Noûs

Noûs
Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Dans l'Antiquité grecque, le noûs, nous, ou encore noos, est l'esprit, la partie la plus haute, la plus divine de l'âme. Pour Platon, noûs signifie le plus souvent l'intelligence. Plus loin, il écrit : « L'Essence (qui possède l'existence réelle), celle qui est sans couleur, sans forme et impalpable ; celle qui ne peut être contemplée que par le seul guide de l'âme, (le noûs) l'intelligence ; celle qui est la source du savoir véritable, réside en cet endroit. Pareille à la pensée de Dieu qui se nourrit d'intelligence et de science absolue, la pensée de toute âme, cherchant à recevoir l'aliment qui lui convient, se réjouit de revoir après un certain temps l'Être en soi, se nourrit et se rend bienheureuse en contemplant la vérité[1]... » Annexes[modifier | modifier le code] Bibliographie[modifier | modifier le code] Notes et références[modifier | modifier le code] Voir aussi[modifier | modifier le code]

Daniel Smith I believe that people are mostly at different levels of awareness or consciousness in their lives and that we look at life through our own set of glasses. Most of us are functioning based on ideas and theories that have been passed on from generation to generation and so we are seeing the world through our ideas and not necessarily looking at reality. As a species we have advanced tremendously in technology and commerce, but one thing we have neglected to advance in is consciousness, the ability to be awake in the world. Today’s society has become extremely efficient at doing things with little or no awareness, we just run on auto pilot. As we become more aware (wake up), our consciousness will evolve to higher levels and we will live our lives based on the set of values that will benefit everybody and not just ourselves.

Noos This article is about a philosophical term. For the philosophy journal, see Noûs. In philosophy, common English translations include "understanding" and "mind"; or sometimes "thought" or "reason" (in the sense of that which reasons, not the activity of reasoning).[2][3] It is also often described as something equivalent to perception except that it works within the mind ("the mind's eye").[4] It has been suggested that the basic meaning is something like "awareness".[5] In colloquial British English, nous also denotes "good sense", which is close to one everyday meaning it had in Ancient Greece. This diagram shows the medieval understanding of spheres of the cosmos, derived from Aristotle, and as per the standard explanation by Ptolemy. It came to be understood that at least the outermost sphere (marked "Primũ Mobile") has its own intellect, intelligence or nous - a cosmic equivalent to the human mind. Pre-Socratic usage[edit]

Art by George AthertonArt by George Atherton Geo made this piece while he was traveling in India, immersed in asana, pranayama, meditation and lucid dreaming. His studies and resulting experiences gave him a clearer image of the relationships between the Chakras, the nervous & endocrine systems, diet, Prana & Chi, and heightened spiritual experiences. He wanted to embed these teachings of inner balance into the symbolism of the piece. From Joseph Cambell’s Myths of Light: ‘The two spinal nerves at either side of the sushumna (central spinal channel), left and right, are, respectively, the channels of the female and the male energies (ida & pingala), which the ordered breathing of the yogi is to bring together. Moreover, the kundalini itself, the coiled serpent power, is conceived as female.’

10 Most Brilliant Social Psychology Experiments Ten of the most influential social psychology experiments. “I have been primarily interested in how and why ordinary people do unusual things, things that seem alien to their natures.Why do good people sometimes act evil?Why do smart people sometimes do dumb or irrational things?” Noetic theory In philosophy, noetics is a branch of metaphysical philosophy concerned with the study of mind and intellect. Noetic topics include the doctrine of the agent/patient intellect (Aristotle, Averroes)[1] and the doctrine of the Divine Intellect (Plotinus).[2] Contemporary use[edit] More recently[when?] the term "noetics" has been employed by several authors like Dan Brown in "the Lost Symbol" or others who write about consciousness and spirituality.

Gospel of John The Gospel of John (also referred to as the Gospel According to John, the Fourth Gospel, or simply John) is one of the four canonical gospels in the Christian Bible. In the New Testament it traditionally appears fourth, after the synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. John begins with the witness and affirmation of John the Baptist and concludes with the death, burial, resurrection, and post-resurrection appearances of Jesus. Chapter 21 states that the book derives from the testimony of the "disciple whom Jesus loved" and early church tradition identified him as John the Apostle, one of Jesus' Twelve Apostles. The gospel is closely related in style and content to the three surviving Epistles of John such that commentators treat the four books,[1] along with the Book of Revelation, as a single body of Johannine literature. According to most modern scholars, however, the apostle John was not the author of any of these books.[2]

William James Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact. William James (11 January 1842 – 26 August 1910) was a pioneering American psychologist and philosopher. He developed the philosophical perspective known as radical empiricism, and wrote influential books on the science of psychology, the psychology of religious experience and mysticism, and the philosophy of pragmatism. Quotes[edit] Noocracy Noocracy (/noʊˈɒkrəsi/ or /ˈnoʊ.əkrəsi/), or "aristocracy of the wise", as defined by Plato, is a social and political system that is "based on the priority of human mind", according to Vladimir Vernadsky.[citation needed] It was also further developed in the writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.[citation needed]

Gospel of Luke The Gospel According to Luke (Greek: Τὸ κατὰ Λουκᾶν εὐαγγέλιον, to kata Loukan euangelion), commonly shortened to the Gospel of Luke or simply Luke, is the third and longest of the four Gospels. This synoptic gospel is an account of the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. It details his story from the events of his birth to his Ascension. According to the preface,[1] the purpose of Luke is to write an historical account,[2] while bringing out the theological significance of the history.[3] Nevertheless, ancient authors emphasized plausibility rather than truth and mixed intentional fiction in with their biography; the claim that the evangelist wrote with historical intentions does not guarantee the preservation of historical facts. Most modern critical scholarship concludes that Luke used the Gospel of Mark for his chronology and a hypothetical sayings source Q document for many of Jesus's teachings. Title[edit]
