Open Leadership: from Material to Mental Growth

The present-day world seeks economic growth, which is, broadly seen, ‘material’ ― either in the sense of being touchable or, at least, transposable, thereby tradeable. Mental growth is different and needs Open Leadership. Growth is a natural urge. Everything in nature continually grows intra- and intergenerationally. AURELIS itself is based on a natural growth philosophy. Read the full article…

Why Open Leadership is the Future

The future: soon enough, and from then, forever. Open Leadership is about getting real, which is increasingly necessary to thrive as an individual, an organization, and a species. Increasingly necessary It’s 2023. The past few years have seen global turmoil as never before in my lifetime. We see crisis on top of crisis: a viral Read the full article…

Why is there so Little Open Leadership?

The advantages are huge, yet too little attention goes to it in practice. Causes go from little theoretical thinking about it to a lack of Openness in the whole of society. Please read: Open Leadership is Bigger than You A leader is ‘only a person.’ One cannot expect him to be an Ubermensch. A leader Read the full article…

The Double Ethical Bottleneck of A.I.

This is a small excerpt from my book The Journey Towards Compassionate A.I. The whole book describes the why’s, what’s and how’s concerning this. Getting through the A.I. bi-bottleneck On the road towards genuine super-A.I. – encompassing all domains of intelligence and in each being much more effective than humans – I see not one Read the full article…

Open Leadership: Compassion

Open Leadership is fully Compassionate, not in the sense of ‘pity,’ but in the Eastern (and, profoundly, also Western) meaning of empathy-beyond-the-conceptual. Please read Compassion, Basically; Compassion = Empathy-Beyond Compassion is the top level and the goal of the AURELIS project. All other AURELIS levels are subordinate to this. Compassion is on top at the Read the full article…

The Belief in Progress

Some people believe that a profound belief in progress is necessary and even ethically mandatory. To them, one is – or at least looks like – a wrong person if one doesn’t follow. Belief in progress may be needed to surmount societal crises ― as arguably happened in the past. It may counter societal post-traumatic Read the full article…

From Boss to Burnout

It’s not about the amount of work but the amount of meaningless work. In contrast to a leader – let alone an Open Leader – a boss doesn’t take care of meaningfulness. That’s why they call him ‘the boss.’ Boss to blame? Not exactly. It’s not because one doesn’t take good care of something that Read the full article…

Costly Ego

Mere-ego is by far the most costly thing on Earth: annually, trillions of Euros, millions of human lives, and an unfathomable lot of human suffering through disease, war, and other mishaps. Moreover, it possibly leads to the end of the human species soon enough. See: The Story of Ego Unfortunately, this is no exaggeration. Also, Read the full article…

Five Ethical Values in AURELIS Sessions

These values can help you toward a deeper immersion in AURELIS sessions ― a crucial element of effectiveness. Ethics and effectiveness Generally, these seem two very different domains, even close to irreconcilable. This impression may stem from the fact that ethics is seen chiefly as the do’s and don’ts an individual needs to comply with Read the full article…

What is Non-Conscious?

With ‘non-conscious’ (not the Freudian subconscious) is generally meant: meaningfully mental processing ― not mechanical or straightforwardly reflexive. Brain and body For a long time, the mental has been confined (by me, for instance) to the brain, more specifically to mainly mental-neuronal patterns in the brain. More and more, however, we see that the brain Read the full article…

Proof in a Complex World

Anything human-health-related is prone to complexity ― especially in psycho-somatics. This makes experimental proof challenging, leading to the present situation in which there are still immense gaps in scientific knowledge. Time and again, these gaps are filled by disregarding mental influences while, implicitly or explicitly, referring to a future that will endorse this disregard ― Read the full article…

AURELIS in Everything?

There are AURELIS books, blog-essays, and mental exercises about many domains. Can AURELIS-specific expertise be genuinely relevant in all of these? AURELIS-specific expertise This is about a specific layer in the human mind. It’s a pretty big and important layer ― if not, pragmatically seen, the most important one. At the same time, it’s the Read the full article…

Disconnected Childhood

With so many disconnected adults, who will take care of all the disconnected children? To what kind of adulthood are they, in turn, growing up? Disconnection = inner dissociation and its immediate cause+consequence of not being able to properly connect with one’s surroundings, including meaningful others. Children are natural bombs of spontaneity The smiling and Read the full article…

Mental Illnesses are Meaningful Whirlpools

Especially relevant in the complexity of the human mind is the complexity of what meaningfulness can bring us and where it can go awry. Many diseases are the result of some whirlpool phenomenon. Truly meaningful Mental illness is not conceptually meaningful. Therefore, it is difficult to pinpoint or explain what it is about. Any conceptual Read the full article…

Is Your Wanting Yours?

It feels so mainly because one isn’t conscious of the many influences that eventually shape one’s wanting. But is it, and should it? Theory and practice In theory, if you count genetics to these influences, external forces shape and mold every wanting. This ends the concept of free will ― in theory. A way out Read the full article…

AURELIS Coaching is ‘Spiritual’

‘Spiritual’ as in ‘deeper self,’ this is: inspired, inspirational, spirit, even ‘Holy Spirit’ ― symbolically speaking. This contrasts with merely symptomatic relief in health or any other domain. This shows in aim and means. The aim of AURELIS coaching In contrast to Western medicine’s objective in mental issues, the direct aim of AURELIS is not Read the full article…

Inner Dissociation – Ego – Total Self

Inner dissociation is a wrongly perceived divide between – more or less – conceptual and subconceptual mental processing. Metaphorically, the dissociation lies between the ego and the total self. Reality is always more complex. Functionally In-depth, of course, the ego is part of the total self. Moreover, any conscious ego-element is engendered in deeper subconceptual Read the full article…
