Me

Ups and Downs: An Introduction

So far in my writings I’ve been examining topics that display symmetry between the left and right arms of the infinity symbol: logic and emotion, fulfillment and motivation, self and reflection. But more often than not, infinity is an imprecise representation of the dualistic concepts we encounter in daily life, since left and right as portrayed in

I’ve discovered a truth lately (there’s really just one Truth, but there are many ‘true’ projections of this Truth). People seem to think that it has no basis in “reality,” but in my opinion it is the basis of reality. Here it is: anything and everything anyone ever says is actually about themselves. If this is an

Ownership

I’ve heard and read many times that “the love of money is the root of all evil.” While this is likely a mistranslation of a bible verse it is certainly a pervasive idea in popular culture. It seems intuitive that greed is the source of many problems, but here I’d like to consider that perhaps greed

Perspective

It is easy to use logic to discount the subjective experiences of others. “How could you be cold? I’m perfectly comfortable.” “How could you see a ghost? They don’t exist.” “How does that upset you? You’re so unreasonable.” Usually, we get away with this trick of denial. It seems to be the norm in society

Motivation and Fulfillment

Some of us are quite sure of our uniqueness, while others are quite sure that nothing differentiates them from the crowd. But whatever you feel about yourself the vast majority of people I survey think that their feelings and experiences are inherently different from any and all other humans and beings. Try it yourself —

Space

We don’t need relativistic physics to tell us that space and time are the same concept. The farther away an object looks, generally, the further away it is. We think of these relationships in terms of sight because it is the sense we most frequently use in this context. We can see things from the

Reflection

There are an infinite number of ways to describe the process of eightstep me. In short, it is witness of the self, affirmation of me, and vision of the true nature of subjectivity. It unlocks universally accessible superpowers because it is an attempt to overcome a universally shared weakness: We are entirely and completely incapable of witnessing our ‘self.’  This is a

I’ve written at length about left and right, the whole and the parts, logic and emotion. While I haven’t precisely described the process behind eightstep me, or how to balance these two aspects of reality, if you really want the details or the bigger picture let’s set up a coaching session 🙂 However, I would like to write about

Vision

I’ve written about universally accessible superpowers and how balance (eightstep) is God… But how are these things connected? Fascinatingly, another way to ask this question is: What is consciousness? And while I have been asking this question constantly for nearly two decades I finally feel like my background in Philosophy, Psychology, and Neuroscience has equipped me with
