Never say: this is impossible!

An airplane, thought out by Leonardo da Vinci (object in the exhibition in Tübingen/Germany)

Visionaries see reality differently

It is only about 100 years ago that airplanes exist. we seem to have forgotten the short time span in which dreams of early visioneries came true. 500 years ago, Leonardo daVinci tried to find solutions for problems of his time, some of them worked, some of them were considered impossible, like people flying like birds.

Perpetuum mobile – does it exist?

DaVinci tried also to construct a “perpetuum mobile”, an everlasting movement. It didn’t work out and since then people kept believing that it doesn’t exist and never can. That’s what a visitor at the exhibition in Tübingen told me: He has learned at school, that it doesn’t exist. well, yes, at the material level with all the frictions and disturbances. But DaVinci’s dream has become true on the quantum level. But who understands Quantum Physics enough to come to be convinced that a perpetuum mobile really exists, despite what the old text books teach us? On the quantum level many things are possible which we ignored and are still ignoring. We need dedicated scientists to find that out, and fortunately there are many, although not recognized by main stream conventional science doctrine.


New Energies – Breakthrough Energies

The promise of new energies and more: what I take away from the Breakthrough Energy Conference two weeks ago.

I need to say right away, these “New energies” have nothing to do with solar panels or windmills which seem to be the only ways of producing “clean energy” in the public opinion. Underneath of the desperate cry for abandoning fossil fuels. which is not backed up by any viable solution concept, there are pioneers all over the world, who dedicate their time and money to the research of truly new ways of energy production. 

How come that these possibilities do not appear anywhere in the climate change debate? 

Climate protection is not protection of earth and nature – the shortsightedness of the present discussion

Why do we want to destroy our landscape with fields of solar panels or huge windmills which plaster the soil with masses of concrete and hack birds into pieces? Why don’t we consider that, at night, when our future electric cars need to be charged, there is no sun to provide energy? And why don’t we consider either, how huge parts of the country would be filled with ugly buildings, containing batteries? It will be like a city behind the city, but with dead material which is difficult to dispose when exhausted! People seem to believe, that all these problems either don’t exist or resolve themselves without any problem,. 

It would not be the first time that good intent leads to a catastrophe.

And in the meantime we will be asked to pay taxes on CO2 emissions, which won’t eliminate the problem, but only increase the gap in life-quality, between the rich and the poor, between those who have enough money to buy a new sophisticated car and take airplanes at higher costs, and those who cannot afford any of that any more..

Why can’t people see that the really good solutions are around the corner and look totally different than what we are offered so far? 

Probably because we are culturally stuck in a worldview of more than 100 years ago. The physics which is still taught in schools and universities doesn’t allow, what in former times was called the “Perpetuum Mobile”. And yet, there is clear evidence, theoretical and practical, that there are machines which generate energy without constant input: after an initial kick they go on by themselves.

The old dream of humanity has become true – and the people ignore it completely.
– How tragic is that!?!

All new things take time, yes. The inertia is huge. All textbooks would need to be rewritten, the scientific view on the world would be upside down, and naturally people stick to their old beliefs and ideas as long as possible. The motto is:

 “Even if it was true, I wouldn’t believe it”

My takeaways from the Global Breakthrough Energy Conference

The conference was very encouraging and also consoling to me. I didn’t certainly understand the math and all of the graphs which were shown, but what I understood was the following:

  • With a holistic view on the world and a really open mind you can find completely new concepts in a new reality
  • We totally underestimate the power of water which goes far beyond water driven turbines!
  • This reality is spiritual. Materialistic science without the spiritual dimension misses out the most import insights and the true reality of the Kosmos
  • Transmutation is occuring in the labs. Alchemie is real. With that we can/could clean the present pollution of the world and shorten the decay time of atomic waste, change poisonous material into innocuous water and much more.
  • These new processes arise by learning from Nature . aligning with it and imitating its processes, instead of disrupting Nature (the current paradigm)
  • The sacredness of existence is the basis of all future development and the desire to support life in any aspect. 
  • Free energy devices are on their way, the Perpetuum Mobile is real, and  the end of the petrodollar – and with that of our present economic system – will gradually arrive. 
  •  Visions for a new economy are based on trust and transparency.

Whoever is inspired by what I write: You can buy the recordings of the conference of this year at Sooner or later they will appear on their Youtube channel where you can already find a lot of information. In the past years it seemed to be more about uncovering the things which don’t work in science and society. This conference instead was in a total positive view on the future where crucial problems can be solved – as soon as humanity is ready for that and willing to step out of the unconscious ways of being completely blind and ignorant.

Climate Change Movement – Some politically non-correct considerations

Wenn gute Absichten zu Ideologien führen

Ich musste mich letzten Freitag Freunden gegenüber verteidigen, dass ich nicht mit auf die Freitag für Future Demonstration gehen wollte.

Ein neues Thema für öffentliche Panik

Ich bin einfach der Meinung, dass diese momentane Hysterie mal wieder eine Mode ist. Vorher war es Feinstaub, dann auch mal Stickoxide, oder die Vogelgrippe (die uns veranlasste, vorbeugend einen Haufen Medikamente zu kaufen – und die Grippe kam dann doch nicht, haha), die Schweinepest oder was sonst noch. die Phantasie, neue Angstobjekte aufzubauschen, hervorbringt. Das ist offenbar endlos.
Jede Bewegung meint, es ist super ernst und dringend. Ängste werden geschürt, die rationales Denken verhindern und alles zu Glaubensangelegenheiten, bzw. Ideologien macht: Dafür oder Dagegen. Und dann verschwindet sie wieder in der Versenkung. War wohl nichts gewesen, mit der Super-Ernstheit, oder?

Entscheidungen sollten gut durchdacht werden auf alle Konsequenzen hin.

Ich denke, dass alles viel zu wenig durchdacht ist. Wenn Du mir ein Klimapaket verkaufen willst, dann sag doch bitte erstmal, wie genau du das umsetzen willst? Elektroautos für alle und gleichzeitig Solarstrom? Ist doch wohl nicht Dein Ernst!! Wenn die Leute abends nach Hause kommen und ihr Auto in die Steckdose stecken werden, gibt es keine Sonne. Und genau dann wird das Netz überbeansprucht. Also dann doch wieder Kohle her oder Gas, denn man braucht ja das Auto morgen wieder.

Übrigens hatten wir ja schon einmal Autos, die wesentlich weniger Sprit verbrauchten. Die wollte aber keiner, also ist die Produktion eingestellt. Da hätte der Bürger seinen Willen schon mal zeigen können, auf Co2 Ausstoß zu verzichten, bzw. ihn zu minimieren, oder? Und jetzt wird gefordert und Geld rausgeworfen für unausgegorenes Wunschdenken. Naja.

Wie man Geld begräbt

In meinem Dafürhalten wird das Geld an genau der falschen Stelle ausgegeben. Nachhaltige Landwirtschaft, natürlicher Kreislauf, Bodenverbesserung usw. wäre eher angesagt, als Milliarden zu versenken in Blödsinn.

Greta klagte die Welt an auf der Klimakonferenz. Geld dürfe kein Thema sein, wenn es um das Klima geht. Das zeugt, ehrlich gesagt, von totaler Unwissenheit. Es gibt viele ernstzunehmende Probleme auf der Welt, für die sich das Geldausgeben wirklich unmittelbar lohnt und Menschenleben in Millionen rettet. Jetzt, nicht hypothetisch in 100 Jahren.

Here die Grafik, wo man sehen kann, wofür Geld ausgeben sich am meisten lohnt im Sinne von “Gutes Tun”

Mit all dem CO2 Gerede es sieht ja fast so aus im Moment, als würden die Leute glauben, CO2 sei gefährlich, giftig oder so was ähnliches! Wer das glaubt, sollte kein Cola oder Bier mehr trinken oder jedwede andere Art von Sprudelwasser.

Und es scheint auch nicht bekannt zu sein, dass alles Grüne in der Natur CO2 BRAUCHT, um Sauerstoff herzustellen. Vielleicht sollte man wieder Bäume und Büsche in die Betonstädte pflanzen, um die Luft zu verbessern, anstatt CO2 Steuern zu Lasten des Normalbürgers einzuführen?

Das meiste des Obigen hatte ich auf HUMAN CONNECTION gepostet und einige Antworten bekommen. Das veranlasste mich, den folgenden 2.Teil zu schreiben:

Warum ich bei Fridays for Future nicht mitmache

Man hat mich eingeladen, das nächste Mal mit auf die Demo zu gehen, aber das werde ich nicht tun, denn das würde für mich bedeuten, dass ich alles unterstütze, was da so auf Plakaten herumgetragen wird. Das tue ich nicht, aus im ersten Teil schon beschriebenen Gründen. Die Lehrer sollten den Kids beibringen, selber für sich und ihre Umwelt VERANTWORTUNG ZU ÜBERNEHMEN, ANSTATT VON ANDEREN ZU FORDERN. Das ist das gegenwärtige übliche Spiel. Und wenn die Lehrer mit demonstrieren gehen, unterstützen sie das Externalisieren von Verantwortung.

Zum Thema “gut gemeint, aber ins Gegenteil treffend”: in meiner Generation sind die Studenten auf die Straße gegangen und haben einiges erreicht, zweifellos. (Aber sie haben nicht ihre Eltern oder Lehrer mitgenommen, sondern eigenverantwortlich gehandelt). Der Haken war, als sich alles als Ideologie verfestigte und extrem wurde, kam die Bader-Meinhof Gruppe heraus, eine “Bedrohung der freiheitlichen Grundordnung”, dem dann durch Gesetze entgegengetreten wurde, die genau unsere Freiheit als Bürger einschränkten. Blöd gelaufen? Naja.

Wenn immer der Kopf von den Emotionen überrannt wird, kommt mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit genau das Gegenteil heraus von dem, was man eigentlich angestrebt hat.

Übrigens Emotionen.

Die Kids sind sehr jung. Könnte ja sein, dass sie zum ersten Mal in ihrem Leben mit ihrer eigenen Endlichkeit konfrontiert werden, mit der Tatsache, dass es Tod gibt. Und da wird im allgemeinen mit Panik reagiert, auch bei den älteren Menschen – was sicher nicht die beste Vorbereitung für das Unausweichliche ist. Dann setzt man halt alle Energie in den Versuch, dem Tod zu entkommen, irgendwas oder irgendwen als Schuldigen zu entlarven und zu hoffen, den zunichte zu machen und sich dafür Unsterblichkeit zu erkaufen. Eine uralte Illusion in der Menschheitsgeschichte.

Zurück zu den Demonstrationen gegen Klimawandel:

Ich wette, dass 95% und mehr Kids ein Smartphone in der Tasche haben, wahrscheinlich sogar die neueste Ausgabe. Kein Gedanke an die vielen Kinder, die ihr Leben und ihre Gesundheit ruinieren und in die Minen steigen, damit wir auf dem letzten Stand der Technik sein können und hier wird das überholte Modell mal eben in die Mülltonne geworfen. Klimawandelprotest ist Lippenbekenntnis, solange man selber sich im Bequemen und Unbewußten ausruhen kann.

CO2 Steuer.

Industrie und Benzin verteuern: Damit haben wir WAS erreicht? Die Industriegüter, die wir kaufen (und viele davon auch BRAUCHEN) werden teurer und die, die genug Geld haben, klimpern mit den Wimpern und bezahlen halt ein bisschen mehr. Die anderen, die sich endlich auch mal einen Urlaub in der Sonne leisten konnten, können das dann nicht mehr, und viele wichtigen Dinge können sie sich kaum noch leisten. Jede Verteuerung in der Produktion wird hauptsächlich vom kleinen Mann + Frau getragen. Dabei sei dahingestellt, ob man viele von den Dingen, die produziert werden, wirklich braucht.

Statt den Kleinen zu belasten, soll man lieber da hingehen, wo tatsächlich C02 Emissionen stattfinden: Bei den Waldbränden jeder Art wir gerade wieder überall geschehen (Zweige verbrennen im eigenen Garten ist ironischerweise verboten) und Massentierhaltung, deren “Erzeugnisse” zu mindestens einem Drittel einfach weggeworfen werden in den Supermärkten! (Als wären Tiere Dinge, die man beliebig wegwerfen kann!). Und, ja, das Militär, vor allem USA!, an das ich vor dem Video mit Erwin Thoma nie gedacht hätte! Und die Mode, Betonhäuser hinzustellen als Normalding. Auch daran hatte ich vorher nicht gedacht! Ich selber bin in einem Fachwerkhaus aufgewachsen und lebe jetzt in einem Steinhaus, Gott sei Dank.

Naja, soweit erstmal für heute.

Ich hoffe, ein bisschen gezeigt zu haben, dass wir, in der besten Absicht, uns oft auf Teilwahrheiten fixieren und daraus versuchen, Lösungen zu finden, was zum Scheitern verurteilt ist. Mein Anliegen ist es, darauf aufmerksam zu machen, wenn Menschen reduktionistisch Entscheidungen treffen, wenn sie nicht genug Perspektiven berücksichtigen und, ganz allgemein, nicht unterscheiden können zwischen emotionale Panik und ruhigem, weisen Überlegen.

Jordan Peterson – Integral and not only for young men!

Ken Wilber interviewed about Jordan Peterson: a confirmation

When I came across Jordan Peterson, I was struck by his knowledge, bravery and ability to convey his ideas in a way which seemed “integral” to me. The integral community widely ignored Peterson at that time and I started to talk about him, with some success with people who actually took the time to listen what he was saying. The main message I got: Peterson is somewhere first tier, at best orange, probably blue – as he is focused of helping people to get some order into their lives -, but integral?

The Jeff Salzman, a highly esteemed integral podcaster, tooted into the same horn, to my surprise. I wrote two responses to him as an open letter, sent it also personally to him. (You can find them below)

I never got an answer. Why not? I guess that he hadn’t actually listened to enough of Peterson’s videos and made his judgement on an incomplete picture. No problem, we all learn more and more in time.  Later, when he was interviewed by Rebel Wisdom, he already spoke a little differently. (

What a satisfaction for my little ego when the last video of Rebel Wisdom came out, where Ken Wilber is interviewed about Jordan Peterson.  Ken says right away: Jordan is a INTEGRAL THINKER.  I was right and so was Mark with whom I had watched about a hundred of Peterson’s videos and had talked them over together. Finally the pro-con-conversations in the forums can get less derogative, hopefully acquire a little more appreciation for the enormous good work which Peterson has done – even if he doesn’t yet get far enough in some of his considerations, as Ken remarks.

Fact is that once, after the debate Peterson – Harris, I had written to Peterson and suggested to look into the integral roadmap. I felt that he was spending too much energy on exposing the differences by wanting to be right. This would become obsolete when he had seen that both of them were talking the about  the same thing, but from the perspectives of different quadrants. If they could see that, they would realize that they were more agreeing than disagreeing. Too bad that neither of them knows about Ken’s map. It would be very helpful for both of them and sharpen their message a lot. Also here: no answer. People are too busy I guess.

Ken Wilber and Jordan Peterson. Both have changed my life deeply, the way I see the world, myself and other people. Looking back in my life, these two men have had the biggest impact on me and my understanding of life on this planet. I am deeply grateful and happy that they are keeping up their good work in complementary to each other, each one covering important aspects, often overlapping, sometimes with different emphasis on different areas. Both together give a truly comprehensive picture of reality, in my opinion and in my own experience. THANK YOU! M

Have you noticed that both our worlds have changed?

That is, both the world outside us and the world within us. Ken Wilber wasn’t the first to discover this phenomenon, but he’s the one who articulated it to me.  And for that I am grateful, not simply for the realization itself but also for the difference that knowing that, deeply knowing that, is making in my life.

The Universe is Not a Machine – Neither are Humans


The big change in worldview can change the world itself

some thoughts and considerations by Heidi Hornlein

We thought the Universe, the world and ourselves were machines for the last few centuries. This helped us a lot to understand from an outside point of view how things “really” work. As long as we were fused with life and our ways of living we couldn’t see from inside what a more “objective” view can discover. Discernment can happen only on an higher level, as you can see the dimension of a forest easily when looking down from an airplane,

So with the rise of natural science, human curiosity digging deep and dissecting into what seemed to be a given unit found single pieces, working together and forming the whole in a describable process. Wow! We have discovered the nature of the Universe: a wonderfully working mechanical machine!

Can you see the beauty of this worldview, of this discovery which gave so much explanation and sense to the long unanswered question about the origin of our world. Well, the creation, the super opus created by a man with a long beard, sitting on a cloud, this could calm the curiosity for some time before, but humans have the habit to think and get better and better in it. So the God- explanation didn’t satisfy any more a mind which is searching for sense in observable facts. No one has ever met the guy on the cloud creating a tree, a horse, not even the weather.

Seen from that perspective the idea of the Universe being a machine was a huge step ahead – and actually it has led us to the huge technological progress which has enabled us to live in ways which not even kings and queens were able before. We have heated houses, warm water and bathtubs behind the next door, cars, busses, trains, airplanes – nobody needs to walk for days to reach his destination. We live the miracle of the dreams of so many generations before us.

So why aren’t we happy? What’s wrong with all that? Nothing is WRONG, actually. Evolution takes it’s time and occurs in cycles, or better it jumps from one seemingly stable and “eternal” level to the next. And we are asked to jump again these days.

The universe as a gigantic machine was a good model to explain things for a long time. But now we know more – and better – and also this new knowledge one day might be obsolete and replaced by new and more comprehensive knowledge and wisdom which creates new and more “right” models.

Now we are asked to make the jump from seeing the Universe and everything in it as pieces of material to compounds of energy. That doesn’t mean that we need to doubt our senses which say “solid thing” when we touch a table. Knowing that it is composed by mainly empty space, the particles running around somewhere and these energy units together building the table, doesn’t mean that it is not there, immaterial. We need to not mix up the “levels” of reality in everyday life. It is like in Geometry: when we measure the ground floor of a building we still use the ancient Pythagorean geometry although we know for quite a time that on a bigger scale, it is slightly incorrect. It is a question of usefulness and adequacy that we still work with parallel lines – or with solid tables and chairs. They all are “real” in the given context.

The limits of the mechanistic worldview can best be seen and experienced by EVERYBODY when it comes to health issues. When we have a headache and take a drug to make it disappear – and then we have stomach ache because of the side effects of the drug – and then the headache comes back after some time, we consider our body as a somehow random collection of pieces which shouldn’t be connected – in the case of the side effects. So instead of considering that the headache might not be caused by a local issue – except when you have banged your head against the wall, which we are constantly doing, at least figuratively – we could begin to search for the systemic connections between body parts, but also between our different levels of reality, like feelings, thoughts, beliefs, habits etc.

Some individuals have known about the connections inside a human being and its interaction with external circumstances for a long time. In the last century they were not persecuted any more by church authorities for offending religious dogma, but they ran risks to be fought by the “newer” authority, the money gods. Nonetheless, thanks to many courageous people who listened to their consciousness and to their ethical feeling of what is right these new ideas popped up more often, were re enforced and are now on the tipping point to seriously affect mainstream knowledge and ideology. Again, the beard of old dogma is being cut, we will have huge gains in understanding and in practical benefits like increased health, longer lives, good lives for everybody, and many things we might even not be able to imagine yet.

This will be the truth for some time – until something truer and “better” will arrive at the horizon and replace also this. Evolution is on it’s way, step by step – and don’t get stuck on one floor if you want to reach the next!
