Alliance for Mystical Pragmatics

Alliance for Mystical Pragmatics

Harmonizing Evolutionary Convergence

Glossary Menus


We live in a world that has been at war with itself for millennia, out of touch with the most fundamental law of the Universe: in Reality, opposites, whether they be complementary or contradictory and paradoxical, are never separate. All polar pairs are two sides of one coin, including Nonduality and duality and the mystical and mundane. None of us is ever separate from Divinity, Nature, or any other being for an instant.

So when the categorizing mind splits opposites, being identified with one, rejecting the other, we become separated from Reality, from our Immortal Ground of Being, and from Presence, which is our True Nature. It is thus not surprising that Erich Fromm and J. Krishnamurti, among others, have said that we live in a sick society, diagnosed in an article titled ‘The Sane Society’, published on 9th November 2016 following the election of Donald Trump as President of the USA.

The central purpose of the Alliance for Mystical Pragmatics is thus to cocreate a global system of governance in which pairs of duals are balanced, unified, and transcended. This we call liberal social democracy, transcending political parties by balancing the needs of individuals and society, counteracting political polarization, which can only lead to disaster.

By thus harmonizing evolutionary convergence, we could bring about World Peace, transforming the seven pillars of unwisdom into the seven pillars of wisdom, realizing four fundamental principles of human existence:

  • Nondual Love is the Divine Essence that we all share.
  • Consciousness, transcending the categories, is Ultimate Reality.
  • Self-reflective Intelligence distinguishes humans from machines, like computers.
  • The creative power of Life arises from the Divine Origin of the Universe in the Eternal Now.

With these Cosmic, Divine energies, which are the driving powers behind all the Alliance’s projects, we could:

  • transform scientific materialism and mechanism into the art and science of thought and consciousness.
  • transcend religious theism and atheism in Gnosis.
  • convert conflict-ridden ‘either-or’ thinking into a harmonious ‘both-and’ way of life.

A succinct summary of this vision is contained in a 20-minute Skype talk that Paul gave on 30th September 2016 titled ‘Love, Evolution and Spiritual Renewal’ at a conference in Rome titled ‘Convergent Evolution, Attractors and Love’. Further information on the Alliance’s vision is contained in a 28-page brochure and a 100-page essay titled ‘The Art and Science of Panosophy: Evolution’s Glorious Culmination’, natural developments of the other pages, essays, and books on this website.

Panosophy has evolved from the abstract modelling methods that information systems architects use to build the transcultural Internet. Transdisciplinary Panosophy is thus the complete integration of all sciences and humanities and of science, philosophy, and religion, the solution to the ultimate problem of human learning, sometimes called the Theory of Everything.

This megasynthesis of all knowledge—as the convergence of all divergent streams of evolution, which the scientific mystic Pierre Teilhard de Chardin prophesied in The Human Phenomenon—completes the final revolution in science, presently unfolding, just as Newton’s Principia completed the first in 1687.

The publication of commonsensical works of Panosophy on this website, later in printed form, could thereby create quite a stir, releasing an abundance of energy, currently held back by millennia of cultural, mechanistic conditioning, going back before the Age of Reason and Enlightenment, the Humanist Renaissance, and the Ancient Greeks, who laid down the foundations of Western thought.

What all these pages and documents show is that the only practical way forward for humanity is through self-inquiry, following the teachings of the mystics, from the Rishis, Taoists, and the Buddha to today’s modern mystics, like Thomas Hübl, Eckhart Tolle, and Rupert Spira, and those of the depth psychologists, from Sigmund Freud, through Carl Gustav Jung, Roberto Assagioli, Erich Fromm, and Abraham Maslow, to Stansilav Grof, who has been giving many presentations this century on The Future of Psychology, since publishing a book with this title in 2000.

For it is through a Holotropic ‘Whole-transforming’ cartography of the psyche that we can cognitively map the Cosmos, answering the Big Questions of human existence, such as “Who are we?”, “Where have we come from?”, and “Where are we going?” at accelerating rates of change. Such a coherent conceptual model, together with Jung’s psychological healing practice of individuation, meaning ‘undivided’, enables evolution to become fully conscious of itself, with a comprehensive, self-reflective understanding of the psychodynamics of society.

In turn, this enables us to realize our fullest potential as a superintelligent, superconscious species, living in love, peace, and harmony at the end of time, free of the conflict and suffering that has characterized human affairs for millennia. As Stan Grof said in a recent YouTube video titled ‘The Root Cause of the Global Crisis’, such a Holotropic ‘Whole-seeking’ psychology is essential for the survival of the human species.

Furthermore, such a radical transformation of culture and consciousness is absolutely essential if we are to collectively enter the exquisitely beautiful Age of Light, free from the existential fears that can arise from the many existential risks that John Petersen, Nick Bostrom, and Martin Rees have identified at the Arlington Institute, the Future of Humanity Institute, and the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk, respectively.

Further insights into how evolution has brought us all to where we are all today as invididuals and as a species is contained on the next page The Human Situation. For it is of the utmost importance that we have some understanding of where we have come from so that we can understand better were we are all going.
