In our particular case, Consciousness Technology refers to the process of creating tools that interact with our consciousness, for the purpose of self exploration and self transformation.
It is technology, because it uses an algorithmic, methodic approach, and relies on a combination of hardware and software for practical implementation .
It resembles Art, because just like Art, it aims to inspire.
It is like Psychotherapy because it offers insights into the deeper aspects of our psyche, and supports self-development and self-transformation.
It is educational from two perspectives.
One, is that every time you interact with it, you learn something new about your self.
The other is that after a relatively short time of using it, even if you were to take away the technology, you would still be able to use the algorithms which you more or less subconsciously “learned by doing” when you were exposed to it.
There are a few user requirements in order for the technology to be effective. They are:
You are more powerful, more capable and ingenious than you thought you are. All it takes for you to get in touch with your inner resources is a change in perspective.
Usually our best power is hidden in our ‘blind spot’, or the psychological ‘shadow’. One way to tap it is by trying our Ark Journey. After befriending the shadow, try to see where in your life you could use its power in a positive way.
Instead of supporting companies to find ways to sell people more things they don’t need, why not support an informed population of individuals to find out who they are and what their life purpose is, and then support businesses to focus on creating the tools these individuals need to find out and to fulfill their life purpose.
This is what data mining and advanced pattern recognition and understanding technologies would be used for under this paradigm.
Dreams often have a much deeper meaning than assumed. The same dream image has different meanings for different people. This is why we need much more than a dream-dictionary to make sense of it.
Most of the time dreams reveal aspects of ourselves that we are not very aware of. It presents them as other people, places, or objects, like a magic mirror, where different part of our self can be interacted with and experienced.
Other times, dreams give you valuable information about situations you are confronting in life, that you may not be able to see with your day-to-day mind, but are aware of it at a deeper level.
Dreams are great tool to learn about our inner world. The dynamics of this inner world are always reflected in our everyday life.
For example, if you need to slow down a bit and rest, you may get a dream about someone being lazy. In real life, you may catch a cold. and be in bed for a few days, or something would happen that would make you stop what you are doing. Usually you get the dream first, and if you understood that your ‘wiser’ self is telling you to slow down, and you listened to the advice, then the cold, or other events may not be necessary.
But how can you get the meaning of the dream? Especially since ‘lazy’ is something bad you don’t want to identify with.
Well, the answer could be as easy as trying to find the neutral, non-judgmental idea that ‘lazy’ could represent.
This may not happen in one step, but a few, as in the following dialogue:
– What does lazy mean?
– Someone who doesn’t do things they need to do, but prefers to rest.
– So what is the less judgmental aspect of that ?
– Someone who rests.
Well, it’s not always as easy as that, you get the idea.
When one is forced to wake up, one has to go in, to get in touch with one’s true nature and life purpose.
Then one can change over night.
Ask yourself, what has real value to you?
Why did you choose to be born and come to maturity in these times?
What is specific to you that you have to offer to a world such as the one we live in?
