and Geisha: Esalen and Robert Anton Wilson
Anton Wilson has intense blue eyes. The author of the "
Illuminati Trilogy " began his discourse on recursive patterns
last night. Finnegan's Wake is just another endless loop. Synchronicity,
isomorphisms and coincidence seem to have an infinite structure.
Our minds are a mirror of nature and just as nature recycles
itself, so we recycle our symbols. Our minds belong to the ultimate
field called the " no mind. "This no mind is even
deeper than Jung's collective unconscious.
loops seem to connect seemingly unconnected things on many levels
at once. The " no mind " seems to infinitely recycle
everything long enough to generate a field of its own. Our minds
contribute the patterns and they in turn take a life of their
own. Joyce tried to create a new language or reality tunnel
in order to liberate both his mind and that of others. The Wake
seems like random noise, but it has powerful patterns lying
just underneath it.
start with the waking ego, then go to the Freudian " unconscious,
" then Jung's collective " unconscious " and
finally the no mind. Every step downward into the no mind is
reflected in Joyce's creative evolution. On and on we went into
the wake. Robert talked about the Bell theorem of non-local
causality. Connections were made through meaning, not energy.
Causality maybe actually just a special case of synchronicity.
minds can communicate non-locally by side-stepping space-time.
The non-local nature of the no mind allows this. In our dream
states, that's when everything is possible. Language is a necessary
crutch for humans. All we can do is be aware of this. Psychic
mutations generate new mind patterns and they briefly liberate
us, but life is nothing but a system of recursive patterns.
Those who have accomplished anything in the spiritual realm
know this and can often discover untapped potentials within
themselves and humankind.

INSIDE THE FIELDS:

patterns have very high frequencies of redundancy.
they get together, they generate a psychic field.

meta-level represents a different set of fields.
