Contextual Foundation & framework

This page illustrates the way that Life has led me to adapt the abstract modelling methods of information systems architects in business to develop the Method that is necessary to integrate all knowledge into a coherent whole. For these powerful methods are equally applicable in all cultures, disciplines, and industries, which is what enables the Internet to exist, interconnecting us all in the global village.

Drawing handsThe resulting Theory of Everything is a cognitive map of the Totality of Existence, as the territory being mapped. As this territory embraces all beings, it naturally includes the mapmaker, the mapmaking process, and the map itself. This is like a television camera filming itself filming, which is delightfully illustrated in M. C. Escher’s famous lithograph ‘Drawing Hands’. In other words, the observer and observer are inseparable, a unifying notion that brought Jiddu Krishnamurti and David Bohm together around 1960.

Viewing maps within the territory being mapped is a major departure from the conventions of Western thought. For instance, Albert Einstein wrote in 1931, “The belief in an external world independent of the perceiving subject is the basis of all natural science.” Similarly, at about the same time, Alfred Korzybski made the famous assertion, “A map is not the territory it represents, but, if correct, it has a similar structure to the territory, which accounts for its usefulness.”

Like everything else that is created in the manifest Universe, this first diagram illustrates the way that the Cosmic Context, Gnostic Foundation, and coordinating framework for All knowledge have emerged in the Cosmic Psyche from the Divine Origin of the Universe in the vertical dimension of time, in the Eternal Now.

All knowledge is the Unified Relationships Theory or Panosophy, whose Cosmic Foundation and framework is Integral Relational Logic, the paralogical and commonsensical science of thought and consciousness we all use everyday to form concepts and organize our ideas. At its heart lies the Principle of Unity, the fundamental law of the Cosmos, expressed most simply as the Cosmic Equation or Identity, unifying West and East.

Integral Relational Logic has evolved from the data and semantic modelling methods that information systems architects use to develop integrated business systems, illustrated in this diagram of the foundations of all knowledge, where Consciousness, as Ultimate Reality, provides both the Gnostic Foundation and Cosmic Context, unifying the incompatible contextual concepts of God and the Universe.

The following third diagram illustrates the way that these top three levels of symbolic knowledge map the Totality of Existence, with each level being contained within the one to its left. The fourth level of understanding is Gnosis, the inner knowing of the Divine, from which we are never separate, despite what religion, science, and business tell us to believe.

To explain, I view this entire structure by standing outside myself, with Self-reflective Intelligence, with what is called the Witness in some spiritual circles, rather like astronauts on the Moon, viewing the global populace on Earth as an undivided whole, beyond conflict and suffering.

To help you understand the way that these concepts emerge directly from the Source, they are ordered in a semantic table of contents, classifying the major groups and how they could change the way we humans look at our relationships to each other, to God, and the Universe.
