Wild dogs and wolves bark to warn the rest of the pack that an intruder is coming. Your domesticated dog identifies you as a pack-leader; he [or she] barks to warn you that an intruder is coming. As civilisation has advanced, the pack-bond the tribe, the family has been broken.
This is the root of the widely diagnosed "anomie" or "alienation" or "existential anguish" about which so many social critics have written so eloquently. What has happened is that the conditioning of the bio-survival bond to the gene-pool has been replaced by a conditioning of bio-survival drives to hook onto the peculiar tickets which we call "money". In traditional society, belonging to the tribe was bio-security; exile was terror, and real threat of death.
In modern society, having the tickets money is bio-security; having the tickets withdrawn is terror. Douglas, the engineer and economist, once made up a chart, which he showed to the MacMillan Commission in when they were discussing money and credit regulation. The chart graphed the rise and fall of interest rates from the defeat of Napoleon in to the date the Commission met in , and on the same scale, the rise and fall of the suicide rate in that one [hundred and?

Every time the interest rate went up, so did the suicide rate; when interest went down, so did suicide. This can hardly be "coincidence". When interest rises, a certain number of businessmen go bankrupt, a certain number of workers are thrown out of their jobs, and everybody's bio-survival anxiety generally increases.
Marxists and other radicals are urgently aware of such factors in "mental health" and hence scornful of all types of academic psychology which ignore these bio-survival issues.
Unfortunately, the Marxist remedy--making everybody dependent for bio-survival on the whims of a State bureaucracy--is a cure worse than the disease.
Bio-survival anxiety will only permanently disappear when world-wide wealth has reached a level, and a distribution, where, without totalitarianism, everyone has enough tickets. The ideal can only be achieved in a technology of abundance. Buckminster Fuller. But seriously, our one overriding concern should be to spread food, shelter, comfort, and possibilities across the globe, instead of guns, germs, and funky new economic paradigms.
It's a shame we can't maintain social zeal all the way to So, time to snip. We have the first circuit: bio-survival. Suckle and hug. Shrink and flee. What's next?

Politics The second circuit, the emotional-territorial networks of the brain, is concerned entirely with power politics. The "patriotic" circuit is built into all vertebrates and is perhaps million to million years old. Work The standard "authority" reflex on the emotional-territorial circuit is to swell the muscles and howl. You will find this among birds as well as mammals, and in the Board meeting of your local bank. The standard "submission" reflex is to shrink the muscles, lower the head, and "crawl away".
You will find this among dogs, primates, fowl and employees who wish to keep their jobs everywhere. The "egotist" behaves like "a two year old," in the common saying, because Ego is the imprint of the toddling and toilet-training stage.
Paul can be considered living influences--and they are: look around the world--this is only because their Signal has been carried to us by human symbol systems.
These systems include words, artworks, music, rituals and unrecognised rituals "games" through which culture is transmitted. We are ruled even more, and even less consciously, by the inventors of the wheel, the plough, the alphabet, even the Roman roads. Time to get snipping. On the historical level, this is the time-binding function described by Korzybski, which allows each generation to add new categories to our mental library--connecting new things, separating new things, reclassifying and reshuffling forever.
These are the distinctly human post primate characteristics. Thus, many existentially thinkable thoughts are socially unthinkable, since a everybody in a given society has roughly the same semantic imprint and b this is reinforced daily by assumptions that are mechanically taken for granted. We know ourselves as creatures of time; the "tale of the tribe", the totem pole, the Odyssey of Homer, the Old Testament, the Vedas, etc.
Science expands the third circuit into contemplation of time-spans that stagger our imaginations. The very use of written languages and other symbols like mathematics creates the time-binding sense of Korzybski: we know ourselves as receivers of messages sent by sages "of olde" and as potential transmitters of messages that may be scanned ages in the future. My poor aching fingers. Will I get sued for quoting so much? Will you still love me when I'm sixty four? Do drugs in fact short circuit the brains natural tendency to create deeper crevices and more long lasting neuropaths only possible through the processes of overcoming and resolving struggle this then leading to a deep inner transformation and more evolved consciousness?
Moreover, while the drug induced visionaries may have a similar understanding to those who utilize their own internal processes, who is best able to withstand the challenges of the future? Does the drug-induced vision even have meaning?
Is it lasting in the sense of the eternal or is it as momentary as the time it takes to induce and sustain it? Will it be deeply imbedded in the life of that person? If the V.
There are many great visionaries who have experienced these kinds of vicissitudes and great persecution and emerged with a heightened awareness or enlightenment. I am convinced that the visions and enlightened lives of those who all experienced one or more of the stresses mentioned above have earned them recognition as wise leaders of the future. Perhaps they possess a kind of terrestrial brain circuit that evolved as a result of this experience and again, because it was not drug induced but induced by not only stress but stress from a place of deep compassion for humanity, they are examples of what we as human beings are also equally capable.
Bodhisattva Maitreya, still perplexed asks how Shakyamuni could have taught so many brilliant bodhisattvas in the short period some 40 years after his attaining Buddhahood. He continues to beg Shakyamuni to relieve his doubt the second question.
According to Buddhist cosmology, the world is suspended in the air. The power of the karma of living beings that will be born first causes a small wind to arise in empty space out of thin air which circles into a wheel shape.
Upon this circling wind, circling water and then a gold circle take shape, and upon them form the land earthly circle , mountains and seas. Therefore, if the earth splits open and we penetrate to its core, we will reach empty space.
Thus it is reasonable to assume that the Bodhisattvas of the Earth live in this empty space. Why, then, do they not dwell up in the world but underneath the earth?
The summit of Mt. Sumeru is regarded as the dwelling place of heavenly beings.
As heavenly beings they are of the sentient beings transmigrating between the six paths and are therefore lower in status than bodhisattvas. In addition, there is a scene in which bodhisattvas from other worlds come to the dharma- gathering of the Lotus Sutra and in this case they fly to the dharma-gathering from above.
This suggests there may have also been extra terrestrial beings that joined the multitude Ibid. Underneath does not belong to here, nor does the air belong to there.
In sum, the dwelling place of the bodhisattvas of the earth is expressed to elucidate the high stage of the Bodhisattvas of the Earth pp. In addition, Bodhisattvas of the Earth are described as possessing authoritative virtues and diligence.
Their delight is constantly to be in a quiet place, exerting themselves diligently and never resting. Nor do they linger among human or heavenly beings, but constantly delight in profound wisdom, being free from all hindrances. Are these Bodhisattvas of the Earth extra terrestrial beings?
Does their description not sound like a higher intelligence? In Buddhism, overcoming the most challenging of circumstances is known as the third powerful enemy and without it one cannot attain enlightenment.Therefore, if the earth splits open and we penetrate to its core, we will reach empty space.

On the other hand, I believe we have an inherent sense of intelligence or consciousness that understands that there is no discontinuity between the past, present and future and that our lives have always existed and will always exist.

It is a guide book of "how to get from here to there", an amalgam of Timothy Leary's 8-circuit model of consciousness , Gurdjieff 's self-observation exercises, Alfred Korzybski 's general semantics , Aleister Crowley 's magical theorems , Sociobiology , Yoga , relativity , and quantum mechanics , amongst other approaches to understanding the world around us, and claiming to be a short book under pages about how the human mind works and how to get the most use from one.
