Introduction to Unitary Perception University of Guadalajara, México

Mankind rediscovers Unitary Perception, in the 20th Century, thanks to Jiddu Krishnamurti and the dialogues held by the undersigned with him and with Prof. David Bohm for more than 10 years, since March 1975.
What has been recovered, for those who study this subject seriously, is a brain function, which has been without use for thousands and thousands of years.
This function is the complete awakening, the complete incarnation in one’s own body, which happens as a second awakening, after sleep ends.
This complete awakening, this complete conscious incarnation in one’s own body is Unitary Perception.
In the decade of dialogues I had with Bohm and Krishnamurti, we called it initially “Triangular Consciousness.”
In intense Observation, both the Observer and the Observed become irrelevant.
That intense Observation is the most important conscious activity. We called it “Unitary Perception” instead, because it is a better name, from the epistemological point of view.
The word “consciousness” doesn’t have a solid definition yet.
The theory of consciousness is fragmented and confusing, since language limits and distorts consciousness.
Very different words like Mind, memory, conduct, wakefulness, self, emotion, thought and knowledge, are still used instead of “consciousness.” 
In Unitary Perception only intense Observation occurs, in which that product of thought, which is Self, is dissolved. 
John tells me that when he awakens in the morning he is John and not Ruben. 
But John with lowercase “j,” from the dreams of the sleeping John with Capital “J,” disappears when John with Capital “J” wakes up. 
But, more than that, if John with Capital “J” goes from his ordinary wakefulness, in Fragmentary Perception (Precinct C), to the True Wakefulness of Precinct B, in Unitary Perception, John with Capital “J” disappears in the unconscious as well. 
That is to say; in the pure, intense Observation of Unitary Perception, the Observer ends. 
But in the functional Precinct C, the self organizes memory to operate and predict in the environment. 
Even this functional self may disappear in Unitary Perception, when operating and predicting are not necessary. 
But there is not an anatomical nervous center which functions as a “self.” 
Memory produces the self to give itself continuity, but there is no brain center which we may call “self.” 
The “SELF” is a product of thought, nothing more and nothing less.
Unitary Perception is not sensory perception. With some semantic flexibility, we have to differentiate the interpretation which happens in sensory perception, from the absence of interpretation of Unitary Perception. 
In Unitary Perception, perception occurs BEFORE the intervention of thought as interpretation.
It is very interesting that the best brains of the 20th Century were unable to conceive anything in the human mind, other than thought, memory and knowledge.
This also became the impossibility to discover that which exists beyond thought.
In this they were not different, (with the exception of Leibniz with his concept of Monad, or of David Bohm, with his concept of Holokinesis) from the best brains of the last 300 years.
For example, Alfred North Whitehead writes “Science and the Modern World”. There he quotes Descartes saying, in the chapter “Science and Philosophy”:
“I believe to see light, listen to sound and feel heat, this can’t be false. This is what in me is adequately called Perceiving (Sentire in Latin), which is nothing but thought.”
Obviously, Descartes not only doesn’t perceive unitarily, but he starts by calling his perceptions “belief.” 
He reduces his perceptions to an absolutistic form of thinking, which is belief. 
For Descartes perceiving, feeling and thinking are the same thing! 
This is still a common way of thinking. 
In many languages, like German, there is not much difference between perception and thought. 
That’s why we are aware, that in spite of using a simple and polished language, it can still be difficult to understand what we say: that Unitary Perception is the most important fact of the mind, the least known, and that thinking about Unitary Perception is not Unitary Perception. 
We also say that rational thinking is not permanently necessary. 
On top of that, it can be encompassed by Unitary Perception. 
It is possible to merely think about Unitary Perception, but this is only a thought. 
Nevertheless, to think while we are in Unitary Perception is something profound and complete, which goes way beyond thought. 
The great Whitehead also quotes Henry Sidgwick: “It is the primary goal of philosophy to completely unify, to bring to a clear coherence, all the departments of rational thought.” 
With these reductionistic precedents, it will be, maybe, difficult to accept or understand what we say; that thought may unify little fragments of reality to build a bigger fragment of it (for example a scientific theory ), but the contact with undivided reality may only happen beyond thought, through the narrow door of Unitary Perception. 
In Unitary Perception we don’t “unify”, but simply become aware that “everything is united”. 
Whitehead seems to block that understanding when he insinuates that “Leibniz and the novelty of his monads, belong to the extremes which lie beyond the limits of a safe philosophy”. 
Whitehead expels Leibniz from his own conception of philosophy when he places Leibniz outside philosophy, due to his concept of Monad. 
Of course, Whitehead didn’t know yet that in 1957 Leith and Upatnicks would build the Hologram at the University of Michigan (USA), based upon directions from Denis Gabor, who himself had used Leibniz’s Differential Calculus.
When Gabor gets his Nobel Prize, the written work of Leibniz is published again in Europe, 200 years after the death of Leibniz. 
Surprisingly enough, even today, at the beginning of the 21st Century, the influence of Descartes and Whitehead is much greater than that of Leibniz, Gabor and the Hologram. 
Whitehead conceives religion merely as “a way of thinking.” 
Jiddu Krishnamurti has said, talking about the undersigned, in London-1985 ( I translate partially from English - DVD # 4 de “Facing a World in Crisis”):
“And also we should talk about together what is religion, what is the nature of the brain that lives religiously? Religion has become very important in our lives. You may be atheists, you may say, “Well it is nonsense, some stupid priest preaching about some nonsense.” You may shun all that but yet inwardly demand, inwardly saying, “After all, what is all this about, this living and dying, this pain, this anxiety, what is it all about? Who created it? God? Nature? The first cell?” and so on. So religion is concerned not with all the rubbish, circus that is going on, whether in Rome, or in England, or in Benares in India, or in the Buddhist countries, it is all put together by thought, and therefore very, very, very limited. So we have to ask what is religion and creation?
What is creation? 
Is there a difference between creation and invention? 
We were talking the other day with an excellent doctor, really first-class doctor, not a doctor who makes money but a good doctor with a good brain. 
He was saying there is a certain part of the brain that can always be activated. I may be misrepresenting, careful, don’t accept entirely what the speaker is saying about that. 
There is a certain part of the brain, he mentioned some technical word which I didn’t know, that as one gets ill that gets a little bit dull, as one gets older that gets still more dull. And whether that inner part of the brain can be revived, made alive –right? Don’t accept it. Don’t go to sleep. We were talking about it – I won’t go into it because it is too complex. So what is invention and what is creation? Religion is concerned with this. And can the brain, which is conditioned, shaped, molded by all those kinds of things, community, what you read, what you hear, all the priests that have been promulgating some ideas, some worship, some gods, all that has conditioned our brain. 
Can our brain, yours and... our brain, can that brain ever understand what is creation? 
Or is it based fundamentally on knowledge, which is experience, gathering, learning, memorizing and so on? Can that brain understand that which is not measurable? 
You understand? 
Are we somewhat together in this? 
We will never use the word meditation anymore. I hope you don’t mind. That word implies also measurement in Sanskrit as well as in Etymological dictionaries. Measurement. Not only the measurement of cloth and all the material things, but also measuring ourselves against something. Measurement was invented by the Greeks and probably before them, and that without measurement there is no technological world. And we carry on that same principle in ourselves, we are always measuring how we are today and hope tomorrow will be the same or wish it to be different. It is always comparing, judging, evaluating. And the word “meditation”, that word which has become so mutilated by the gurus who have brought various forms of meditation –we won’t discuss that word anymore because it has become a stupid word. 
Sitting in a certain posture, breathing in a certain way, concentrating, and all that –making tremendous effort to achieve what? Some carrot before the donkey?”
The tremendous importance of having re-discovered Unitary Perception deserves the study of the written work about this subject as well as constant dialogue to clarify what Unitary Perception is and what it is not.
Unitary Perception is the ultimate essence of psychotherapy. That essence is not in the past, or in delving into the past. It is a brain function, that’s why it is not a theory, a belief, a philosophy or a psychological technique.
Unitary Perception is a fact of the mind, not yet studied in Academic Psychology. It is as important as memory or thought.
Unitary Perception occurs only in the present, but we can’t say it is to live in the present.
The present can be lived in three different Mind Precincts: C, B and A.
I have said many times that Unitary Perception is the most important fact in human psychology.
This may sound “absolutistic”, but I only try to inform about something I have lived in my own experience, and not something I read.
I say metaphorically, in spite of my desire not to use metaphors, in order not to create confusion about such an important matter, that there are three psychological precincts, but we know only one. 
This is all we know, it is our psychological prison; “Precinct C”.
In that small psychological circle there is room for language, symbol, number, memory, imagination, fantasy, thought, belief, ideologies, science, metaphysics, western and eastern philosophies, etc. Precinct C is the known, that is to say, pure thought. 
Eastern thought is only thought and with thought we can’t go beyond it. But beyond thought and words, beyond the “SELF”, in our own mind, is Unitary Perception. 
Within Precinct C, the known, we have all the products of thought: temples, organizations so called “religious”, hierarchies, free or well paid rites, music, etc.
The sacred begins beyond the known, once we abandon the known, and true, honest life begins in Unitary Perception. 
In the original Christian Gospel, this could be studied under the Greek word “metanoia”, which means “to go beyond thought”, later mistranslated as “repentance” or “conversion”.
It can be very touching to understand that 99 % of all human beings are born and later live, reproduce, get educated, work and die in Precinct C of the mind: only memory, thought, imagination and “SELF”. 
An imaginary life. 
The language of Precinct C: 
The egocentric, hypnotic and temporal (time-bound) languages utilized in everyday life, as we know it in Precinct C, start to disappear spontaneously when one lives in Precinct B (Unitary Perception).
Thanks to Unitary Perception one realizes the irrelevance of time, the generalized hypnosis in which we live, and the growing egocentricity of mankind. 
Those three languages are used in hypnotic and psychotherapeutic techniques, all a product of thought and its fragmentary perception.
The overvaluation of thought, which makes us believe that there is nothing outside Precinct C (outside the known) has brought human degeneration, part of which is seen in the growing division among human beings, as rich and poor, nations, beliefs, organized religions, ideologies and diverse philosophies. 
But there is another psychological precinct, which is called the “Precinct B”, the good space of the mind. 
Its laws and its functioning are not the ones of Precinct C. 
The Observer (you and I) may think and talk about Precinct B, but that is not the way to enter into it. 
To think and to talk about Precinct B continues to be Precinct C.
Precinct B is Unitary Perception, which I define as perceiving everything perceptible at the same time, with the mind in complete silence. 
If thought and unspoken language continue (in spite of trying to stop them for a moment) then thought and unspoken language have to be perceived as if they were another sound. 
In Unitary Perception one does not listen to “something”. All the sound is perceived at the same time, in mental silence, without naming the sounds. 
All my Written Work deals with this matter, which I consider to be the most important one for mankind: Unitary Perception. 
If one lives in Precinct B, which encompasses C, not as a momentary technique, but as a constant way of life, then Precinct A, or THAT –the sacred; the indescribable and indefinable- may occur as a contingency (and not as a consequence). “THAT” is the celestial vault of psychology. 
Precinct A is the cosmic consciousness, the universal mind, which is perceived psychologically as harmony, order, the joy of life, being content for no reason, great energy, concretely felt in the whole body, and love for all living creatures. 
I have lived in that space of the sacred, an ineffable blessing. 
When I tried to describe my experience in Precinct A, my Christian friends said that the Holy Spirit had visited me. Among the ones that said so, was the Custodian of the Holy Sepulcher, the Franciscan monk and priest Rafaele Angelisanti. 
My friends in India said I was a Boddhisatva Viriadika. In India, some saw me as an enlightened being. 
When I told Jiddu Krishnamurti, in 1979 that THAT has come to me, he said he knew it. Later he asked me: “Speak and expect no-thing.” 
Enlightenment is essentially being aware that all human beings are ONE. 
Enlightenment can’t be achieved by “the self” and it doesn’t make one infallible or perfect, without defect. A true enlightened person doesn’t pretend to be free of the weaknesses inherent to the human condition. Enlightenment doesn’t provide any authority, above friendship. 
I say all this, because there IS such a thing as enlightenment, and because there is a contemptuous attitude towards this word, which has to end. 
Psychology as we know it, and ALL we know, is only Precinct C. This is a narrow vault, dominated by language, number and symbol. Human beings live constantly in it, without exit, like in an eternal nightmare. In Precinct C we live a symbolized, imaginary life, not true life. True life starts in B.
Precinct C is functional in science, as we know it, but beyond its functional use it is the source of conflict (repetitive fear, anger and sorrow). 
Non-functional thought is a conflictive nightmare, a nightmare of wakefulness. 
From this nightmare (Precinct C) one exits only by attempting to live in Unitary Perception (Precinct B).
The awakening from the constant nightmare of mankind is to start living in Unitary Perception. 
Do you understand the tremendous importance of Precinct B? 
The different psychological techniques we know are a product of thought, and they help the observer to adjust to the nightmare of non-functional Precinct C.
Unitary Perception encompasses Precinct C. 
This means it is possible to think and memorize very well in Unitary Perception. 
But it is not with thought and memory that we enter Precinct B. 
It is not possible to be psychologically free, or to know love, deep intelligence or joy for no reason, until one lives constantly in Precinct B (Unitary Perception). 
The whole of mankind is trapped in Precinct C, ignoring Precinct B. That’s why economic, moral and spiritual misery grow. 
In this psychological slavery, mankind looks for a solution to its many problems, without recognizing that the fragmentary perception of thought can only create problems, not solve them. 
The three Precincts are in our Central Nervous System, (in our body-mind) and that’s why I say there is no way out, except in Unitary Perception. 
It is useless to try to live in Precinct A from Precinct C (what we know). 
One doesn’t enter the sacred space by will, by mind control or with any drug. 
But if we try to live in Unitary Perception, the sacred can frequently be felt. 
It is not possible to enter Precinct A by will. 
Access to A is only through B. 
How to be in B 
The description of Unitary Perception is, at the same time, the way to be in it. 
Listen well to this: Unitary Perception is to perceive everything perceptible at the same time in complete mental silence. If the noise of non-functional thought persists, then Unitary Perception perceives thought as if it was another sound within all the sound that is being heard at the same time. 
No effort or complication is needed to listen completely. If you are not doing it now you are procrastinating Unitary Perception. 
If we compare Unitary Perception with anything we know, we are abandoning Precinct B to go back to the more familiar Precinct C.
Please discover all this by yourself, don’t let it be only a beautiful tale of Ruben (the speaker). 
We have to earn our bread decently, without plundering legally or illegally, without selling weapons, or alcoholic beverages, or tobacco cigarettes, or street drugs, or children’s body organs, for example.
But the functional thought we all need to earn our bread doesn’t have to be anything problematic. 
Fear, anger and sorrow enter survival when the known wants to be “doubly known” through fame, prestige, hierarchy, when we want to be more important than others. 
The problem of survival begins when one wants to be recognized, not to ever be forgotten. 
But if we observe all this in Unitary Perception the problem immediately ceases to exist. 
It is important to understand that when we learn the definition of Unitary Perception, this is a cumulative learning within Precinct C. 
What we learn inevitably becomes something known. 
But in Precinct B (Unitary Perception) NON-CUMULATIVE learning starts. 
Precinct B encompasses C, but it doesn’t happen the other way around. 
Being in Unitary Perception, one can speak about it and teach it to others. 
But more often we speak about Unitary Perception without being in Unitary Perception. 
C is all we know, therefore it is more familiar to us. 
That’s why I say that mankind lives in the psychological prison of Precinct C, and that even after a few minutes of living in Unitary Perception, most probably we will go back to C. 
What I did with my wife and my friends is a deal to remind each other constantly of B.
That deal is the most important thing in marriage and friendship. 
This deal shouldn't mean to condemn each other for not being in B. 
But the deal is only to remind each other of the psychological space where the deepest peace exists (a peace without anger or sorrow, without envy or the wish to be better than others). 
The intelligence of C is not enough to understand B.
A perceptual mutation is necessary. 
Unitary Perception has to start without effort. One has to constantly perceive everything perceptible, at the same time, in great mental silence. 
It is unusual to take this seriously, day after day, from moment to moment. 
It is not possible to conceive B from C. 
One has to jump to B, something only possible in Unitary Perception. 
This is the greatest leap the individual mind can make by will. 
My book in English is entitled: “The Great Leap of Mind.” 
In C there is gross or subtle conflict. 
When we remember “good things from the past” there is great degenerative and subtle conflict, but this can be realized only in Unitary Perception. 
Thought invents realities parallel to true reality. 
You must have heard many tales, so called “spiritual”, which are known as “the paths of the New Age.” 
But true reality can only be perceived in Unitary Perception. 
The structure of our Central Nervous System determines that there is only one way to true life: Unitary Perception. 
But it is not a way, because it starts right here, where we are right now. 
Are we doing it? 
Unitary Perception is not something else in life. It is life.
Unfortunately, most human beings prefer to live in the invented realities of thought. 
There is a hunger for abstractions and philosophical, ideological, literary and metaphysical narratives that stop us from living true life in Unitary Perception. 
Unitary Perception is the only way for us to be happy in what one does, loving without conflict, loving without expecting love in return
True relationship occurs only in the immediate present in Unitary Perception. 
We have to stop imagining life and start to live truly right now. 
If we ask ourselves why human beings do not live in economic equality and why wars have not ended after 5000 years of written history, we now have the answer: mankind was not functioning with the whole of its brain. 
What sees is all there is and in that immensity there is love and happiness. 
We could say that what sees is Universal Consciousness. 
Universal Consciousness sees me through your eyes. 
Thought invents parallel realities, fragmentary realities, which are isolated from that which sees. 
What sees has nothing to do with the self, invented by individual and collective thought, and which carries our own name. 
The self does not see, because the self doesn’t do any action. 
We say “I breathe”. That is not so, the self doesn’t breathe, but breathing is occurring. 
We say “I sleep”. That is not true. The self doesn’t sleep. Sleep happens. 
Insomnia happens and no one can sleep by will. 
We say “I grow”. Not true either. 
That’s why it is so important to be aware by oneself that what sees is covered by images, symbols and words invented by thought. 
Breathing and sleeping are brain functions (unconscious). They are not a product of human thought. 
Unitary Perception is also a (conscious) brain function, which is not a product of thought. 
It is possible to talk, walk, take a bath, to work, to be silent, to rest in Unitary Perception. 
That’s why we say that Unitary Perception can be the Foundation of all human action, if one attempts to live in it constantly, as a way of life. 
Unitary Perception is defined as “Being aware of everything perceptible, at the same time, right now, without naming that which is perceived, without comparing and without effort”. 
In this definition of Unitary Perception we have, at least four elements:
1. Being aware implies the FACT of being conscious of something. Even the contents of the unconscious go through consciousness. But only in Unitary Perception we become conscious of the contents of the unconscious, because it provides the necessary peace without duality and without choice. That is the peace which allows us to perceive things in the mind such as they are, without the intention to change them. 
2. Everything perceptible means we are not aware of something (only), but of everything that crosses our field of perception. For example: we not only hear the bird chirps, if we walk through a forest, but all the sounds that reach our hearing (from the brain itself). 
3. At the same time implies that if we want the brain to operate as a unit, expressing its maximum potential, it is necessary to perceive everything perceptible at the same time. No effort is needed. It is a way of life.  Gravity (weight), sound and the visual field can be perceived at the same time, in quietude and peace. 
4. Right Now implies the only time in which Unitary Perception is possible. 
To think about Unitary Perception is to procrastinate THE FACT of Unitary Perception which only happens in the NOW. 
The deep peace generated immediately by Unitary Perception, is the necessary psychological mutation. 
Then we have a way of living, seeing and listening which we don’t know. 
The words with which we interpret the FACT of seeing and listening at the same time STOP the listening and seeing in this new way: at the same time.
The 20th Century starts in 1905 with the publication of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. The scientific world is moved. 
De Broglie speaks in 1922 about the Quantum Paradox: the electron is a particle and a wave at the same time. 
In the 50’s the hologram appears, a photographic technology in which the relativity of space-time is confirmed. 
In Psycho-neurology Karl Pribram coins the term Holographic (holonomic) memory. 
Memory is located in the whole brain, and not in a center so called “engram.” 
In Physics emerges David Bohm with his theory of Holokinesis, the cosmic hologram in movement, and not fixed in a plane. 
Bohm says that Holokinesis is the movement occurring in the whole cosmos, from here to here, between the Explicate Order of Matter-Mind-Energy and the Implicate Order (right here) in Matter-Mind-Energy. 
Creation is scientifically presented by Bohm, for the first time in written history. The interpretation of Matter-Mind-Energy changes. Mind is now seen as the universal interface between universal matter and energy.
Mind is as universal as light (energy) and sodium (matter).
The notion of Movement changes, which, as well as being from here to there, can now be from here to here.
David Bohm formulated this mathematically in 1986. The Paradox of Movement of David Bohm.
This is the equivalent of saying that a family could have lived with an elephant in the dining room for 10 years and that nobody noticed. Suddenly one of the children (equivalent to David Bohm) denounces the fact and not everyone in the family wants to notice it.
With this, the interpretation of time changes, which is now irrelevant, as was discovered by David Bohm, as well as being absolute for Newton and relative for Einstein.
This obliges us to radically change the language of Psychology, which is now, for the first time scientific. Epistemology changes. Hermeneutics changes.
This obliges us not to mix this language with the Psychologies that came before Holokinetic Psychology.
Of course it becomes imperative to redefine the word “mind.” 
Now mind is not only the product of the interaction between the observer and his environment from uterus to death. 
Mind is also Unitary Perception, that is to say, the conscious contact of the brain with the energy of Holokinesis. 
Sigmund Freud had described the epigenetic memory. Now we have to talk of genetic, homeostatic, perinatal, epigenetic and holokinetic mind. 
The holokinetic mind is Unitary Perception. 
Now we speak in Scientific Psychology of two orders of the mind (implicit and explicit) and of three Precincts: A, B and C.
The implicit order is not the unconscious. 
Thought is 99% unconscious and incoherent, as memory and “SELF”.
But Unitary Perception is only conscious during wakefulness. And it is part of S-4 sleep (NREM-4).
Professor David Bohm wrote, in 1984, an introduction for my second book “La Percepción Unitaria” (Editorial Orion-México). 
That was a very agitated year in my personal life and I came to forget that introduction. The book was published without it. 
In the beginning of the year 2000, 16 years later, a friend  rediscovered that introduction of five pages, which ends like this: 
“When I started to investigate in new areas, I collaborated with Albert Einstein and met Jiddu Krishnamurti. I worked as the Dean of the Secondary School that he founded in Brockwood Park, close to London. 
I started to observe the operation of the mind itself, and not only the world of nature. 
In reality we have to go further than the realm of Quantum Physics, or even the scientific thought in general, to the more fundamental question of what constitutes the process of thinking. 
I realized the ways in which fragmentary thought takes shape, and the almost imperceptible tendency to believe that those divisions correspond with the actual structure of reality. 
My thesis is a new point of departure for a real study of the relationship between consciousness and thought. 
The appearance of the written work by Rubén Feldman-González, constitutes an innovation and a breakthrough in the field of psychology. His work deals with the implicate and the explicate orders of reality and of how they relate to psychotherapy, education and human relationship in general". 
David Bohm, 1984. 
Thought produces the self to provide continuity to memory. The self, as the thought and the memory which originate it, is mostly unconscious and incoherent. In the unconscious self palpitate the murderer and the suicidal persons, as can be read in my article “El Pensamiento Asesino” ("Murderous thought").
With the emergence of “self”, the origin of all conflict is born. We call this emergence “horizontal conflict”, which we define as the belief that the observer is inexorably separated from the observed. 
The “self” may make us mistakenly believe that Unitary Perception is another knowledge. In such a way C “swallows” B and the real experience of Unitary Perception becomes impossible. 
This, unfortunately, for being such a familiar thing for the central nervous system, happens quite frequently, even after taking a workshop about Unitary Perception or reading the recommended literature. 
  1. The complexity of Precinct C is understood when we speak about the M.E.T.A. process, Mnemonic, Eidetic, Thymic and Autonomic, which is a new vision of how our thought works individually and collectively. 
  2. This new study of thought is complemented by the fact that the perception of thought is fragmentary, something necessary for survival on earth. 
  3. It is understood how individual and collective thought, both conscious and unconscious is a form of hypnosis, by analyzing Bernheim’s experience.
  4. In my book in Spanish  “The Unitary Perception” I have included a recorded dialogue, which I had with a Professor in Caracas, Venezuela, under the title “Dialogue with a Princess” , in which one clearly sees how a simple poem, learned in childhood, can hypnotically condition a person to live her life (devastatingly) according to the poem. 
  5. We can only imagine how our lives are determined and limited by popular songs, music, the words of our parents, grandparents and teachers, movies we have seen, etc. 
  6. This is proven as we live in Unitary Perception and see, day by day, each of our hypnotic conditionings: nationalism, belief, ideology and all the forms that human divisiveness has taken. 
  7. Paradox and comparison are inexorable parts of thought. 
  8. Even when Unitary Perception may be compared correctly with something known, the very act of comparison locates Unitary Perception in C, as a mere thought. But Unitary Perception may only truly happen in B.
  9. Thanks to a joke by Jiddu Krishnamurti we see that thought can provide an answer to any question, with or without understanding it, with or without moral integrity: 
  10. “A man asks the computer: does God exist? 
  11. The computer collapses. 
  12. After fixing the computer the same question is asked. 
  13. Now He does –the computer answered.” 
  14. Precinct C is the only thing known Psychology studies. 
  15. We have already discussed the Horizontal Conflict of thought. 
The belief in a divine spark within the observer makes us think of “the Self” as part of that spark.
From there the belief that “thought comes from the thinker.” 
Thought has been enormously overvalued. 
In fact the thinker is a product of thought. 
In Unitary Perception there is thought but not thinker. 
This doesn’t mean that there is not a Divine Spark in us. It simply means that there is no access to that Divine Spark by using thought. 
A mentally retarded person doesn’t understand Unitary Perception. 
A schizophrenic person doesn’t understand Unitary Perception. 
In cases of Attention Deficit, or Unipolar and Bipolar Depressions, it is necessary for the person to be under medication treatment, before trying to understand Unitary Perception. 
Mental Retardation exists in 3 % of the population. 
Schizophrenia exists in 1 % of the population. 
This means that 96 % of all human beings may recover Unitary Perception. 
Work stress, marriage stress, the inevitable interpersonal stress in a society based upon financial profit, fraud and plunder, the sale of weapons and the necessary invention of enemies to sell weapons, the stress derived from contempt of sleep, sleeping less than the necessary 9 hours a day, the biologic stress due to the lack of exercise or a well balanced diet, are all diagnosed by Unitary Perception. 
The attempt to be in Unitary Perception, by a stressed person may show the following signs: 
•    Drowsiness
•    Headache 
•    Tingling of hands and feet 
•    Palpitations 
If while attempting to be in Unitary Perception, one or more of those signs are recognized, one has to rationally plan the reduction of stress. 
If stress is not reduced, it may get complicated by the following problems: 
•    Gastritis 
•    High Blood Pressure 
•    Arthritis 
•    Low immunity 
•    Metabolic syndrome
•    Finally, little appreciation for life
The first benefit of Unitary Perception is the total and undistorted contact with reality. 
The very attempt to live in Unitary Perception (even if it is unsuccessful) immediately becomes deep peace and relaxation without words. 
In that peace all relationships improve. 
The body is regenerated, available energy increases and all physiologic functions are rejuvenated. 
Some diseases get cured.
There are cases of people cured from gastritis, arthritis, high blood pressure, sinusitis and respiratory allergy. We’re studying the recovery of a person in Mexicali, Mexico who had been declared terminally ill.
Some brain centers which stopped acting for lack of use get reawakened. 
The activity of these brain centers was known in India as “Siddhis.” 
Professor Pupul Jayakar, a counselor of Indira Ghandi, biographer of Jiddu Krishnamurti, a University expert in the Comparison of Religions, has said in India that Unitary Perception is the Maha Raja Yoga (the greatest and highest of Yogas). 
The meaning of Psychotherapy is to teach the transition from C to B. 
It is important to live in Unitary Perception, before trying to teach it. 
Holokinetic Theoretical Education about Unitary Perception may be necessary when the patient resists with rationalizations: “This is so silly, too simplistic, it has no relation to my problem or to my life.” 
It is advisable to sign a contract with the patient, with the commitment to participate in a minimum of 12 sessions of Unitary Perception, making it clear that it is not a technique, but a way of life, peaceful, responsible and compassionate. In this way of life fear and interpersonal hostility are seen daily (in Unitary Perception). 
Ask the patient to make a deal with spouse and friends to help each other to live in Unitary Perception. This deal is the most important thing in marriage or friendship. 
In the 45 minutes sessions, personal narratives are discouraged, mental silence is emphasized (without thought or spoken language), as well as Unitary Perception. 
Egocentric language is avoided (let’s achieve Unitary Perception), same as hypnotic language (let’s think positively) or the temporal one (time-bound). 
We have to speak this new language in Psychology, otherwise we will be contributing to the already existing confusion in the no-man’s-land of present Psychology. 
The language we have to speak has to be polished from the semantic and epistemologic points of view. 
This language has been confirmed by the individual experience of many investigators, including the speaker. This makes it simple and precise. But that simplicity in language is born from many scientific, epistemologic, exegetic and experiential insights. 
Without those insights, the same simple language can be used very inadequately. 
Our language has to fit the fact of Unitary Perception, which is the most important and the least known fact of the human mind. 
We also have to see our endless resistance to use the new language, conditioned, as we are, by the old incoherent language of the Psychology of the 20th Century. 
We started in 1986, with a new definition of the word “mind”, as we already saw. 
I’m teaching Unitary Perception in the whole planet, by University Invitations. 
We have to describe Unitary Perception after experiencing it.
We are used to rapid intellectual definitions or to mere comparisons between known facts.
In the last 30 years I have traveled through the whole world to speak about Unitary Perception and to initiate exploration groups to discover together what Unitary Perception is and what it is not.
After my seminars and workshops it is possible to take an optional examination. 
Its purpose is not to know whether the student is in Unitary Perception, but only to evaluate the capacity to speak about the subject with the adequate language. 
With an adequate language, our dialogues will be more clear and precise. 
We are talking about the most important thing in life. 
The examination allows us to know who are those with whom a serious dialogue is possible. 
Measures like this will be necessary, the more Unitary Perception penetrates education and the culture. 
Otherwise the fragmentary perception, which is the foundation of education and culture now, will distort Unitary Perception to the point of making it a mere concept, merely something else to know.
The motive of Unitary Perception is Global Perceptual Transformation, or the psychological mutation which is compatible with true life. 
In true life stress is reduced, silence grows, same as the love for silence. 
In true life austerity and simplicity become joyful, one looks for peace and follows it, without anxiety or effort, in the content for no reason. 
In true life one assumes the complete use of intelligence and excellence. 
Life in Unitary Perception is until death and in death, from fact to fact. 
The sacred (Precinct A of the mind) is not to be achieved. It comes when one lives constantly in Precinct B, which is Unitary Perception. 
The therapist has to understand counter-transference, in the forms of sexual attraction, rejection or indifference. 
This happens mostly when the person does not participate responsibly in the therapeutic act, and therefore does not change. 
Among the things that are seen, we have “the image of oneself” (the invention of what and how I am): angry, irritable, shy, talkative, gossipy, laconic, stubborn, Mexican, Serb, Bosnian, black, Catholic, communist, Muslim, etc. 
These images are part of the individual and collective conflict, manifested as fear, anger, sorrow, hostility, gossip and finally, the endless wars: Napoleonic wars, civil wars, neighbor wars, Opium Wars, Crimea, the First World War, The Second World War, The Cold War, Korea, Viet-nam, Santo Domingo, Guatemala, Cuba, Granada, Panama, Angola, Latin America, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Rwanda, Congo and the Long War of the 21-st Century, this time against an even undefinable “terrorism.” 
There has to be dialogue about the sentence: “What I am, what I was and what I will be are three things I don’t need” 
The daily constancy in attempting Unitary Perception, both in and out of the therapeutic session, reduces stress, increases immunity and regenerates the whole body. 
Energy is greatly increased, and some old men have said, after their first attempt at Unitary Perception: “I have felt the peace and the great energy for the first time in my life.” 
One has to learn to live without unnecessary symbols, specially the imagined word. 
The silent mind can listen to all sound at the same time, completely and deeply. 
Unnecessary memory and thought appear every time Unitary Perception stops. 
This happens many times a day. 
Energy is necessary to live in Unitary Perception. We need dialogue about all the things that extinguish our energy, due to lack of use of intelligence and discipline. 
They are: excessive food, excessive work, excessive talk, lack of sleep, drug and alcohol abuse, tobacco smoking, TV viewing for hours in a row, Internet abuse, videogames, etc. 
We need dialogue about the lack of silence spaces in our daily life. 
Jiddu Krishnamurti advises to build a room in the house, meant only to make silence.
Unitary Perception is the beginning of a deep global psycho-transformation, of immense benefit. 
This psychological mutation is invisible in the human being, and too big for words. 
In nature we have visible transformations, like the caterpillar that becomes a butterfly in its cocoon. 
We can say that Unitary Perception is the invisible psychological cocoon in the human being. 
The caterpillar doesn’t become a super-caterpillar, but something very different to what it was. 
And the same with man. 
The caterpillar doesn’t have hierarchies, as no serious man does. 
The caterpillar doesn’t follow the butterfly. The man who wants his transformation will not follow the transformed man. 
There is not gradual transformation, it is immediate. 
For real transformation, the caterpillar needs a cocoon, and man needs Unitary Perception. 
Transformation has to happen BEFORE death. 
There are no alternatives. For the caterpillar there is only the cocoon. For man there is only Unitary Perception. 
“One is the way, the truth and the true life”; Jesus Christ has said. 
“Having ears you do not listen, and having eyes, you do not see”; Jesus Christ has said. 
The only exit from the nightmare that man has made out of life is Unitary Perception. 
In order to act responsibly and effectively, in front of chaos, and not only the chaos left after Yugoslavia or the Soviet Union, Israel or Iraq, it is not intelligent to act as a Muslim, as a Hindu, as a Buddhist, Catholic, European or American, Latino, Jew or Arab. 
The one who has to respond is each one of us as a human being. 
The deep crisis in religion, the family, the economy, education, public health, the environment, occurs because we believe these are all separate problems. 
We need the psychological mutation of Unitary Perception to see the need to respond totally as a human being, in front of the chaos, which is obvious in all human activities in the whole planet. 
It is the mind that perceives in a fragmentary way, what has created the chaos in EVERYTHING human beings do. 
Order comes only from the psychological mutation of Unitary Perception. 
That order is generated by each human being by himself or herself. 
No human being can generate order and peace in another human being. 
That order and that peace, to be real, will not come in any other way but Unitary Perception. 
I have said in my book “Unitary Perception:” 
True liberation is perceptual, a liberation which destroys the ideological corrals, and the divisions among men: religious, political, national, philosophical, behavioral and emotional. 
Unitary Perception is the Global Liberation of the Human Being. 
  1. If you don’t do this, you can’t understand the differences between neuro-physiological precincts B and C.
  2. You can’t understand the subtlety of time and identity.
  3. You won’t see Unitary Perception from the viewpoint of all human activities and all their languages.
  4. You won’t learn how to express the necessary concepts, without the distortions of egocentricity, without temporality and without the influence of hypnosis.
  5. The second reading of the same text reveals new things, as happens with any book, but especially with the Written Work about Unitary Perception, in which EVERYTHING is new, even the comprehension of the old.
  6. Without repeated readings, words and facts which are essential for understanding are easily forgotten, therefore the attempt of Unitary Perception becomes “diluted” and less frequent. You forget that you should listen and see at the same time, or that it is not something to be achieved, but something that occurs right now. 
The complete and repeated reading strengthens the attempt and understanding of Unitary Perception.
