Basics of Feng Shui: The Art and Science of Sensing the Energies is an introduction into a perennial science that originated from the ancient Chinese practice of arrangement of space, which is claimed to achieve harmony with the environment. There is scientific evidence now that feng shui is effective and not just a belief system, as astrology is not a belief system. Feng shui is a science of the bioenergy and perhaps the oldest distillation of this holistic knowledge.While feng shui is practiced as a business in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore for the construction of houses and offices, it has to be seen that this is only the pragmatic branch of a larger body of science that really deals with all living and how human beings relate to the greater realms of plants, animals, water, rivers, mountains, and generally to the cosmos. While systems theory now reveals our total interconnectedness, the Chinese knew this more than 5,000 years ago, and feng shui is one of many manifestations of this age-old holistic knowledge about the connective patterns between humanity and the whole of the cosmos. 1.

The Secret Science: The Huna Knowledge of the Cosmic Energy Field Scholarly Articles, Vol. 19, 2017, is a scholarly article for both neophytes and professionals on the subject of the Huna knowledge of the cosmic energy field.The author first asks what the motivation might be to studying Huna at all, and he comes to the conclusion that Huna is both a religion and a science, thus has prepared the path for the ultimate new age science that we now see emerging. The article elucidates that we have a heretic knowledge tradition also in our culture that did know about and actively research the cosmic energy field as well as the human energy field.The author analyses the works of Carl-Gustav Jung, Paracelsus, Swedenborg, Mesmer, Reichenbach, Reich, Lakhovsky and Burr on the subject before he expands in detail about the Secret Science of the Kahunas, the natives of Hawaii. The analysis is actually stunning as it clearly shows that the Kahunas had long ago the knowledge about life we are now heading into through systems theory, quantum physics and discovery of the unified field. Hence, our ´´new science´´ is a return to the oldest of sciences We have holistic knowledge traditions in our own culture and in Huna. Other native cultures also have all very old holistic science traditions. The article comes with a complete glossary and bibliography. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Fritz Walter.

Basics of the Science of Mind: The Twelve Branches of the Tree of Knowledge (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 18), 2017, is a scholarly article that demonstrates how our science could look like if it was really holistic and integrative. The ´´Science of Mind´´ is an idea propagated by new-thought authors who have explored the frontiers of science comparing it with the ancient knowledge base of the Hermetic tradition. The author has retraced the boundaries of such an all-encompassing and integrative science and found an astonishing parallel to the ancient idea of a ´´Tree of Knowledge´´ that has 12 branches, which are: Science and divinationScience and energyScience and flowScience and gestaltScience and intentScience and intuitionScience and knowledgeScience and patternScience and perceptionScience and philosophyScience and truthScience and vibrationThe article comes with many references from science books and with a complete bibliography. 1.

Sane Child vs. Insane Society: Some Thoughts on Education (2017) is a scholarly article that contends that children are born sane and are rendered more or less insane by an educational system that, till now, considers the human being as the impossible human - that is, a creature that is basically faulty and has to be improved and upgraded by education and morality.The present view opposes this age-old educational paradigm and shows that traditional education brings about fragmentation, ignorance, and widespread violence. The article emphasizes the natural integrity and wholeness of the small child, who is by nature a systems thinker. The article is a shortened version of the author’s book Creative-C Learning: The Innovative Kindergarten (2015/2017), in which the author emphasizes the need for teaching emotional awareness to teachers and presents techniques to be applied in the vocational training for early childcare workers and preschool teachers that teach how to cope with stress and that show the details of the trust-building process both between teachers and students and between parents and teachers.The audience for this article is all those involved in educating children as well as educational policymakers, parents, educational associations, politicians, pediatricians, child psychologists, and the lay public, especially those who are looking for a new way to educate children now and in the future. 1.

Patterns of Perception: Preferred Pathways to Genius deals with an important topic both for science and spirituality: direct perception. How do humans perceive reality? Is there something like a universal reality, one that is valid for all of us, or is reality always personal? And how does the memory surface work? Is our school system the right one, or do we have to implement fundamental changes so as to mold our school system after the way our brain learns? Would that not be the most intelligent way of doing it?The author tried to answer these questions in this essay, taking reference to Eastern spiritual traditions as well as Western scientific thinking, with a special focus upon Herbert James Campbell’s neurological research on preferred pathways and the pleasure function, as well as Edward de Bono’s remarkable research about the nature of the human memory surface.What became clear after general brain research and the special focus upon preferred pathways was the rather astounding coincidence between these scientific findings about super-effective whole-brain learning and associatively linked memorization patterns, on one hand, and the way geniuses learn, as it’s documented by biographical genius and polymath research, on the other.Information can be found, for example, through biographical research on the lives and almost miraculous learning capacities of Leonardo da Vinci, Giordano Bruno, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Albert Einstein, and many others. And this then leads to the insight that there is about nothing less effective in terms of learning output than our current mainstream school system, as it virtually suffocates the human brain and besides, invalidates and impairs the right-brain hemisphere, which leads to the result that we face worldwide millions if not billions of deficient thinkers. 1.
