There are useful symbolic representations that can be used to understand consciousness processes and causality in reality. The terms Wheel of Life and Circle of Life, as well as the symbolism of the Trinity, Flower of Life and Seed of Life, can be referenced to express understanding of ourselves and the reality we operate within.

  • On externalizing our power:
    “It was said by the ancients that the Gods above were eternally battling with the dragons of darkness below. This great war is the Armageddon of Christian theology, the last great war that is said to end the eternal conflict of human emotions.
    The true student of occult philosophy knows that this battle must take place within himself when at last, with the sword of the spirit, he masters the dragon of passions, death, and degeneracy.
    Man has within himself all the principles he worships as gods outside his own being… When we are able to realize this we will have solved the mystery of the Great War, the war that every individual must fight out for himself, with the higher nature to guide him and aid in his choice.”

  • Mind, projection, inventing fantasy into reality, exactly what I have been talking about in my recent work, described by a pupil of Gerald Massey. He understands the problem we have been in for thousands of years. And he is talking specifically about Platonic “soul” belief invention. – KN

    “The imperfection is in our feeble powers of reading, not in nature’s reporting. Clear, legible, articulate, she prints her manuscripts for us in all her forms. Without the objects she presents for our minds to work on, our conceptions would remain as formless as the void it would wander in. Mind can only discover what nature has presented to view, can grasp only the truth that nature pictures. If God’s version of truth as he has portrayed it in nature can not be received explicitly, from what other source may we expect to gain a vision of it? The real maya or illusion is not in the natural forms, but in the mind’s propensity to conceive or project forms created by its own inventiveness, but which do not agree with the truth extant or potential in nature. So much of mystical afflation thus becomes a real illusion, a sad and wasteful quixotic tilting at windmills of phantasy.”
    – Alvin Boyd Kuhn (Ultimate Canon of Knowledge)

    Psychology. Ideas. Belief. Attachment. “Philosophical introspection” trumps reality as it is for many… which is how many people invent ideas and others accept them and remain attached to these beliefs. This psychological self-deception, self-cast spell, self-hypnosis, does not only apply to “flat-earth” conceptions. Counter-cultural, counter-establishment polarized inversions based on simplistic observational assessments. Blind anti-“scientism” turned into anti-science.

    “But in the 21st century, can they be serious? And if so, how is this psychologically possible?”

    “If you’re faced with a minority viewpoint that is put forth in an intelligent, seemingly well-informed way, and when the proponents don’t deviate from these strong opinions they have, they can be very influential. We call that minority influence,” Douglas said.”

    “Magical thinking”, i.e. imagination factory inventing beliefs, ideas, concepts in trying to assign significance, import and meaning by providing answers to questions of insecurities, doubt, discomfort, and fear of the unknown (especially fear of death), of such questions as as origins, creation, purpose, life, death, “afterlife”, etc. This also ties into attachment to those beliefs, or attachment to people that attach us to beliefs.

    “Hutson said almost everyone is guilty of attaching undue significance to objects associated with people they idealize.”

    “Mind power

    Psychology research shows most people wrongly assume their thoughts can become reality — even people who say they don’t believe in telekinesis or ESP. “If you think about something and then it happens, you feel a little bit responsible for it,” Hutson said. It’s an irrational feeling. Why do we feel it?

    “It’s a byproduct of how we understand causality,” he said. “If there are two events, A and B, if A happens before B, if there are no other obvious causes of B, and if A and B are conceptually related, then we assume A caused B.”

    Consider kicking a soccer ball: if you move your leg just before the ball goes flying, you naturally assume that your leg caused the ball’s motion. We apply the same logical steps even if event A is merely a thought. “If you think about something before it happens and your thought is somehow related to the event, then you might consider your thought as a possible influence on the event,” Hutson said.

    The faulty logic gets reinforced every time you think a positive thought, such as visualizing a successful basketball free throw, and then the thought boosts your confidence, which affects your behavior, and — voila! — the ball swooshes through the net.”

    “Meaning of life

    What do religion, anthropomorphism, mysticism and the widespread notion that each of us has a destiny to fulfill have in common? According to Hutson’s research, underlying all these forms of magical thinking is the innate sense that everything happens for a reason. And that stems from paranoia, which is a safety mechanism.

    “We have a bias to see events as intentional, and to see objects as intentionally designed,” Hutson explained. “Part of this is because we’re always on the lookout for signs of other intentional beings — people or animals — so we tend to assume that if something happened, it was caused by an agent. If we don’t see any biological agent, like a person or animal, then we might assume that there’s some sort of invisible agent: God or the universe in general with a mind of its own. So the reason we have a bias to assume things are intentional is that typically it’s safer to spot another agent in your environment than to miss another agent.””
