Possession by the Idea of Unity

Excerpt from upcoming book "Unity of Nature and Humanity"E

For the purpose of this study, it is important to understand the difference between unity itself and the idea of unity. Unity encompasses the entire universe, in other words, everything physical, and the human psyche.  The unity of those two realms in itself is unknowable considering we have limited knowledge of either. Our idea of unity however, can be known, and is based on our personal experience, insight and understanding. The idea of unity is behind all religions, political movements and idealism's and can have varied permutations. Globalism is such an example and its implementation has far reaching consequences.

One world is a noble idea that has only recently included the entire earth.  Before that the idea of unity was limited to communities, cities, regions, nations and continents. As an idea however, it comes from individual minds. It is not something that we can create consciously although we can appreciate and support the idea in another person. The very nature of the idea of unity perceived in oneself is however, beyond our influence and understanding. Yet, the interpretation of the idea can be as personal as the individual themself.

The idea of Unity in its spiritual form has gripped entire cultures and organised them into large groups with a common belief. Ancient Egypt organised its population through their leader pharaohs, who believed they had a direct connection to the idea of unity as their ritualistic practices at death show. It included the organisation of the population and a connection to the hereafter and was one of the first cultural expressions where there was no differentiation between the political and spiritual. The pharaohs had ultimate power and control over the population through their all-encompassing system. [1]

Subsequent systems differentiated practical matters such as law, order, taxes, feeding the population, resource distribution etc, from the spiritual and provided a framework for the latter. The Roman Empire for example controlled their population through political and physical power, yet allowed spiritual worship unhindered. In some instances, the spiritual system had more control over the population than politically, Totalitarian idea of unity

The political idea of unity is practical and down to earth in that it deals with the physical aspects of life. It leaves the spiritual to the religious institutions and in most cases accepts and protects them. This does not however avoid the problem of what is essentially the same idea of unity from a different point of view. In some cases, the spiritual aspect of the idea is removed to form a totalitarian state. The political class takes the place of the spiritual elevating its leader to a demigod where both political and spiritual aspects are contained in one practical system. From a teleological point of view, this interpretation of unity encompasses all aspects of the human condition, that is, both practical and spiritual. In that sense, it is a more comprehensive idea of unity. Why then do these systems have much opposition and always collapse?


The answer lies in the way the individual perceives unity and the misconception that others share their idea in the same way. It is natural to want to share the idea of unity because it is very powerful and has an enormous amount of energy behind it. The danger is that the idea can overwhelm and possess an individual [2] . Tyrants and spiritual leaders alike, sacrifice their humanity and well-being to their interpretation of unity. Because of the energy behind the idea and its ability to overwhelm the personality of the individual, it is important to know oneself and to have one's feet firmly planted in the earth. Without this, the danger of possession is high and the natural consequence of this is projection of the idea onto the world and other people, rather than accepting its unique relationship to oneself alone
Unity projected onto

As an idea, unity brings together all aspects of existence into a whole with all elements in a unified and related pattern. Unity brings the physical into relationship with the dream, which is its foundation. Projection is nature's way of bringing opposites together in the first step of realisation. Similar to the projection of the idea of unity is a mans idea of his inner ideal woman projected onto an actual woman. This is how nature works and how the opposite sexes attract. The danger lies in the fact that the inner idea is different to the actual woman. This is where most of the conflict occurs between men and women, when behaviour not matching the idea projected onto her. It is the same but opposite for women to men [3] .


The idea of unity relates to the male/female problem in that its union and realisation unites them. For example if a man orients himself through thinking (air) and intuition (fire) in an extraverted (towards the physical) way [4] , the opposite functions of feeling (water) and sensation (earth) are to some extent below our awareness. [5] Those functions then tend to be projected onto other people and objects. In this example, the man's orientation is masculine and not aware of his feminine functions. This accounts for the reason some individuals project what they are not aware of onto the world as a whole. If Nietzsche had turned away from his mythological and psychic exploration back to the practical world of earning a living, wife and family, it may have spared him the tragic end that befell him [6] .


The idea of one world and all its institutions controlled by one government comes from this idea of unity perceived by certain individuals. Who are these individuals? This is difficult to answer because they may not be the political leaders we know and work in the background as a shadow leadership. We can determine that the individuals pushing for a global order are extremely powerful and influential. They would have to have enormous monetary resources to influence other people. We cannot be certain if it is nation state leaders, banking families, corporate leaders, religious groups, wealthy individuals, or a combination of these.
 accomplishment

The idea of unity is the same as any product of the dream world and points to an inner and outer component in relationship. For example, a man that has a relationship to his inner ideal woman and a physical woman has the opportunity to unite them in relationship. It is important to note that a union of these elements or functions of the human psyche require careful and thorough separation and differentiation between the inner and outer before union can occur. Otherwise, the two are contaminated with each other and characteristics are impossible to discern.
before union

In other words, a man has to know the characteristics, functions, likes and dislikes, feelings, emotions etc of his inner woman different to his wife or partner. It is this recognition and understanding of the differences that enables him to accept his physical partner as she is, rather than how he wants her to be. Similarly, the idea of a united world in government requires all the people to be governed to accept this proposal without the loss of their own integrity and characteristics and have some say in the way government operates. If this is not the case, there will be a reaction to the idea of globalism with the resurgence of nationalism and individualism.
of the population to

The idea of unity is not the same for every individual. For example, an introverted thinker will be to some extent unconscious of his extraverted feeling. Similarly, an extraverted intuitive will be unaware of his or her introverted earthly aspect and need to integrate this to find their unity. This is why ideas of unity have differing permutations. It is as if unity is the centre of a circle and everyone stands on the perimeter looking at the same centre from a different viewpoint. This explains why we have so many spiritual and political systems. If one is not aware of the purpose of the idea of unity, it is projected and lived out as such, the same as the projection of the idea of a partner onto an actual partner.


The reaction of people to a projected idea of unity is varied. If they are in tune with the idea, they may accept it, live by its tenet's and help its realization. If not, reject it and look for another idea more suited to them. The biggest problem the globalists have is their approach to the problem. They do not base their ordering system for unity on the individual and the broad spectrum of individual ideas of unity. There are as many permutations of the idea as there are personality types. This is the central problem with all political and religious ordering systems. The experience of unity inspires others to adopt the idea in their own lives if it suites them. Unfortunately, some systems demand acceptance through coercion or force.
is the key to unity

The idea of unity is so powerful that it can possess an individual and can lead to catastrophic consequences; particularly when the individual lacks an awareness of his or her own functioning. This is the key to the problem of globalism in that all systems based on the idea of unity originate in individuals. It is an individual task and journey and can only be interpreted as such. We can no more ask another to live in our own personality, as we are the only person that perceives our own dreams. It is this fact that shows that ideas of inner figures or systems are personal, even though the ideas are universal and common to all people. If individuals are forced into an unsuitable system, a natural reaction occurs.

Contemporary events illustrate this reaction. The so-called "Brexit" and the election of a "wildcard" president in the United States are a natural reaction to the dilution of identity which a migration of immigrants from the Middle East and Africa into Europe and Britain and immigrants from Mexico to the US, leaving the indigenous population fearful of a loss of their own idea of unity. It is the same as having locks on your doors and fences on your property boundary. This ensures that unknown forces whether real or imagined, do not penetrate the well-being of your psychic space. Fear of an imagined foe is as powerful as the fear of a real foe.


The globalist agenda is to erode borders of nation states and seem to have no ethical guidelines in achieving this goal. There is evidence showing that "false flag" events are staged to achieve this goal. In addition to the proven events, there is a growing speculation that the US government was complicit in the attacks on 911. Indeed, there are numerous anomalies in the event that warrants a closer look at the evidence. This includes WTC Building 7, which was not struck by an aircraft yet collapsed into its own footprint. Engineers, architects and demolition experts regard this as impossible under the circumstances. Other discrepancies include the lack of response to the hijacking by the military and the anomalous video of a smaller object striking the pentagon, rather than the aircraft as reported. This and other attacks on various events and cities raise questions as to their validity and honesty. The invasion of Middle Eastern countries [7] followed this attack and the real reason for the invasions has more to do with the idea of territorial influence [8] , money and control, than revenge. 
for globalism through education, media, politics, etc.

Other more subversive methods of promoting globalism involve cultural change over many years through education, media, finance and politics. It is a slow transformation of the general population into an amendable state for the globalist agenda. This includes the dismantling of the nation states and borders as already mentioned, promoting unrest in nations, mass immigration, diluting the indigenous population, combining religious belief systems, the blurring of gender, weakening of the family unit, population reduction, weakening of the middle class and climate change [9] . These are just some of the methods used to achieve the globalist agenda. It is no wonder the general population reacted to this agenda in a forceful and definitive way. The British saw their job prospects diminishing, their safety compromised and their Christian system under threat. That in addition to laws created by an external un-elected body in Brussels. So too in the United States with the loss of their manufacturing base to cheaper labour markets, flood of immigrants with lack of border control and a general discontent, and the view that political and corporate leaders were enriching themselves at the cost of the general population and skirting the law to do so.

In addition to the practical and immediate rebellion to the idea of global governance is something much deeper and far reaching. This is what the psychologists call (the spirit of the land). It includes the climate, landscape, ancestral heritage, deepest collective myths and individual connection to the land. Physically the (spirit of the land) results in the typical physiognomy of a culture. It also effects the populations behaviour in that a sunny climate promotes sports and outdoor activity whereas a freezing climate, indoor activities. The appropriate metaphor for such a culture is the "tree of life". It has its roots firmly planted in the ground and is drawn out of the ground into the atmosphere, its form dependent on type and environmental conditions.


The connection to the land nourishes us physically, emotionally and spiritually and is an innate part of our makeup. When a culture has this connection to the land for many centuries, it is loath to relinquish it or have it diluted by others who do not share it. When the connection is not strong as with the new territories such as Australia, Unites States and New Zealand, the general lack of adaptation can lead to a cultural inflation. We are witnessing this in the United States with its belligerence, arrogance and disconnection from reality. Its belief that they are good and righteous and project evil onto others that do not agree with them; its targeting of nations for "regime change"; its bringing in corporations for resource exploitation; its unwavering protection of Israel and its theft of land from the Palestinians and simply throwing its might around when it suites them. These are all characteristics of a bully teenager with too much power. In time however, the (Spirit of the Land) tempers youth and draws its inhabitants down to its earth with the corresponding change in psychic behaviour. This is why it is so important to have experience, knowledge and understanding of the indigenous population of a land and how their culture grew out of the very land they inhabit. by the idea of unity

The idea is one of humanity's best creative acts and as with all products from dream, can easily take possession of the individual or group. It is this danger that leads to major conflicts that have plagued humanity throughout history. The idea of unity in particular has enormous possessive power over the individual, over and above the possessive strength of the contra sexual idea as mentioned earlier. Throughout history, the idea of unity was regarded with the highest spiritual value and literally united the individual with all things inner and outer. This is the true nature of the idea of unity, yet its realisation is an individual task. It is a personal exploration of one's own individuality and the connecting to one's own dream life.


This is where the error occurs, particularly when an individual has no eyes for their dreams. Unity has a feeling of universality and it is natural to assume all people feel the same way about it. Unfortunately, different people have different ideas about unity. The religious and political systems existing in the world today emphasise this fact. When an individual or group try to enforce their idea of unity onto others, there is a natural reaction and rejection of that particular idea.
 can we get a united world?

Is it actually possible to get a united world in either a spiritual or political system? This is difficult to answer and we can only speculate on the way it might look. For any idea of unity to work for all people, they would have to have a say in how it is constructed and who runs the system. The system will have to be flexible enough to accommodate individual freedom of choice, expression, moral flexibility and understanding of our true nature. This is the difficulty of a united world system in that our current level of understanding of human nature is poor. We have only to reflect on some governments attempt to outlaw hate. There is no more chance of eradicating hate, as there is love from our emotional base. This shows a lack of understanding and knowledge of the human condition and the fact that we have the ability to dream the highest aspirations yet have the body of a beast with all the functions in between.


As Freud rightly pointed out, our relation to our base instincts is fraught with difficulty. Our species has the same urges and potential modes of behaviour than other mammals and these need incorporating or transforming in our lives in some way. Sport is an excellent outlet for aggression, competition and fighting one's instincts and preferable to war. Mating rituals are also preferable to rape [10] and ownership laws preferable to theft. Freedom of expression is important for a population's well-being and restriction hinders the flow of material from the dream and retards personal growth. This may be intentional on the part of various governments, as an uneducated population is easier to control and encourages the projection onto the political leaders. This is what the leaders count on in some instances as it feeds their own power issues. It is easier to control an unaware child than a fully functioning, aware, freethinking and independent adult.
 and an elected government

All large movements in history, whether political or spiritual, have the idea of a universal system of order, in other words, an idea of unity. These include political systems such as Communism, Fascism, Liberalism and Conservatism. The same is true for religious systems, and both have caused major conflict and unspeakable atrocities. The United Nations grew from the debris of World War II and was set up as a peacekeeping force. As a peaceful organisation however, it lacks the power to reign in the larger nations that have their own agenda [11] and as such, is ineffectual in that realm. The other major problem are the UN's own agendas and the lack of connection to the individual.
 

The main points in this chapter all lead to the same conclusions, and they are that unity is universal but the idea of it varies considerably.

•All ideas come from the same place [12] in every individual and only express individually.

•Projecting one's idea of unity onto others is a mistake as others have their own idea whether they are aware of it or not.

•Forcing the idea onto others leads to a natural reaction and rebellion.


If the individual is the starting and ending point of all advances in growth and awareness, then this is where we have to start. In other words, the species can only grow through the growth of the individual. It is an illusion to believe that encouraging individuals to explore their inner nature and dream is easy. In some ways, it is recapturing the myth making of the ancients. It may take centuries or millennia for our species to come close to self-awareness. The groundwork exists however, in the works of the ancient philosophers such as Plato and Heraclitus, the undercurrent of Alchemy to our modern conceptions of psychology by Freud, Jung, contemporary psychologists and philosophers.


This is why it is important to include more art, dream work, mythology, indigenous belief systems (spirit of the land), psychology and philosophy in addition to the science and math subjects. More importantly, room for daydreaming and play throughout the education system in all years. Our western culture seems to be under the prejudice that play, creativity and daydreaming are for young children, maths and science, for adults.
