I understand that matter, feelings and thoughts belong to the world of opposites 2. If we become aware of how they act in us, we transcend these 3 levels of the material world and embark on the way to the 4th level 3. In the same way, LIGHT 4 is then able to flood down from above, uniting the 3 lower levels with its radiance.
Lili Strausz, Talking with Angels, Dialogue 32
2. “The world of opposites” is another way of saying mundane world.
3. The fourth level corresponds with the creative power Faith.
4. Light is similar in meaning to intent.
When we activate Transcend the Mundane (a fusion of Faith, Openness and Groundedness — the creative powers represented by the three pink dots the image above), the top of our head becomes an imaginary antenna or satellite dish. Together with the imaginary earth rod connecting the tailbone to the ground beneath our feet, we are able to receive and channel intent, the generative impulse that streams from the unmanifest into the manifest through the gap in time.
Activation of Transcend the Mundane enables activation of the superpower Enrich the World, formed of Imagination and Realisation. With this superpower, we are able to foresee world enrichment possibilities and conceive truly original ideas for new creations with the potential to generate the imagined value, meaning and joy. This superpower also assists us in work aimed at realising the value generation potential of the new creations.
Activation of Transcend the Mundane also enables activation of the superpower Create the New, formed of Conceptualisation and Manifestation, whereby we are able to flesh out embryonic concepts, give them existence in the manifest realm and introduce our creations to the world at large.
My brain is only a receiver. In the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.
… reason gets a C when it comes to the inner world, because the rational mind doesn’t even know where an idea comes from, much less the source of creativity, insight, love, beauty, imagination, and many other aspects of mind. Consciousness cannot be explained objectively, despite the hopes and claims of neuroscience. The brain functions like a radio, delivering the music of the mind, as it were.

An alternative Bergsonian [philosopher Henri Bergson—see below] understanding of the function of the brain is that it acts as a type of “receiver,” somewhat similar to a radio or television set. Drawing upon this second metaphor, Bergson postulates that the neurochemical activity of the brain does not produce consciousness, but rather enables the brain to “tune into” appropriate “frequencies” of preexisting levels of consciousness—that is, the states of consciousness that correspond to waking life, dreaming, deep sleep, trance, as well as, at least potentially, the consciousnesses of other beings. Just as the programs received by a television set are not produced by the electrical activity within the television itself, but rather exist independently of the television set, in the same way, this Bergsonian understanding of the brain/consciousness relationship postulates that consciousness is neither contained within nor produced by the brain.
G. William Barnard in his book Living Consciousness: The Metaphysical Vision of Henri Bergson, p. xxxiii, citing philosopher Henri Bergson
Imagine that you are a Kalahari Bushman and that you stumble upon a transistor radio in the sand. You might pick it up, twiddle the knobs, and suddenly, to your surprise, hear voices streaming out of this strange little box. … Now let’s say you begin a careful, scientific study of what causes the voices. You notice that each time you pull out the green wire, the voices stop. When you put the wire back on its contact, the voices begin again. … You come to a clear conclusion: The voices depend entirely on the integrity of the circuitry. At some point, a young person asks you how some simple loops of electrical signals can engender music and conversations, and you admit that you don’t know—but you insist that your science is about to crack that problem at any moment.
