The Idiot Guide to Consciousness presents a novelty approach to consciousness research. The author shows that boosting our level of self-awareness can be undertaken as a deliberate activity, and has nothing ‘magic’ about it. 5000 years of patriarchy by and large suppressed the intuitive wisdom of the ancient world and replaced it by large-scale dogmatism and the control of the individual by first the ecclesiastical dominators and later the nation states with their blown-up police forces, their secret agents, and their fast growing prison miles. This led to more and more people being discarded out of mainstream society because of their intellectual, emotional and sexual difference.
However, people often do not realize their highest potential because they lack a critical mindset in the face of conformity pressure and the general solidifying framework of modern consumer culture that models citizens instead of accepting them as they are – in their full humanity. To develop humanity at a level beyond the norm, self-awareness and critical thinking must go together, whereas mere criticism leads to inevitable projections.
The approach the author has taken is to combine insights from his background in law and political science with consciousness research, and to offer the reader practical work tools for developing self-awareness.
Consciousness boosting is achieved through writing statements where the reader intuits their present level of awareness in all areas treated in the guide, that is General Level, Love, Power, Science, Health, Emotions, and Peace. After having done this awareness check, consciousness will do the rest, for it is self-healing, self-cleaning, self-renewing and self-progressing from the moment the person sees herself without projections and self-delusion.
