The Bicameral Mind, or Split Brain
When the corpus collosum is split surgically in epileptics, there becomes "two minds", with the right and left hemispheres acting and thinking separately. In normal people, the right and left hemispheres must act in an integrated, or at least semi-integrated manner, with the right hemisphere in charge of planning and organization,and the left in charge of speech and analyzing.
There are studies that show that we make some decisions before we consciously think about them. Is this the right hemisphere making these decisions, before the left(which we think of as "I" has a chance to analyze and come to a decision? Is the right hemisphere the "subconscious"? Does this subconscious have it's own sense of "I"? Does everyone really consist of two minds in one, that are so integrated, you can't tell the difference?
The Third Chakra and the Third Stage of Alchemy
I consider the seven chakras and the seven stages of alchemy to correspond. I think it is all the same thing, described in different ways. The third, or solar plexus chakra, deals with personal willpower, or choice. The third stage of alchemy deals with the separation of solar and lunar sides of the mind. I think this is the separation of the right and left hemispheres, or the two minds described above. (which is of course a psychic phenomena, and not a biological one). At this stage of alchemy, you "separate the wheat from the chaff", discarding the crap in your mind, bad behaviors, deciding what is morally good,and choosing to keep what is the good over the bad. Reintegration occurs at the fourth stage, conjunction. If you choose the crap at this stage, you do not reach conjunction, and do not evolve spiritually.
In my observation regarding the above matter at hand, the will has the opportunity to choose according to
A. what is one's duty/obligation/commitment
B. what is necessary for immediate life/survival
C. according to some free range random desire
It is interesting to contemplate where/how one could "go wrong."
Maybe A and B should be switched.
Your conclusion is interesting and seems to based on some sort of science, (of psyche/psychic phenomenon.)
"Conjunction" leading to "reintegration." Could you explain more about those stages?
You ask the question "Is the right hemisphere the "subconscious"?
I don't think so. I think that would be confusing psychology with parapsychology. The subconscious mind, or the soul mind, is separate from the brain and therefore separate from mind. In people who have awakened, they receive information as what some would call "intuition" and separate from the mind. If they stop to think about it and use the mind to analyze the information, the "gut feeling" is lost and the person is apt to use logic to make a decision. Human logic does not always work for the situation. At least as an awakening channeling person, that is the way it is to me.
... also " The Third Stage of Alchemy." What is alchemy in relation to the energy centers of the spine, otherwise known as chakras??
When you are going through a kundalini awakening, shakti is working on balancing your solar and lunar energies. As you progress through the lower to upper chakras, you are refining your spiritual energies, as well as sorting through and discarding the negative aspects(greed, selfishness, wrong beliefs etc) and keeping the positive aspects(selflessness, compassion etc)
the seven stages of alchemy are just another way of describing the journey upwards through the seven chakras.
Also note that Revelation of the Bible is a description of the alchemical/kundalini process as well. the chakras are the seven seals. opened by the LION OF JUDAH, the green lion of alchemy.

I don't think so. I believe that the sub-conscious mind already knows there is no god.The flight and fight mechanism is the driving force behind the need for a god, but the mind already knows it is a self preservation mechanism the conscious mind sets up to cope with the fear of dying.That is why...

Which part of our mind do we use more, the conscious or the unconscious?
by Richard J ONeill 2 years ago
I read recently that the subconscious part of our brain knows our decisions before we are even aware of them. I've heard this said over and over and not just by anyone but experts and doctors so it has to be true. That isn't my question however.I've always been intrigued by how sometimes I'll be...
