Pillars of Belief
The Cosmological Question:
How did our physical universe first come into being, and what are the physical laws that govern its past, present, and future functioning?
With regard to the functioning of the physical Universe, Adherents to the Left‑Systemist position on Professor Parsons’ Sociological Bar Graph, like Adherents to the Right-Systemist position believe that our physical Universe began in a blinding flash of the Big Bang at which point all matter in the Universe began to expand out-and-away from every other such ultimately-irreducible integer of matter, and that this expansion of the Universe will continue until the impetus imposed upon all matter by this Cosmic event is spent.
However, Left-Systemist Adherents believe that our physical Universe originally issued forth from an Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated CONSCIOUSNESS. This Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness simply IS. And it always has been existing. In this regard, the Cosmological Belief of Adherents to the Seventh Paradigm Worldview differs from the Cosmological Belief the First Paradigm Worldview, which holds NO such specific Belief about the initial Source of the physical Universe. And this Cosmological Belief of Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm (“Theistic”) Worldview differs from the Cosmological Belief of Adherents to The Second Paradigm (“Dialectical”) Worldview in that Adherents to The Second Paradigm Worldview hold the Cosmological Belief that the physical Universe has always existed.
Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm (“Theistic”) Worldview hold the Cosmological Belief that the physical Universe was created at a specific point by The Infinite & Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness and that the physical Universe will exist for a finite amount of time, just once, from its creation (or “Emanation”) by The Infinite & Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness until “The Purusia” (a point marked not by some physically preordained event but, instead, a point marked by the achievement of a specific Theological event… the achievement by our human species (or our progeny) of “Perfect Consciousness” and (at that point) either our success or our failure in some Cosmic Test which is the ultimate purpose of the Creation of the physical Universe (and our human species) by The Infinite & Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness.
This is a Cosmological Belief which differs fundamentally from the Cosmological Beliefs of both Adherents to The First Paradigm Worldview and Adherents to The Second Paradigm Worldview.
Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview believe that the original pre-cursor unit of “matter” evolved out of an initial discontinuity (or singularity) in the sea of eternal Undifferentiated Consciousness. In this singularity, the Infinite and Eternal Sea of Un-differentiated Consciousness is, therefore, BEING. But it is not a noun. It is, rather, a non-transitive verb of “being.” Most importantly, however, this BEING is not a function of the physical inter‑play of Mass and Energy which makes up the physical Universe.
Rather, the physical Universe is a function of this CONSCIOUSNESS. Indeed, according to the Cosmology of The Seventh Paradigm Worldview, this CONSCIOUSNESS enfolded into being the physical Universe, in the form of the original dis-continuity which pre‑existed the “BIG BANG”. Pursuant to the process which was discussed in the First Paradigm Cosmology, Adherents to this Seventh Paradigm Worldview believe that this original dis-continuity evolved into the original unit of matter, and this unit of matter contained within it all of the sum total of all “Matter” in the Universe (compacted down into a state of Absolute Mass).
This CONSCIOUSNESS exists outside of the physical Universe. But the physical Universe is, indeed, made up of Consciousness, merely manifest in a different form, i.e. matter.
This CONSCIOUSNESS is infinite in volume, filling all space beyond the physical boundaries of the physical Universe (whether the physical Universe is manifesting itself, at any given point in time, in its Ultimately‑ Expanded form of Absolute Energy, in its Ultimately‑ Contracted form of Absolute Mass ‑ or in any of its many interim forms of MIXED‑Mass and Energy).
This “CONSCIOUSNESS” of The Cosmos (which is not actually of The Universe at all ‑ because it preceded, indeed, pre‑existed the physical Universe) stands above and outside of “Time,” merely observing all “Time”.
Adherents to the Left‑Systemist position along Professor Parsons’ Sociological Bar Graph are, then, “THEISTS.”
Very importantly, such Theists believe that this INFINITE SEA OF UNDIFFERENTIATED CONSCIOUSNESS is capable of Physically INTERVENING in the material Universe ‑ to set aside, or to temporarily abridge, the functioning of the natural laws of physics which otherwise operate automatically within the Universe.
One need only request The Deity to so intervene on one’s behalf. The most thorough recent explication of this “Emanationist” Cosmological Belief has been set forth by Professor Robert Boehm in his work entitled The Implicate Order.
The Teleological Question:
Is there a specific direction in which our physical universe is unfolding, and if there is, what is the role of our human species, if any, in this unfolding?
The human species stands in a unique relationship to the Universe ‑ and to The Infinite Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness from which the physical Universe was enfolded into being. Indeed, all of “history” is simply the unfolding of the consciousness of the human family into unity with The Infinite Consciousness of The Universe. Thus, the very reason for the Universe is to provide a medium within which the human species can draw itself into the state of “perfection” which will manifest itself at the point in history at which a critical mass of the human family reach the self‑conscious state of knowing that our self-consciousness is ONE WITH THE INFINITE CONSCIOUSNESS. The Left‑Systemists are, indeed, the Ultimate Champions of the idea of “The Perfectibility of The Species in God”. Indeed, it is the arrival at this point in history which will mark the ONLY true “End of History.”
Indeed, while The Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness is not a “human being”, it is “BEING” and, from outside Itself, It would be perceived as A “BEING” (i.e. a NOUN) even though it is only a VERB. However, perceived as a Noun, this Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness (or “BEING”) intends that our Human Species perfect ourselves. As if It wills it. Whereas, in actuality, It merely causes this to occur.
The question occurs as to The Direction this Consciousness into Matter Process is taking. This question of purpose, in the classical Theological Worldview, translates into the following Myth. The question is; What does this ‘Myth’ mean?
First, The Myth:
It is asserted, within the Teleological Belief System of the Classical Theist, that The Infinite & Eternal Sea of Un-Differentiated Consciousness, i.e. “The Godhead”; i.e. “The ONE ‘Thing’ That Is NOT a ‘Thing’ Among Other ‘Things’ ”; “The Unbegotten Being” generated the initial singularity so that BEING might experience infinite & eternal Unitive Being “More Abundantly.”
The only way to do this was to experience differentiation (along with its intrinsic anxiety and tension) so that, after the differentiation, Infinite & Eternal Being would be capable of experiencing more than in its original Infinite and Eternal configuration.
However, as a remnant of that original experience of differentiation, the Infinite & Eternal Un-differentiated Consciousness generated the present Physical Universe, along with Sentient Beings. This experience is The Creation of THE BEING OF LIGHT (Lucifer) a differentiated BEING which possessed total Free Will from The Infinite & Eternal BEING, and who fell prey to THE TEMPTATION to exercise the ability of Infinite Being (to manifest whatever form of physical “reality” said Being wished to manifest) BUT WITHOUT PAYING HEED TO the fact that said Infinite Being was, in fact, “Created Being” (Created by Infinite & Eternal BEING) indeed, without acknowledging that said Infinite Being ought to exercise its Infinite Power of Manifestation only in accordance with The Will of THE INFINITE & ETERNAL BEING, as an act of complete Free Will (as the perfectly appropriate response to the “Awe & Worship”) to which INFINITE & ETERNAL BEING was entitled as a matter of Cosmic harmony.
So, when the “Created” failed to recognize, through “Awe & Worship”, that it should exercise even its perfect FREE WILL in full accord with THE WILL of INFINITE & ETERNAL CONSCIOUSNESS, said “Created” was banished forever from the presence of INFINITE & ETERNAL CONSCIOUSNESS.
However – even though the “Created” could never, through its own action redeem itself, INFINITE & ETERNAL CONSCIOUSNESS chose to try it one more time, again generating a singularity in THE FIELD of INFINITE & ETERNAL CONSCIOUSNESS, and allowing this second “Created Being” to have access to the same temptation and, by experiencing this same temptation and overcoming it, have an opportunity to know compassion through the original “Created” and, through the second “Created Being’s” demonstration of love and compassion toward all of those who know the temptation of true evil, and succumb to it, including toward the original “Created” grant to the original “Created” the forgiveness of which IT had not been originally capable.
THIS, then, is the purpose of The Creation (or the Teleological objective) of the Universe, according to the Left-Systemist Worldview.
Now, what does this Myth mean? What it means is this:
Adherents to the Classical Theist Worldview believe that temporally, and prior to the initial physical incarnation of previously Infinite and Eternal Consciousness into the very first unit of physical matter (i.e. into the very first “Choate” quantum field which condensed out of the “quantum foam” of The Infinite & Eternal Sea of Un-Differentiated Consciousness into the very first “Singularity”), the Infinite & Eternal Sea of undifferentiated Consciousness had previously generated a differentiation of consciousness which had NO physical dimension whatsoever, but which did have some degree of separateness from the original Infinite & Eternal SEA of previously Totally Undifferentiated Consciousness. This was LUCIFER.
This Initial Being was capable of creating other Beings, which it did, in the form called “Angelic Beings.” This Initial Being (which existed only in a non-physical dimension prior to the creation of our physical Universe) became so enamored of its ability to create other “Beings” and phenomena that this “Initial Being” actually began to perceive its self as not dependent upon The Infinite & Eternal SEA of Previously-Undifferentiated BEING (i.e. Undifferentiated Consciousness). This perception on the part of this Initial Being caused a cleft – or separation – to occur between The Infinite & Eternal Sea of Previously-Totally Undifferentiated Consciousness and this Initial Being. Experiencing this cleft, this Initial Being had the choice of turning back toward Infinite & Eternal Undifferentiated Consciousness (thereby yielding itself back to Infinite & Eternal Un-Differentiated Consciousness) through the act of “AWE & WORSHIP” and thereby losing its “SELF,” or choosing to turn away from Infinite & Eternal Undifferentiated Consciousness, re edifying its “SELF” as separate and apart from Infinite & Eternal Undifferentiated Consciousness. This was done simply by withholding the conscious act of “AWE & WORSHIP” from Infinite & Eternal Undifferentiated Consciousness (which remained with, indeed within, the Initial Being – even while it was able to experience being a separate & distinct Consciousness.)
Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Theist Worldview hold the Teleological Belief that this Initial Being chose the second course of action because it became enamored in being able to create manifestations out of “Consciousness,” not of the experience of Being “separate and apart.”
This is “THE GREAT LUCIFERIAN TEMPTATION, according to the Belief system of Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Theist Worldview. It is the will to power, the attachment to wanting to be GOD… i.e. loosing one’s immediate experience of “AWE & WORSHIP” of Infinite & Eternal Undifferentiated Consciousness while still being in an actual state of de facto “separateness.” And nothing will threaten to bring on this state of loosing one’s direct and immediate experience of “AWE & WORSHIP” of Infinite & Eternal Undifferentiated Consciousness quite like the act of creating actual manifestations out of Consciousness (i.e. directly out of the “Quantum Foam” of The Infinite & Eternal SEA of Undifferentiated Consciousness.)
And this is the next step in biological evolution which our human species homo sapiens is on the very brink of entering upon, as we reach into the very heart of matter in our quest to explore the Quantum Field. This quest is a search for a source of power, and the source of “Infinite BEING.” Or, more to the point, seeking the source of “Infinite Being” to re-experience the original LUCIFERIAN TEMPTATION and this time succeed where Lucifer and his followers originally failed by overcoming the temptation.
This will be accomplished by being able to love every other human being and every other sentient Being, no matter how evil (or “Fallen”) they appear to be (i.e. how attached they appear to be to asserting their power over created reality) because we can continue to perceive within them Infinite & Eternal BEING no matter how masked this BEING is from us in our apparently separate state.
Or we, as homo sapiens, may fail – as The Initial Being and its followers failed… casting ourselves into eternal separateness… by physically destroying ourselves through an errant attempt to direct the technology through which we access this realm of the “Quantum Foam” toward physical destruction of some “Ultimate Other” or, perhaps, even through an errant attempt to direct this technology toward a creative act (of creating material manifestations out of the realm of the Inchoate Quantum Field into material reality… and become so enamored of our power that we create the source of our own destruction in a manner which separates our Consciousness from The Infinite & Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness… thus causing us, as The Infinite & Eternal’s Second Creation, not only to fail in our intended mission (of potentially redeeming the Being of Light and its fallen followers) but to join the fallen in a self-created eternal state of separateness from Infinite & Eternal Undifferentiated Consciousness.
The most thorough recent explication of this Theistic evolutionary Teleological Belief has been set forth by the Jesuit paleontologist Teilhard de Chardin in the following work: The Phenomenon of Man (Harper, New York, 1959);
The Ontological Question:
How did sentient consciousness come into being (especially human consciousness)?
As one can foretell from the above discussion of the Cosmological and Teleological Beliefs of Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Theistic Worldview, the Cosmic Question as to how human consciousness came into being is answered in the Seventh Paradigm Worldview by the belief that each manifestation of human consciousness is, indeed, a node of the Infinite & Eternal Sea of previously Undifferentiated Consciousness… which, Itself, has always existed. The dynamic by means of which these apparently separate nodes of human consciousness came into separate materially incarnated physical being is explained by the answer to the Teleological Question. The ultimate source of human consciousness is explained by the answer to the Cosmological Question governing the source of the physical Universe. Human Consciousness, like the physical Universe in which we presently find human consciousness incarnated, is made up of a temporarily differentiated portion of the original Infinite & Eternal Sea of previously Undifferentiated Consciousness. But IT has always existed… even though said consciousness has not always possessed a physical manifestation.
This, then, is the answer which Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Theistic Worldview provide to the Ontological Question as to the source of human consciousness.
The Epistemological Question:
What are the means by which we as human beings are capable of discerning the facts that constitute the answer to ultimate cosmic questions such as these?
Adherents to the Left‑Systemist position along Professor Parsons’ Sociological Bar Graph (The Seventh Paradigm Theistic Worldview) believe in the utilization of every means which is available to the human being by means of which to determine the facts, truth and reality. This would include one’s own individual experience through all five of the traditional physical human senses acknowledged by Adherents to The First Paradigm Worldview; the core Intellectual insight recognized by Adherents to The Second Paradigm Worldview as an additional source of factual data; the four additional Epistemological means recognized by Adherents to the Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Paradigm Worldviews , and also the phenomenon of personal and collective recourse to prayer to gain access to the truth. This practice of prayer takes the form of personally asking The Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness to communicate what the facts are.
A second form which this practice of prayer takes is the undertaking of a very special practice of Adherents of the Left‑Systemist position of engaging in a conscious effort of allowing the boundaries of their individuated consciousness to “dissolve away” and to, thereby open themselves to the Unitive Consciousness of The Infinite and Eternal Sea [which these adherents believe pervades not only the infinite reaches of Space outside of the physical parameters of the physical Universe, but which is also located within every point of the manifest material Universe as well ‑ therefore being always and everywhere present and available as a source of factual knowledge of the data relating to all material things and events within the Universe – as well as outside the physical Universe.
It is this additional access to purely factual data pertaining to the internal events and goings on inside and outside of the physical Universe that the adherents of the Left‑Systemist position bring to the task of determining the facts which sets them apart, categorically, from others engaged in this same inquiry.
Mode of Ethical Reasoning
Every decision made by a systematic Adherent to the Left‑ Systemist Worldview is made pursuant to an adherent’s effort to discern the will of God pertaining to that decision ‑ that is: to determine (through an exercise of all methods of determining the facts [including one or both of the modalities of prayer identified therein] ) what particular choice, from among those which are available to the adherent, is most consistent with the will of the Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness which enfolded into being the entire physical Universe, which entirely pervades every point of this material Universe at every moment, and to which each such adherent owes his or her very continuing life ‑ so as to comport his perfecting of the Human Family… and which It has intended since the moment at which It enfolded into being this physical Universe.
Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview hold the Cosmological belief that our physical universe began as the intentional emanation into physical manifestation from and by the Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness.
Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview hold the Cosmological belief that this single intentional act on the part of the Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness resulted in the manifestation, within the theretofore Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness, of first one, and then two singularities (i.e. two distinct points of dis-equilibrium), one “positive” and the other “negative.”
Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview believe that, immediately following the manifestation of these two points of voltage differential within the otherwise entirely homogeneous Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness, there flowed between these points a wave of energy. This wave of energy set up a field of dis-continuity in the vicinity around its pathway through theSea of Undifferentiated Consciousness. This field then collapsed into the first particle of mass. This first mass constituted an even greater discontinuity within the otherwise perfectly homogeneous Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness, thereby generating around itself an even greater field of discontinuity. This greater field of discontinuity thereupon collapsed into a second particle.
This process repeated itself, over and over again, until there existed a large number of sub-atomic particles which eventually condensed into hydrogen (and some helium and lithium) atoms in the Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness.
Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview, like adherents to The First Paradigm Worldview recognize that every complex combination of matter is ultimately disintegrating into their smaller constituent, ultimately non-divisible units of matter).
Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview believe, further, as do adherents to The First Paradigm Worldview, that each such ultimately-irreducible integer of matter in our physical universe is, at the same time, repelling itself out and away from every other such ultimately-irreducible integer of matter in our physical universe.
However, while adherents to The First Paradigm Worldview believe that this contemporaneously-occurring expansion and disintegration of all matter in our physical universe has been going on since very early in our physical universe, and that this will continue to go on up to the point in time at which every single ultimately-irreducible integer of matter in the entire physical universe (of which adherents to The First Paradigm Worldview believe there exist only a fixed and finite number which were created at the instant of the original “Big Bang”) will stand separate and apart from each and every other such ultimately-irreducible integer of matter in the entire physical universe;
while adherents to The Second Paradigm Worldview believe that, at that precise point in time, the expansion of our physical universe will STOP expanding out and away from the original locus of the Big Bang, stopping our physical universe from ultimately disintegrating into nothingness for all the rest of eternity, and believe that, after stopping its theretofore X billion-year expansion, our physical universe will stand in a state of equilibrium for a brief moment and it will then begin to collapse back in upon itself , thereupon re-constituting itself back into singularities; waves of energy; particles of mass, all the way back into planets; stars; solar systems; star clusters; galaxies etc.;
while adherents to The Third Paradigm Worldview believe that neither of these two alternative options is a predetermined fact but, rather, believe that whether our physical universe will expand forever or will ultimately stop and collapse back in upon itself is the function of an existential choice which is being made every day by individual human beings by their either lending the power of their mind to the holding of the universe together through an exercise of their existential hope followed up by their actions taken in accordance with that hope or their lending the power of their mind to the ultimate disintegration of our universe through their embracing of despair and their engaging in conduct every day that puts their despair into action; and adherents to the Fourth Paradigm Worldview believe that any one of these three alternative hypotheses might well be true – and that some fourth hypothesis might just as well be true depending entirely upon what the most up-to-date physical data confirms to be true,
adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview believe that the ultimate destiny of our physical universe is escatological – that is, that our physical universe is unfolding toward a single end, this being THE ESCATON.
This Teleological Belief of adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview is best articulated by Catholic Jesuit Priest Teilhard de Chardin in his work entitled “The Phenomenon of Man.”
Pursuant to this Teleological Belief, adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview believe that the individuated nodes of Consciousness which are transformed from the Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness through the conditioned state of a singularity (or an “inchoate quantum field”) into physical units (in the form of “energy” or “mass”) rise into more and more complex entities of combined mass, energy and consciousness until such complex collectives become, first, minimal consciousness, then SELF-Conscious collectives, then SELF-Conscious and conscious (at the same time) of The Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness from which they came (and of which they are still a mere manifestation), then finally, SELF-conscious, conscious of the Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness, and capable (at the same time) of one-to-one UNITIVE CONSCIOUSNESS WITH The Infinite and Eternal Sea of Undifferentiated Consciousness.
This Worldview entails a belief in a type of reincarnation of a single individuated nodule of Consciousness from an initial primitive degree of consciousness into more and more complex (i.e. more-and-more highly conscious) confluences of mass, energy and consciousness until such point that our Earth (our Solar System?, our Galaxy?, our Universe?) is inhabited by Sentient Beings, a critical mass of which have all reached a state of consciousness at which the individual members of this species are capable of manifesting material objects out of pure consciousness – and, thereby, directly effecting physical reality by means of their conscious attention.
This conscious intentionality, pursuant to this Seventh Paradigm Worldview, plays a direct role in the Teleology of the physical universe.
Pursuant to the Teleological Belief of adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview, if a sufficient number (i.e. a “critical mass”) of these sentient species have reached the point in their biological evolution such that individual members are able to directly effect the physical matter of the universe through the intentional direction of their consciousness and, at that point, heed the WILL OF THE INFINITE AND ETERNAL SEA OF UNDIFFERENTIATED CONSCIOUSNESS that each such Being:
(A) Love THE INFINITE AND ETERNAL with whole mind, with whole heart and with whole soul;
(B) Love each and every other Being as THE INFINITE AND ETERNAL loves each such Being; and
(C) Seek to do the will of THE INFINITE AND ETERNAL in all things, then this love will supply the added bonding force in the physical universe such that the physical universe will not expand out and away forever, but will, once it reaches the state of Absolute Energy (into which the physical universe will eventually expand) , instead will be drawn back into forming a physical universe of harmony, beauty, love, happiness and abundance in sympathetic resonance with the love vibrations sent out into the physical universe by members of this (these) species during the time of their physical existence within the universe.
Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview adhere to an Ontological Belief that Human Consciousness is in fact an intimate emanation of THE INFINITE AND ETERNAL SEA OF UNDIFFERENTIATED CONSCIOUSNESS which existed before the emanation of Consciousness into matter.
Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview hold the Epistemological Belief that we, as human beings, have access to a greater truth than that which we can experientially obtain from raw materialist data which we can directly physically experience through our own personal five physical senses of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing. This is because we not only have the ability, through the exercise of our human mind, to discern patterns within the data which we can then project out beyond the confines of our five physical senses to ascertain a more complete (i.e. more “perfect”) possible Reality. This projection constitutes data pertaining to reality which is beyond the reach of our five physical senses and which reveals more than a mere random function of the inter-play of purely physical forces in a random universe, indeed more than just a mere dialectical pattern which underlies – and supersedes – the otherwise apparent chaos of the random universe, so as to present us the dialectical choice between two available options at each juncture of human decision, thereby providing us a psychology of choice, a much more satisfactory psychological state of mind than being mere flotsam of random consciousness in an entirely chaotic physical universe – and, indeed, more than just a simple physical unity among all of the physical units of matter within the physical universe. Adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview hold the Epistemological Belief that we, as human beings, have access to total truth by opening the self in prayer to the very INFINITE AND ETERNAL SEA OF UNDIFFERENTIATED CONSCIOUSNESS from which we came into this physical universe and within which we still remain in perfect union.
In its Higher Manifestation, the Seventh Paradigm Worldview generates the Mode of Ethical Reasoning of The Mystics. Pursuant to this Mode of Ethical Reasoning, one seeks, through prayer, to know The Will of The Infinite and Eternal and then one, as an empty vessel, undertakes to act as a mere agent of The Infinite and Eternal Consciousness.
Because of these combined Cosmological, Teleological and Ontological beliefs on the part of adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview, adherents to The Seventh Paradigm Worldview adhere to an essentially Theist Philosophy.
The Lower Manifestation of the Seventh Paradigm Worldview generates the Philosophy of Theism such as that which was championed in Zoroastrian Arabia.
The Higher Manifestation of the Seventh Paradigm Worldview generates the Philosophy of Theism such as that which was championed in Sufism.
In its Lower Manifestation, The Seventh Paradigm Worldview generates the Mode of Ethical Reasoning of “Adherence to the Religious Rules of a Divine Order” such as is advocated by.
In its Higher Manifestation, The Seventh Paradigm Worldview generates the Mode of Ethical Reasoning of “The Discernment of The Will of Allah”, espoused by Sufism.
The Mode of Spiritual Expression of adherents to The Seventh Paradigm is Theism. This Worldview is manifested in ZOROASTRIANISM and in SUFISM and other religions which believe in the existence of an “I – Thou” relationship between an individuated Being in Mystical Unity with THE INFINITE AND ETERNAL SEA OF UNDIFFERENTIATED CONSCIOUSNESS (the “I”) and THE INFINITE AND ETERNAL SEA OF UNDIFFERENTIATED CONSCIOUSNESS itself (the “Thou.”)
In its Social Form, The Seventh Paradigm Worldview manifests itself, in its Lower Manifestation, in the form of a THEOCRACY.
In its Higher Manifestation, The Seventh Paradigm Worldview expresses itself in the Social Form of a THEISTIC UTOPIA.
 Though this “process” may need to progress through the “phases” of generating, first, “nutrinos”; “meuons”; “leptons”; “quarks” etc.
 At this point in their “evolution”, such complex “entities” will be capable of “manifesting” material objects of their own choice out of pure consciousness (just like the original INFINITE AND ETERNAL SEA OF UNDIFFERENTIATED CONSCIOUSNESS “created” THEM out of pure consciousness.) The arriving at this point in “evolution” will, of course, “confront” such “entities” with “THE ‘LUCIFERIAN’ TEMPTATION” (i.e. the “temptation” to confuse their-“selves” with THE INFINITE AND ETERNAL SEA OF UNDIFFERENTIATED CONSCIOUSNESS of which they are, in fact, a mere manifestation.) If, at that critical moment when these complex “entities” have arrived at the moment in their “evolution” at which they realize that they can “manifest” material objects of their own out of pure consciousness, a complex “entity” remembers to express “AWE and WONDER” at her or his state of existence and engages in the act of “AWE and WORSHIP” of THE INFINITE AND ETERNAL SEA OF UNDEIFFERENTIATED CONSCIOUSNESS and then “opens her or his -“self” to the flow of the ‘will’ of THE INFINITE AND ETERNAL” as the “referent” in accordance with which she or he chooses to exercise her or his new-found power to manifest material objects out of pure consciousness, then such “entities”, upon their death in the material universe, will manifest in a beautiful, harmonious, happy and abundant world (of their own manifestation) – known as PARADISE. They will, therefore, be “released from” the physical universe. IF, on the other hand, at that specific moment, others of these complex “entities” forget to recognize THE ININITE AND ETERNAL as the “referent” in accordance with which said “entities” should make their “choices as to WHAT“manifestations” to manifest out of pure consciousness, they will have succumbed to “The Luciferian Temptation.” At the point of their death in the physical universe, those complex “entities” who succumbed to “The Luciferian Temptation” will “manifest” back into a new “cycle” of the physical universe…a universe of their own collective making. Such Beings will be able to enter into the “Paradise” of the making of those who did “submit” their will to the will of THE INFINITE AND ETERNAL only when they too have done so during the next “cycle” of the universe.
 See the discussion of the “Teleological” Belief of Adherents of The Seventh Paradigm (“Theistic”) Worldview below at pp. .
 i.e. within the period of “Time” between the generation of the original initial “singularity” within the previously totally “un-differentiated” SEA of Infinite & Eternal Consciousness and the initial “incarnation” of the first “nodual” of previously un-differentiated Consciousness into the very first unit of physical “Matter” (i.e. into the very first “choate” quantum field)
 And to, thereby, come to learn true “compassion” for the plight of “Lucifer” and his “Fallen” fellow “Angelic Beings” (who “followed” Lucifer in “The Fall” into “Separateness” from Eternal Undifferentiated Consciousness) and to, thereafter chose to “forgive” them their “trespass” and to “welcome them back” through our action of un-conditioned Love toward them, finally knowing what it is that they experienced.
 Each of which will be discussed below under the topic of the “Epistemological” Belief of each such Worldview.
