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.
Here you find the presentation-link.
The Bertalanffy Center of System Science organized a workshop asking about “Health and Big Data”. My question was “What are Symptoms? What is a diagnosis and what is judgement of pain?”. The presentation was well received and further question lead actually to the question “What is health?”.
One thing could be concluded: We can´t assume, that a practical work of a medical practitioner can be replaced by data from the past. This leads again to the “here and now” as initial principle of reality.
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.
This trialogue between myself, Kevin Oroszlán, and Cadell Last represents the second experiment in an attempt to open a new discussion on sexuality. The second question which structures our discourse is “How Can We Account for the Historical Emergence of Traditional Archetypes?”. In this discussion we attempt to approach the history of sexuality, gender, and their interaction in civilization to stabilize the archetypes of man and woman.
This trialogue between myself, Kevin Oroszlán, and Cadell Last represents the third experiment in an attempt to open a new discussion on sexuality. The third question which structures our discourse is “What is the difference between the evolutionary and religious worldview?”. In this discussion we attempt to approach the meaning of the difference between evolutionary and religious presuppositions and how it may impact our interpretations of self in intimate relationships. The will to eternity has been my major contribution to the common ground of evolutionary and religious worldview.

The new paradigm in Prague has a name: The Dynamic Paradigm. I had the pleasure to meet the members of the institute science21 and discuss their findings and insights on the nature of consciousness from an immanent and ever present moment. In combination to the Dynamic Paradigm which is experienced better understood, especially by flying, than only explained, a new education is envisioned. A new school as well as a new university teaching and training the full potential with new methods of project learning will be developed for a better living together. I am happy to contribute to join our powers.
This trialogue between Cadell Last, Kevin Oroszlán, and Daniel Dick represents the first experiment in an attempt to open a new discussion on sexuality. The first question which structures our discourse is “What is the Reality of Sexual Difference?”. In this discussion we attempt to approach the topics of sexual experience, metaphysics, mechanics and ethics.
Suddenly I found myself presenting in front of a small group of therapists, quantum physicists, consciousness researcher and amazing people with special talents. Erwin Laszlo was hosting at the heart of Tuscany the Conference on “Catalizing Paradigm Shift”. I was replacing the talk of Marcus Schmieke introducing our concept of the orthogonal complementarity and it´s reflexions based on the philosophy of Gotthard Günther and Johannes Heinrichs.
My catches of the conference have been many but I want to higlight three of them: Nitamo Montecucco, Kelly Schwegel and Frederico Faggin. Videos has been made and I will share them as soon as they are ready.
The basic line of the whole conference was to confirm, that material and mechanical views are not enough to explain the world, and introducing many practical and theoretical steps into the nature of consciousness and reality.
Some very hard facts have been presented that should shake the academic world, but have been ignored or just not widely known. I could find myself in a group of like-minded people discovering the secrets beneath the grounds and bridging places, times, institutions and mind towards holografic consciousness research and practice. Special thanks to the organizers: the Scientific and Medical Network and the Lazslo Institute.
Have a look into my presentation already a year ago. Since then I am less critical but more contructive with my arguments 🙂 and I also have to add, I was the first speaker after a long conference night …
Meeting with pioners, explorers and consciousness researchers on the frontiers of consciousness. A very exciting think tank round after the conference “Worlds of Consciousness” in June, Bad Nauheim, Germany.
