Behold, O monks, this is my last advice to you. All component things in the world are changeable. They are not lasting. Work hard to gain your own salvation.
Shakyamuni Buddha’s last words

Nothing happend next

Young monk: What happens next?
Elderly monk: Nothing. This is it!

Love is the sea of not-being and there intellect drowns.
Rumi

This introductory page has no navigation aids, because once we have reached evolution’s glorious culmination in Wholeness, there is nowhere else to go, nothing else to do in life. We can just rest in Stillness, knowing that no one can return Home to Wholeness, for nobody has ever left Home. However, most of us have not yet awoken to Total Revolution. So to see how we could lovingly support each other in realizing our fullest potential as a Divine, Cosmic species, please press the back button on your browser or click one of the links in the text.

In the meantime, this page is a personal statement by the founder of the Paragonian Foundation, serving as an overview of the entire website.

By starting afresh at the very beginning, all the divergent streams of some fourteen billion years of evolution have converged in an unprecedented synthesis of everything at its Omega point, the Holy Grail or Philosophers’ Stone of human learning. The result of such wondrous creativity is not an object, like a sculpture or car, an idea, like a computer program or symphony, or a personal goal, like having children or winning a gold medal, with well-defined limits, as would be normal. Rather, it is Wholeness: Ineffable, Nondual Wholeness, a seamless, borderless continuum inaccessible both to the analytical mind and the physical senses.

Being guided by the fundamental design principle of the Universe, called the Principle of Unity—Wholeness is the union of all opposites—I have thereby realized that the Universe is not the physical universe of our senses, as materialistic science teaches. Rather, it is Consciousness, as the mystics have known for millennia, viewed as either an ocean or the coherent light of Consciousness. Having sucessfully reached evolution’s glorious culmination at the end of time, there is thus nothing more for me to say, do, or become in life. All that remains is to return Home to the bliss of Paradise, where we were all conceived both as individuals and as a species.

This website reflects my lifelong endeavours to find Love and Peace by ending the long-running war between science and religion, and thereby explain why the pace of evolutionary change is accelerating exponentially. But as evolution passes through the most momentous turning point in its entire history, the past is no longer relevant. No one can show another the Ultimate Cosmic Vision, anymore than they can describe a beautiful sunset to someone else over the telephone. This exquisite realization can only happen through profound self–inquiry, which liberates us from fear, from the personal, cultural, and collective conditioning that causes us to behave rather like blind automata.

We are all suffering from schizophrenia—literally ‘split mind’—to some extent, because for the last 5,000 years of human learning evolution has been more divergent than convergent, as we see in religious demarcations, academic specialization, and the division of labour in the workplace. So if Life, arising directly from our Divine Source, is to heal our fragmented minds in Wholeness, our inner Guru, literally ‘dispeller of darkness’—called Daimon, Genius, or the Muse by Greeks, Romans, and poets, respectively—needs to take the process of conceptual abstraction that we use to form concepts like human, primate, and mammal to its utmost level of generality.

It is thus through the awakening of self-reflective Intelligence, which tends to be stultified by the education system and other cultural influences, and which distinguishes human beings from the other animals and machines, like computers, that we can discover how to integrate all knowledge in all cultures and disciplines at all times into a coherent whole and so be led to realize our fullest potential as Divine, Cosmic beings.

What this means is that the ecological and economic crisis facing humanity today has no resolution within the framework of any civilization that promotes a work ethic that treats human beings as mere cogs in a bureaucratic, self-serving economic machine. Western civilization, in particular, has to die so that our children and grandchildren can live and flourish. For all this busyness prevents us from seeing that the great global crisis is psychospiritual in origin, inhibiting us from entering the Age of Light at the end of time, knowing that there is no death.

For when we consciously live in the Eternal Now, we egolessly die as separate individuals before the death of the body or the extinction of Homo sapiens sapiens ‘wise, wise human’, free of false immortality symbols that give us a precarious sense of security and identity in life, such as money and the belief in an immortal soul that either reincarnates indefinitely or has everlasting life after death.

This is absolutely essential for we cannot understand humanity’s relationship to God and the Universe from a narrow egocentric, ethnocentric, anthropocentric, geocentric, or kosmocentric perspective. We can only understand our origin and destiny as a species by standing outside ourselves, taking a Holoramic (‘Whole-seeing’) view of the Totality of Existence.

However, even when people sing songs saying, “We are all one!”, not separate from the Divine, Nature, or each other for an instant, or pay lip service to the Eternal Now, it seems that it is impossible to be completely free of our separate selves and the past and the future, which are just illusions, abstractions from or appearances in the vast Ocean of Consciousness, which is Reality.

We sometimes use words on our spiritual journeys to give ourselves some conceptual clarity, rather like the way that we might use a boat to carry us across a river, as Shakyamuni Buddha taught. But once we are on the other side, words are less necessary; they can become an unnecessary burden, especially when expressed through anxiety or wishful thinking.

So living in a grievously sick society that has taken complete leave of its senses, there is nothing more to say. Through what Heraclitus called the Logos—the immanent organizing principle governing the Cosmos—the information systems modelling methods of computer science and business have carried me to Ineffable, Nondual Wholeness, the True Nature of all beings in a holographic Universe, invisible to the categorizing mind. As the inherently unstable global economy is about to collapse like a house of cards, I can therefore do no better than follow these wise words of Lao Tzu in Tao Teh Ching:

He who knows does not speak.
He who speaks does not know.
Block all the passages!
Shut all the doors!
Blunt all edges!
Untie all tangles!
Harmonize all lights!
Unite the world into one whole!
This is called the Mystical Whole,
Which you cannot court after nor shun,
Benefit nor harm, honour nor humble.
Therefore, it is the Highest of the world.

Do we have the vitality to go beyond narrow, one-sided views of human life and to open ourselves to totality, wholeness? The call of the hour is to move beyond the fragmentary, to awaken to total revolution.
