The Creative Spiral

The Creative Spiral is not a system of thought, but a series of intentions that integrate into a cohesive network of interconnections that empower intention. Each of the eight stages are intentions known by feeling, that when interconnected by linking together in feeling-attention deepen each other the way the two views of our two eyes combine for depth perception. The Creative Spiral is a sensuous experience of deepening penetration of the movement of attention into the spaces of experience.

Free Your Psoas Walking into the Floor, Walkthrough 2014 2 17

Walking Into the Floor is the third somatic education exercise of the self-relief program, Free Your Psoas. This exercise coordinates and frees the psoas muscles, front of the thighs, and back muscles in movement patterns similar to walking. It integrates the core musculature of the pelvis and trunk as well as the superficial muscles commonly referred to as "core" -- the abdominals. 

As with all somatic education programs, this exercise depends for its effectiveness upon good results with the preceding somatic education exercises, Locating the Center of Breathing and Slide and Turn (which distinguishes the psoas muscles from the neighboring and more superficial gluteus minimus and rectus femoris muscles).

Time Fields

First thing:
Time is motion,
nothing more,
nothing else.

We use motion to "measure" time
but "mark time" is a better term.

The cycling of the seasons: a year
The turn of the Earth: a day
The interval between two heartbeats: the "second"
The phasing of the Earth's moon, 
The moving second-hand of an analogue clock as it passes fixed marks,
The changing numerical symbols of a digital clock,
The resonant vibration of a cesium clock,
The 1-0-1-0 cycling ("flopping") of a computer-CPU.

Your attention span.

Time is movement.

Gravity is all about movement.
It's described in terms of movement:
32 feet/second per second acceleration.
One second later, it's traveled 32 feet.
Two seconds later, it's traveled 80 feet
Three seconds later, it's traveled 141 feet.

Gravity is all about time.  Gravity is one of the four fundamental forces of the Universe.

We can now interpret "reality" in terms of movement.

Reality is conceived in terms of space and time.

The "and" is significant, here.

There is no time without movement,
and therefore,
no time without space.

There is also no space without time.

Only what moves is noticed,
and therefore,
measurable.

Movement is all-relative.

What is not moving, relative to us,
is not noticed by us.

And by "relative to us",
I mean "relative to the "hereness" of the "noticer".

The "noticer" -- that's you --
"hereness" -- that's where you always are,
wherever you are.

No movement, no noticing.
No noticing, no experience of time.

What we are noticing is what is moving, relative to us,
or we, moving relative to him, her, or it.

Memory is the sensor
of time fields.
It provides a means of making time conscious
by providing a way to compare (or measure)
change.
No memory,
to capacity to measure and record change.
 
Time fields
are strange attractors of attention.

Like gravity wells,
they draw us in
and we move toward them,
captured and captivated
by the experience of them
experienced in us.

They are time warps,
those strangely attractive events
that we experience as the events of life.

We are attracted,
according to our own uniqueness,
to certain kinds of experience
as the unfolding of our entelechy (developmental potential)
the maturation and development of us as unique selves.

Life is time of a special sort:
emergent time.

Life is the effulgent flowering
of the mundane events of our lives.

Each flowering
is strangely attractive,
captivating of our attention . . . . .
for a time.

And then we move on to another
strangely attractive event
that captivates our attention
moment to moment.

What makes entelechy,
the maturation (and emergence) of unique selves,
a special sort of time
is the emergence of it.

It is not yet cylical.  Things don't repeat.

The curve of our trajectory is still forming.

It is like the constant, Pi,
the relation of lengths
between the diameter and the circumference
of a circle,

also the relation
between the male (straight)
and the female (curved) --
same thing.

Pi never can completely be defined
because it is infinitely
finely
resolving,
never resolved
always fine-tuning
toward "the sweet spot" of exactness.

They've calculated Pi to some 5,000 digits
last I heard.

And it goes on.

Male and Female

Space is measured in time.

It takes time to determine the two ends of a span
and to measure the distance.
It doesn't happen instantly.

Measuring space requires time.

That's how time and space
are not time"and"space,
but two perspectives
or ways of looking at,
or ways of describing,
the same thing.


That said, time fields are all.

Our sense of time fields
is the sense of the experience of the moment.

Sometimes, time seems to drag;
sometimes, time seems to speed by.

A common observation
is that time -- the years --
is passing more quickly as time passes.

This acceleration of time
is curiously similar
to the acceleration of the expansion
of the Universe.

Life, for animate beings,
is timed by heartbeat,
breath,
digestive
and sleep cycles,
the lunar cycle,
the seasons.

for plants,
by temperature,
light,
climate and weather cycles.

Time fields are all.

Attention rests in time fields
and moves in time fields
and is made of time fields.

Time is the very substance of experience,
its duration,
its substantiality,
its rate of change.

Nothing "has" duration.
Nothing "has" substantiality.

Duration is the substantiality, itself.
No duration, no substantiality.

Movement is appearance.
No movement, no appearance.

No "thing" is changing,
The apparent existence of things
is change, itself.

Changing, or being in a changing circumstance, IS the thing,
even ordinarily regarded.

Time fields are all,
seen from various perspectives,
defined by those various perspectives.
calling into existence
the experience of "things"
by appearing to persist in memory.





New Gentle Spine Waves | for back pain | to elongate your spine




This somatic education exercise progressively develops control of the back muscles, and so relieves the pain caused by excessive tension. It’s relaxing. You should expect to feel changes in how you feel lying down, changes of back curvature, after the second complete practice session. Effects accumulate.

The movements create new muscle/movement memory, which replaces the muscle/movement memory that keeps your back muscles tight and predisposes you to back muscle spasms.
Do the exercise exactly as given, but always work within your comfort zone, as you get more out of it than if you’re cringing from pain or from fear of pain. The key is first to tighten the already-too-tight muscles to get control of them, then to relax in SLOW MOTION to maintain constant awareness of the sensations in the involved muscles.

Disc problems result from too-tight back muscles causing disc compression. | http://somatics.com/wordpress/chronic-back-pain/
 
Most sciatica comes from a combination of tight back muscles and tight waist muscles (side-tilt), which trap the sciatic nerve roots. | http://somatics.com/sciaticasymptoms-piriformissyndrome.htm

The Inside of SuperPandiculation | Evolutionary Integration (?)

The SuperPandiculation Technique
when applied within oneself
either in somatic education exercises
or in The Gold Key Release
or Memory-Matrix Integration Ritual
invokes or makes possible
a series of internally generated
awakenings, releases and self-corrections.

When applied in highly integrative movements
of some intricacy
(as in The Five-Pointed Star series or the simple, Gentle Spine Waves (video))
SuperPandiculation leads to a series of extraordinarily deep releases and self-corrections that together integrate into a pattern of greater integrity,
one with more and greater degrees of freedom.

That means, when we function, more of our resources are available
and new resources, new intelligence
so we function better.

The SuperPandiculation Technique
is otherwise known as
The Diamond Penetration Pandiculation Technique
because it penetrates through thick, dense
Sensory-Motor Amnesia and Sensory-Motor Obliviousness
the way a diamond drill bit penetrates through rock.

Sensory-Montor Amnesia
and Sensory-Motor Obliviousness are
in a broader and more basic sense
Attentional-Intenational Amnesia
and Attentional-Intentional Obliviousness

sensory | attention
motor | intention

amnesia
| broken, shaky, or compromised integrity |
a gap or weakening of integrity
~~ or ~~
obliviousness | immature development 
or unrecognized/undeveloped integrity potential.

It takes some intensity of attention to relink
or link for the first time
the intensity of a sensation
with the sense of 
being able to remember / imagine it accurately.
But that is exactly what must be done to come free --
to shift from automaticity (sub-cortical brain automated memory)
to intelligent control (higher-cortical intention supported by sub-cortical memory).

That's why use The SuperPandiculation Technique:
By boosting the power of attention,
it boosts the power of intention.
It's a Drill.  It's a Drill.  It's The Drill.
AND, this drill is your drill,
this Diamond Penetration Pandiculation technique.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When the intensity of imagining an experience intentionally
equals or exceeds
the intensity of experiencing the experience on automatic
. . . . .
when the two intensities match
and the two "experiencings" (actual and imagined)  match

then release occurs
as a merging, melting and reshaping that
triggers and wildly deepens
the the depth of release of the action
(of the pandicular movement),
culminating in a profound and moving release,
a re-arranging of oneself, wriggling and squirming,
or just lengthening, straightening, or untwisting,
in ways progressively more free of the old pattern
or to the degree of negligible or undetectable intensity
--  more free, altogether.

Meaning . . . . .
it's a big change.
One prepares for it in minutes,
it occurs in seconds,
and one doesn't tend to revert
to the old pattern,
so far away from it one is.

The changes, it seems
are cumulative,
each seeming to pick up
where the last left off.

I do believe that's called
"evolutionary integration."

All You Proto-Mutants, 
Out There . . . . .*

I'm Drilling for Gold!
