Dr. Arnold Mindell in his book Quantum Mind contrasts Consensus Reality with Non-Consensus Reality.
• Consensus Reality is something already seen and known, uncovered by experiments for instance, analysed, peer-reviewed and accepted as conventional wisdom
• Non-consensus Reality is a unique testing of whole reality at the regenerative heart from which a living dynamic can be primarily encountered and newly conceived.
In these times of rapid change, individuals, institutions and whole cultures are facing a cliff-edge where Consensus Reality is no longer adequate to hold the urgent global challenges. Global Synapses works with individual, group or collective dramas in new ways, by conceiving the regenerative heart of the living person, organisation or culture newly.
There are many forms for articulating and exploring this:
• Process Oriented Facilitation developed by Arnold Mendell in mental health; Read more
• The Permaculture Framework of design through exploring and building fruitful connection; Read more
• The WholeWorld-View giving modern form to the ancient relation to wholeness; Read more
• The Goethean methodology bridging the experience and the understanding of wholeness; Read more
These different methods and fields of inquiry come together in Global Synapses into a view of the archetypal practice of wholeness, beyond any one language or method.
Wholeness describes the experience of meeting the universal in everyday affairs. It neither reduces to the parts, as an aspect of material reality, but nor does it get lost in the high ideals of a separated spirituality. Rather wholeness presents an archetypal universal potential, as this appears through the common materialisation of the world.
Wholeness appears at the junction of grace and attention. Often one is invited into its process by “seeing” what might have seemed a chaotic and complex situation from a surprising and “whole” perspective. We are moved by an intuition, telling the whole story as if in advance of the chances we have to live to make this unity real.
The logic of reductionism into smaller and smaller elements achieved archetypal expression in the accomplishment of the atom bomb breaking down nuclei into smaller elements with huge destructive power. No value is left today when politicians or business leaders, drawing on this power of domination, makes the appeal to personal ambition as the motivation of actions.
A commitment of the soul to live its journey to light in this world so overcome by darkness reveals a complementary aspect.
Our engagement in a language of wholeness balances our separation by weighing a new conscience of who we are.
This does not come from ourselves only, but conjures the depths of the formulation of science and the destiny of experience into a higher origin of logic.
