‘..the epistimological nature of understanding.’
- Mises, Human Action, page 114
‘Neither must understanding be confused with the act of aesthetic enjoyment of a phenomenon. Empathy (Einfühlung) and understanding are two radically different attitudes..’
- Mises, Human Action, page 50
‘..feelings are the source of man’s most delightful and most sublime experiences.’
‘Within the frame of social cooperation there can emerge between members of society feelings of sympathy and friendship and a sense of belonging together. These feelings are the source of man’s most delightful and most sublime experiences. They are the most precious adornment of life; they lift the animal species man to the heights of a really human existence. However, they are not, as some have asserted, the agents that have brought about social relationships. They are fruits of social cooperation, they thrive only within its frame; they did not precede the establishment of social relations and are not the seed from which they spring.’
- Mises, Human Action, page 144
‘..It may be that the coming generations of physicists will have to face problems in some way similar to those with which praxeology must deal. Perhaps they will be forced to drop the idea that there is something unaffected by cosmic changes which the observer can use as a standard of measurement .. ultimately with the gross sense organs of man, the observer and experimenter..’
‘The last decades have witnessed a revolution in the traditional epistemological setting of physics, chemistry, and mathematics. We are on the eve of innovations whose scope cannot be foreseen. It may be that the coming generations of physicists will have to face problems in some way similar to those with which praxeology must deal. Perhaps they will be forced to drop the idea that there is something unaffected by cosmic changes which the observer can use as a standard of measurement. But however that may come, the logical structure of the measurement of earthly entities in the macroscopic or molar field of physics will not alter. Measurement in the orbit of microscopic physics too is made with meter scales, micrometers, spectrographs–ultimately with the gross sense organs of man, the observer and experimenter, who himself is molar. It cannot free itself from Euclidian geometry and from the notion of an unchangeable standard.’

‘..purposive human action radically differs from motion, the subject matter of mechanics..’

In a way we soared, awareness expanded, we were able to do our Counsel of our Souls.
I was in a hurry because our human bodies had their limits and there was a time limit of four hours. After four hours our body would become to tired to stay tuned, unable to tune to the specific electrical frequency of the Room of Thoughts.
The interconnectedness of our unique consciousness was very deep, spanning our current lives, the past lives, together with certain insights of our souls.
There was not only an interchange of information with our self, but also between each other.
What would take months to absorb, was now absorbed and understood within a minute, this also heightened our bodily senses in an Affective Ambiance where we were able to tune precisely to the Room of Thoughts and each other.
Soon it was clear of the ‘why’ of what had happened, why we were born and what we could achieve, if we choose so.
‘This is the direction.’
In our midst a scenery unfolded.
‘It will take a millennium to make this possible.’
The scenery was way too complex for our human senses to comprehend in one hour, but not for our souls, the vista of the future was marvelous.
‘Many of you will return in a next life.’
Albeit we weren’t allowed to see who we would become in the future, we were allowed to align it, to create the environment where dreams will come true, to change the game rules on Earth.
‘To learn the Art of Being Human.’
We took one hour to comprehend the beautiful vista of the future.
The second hour was of a personal soul solitude nature where we weren’t connected to one another, but only to our soul contemplation.
Another hour was used to connect once more with each other and to mold the tapestry to make the good future possible.
The last hour was to gently absorb it all and relax towards becoming awake once more.
It was that we were connected with our body that we still had a sense of time, of human time preference. That we could feel the Earth and her inhabitans and the Sun, sensing her cycle.
‘..The solar cycle is to be expected since plasma circuits are notorious for their oscillatory tendency.’
- Wal Thornhill, The Solar Cycle
After four hours, we opened our eyes.
