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!
Sometimes live is hard, especially when world situation does not comfort at all. Maybe you have troubles with your job, and then you might get ill and nobody can tell you want is the root of your illness.
Pain, first of all is never found in the body. It is an emotion and usually doctors sum it up as stress, when they accept a relation between mind and body. The eastern traditions acknowledge for millenia energy as a medium between the mind and the body.
When you get stressed, we tend to think to much, we tend to have negative emotions. All of that is a higher amount of energy that always calls you out to transform and to change.
If that energy is not put on track, it gets stuck where ever you are stuck. To much energy stuck creates heat. First, you might have difficulties to relax, and you might drink more alcohol or search for other comfort zone. Then you might have difficulties to sleep and according to the position and topic you are stuck get inflammations, which means bacteria are overcoming your immun system. If that continues without getting calmness and a new direction in life, it ends with an illness, which will force you to stop and to reexamine your life.
Energy has to flow, without resistance and free from holding on to it. Some people termed beautifully the saying: Let it go! And you will have freedom.
It is discomforting to change, but the sooner you change with the flow, the less life is going to call you out brutally.
In Germany we say, if you don´t listen, you will have to feel it.
So, don´t wait till it hurts, when life wants you the change.
Listen. And the best way to listen is to find calmness for youself.
All the best,
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.
We will never go back to “normal”, so, #whatif we have a drastic change.
#Whatif you are in 2030:
The basic income became a necessity to fulfill the basic needs, like food and housing after the pandemic crises and its economic consequences. This basic income is not to accumulate currencies, but to keep a balance of not too much and not too less (thanks to Vincente for that idea). The balance of the current-sees (thanks to CoGov.com for that model) is registered like a fractal in every computer in a distributed network running on blockchain technology.
Locally based agriculture has been the first to became self-organized without any intermediate businesses or merchants. The self-responsibility and self-organization of the registration of the goods on blockchain allowed also to find recycling pathways which first was done in small circle of permaculture and soft skills and later in globally interacting circular economy flows.
Every exchangeable good, physical product, soft skills, artwork and service is registered and matched according to searches and needs on a modular set of self-organized individuals and groups. Each module can a product, a song or a concert for example. Everybody has a set of modules, like a portfolio, which can be easily link to a group-module. The content of the interchangeable modules is not anymore centralized in websites, universities or companies, but distributed in such digitally or locally places. Most websites operate like a smartphone in which modules can have a digital place, like an app on a smartphone.
Daily and cultural practices to get out of the egocentric and competitive behavioral patterns towards a compassioned, community-based behavior are found in new jobs especially in the areas of healing, art and education.
There are different kinds of current-sees according to qualities. Some current-sees are set every day on zero. The exchange is based on your time and activity of where you are and what are you using or doing, which can be something individually like cleaning a place, caring about children or taking part in three groups in one day dedicated to a common purpose like developing hardware for computers. Basically, everybody is self-employed and self-responsible. That means everybody is his or her own bank, shop, company, service provider and has always the freedom to interact in different groups. Some other current-sees are on a default-mode according to responsibility taken by individuals or taken by a group for a certain time. Groups also have the goal to reach a balance as a group instead of a continuous growth. Random-acts-of-kindness is a non-binary exchangeable current-see, which can be just given.
It is also possible to solve conflicts and conceive consensus by percentage or by 100 % with the own creations of inner truth meanings linked to their references (thanks to Formwelt.info). Within a group (of 3-8 people) the experience and the decisions of the group allow resolutions and agreements for actions, representatives, newcomers and forks, which are transparently archived in the distributed digital network. Some agreements and resolutions are between groups to define shared responsibilities for larger communities in bigger timeframes. These processes are paralleled with covering basic needs of food and living on the most efficient and ecological sustainable way.
A new worldview and paradigm are implemented to develop healthy boundaries, emotions and skills of operating with a free consciousness which is not anymore recreating an ego in a purely materialistic world. The mimicry of nature´s creation, and the development of emotional, and communicational maturity and intuition allow different forms of interaction in which place and time are less relevant. New ways of friendships, intimate and other relationships are changed because of truly sharing degrees of one consciousness. This happened due to a complete mind shift from the “I” to a compassioned behavior in which there is no “I in TEAM”. This extensive development of emotions and feeling, transparency and trust involve cultural techniques of self- and shadow exploration. Peace-making skills and collaboration are on an agreement of a worldwide network of groups. Learning is not anymore, a classroom in a school, but mentorship program which allows you to discover and learn from any group and record in your skills as a set of modules.
A lot of other ideas have been developed which only took place in thriving collaborations, meaningful conversations and mutual learning with truly free and compassioned actions, which had a bust in year 2020.
Back to our present to look back in history to see why collaboration and the technologies and especially the internet possibilities can make this happen:
Civilizations can hold together if communication channels and exchange of goods take place in a sustainable ecological environment. Usually a drastic change happened in the growth of civilizations when recourses per capital became scare. A war would rearrange status and power to let the oppressed work harder to get more energy out of the land. Technology would facilitate the energy that a civilization has to bring up to feed everyone. Only very few exceptions in the rise of civilizations were able to establish a new order without a war, but with collaboration and exchange of goods. About their communicational behavior we don´t have enough archeological record.
The more vertical a system is, the less communication it needs to keep a common purpose. The less communication a system has the more oppression takes place. In other words: The better the possibilities of communication the more egalitarian a society can be. For hunter and gatherer societies, known to be egalitarian, it is very easy to maintain this way of societal structure because the number of group members interacting are between 8-30 people and they live with almost no environmental circumscription. So, if someone bothers someone in a society like this, you can just leave. But if the density of the population gives you no place to go, you get a problem if you don´t find an understanding and a collaboration.
Therefore, I believe we definitely need a massive shift, hopefully without a World War III. With it or not, if we want to make this jump towards a unified planet caring about our next generations, and we must find more efficient ways to produce energy and consume less, which helps the Earth to recover. We will have a unified world if we use our technologies wisely and collaborate starting from a free spirit and compassioned soul. The area of information is young and has still a lot of potential but only if we as human evolve internally and expand our responsibility to care locally about the next person to you.
If we don´t growth as compassioned being and move out of grieve and accumulation of profit we won´t go anywhere with good technologies.
Imagine your #Whatif and share it with the tag.
After reading these sentences you will know when to be the fittest and when to be extraordiary.
To be adaptive and “to fit” has been the major skill for survival — according to science.
Why? Science is able to trace history back, but doesn´t create future. Even all prognostics are based on past events. The same sequence of self-inherent logic is applied to artificial intelligence, where a optimization of “fitting” products are aligned with the algorhythm, which “learns” from past events.
The extraordinary is a possible attractor for the future. We find the extraordinary in art and in human science because the spirit inspired humans. When time pass by, the fittest extraordinary becomes normal, but usually the extraordinary ideas and works accomplished by people don´t receive a lot of their success.
The actualization of the extraordinary is the creation of the possibility. Do you see the possibility? Can you create with your imagination a future vision? Create the extraordinary, that is the unique to YOU!
In terms of consciousness every past, present and future are part of your present. When we balance our unique future without comparison to others and without behavioral patterns, which hold on the past, but embrace the past as a meaningful sequence towards your present, then you are aware of your freedom of choice.
Do you see a destiny made cohesive by the integrative aspect of past, present and future? Or are you the creator of your present by knowing, it is you, who create your future?
Be extraordinary for your future, and be the fittest with your own past path.
Your fittest version of your collected sequences of the past are a cohesive and meaninful alignment with your present. Have compassion with whatever happend to you. By doing that you will find peace withyourself and create your unique and extraordinary future.
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.
Over the course of my last 2 years I could experience through my position at the Existential Consciousnss Institute a vast spectrum of leading edge science, which would expand my horizons in every direction. I really appreciated to be able to visit and speak in so many conferences and organize a lot scientific events. Meanwhile I was preparing myself for a PhD. Actually, I had written in these 2-3 years seven different PhD proposals. Some because I thought, the professors would allow it and others because I had changed my mind, the answers had come faster than writing them down, and new questions directed my curiosity. At a point I got saturated by so much information and the scientific narrow windows of collective and perpetual self-reaffirming processes.
I had been in the realms of consciousness, anthropology and system science, which are already out-of-the box-disciplines, which cause some trouble for a classical Newtonian Worldview. I always found myself with porfessionals, that would be either retired or would fear their reputation for not speaking out their whole truth. And science is all about citations and reputation. I decided to leave the academic realm.. not forever, but my main focus shifted. I feel supported by science for what I aim for and the way to look into the world. Being involved in so much information I felt to relate my knowledge into practice. The wish to help people in a more fundamental way evolved to the oppurtinity to create a community center for healing and culture in Germany, Ebermannstadt, a tiny cute little village. More will be announced soon.
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.
Many people believe that quantum physics is ushering in a new age. A new paradigm describes science for its field.
Renowned quantum researchers like Zeilinger are faced with many questions before their experiments and almost all of them agree that information is a fundamental quantity in the universe, maybe even more fundamental than matter, space or time at least in physics.
Thus, quantum physics now establishes the connection to consciousness and its exploration, since it is now somehow connected.
It is often assumed that everything is information. This means partly, in a scientific way of thinking, that everything only exists if we are aware of it or if it has been measured. Some go so far as to say that only consciousness exists.
Philosophers, who have been asking themselves for quite some time what are actually the preconditions of our knowledge, speak out again: Is thinking fundamental? Is it feeling first? Can we actually say something about what is true, and does it have anything to do with ourselves?
The spiritual and religious directions of our time, as well as some traditional religions usually have some statements in common: We are basically one. And, our way of life is shaped by our attitude towards the world. The more positive you are, the more positive something comes to you. Consequently, the entanglement of particles of quantum mechanics is used to explain that information is important; not only information itself, but also what kind of information. We are connected to each other and it doesn’t matter where you are, because the entanglement of the particles is not bound to a place, not even to a time.
Thus, the physicists walk over to the religious views. The spiritual and religious practitioners see themselves confirmed and the philosophers learn physics.
Basically, it doesn’t sound bad, but why do we experience each other separately? Why doesn’t the stone we throw through the air fly according to our intentional will? Do we only have to believe it more firmly? Do we only come to the conscious experience of quantum physics in an enlightened stage?
And can world peace and the ecological crisis be overcome with it? So far not.
We have several possibilities: Physicists can ignore quantum physics, or be content to admit that it is in contradiction to anything believed so far. Or, they have to deal with it in detail. This is not easy, at least experimentally and mathematically. Theoretically, it is less expensive but not easy either, because a new framework is needed to think about all this.
Spiritual and religious people can ask themselves to what extent everything is connected or not and how they can really make use of quantum physics.
And the philosophers could climb over the imagined fence of the disciplines to the physicists once more often and give them some advice for new questions.
The question of whether quantum physics can change the world remains unsolved, but it offers a new world view, a new way of understanding some principles of reality that makes a new world possible. How we have to understand this, is now up to the observer. But the stone still flies like never before.
