BLOG 2021

 

In 2019 I started this blog to be able to freely digress on the various topics covered in the sections of the site, and to update my experiences on the evolutionary path of the conscious Ego. To comment, send an email to info@vitaumana.it

 

 

   THE EMOTIVE QUALITY OF EXPERIENCES (November 2021)

The conscious Ego as a sensitive experiencing subject(the conscious Ego does not record the experiences of life in a neutral way, but is involved more or less intensely by their emotional quality, ordering them according to a degree of evaluation that goes from the most painful and less pleasant ones to the most pleasant and exciting, passing through the tedium of routine; however, the involvement of the conscious Ego largely depends on the functioning of its organism and on the identification of the Ego with the psychic dynamics deriving from it)

   ENERGIES OF THE UNIVERSE (October 2021)

The psychic interpretation of cosmic energies: time(our knowledge is determined by the intellectual resources we are gifted with, but for most of the phenomena relating to the human condition – as we are not yet able to count on reliable forms of knowledge – we are forced to resort to subjective, uncertain and inadequate psychic elaborations; this applies to various energies that act on us, whose effects are still interpreted based on the immediacy of our psychic reactions: time is one of these energies)

Creativity in the Universe(the fragmentation of the energy of the original plasma in a plurality of regions that gave rise to the first generation stars marked the beginning of that process - which we interpreted in its temporal development - which led to the creation of heavier elements, up to those which allowed the formation of rocky planets, such as our Earth, within star systems; the creative process then continues also at the level of organic life, but the isolation of the worlds has prevented us until today from knowing what actually happened on the billions of planets in this universe that have favorable conditions for the development of organisms)

The condition of the Ego, the Spirit and the energy of the human psyche(when the conscious Ego, after experiencing the Spirit dimension during an NDE, is forced to return to organic life to cope with the dynamics of the human psyche, it asks itself some questions about the meaning and value of this process, not being able to transfer in this life the knowledge that it may have received in that dimension: the interpretations proposed show some particularly interesting variants with respect to the energetic dynamics of which the Spirit itself is a creative manifestation)

The effects of the Spirit's energy on the human psyche(once back in the condition of organic life, the Ego again experiences the effects of the fragmentation of consciousness and separation from the Spirit, which are however tempered by the clear memory of its spiritual experience; the fact that the Spirit's decision has imposed upon the Ego to return even in contrast with the latter's will implies however a form of separation between the Ego and the Spirit, which the Ego must take into account in dealing with the effects of the human psyche)

   THE EGO AS AN EMANATION OF THE SPIRIT (September 2021)

The Ego's function in relation to the human need for justice(the acconts of the NDEs offer us a possible interpretation of the task that the Spirit entrusts to the conscious Ego to transfer into the dimension of organic life, and above all into the human psyche, a certain amount of that love, that understanding and that solidarity that it did directly experience in the Spirit dimension; however in the dimension of this life the dynamics of the human psyche remain in effect)

The experiences in the Spirit dimension(the experiences that the Ego meets in the Spirit dimension are substantially different from those of human life; the fact that the conscious Ego is forced to re-enter its own organism, even against its will, demonstrates the presence of a higher power to which the Ego remains submitted, without being able - once back into the human dimension – to clearly remember the purposes of the plan in which it has been involved)

The Ego's trust in the Spirit(in the Spirit dimension, the Ego at last feels freed from the constraints, conditionings and the state of psychic enslavement of organic life, to which – in most cases – it no longer wants to return; however in some cases the trust in the Spirit, of which it has experienced the absolute and unconditional love, induces it to accept the mission that has been assigned to it, although knowing that once it returns to organic life it will no longer be able to count on the knowledge acquired in that dimension)

The self-confidence of the conscious Ego(facing the difficulties of life, and distancing itself from the psychic dynamics in which it is involved, the Ego becomes more and more aware of its own spiritual core; the meaning of the adventure of human life and the knowledge of the experiences which the conscious Ego can encounter when it leaves its own organism for good become accessible to it once the spiritual core has been freed from the psychic slag that envelops and hides it)

   THE RESOURCES OF THE CONSCIOUS EGO (September 2021)

The adventure of the Ego in human life(the formation and consolidation of the conscious Ego are usually determined by the events of the first phase of organic life and by the psychic reactions tuned by the brain functioning, also in relation to the programs and stimuli received; even before elaborating any form of self-consciousness, the Ego completely identifies itself with the psychic dynamics that involve it; however, over time, it finds that often the reality of events does not correspond to what the psychic attunements which it had relied on had foreseen)

The resources of intelligence(the importance of intelligence as a protection against the dynamics of the human psyche is undoubted, but unfortunately it is a resource available to the conscious Ego in a limited and unsatisfactory amount; above all, the average level of human intelligence is often inadequate to the complexity of the problems to be faced; however, the critical action of intelligence towards various psychic dynamics by which the Ego often lets itself be ensnared with naive trust, can over time generate a sort of permanent skepticism about the meaning and value of human life)

The resource represented by information on the Spirit dimension(NDEs represent an important source of information regarding the possible experiences of the conscious Ego related to the death of its organism; in our human life, however, an element of uncertainty remains about the fact that the Ego can in any case be welcomed in the Spirit dimension, since only a minority of those who have found themselves in a state of clinical death have experienced an NDE, and some NDEs consist of distressing or hellish experiences)

The conscious Ego is a resource for itself(by distinguishing itself from the psychic dynamics in which it is involved during organic life, and assiduously training its consciousness and intelligence, the conscious Ego progressively deepens the knowledge of its own essence, realizing that the role that destiny has reserved for it in this life is connected to the possibility of carrying out experiences in different dimensions, in the context of a program of which it can become the protagonist, freeing itself from the function of mere interchangeable actor to which certain cultural conditioning induced by the human psyche would like to reduce it)

   THE POWERS THAT INFLUENCE HUMAN EVENTS (August 2021)

Human events and personal experiences(human life shows itself under a double aspect: on the one hand the events determined by the behaviors and interactions of a plurality of human organisms, on the other what each conscious Ego experiences in terms of psychic dynamics in which it is involved; these two aspects are closely intertwined, given that human events determine psychic reactions almost automatically, and psychic dynamics often translate into behaviors and actions)

The life review experience(the life review, which occurs during a number of NDEs, involves an expansion of consciousness, which allows the Ego to experience the emotions and moods that its actions and words have aroused in other people, even beyond its own intentions or its ability to be aware of it; however this teaching – sometimes hard for the Ego to bear – can then be difficult to implement once one returns to the psychic dynamics of organic life)

The powers the Ego has to deal with during human life(it is simplistic and naive to believe, in the light of the teaching that can be drawn from the NDEs, that the divine Spirit can intervene in the events of human life by transforming this world into a utopian earthly paradise with the power of love; in the organic dimension, in fact, natural and psychic forces are active, endowed with effective power; the testimonies of the experiences in the Spirit dimension can however be of comfort and help for the conscious Ego in its difficult path through organic life)

The limits of the Spirit's power of intervention in human affairs(the Spirit dimension remains well separated from that of organic life, and it is not conceivable – at least at present – a direct intervention of the Spirit in human affairs, aimed to free the conscious Ego once and for good from the conflicting dynamics of the human psyche; direct interventions by entities belonging to the spiritual dimension are limited to some healings defined as miraculous and to mediumistic or paranormal events that cannot be explained in the light of the physical laws we know)

   THE CONSCIOUS EGO BETWEEN THE BODY AND THE SPIRIT (July 2021)

The awakening of the conscious Ego in the organism(the process of formation and development of the conscious Ego usually begins with the history of a new human organism, through the mental activity determined by the brain functioning, which is stimulated by the interactions between the organism and the environment or manifests itself autonomously; by experiencing the psychic events in which it is involved, the Ego also performs the function of a sensor, and can evaluate the effects that psychic dynamics exert on its evolution)

The Ego and the relationships with others(social systems create very complex interdependencies, which influence in a decisive way the processes of development of the conscious Ego; the fragmentation of consciousness into a multiplicity of organisms, each with its own resources, its weaknesses and its destiny, makes so that the conscious Ego be inevitably subject to a form of self-centeredness, for which others are perceived above all as organisms whose inner life is almost always unknown to us; not infrequently this self-centeredness is transformed into egoism, both individual and group)

The Ego and the feeling of the spirit(even in the dimension of this organic life, the conscious Ego can feel the more or less confused and uncertain call and the attraction of a spiritual existence, free from the conditioning imposed by the needs of its organism; the accounts of the NDEs on experiences in the Spirit dimension amplify this call, reinforcing in the Ego the inclination to accept the spirit guide in the hope of being able to return to that dimension to which it feels it belongs)

The development of the spiritual Ego and the near future of mankind(the increasingly widespread testimonies of NDEs validate the possibility of existence in a spiritual dimension and modify the orientation of the conscious Ego already in the course of this life; in the near future the complexity of the economic, social and environmental problems with which mankind, divided into various cultures and national states, will have to deal, will cause cultural crises, as a result of which the spiritual orientation will represent a support and a resource for the conscious Ego, without however being able to concretely contribute to the solution of the economic problems)

   STUDIES AND RESEARCH ON NDEs (June 2021)

The cultural interest aroused by the NDEs(since, in 1975, the American philosopher and physician Raymond A. Moody published his book Life After Life, using the acronym NDE to refer in particular to the subjective experiences related by people who had found themselves in critical condition, the interest in this kind of experience has become a mass cultural phenomenon)

The use of human reason in the evaluation of the NDEs(since research has been carried out to attribute some aspects of the NDEs to the effect of particular substances in the brain, and it has been hypothesized that all NDEs can be determined by the brain activity, we carefully examine whether these hypotheses can be considered sustainable, evaluating the information and knowledge currently available in the light of our human reason)

The organism's conditions and the conscious Ego(in the light of the NDEs studies, it does not seem to be any automatism between the organism's death process and the access to the Spirit dimension, especially since most of those who are brought back to life do not remember anything; however many NDEs converge on this aspect, and in any case there is an understandable and justified interest by the conscious Ego in trying to know and understand the various aspects of the experiences in which it could be involved in relation to the inevitable death of its organism)

Elements of objectivity present in many NDEs(the recurring elements present in most NDEs have led some scholars to develop a standard model of the experience which, taking into account the subjective and personal aspects present in each report, highlights what could be considered as the objective reality of the Spirit dimension, albeit with all the precautions with which the very concept of objectivity can be used in relation to experiences that remain subjective)

Frightening, distressing and hellish NDEs(a minority of experiences in which the conscious Ego is involved when its organism is in critical conditions, while presenting some similarities with positive NDEs, is characterized by negative psychic dynamics that the Ego perceives as real and from which it would like to escape; some scholars have tried to find a positive meaning for the evolution of the Ego also in these NDEs, to which however cannot be attributed the same value that the experience of being welcomed in the Spirit dimension has for the conscious Ego)

   THE SPIRIT AND THE CONSCIOUS EGO (May 2021)

The experience of the divine Spirit(although all NDEs which we get a testimony of end with the re-entry into the corporeal dimension, many of them are characterized by a timeless perception and a feeling of eternity, which in some cases manages to drive the experience up the fusion of the individuality of the conscious Ego with the divine Spirit; however, the human psyche always firmly maintains its ability to control our organic life)

The conscious Ego and its spirit(to explain the profound diversity of individual destinies and resources, and of the personal orientations of human beings, a theory of rebirths by a spiritual entity that would evolve through a cycle of lifetimes was developed in the past; in the light of what reported in many NDEs, this theory does not seem to have a concrete validation, nor is it of any use for the evolution of the conscious Ego, who at most can feel attracted to it based on certain needs imposed by the human psyche in this life)

If the Ego does not experience the Spirit dimension(we do not know for sure if every conscious Ego is destined to reach the Spirit dimension at the end of human life; the testimonies of the NDEs still concern a minority of cases of people who have suffered a cardiac arrest and then have been reanimated, and some of these experiences are interrupted before the distressing phase is resolved, and the Ego is helped to rejoin the Spirit; therefore some questions arise which we try to answer)

Experiences with psychedelic drugs(the interest aroused by NDEs has led some researchers to investigate the similarities between the experiences induced by the intake of psychedelics – in particular ketamine and DMT – and the most characteristic aspects of the NDEs, with the aim of being able to identify a possible biochemical basis for the latter; although this possibility should not be excluded, one has the impression that these researches are lacking in terms of a thorough knowledge of the NDEs – particularly those that occur when the organism is in a critical condition – and sometimes want to come to hasty conclusions)

   DEITIES AND MYTHS (April 2021)

Psychic experiences and their interpretation(the involvement of the Ego in its own psychic dynamics allows it to experience both the satisfaction and enthusiasm for success, as well as the disappointment and negative consequences of failure; the interpretative elaboration of these mental states and their effects has often led the conscious Ego to consider some psychic dynamics – even at a cultural level – as manifestations of the power of personalized divine entities)

The psyche's bipolarity and the conflicts between deities(for a long time the power of involvement and subjugation towards the conscious Ego by the psychic dynamics has been interpreted as a manifestation of the existence of a plurality of divine entities, endowed with resources that the Ego does not normally have; the intrinsic conflictuality in the human psyche was explained in the light of the clashes between the various divinities present inside a pàntheon, or – in the case of monotheism – it could exteriorize in religion wars)

The liberation of the conscious Ego and the discovery of the afterlife(already in the course of this life it is possible for the conscious Ego to undertake a path of liberation from its identification with the dynamics of involvement and submission typical of the human psyche; the thousands of testimonies of NDEs that we have today also show that the conscious Ego can access – once this life is over – a dimension marked by completely different psychic experiences, in tune with its truest essence)

The nexus between human life and the Spirit dimension(NDEs, as phenomena experienced as subjectively real, can be considered as facts that offer us information on the possible experiences that await the conscious Ego once human life is over; in the light of these experiences, one can search to establish an interpretative link between the meaning and purpose of human life, lived as a series of temporal events, and the Spirit dimension, to which the Ego feels it belongs and from which it would no longer want to come back to organic life)

   THE MYSTERY OF HUMAN LIFE (April 2021)

The mental desire to know(the need to know the meaning and purpose of human life, also in relation to the very different conditions that destiny determines for each of us, is felt by many human beings, but not by everybody in the same way; a few centuries ago the human psyche determined a more intense desire to know, enticing humans with the prospect of being able to acquire greater control over their own destiny: up to now, this attempt has been only partially successful)

The identity of the conscious Ego(in considering the Ego as the subject who, through consciousness, experiences the different aspects of the psyche, recording them at least temporarily in its memory, it is appropriate to keep in mind that some psychic experiences are not received directly by the Ego in the waking state, but by a subject that shows peculiar features in the way of perceiving and interpreting such experiences: thus, for example, the dream Ego can experience the psychic events of dreams in a different way from that with which the Ego in the waking state then interprets the contents of the dreams it can remember)

Life as a research and processing of experiences(while taking into account the particular destiny that determines the life experiences of each person – and therefore does not allow any generalization – human life nevertheless represents an opportunity offered to the conscious Ego to form and consolidate itself through the psychic experiences in which it is involved, and to progressively evolve until it is ready to get rid of the now useless shell of an organism that has exhausted its energies and resources, so as to be able to go towards new forms of existence)

   THE INSTRUMENTS THAT ALLOW THE EXISTENCE OF THE CONSCIOUS EGO (March 2021)

The mental ascertainment of a reality(through mental activity the Ego becomes aware of the existence of an objective reality that transcends it, and the mind itself becomes a no less important aspect of reality: a strictly monistic interpretation of the brain-system cannot be satisfactory from a cognitive point of view, since within it the subject and the object of the investigation are made to coincide)

The memory issue(Our memories are all the more reliable the more they are vivid, well impressed in our memory and traceable to a specific period of our life, and they are in any case determined by the functioning of our brain, which can also make us perceive as authentic memories episodes created through imagination; however, there are well documented and ascertained cases of children who accurately remember events, people and places belonging to the memory of another deceased adult person)

Mind and brain(the data obtained from investigations on brain activity are always interpreted by the mental activity of the researchers: attributing this activity exclusively to the brain of those people involves a paradox, since the subject and the object of knowledge coincide; moreover, the variety of individual psychic experiences is so wide as to make the reduction of brain functioning to a standardized model arbitrary and unreliable; the problems relating to the functioning of the human mind are therefore far from being solved)

The conscious Ego and the Spirit dimension(the Spirit dimension consists of psychic attunements substantially different from those of the human psyche, which the conscious Ego can experience in certain situations, as evidenced by the reports of many NDEs: the conscious Ego feels attracted and fascinated by that dimension, perceived as consonant with its most authentic essence, to the point of no longer wanting to return to the condition of organic life)

The vehicle of consciousness(NDEs show that in certain circumstances the conscious Ego can experience alternative psychic attunements to those typical of the human psyche; given that we do not have reliable knowledge about the brain functioning in such circumstances, the existence of an alternative vehicle of conscious tuning that can come into operation when the organism is in critical conditions cannot be ruled out; otherwise we should recognize that the brain is much more than an evolutionary tool aimed exclusively at the natural needs of the organism or the species)

   THE HOPES FOR A FORM OF EXISTENCE AFTER DEATH (February 2021)

The end of human life(the life we live in this world, through an organism in which the conscious Ego develops and through which it elaborates its own experiences of the psyche, ends with the event of death, which coincides with the definitive stop of the functioning of the nervous system – and in particular of the brain – of the organism with which the conscious Ego is associated; testimonies referring to experiences in possibly deadly situations vary from person to person, and in some cases are very different from what one would expect)

The imaginary representations of the afterlife(the sense of loss and pain resulting from the death of a person of whom one is emotionally very fond can find comfort in the confirmation of the continuation of the existence of the personality - with their memories and human bonds - in a dimension in which it feels happy, in harmony with the aspirations of the conscious Ego; it cannot be excluded that this desired condition could not correspond to a subjective form of reality, once a different range of psychic experiences can be tuned)

Other forms of psychic experience referred to the afterlife(some NDEs show two interesting aspects: the detachment from the physical body – with the fading of any painful sensation and the vision of people and events still linked to the human environment – and the transfer to a different dimension often characterized by the presence of luminous entities that radiate sympathy and unconditional love; the attribution of these experiences to the functioning of the brain implies the ability of the same to tune in also alternative realities)

The Ego, its desires and will(the desires that involve the Ego and commit its will during this life are determined by the human psyche, and have the function of binding the conscious Ego to the life of its organism and the cultural programs transmitted to it; many NDEs present a completely different perspective, in which the psychic tunings experienced by the conscious Ego are no longer characterized by desires of human origin)

The formation of the conscious Ego(the random factors that determine the fate of every human organism also influence the development of the conscious Ego, who in many cases proceeds along the path of life, taking part not only in the enigmatic progress of mankind's history, but also in its own individual evolution process, on the meaning and outcome of which NDEs could offer us useful clues)

   LIFE AND CONSCIOUSNESS (February 2021)

The process of development of life on Earth(the study of the evolution of organic life on our planet is very interesting, but it relies on a reconstruction that - however accurate and reasonable - is still based on the deductive, intuitive and even imaginative faculties of our mind, and in part on the direct observation and study of currently living organisms; for over two billion years the framework of life has seen a multitude of unicellular organisms interacting with each other and with the environment, based on the operational programs contained within each of them)

The development of an operational control center(the appearance of an operational control center, consisting of a nervous system and cerebral ganglia, in the course of the evolution of multicellular animals, does not in itself imply the presence of a conscious subject, since most of the brain functions operate in an unconscious way; furthermore, other evolved organisms, such as higher plants, although lacking a nervous system, are able to manage the complexity of their functioning; consciousness, as we humans experience it, essentially serves to connect the Ego with the psyche's dynamics)

The different levels of conscious experience(although it can be presumed that consciousness has its roots already in the animal world, its function – as we experience it – consists in putting the Ego in contact with the dynamics of the human psyche; it is an evolutionary process that manifests itself at different levels, from the completely passive ones of children to those mediated by the acquired cultural programs and by the previous experiences of young people and adults; however, the identification of the conscious Ego with the positive or negative psychic tunings that involve it usually lasts for a lifetime)

The psyche's bipolar character(the intrinsic bipolarity of the human psyche can be experienced by the Ego as a transition path between a past - or a present - marked by negativity, and a better future; what can be hoped for the future of mankind is a reduction of tension between the two poles, but not the elimination of bipolarity; on the other hand, the limited duration of the life of each human organism, temporarily inserted in this collective flow of the psyche, involves the aspiration by the conscious Ego to a form of non-evanescent existence)

   THE CREATIVE AND ORGANIZATIONAL POWER OF HUMAN PSYCHE (January 2021)

Tecnological progress(in the last two centuries, humanity has witnessed an extraordinary process of increasing technological complexity of the products created, a progress to which today we are almost completely accustomed, but which has been made possible thanks to a rapid evolution in the creative and organizational faculties of the human psyche)

Why resort to the human psyche?(through consciousness, the Ego experiences for a very limited time the effects of a process of cultural transformation that uses, to all intents and purposes, the resources available to humans to pursue a goal that remains mysterious to us; observing the transformations occurred over time, from the primordial natural dynamics to the current complex cultures, we can note that in certain periods – such as the current one – there is an intensification of psychic activity that leads to remarkable changes)

Human commitment(the productive activities that have led to the astonishing technological progress of our age have required an enormous use of human energy, leaving very little of it available to the Ego for the evolution of its own consciousness; even recreational and leisure activities, partly necessary to recharge batteries, often involve a further waste of energy, and are stimulated by the cultural system for the same purposes imposed by the conditioning programs determined by the collective psyche)

The progress of mankind and the Ego's evolution(active participation in the productive processes that contribute to orienting the future of mankind is determined by the psychic tunings that involve the Ego since youth; however, in the second half of life the conscious Ego should undertake a path of separation from the collective psychic dynamics, given that its participation in the process of human evolution is limited to a relatively short period of time, and in the final part of its life it will also have to face the inevitable deterioration of its psychophysical system)
