Ostracism Syndrome - Video

Maximiliano Haymann spoke about the cycle of power and and the Ostracism Syndrome, title of his recent book (Síndrome do Ostracismo: Mecanismos e Auto-superação, Editares, 2011), with interviewer Ton Martins in the show "Science and Consciousness" on TV Complexis (in Portuguese, with English sub-titles). The Ostracism Syndrome is a set of signs and symptoms characteristic of the consciential condition of unbalanced reaction to the rejection or loss of some sort of human power.

(English Subtitled video in Portuguese)

Heymann re-defines the syndrome as the abstinence of power or ex-celebrity syndrome -- a phenomenon that can be frequently identified in contemporary culture, based on fame, power, and status. Whether in the same life or from a past life, the individual stripped from his or her power, may feel political death, social exclusion, economic misfortune, artistic invisibility, or scientific loss of prestigue. This internal pathological condition leads to a difficulty to adapt to and thrive in its new condition and to develop healthy relationships with others.

Síndrome do Ostracismo is an excellent reference for those who have the requisite will to turn the complex exercise of power - an inevitable part of daily life and evolution -- into something more cosmoethical, universalistic, and maxifraternal. By facing power as something cyclical, that is acquired, exerted, rescinded, and distanced one can deal with the "ostracism" that follows in a healthy fashion. The work is written in a scholarly, didactic, and encyclopedic style, including techniques, case studies, therapeutic and prophylatic techniques and is based on the consciential paradigm, going beyond the study of ostracism itself and into its paragenetic causes and prevention.

The book is available in Portuguese, with a prefare by Dr. Waldo Vieira, progenitor of the sciences projectiology and conscientiology.

Emotional Coefficient: Our Focus on Psychology

by Nanci Trivellato

On October 1995, an article was published in the American Time Magazine which discussed, for one of the first times, studies related to the methods of measuring emotional intelligence (note: today we can acquire books on the topic). Surely, you have heard of the concept called I.Q. or intelligence coefficient, which evaluates the level or intellectual capacity of the person according to a determined type of reasoning.

The investigations of the International Academy of Consciousness have the purpose of establishing means of evaluating the abilities of persons in a more general level, in other words, that which is beyond the intellectual capacity, considering all of the individual’s manifestations, capacities, and developments, in an extensive manner, even considering other existences, arriving at a more correct evaluation for the level of global evolution of an individual. Recently published, the first edition of this examination of integral capacities is available, titled Conscientiogram.

Interestingly, in the Time Magazine article, one can observe how scientists, even the more conventional ones, come to the conclusion that more criteria are needed to evaluate the consciousness and that there are other levels of manifestations – getting closer to the scientific paradigms proposed by Projectiology. These scientists say that the I.Q. test is not sufficient to evaluate a consciousness, but only to evaluate one aspect of the consciousness. They are starting to realize that the sane manifestation of a consciousness does not depend solely on intelligence. As we know, there are very intelligent persons who are criminal masterminds, not having any type of ethics, making use of their intelligence for negative ends.

According to Dr. Goleman from Harvard University, the concept of intelligence is beginning to be reevaluated. With this, various concepts that we have been studying are starting to be more researched and valued in studies in a more general manner all over the world, anticipating positive changes in the analyses of the consciousness. Dr. Goleman says, in his own words, that “self-awareness and lucidity are possibly the abilities most important in a person, since they permit the exercise of self-control.” We can see the emphasis in lucidity being applied more by researchers of Psychology.

This group of scientists from various universities, such as New York, New Hampshire, and John Hopkins University, now speak of the E.Q., which is the test of the individual’s emotional coefficient.

Many experiments were performed in order to achieve these results. For example, one of these was to observe the reactions of children faced with an emotional dilemma. The experimenter invites children, one by one, into an empty room and begins to tell them that they can eat the only marshmallow that is there at the moment. He then explains that if they wait while he goes out to perform a task, the children will receive two marshmallows.

The result is that some children take the only marshmallow as soon as the experimenter leaves the room. Others take it minutes after, because they get tired of waiting. Yet others wait the whole time. The studies were performed years after this initial experiment, and the experimenters waited for the children to grow up in order to see how they developed throughout life. Then, they reached the conclusion that those children who were able to wait the whole time had the tendency to succeed in their objectives and relations. Those who gave up easily had a greater tendency to feel frustrated in life, with worst results in school and with little strength to realize their objectives.

Now the group of scientists has initiated studies beyond those of emotional control, and they begin to talk about things like the sensibility of persons who perceive others’ emotional states, without seeing the obvious clues or facial expressions of individuals. With this, they develop techniques for reading one’s body posture (beyond facial expressions) in detail, examining their intimate emotional state. We know that these studies represent a positive progress, given that they are a departure from conventional science. But when are they going to begin studies on the perceptions we have about someone despite the fact that they are far away and we are not able to see them? When are they going to start studying the control over energies that directly influences one’s emotions and that sometimes causes the person to deviate from his normal emotional state without reason?

It is difficult for science to study deeper topics of consciousness as a result of its paradigm. The leading theory followed today by conventional sciences is a materialistic model. This paradigm is known as the Physicalist-Newtonian-Cartesian, because it is based on the physical matter as its central point of focus.

The more ample and profound investigations of Projectiology are possible by the open and actual model that is used, called the Consciential Paradigm. The Consciential Paradigm is based on the consciousness and its manifestations as the central point of scientific focus.

With the deepest knowledge of the consciousness, along with the practical experimentation of certain phenomena, such as the conscious projection outside the body (astral projection, astral travel), the person can be able to amplify its self-knowledge, lucidity, and self-control. The consequences of this knowledge are positive ones and can be used in one’s development.

Consciential Manifestations

by Luis Minero

Our manifestations are powers of our consciousness, since through them we express ourselves and are able to be in contact with more developed or limited energies or ideas. Every time we act at any level, we emit energies. According to Conscientiology, we can didactically classify our manifestations or consciential powers in five ways:

  • Thought. Our thoughts act silently in according to us, whether they are positive, such as thoughts of improvement; or negative, such as thoughts on vengeance. Our thoughts act in a multidimensional way, reaching planes of existence which we do not visually perceive.
  • The second type of consciential manifestation or power is the word. Words can be expressed in a spoken manner or written manner, be it through discourse, prayer, books, anthems, and others.
  • The third type of consciential manifestation is action. This is any physical gesture or action that we make with our energies in every direction such as: moving our hand, dancing, walking, embracing, eating, and others.
  • In fourth place we have objects. These are objects that through ideologies or cultures they receive certain material powers, for example: the king’s scepter, the Olympic medal, the altar and all of its objects, the physical body of a model, a pyramid, etc. These objects are also a way for the consciousness to manifest itself.
  • Finally, we have the locale. This is the place where our manifestations are less disturbed and flow with more ease, such as the courtroom for a judge, the stage for the actor, the army quarters for the military leader, the football field for the player. These locales are the products of ideas manifested by the consciousnesses.

All of us express ourselves through all of these forms of manifestation, but with more or less degrees of emphasis on each one. In certain occasions we manifest ourselves in an ethical manner and in others in a less ethical manner, sometimes even being abusive or even aggressive.

All professional and average persons exercise their manifestations influencing society and in what is politically correct: the lawyer, the governor, the athlete, the doctor, the professor, the housewife, etc.

We must try to become aware about our influence in society, and we must begin to take responsibility over this. All of us have a task in our lives which we must complete; in other words, our manifestations should influence this society in a specific manner. We must begin to investigate our manifestations, and if these manifestations are lucid, assistential for the majority of society, or if these manifestations up to now have served to disturb, or become an obstacle to the manifestations of others, or an imposition of our manifestations upon others.

Studying our manifestations is something serious because it determines at the end of our lives, upon passing through physical death, whether we will be euphoric or melancholic, happy or sad with the results of our physical life.

We can begin to study our manifestations by asking ourselves, what are our priorities? What are we searching for, what do we consider important and what to we work towards? Some do not set many goals or objectives for themselves, others have priorities which are not the best, and only a few work towards more assistential objectives. The law of the jungle, or the survival of the fittest, is not an ethically good idea, or one in which we should base our priorities and manifestations.

We all come to this life to learn. We all have things to do, and this should be our priority. Our question now could be more complete: Are we currently manifesting with the objective to learn what we are here to learn, and do what we are here to do?

The out-of-body experiences, or astral projections, give us a vision, a point of view completely different that makes us prioritize certain more advanced activities.

We have a lot of potential for development, but because of our priorities, many times we do not develop these potentials and our manifestations become limited. One of the most important abilities that is limited by cultural ideas is the ability to project outside the body. This is one of the most natural potentials which we posses and that we are able to develop. The benefits of this ability can be compared to the benefits received from a person who is able to read. We can compare the life of someone like us who is literate to the life of someone else who is illiterate, and their capacity for learning is very limited and their total manifestation is likewise limited. The difference between a person who is able to project and a person who is not able to project is analogous to this example. Nevertheless, our priorities are affected by the conditioning we receive from our culture, the limitations we place on ourselves, and the repression that this cultural conditioning imposes on us.

The old saying that we all have heard: “Do not put off until tomorrow what you can accomplish today,” is still valid, but unfortunately, it has not been learned by the majority. The moment of change has not passed nor is it in the future. It is today; now. We must take control of our decisions and priorities in the present.
