1. Just because something appears a certain way, doesn’t mean you aren’t able to misunderstand it. Humans can only know that which their brain interacts with. And even then, every state is transformed by good and bad – coherent (ideal) or stressed (entropic) because this is the behavioral form we have inherited from the life that preceded us. For us, self-other symmetry or asymmetry determines our feeling scape, which means, determines our narrative-orientation.

2. If one thinks “I hate God!”, one is thinking in religious, mythological, and narrative terms. There is no proof to such a speculation – none whatsoever. Indeed, even if you were to manifest before me a “spiritual power”, I would still assume some causal relation that necessitates the emergence of that structure/power, which would imply, of course, some connection between the human brain and the environment around it.

3. Sticking to a materialist narrative, that is, an evolutionary description of the universe, to the emergence of Earth, the biosphere, and animal life all the way up to humans, it may appear very “real” to someone that a war-with-God actually exists, as Nietzsche so histrionically discussed, largely because one ancient group of humans achieved a relationship with reality (not God) that relied upon the knowledge that existed at that time (i.e. no knowledge of evolution, or quantum physics, or relativity, or neurons, etc) and when “woven together” through a meditative poetry, produced a profoundly coherent allegory of the nature of reality, albeit, within the time-frame and social-economic-material conditions of the society this existential-metaphysical allegory emerged from.

4. Dynamical systems theory is a larger and more accurate framework than the Bible, insomuch as it is downright impossible to operate normally under conditions-of-stress. All human beings are animals, ergo, they are functionally wired via the amygdala, that is, structurally tethered to the cues in their environments so that they automatically recognize good and bad via the affects and perceptions that arise in their experience. The ancient Hebrews did not pre-exist the ancient pagans: they were co-determined phenomena. Similarly, the inheritors of the external rites, psychological dynamics and behavioral addictions that belong to todays religious world, from the “gnostic” to the “Jewish”, is co-determined, and entirely a narrative that is determined like a puzzle-piece, so that each mind “fits” into the other as a function of what is gained/lost in the symmetry that exists in the ideal.

5. Nothing is random. Everything is highly determined and ordered by a finite yet profoundly complex world of interacting-particulars. We may never know everything, but no sane person can deny that science gains real knowledge on things: an internal organization of neuronal conditions that “correlates” or “resonates” at a high level with the represented object in the environment. Internally, this is a “sign”, a percept, which inducts us into a deeper state of coherency-in-relation. Gravity exists. Cells exist, and have been observed under microscope. We know things that the ancients didn’t, and much that we’ve learned is treated by most scientific people as leading to an improvement in the human condition – such as an ability to better control diet, sleep, temperature, and stress, all of which help us feel better, which means, helps us think better and develop better narratives about reality.

6. Dreaming and channeling does not reveal any certain knowledge, yet since ancient times people have naively trusted what these “visions” show them. Todays term of “self-fulfilling prophecy” nicely coheres with the concept of a positive feedback loop, where expectancy leads to discovery of what is expected. Narratives, dreams, and the items which appear and flow therein, have a highly structured nature to them with, the affects of life, the concerns of the mind, and the anxieties about existing, become organized via the various “energies” of each attractor. Trusting in such processes may indeed be the acme of human naivety, where the stressful heaviness of reality burdens the mind with questions of “obedience to the order of being” and those who seek to flout it, work against it, and hate it. The narratives of both groups are garbled because of the mutual stress. Only the supremely removed can gain a better perspective on what is going on, hence, the idea of a “third party” to judge between two.

7. Because in all likelihood reality has an “eighth” plane, or further level of integration but at the level of psyche, dynamical processes simply incline upward to a higher area of integration, towards the place of love where the humans involved in the relation “connect” with one another. Indeed, up “here” in the so-called ‘astral realm’, the brain and its dynamics still determine the contents that the individual mind interfaces with. There is no “other world”. There is the body and the potentials for perception that it affords – nothing else. What appears here is the “story” of the group. The “monads” exist in a single space, the stronger the feeling, the deeper and clearer the relation.

8. Physical reality is BIGGER than the human being. Bacteria grow on other worlds. Activity burbles throughout the universe. But it is Earth and Earth alone which bustles with living beings, integrated with one another in such a way as to produce a “semiophere”, whereby each element is synchronized into a common ‘wave structure’, which can be fairly accurately located as the TCA cycle of the human cell - process far too tiny for the ancients to have considered – but if they had known it in all its complexities, perhaps they would have been less insane in thinking that they could change reality, given its structure is fairly consistent and logically necessary for anything meaningful or significant to exist.

9. If you persist, if you don’t stop, there is a much simpler explanation than “cursed by God”, and that is, cursed by history. On the other hand, those who steal so much from others on the premise that reality is horrible and awful merely express the dynamics of a feedback loop, with “meanings” running through from action to perception, where a completed action modifies the structure of perception. Such an analysis, informed by cognitive science and the ‘functional circle’ thought of Jacob Von Uexkull, also comes much later than the bible. The simplest explanation is that with more people working to get more knowledge, human beings widely expand their epistemological range of knowing, and with that changes much about how it is we live and exist in reality according to a very expansive ontology that accommodates people on the principle of health and unhealth, where the value of freedom to be can be enhanced, but also the responsibility not to hurt is heeded not out of guilt or any ridiculous thought about “obedience to God”, but out of it being a fact of reality – a natural fact which is so simple and basic and ubiquitous that to ignore, on the grounds that you could do better, is absolutely nightmarishly ignorant about what the modern sciences have revealed about realities remarkable structure.

10. Empirical science supersedes “mystic-knowing”. Mystic knowing is subject to all sorts of chance interactions which are too simply taken to be of “utter significance”. Interactions that are meaningful are significant, yet the way these ideas become elaborated and explored within “mystically inspired minds” far exceeds what is sane, healthy or normal from the perspective of dynamical systems. It is positive-feedback gone-haywire, where everything is believed or disbelieved depending on the exigencies of the moment. The fact of the tendentious mind, tendentiously reasoning according to a dialectic that began in nonverbal fear enactments and evolved to become complex – yet still fear based – as the adult mind began to form, and language, philosophy and cognition begins to structure the logicalities of self-states in a world-with-others. The very others we are onto-dynamically linked with.

11. The Human being is not an “adult” at 13. The Human being isn’t even an adult at 18. The Human brains metabolism appears to stabilize around ages 25-30, which seems to correlate with most people’s sense of becoming a mature, social, and emotionally regulated adult. The power of the myth, of the narrative, of the story-which-sounds-reasonable-given-what-I’ve-Once-believed – the ability to transcend the myth depends upon seeing it in the context in which it grew – and the neurological effects the psychological trauma leaves behind on brain processing dynamics.

12. Humans may exist, for all we know, throughout the cosmos. If such is the case – how wonderful, yet how dreadful, that we exist in such an isolated, confused and demented psychological state in our corner of the universe. Do we not, perhaps, seek a bigger house in which we can live? Perhaps this absence in awareness, in connection with one another, and perhaps, with a larger universe, is what underlies so much of our frustration and angst about things. Mistaken reasons for the real-causes-of-things are constant in our experience. Our task, if we have one, is to get the right reason – whether it be temperature, dietary, sleep, or exercise, stupid, mostly impersonal things exist which act upon our affective-states; yet notice how we read in the reality” of our narratives.

13. There is no home other than Earth. We need gut bacteria – we need the bacteria of earth and the other symbiotes which make us up. The Kelly brothers, astronauts who came back from space, have smaller telomeres at the end of their DNA strands, which may be a function of the stress-of-space on the energetic-molecular dynamics of zero-gravity on dynamical processes. We also need the sights and differences of the life on Earth to enliven us. We should act as Chardin recommended: we should keep up our researching and keep up our inquiry into the nature of the relationships that generate the various hues of reality. Mostly – physical reality in its immenseness remains a “final frontier” to be explored, which it surely must if human beings are to satisfy their curiosity to discover.

The 13 point of reality went obsolete once I received the message from them.All the above are nothing but spells and programs that can be avoided once you receive the code to unlock all spells and programs that embed one's self in a mortal humans dna.

The DNA is strong and will most likely pass down to every generation with out subject to change...will never change, the DNA is over whelming to time.

If matter is unconscious and the brain is matter, how could the brain possibly be conscious?

Are we assuming the brain is the source of consciousness?
