CONNECTIVITY
Our brains can be seen as a mass of neurons along which energy flows. Energy is able to flow along neurons that are connected to each other. These neurons that are connected to each other form neural networks along which energy flows.

This energy fuels the perceptual processes by which we perceive ourselves and our universal environment. The way we perceive ourselves and our universal environment in turn determines the way we relate to ourselves and to our environment.

The depth and scope of the perceptions we are able to make depends on the extent of our neural networks and the amount of energy we are able to access.

A well functioning neural network, free of blockages – which are best described as resistances – and sufficient neural connectivity to accommodate available energy flows gives rise to Mastery and The Power to Guide. A high level of neural connectivity ensures a smooth and constant flow of energy giving rise to a calm and serene disposition with deep perceptual capacity that gives rise to Wisdom, Insight and Understanding. A level of neural connectivity that reaches beyond the boundary of our skin and connects with our universal environment leads to the accessing of Enlightenment and Illumination. The  consistent maintenance of such a level of connectivity leads to the practice of Respect Radiance and Compassion in our day to day lives.

Neural connectivity is both cultivated and programmed. The programming of our neural connectivity is done through primary formative processes that include the family, culture and school. Beyond this programmed neural connectivity it is possible for us to cultivate more connections and this is what gives some of us a higher level of neural connectivity than others.

Most of us do not bother to cultivate neural connectivity and in fact are not aware that we can do so. We are satisfied to function with the limited level of neural connectivity that is programmed into us by the primary formative processes that we are subjected to. These processes give us sufficient neural connectivity to see ourselves as autonomous entities within a world that is a collection of objects which have been created at a particular point of time by a creator or creators at whose mercy we are and to whose authority we must subject ourselves and which will come to an end in time as well.

This perception leads to an unending and obsessive generation of desire and a consequent compulsive search for the satisfaction of these desires which we seek to do through the consumption of each other and our environment. Some of this programmed connectivity centers around self preservation and the rest centers around reproduction with a bare minimum left over for perception of ourselves and our universal environment.

The programming process leaves many resistances and gaps as well, leading to frequent impediments to the flow of energy. These impediments are experienced as emotions, feelings, desires, cravings, impulses and urges and their physical expression often leads to violence.

When excess energy enters these limited neural networks there is a heightened attention to self preservation that leads to what we call paranoia. It may also lead to a heightened attention to reproduction with frenzied sexual imagery and activity. It may also lead to an increased attention towards the need to understand what is going on within and without us and this often leads to the articulation and maintenance of authoritarian and dogmatic constructs and to attempts to impose these on others as well.

A reduction in the flow of energy – experienced as an intense anxiety - leads to a loss of interest in life and a preoccupation with mental content that may lead to a loss of interest in survival and to self destruction.

An increase in neural connectivity along with the ability to access more and more energy leads to the perception of the world as an eternal and stochastic process and ourselves as perceptual mechanisms generated by this process in order to perceive its own potential and work towards its realization.
