‘Basics of the Science of Mind: The Twelve Branches of the Tree of Knowledge’ (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 18) by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Basics of the Science of Mind: The Twelve Branches of the Tree of Knowledge’ (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 18) is a scholarly article that demonstrates how our science could look like if it was really holistic and integrative. The ‘Science of Mind’ is an idea propagated by New Thought authors who have explored the frontiers of science comparing it with the ancient knowledge base of the Hermetic Tradition.
The author has retraced the boundaries of such an all-encompassing and integrative science and found an astonishing parallel to the ancient idea of a ‘Tree of Knowledge’ that has got twelve branches, which are:
—Science and Divination
—Science and Energy
—Science and Flow
—Science and Gestalt
—Science and Intent
—Science and Intuition
—Science and Knowledge
—Science and Pattern
—Science and Perception
—Science and Philosophy
—Science and Truth
—Science and Vibration
The article comes with many references from science books and with a complete Bibliography.
‘Basics of Feng Shui: The Art and Science of Sensing the Energies’ (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 11), by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Basics of Feng Shui: The Art and Science of Sensing the Energies’ (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 11) is an introduction into a perennial science that originated from the ancient Chinese practice of arrangement of space which is claimed to achieve harmony with the environment.
There is scientific evidence now that Feng Shui is effective and not just a belief system, as astrology is not a belief system. Feng Shui is a science of the bioenergy and perhaps the oldest distillation of this holistic knowledge.
While Feng Shui is practiced as a business in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, for the construction of houses and offices, it has to be seen that this is only the pragmatic branch of a larger body of science that really deals with all living and how human beings relate to the greater realms of plants, animals, water, rivers, mountains, and generally to the cosmos.
Systems theory now reveals our total interconnectedness, however, the Chinese knew this more than five thousand years ago. Feng Shui is one of many manifestations of this age-old holistic knowledge about the connective patterns between humanity and the whole of the cosmos.
The illustrated book comes with a Glossary and a complete Bibliography.
‘The Mythology of Narcissism: Pathology of the Consumer Age (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 13) by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘The Mythology of Narcissism: Pathology of the Consumer Age (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 13)’ is a scholarly article both for neophytes and professionals on the subject of narcissism, a recognized psychiatric pathology or disorder that the author identifies, for various reasons, as typically related to our modern consumer culture.
The author first identifies the typical symptoms and the overall behavior pattern of persons who suffer from narcissistic wounds. In this context, the author also informs about common misperceptions of this disorder and is outspoken about the true etiology, which is a lack of self-love that is caused by severe wounding early in childhood and youth.
This wounding if often the result of parent-child codependence and emotional abuse, and a stringent lack of autonomy early in life.
The author then reviews an important work on the etiology of narcissism, published by Thomas More (Care of the Soul, 1994) that sees the healing of the narcissistic wounding in caring for the soul, and developing one’s soul values instead of ‘playing’ a comedy for pleasing others, thereby avoiding access to one’s true self.
The articles comes with a comprehensive Bibliography.
‘The Ego Matter: About the Importance of Autonomy for Realizing Your True Self (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 7)’ by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘The Ego Matter: About the Importance of Autonomy for Realizing Your True Self (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 7)’ is an extensive personal guide manual helping the reader to become aware of their unique soul values. The author came to call our unique power potential primary power or self-power at first, before he introduced the term soul power. The guide not only explains what soul power is, how it can be developed and strengthened, but also what stands in the way to developing it. The author explains that the main obstacle to developing soul power is parent-child codependence and emotional abuse, that the author sees as a form of addiction and which he calls symbiotoholism.
After more than twenty years of research on emotional abuse, the author sees the primary etiology of parent-child emotional entanglement, and the fusional entanglement of people with groups and organizations in lacking tactile care of mothers for their infants, and later on, the refusal to grant adolescents a sufficient amount of autonomy to develop their psychosexual love map and gather emosexual experience.
When we grasp the notion of autonomy, we see that all human growth has a destination—and that is why we say we have a destiny. The destination of youth is not to remain young, but to grow old. The destiny of a child is not to remain in childhood but to grow out of childhood.
Building soul power requires to discover one’s self, to build a genuine identity. The author shows that building a genuine soul identity is done through discovering our innocence, realizing our primary power, developing our soul reality, accepting our marginality instead of striving for conformity, recovering and healing our inner child, discovering and integrating our shadow, and our projections, and learning to see that a holographic image of the whole of mythology and human evolution is contained in our soul.
As the topic of individuation is highly neglected in our school system and is neither a topic to be taught at university, and as in addition the notion of soul and soul values doesn’t really fit in a materialistic and non-spiritual society, there is an obvious need for a mind-opening approach to personal growth that is provided with this guide.
‘Wilhelm Reich and the Function of the Orgasm’ (Great Minds Series, Vol. 11), by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Wilhelm Reich and the Function of the Orgasm’ (Great Minds Series, Vol. 11) is a study about one of the greatest authorities on the discovery of the bioenergy for modern science and medical science.
The author understands his engagement for Reich as a contribution to the rehabilitation of one of the greatest, but also one of the most misunderstood scientists of the 20th century.
Reich’s Greatest Discoveries is a science essay about Wilhelm Reich’s unique orgone research, a new branch of science that at present gains importance because it has shown us ways out of the ecological impasse.
Wilhelm Reich, as early as in 1945, achieved complete healing of a female schizophrenic patient using bioenergetic or, as Reich termed it, orgonotic treatment.
Many know about the ground-breaking work of Ronald David Laing regarding the alternative treatment of schizophrenia. However, small is the number of individuals who have noticed that Wilhelm Reich’s research and mental health treatment approach by far preceded those much more well-known and acclaimed methods.
In fact, Reich achieved remarkable results with simply redirecting the patient’s orgonotic energy flow which has revolutionized the treatment of schizophrenia.
The book comes with a bonus essay about Reich in German language as well as a review of Michel Odent’s book ‘The Functions of the Orgasms (2009).’
Emotional Flow: A Holistic Approach to Healing Sadism (Essays on Law, Policy and Psychiatry, Vol. 3, 2018) by Peter Fritz Walter.
Emotional Flow: A Holistic Approach to Healing Sadism (Essays on Law, Policy and Psychiatry, Vol. 3, 2018) is both a science and a self-help essay that presents a non-moralistic, functional and bioenergetic regard on emotions, sexuality, sexual paraphilias and sexual crime that asserts the importance of the flowing, ethereal and self-regulatory nature of our emotions.
This regard, and the healing solutions the author is offering as a result, are the outcome of a long-term study of human emotions that started back in 1985 as a forensic analysis of sexual crime against children. It was later enriched and expanded through the larger context of his studies of alternative medicine, the I Ching, flow principles in nature, vibrational medicine, sound healing, and perennial science traditions from both the East and the West.
The essay is not only informatory for a large array of possible readers that includes forensic psychiatry, law enforcement officials, educators, nurses and law policy makers; it is also destined, as a self-help guide, to assist the individual reader in assessing their own emotional and sexual distortions, and profit from some of the techniques offered for healing them.
The main concern of the guide is to show new holistic ways of coping with sadism, and particularly sexual sadism, acted out either toward adults or toward children. The approach taken is non-judgmental and functional, not moralistic, and it emphasizes a bioenergetic point of departure.
The book informs about the true reasons for violent emotional and sexual afflictions and resulting misconduct, and offers viable alternatives to chaotic sexual behavior in the form of empathic advice, and suggestions for behavior adjustment, not through putting up self-punishment and guilt, but in the contrary through understanding the energy-nature and inherent intelligence in our emotions.
From a policy perspective, the way to go, as the book shows, is quite exactly the contrary of what is practiced now by our law makers and social policy makers; it’s the way toward solving the blockage by dissolving the energy obstruction that led to the blockage. This energy obstruction, as the book shows with many examples, is related to distortions of perception, and a lack of emotional awareness.
‘Sane Child vs. Insane Society: Some Thoughts on Education’ (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 17, by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Sane Child vs. Insane Society: Some Thoughts on Education’ is a scholarly article which contends that children are born sane and are rendered more or less insane by an educational system that till now considers the human being as the impossible human, that is, a creature that is basically faulty and has to be improved and upgraded by education, and morality.
The present view opposes this age-old educational paradigm and shows that traditional education brings about fragmentation, ignorance and widespread violence.
The article emphasizes the natural integrity and wholeness of the small child, who is by nature a systems thinker. The article is a shortened version of the author’s book ‘Creative-C Learning: The Innovative Kindergarten’ (2015/2017) in which the author emphasizes the need for teaching emotional awareness to teachers and presents techniques to be applied in the vocational training for early child care workers and pre-school teachers that teach how to cope with stress, and that show the details of the trust-building process both between teachers and students and between parents and teachers.
The audience for this article are all those involved in educating children, as well as educational policy makers, also parents, educational associations, politicians, pediatricians and child psychologists, and also the lay public, especially those who are looking for a new way to educate children now and in the future.
Terence McKenna and Ethnopharmacology’ (Great Minds Series, Vol. 8), by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Terence McKenna and Ethnopharmacology’ (Great Minds Series, Vol. 8) is a study that features one of the most famous ‘psychedelic’ philosophers of our time.
Terence McKenna (1946—2000) has been studying the ontological foundations of shamanism and the ethnopharmacology of spiritual transformation for the past quarter century.
An innovative theoretician and spellbinding orator, McKenna emerged as a powerful voice for the psychedelic movement and the emergent societal tendency he calls ‘The Archaic Revival,’ title of one of his most popular books.
Poetically dispensing enlightened social criticism and new theories of the fractal dynamics of time, he unraveled many aspects of the visionary lexicon. As Artist Alex Grey suggests, ‘In the twilight of human history, McKenna’s prescription for salvation is just so crazy it might work.’
In 1993, McKenna wrote in ‘This World and its Double:’ It’s clearly a crisis of two things: of consciousness and conditioning. These are the two things that the psychedelics attack. We have the technological power, the engineering skills to save our planet, to cure disease, to feed the hungry, to end war. But we lack the intellectual vision, the ability to change our minds. We must decondition ourselves from 10,000 years of bad behavior. And, it’s not easy.
The books comes with a bonus essay by Peter Fritz Walter, entitled ‘The Shamanic Method.’
Alternative Medicine and Wellness Techniques: 14 Paths to Integral Health’ (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 3), by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Alternative Medicine and Wellness Techniques: 14 Paths to Integral Health’ (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 3) is a scholarly article that outlines 14 alternative pathways or practices for achieving holistic health. When the author speaks about ‘holistic’ health, he conveys that these practices and techniques do not only cure the symptoms of a disease but also gradually but definitely remove the underlying cause of the illness.
The 14 pathways outlined in the book are Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, Kirlian Photography, Kyudo, Naturopathy, Osteopathy, Qigong. Radionics, Reiki, Sophrology, Tai Chi Chuan, Tibetan Medicine and Yoga.
Before he discusses the various pathways to holistic health, the author relates to the reader why he wrote this book, namely as a result of large-scale medical abuse and malpractice suffered by himself, his mother, and his wife, over several years. He then also outlines how he found a way out of ‘business medicine’ into ‘real medicine’ by relocating to South-East Asia in 1996, where he lives ever since.
As Chinese medicine, next to Ayurveda, is not only the oldest of these medical, sportive or meditative practices, the author has put a particular focus upon it, explaining the basic tenets and principles, such as the duality of Yin and Yang, the two complementary energies of every organism, and the theory of the Five Elements.
The book comes with illustrations and a complete Bibliography.
Eight Dynamic Patterns of Living: Base Elements of True Civilization (Essays on Law, Policy and Psychiatry, Vol. 2, 2018), by Peter Fritz Walter.
Eight Dynamic Patterns of Living: Base Elements of True Civilization (Essays on Law, Policy and Psychiatry, Vol. 2, 2018) is a study on native cultures with a specific focus on their lifestyle patterns.
The study required several years of research on shamanism and aboriginal cultures for providing the evidence that there are eight dynamic patterns of living that are universally respected and applied by major tribal cultures all over the world. The essay concludes that it is these dynamic patterns of living that are the secret why tribal cultures that apply them in their life paradigm live peacefully, respectfully and integrally, and why they are in harmony with nature and live basically without crime and major lifestyle diseases such as cancer, heart disease or immune deficiency syndrome.
The evaluation of multi-disciplinary scientific research clearly shows that postmodern international consumer culture triggers worldwide destruction economically, socially, health-wise, military-wise, ecologically, and in other ways. The reason is that our culture, as all patriarchal dominator civilizations, without exception, have lost the continuum balance that the eight patterns provide; it is lacking in modern culture’s philosophy, science, military policy, diplomacy and foreign policy.
From this insight it becomes evident that the eight patterns are ideally suited to be taken as a guide concept to be implemented in a more wistful international culture of the future, perhaps within a greater paradigm of deep ecology and sustainable growth as Fritjof Capra and others have outlined it in their research publications.
This would then have to be worked out on a joint-governmental and supranational level and as part of our presently evolving post-industrial global culture. The present study makes a substantial contribution to this noble goal.
