Solon Synthesis
1. Theory and history of the city - Preamble on the 'green' city Print E-mail
ekl1-81The concept of the city derives its origin from the biotope and the seat of man, but also generally from the seat and biotope of the species, both collectively and individually.

For man the particularity is that property, institutions, and land are conceived in a contractual sense. He conceives, that is, of a new dynamic, in parallel with that dynamic which develops in the ecosystems.

The need for a major new spiritual planetic undertaking PDF Print E-mail

Projeto_Animalia_19

In regarding the planetic field as one of spiritual entity and unity, it is important that we should point out two things:
First, humanity has entered definitively upon an economic crisis, having set in motion the environmental crisis in parallel.

THE TRANSFORMATION OF PSYCHOLOGY INTO AN OPEN SYSTEM OF IDEAS PDF Print E-mail
6_thoughtNew ideas come up in every age. The problem with such new ideas is that it is very easy for many to say what somebody said to Freud when he first described his theory: that he says a lot of things that hold true, but others have said them before him, and a lot of new things, which, however, are of no importance and are nonsense. After so many years, nobody now remembers this person; but everybody remembers Freud.

THE QUEST FOR THE SOUL OF THE SELF AND OF THE COSMOS PDF Print E-mail
4_Par18_dore

The fundamental question of psychology, as that has been posed through philosophical thinking and by human need and evolution, is what exactly the soul is, and in what dimension it is manifested.
If we were to approach the issue of the soul in a Cartesian manner, the soul is expressed with its seat as a small cone or conarium, the pineal gland (the 'third eye').

THE CHALLENGES OF THE NEW PSYCHOLOGY PDF Print E-mail
Psychology_barnstarPsychology started out as a science under the burden of a positivistic mimetism of the natural sciences. It was born in defining and delimiting an object (psychological man) which it receives historically through the civilisation of man, and through a lengthy culture of concepts and communication, as that has been structured chiefly by the trends of philosophy.

JEALOUSY AND COMPETITIVENESS IN THE FACE OF WHAT IS HIGHER PDF Print E-mail

mind-competitivenessIn times of crisis, the fear of death, which we exile to the unconscious in times of 'abundance' and normality, comes to the surface. Although it is always present within us, we prefer to leave it to slumber rather than facing it with honesty. This temporising has many practical consequences, at an individual and social level. Until we become conscious of how much the fear of death determines all our reactions, everything will be interpreted in terms of brute power.

TABOO, TOTEM & TRANSCENDENCE OF THE WILL TO POWER PDF Print E-mail

Oidipodeio SimplegmaFreud confirmed with psychoanalysis what the experience of wars, religious and political persecutions, and other atrocities demonstrate: that man inclines towards aggressiveness and is characterised by a tendency towards domination. Freud analysed exclusively the lower aspect of man and proclaimed that civilised behaviour is none other than a mask which is adjusted to social and legal rules.

The need for man to be positive and to cast off his passivity PDF Print E-mail

JuleflueToday's lack of positivity, and its imitations
Human life has been very much taken captive by inertia and the fear of death and all the extensions of that fear. In reality, it could not justifiably be maintained that man's expression is positive and creative, even in his ostensibly most active behaviours - taking into account, of course, that there are always individual exceptions. Human activation normally has as its aim the satisfaction of some need, and, consequently, the averting of some danger.

The development and epicentre of the crisis PDF Print E-mail

Self othersThe world-wide, individual, and collective crisis of concepts, ranking of priorities, the plan, invocation, co-operative recognition, and transcending synthesis. The world-wide development of the crisis emerges as increasingly  independent of the parts which are undergoing it, since it has an accumulating dynamic and presents us with a fundamental difficulty in an overall understanding, and, therefore, in a drastic handling of it. This is a profound crisis which takes many forms and involves many factors.

In quest of the future PDF Print E-mail

columnsIn the quest of the future in this period of transition, there is not enough optimism, but, instead, a desperation which baptises our thought and nature in a hostile field of inflationary chaos. For years now, in looking at post-War realities, we see, released like winds from the bag of Aeolus, greed and absurd egocentrism taking over the whole of the horizon, with very few intervals of sharing and correctness. This is the 'Beast of the Apocalypse', the domination of bestial absurdity. This domination has been described by Marcuse as rational organisation of irrationality.[1]

The need for thinking and responsibilities for our way of thinking Print E-mail

thought Filos 450(Part One)
As time passes and the crisis, local and world-wide, deepens, it becomes increasingly evident that none of the world's problems is going to be solved if man does not make up his mind to devote his attention conscientiously and intensively to the field of concepts. His responsibility is individual and cannot hide behind collective responsibilities or the responsibilities of politicians; and, moreover, awareness of this responsibility cannot be postponed, because of the urgency of current circumstances.

New psychology and the synthesis of all the currents of thought PDF Print E-mail

7_sunriseIt is our profoundly held belief that as our spiritual approach, as humanity, will broaden out, the field of ideas will revert as the definitive feature of a new cycle of development of the apprehension of the soul and of psychology. Focusing on the field of ideas will prompt psychological inquiry and science towards a new development, in parallel with the progress of eco-psychological thinking and the development of the ecological sciences, the neurosciences, and the sciences of information and communication.

FROM INFERIORITY TO FREEDOM AND SHARING PDF Print E-mail
5_Conception_commonWe live in an age which is ripe for us to put an end to one-dimensional monisms, to secluded concepts and ideas, and for us to recognise the collectivity of ideas, of dimensions, and their holistic, synthesising, and validating dynamic. The broadening of our scientific knowledge leads to a new way of apprehension, to a new quality of apprehension.

SYMBOLIC IDOLISATION PDF Print E-mail

Deep CoverThe experience of the spirit is world-wide. Those who have experienced it have left as a legacy to civilisation a roadmap which will assist anyone who is interested in following the path to the spirit. No symbolic roadmap has escaped idolisation - dogmatisation; the symbols have become a dead letter. Modernity was built upon disdain for the transcendental and exorcised any concern with symbols; in the place of God it put the state and the power of analytical thought to organise and standardise. This model of life is being crushed.

FROM THE POWER-BASED TO THE COLLECTIVE MODEL PDF Print E-mail

OdipusAndSphinxYet again, it seems that we are heading towards an explosion of barbarity. The magnitude of this catastrophic explosion will be in proportion to the intensity with which we trigger the model of competition.  Our fixation with this archaic phobic model threatens the sustainability of civilisation and its meaning. Archetypal symbols of this fixation are Oedipus and Caesar.

The crisis, the inadequacy and re-planning of education PDF Print E-mail

Freeform1Education in the history of mankind has had two basic aspects:
A.
One aspect has been that education which has been associated with human creativity and freedom, and which has been met with at certain junctures in small numbers of creative thinkers in all periods. It has been a relationship of spiritual discipleship with a substantive dimension of self-education of man.

B. The political history of education - Basic historical points Print E-mail

2.da_VinciIn the history of ancient Egypt, the great authority of the Pharaohs and the priesthood predominated, and shaped two levels of education:

1. The level of education of the privileged for the perpetuation of their class. This was not entirely a matter of ritual; it involved a direct flow of information without ritual, such as, for example, the training of Egypt's scribes. At this level those who presided over the rites, the organisers and masters of ceremonies, such as the Pharaohs, were educated.

Return – The way of a new consciousness PDF Print E-mail

Compass CaThe whole of our world, though it may be tightly interwoven with the body, is consciousness. We are and we define our identity through consciousness. Consequently, consciousness is the factor which sets aims and models.
If we do not take up a correct position towards consciousness, we will not take up a correct position towards anything. We will have no apprehension of the essential wager in the field of its causes. We shall be 'ignorant of the self and its house'.
