Ken Wilber, the AQAL Map, Better Health and Laughter – Integral Visions

An extension of Ken Wilber's AQAL map and integral philosophy; better health through healing thinking (fuzzy logic and both/and logic), Alfred Korzybski's healthy language-behaviour, and a dynamic mandala encompassing the nonduality of wholeness, fragmentation, and the unnamable.
Also information on Rolf Sattler and his contributions to plant morphology, general science, philosophy, and spirituality.
This website is dedicated to Alfred Korzybski and Ken Wilber, although I am critical of the latter in several ways.

Questions and Answers on topics of this website

My critical appreciation of Ken Wilber, his comprehensive AQAL map and integral philosophy leads to an even more comprehensive map, the dynamic mandala, a map of maps that complement one another in a playful way of healing tolerance.

How do I see the connection between Ken Wilber and his AQAL map on the one hand, and health (through healing thinking) and laughter on the other hand? The AQAL map implies healthy thinking and healing thinking to a great extent. I emphasize, however, modes of thinking and logic that heal to a still greater extent. In this connection I also emphasize the enormous importance of Korzybski's contributions to language-behaviour. And, like Korzybski and Wilber, I suggest that ultimately we have to go beyond all thought and thinking. Dance and laughter are two easily approachable doors that can lead from the thinking mind to what has been called no-mind or Big Mind.
