Evolutionism versus Creationism

Now I would like to also briefly comment on the futile argument between the „free“ natural scientist and the „unfree“ humanities scholar with obligations to the church regarding their topic of whether the world came into existence by itself – without a divine act – or whether a Creator has created it.

The fact that the church cannot hold up the bible to the scientist is something a small child in primary school already knows about.
On the other hand, hardly anyone likes the taste of having descended from the ape or even smaller creatures – even if most of the people in their narrow-minded lives base themselves on the states of consciousness of the animal kingdom, that is, on the first three.

With present-day science and the present-day use of the bible, this problem of cognition in the animals’ narrow mental bounds won’t be clarified – but it can, for the individual as well as for the world at large, by developing a higher consciousness from within which the whole situation, how everything relates here, is clearly and precisely and authentically recognizable and understandable.

In the first three states of consciousness – or, more precisely, in only two of them, that is to say in waking consciousness and dream consciousness – this entire world of men and animals is recognized as “existing” – something the smart natural scientist who lives and experiences in his narrow bounds of the first three states of consciousness will have to confess too, if he is honest.

In deep sleep the world does not exist for either of the scientist or the man of the church, because as cognizant beings, they are here both dead-like, without cognition.

Within transcendental consciousness this world is perceived as little as it is in deep sleep; you could also say it is cognized as relatively as not existing, because in this state of consciousness it has dissolved itself into nothing.

But contrary to deep sleep, that which forms the basis of this world is recognized here very clearly because the light of the cosmically unfolded intellect enlightens it.

From here one also recognizes that and how everything, which is developing and created, unfolds from nothingness – how time and space unfold from the integration of time and space and, with them, the world.
This is about an authentic experience of the cognizant person who, however, has to be with his power of cognizance at the place where he can make this experience, on the level of the transcendence or in the absolute now or in nothingness – but without loosing his power of cognition through deep sleep.

Here the person with the ability of cosmic cognition looks with the „eye of his soul“, or his intellect, through the eye of Almighty Nature into the world of the uncreated as well as of the created.
What he sees and experiences does not contradict what Darwin says – he will neither confirm it nor will he disagree with him.
He does not yet see a Creator either - who is beyond the sphere of Nature, who seemingly creates everything out of herself -, at least not in this state of consciousness and as little as in the first three states of consciousness before.

But when his neurophysiological processes develop further still, keep improving and finally even improve so much that his ability of cosmic cognition stabilizes, in other words, that his understanding has developed his ability of cosmic differentiation, then he starts with the help of his intellect to turn to the specific development of his feeling: from the level of perception beyond space and time he concentrates increasingly on improving the function of his feeling, on the ability of his feeling to perceive cosmically: on intuition. But that means he concentrates on what the “great ones” call inner revelation.

“On the path to discovery
the intellect
has little to do.
There is a leap in consciousness,
call it intuition
or whatever you like,
and the solution comes to you,
and you do not know
how and why.”
Albert Einstein

“Intuition is everything.”
Albert Einstein

“What really counts is intuition.”
Albert Einstein

With the help of his feeling, the cognizant person then finds the way from cosmic diversity, recognized by his understanding, to cosmic unity, recognized in the self.
The self reveals itself to him as a cosmic sun of enormous illuminating power, and here he notices that the light in his thinking comes from this sun, that he can see in dream consciousness but also in waking conscious only because of this light, that the light to his mental power of cognition comes from this virtual cosmic sun, whereas his mind, although shining, has no luminance of his own; his shining depends solely on his reflection of this cosmic light of the inner sun of his self. (Plato describes very well the natural order of this cosmic light relation in his famous cave allegory.)

Thus he finds that this inner life sun has its parallel in the outer life sun as correspondingly the light of his mind parallels the outer moon.
Now he also understands why, in the old times of the highly civilized cultures, sun and moon were revered so highly: On the way from cosmic consciousness to the next state of consciousness, this becomes very obvious, because the shining sun of the self resembles the outer sun, and the mind, which reflects this sunlight, is like the moon reflecting the outer sunlight.

In a later state of consciousness he will recognize that, and in what way, the inner cosmic light of sun and moon work together and open the door for him to recognize diversity in unity and/or unity in diversity as an integrated whole – depending on whether the situation is predominantly perceived by the feeling or by the understanding, both having developed the ability of cosmic perception.

Once the feeling, on the way from the fifth to the seventh state of consciousness, has developed the ability of cosmic cognition, we will be able to take up our natural point of cognition in our inner sun of life and to look at the entire world anew from this position, and/or in its light – just as before in cosmic consciousness we looked from within pure consciousness and saw the evolutionary process creating the world out of nothingness – when we had no idea yet of our inner sun of life.

„Man, know thyself,
then also the entire universe
with all its secrets will reveal itself to you.“
Inscription at the entrance of the Temple of Delphi

Already on the way of cognition to our inner sun of life, or to the “cosmic sun”, we were able to notice upon turning around that the light to our mind’s power of cognition stems from there, from our self, shining like a sun, whereas the objects structured in our mind mainly came from the influences of our neurophysiological processes.

But when we have arrived at our inner life sun via our cosmically unfolded feeling, and when our feeling has developed on this journey its ability to recognize cosmic unity, then we notice that by this the subtlety of our perception has been raised to a completely new level, and most importantly we realize that this inner life sun of ours, with its rays, which reveal themselves as our conscience, passes information on to our mind.
These rays are information carriers and when they are reflected by our mind we perceive them as consciousness and their inherent information as the most meaningful universal contents of our consciousness – messages of our selves.

Plato called these contents of our consciousness “ideas”.
