Introduction

Offering a paradigm-shifting perspective on the interdependence of mind and body, Quadernity© is presented here as a beautifully illustrated, multi-media blog-book.

Most of us are identified with a particular body and a personal mind, both of which are multi-dimensional.  Physical embodiment is detectable across countless scales, from particles to cells to living entities and their ecologies, and further still, to the vast cosmic structures.  Consciousness is on a spectrum, as well.  Our instincts and biological functions are unconscious; our impressions and impulses are subconscious; and our intentions and intellectual reasoning are actively conscious.  Beyond the range of our personal consciousness is the super-consciousness, or collective consciousness, from which our individual minds are ‘mine-d‘.

Our corporeal body and our conscious minds are inextricably conjoined, as two sides of a coin.  The fundamental dynamic of conscious-corporeality, or corporeal-consciousness, if you prefer, is an irreducible unit from which all enduring entities/systems develop, and by which they communicate and evolve.

Physical corporeality OUTforms fractally.

Metaphysical consciousness INforms holographically.

Our conundrum has been to discover definitively the roles metaphysical consciousness plays in the organization, interactions and emergent properties of physical phenomena, and vice versa.

To fulfill our intellectual and soulful wish to understand how mind and body function coherently in the universe, Quadernity provides models that map out how, at every scale, an inter-subjective, causal feedback conjoins, intra-objectively, the physical matter embodied in space-time and the metaphysical patterns enduring in consciousness.

A Welcome from the Author

Thank you, Dear Reader, for visiting!

Geometric proportions, symbolic colors, powerful numbers and playfully coined words flood my daily morning meditations.  The vivid visions first appeared one early spring morning in 1999, only days after comparing and contrasting the creation stories of the Tao te Ching and the Bible’s Book of Genesis.  Each book, in starkly different terms, described how something comes from nothing.  I was captivated and could not shake the feeling that the two tales were disguising a single truth that would be revealed if only the stories were properly decoded.  Apparently, my quest for the sacred secret initiated my morning visions.  Imagine that!

Having neither a religious background nor an academic education, I was unprepared for the mysterious murals.  Turning to the works of philosophers and physicists, mystics and mathematicians who had pursued the same unknown, I was surprised that both ancient wisdom teachings and cutting-edge scientific discoveries affirmed the meanings I had somehow intuited.

Intrigued and encouraged, I gave myself completely to the curiously compelling process of receiving and documenting the lessons of what would, years later, be named Quadernity©.  The path onto which my life had veered so unexpectedly has blessed me abundantly with opportunities for self-discipline, duty and delight.  You are encouraged to apply what you discover here to enhance and empower your own life.

Answers always await our carefully formed and firmly held questions.  The following Q&A is offered in advance of your journey.  With this brief preparation, you are invited to explore with me the world of ‘Quadernity’.  As an intuitive logician, I will share my process of discovering Quadernity and explain how to use it as an exquisite tool of logic.  The deeper we dive into both the art and science of Quadernity, the greater the rewards!

Peace and Warmest Regards, Devi

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the name Quadernity© mean?

Our universe is the offspring of two Parents.  The Father gives Structure to the Mother’s Substance.  The Mother makes the Father’s Patterns Matter.

Though they share the same Latin roots; our English words hide in plain sight the everyday relationship of our primal Parents.

working-keynote-58-001Matter makes Patterns visible, and Patterns make Matter meaningful.

working-ps-12-001Without beginning or end, the interceptions and interactions of our coupled agents INform and OUTform our universe.  Therefore, the term ‘eternity’ rounds out our new-fangled word.

Version 2Paraphrased from the Great Announcement, an ancient Gnostic text, the following tells of the co-emergence of the original originators, who are archetypally Female and Male:

Of the universal Æons there are two growths, without beginning or end, springing from one Root …

the Great Power, the Universal Mind [Nous], a male ordering all things …

and the Great Thought [Ennoia], a female producing all things.

The Male orders, or patterns, all things meaningful.  The Female produces, or materializes, all things measurable.

What is the difference between ‘Quadernity’ and a Quadernity Model?

As a noun, ‘Quadernity’ encapsulates into a singular element the essential dynamics inherent in everything, everywhere.  As a moniker, ‘Quadernity’ specifies the principle that a fabric of inter-woven physical and metaphysical relationships constitutes our real (as consciously interpreted) and actual (as substantively structured) worlds.

Quadernity models are like maps.  They provide a visual orientation of feedback between physical OUTformation and metaphysical INformation.  These motivationally opposed, yet splendidly balanced, inverse processes involve untold nuanced and largely unnoticed alliances, which conjoin the familiar domain of the corporeal to the mystical domain of consciousness.

As we proceed through the chapter essays, we will want to emphasize, clarify, or highlight specific aspects of Quadernity.  For different perspectives of Quadernity, we will alter how it is visually represented; however, despite the unique vantage points the various versions offer, there is only one Quadernity.  Its multiple models reveal no functional discrepancies, whatsoever.

These and other questions about Quadernity will be answered throughout this blog-book:

  • How did it come about?
  • What are its features?
  • What practical use can we make of it?
  • How does it align with scientific, philosophical and religious scriptures?
  • Can it be represented mathematically?

Why bother to learn about Quadernity?

From quick little quanta to great galactic super-clusters, everything is in relationship.  We exist only in relation to a greater whole.  Nothing exists in isolation.

As the preeminent metaphysical poet, John Donne tells us:

No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.

Today, we are becoming increasingly aware of how our local connections function as nodes in a global nexus.  Each of us is enmeshed in familial, social, political, economical, and ecological relationships.  Ironically, our most obvious relationship is the one most overlooked — this being the relationship we, as living beings, have with our environment.

Relationships are everywhere; indeed, Quadernity reveals that relationships ARE every thing!

On the surface, relationships appear unique; however, with deeper investigation we discover that each distinguished relationship has the same dynamic at its core: the universal complementary processes of the entwined Female and Male partners.  This blog-book describes the primordial dynamism; in it, all relationships are rooted, and from it, all relationships stem.

When we place relationship itself, rather than specific relata, in the cross-hairs of our investigations, an integral truth appears: life loops through a myriad of dimensions and time frames, without ever reaching a pinnacle.  There is no epitomizing humanity; even as we evolve and participate in ever greater complexities, we are composed of smaller and simpler parts.  Just as humans affect and abide by the earth’s ecosystems, microbes affect and abide by the ecologies hidden within and upon our human bodies.  Without a universal dynamic to seamlessly span the scales, there could be neither organisms nor organizations of any kind.

How can Quadernity reveal what other methods of investigation have missed?

In physics, the typical approach of reductionism is to seek the smallest possible particle common to all measurable matter.  Even if a success were to be declared, it would be overridden by the continued failure to address how it is that elementary particles interrelate to produce emergent phenomena; for instance, water molecules themselves are not wet, and yet, put lots of water molecules together and the property of wetness emerges.

In reverse, if we were to take apart all the wires, chips and other pieces from our smart-phone, those separated parts could not give us the time, a weather forecast, or directions from where we are to where we want to go.  When it comes to the complexity of living systems and the capriciousness of self-conscious observers, we simply cannot expect the molecules in our cells, or synaptic firings between nerves, to tell us how or why they do what they do when they are in relationship.  And never mind enigmas like synchronicity, the power of prayer, spontaneous healings, intuition, the calculations of savants and any ability considered psychic; these are off-the-table when it comes to science!

Currently, it is scientific protocol to dismiss that which is immeasurable, incalculable or untestable.  Through the lens of Quadernity, we recognize the hindrance of such a habit.  Our world is a hierarchy of interlocking feedback systems with infinite degrees of sensitivity and fortification.  Until we understand both the overt (physically discrete) and the covert (metaphysically discreet) worlds, and how they inter-relate, pivotal issues of our day will remain unresolved.

The dynamism modeled by Quadernity offers an explanation for how discrete parts on one scale can co-function as an integral whole on a scale above; this proceeds layer after layer, scaling from micro to human to macro.  When we understand the one dynamic at play in every intersection, the staggering reach of our interconnectedness is less mystifying, and less overwhelming.

What is the moral imperative of Quadernity?

Knowledge of Quadernity empowers us to effect radical healing in our bodies and in relationships of every scale, from quantum to personal to cosmic.  In any ailing entity/system, its first fault will always be a relationship issue — a breakdown in the critical feedback between one or more of its hierarchically arranged pairs of coterminous levels.  When the essential binary oscillations become discordant at any level, the imbalance will echo throughout the entity/system.  When pronounced or persistent, symptoms of the imbalance warn of an impending systemic breakdown.

Through the lens of Quadernity we come to understand the dynamical root of all relationships.  Thus, we are able to detect and correct imbalances at the first fault — an exponentially more effective strategy than attempting to suppress wide-spread surfaced symptoms.

As we begin to “Q up (queue up) our personal questions and collective conundrums in the light of Quadernity, our fresh perspectives will likely spark revolutionary new hypotheses and instigate new avenues of research.  Quadernity offers a vocabulary that can bridge common interests between disparate fields of research: psychology, sociology, information theory, complexity, politics, economics, ecology, medicine and life sciences, to name a few.

When we ponder the miracle of our bodies, comprising 100 trillion cells that behave variously and integrally as functionaries of our entire being…

When we wonder how our individual thoughts and memories might influence the collective consciousness, or vice versa…

When we grapple with the quandary of how our subjective mind integrates with our objective body…

When we intuit an interconnected intelligence that both defines and unifies every entity…

And when, amidst an onslaught of minutia, we feel compelled to fulfill a purpose far beyond our own self-interests…

…we are not alone.

We are here to find each other, heal our hurtful relationships and expedite the evolution of our collective consciousness.  Secrets that have been hiding in plain sight bring us closer to unlocking our human potential.  Quadernity opens a portal to an advanced paradigm.
