04:40 Jeff fills in the big blank between his careers in tech when he was “miserably successful!”and now in what is “consciousness work” in a framework that he calls “Qualence”.
09:58 How Jeff and Durwin started working together. Durwin explains.
12:30 Heidi asks the hard question: What is “IT”? Jeff explains the existential framework, what we know and what we don’t know, the dissociation of the spiritual and the material in our world view as the root of our existential crisis.
15:30 Working with Nassim Haramein to co-realize our sense of reality. Heidi proceeds and asks Durwin about what is “real” and what is “good” he replies with the progression from the “am” and the “I”, onto the “me” and the “my”, then to the “we” and the “us”, onto the “its”.
19:36 Jeffrey adds more details of the map of Qualia with its 4 quadrants and 8 intervals, the elements of agency and communion. It shows us the laws of consciousness like physics shows us the laws of nature, the form that explains the function.
23:05 We come down to something more concrete, a practice or exercise to illustrate the abstractions mentioned above. Jeff has a few questions “that will sound out of context – because they are!” He uses “goodness” as an example:
#1: To whom does your goodness belong? How many answers are possible? What are you part of?
#2: Where is your goodness emerging from and where is it flowing toward?
Jeff notes that there are only 3 possible answers to above 2 questions: to the Source, to yourself or to others.
#3: What does your goodness specifically consist of? All our qualitative attributes (which he lists). There’s a chart on his website.
32:57 The above exercise gives us a way to distinguish between an insight and an idea. Jeff expands.
#4: What is your goodness for? It is your potential for causing more goodness, according to Qualence, says Jeff. Our potential is our potential for causing more goodness, an improvement, from chaos to harmony.
38:32 Heidi gets personal and explains how the push for self-actualizations has emerged for her
40:52 The jump from survival and self actualization, where self actualization doesn’t mean self-sacrifice. Jeff claims the purpose of each human being is the same: to realize their goodness for the benefit of one another. We all have the same purpose but we each have a unique potential. Universal but particular!
43:25 Not about being good or not good as a moral point, but about goodness itself. But being “good” is a part of it.
45:18 Jeff defines goodness as”any attribute conducive to the improvement of life order.” He explains that we have been intuitively guided all along, that our intelligence is our capacity to realize our goodness, a qualitative directionality that guides our evolution to which we are intuitively connected, to our Divine Will.
47:05 The problem of Rational Fundamentalism, that is fundamentalism of any sort that devalues everything outside its province. Jeff expands that “spirituality is our capacity to align our free will toward an infinite, eternal, perfectly harmonious existence.”
49:10 From Rational Fundamentalism to Transcendental Intentionality. This is possible when people shift from the paradigm of the personal and particular self to the paradigm to the Holonic Self into a unified consciousness, like a whole population of an island that can unify when a tsunami is approaching. From competitors for life survival to being co-realizers for life fulfillment, which by definition means fulfilling our goodness potential for the benefit of one another-
51.15 Heidi asks doesn’t this require evolved people before it can happen? Jeff explains his faith in the millennial generation since 9/11 regarding a consciousness shift. He lists the many steps from the theory to a framework to a new perspective to expand our awareness to a willingness to its expression as new behavior.
54:00 How to reach those who have no interest in theory? Jeff sees possibilities. Heid and Mark reflect on their experience during this video. Jeff see this as possible without “sacrifice” as usually understood. Heidi relates to this. It must start with ourselves. Then you can collaborate with others.
1:00:57 Conclusions, final remarks, plans for continuation, Thank you’s and good-by’s.
