PART 3 of
The 'INFORMATION AGE' and its Evolution into the 'Holographic Age'
Challenges and Realistic Goals For Survival and Creating A Desirable Future"


         "THE ROLE OF INTUITION COMING HOME" is "Part 3" of the 4 parts of the original essay, EVOLUTION TRENDS, which presents a projection of trends based on a system outlined in the "Basis of Assessment" section, and as described in "Seven Phases of Evolution" [added to that page Nov'09]. Section additions to the essay have been noted in the main page's introduction, including a scan of the August 1995 (hand-written) paper. Subsequent edits in the original essay have been put in brackets, dated, etc.
         Later added sections to "The Role of Intuition..." include A Summary 'On Point' added Dec'13 (on both pages), and a Related Pages section. Summary Outline of "Scientific Research On the Limbic System - Co-Enveloping the Ventricles" - and with some excitement actually.
         That is, the Limbic system is essentially *one with* the 3rd ventricle as it is with the top of the 4th, while intimately enveloped by the (two) lateral ventricles -- that are also just under the cingulate, the limbic component that has more recently (2003+) been shown as one of, if not the, most essential brain components for the mind-body integrative function (eg: including emotional, empathic, or interpersonal, which it integrates - via the limbic system).
         Note that it is the ventricles which were noted in 1995 as would be found central to the role of the "Grail-System," "Grail-enhanced minds," or "Grail Mind." (So, we're getting close. AND there are implications to that.) [July-Aug'16]
         This eclectic symbolic "Holy Grail" -- put in context with the rest of the ChaliceBridge site -- refers to the "Inner Chalice" of all beings, and it refers to a path towards attaining our highest potentials, and that can be for persons of any spiritual path or religion. The metaphor of the chalice, a) relates to actual energy dynamics within living beings (according to certain healing arts perspectives, ancient yet still widely practiced in the East, as well as by many Five Element and Ayurveda-based acupuncturists and other practitioners in the US), and b) is just one of many paths, means, or vehicles that one may use for that (path of attainment of highest potential) - for a time or a whole lifetime. Likewise, the terms "Grail-enhanced mind" or "Grail-Mind" refers to the higher/ highest potentials of ones brain, mind, or consciousness.

        We are now just past what I referred to as "the next decade" (in the original "Evolution Trends" paper), wherein so much was/continues to be determined about how - and how soon - we begin this next age - or if we do - before the planet (otherwise) overhauls itself. But IF AS we do get through all that, given sincere efforts toward our highest potentials...
        "... We will have the unique opportunity to learn first-hand from the most hi-tech, research data-backed, psychological ...Awareness on/of the various levels & interrelationships between these areas... intuition may find an unprecedented role ...its popular integration with the more logical approaches ...various systems of 'Integrated Diagnostics' will be developed..." and much, much more. (Excerpts from the essay below.)
        I believe in the "100th Monkey" threshold effect, where, in this case, what we might now call "Miracles" would be (events) described "simply" by enough of us beginning and/or continuing to do what we know in conscience that we need to do - until that threshold effect makes it relevant to us that we have brought the rest of humanity on board the Earth Steward Ship. - cp, Dec'11

          Will the physician and the medicine woman marry, and bring together the mind and heart of society ? Or has society been holding some unconscious association between the imagination of youth (maybe becoming a piercing intuition) and the rebellion to established authority ? Will there be found an art to science, logic to intuition, or teamwork to societal management ? If so, how will it happen ? What would that be like ?

         In previous ages we may have had great use of the intuition, and more recently we've seen a much expanded growth and use of intellectual logic. Soon we enter the age of the balancing of the brain's hemispheres. I call the vehicle for this balancing the "Grail System" because of its relation to the striving for yin-yang or male-female balance that is inherent in the symbolism of the Holy Grail, or Chalice, in spiritual teachings and myths. The Holy Grail was/is the cauldron of the transforming fire, the source and meaning for the multi-level power struggle (re: paternal/maternal, God/Goddess, science/religion, church/state, etc.) initiated in the middle ages, and told through the story of Camelot and the search for the lost grail. In essence then, we have the grand opportunity to recover the Holy Grail, to regain our balance in male-female relationships, both internally and externally.

[ More recently the grail has been interpreted as the womb or female holder of the bloodline of Christ. But (I maintain that) in the perspective of 'balance in the universe' - both Male AND Female energies, via the charge of opposite polarities - form the vortex of the chalice as the vehicle of human-to-divine transformation - cp, 2'07 ]

         In the development of the holographic age intuition will have a most grand and unprecedented opportunity. Something revolutionary is going on relative to left/right brain, or WHOLE BRAIN evolution. Right now there is a great deal of polarization between two groups - those who believe that the right brain's intuition doesn't work well in the environment of the left brain's analysis and logic (see below regarding analysis, distortion, mediation, and the "Grail System"), and those who believe that intuition is a dreamer's tool for self delusion relative to scientific medicine. There is a growing number of views in between, but not much sophistication on the matter of whole brain integration until very recently.

         What we'll possibly manifest in the next 20 to 50 years will blow the doors down -- between the left and right hemispheres -- in the very halls of science. This will not happen due to the massive testimonial or empirical evidence, but mainly because of our developing bio-cognitive capabilities for systematizing the use of intuition, and there-by functionally integrating it with more logical systems of diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and the planning there of. In 30 years the Whole Systems Approach of today will be as primitive as Western surgery procedures of the 1800's is now.

         I am referring to the human brain's development of a type of data organizing or systematizing ability that will change how right-brain or non-linear perception is a) viewed, and then b) processed and stored, so to make it more broadly applicable in whole-brain process. There will be a resulting enhancement in mind-body, mind-emotion, and conscious-super- conscious mind "relationships," as well as in communication between the different processing centers in the brain. Creativity will literally take on another dimension.

         Intuition has been described as the capacity to access and integrate logical data, thus indicating that the data is already somewhat pre-formed (and left-brain accessible) information. But that description alone does not sufficiently account for the experience of most people who consciously use their intuition fairly often. With sufficient development of the "Grail System," there will be an increase in the ability to access and juggle right brain perceived data -- consciously, but every so subtly. The right-brain's random-sorting and selection process -- for "where" the perception in directed and what it focuses on -- as well as the aspect of diffused focus, will actually be predictable to a useful degree, given certain criteria that we will be capable of managing in useful situations.

         The criteria includes knowing the person(s) being worked with in terms of their own experience and current intuitive process and current factors affecting their psycho-emotional process -- in short, how and why they do what they do. These criterions will be allowed for in, and further developed by, the Holographic Modeling function of the Integrated Diagnostics (described in previous section). This includes -- to a useful degree -- the aspect of unpredictability, due to, well, to a soul's somewhat unpredictable plan for it's personality level of existence.

         "The Grail System" serves as the universal energy balancing mechanism and perceptual data sorter for mind-body consciousness. While this system has always existed, it is one whose capacity multiplies with development. This comprises four systems on four levels, including the nervous, endocrine, circulatory (including lymphatic), and respiratory systems, and on the physical, emotional, mental, and bio-magnetic levels. Most emphasized are the upper endocrine glands and the cerebral spinal fluid channels. The ventricles serve (almost literally) a central role, with the system utilizing their fluidity, content, density, and location for containing the heart of the multi-level data-coordination process. More than for other areas of the nervous system, the bio-magnetic resonance upon this location, (due to the structure and function of surrounding tissues, including the shape and movements of the skull itself) contributes toward the sorting, "gelling," and infinite reformation and refinement in the BALANCING of energies.

    [NOTE: The (two) lateral ventricles of the brain intimately envelope the Limbic system as the later is essentially *one with* the 3rd ventricle as it is with the top of the 4th, extending back and down into the cerebellum and brain stem. From an anatomical text reference: "The thalamus (central to the limbic system) is a dense nucleus that bulges into the third ventricle from each side. The thalamus serves as a central relay station for sensory impulses ascending from other parts of the nervous system to the cerebral cortex." The top-most component of the limbic system, the cingulate, has more recently (2003+) been shown as one of, if not the, most essential brain components for the mind-body integrative function (eg: including emotional, empathic, or interpersonal, which it integrates - via the limbic system). More on this and related aspects below in the section, "Limbic, Ventricle, Grail System" including scientific research on the limbic system NOTE that the A Summary 'On Point' section further below (added Dec'13) - includes a (sidebar thumblink) reference to the "Fascia Memory System". Which ALSO relates to the limbic system, and thereby, to the ventricles, albeit from the proprioceptive or sensory somatic system, that is, from the body's connective tissues, mainly the fascia of the musculature, but including the internal organs. EG: one source of intuition, yes? And THAT write-up is very grounded in neurosensory-based research. (Aug'16, Sept'17).]

         This balancing serves every level of awareness conceivable while one's consciousness is still connected to one's body. Hence, the mediation aspect whose potential provides for a type of objective monitoring and analysis of ongoing intuitive spread-tracking -- but without the mind's usual "need" to categorize or limit data in time, space, or any fixed way ("Suspended Analytion" ?). The latter can easily distort the holographic perception of the intuition. Even so, the development of these functions will also greatly expand the processes that we now refer to as analysis. As far as I know, there is no actual recognition of all of these particular functions or as collectively related to any system.

         Grail-enhanced minds working with Holographic Modeling will have the ability to effectively compute and juggle complex probabilities, including multi-level, multi-factor cause and effect relationships involving the most unpredictable systems - including human beings. The ability to evaluate -- without the attachment to perceiving someone as good or bad, more or less worthy of love -- is critical to the Grail System's continued development to this level of effectiveness. In fact, the reason that many "intuitives" will argue that analysis is destructive to the intuition, is because of the harm that has been experienced due to the misuse of "judgment." I refer to the tendency to poo-poo the imagination of young minds.

         Such imagination would (otherwise) naturally facilitate openness to a relatively unhampered, and therefore potentially pure, insight -- into and through many "problems" that can plague a comparatively fixed adult perception. Why have we been so insecure in our reactions to such productive activity, or have we too often interpreted it as a kind of rebellion to authority? (Note that history has taught us that occult practice can be severely punishable.) And yet, true "whole brain" potential does not forsake the value of science or forego the capacities of the logical mind, but co-opts these for it's optimal performance. And the most effective analysis will utilize the intuition.

[In his book, *No Boundary* Ken Wilber elaborates on what we would now call the "Left/Right brain split" and the psycho-spiritual significance of history and the evolution of consciousness during those periods. His chart, "Therapies and Levels of "The Spectrum of Consciousness'" has been included along with the section, "'The Lords of Culture' and Listening - A story about Language, Relationship, and the Body-Mind Split" (7/31/10 by yours truly) and related implications at the Chalice Art page (in the section, "A Relationship Between the Dramatic Rise in Popularity of the Holy Grail/ Chalice Media and the Desire for Pragmatic Balancing of Extremes?"). This note added July 2010]

          The Rebirth of the intuition is thus seen to happen due to three developments: 1) the breakdown in the above noted polarization regarding intuition; 2) the assessment and analysis of how intuition works, by a very broad range of (computer equipped and/or accessed) talented individuals in research and practice, who are working together in labs, offices, and/or via the internet. The Institute for Noetic Sciences is currently one of the organizations better known for this focus. A growing number of Internet discussion lists and web sites are already in the initial stages of this process. 3) The (much further) development of the "Grail System" in the human body-mind (see below).

         Should this be interpreted to imply that the primary capabilities of human intuition would or could ever be analyzed to the point of it being replicated, synthesized, or even marginally computerized? My first reply: certainly not for many centuries of human maturation. And yet something said my answer was too simple. So I am led to believe that this issue will be the point of another great debate -- and probably near the end of the next century [referring to 2000-2099], when it may appear to many (as per our enormous capacity for self-delusion) as technologically feasible. Fears will be raised by those who see the intuition as sacred (as related to their spiritual connection); enough so to want to protect it from unwarranted tampering by the psycho-physicists (!) and psycho-geneticists of the day.

         The covert research into psychism and related technologies has failed in many accounts due to the nature of the intention for using the results of the research, and the nature of the kind of decision-making process that is used by/for those who work under those conditions. Much effort has been oriented towards the incorporation of individuals who are more "pure in intention" (and naïve to the purposes of the research) to counter this glitch, but as the new physics has shown, observance of phenomena affects the phenomena observed, thus rendering it suspect if not useless. This is especially applicable in such subtle fields as related to the intuitive function. As a result, this field kind of has its own protection, yet apparently there is plenty of room for hard lessons for hard heads.

         As we get our ethical/spiritual act together, these limitations will be surpassed. (I'm not betting, however, on the computer/bio-mechanical simulation of the intuition anytime, or century, soon.) As noted in earlier sections of this writing, we are only in the third level or chakra (of seven) -- the Information/Manipulation age -- in our evolution, and hopefully the latter part of it. [ This third level or chakra is put in context in the "Seven Phases of Evolution" outlined at the "Evo-Trends" essay, to which writing this sentence refers ] And there will be the temptation to mis-use power (relative to "perfect" at-one-ment of all powers) until the whole of the planet evolves well past the Holographic [4th chakra] level -- all people, even on our very worst days, so to speak. That, according to most arcane/esoteric authorities, will not be for a few centuries or more -- further along in the Kali-yuga (26,000 year cycle). Even then, we will have temptation (and thereby much of our learning) for a kind of power abuse, but not as we currently experience it.

         Will Intuition actually "come home" to the earth plane? Do we want it to? Will we ever learn to stop polarizing our perception by comparing the worth of people? Our brains (or their ventricles) follow our hearts, and our hearts are torn between whatever divisions there are between our own minds and (how we conceive) the mind of God. Eventually, much of the current mystery or mystique around the use of our intuition -- and related elitism -- will be traded in, transformed for a more useful regard of our whole brain, whole heart capacities and their purposes -- and for OUR purpose.

The Holy Grail as a Bridge
Added Jan'13

    I would like to suggest your considering the bodily energy centers (or chakras) as power transformers of divine energy for human use, then considering those energy vortexes forming chalices (see "Chakra Tree Anatomy" pic further below). You might visualize the meeting of ascending & descending energy vortexes, as well as the horizontal extension of vortexes crossing left & right (into the plane of matter, on to/as "the cross" of our existence). Given that, this chalice would be a bridge between the Higher Powers and one self.
    Thus taken as a metaphor, if one relates the grail quest to a search for perceived lost capacities in that bridge... The implications of the "Holy Grail" story and character roles, purpose and meaning, all changes somewhat from the popular version, and would then relate to courage, love, and spirituality, philosophy, and even politics in a much more useful way.

    Now, if you will, consider the history of western religion - the dramatic changes of the first 1300 years AD , and thence to more recent events. How about the Dark Ages as related to a damaged bridging function, or the violent split that occurred between science, philosophy, and "The Church" ? IE: The aspect of *balance* with regard to *extremism*, individually and communally, and Love's place in all that.

   The "bridging" function strengthens the connectivity, thereby the effective context, of each point within the optimal working whole (of Humanity, in this case). That's also one way of describing the basis of Gestalt Psychology, by the way.

    But those are only a few of the metaphors that extend from the chalice archetype and grail-related history, which are detailed at the "Chalice Integration Arts & Sciences" page. Where I also have the bio for how this art developed, related notes on sacred geometry, and more.

Chakra Tree Anatomy in Chalice Garden-FAA-Framed

        The above piece is entitled, "Chakra Tree Anatomy in Chalice Garden" over "Trees of Light" from pi-ratio rays, over a background created from a garden-rendered "chalice tapestry" overlaying the original Chalice design (1986). Chakras were created from Multi-Vortexes arranged in sacred geometric proportions - and form each of those multi-color-dimensional energy centers (each of which are a form of chalice, all of which also form a chalice - "As above, So below", and so it just keeps on going!) - Christopher Pringer, ChaliceBridge.Com, Oct-Nov 2012.

        The picture is also a (smaller sized) sample of the kind of framed preview for the artwork at my gallery at Artist Websites of Fine Art America. There, you can choose the art piece you want to check out in large view, your choice of frames, matting, paper, and/or other mountings or greeting cards that are available, and the site will display it in that setting.

A Summary 'On Point'
& some added prognostications   (Added Dec'13),
And more pertainently, some suggestions for research

[ NOTE: There are a number of links to other pages here. For best context,
keep reading here, go there later and/or open the links in another tab(s), especially considering
there are more references to those pages in the sidebar and further below on this page.]

First, some related notes from other sections of "Evo-Trends" for context:

          * "...The idea of holographic inter-reflectiveness ...multiple-probabilities planning... Using computer generated graphics programs that show 3-dimensionally, the relational and changing dynamics between rated probabilities, complex planning can be facilitated simultaneously by a number of disciplines involved in solving the multiple- discipline challenges. This ...resulting in a tremendous surge in the application of creativity. ...From these probability scenarios ...This is assuming that the genetics research will make this bio-technically feasible, that the related ethics "insearch" has provided clarity as to man's readiness to consider such uses of power..." [from "Some Trends And Developments In Health & Environment"]
          * "...Already there has been decades of research ...into many areas of technology that most people call science fiction. This includes ...genetic research on humans ..." [from "Introductory Period"]
          * "...Many areas of medicine will engender the same degree of bio-ethics controversy as has the now fledgling genetic research, due to ...much of it increasingly based on consideration of patients' subtle energy and belief systems. ...Just what potential the human is capable of ...a question of critical perspective and even controversy ...debated in both physiological and psychological ...sectarian circles, ...the original nature of man [as] "perfect or imperfect." ...The debate will engender a broad public awareness of internal belief systems and multi-dimensional cause-and-effect relationships and dynamics, it will stir even more the issues originally brought up by the genetic research. This will be due to a complex interplay of factors, especially the developments of Integrated Diagnostics and related approaches..." [from "Some Trends And Developments In Health & Environment"]
          * "... As society becomes more practiced at RECONCILING THE PAST, ...One of the benefits will be the realization ...leading to a heightened overall application of intelligence, , hence, increased creativity, productivity, and growth..." [from "Psycho-Social Transition & Rehabilitation"]


      The "Recovery of the Holy Grail", to put it in brief, is largely about, and would initiate through, the balancing of the left & right brain capacities, of mentality and emotionality, of related systems and capabilities including the full appreciation of our masculine and feminine natures, however those are *healthfully* distributed and manifesting within and for an individual; IE: regardless of orientation and/or genetic make-up, or whether sexually straight, gay, or otherwise, but healthfully and happily so in any case. All of which generally enhances EQ (emotional intelligence) which enhances data access related capabilities as well as creativity, and thus IQ - all in a healthy balance. That also implies/requires a certain goodly amount of neuro-endocrine (including neurotransmitter) healing balance to begin with. From a transpersonal psychology point of view, the balance of right & left brain requires integration of the "emotional body", and is the homework for development of ones lower chakras or energy centers, as prerequisite to further development of the higher centers, sufficient to render the "Grail". [Find Elaboration on EQ at the "Body-Mind Integration Essays" page;

     Find Dr. Daniel J. Siegel's resources as, perhaps the most pragmatic and organized path for consciously working in this direction (that I know of yet) for the average student of health and healing (lay and professional) in the Limbic/Ventricle section below.
      Perhaps the most direct interface for the individual for all the above is the "Work/Rest Ratio" as relates the *full range of tension potential* in the musculature to, (to put it in the most brief terms) the management of emotional memory as related to that tension. That is elaborated at the "What's Different About Tensing Yoga" section at that page, as "Tensing Yoga" is designed to work with the variation in range of tension in the musculature and (depending on intention and approach with muscles retaining effects of injury and/or over-conditioning). Also, Important are the aspects summarily referred to in the "Muscle Q & A" section of the Body-Mind Integration page. And all that is neurobiologically explored, charted, anatomically illustrated (as much as possible), and referenced with extensive research at/via the "Fascia Memory Theory" and "Fascia Memory Project" pages, the later also being a highly organized proposal for in-depth research. All pages interconnected in purpose to assist in understanding the body-mind integrative personal growth process therapies through developing a pragmatic body-mind awareness, and the resulting long-term preventive maintenance capabilities.
[ Just to remind, for best context, keep reading here, go there later and/or open in another tab(s), as more references to those pages just below and in the sidebar.]

      How much of which of those phases would be achieved through A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) or genetic manipulation, NanoTech, etc? Not much, I think. Not that we won't (continue to) try to use that for bolstering of intelligence (as well as for increased data access). But these types of approaches have been much more about a short-term, adrenal, immediate gratification-orientated system, based in hi-structure (thence fear) motivation, paid for by those who believe that is what works (albeit so they can collect more toys and/or power).

      The A.I. /Nano Tech approach will appeal to those concerned about a lack of full physical capacity, perhaps holding Stephen Hawking as a role model. Not that I think Mr. Hawking would encourage all this, and not just because he hasn't gotten his physical mobility back. My point is, dreams have always been played upon for short term appeal. To Note: Sister Clarice of Caprica using A.I., then encouraging evolution of A.I. beings for war against humans, in the tv series "Caprica." Wherein the "Cylon" robots become androids, and it's really all about the non-vs-sectarian politics mixed in with and battles in lead up to the "Galactica" and "Star Wars" series. (Lots of interesting allagories *to learn from* there, IMO - far more psychologically layered and complex (both the A.I. ethics element and the story in general) - with the dark and light sides not so easily distinguishable - both in (muliple) plot formation and character development than "Star Wars" - yet with lots of action.)

      At the very least, such internal technology, including genetic modifications (like any *power*) will likely become highly addictive to many users (psychologically if not also technologically). If one cannot have a few beers or a good toc and leave it at that for days or weeks without missing it, then one will not do any better with their "A.I. kit." For one thing, the natural systems -that such a kit would replace or bolster- will degrade if not used. On the other hand, if A.I., genetic modulation, or a safer approach, is used to "kick start" or maintain a system that is confirmed as dormant or broken (respectively)... but that is (or can be) what --appropriately implemented- yoga is about, *naturally*. Related: "Notes on Addiction" section at the "Goal Chart" page.

      The "True Yoga" path enhances or initiates and renders capacities to the degree we have called them "Divine." And yet, no true yogi would deny that all that requires dedication and discipline, not to mention doing one's personal homework - working with that pesky emotional body - while on this plane of time, space, experience. As for why there has been such a fear of this approach (since humanity is not afraid of hard work - although it fears being called weak, being stigmatized) please consider how and when "the Church" banned such things 1500+ years ago (the Dark Ages weren't called that just due to the plague) - you may find interesting the section on "Pragmatic Balance ...History" at the "Chalice Integration Arts and Sciences" page. And, by the way, the yoga that has come to be popularly taught in the last few years (since 2010 or so) is not what the first sentence refers to, as it generally addresses *only* the physical health aspect (depending on any given instructor/ student relationship, of course), but may be a wonderful first step for many students. My own yoga practice (on the physical level) is on an as needed but deepening basis per Origins of Tensing Yoga" section at "Tensing Yoga" page, next to "Related Links and Notes from more *traditional yoga* teachers".

      As for *Other* means of neuro-endocrine / psycho-emotional healing and development of E.Q., there are many helpful directions being researched. Some of which may relate to or be applied to the Fascia Memory Project (although I'm not aware of any research *purposely* or knowingly related to that). The same can almost be said for the ventricles and "Grail Mind" - except that a great deal of research has been conducted in the last 10-15 years, and proactively applied to the (limbic) system that the ventricles are most functionally integrated with. And, with "integration" being the key word here, would seem to most definitely be headed toward the realization of this more complete "grail system." And that is discussed with illustrations in the section below.

      EG: While we can benefit from the A.I. research within certain wisely incorporated boundaries, please note: the "A" means "artificial." Which means temporary due not only to such reasons that ANYTHING electronically accessible can be hacked by those with more knowledge about the artificial element, and if hackers can, then per their nature, some will. And "genetic" should mean absolute care beyond any measure of responsibility that we've ever been proven trustworthy of - until proven otherwise. Life is about learning, IMO, and so we will. And about the long term, step by step approach. That's what I like about the "12-Step" process - per whatever addiction may apply - substance or activity. (And, IMO, learning is the only purpose of Karma, and why we will always come back to whatever has not been completed, however many lifetimes it takes, with "little heavens and hells" in between and along *the Way* - of integrating our Divinity, becoming Love itself, etc.)

      As noted at the Chalice Integration Arts & Sciences page, the logo title "Chalice Productions" refers to the chalice *within* and what we do with it, what we manifest into and as "reality." The prose "Synthesis" and "Chalice Bridging" (above) refer to this process in a very eclectic way.

Limbic, Ventricle, & "Grail Systems"
Introduction to A summary outline of more to come
Including Scientific Research On the Limbic System - Co-Enveloping the Ventricles

Prep Notes on the Ventricles and CSF (Central Spinal Fluid)
(Please Refer to Summary Outline Chart Below)

         Note: The limbic system is essentially *one with* the 3rd ventricle as it is with the top of the 4th, while intimately enveloped by the (two) lateral ventricles (or nearly so - on top and sides). And those are also just under (touching) the cingulate, which is the limbic component that has more recently (2003+) been shown as one of, if not the, most essential brain components for the mind-body integrative function (eg: including emotional, empathic, or interpersonal, which it integrates - via the limbic system). Before 1997 or so, there was rarely any research findings venturing to say the limbic region of the brain was about much more than raw emotion and usually as related to survival instincts, never using the word "empathy," let alone was it about actual *integration* of intellect with emotion. But given all the experience with MRI's and various other brain-scanning equipment while observing behavior, lots of correlations have been established since 1995, but particularly since 2003.
         Since then Dr. Daniel J. Siegel has gone the extra mile, assembling his correlations directly from this most conventional scientific research, -- IMHO, centering on *The Integrative Function of Limbic System* for the physical and psycho-emotional aspects, that of consciousness, and relationships there among. While he does "not" include any relationship to the ventricles such as considered here, Dr. Siegel has prolifically translated that research into pramatically useful training manuals for students and practitioners, and for a most impressive variety of applications in mental health, especially pediatric psychology, as well as in self-healing and conscious awareness. [reflinks to his website(s) are below] Note that, while I will be focusing mainly on the relationship of the limbic (and functionally related components of the brain) to the ventricles and intuition and related implications thereof (on this page), Dr. Siegel's work in neuroscience extends far wider and deeper, and particulary into the practical applications - both clinical and self-help - of the research into psychotherapy, consciousness, and personal growth. [ Many references about and to his works are noted below the Limbic/Ventricle & Grail Systems Summary Chart ]
         As for exploring relationships of the above with *Integrating the Diversity of Mind-Body Functions,* some, if not most, of that will be developed here. While some will relate more to the body-memory, proprioreceptive, and more neuro-muscular and neuro-viseral of the mind-body hook-ups, and be added at the "Fascia Memory" Theory/Project pages. As for how and why they essentially work best when they work together, why it is essential that they do so, as well as how much improvement to the process we can make, that is very much already well developed by Dr. Siegel's work, having made the results ready and available for implementation, and I will add further references to that as includes notes here as well.

Text continued below anatomical views   (Summary Outline Chart FURTHER below)

Ventricles,LimbicSysOfGrailBrain[OvrChGarden&CntrCross]-Draft3V by Chris Pringer with Anatomical components by Digital Anatomist Project of the University of Washington
Above: anatomical views of the Limbic/Ventricle system(s) - Note that most components are dual or mirrored on each side of the brain (our brains are designed to be functionally inner-collaborative, inner-interpolative). These images showing one side or the other, in some cases with different components shown in the opposite views. Most anatomical images are composed of figures from the Digital Anatomist Project of the University of Washington, assembled & artistically rendered by Chris Pringer, July-Aug 2016.

         Meanwhile, neither the ventricles, nor the central spinal fluid (CSF) that is circulated by them, have yet to be recognized (by science) as components contributing to the integrative processes of the brain - per physiology texts or research since the 70's or more. One question here is: What if it is found that the CSF collects information from the 'Other' energy systems (other "spider-web-like information processors around these organs" (as Dr. Siegel refers to them in section 11-4 of "Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology"), to the effect that, the ventricles channel a *previously
undetected ultra-high multiple frequency and data rich* CSF to and through the limbic and cortex systems, and then down through the energy centers -- to share data with them, given that each energy center is an energy/data processing system -- on the way to the sacrum, before it begins to ascend through the spine, *collecting ultra-high multiple frequency and data from the body's energy centers (which function to monitor, supply, and draw same from the meridians) each time before the CSF returns back through the brain-stem systems to the ventricles again, *as well as to the upper energy centers.* I will refer to that whole CSF energy inter/intra-exchange process as the "CSF-Train."  
CSF-Channels & Foramen- by Pixelated Brain, Adj. by cp
         [The energy centers or chakra system will eventually be functionally mapped to some degree, realized as monitors, integrators, and power converter/ transducers on frequencies and levels of capability of which we realize we are still only scratching the surface. But so far, neither that or the 'CSF-Train' relationship with them and the ventricles have been scientifically verified yet - just in case that was not yet made sufficiently clear.]

         Short of that finding (for decades, I suspect - two to four?) there *have* been found possible (apparently very likely) relationships between swollen and/or congested ventricles and some mental health conditions, (so far, mainly) including hydrocephalus, schizophrenia, PTSD, antisocial personality disorder, and dementia pugilistica. What if we generalize all those conditions into (what I will call) "more or less dis-engaged communications among those aspects of the body-mind-brain that are responsible for maintaining a healthfully organized consciousness regarding the identity of and/or with "the Self" relative to that of "the other" ? (Which phrasing may be considered by mystics and metaphysicians as indicative of the duality of that reality that we *live in* - as compared to that reality of unity, of interconnectedness with All That Is, which we are in process of realizing. Ok, so much for that brief digression...)
         We might wonder what the results would be - for each of the scientific studies with the cingulate and related deep brain structures - with significant differences first created in the ventricles and or CSF (if it could be done without damaging the bodies or minds of those being tested, of course).

         What science has shown that it is good at, is examining health conditions and effectively collating, examining, and *eventually* very productively summarizing the results. When science does this - in context of those with conditions that are related to the above - I am fairly sure we will be able to accomplish what is needed in order to understand much more about the full role of the ventricles, whatever that is. When we perform this research in the context of the above questions, with certain frequency ranges in focus, for each of the bodily energy centers as well as the changes in CSF along the way, having developed the capacity to record, filter, and organize the myriad of data - that is, of a likely as yet unencountered amount and variety of types - then we will see what we will see.
         At this point I will refer to the "True Yoga" path noted in the above section, "A Summary 'On Point'," and invoke the term, "Rainbow Bridge," saying that context is everything (especially since *context* is a key part of integration -which this is all about, of course) and leave it at that for now. [Aug 2016]

         Reminder: The below chart is a summary of things to come, to the degree not yet covered here. [Apologies, but when you get to Dr. Siegel's books or site material, you may understand why this has been been taking some time - referring to the amount of interesting things to attempt to summarize. smile
         As with the above illustration: Note that most components are dual or mirrored on each side of the brain (our brains are designed to be functionally inner-collaborative, inner-interpolative). These images show one side or the other, in some cases with different components shown in the opposite views - which helps more clearly label them here. IE: the cingulate gyrus is internal to, and a little higher than, the caudate nucleus. And IE: the Thalamus (like the other components shown here) is external (farther to the side) of those components, yet/with left and right sides of the Thalamus joined functionally - if not also totally physically (which would be more apparent with a view from the top). No need to be intimidated - it took me a little while to get "the picture" of things. smile

Outline / Description for Complete Essay

    "Evolution TRENDS:    
its Evolution into the 'Holographic Age.' "

Chris Pringer 1995 (with subsequent edits noted & dated)

          At the time of this description and publishing (12-9-95) there are 4 parts or sections to the essay, each about 13KB (basic non-formatted ASCII), including this description (also put in part 1). [Broken into 9 sections, 5 more added in 2009, including scans of the original paper]
          The essay contains some semi-technical descriptions from a psycho-social and medical perspective, but the lay-person will likely not find it so intimidating as to be discouraged from discussing many, if not most, aspects covered.
          In order to make a useful assessment of any situation to determine ones course of action -- one usually weighs current and future assets (i.e.: resources and tools), liabilities, challenges and objectives. I have integrated certain models of systems that compare levels of human development to help assess the "level" of (psycho-social) evolution we appear to be at now, compared to what human potential might be. [Much more about that added in 2009, see TOC below] The implications are timely, a balance of warning with hope and direction. I describe a little more about how this got onto paper in the Introduction (part 1).

the Inner Chalice
          Presenting artwork on the "Chalice" or Grail theme (by yours truly), both hand-made & artistically rendered computer-generated works, & a little bio on how it began & developed. This art is born out of the 3D geometric vision/ visual "seen" in 1985, which experience was complete with correlations to deep (pre-Christian) symbology - which initiated the research into the correlations to the legendary meanings of the Holy Grail (and sources, and how and why that was later edited by "the Church"), as well as into various body-mind-spirit correlations, & healing alchemy & energy dynamics. All this related both the body & the grail elements to the mind's interface, in a way that makes sense of many otherwise-would-be paradoxes & mysteries, thus bridging arts & sciences with implications related to whole health, including one's relationship with his/her cells. And when incorporating "sacred geometry" into the the rendered symbols (per pi-ratio) -also relevant to the DNA of all Life (proportion as essential to function), most interesting artforms seem to naturally appear.

"Multi-Vortex Chalice
over Chalice I"

          Essentially (Per mystical symbolism which precedes anything any religion has, or may yet, to do with it), the chalice is about the human embodiment of Spirit (or Who or whatever It is that created & connects all Life) into the three "lower bodies" (mental, emotional, & physical) which compose the "Body-Mind". Which is also a "vehicle" for the balancing & integrating of Humanity - individually & communally. Chalice "Productions" may thus refer to each person AS a chalice in development. There are essays on various geometry, proportion, function, symbolism, history, & possible implications, including a working Summary for Pragmatic Balance of psycho-social objectives & approaches for bringing about an evolution of mankind as alluded to at this page and addressed at various others at Chalice Bridge.
          The ARTWORK: overall is an eclectic/symbolic mix of multiple layers of brights and subtles, often emerging out of veils, mists, or "darkness", with thematic components that blend in sacred geometry very symmetrically yet rendered with an artistic balance of textures and grounding touch. There are many samples at this page, as well as many others at Chalice Bridge, with full size images at Artist Websites .Com (of Fine Art America).

The "Pragmatic Balance" section
and its sister page, "The Mystical Jesus - Selected Reviews"

          "A Relationship Between the Dramatic Rise in Popularity of Media and the Desire for Pragmatic Balancing of Extremes?" is about relationships among the symbolic chalice, the Holy Grail, the legend, the actual related history, current day religious extremism, and the future (psycho-social) evolution of Man.
          That is, it extends from extensive historical references (noted/linked therein) that extend back to Celtic pre-Christian times as well as to the Celtic Christian, and what is referred to as "the Matter of Britain", and more. Except for the Dark Ages which are so-named due to the most disappointing lack of historical data - very puzzling to scholars for the last many centuries.
          And I interpret that lack of documentation as directly related to the transition period (including inquisitions and destruction or hiding of documents, as well as plagues) -- that followed Constantine's assembly of documents that became the bible (via "the Church", as they censored parts of them and kept out many other documents) -- and all that implied for "the Church"s agenda, including plans for rule of what was to become Europe.

          The sister page, "The Mystical Jesus" provides the detailed story form summaries for certain historical aspects (grail, bloodline, templars...) and the lost years and more mystical background of Jesus. While all that is put into context at the "Pragmatic Balance" section.
          At Chalice Bridge, "The Bloodline of Jesus" is actually not a primary focus when comes to the symbolism of the chalice / grail (the "Bridging Chalice" or "Chalice Bridge"), but as one evidence of the symbolism as presented. Which symbolism relates to the purpose of "polarity" in the universe, not only at the atomic level per Sacred Geometry, but in relationships - magnetism / gender / other opposites in continuum, including *extremes*). And to related interpretation of the grail legend as relates to the history (with the summaries in context), to the (psycho-social) evolution of Man, to the world's key religions as well as the Gnostics (by nature of that which unites all of them, although is not necessarily about them). All that is then related to, with implications for, current times and potential future scenarios. And to why there have been "holy wars" - and, more importantly, to why there is absolutely no need for them (if there ever was). Here, the bloodline is as much about EVERYONE having the divine connection (and inheritance and potential), as it is about one family having it.

          If you like good drama, begin with the "Mystical Jesus" page. If you like the infrastructure of analysis and implication, with lots of symbolism, psychology, and references, then off to the "Pragmatic Balance" section with you. smile To follow up, also at the Chalice Art page, is the essay, " 'The Lords of Culture' & Listening - A story about Language, Relationship, & the Body-Mind Split - An Anthropology of Intelligence & Paradigms in Context" (7'10) accompanied by, "Therapies & Levels of 'The Spectrum of Consciousness' " a seminal chart by Ken Wilber; "Paradigm Shifts" (7'10).

To me, this implies that, given these scientifically established capabilities in neuroplasticity, including scientifically backed capabilities of the mind to effect enzymes, cellular metabolism, blood physiology (pH, enzyme processes, etc) within and around the cell matrix, we can facilitate communication among our own cells to use that same capacity to repair damages and thus heal our cells -- thus encouraging the kind of preventative maintenance that facilitates the science of true healing. And that medical authorities, as well as alternative healing practitioners, can now, with full scientific backing, teach people how to do this. And about ChaktiBullet-S "The Immune System, Aging, and an Attitudinal Approach that May Improve It." As well as: ChaktiBullet-S "Dietary Nutrition, Neuro-Endocrine Infrastructure, Neuroplasticity, and Aging" on relationship of nutrition and psycho-emotional environment during infancy and childhood upon key aspects of development of 'A Stable Platform for Perception', and the 'Psycho-emotional Infrastructure', it's maturation through adulthood, as well as upon the aging process. The neuroplasticity aspect relates well to the essay on proprioceptors, "Adrenaline vs Endorphins...", not to mention the relationship with ones cells (muscles or otherwise), covered at the "Body-Mind Integration" (Essays) Page (described just below). Some debate with Barbara Ehrenreich in ChaktiBullet-S "About the Immune System and The Aging Body - As a 'Battleground' ...Or As A Worthy Challenge." On the more eclectic side is ChaktiBullet-S "Blessing Nutrition" about how prayer and invocation work at the atomic & molecular levels (facilitating processes by re-aligning their structural & therefore magnetic/ionic arrangement) to facilitate the optimal nutrition of the food, as well as optimal digestion, assimilation, and integration of the nutrients and vital force provided by the food. Includes some sample invocations for context and application.

    ChBullet   "A Gestalt Perspective," and "Seven Phases of Personal Growth" (2 Essays)    A perspective on an approach to and regard for life, one's past and present, as well as a basis for personal growth and/or therapy. I could've called it an integrated 'Gestaltist-Humanist-Buddhist-New Thought' perspective. (You could say these are my main sources, from among the various "schools" of psychology and correlating approaches to application of therapy.)

Other pages at this site are born out of similar hopes, dreams, and visions. When I use the term "evolution" at this website, I am referring to the psycho-social evolution of humankind, resulting in lasting change on the physical level (particularly with the brain), and not to the science of evolution and the controversy around that. And usually from the perspective or paradigm that looks at the recent psycho-social trends - in comparison to the overall course of mankind.

    ChBullet   The Fascia-Memory Project

What would actually change
our health-care system the most?

          One of my main dreams is a society where/in everyone, beginning in childhood, is taught how to feel/see/read their own body-mind communications such that preventative health maintenance eventually becomes second nature. That would then be part of our upbringing and public schooling. Sample benefit: Over time we would learn to channel our initial stress response into channels more creative than that of fight or flight. And actually, much of this "adrenal response" has been shown to be a learned response, and not necessarily innate. Hence, we would be encouraged to re-awaken and build upon what I believe to be a natural inclination and inner knowing - conscious self-healing and continuous expansion of awareness.) This vision was born out of what I saw to be one of the most wonderful potentials for (should we find scientific basis underlying) the original Fascia Memory theory ('94-'95), which was published at the Future Health .Org site in June'96.

          How about a means of diagnosis that takes so many aspects of a person into account, that it creates a capacity for designing a truly healing program for most any patient? Nice dream you say. How could a diagnostic system be that accurate for so many conditions? What would enable our medical system to consider, so surely and comprehensively to so much greater depth and context, the many processes for the many different kinds of individuals, than we do now? Well, of course, such questions indicate a healthy skepticism. But let's dream just a bit more, but this time, from outside the box, as they say:

         What if there were a system of assessment that would bring together the great many disciplines of health-care - particularly including Eastern, Naturopathic, and even the many among the Western - and to a degree of collaboration that was far beyond what we've ever seen before? In case you don't know, such collaboration is currently not a reality to any meaningful extent, certainly for most health conditions. Particularly between those focusing on the body, and those focusing on the mind, not to mention the relative few focusing on the connection between the two. Bottom Line: When enough people become sufficiently motivated to know the degree to which individuals can heal themselves and each other through body-awareness-based preventative maintenance, then the research will be funded and implemented.

         The Fascia-Memory Project is about research and development into the relationships among connective tissue (fascia), objective/subjective experience, the neuro-physical interface between emotion, and the brain, and "body-Memory." About developing connective tissue scanning devices and diagnostics hardware for discerning and illustrating all that. Goals include the developing optimal means for applying that R&D in health care practice, as well as enhanced systems for individual development of body-awareness for preventative health maintenance. A long term project, of course, but intermediate goals and sub-projects could have considerable effective change. The range of application extends from the medical industry to personal home use, to public education, to social and correctional rehabilitation.

          The project's web site includes pages for Intro & Summary (with a detailed table of contents with links to the other pages - Description & Purpose, Goals & Objectives, Research & Development, Theory, References & Links [extensive], Project Overview Chart, Project Flow Chart ( "Pert" style output by 'MS Project' ), and links to accompanying documents at this site. For context and perspective on this far-reaching multi-faceted proposal, see (page 8) the Fascia-Memory Project Overview Chart.

A Different Take on Evolution

    ChBullet   Evolution Trends: The 'Information Age' And Its Evolution Into The 'Holographic Age'
Challenges and Realistic Goals For Survival and Creating A Desirable Future, © Nov'95

NOTE: At this website the term "evolution" refers to that of human consciousness, resulting in lasting change on the physical level.
Evolve Humanity, ChaliceVortex&Planet'evolve-balance', © Chris Pringer PolyPsyArt 2008    
          We are currently in the "Information Age" of global-scale *collection and organization * of data and data systems. The "Holographic Age" will be marked by "...the integration of data (a precursor and main component of the Holographic age) ...will bring about a tremendous explosion in capabilities of unprecedented scope, magnitude, and depth... The ability to offer/affect pre-designed physiological, emotional, mental, and psychic change on human beings..." Intelligence manages information, but wisdom manages Intelligence. This "adventurous" draft into the future (or potential future scenarios) at many key areas of evolvement of Human Society. Organized web page includes sections: "Getting There From Here - and The Political Maze In Between," "Some Trends and Developments In Health and Environment," "Psycho-Social Transition And Rehabilitation" (in corrections, education, and health), and "The Role Of Intuition Coming Home...". Recent additions include: much improved "Basis of Assessment - with "Seven Phases of Evolution"; "On Potential Realities, Ideals, Goals, and Accomplishment"; and "On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace" (& Purpose, Structure, Religion, Karma), and ref-links for the "updated" prophecies for the year 2012.

          ie: [from original August 1995 paper:] "...Our trial and initiation prior to entering the next age is dealing with the issue of 'Polarization.' So much depends on how we manage this issue during the 1995 - 2005 period of time... critical on many levels. The implications may therefore be timely, a balance of warning with hope and direction => ...'Polarization' refers to the two opposing extremes of over-identification and enmeshment. The first extreme, over-identification, relating to hyper-egoism or narcissism, includes misplaced patriotism and competition for the sake of wrong-making and degradation, nationalism that unduly separates people, bigotry, elitism, and related extremes. The 2nd extreme, enmeshment, relating to the blurring of proper boundaries (such as with emotional or energetic enmeshment, sexual abuse, any improper 'dual relationship'), includes that which occurs with [non/]secular/political or political/personal conflicts of interest. Appropriate structure (laws, regulations, professional guidelines, cultural mores, rules of conduct, etc) is the result of healthy personal and societal discrimination of values, and related priorities and goals... ...will develop out of necessity - much due to the aberrations of the info age (psychological manipulation and necessary defense systems practiced by/for/against businesses in competition as well as for military reasons => ...personal data as common knowledge <=> 'Age of Exposure' => ...the decade of the media moguls and the survival of democracy..."

Cut from Scan of Original Paper (1995)
            But if we get through all that, one of the many noted benefits include "... We will have the unique opportunity to learn first-hand from the most hi-tech, research data-backed, psychological ...Awareness on/of the various levels & interrelationships between these areas... The application of intuition may find an unprecedented role in terms both of breadth and of its popular integration with the more logical approaches ...As a result, various systems of 'Integrated Diagnostics' will be developed..."
          The original paper was email published in Nov '95 on (Institute of Noetic Sciences) and Spiramed@sjuvm.stjohns.Edu. Yes, *1995* - So I guess the "system" I used was not so bad (based on the "Seven Phases of Evolution," as detailed on that page in Dec'09). Some intuition did enter in between that system and the "if this, then this" logic - scans of original notes with hand-drawn flow-charts included, but I've never called this "a prophecy," but a perceived spiritual challenge (for humanity) with potentially great rewards - an opportunity for taking responsibility. Even so: That 10 year 'prep' period has just passed - wherein so much did indeed determine about how and how soon we begin this next age - or if we do before the planet (otherwise) overhauls itself. But remember "that spaceship" that's going to save us ? Wink Well, IMO, the pilots are none other than ourselves - as our Earth-Steward selves that is. So, IF it happens, not to worry, we won't miss a minute of it -- IMO, God wouldn't deprive us of the realization that we are so capable! (And responsible. Or don't we want to earn our way ?!)

THE WORK ETHIC and the Body Mind:

        Work is what happens when one would rather be doing something else.
No matter what you're doing, at that point it becomes work, right?
(eg: When I enjoy "the work" so much as I often do, it just feels strange to call it work)
But where would that put "the work ethic" ?   
I mean, which "should" be more rewarded - working more with less motivation,
or working less with more motivation ?   Which would/should be more rewarding ?
And ... if every work that happened was essential
to the overall purpose of all and it was realized as such,
and If there was no work that was associated
with the making of someone less than someone else (less worthy of love and respect) ,
how much more enjoyable then would every kind of work be?
And would we, as individuals, then find it easier to know
just exactly what work it was that we enjoyed the most?
Is there any relationship between such questions and stress or muscle health?

Is this a
      a) trick question,   b) rhetorical question,   or   c) essay question   ?   <grin>
