Notes

Reports conversion from atheism to mysticism. Reports the use of ayahuasca to learn "many different things...the most important was that everything in the universe is really one thing. There was a perfect unity which had degrees of manifestation, with human beings at the top, no doubt."[1]

Alfie Fox: working "for several years now you have been developing a method which you say could lead man away from the threat of extinction and towards the realization of his true capabilities and purpose. How real is the threat of extinction?"[2]

New system "an entire system, totally coordinated, specifically categorized, and scientifically proved as being efficient, as being capable of fulfilling the job that it is supposed to. Q: You're putting forward an idea of a unified system. But an entire system, totally coordinated, specifically categorized, and scientifically proved as being efficient, as being capable of fulfilling the job that it is supposed to."[3]

New system a scientific method toward getting enlightened. [4]

New system = Arica School. "I will declare very clearly that Arica is a mystical school, so in that way the purpose of the entire teaching is finally to unite ourselves with the Eternal Creator, which is, by the way, the only goal of any true mysticism."[5]

Predicts and argues for the merging of science and mysticism.

Trialetics: "I want to stress again that only a new way of reasoning can provide us with that tool of intercommunication and understanding. And this new way of reasoning is really a logic, a new logic which will deal with the 'unity' of the process rather than with the process in itself." [6]

"...our world is not our invention, that we are a humanity which is growing in a pre-established sequence to a pre-established result. The crises we are living in is not because we are bad. It is because it is part of the historical process."[7]

Argues that history moves through "pre-established points."[8] Suggests that these points are associated with the great mystical teachers, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Christ, around the discovery of "The Unity."[9] The "unity is the experience of unity in a powerful Connection Experience, probably coupled with the capture of information received from monadic locations in The Fabric.


Argues for the need to develop a new logic and framework. "Dialectical thought has made the Industrial Revolution possible; there is nothing wrong with it. But now it is time to change it because the competition and the opposition which was necessary during that period-which was absolutely necessary then-is now, in the moment we are living, totally unnecessary. We can compete no more. The territory of our planet is too well known. All the experts in all the areas are saying exactly the same thing, that this planet is limited, and we must start thinking in terms of good administration of its limited resources. If radiation will not kill us, the bad allocation of resources will!"[10]

"Dialectical thought, as we know very well, explains change. But change by itself is not an endless line of change. Change does exist, but it exists in cycles that are preestablished.So you have at the same time something permanent, the cycle, and something which changes, and they are not contradictory. That would be what I call 'trialectics', or the 'logic of the unity'." [11]

Attempts to move beyond opposition, good evil, binary categorizations. Suggests trialectics. "Now, the proposition of trialectics is to establish not only the fact of change, that the change exists, but that change is not random, is not, let's say, a coincidence. Change is preestablished, as for example, the seasonal changes of the year are pre-established; there is summer, there is winter, etc. There are the seasons. The changes of the moon as it moves around the earth are pre-established. Every change is then pre-established. There is a moment for us to be infants, and then children, and then becoming adolescents is preestablished. We do not become adolescent when we are thirty years old. The moment is pre-established, the moment when it happens organically. It also happens organically that we come into maturity, which occurs when we are not going to grow any more, and that's that. It is a pre-established point, and the change is there. So we must understand, then, that we see two conditions in our world, I mean, in our external world: the condition that there is change, and the condition that there is a preestablished point where change will occur."[12]

"I have been using the word 'challenge', the same word that Arnold Toynbee used for describing how cultures are produced. Cultures are produced because there is a challenge to accomplish. And I would say there couldn't be a clearer definition of what I call trialectics, in the sense of history changing."[13]

"Again, we have to recognize that all nature and all of what we know as evolution are again the product of separate jumps to very concrete points. For example, the jumps between the animal genera from one form to another in the scale of evolution: no doubt there is a very well established scale already. It's very easy to see the jumps, as for example, between birds and mammals, etc. There is a jump to something totally different but still there is a sequence"[14]

Need for survival is what triggers the change and "jump."

"...true therapy consists in ridding ourselves of the illusion of individuality and dissolving our egocentrism in Cosmic Consciousness.[15]

Interestingly, early on tagged Carlos Castenda as a fraud.[16]
