Some Backround

I decided to create a category separate from Shamanism because it seems this research/concept is less of prototypical indigenous alchemy, and more the bridge between psychology and science. Though i tend to see 'The Work' all one in the same, I believe it's necessary to have format bridges, until the fateful day when we have a grand unified theory, or a least a conceptual reconciliation in our little-big niche.

I believe Lilly (to a lesser extent Leary), lent some good ground work for incorporating The Work into rational meta chunks -that is, the building blocks for which we can speak on these non-ordinary places/states/reactions, to those who might have a terminology-format bias, (which I think we've all run into once or twice), thus necessitating a coherent and rational language. Also, this language, and his rational descriptions of the odd bits of reality, also lend to an ease of reconciliation with the accepted sciences.

I feel that individuals involved in shamanism would beg to differ with ideas relating to a belief that shamanism is a bridge between psychology and science. Individuals involved in shamanism believe that they are creating a bridge between physical and non-physical realities, or non-ordinary states of consciousness. Whether this belief is founded in truth is not important. It is another belief system that individuals will undoubtedly work themselves out of or not.

i very much appreciate this group. It is approaching more to the guts of things unseen and realized but not spoken of until now. The bridges concept is interesting to me - as "the work" seems to follow along lines of awareness and dropping systems of belief to allow freedom for flow.
As in the bridge of : EART H EART. Really, until an individual learns to follow the inner heart through love of self and then love of others, nothing is revealed to them, since the discovery of other realities, without self-awareness and self-love becomes too much of a risk for not only the individual but for others also.

Language is a funny thing. I have developed an understanding about terminology-format bias - since language can be a very difficult vehicle to translate experiences that cannot be explained within symbolic codes.
I chuckled when i read this since this found of place within me of experience - and sometimes my lack of correct language got me kicked out of groups.

Thank-you for this group.
Much love to all,

The Cosmic Control Center

Beyond and above in the control hierarchy, the position of this single administrative Self MetaProgrammer and his staff, there may be other controls and controllers, which, for convenience, I call supraself metaprograms. These are many or one depending on current states of consciousness in the single Self MetaProgrammer. These may be personified as if entities, treated as if a network for information transfer, or realized as if self traveling in the Universe to strange lands or dimensions or spaces. If one does a further unification operation on these supraself metaprograms, one may arrive at a concept labeled God, the Creator, the Starmaker, or whatever. At times we are tempted to pull together apparently independent supraself sources as if one. I am not sure that we are quite ready to do this supraself unification operation and have the result correspond fully to an objective reality.

"In ones life there can be peculiarly appropriate chains of related events that lead to consequences that are strongly desired. After such experiences, one wonders how such a series of events developed; sometimes there is a strong feeling that some intelligence (greater than ours) directed the course along certain lines which It/He/She was/is programming. Several years ago, I enunsiated a format for such concatenations of events, somewhat

"There exists a Cosmic Control Center (C.C.C.) with a Galactic substation called Galactic Coincidence Control (G.C.C.). Within which is the Solar System Control Unit (S.S.C.U.), within which is the Earth Coincidence Control Office (E.C.C.O.). The assignments of responsiblities from the top to the bottom of this system of control is by a set of regulations, which translated by E.C.C.O. for humans is somewhat as follows:"

To all humans: If you wish to control coincidences in your own life on the planet Earth, we will cooperate and determine those coincidences for you under the following conditions:

If you wish to control coincidence in your life on the planet Earth, we will cooperate and determine those coincidences for you under the following conditions:

* You must know/ assume/ simulate/ our existence in ECCO.

* You must be willing to accept our responsibility for control of your

* You must exert your best capabilities for your survival programs
and your own development as an advanced member of ECCO's earth
side corps of controlled coincidence workers. You are expected to
use your best intelligence in this service.

* You are expected to expect the unexpected every minute every
hour of every day and of every night.

* You must be able to remain conscious/ thinking/ reasoning no
matter what events we arrange to happen to you. Some of these
events will seem cataclysmic/ catastrophic/ overwhelming:
Remember, stay aware, no matter what happens/ apparently-
happens to you.

* You are in our training program for life: there is no escape from it.
We (not you) control the long-term coincidences; You (not We)
control the short-term coincidences by your own efforts.

* Your major mission on Earth is to discover/ create that which we
do to not control the long term coincidence patterns; you are being
trained on Earth to do this job.

* When your mission on planet Earth is completed, You will no longer
be required to remain/ return there.

* Remember the motto passed to us(from GCC via SSCU): "Cosmic
love is absolutely Ruthless and Highly Indifferent: it teaches its
lessons whether you like/ dislike them or not."

"In the province of the mind, what the mind believes to be true, either is true or becomes true within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the mind there are no limits. "


Program: a set of internally consistent instructions for the computation of signals, the formations of information, the storage of both, the preparation of messages, the logical processes to be used, the selection processes, and the storage addresses all occurring within a biocomputer, a brain.

Metaprogram: a set of instructions, descriptions, and means for control of sets of programs.

Self/Self-Metaprogramer: a special metaprogram which involves the self-programming aspects of the computer, which creates new programs, revises old programs, and reorganizes programs and metaprograms. This entity works only directly on the metaprograms, not the programs themselves; metaprograms work on each program and the detailed instructions therein.

"The concepts of something greater then human operating in one's life is presented.

The tern "Transpersonal" means something beyond the human unique ego Self.
I introduced the term "Supraself" as covering those experiences in which the Self listens to, is taught by and is immersed in inner realities- beyond those of the Self functioning in the external reality or in its own internal reality.
In a description of the operational domains of the realities available to humans, I have written of the external reality and the internal reality. I have in the last two years added a third domain, the extraterrestrial reality. These realities are defined as follows:
In the ordinary everyday consensus external reality, the Self functions mainly at the boundary between internal reality and external reality. The operations of the body are considered to be in the external reality, the operations of the mind in the internal reality. The Self metaprogramer functions in the internal reality and uses the body in the external reality.

In the Isolation Tank, the external reality is attenuated to the point where clues as to the existence of the external reality and immerses itself in the internal reality. The Self MetaProgramer immersed in the internal reality then can have "Transpersonal" or supraself experiences.
The supraself is considered as an autonomous metaprogrammer: in addition, the supraself metaprogramer can be seen to program the Self/Metaprogramer in such a way as to move it into the extraterrestrial reality. (In less precise older language: "The Self can imagine and live in nonordinary realities, created in the mind.")
The supraself metaprograms and the supraself can be detected as functioning when the Self/metaprogrammer is functioning with respect to the external reality or to the internal reality. The transition to the extraterrestrial reality is experienced when the Self/metaprogramer gives up or allows the supraself/metaprogramer to take over and program the Self. In the farther reaches of the extraterrestrial reality the Self loses its identity and becomes the supraself/metaprogramer. In most people this process of allowing or of identifying with the supraself metaprograms is apparently not experienced as frequently as the immersion of the Self metaprogramer within the internal reality. The experiences are said to become transpersonal or beyond the Self when the actual identification or Self with the supraself occurs.

These terms are operational, that is they are used in mapping descriptions of real experiences. They are not dogmatic doctrine to be followed. These concepts are aids in describing experiences. Once one has such experiences and examines them, the concepts can be used to create new experiences. The language, originally descriptive, becomes injunctive or directive.
In ordinary everyday life one can feel the operation of the supraself, the supraself metaprogramming directing one in a subtle unconscious way. Once one has had experiences of identification with the supraself, these daily operations become more and more conscious, i.e., supraself metaprogramming becomes part of everyday ordinary life to a much greater extent in the conscious sphere then it is in, say childhood. Advanced consciousness, in the way that we are using the term, develops throughout one's life as one begins to make distinctions of the above sorts.
My own experiences necessitated the development of this terminology in order to be able to talk about it and to teach what I have learned in these regions. The three domains (external, internal, and extraterrestrial) do not define all the phenomena capable of being experienced. There are domains beyond the extraterrestrial reality. After the fusion of Self with the supraself and can go still further. At this point one loses one's identity totally and becomes "all others" in the universe. One joins with the network of Creators in which the individual Self fuses with the network of those who are doing the creation continuously at very high levels. Here there is no more of one's Self or of one's supraself. One is the ultimate creative process. This region I symbolize by the Network. "
