Integral Church launches first Virtual Circle

Integral Church


Welcome to Integral Church. 

  1. We are an interfaith circle composed of people of different beliefs, traditions and paths. We are atheist, Buddhist, Catholic, Sufi, Baha’i, Jew, Muslim, Taoist, new age mystics and universalists. We are all born into or have entered through the front door of a belief system — a view of the world, a cosmology — and we exit through the back door into the lush, shared garden courtyard of interfaith dialogue and deep religious pluralism.
  2. Our circle is interspiritual. We have different practices, prayers, songs, sacred texts and ways of making meaning. We enjoy trying these practices on to see how they feel and if they “work.” We are willing participants in the experiment of understanding Spirit (as a force or presence) and spirituality (as an attitude and line of development).
  3. Our circle is integral. We include everyone’s values, politics, ways of being and doing…

Embracing Four Quadrant Materialism: for all ages

Let’s say we are going to use the four quadrants as a heuristics. The four methods of knowing man/woman.
We start in the lower right and upper right, the finite cause and the exceptional cause, respectively. From there, we proceed to the lower left, the synthetic cause (mental), arriving finally at the infinite cause (spiritual).
This shows us the basic limits of logic (methodological causes), synthetic, or proactive logic (ontological causes), and translogic (transfinite, indeterminate nonduality).

Unconscious Regimes (Epistemes) of Spirit Qualia

That’s Spirit too
(Spirit) The spirit and intution of the infinite……..
I awaken you in the morning….
(Spirit) Vague echos of Courage, Prudence, Charity, and Faith support the meaning.

That’s Mind too
I am a collective! I am the collective evolution, no longer an unconscious mind at the service of science, bathwater religion.

That’s Body too.
I am unconsciousness as sleeping material. My heart reaks of spirit, but my head respresents a foundationalist naturalism, in perpetua. Discourse regimes en route to more anti-consumer quantology.

Goodness, Beauty and Truth

Goodness is the substantive logos, which is not only quantized, but felt. It is the umwelt, the world’s being in itself. Substantive in measure, but generative in scope. High in process, but deep in metaphorical ontology.
Beauty is depth-in-itself. Passion-in-itself. Being for being. Knowing for knowing. Intuitive science sans intuitive science.
Truth is the measure of being, the world as flux. Total mobility of meaning, with limitless flows of material process, pre-karmic and anti-cultural, anty beautific habitus.

Comprehending Communicative Networks: Netocratic Principia

Dear friends and readers of this blog, if there is such a thing as a netocracy, a world formed by networks, and their hyperreal simulation as simultaneous events of both mental signifiers and physical signifieds, then that integral netocracy must have some kind of internal logic.
Now what we have done is differentiated on a path to integrating a list of the three principles of social cognition which have validity to this network era, and science more broadly.

If you will, a type of non-abstract Principia Metamoderna discrete mathematics effort, but it is simultaneously so much more than that, if you can understand the underlying spiritual logic.

The following list is suggestive in good faith and spiritual knowledge not only for a broad science, but for a new trans-relativist Principia of the meta-moderna phase space we are now in as a transformative culture.

Netocratic Principia
1) enact spiritual (transphysically {translogically} enactivate) networks
2) prehend mental (visually (dia-logic) transcend) networks
3) nonexclude physical (communicatively (monologically) differentiate) networks.

The Standard Biden 1 2

Sanders has just suffered an upset to his front-runner status. Right now it seems that Biden will be the nominee (3/4/2020).
It also seems that the corporate state has collectively coronated him.

So what is the status of the would be political revolution of the left (not violent revolution)? This remains to be known.

Terry Patten, an Integral luminary, has suggested that Biden will lead a seemingly insurgent round-about Tea Party Left movement.

While, on another front, the political commentator ThouArtThat0, a youtube Whiteheadian neurosophist, has indicated that the fight is still on, that Bernie can upend this re-insurrection fought so hard by an entitled corporate liberal establishment.

Independently, Eric Weinstein, within hours of victory, has compared this election to a grave and surreal pathological blackhole, gnawing for our attention, and yet with every interaction bringing closer to a decreased feeling of wholeness and yet a potentially deepening apathetic withdrawal.

What is transmodernism?

We can only survive if we enjoin each other as a whole. And postmodernism has failed to offer a valid set of anti-capitalist regimes. Therefore, we need a remodernism, or a new set of enlightenment techniques. If we are to survive as a species. In the long term. If we cannot transcend postmodern critique, or even get to that stage then our planet and the enlightenment project will be doomed. Transcend and include. Remodernism, Metamodernism, Performatism All ideas that oscillate between the “ideal human” and his enslavement to post-capitalist society We must even critique the critique. You know. In the long term we are looking fucked in terms of planetary survival. The only way to match our immense technology, is an equal development of wisdom. The co-development between art, self, and technology. As well as tech and self Cultural motif, culture genetics, culture theory Because if we can include the past, instead of always focusing on ourselves then we can heal our pathology We can heal capitalism We can defeat capitalism By intersecting the art discipline with the socio-scientific. That requires intellectual growth. As well as shadow work, to heal the traumas of our cultural identity. Because post-modernism teaches us that reality is a simulacrum, which means we are creating this pluriform cultural identity. But at the same time that requires moral strength, and a anti-nihilist life-passion (as nietzsche would say), which subsumes the further fracturing.
