AXIS OF ALIGNMENT

THE INTEGRAL HYPOTHESIS

This explanation is an interpretation of classical "mystical geometry" defined in words, and illustrated as best we can.

We are suggesting the existence of a common "axis of alignment" or plumb line capable of drawing the entire world -- all individual people, all groups and organizations and councils of people -- and all ideas and intellectual conceptions and distinctions -- into a single converging framework that shares a common center-point organized along a spectrum defining levels of scale.

This spectrum is defined from the local to the global, from the individual human being to the Absolute One, from the infinitesimal to the infinite, from the empirical to the abstract, from the different to the similar to the identical.

This axis manifests in individual human beings as the alignment of their "chakras", and as a corrective influence on the truth of any conceptualization at an individual or collective level.

The page begins with the affirmations of two prophets of this vision, one arising within the ancient indigenous tradition, and the other as a highly educated and trained european intellectual.

They both affirm absolute center, and they both affirm the deep connection of all people to one another through that center.

This project is about the collective realization and affirmation of this center, and what it would mean to converge all of society towards this common point and axis.

And - design note: maybe we need to group the "types" of imagery on this page: we have circle models and axis models. How are they connected? We should show them in sequence

BLACK ELK

"At the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit.
And that center is really everywhere.
It is within each of us."



"I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world.

And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.

"And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father.

"And I saw that it was holy."

PIERRE TEILHARD DE CHARDIN

"Prophet, seer and visionary, scientist, philosopher, mystic, graced champion, a visionary prophet of the convergence, coined the term noosphere, wrote about the Omega Point, towards which all the universe is being drawn, lover of life, divine in vision, follower of Christ,

He told us that one day, all things shall come together, in the great convergence, infinite beauty"

"Because there exists in all beings a common centre, scattered and separable though they are in appearance, they meet together at a deeper level. The more they perfect themselves, the more they come together and fuse into one, within the single, unifying Centre to which they aspire.
The Wikipedia God page is an awesome introduction to the philosophy of religion

Is this "monad" as Wikipedia describes it the same thing as "the whole hoop of the world" as envisioned by Black Elk?

Is the vision of circle an ultimate container of all things?

Is circle the ultimate or best or most true way to order the energies and relational dynamics of community"

Could this be what is meant when Berkana Institute says "Whatever the problem, community is the answer"?

We can parse all of human undersanding and all sector of exerience through this wheel. Yes, it is a mandala, a metaohor for wholeness and inclusion -- but we can also understand it as a "a universal taxonomy of categories" -- like a card catreglog system in a library. We can find everythng wthin a single framework.

The Absolute Container -- the Whole, the One, the top level

One, Logos, Christ, Ground of Being, universal ontology, container of all duality, container of all categories, container of all logic, container of all opposites and dimensions, unified field of absolute wholeness, guidance to all ethics
