ABOUT THE WORK AND IT’S FOUNDATION
The 4D model of human being-ness has its foundation in the work of Barbara Ann Brennan, NASA Physicist and a Healer who attempted to provide a framework in which different techniques could be developed and used to help us in difficulties that we face as human beings.
As any how-the-world-works model, physical or metaphysical it is a metaphorical representation of reality. Of course, it is necessary to ‘put it to the test’ through as-neutral-as-possible observation of the world inside and outside of us. As long as they fit together we can use it, and if something doesn’t fit we have to adapt or change it however great the resistance is. And we do defend our models with blood, sweat and tears.
We have inherited models through upbringing and DNA, we did modify them through dramatic events in early childhood and in time we did solidify them into what the life | universe | everything is (and no, it’s not 42).
The model becomes The World.
Building blocks are very simple and arise from our fear from unknown – so we put things in boxes with labels and forget about the complex content, just the labels stay. Then we use labels to build more or less complex belief systems. These can, after a while, withstand 100% bullshit factor and lack of data; they can be even be beautiful and refined and just as ignorant. And please do not think that it doesn’t apply to you.
‘I am all love’ is just as distorted as ‘All woman are bitches’.
You will find evidence to support your Model in everyday life, over and over again, day after day and it will look like the world is providing them when actually it’s the distorted interpretation of fucked up measurement system. We will simply pick things that support our Model.
Personally I think that the basic fundamental skill or awareness to be developed on any journey is awareness of the model we are using, and its limitations, failures and successes, it’s impact on our life and the life of others.
Avoid generalization, collect data, reevaluate what you know, seek what you long for, question everything, stay in tune with your feelings.
There is a danger in knowing. When we Know we stop exploring. We stop growing. So a little bit of reasonable doubt, little bit of child’s curiosity, little bit of wonder can go a long way. Still some things are certain. If you are reading this you are alive. Someday you won’t be. All man must die. But first we’ll live! It is our task to do something with the time we have, for us and for others.
In my personal opinion the 4D model is the best attempt so far to describe and deal with underlying structure of human consciousness extending from our thoughts, feelings, intentions to our actions, our physicality and generally our place in this amazing world we live in.
