Life consists of two aspects. The phenomena, or that which is evident to the senses, and the pneuma, or that which lends character, substance, behaviour, or animation. The pneuma sets the form of material existence, and is not bound by the little sparks of energy that we think of as the loci of phenomena. The pneuma collapses into various states that are us as individuals.
You are not an object. You are not a body. You are not a memory or a history. You are not a creation of a artificer or artificial God. You are not the product of some mysterious mechanics. You are living meaning, not living thinking. You are here, because here is here.
“What difference is there, do you think, between those in Plato’s cave who can only marvel at the shadows and images of various objects, provided they are content and don’t know what they miss, and the philosopher who has emerged from the cave and sees the real things?” Desiderius Erasmus (Dutch Priest, Humanist and Editor of the New Testament, 1469-1536)

Your pneuma merges with that of all other entities. It is omnipresent. Like the holy ghost of Christian philosophy? Somewhat. It has a great many parallels. This is why it is acceptable to explain it as universal chi. Like the… Seek More
All energy falls into the baseline field. The zero-point energy field which is a constant non-degrading carrier wave. What my statement means is that there is no such thing as a “you” event. All events are universal events, or a… Seek More
Our relationship to pneuma comes down to time. Time as an object doesn’t exist. Time is a dialogue and exchange. Like coming into the online world of Second Life, the server says things to your computer and your computer says… Seek More
There are consequences for the influence of our focus, and humans are not graceful viewers. They are not the only ones watching either. Our planet is a huge viewer (much like we come into Second Life with viewer software), and… Seek More
