    I reblogged your post about Einstein because I thought it was wonderful. Thanks.

  3. GSFitzgerald says:

    Love your FB and blog, as well as Bob Ohearn’s too. Both keep me open and reinforce my realizations as well as motivate my activity to provide enlightened ideas to others. I share a lot of your stuff on my FB page. Hopefully I can get my blog up and running again soon, to contribute on a broader base to the cause. Peace ;-))

    I’ve lived in England for the past three years and it has profoundly changed my world view completely, along with my own research. I have read the Dhammapada, The Upanishads, The Gita, The Tao Te Ching half of the Richard Wilhelm translation of the Book of Changes, the entire Holy Bible, the Kybalion, the Emerald Tablets of King Thoth, and a few books by Thoreau, Whitman, Einstein, and Bruce Lee. I am in the middle of compiling a theory that unifies these concepts into a workable and successful social system and I would love your input. You seem well-spoken and better read than me and I’m tired and quite frankly done discussing things of this nature with people who neither understand it nor have any interest in it. I was wondering if you would be interested in offering your expertise on a few things, it would be much appreciated. I cannot offer you any compensation other than the joy of good conversation, as Thoreau writes “Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not; and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.”

  6. Hi Dylan. Its a time of great change now. The ideas are all here, rising up with many of us, the challenge in my opinion is how to help get them out to people in creative and interesting ways. Stories, videos, songs, art work, essays, etc. If you would like to write, great, and I’d be happy to read what you are writing. Please share here. But key is keeping your audience in mind. And also humility I think. Peace.

      hi Christopher,
      – have just sent off a grant application – small for them, big for me – to the Templeton Foundation – project title ‘Creative Systems Thinking – The world at Heart’ and have truthfully referred to borrowing the first term from you while mentioning that my concept of educating for creative systems thinking has developed completely independently from your work. I have also put you down as someone I’d like to work with. I have got the submission as pdf which I can send you. But it’s early days. They say they decide by Oct 15 but it’s unclear whether one has to do a full application on top of the initial one before or after that date. Thanks for all the inspiration coming my way from you and best wishes,
      PS Are you still in Japan? Or back in the US? The work I propose for the grant is educational psychodrama workshops for NGOs etc – world-wide if not, online. Take care,

    Hello Christopher,

    I liked your views , in Indian tradition mind has to be tuned and energized by sankalp ie combination of will power , knowledge power. power for action an energized mindful child when uses the language derived from sound leads to a thought , a thought so arrived gets converted in to action and creates. The education is all about recognizing this process and tuning your soul to justify its existence with awareness

How beliefs shape our thinking, how thoughts influence feelings, how emotions regulate our actions, the way we view problems and experience our lives’ (quet from your writting) and the problem is out side of what we thinking and it is possiblle o save the plant – fast.

    Hi Christopher,
    I find your great visualization Ego-logical vs. Eco-logical from year 2014 all around on the internet, but I can’t see it to bee CC-licensed.
    Is it ok to use it in teaching?

    Hello Christopher!

    I just scrolled through your page searching for a visual that you once made – unfortunately could not find it.

    On the left hand-side it has the title “love” – on the right hand-side it has the title “hate”. I found it somewhere on the net a few years ago, printed it (in quite poor quality) and have it hanging on my work-desk to see it every day.

    It was signed by you in 2015. Is there any chance you could share this picture in a high quality with me? I would like to frame it. It is such a great and inspiring visualization.

    Kind regards, Philipp

  34. Hi Philipp, I call that LOVE/HATE, but looks like I cannot easily upload the illustration here. Please send me an e-mail and I will reply with an attachment.

  35. A Portugese lady inquired about the Eonstei and the Poet – In Search of the Cosmic Man book. I asked her how she heard of it and she directed me to your page How Einstein Saw the World. It is such a joyfor me to be guided to your blog. I studied for my MS in Materials Science at Stanford, receiving it in 1975. I chose to help my mentor William Hermanns instead of entering into engineering. It was well worth the wisdom journey. Thank you, Christopher.
