How to Search Humancafe
Posted on Saturday, April 04, 2015 - 10:32 am:   

How to Find things on Humancafe.

Humancafe is a random walk. That is how it was written, and that is how it can be read. But it also has structure. It was organized as fields and spheres of ideas, all interconnected and cross-referenced with relative links when possible, coming together as a whole. So it can be approached and explored either way. (Unsigned, anonymous posts are deemed the works of the People of planet Earth.)

As readers from around the world come to Humancafe.com, there is growing demand for 'search' of text written over the past decade and a half. Per the natural evolution of past discussions of the forum (1998 to 2008, and comments added since to the present), there was no catalogued way to arrange the many posts regarding diverse subjects and ideas; these ideas evolved in an organic fashion over time; except as broad fields of discussion. Instead, there is an internal Search engine for the site (at bottom of each page), which uses a simple algorithm to find words, or phrases, which can locate articles. Though not perfect, nor too sophisticated (especially if phrase is too complex, must select "and" filter), this function works both as a word or time related search. If searching pre-2006 when Humancafe forums changed format (earlier posts were separately archived), writings can be found using external search engines like Google if you add "humancafe.com" in the search bar. This outside search can take you back to earlier posts (pre 2006), with good results. More recent articles can be found in the Postscripts section, where current ideas and post-2008 comments are added, often with links to earlier articles where relevant. We hope these search functions will help readers find topics relevant to them so the evolution of our ideas and personal awareness, the goal of this site, will enhance the Humancafe experience. Enjoy.

Milestones & Signposts at Humancafe
Posted on Sunday, October 25, 2015 - 03:42 pm:   

Milestones and signposts at Humancafe.


In the nearly two decades since the founding of Humancafe, ten years of forum discussions, and additional years of introspective writings; three decades since Habeas Mentem was published (Man in all that Is), first conceived idea 1968; certain patterns have presented themselves in its evolution. There appear to be definitive themes flowing through these pages, some recurring while others opening up new directions, all of which in retrospect are an interesting surprise. As the initial premise of Humancafe forums declared in the opening page, the evolution of planetary consciousness is unfolding, enhanced by the World Wide Web, so collectively and individually our ideas become interwoven together with those of others to create new ideas in unexpected ways. This is a delight of these forums, as well as being productive in surprising ways, that when new ideas are born, some of them will be paradigm shifting ideas that will take human consciousness in a whole new direction. These ideas are universals, some in the form of principles, others still speculations, which all fit together in a common theme. But once found, they then take on a life of their own, and take us all to a new level. That is where Humancafe is today, seminal in its creative spirit of new ideas, and perhaps pointing to a new world based on paradigm shifting universal principles. We humbly submit some of these ideas may be influential, though at this time they remain dormant in human consciousness, existing only as latent potential. To see this potential unfold in its own way, in its own time, come alive as the interrelationship totality allows it to form, is one of the most exciting and delightful future events of our universal consciousness. And when it happens, it will be a great event.

Some of this potential future will come from here, and these are the milestones and signposts to look for within the pages of Humancafe. The first milestone on the path to world consciousness is the idea of 'interrelationship', that we are all connected in our ontological existence, connected to all existence in our lives, as well as interconnected in all the lives of others. But it transcends this further, as the interrelated totality of all reality has us personally interconnected to all things in existence, from here to the stars and beyond, in an infinite web; that infinite web defaults to universal consciousness, what defines in each of us Who we are. This is a paradigm shifting idea, for we are not isolated physical bodies of being, rather we are each of us expressions of an infinite existence defined on a point. That point, when aware of its universal being, becomes an instrument of creation in ways we had barely begun experiencing. Singly and together we are incredibly powerful beings, or in effect masters of our destinies in the universe. The logical conclusion is that we must respect that being, unique and infinite, in ways we had not yet learned to do. But we can learn this, once our minds are conscious of it.

This concept of interrelationship runs through all of Humancafe, debated at times in the earlier years, discussions on the meaning of being, as well as questioning whether there can ever be a 'theory of everything'. This would be a theory all encompassing, all aspects of ontological existence, but in particular a theory encompassing all science and physics. Boldly we explored these ideas, and it was upon reflection this evolved into concepts of 'energy', that all energy in an interrelated universe is equal. And that led to something we called the Axiomatic equation, which encompassed not only energy of the electromagnetic spectrum, down to the Quantum (where Planck's constant plays an important role), but also to the macro energies of gravity and inertial mass (per Equivalence). This was the unexpected second milepost, that all interrelated reality can default to a universal concept of energy, one that encompassed gravity as well. But there was a surprise, one not looked for, that Newton and Einstein's gravity was not a universal constant as believed, but a variable 'constant' on a curve. This milestone was mildly shocking, virtually beyond belief, but the more we explored this idea, the more evidence came to fit together. It was as if we had invented a parallel universe, but all the pieces fit. This discovery, as yet unproven, then set a signpost for future discovery, foremost to measure gravity G at orbital regions beyond Earth's and see if the curve fits as the mathematics (using De Broglie and Einstein's basic equations) predict it to be. But if it fits empirically, this is a most exciting evolution of ontological human understanding, and one which in fact points to reality being an exceptionally simple universe. All this then reverts back to interrelationship, in ways that reduces universal reality to a simpler understanding, in real time and spanning infinity, with human consciousness as part of the equation. Though at this time this second milepost is still anecdotal until hard evidence comes in to confirm it, it will be an extremely exciting time giving birth to a whole new line of scientific reasoning, and perhaps new forms of energy and propulsion, when its discovery has been validated with proofs. Though we must remain aware that old ideas die hard, and not all will welcome such fundamental change to what we had come to scientifically believe, we must remain open to future ideas outside the accepted scientific orthodoxy formalism.

A third milestone is mostly evident in the Postscripts, where we explored ideas as a continuation of what had been discussed in earlier years. Much of it was introspective examining how world events reflect human values, what drives agreement versus coercions in our behaviors. This milestone is a direct response to the seminal concept of Habeas Mentem, which says in brief that the more conscious the human mind, the more it needs to be free from coercion, reciprocally, in all human interactions. But the surprise was that this need for freedom from coercion and abuse, something still missing in much of the world, leads to a kind of elitism, where societies who had naturally adopted a de facto Habeas Mentem, those which respect our human rights, outshine those societies where coercion is still the norm. Conscious human beings, as well as those still unconscious in their thoughts and behaviors, must be free of violence, dictatorial oppression, religious fanatical violence, especially against women, and be allowed the freedom to think, to express themselves, and to believe as they choose; the converse leads to enslavement and emotional dysfunctions leading them to do horrific things against their fellow human beings. The signpost here is to look for such coercion where they are still endemic, as it is the fount of many of today's wars, socio-economic instability, and mass oppression of peoples. Witness the massive refugee migrations from Africa and Asia to Europe, or South America to the North. As these pages show, the more coercive society, whether secular or religious, the greater is human suffering. When aware of the value of allowing human beings to freely find their ways in life, to make mistakes and learn from them, and to intelligently negotiate rather than fight, the more enlightened becomes the world, and the brighter its future. These are the principles we must strive for, and at times fight to preserve them, equally for all. Postscripts remains active with occasional contributions, so they are an important milestone of future developments in our human condition.

Finally, there is the spiritual dimension of our human existence. We are much more than our physical being, what appears for us to be our lives in body and mind. This fourth milestone is still speculative, as we had not yet evolved the ability to read the Universal mind, but can only infer from it, that we live in a Living Universe. Both with reason and intuition, more and more people are awakening to our greater being in an interrelated, totally interconnected universe, and our part in it. This is an important milestone, one that leads to a future understanding of how to train young minds to reach their full human potential. The signpost here is to better educate each person into a full being, in the arts, in sciences, in their mental and physical health, without constraints on their personal developments. To see beyond the accepted mainstream ideas is a rare gift, one that should be nurtured within the limits of reason. Humancafe tried to be true to this principle, to give young minds the freedom to explore and grow, with love and patience, same as for all human beings. This is the fount of our spiritual dimension, that we are so much more than we now know, and this greatness should not be squandered and suppressed. We build in the shoulders of all who preceded us, and on our shoulders rests the future of humanity. This is an important milestone of our awareness, one that we must consciously seek to nurture. If so, the problems of the world, ecological, economic, social and political, and our health will all dissolve naturally when we learn to consciously respect every living thing on the planet. That is the power of our interconnectedness to an infinitely interrelated universal reality. And hence, that is the power of an aware global humanity. That, as stated in Humancafe's opening page, and as marked by these milestones and signposts, is the ultimate goal of these forums, that we become a world consciousness, one mind at a time; that is the ultimate path to a true world Peace.

There are other pathways marked with milestones and signposts, mostly as subsets of those already mentioned. But the most exciting pathway for the future is when our world consciousness is developed high enough, our dreams reaching far enough, that our world is ready to travel the stars. Then perhaps we will meet the surprises a universe of consciousness has reserved for us, that though not the first, we had arrived at last.

But in the end, Humancafe appears to be a 'teaching tool'. It teaches us a new kind of thinking, sometimes beyond logic, showing us how we are intimately and infinitively interconnected to our universe. In effect, we created a new kind of ‘interrelationalism’ connecting many disciplines into a whole, and holistic, philosophy. Seen this way, the universe is essentially a 'biofeedback' loop. This was not by design, it simply happened that way. We are interconnected to our universal being in a 'universal mind' kind of way, without being aware of it. But when we do become aware of it at some conscious level, something changes in us, how we see our world, and how we are in it. At some point we will find this new thinking consciousness globally. And when that happens, when we finally are fully conscious as a planet, it will be a great event.
