Ken Wilber, the AQAL Map, Health and Laughter: Science, Philosophy, and Spirituality

An extension of Ken Wilber's integral AQAL map, healing thinking (logic), proper language, and a dynamic mandala encompassing the nonduality of the unnamable mystery, wholeness and fragmentation.

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.
