Hail to Plotinus ! - master of non-duality-of-the-universe of his day
Hail to Nagarjuna ! - for his doctrine of emptiness
Some ideas of using an expanding ( level by level ) triangular prism model -
to map the evolving states/stages/levels/lines/types of personal development -
summarised by Umberto Eco - famous for The Name of the Rose - the 1986
Italian-French-German drama mystery film of which utilised Escher's concepts
as per his - ascending & descending/relativity/house of stairs.
Angels do not speak for they understand each other through a sort of
instantaneous mental reading, and they know everything they are allowed
to know .... not by any use of language but by watching the divine MIND
Which is all good stuff in the pursuit of "mindfulness " -
"Bringing your attention back to what is real can become a spiritual
practice, known as mindfulness. Mindfulness can be made into a way of
life, and when it is, transformation becomes a way of life too, as natural
and unforced as anyone could wish."
If you want to become an enlightened person, if you long for inner
freedom and if you are so audacious as to aspire to take responsibility
for evolution's next step, you simply cannot afford for your
awareness to be obscured by the ego's agendas or by the
unconscious and habitual beliefs and expectations of your culture.
For those of us who have awakened to the mysterious impulse to
evolve, and who understand that the destiny of the interior of the
cosmos is dependent upon our conscious evolution, cultivating inner
transparency becomes a matter of great urgency. If you are deeply
committed to this evolutionary endeavour, you find that you want
to face everything and avoid nothing, because the last thing you
would want is to act out of some unconscious egoic motive in such
a way that would obstruct your own development.
So you begin to cultivate awareness as if your life depended on it,
because when your life is dedicated to the evolution of
consciousness and culture, it does.
~ Andrew Cohen
MINDFULNESS is a form of mental activity that trains
the mind to become aware of awareness itself and to
pay attention to one's own attention.

I have visited and read, or tried to read, all your blogs todate and am sorry to say that most of it I fail to comprehend - not my 'language' so to speak. But that does not matter because others obviously do. For my part though, I recognise the TRUTH in some of the 'simple' statements e.g. that about the angels immediately above, and that of Carl Jung elsewhere. You certainly have been busy. Keep up the good work, my friend.
… and here we are 40 years later, contemplating the fact that - virtual
experience is clearly a tool that will be a growing part of life from now on
… on the very day that the author of 2001: Space Odyssey - Arthur C. Clarke
has died in Columbo, Sri Lanka at the age of 90. The first person to propose
geostationary communications satellites, Clarke's novels often reveal a realistic
appreciation of orbital mechanics. After working on wartime radar, Clarke
published an article in Wireless World in 1945 in which he foresaw a global
communications network, including worldwide television, linked by relay
stations in geosynchronous orbits. This was 12 years before the first satellite
was launched, 20 years before the first geosynchronous communications
satellite (Early Bird), and 40 years before direct broadcast satellites fulfilled
his prediction of beaming television straight into people's homes.
ALL hail to Arthur C. Clarke and may HE REST IN PEACE.
Having expanded my AlphaINDEX of Stories to include Martha's 'piece' on
her thoughts of interlinking with other people's personal alphaindexes in
some way … I was pleased to have re-read On this anniversary … to remind
me to tell YOU ALL that the AlphaINDEX of Stories, in mobius strip format,
would be established as an integral thread of the ipSphere protocol,
to stimulate, promote and execute the collection of that proportion of the
profits, collectable through every related IP transaction, which would
ensure the survival of LIFE on EARTH ; to reflect, initially, both the
old order and new order experiences of the people.
