oneself it. “What do we understand?” sets up the horizon tied to the ability of your consciousness through compassion.
Thank you very much for the invitation to the conference and to have the pleasure to introduce the whole topic.
It was a pleasure to give a lecture on the Coordinates of Consciousness from the “Here and Now”. Thank to all the organization. Especially to the Youth Council, led by Dennis Johnson.
Here is the Prezi-presentation for you.
The International Congress “Worlds of Consciousness 2019” was a great success!
After a short introduction of the past activities of the ECR- Institute, Marco Bischof jumped spontanously in, to give an overview on the work of Brenda Dunne and Roger Nelson, higlightening their influence and importance in the current debate about mind-matter-interaction.
Brenda Dunne gave her presentation describing her work with Robert Jahn and telling anecdotes from her experiences. Roger Nelson impressed the audience with his Global Consciousness Project, which in short says “We are all connnected” and delivers global coherent data during global events based on random-generators spread all over the world. Sacinanda Swami led the whole congress with the vibration of the OM-chantinginto a delightfull meditation. Christopher Bache opened up heaven with the diamonds he found during his LSD-experiences and ater lunch Jan Rak showed the physical reality based on quantum terms. Ervin Lazlo send his message about the illusion of the separation between spirituality and science. Regina Hess brought the feminine energy in the hall. Coming to the end, Mathias Schüz precisely showed how ethical business works and Christian Halper and Marcus Schmieke set down the vision to investigate further the information field theories and practices as well as to strenghen networks and collaborations among like-minded institutions.
The presentations will be soon online. Thanks to everybody particitpating and making the event possible. Special thanks to Marcus Schmieke, Christian Halper, Nadine Förster, Hans-Werner Quast, Christopher Sauter, Falk Hubalt, Mathias Polnicky, Jonas Werner and Dong Doan and many more.
The conference of the Institute of Noetic Science this year in Santa Barbara, California has been an inspiring conference by having equally men and woman, spirituality and science presenting. I have never left so many business cerds behind. I will come back. Have a look into their programs! Dean Radin, the head of research really is a character. I got the chance to speak to him. Asthonishing and precise work.
The impression of the biggest scientific conference on consciousness in the year have been: the work of Harald Atmaspacher, Embodiment Sessions, espcially of Donata Schöller, and keynote of Mark Solms about the importance of emotions and feelings related to consciousness. There are many more to mention, on my opinion these were my highlights beside of many talks and chats in breaks and the evennings.
I did the following poster presentation proposing a “Multi-value Perspective of Processing Existential Consciousness in Terms of Cybernetics and System Science“. It is a Synthesis of the work of Peyn, Luhmann, Heinrichs, Bateson and Günther. Talking with Heinrich about it later he would suggest some redefinements. The steps might not be 100% congruently, but a way to see an repeating pattern.
I have been kindly invited to speak in Prague about Mysticism and Science about “Patterns of Transformative Consciousness”. Basically, my focus was the processual nature of becoming conscious in the realms of science and mysticism and positioned these ways in a fractal pattern.

The 3rd Symposium of Existential Consciousness Research took place in Castle Kränzlin. My main insights are directed into the questions of eternity and here and now, because the philosophical contributions led to different dimensions of viewpoints, evolving towards truth, love, freedom and beauty. Every path of a penomenological and existential point of view is dynamic and has a direction. Each of it shares to some extend different and same kinds of here and now to reach out to these virtues. Is it the here and now of the body position? Is it the here and now of the day-dreamers dream? Is it the conscious I which unfolds its acutalization constantly in reflexions and how many dimensions of reflexions intersect with different here and nows? Special thanks to science21, to Johannes Heinrichs and of course the Existential Consciousness Institute. More information follows on the website of the Institute. Next meeting will be at the in March. I am really looking forward to the next frontiers of consciousness research.
