Welcome to the Quest
This is a completely different approach
to the fundamental issues of today :
Entitlement, Belonging & Change
re-connecting Economy with Ecology
Inviting the ‘mindful eye‘ to a place of contemplation & reflection.
– So, take your time and open your mind !
Now is the time for a radical & fundamental Paradigm Shift .
Untangle the Network of Entanglements !

– mentally fit enough to ‘jump the fences’,
– going beyond the ‘normal’ mambo jumbo !
This is a place of Insight & Vision,
where the healing process begins
in the Chaos of Here & Now !
Any Logic in this Reality originates in Logos, – the word,
and any logic Thought begins by formulating a Question.
Throughout these sites I make great use of metaphors & allegories.
Conceptual metaphors are considered to be a cognitive language,
and are commonly used to characterize or describe more complicated
processes in a more simple & undiscriminating fashion.
These metaphors shape, not just our communication,
but also our way of thinking & behavior.
These pages try to encourage a fundamental change of thinking, a shift in your paradigm of perception

In most cases it doesn’t matter how much we understand the problem itself,
but how to recognize the mental processes leading up to it.
We are all conditioned to behave this way or another, and it is deeply ingrained in our sub-conscious mind
how to respond or react to a challenge or situations.
Most of our reactions & responses have become an involuntary reflex, just like pulling our hand off a hot stove.
Often, when we are facing a problem in life, we deny or ignore the facts because we think it’s a ‘natural’ reflex.
– But it is anything else, but not ‘natural‘ response.
Most reactions are conditioned, passed down to us thru time & generations.
It’s like seeing a piece of rope and screaming in fear of a snake.
If we are conditioned that way, this is how we will react to a harmless rope.
We might understand that our fear is irrational but it does not change our response.
This reaction is forged into our minds thru lifelong training sessions,
and it takes even more time to change & control this behavior.
Can we look at something ‘objectively‘, and does this ‘Reality‘ really matter, does it matter to us at all ? We can sit back after a fury and wonder why we reacted that way and why we were not conditioned for that;
– why did we just reacted like ‘flesh to the fire’ ?
Let us awake and start looking ‘behind’ & ‘underneath’ the obscurities of the occurrence,
let us find out what is arising from the depth of our sub-conscious mind.
Then let us questioning what really matters to us and distinguish
between our involuntary conditioning and a conscious learning process.
Being alert at every moment, recognizing how we perceive things and what we ‘make of it’,
– what are we using to ‘kindle the fire‘ and how are we ‘feeding‘ this problem.
Eventually we will see what is really happening around us and how it effects us,
we will recognize what is real knowledge and what is just a product of our conditioned mind.
Then we can start taking control of it, slowly stop feeding it, it will deflate and lose its force.
After this ‘weeding‘, our true ‘Self’ can begin growing from within again,
we can free ourselves from all the accumulated illusions & confusions,
our mind can ‘breath‘ freely again and we will see the simple truth in life.
The majority of our sub-consciousness is programmed in the first 5-6 years of life, starting before birth.
But after that, our Linear Culture has declared war against whatever this sub-conscious mind brings up.
-And the war against questioning the uncontrollable, illogical 3I’s of sub-consciousness continues…
We do not teaching the fundamentals of life anymore,
self-discovery & self-analyses are not part of our curriculum.
Sub-consciousness has the dynamic of the Chaos,
and we are tangled-up in its network of Entanglement
Real education is about teaching & learning how to maneuver the individual spirit thru the divine chaos of life,
and how to live in balance & harmony with oneself & the ‘Rest of Creation‘.
‘Intelligent Design’ and Evolution are not contradictions,
and both, Evolution & Creation should be taught in schools.
We need to reactivate our Social Emotional Sensitivities and redefine Intelligence !
We need to R-evolutionize our way of teaching & learning !
We need to loose our fear to approach all sides of the elephant !
We need to discuss & debate all issues of life fully and openly !
We do not need to compartmentalize, specialize or polarize learning any longer.
Not only our children need free access to real education, but everybody else on this planet,
regardless of social status, race, age or gender, deserves free information & knowledge !
By opening-up and embracing it all, we might start to comprehend
the ‘Grand Theory of Everything’ and find our ‘Wisdom’ a bit easier !
A Contemplation about Life and its Relation to the Whole
“A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe’, a part ‘limited’ in time & space.
He experiences himself, his thoughts & feelings as something separated from the rest,
– a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us,
restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest to us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty.
Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself
a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Einstein 1950
This site is a comprehensive metaphor of uniting physical, mental & spiritual realities.
Our Longing for Real Change,
– has to steer away from the Paradigm of the Linear Culture,
leading away from the forces of Control, Domination & Conquest.
Our Quest for Inclusion, Acceptance & Integration,
begins with the Knowledge that we are part-of it, and that we are able fit into ‘our’ environment,
rather than constantly trying to possess & control it.
As we all witness the total collapse of the Linear Culture, crashing against the borders of its own limitations & parameters, a new world of Chaos is emerging, a New Reality of Life, we can chose to fight or embrace.
Most people, governments, experts & scientists included, still live in a world of Denial, addicted to a linear, hierarchic Belief Systems of Law & Order with Growth & Expansion for a Bigger, Better & Faster future;
they still trying to force these materialistic Theories & Beliefs onto us and our children.
As we are taught to think in Linguistic terms, we are focusing on the physical ‘structure‘ of things,
looking for the ‘Building Blocks’ of Life, completely forgetting that everything is in Flux
and an ever-changing pulse of energy.
With this way of thinking we are taking a ‘snapshot’ of a moment, a Still Image of something
which is actually in a state of constant motion.
And then we hold on to it, capture it, cast it in stone and take possession of it,
claiming & believing that this is the Right & Only One Truth in Life.
Now we got trapped in this belief that we are ‘free’ to possess everything from an idea to a property.
We separated us from the rest of the world by building mental & physical walls & fences around
us and our properties, we live in our own box of creation, isolated & disconnected
from the Dynamic & Energy of Eternal Life.
This way our mind has stagnated and made us completely unaware of the motions,
dynamics & balances in Real Life, left us unconscious of our psyche;
– we have lost our Sense of Belonging to the Whole
15.11. 2008: G 20 Summit pledge to ‘restore growth’! – ( how foolish !)
Now the tension between continuity & CHANGE
is not just an ancient philosophical conundrum,
it is one of the most pressing questions of our time.
But, as life is teaching us right now, we can not hold onto a moment in time,
we can not control the elements or the climate.
Any Control & Possession of water, air & soil is just an outdated Belief System,
a collective illusion which will pop like any other bubble on the endless ocean of Life.
Our Awareness of Belonging
is the Fundamental Difference
to the Paradigm of Posessions !
Belonging is our affinity to the collective, being with and feeling to be a part of the group, the tribe,
the human race and the world we live in.
Belonging is to be connected to the whole, to feel complete, safe & strong, secure & in-balance
within ourselves and the environment.
Understanding ourselves as an organic part of the world, being aware of our Sense of Wisdom!
This site is re-connecting the dots between
Spirituality & World-Economics,
Health & Food-Production,
between Climate-Change & Education,
Personal Responsibilities & Collective Benefits.
Reconnecting You & me with the Energy of Creation
“The world is not a structure built out of existing, analyzable entities, but rather a web of relationships between elements whose meanings arise wholly from their relationship to the whole.” Quantum physicist H. P. Strapp
At the ‘Dawn of an Eco-logical Age’,
with a growing recognition of our interdependence with nature,
we need to learn how to use our Insight & Vision again,
how to work in Context and within the Complexity of a system.
“The House of Belonging” a poem
In fact, WE ARE CONNECTED !
