‘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.
