Theoretical and metaphysical writer in a variety of genres and modes, drawing upon the mystery traditions and mythology as studied first by researchers and writers such as Jung, McKenna, Husserl, Merleau-Ponty, Ouspensky, Campbell (Joseph), Hofstadter (Douglas) and Guenon (Rene). The reason this information is still relevant and has continued to be through many intellectually inhospitable periods of time, is that it has taken the form of an underground stream that has been running continuously from the source, consciousness, to our present time. Information can be retrieved from the flow of this stream, that some have called virtual or holographic, although I would call it natural as opposed to artificial, the quality of the information however depends on one’s environment and state of mind. The quality of the information being only as good as the receiver.
Some of my methods are purely logical and deductive following a traditional research method, while others are more subtle and intuitional, decoding the meaning and practical application of modern artifacts (physical, linguistic, intellectual) through their inherent radiance (beauty) or truth (form).
We learn as much from our environment as we do from any other kind of knowledge or source, in fact, our environment may be the true, original source. As active participants in the phenomenology of perception, we must be aware of our influence on what we are observing when trying to achieve objective results. Patience in this process is as crucial as is attention to detail and repetition. There is a constant phenomenological dialogue going on between us and our environment through a process of projection and introjection. Projection is where we see and receive information, introjection is where we send it back, which is also like a projection where the communication is instant or near-instant; a unit of consciousness or a unit of light. We see this most clearly and obviously when observing something, but the same process can occur with our eyes shut. We receive a thought and re-introject our reaction to it, which then prompts a response, thus increasing our knowledge.
The longer we can prevent ourselves from projecting our own pre-conceived notions on what we are seeing, the closer we will get to its true form. If we are not constantly objectifying this faculty we will end up with an idiosyncratic interpretation of our surroundings which, while interesting, will not yield useful information.
