Spiritual Synthesis: Wisdom Singularity Flow Model

When we are struck by a thought we feel is truly profound, we tend to think of it as wisdom. On closer study, we also tend to find that it's recurring and universal. When the wisdom is benevolent, it harmonizes conflicting polarities and leads us to a level plane of balance and unity. Such elementary truths are the base fabric of our manifold fields of existence.

True wisdom is hungry for its own reality, reaching out into the universe to gain more wisdom from across time and space, from throughout the collective history of human civilization. This wisdom leads to a singularity of human knowledge — perhaps a curse, perhaps a blessing, perhaps an utopia, and perhaps nothing at all. The Wisdom Singularity Flow Model seeks to advance a sense of unity among the many strands of wisdom scattered around the world.

Adapting the model and providing a large amount of examples, this paper presents an overall profile of the overwhelming amount of elementary unifying factors in diverging systems of thought. It is free to use and re-work for any and all purposes that seek to unify scattered fields of insight. If you copy information from this paper, please remember to include a back-link, as its contents may be periodically revised to bring it closer towards the intended ultimate model of reconciliation.

≡ Barrel of Interwoven Infinity ≡
Whether we like it or not, we're stuck in a barrel with similar patterns recurring all over again, day in and day out, in diverse contexts. Unraveling these basic patterns is the key to human fulfillment and holistic evolution. The center of the wheel remains still.

Base of Existence: Interwoven Patterns and Cycles

The whole of the domain of natural science seeks the underlying patterns in nature's endless formations, charting the common patterns in planetary bodies, cells, molecules, atoms, and elementary particles. The concept of a Theory of Everything is a Holy Grail in the horizons of many a dedicated seeker and student of fundamental truths; grasping this underlying fabric of patterns would be nothing short of having a universal blueprint to consult. Since we are all looking at an essentially identical world, we will ultimately reach conclusions that are essentially similar. Triangulating the signals, we can begin to distill and deduct the central structure from a global network of colored reflections.

[4x] The entire world of physics is under the reign of the four fundamental interactions. Our planet has its bipolar axis and its four cardinal directions, our yearly cycle sticks obstinately to its ever-flowing seasons of change, and our lives begin and end in cycles of birth, growth, maturity and decay. The whole of our existence is orchestrated in the concert hall of elementary cycles and polarities. Every relationship in existence follows an underlying thread of logos. If there were no Gluons to help the Strange Quarks and the Charm Quarks dance along in tune, and if Quark and Anti-Quark lost touch with each other, Heaven and Earth would fall apart in an instant.

[2x] To speak nothing of the endless life-cycles in nature, we are hard-pressed to escape the two basic polarities of dynamic and static, light and darkness, life and death, right and wrong, Chaos and Logos, above and below — culminating as our fundamental experience of pleasure and pain. We adore the tale of the lover and the beloved, we find solace in the balance of motion and stillness, we learn from our fathers and our mothers, and we find a promise of continuity in the father and the son. Whatever the context, we always find ourselves faced with the same basic polarities, seeking for the wisdom of the fundamental patterns to better understand and relate to the specifics of our situation.

≡ Serapis, Sadashiva, Stupa and Octagon ≡
In ancient days, the world was vast enough to avoid the inevitable convergence of perspectives. When traveling, people would commonly pay homage to the gods of the locale, seeing them as functional equivalents. In today's global and networked society, it's getting awfully crowded.

Shared Human Quest: Shared and Unified Principles

Throughout human history, we have sought to chart and better understand these underlying patterns, the basic universals that would give us better bearings in navigating the stormy seas of life. This same quest has enveloped a vast number of fields of thought, from science to creative arts, from religion to psychology, from societal organization to astrology, seeking to distill a series of universal archetypes as the cardinal and ordinal directions of our reality.

While it has been a quest for essentially one objective, and while dozens of fields of thought have evolved with essentially similar observations and models for relating to the basic elements of their existence, they have been so shrouded by cultural particularity and individualistic pursuits as to become almost entirely incompatible with each other. More often than not, and particularly in the worlds of religion and spirituality, the conflicting divergence is a sign of losing sight of the underlying fundamentals that connect everything together — into the greatness of totality they conceive of as GodUniversal Spirit or One Mind.

These manifold systems of thought describe diverse facets of one totality of existence, and therefore always and invariably overlap in essential principles. The same essentials are clad in colorful clothes and known by countless names, applied in radically diverging fields of endeavor with equally diverging agendas. When stripped naked, we are left with one being with a body and a mind, two eyes, two brain hemispheres, four limbs, and eight cardinal and ordinal directions to take. Invariably, if only we choose broaden our perspective to see the forest from the trees, we will come to find that we are fundamentally in a great deal of agreement over the essentials.

For as long as we remain subject to the inevitable pull of Gravitation, the unswerving grind of the Weak Force, the energizing and mesmerizing flow of Electromagnetism, and the fundamental overdrive of the Strong Color Force, we rotate in the same and shared wheel of reality. Inasmuch as we cannot escape the atoms and the cells combining to form our bodies, we cannot escape the fundamental unity that connects our interwoven endeavors as sentient beings. The only fundamental separating us from a field of unity is the obsessive ego, our craving for distinction by means of separation from an underlying unity.

As we now live in an integrally interconnected and networked global world, with instant access to information across all cultures, a lack of understanding of the universality shared in our human pursuits has brought us to a world of escalating conflicts between apparently irreconcilable positions. With a shared platform of understanding being nothing short of an axiom of survival into the future, it stands to reason that we pay more attention to the basic principles underlying our shared reality in our search for solutions to the ever-increasing flux of information, exchange and conflicts emerging in the global human society.

Wisdom Singularity Flow Model: An Introduction

The system of the Wisdom Singularity Flow Model, featured earlier as the Wisdom Wheel arrangement, is principally based on the ancient Chinese model of Ba Gua, developed by Taoist and Confucian sages and scholars in the days of antiquity. The Ba Gua model has served as a useful base reference in charting the worlds of archetypal thinking, for it operates with basic and essentially mechanistic polarities and principles, without the heavy overlays of symbolism and cultural specifics that often shroud the wisdom from the millennia past. It is designed as a neutral and universal open-source model for study and reconciliation of diverse systems of thought.

In developing the Wisdom Singularity Flow Model, the basic structure has been compared and contrasted with more than two dozen noteworthy models of thought that feature essentially identical patterns, hierarchies, dynamics and derivative relations. These "compatible" traditions include Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hermeticism, Hinduism (Tantric, Puranic, Vedic), Buddhism (Hinayana, Mahayana, Vajrayana), Astrology (Western, Indic, Chinese), and a good number of connecting threads from diverse fields of Psychology, Biology, Computer science, and Particle/Quantum physics. They are all readily compatible with each other — at times down to remarkable principal detail — when laid out against a neutral frame of reference and observed without a specific agenda.

The intention of the Wisdom Singularity Flow Model is to provide a basis of understanding and reconciliation between conflicting fields of thought, whether in the realms of science, society, spirituality, entertainment, psychology, or any one of the countless other systems founded on basic principii we devise in improving our human situation. They need not live in a state of competition and conflict; if we are willing to forsake our obsessive attachment to minute particularity, the rewards of a harmoniously cross-referenced world of insight far outweigh the possible economical and egoistic losses suffered in the process.

≡ Wisdom Field Correlation Wheel ≡
The world is saturated with basic polarities and patterns. If we choose to see them
and reflect on their unity and compatibility, we can reach a state of balance and equilibrium.

Heaven + Earth = Basic Patterns | Lake + Mountain = Models and Methods of Estimation
Fire + Water = Detailed Material Methods | Thunder + Wind = Detailed Cognitive Methods

Basic Symmetries: Zero-One and Two-in-One

Religious and spiritual systems aim almost invariably for creating a fundamental state of balance that transcends the particularities of culture. They seek to advance the balance between Spirit and Matter, between God and Humanity, between Heaven and Earth, between Giving and Taking, and between whatever other labels these two fundamental polarities receive across diverse contexts and peoples.

[1x2] The interaction and exchange between the [+] Dynamis and the [–] Neutralis, the Creating and the Neutralizing, is at the heart of an ultimate spiritual communion and holistic experience of reality. As such, it is the active Axis Mundi of all religious and spiritual efforts. When existence is brought to a state of reconciled balance, the battle between Good and Evil is over. All foundational concepts of moral, ethical and theological good and evil have their roots in this fundamental dichotomy, a conflict between two opposite but complementary polarities in an endless flux of interaction and permutation.

[∞0] This universal balance of the two polarities is fueled by a Great Unknown, a Cosmic Singularity, a Wisdom Non-Duality, an undivided and immeasurable field of unity. This is the ultimate Singularity, the dimension where all other dimensions and phenomena cease to exist; it is the the exact and absolute zero point state of existence, where all of existence is unified into a non-dual strata of no knower, no known, and no knowledge. As such, it is the ultimate knowledge and the pinnacle of mystic union with the Uncreated God, the Universal Spirit, the Great Singularity, and the rest of its manifold labels.

All of mankind's contemplative and creative efforts, when they culminate, are geared towards discovering these ultimate components in their many combinations, and most of all, in their primal and elemental form as pure and timeless principii, a great unifying field that would yield infinite knowledge, infinite energy, infinite dimensionality, and an infinity of experience.

When these ultimate dimensions of reality are attained, the human mind is reposed in a field of perennial peace and tranquility. In practice, the unifying factors will begin to envelope the diversifying factors, establishing a natural sense of unity, shared prosperity and a natural balance of ethics. Therefore, it is entirely unreasonable to be so short-sighted as to hate others, to plunder or to wage wars in the name of religious purity and missionarism. In fact, religious wars are primarily waged over particularities that would be considered impurities in light of the pure heart of the religion's wisdom.

Conflicts between non-theistic, monotheistic and polytheistic vantage points emerge as aspects of a uniform totality become personified or abstracted for ease of access to particular audiences. They are all, of course, components of the same grand entirety of being, the Alpha and Omega of all existence, like a spectre looked at from an infinity of perspectives. While we may many paint many faces for the subsequent aspects of the one Immeasurable Ultimate, we are all after one ultimate field of unification and resolution for all of our shared reality.

 [∞] Singularity = {  [±] Balance = { [+] Dynamis, [-] Neutralis } }
As they mature and culminate, most systems of thought appear to reach a concept of
infinite ultimacy and golden balance while working with the two basic polarities.

Table #1: Basic Correlations in Systemic Models

The following is a table of 108 correlations between the ∞0 (Infinite Zero) and 1x2 (Universal Balance) principles, as found in diverse religions, mythologies and spiritual systems throughout the world and its millennia of recorded history. They are essentially identical in their function as the Great Unknown and Balance of Two Polarities that guide the heart of these formulations. This is a master list of fields that will be studied and cross-referenced in further detail in upcoming appendixes.

While there will invariably be diverging nuances in the interpretation of the exact relationships between the four basic elements of Singularity, Balance, Dynamis and Neutralis, their fundamental principles are identical enough to justify a level field of agreement. There are, after all, countless differences in the interpretation over levels of apotheosis and scopes of relationship and identity even within traditions themselves. Such disputes and disagreements tend to fall within the domain of theological pedantry and elitistic sophistry, and have little to do with the heart of the matter; the basic patterns tend to be relatively simple and elementary.

Sometimes the principal roles in formulations such as these are seen to mirror each others' qualities, because Dynamis always holds a seed of Neutralis and vice versa. They are both rooted in the same Primal Unity, and reveal different emphases in accordance with the observer's perspective and projections. This easily turns Good into Evil, Gods into Demons, Messiahs into Antichrists, filtering through the narrow human lense unable or unwilling to contextualize against a broader perspective. Despite this, the direct and elementary reality underlying names and forms — once experienced and immersed — is eerily identical in nature. The experience itself naturally points to a fundamental underlying unity in all archetypes and purposes.

In advancing this quest for unity, symmetry and synergy in reconciling human perspectives, the above opening four-part grid should provide a useful starting point of general correlations in making headway towards a better reconciled world. This model is presented in the spirit of open-source conceptual development and evolution. The intention is not to introduce artificial universals or forced correlation; the model aims to serve in accurately reflecting the fundamental principles of diverse traditions of thought. Therefore, it should be subject to critique and revisions wherever necessary.

"Venus Dancing in Light and Shadows" — A fresh winter morning perspective
in a composite picture of the Morning Star, Planet of Reconciled Polarities.

Poetic Conclusions: Call for Balance and Feedback

The groundwork for this paper began with inspiration on the 10th of October, 2010, gazing at the skies through the crisp night air in late autumn of Helsinki. It was a beautiful clear sky, and Venus was particularly bright that night — almost frozen in her twinkle at the sky with her two horns raised, her two arms spread, and skirt of rays flowing below. Like the Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Greeks knew Venus as both Phosphoros, Morning Star and Bringer of Light, as well as Hesperos, Evening Star and Son of Dusk. The Hellenistic world realized their unity and named the planet after Aphrodite, their goddess of love. It's hard to argue against a Bipolar Planet of Love on the need for balance on 10-10-10 at 10 PM on a tranquil night.

Then, Venus is Love and Balance with Dynamis and Neutralis married; Hesperus is Phosphorus, Form is Emptiness, One Father is One Son, One Allah with One Will, while Yin and Yang dance on the plateau of Singularity. It does not have to be awfully complicated, if only we are willing to take a step beyond our complicated and entangled perspective, reaching for the fundamentals of our existence — whether the Four Directions, Four Interactions or Four Archangels, whether for the Father and Son, for the God and Goddess, or for other primal symbols of our preference. We are all after the same universal aims; let us make the most out of our collective human potential, seeking to unify more than diversify. Unification leads to Singularity, and Diversification leads to Entropy.

Readers interested in the concepts and models of this paper are cordially invited to provide liberal feedback — critique, compliments, contributions and clarifications are all equally welcome. More detailed explanations of the variables and relations in Table #1 will be available in an interactive model at the Systemic Spirituality website. Upcoming overviews of Wisdom Singularity Flow Model will discuss the 4x and 8x spheres, the four cardinal levels and the eight principal spokes of the Wisdom Wheel, exploring many (but certainly not all) of the systems of thought referenced in this paper.

Until the next installment in the phenomenal derivation of the Wisdom Singularity Flow Model, readers interested in more angles into this model are welcome to follow the Systemic Spirituality page at Facebook or join our LinkedIn discussion group for more in-depth exchanges on many of these themes, along with a general platform for discussing anything Beyond, Between, Above or Below and that may be relevant. More on "BBAB", linear molecules and the rest in the course of next week.

The illustrations have been uploaded in high resolution. Please click on images to get a better view --- Blogger seems to blur and degrade the images a good deal when they are resized and compressed.

Updated to version 1.1.0 with a number of links, minor corrections to the table, and some editing of the text for improved clarity. Please keep sending in your feedback!

Mr. Ananda ∴ μ α ω λ said...

Update 1.1.1: Tidied things up, expanded the full list of factors under the main Wisdom Flow diagram. Added anchors to the main headings of the table; you can now link to them directly, just click on a heading (like "Indic Religion") to pass on a link directly to the right view.
