Humankindism

mathias sager awareness intelligence chapter 37

Awareness Intelligence is caring; caring for yourself, for your relations, and the common good. Working hard on something we do not sincerely care about is called stress. Genuine care comes from, by, and with love, as it does not expect anything in return. Sayings like “kill them with kindness” are expressions of aggression and have little to do with true kindness. Bad feelings against others are always hurting ourselves most. … Continue reading

Unconditional love

mathias sager awareness intelligence

Only if you see this source of love in you, you will find it in others too. Noticing others’ loving energy causes strong emotions of affection and attraction to them. The extension of empathy to all souls, whether they have the Awareness Intelligence to express it too or not, enables compassion. The compassion of the extra-past in that sense is the knowing that at the core of all human expression is the identical love that we’ve discovered in our intra-past and that we joyfully yet without attachment experience in our affectionate inter-present encounters and relationships.

Technology and the distributed intelligence of the mind

Ignorance is not bliss

mathias sager Awareness Intelligence

An oppressive manager in an organization may be a loving father of a family. A nation’s tyrant leader may be favorable for many organization’s success. A brutal xenophobic may care a lot for the wealth of the natives of his country. What appears right on one level, can be quite the opposite on another level. There is a serious issue with how people come to restrict their awareness about their social scope of care. It’s time wisely spent to learn to understand all that better. Continue reading

Mental coordinate system

mathias sager Awareness Intelligence mental socio-temporal coordinate system

The mental map of awareness uses human relations (the social dimensions) on the vertical reference line, and time (the temporal dimensions) on the horizontal axis. These are the inherently relevant aspects of human awareness. Plotted as a mental reference system, they will help to establish the socio-temporal structure that is required to focus what is relevant for the human soul. Continue reading

Hope, Living with Uncertainties, and Tolerance for Ambiguity

Summary. In the light of uncertain future threatening outcomes, present ambiguous information often is interpreted more negatively than it would be the case in a safe context. Black-and-white thinking is hindering positive deciphering of ambiguous information. People educated in open-mindedness and who have learned to tolerate ambiguity can better persevere in their tolerance even in situations of danger. Individuals’ dependencies on hierarchical power can cause closed mental systems that are … Continue reading
