Last night (12-16-19), reading through Simon Sinek’s recently published The Infinite Game gave me the hope, even confidence, that he has both the nobility of soul and common sense to welcome and actually champion my complimentary book, You Are Already Enough! How Would Your Life CHANGE If You Really Believed It?
I’m extending an open hand to him, as well as to James P. Carse, whose Finite and Infinite Games inspired Simon’s book. This is how I expressed the invitation in emails sent earlier today:
Hi Simon and Mighty Team! The archetypal Life Wheel (Golden Circle) is at the heart of my work. To your vision I contribute yoga sutras, quantum theory and (YES) the intuited Unified Field Theory (consciousness factor included) which Einstein already had, though didn’t know it. Balanced with your work, mine has the potential to alter the direction of history in a positive direction. I am not on Facebook. So I will post a blog – Invitation to Simon – on my website – https://RethinkingSurvival.com – with details. It’s not a rival approach, but rather an urgently necessary compliment in need of champions! All best. Pat West
Everyone is welcome to check out the detailed description of the Life Wheel offered Here.
However, below, I will let a few of variations of the Life Wheel stimulate your imaginations. Hint: The positive applications and benefits of accepting it whole were foreseen by Buckminster Fuller.
Here, for example, is the Life Wheel applied to unified Cooperation versus superficial Competition. It pictures the Why, How and What levels of the Golden Circle as well as their equivalents expressed as the variables of Einstein’s formula: mass, energy and light.
In that picture, I refer to the integrated, Unified Field Theory as our Hope for the Future. That is no small or empty claim.
Another variation places yogic energy centers within the quantum field of experience. The lowest centers correspond with the physical body, the m = mass level of the Wheel. The middle centers fit within the e = energy level. They have to do with e-motions. The heart. As you go higher, the throat center correlates with verbal intelligence. Going higher still along the scale towards the c = light level is intuition.
Energy center distinctions are important. Every level of perception plays an important part in overall awareness. However, intuition is of a higher order than a gut feeling. Enlightenment is qualitatively different from heart-felt desires.
A final suggestive image pictures what happens when empirical science rules out the inner levels of experience – those which can’t be observed, measured, and quantified. We’re left experiencing our lives as a hollow, empty shell.
Feelings and conscience don’t cease to exist, however. Rather, they’re driven underground. I call the dynamic “fracture.” In The Infinite Game, Simon describes the consequences of fractures as splits, and observes how the dynamic ruins business organizations.
So here’s my invitation. For the future well-being of all, let’s join forces to tip the balance in favor of cooperation over competition, to restore wholeness and fulfillment over fractured self-destructiveness.
