Besides spreading the reality of three attentions/intentions (first attention/equality/memory/faith, second attention/fantasy/freedom/hope, and third attention/charity/fraternity/rebirth) in the Universe and the human mind, our MISSION follows the going and returning of the Mesoamerican demigod QuetzalCoatl (BirdSerpent, SkyLand, or MadnessAutism) to understand and help autistics and schizophrenics, stop the sixth extinction of nonhuman species, and save our grandchildren and civilization from the premature death caused by a global-warming avalanche.
Instead of feeding a fake problem, as is the Russian-Ukrainian war for example, the USA and the EU should enroll both Russia and Ukraine (the winners of WW2 against Hitler's nazism, together with the USA) into reversing or founding anew the ten-times economic and population growth in the world that occurred since 1825, the year of the Great Divergence in the history of humanity, and the beginning of the extinction of nonhuman species and climatic crisis that will kill us all.
However, no think-tank can save our grandchildren and refund our Progress without marrying modern technology to the social roots that vanishing Neanderthal Sages taught our Homo sapiens ancestors 50 thousand years ago after 300,000 years of meditations:
Our three attentions/intentions are hidden in the "tryzub" symbol wanted by Saint Volodymyr/Vladimir in the money used by the Rus' of Kiev, the cradle of Slavs, 1000 years ago. Today's Russians hate that symbol, whereas the Ukrainians have adopted it as a coat-of-arms in their Constitution. Fear and hatred in all nations suffocate the 2nd attention and hide the triple and real meaning of the tryzub.
If they stay separated and demented, Russians, Ukrainians, Europeans, and Americans will lose their 1st, their 2nd, and the opportunity to enter their 3rd attention. And yet they could save all of us, and open the doors of the Third Rome, if they thought and fought together, as they did in WW2 against the Nazi-fascists, who admired the tryzub (without understanding it).
No first, no second attention; and no second, no third attention. Consequently, only a repented liar can offer us a better new reality. Will a novel Cincinnatus (Boris Johnson, Vladimir Putin, or Volodymyr Zelensky?) unite Ukraine, the USA, the EU, and Russia to prevent a climatic avalanche that would kill 2 billion children?
The existence of a 4.2 (height) x 6.2 (length) meters mural by Leonardo da Vinci, the Fight for the Standard (centered at 7.035 meters under the center of Vasari's Battle of Marciano in the Hall of the 500 at Florence's Palazzo Vecchio) would prove the interpretation of the tryzub given by Antonio Cassella's "logos heuristics" and the need to return to the lower population and energy consumption we had until two centuries ago. Besides finding Leonardo's "Fight for the Standard," the logos heuristics advises us to exploit a kind of energy generation and of human creativity that will not upset nature and the Earth. Let us talk to each other, while deciding together how to solve the problem of the oncoming avalanche of global warming, which will kill the remaining nonhuman speci!es on Earth and the actual civilization as well.
Language still expresses today our classical capacity to unite the present self with our past and future self, our metaphorical and pragmatical capacity to lie by embracing autistic order and schizophrenic chaos simultaneously, and our capacity for sharing fraternally our experience with others, before acting in an ironical and exceedingly mysterious world.
For example, if we need to express orally and for the first time the past tense of the verb "to need," cerebellar infinite speed (2) will help us explore in no time the cerebral memory (1) of irregularly tensed similar verbs (e.g., feed-fed).
After failing to remember an irregular and unreal past tense, the classical finiteness of the rule that expresses the past of a verb by adding the suffix "-ed" to the stem- of a word will lean on infinity in the 2nd attention to direct us into the nothingness by which we will try (3) the correct word "needed" before the incorrect word "ned." Visible words and rules in the finite world of the first attention should not hide the invisible and infinite power of the 2nd attention in leading us unconsciously into the nothingness of the solutions blessed by the Third Attention.
Infinity (2nd attention) governs finiteness (1st) as nothingness governs infinity in recreating (3rd) the visible world.
According to Cassella's "logos heuristics," the nothingness of dark matter derives from the union of finite autistic gravity with infinite artistic dark energy. Hence, the measurable finiteness of Einsteins's gravitation and speed of light (1) relies on the infinite speed of dark energy (2) to balance (3) matter (+1) with anti-matter (-1) in the universe and the human brainstem.
The union of our visible first attention (1) with the invisible coherence of the Morning Star in our second attention (2) offers a universal Vision of quantum decoherence, the third attention (3), or the return of the demigod Quetzalcoatl to Earth with the Evening Star. Will Volodymyr Zelensky and Vladimir Putin listen to the words of a returning Quetzalcoatl as they would listen to the words of a reborn Saint Volodymyr/Vladimir?
The Third Attention enlivens any Sacred Text, philosophy, language, masterpiece, and natural system. Autistics (+1) lack the second attention; and unmedicated schizophrenics (-1), who cannot engage decoherence in adulthood, end up losing the first (1), the second (2), and the third (3) attention (the case of the devilish Lord Voldemort at the end of Harry Potter's adventures).
After basing his hypotheses on the performance of autistics in key neuropsychological tests, Antonio Cassella (EdD) includes in his logos heuristics the phenomenon of a personal illumination, or our Third Point--as does Albus Dumbledore at Harry Potter's Hogwarts School.
Lord Voldemort and Harry Potter are both in the arms of their 2nd. attention. But there is a key difference between them as between the devil and Holy Water: As with Albus Dumbledore, only the good-willing Harry Potter will seize the Philosopher's Stone. The unrepented Lord Voldemort will never ever enter the Third Attention.
Hopefully, the Ukrainian Volodymyr and the Russian Vladimir will join their Third Point, or the Sainthood of the first king of the Slavs, Volodymyr-Vladimir. By repenting, they would join Dumbledore and the final Harry Potter, instead of joining the devilish Lord Voldemort and their individual madness after that. As Mary Magdalene found in France at Rennes-le-Château., only a scheming, trecherous, and lying devil can sustains the bowl of Holy Water. Only a repented liar empowered with the 2nd. attention may enter the Third Attention and offer a better reality to his travel companions.
All humans with a devil inside them can arrive while living at their Third Point. As with the "Tathagata" (gone and returned) Buddha, Gandhi, Laozi, Dumbledore, Saint Anthony of Padua, and Saint Francis of Assisi, however, the Third Point that illuminates most normal humans in early childhood, will illuminate perhaps one adult in 100.000. Unless our Guardian Angel dominates the egoism of the dragon-devil hidden in the self, we will not reach our Third Point in a renovated autistic side, but sheer madness in our schizophrenic side.
I hope that the general Vision of the Third Attention offered by Dr. Antonio Cassella in this website will help Volodymyr and Vladimir develop their repentance and the fraternal charity attached to their personal Will and Third Point. The dying Buddha suggested that every person has to save himself or herself. Onet way to do that is by helping others save themselves, as did the Archangel Gabriel by illuminating Jacob in his Bethel's dreaming, the Archangel Michael by fighting with and blessing Israel at Penuel, and the Archangel Raphael in welcoming Jacob through the smile of his brother Esau, who changed from mad to forgiving.
In Bethel, Jacob dreamt of a ramp, the quantum computing that enlivens the second and the third attention. The ramp went from the Earth (autism and the snake-coatl) to the heaven (Venus, schizophrenia, and the bird-quetzal). Within quantum coherence, the angels of God ( or thoughts in the human mind) ascended the ramp (in examining a problem) and within quantum decoherence, they descended the ramp (in newly solving a problem).
Jacob understood the Vision he dreamed of at Bethel. Instead of continuing to deceive others, as he had done with his brother Esaú and his own father Isaac, he worked for his uncle and father-in-law Laban to deserve his wives Leah and Rachel and to become very rich. Yet after working twenty years for Laban, the face of God (the Archangel Michael?) wanted to test the Will of the Third Point of Jacob at Penuel.
After realizing that Jacob had indeed controlled both his innate egoism and his dragon-devil, Michael added the name "I-sra-el" ("Whoever-fights with and wins with-God") to the name "Jacob" (the "supplanter" or "deceiver") before letting him continue his return to the familiar grounds in which he had grown up. Jacob and his brother Esaù reconciled by smiling to each other, instead of killing each other. Both of them understood nature's nature.
Similarly, Quetzalcoatl will smile after enering the decoherence that will help him jump from the Morning Star to the Evening Star. Will Ukrainians smile to Russians, and vice versa, as they did in WW2?
Progress, instead of the anthropogenic extinction of most nonhuman species and Homo sapiens, hides behind the smile by which our brainstem crossed (3) in infancy . . .
As with the dreaming Jacob in Bethel, knowledge of the reality of the Third Attention might defeat the early death that otherwise would meet our grandchildren. Moreover, similar to the deadlock between Israel and the Archangel Michael in Penuel, we need to pass the test in which we show God that we have re-learned how to read nature, our Sacred Texts, and our minds.
If we use altruistically the power of coherence offered to us by the Archangel Gabriel (Bethel), the Archangel Michael (Penuel) will bless us and open to us the door to the power of decoherence that might take us to the Progress blessed by the Archangel Raphael. We could replace Gabriel, Michael, and Raphael with the Virgin Mary, the goddess Mother, or May Magdalene.
The autistics' inability to handle quantum coherence (within the infinite speed behind fantasy, hope, doubt, problems, paradox, and the normal use of pronouns) shows the need and the fragility of the finite perfection that feeds the laws of autistic classical computing in the faith-certainty provided by the first attention
And schizophrenics' difficulty to return with quantum decoherence (in solving a problem or in sharing with others relevant reinterpretations of perceivable reality) shows the dangers hidden in the less-than-perfect laws of quantum computing, which characterize the hope and doubt wanted by the second attention :
The second attention is as "real" in nature and our minds as is the intersection of two straight lines on a geometrical plane. In any cross, the crossing point lies in two different lines, in the same way that two different lines share the same space at their crossing. Besides, a real cross stands for kindness, forgiveness, and fraternal love.
A verse of the Scottish song "Auld lang syne," for example, " . . . and we'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet," picked up by the Scot bard Robert Burns in the 17th. century, suggests that we should not forget Values as forgiveness, kindness, and love. Social Values and Creativity rest in the fraternal crossing of autistic finiteness (1) with artistic infinity (2) when Jacob became Israel and Quetzalcoatl returns (3) from Venus to Earth through the Evening Star.
In line with the intuitive and emotional feelings of Robert Burns, the American actor and singer Gene Autry popularized in 1946 the Canadian song "Red River Valley" . . .
"Come and sit by my side if you Love me,
Do not hasten to bid me adieu,
But remember the Red River Valley
And the one that has loved you so true."
If we understand the drama of autistics and schizophrenics, our grandchildren will keep their smile through life; we will stop the ongoing sixth extinction of non-human species, and we will avoid the imminent first extinction of Homo sapiens.
Besides the finiteness of a unitary faith, the Progress of our grandchildren needs the infinity of hope. Hope will allow us to escape the devilish temptations hidden in the power of quantum computing. If our hopes and repentance are sincere, the Archangel Michael will open in -1 the closed door of the nothingness that follows the quantum infinity unleashed by coherence in our 2nd. attention.
After opening the door of quantum nothingness, we may reach the collective Vision of the Third Attention and (in time) the individual Will of the Third Point. Awareness of the reality of the Third Attention in most people and individual altruism in some of us will stop the sixth anthropogenic extinction of non-human species and the first extinction of Homo sapiens.
The infinite speed that precedes the nothingness of empathic Coincidence ("Put yourself in my shoes!" ["without ever leaving your shoes"]), the general Vision of the Third Attention, and the charitable will that characterizes our particular Third Point will allow us to return into a fraternal spacetime renewed for all remaining species. Under the influence of a personal Third Point, some individuals will help other humans see the Third Attention and will their own Third Point. That happened for the first time 350,000 years ago, when some Neanderthal troglodytes fed simultaneously equality, freedom, and fraternity (égalité, liberté, fraternité in revolutionary France) in their neighbors.
Today, such a fraternity remains inaccessible to lying tyrants, their cynical partners, and their faithful acolytes. The pride, narcissism, and arrogance (hubris) of authoritarian leaders, the corruption of their accomplices, and the blind faith of their loyal, hatred-filled, and fearful slaves dispel all hope (2) and compassion (3) (e.g., the Holocaust-Shoah).
Unlike envious tyrants, their partners, and their blind followers, as a liberator of his brothers and of humanity, by God's request Moses sewed the crystals Thummim and Urim in the sacred mantle-ephod that his brother Aaron (the first High Priest of the Hebrews) kept in the Ark of the Covenant.
The stone Thummim reflects the two down-to-earth principles of classical computing (Finiteness and Impenetrability) reviewed in the previous section. And the stone Urim reflects the two magical principles of quantum computing (Entanglement and Superposition).
Quantum Superposition, or Coincidence, may go with coherence (escape door closed) or with the decoherence (escape door open) of the Third Attention. As with Jacob after his dream at Bethel, knowledge of the reality of the Third Attention, or Seeing, may place us on the benevolent way that leads to the Will of our Third Point.
Hence, the union of the crystals Thummim and Urim on Aaron's heart and in the Ark of the Covenant makes a metaphor for the finiteness-infinity-nothingness that lies hidden in the tryzub wanted by the coins of Saint Volodymyr/Vladimir, in the brain of every human being, and in the divine creativity that drove the increase of new nonhuman species in the forests and seas that covered Earth after the first five natural extinctions.
The power of the Third Point in a few humans will stop more than the anthropogenic sixth extinction of nonhuman species on Earth. Illuminated minds might also stop the first extinction of humans (see "the cosmos" page in this website).
As with Moses, instead of becoming slaves, slave-masters, or tyrants, our grandchildren will remember their frame of knowledge (1), develop the humorous courage to face problems (2), and display new solutions through a magical smile (3).
The smile that unites in the brainstem our cerebral cortex and cerebellar microcomplexes makes the Progress linked to the general Vision of the Third Attention and the Will of the Third Point in an illuminated human mind.
According to the prophet Zechariah, if we do not help God by recognizing the value of kindness and brotherhood, we will lose first the staff No'am (the Grace of the second attention); and after that we will lose the staff Hovalim (Union, or the brotherhood of the first attention).
If we lose our second attention (as the global increase of autism predicts) and then our first attention (as the global increase of mental illnesses predicts), or the first two miracles of civilization, we will also lose the miracle of their cosmic union.
According to Zechariah, two thirds of us will die in the headless chaos in which a neighbor will attempt to kill another neighbor. However, this prophecy will not become real if we understand its meaning in any cross hidden behind any spiral: the importance of the miraculous staff Hovalim, of the miraculous staff No'am, and of their miraculous altruistic use.
The three miracles of Progress arise when the first attention changes into quantum infinity (or coherence in the second attention), and finally, into the nothingness that re-creates reality within the Third Attention and the return of Quetzalcoatl. Quetzalcoatl will return when we understand that we may grow with others through three miracles:
In its turn, decoherence and the return of Quetzalcoatl help us re-create visible reality out of quantum nothingness, smile after a wordplay, laugh after our falls, cry when others fall, and laugh and cry simultaneously in helping others get the Third Attention and walk their way to their own Third Point.
If we return with Quetzalcoatl, after grasping the three miracles of Progress and helping others reach their Third Point, our grandchildren would grow in a new Teotihuacan, or the Third Rome. Then and there, they would be free from the despair caused by sterile ideology, the malice unleashed by diabolical, corrupt, or stupid leaders, the menace of weapons of mass destruction, and the destruction brought by replacing the natural global cooling of Earth with anthropogenic global warming .
As the anthropologist Carlos Castaneda implied before dying, knowledge of the cognitive frame pointed out by the Yaqui shaman don Juan frees any heroic human mind that decides to re-interpret visible reality for the good of all.
We can overcome global warming, tyranny, the menace of weapons of mass destruction, deadly viruses, and madness. The way to do it is by allying our perfect 1st. attention with the less-than-perfect coherence of our 2nd. attention, into the decoherence of the third attention.
Here are some examples:
In the hypothetical "logos heuristics" (or "Λ"), found by Dr. Antonio Cassella after exploring the autistic brain and crossing classical science with quantum physics, philosophy, and mysticism, the bird-serpent "Quetzal-coatl" will repent. Similarly. Volodymyr Zelensky and Vladimir Putin might repent and ally in tackling the real problem of how to avoid a global warming avalanche that would destroy civilization and the remaining nonhuman species on Earth.
Accompanied by the grace of Guadalupe, Coatlaxopeuh (Shekhinah-Gabriel-Michael-Raphael), Quetzalcoatl will return to lead some of us to our particular Third Point. Quetzalcoatl will return with an explanation of the nature of Progress in the universe and in the anti-universe (described here in the page "cosmos").
In the 9th century BCE (Before the Common Era), the Olmecs (and later the Maya, the Teotihuacans, the Toltecs, and the Aztecs) did not know that planets turn around the Sun. However, they noticed that the light of the Morning Star becomes weaker for 263 days before vanishing for 50 days (superior conjunction in the figure above). In the guise of the Evening Star, the light of Venus turns stronger for another 263 days, and disappears for 8 days (inferior conjunction), before the repeat of Venus's synodic cycle.
Ancient Mesoamericans associated the weakening light of the Morning Star with the going journey of a demigod that the Aztecs called later Quetzal-coatl (herein called Coatl-quetzal [serpent-bird] in his/her going journey); and the increasing luminosity of the Evening Star, with the return from Venus to Earth of that demigod (or any human) as Quetzal-Coatl (Feathered serpent), the bearer of the Third Attention.
The Hindu Vedas (more ancient by five centuries than the Olmec legends about Quetzalcoatl) reflected the Third Attention with the syllable OM (pronounced "AUM"). The sequence of sounds "aaaaa," "uuuu," and "mmm" (open, half-open, and closed) evokes the dharma by which the visible reality of the first attention is transformed into the suspended reality of the second attention, and, finally, into a new mysterious truth brought by the Third Attention.
Knowledge of the limitations of autism and the first attention may help many people transform the doubts of their second attention into the Vision of the universal truths of the Third Attention of all; and later, into the personal illumination of one's own third point. The Third Point might knock at our door if we catch (Vision) the reality of the alliance (3) between:
Quantum computing echoes the fruit of the biblical Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil, being-and-nonbeing, "maybe," the 2nd. attention, infinite hyperspace, doubt, dilemma, paradox, hope, humor, the unknown, deceit, the immersion in a problem, the contrasting hypotheses about potential solutions; and the pragmatics behind the use of quantum coherence in figures of speech, the subjunctive, the conditional and the unconscious use of pronouns, which autistics that incur in pronoun reversal cannot fathom.
For different reasons, both autistics and schizophrenics cannot seize the union of classical computing (1) with quantum computing (2) into the third attention (3) or the biblical Tree of Life.
Autistics, who imagine what they see (sanity), oppose schizophrenics, who see what they imagine (insanity). And both miss the mental fluidity that invites dancers who can imagine what they see and see what they imagine into flying with beauty, elegance, grace, and charm.
We need to recover at least a Vision of the Third Attention (e.g., the logos heuristics) as did Jacob at Bethel. When at the turn of the 18th century, French revolutionaries exalted the values of equality, liberty, and fraternity, they unconsciously highlighted the values of faith, hope, and charity in the Third Attention of the priests they forced to marry or to abandon France. Both the French revolutionaries and their victims missed the Social Values buried about 11 millennia ago at Göbekli Tepe (Turkey).
About 50,000 years ago, (see part A of Figure G, at the extreme left) Homo sapiens learned from Homo neanderthalensis that the tension created by pulling the opposite extremes of a bow (2) simultaneously could be used to please others (by singing, or by playing a flute and a lyre, [e.g., the Egyptian khitara]), instead of killing them by shooting an arrow.
However, the use of the tension of quantum computing to create weapons of mass destruction denotes the cognitive blindness of tyrants who have not repented yet of their sins. Unfortunately, autistics cannot lie, repent of their lies, or use their lies to save others. Then, should we trust a lying tyrant to save the world? The "logos heuristics" appears to agree with such an absurd proposition.
In B, an ideal circular temple of Göbekli-Tepe (built by hunter-gatherers in 11,000 BCE [Before the Common Era]) stands as a metaphor for the distributed organization of the human mind. If they overcome the fear of their enemies, the chosen martyrs, who learn in infancy how to shoot a bazooka before they learn by heart (without reading them) the verses of their preferred Sacred Text, will die surrounded by their given clarity, as do the obedient followers who will die in the cognitive trap of the finite autistic side of their minds. Today, many Russians flee their country because they do not want to become cannon meat for the militaries commanded by Putin.
If they escape the trap of madness (-1), however, tyrants and their corrupt associates will die without finding the decoherence door to a better Vision of the Third Attention and their own Third Point. In reality, men- and women-of-knowledge, capable of crossing walls through the nothingness of Coincidence, do not need to open a closed door to reach a Vision of the Third Attention and their Third Point (at the center of an ideal circular Temple at Göbekli-Tepe).
Ancient Egyptians (C) built in 10 thousand BCE their first Giza's Sphinx (2) in the image of a saber-tooth tiger ('Abu Alhul,' or the Father of Terror), a metaphor for the destructive and creative power of the 2nd attention. However, around 2,580 BCE, Pharaoh Khufu re-sculpted the head of Giza's tiger in the image of his head. That trick, which transformed the second into the Third attention, convinced Egyptian commoners of the immortality of the Pharaoh buried in a pyramid and of their possibility to share his wonderful resurrection.
The same beliefs animated the people who built the circle of Stonehenge around 5,000 BCE. In any circle, every finite radius that leaves the circumference reaches the nothingness that welcomes an infinite number of finite radii at the same time in its center. Stonehenge shows that any circle is a metaphor for the alliance of finiteness with infinity into nothingness.
Although they cannot enter the infinity of quantum coherence, and even less the nothingness of decoherence, autistic children are fond of rotating circular lids on the floor, as if they were missing the freedom to choose between the maliciousness of the devil and the grace of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
Perhaps, as early as the third millennium BCE (D), the Yellow Emperor or an unknown Sage devised in China the circular yang-yin symbol, well known by Laozi and his Taoism in the 6th century BCE. With the Yang-Yin circle, the Yellow Emperor pointed at the meeting of the first with the second attention, even beyond the amity of opposites in the second attention.
The Hindu centered the same meaning in the OM syllable (pronounced "aaaaauuuummmm"). They sought to reflect the three components of the Third Attention in the embrace (Brahma or "m") of Vishnu (the preserver or "a") and Shiva (the destroyer) or "u". The Hindu Trimurti and the syllable OM stand at the center of the Hindu Dharma and of all religions.
The need to ally finiteness with infinity through nothingness, hidden in the heart of the dwellers of any country and of their leader, was known to the priests of the ancient Egyptian "House of Thoth," to Moses, and to Queen Nefertari (F), the main wife of Pharaoh Ramses II. Moses and Aaron placed the Thummim and Urim crystals in their Ark (G), under a veiled truth. The mariners of the Queen of Sheba (who visited King Solomon and saw the Ark) possibly brought that meaning into the Olmecs, and ultimately into the Aztec myth of the return of Quetzalcoatl (H) under the protection of the goddess Coatlaxopeuh (or Shekhinah in the Jewish Kabbalah).
In modern times, autistics cannot seize either the malice of the Green Goblin (a metaphor for the devil) or the advice of Uncle Ben (a metaphor for the Virgin of Guadalupe); and schizophrenics cannot step into the shoes of Spider-man. The former cannot go; and the latter cannot return.
Neither autistics nor schizophrenics can follow without help the primeval grace of Coatlaxopeuh (the Virgin of Guadalupe, Tonantzin, Coatlicue, or Shekhinah) to convert our inner exploring Quetzalcoatl from a demon into a Saint. Putin could repent and follow the example of Saint George (z) in killing his inner dragon.
Very few people in the world are aware of the reality of the Third Attention. Very few people know that we can resurrect (through our own Third Point) if we help others before dying. Will Ukrainians and Russians repent, forgive, and resurrect, instead of dying under a global-warming avalanche?
