Inspired by the mythologist Joseph Campbell´s monomyth of The Hero´s Journey, the author and pilgrim Phil Cousineau - in his book The Art of Pilgrimage – The Seeker´s Guide to Making Travel Sacred, divides the art of pilgrimage into seven archetypal steps, which each are divided into subdivisions. In this article I will let these steps and subdivions form the dreaming tracks and songlines in the artwork of the pilgrim, and investigate the universal inner map of the spiritual journey,...

The tendency to connect things and create plausible narratives out of partially fictious items is called Confabulation. A confabulation is a fantasy that has unconsciously replaced events in memory. A confabulation may be based partly on fact or be a complete construction of the imagination. In our time with the spreading of subjectivism and relativism - and therefore Magical thinking - we are seeing how Confabulation somehow gets a justification. There is in fact - as I claim in my concept of...

My inquiry (yes let´s use that word with emphasis) in this article is: why is it that Richard Dawkins is so praised in the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry - (Center for Inquiry (CFI) and Richard Dawkins Foundation are now formally merged) - where the main virtues (a defense of science, rationality and reasoning) only can be described as the precise opposite of, what I in this article will show, is Dawkins´?  I will show that it is because the underlying goal is ideology and neither science...

“Sûnyatâ” means emptiness. The concept involves especially three other concepts: negation, codependent origination and impermanence. The Sûnyatâ philosophy is a teaching, which has one quite determinate purpose: the neutralization of all the dogmas, theories and viewpoints, which ignorance has created.  And what does “Sutras” mean then? The oldest form of spiritual scriptures, as for example the old Indian Sutras, are intended for meditative reading. Sutras are effective hints to...

John Rosen, a professor in psychiatry, who had been analysed but never trained as a psychoanalyst, originally professed in 1947 that his new method, which he called “direct analysis,” led to schizophrenic patients “recovering” and having their “psychosis resolved.” Claiming that his patients had not been loved during childhood, Rosen reported spending sometimes as much as ten hours a day with one patient. What was eventually revealed about what went on in those sessions is almost...

People whose lives center on destroying other people's lives by disempowering them, who reduce their victims to dependent subjects to be lorded over, have been called spiritual vampires. Some of the therapists, ministers and gurus I've written about elsewhere in my articles and books could be called spiritual vampires, very aptly. In this article I try to describe the philosophical mechanisms under the thoughts, that create a spiritual vampire.

In this article I show that the concept of an internet troll, is caused by the rise of...
