examining the heart of existence

Welcome to Core Webworks, one of planet Earth's few online editorials whose focal point is the networking, support and development of those who are serious about a transformation in human consciousness. Online media relevant to a widespread transformation in human perception, values and ethics has become a normal part of society. Psychology is being increasingly unified holistically with the many layers of relevant sciences. Core Webworks is a contributor to this long tradition of spreading psychological and spiritual literacy around the world. On this network you'll find many old ideas that some might call timeless problems & solutions.

conscious reciprocity | game theory

An interaction might be win-win, lose-lose, or lose-win. In the world today, scientific and technological revolution has unharnessed undreamt of resources of power and knowledge. However, man has failed to discover in himself the sources of wisdom and compassion. What is needed is an inner revolution in the psyche of man. The insight that man lacks is the apprehension that he is the maker of his problems and that the root of this problem making machinery is his mind. It is this area of perception that the ultimate freedom of man lies.

Character and Cunning

As Goethe once said: "not the maker of plans and promises, but rather the one who offers faithful service in small matters. This is the person who is most likely to achieve what is good and lasting."

Less wishing and more practical setting of goals will go a long way.

"The sense of outrage as a society slips towards the abyss, or the sense of outrage when people mistreat you is muted. Everything is flattened by the banality of modernity. This is the heritage of all the bad little boys of the 18th century: Nietzsche, Darwin, Hegel, and Schopenhauer. These clowns were on a bad trip and they were loud about it. What they give us is a universe devoid of soul. Man looms larger and larger, notice the gender slant. Man looms larger and larger in the picture, and what this ushers us into is fascism, pure and simple." (Terence McKenna)

 

Revolution / Rebellion

Somebody asked J.Krishnamurti about Gandhi's struggle for the untouchables to be permitted into the temples. And do you know what JK said? He said, "But God is not in the temples." This is rebellion.

"God is not in the temples, so why bother? It is stupid." All revolutions are reactionary, reactions to a certain pattern. The deep down substratum is the same.

[The Heart Sutra, Ch.10, Sannyas: entering the stream]



Individuality

"When we talk about settling the world's problems, we're barking up the wrong tree. The world is perfect. It's a mess. It has always been a mess. We're not going to change it. Our job is to straighten out our own lives."
(Joseph Campbell)



"Collectivism holds that the individual has no rights, that his life and work belong to the group (to "society," to the tribe, the state, the nation) and that the group may sacrifice him at it's own whim to it's own interests. The only way to implement a doctrine of that kind is by means of brute force - and statism has always been the political corollary of collectivism."
(Ayn Rand, 33, Racism)



The very highest is barely known.
Then comes that which people know and love.
Then that which is feared,
Then that which is despised.
Who does not trust enough will not be trusted.
When actions are performed without unnecessary speech,

People say, "We did it ourselves."

(Tao Te Ching, v. 17)
