Questions and Answers on topics of this website
The three major sections of this website (Ken Wilber’s AQAL Map, Health, and Laughter) overlap, that is, each one contains also some of the topics of the others. The Quotes, About me, and Questions and Answers comprise ideas of all three major sections in addition to other topics .
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. And, like 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 is called no-mind in Zen-Buddhism and Mind (with a capital M, that is, Big Mind) in Tibetan Buddhism.
