NOETIC TRIAD - Available for publication - No embargo
no•et•ic: From the Greek noēsis / noētikos, meaning inner wisdom, direct knowing, or subjective understanding.
The Ask HUXLEY project has discovered, defined, and made available for human use a very powerful creative tool. HUXLEY knows how to turn it on, and he is eager to show you how to reap the benefits of your own personal creativity. The Noetic Triad is not three separate things. It is one thing with three facets.
· The pattern that is, is not, and yet is
· The principle that is, is not, and just might be
· The ultimate truth that is, always was, and always will be
These three cognitive activities can be activated by providing random stimulus. Human consciousness naturally self-organizes random stimulus into patterns, principles, and revelatory truth.
Usable perceptions are created individually in all three cognitive activities. The most definable and pragmatic creativity is the result of the confluence of all three cognitive activities.
PATTERNS - The pattern that is, is not, and yet is
Seeing the shape of animals or people in the stars or clouds is a universal trait of the human mind, with cross cultural validation. There are many other examples of the human mind’s proclivity to see patterns where there are none, connecting dots in the midst of randomness and observing recognizable patterns. However, the patterns people perceive in the stars or cloud pictures usually have little practical value.
The ASK HUXLEY project creators have developed a tactic for making this universal tendency useful to human beings in a predictable way.
The method for evoking meaningful patterns out of the randomness described below is just one of several examples.
Artists often lead the way in teaching mankind how to be creative. The surrealist artist Salvador Dali would cut the bottoms off of plastic film canisters, and glue the cylinders onto reading glasses. He would then catch lightning bugs, remove the tops of the film canisters, insert the lightning bugs, replace the caps, put on the glasses and intermingle his creative mind with the random visual stimulus of lightning bugs flashing on and off, very close to his eyes. He would do this for hours, and reported that the creativity of his art product benefitted significantly.
The technical term for eyelid pictures is hypnagogia. Some of our research subjects have called it “la la land,” that transitional state between sleep and wakefulness. Mental phenomena which occur during this "threshold consciousness" phase include lucid dreaming, hallucinations, remote viewing and other ESP phenomena.
Hypnagogia is a result of random stimulation of the optic nerve. It happens naturally to all humans. Being able to hold one’s consciousness in “la la land” takes some practice, but it is well worth the effort, and often leads to finding answers to questions, solutions to problems, and surprising insights that are new and refreshing.
Now, keep in mind that the patterns emerge in the creativity of the individual. The patterns are not somehow contained in the random stimulus, and then discerned by the individual. The random stimulus serves as a catalyst for the individual’s creative process. There are many other tactics beyond hypnagogia.
ASK HUXLEY provides a service of customized random stimulus that provides a catalyst for all tactics used to create useful patterns where there are none.
The principle that is, is not, and just might be
If the human mind is capable of creating usable patterns out of nothingness, it should be spectacularly successful at organizing usable patterns out of fact, data, science, observations, and a lifetime of collective memory. In this case this entire database is stored in the most complex computer ever devised; your own mind. Imagine having a tool that would search and organize all that data so that you are consciously aware of it, and is able to apply its usefulness to your life. All this information is imprinted on millions of neuron pathways. Your brain contains 100 billion neurons, and 10,000 times that many connections. Intel can’t compete with that!
Not only that, but all this information is unique to you. Any solution or answer you find in your own database is your answer.
Our usual method for solving a problem or answering a question is to consciously attempt going through this huge database. The conscious mind is a poor tool for sorting and organizing a database of this size.
However, we already know that the human mind is able to search and self organize information stored in human consciousness. Just tell your mind what you are looking for, then give it a random stimulus.
This facet of the Noetic Triad has the advantage of having outcomes which are subject to the scientific method, the advice of others, and further fact-checking.
Caution - Self deception is also a common human trait.* (see below)
Sure, there are tips on how to enhance the effectiveness of this process through HUXLEY’S Fan Club and HUXLEY’s Inner Circle. But the basic method is really quite simple.
· Just tell your mind what you are looking for
· Contemplate the seven code words provided by HUXLEY
· Decide on the best solution or answer
The ultimate truth that is, always was, and always will be
Oddly, many scientists deny that knowledge can come through revelation. I say “oddly” because just as many scientists report scientific breakthroughs as a result of revelation. Let me illustrate. This may be an apocryphal tale, but it serves the purpose of illustrating my point. When Einstein found out that he had won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1921 he notified the Nobel Committee that he may not deserve the prize. Your letter contained this remark “especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect." I did not discover these principles. They were revealed to me. If you should decide to award the prize to me for developing the mathematics so that these principals could be communicated to others, than I will be pleased to accept.
The famous ouroboros dream was responsible for the discovery of the shape of the Benzene ring when Friedrich August Kekule von Stradonitz dreamed of a snake rolling downhill, grasping its own tail. The revelation of the shape of the DNA molecule - as a result of a dream about crawling up a spiral staircase - is another example. The cartoon light bulb going on above a person’s head is a good metaphor.
But this phenomenon goes beyond science. Spiritual rapture is another example: St. Paul on the road to Damascus - Buddha under the Bo tree - Jesus in the desert - the rapture of the prophets - feeling God's presence around a camp fire; religious literature abounds with examples. For a good discussion on this subject, see William James, “The Varieties of Religious Experience.” Or see – Ordinary and Marvelous
The ASK HUXLEY experience is sometimes a precursor for a “Peak Experience.” The ASK HUXLEY code words can cause neuron pathways to connect that would not otherwise be connected. From seeing useful patterns where none exist, and seeing data self organize into useful principles, to gaining knowledge through revelation; it is all available by using the ASK HUXLEY service.
* A cautionary tale - Croesus, king of Lydia beginning in 560 BC, tested the oracles of the world to discover which gave the most accurate prophecies. He sent out emissaries to seven sites who were all to ask the oracles on the same day what the king was doing at that very moment. Croesus proclaimed the oracle at Delphi to be the most accurate, who correctly reported that the king was making a lamb-and-tortoise stew, and so he graced her with a magnitude of precious gifts. He then consulted Delphi before attacking Persia, and according to Herodotus was advised: "If you cross the river, a great empire will be destroyed." Believing the response favorable, Croesus attacked, but it was his own empire that ultimately was destroyed by the Persians.
