Ambihemispherical Holosophy’s 12 Translucidly Mindful Words: 9 Simultaneity

Ambihemispherical Holosophy’s 12 Translucidly Mindful Words: 9 Simultaneity

The term simultaneity was introduced by philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer in an attempt to find a rational approach to coincidences in time (and space) that seem random and without casual logic but which nevertheless reveal meaningful connections within the life of an individual.  Following the scientific knowledge about the cosmos of his time and testimonies of philosophers of all times, he had come to the conclusion that there had to exist a purposeful simultaneity in the cosmic workings which most of human beings have at some point experienced in their lives in form of an apparently pre-determined event.

Ambihemispherical Philosophy’s 12 Translucidly Mindful Words:
7 Fearlessness

As we all have experienced since the beginning of the COVID 19 epidemic in spring 2020, a lot of fear has been generated recently. Are we fully aware of the impact this has on our lives? Are we not still spending many more hours in front of screens and in social media than before the start of the confinements in spring 2020? Are we not almost permanently tying our brains to our smart phones? Yet the times of confinements are over. The times of using virtual communication as valid replacement for direct contact should be over. There are no reasons anymore for living second lives virtually, the opening possibilities of post-confinement could push on with the spontaneously overwhelming power of the direct real experience of the sensual soul-body. Social media and chats can be used as communication tools – not as real-life replacements.

5 Primary Consciousness – White holes 

Did  you  ever  wonder  how much  more  conscious  we humans  could  be?  Consciousness  is  not  just  consciousness,  there  are  many  different  degrees  and  qualities  to  consciousness.  The  human  consciousness  is  most  probably  pretty  limited.  Imagination  and  science  can  push  the  limits  of  consciousness, so just imagine: A white hole in Einstein´s theory of black holes is the mathematically  resulting other side of the black hole, you might call it the other hemisphere of the black hole.

4 Discernment

 

“Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness of other people.” C.G. Jung

This is very true – if your darkness reaches the depth of the darkness of the person you are dealing with. What if it doesn’t? Then, thinking C.G.Jung’s sentence with logic to the end, you have no tool whatsoever to know how to deal with the darkness of the other, or, worse, you might not even be able to recognize it as darkness. The darkest human darkness knows how to be very charismatic and highly seductive.

Ambihemispherical Holosophy’s 12 Translucidly Mindful Words: 2 Truthfulness

2 Truthfulness

Truthfulness comes together with complete forgiveness in importance for the development of a benevolent human consciousness. Knowing that there is complete forgiveness does not mean that we are not responsible for living and speaking truthfully. Complete forgiveness is the grace of highest benevolent consciousness even when we stumbled and committed wrong doings – and it can only be complete once we admitted our mistakes completely.

Ambihemispherical Holosophy’s 12 Translucidly Mindful Words: – 1 Forgiveness

1 Forgiveness

Forgiveness is an indispensable and powerful tool of human evolution. The idea of complete forgiveness is rooted in profound philosophy beyond religious ideas. It seems to come from a much deeper intelligence than the idea of karma chasing you with pain or choosing you for terrestrial material gratification – which is a relatively primitive idea deduced from our knowledge of physical cause and effect and, certainly, from the human impulse of revenge and reward (and therefore has a high potential for Machiavellian abuse).

By Susanne Steines

Arriving at the end of 2020 we find ourselves not only politically and socially in a very significant moment of history, but also philosophically. Some pictures of demonstrations in European cities against COVID19-politics or of the partly violent demonstrations in the US of Trump-supporters show a bizarre mix of antiscientific conspiracy ideas proclaimed by spiritualist groups and darkest medieval religious fundamentalism, and all of this in the face of actual radical islamist terrorism.

The Phenomenon Michel Houellebecq – A recent interview with him about religion

The Phenomenon Michel Houellebecq – A recent interview with him about religion

Michel Houellebecq, in an interview with Agathe Novak-Lechevalier in spring 2017 in Malaga, speaks about himself and religion. He mentions Joris-Karl Huysman, who has a very important role in his novel “Submission”, and says that “for him (Huysman) esthetic beauty is in fact the reason for his religious believe, it is, to be exact, even the only reason for him: he believes because it is beautiful. In order for that to work, that is, in order for beauty itself to produce faith you will have to surround yourself with very esthetic people.”

In my ZEIT-Interview with him in 2000 “Man muss den Tod abschaffen” – “We will have to abolish death”, which is also published in the book “Das Phänomen Houellebecq”, by Thomas Steinfeld, Köln, 2001, he said that if people were truly joyful they most probably would produce pure beauty.

In his recent, extraordinary interview in Malaga, he says he experiences faith during a religious ceremony and loses faith anytime he leaves church. And he claims that he does not know why. A wise platonic teacher.

He seems not to have lost faith in the feelings of beauty, awe and joy generated by devote romantic love (and not to forget, sexual ecstasy, as he mentions it himself in the interview referring to depictions of sexual organs in  historic religious expressions of early humanity). He has recently been married again. His possibility of an island.

Institutional religions have high jacked the ingenuine human feelings of love, joy, awe and devotion to be able to dominate the tremendous power of a liberated humanity and utilize the energy generated by sublimation of the enslaved believers. This is one of the reasons of the proximity of Transhumanism and institutionalized religions. Houellebecq was the first intellectual to call for a “Présence Humaine” – human presence in his song with this title (2000) and to write a novel about a transhuman future in which a transhuman genetically engineered immortality does not appear to be very attractive – “The possibility of an Island” (2005).

Asking Houellebecq about a possible existence of a profound “religiosity” in himself, Novak-Lechevalier mentions his poem “La grace immobile” from his poetry book “Non-Réconcilié” (Gallimard, Paris, 2014) which allows Houellebecq to explain his understanding of grace with a certain fatigue and with a kind of Buddhist contemplation in a not religious way in which Schopenhauer spoke about it. Asked the same question with regard to his early poem “Le Corps De L’identité Absolue” (and one of my favorite poems of his which I based many of my questions on back in 2000 and which I missed when reading “Non-Réconcilié”, it is not in the book!) from the poetry collection “Rester Vivant” (Flammarion, Paris, 1997, page 102) Houellebecq would have to go deeper in his explanations of his own “religious” experiences.

Nevertheless, the below posted interview is one of the best Michel Houellebecq-Interviews ever. Anybody knows of a translation to the English?
