Your brain on Valentine

In a previous post, IAC blog contributor Nelson Abreu mused about the neural correlates of love as correlations, rather than causes of love. Even if people who have near-death and out-of-body experiences tend to identify themselves as a being beyond the brain, the brain is still very much involved in their physical experience as a sort of antenna or transducer of their more ample, multidimensional consciousness.

Today, we share this piece from Fast Company magazine on a researcher shares the latest on his exploration of the biochemistry and neuroscience related to emotions:

Though many resent the commercialization of the memory of Valentine, known not for chocolates for his sweetheart, but rather for selflessness to those in greater need. We will also leave you with correspondence from Leo Tolstoy to Gandhi and the Indian Independance movement, highlighting the centrality of love: "Why We Hurt Each Other: Tolstoy’s Letters to Gandhi on Love, Violence, and the Truth of the Human Spirit." 

This more cosmic love or maxi-fraternity, is the sentiment and value that inevitably emerges from our consciential evolution, whether brought about by near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, or other transformative experiences of life.  This perspective leads us to seek to evolve and help others evolve towards greater and greater realization of this cosmic fraternity.  Naturally, we seek a partner in life that shares these priorities of growth and altruism. We could call this type of couple, an evolutionary duo, subject of a course that is currently going on at IAC San Francisco and online. If you missed it, look for it at an IAC center near you or online.

Whichever kind of love you celebrate, we hope you enjoy your day. 

“Love is the only way to rescue humanity from all ills.” - Leo Tolstoy

"Love is metaphysical gravity" 
- Buckminster Fuller (Critical Path, 1981)

Description of the course "Evolutionary Duo"

This course explores the concept of the evolutionary duo, a couple who choose to spend their lives together romantically and with the aim of helping maximize each other's evolution. The course is perfect for individuals who are single and would like to find a more evolutionary partner; as well as for couples who want to evolve together more.

In an evolutionary duo, two mature lucid intraphysical consciousnesses with good affinity come together to carry out their evolutionary commitments (existential program or life mission), through a steady, positive, productive, wide-ranging, and holistic coexistence. The evolutionary duo is the epitome of synergy, with 1 plus 1 equaling more than 2.

Some characteristics of the evolutionary duo are mutual support and understanding, priority of multidimensional origins, evolutionary growth, priority of executing the existential program, living the admiration-disagreement binomial, affective-sexual bond, and putting 'ours' in front of 'mine' and 'yours.'

Some of main topics that will be explained and benefits of being in an evolutionary duo are:

  • Dynamization of both partners' evolution
  • Psychic abilities developed and exercised within the duo
  • Frequent telepathy
  • Maximum freedom in society, experienced within the duo
  • Recycling or inversion planned and executed in the duo
  • Cosmoethics developed and experienced in a twosome
The course will give tips for how to transform your current relationship into an evolutionary duo and, for those of who are single, how to attract such a partner into your life.
