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.
I have been invited as a keynote speaker to the International Society of System Science Conference this year (https://www.isss.org/online-2021/) to talk about masculinity and was asked to prepare a video in case the technology does not work since it is an online conference. I am happy to share it with you:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzcPLG5_9l4&t=124s
Kevin, Cadell and me have been invited by the Manisphesto network to speak about Sex, Masculinity and God which ended up in appreciating learning processes along generations in different settings. Thanks to Owen Cox!
I have been if a compilation of some of my videos could be used to help people to sleep. I got a lot of good feedback and considering doing some more in this direction. Thanks !
Interview with Psychology 360
It has been a pleasure to engage in wonderful question with Simon Weissenberger on the Podcast “Psychology 360”.
The topics we deepened in our conversation reached from the book “Sex, Masculinity and God” to the human and psychological crisis we are facing right now due to COVID-19 with the consequences of emotional-social distancing to the digital beginnings of web3 with the possibility of token economy and its future implications.
The Stoa is a digital campfire around the most intriguing topics at the knife’s edge of what is happening now. Highly appreciated the level of interaction and questions on these 2 sessions with Tyson Wagner!
Here is Part I
And because we really enjoyed it… Part II:
Thanks to Rafael for the interview on his podcast!
Vielen Dank an Rafael für das Interview für seinen Podcast!
I have been inerviewed by the Remo, I dear friend I never met in person but we connect on a very beautiful way, evertime we speak.
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.
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.
Have a look into the full-lenght video set up by Cadell Last.
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.
