Human Nature

What Emergence Explores
a Theoretical Outline

Human Consciousness

The Six Concepts the basic nature of our world: that everything we experience is a “two that are one,” the "one" being the sum of the "two" PLUS a "nature" which is created by the union of the two ("nature" = "that which is more than the sum of the parts” ).
The Two Worlds: physical and non- physical (spiritual) at the level of the Macro (whole world) and Micro (personal world i.e. the physical and non-physical bodies)
The Two Languages: thought (physical), emotion (non- physical)
The Two Motives: organization (physical), at-oneness (non- physical)
The Two Obstacles: dis-organization (physical), separateness (non- physical)
The Two Positive Efforts: separation (physical), unity (non- physical)
The Two Negative Efforts: unity (physical), separation (non- physical)
The Consciousness Metaphor a metaphor for how we experience The Six Concepts (the nature of our world). It represents all of human experience using only three variables.
Information:

what is created by witnessing our world from the physical and non-physical perspectives, consciously or otherwise
Meaning what is created by witnessing the visible blend of the two kinds of Information
Time what is created by witnessing the visible union of Information and Meaning
Event Diagrams three dimensional visual explorations of how we experience The Consciousness Metaphor
Visual diagrams of peoples’ states of consciousness during specific life events, based on the four basic life events: (being overwhelmed, getting wounded, reliving a wound, experiencing an emergence)
“X” axis = “Information” a continuum of the two kinds of Information, thought and emotion
“Y” axis = “Meaning” a continuum from infinite to none
“Z” axis = “Time” a continuum from the extreme past to the extreme future
Human Personality

The Layers of Aloneness three dimensional visual explorations of how we experience
Visual diagrams of peoples’ states of consciousness during specific life events, based on the four basic life events: (being overwhelmed, getting wounded, reliving a wound, experiencing an emergence)
“X” axis = “Information” a continuum of the two kinds of Information, thought and emotion
“Y” axis = “Meaning” a continuum from infinite to none
“Z” axis = “Time” a continuum from the extreme past to the extreme future
BLocks and Keys a consciously directed technique for "self-emergence"
[1] I know it's not you. Picture who or what you see as the cause of your suffering AND while holding this picture, internally hear yourself say only, "I know it's not you (that is causing my pain)";
[2] How old do I feel? internally sense your age by asking yourself, "how old do I feel right now?" Now, internally hear only a number, nothing more;
[3] What emotions am I experiencing? check inside yourself for your spiritual state by asking yourself, "what emotions am I feeling right now?" Now, internally hear only the words needed to name your emotions, nothing more.

Now, repeat these three steps until a scene emerges. That's all there is to it.

Emergence Therapy

Visual Dialogues guided, here and now explorations of the life events we experience in “P’ Curves Explores orally and interactively what people experience in and around “P” Curves. Seeks to expand on and integrate the visions and lack of vision discovered and uncovered during the “P’ Curve process.
“P” Curves guided, written explorations of what we experience in Event Diagrams
Explores and records on paper a person’s abilities to internally visualize specific life areas, sorting these experiences into two categories: what the person can internally visualize and what the person can not internally visualize.

This process utilizes the ideas that what a person can not internally visualize is what is “Blocked,” and that discovering and exploring these “BLocks" is the most direct way to heal a person’s woundedness.

Direct Emergence consciously directed (guided) here and now life explorations in which we relive a BLock in the service of healing it
Also known as “playing the bad guy.” Guides use this collection of techniques to directly provoke people back into their wounding scenes, purposely creating a “healing stage” on which it is possible for them to emerge from a BLock.

 

Cycles of Three a consciously directed technique for "self-emergence"
[1] I know it's not you. Picture who or what you see as the cause of your suffering AND while holding this picture, internally hear yourself say only, "I know it's not you (that is causing my pain)";
[2] How old do I feel? internally sense your age by asking yourself, "how old do I feel right now?" Now, internally hear only a number, nothing more;
[3] What emotions am I experiencing? check inside yourself for your spiritual state by asking yourself, "what emotions am I feeling right now?" Now, internally hear only the words needed to name your emotions, nothing more.

Now, repeat these three steps until a scene emerges. That's all there is to it.

The Five Perspectives the five ways to describe what changes in us during an emergence

[1] Consciousness, [2] Learning, [3] Wounds, [4] Healing, [5] Love.

 

 

The True Sequence of Life Events
The Most Basic Error in Healing Revealed

The Assumed Sequence of Life Experience: Event > Interpretation > Response (ALL cognitive and behavioral therapies are built on this erroneous assumption. So are the changes suggested by most philosophies and religions.)
The Actual Sequence of Life Experience: Event > Response > Interpretation (the assumed sequence underlying all emergence.)
