The principles of change

Creative Law

This is really important because everything in existence is change. There is nothing to cling to or hold onto. Change cannot be avoided. I would go even further and state that change can never really be understood. Therefore separateness, continuity, permanence, cause and effect, self-improvement, are all illusions. But the biggest illusion of them all is control and the notion that an individual human being, essentially a walking, talking ape, can have any sort of power over their environment or the processes of change going on around them. This is nonsense.

So what we're going to be looking at here is the core foundation mystical principles of change - trauma, karma and reincarnation. I'm going to show you how we arrive at the Principle and the Process so you have a basic mystical reference point for figuring everything out. Please keep in mind that this is very rudimentary, basic, and only gives you the bare bones basic principles of existence. You have to figure out everything else yourself.

We start with Creative Law, which is a law I developed in 2009 and is about the relationship of energy to consciousness and space. In actual reality it's about the relationship between energy and consciousness, but we humans break consciousness down into consciousness and space based on what we can perceive. Consciousness is what we can perceive and understand to be existence. Space is what we cannot perceive, we perceive emptiness, space, but it's still consciousness. You can take space to be reality because from your individual perspective if something exists, then it must exist in space, you can perceive it, and it must be real, right? Does that make sense?

Creative Law is a simplification of Natural Law or Universal Law. There is a lot of debate whether Natural Law is Universal Law, or Universal Law is Natural Law, because humans love to argue and debate everything but since the development of digital technology and the internet, and social media you're getting different interpretations of Natural Law, including this YouTube video about everything, I've also seen 10 hour videos on 'the theory of everything'. As far as I'm aware I'm the only person I know to strip everything down to a simple meme, which you see above. Creative Law - which is increasingly being quoted in academic papers in universities worldwide - is just one part of Qultura methodology. It's just the starting point.

Neil de Grasse Tyson quote

Reality cannot be objectively understood

Both the universe and environment is coming at you constantly in a vast multi-dimensional continuum of sensation and experience. In other words everything is happening everywhere all the time. You're just a human being, one of millions of other species on a living planet, one which cannot even be clearly made out in a minor galaxy somewhere out on the edges of the universe. Life has existed on this planet for at least 38 billion years. Humans have been here around 2 million years.

Even if you lived for a 1,000 years and spent your millenium swotting hard at a university, you still wouldn't know that much more than you know now. You can trust me on this. I've spent close to 40 years studying mysticism and in developing Creative Law I learned that much of what I had learned isn't that much use but always seemed to take me further down a rabbit hole. My point here is that nobody is smarter than you (and this includes me) and nobody knows what's going on, and this is simply because change is a constant and neither consciousness nor reality can be understood, known, defined or taught.

So therefore while ignorance is often seen as a bad thing, it's actually not and this is simply because we are all fundamentally ignorant and this is simply because we cannot understand the fundamental basis of our existence, which is consciousness, and our reality, which is space. Ignorance is only unhelpful, and potentially harmful, if you choose not to make any effort to educate yourself and figure out your own individual truth but instead rely on other people, authority figures and ideology to determine what you think and what choices you make in life. There's a lot of people out there who will not waste any time misleading you, exploiting you, or trying to gain power or control over you by claiming to know more about something than you do. Just remember that all belief requires your participation, and all lies are transactions between a teller and a believer.

energy

Perception through energy and physicality

Creative Law is fundamentally about the relationship between energy and consciousness or space. Energy is simple and easy to understand because it's a matter of cycles and waves, frequencies and vibrations, and the energy vibration is the fundamental basis of all physical existence. From an individual human perspective the higher the frequency of energy the closer the relationship is to space, and the lower the frequency of energy is, the closer the relationship is to consciousness. This is what's known in Creative Law as the Energy Spectrum.

The higher the frequency of energy, the closer the relationship is to trauma and the lower the frequency of energy, the closer the relationship is to drama. Trauma and drama are the two extremes of the cycle. Trauma is force and this is where you get solid, inanimate objects, totally lifeless, and drama is the negation of force, and this is where you get life and living existence. This is the difference between physical mass and biological matter. Life is simply the experience of consciousness manifesting through physical form. Your individual conscious perspective is the centre of your consciousness and is never manifest, but to actually experience life then there needs to be a relationship between consciousness and energy and you need a physical form - a physical body, a brain, a sensory nervous system, and sensory perception. Without these things you cannot experience life.

You see consciousness is never manifest, which is why you cannot distinguish between consciousness and space. Nobody can. Consciousness can only be manifest through energy and physical form. The nature of energy is to go from consciousness into space, therefore whenever you have life and living existence, which takes place an extremely low frequencies of energy. The basic life cycle or incarnation of a human being can take anything up to 120 years to complete. Trees live on the basis of an ever lower frequency. The life cycle of a tree can take thousands of years to complete. As trauma is force with no counter it is the nature of energy to escalate in frequency until it goes into space. This is what makes trauma so inevitable in life. You grow old, you age, you get sick, you die, experience of some degree of trauma is inevitable in life.

principle and process

The Principle and the Process

Creative Law is how we get to the Principle and Process, which is the basic and most fundamental universal principle of Qultura methodology. Everything to do with Qultura is based on this one universal principle. The principle itself is incredibly simple. Existence is a principle, creativity and interaction is a process. That's all there is to existence, the principle and the process. This is the 'how?' and 'what?' of life. Everything has a principle and a process. The universe has a principle and process. This planet has a principle and process. Plants, trees and animals all have a principle and process. You have a principle and process. I have a principle and process. Everyone else has a principle and process.

Each and every principle and process is unique and individual. This is because every instance of consciousness moving into energy - an incarnation - is unique and individual and is never ever repeated. This is because while energy is a constant and cycles of energy are relatively uniform, consciousness is entirely spontaneous, random, and cannot be defined in physical terms or language. No two days you experience are ever really the same. No two human beings are ever exactly the same. There can be similarities and we all go through the same broad spectrum of experience of love, life and death, but when it comes down to the individual human being, the principle will always be unique and individual because the process - which is known as a karmic process - will always be unique and individual. Your life experience may be similar to others, but it's never exactly the same as anyone else.

So this is where we can get into understanding what reincarnation, trauma and karma are really all about:

Reincarnation
If consciousness going into energy and manifesting as physical form is incarnation, then reincarnation is simply consciousness going into physical form over and over and over again - interminably. This is not just life after death, it's also waking up, thinking, breathing, perception, conception and many many other things as well. Therefore reincarnation is all about the relationship between consciousness and energy.
Trauma
Trauma is force, and generally - whether is is subtle such as through ageing or violent through impact and shock, trauma is generally force coming from out of an environment and experienced by an individual. But then there is also trauma in relationship between two individuals where force manifests forcing changing in some form on one or both individuals. However from an individual human perspective trauma is always environmental in nature because other people are part of your social environment, and a social environment obviously is an environment.
Karma
Karma is physical reality and takes in both being and doing. It's originally a Sanskrit word which means 'action' but implicitly it can also refer to memory, simply because memory is a consequence of action. Karma is any and all physical activity, thinking, perception, conception, communication, doing, action, and it is also choice, motion and direction.

So when we talk about a process in terms of the Qultura concept of Principle and Process, what we're referring to is a karmic process. The bulk of your karmic process will determined in your childhood and teenage years when you were going through your process of socialization, upbringing and education. This is what we refer to as 'Somebody Training', where you were being trained to be a Somebody and modelled to be a Good Model Citizen and deserving of Widespread Social Respectability. As a result of this you developed - not by your own choice or even that of your parents - an Ego, a sense of self, a sense of identity. Please pay attention to the fact that in terms of Qultura your Ego - name, social position and status, and the various role attachments (your job, family role, and so on) are considered part of your karmic process and aren't that important in terms of the Qultura community. Somebody training is always a traumatic process, because you're expected to give authority to others, parents, teachers, the law, the Government, and as a result - inevitably, you lose your natural mindfulness (which you had as a small child) as it gets replaced by ideology and a set of social and cultural beliefs.

primary social interaction

The Qultura concept of Unmind

So having gone through the principles of change - reincarnation, karma and trauma - we get into the point of the Qultura community and dream weaving activities, which is where we get into the practical aspects of Qultura. Qultura developed out of Buddhism and has been created to address the exact same issues - attachment to physical form, to various beliefs, to various needs, desires, cravings, all of which you have been conditioned to see as normal through your process of socialization and Somebody Training. You have also developed a sense of separateness between yourself and your environment and other people, through which there's a sense of isolation, alienation, even marginalization. Your Ego is a reinforcement of separateness and boundaries. Then there's the reality of your death, and all the fear and anxiety you have of death.

Qultura shares with Buddhism, Taoism, Hatha yoga and other methods of developing consciousness and mindfulness the same understanding of reincarnation, trauma and karma. But what is different is the approach taken to get past the Ego, the trauma and the suffering. Unlike these other methods Qultura does not offer you a method. Qultura methodology is a complete methodology of mystical principles. You see the one important thing when it comes to Qultura and the Qultura community is the Principle - which is your individual conscious perspective. This has got nothing to do with your Ego because it comes out of your memory. Giving you a method to work with is generally unhelpful. You see nobody else is you, nobody else can be you, nobody else shares your reality or has to deal with life in your terms.

Therefore instead of giving you a method, we give you a complete methodology, free access to a developing community, mystical resources, and you have to create your own unique Qultura methods from somehow putting it all together. The only real issue you have to deal with when it comes to Qultura is embracing the fact that you don't need a belief system at all because your life happens independently of what you think or believe and you always have an individual conscious perspective of what's going on in your life. Therefore you have to decide for yourself whether you're willing to take full responsibility for what goes through your mind and developing your individual conscious perspective, or you can carry on as you have probably done until now and continue living on the basis of Ego and your belief systems. If you continue, then you need to accept that you will not have clarity of mind, you will never be free, and you will always have that fear of death somewhere at the back of your mind. It's your life, your reality, your mind, and always your choice what you do with all this.

This is how we arrive at the concept of Unmind - you cannot achieve mindfulness or develop conscious awareness through using your mind or thinking. Fire cannot burn fire, water cannot make water wet, light cannot illuminate light, a knife cannot cut itself. You can do all the meditation and yoga you like but if you're meditating and doing yoga with the intention of achieving mindfulness all you're doing is a bit of circus on the floor and pretending to be an acrobat. No amount of knowledge about chakras or kundalini will change that fact. You live on the basis of memory, you think with your memory, your mind is the empty space of perception, so to develop consciousness and mindfulness you have to be in a supportive environment - which brings us to the Qultura community.

The role of the Qultura community

You see the big issue when it comes to developing consciousness, conscious perspective and mindfulness is always social environment. You're never going to be free from your Ego because you need an Ego to live as part of society. This simple fact is what makes developing consciousness, conscious perspective and mindfulness so difficult and often so much hard work. You can only figure out who you are when you know who other people are. But when you're dealing with people with their own perspectives manifesting as different beliefs and ideologies, preconceived notions, expectations, assumptions, boundaries and divisions - which the vast majority of people have in society today, it becomes virtually impossible.

But see when you move into a different social environment where it's understood that everyone involved is in their own way trying to work out various factors and karmic issues going on in their lives then you get much, much closer to reality and your mind shifts in emphasis from Ego to individual conscious perspective. The process of developing a Qultura method isn't really any different from developing your Ego, the only difference is instead of seeking self-esteem and playing psychological mindgames with other people you're sitting around, talking, drinking tea and coffee, participating in dream weaving activities, all based on Primary Social Interaction. Without even thinking about it, or having to go into whatever trauma you've gone through in the past, you're developing conscious awareness and mindfulness simply from just being there and being involved.

You see you already have enough mystical insight from this page alone to have enough mystical insight and awareness to understand Qultura methodology on a basic level. You understand that all you need to do to develop a Qultura method is to turn up and participate in some way in the Qultura community. When you understand that your perspective or Principle determines your Process or how your life flows, and that your perspective is consciousness, your mind is space, and both consciousness and space are one and the same thing, then all you need to do is turn up or get involved and everything else will become clear to you.

The biggest mistake many people make when it comes to Qultura is expecting Qultura to have some definite shape or form, when Qultura is all about consciousness and space. There's two often repeated mystical principles here:

    All existence is change. All existence is relationship.

    The environment creates, the individual (organism) grows and evolves.

No form or organization is necessary because both existence and reality are impermanent and constantly changing. From a certain perspective the fact that everything is falling apart, collapsing, decaying, is a good thing, because it creates infinite opportunities and possibilities. Besides believing in permanence and continuity blinds you to reality and traps you into thinking about life rather than actually living. Throughout when developing Qultura I've been trying to deal with the conundrum of form or organization, because that's what everyone seems to expect. In the end I created Qultura Core which pretends to be an organization but is actually still the Qultura community. But see even when I created Qultura Core it failed twice to become a registered charity.

You see in being formless, and not being organized, where everything is created and made up on the spot, it disciplines everyone to deal with the present moment and to be yourself. Organizations come with hierarchy, rules, policies, out of which you get conflicts, politics and so on. But see when you don't have any of that and give everyone space to be who they are in reality everything works out fine and we all get along.
