spiritWhat gave the most problems with yesterday’s post, was to see the spirit as objective. But that was mainly because I only used 4 signs in that model.

If I take all the signs, there are 3 fire signs that I can call spirit.

The one I called yesterday ‘objective personal spirit’ in my version of Integral theory, was called ‘primordial spirit’ in my previous mentioning of Zodiac models.

There are three different signs that can be called spirit: Impulsion, Expression and Vision (resp. aries, leo and sagittarius) Read the rest of this entry »

complementsThis post is going to be published because I have to get one done today, not because I totally agree with myself on this one yet.

I am tying to get the difference clear between objective and subjective, yin and yang, male and female, positive and negative, active and passive, mind and soul, body and spirit. Are they all two sides of the same coin, or is it more difficult.

In the Zodiac there are 4 signs that reflect it best I think (at this moment) so I uploaded those with a general description. The other 8 signs are not included yet because it would be to complicated at this point. So for now it are just the 4 cardinal signs of the Zodiac, aries/libra and capricorn/cancer.

Defining Art

August 12, 2009

SciencesThese last days I have been discussing art as a result of several previous posts. The first of those post was The Judgement of Art where I mainly try to understand what the philosophy of Adorno is saying.

Then in the second post, The Subject of Beauty, I try to place art in the system I am trying to develop about the similarity between Integral theory and the Zodiac and in my last post about it, Aesthetic theory, I try to analyse art to see what it is and what it is not, using words based on my own understanding.

So now I am trying to find the place it has in Integral theory and the Zodiac (most recent post on that theory is Trying to understand each other) to see what can be a definition that is broad enough to cover art and precise enough to differ it from other parts of life.

The Judgement of Art

August 3, 2009

bToday I did not get to blog what I had planned. I read a discussion about art which got my attention. The titel was: Is the judgement of art a subjective thing? And that is something I had been thinking about a lot lately.

I also had discussed that on a music forum a while ago and someone there pointed me to the work of a philosopher called Adorno. I had never heard of him but he seems to talk about Aesthetics. Read the rest of this entry »

Cycle of Life

July 30, 2009

(I changed the definitions ‘individual’ and ‘universal’ in the four quadrants into ‘personal’ and ‘impersonal’ in my later posts. The reason is here)



1. Impulsion (aries)

New beginnings, the start of new cycles, birth, vitality. Aggressive, willful, assertive. Focused in short bursts, unlikely to sustain interest in the long term. Adventurous, pioneering, warrior-type energy, impatient, works best alone. Unconcerned with approval or acceptance. Lacks persistence and stamina. Honest and forthright.

1So the theories I want to compare, are ‘integral theory’ and ‘the zodiac’. Although the words can be used different from how I mean them, most will agree in very general that both have the potential to cover ‘everything’.

The zodiac divides the whole in 12 and integral theory, in its very basic form, in 4. But the zodiac can also be brought back to a very basic form of 4. The very core of the zodiac are the 4 elements, fire, water, air and earth.

But their essence is not the same as the 4 quadrants of integral theory. Read the rest of this entry »
