Holonity: The World of Magic and The Magic Circle – by Andreas N. Bjørndal


How can we understand the World of the Magician and use it for our self-development today? Let us take a step back in history first.
.
If you go back a few hundred years many people did not know how to read, they did not spend much of their life within the field of knowledge. Reading, reflecting, thinking, learning facts etc. was a rare activity for the few.
People could not conduct their own life as we can today. They were born with limited possibilities of education with no hope of change of social position or class. Today people in the modern world can learn and achieve almost anything. We have entered into a state of increased autonomy or ability to conduct and create our own life.

The Magnetic Sense – by Andreas N. Bjørndal


Science has, over the last decades, discussed and tried to prove a human magnetic sense or magnetoreception. All the way from bacteria through many different animals in the chain of evolution all the way to mammals have proof of magnetic orientation abilities as well as the presence of magnetite in different body parts that could explain the phenomenon.

Experiments with blindfolded humans turned around and even placed far into the woods not knowing where they were and asked to point towards “home” indicated they had an unknown sense of direction.

The Secret of Your Feet – by Andreas N. Bjørndal


The feet are perhaps the most neglected part of your body. Many people use their feet so little that they degenerate quicker than any other part of the human economy. Grown ups with athletes feet, dry skin, corns, cracks in the soles, fungi on the nails of the feet or deformed toes are very common. On the other side, we have people without arms that have learned to use the feet as hands and are able to do amazing things with them.

External physical nature is easy to observe and relate to. The internal world is so subtle that many people doubt its existence.
.
The outer nature is easy to perceive because it is material, consisting of different components or parts and it has a strong deterministic or causal element. We can touch nature, we can discern stones, plants and animals and we can predict outcomes from experience and knowledge. In short you can say we are on top of it. We observe it as from the peak of the mountain and our intelligence can understand it.

.
Yes, you can sense your own thinking as well as the thinking of another. Last month, we explored the sense of words but even deeper than words is the perception of concepts. We did not discriminate it much last time. Now, we are ready to look into this more subtle level. For some people the level of words is what they relate to. To perceive the other person’s way of thinking is to get beyond the words, to get even closer to the core of their identity.
When Descartes formulated “cogito ergo sum” he understood the close connection between the thinking and the awareness of an individual’s identity.

Do you want to improve your sense of speech? Is there a sense of speech?

We have more than 5 senses as we are exploring in this series. One of the most obvious is the sense of balance. ( See links to other articles below). There is a difference between the sense of movement and the sense of balance. The first gives us a sense of our joints, muscles and bones when we move and is also called the sense of proprioception. The child develops that from rolling, crawling and walking and feeling the presence of its own body from within. You can read more about it in the link below.
