exhilarate: to enliven; invigorate; stimulate; to make cheerful or merry.
In this Black Friday article in The Guardian, George Monbiot and other Systemic-Mind (green-to-teal) critics of neoliberalism are sure we need a new economic system to avoid catastrophe, and for all I know they are correct. That makes it all the more frustrating that these critics so far haven’t been able to design a better one.
In Lingua-U, the System’s Symbolic-Mind (𝌡𝌃) is the Yung Master at the Seat of Interiority at the Throne of Evolution, the first of nine stations of the Systemic-Mind (which corresponds to Green/Teal in Integral Theory). Related words at this Seat are Symbol, Sin, Situation, Psyche, Circle, and City.
Since Lingua-U arranges virtually every sound symbol in every language into a harmonious mandala, we may now ask: How does this systemic view of objective self grow up? What does it look like at, say, Global-Mind (turquoise) and Over-Mind (indigo)? After all, Systemic-Mind is the Yang to the Yin of Global-Mind, and the best features of each are ideally reconciled in the Yung of the Over-Mind. Surely it couldn’t hurt to wonder about this, at least as a fun challenge.
Lingua-U tells us that the Yin to the Yang of the System’s Symbols are words such as Up-Level, Apocalypse, Oppression, Approach, Guilt, and Gildedness (𝌪𝌃) at the Throne of Gaia. I think we can choose to see these words as an indication of the seriousness with which the turquoise consciousness arises. It is the first Station to see the Ecology in Crisis, the Earth as a Communal Ecosystem, and the need for an Up-Leveling Konstruct to Carry Us forward (all the words in capital letters are associated with this Station in Lingua-U).
What might the Over-Mind (the 6th-person-perspective in the language’s grammar) have to say about the way that Systems can be Up-Leveled, so that our Situation does not result in Apocalypse? Or: How can the Throne of Evolution and the Throne of Gaia be reconciled into a harmony? According to the Lingua-U Konstruct, the answer can be found at the Throne of Excitement. With the word Exhilaration (𝌳𝌃) (and the Serbo-Croatian word Opuʃtaai, meaning Loosening).
And so I’d invite us to reflect intuitively and with our highest sense of Self to see if there is a psychic or subtle wisdom in Exhilaration or Opuʃtaai which might help us to better see our Situation and derive an Approach.
Words such as Experience, Expression, Exit, Existence, Obedience, and Extra are important to this task. What I would propose is that the way forward to combining Systemic-Mind and Global-Mind insights is to design an Exit to our current systems based on the unstoppable requirements of Existence. Unless we Obey the requirements of perpetuating Existence itself, we cannot go forward. We must replace Gilded solutions (phony wealth, luxuries in a bubble of unsustainable wealth) with truly Excitement and Exhiliaration. In short, we need an economy based on providing human beings with enlivening and cheerful and merry Experiences with each other and the planet, generating happiness and a thrill for living not based on rampant consumerism.
Deep down, don’t we know that something like this is true? A shiny new giant-screen plasma TV or a Caribbean vacation is not necessary to increase life satisfaction. We need a culture based on self and collective Expressiveness, joyous and thrilling Experiences, in order to create Extra quality and abundance, not merely the illusion of wealth based on shallow satisfactions. The word Extraction is important to understanding the ultimate resolution of our experiences… do we persist in the Extractive and Exploitative processes of the systems of late capitalism? Are we sealed to the doom of Apocalypse on account of our Exploitation of Gaia? Or can we find an Īmaam (from the Arabic word for Model, Leader, Prayer Leader) with a way out? (In all the world’s languages, the only significant word to hold the subtle energy pattern of 𝌳𝌅, the Yung Master at the Seat of Goodness at the Throne of Excitement) is Īmaam, from Arabic.)
Our need for a new system is just the beginning. The exit may very well require new models, prototypes, and prayer leaders who can guide us into a new relationship to merriness and cheer. Perhaps we can only meet the world’s consumerism and materialism through a massive reconditioning of human beings warped by one dysfunctional system into new ways of relating to each other based on shared envigorating, enlivening experiences. Cultures and worldviews which can give people these experiences must rise up; cultures of death and dysfunction must recede.
In the Lingua-U Konstruct, such an answer is written in the phonemes of our Sacred Words, given to us now as a gift for up-leveling our imagination in pivotal times for our planet. When humankind rises from our current avant-garde of postmodern consciousness into higher and higher levels, we begin to bring online the capacity for enacting, constructing, and executing the visions that we need from deeper seats of truth.
