In most of today’s scientific research, I find it still difficult to see how the link between the universe and human psychology is made. In the context of understanding life and its signification for human existence overall, some dots undoubtedly remain unconnected. It is overdue to think more and in different ways about how we develop and use awareness.
The widespread use of the Internet, mobile devices, and social media represents a significant opportunity for researchers, known as the trend of computational social science as named by Popov, Gosling, Kosinski, Matz, and Stillwell (2015), but also comes with ethical challenges (Drotar, 2011).
Characteristics of social behavior Social psychology is studying a wide range of complex social behavior regarding, e.g., aggression, attitudes, attribution, gender roles, group processes, health and helping behavior, intergroup relations, leadership and motivation, personality, relationships, and social influences (Richard, Bond, and Stokes-Zoota, 2003), just to name a few. It is key that “Humans are a … Continue reading Evaluation of social psychology as a science

Tunnel view on life Single-mindedness is praised and rewarded everywhere in science as well as in business and private matters. If integrating more aspects of life into one’s lifestyle, one is considered unfocused and not knowing what he/she wants. People typically educate and develop in clearly predefined, straight career paths, and socially common and therefore … Continue reading A Universalist’s Perspective
You get an understanding and compassionate ear here, but the most significant benefit lies in permitting me to offend you. First of all, if I didn’t dare to offend, I couldn’t be honest.

Comprehensive awareness is like the capturing of light, which is our soul’s essential yearning. Life wants to reveal itself to us. Even if we close our eyes, some light is shining through the lids. The clouds are not a part of the sky. It’s never completely dark; there is always radiating vividness. To see clearly, … Continue reading We can photograph the outer world, but our inward view has to be painted.
In 2016, Jim Haber published the ground-breaking DNA research ‘The rule of three’ revealing that nature, respectively DNA when it repairs itself, is likely working in a tripartite structure.

To become a real leader is founded on mastering self-leadership and on being at peace with oneself and the world. For being able to serve as a role model, one has to be ready to give up his or her title and position. Too dissonant can a professional identity become with the aware self. How could one ever enjoy people who admire rather their title-based authority and social status rather than knowing about their creativity, vulnerability, and loving character in the first place?
Doctor’s don’t heal you, healing occurs within yourself. If life can create new bodies and souls, why shouldn’t it be able to heal the same? You will find everything you need in life if you serve it by helping all humanity that comes and goes. The assertive expression of your legitimate desires and quitting temporal states, spaces, and dependencies that are awareness-unintelligent is unavoidable to remove what is inhibiting the wholesome life in humantime that is available to you too.
It can be argued that there are three basic human needs. First is safety, for which you need to re-connect to your intra-past, your safe source that is always yours. Second, if your soul’s need to meet other souls in the inter-presence is met, deep satisfaction ensues. And third, the need for connection can be met through connecting to all humankind in the extra-future.

Recognize how important you are. Every dream for a better world, every creative act, and even a seemingly naive idea can inspire and provide the courage to break out of the cage of limited knowing. It’s about what you can do in your mind. It’s not compliance, but bold responsibility that nurtures your, others, and all humankind’s Awareness Intelligence. What else could be more worth to realize?! I, for my part, rather want to have tried.
I agree with researchers whose opinion is that “Consciousness is not something the brain achieves on its own. Consciousness requires the joint operation of brain, body, and world”. Because I have risen the question of what is animating life, e.g., as driving force for birth and the aging process, as a possible route to get … Continue reading Brain, Body, and World
