Anthropic Trilogy
Samadhi Chronicles - Maya Gaia - Evolution Involution


MAYA-GAIA INTRODUCTION & SITEMAP       Page Update 08 24 07

Note:My Anthropic Trilogy web-book, evolving since 1997, is a chronicle of my passing all considered opinion
through the lens of my Nirvikalpa Samadhi with both an open-mind and healthy skepticism.

The Maya-Gaia website (begun in 1996 at GeoCities) is a chronicle of my efforts to integrate a spontaneous transcendent experience which I had back in 1970. At the time, I was almost completely naive regarding philosophy, religion, metaphysics or mystical, spiritual, or paranormal phenomena of any kind but the experience started my search for explanation that is still ongoing. My journey can best be shared by those with critical thinking temperaments that balance a healthy skepticism with an open mind as my itinerary through the various disciplines of religion, metaphysics, and science is an intellectual minefield of controversy, contradiction and fantasy. Starting my journey as an agnostic, I easily ignored the dogmas of the prophetic religions but discovered my major challenge was in applying this balanced approach to the reductionist, materialist, scientific viewpoint and that of open-ended, new-age spiritualism. Fortunately a synthesis is evolving from new physics, quantum consciousness and metaphysical concepts derived from the nondual traditions and the revelation from my own experience that suggests a deist, rational-based meta paradigm for the nature of reality. In 2001, I created a website- Cosmic Consciousness exploring this topic. The original Maya Gaia pages present what insights my transcendent experience inspired and in subsequent content added since 2006- tentative concepts about its reality as an ultimate Nirvikalpa Samadhi- based on both historical Vedantic, Buddhist and Tao sources and the accelerating expansion of the universe of information on the internet from which I've selected resources to serve as my personal library. I've presented links to many of the arguments and resources that challenged me to choose pro, con and maybe- for compiling a model of reality that seems most plausible to me at the moment, so the reader can make up their own mind regarding various issues. A caveat in regards to whatever brilliant insights appear in my pages is that they are derivative from more advanced intellect of others- and simply passed thru the lens-of-verity of my Nirvikalpa Samadhi.

Bringing a Transcendent Revelation Into a Gaia Perspective

Gaia Manifest of Transcendent Immanence My major mission has become to try to bring my revelations into the context of a Brahman/Gaian Paradigm as my Nirvikalpa Samadhi experience triggered a slow metamorphous that has evolved over the past thirty-five years, to finally making the Gaian ethos my imperative. I am totally dedicated to supporting Gaia- conceived not as an anthropomorphic goddess but as the totality of nature- life, matter and cosmic energy as immanent manifest of a transcendent cosmic consciousness.

Mystical Experience- A reprint of booklet published in 1972, documenting a spontaneous transcendent episode which I experienced two years earlier. It presents an anecdotal account of what I later learned is commonly associated with a Neo Tantra yoga scenario where sexual union culminated (for me but not my partner) in a supreme transcendence- a Nirvikalpa Samadhi. In my case however the event occurred in an environment devoid of any religious symbolism, belief or significance as we were an agnostic couple in a significant relationship and simply intent on "making love".
Samadhi Animated Flash An animated Flash portrayal of the moment in my samadhi journey when the energy stream transported me (still in a state of conscious duality) far beyond the gatekeeper and I seemed arrived in limbo.

Samadhi Return Animated Gif An animated gif of a slow-mo portrayal of the moment in returning from my nirvikalpa non-dual episode (now back in a state of conscious duality) when the energy stream injected me into a funnel opening to an astral cord connected to the top of the head of a disassociated body - some 30 or so feet below.

Dual Nondual Model Concurrent, Two-Tier, Dual-Nondual, 200 Percent; heuristic metaphysical Model of Reality that manifests a living relationship in duality with God within Advaita's ultimate nondual state of Brahman and Buddhism's Void. I had every expectation that the result would be something that conformed to a particular non dual school. Instead, I had to borrow principles and concepts from traditions that have fundamental disagreements to which I've added my own contradictions to all. My "model" is only a crude outline of the supreme numinous of conscious/reality and should be perceived as a holographic conceptual space wherein the states of consciousness and transcendent and immanent tiers interfere concurrently to create a blurred pattern of blended possibilities for an outline of a Brahman/Gaia Paradigm.

The Godhead Experience Experiencing the Godhead-Brahman-Atman-Cosmic Consciousness Singularity. In a skeptical yet open-minded overview of the Perennial Wisdom traditions of Advaita Vedanta, Kashmir Saivism, Zen Buddhism, Vajrayana Buddhism, and contemplative Taoism (the main five sacred traditions that have engendered the rise of nonduality in the West)- a single metaphysical concept survives all doubt. That it is possible for our living consciousness to experience the supreme Godhead-Atman-Brahman-Bodhi singularity in a brief episode of non-dual transcendent consciousness- after which the knower returns to mundane life.
Guru Bad Behavior There are many contemporary and some historic accounts of behavior by both anointed and self-proclaimed enlightened ones that seem inconsistent with that prescribed in classical Vedic and Buddhist Dharma. Our issue is with the basis of claims to their enlightenment, the substance of the ideologies they embrace and whether the character of their interpersonal relationships and lifestyle betray their own teachings.

As of April 30, 2013 I've turned 85 and technically classified as a very elderly senior. I'm hoping some younger writer who has a deist/philosophical turn of mind and finds my samadhi chronicles of value and ideologically compatible could continue to build the Maya-Gaia website in partnership with me until I go eternally non-dual and then have it as their own production. I have funded renewal of the annual fees for hosting my three angelfire websites that contain over 100 of my Maya-Gaia pages and the evolution-involution.org slideshow and other webpages, plus the domain name until 2020. Although my writings are exclusively from the perspective of my Samadhi revelations I feel they are a unique contribution to the body of evidence for the Brahman/Gaian Paradigm and should not be lost after I'm gone. Anyone interested can Email me at smalltownsATusaDOTcom and enter mayagaia as subject.
