    Cary Nova The TSK vision is a portal to the infinite and eternal dimensions of experience. TSK is an attempt to build a cultural platform that would allow modern humans to overcome the essential human tragedy, which is an inability to experience eternity.

    Rick Hi Davidu, Nice to hear from you, thanks for your post. Yes, there are many writers/speakers/artists that resonate with TSK. I haven't read D. Loy, but enjoy and work with Focusing and Gendlin's work. I discovered Gendlin through David Michael Levin's books. (Speaking of Zen, you might find Toni Packer interesting if you haven't run across her work) Bringing up the sensing the edge and the intricacies there is a good reminder to carry experiences forward, perhaps into an unknown play or "into what comes" (T. Ulrich) "Border zone" is also a helpful term. The unique approach of Bohm might be his sense that group coherence was a necessary next step. He felt that while individuals might gain understanding and insight, if a group was to come together in such a way it might be more powerful. The difficulty we might have in a group could also point to how we might be fooling ourselves about our realization, encountering others brings that incoherence to the fore so it can be worked with. I've often experience this kind of coherence in a group with a strong leader or teacher, but then the teacher leaves and that energy dissipates and the unresolved "knots" emerge. A group provides the opportunity for those blocks to be "seen" together as not belonging to "you" or "me" or anyone in particular, but to the whole of "thought". The difficulty in bringing about this situation may be a sign of its necessity. Many regards, Rick

      Davidu Hi Rick… I think I understand your point about the benefits of the group dynamic when people agree to relinquish the tightness of self or myopic focus to a more open and allowing group, within a community of particular concern. I often find this in class practicing TSK exercises, and inquiring discussions, in-community where mutually supporting space is created. You may have seen where I posted my answers to a questionnaire about how I came to the Time, Space, knowledge vision. If not here’s a link: http://timespaceknowledge.socialgo.com/forum/topic/480

    Davidu Hi Rick, It’s been decades since I read David Bohm. I’ve forgotten a lot! But I do remember his books were a path for me on my way to discovering TSK. I should dig out my books and read them again. There are lots of authors, I think, that resonate with TSK, David Loy, “The World Is Made of Stories”, and Eugene T. Gendlin’s Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy: A Manual of the Experiential”, for instance… “Every experience and event contains implicit further movement. To find it one must sense its unclear edge. Every experience can be carried forward. Given a little help one can sense an “edge” in the experience more intricate than one’s words or concepts can convey. One must attend to such sensed edges because…change come at those edges… one may recall a dream, a thought may come, an image may “pop in,” strong emotions may suddenly well up… It is commonly assumed that these come from “unconscious levels” so deep that one cannot sense their source. But it is also possible (at various depths) to sense the source directly. There can be a direct awareness of the “border zone” between the conscious and the unconscious.”

      Davidu Hi Rick! You're right. Not much discussion going on, but that's not too unusual. I can tell by the viewer count there's still a lot of exploring going on of the Forum topics and the TSK Blogs.
