Think thrice

mathias sager awareness intelligence chapter 34

Don’t judge too early, only cross the street of thought after having applied a ‘watch-listen-walk’ attitude in your decision-making. For your own and all others safety, watch the intra-past, listen to the inter-present, and walk the extra-future. Continue reading

Triadic philosophies and wisdoms

For example, the three Buddhist marks of existence, from which all human delusion and suffering purportedly stems, can be mapped to Awareness Intelligence in the following way. Overcoming suffering from the illusion of permanence can be achieved through the pre-life awareness of the intra-past, suffering itself is addressed by the inter-present that extinguishes any suffering-causing bond from relationships, and the selfless connection to humankind as a whole lies in the healing power of awareness of the extra-future.

A tripartite world that works in triplets

awareness intelligence mathias sager chapter 32

When the pursuit of personal happiness is replaced by a genuine quest for meaning, when relationships are kept free from possessive judgments and expectations, and when peace is made with all humanity at all times, one is rewarded with true happiness, freedom, and peace of mind. This is the threefold benefits from the three tenets of Awareness Intelligence. Continue reading

Trialistic harmony, not dualistic balance

mathias sager Awareness Intelligence chapter 31

If we could awareness-intelligently shift from balancing tension-laden dichotomies like ‘good and bad,’ ‘we and them,’ and ‘life and death’ towards harmonizing the three perspectives of comprehensive awareness, a new world of cooperation would replace the competitive one we live in most of the time. To re-establish harmony from a seemingly paradoxical constellation, the socio-temporal matrix can be recalled to either find the missing or new third element or to decompose and rearrange the dichotomic structure into the socio-temporal components of humantime.

Energy and the illusionary objectification of life

The law of creation: Intuition, intention, and imagination

mathias sager Awareness Intelligenc

While intuition is the messenger from and to our intra-past, imagination is the force pulling from and to the extra-future. Intention resides in the inter-present in full cooperation with others, and it is the binding element between intuition and imagination. In that sense, wholeness of awareness leads to the wholesomeness of actions. Continue reading

Physical spacelessness and spatial mentalness

The collective human delusion assumes ‘spacetime’ instead of ‘humantime’ as the fabric of the universe. I always arrive again at the conclusion that the dimensions relevant to humanity are those of how we relate to our species respectively life and how we refer to time. Therefore, our awareness should comprise the combination of social and temporal dimensions rather than the combination of space and time. Continue reading

The Extra-future

mathias sager Awareness Intelligence

The tomorrows belong mainly to those who will be there forever: that is to say the next generations. In that sense, it’s everybody’s duty as a member of the human species to be aware of life as fundamentally inter-generational. It’s time to develop the Awareness Intelligence of seeing the future through the lens of an extra-personal relationship with all humanity that carries the essence of life as a collective continuum. Continue reading

The Inter-present

The inter-present, the second Awareness Intelligence mode, is referencing the knowing about direct interactions with others in which the current moment rather than the past or future counts to avoid unhealthy relational transactionalities. Continue reading

The Intra-past

Technology and the distributed intelligence of the mind
